Mini Cards

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday!  I’ve missed a few days here– I took a little girls trip to Vegas & then we have been battling a yucky cold around here.  I am still a little hoarse, but on the mend! It seems like everyone is getting a cold right about now, so something must be going around for sure! We had a lot of fun in Vegas, but I was glad to get home!   Here is a picture of my friend, Sarah and I before going to see Jersey Boys. (Remember me talking about Sarah–she had a baby the same week I did and we crafted this pretty mobile for her little girl) Anyway, Jersey Boys was amazing!  Definitely see it if you have the opportunity.  We had dinner at Mon Ami Gabi which was so delicious, a...

Neon Stamped Card

Hi everyone and Happy Monday! Today is my little girl’s first day of 4th grade.  Jaxen won’t start school until Thursday, so I have a few more days home with him….and Grayson, well he won’t start school for a long while.  He says, he just wants to stay home and snuggle me forever and I am okay with that! Anyway, like every year- I make my kids a card for their first day of school, and here is the one for Alexis. Whether she saves these cards or not, is hard to know.  But, I know this blog will still be floating around in cyberspace.  So…. Alexis, I am so proud of the young lady you are becoming.  You are beautiful on the inside and out.  Your kindness and willingness to help others would make any mother proud.  I...

Hi everyone and Happy Friday!! Another day, another post! I told you I’m back 😉 Sooo… today I thought I’d do a set of mini cards, because they are one of my favorites!  I also love this little paper airplane stamp, and wanted to use it on something!

Inked Embossing

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday!!  Wow, Wednesday–this week is flying by! Next week my 2 older kiddos will be in school!! I can’t believe the summer has gotten away from us!  I guess that’s what happens when you have a new baby in the house. Yesterday evening after the baby went to bed, I should have spent some time cleaning my craft space…because it desperately needs it…but, instead I made a video on a card!  Maybe I will get to the tidying up part today…or maybe not.  We will see! Might as well wait til the kids are in school, right?? Okay…how about the video: I really love the way that cream and kraft card stock look together. And, the soft blue gives it just enough color. I wanted to try to capture how pretty the inked embossing was…but,...

Happy Fright Night

Hi everyone and Happy Monday!  Hope you all had a great weekend!  We took the kids to the State Fair–which they loved.  We only stayed for a few hours, since we had the baby with us–but, it was long enough to ride a few rides, eat some greasy fair food and see lots of fun stuff! One more week til school for our 2 older kids- and though I went down to make a teacher gift or two…I switched gears and went with Halloween instead.  I know I am a little crazy. Really, I just wanted to cut out this cute haunted house from the new CTMH Artbooking cartridge on page 71.  This cartridge has everything on it! If you haven’t swiped one up yet–you should! To keep the image at a size I knew would fit my tag,...
