Be Happy

Happy Memorial Day! Let’s take a moment to thank all veterans and active duty for their service. And a special thank you for all who made the ultimate sacrifice to keep us free and safe. I salute you!

I have a card that I’d like to share with you today. I actually started this on Saturday, but just couldn’t get the stamping to look right. It ended up being my ink, as I grabbed my black pigment ink and it looks great!


The stamp is from Inkadinkado and its on my list from my original May 2016 Use it or Lose it challenge. The blingy border is old Webster’s Pages trim, and the black is CTMH. This was submitted to ACOT’s Use Your Stash Challenge – ribbons and trims!

TFL! 🙂

Layout: Treasured Memories

This layout of my mom, aunt, and cousin literally just fell into place so smoothly. Its based on a sketch, and the One Word Challenge over at ACOT.

Treasured Memories

The papers are by The Paper Studio, and so is the word art stickers (The Family Heirloom Kit). The flowers are by K & Company; bling flourish is by Zva Creative; arrows are by Fancy Pants; and I used my SewEasy for the stitching. Here are some close-ups:


The layout is based on Sketchabilities Sketch #111:

I loved the misting, which I used in “Coffee Bean” by Inkadinkado; and the large circle.

I also used this layout for the One Word Challenge at ACOT. The word is “TREASURE”, and you have to use it as your title, but in any format. The Paper Studio kit had these word art stickers, which in my opinion, would be perfect for a title!

TFL! 🙂


Layout: Life is better with a Dog

I am LOVING the new Bo Bunny “Happy Tails” collection that just came out. Here is my latest layout using papers and embellishments from that very collection, featuring Ruby Mae enjoying the fresh air:

Life is better with a Dog

I paired my new papers with some Inkadinkado doggie stamps (quote, paw prints, “puppy love” phrase and doggie), and washi tape by Queen & Co:

And with my new papers and stamps, it is for ACOT’s Technique challenge – to use any stamps you want using your newest papers!

TFL! 🙂
