First time using the Kraft boxes, and I'm kind of in love. My boyfriend has switched to working nights for this month, and so the only time we actually spend together, despite living in the same household, has been on the weekends. I had been making chocolate embellishments to top some cupcakes for a party this weekend, and was inspired by how easy it was, so I made a little something to leave on his desk. Thinking of making some valentines ones for coworkers now, too!


Just My Style

It's been awhile since I made a post, but I have a few things backlogged that I will be posting in the next few days. :) Put for today I just want to share a quick card that I made that turned out pretty great for something so simple!

I was playing with the idea of stamping on designer paper and adding it to my original stamped image, and I think it looks pretty great! I was a little worried with how busy the paper was, but I think it came out just great.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. :)


Keeping Busy

Well I did some more stamping yesterday. I finished another birthday card for one of my February birthdays and did a thank you card for the lady who will be hosting my Norwex party next weekend.

The thank you card was actually part of a card kit that my Splitcoast Secret Elf made me for my 12 Days of Christmas swap. I wasn't too fond of the designs she suggested with her kit so I did my own take with what she had included. It worked out. I didn't mind the design so I made another set of 3 to sell. :)

Hope you've all had a good weekend. I might end up stamping a little more today.

Happy creating!


Birthday Blooms!

Well I realize it has been awhile since I last posted. Christmas was hectic, and I was in a bit of a creative slump to be completely honest. I hope everyone had a great Christmas & that you were all fortunate enough to bring in the New Year with those you love. Of course, with the New Year comes those resolutions that we can never seem to keep. I'm awful keen on sticking to mine this year. My one goal is to send out cards to all my close friends & family for their birthdays this year. I think I can keep to it, and it motivates me to keep stamping all year!

I've been debating getting the Stampin' Up! paper trimmer for awhile now, and I was so set on doing it at the end of the month. My current trimmer is just garbage now. I mean, it's probably fine other than the fact that it needs a new blade, but it was a limited edition trimmer that they no longer make blades for. My paper has been getting little paper fibers every time I use it, and finally the paper started tearing. I decided I just couldn't wait until the end of the month, so I went to Staples and got the Fiskars trimmer. Honestly, I was so happy just to have nice clean cuts, it put me right in the mood to get creative.

So I created this little gem! It's super simple, but pulled me right out of my slump.

Now I think I have one of my birthday cards done for this month. ;)

Happy Stamping!
