I’m back with another post today. I’m on a roll. On this post I would like to share with you a youtube video I created showing you how I make my son’s lunch notes using my new Little Notes stamp set.
Last year I would always include a lunch note for my son and sometimes stamp a cute image and then it occurred to me that I should create a stamp set with cute images and puns to go with it and that is how Little Notes came about. When my son saw this stamp set he just loved it and was already telling me which image he wanted on what day. He even showed it off to his teacher. He just loves the little notes.
In the video I show you how quick and easy it is to make a lunch note for someone special. When you are ready to purchase your own set go ahead and click here. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!!
Good afternoon crafters! Today I actually had time to create. It’s hard when you have a one year old running around the house but I was able to whip up a super cute tag while he napped. I had popped by the simon says stamp challenge blog and saw that they had a tag challenge going on. I recently ordered some tags on etsy and so I thought this challenge was the perfect opportunity to try out those tags. My brother had asked me to make him a baby shower card so I knew the theme would be a baby one. (sorry bro, I know you asked for a card but I made a tag) I couldn’t decide what technique to use so I decided to distress my tag using a few different Tim Holtz inks. I used my Baby Love stamp set and needed a background for my giraffe. I also white heat embossed some stars on the top. I then stamped two sayings on the tag and used a banner I had cut out using my silhouette. I added some sweet dots, ribbon and some wink of stella clear glitter to finish it off. I will hopefully post a video on youtube on how I distress my tag and will add the link on this post. I will also list the supplies down below. Well thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!!

Good evening crafters! Today I want to share with you a card I made in memory of those who we lost on 9/11. To make this card I used tim holtz distress inks for the background night sky. I used My Favorite things solid skyline die and then used my Alpha me and Life recorded stamp set for the sentiment. I then added stars with my white jelly pen and added glitter with my wink of Stella pen. I really loved how the sky came out.
Thank you for stopping by!

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge
Happy Monday all! Today is the first of the month so that can only mean that we have a brand new challenge for you. Yay!!!
Ok this months challenge we would like for you to incorporate circles and dots into your project. Maybe you like making round cards or you love using enamel dots. As long as we see round its all good.
For my card I used both my “Life Recorded” stamp set (which is sold out) and “Alpha Me” stamp set to create this card. I really love the circles and dots that come in the Life Recorded stamp set and used that to create the groups of circles. I also used matching sequins. I added a velvet bow ribbon at the bottom which is a new ribbon that will be listed in the shop. I just love this ribbon and it’s so fun to use. I also forgot to mention that I used Hero Arts mini neon ink pads which I just love!
Now don’t forget to stop by the challenge blog and check out what our DT has created.

Good afternoon everyone! Today I want to share with you a card I made. This is not my typical 4.25 by 5.50 card. This one turns into a box and can easily be folded down to fit into an envelope. My cousin had sent my son a birthday card in a box and I fell in love with it. I figured I should try it out and also use my new stamp set. For the measurements of this card I turned to YouTube and found a wonderful tutorial made by Candi Mclver. I used quilted bee MME paper pad for the pattern paper. The star cutouts were made using lawn Fawns puffy star die. I also glitter embossed the big star. I then die cut the word Hello using another Lawn Fawn die and then triple embossed it using clear embossing powder (a technique I learned from Jennifer McGuire). I used my Baby Love stamp set to decorate the box. On the back of the box there is space to write . I really enjoyed making this card and I would love to make more of these. They are just too fun! Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget if you would like to purchase this stamp set you can click here to my shop.
