Girly, you rock!

Running off to dinner to celebrate a lovely friend's birthday. I CASE'd this card from the talented Kristina Werner. It uses the little heart punch from Stampin' Up! and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. I have forgotten how much I love Papertrey products. I'm making a trip down to the states a couple times this year. Perhaps I need to make another order... Have a great weekend everyone!

Framelit Card

Ok I'm officially in LOVE. I've been aching and hoping and wishing for Stampin' Up to bring out their version of Nestabilities and they finally have! They are called framelits dies for the Big Shot. As soon as I saw the Labels Collection with the coordinating Apothecary Art stamp set, I knew I had to have it. The ribbon, stamp set, paper and brad can all be free items earned during Stampin' Up's annual Sale-A-Bration. It's the most wonderful time of the year in stamping world. If you had any inclination to venture into the paper crafting world, now is the time my friends! Hope everyone had a happy Valentine's day!

Whole Face Smile!

Good evening everyone! Just wanted to do a quick share of another card we made at our meeting last month. It uses a ton of Sale-A-Bration items which is nice because all of the items can be earned for free! My favorite is still the paper by far. Off to bed!

Happy Birthday

Yeech, iPhone photos sometimes aren't that great in low light situations are they? I figured it's either mediocre pictures with my iPhone that actually get posted or the non-existent photos that I don't get around to taking with my normal camera. As you can tell, I decided on option A. Sorry about the weird angle too. I guess I should have gotten down to eye level instead of sitting in my chair and guestimating. A few weekends ago, I attended a stamping meeting and it reminded me of the love I have for paper crafting. These meetings are always fun because we often will make 4 projects and this meeting was no different! We focused on using Sale-A-Bration and new catalogue items and the cards turned out great! I'll post all our projects over the next few days. Here's card uno! I'm actually really enjoying that stamp set and even the fun new ribbon! And if you know me at all, you can never go wrong with Crumb Cake (aka Kraft) card stock!

Baby Card

What can I say other than my life has been super hectic? One would think that with the wedding behind me now, I'd have loads of time to craft... The problem is I've picked up several other hobbies along the way. I've discovered that I love fabric just as much as I love paper. I've also discovered that I'm really enjoying photography. Those two things have been eating up my time along with the lingering wedding bits like thank you cards and the big honeymoon! There have been a lot of babies happening at work lately. A lot. We had a little play date today and I whipped up a card quickly. I went to a stamping meeting last weekend and it was great fun! It reminded me of how much I missed stamping so hopefully I'll get back into the paper and ink soon.
