Hi guys, I hope you’re all having a great week so far!  I can hardly believe that the month is more than halfway done, yet here we are with less than two weeks left!  Today I have a super cute birthday card with a dazzling phone…perfect for anyone you know with a dazzling personality!  I used June’s Stamp of the Month and the coordinating dies, Hi, Hey, Hello, to create this card.  

I die cut the phone out of Cosmo Cricket’s Crystal Lake and love the sparkly effect and also used Label Stacklets 6 to layer it onto.   This card was super  easy to put together and would be fun to make in other colors!

Hey guys, it’s time for the Baker’s Dozen and Key Ingredients Designers to team up for the Stamp of the Month hop!  This month’s Stamp of the Month Kit is called Bright Boutique and the coordinating dies are called Hi, Hey, Hello.  This super cute kit has some adorable images and coordinating dies and the June KI Kit includes Simple Stories DIY Boutique collection.  How cute is the sticker from this kit?


I am in love with the cute little circle/heart die, which is actually part of the telephone die.

Hi guys!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  We had beautiful weather and despite a crazy week leading up to the weekend, which included trips to the doctor for sickies, many sleepless nights, and a car breaking down, we had a fun weekend hanging out outside.  

Today I have a sweet card to share using Taylored Expressions Stamp of the Month, Bloom & Grow.  I also used the coordinating dies, Hello Blooms, and used 3D foam square to add a little dimension to my card.  If you follow my blog, you know I love attention to the tiny details and so I added a Doodlebug Sprinkle to the tiny butterflies…I think they’re my favorite thing about this card, lol!  


Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great week!



Hi everyone!  It’s been a crazy month and I can hardly believe it’s the 19th already!  Today I have a card using Taylored Expressions Stamp of the Month, Made With Love and the coordinating dies, Stitched With Love.  This set is super cute and the coordinating dies are equally fun!  If you are new to Taylored Expressions or want more information about the monthly kits, you can get all the details HERE.  

For today’s card I used Label Stacklets 2 and Label Stacklets 6 to create my frame.  I die cut the dress form, scissors and button from wood paper and inked the edges with chalk ink.  The button stamp is so cute and made a fun background for my card.  I added a little seam binding and ribbon to the dress form and I love how the little details make it stand out.    


Thanks for stopping by, hope you all have a wonderful weekend!



Hi guys, it’s time for the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop and I am in love with this month’s stamp set!  The April Stamp of the Month is called, Made with Love, and has coordinating dies called, Stitched with Love.  These two are simply adorable!  The sweet background and tag papers are from the Key Ingredients Kit and I love the colors and tones in it.  If  you’re not familiar with the Stamp of the Month or Key Ingredients kits, you can check it out HERE for more details.  

I die cut the vintage sewing machine out of wood paper and stamped the sentiment onto a scrap piece of lighter wood paper.  I used Tag Stacklets 2 and Tag Reinforcements for my tag.  The flower was die cut from Bloom Where You’re Planted out of coffee filters, spritzed it with water, scrunched and dried it with a heat gun, and finally, airbrushed a little color to it with copics.  I like the soft color of it.  


Be sure to check out the rest of the hop!  There’s some gorgeous eye candy to see!  




Hey everyone, I hope you’re having a great week so far!  Today I have a super cute and easy card to make using Taylored Expression’s Stamp of the Month, Take A Spin.  I used the coordinating dies, Spin It to Win It and In Flight Overlays for the beautiful butterflies.  I love how the Stamp of the Month has coordinating dies!

For this card, I stamped the images and placed the coordinating die over the image and die cut them.  The dies line up beautifully over the images and I use a post it note to keep it in place…easy peasy!
