August Coach Collective

It is the first of the month and that means it is time for our amazing Coach Collective! This month the projects are so unique by being Shape Cards!

Christmas in July

Hello friends! Happy Friday. I hope that you have had an excellent week. I cannot believe that we are already at the end of July! In case you are counting there are only 22 more Fridays before Christmas. Yikes! It might be time to start thinking about Christmas Cards.

This card was one of the designs that we created during the recent FSJ Live event, however I made my own twist on it. Instead of pink ribbon and a pink deer I swapped out Oatmeal Cookie card stock and the White Organza Ribbon. I really love how it turned out. What do you think?

Thanks so much for coming by today. Our Holiday Catalog will be available in just a few days and I would love to get a copy in your hands. Just send me an email and I will get one out to you! Hugs and happy crafting.

Product List

Hello crafters! Today I am so excited to share with you a sneak peek of a atamp set that will be available beginning next week with the launch of our Spring into Summer catalog from Fun Stamper Journey. This card is playing along with the fun challenge over at Stamp, Ink, Paper as well.

The patterned paper background is from the Spring Filled Prints collection from the Bloom this Way catalog.  The clouds are cut out with our cloud dies and then Whip Cream Silks were added to give them some texture. The main image & sentiment are from the Blue Skies stamp set which will be in the upcoming Sping into Summer mini catalog that releases on April 1st. I would love to get one to you, just send a message with your address! You can find all of the current supplies to make this project at my store.

April Mystery Challenge – SSInk

Hello again friends! The fine folks over at SSInk have a fantastic mystery challenge for us this month. I hope you will also play along!
 And here is my card:


As you can see I was able to incorporate quite a few elements from the challenge this month. We of course have the wonderful flowers from the Botanical Bloom bundle, we have the 3 colors of Daffodil, Espresso and Mossy Meadow. We also have more than 3 layers, including 1 layer of vellum. With the “for you” sentiment it could also easily be given for Mother’s Day.
Close up of the flower layers.
I spoiled myself with the purchase of the bundles when I found out it would be returning in next years catalog. This is the first time I have used it and I had to restrain myself from cutting out flowers in all the colors. Oh how I am going to love this set!!
You may notice a new watermark on these photos. After much prayer and consideration I will be changing the name of my blog, Instagram, Facebook business page and all online/social media accounts to be something that is a little more in line with my personality and real life. While I am a diva when it comes to my stamps, I am really a jeans and tee shirt kind of gal who loves Jesus and I want that to be my focus.
Be watching for the changes to happen over the next few weeks. I am very excited about the direction my life and business is going!
I am so glad that you stopped by today.  You can subscribe to my blog on the right and never miss another post. I
love blog love in the form of a comment, so please let me know what you
think of this project!
