Enjoy The Summer


Hello out there! Summer is here!! Wow, it came fast and now it will be loooong days of sunscreen, water and lots of ice cream;) 

Today is my day over on the Quick Creations blog/shop. I'm featuring an E. Bell image on my card today, with a water-colored background. The idea behind this was for this little girl to be on a resort somewhere, enjoying her mint chocolate chip ice cream and getting ready to build a sand castle. Hmmmmm, I wish I was on a beautiful resort as well. Most of my supplies can be found at the Quick Creations shop. Make sure you take a look around as Noelle is currently having a Summer Sale.
Happy Shopping and Happy Thursday!

SUPPLIES:
Image: Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps - Apple Blossom Summer Ice Cream 
Paper: Carta Bella - Soak Up the Summer
Distress Inks: Walnut Stain, Frayed Burlap, Peeled Paint, Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass, Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey.

You Color My World

Submitting to: TGF Farm Fresh June Challenge

Hello out there! Wow, summer is coming in fast and soon it will be loooong days of sunshine, popsicles, bubbles and bbq - although it's not very different from our year round weather ;) 

Today is my day over on the Quick Creations blog/shop. I'm featuring Twirl Anya on my card with a very colorful background. The idea behind this was for it to be a very happy card to be sent to a special someone. Aww, isn't she a cutie with her pixie cut? Most of my supplies can be found at the Quick Creations shop. Make sure you take a look around as Noelle is currently having a Summer Sale.
Happy Shopping and Happy Thursday!

S'more Fun with You


Hi friends! I'm here today to show you the Lawn Fawn cuteness that I'm sharing on the Quick Creations Blog. Since camping season is upon us, what better way to invite a friend on a trip than with a card that says, "Hi friend! Join me in the woods where we will sleep on rocks, twigs and dirt while we fend off mosquitoes and roaming hungry bears. But worry not, because we will have a fire were we will sing songs, eat s'mores, stare at the stars and scare ourselves half to death with stories of a masked lunatic that wields an ax and has a thirst for killing. Oh and fyi, nature is our bathroom." 
Who knew that these happy little s'mores had all that to say. hehehe.

The products used on this card are all Lawn Fawn. Unfortunately this stamp set is currently sold out at the Quick Creations Store, but you can find other great lawn fawn stamp sets that will perfect for any of your projects. Thanks for stopping by!

SUPPLIES
Stamp: Lawn Fawn - Love You S'more
Paper: Lawn Fawn - Let's Polka, Mon Amie 6x6 Paper
Craft Dies: Lawn Fawn - Large Stitched Rectangles and Say Cheese

TGF Guest Designer: Week 4




Hi friends! I'm back with a new project featuring the cute new TGF critters. Sadly this will be my last post as their guest designer for the month but I'll still be around playing with their stamp. 

Remember last weeks tag? Today I bring you the rest of the project that goes with it. Since I recently jumped on the Pocket Letter craze I created a second one, this one, using all the critters. To see my first pocket letter click here. The concept behind this idea is to encourage pen pal activity between old friends, new friends, crafty friends, all sorts of friends :) These can be as simple or as elaborate as you like and the contents of the pockets can be changed around. 

I used most of my critters to decorate my main pocket where I will add my pen pal letter. The rest of the pockets hold sequins, planner flags, bows, an about me card, some games and other things. One of my games is a tic-tac-toe card because I thought it would be fun to play an 'Across the Country/Pond Tic Tac Toe' game with Jess. It will probably take several months to finish this one game of tic tac toe but that's just something extra to look forward to ;) 

Thank you Greeting Farm for allowing me to be your guest designer. Thanks for stopping by!

TGF Guest Designer: Week 3


Hi friends, I'm back with a new project featuring the cute new TGF critters that were released earlier this month. Today, I bring you a set of tags. These tags can be used in different ways, such as birthday tags, name tags and/or to write a little note. As you see, I used one of them to create a mail tag - which is part of my project for my last week as a guest designer. Click here to see last weeks post where I used the deer for a birthday tag.

These critte are great for projects like these because you get a good amount of images to choose from. The sets featured are 'Hoppy Hello', 'Wood Friends' and 'Cuddly Thanks'. You can click on over to the greeting farm blog to check out my post along with other tips and tutorials.
Thanks for stopping by!

Sunday Crafting Time


Happy Sunday! I hope your weekend was a good one. On Sundays, I like to take some time to do a little creating/crafting (most of the time, I make it my Scrapbooking time) so here I am to share one of my 'Currently' Scrapbook Pages. I've mentioned before that this is my project life for me. I'm still playing catch up with my album so my pages that I share most likely wont be in chronological order. Today's page is about one of my 'not so good' Sundays so I used all lawn fawn product to add cheeriness and color to my page.  Although I wrote about what was ailing me on my page, I also wrote some good stuff.
That's all for now. See you back here tomorrow with another guest post for The Greeting Farm :)
Thanks for stopping by

Joining The Pocket Letter Craze


Happy Thursday! It is no longer Big Bang Theory Day but hey, I don't mind repeats.  I'm here today to provide some inspiration for the Quick Creations Blog and Shop. I'm showcasing Garden Anya from The Greeting Farm and Carta Bella/Echo Park paper. 

I joined the Pocket Letter craze and created one for you. The concept behind this is to encourage pen pal activity with a few extra goodies along with your letter. The original idea comes from Janette Lane, click HERE for tips and a tutorial. These can be as simple or as elaborate as you like and the contents of the pockets can be changed/switched out as you like. Here's my take:


I used Garden Anya as my main pocket where I will add my pen pal letter. The rest of the pockets hold sequins, planner flags, bows, an about me card, some games and other things. One of my games is a tic-tac-toe card because I thought it would be fun to play an 'Across the Country/Pond Tic Tac Toe' game. It will probably take several months to finish this one game of tic tac toe but that's just something extra to look forward to ;) 
That's all for now. Thanks for stopping by!
