Simple Saturday: White Statement

Today's card was so fast to whip up!  And while it's very simple, the full-white card allows the stamped sentiment the chance to really make a statement.  I am pleased!

Because of the minimal supplies this card takes, I think it's a fabulous way to use what you have on hand and add in just one new item from the Holiday Catalog---the Painted Harvest Photopolymer Stamp Set.


It's hard to tell, but the top layer is run through the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder and the stamped statement from the Painted Harvest Photopolymer Stamp Set is simply punched out using the 2" Circle Punch.  

Those leaves!  It added enough embellishment, without detracting from the cleanliness of the card.  These leaves are also from the Painted Harvest Photopolymer Stamp Set, and are a two-step stamp.  This means, you stamp one image and layer the second on top to add some dimension and detail, without a lot of effort.  Now, I did fussy-cut my leaves, but the Painted Harvest Bundle comes with the the Leaf Punch that would have saved me tons of time, because I could have just simply punched them out.  But, alas, it wasn't too bad; the card still came together really quickly.

I hope the cleanliness inspires you to try your hand at making something understated that makes a statement.  Share with me what you come up with!

Happy Long Weekend, Friends!

Tutorial Tuesday: VIA Coffee Holder

Are you following me on Pinterest yet??  If not, please do!  There's a bunch of amazing goodness there!  One of which, is an extremely popular pin---my VIA Coffee Holder.

I enjoy trying new things and one day, while wondering the aisles of my local Target, I stumbled upon these new little packages of coffee, called "VIA".  It's by Starbucks and they are instant coffee singles.  Whhaaat!!?  Naturally, (because I'm a victim of marketing) I bought some.  Then I thought, These are so cute!  I want to do something with them and my Coffee Cafe Suite!  After that, my VIA Coffee Holder/Folder (whatever you want to call it) was born.


I imagine you can see why this is not just my most re-pinned pin, but it's pretty popular on Pinterest, in general.  Woot!

Now, my friends, I will show you how to make your own with my Tutorial Tuesday!

Tip Tuesday: The Eyes Have It!

Did you know that when it comes to creating a stunning look with cosmetics, your eye shape has quite a lot to do with that?  It's true!  Take myself, for example.  I am one of the blessed individuals with a Monolid eye shape (thanks, genetics) so many of the gorgeous shimmery "peekaboo" looks for eyes with visible creases (which is all the rest of you folks!) I cannot easily achieve.  *Sigh*.

And just like clothing, one size and one style does not fit all!  (I could never wear a romper, my short little torso just can't handle that!)  So, today's Tip Tuesday is all about learning how to identify your eye shape and some cosmetic tips for applying your make-up to bring out the best for your eyes!

Let's get started with a couple tips to check out your eyes:

Use a good mirror---a handheld is good, a stand-up is better, and a stand-up magnifying mirror is best!Lights, please!  Artificial lighting is fine, provided you have a clear view of your eye, there's no gl…

Podcast Episode 4: Accountability

How many of you feel like you're on a never-ending hamster wheel, just running and running and running?  Do you blame the wheel for moving too fast or too slow?  Do you blame the cage for not having any space?  Or do you figure out that you need to stop, get off the wheel and get out of the cage to endless space?

I think we all have those seasons in our lives where we easily blame the wheel or the cage.  And the difference between staying on the wheel and blaming it for staying on it and stopping, getting off and getting OUT is our ability to take accountability.

Take a listen to this week's podcast and let me know if it inspires you to stop running on the wheel and instead, figure out how to stop, get off the wheel, and get out of the cage.
