February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog and the February SOTM Blog Hop!  This is also the first day to order from the fabulous Spring/Summer Idea Book.  If you have come from Jen's blog, you are on the right track.  There are over 50 consultants participating in this hop.  If you get lost along the way, Melinda has the complete list.

I am always in need of cute little 3x3 cards for gift inserts, thank yous and so forth.  Just a little note to say hello.  So here are a sampling of how I used the February Stamp of the Month, (S1402) Wild About Love to make 3x3 cards.  The stump is popped up, so the fox can peek out from behind.  
I also made a standard sized card to show you today.  These stamps make darling Valentines, but you can do so much more with it.  Two of the stamps are also compatible with the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge.

The pattern for this card came straight out of  Make It From Your Heart, Vol.2 available in the new Spring/Summer Idea Book.

Skylark Paper Pack, Saddle and Sweet Leaf Inks, Aqua Dots and Hemp Baker's Twine from the Wooden Mini Medley Collection.

Now hop on over to Kami's Blog to see what she has created for you.  Enjoy!

More Cloud 9

If you are like me, you don't want to see one piece of paper go to waste.  Here are a couple of cards I made today using the leftovers of the Cloud Nine Card Kit. There is more paper left: some card stock and a bit of the patterned paper.  I will use that too, don't worry.  Also included in this kit are THREE FULL PACKS of embellishments.  So I have a lot of Gold Polkadot Washi Tape, Lagoon Shimmer Trim and Triangle Studs to use on future projects.  What a great value!  And of course I have this cute stamp set to use over and over again.  So here are two cards made with sparkle and bright colors for what appears to be the coldest day here in a long time.

Stay warm,

Hip Pics Album Kit

I ended up taking a unplanned absence in December, but I'm back and hoping I can get everyone motivated for the new year!  Can you believe it is 2014?  Oh, My, Goodness.  Let's all get out there and live a little!  Craft, create and make sure you smile every single day.
 I am a little late in sharing this album with you.  This was available in the Holidays From the Heart Gift Guide.  This is one of those "smile" moments for me, so I wanted to share
 It was really easy to do.  Everything you see here was included except the inks.  And pictures of course.
 Now I have a little book of my daughter's family with pictures of Jack just a day old.  They grow fast, don't they.
 I hope there are other small albums offered in the upcoming catalogs and gift guides.  If you need inspiration on putting yours together, I hope I could help.  These are special moments to treasure.
Wishing you health and happiness in the coming year.  Enjoy those "moments"!
