Die Cut Hello...

I've been playing with my Cameo again.  I found this adorable Hello file in the Silhouette store.

I used a fun little arrow image from PTI's  Live Love Life.  I just randomly stamped the image in different colors and then popped the die cut up on foam tape.  Super simple!

It's a lazy Sunday around here.  Thinking about have Q'Doba for lunch!  Sound good?  Yeah...it's my favorite around here.  We don't have a Chipotle so I can settle!  lol!  :)

Thanks for stopping in!

Embrace Life...

I am so happy to be back to crafting today!  Someone came home....


She's all back to new and working fabulously!  I missed her!  

So I asked on Facebook recently about what paper worked the best in the Cameo.  There were lots of votes for Neenah Solar White.  So I jumped over to Ellen Hutson and had a whole ream here in about 4 days.  So, I've been playing around today with some Silhouette cuts and I made this....

This cut is for PL but I though it would make a fun card.  With NO stamps!

Hope everyone is doing well!  I am super happy to be back from a fun but busy blogging break.  I have some fun stuff coming up to share soon! :)

Don't forget about my Card Hanger Dies.  I have them all in stock again and ready to ship out to you!  You can purchase them on my side bar.

AND....don't forget about the 15% off code "SOAPBOX", to Organize More.  Lot of fun organizing stuff to choose form.  You can see my original post here with a product review.

Thanks for stopping in!

have to send out a HUGE thank you for the amazing comments from my last post!  Each one of them made me smile!  I have a quick card for you today that I made back before my blogging break....and then the winners!  :)

I used PTI's Mini Blooms for the background all in white.  I had some questions about the WPlus9 White ink....I have to say its my favorite white so far and I have tried several!  I added in a touch of color with the paper strip and then a sentiment and a pearl!  :)

Here are the winners of the card hanger dies....

6 years, a Discount Code and a Giveaway!

Hey there blogging friends!  Guess what?  Today is my blogs 6 year old birthday!  My blog is 6.  WHAT?  How did all this funness fly by so fast?  It has been amazing to meet so many blogging friends and work with so many fun companies.  I appreciate every visit and comment and am just tickled to be a part of such a great community!   So this post has lots of info.  So hang in there with me! I have a product review with a coupon code you will NOT want to miss and then a couple giveaways!

So I have a card that I made quite awhile back to share....I haven't made anything in quite some time.  I have been a full time mom for sure.  T-ball games, swimming, machine pitch, swimming, swimming lessons, swimming, VBS, swimming...did I mention swimming?  :)  I have permanent water in my ears for sure.  But it has been SO much fun!  My oldest is jumping off the diving board, which I was SURE would never happen!  My youngest is actually walking around in the 3 feet, which I assumed he would be clinging to me for dear life until he was 20 ish.  So it's been a good summer so far!

OK, so enough babbling.  On to the card....

A super simple birthday card today!  I used Neat and Tangled's On the strip for the background stripes.  I used Wplus9's White ink....love!  The sentiment is from Bountiful Banners from PTI.  I added some Enamel Dots and a little chipboard banner that I can't remember where it came from!  :)  Super simple!

PRODUCT REVIEW

OK, now on to some more fun stuff.  Recently, I got a ink stamp organizer from Organize More.  Have you been over there?  So much organizing goodness!  I have a little review today in the form of a video!  And another cool thing?  I have a 15% off discount code for you to use on anything in the store!

Check out the Pro Ink Organizer...



Another couple points I wished I had put in the video....this shelf is very light, which makes it perfect for the wall.  There is 2 saw tooth hangers on the back making it really easy to hang.  It stands perfectly on the dest top too!

So head over to Organize More and pick up something fun today!  If you are like me, you love to have everything organized...this is the place for you!  The code for your 15% off is "SOAPBOX".

A fun little extra for the scalloped die is that it doubles as a edger die!  I used the same scalloped card hanger die cut to embellish the bottom of the die!  :)
