Golden Hello!


Hello there!  Are you ready to get sketchy?  This week's Pals Paper Arts challenge is a sketch that can be clean and simple or dressed up nicely.  Grab your provisions and create something fun, and head on over to link it up for your chance to be a PALS pick.



Gold foil?  Yes please!  I love how easy it is to die cut the Hello You framelits.  One of my new favorite things, the framelits are a good size and add a lot of punch!

Speaking of impact, this card is full of framelits, the beautiful flower is one die cut from the floral frames framelits, just crumple up a bunch and separate the card stock layers.  Are you missing the starburts framelits?  I am, so I was happy to see this small starburst in the baker's box thinlets set, (I have to say it motivated me to purchase it) it makes a perfect landing point for my sentiment.


My leaves are from the flower fair framelits, stamped in versamark with the Amazing Birthday stamp for some fun stripes.  Gold sequin trim adds another type of leaf.


I cannot forget to mention yet again the Pretty Petals DSP pack.  I have made a bunch of different types of cards from this paper pack alone, there are prints for every occasion!


This might look like it will be hard to mail, but that's not the case, the flower is soft and will flatten enough in an envelope made from our envelope punch board.

This is definitely a card mostly made with my big shot, it is an invaluable tool.  There are two pretty framelit sets included in the weekly specials, head over and take a look.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, let me know if you have any questions, I am happy to answer them, Hope you were inspired, enjoy!

A cup of Cheer


Hello there! Are you ready for Fall?  I know I am, after 95 degree weather today, I am so ready for cooler temps.  The Pals Paper Arts have a great fall color challenge this week to help you get in the mood for Fall.  Grab your provisions and create something fun to have a chance to be a PALS pick this week!



I usually always start a color challenge by looking at my DSP to see which matches up.  Old olive is making a come back this year, it's a favorite.  The Pretty Petals DSP stack has at least three prints in this color alone, so it was a must use.  Delightful dijon and cajun craze make their presence known with the chevron embossing folder and the Chalk Line stamp set.  Don't hesitate to mix patterns, it adds more detail to your projects!


This stamp set was included with July's My Paper Pumpkin kit.  I thought it would be cute colored with the challenge colors.  Don't think that just because you haven't signed up yet that it is unavailable to you, that is not the case, if you join, you will have the chance to purchase past kits!  So if you like a specific set, sign up now before it's sold out.


This is a simple card that has a lot of color and fun details that make it stand out.  So always think color and texture, mix those patterns, and a little bling will always go a long way.

This past week Mackie had her Senior Experience week, it started with team building camp for three days with her whole senior class, they had a lot of fun and even participated in ropes courses.


When they returned, rested, and cleaned up, we had the annual Senior Breakfast.  It was a great chance for the parents and students to review and reflect on past years, and trips.  It was a wonderful presentation, and I only cried a little bit.  The seniors had the chance to write a little note and attach it to a sunflower, which would be delivered to the new kindergarten classes.  Happily Tate is in the class of 2028, and he was excited to bring a flower home.  It was biter sweet since we DO have a senior and a kindergartner at the same school so they both took part in this memento.



Well thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired today, enjoy!
