Throwback Thursday: Cookie-Cutter Halloween Part 1

Happy Thursday, Friends!  I hope that today finds you well and happy!  I'm pleased as punch, but that's because I got a chance to use an old set that I really didn't give myself a chance to play with when I first got it.

Have you seen the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set and the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch in the Annual Catalog?  (If you haven't seen it, you can view it online here.)  This set was carried over from last Holiday and I bought it along with the "sister" set, the Cookie-Cutter Halloween Stamp Set.  It's all just too cute and if you have this set from last year, then get excited to bust it out and use it with a few of this year's goodies!  It truly mixes so well with this year's gorgeous DSP and new stamp sets, so I think I'll incorporate this set into a few upcoming Throwback Thursday posts!

Well, here's what I made with this set for you today:


I merely stamped, colored, and punched out the little Scarecrow Man and placed him alongside the fussy-cut pumpkins from the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper onto some strips of Wood Texture Designer Series Paper that I layered to look like planks.  I made an attempt at stamping "Gather Together & Give Thanks" from the Painted Harvest Photopolymer Stamp Set using the Craft Stampin' Ink in Whisper White, but I'm not totally crazy how it turned out.  What are your thoughts?

I could see this adorable Scarecrow mixed in with giant sunflowers or all the pumpkins, who knows!  To give this card a shot here's what I used:

Drop me a line and let me know how you'd incorporate this set into this year's goodies and maybe we'll work together on a concept for next week!

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

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.

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
