Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop

** If you are looking for my post, please check below**

In this post, I am going to share a card that I made for the Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop. This month, the inspiration photo is beautiful, although I must admit that this is a color combination that I never would have thought to put together! Here is the inspiration photo:

Here is my card inspired by the photo. I used the Mehndi Medallion Mini stamp set, a sentiment from Beautiful Butterflies and the patterned paper I used is from the Green Boutique paper pad. The polkadots were originally white, but I colored them yellow to match the color scheme.

Thanks for stopping by! Off to hop and check out all of the wonderful creations! :)

Ink: New Leaf, Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI New Leaf, Aqua Mist, Green Boutique Pattern Paper

Make Lemonade!

Good Morning! Another post today! I knew when Lawn Fawn announced the addition of 7new stamp sets to their lineup a few weeks ago, my wishlist would grow quite a bit (and I was right)! I ordered 2 of their new sets right away, and I am loving both. Today's card is featuring an ADORABLE little $4 set called Make Lemonade. I just love the adorable little smiling lemons! SO cute! I also used a new release from PTI called Crackled Mini. It gives such a fun look to your projects. I can't wait to play with both of these some more.

I will be entering this card into the Simon Says stamp Challenge this week! You can find more details here.

Wish me luck... off to grocery shop with my 2 boys... I hope it doesn't cost a fortune!! LOL! Have a great day!

Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge - Trend Watch

Good Morning and Happy Saturday!! :) I ADORE my Paper Smooches stamps, and when I create with them, I wear a permanent smile. I made this card for my niece who graduated high school last week. Playing along with the current Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge, I took inspiration from the photo, and used some fun Echo Park patterned papers.

I used the Chubby Chums and Smarty Pants stamp sets for this card. One of the best things about Paper Smooches stamps is that all of the images work together! It's like having one GIANT stamp set instead of a bunch of smaller ones :)

Hope you all enjoy your day! I am off to the salon with my mom for a girls day out! So excited! :)

Thank you BERRY much!

Hello there!
Just a super quick post to share the goodies that I put together for the boys' teachers for the end of the school year. Summer break starts tomorrow! :) Inspired by something I saw on Pinterest, I ordered these cute ceramic berry baskets from Sur La Table, and filled them with Strawberry scented goodies from Bath and Body Works along with some cute strawberry shaped drink coasters. I jazzed up a little chalkboard garden stake with PTI's Strawberry Patch & Strawberry Patch Sentiments sets and coordinating dies, and sent along matching cards for each of the teachers.

I just took a super quick picture before the sun went down, as I was packing them up last night.

And here is a picture of the cards - showcased this one on my blog a few weeks back :)

That's all for now... off to get some things done on my last kid-free day until August! :)
