The Weirdness Exposed LOL!

    I was going to crop this picture so that you could see Sam and I better but you know what, leaving it the way it is tells so much more of this story!  I am betting that CTMH staff inside were taking photos of us taking photos.  That's how crazy we got with it!

    I'm sure they have people get giddy and take a few pics, but do they ever have two girls running and shrieking across the front lawn where they hug and snap picture after picture?  All over a building? LOL!  Actually maybe they do! I know Sam and I aren't the only ones who are in love with this company to that extent!

    So to take this photo I had to place my camera on a VERY unstable boulder right above this neat little pond/fountain they have out front of the sign.  Meanwhile thinking the entire time that I'm going to sacrifice my camera for this one photo! (Totally ok with that as long as the memory card saves the stinking picture! HAHAHA!)  So I set the 10 sec timer and bolt back over to my side of the sign and then we wait a few extra seconds wondering if it worked before we run back over to check it out.  Then you see us jumping up and down because we realize that we have indeed caught said moment!  Pure joy!  LOL!  Even though it's not centered, it's still a great photo worthy of our craziness to get :)

Custom Fashionista Layout :)

     I will be the first to admit that I saw the Fashionista stamp set and didn't think I'd have much use for it....but you know what things change!  I am doing a gathering for a group of girls who were in a recent runway show here in Rock Springs and I got to thinking, "what would these girls want to scrap?"  And thus....this layout was born!  Their theme this year was a circus theme and this was what I went off of to create!

     So yes, just cause you see a stamp set in the Idea Book that you don't think you'll like, doesn't mean you won't when you find the perfect use for it!  I now have MANY ideas for that set and couldn't be happier about purchasing it! LOL!

Buzz & Bumble w/ For Always Mojo Monday/Color My Heart Entry!

I finally made myself sit down and create another card to enter for the Mojo Monday blog!  I'm also entering it in the Color My Heart Challenge!  I love that everything with Close To My Heart coordinates so well!  I was able to mix papers from the Buzz & Bumble collection with the For Always collection and they look like they belong together!  Makes it so easy!  You can check out these paper packs here.  I created this card to give to Haley's teacher, she's due in June with a baby boy :)

Here's my take on their sketch!  Feel free to leave me any comments or suggestions!

Here's the sketch for this week!


I used one of the stamp sets included with the Cricut Artiste cartridge to do the pretty 3D spiral and the sentiment!  I also used a variety of embellishments including the Foundry Pin Clips, Licorice Opaques Adhesive Gems, the Black Tulle, and the wooden flourishes from the Mini Medley Accents Wooden Collection!  Keep your fingers crossed for me!  I'd love to win just once :)

I got a little bit of time today in to put together a layout using the March Stamp of the Month!  (My camera has issues for some reason lately so I hope that photo has turned out ok!)  Isn't it cute?!  I love how the flowers add that little touch of elegance and just make it a little more girly!  Here's the stamps you get in this cute set!

I absolutely love the Canvas Buttons and they have sadly been retired.  :(  But no tears!  They are on Clearance right now on my site!  You can go check them out by clicking here!

These little keychains were created for the Rock Springs Tigers JV Cheer Team :)  I thought they turned out so cute!  A great use of CTMH products with other materials!

Later Sk8r Girly meets Manly Layout

The new 2013 Spring/Summer Idea Book seems like it was made with  me in mind and Later Sk8r is one of the new paper packs that I fell in love with at first sight!!!   It has diamond plate patterned paper need I say more? LOL!  To top it all off, the Later Sk8r Workshop On The Go's exclusive stamp set has a diamond plate stamp on it!  Notice it's use in this layout ;)

I've had these pictures of my youngest daughter helping her dad laying in a photo box for a couple years now just waiting for the right paper/inspiration....and the minute I saw Later Sk8r I knew this was it!!   So I set out to add just a smidge of girlyness to this super cute paper, and I think that I did just that!

There are Hollyhock roses mixed with gears and just enough sparkle.  I used the Hollyhock pigment ink from the Adventure set to stamp the small circles underneath the patterned paper and then added Liquid Glass to a few of the dots for dimension!  If you look at the gears I used Liquid Glass to enhance them as well!  I could never get sick of that stuff, it's so addicting to use!

 The title was created using a mix of the Posterboard Alphabet and the Token Alphabet!  A great example of how you can get more bang for your buck by mixing sets!  The felt set is retired now dang it, I loved that set!  But at least I'm getting it used up!  Big step for me!


These roses are SO easy to create!  I wanted a white inside on purpose so these particular ones were stamped from the Spring Up set (retired) and then curled but you can get the same basic look (with even more flower options) with cuts from both Cricut Cartridges!  Using the new Quilling Tool makes these flowers curl in no time flat!!  My daughter was helping me curl them today!  So if a 5 year old can do it than anyone can!

I'm very happy with how this layout turned out and I hope it inspires you to look at each paper pack for it's potential!
