Night night, Sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite–Heather and I have been wanting to use these sleeping photos for a long time because they are so cute and Heather found the perfect page layout for them. Isn’t it funny how no matter how naughty your kids are through out the day when you look at them sleeping at the end of the day they can just melt your heart away again. We have to laugh at this one of Trista who fell asleep on the bathroom sink, now that is called TIRED!
This layout all started with Graphic 45

Well I would like to introduce you to one of my new hobbies using Spellbinders Laurel and Bee die set with some labels that I made for my honey. I just started beekeeping this spring and it has been so much fun seeing those busy bees in me backyard gathering nectar and pollen. A few weeks ago I was able to harvest some of that work with 45 lbs of honey, doesn’t it look good?
45 lbs is a lot of honey to eat by ourselves so we are going to give some away so I thought we could make some

Today I want to share a breast cancer awareness card featuring the Glorious Gerbera dies by Docrafts dies. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and I want to honor the courageous women and men (and their families) who have battled this disease.
Docrafts dies are newer to the US market, so you may not be as familiar with them (they are sometimes also called Xcut dies). They are available in many of the common shapes and sizes (circles, rectangles, squares, flowers, etc.), and there are two beautiful doily dies. Docrafts also makes some fun “build-a-scene” die sets such as “Haberdashery” and “Garden Party”.

Wow where does the time go? Our kids keep having birthdays on an annual basis and you know they are growing up right before our eyes so here is another birthday card for our princess. Our Ellana is quite the handful but oh so cute. She is also 100% girl and loves everything to do with princesses right now (tiaras, dresses, pretty shoes, and “ip stick”) This card will really get her excited.
When we received this die cut from Sizzix, both Heather and I thought the same thing, that it would make a cute Cinderella carriage even though it said

I teach an AP Art class and if you know anything about AP classes you always have about 2 weeks left after they take their tests so in AP Art we do a little bookmaking and each student makes their own sketchbook that they can fill up through out the summer. Here are a few examples of books that I made with them where I used Bo Bunny and Authentique paper as the cover. This paper is perfect for the cover because it is sturdy and durable (Plus it looks really nice). After I got them done here at the

Mothers Day is coming up pretty quick so what better gift could you give her than an album full of pictures of her children? Unfortunately I can’t give this one to Heather because she made half of it but take a few minutes and make one for the mother you have in your life. We had these pictures that grandma took as they played cowboy (and cowgirl) at their house. These Albums from Want2Scrap are really fun to put together and they have so many different styles to choose from. Sometimes it is nice to get a break from doing

When we got the Sizzix Ballroom Slippers I thought right away that these would be perfect for decorating our daughters room. Our two year old is such a diva and has a fascination with shoes (especially high heals). We just sat down yesterday and started to play with the die set and these are what we came up with.
What we did was grabbed some of our double sided 6×6 paper pads, ran the dies through our Cuddlebug, and glued everything together; they are so simple and even give you crease lines to fold on. I really liked how the shoe

Here is a fun Ornament ideas for your Christmas tree this year using My Minds Eye Christmas paper. I know that when you think of Christmas ornaments books aren’t the first thing that comes to mind but they make a fun and interesting addition to the tree.

These Sizzix Dies work perfectly with the Homespun Paper! They are homey and adorable, just like the paper! One thing that I think is so insanely awesome about the Sizzix BigZ Dies is that you can use it with more than paper. You can use felt, fabric, vinyl, you name it! It does it all and they cut so easily! Want to put an adorable flower on your daughters shirt? Look no more! Just run your die and fabric through your machine and walah! Sew it onto your shirt and you have a cute new design for your daughters wardrobe.

Welcome to our pumpkin patch using Heartfelt Creations Classic Edition Collections paper and Bo Bunnys Serenade paper. It must be the change of season because Heather always gets really crafty in the fall with all the holidays coming up. Heather has a lot of Halloween decorations but after it is all over, and we put all the decorations away the house seems really empty because we really lack in just fall decor. The paper on the front of them is great because it is fall theme not just Halloween. These pumpkins are also great because they can use up a

I have found a passion in working with Cut, Fold and Tuck dies (See HERE), so this Spellbinders Diamond Strip and Accents baby card was a blast to make! I am quite content to sit and fold over the flaps to create a cool woven embellishment. It’s rather relaxing and I totally love the effect. I am so happy that Spellbinders came out with some new designs in the CFT line. They are SO cool!
I showed my dad how cool these were and he took one look at it and said it looked pretty complicated. HA! Little does he know!

The My Mind’s Eye Gnome Sweet Gnome paper pad is the perfect combination of cute and fun for a bow organizer. Gnome Sweet Gnome…isn’t that what all of our homes are some days? Little rascals running around. Flowers blooming in the sun. Colorful personalities popping up out of nowhere. I think everyone has a little bit of this in their lives. That’s why I love this paper pad so much! It’s is so incredibly adorable and colorful. It has personality. It has pizzaz. And most importantly….it has mushrooms! New fact to know about me, I LOVE cartoon mushrooms. I think they

Hey Everybody, It’s september and that means we’re all in a School Daze! With all the hustle and bustling of getting back to school, buying books, making lunches, and the works, it’s a good idea to get your craft on and make those little students of yours a back to school card. My mom used to surprise us with a card/note and treat in our lunch boxes and I’ve been so excited to carry on that tradition!
My Mind’s Eye School Daze paper pad is P-E-R-F-E-C-T for all things school! I didn’t even have to flip through the paper to realize

Make a wish with Spellbinders Up, Up and Away. This set includes the hot air balloon that you see here but it also has a kite, balloon, flag, and a paper airplane. I love the size of the die cuts because they work great for both cards as well as full page layouts.
I started out by cutting the balloon out but because of the pattern on the paper I couldn’t see the embossed design, so I cut out three more balloons and cut parts of them out and glued them on. This is so easy to do and creates a

We are anxiously awaiting our shipment of the new releases, but I just can’t wait any longer to have you take a look at the Spellbinders Marvelous Squares! They are absolutely one of the most gorgeous dies I have ever laid my hands on!
These aren’t like most dies either. Beautiful intricate edged squares of six offer different cuts and designs. No one square is the same.The beauty of these Majestic Elements is that you can use the negative and positive pieces of these die cuts more creative options! Includes piercing holes, score lines, cutting lines and embossing. There are at

Heather and I decided to do some card making with the Die Cuts With a View and My Mind’s Eye paper stacks this week. We have been invited to a lot of weddings lately so Heather wanted to make a few cards for them, so a few nights ago we put the kids to bed, threw in a movie, and made cards. Heather’s “Legacy Card” is very fancy and has a nice wedding feel to it with the ribbon, Vintage Lace Accents, and Spiral Blossom that she used. Heather loves the spiral blossom and it really makes for a nice

Because Heather and I are new we received a box full of products, which was very exciting, but a few of them really stuck out to me as I sifted through them all, one of them being Spellbinders Pinwheels Shapeabilities die set. As a kid I loved pin wheels and watching them whirl and spin. I wasn’t too sure how I was going to incorporate them but I just wanted to play around with them for a little while. As I started looking through our photos, there it was,my son with a pinwheel in his hand. This is our son
