myStampBOX: Going Wild!

It's a two-post kind of day! I got a little wild with my stamps from myStampBOX and had some fun on this Animal Kingdom layout. Pop over to the mSB blog for all the details!

Scrappin' Sports Stuff: Slippery When Wet

It's just about time for our neighborhood pool to open, and the kids can hardly stand it! We're definitely ready for some refreshment since it suddenly broke 90 degrees this week. That's Indy weather for you - rainy and 50's one week, 90 the next! Here's a layout I made with photos from our only pool day at Disney last fall. All the supplies and details are on the Scrappin' Sports Stuff blog today. Stay cool!

Quick & Easy Cards

May is jam-packed with special events, so I have been making cards like crazy! Here are a few that have come to life in the scrap cave this past week. The top card was for my pal Bethany's baby shower. I used the new Royal Flush alphabet from myStampBOX. I think it took longer for the two colors of Stickles to dry than it did to make the rest of the card! I love the vintage feel.

These little beauties win for quickest cards ever! I love how the whimsical font of the Color Me - Sentiments set allow you to coordinate your message with the rest of your products. I hope you get to spend some time with your scrap goodies to create cards and gifts for the people who are special in your life. Happy stamping!

Farmer's Market Tote

It's that time of year again! Last summer my pal Cheryl introduced me to the art and thrill of the local farmer's market, and most of them are open again for the season. She has an awesome shop on Etsy called Purple Bow Crafts which features hand-knit items like this beautiful farmer's market tote. I can't wait to get out there to sort through fresh fruits and veggies then stock up on meats and other local ingredients. Handmade crafts + homegrown foods = happy me!

Scrappin' Sports Stuff: Blessing

It's my day to share on the Scrappin' Sports Stuff blog. I love that Kathy stocks lots of non-sports supplies for other types of family events. Here are the photos from Ian's first day as an acolyte at our church. How special! Check out the blog post for supplies and instructions.

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to everyone! We all know special women who care for us whether or not they are actually our mothers, and today is a day to honor all of them. Be sure to tell someone you love how important she is! Here's a quick and easy card I made using the Straightforward myStampBOX sentiments.

Here's another card I made for a special mom in my life. It's made with the Tree for All Seasons and Straightforward stamps. Have a beautiful day!

For the love of Tim.

There's one man that my husband doesn't mind me oohing and ahhing over, and that's the incredibly talented Tim Holtz. Many of my projects feature products of his, and today's are no different. Check these out over at the Scrapbook {Express}ions blog!
