Happiness & Joy

I just love the big sentiments in the Bold Sentiments II: Birthdays stamp set!
This is one of my favorite SP and Company stamps!
 I stamped on a banner and the sentiment is big enough to carry this whole card with just a couple embellishments. And, many sentiments in this set can be used for any celebration - not just a birthday! This would be a great sentiment for a New Year's card even.
Thanks for stopping by today!
I hope  you and your family have a very Merry Christmas!
My kids are out of school now so today will be a cookie-making/crafting kind of day!

Totally Awesome!

Well, it's time for another challenge over at The Paper Girls! This time we are using neon!
So much fun.
I am a child of the '80s and love anything to do with that decade!
I made some neon rolled flowers in pink and orange. Punched some leaves in neon green.
Made a banner in turquoise using Mix n Match Sentiments: Friends stamps to create my custom sentiment. How can you use neon and not say "Totally Awesome"?!?

 And then a few neon hearts to fill in some space.
Come join us for this fun challenge and your chance to win some totally radical crafting supplies.
Be there or be square.

Merry Christmas

This week at SP and Company stamps we are using non-traditional Christmas colors.
I was so excited about this challenge! I just love using non-traditional colors for all holidays.
Here's what I came up with:
 This is one of my favorite color combos right now. I have a piece I made for my mantle with these same papers and if I ever get it finished I'll show you.
I just love this sentiment from Bold Sentiments II Holidays:
It fit perfectly in my frame.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Check out the SP blog for more ideas using their stamps.
And make sure you check back next month for our NEW challenge that you can participate in!

Here's a card I made several weeks ago but forgot to post!
I saw this card and knew right away I wanted to replicate it.
I used Unity's Just a Note for the frame. The leaves were from a Unity grab and I can't find the name of the set on the website. Maybe it's retired now. Anyway, I love these leaves.
So simple. I mass-produced these to send out for an event last month.
I'm thinking I need to make some with pinecones and snowflakes now!
Thanks for stopping by!

It's a boy!

This week I've got one more project for SP and Company using the Hello, World! Baby Announcement builder stamp set:
And, surprise! It's actually a baby announcement this time!
Lots of layers and mixed patterns including This & That Charming 6x6 pad (the aqua paper and yellow/white stripe) and This & That Christmas Borders (green chevron) plus some cardstock from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by today!
