A Way With Words – Happy Birthday 2

Perfect Winter Birthday

December 30, 2017


Hi there!  It’s Suzanne here today as 2017 comes to an end.  I hope it’s been a good year for you and you’re looking forward to an even better 2018!  I plan to get out my art supplies more in 2018.  I spend a lot of time at the computer and even if I’m being creative, it just isn’t the same as cutting and gluing and inking!  What about you?  Do you have plans to do more in 2018?  Perhaps learn something new?

I’m here today with a quick and easy card for someone with a winter birthday!  There are lots of winter babies out there who need cards!  It’s a great example of how you can mix and match dies from the A Way With Words collection and it’s super easy!

Here is how to make it:

Birthday Party Décor

July 29, 2017

by Judi Kauffman


Today’s project is a reusable sign to display on the table, mantel, or near the doorway at a birthday party! I picked bright, happy colors, but the color scheme is up to you. Go for school or team colors, a masculine or feminine palette, or something holiday-related. (If you pick shades of red, leave off the word ‘Birthday’ and use only ‘Party’ the sign is just right for Valentine’s Day and Christmas!) The optional easel folds flat for storage.

Happy Easter Penny Slider

March 13, 2017

Hi everyone,

It’s Frances here today with a tutorial for the Coloring Design Team. With Easter only a month away I thought it would be fun to create an Easter Card using the Krista Schneider Woodland Pals stamp set and coordinating dies. There is a cute little rabbit in this set, making it perfect for Easter.

As you can see, I decided to create a Penny Slider card using Joset Designs Sliders and Spinners die set. It is optional as to whether you use pennies or cardboard circles for the spinner mechanism, however the weight of the pennies does make the image spin and slide better. Instead of a coin, substitute a metal washer. (Cover the hole in the washer with cardstock.)

Happy Christmas Card by Suzanne Cannon

Hi there! It’s Suzanne here today, with a card that is a shout out to all the fine people in the U.K. who greet one another with the joyful “Happy Christmas”!  Although there is no Happy Christmas set in the A Way With Words line, you can easily mix and match dies to get many perfect combinations, so today I’ve added “happy” from the Happy Birthday 2 set to “Christmas” from Merry Christmas (#1235).

Here is how you can make this card: Continue Reading

Hi everyone,

It’s Frances here with today’s project. With Easter being only a week away, I decided to create an Easter card using Joset Designs Easter Eggs die set and the Els van de Burgt Studio Stitched Rectangles.
