As you may have noticed, I haven’t posted for a couple days. My sister-in-law is expecting and we gave her a shower today. I’ve been pretty busy with decorations and food. Here’s a few pics of the fun.

I used the Art Philosophy cart for the banner pieces, Create a Critter for the animals, and cupcake for the letters! The shower was a jungle theme!

Cupcake toppers also with the Create a Critter cartridge…

Just Because H2H

I’m on a roll ever since I went through all my supplies! I know where everything is now. Makes it so much easier to finish a project. (And, I’m trying to make good use of my insomnia.)
     This week at Heart 2 Heart is a sketch     challenge. I like sketch challenges because it gives me a jumping off point. For me, the hardest part of my creative process is where/what to start.

As I was flipping through my B&T samples, I instantly knew exactly what I wanted to do.  I used the new Pemberly paper pack, and the oh so versatile ‘Card Word Puzzle’ stamp set.

I also know exactly who will be getting this card in the mail!

You’re a Star!

I LOVE the sketch at Mojo Monday this week, and was kicking around some ideas. Today I really am in need of a beach day, since it is blustery, wet, and rainy. I used the new Footloose paper pack, and the new ’Under the Sea’ stamp set. It brought me a little sunshine…if only in my mood. Winking smile

My 4 year old also wanted to craft with me today and this is her creation…

She apparently misses beach days as much as I do!

You’re Invited

I have a LOT of invitations to make for an upcoming church activity. I thought this would be the perfect way to use some of my stash that I don’t readily use. A long, long time ago I picked up a 300ct package of pre-scored A2 card bases. I thought, hey, I make a lot of cards this will be handy. Well, 4-5 years later I am left with an assortment of colors that I haven’t had a use for…until today!

I cut each A2 card base in half to reduce bulk, and get more invites out of the paper. I just have a quick print-out to glue to the other side and they’ll be ready to hand out on Sunday…that is if I can get all 60 of them done by then. Wish me luck!

Here is a close up of my favorite color combo. The patterned cardstock is from the Sonoma paper pack. So, pretty!

My First Giveaway!!!

I’ve come to the realization that I am a scrapbook supply hoarder! My hubby finished up some shelving for me last night, so I could have a place for it all. Well, a few months ago when we re-arranged furniture and stuff, a couple of storage crates ended up in the garage. It was scrapbook supplies. I found a LOT of duplicates…you know, out of sight, out of mind.
My first giveaway stems from the harsh realization that I have too much…
Lucky Me!
This week I am giving away a collection kit from Abbey Road called “Lucky Me”

With Love

Sorry I’ve been a bit lacking in the blogging…I’ve had family visiting and quite frankly it’s a bit chaotic around here. But, today I was able to get crafty with my lil’ sis. It’s so great that our girls play so nicely together, and that my little guy took a nice long nap.

This cute little card was inspired by Clean & Simple’s sketch FTL176, and this weeks Heart 2 Heart Challenge.

New Idea Book!

Today is the BIG day! You can order from the new Spring/Summer ‘12 Idea Book today!

This card and treat box feature two of the new paper packs in the IB, Stella and Pemberly. I am in LOVE with these paper packs, but there are lots of other great ones in there too.

Also featured, the new February Stamp of the month, Thoughtful Tidings. I think I may do up a bunch of the pillow boxes in red and pink colors for my daughter to take to her preschool class as Valentines. I’ll just need to fill them with chocolate Hugs!

Here’s a closer look at this fun stamp set:


With a $50 purchase you can get this stamp set for only $5! And trust me, that could be really easy with the new IB. Winking smile 

Stay tuned later this week about my projects I’m working on to sell to raise money for the March of Dimes organization.

Happy Crafting Everyone!
