  7. such a cute card, i think i'll make some... hey you should just try an alcohol wipe for your scissors, i actually keep some in my craft room just for cleaning my blades when they get gross, i know it wont help with the sharpening part but it gets the gunk off FAST!

  8. Cute card! Love your paper choices!!! Good thing ATG tape is relatively inexpensive, huh??? He sees mommy have so much fun with it that he had to give it a try!!! Hi to Karlee, too!!!

    Hugs!

  9. Love the card and thank you for showing the watercolor crayons. i think I need to get some of them. I know about leaving little ones with your stuff, when my daughter was little, I was knitting while she watched a movie, I got up to go to the bathroom and when I got back she thought she would try to help and pulled out the needles. I had to start all over again.

  14. What a great card. I really like the color combinations, in fact I just bought that color paper yesterday to make for Mothers Day card.

    I made a simple Birthday card for a sweet friend. I hope you like it.

  17. Robyn, it seems like you always stamp your cards at the end. What happens if you do all that work and then mess up the stamp, or do you ever mess up? (Probably not!)

    This is a cute card. I liked it.

  18. Aww...your son knew you had a lot of ATG tape! Cute - fun card!

  24. Great Video Robyn... I like your "Aqua Brush." Is it Stampin Up? The card colors are just as awesome as you thought they were and the finished card is fantabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love your ideas. You inspired me to make this baby shower card. I just LOVE this stamp! (I used the right link)

  27. Post #2- I loved this card! I think it is really cute.

    I have made my own quick card- I think I will give this one to my 8 year old Daughter as it is a bit juvenile. I still had fun making it.

  28. Really great card!! Cannot believe where you find your time to make cards (and all the rest ...) with 5 kids ... I have 2 and not managing to make a lot of cards, haha! Thanks for sharing, cute colors! Bye!

    ReplyDelete
  29. As my 2 year old daughter would say, "I love it the card!" It was already cute, but when you added the ribbon to the pink and green paper, it became gorgeous!

  32. Sorry to be off topic but where can I find best resource on car insjurry attorney?

  33. Robyn,
    Paper colors are beautiful together. Cute simple card.

  34. You are right it is great colors and a great card. You need to set aside a pair of scissors just for cutting ribbon. When you cut paper with scissors it dulls them quickly. Sewers always have scissors just for fabric because of this reason. You probably already know this, but incase someone doesn't. Thanks so much for all your sharing it is appreciated. ~Julie

  42. Hi Robyn. Super cute card. Rubbing alcohol will remove the gunk and not dull your scissors.

    ReplyDelete

    I love your color choices. Thanks for demoing the watercolor crayons. I've never seen then demoed with the aqua brush. I really like the effect. I'm not very artistic, but I'd like to try this.

  47. Love the video Robyn. I use my Cricut almost daily too, but I do find myself making a quick card sometimes w/o it. I feel like I'm cheting when I do though.
    Oh, and about the scissors - Tim Holtz's Scissors are AWESOME!!!! Custome Crops has them. Love them!!!!

  48. Very cute. I like how all your paper's cordinate. I need to work on that idea and have a lot of supplies to do my thing.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Wow Robyn I just love those colours together and they made with your help of course a beautiful card. Oh I'm sorry but I did laugh when I saw the remains of your ATG gun that is just what one of mine would of done when little but come to me afterwards saying 'all sticky'.

  51. Cute card! At least it was only the tape and not the whole atg he broke. The tape is cheap. Speaking of which....which kind of refill do you use? The acid free or regular refills?

    ReplyDelete
  52. I really like the colors on this one, and I love the simplicity of it!! Nice and quick for us moms with little time for ourselves! Thanks!

  57. Hi Robyn,
    Great video! I love the colors you choose. I'm wondering if you can add this link to your blog?

    It is a youtube video and hilarious (I play all the parts in the video). Check it out and see what you think. Thanks in advance. Jamie

  58. Beautiful card thanks for the color inspiration. I have had adhesives with the same problem and I couldn't fix them so I just cut off a piece, rubbed it on my paper, pulled off the backing and it worked. I was able to salvage quite a bit of adhesive this way.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Thank you for doing a card without the Cricut. I don't have one and it's kind of a drag to see such cute things and not be able to do them.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Love your card!! The colors are too cute!!

    PS If I don't have goo gone on hand I use alcohol :)
    Try cutting tin foil too to sharpen your scissors.

  61. I love your simple cards, and you didn't use the cricut, I will have to try this when I need a quick card.

  62. 2 year olds! My 2 1/2 year old niece snuck into my craft room too. I didn't realize it until I got back home after dropping her off. She painted a cute scribble with permanent ink marker on my table, my mouse, keyboard, and a note board that I keep with words of encouragement on it. I couldn't stop laughing, because she was smart enough to close the door after she was in there.

    Cute, easy card. Thanks for sharing.

  68. Such a cute card!! You are so creative! Cute stamps too! Hey - I thought Karlee got you a cute tape dispenser for Christmas -- why aren't you using it in your videos? :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. Robyn, this tree card is really nice. Great job. I must have missed the part of what you used on the inside, but when you have a dark card, do you put something bright inside to write on or do you use a light colored pen? Hope you can put some update or answer this question on your blog. Thanks. SKirkham@triad.rr.com
