Crate Paper: Let's Get Started!


I am SO excited to officially announce that I have been invited to be a part of the 2014 Crate Paper design team!!!! I feel so lucky to be a part of Crate Paper's amazing team! My year ahead as a CP Gal is gonna rock!


I'm not a stranger to their products so jumping in to design for them is a perfect fit and I'm thrilled that they asked me to be on board!  

So I had to make a card to celebrate the kick off of this awesome design team.


I layered a lot of accent pieces from the new Maggie Holmes line, Style Board. The touches of gold in this line are amazing! The cork keeps it funky and has great texture. :) The sentiment was stamped from Lawn Fawn's Love You Tons.


Thanks for stopping by today and sharing in my excitment!

JFF Sunday: A Camper Card

Hi Everyone! I have a card to share just for fun today! 


I recently put together a Pinterest board to follow the outdoors trend. You can see it HERE. I created this card as I was putting together the board. I LOVE this camper found in the Dear Lizzy Polka Dot collection. The whole card was built around the camper. The Paper Smooches sentiment was the perfect fit. I finished the card by picking colors and embellishments to compliment the camper. :)

Thanks for stopping by today!

Paper Smooches: Forever and Ever

Hi Everyone! Paper Smooches has some super cool word dies. I love the new Always and Forever dies!



On this card I chose to die cut "forever" twice and then snip off the first part of the word on the second cut to get a new sentiment. :)

This card will be perfect for Valentine's day or even an upcoming wedding! I also want to point out how cute the new heart die fits in the stitched heart from Needle Little Love. The hearts are not exactly the same shape but I love how they work together!

Thanks for stopping by today!
