Transformation Thursday: Fall to Winter Layout

When you find something that works, you just have to have it in every color for every season, am I right!?  Like your favorite pair of dress slacks for work, the "little black dress" of pumps, the comfiest yoga pants---you get what I mean! 

Well, I found one of the best layout options for quick and easy cards for virtually any occasion!  And the best part is this layout showcases my favorite Designer Series Papers!  I'm sharing it with you today to show you how easy it is to take your favorite layout and transform it (ha! thus, Transformation Thursday!) into a completely different card!

Here's a view of a Fall card that was transformed into a Winter card merely by changing up the Designer Series Paper, Sentiment, and Embellishments.  Too. Easy.


See how nice this layout is and since it let's the DSP do the "heavy" work---you just pick a nice sentiment and your card is complete.  You could make a bunch of these for pretty much anything.  I love it!

Here's a closer look at the layout for you:


You can dress this layout up, you can leave it as it is---it's almost like those "little black dress" pumps...or those super comfy yoga pants!  (I did say almost!!)

Did this inspire you to try the layout out?  Share it with me when you re-create your own!

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.
