Love Is The Bridge | Creating A Scene

Hello! It's a new week with new projects to share!

I spent a lot of my weekend doing some cleaning and organizing in my craft/work space. I find that it's a never ending process, but one that I really enjoy! Who knew organzing could be so fun lol!! ;)

I ordered some new storage pieces to better utilize my space (a few more Studio 3 Solutions Color Cubbies and an ink pad storage system from Organize More) and moved some things around. I also purged a bunch of stuff, which I love to do every few months to get rid of the things that I'm just not using. So I'm starting off the week feeling refreshed and inspired in a cleaned up space! ;)

I did find time to make a card in the midst of all my organizing - I pulled a bunch of products from some different companies that I thought would work together and played around with them until I came up with something I liked. ;)

I combined the Simon Says Stamp On The Road die with the Paper Smooches Backdrop Builders dies to create a city scene. To complete the look, I added a Mama Elephant sentiment and bridge image (stamped on vellum and cut out) to the card.

I love combining different things to come up with scenes like this. Sometimes they come together really quickly and sometimes it takes a little longer to get the look I'm going for. When that happens, I usually just leave it on my desk and move the elements around until I like it. ;)


I also have to announce a couple of winners:
The August Simon Says Stamp card kit is Eileen D (please email me you mailing info!)
The cardstock and ink prize pack from the SSS This Is The Life release blog hop is Chris Weber (you've been emailed!)




  1. I saw this on the small screen of my phone earlier today and had to come by to get a bigger, better look on my computer - I adore this card, Steph! Your vellum bridge looks amazing - such a brilliant addition to your scene! Beautifully done!

  2. Wow this scene is awesome and the sentiment is lovely. Love all that you did for this card.
