Winter Wishes

I'm finally starting to think about gifts and cards for the up coming holiday.  My children and I put the tree up today and it really got me in the mood to create.  I wanted to start making some sort of ornament for my co-workers, but after a few frustrating tries I decided to make a card instead lol.

I used two challenges for this one.  Try Stampin' On Tuesday and Colour Me...! I'm loving the colors and the sketch with a side of snowflakes.

Here is my card.  I decided to keep it simple and not use a lot of embellishments.  I stamped the background with snowflakes and added just a touch of ribbon.

SS: winter forest, flurry of flakes (unity)
INK: coastal cabana, rose red, elegant eggplant
CS: coastal cabana, rose red, perfect plum, elegant eggplant
ACCESS: corner rounder punch, whisper white stitched ribbon

I Thank You

Over at Stampin' Royalty they are having a Being Thankful! challenge. Your to create a project for someone your thankful for.  I am thankful for a couple of people.  First of all my husband.  He's been a great inspiration to me.  No matter what's going on he is able to ground me and helps keep my head out of the clouds.

The second person I'm thankful is a friend I met threw work.  She has made everyday I work much better and is always willing to help me learn. She has been a great addition to my and my family's life.

Thanks to both of you for making me a better person!!

SS: your part, my journey
INK: lost lagoon
CS: sweet pea, lost lagoon, whisper white, chocolate chip, Chantilly b&t paper

Happy Bird-day! & a Thankful Heart

I can't believe that we are only a few weeks away from Thanksgiving! It seems to be going so fast this year.  I don't know about you but I haven't even started Christmas shopping yet.  I'm usually done by now (I don't have a lot of people to buy for) and this year I just can't get into it.

I thought making a few fall cards would help me get into the groove of the holidays.  Of course the Christmas music that's already playing at work it helping a bit to lol.  I'm loving it!!  The snow flakes falling outside my window is a bit help to.  Makes me want to put up my tree. 

Here is the first card I made.  Using a turkey stamp set and die from The Stamps Of Life.  I am so glad she came out with the matching die this year.  Makes it so much faster to make this cute turkey.

My second card is using an itty bitty stamp from Unity Stamps.  I love these stamps.  They usually have an image and a saying with them, making it so easy to get a card done and you don't have to search for stamps to go together.

Welcome, Little One! birth announcement

I am loving the color challenge over at Colour Me...! this week.  Such great choices.  I may have to do both of them.

I chose to do blushing bride, chocolate chip and blue lagoon for this card.  I've been wanting to use this baby set since I purchased it and I now have a girl friend who is having her first child, so this make using it even better.

I also decided to use a sketch from Try Stampin' On Tuesday.  I've never seen a sketch like this one before so it made it extra challenging this week..


And here is my card.

2 Cute 2 Scare

I found this great sketch challenge over at Stick it Down.  I missed the deadline for this sketch but I just had to use it.  I recently found this pictures of my older two dressing up for Halloween at my in-laws camp ground.  I didn't even think I had these.  Such a great find!!

I chose to use non Halloween paper and embellishments since it was in August and it was so warm and sunny out.  I really love the way it turned out.

I chose this sketch to create with
Here is my finished layout


Sweet Serena

I have held onto these pictures of my niece for 19 years! I've had such a hard time scrapping these since it was before I had my own kids and I didn't keep any record of the date or what happened.  I have over 100 photos of her to scrap.

I saw this two page layout over at Stick it Down and thought, now's the time.  So I pulled out these photos and got scrapping.  It took me a full day to decide what to use but I'm just happy to have a layout done!!  The hardest part was what embellishments to used.

I used the stamp set strawberries2stamp and strawberry framelit dies from The Stamps of Life.

Here is the sketch I used

And here is my layout

BOO! and a challenge

I have a little time to play today and just had to do another Halloween card.  I can't believe that it's one week away already!  I'm not ready for it to be over.  So many projects and decorations to enjoy and so little time to get them done.  The funny thing is... I've bought so much Halloween paper, embellishments and stamp sets but haven't even begun to use them all.

I haven't played with this set yet (and I just HAD to have it lol).  So when I saw this sketch over at
CAS(E) this Sketch! I instantly saw the pumpkins on it.  I did turn mine sideways, just seemed to fit better that way for me.

I can really see using this set on a Halloween layout for a baby book I'm going to be creating for a friend.  
SS: fall fest, paper pumpkin September set
INK: crushed curry, tuxedo black, tangerine tango
