Grateful, Thankful, Blessed

There's always something to love about each and every month, right?  I feel like November should be at the top of everyone's list, though, because this month should be centered around Thanksgiving, Gratitude, and Love.  Whether you're grateful for time off of work, big family reunions, Friendsgivings, or a burned up turkey, there's something for everyone to feel some type of gratitude for.

Webster's Dictionary defines gratitude as: the state of being grateful : THANKFULNESS.  I want to take that a step farther and add "blessed".  As a woman of Faith, it is very important to me to include that term, too.  I am blessed.  When I sit down and journal at night, I think of things that I'm grateful for, say "thanks", and it fills my heart up with blessings and reminds me how loved I am before I even lay my head down on my pillow.

I'd like to share these three simple words with you in the form of a free printableGrab it now!

I created a very simple, but powerful, piece that you can print off and frame to remind you and yours of what we love about this month (and maybe throughout the entire year, too!)


These three words are simply laid out on a plain white background for you to print off, cut out, and frame!  (I did include the cut marks, so it'll very easily be trimmed down to an 8" x 10" size that fits a standard 8" x 10" frame!)

Here's how it looks in my living room:


I also included a secondary option that you can print in color!  I made the word "blessed" with a gold foil texture and it is stunning!


If this is too plain and simple for you, you can easily jazz it up a bit, too!  Here, I embellished my print with some fancy paper (I used my Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper) along with a little twine (Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine) and some bling (Rhinestone Basic Jewels).


I really hope you like this and that it becomes a reminder for you this Thanksgiving Season, and maybe even throughout the rest of the year!  Share pics with me on Facebook or Instagram (tag @sparkle.n.fizz) to show how you displayed your print!  Enjoy!

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
