Favorites of 2011

Hi Everyone! I thought it would be fun to look through my cards of 2011 and post my favorites. Most of them have been shared throughout the year but there are a few that never made it to the blog. Happy New Year!

A Flowery Thank You

Hi Everyone! Hope you are enjoying the holidays! Today I used my new Rosie Posie stamp set from Papertrey Ink. When I came across Lucy's sketch earlier today I knew it was a perfect match so I decided to join in her challenge. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler.


Have a great day! Thanks for the fun sketch Lucy!

Let it Snow

Hi Everyone! Today I'm sharing my last Christmas card of the season. It also completes my little mini series using the same sketch and same stamp set. The featured image is the snowman from Tremendous Treats: Christmas. I also used the fun snowflake image to create the background on the blue panel. The background is on of my favorites Grid Background.


Have a great day!

Silver Bells

Hi Everyone! Just a few more cards to share in my little holiday series. Today's card features the bell stamp from Tremendous Treats: Christmas. I love this bright and fun color combination. Its one I'll have to write down to use again later. :) I chose my twine first (Maraschino, Lilac and Lemon Drop) and then colored the bows with a close matching Copic maker. 


One more Christmas card tomorrow!

Christmas Mittens

Hi Everyone! I'm back again today to share another card in my mini Christmas card series. In case you are just tuning in I'm using the sketch of this card and Papertrey Ink's Tremendous Treats: Christmas to finish off my Christmas cards.


Today's card features the mittens from the set along with Hero Art's Circle Lace stamp. I have a few more cards to share so I hope you'll join me the rest of the week as I complete this series.

Penguin Christmas

Hi! I've decided to finish my Christmas cards by following the sketch I created for my last card HERE. By using the same layout (with just a few changes on each card) I am finishing my Christmas cards quickly and without any stress! Ya! Also, to keep things simple and fun my main focal image in each card will come from Tremendous Treats: Christmas.


The two penguins on this card were created by stamping the original image for one of the penguins (purple penguin) then stamping it again, cutting off the tails of the scarf and adding it to the other side (blue penguin). The background is from Lawn Fawn's Teeny Tiny Backgrounds and the twine is Stone from The Twinery.

Reindeer Christmas

Hi Everyone! Tremendous Treats is one of the cutest Christmas sets I have EVER seen. In this card I paired the reindeer stamp up with Hero Art's Graph Background. I finished the card with a colored rhinestone and some twine.


Hope you are enjoying the holiday season. It seems to be going faster than ever this year! I'll leave you with a picture of my kids with Santa. Evantide Photography took this awesome picture. Love them!

Birthday Dreams

Hi Everyone! I'm finding myself using some of my older stamps now that PTI has come out with their new inks. Love using familar colors. For this card I used Papertrey Ink's Enjoy the Ride and Ad Sense.


Have a great day!

Silhouette Advent

I am so excited to share my completed advent calendar. It took me a LONG time to finish it but I'm happy with the end results and can't wait to enjoy each day opening a box with my kids!


I used lots of My Minds Eye paper, Papertrey Ink stamps and dies and some beautiful twine from the Twinery to create my project. I always loved wrapping presents when I was younger and it felt like each little advent box was a chance to decorate a small gift. I plan to put candy, activities and fun surprises in each box (yes, I know I'm a few days late but I think the kids will be okay with year ;) )


I think my favorite box is #9. Lots of layers, lots of fun! I also like box #18. It was one of those things where I had an idea and it worked the first time! Woohoo!

What Christmas projects are you working on this year? I would love to see them!

Clothesline Congratulations

Hi Everyone! Today's card has a fun combination of stamps (and companies)! I used Banner Builder from PTI, Kiss from the Sun from Hero Arts, Sentiment Sampler from Paper Smooches and a digital cloud background from this Hero Arts DigiKit.



Hope you are enjoying your weekend! Mine has been busy with lots of holiday activities including a Christmas Party at the Space Needle and a trip to see Santa!
