Project Life for January and February 2014

I wanted to share with you my Project Life pages from January and February of 2014. I just started up PL for this year for the first time and I am having a lot of fun with it. I decided, due to my crazy life style, that I would be doing 2014 by the month instead of the week. I do not take nearly enough pictures to do project life weekly, plus my life is not that interesting lol. Here are two video showing both my monthly pages for January and February 2014...

P.S. Don't Forget to 'Subscribe' on my Youtube Channel. When I hit 100 subscribers I will have a giveaway (which is REALLY soon!)

A Little Paper Smooches!

This past week I acquired my very first Paper Smooches Stamp set in WE CONNECT. Now that I have a set, I need more! Here is the card I created...

Here is the inspiration picture for this card! 

I have only stamped once since my husbands heart attack last year, and I miss it so much. I am really excited to get back into it. Here is a quick shot of the supplies I used.

TCP Tuesday - The More The Merrier Challenge :)

Hi guys,

I created this card for fun, but am going to submit it to this month's TCP Challenge, The More the Merrier. The more embellishments the merrier!! I have a ton going on in June so I wanted to get mine in early :)


I used The Cat's Pajamas: Kick some Grass. This is a 5"x5" card base.

The set is from last summer, but I never got to use it til today. I absolutely love the bunny stamps, I have almost all of them. I just need the winter ones that are currently out of stock, and then I will be caught up on my collection.

 The image is colored in Copics with Memento Black Tuxedo Ink. The paper pack I used I purchased at Joann's on clearance for $3.99 USD. Kathy Davis's Happiness pack. It is currently still on clearance at and it's a gorgeous pack. The designs are only printed on one side, but the cardstock quality is excellent. I'm so glad I grabbed it now. I also grabbed the coordinating brads and buttons from the set, as they were also 50% off. 

I paper pieced his nose, which is always by favorite part of the bunny images. The nose is so cute and adorable! I added Stickles and rhinestones to the flowers, and flower soft to the grass. I later added the felt grass using the TCP's Grass Die and kind of covered up the flower soft doing so, but it still all worked. I added Prima Flowers which I colored with my copics to matching colors.

The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. It was from the monthly ribbon collection pack from a really long time back. It was the perfect match for these papers. Finally, I added some sugar coated brads and some twine to complete the card. I most definitely piled on the embellishments.

Here is a list of what I 'piled' on lol...

Prima Flowers
Sugar Coated Brads
Flower Soft
Paper Piecing
Grass Die in Felt
Several Cardstock Layers 

I left the inside very simple so it would close properly.

This sheet was part of the pack and perfect for the inside of the card. I love the saying - Create a Life you Love. I then used another stamp from the Kick Grass set and stamped that on white across the top. 

I only just started adding insides to my cards, so this is a first. I just think the card looks so much better that way and more complete. Some of the changes you will see on my cards on a go forward are the sizes. I use to make 6"x6" cards, but they were just way too large and taking up way too much paper. I have cut down my cards to 4 1/4" x 5.5  or 5" x 5" (to accommodate larger stamps like this one).

Hope you guys like this one :)

TCP Tuesday Kiss Challange

I'm slowly digging around on blogs, SplitcoastStampers, and everywhere trying to get back in touch with card making. One of my Favorite Challenges I use to love to participate in was TCP Tuesday Challanges. 

It seems they are back, but on a monthly bases instead of weekly like they use to be. I wanted to get in on May's Challenge before the month ended. This month's TCP Tuesday Challenge is KISS. It's defined as: Clean & Simple. Design a card with clean lines, minimal elements, areas of white space and few or no embellishments.  I think the hardest part of this is the minimal elements. I just want to keep adding and adding lol.

Here is the card I came up with ...

It was extremely hard not making a ton of layers and adding in a ton of patterned papers. Over all I think it came out super cute!

  I used Copics to color the image and my Spica Pens to add a little glitter, as well as a white Highlighting Gel Pen. 

Thanks for visiting!!! 

PS: please bear with me with the blog layout. I haven't been here for so long and things kind of got wonky. I'm cleaning things up and fixing links etc...
