November Project of the Month: Name Card

Can you believe that we have made it to November?  These last couple of weeks have been nothing short of a whirlwind of activity for myself---and I think it's just about to get busier!  Eek! 

Now that being said, November is such a fun month.  It's a time of gratitude and reflection and it's also the month of Thanksgiving.  Now that the kids' birthday party is over, it's time to move onto my next event plan!  I love hosting events; Thanksgiving dinner is certainly no exception!  And it doesn't have to fancy at all!  Sometimes, just the simplest of decorations is really all you need.  Such as this pretty little Name Card, to give all your guests an extra special "warm-fuzzy" when they're seated at the dinner table.


It really took next to no time at all, but yet, it's elegant, a little rustic, and a little "winter-y" for my Winter Loving Friends! 

Don't you just fall head over heels for this Buffalo Check Background Stamp?  Pair that with the Stamparatus and you can stamp out a ton of these background images in a flash!  Plus, the Winter Woods Stamp Set has the most beautiful looking pine cones and pine branches to give it a fall/winter feel.  And the coordinating In the Woods Framelits has multiple pine cone and branch dies so you can stamp and die-cut multiples in one pass!  #timesaver!  Wrap a touch of Linen Thread around the top and you're set!  Presto!

I also think that this particular layout can be large-sized to create a very masculine card for that special lumberjack in your life to wish him a Happy Birthday or Anniversary or any such occasion!  What do you think!?

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
