Hello crafty friends!!
I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!
 Today I am back with another project that showcases some of those awesome 


I am using the new box card die for my project today!! Yay!!


I thought it would be fun to pair up the box card and those cute little "flying" bees! I created my box card using the Box Card die and cut it out of some pink cardstock. I used some floral paper scraps for the top flaps and some fun checkerboard type paper for the bottom panels. The checkerboard paper came from the Spring Flings Paper Pad. I used the Don't Worry stamp set and stamped out those fun images and colored them in with my Copic Markers. After they were all colored in, I used the coordinating Don't Worry dies to cut them out. I placed them into my box card, using acetate for the bees. I tied a bow to the front flap of my card using some crochet thread and added my greeting to the front flap as well. I think it turned out super cute!!

Sketch N Scrap Card Sketch #104

Hey crafty friends!!
Happy Sunday!!
Today starts a new card sketch challenge over at 
Here is a look at the second card sketch for August courtesy of Lisa:


and here is my take on the sketch:


I covered my A2 white card base with some fun plaid paper and then layered some coffee bean paper on top. I stamped out that sweet little girl and colored her in with my Copic markers. I decided to paper piece her coffee cup though. After I had her colored it, I used my Scan N Cut 2 to cut her out. I added her on top of a die cut circle and popped up the circle with some foam tape to my card front. I stamped my funny greeting, notched the ends and popped that up with foam tape also. I finished my card with some crochet thread at the top. I think it turned out so incredibly ca-ute!!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and take a look at my latest creation!

A Super Cute Hello

Hey crafty friends!
I hope you are all having a wonderful Saturday!
Today I have a super sweet and cute card to share with you that I made for the current challenge over at the Stamp Anniething's Stampers FB page


Here is the card that I made based on their sketch:


I created my card base from some white cardstock and then layered some minty green paper from a patterned paper pack over the top to cover the white. I added more patterned paper to form the layers shown in the sketch and added my crochet thread and tied it off with a bow. I colored that sweet little stamp with my Copic Markers, paper pieced her shirt, and used my Scan n Cut 2 to cut her out. I popped her up with some foam tape for a little dimension. I finished off my card with my greeting that I created using some alpha dies. (All products used are listed at the end of the post). I think it turned out so incredibly cute! The stamp set also comes with balloons but without them it looks like she is waving hi, at least it does to me :)

Sketch N Scrap #135

Hey crafty friends!!
Happy Tuesday!!
Today I am back with another sketch reveal from Sketch N Scrap.
Just in case you don't already know, Sketch N Scrap is a sketch challenge blog that offers Layout and Card sketches each month! Layout sketches are posted on the 1st and 15th of each month and card sketches are posted on the 5th and 20th of each month. 

Here is a look at the 2nd layout sketch for August provided to us by Heather, 
Layout Sketch #135:

Fabulous sketch right?? Here is the layout I created based on the above sketch:


At first I wasn't quite sure which photos I was going to use for the sketch and then when I saw these photos on my daughter's FB, I knew! She gave me the go ahead so I snagged them up lol! There isn't a lot of colors in the photos so I pretty much had my pic of papers in my stash. I really wanted to focus on them though. He is a yellow lab with green eyes and a brown nose and she is a girly girl. When I came across this floral paper, it was perfect! It incorporated the yellow, green and brown as well as the girly. Does that make sense or am I just crazy? lol The paper was from a stack so all the other papers coordinated perfectly! I used punches for the photo corner pieces, flowers and leaves. The scallop came from the Cricut as well as the font used for my title.

I'm posting a little later than normal but I created a card earlier today and just had to share it tonight :)

I saw this sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch
and thought it would be fun to play along. Here is a look at the sketch:


Fun right? Here is a look at the card that I created based on the above sketch:


I stamped my sloth and colored him in with my Copic markers. I used a circle die to cut him out and then another circle die to create the little black border around him. I adhered him onto a piece of kraft cardstock, added a fun green border and popped the panel up with some foam tape onto my card base. I heat embossed my greeting with some white embossing powder and added a few enamel dots. I finished my card with some doodles around the edge of my popped up panel. I've had this sloth stamp for a little while now and have never used it until this card. Yay!!

I will also be entering my card into the following challenges:

Hello crafty friends!!
I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!
 Today I am back with another project that showcases some of those awesome 


For my card today, I'm using some older products as well as a new product that will be making its debut in the Pink and Main Store tomorrow.


I love making shaped cards so I pulled out my trusty Scallop Hexagons Dies and created my card base. I used a hexagon from the Nested Hexagons dies and cut out my green layer from the Shades of Spring 6x6 Paper Pad and layered that on top. Next I cut out a circle from some white cardstock using the Stitched Circle Dies and stamped that sweet little cactus from the *new*Sticky Note stamp set. I colored him in with my Copics and popped up that piece with some foam tape. I stamped my greeting, also from the Sticky Note set, and flagged the ends and matted it onto some black cardstock and added that to the top of my card with more foam tape. I finished off this cute little card with a bit of doodling for a little more added interest.

Happy Saturday!!
Today starts a new card sketch challenge over at 
Here is a look at the first card sketch for August courtesy of Heather:


and here is my take on the above sketch:


I created my A2 card base from some Kraft cardstock and I doodled all around the card with a brown pen.

I added that sweet little doggy and dog house onto a white circle and added my greeting and my card was done!

Birthday Greeting From Under The Sea

Hi crafty friends!
I hope you are having a fabulous Friday so far!
Today I have a super fun and cute card to share with you.


I am running a little low on birthday cards so I thought this would be a fun one to make since we are still in the Summer season :) I used some fun papers from Doodlebug and layered them onto my card. I stamped that sweet little mermaid from Jaded Blossom in Versafine Ink and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I colored her in with my Copics and then used my Scan n Cut to cut her out. I popped her up onto my card front with some foam tape and added some glossy accents to her pearls. I stamped my greeting and added them to my card and finished it off with a little epoxy seashell and some pearls in the upper right corner. I think she is absolutely darling!!

My Favorite Wizard!

Hey crafty friends!
I hope you are having a terrific Tuesday!

Today I wanted to quickly share with you a project that I made for the July Customer Challenge that Jaded Blossom had last month. The challenge was to create a project and only use JB stamps/dies and submit it for judging! I'm so happy to say that my project was one of the winners!!! How awesome is that!! 

Now that the winners have been revealed, I wanted to share with you all what I made.
If you know me, you know that my daughter and I love and are a little obsessed with a certain wizard, so I just knew I wanted to make something for her to brighten her day a little.


I created this fun little treat box for her and filled it with some chocolates. To create my box, I used the Scallop Caddy Die (I love this die!) & decorated it with some fun patterned papers. I stamped out my Wizard from the My Favorite Wizard stamp set and colored him in with my Copic markers, stamped my greeting and attached it all to the front of my box. I added a few gold sequins and added my candies. I used the Wizard Candies stamp set to decorate the chocolates to make it even more fun!


Thanks so much for taking a look at my creation!

Hello crafty friends!!
I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!
 Today I am back with another project that showcases some of those awesome 


For my card today, I'm using some new products so you are getting a little peek of some things that will be coming your way next week. Yay!!!


I started off with a black A2 card base and layered some pretty striped paper from the Beach Babe paper pad on top and then added a little scallop teal border along the bottom using one of the dies from the Scallop Borders set. I cut out my heart from the shape tool in my Cricut Design Space and cut off part of it. I stamped my greeting from the soon to be released set called, Happy For You in black ink, added some doodles and popped up my heart with foam tape making sure to line up the edges. I used the soon to be released Happy die and cut it out from the same teal cardstock and added that to my heart, making sure to situate it where it would hang off a little for just a bit of interest. I finished the card with a few clear sequins. I love how it turned out!

Sketch N Scrap #134

Hey crafty friends!!
Happy August!! Oh my, this year is flying by!!
Today I am back with another sketch reveal from Sketch N Scrap.
Just in case you don't already know, Sketch N Scrap is a sketch challenge blog that offers Layout and Card sketches each month! Layout sketches are posted on the 1st and 15th of each month and card sketches are posted on the 5th and 20th of each month. Here is a look at the latest layout sketch provided to us by Lisa, Layout Sketch #134:


Isn't that sketch wonderful!! I immediately knew which photos I wanted to use for it. I love when that happens!


For my layout, I went with some photos of some selfies that we took on the 4th. My son couldn't be with us that day since he was working and our dog is terrified of the noises so we just cooked out and hung out at home, keeping it pretty low key.  The three of us (hubby, daughter & me) did hop in the car right after dinner to go grab ice cream so that was fun lol! I'm rambling lol! Anywho, for my cardstock, I decided to go with a "wood grain" patterned paper for the back and adhered it to some white cardstock. I stuck with the traditional colors of the 4th for the rest. You can't tell from this photo but the stars on the white cardstock are actually gold foil. I added the date and some doodles with my white gel pen. I put my journaling along the bottom of the layout after this photo was taken.

A Little Snail Mail

Hi crafty friends!
Today I am back to share a card that I created using some fabulous dies and stamps that can be found in the Dies R Us Store

I'm making it my mission to be better about sending more happy mail starting in August. In order to do that, I need to build up my stock a little. lol! 

I started by pulling out some dies that I thought would be perfect for the card I had in mind. They were the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders and Lawn Fawn Happy Mail dies. I die cut all my pieces and started assembling. 


Here is a look at the completed card:


The mailbox was so super easy to put together! I decided to put a greeting along the edge of one of the hillside borders and heat emboss it in white. The greeting and the cute little snail came from the Lawn Fawn Gleeful Gardens stamp set. Once my card was finished, it still didn't look finished to me so I decided to add some fun Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Borders to the top of my card to complete my little scene that I created. Adorable!

Don't forget to come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge BlogThere's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us StoreFor your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.

Sketches In Thyme Project Life Style Guest Designer

Hey crafty friends!
I hope you are all having a terrific Thursday!
I'm so happy to announce that today I am a guest designer for the
If you enjoy pocket style scrapbooking along with sketches and haven't heard of them before, you really should check them out. They offer 4 sketches every month, and since I love sketches and am forever behind in my albums that really helps me get some cards ready to go for a future layout. 

The sketch I was given to work with for my guest DT spot is this awesome sketch:



Here is my take on the sketch:


I adore how this turned out and can't wait to put it into my album! It was super simple to make too! I used an older pack of ready to go cards. Not sure which ones they were since I no longer have the packaging, but I wanna say they were a Snap Pack from Simple Stories. I took the minty colored journal card for my base and cut up two other cards to create the embellie to make the card my own. The embellishment is popped up with some foam tape for a little dimension, I love doing that! I added a little heart, some crochet thread and some Nuvo drops and this card was done! 

I have enjoyed playing along in these challenges for the last couple of months and this month was no exception! I just had to play and create something with the other three sketches also. haha! Here is a look at the other sketches for this month:

Sketch #77:

My take:


This card was done like the other card. I simply cut up cards from the set to create my own. The banners are only attached at the edge so that the 2x3 photo can easily be adhered.

Sketch #78:

My take:


I cut up some of the scraps to create the banners on this one. Tied some crochet thread around the top and added some more Nuvo drops onto the card.

Sketch #79:

My take:


I used more scraps for this one and added the sweet little camera. The camera was actually on a 2x2 card that was in the set and I just fussy cut it out and popped it up with some foam tape. I added a sentiment from a My Creative Time stamp set and more Nuvo drops.



These were all so easy to make but I love how just by simply altering some pre made cards, they feel more like my own style and the sketches just made it so much easier! Gotta love that!!

Ok so last month when I played along, I posted where I was at in each of my PL albums. I thought it would be kinda neat if I kept myself accountable each month by posting my progress. Here are my stats that I posted last month per album (album year/month currently on):

2016: June
2017: halfway through March

Not much progress this month I'm afraid. Still no movement on my 2016 album and I am now only halfway through April in my 2017 album. There is progress though so I will happily take it, even if it isn't as fast as I would like haha!

A big Thank You to Lori and the Sketches In Thyme PL Style Challenge Blog for having me guest design! I had so much fun!!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!
I hope you have a great crafty day!!
