Don't Worry.....Bee Happy!

Happy Wednesday!


Today I am back with another project that showcases some awesome stamps and dies from 


I used the Nested Hexagons dies and cut out a few hexagons of different sizes and placed them onto a piece of black cardstock that I cut out using the Stitched Rounded Rectangles. Some of the hexagons were popped up with foam tape and some were adhered flat. I think that gave the card some dimension and a pretty neat look, at least in person. The camera didn't quite pick it up like I hoped. For my image, I used the Don't Worry stamp set for my sweet little bee and sentiment. I added some faux stitching with a black pen to act as a flight path of that cute little bee :)

Shopping Our Stash #262: A Stitch In Time


Hey everyone and happy Tuesday!!
It's time for a new challenge over at 

This week, challenge #262 is....
A Stitch In Time
(use stitching on your project. Sewing machine, Faux Stitching, etc.)

Here is the project that I created for this challenge:


Last month, my hubby bought me a cute little pink sewing machine. It's the perfect size for papercrafting and I was excited to actually pull it out and use it for this project. I used a straight stitch and tried to sew a straight line all around my wood patterned paper. I cut a two inch strip of polka dot paper and proceeded to try and sew a straight line around that also. Sewing straight is definitely not my thing, as you can see lol! Oh well, gives it character right? ;) I added some little scallop borders along the edges of the polka dot paper. I have had this patterned paper for about a year and a half now. I almost have the paper pad gone, so I'm feeling pretty excited about that. Once I had my papers picked out for my project, I knew which stamp I was going to use for image. I have had these faceless chickens and chickie face asst. stamps in my stash for quite a while now and can not remember when the last time I used them was. I tried to find out by looking at older blog posts but couldn't find any. I'm pretty sure it has been at least a year, probably longer since the last time I used them. After I had my image stamped and colored, I used a stitched oval die to cut it out and pop it up onto my card front with some foam tape. I used some older SU! punches for my greeting, also popped up with foam tape.

A Simple Butterfly Hello

Happy Wednesday!


Today I am back with another project that showcases some awesome stamps and dies from 


For my card, I trimmed some floral paper to cover the front of my card base. I used the Stitched Rounded Rectangles to cut out my light pink and white cardstock. I stamped some of the butterflies from the Inspire stamp set along the side of my white cardstock piece, trimmed it and attached a yellow scallop that I cut out using one of the borders from the Scallop Borders die set. I added the Hello from the Hello Dies, added some wink of stella and a few sequins to finish off the card.

Shopping Our Stash #261: You Are Matchless

Hey everyone and happy Tuesday!!
It's time for a new challenge over at 

This week, challenge #261 is....
You Are Matchless
(Create your own matchbook/matchbox)

Here is the project that I created for this challenge:


I decided to make a little matchbook that holds a piece of chocolate. I used some patterned paper that has been in my stash for over a year. The best part is, I was able to use up some of the scraps in the paper pad. I used staples to close the bottom flap of my matchbook, they are just covered up with the crochet thread. I used a word die from Pink & Main and finished off the front with some enamel dots as well as some bling. I have had the bling for a really long time, at least 2 years! 

Here is a pic of the matchbook from the top:



and a picture of it opened up:

Camp Create Day 5

Hi everyone! 
I'm back with a quick post to share the card that I created for 
Day 5 of the MFT Camp Create
I had such a great time! I can't believe Camp is done :( 


Day 5 was Background Bonanza! We used smaller stamps to create our own background/patterned paper. 


I adore these piggies in the Hog Heaven stamp set and I thought the little flowers in the set would make a perfect background. I stamped all the flowers onto my card base and then colored them in with my Copics. For the small black dots, I simply inked up the end of one of my stylus tools. I colored my images and then used the Hog Heaven dies to cut them out so that I could layer them onto one of the Zig Zag Stitched Circle Stax. I finished off my card with a little bit of faux stitching and some glossy accents to the bow and the flower centers. 


I really did have so much fun participating in Camp Create and am looking forward to another camp session next month :) 

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!

I hope you have a great crafty day!
