Can't wait... tomorrow I can spill some more exciting news!

Project Life Week 26

This weeks photos were so fun to do! Jaimee's birthday and graduation all in one week.  We are so proud of her.  I used my Seen & Noted collection by Pebbles along with lots of Unity stamps, SRM Stickers and Elle's Studio tags.  I also used my Silhouette for a few cuts.

The first page, lots of Unity, Elle's and the Silhouette Cuts.

On this page, the Graduation themed stickers from SRM Stickers were perfect.  I love layering them on top of photos.

Who I Share it With

I am up on the Pebbles Blog.  I used the fun new Lakeside Collection paired up with some of my favorite Seen & Noted to scrap this family photo.  I have tucked in some Elle's Studio tags, a Technique Tuesday stamp, some SRM Stickers and finally a Silhouette Cut.

Some close ups:

I was inspired by this sketch at Elle's Studio:

Just for You

I am up on the Hampton Arts Blog today using some of my favorites.  I have paired up the Jillibean Soup stamps (love the jar!) with my Chilled Cucumber Soup collection by Jillibean (LOVE this too!).

And for my second card I used my Echo Park Here and Now, my Cricut for the glasses, the Silhouette for the speech bubbles and the Kiss Me Bella Blvd stamp from Hampton Arts

Inspired By # 80

You have until Wednesday night to play along with my Inspired By Challenge - this week it is a red, white and blue converse inspired challenge.

I really was inspired by the shoes and the colors.  As soon as I saw the photo I thought of my Trend Setter collection by Fancy Pants as I knew it would be perfect.  I used three different Unity stamp sets and then my Cricut to create the shoe.  I love this card!

The Sky is the Limit

I just got the new Find Your Wings and Fly - Sky's The Limit collection by My Mind's Eye and had to play with it.  I am just squeaking out the last of the grad cards that I need - the ceremony here is on Friday.  I have also used the Congrats All Ways by Papertrey Ink, the Grad cap is from ConGRADulations by There She Goes, the stars and mist are from Studio Calico and the twine is Divine Twine.  The star pin is from my stash.

Great News!

I can finally share the first (yes I am blessed, I do have a couple more to share a bit later) of my great news!  I am so happy to say that I was selected to be a part of the SRM Stickers Design Team!  Check out the SRM Blog for the announcement and the rest of the Design Team Members!

Just for the occasion I created a couple of cards that use SRM Stickers.

This first one uses the Pebbles Seen & Noted collection the Quick Cards - Teacher sticker by SRM Stickers and a couple of MFT Dies.  

This one is created with the Lakeside collection by Pebbles along with a Monthly Memories SRM Sticker (I LOVE the definition stickers) and an Elle's Studio tag.

I was inspired by this weeks sketch at Elle's Studio:

Project Life Week 25

I managed to get this week's Project Life Pages done.  I used my Family Ties collection by Pebbles along with some Elle's Studio tags, Technique Tuesday stamps and a bit of Divine Twine.

Now I have to head out to get some more errands done.  I can't wait until next weekend when I am finished school and then be on holidays!

Beautiful You

My husband is off at Whistler doing the Tough Mudder.  I really wanted to go but this time of year is very busy with end of school, report cards etc.  On top of that it is my daughter's grad coming up and her birthday - it just didn't work out.  I have a bunch of errands to run today but made time to play first.

I used my Kate & Co Cambridge Court collection by My Mind's Eye.  I have also used some Unity stamps, My Mind's Eye Washi Tape, Freckled Fawn veneer and some Silhouette Die Cuts.  You can see the stamps peeking out behind the middle cluster and the title at the bottom.

I am playing along with the June sketch challenge at My Mind's Eye.

Happy Camper S'More kit

I was up on the Echo Park Blog the other day but I thought I would share here too.  For this project I used my Happy Camper collection and upcycled a wooden box that I purchased at a thrift store.  I thought this would make a great thank you teacher gift (need s'more teachers like you) or just for someone heading off to camp.

I used my Cricut to cut out some of the shapes, like this fire.

I also used some SRM Stickers as labels.  I have packaged up some graham wafers, marshmallows, wrapped up chocolate bars and of course some hot chocolate.  The Twine is Divine Twine.

The Living is Easy

I am up on the Pebbles blog today and the theme this week was Summertime.  I decided to use my Lakeside collection as I just love the colors and the patterns.  I also used the Honeycomb Basics Mini Dot paper to create the sunburst.  I have tucked a lot of Elle's Studio Summer themed tags and such in behind the photos as well as for the center of the sun.  I ran a strip of Basics Washi Tape down then center of each sun ray before stitching it.  The sticker had the word lake but I replaced it with river since that is our favorite place to camp.  Finally, the title is cut with my Silhouette.

Featured on Laina Lamb's Blog!

I have no idea how I missed the post but I was featured on Laina Lamb's blog, I would love it if you took a peek!

Oh the Places You'll Go

I had fun playing and creating this layout.  On Prom Day the Grads in our town do a Grad Parade.  I loved seeing them all so happy and driving by.  Still can't believe my oldest is graduating this year.  Anyhow, I thought that the Amy Tangerine Ready Set Go Collection by American Crafts was perfect for scrapping the photos I got that day.  It felt good to use it as I have been hoarding it.  I have also used some Unity stamps, Freckled Fawn veneer and Elle's Studio tags along with a bit of twine.  The title was cut with my Silhouette.
