Friends Owlways

Happy Sunday Crafty Friends!!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!  Hubby is gone with his dad fishing, so the kids and I have been out doing a lot of fun things!!  

Today is my day to post on the Joy's Life DT Blog!

This week we are featuring Friend Shaped Cards!

I decided to create an Owl Shaped card for one of my best friends, using the Punny Animals set!
I used the "from you know hoo" sentiment for the front....

and then in the inside I stamped "friends owlways"
How fun!!

A look at the entire Punny Animals set:

Summer in 3D Blog Hop

It's a blog 3D!  

Welcome to the "Summer in 3D Blog Hop" with Joy's Life Stamps!!

You should have came here from the talented Dawn's blog, if not, please start at the beginning at Joy's Life!  You don't want to miss out on all the wonderful projects!  As well as any prizes!


We were to create a Summer themed 3D project!

With that in mind, we do a lot of fishing in summer as a family, so I knew I wanted to use the fun "Best Fishes" sentiment from the "Pun In The Sun" set!

So I decided to create some candy packaging to give the kids on our next fishing adventure!!
I think they turned out so cute!!

The one for my little guy is filled with Swedish Fish!  And the one for my little girl with some JuJu Colored Fish!  The little guy does not like the colored ones, only Swedish Fish!!  And she only likes the colored ones, so when eating them the actually say "I have the Best Fishes!!" :)

Check out her fins!  They are shimmery!! 

Close-up of the fun sentiment:
I just love Joy's fun stamps!!

"Pun In The Sun"

Happy Monday crafty friends!  

Hope you had a great weekend!!

It's my day to post on the 3 Girl JAM Blog!!

I needed a quick "Thank You" card to give to my mom, so I thought it would be fun to use my favorite Vintage Crochet Trim and Crinkle Ribbon together!!  

I really enjoy using my Crinkle Ribbon to entwine it in this trim.  I love the finished look!

The beautiful frame is from the Inspired By Stamping Fancy Lables 2 set! Along with the Fancy Labels 2 Die!  The sentiment is from the Graceful Hydrangea set!

For this card I used Cherry Lipstick!
 I used the wonderful 3GJ Bow Maker to create my perfect bow!!

Isn't it a lovely touch?!

I added one of my lovely Pinque Peacock pearl stick pins!!

Check out all the lovely 3GJ Crinkle Ribbon colors here!!

Have w wonderful day!

Rafting LO

Every year my family takes a trip to a campground a few hours away that has a nice river you can go down tubing!

The kids just love it!  We've been doing it for a few years now!
Just a quick layout of some of the pictures taken!

Last year, we stopped along the way and my little girl got out on a big rock and started "shaking" it! (She loves dancing)  Another group had a radio with them and she said she just wanted to dance to the music!! lol

Usually we take two trips and it never fails, they usually fall asleep the second time down!!

Can't wait to go this year!

Have a wonderful Sunday!!

A Love For Olives!

Our little girl is in love with OLIVES!

She eats them like they are candy!  

I am not a fan of them!  But she sure is!

Worst part.....she even likes them in her ICE CREAM! 

So I obviously had to create a layout in memory of her love for olives!

She held one up for me....and then the other picture is what she says of how she feels when she has olives....HAPPY! :)
Crazy girl!

Have a great day!

Minnie Mouse

Happy Wednesday!!

I am soooo excited to be guest designing for Pinque Peacock!!

I recently fell in LOVE with their products!

I love the beautiful stick pins!  And the fabulous flowers created with 3GJ crinkle ribbon!!

This month's PP Release is inspired by DISNEY!!

How exciting!

With two little kids, we watch many, did I say MANY Disney movies!

So with the release in mind, I just had to create an adorable Minnie Mouse card!
The fabulous sentiment is from one of Inspired By Stamping's newest sets; Happy Occasion Sentiments

Check out the pretty fabric covered button from Pinque Peacock:
Works perfecting with her bow!!

Dreams Come True

Good morning shimmery friends!! 

This is my second post for today, be sure to check out my post below!

My little kids take after me and just LOVE creating!  I am always running out of magnets to hang their artwork on the fridge and my desk in my scrapbooking room!

Recently on one of our shopping trips I thought it would be fun to buy some little canvas's to create our own magnet!! 
Look at the shimmer!!

The sentiment, which I thought was perfect to hang up the kids artworks is from the "Big Treasures" set from Inspired By Stamping!

The kids just love it!

Close-up of the butterfly:

As soon as I took a picture they had to hang it up on the fridge! :)
We have a few others that hopefully we will finish up as well!!
