Happy Birthday!

Thursday was my hubby's birthday - and I used the latest sketch at Mojo Monday to make his card:

I raided my scraps and used a bunch of bold scraps, layered on black, to put it together:

I added the "happy birthday" sentiment from Paper Smooches and entering it in their Anything Goes challenge:

  There is lots of dimension on this card, too!

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your Saturday.

I Dig You

I loved the sketch over at Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge blog:

I used the Woofers and Tweeters stamps set with my favorite doggie (who looks JUST like my puggle, Jax).  I made a cluster of the 3 icons in this set and white embossed them on black for the background. The white layer is popped up for dimension.

Thanks for stopping by! If you're on the East Coast like me, enjoy the snow :)

Thanks :)

I am so grateful that I am always in need of thank you cards :)  I love color challenges because my approach is to dig through my drawer of scraps in hunt for such colors and patterns and always end up with an unlikely combination!  But love the results!

This week's color challenge at MFT Card Challenges was:

And this is my card!

I used my MFT Decorative Doily die on this square card. I how intricate it is but still looks great cut with patterned paper too.

I know I'm late to the trend party, but I am LOVING adding enamel dots to everything :)

Happy Sunday! I'm headed to the grocery store with the rest of the crazies before the blizzard :)

Triple Card Share!

Due to this beautiful snowfall and early dismissal from school, I was able to create 2 cards during naptime and one more after bedtime :) Score!  [The script is from the Vrsly app]

Fitting, I started with this winter card for the snowman challenge at Fantabulous Cricut. I used the sketch at Sugar Sketch Challenge.

The papers are from an older Bo Bunny collection and that cute snowman (with gems) is from the Doodlebug cartridge.

I used the MFT card sketch for this soft and sweet baby card. The patterned paper is from Best Creations and is glittery.

That adorable Winnie the Pooh quote sentiment is one of my new Verve stamps :) I am sharing this card at Frosted Designs for the "A New ___" challenge, since this is for a new baby :)

I will leave you with a daydream.. lol. The challenge at Scrappy Mom Stamps was to make a card featuring something hot.  I am closing my eyes and envisioning the beach these days!

I used the Doodlecharms cart since it was still in my machine, for the sun and palm tree. The crab is fussy cut from patterned paper! The card is matted on a cork background for the challenge at The Paper Girls challenge.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! 
Hope you are having a good week :)

Project Life {Week2}

Happy Saturday! I am sharing my Week 2 of Project Life for the "Pinspire" challenge at Paper Issues:

The "pinspiration" board featured these photos:

This worked out perfect for this week because we had our first snow of the year and our first snow day!! (I'm a first grade teacher.. we love snow days more than children hehe!)

I blocked off a 6x12 panel for my snow day pictures and used the Simple Stories "Snow Fun" mini set:

I really love how it turned out!  Other things going on this week:

My daughter is VERY into playing with her babies.. love seeing her imagination grow!

On the title card, I added 2 photos of Daddy showing her how silly you look with Mrs. Potato Head lips :)

My poor baby got the stomach bug last Thursday :(  Here's photos of her either sleeping or having quiet time. About the only things we did for 3 days!

More milestones.. first time out.. longest 90 seconds of both our lives LOL!... first pillow pillow.. probably one of the last times she'll let me rock her to sleep (she just wants to curl up on her pillow now), and some mini photos of favorite things.

I am also linking up at Lasting Memories for scrapbooking "moments captured". Project Life is certainly all about capturing everyday moments!  And another link up at Paper Issues called "Say it Aint Snow outside" lol!
I hope you are enjoying your weekend! 
Thanks for stopping by :)

Another Year Older.... and wiser :)

It's a new year and in addition to my Project Life goals, I'd like to build up my card stash again. Everyone has a birthday and they come every year (like it or not lol), so I started there!!

I diecut that adorable owl to go with my Scrappy Mom "Owl Occassions" stamp set. They are having a "sugar rush" challenge, so I dressed up my owl with a party  hat and cupcake. All of the papers and stickers are from my new Doodlebug's "Sugar Rush" collection, ironically enough :)

I am also linking up to Simon Says' "something new" challenge for using my new Doodlebug :) Thanks for looking!!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I'm so excited to start another year of Project Life.   Even though I'm still working on my 2013 and 2014 albums, I'm starting 2015 and making a resolution to document the previous week each week. As I have time, I'll go back and do a past page. Almost 2 years behind, why don't I throw in the towel you may ask? This is why:

As I'm trying to take advantage of Elmo's hypnosis and photograph my Week 1 layout, my daughter wedges herself between me and the table and SQUEALS in delight when she sees a photo of her and her daddy. Printed out, embellished, and journaled for her to trace with her tiny finger. That's why.

Remind me of this reasoning when I'm, somehow, again, fallen 6 more months behind, k? Deal.

Here's my Week 1 page, minus cute 18 month old. It's one page because Jan 1st fell on a Thursday.

My girl really misses playing outside everyday. On a day where it wasn't so windy and brisk, we bundled up and went to the playground for a 1/2 hour. She was in heaven and even climbed the steps to the slide by herself for the first time (standing up).

I *had* to print out some of my favorite Facebook pics of my team winning the wildcard game. Cowboys fan here. Please don't judge haha. And I'm currently in love with using glitter paper. Everywhere.

My girl's favorite card apparently - her and daddy (and puppy) reading. And a photo marking her 18 month milestone :)

I was inspired to get started on this page earlier this week because of the new challenge at Paper Issues "Popping the Cork". I thought documenting the first week of the new year seemed appropriate! You also needed to use Elle's Studio products. I went through my stash and found this awesome PL stamp set, as well as 2 sets of journaling cards from the Love You More and Penelope lines.

I'm also linking up at Simon Says Stamp for their "Something New" challenge, since I scrapped the new year :) Thanks for visiting today! Hope to be back soon to share more pages. Have a great weekend!
