Hello dear blog followers, boy has it been a long time since I have posted anything here. Sorry about that, but I have been very busy enjoying the first 2 years of my daughter’s life and being a full time worker away from the home.
My hobbies have changed drastically since we have become a family of 3, I haven’t stamped in over a year and a half and I have started down sizing the amount of papercrafting supplies I have. I started documenting our new life, Project Life style, it allows me to capture all of our memories with photos and journaling in a quick and creative fashion. I’m able to use my love of design to create all my own journaling cards, which I love all things “custom”. I hope to share some of that here.
I’ve also taken up sewing, I love that I can sew something for our family or as a gift and it can live and be loved for many many years to come.
I’m also in the process of creating a site for you to order some of the cards I’ve made, over 7 years of stamping, I have a few cards I’d like to sell off for others to enjoy. That site should be up and running within the following month (if not sooner). As soon as I launch it, I’ll have a create a post about it.
That’s all the time I have right now. I’ll be back much sooner than last time!
Hello there, I know it’s been awhile, but I’m still alive and still waiting on baby Abigail to arrive. She’s due October 18th, hope she’s on time.
The project I have to share with you today is one of two projects I created for the UStamp Paper Parade event that is going on right now. If your interested in signing up, click on the banner below or the button on the right side. There are 40 projects that each have great tips and techniques. There is also a pdf for each one to print out and save for future projects. Hope you enjoy!
For my first project, I choose to cover a flat wooden clock. It was really easy and a lot of fun. You can decorate it specifically for any room, just make sure your embellishments don’t stick out farther than the hands. I hope this inspires you to make something 3 dimensional!

Hello all, so sorry for my long absence. I completely lost track of time and now it’s the middle of August. Only a little over 2 months til our baby is due. We are so excited and there’s tons of stuff that still needs to be done in preparation for her. I’m working on a few wall hanging for her room that I promise to share once finished and hung.
Today’s card is one that was inspired by a card I saw on another demonstrator’s blog. This little rhino is so cute, he comes from the Kidoodles set, this set has 6 images that span a few themes… I just had to have it!

Hello and happy Friday! I know recently I have been posting, but not saying much. I’m a graphic designer so I’m on the computer all day, so when I come home I like to put my swollen kankles up somewhere far away from my personal computer. I’ve been getting on just long enough to set up a post and check my emails. The project I have for you today is a card I taught at a Vintage class I offered awhile back. My husband gave his seal of approval on this one, said it was definitely vintage. I’m really glad the Nature Walk stamp set is available in the new Stampin’ Up Idea Book & Catalog, which by the way is available online sometime today. If you have not seen it yet, here is a link to my website where you can download your very own copy. Unfortunately, the greeting is from a retired hostess set, but the new catalog has so many great new greetings, you won’t even miss it!
Stamps: Nature Walk, Because I Care
Paper: Very Vanilla, Neutral Prints Pack DSP, Elegant Soirée DSP
Ink: Cherry Cobbler Marker, Old Olive Marker, Early Espresso Marker
Accessories: Big Shot Die-cut Machine, Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, Antique Brads, Distressing Tool Kit, 1-3/8 Circle Punch, Victoria Crochet Trim
I hope you and your loved ones have a happy 4th of July weekend!
