Three Easy Pieces

I found a three-panel layout somewhere, I think it was Ali Miles at Gingersnap Creations, but I could not find it on her blog, but I am giving her credit for it anyway!  This is a wonderful easy sketch and I broke into some paper I had been hoarding to make some generic birthday cards:



and then a Christmas one for an upcoming hostess:


You can't get much simpler than these!  If you have any questions, shoot me an email!

On a different note, here is a little Faux Alligator Top Note purse I made as a raffle prize for the recent upline meeting I attended:


This was made from Melon Mambo cardstock, using directions from Donna at Butternut Sage.  I also have a written tutorial--it you'd like it, just shoot me an email as well.  It is fun and easy!!!


  1. Totally amazing - as always! I just love the simple elegance of these cards. That purse is mighty cute too, might just have to give that a try. ~chris

  2. I wish you could hear me GASPING right now! These are FANTASTIC and that purse is making me twitch! HOW flippin' cool are YOU! My she-ro! Great inspiration, LeAnne, you crafty goddess! I *heart* you!

  3. that first card is just beautiful - simple yet oh so elegant. Did you stamp that image on the first card or was it already there on the paper?

    You really don't get much simpler than that really - I love them - can I CASE them!?

  4. LeAnne......fabulous, fabulous, usual!! Can I case that last one for my next SAS? I always make things so difficult ...this is classic, simple, stunning!! You truly are a "crafty goddess" Elise mentioned above!! xoxo
