I Treasure You



Hello! We're enjoying some nice rainy weather today so I thought I'd pop over here and give my blog some attention.

I've got Valentine's Day on my mind right now... one of my favorite times of the year because I love pink and hearts and flowers and chocolate. And of course, love. Gotta love love! This card isn't strictly Valentine-y since it only sort of features the aforementioned Valentine's accoutrement, but it will be perfect to let someone know how much they mean to me. :)

This card features the Maggie Holmes Open Book collection, which is one of my all-time Crate Paper favorites. I covered my cardstock in lace because I love the texture so much, and I embossed polka dots on some white cardstock to make the little pocket. The sentiment slips in and out of the pocket for a fun little interactive element.

Christmas Gift Bags



My mom is a teacher and wanted to give her colleagues some pretty little presents before winter break so she enlisted me to help. I had so much fun putting them together for her! Sometimes it's more fun to make projects for other people than it is to work on my own. Somehow it feels like less pressure... which doesn't even make sense, but the point is, this was fun! As I get older, I've decided that getting little presents is almost more fun than getting big ones. I think it's the surprise element, even if it's only a little bag of candy. It's fun to open! And if it's wrapped up all pretty? That's the best!

I bought some of my favorite candies and adorable Minnie Mouse LipSmackers and made a set of hair ties for each bag. I found some darling polka dot kraft bags at the dollar spot at Target. I wish they had had more! I probably would have bought them all!

Even though I have a big table, it has been so full of projects lately that I hardly have any room to work. Haha! I made quite a mess working on these bags... but I really love having supplies within reach, even if things get a little cluttered.

Christmas gift bags

I dipped into my ribbon and twine stash and put together four unique packages.

From there, I just repeated those four designs to complete all ten presents.

To finish it off, I attached an embossed and stamped gift tag to the back of each gift, and there you have it! Brown paper packages tied up with string and all set to brighten some hardworking teachers' days. Thanks for taking a look at my project!

Eat Cake!



Here's a bright and cheerful birthday card I made using Dear Lizzy's Fine and Dandy collection... well, really it could be a card for anything because it's always a good time to eat cake.

I love those plastic glitter bows so much. I used one of my favorite floral stamps to make the background then layered some patterned paper, light pink vellum, and a die cut. A little bit of stitching adds some great texture.

And we can't forget the tiny bow banners! I used a tiny bow punch and glued the bows to pieces of thread before adhering them to the card.

Hopefully, this card will inspire someone special to enjoy a piece of cake on their special day. :)

Thanks for looking at my project!

Welcome Home



I haven't been feeling like making much lately because it's been so hot, but I recently ordered Maggie Holmes's flower dies and wanted to try them out. This die set is SO cool.

I need to "borrow" a prettier door and retake these photos, but hey, this is my front door... it's what I had on hand. ;)

To make this, I used an old wood wreath from Paper Source and wrapped it with washi tape. I adhered the cut flowers with some buttons and dots and added a message with my favorite Thickers everrrrr (if you have any of these and don't want them, please send them to me. Send them ALLLL to me). I attached a ribbon to the top, and voila! A new wreath for our front door! Hopefully, it survives!

Update from the end of December: this wreath is still going strong! Nothing has fallen off, and it still looks new!

Thanks for taking a peek!

June Stories Title Page



I think I may have chosen the least flattering photo ever for my June album title page. ;)

But I don't care... it makes me happy. There's not much better than cuddling up in bed with my little family.

I used the Maggie Holmes Confetti collection from Crate Paper for this album. I love all the birthday elements... and since I'm a June baby, it's perfect for this album. That little birdie is my favorite so I wanted to make sure to feature him right at the very beginning.

Thanks for taking a look!
