Floating Hearts Anniversary Card

Hope all the rhinestones does make it look like I'm over compensating for a boring design.  I have really been into simple designs lately.  I don't have as much time to create cards right now and I usually try to do something "clean and simple."  This was just made using some vanilla card stock for the base, some scrap purple cardstock and flower printed paper.  I dug through my "treasure box" and found these purple rhinestones that went perfect with the paper.  I used my computer to design the "happy anniversary" sentiment and the mom and dad wording.  So of course, I made this for my parents.  April 16 was their 54th Anniversary.  
Here's a photo of them taken Thanksgiving:  


They are awesome, aren't they? I'm truly blessed.

Two Weddings and an Anniversary...Cards.

Wedding Flowers
and Butterflies

Flower and butter punch, embossing folder and pearls.
Finished size is 3-1/2" x 7.
It's been a while since I've posted to my blog.  Things have been crazy with working full-time, being a mom and wife.  Recently, I've taken up couponing and while it saves us money, it certainly takes a lot of my time.  Also, I've had to give up my demonstrator status with Stampin' Up!  It was what had to happen right now because I do not have time to devote to creating projects for workshops and blog posts.  I'm just going to create projects for cards and gifts and for fun.  Speaking of creating cards, in this post, I am featuring cards I made this month.  Love is in the air and I made cards for two weddings and an anniversary.   While I may not be a demonstrator any longer, I am happy to provide you with any assistance you need in creating cards and other papercrafting projects.  Feel free to e-mail me at cindygrigiski@gmail.com if you have any questions about the projects in this post.

Clean And Simple Sympathy


Sorry it has been so long since I posted anything new.  Tonight my husband relayed a message from his secretary that they needed more sympathy cards to send to clients.  I had a short amount of time so I went with clean and simple white on white design.  The flowers are from the retired Stampin' Up! set Simply Soft (Hostess Set) and the With Sympathy is from a current set Teeny Weeny Wishes.  I colored in the flowers with Stampin' Write markers.  The sentiment is computer generated thanks to an internet search with the key words "business greeting cards sympathy" and printed using My Digital Studio (MDS).  Since the inside of the card was so plain, I stamped the flowers going off the page and colored them to match the front.  This design is really simple but and now that I'm looking at it again, it can also be taken up a notch by maybe rounding the corners of the top of the image panel.  Of course a ribbon could be added but since I wanted to keep it flat for mailing at the standard postage rate, I did not want to make it bulky.  Now I'm off to make some Valentine 
cards.  

Thanks for stopping by.

Wine, Women and Wisdom Group - Valentine Wine Bottle Tag and Gift Card -


This month I was honored to present the project for the monthly Wine Women and Wisdom group.  The theme was Valentine's day and I put together kits for the group to make hanging wine bottle tag and a 3 inch square gift card.  It was a small group his month but we had fun see below.



The kits to make the project were sold for $10 and the money was donated to a gofundme.com account of Katie Schlinger a young Florida woman who is the victim of a violent crime and had to undergo surgery for her extensive injuries and will have to undergo rehab.  You can read Katie's and donate on her gofundme.com page HERE

Thank you!
