Hi everyone!  So sorry to be late with the winner--I really did not remember that it was Thursday already :) picked

I love your blog and am too sad that Robin will no longer produce stamps. I hope I win this one since we are in the middle of high school football. Thanks

Congrats Nicole!!  Please send me your mailing address and I will get this out to you as soon as I can.

I really hope to post some things soon--still doing DT projects and some magazine submissions right now but there is a long weekend so hopefully, I can make some birthday cards that are needed.

Have a great day!

Small Card and A Giveaway!

Hi everyone!  It seems like forever since I've blogged.  Just too much going on right now.  But I've made a few things, but this is the only one I can show you right now.  I have some DT projects next week and I've been creating some things to submit for publishing.  So I can't show those right now.

Here's a quick 3x3 card I made last week using the new Close to My Heart Artiste Collection and some new Nautical Trendy Twine.  I used the cartridge for the top cut the sentiment is on and the chipboard for background.  The blue is a stamp--I just love how it looks :)  I really love this set!!  If you would like to order anything from Close to My Heart, I can help!  Just send me an email or visit my website by clicking the link on the right.  If you email me an order, I can give you a discount.
Now, I'm sure you heard that Robyn, My Pink Stamper is not going to be producing any more products.  While I am bit sad, I am very happy for her!   I do have one last stamp set of hers that I can give away.  It's the Sport-tastic set.  So, if you would like to win this, please leave one comment and a way for me to contact you.  I will leave this open until Wednesday night and announce the winner on Thursday.

Have a great week!!

August Trendy Twine--Friends Fur-ever

Hi everyone!  Today is my post day over at Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine.  We are featuring Krazy for Kraft twine, which is on sale this too :)

I made this adorable puppy card to show you today.

Here are the details:
  • Krazy for Kraft Trendy Twine
  • Create a Critter puppy cut at 3 1/2 inches
  • My Pink Stamper Punny-licious stamp
  • DCWV Safari Kids matstack
  • pop dots and 3D pop dots
My friend Kimi had this great idea for the dog toy with some leftover twine.  So it inspired me to make this card for my post today.  I just used a few strands and twisted them together with knots on the ends.  Then, the twine 'buttons' are so fun to do too.   You start in the middle of the 3D dot and swirl going out.

Don't forget to go over to the Trendy Twine blog and enter the challenge this month. The prize is some Krazy for Kraft and some of the brand new colors too!

A Great Year

Hi everyone!  Can you believe I posted everyday this week?  :)  I guess it helps that I had a few things I never posted, but I also am getting back to making things.

School starts for my kids on Monday--I can't believe how fast the summer went!  This card was a request from someone at work to send to her niece in another state.


I was getting worried about how Hello Kitty was going to look.  She always turns out cute, but until I glue it down, I think it looks terrible :)    

I do have a DT post on Tuesday, but have some more cards that I need to make so I hope to have some more posts for you!

Have a great day!!

Happy Moo-Day!

Hello!   Today is the last card I had made in July for the My Pink Stamper Moo-ey Doodles release.


This pattern paper is the other side of the paper I used on yesterday's card.  It's great to be able to use one piece of paper and make a few projects!  And the cows are so fun!!!  The pictures aren't the best and the cards have now gone on to Operation Write Home so I can't take any new ones.

The Krazy for Kraft Trendy Twine is on sale this month since it's the featured Twine.  And be sure to visit the Trendy blog and join in the fun challenge over there!

Christmas in August

Hi everyone!  I joined in a card challenge where they are making a Christmas card or two a week so that they are done in time.  I decided to make one this weekend, but I don't know if I will have time to do it every week.  Plus, I'm not very good at getting my Christmas cards done early :)

This was based off the Mojo Monday sketch last week, circle or square and is a 5 1/2 inch square card.


  • Poinsettia cut from Close to My Heart Artiste Cartridge at 3 1/2, 3 1/4 and 2 3/4 inches 
  • My Pink Stamper Biggie Christmas stamp
  • Coredinations Gemstones Cardstock
  • Victoria Cuttlebug Folder
  • EK Success Edge Punch
  • Queen and Co. Pearls
  • Green Organdy Ribbon
  • pop dots
  • green and brown ink 
Have you thought about Christmas cards yet?  I think I will continue to make some, but I usually make a lot of one kind. It would be great to get them done early this time!

Trendy Twine August Challenge

Hi everyone!  It's Just Another Day at the Beach--well, that is the Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine Challege this month :)  The design team made some great projects to show you and we are featuring Krazy for Kraft Twine this month too.

My project is a box to hold some the shells we collected on our beach vacation last year.


There wasn't a lot needed to put this together!  I knew the assignment and found this cute Trendy Washi Tape in Archiver's on one of my trips.  The box was super easy to assemble and then I thread the twine through the holes and tied a bow.  I also glued it down around the base of the box.  I think the box is supposed to be a flower box, but there are so many things you can use it for!

You really should participate in the challenge this month.  Here's what you need to do:
Make a beach themed project using Trendy Twine and Washi Tape.  You must only use Trendy Twine; if you do not have any, use hemp, jute, or embroidery thread only.   The project must be new for this challenge, no back linking.  Deadline is August 31st.  Projects not qualified will be unlinked.  The prize is 10 yds of Krazy for Kraft and 10 yds of the new colors of Trendy Twine!!!

Be sure to visit Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine to see all the fabulous projects and to enter your own!!

Hi everyone!!  I know I haven't been blogging lately--I just haven't been creating much.  But I had a crafty weekend with some fun ladies this weekend so I have a few things to show.  But 2 projects are for DT work for August.

Here's a card and another small project that I can show you :)

This is a birthday card that I made for a work friend.  I used the new Cricut Artiste Cartridge that you can order today.  The banner is chipboard from the kit you get with the cartridge and the happy birthday comes from one of the 3 stamp sets.  Paper is from the Green Tea Stack and the leaf is also cut out of leaf paper in the pack too.  I also used some Blue Berry Trendy Twine, pop dots and a Cricut cut for the flower.

Next I have a cut from the cartridge.  My friend Kimi from the group this weekend had this great idea when she saw this cut in my handbook.  It's a great twine holder!!  I cut them at 3 inches and they were perfect for some mini packs of Trendy Twine that I had getting all knotted up in a box.  I cut the slit in the top with some scissors to mirror those small floss holders.

If you would like to order this cartridge, I can help you!! I became a consultant just a few weeks ago because of this cart :)  You can click on my order link to the right or send me a message.  I can give you a 20% discount if you mention being a blog follower if you order through email.  Here's a picture of everything that you get for $99 (regular price without discount)--it's such a great deal!!

Have a great day everyone!!!
