Precious Layout


Today is my day up on the Scrapbook Adhesives Blog and I have a layout to share - yes a layout, don't do enough of those lately!

I used the Cienna collection by Elle's Studio, isn't it pretty?!  Of course some Scrapbook Adhesives

I love this photo of my daughter and grand daughter and couldn't wait to scrap it. (wish I looked that good in selfies ;) )

For more information and detailed shots, please see the Scrapbook Adhesive Blog.

Sweet Routine of card making

I played again... this summer is starting out just right ;)

I LOVE the Sweet Routine collection by Webster's Pages - the colors, patterns, flowers... just love it!



I also used the French Kiss Life LOL by Unity for some subtle background stamping.  I will be using this set over and over. 

I fussy cut the roses from some of the pattern paper and of course finished off with a Silhouette cut and some stitching.

I paired the Tea for Two stamp set (one of my most used PTI sets) and coordinating die for this card. 

 The rose on the cup was fussy cut and adhered, the plate and cup were mounted on foam squares.

Finally a just because card.  

I punched out the circle from some of the pattern paper, adhered the die cut tea cup and mounted with foam squares.

Yippee Picnic Time

I snuck in some crafty time before the chaos of the day begins :)

For this card I used the Yippee collection by Chickaniddy Crafts along with some PTI stamps and dies.


I haven't used my Friendship Jar for awhile and it is one of my favorites.  I also love the lemon die from My Favorite Things

Thanks for visiting and happy Saturday!

Unity Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to this week's Unity Blog Hop.  I do hope you have been leaving comments along the way for your chance at one of the prizes.



I have created a card for you today (surprise, surprise ;)  )  using an Angie Girl (Erica Girl) along with a couple of SMAK kits (All in the Numbers;  Leave Ordinary Behind).  I paired these with the Office Suite collection by Fancy Pants - love the soft colors mixed with the black.


The tag is from All in the Numbers and the sentiment along with the background butterflies (can you see them subtly stamped?) is from the Leave Ordinary Behind kit.  I then mounted the main image on some Foam Squares for dimension.

Altered Cigar Box

I am up on the My Mind's Eye Blog today with this altered cigar box.  Although the Fancy That paper is a Wedding themed collection, you wouldn't know it here.


After painting the box, I put my Cricut to use, tucked in some vellum leaves and part of a glassine bag and voila done.
Now it will hold some gourmet chocolates and makes a perfect thank you gift.  

For more information and detail shots, please see the My Mind's Eye Blog.

My Mind's Eye Blog.

I was up on the MME Blog today.  I used the Hello World collection to create a couple of cards that I thought would also work well for some Graduation cards.


Of course I used my 3D Foam Squares by Scrapbook Adhesives to adhere the die cut jets.  


For more information and close ups, hop on over to the MME Blog.

You were meant to shine

Hello Gorgeous

I don't play just for fun often anymore, but I sense that is going to change... a renewed sense of energy and well being (if you are a friend on Facebook you will have seen my post regarding my Matcha tea, etc)

Anyhow I couldn't wait to play with this 365 collection by Chickaniddy Crafts, it is just, well... gorgeous.


I just got the Paper Smooches Shoes die and it is just so fun.  Finally, of course a Silhouette Die cut.
