This tag uses the color combo of Papertrey Ink Ocean Tides + White. I rarely reach for Ocean Tides, but whenever I do I am so happy I did – it really is a pretty color!

10 Minute Craft Dash #30

Hey friends! 3rd Wednesday of the month & time for another 10 Minute Craft Dash (btw, how is it already the 3rd week of November????). Anyways, today we are joined by a fabulous sponsor – Uniko Studio for a $15 gift certificate. Reason enough to play along – love their stuff. And the colors this week are gorgeous.

First, a disclaimer about my card – I had the washi bow ready ahead of time. I used a tutorial on Ashley Marcu’s blog to make it & to be honest it was trickier than I thought and I’m not over the moon with the result, but I went with it anyway! This card took me exactly 10 minutes – it was a tight one with supplies flying around like crazy!

Thats all from me today. Make sure to check out the amazing creations of the DT over at Paulina’s blog!

Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Hey friends!

I’m participating in the Papertrey Ink blog hop today for the first time in what feels like about a year! I never get my act together in time, but this month I somehow managed. The challenge for this month was to create 5 holiday tags. I love making tags but trying to keep things simple lately in the interest of time – stuck with a simple design, stamping & coloring – no extra frills.

PTIOctHop
For some reason these ended up being very time consuming, but not quite sure why! After coloring each wreath with Memento markers I covered the baubles with Stella Wink of Glitter – wish the photos captured the shine – really lovely in real life!

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas is a coming!

Hey! Sorry (again!) for the quiet blog. Life is still crazy here. I don’t really know how everyone with more than 1 child does it – I can barely manage to keep things organized with 1 and he is only 20 months! Can’t imagine 2 or 3 kids with busy schedules – literally can’t image. Anywho, I digress.

I have a quick Christmas card to share – the holiday cards are now in full gear – my first Christmas fair is November 14th – yikes!

Sendingholidaywishes
This card is super simple & came together easily with the help of this gorgeous Authentique Christmas paper.  This sketch is really my go-to at the moment – good to find something that works when time is tight.

Oh, and I know I promised to be sharing my Project Life spreads. I wanted to say that I still plan on sharing, but the pictures of my spreads are so bad, I’m trying to improve some photography skills before I start sharing more!

Have a great day!

10 Minute Craft Dash #25

CD25

Hello! I’m thrilled to be here today sharing a card for the new 10 Minute Craft Dash! This challenge is just the best – it has really been pushing me creatively and I hope it is doing the same for you! This week’s card took me 8 min 36 seconds. Each challenge I perfect my method a bit more ;-)

This week our sponsor is the fabulous Lawn Fawn – such nice, generous people! Check out this great prize…

I made this card during a manic week full of craft fair prep – I was going for a super simple card that I hoped to turn into a card set. This particular card is super simple, but I simplified it even further for the set – I just made a 1 layer card with the feathers stamped & skipped the twine – I’ll share that one tomorrow! 
Thanks for stopping by & make sure to check out all the details over at Pretty Pink Posh & play along!

10 Minute Craft Dash #24

Hey friends! I can’t believe it is time for another 10 Minute Craft Dash. It was such a great birthday celebration – thanks to everyone who joined in the festivities. Hopefully you’re inspired now to take on the challenge because there is a new color combo today and it is gorgeous!

 And, we have a great sponsor – Gossamer Blue is giving their August Bits & Pieces kit to one lucky winner! This is an amazing prize!!!

Onto today’s card – this took me the whole 10 minutes – I was glueing down my last heart as the timer went off. I’m not sure what made this card so much more time consuming, but I know I did waste a good 30 seconds, if not more, trying to get a heart out of the die cut! And in the rush of the card, I lost the little bike basket stamp – eeek! I’m sure it will turn up soon though ;-) 
RI#24
Thats all for me today – and a quick apology for my sporadic posting at the moment – life is crazy as I’m preparing for a big craft fair and an upcoming trip back home to the states. I will be posting more Project Life and other projects as soon as I am able!

Just a Note

Sorry for the quiet blog this week – don’t know where time is going at the moment. It is crazy to think it is almost July!

So, I’ve been making a few card sets lately. I always think I can whip these out quickly, but inevitably they take forever. This set took me all morning – maybe I’m just a slow crafter! Anywho, I managed to finish the notecards and some of the envelopes, but thats it. Check back soon for the packaging…
