Curvy Box Die

Check out these two boxes I made using the Curvy Box die by Stampin' Up! I love this die and can't imagine life without it now. Want to make these cuties too? Let's have a party.

I saw how someone else had made these and decided to make my own. I think I did pretty good.

Contact me today to schedule your party to make these and other cute boxes.

Thanks for looking.

Feathers are in for 2014

Stampin' Up! finally has made a stamp set to go with feather framelits . Yeah!!! Check out this card I sent to my team members for being so awesome!

I love the colors: daffodil delight, coastal cabana, calypso coral. I used the background hardwood stamp in Baked Brown Sugar. I truly am thankful for my team of TURTLES. That's what I call them since they are. Visit my team page above to learn more about them and why they are called TURTLES.

Planning my team getaway trip now and can't wait to pamper those who promoted and achieved higher sales and recruited. They rock!

Looking forward to seeing them soon.

Thanks for looking.

Bible Journaling

Recently I was invited to join an online bible journaling group. They are amazing artists creating beautiful art in their bibles or journals. This really appealed to me so I started to do a bit of art myself.

I am using Stampin' Up!s This and That Journal instead of my bible (I just can't do that yet). I usually get inspired by a verse from the bible that I have read on Facebook. Then I use my stamps, inks, markers, stickers, etc. to create a page in my journal. While making the page I read the passage several times and think about what it means to me.
God works in our lives and encourages us to follow our dreams. I enjoy making cards, crafting and scrapbooking. Here's a huge sign from God saying that I'm doing what I should be. My church asked me to make up a scrapbook for a special person who was retiring from our church. She let me do pretty much whatever I wanted to do. Here's the cover of the scrapbook I made:

She loved it and I'm so blessed to be a part of this church community.

I used the blendabilities to color and draw the images. Sponged the sun beams using Daffodil Delight.  I also stamped using the stamp set from one of the Paper pumpkin kits for the leaves in three shades of green.

I hope you are inspired to start journaling and creating in your bibles. It is amazing what God can do in our lives.

Thanks for looking and have a blessed day.

My Team enjoyed making these projects

This was last month but I thought I would share them on here. If you are on Facebook you'll get to see my projects posted quicker.

We did a shaker card using the star framelits and then made the cute box using the envelope punch board. Do you want to have fun coming to my classes and learning these cool techniques? Join my team or set up a private class to learn how to do these projects and more.
Thanks for looking.

Project Life! Get those pictures in books

I love using Project Life to scrapbook with. It's amazing how quickly I get my pictures into albums. Here's one of the kits I used and some pages I made:

I'm planning to hold another class so let me know if you want to do it. My last class we got 10 pages done in 2 hours. That's a world record for me.

Thanks for stopping by today. Make sure you sign up for my emails. Check the side bar for the link.

Crop for the Cure! 2014 was a blast!

I am just now posting the pictures of the crop and updating my blog with all the fun we had.

My church stepped up and helped me this year by hosting the event. The lighting wasn't as bright as the other venue and it was a bit more cozy but everyone had fun.

My display board and table.  I was designing the classes I taught that day. No joke!

The boys worked so hard making jambalaya!

I want to thank Olive Garden for supplying the salads and gift certs for the goodie bags. I also want thank all the vendors including:

Scraphappy from Pensacola
Origami Owl
Initials Inc.
Jamberry Nails
doTERRA Oils
Mary Kay
Close to My Heart
Stampin' Up!

I do this event every year and raise money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This year I was able to raise over $1000. Research is very important to help fight this disease and to find a cure. I feel blessed by all of you for helping me to make a difference. I especially want to thank Kristie Johnson who helped with set up and her husband was amazing with helping in so many ways. I can't thank them enough for going above and beyond the call of duty.

I hope to be able to do this event again next year. Get on my email list to stay connected.

God bless!

Make a difference! Ronald McDonald House Charities Stamp Set

I love the new Ronald McDonald House Stamp Set. Check it out:

Flamingo Lingo Clear-Mount Stamp Set 134306                        
$3 will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charities with the purchase of each stamp set.

I loved the samples in the book with this set but had to change it up a bit and use the bleaching technique for the background.

Here's what I came up with.

This stamp set coordinates with three different punches plus the Bitty Banner framelits.
Petite Petals   133322
Scallop Oval  119856
Petite Curly Label  129405
Bitty Banners  129267
I used Calypso Coral for the ink color on the flamingo and the cardstock. Bleaching the cardstock made it turn to a perfect shade of Daffodil Delight. I added a touch of Coastal Cabana.
I hope you enjoyed my card. Have a wonderful day!

Here's last month's kit.

I grab the box on my way out the door on a mini vacation with the family. I thought, "If we find some time to craft this will be perfect for it." It turns out that we had some down time on the trip. The girls said they were bored so I brought out the box.

Here's my girls making cards, envelopes and stamping.

Do you want to try receiving this box every month? Each month is different and you'll get lots of great product from Stampin' Up! to use on the projects that comes in the box or you can use them for other projects. Every kit has a unique stamp set and ink spot. This alone is worth the cost but add awesome papers, cardstock, embellishments, pop dots, twine, etc. you'll be wishing you had signed up for the 1/2 off deal. So make sure you visit the website:


Here's a display board that I created using past paper pumpkin kits. I usually change it up a little to make it unique to me. I love how easy it is to create fun and amazing projects and not have to own it all.
