TGF SSSC Release Day!

Happy Hump Day everyone!  Today The Greeting Farm is releasing two Super Secret Stamp Club (SSSC) stamps - Sage No. 010 and Lavender No. 011!  If you're unfamiliar with how SSSC works here's a little info from Rosie:

"The SSSC releases are a set of 3 SECRET stamps that are offered at a special price during the enrollment period. We just had an enrollment period a few months ago. The next enrollment period will be JUNE 1st- JUNE 5th!! When you sign up for the SSSC you will receive a set of 3 stamps at a special lower price before they hit the store!! If you miss the enrollment, the stamps show up in the store a few months later, but at a higher price. So the best deal is to sign up during the enrollment period! I’ve been a part of the SSSC since the beginning and I have LOVED each stamp!! You won’t be disappointed….believe me!"

I agree with Rosie, I too have been subscribing from day one and I have yet to be disappointed.  I hear some people aren't thrilled with the skulls in the hair of Sage and Lavender neither am I, but that's a quick fix and if you see my cards below, I pretty much covered it.  Anyhow, stop by TGF's blog to read more on it and please stop by my fellow DT members to get full details on their super cute cards!

My first card is using Sage No. 010, here, I used Mindy Terasawa's adorable kit called Believe in Yourself avail here.  And of course the ever so cute Sage available here

For my second card, I used Lavender No. 011 along with Mindy Terasawa's free kit called Spring Joy.  Made this super simple since I need to snail mail this to my niece.  Again if you noticed, I covered up the skull the same way I did with Sage's, using enamel dots!  I have TONS of them so this is helping me use them up (^_^).  You can get Mindy Terasawa's freebie here and you can get Lavender No. 011 here.

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you enjoyed my creations and can't wait to see what YOU come up with using these super cute images!  Now stop by The Greeting Farm's , Rosie's and Joni's blog for more inspiration!

Believe in Yourself by Mindy Terasawa AVAILABLE NOW!!!

Hello!  Today is the day you can purchase Mindy's Believe in Yourself kit here go now as it is 20% off this weekend!  In honor of her new kit, I decided to create a digi layout!  This layout is from my trip last fall to the UK.  My husband had some meetings there so I tagged along and make it a vacation before he started his new job.  As always I love the UK!  This is my third time visiting and I could never get tired of it.  There is so much to explore and do!  For this layout, our British friends advised us to visit the quaint town of Castle Combe!  I was so happy we did, especially since I was the only female of four men and I really didn't think they would want to go but so happy they did!  Anyhow, here's my layout...thanks for stopping by and please visit Mindy's store, she will be updating her it often!

Disclaimer:  There are a few items in this layout that is not from Mindy's kit.  The splotches and Polaroid frame is from Paislee Press, forgot which kit it's from, I basically looked through my folders and picked a few items that went well with the LO.

The Greeting Farm's Mid Month Release

Happy Sunday!  Today The Greeting Farm is releasing three adorable stamps!  Woohoo!  We are releasing Super Secret Stamp Club (SSSC) stamps Cheeky Sweet no. 008, Day Out Anya no. 009 and the super cute Amor Anya!  You can purchase these stamps here.  And before I leave you, here are some goodies I made.

This first one is a cute little goodie bag.  I used Lawn Fawn's Goodie Bag die  The paper I used is from the Best of Dear Lizzy that they sell at Michaels.  I'm not sure which line it's from...sorry about that.  I absolutely love it.  The pattern reminds me of Cath Kidtson which is one of my favorite London stores!  I buy a bag or two or three whenever I visit London (^_^)

For Day Out Anya, I used a cut file from the Silhouette store, it's a pocket gift card holder.  As you can see, it's is housing a Starbucks gift card for a special friend. 

Last but not least, Amor Anya is adorning this super cute anti-bacterial hand gel from Bath and Body.  Once again, I used my Silhouette to cut it out.  I will be giving this cutie to my dog's groomer.  I think it's the perfect gift since she's always taking him out to lunch after she grooms him and he sometimes has an accident so this will come in handy, don't you think?  LOL! (>_<) 

As always thank you for stopping by!  Please visit The Greeting Farm Blog and my fellow DT's blog to see what awesome creations they came up with!  Click on their names to get to their blogs:

Roxy's Shutterfly Book

A while back, I finally decided to create a Shutterfly book for Roxy since I didn't have one for her and I had tons on Avery.  When I received my book, I was over the moon at how it turned out!  I shared a few pics taken with my iPhone and it really didn't do it justice so I decided to share it again with the actual preview of the book from Shutterfly.  I always get my books done by Shutterfly and I have to say they never disappoint!  Check out their site and have a look at their photo books, photo decor or cards!  They have tons of great photo projects!  I will be sharing more books that I had created from them soon.  Thanks for stopping by!

Shutterfly photo books offer a variety of layouts and cover options to choose from.

New Year new Project Life Album

Hello there!  I'm here in my craft room and decided to take a break (more like procrastinate).  I am contemplating on how I will approach this year's Project Life.  2012 (which has yet to be completed and yes, I still want to complete it especially since that was Fuji's first year) was in a 12x12 format.  2013 was in a Snap Album 6x8 format and I've pretty much completed it with a few exceptions of embellies and a few journaling but for the most part, it's pretty much done.  2014, well, I've stopped once we had the flood and then couldn't completely get back into it since we left for Europe.  So I definitely want to complete last years which was in a 12x12 format!  Last year, I decided not to do a Dec Daily, I love it but to be honest, we have no kids and there really isn't a bunch of traditions I do for it to be worth it.  Altho, I'm thinking of holding an Ugly Sweater party and maybe start my Cookie Exchange again...but we'll have to see.  Dec is always so busy for me and everyone else!  Anyhow, I digress...  I've noticed when it's in a smaller format, it's so much easier for me to complete, however I love adding so much more (that could be my problem!) and more journaling...  Plus, I had to use two 6x8 binders for 2013 and I really want to stick to just one album.  Studio Calico is coming out with a 9x12 which I'm really interested in however, they haven't come out with it yet, AND I have all the inserts for the 12x12 and 6x8...what shall I do? Ugh!  

I guess I should go back to cleaning and organizing this room and figure it out while I look through all my junk...LOL!  Anyone out there have any suggestions/tips/recommendations?  I would love to hear from you and see your Project Life.

Here are some of my Project Life spread throughout the years if you need any ideas or just want to see (yes, I've posted these before but wanted to have it on one post  so you can look at now.)




As always, thanks for stopping by!
