Love and Romance


Hi friends! It's been a little while since I posted here. I've been super busy, but I thought I'd pop in and share a little inspiration with the December Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps release today. My cards for today features the December Stamp of the Month, Much Love. The stamp of the month is available in the shop to purchase, or you can receive it as a free gift with a $75 order in the month of December. Just add it to your cart before you check out and it will automatically apply the promotion.


My first card uses the title sentiment from Much Love, embossed on white cardstock. The background is the beautiful new Rose Background, which I embossed in white, then ink blended with tumbled glass and salty ocean distress oxides. The heart locket is from the NEW Vintage Romance set.  I colored with Zig markers, then fussy cut and added to this fun square card.

For my second card I layered things up with Valentine's papers from years gone by.  When I was a kid my favorite time of year was when we'd make valentines in school.  I just loved layering all the papers and construction paper hearts.  Guess I'm still a kid at heart!


The sentiment is from the Much Love set, and I stamped a background using one of the tiles from the NEW Texture Tiles 7 set.  I just love these sweet hearts! I finished off with some die cuts and then layered everything together for this fun Valentine.


Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous weekend! If you get a chance, be sure to check out the December release! I've linked the entire release below.

Thankful Grateful Blessed + Tons of Sales



Hi friends! It's hard to believe we're just a day away from Thanksgiving. This year has seemed like time stood still, while at the same time speeding forward. So strange of a time in history. As time speeds slowly by, I think I will look back on this year and be most grateful for the chance to spend time with my loved ones. Once the kids reach school age, it's so rare to get pajama days with no appointments, practices, or other commitments. It feels like even though it's been a VERY tough year, we've been given a great gift of time. Time we will cherish when our boys are grown and living elsewhere. My heart is full. As I look at the card above, I'm reminded of just how quickly time passes.  I created this card 10 years ago, and yet it feels like yesterday.  It's still one of my favorite Verve cards ever. He HAS made everything beautiful in its time.

Another thing I'm so very thankful for this year is the creative outlet of stamping. I'm so blessed to have been able to design for a fabulous list of companies this year. An excuse to close the door from all the twin angst and just spend an hour with my art has been a lifeline throughout this year. Many of my favorite companies are having Black Friday sales, so I thought I'd do a post on them, also sharing some fun cards at the same time. While never expected, if you see something you like, I'd love it if you'd consider using my affiliate links to shop. I get a small percentage when you place an order using one of the links, at no additional cost to you.  I so appreciate it and use the funds to help offset the costs of linky services, email subscription services, and Adobe software for my Mojo Monday sketches.
