Top 13 Projects in 2013

As a tribute to 2013, I'm taking a look back at my past projects and cards and sharing my top 13 with you!

It's all a part of the Top 13 in 2013 Blog Hop through Operation Write Home.

Project 1:
This was a hugely popular project in 2013!  At first it was an exclusive video tutorial for my newsletter subscribers but I thought since the year is over, it's now my gift to all my viewers!  Thank you for making 2013 a huge success!  You'll want to be sure to be a subscriber in 2014 as more exclusive videos will be heading your way!

They're quick and fun to create using the Dress Up Framelit Dies.

Project 2:
A fun Father's Day card!  (I miss that watch stamp set!)

Project 3:
Love the bright colors in this Happy Birthday card!

Project 4:
Does this look like summer or what?  Want to know how to create this card and watermelon?  Watch the video tutorial.

 Project 5:
Simple and elegant card with the new Hexagon Punch and the Elegant Butterfly punch.

Project 6:
The Oh Hello stamp set is so versatile as well as the Honeycomb Embossing Folder.

Project 7:
The Hershey Kisses on this card can be easily created using the Blossom Petals punch.  This punch is retired but guess what??  It's on the Clearance Rack for $10.19 (regular price was $16.95).

Project 8:
Another quick and adorable project!  Love these little mugs.  Watch the video tutorial here.

Project 9:
Love the water colored flowers in this card!  See how to recreate this look on the video tutorial here.

Project 10:
Using white embossing powder really makes a stamped image pop!

Project 11:
I included this card in my Top 13 because the design on this Happy Thanksgiving card is so quick and versatile.  Simply change out the paper and sentiment and you have a totally different look to this card!  One thing I would change is to emboss the Very Vanilla card stock base.  It needs just a little something.

Project 12:
This Trick-or-Treat card features the Illuminate ink pad!  Have you seen this ink?  It's so sparkly and adds pizazz to any project!  Watch the video tutorial for this card.

Project 13:
I really enjoy making these cute Open Top Treat Holders.  My friend, Jaimie, shared this project with me and I just had to share it with you!  Watch the video tutorial here.

I hope you have been inspired by these Top 13 projects from 2013!  I wish you and your family a very happy and blessed 2014!!
