Happy, Happy, Happy, Happy

Hello there!  Thank's for joining me today, I have a fun challenge to share with you.  The Pals Paper Arts are hosting a sketch challenge this week.  It's a great CAS sketch, so there is no reason not to play along.  Link up your creation and you could be our next pick!


The new Amazing Birthday stamp set is, ok I am going to say it, AMAZING!  I love the variety of images, they work together so well.  Check out the die cut banner stamped in real red on vellum, fabulous!

This color palette of the Flashback DSP is fresh and fun.  Since I needed a masculine card, I chose the more manly of the patterns.  Some wonky sewing (on purpose!) helps to add interest without being feminine.

This whole paper pack is just a little bit distressed but not "dingy" which is a nice effect.

A matching envelope is in order.  I always use the crumb cake medium envelopes, they are super sturdy and can hold up to even the roughest mailing.

It's back to school time!  Mackie started her junior year of high school on Monday.  I have a picture of her standing by the door with her backpack ever since kindergarten.  One day (hopefully soon) I will gather them all up and do something with them.

I also used the Amazing Birthday stamp set to make Mackie a little bookmark note for her first day of school.  I used the colors of her backpack for inspiration.  Hello honey, rich razzleberry, and night of navy, they all matched very well.

We also celebrated my husband Chris' birthday, it's been a very busy week.  Check out Mackie's smile, she got her braces off a few weeks ago, we are all very happy with the results.

Don't forget two specials Stampin' Up! are currently offering:

Hello Darling Boy

Hello there!  I am happy to be back in the craft room creating now that summer is winding down.  All of our trips have been traveled, and school will start back in a few short weeks.  This week at the Pals Paper Arts we have a summer inspired color challenge for you.  Take a look at the colors, create something FAB, link it up, and you could be our next pick!

I am sure by now you have seen the Hello Darling stamp set used, it has quickly become a favorite.  This was my first try with it, but I have to say I am a big fan.  I used my stampin write markers in our challenge colors and colored the stamp.  Add a dash of sweet sadie washi tape, and the "boy" stamp from A Dozen Thoughts stamp set and it was complete.  Out came my banners framelits to give the sentiment some flair.

I've had this chevron tag a bag on my craft room table for a while now, it had been used but I could not throw it away.  Since it was a little crinkled, I decided to emboss it with the large dot embossing folder to smooth it out and texture it.  LOVE how it turned out.

A few of the stars from the July My Paper Pumpkin also made their way to the card, along with some island indigo bakers twine.

This is a 5x5 card which will be mailed to some friends that just had a baby boy.  A custom made envelope was made with the envelope punch board, I love this tool, it has quickly become a staple in my crafting.

Don't forget the BIG SHOT special is going on, I love my big shot, I just about use it on everything I make, it's very versatile!  Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!
