Decision Day


Hello and happy Tuesday, wow it has been a little over a week since my last post.  I started this post yesterday but for some reason I didn't publish it.  I had been extremely busy preparing for Baby Girl's departure and now I will be busy trying to get the house in order before she comes back for a visit!  Today I am sharing another LO for her high school album, when she announced which school she would attend.  My brother-in-law went to JMU so he was happy about her choice and came bearing gifts.  I used mostly scraps of paper, stickers, my Cameo to cut the paw prints and the Cricut Locker Talk cartridge for the pennant. Fast forward to Sunday, I am sharing a picture of the sign that I made for out trip to James Madison University to drop her off!


Thank you for your visit, wishing you and yours a great week.  I hope that I will adjust to my new norm quickly and that I am able to finish my daughter's high school album by family weekend!

Senior Thesis Presentation


Hello and happy Monday morning, more hot temps with a forecast for rain tomorrow.  I'm back today to share another completed LO for Baby Girl's high school album, she leaves for college on Sunday and of course the album won't be done!  My new goal is to have it done by family weekend in October.  This LO uses pictures taken the day she presented her senior thesis, I used misc. papers from my stash including pattern papers from the Heidi Grace Daydream paper pad, Recollections gems and some stickers. I cut the stars with the Spellbinders Nestabilities star die set and the title cut using the Formal Occasion Cricut cartridge.  I'm sharing this LO for the August Anything Goes  LTCCB #37 and Cardz TV #95.

Hello and happy Thursday, heat and the possibility of more rain in today's forecast.  I am back today with another drive by post with a card requested by my daughter when she came in last night.  She wanted a card for a male co-worker who is mourning the loss of a friend.  I used sketch inspiration from the Stick it Down August card sketch.  The pattern paper is from the DCWV Natural 12x12 paper stack, used a MS butterfly punch and a Love Nicole die for the sentiment.  I still struggle when it comes to making cards for males.

Fun Fold Card

Hello and happy Wednesday, I am doing a quick drive by post as I should be getting dressed for week.  Yesterday another one of my scrappin' besties Danita shared a double easel fold card so I decided to give it a try when I got home last night. You should visit her blog and watch the  YouTube video that we used for inspiration.  Our graduation season is almost over, this card is going postal to Ohio and we have just one more trunk party next week before Baby Girl leaves.  The pattern paper is from The Paper Studio and the cap is. a Jolee sticker, because the paper is so busy. I decided not to add any additional embellishments, the inside includes a personal note and gift card.  I am sharing this card for the Anything Goes challenge #95 over at Cardz TV.

Thank you for your visit hurry back soon!

Hello and happy Friday, more seasonal temps in the forecast for our area.  Today I am sharing my latest design project for the Cut it Up challenge blog.  The theme for challenge #178 is Christmas in July and our sponsor is Scrappy Dew.

As much I as I try to step out of my comfort zone it seems as though I can't get away from my clean and simple style of crafting.  When putting this card together, I used the Christmas flower from the sponsor, cut the flower, inked the edges, assembled the layers and added a little glimmer to the center of the flower which is barely visible in the picture.  I used papers from my scrap stash, added the flower with some dimensional adhesive, stamped the sentiment and this card was done!

Last 2 Standing


Wow, where does the time go?  The days seem to go by so fast, so much to do and so little time! Today I am sharing another LO for Baby Girl's high school album, I won't make my goal of having the album completed for her trunk party; maybe by the time she leaves for school next month.  This picture was taken during the culminating event for the Young Adult Police Commissioners, they started out with seventeen students and for whatever reason the year ended with just these two!  The pattern piece of paper  and brads came from the DCWV high school  line, The lettering and wood veneer pieces have been in my stash for a long time and I used the Creative Memories This & That Cricut cartridge to cut the arrow.  I am sharing this project for the Anything Goes challenge #118 over at Always Fun challenges and Cardz TV #93.

Classmates


Hello and happy sunny Tuesday!  Six days and counting; it's all about Baby Girl so today I'm sharing another LO that I put together for her album. This was fairly easy since I used a base sheet from the DCWV High School stack I only added a class picture, some lettering, a punch for the pennant/flags and the year.  I needed to add a splash of color so I pulled some blue glitter paper from my scrap stash and it was done.  The picture was taken during the senior class spirit week where they took a photo and the front steps of the school.  I used the cricut cartridge Nate's ABCs for the lettering and numbers. 

Take care and have a terrific Tuesday.

Senior


Hello and happy Tuesday, cloudy/rain and cooler temps in our area today.  I'm doing a drive by post to share my latest LO which I completed at Saturday's crop.  I am so far behind that I doubt I'll have my daughter's book done by the end of the summer!  Today's LO is super simple and it uses one of the pictures taken during a photo session for some of her senior portraits.  The base pattern paper came from the DCWV Teenage Dream 12x12 paper stack, and the title was cut using my Silhouette Cameo.  I used stickers, a doily, die cuts and a torn sheet from an old book as embellishments.  I am sharing this LO for the anything goes challenge #89 over at Cardz TV.

Teacher Appreciation


Hello and happy Friday, mild temps in the forecast for our area today.  It's Friday and I'm here to share a last minute card that I had to mass produce for my daughter.  She is in her last year of high school and for some reason decided that she wanted to do something for her teachers so I made a this card after looking on the internet for quick and simple ideas!  I literally took the picture as we were trying to get out the door after she asked me to write the note on the inside of the cards so it looks a little blurred.  I used a Darice embossing folder, the pencil is a cut from the Nate's ABCs Cricut cartridge and the sentiment is from the Cricut Sampler cartridge.  I thought about adding some stars but since I had to put these together without any help from my daughter I kept it simple!  This week we have recognized; police, nurses and teachers and we are thankful for the important work that they do!  I'm sharing this card for the anything goes challenge #89 over at Cardz TV.

Thank you for your visit, wishing you a wonderful weekend as most will celebrate mothers and college graduates.

Hello and happy Thursday, sunny skies in our area after a rain storm yesterday.  Today's project share is a coffee/tea themed Mother's Day card created using sketch inspiration from the May sketch challenge #419 over at Die Cuttin' Divas.  I used papers from the Shimelle True Stories 6x6 paper pad, dies to cut the square and circle and the A Child's Year Cricut cartridge for the cup; finished the card by adding a few C.C. Designs enamel dots.   I am sharing this card for the May Anything Goes  challenge #34 over at Love to Craft. and the Spring/Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop over at Coffee Loving Cardmakers where you'll find lots of great inspiration!

Thank you for your visit, I hope you'll return soon.

Super Sweet


Hello Sunday and happy Cinco de Mayo!  It has been raining since last night so that means less outside time today as the rain continues and the possibility of a storm.   I didn't get to play for National Scrapbooking day yesterday so I got up early this morning and decided to play before getting ready for church.  Today's card share uses sketch inspiration from Tuesday Morning Sketches #501, paper from the Ki Memories 6x6 paper pad, a Studio G cupcake stamp (colored with color pencils) and some Queen & Co Jellies.  I am sharing this card for the Hello Cupcake challenge #394 over at Shopping Our Stash and the Anything Goes challenge #88 over at Cardz TV.

Thank you for your visit, enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Hello and happy Friday more warm temps in today's forecast.  I am back today to share my latest design team project for the Cut It Up challenge blog.  The theme for challenge #173 is Mother's Day and our sponsor is Lawn Fawn.

Wednesday Wanderings


Hello and happy Wednesday, warm temps in our area today.  I have been so busy that I haven't had time to share, but I wanted to stop in today to share a little update on some things that I have been working on, I have so many pictures that I need to scrap but I just haven't had the time and I'm not sure when I will have the time!  Today I am sharing a little picture collage of what happened today,  this morning our daughter presented her senior thesis and it was also decision day for the seniors. Monday night I had to make sure she had stuff to decorate her locker (pictured)  and last night/this morning I made a photo booth and props for their decision day pictures.  We have just forty more days until graduation!

Thank you for your visit, please come again soon.

Mother's Day Card


Hello and happy cloudy Friday, rain, wind and storms in today's forecast.  I'm doing a quick driveby post to share a Mother's Day card that I created using sketch inspiration from Sketch N Scrap card sketch #144.  I'm having a hard time creating right now so I just decided to sort  through some of my stash  and I put this card together;  the pattern papers came from the Pebbles Garden Party 6x6 paper pad and the flowers are from Prima and Paper Studio.  I'm sharing this card for the Cardz TV Anything Goes challenge #88. 

Thank you for your visit, wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend.
