Hi I’m Jeanne!  Back again this week to share some more cards with you, this time with the Domestic Bliss collection. I love to send cards to family and friends to let them know I’m thinking of them.  It never has to be for an occasion – just a note to say hi is always welcome! 

My kiddos are growing up fast.. off to college and finding their own places.  Lately my daughter has become a domestic diva!  Going to work, cooking dinner, and keeping the house tidy are part of the daily grind.  I have to smile to myself and think “Welcome to my world!”  LOL!! 

Today I’m playing with the Domestic Bliss Collection!   I started with a background of pretty papers from the 6x8 paper pad.   I topped the background paper with a 3x4 Journaling card from the SN@P! Packet!  The pack has 118 pieces to choose from.  The “messy hair…”   2 x 2” card is from the same pack.

I love how all the elements are coordinated to work together so all you have to do is mix and match to your hearts content!  I added Chipboard sticker flowers to frame the sentiment.  

I love piling on the embellishments like color coordinated enamel dots, Bless This Mess Washi Tape, and stickers!!

The hello life yellow tab is a sticker that you’ll find on the Combo Sticker that’s included in the 12” paper pack or sold separately.  


My second card features lots of Bits and Pieces.  If you haven’t seen these before you need to check them out!  The pack includes 53 printed die cut pieces like the washing machine, cute pooch, laundry basket and more! 

If you look close under the word sticker sentiments you’ll see some pretty floral washi “Home Sweet Home” tape.  I love the fun sentiments in this collection!   Sometimes you just have to laugh at a situation.  Laundry happens.

I think this would be a fun card to send to a friend who might have her hands full with life.  Maybe include a gift card for a night out, or volunteer to watch the kids.

I mixed some Chipboard stickers in with the Bits and pieces like the detergent bottle and the smaller laundry basket.

Yep.. life is going to bring you housework.. but in the end there’s still no place like home.   And for me there’s no better place to be! 

Wishing you a great day with some time to do all the things you love best.. dinner with dh, hug your fur baby, spend some time with the kiddos, and maybe find a little crafty time to play!


Jeanne here today with some colorful cards for the emoji lover in your life!  Let’s face it.. who doesn’t love emoji’s?  I don’t care if you're 15 or 50 they’re a fun way to spice up your text messages and social media!  The Emoji Love collection from Simple Stories is total eye candy.. bright colors, net lingo, and super fun emoji icons will have you smiling from ear to ear.

Need a special card for a tween or teen in your life?  You can’t go wrong with the unicorn emoji.  This one says “Be a Unicorn”!  Unicorns are unique and rare.. this sends a positive message that you don’t have to be the same as everyone else.  Be different.  Just be you! 

I started out with a background of papers from the Emoji Love 6x8” pad.  Rainbow stripes on one side, and stars on the other.

For my focal point I selected two 3x4 cards from the Emoji Love SN@P! Pack.    The pack contains 112 double sided cards to choose from.  I cut the a rainbow stripe card with a circle die (you can also use a punch) to create a semi circle, and layered it over another card with a star print on black. 

I topped that with a unicorn and “be a unicorn speech bubble” sticker from the Combo Sticker.  This sticker sheet can be purchased individually and is also included in the 12” paper pack.   The sparkle heart is a die cut from the Bits and Pieces pack.  I added a word sticker over the heart that says u rock, and another sticker from the Combo Sheet along the bottom.  The finishing touches for me are always a bit of bling.. a decorative brad bow and some shiny color matched enamel dots.


One of the girls in a mood over a guy?  Maybe a bad break up?  I’ve seen them come and go.. and the one thing that sets things right is a girls night out!  This would be a great card for my teenager.  I’d tuck in some movie tickets and a little extra cash for some junk food.   How about a birthday card for a best friend? 

I mixed more Emoji Love papers for the background before adding a 3x4 SN@P! card.  I added a bit of Expressions Washi Tape along the edge to look like it’s holding the card in place.

All the cool food shapes are from the Bits and Pieces pack.  There are 47 die cut ready to work with pieces you have lots to choose from. 

Even the “Yes! word bubble and heart eyed emoji are from the Bits and Pieces!  

I love the round tab stickers in the 4x6 sticker pack.  They make great accents.  Can you spy the little “OMG” one on my card?
