Envelope Punch Board

What’s a girl to do when she needs a cute envelope?  Make her own of course! This is possible thanks to the beauty of the envelope punch board.  I created a few Stampin’ Up! gift certificates and knew that I wanted something a little more special to put them in than a regular white envelope….

52 Happy Days

I mentioned earlier that Easter was too rainy for our traditional picture in our front yard.  The azalea blooms never last as long as I want so I took a sunny moment to capture them this year before they faded.  Here is this week’s happy moment! Caitlin

Baby Season

There are several pending arrivals in my life right now!  I had time on Sunday afternoon to create a few baby cards and wanted to show you one.  This was made with the Friends and Flowers stamp set and the Festive Flower Punch.  I love how Stampin’ Up! coordinates their stamps with punches…it saves so…

Sale-A-Bration Sparkle

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! He is risen! It was a rainy Easter here so we skipped the traditional after church picture by our azaleas.  However, it was a wonderful day, full of time with family and lots of good food! It is hard to believe that April is almost here!  While I’m…

Bumble Bee Card – Part 2

Welcome to the weekend!! My husband and I always joke that we have reached the age where time is truly flying by…we must be having fun! A cold snap came through our area earlier this week and about twenty-four hours later I had a sore throat and the start of the “crud”.  Needless to say, this…

52 Happy Days

One day each week, instead of talking about a craft or card, I want to share a photo that made me happy that week.  I’ve been inspired reading other bloggers who have gone through the “100 Happy Days” challenge.  While I am not going to tackle the daily challenge, I do want to incorporate the…

National Puppy Day

I couldn’t let National Puppy Day pass without a few cards designed! Hope everyone gave their pup a few extra treats today! Made with the Hot Diggity Dog stamp set. Caitlin  

My Scrap-Booking Journey – Part 2

I left off yesterday talking about my switch to full size scrapbooks. The reason for this change?  My first horse, Cherokee Perfection (nicknamed Jughead)! I filled the pages with every show, trail ride and move we made. He now has a “Volume 2” scrapbook as well because the first one filled up! From 2004-2007 I also…

My Scrap-Booking Journey

Stylish 90’s fashion, braided perms and braces anyone?  I wanted to share a little of my journey with scrapbooking! As tends to happen when I pull out my scrapbooks, I get sidetracked looking through every page, laughing at the memories (and fashion!) and sometimes crying over the animals who are no longer with me (Sully…

Bow Builder Punch

I wanted to show you three easy cards I created tonight using only the Bow Builder Punch, decorative paper and a paper cutter! Just because I love collecting stamps and craft supplies does not mean everyone has the desire or space to do the same.  That, however, should not keep you from creating cards of…

Paper Pumpkin

I do realize today is the first day of Spring. I’m not trying to fast forward to Fall by talking about pumpkins!   I mentioned earlier that I would be posting about this cool thing Stampin’ Up! offers called Paper Pumpkins. It’s not a literal pumpkin, it’s a craft subscription box! I will confess, the literal accountant in me struggled…

Easter Treat Bags

Welcome to the weekend!! I hope everyone has lots of fun plans or relaxation time scheduled. We are going to a crawfish boil for a good friend’s birthday (yum!), a party with my co-workers to celebrate the end of busy season (accounting), followed by dinner with two fun couples (more food)! I might need a nap by mid-morning because I received a Stampin’…
