World Card Making Day | Part 2

I was feeling a little overwhelmed this week.  And then I realized it was only Tuesday and I was able to calm down.  Life is just going and crazy right now. 

I wanted to get on here and share the rest of the cards I made for WCMD on Saturday.  It wasn’t much, as we got to go see my niece and her lil boy (and the rest of the family.)  Babies over-ride anything, even WCMD!  HA!!



This challenge is the 3x3 card challenge. I LOVE to make 3x3 cards.  And I love that the main goal with WCMD was to create cards for the upcoming holidays.  So I pulled out the October Stamp of the Month and used the sentiment with some older Stampin’ Up! papers. 

I thought these would be fun to tuck in with a small gift to give. 


Finally, this one was a sketch challenge.  I always love a good sketch challenge.  I paired some fun older papers with my all time favorite sentiment stamps from Papertrey Ink. 



I had a lot of fun just crafting for the heck of it.   I got a few other things done Sunday that I will share later in the week. 

Thanks for the visit today!!

World CardMaking Day | Part 1

Hi there friends!!


Saturday was World Cardmaking Day.  Did you play along with any challenges?  My friends over at Clique Kits held a facebook party with hourly challenges.  How fun!!

I thought I would share with you some of the cards I created while I played along.



This challenge was the use more than 4 patterned papers.  I had this die cut from the Cricut Artistry Cart, and thought it would be fun to pair with some red and navy colors.  The stamp set is from Paper Smooches Circle of Honor set. 


This challenge was to use a different medium for mixed media.  I used my embossing paste and some inks to make the background.  I had fun digging through my embellishment drawer and not stamping on this one.  The tag came printed that way. 



This challenge was to create a shaker card.  After one other failed attempt, I kept this one even though the sentiment is totally crooked. 



And finally for today, this challenge was to use a Die as your main image.  I love this rainbow die from MFT, and matching clouds.  I paired it with a Reverse Confetti stamp set. 


Thanks for stopping in today!

Silver & Sequins

Hello there Friends!

I’m just rambling here a bit.  As mentioned on Saturday, I was home all of last week.  Thankfully, I was able to be here for Greg while he recovered and I was able to tackle some things that I was feeling were never going to get caught up on.  Plus I had all day Friday in the craft room to work on projects and get caught up for you all here on the blog!


I am going back to work today.  And for all week.  HA!  So, I will be back to working mom and busy.  However, I have fun stuff to share with you. 


I pulled out my patterned paper stash, some sketches, and a bunch of fun supplies.  I was able to get quite a few cards done, but I wanted to share these three today.  I used some fun papers from Stampin Up!, their Thank You set, and some silver embossing powder and sequins. 


I also added some of Stampin’ Up!’s vellum behind this card just to add a little visual effect. 




This one was so super easy.  Just stamped and embossed on the patterned paper!  LOVE. 


And for this one, I added some sparkly silver cardstock to really make it pop. 

Thanks for stopping by today!  Enjoy your week!

Family Update

Hi guys!!  Happy Saturday!

I am home today and bumming around.  No football today, but I’m prepping for my first class tomorrow!  YAY!  So excited.

So I’m trying to get caught up on life around the house and things I need to do.  I’ve made a list, so let’s cross it off!! 

I thought I would just pop on and share some family life photos with you from the start of school. 

After my class tomorrow, Greg and I are heading out of town for the night. He has a early surgery Monday morning (nothing serious) and then we will be home that night.  Both boys play football out of town, but fortunatly, both our on our route home, so we might make it to one of them!

I’ll be back next week with some more card making fun stuff. 


Homecoming was a short week, but David still dressed up. 

PicMonkey Collage



This will be a keeper, amIright?



McKinley won the Summer Challenge over at Simon Says Stamp for her cute card and video!  Look at all these goodies!!  OH MY!!  I was jealous!! 


I am finishing up this book, and taking in Jen’s Book Club each week now too.  If you haven’t read this, you should.  It’s awesome and just what I needed to hear!!


Greg has been making these super cool roses, from beer bottle lids.  They are pretty cool.  He’s selling them locally, but I will ship one if anyone wants one. 



Thanks for popping in.  I better get back to class prep.  Have a great Saturday!!

Picture My Life Pages | National Stamping Month

Hi again!!

I recently caught myself up on my pocket scrapbooking pages.  I wanted to say, I have always used and will probably still use the terms Project Life.  CTMH uses pocket scrapbooking and their line is called Picture My Life.  You can find all of their lines by clicking the link HERE.


When it comes to my albums, I just document as I go.  I do not do weekly or daily, I just do what we did as we go.  Some days, I have tons of photos and I want them all in.  Some weeks I do not take many photos at all.  So I just document what I thought was important in our life at the time. 


I used all three of the sets from the National Stamping Month Hello Life sets. 

PML M's Birthday

I choose to work with Glacier as my color as it matched McKinley’s shirt she wore that day.  It made me smile that the star, heart and the banner image also had chevron to match her shirt. 

PML Ms Birthday details

Make sure you click on each image to see it larger and more details. 


Make sure you pick up these fun sets before they are gone!! 



Thanks for stopping in. 

Happy Hello!

Hi friends!! 

Did you enjoy your weekend?  It was way too short for me!!  Friday night was Homecoming, and early Saturday was a football jamboree.  And typical of MT weather, we were freezing and then I got sunburnt!  The heat was nice, but it zapped me and my weekend time was wasted on the couch.  Although, it was nice to just relax a little!


Anyway, I do have  a couple cards for you today, using our National Stamping Month sets, Hello Life. 


My photography got a wee bit tilted there didn’t it.  HA! 

I love this font that Happy is written in, like a marker or paint brush!  So pretty.  I paired the sentiment from the Hello Life sets, Cardmaking and Scrapbooking, together to make the sentiment.  The flower images are from the Stamp of the Month for September.  I masked it on the front panels.  The B & T paper is from the new Sangria pack. 


This card has a lot of my favorite things on it!  Again, the font, these sentiments from the Pcoket Scrapbooking and Cardmaking sets.  I stamped the fun brushstokes in colors of the rainbow.  Favorites!!  ♥  And the chevron on the star!! 

This card is super simple.  I love the white on white making the other colors pop off the card. 


Don’t forget the National Stamping Month specials for this month only.  September is flying by!!


And while you are at it, pick up the Stamp of the Month too!


Here’s to a great week everyone!!  Have a fun day!
