Gratitude Journal


Nikki Sivils has teamed up today and tomorrow with Basically Bare so be sure to check out the Nikki Sivils blog to see what everyone has created!




I am so excited to bring you my Basically Bare project today.  I loved this mixed album as soon as I saw it in my package and couldn't wait to use it.  I decided to make a Gratitude Journal with the Messages Collection and have left lots of space for adding photos I take, lots of journaling and I love the few envelopes for holding memorabilia or more photos.  I had a lot of fun creating this, I used lots of Unity stamps and Cricut cuts and for adhering the items to the pages I have used the Beacon 3 in 1 Glue.  I love that this glue adheres so quickly, does not wrinkle the paper and works on fabric too so it was perfect for the canvas page.  This is for the Die Cuttin Divas challenge - anything goes.






















Now be sure to hop on over to the Nikki Sivils blog to see what else is being showcased today and tomorrow!

Farmer's Wife Apron

You have one more day to link up to my Inspired By Challenge.  Here is the project I did for it.

  I have used the Kitchen Gadgets and Kitchen Gadgets 2 for this sweet little apron card.  I knew I had to make one when I saw this one on Pinterest.  As soon as I saw it I knew I was going to use some of the Jenni Bowlin Farmer's Wife collection, which is available at Jessica Sprague.  Isn't this paper perfect for this?!  I also tucked in a couple of the journal cards that I have printed up very small, the benefit of digi!  I also thought that a gift card to a favorite kitchen store would be a perfect addition tucked into the pocket.  



One more thing, Jessica is offering another class that you don't want to miss.  You can register here



Just a Note





Hello and welcome to this week's Ribbon Carousel Crew's challenge for you.  
This week our favorite Aussie Danielle Daws is challenging us to be inspired by a photo she pinned on Pinterest.




For my card I have used the My Mind's Eye Bright Side papers, my Cricut, some Unity stamps a SRM Sticker  and some Twinery Twine for my quick and easy card (I whipped it up in the morning before work!).  



This is also for the Young Crafter's Unite Challenge: flowers.



Get Butter Soon


I have another post for The Alley Way Stamps today.


 I have created a little Get Well packet using the new Reel Time stamp set.  Packaged up is some microwave popcorn and peanut M&Ms (have you ever put these in your popcorn? yummy!)  A nice little thinking of you when someone is not feeling well and if they are really sick, you could include a movie and some slippers.  Don't you love the sentiment "Get Butter Soon"  that I have used on the tag?   Also Echo Park Note To Self papers along with some May Arts V Striped Twill and some Twine.




Now be sure to pop (hehehe) on over to the TAWS blog to see what the other designers have for you.

Some Jillibean Soup cards

So I played around the other night with my Neopolitan Bean Bisque Soup by Jillibean Soup the other night and made a few quick and easy cards.  I was pooped but 'needed' to craft so quick and easy was on the agenda.

New Car


I was up on the Nikki Sivils blog the other day but I thought I would show this layout here.  I am very proud of Jaimee who worked hard since getting her first job and in a year she saved enough for her own car... now I am eagerly awaiting her getting her 'N' so I don't have to go with her everywhere! I used a sketch from the Sketches for Scrapbooking book, love those sketches!  I have also used the Exit Here collection, along with some Unity stamps, Twinery twine and my Cricut.  This is also for the Friends With Flair and the Fab 'N' Funky challenge - new








Perfect Form


My fourth post for today, please scroll down!

Sugar Chic Shopping



I couldn't believe it when I checked the clock and this had taken me 2 1/2 hours, my layouts are usually done in an hour or just over.  Guess I was just so engrossed in it ;)  I had fun with this one.  I used my Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic papers, available at StopAndScrap.  I also used a few of my Unity stamps and my Cricut (Art Philosophy, Plantin Schoolbook, Forever Young).  I made the leaves for the roses out of some of my May Arts V Striped Twill,  love how they look.  I did this for the City Crafter challenge - roses and the Young Crafter's Unite Challenge - flowers




Now today is actually my day on the StopAndScrap Blog and I have a bit more information as well as a few detail shots so be sure to head on over!
