Painted Petals Sneak Peek

Another sneak peek from the Occasions catalog today - it won't be long until you can order!  This stamp set is called Painted Petals and there is also a designer series paper that goes along with it called Painted Blooms.  Although I didn't use it on this card, I LOVE IT! 

The leaves and petals are separate stamp sets and the dots are another.  there are three sentiment stamps in the set, but I chose the thank you one...

December Paper Pumpkin

When I finally opened my December Paper Pumpkin kit, I happened to do it about 15 minutes before the bus arrived to drop off my kids from school.  So, that meant that Maddie wanted to check it out right away too and wouldn't you know it, some of my supplies disappeared :)  

I love that she enjoys making cards too and never mind when she wants me to share the kit with her...

It was a fun one and I enjoyed using the "scraps" on the cards in addition to the pieces that were supposed to be used.

I know that there are refills available for the kit while supplies last and you can always sign up for a kit yourself as well - a little surprise in the mail every month!   (You can choose to skip a month or cancel at any time too)

You can also give subscriptions as a gift (or for yourself) right here!

Sweet Taffy Layout

I am falling behind with the posts again!  Having the kids home is great, but it also means I don't have the few minutes here and there to create or put together my blog posts...

This layout uses the Sweet Taffy Designer series paper along with the Banner Blessings stamp set. 

I have also used one of the Project Life Stampin' Up! journaling cards and a printed title and journaling.

Junior High

Another first day of school page - my oldest started Junior High this year!  Again, this was a premade ready to add pictures page so it was quick for me to get completed. 

Christmas paper doesn't need to be for Christmas projects only :)  Again, I have used some Project Life stickers for the title, quick and easy.

Hello Sunshine

When I saw this project kit in the Occasions Catalog, I knew my daughter would want me to put one together for her.  It is the cutest little wire frame and I didn't use half the pieces in the kit to put it together.  

The "Best.Day.Ever." image is from a Sale-a-bration stamp set called Best Day Ever, go figure! :)  It is stamped with Colorbox Chalk ink (also in the Occasions catalog in three colors - woo hoo!). 

Sometime things don't quite turn out the way you planned...on the Crushed Curry photo die cut frame, I accidentally dropped the Colorbox chalk ink...oops!  Well, I decided to just go with it and added some more distressing with it.

(My pom pom skills need a little work...)

This would make a great gift for so many people!  I am already thinking a 4H project for my nieces as well...Oh the possibilities.

County Fair

The county fair is always such a fun time, I try to get some fun pictures each year for  the kids scrapbooks, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.  This year I was able to get a couple good ones and put together pages for each child.  

I had some leftover stamped and die cut Perfectly Preserved images that I thought went well with the theme and added some Typeset specialty paper and some sewing as well. 

The sewing is a new thing for me and it was fun to play with a little without getting too technical.

Watercolor Winter

Each catalog has some great Simply Created kits and they seem to get better and better every time!  This one is in the Holiday Catalog and is called Watercolor Winter Simply Created Kit.  This is just one of the cards I put together with it (the kit makes 20 and you will have leftover pieces!)

I used the paintbrush, water and Soft Suede ink to watercolor the sled and letters.  For the snowflake, I used the template in the kit and a inked up sponge. 

I will share some more creations from the kit in the next few days - don't miss out on getting one for yourself before the Holiday Catalog disappears!

Happy Happy!

Another sneak peek for you today from the Occasions Catalog, I had to make a birthday card to share with you today since my middle child is turning 11! 
Happy Birthday Wyatt! 

I made a one layer card and layered some of the stamps in the set (it is photopolymer and easy to layer the images!!).  There are sentiments for birthday, baby, graduation, wedding and celebrating in this set so it is very versatile as well as fun!
