Project of the Month: September 2018

Happy September, Friends!!  While it's always a little bittersweet to say "good-bye" to my birthday month, I welcome September with open arms!  This month is almost my favorite month, the change of season just starting and the return of Pumpkin Spice Lattes!  I'm SUCH a lover of #PSL; I think this is how I become a Gold Status Member of Starbucks.  Oops.

I decided to take that love and create a super fun card using some returning favorites; Coffee Cups Framelits and a sentiment from Wood Words Stamp Set along with the addition of some new Designer Series Paper, Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.

These items combined created such a fun #PSL card!



I didn't do any stamping on this card; other than the "Hello Friend" Sentiment; making this one of my faster cards to make.

I thought the "fallish" colors from the Share What You Love Specialty DSP was beautiful and paired very nice with Pumpkin Pie.  I also added a touch of Linen Thread tied together the "farmhouse" look I was attempting to achieve.

Now, take a look at this pumpkin I made on the front of my coffee cup!


Can you believe that I literally made this from the Coffee Cups Framelits?  Yes!!!  I cut out three of the ovals and then I turned the heart "stopper" upside down to make the stem!  It worked out perfectly!


There's the view of my assembly from the back.  You can see the heart stopper really worked out great for this pumpkin!

I had so much fun creating this card and it really didn't take a whole lot of effort at all to put it together!  And I really enjoyed creating something totally different and unique from something that had a different intended purpose.

What other uses can you see from these pieces?  Are you ready to go get yourself a PSL now?  Haha!

Until next time!

Tutorial Tuesday: Strawberry Pie

I am a little bit sad that Sale-A-Bration 2018 is coming to a close this month.  Stampin' Up! has had some amazing products to give away this year and I have seen some really creative uses for extending their life! Erica Cerwin of Pink Buckaroo Designs is no exception!  I saw her use the  Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder  and make a pie card!  It was so stinking cute, that I just had to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) it and share my interpretation with my Papercrafting Passionista Friends!  PS: The Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!!!  So you can get this adorable embossing folder with a $100 purchase (it's a part of the Blossoming Basket Bundle, which is a $100 Reward) and  the embossing folder is carrying over to the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog!  So you'll be a step ahead of the new products!  Wow! Here's what I used to make this sweet card: Supply List: Fruit Basket Bun

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! Supply List: Cardstock (I used Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, and Crumb Cake for the samples above) Check out the Coffee

Lent 2020: Days Nine-Thirteen

Hahah.  I am realllllllly good at sticking to my Daily Gratitude Posts.  {Insert Eye Roll Here}.  Well, I guess I can blame life, sicknesses, etc., but the reality is---I haven't been sticking to my Lenten Commitment of being Intentional.  But, let's forget the past and just start moving forward, right? Day Nine: Thursday was a rough day.  HJ was still sick-ish.  I started having the WORST sinus pressure.  I had a horrible headache.  I was out of ibuprofen for myself and I really didn't feel like going anywhere, despite the fact that I was beginning to get a little stir-crazy.  But, then I remembered how incredible Target Pick-Up is!  Just click, add to cart, checkout, boom.  Less than two hours later, I get a notification that my order is ready and I drive myself (and my sick kid) to a parking spot, GPS notifies Target of my arrival, and check---I have a bottle of ibuprofen and Advil Sinus meds in my hands and I'm back on my way home to my couch and snuggles withou
