April Blogging Friends Blog Hop



Hello Friends! April is here!!! Another great hop this month. This months theme is YELLOW! Anything and everything YELLOW! I had a couple ideas right away. I aways try and work with what I have on hand. A couple months ago I got the Honeycomb embossing and the hostess set Pun Intended, so i knew I wanted to create a stamp using the Happy Bee-day stamp with the cute little Bee. The second card I created I wanted to use the Sunburst Thinly {I've had this one for months and this is they first time using it}. I also used both of these in yesterdays card class...two for one deal!
I hope you enjoy the cards I created and they inspire you! 








Let's hop on over to see what Leanne has for us this month.

March Blogging Friends Blog Hop


WOW.....March is already here! February was kinda the calm before the storm....the next 3 months are going to be crazy. I know a lot of you can relate. This year we signed up our youngest for T-Ball so we will have 3 kids playing baseball this year. It's already nuts and we have only just started.  I barely have time now to craft and create...so thankful for this hop and my monthly class that keep me going:)

This month's theme for our blog hop is Sale-a-Bration. I am sharing  this super cute calendar I made. When I first saw this set I knew I had to get it. It reminded me of my BFF and I started thinking right away what I could make her with this set. I immediately made her a little desktop calendar and popped it in the mail. Since then I have made another and this one I am going to give to another good friend.  I colored both with the new watercolor pencils in the Occasions catalog. They are super easy to use and I just love the way these turned out. 

The first one is the one I made for my BFF. 


This is the one I made for the hop and will be giving it to a friend. 

Cell phone photos...sorry very poor quality!


I am hoping to reach 100 members in my Facebook group....help me by reaching this goal! Once I reach 100 members I am going to have an awesome Give-a-away!!! Join my group and stayed tuned!!!


Lets see what Jodi has created for us today!

February Blogging Friends Blog Hop



Hello Friends!!! I am so excited to be back this month and we have a guest joining us...Tami White! December was quite hectic and I was unable to pre-order any of the new goodies from the Occasions catalog so I had to skip January's hop. 

I was kinda stumped as to what I was going to do for the theme "Love". I didn't order the popular Sealed with Love Bundle {SUPER CUTE bundle by the way}. I have a couple sets that have love in them but I really wanted to do a watercolor card. I always have these "visions" in my head BUT most of the time my visions never turn out the way I want them to....like this one. I would have liked the colors to blend a little better. Out of the ones I did I liked this one the best. 

I used Shimmery white cardstock {which I LOVE} and my Aqua painters to create the background. I initially wanted more layers but it was covering up the background that I wanted to show off. I love adding little nips of ribbon and twine.

December Blogging Friends Blog Hop


I am so excited for this month! I LOVE Christmas! And we have Brian King joining us this month...SUPER EXCITING! My life cannot get any busier right now, I am sure all of you are just as busy. My older boys both have birthday's in the month of December, I am sure you've seen that mentioned before:) Plus we have other family birthdays in December and my Husbands birthday the first week of January and 2 nephews and a niece with January birthday as well. It's a busy time of year. Oh and we will have twin nieces born sometime this month as well!!!!

Okay this month I chose to do a couple super easy simple and very easy duplicatable cards. I whipped these up in no time and I am thinking I might even use them in class this weekend. Yes I haven't even designed cards for card class yet!





I hope you like my easy super simple cards. Lets see what Jodi has for us this time around.

November Blogging Friends Blog Hop




Busy crazy times going on over here! I cannot believe It's November! Not much time until Christmas and birthdays. The weather here has definitely turned over the last couple weeks, which is unusual for us here in Northern California. I just heard on the news that this is the rainiest October in like 60 years. Usually it's 100 degrees still towards the end of the month. Every year we go to the pumpkin patch it's always blistering HOT but this year it was perfect Fall weather. 

This month's theme was to create something using Lovely as a Tree stamp set....well I do not have this set! I know I must be the only Demonstrator without it! I don't even have any "tree" sets. I wasn't going to participate but then my fellow hoppers here gave me some suggestions and then I was mentally going through all my sets and remembered I have Sprinkles of Life which has that cut little tree. So BAM! I had a tree and had to get to work considering I wasn't planning on participating so therefore needed to make time to create. 

Here is what I came up with....I hope you like it!

October Blogging Friends Blog Hop


WOW!!! It's already October! I cannot believe how fast these last few months have just blown by. My Christmas to do list is slowly approaching and there is no time to get an early start on any of it. Two of my boys' birthdays are in December so it gets a little crazy around here. SO let the craziness begin!!!

This month's hop theme is anything NEW from the Holiday Catalog....since it's October I deduced to share the cards we made at last card class. I just love these little cookie cutter guys so much! And the Christmas ones are just as cute. 


This is not my card design.....I CASED this layout from Erica Cerwin at Pink Buckaroo Designs {she's one of my favorite Demos}




I cannot wait to create some scrapbook pages using this set. I have so many Halloween photos to scrapbook and these little guys will be super cute on my pages!


Now lets see what Jodi has created for us:)

September Blogging Friends Blog Hop.


WOW!!!! I can't believe its been a year since we started this Blog Hop!!! This month to help us celebrate we have a special guest....Shellie!!! Whoohooo!!! 
So this months theme will be celebration in honor of our one year birthday of doing this blog hop. My projects this month are simple {as always}, cute, and very duplicatable. I used the "lets celebrate" stamp on both my card from the Balloon Celebration set. 
I am loving the watercoloring technique right now and just made a similar card in card class last week. It's so easy. I cannot wait to start designing this months class using the halloween cookie cutter set available in the new Holiday Catalog. 
I hope you enjoy my projects this month:)

I watercolored on shimmery white cardstock
