This was next…

Inspired By Presents

Hey, happy Thursday! Can you believe we are nearing the end of November already?!  Since my birthday is next week, I thought this inspiration photo was perfect. It inspired me to make a trio of birthday cards and all supplies are CTMH except the SWEET die (The Stamps of Life)

Now come on over and play!

I've been playing with paper this weekend....

I've been playing with paper lately but haven't posted here (I do post on my Facebook Page or Instagram - you should follow me there ;) )

First up I was just playing around and combined some old and new CTMH (the bear is from the January 2023 SOTM)

Next up I created a couple of cards using mostly CTMH but the dies and embossing folder are not.

That's all. I have a cute little tag coming soon, maybe tomorrow.

Documenting Happiness

I’ve had this project in mind for awhile now and have just never started. The challenge over at @asyouseeitchallenge spurred me on. 

I’ve got a bunch of old playing cards and this little wooden box that I had kept. The cards fit perfectly so I have wanted to do a grateful/what makes me happy collection up cycling each card with a different theme. 

I’ve learned not to say I will do one/week etc and I didn’t want to do it in a book/journal because if I don’t fill up the book it bothers me 🤣. So this is perfect I can do as much or as little as I want. 

Today’s card - hiking. Hiking makes me happy and I’m grateful to be able to do it in spite of my arthritis. 

Papers are from Echo Park Paper and stamps are CTMH 

Do you journal about things you’re grateful for?

The book that gave me the idea.

Inspired By Gnomes

The new Inspired By Challenge is up and I was inspired by the colors. I dug through my stash of Christmas/Holiday papers (I'm a sucker for them) and found these from Carta Bella. I paired it up with a CTMH stamp set. The main image is on foam squares for dimension.

Now here are the challenges. Head on over to the blog to see what the rest of the DT have created

I dug out some old CTMH paper as I thought it would work well with the new Elf stamp and background dies. The elves are mounted on foam squares.

Scrappy tags

I was using up some scraps (the new tag die from CTMH is fun to use - so many different tags. Everything is CTMH except sentiment dies and snowflake punch. 

I used the sketch from PCC to create the main tag. 

Christmas season has begun LOL

Yep I am on to Christmas cards! My grand daughter and I played in the craft room on the weekend. Apparently we had reindeer on our minds :)

I love this reindeer from Pink and Main. All else is from CTMH. I mounted him on foam squares for dimension. 

I played along with the sketch from Try Stamping on Tuesday:

Then I gave my granddaughter some older papers and she decided the papers and stamps she wanted to use. I cut them. She did the rest :). Not bad for an 8 year old

Inspired By Pinecones

Boy time flies, I always think I am going to create more and before I know it a week has gone by! 
For this week's Inspired By Challenge I was inspired by the simpleness, the colors and the sketch. I couldn't decide which sentiment I liked and where I wanted it so I didn't put one.  Have you ever done that?

Check out the challenges and come on over and play.
