A Day at the Beach



Create Along With Us: July 2017

Hello there! I chose this card by Nichole from Papertrey Ink . 
I tried recreating her card with products I already had,
 but I can't wait for the mailman to deliver this to my door!




This was so fun to make! I blended the ink on the palm trees and last minute added a bit of sky!
For my circle I used Memory box Pinpoint Circle Frame.
 Papertrey Ink : Petite Places: Happy Camper and Petite Places:
Nativity Scene It Bethlehem ( for the palm trees)

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great week!

HAPPY 4 TH of JULY!



Hello!  Just wanted to pop in and post something for the fourth.  I made sure I only used red,
 white and blue on my card! Lets kinda pretend the red plant stems are fireworks :)

I used the new Make It Market Mini Kit: Herb Garden , an older sentiment I had from:
 Operation Write Home fundraising.
PPP-Stitched Notes Dies from Serendipity Stamps .

I always start my blending with a soft brush then go over with the sponge dabber,
 it seems to help keep it more even .

Hugs and God bless !

Two Cards Using the New Market Street Kit



 with :Lizzie Lizzie made one beautiful stamped wreath
my was made kinda fast and a bit messy. I added some
Nuvo drops to try and help balance it out. The side panel was stenciled using the kit.


On the card above, I used only images from the new: Make It Market Kit: Market Street for the wreath. 
The sentiment is:Pen & Ink Stamp Set.


 Hi there! I ordered my Make It Market Kit: Market Street
kinda late as I was not sure! I loved most of what was in the 
kit but not all! It came yesterday and I am so glad my sweet husband encouraged me to buy it! I love it!





For the card above, I stenciled the awning . When I received my kit I wanted to make a simple and fast card..... The cart and apples were cut with dies and patterned paper that came in the kit! I embellished the apples with a Copic marker and Glossy Accents. Love the texture the watercolor paper gives this simple card! I will add a sentiment when I decide what to use it for.

Thank you so much for the visit! 

Hope you have a great weekend!!

The rivers and falls in Yosemite were amazing!

June Papertrey Ink Hop


June 2017 Blog Hop

This is the inspiration photo!
Hello and good day to you all!

CAS(E) this Sketch #227



I used Memory box; Pinpoint Single Frame 99757 for the inside frame. I added fun foam to raise the outside of the frame. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink :Still Life summer, and the blooms are :Vintage Linens also from Papertrey Ink ! I made this, this morning. 

Little tip: Don't one-handedly lift a heavy coffee table by yourself to add felt pads to the legs ( especially before vacation) !!! I have never felt this kind of pain before. 

God bless you!

Edited to add this card for 
with Lexi and Inspired by THIS CARD of Nancy!
