Hi there and happy Saturday! It's time again for the Papertrey Ink Customer Blog Hop! For October, there were several color recipes to choose from - with pretty inspiration images. I had a really hard time choosing which one to use! I decided upon the one that had a pretty, glittery bowl of sparkly ornaments in pastel shades.... Then I scurried off to the PTI corner of my craft room and just kept picking things out! I am sure I used about 10 products for this card. Really - too much fun! Here is my sparkly Christmas village card: Instead... Continue reading

Hi friends! Hope your week is going great! I'm popping in today to share a fun snowman card I made using gorgeous products from Simon Says Stamp! Ever since the "Cold Hands, Warm Heart" release, I have been dying to get my hands on these adorable snowman stamps and dies! (Full supply links at the bottom of my post) Who doesn't love a snowman on a Christmas card?? Um, no one! LOL. The main reason I love this Build a Snowman stamp set so much is that all the elements are each a separate stamp - so you can customize... Continue reading

Hellllooooooo! It's been a long week and I have missed crafting and blogging! I got up early this morning and headed into the craft room and made this card before we started out for a long, fun day! Just now home and posting this! The hubs and I went on a movie-lunch-mall date today! Just what I needed! And, I got a massage (really what I needed)...and I spent a whole wad of cash at Sephora! What's better than that?? Nothing! We went to see "Gone Girl" and it was REALLY good!! it doesn't hurt much to look at Ben... Continue reading

Hey friends! I'm back from Iowa! (see bottom of my post for more deets) and spending some time in the craft room again! So I took yesterday off work to regroup from my trip, and I needed to get crafty! I have lots and lots of Halloween ideas in my head and I have to make some stuff! LOL. For today's project I used the uber cute Simon Says Stamp dies and stamp sets to make a pair of cute Halloween cats! I stamped and colored my spooky kitties with my Copic Markers. At the end I added some pretty... Continue reading

Helloooooo there! How are you? How is your weekend going so far? Mine has been pretty busy and fun actually! I cannot believe it's almost five o'clock Sunday night and another weekend is almost over. Dang. How does time go so fast? And I have to go make dinner after this. Anyhooo... Yesterday among other errands I picked out new eyeglasses. That is so hard, isn't it? Such a big decision. I had about 20 pairs all laid out in front of me...and finally myself, hubs and the sweet lady at the optician's chose these frames. They look like lace!... Continue reading

Howdy! It's time for one of my favorite things! The Papertrey Ink Customer Blog Hop! Yeah! I missed last month's hop because I was so busy and never got the time to make a project. So, this month I am all over it! I instantly loved the inspiration image and the pretty colors (see photo below). And, this truly was a color 'challenge' for me - combining lots of colors that I don't normally put together. This hop gave me the perfect chance to use the gorgeous Make It Market Kit with the watercolor roses stamps. OOH LA LA. I... Continue reading

Happy Saturday! WOOOO HOOOOOOOO! Yes! I'm all about sleeping in, crafting, and college football today! OMG I needed a weekend. How about you? Hope you had a good week and that your weekend is off to a smashing start. You know I have been in the Fall mode lately - lots of leaves and seasonal themes. Today when I sat down to make something I thought 'how can I maybe make something a little bit different for Fall?' So it came to me! A Fall bouquet of flowers! I love it when people make those pretty arrangements with flowers and... Continue reading

Where do I begin today.... I'm tired? No, that's no good. But it's true. I'm a little worn down around the edges lately and trying to get my groove back. It's just a phase I guess, and we all have 'em. I am a really happy-go-lucky sort of gal who always likes to keep it positive and optimistic. This past week has tested me, though. I'm walking on through it, with the help of God. He is forging me into something stronger and I feel it as sure as anything I've ever felt. So, today I'm keeping it low key...stayed...

Hi peeps! We interrupt this regularly scheduled Fall programming to bring you some more watercolor butterflies! LOL. I know it's not really an Autumn thing, but I really wanted to share this card with you! I made it a while ago, but I had to wait to post it until the person got it in the mail! Hee hee. Super stealth right? You know that I'm seriously crazy for WPlus9 stamps. Well, these new butterflies are a MUST HAVE! I had a great time coloring these pretties.... Remember to go check out the WPlus9 channel on YouTube to see how... Continue reading

Hello! I'm back today with more Fall crafting craziness! I stayed up late last night stamping and relaxing. Really what I needed. I worked so many hours this past week and I was brain dead Friday night when I came home from work. The one sure fire way to get me back in my groove is to spend the day (and night) crafting. (And watching college football) I have some cool things in the works to share later. I started Bible Journaling and did my first page yesterday. (You can see a sneak peek on Instagram) I will probably write... Continue reading

Hey friends! What's shakin'? Hope you're having a great week. It's flying by, isn't it, with the holiday this week and all. I'm ready for another weekend - how about you? One of my favorite things to look forward to at the beginning of each month is the new Tim Holtz Tag! I love the 12 Tags of 2014 so far, don't you! I couldn't wait to see the one for September, and Mr. Holtz did not disappoint! I made my tag right away this month, because last month I ran out of time and never got it done.... I...

Howdy friends! Hope you're having an awesome Labor Day weekend! It's September 1st, so I'm gonna go ahead and call it Autumn! YEAH! Happy Fall everyone!! If you've followed me for a while then you KNOW that Fall is my very favorite time of year. I love the cooler weather, cozy sweaters, apples, leaves, hot coffee drinks, football, my birthday, my wedding anniversary, pumpkin flavored get my drift! So, as soon as the calendar turns over from August to September I say it's time to start Fall crafting!! If it wasn't 98 degrees here yesterday, I might just bust... Continue reading

Hi friends! I am SO super excited to finally share this set of projects today. I've been working on this post for a couple of weeks because I was having so much fun and just kept adding things! Fall is just around the corner (yay!), so this will be my last official post of Summer. I thought it was fitting to end the season with sweet summer strawberries in a basket! Don't strawberries just scream "Summer" to you!? Where I live there are little strawberry stands on the corners and you can eat so many you could burst. We've been... Continue reading

Happy Weekend! How's it going? We just got home after watching our nephew play football this afternoon. It was a wonderful day out at the park and he played really well. He has worked so hard all Summer and we are so proud of him in his starting position this year. He is twelve and already has a good head for the game. Can't wait to watch him grow into his own... We came home and made dinner, and now I'm finally getting around to posting the card I made this morning! I made this card for the Mama Elephant... Continue reading

Hello my friends! What a nice weekend I'm having! Whew - too much fun for one girl. Friday I left work early and the DH picked me up from the office to go to a concert! We went to see Counting Crows at the Greek Theater in Berkeley. What an amaaaaaazing show! Wow. They have been on my concert list for quite some time and I was so happy to see them here at (their/our) home. (Fun fact - I actually went to college with the lead singer of Counting Crows!) The weather was gorgeous, the beer was cold, the... Continue reading

Hi everyone! Okay, here's what.... I'm STILL addicted to watercoloring everything! ACK! I can't stop myself. That's okay, though, right? And, I'm also currently (re)addicted to my woodgrain paper! LOL. Do you go in phases with your supplies like that? What are you obsessed with right now? Today I'm sharing a clean and simple butterfly thank you card that I watercolored. I need to give a shout out to the super talented and sweet Dawn from WPlus9. She is so generous with her knowledge and her amazing videos. Seriously...whew. CLICK HERE to see her video page. I sat in my... Continue reading
