February Jacksonville Blog Hop

Our February challenge was to make a card using this sketch

The thing I love about Stampin' Up is you can adjust ideas and make something beautiful with what you already have! I do not own any of the punches above. I do own other dies that I used instead.
This is my version(s) of this sketch:

I am still on Valentine's mode! You have enough time to order so I made this Sephora inspired card! I love me some Sephora and thought it made a really unique card! The paper is the Stacked with Love Designer Series paper stack 137779. If you purchase the paper stack and the You Plus me stamp set you get 15% off! Deal! Of course I took advantage of that one! That bundle is: Clear stamp set 138880 or wood stamp set 138879. 
I used the thinlits from the Mini treat bag thin lit dies, some rhinestones, the label & heart die from the Circle card thin lit set 133480.
The base is Whisper white paper and the heart cut out is Real Red card stock, there are also dementionals used for the heart and label!!

Next holiday would be Easter! I decided to get this adorable Easter stamp set called For Peeps' Sake 138557. I couldn't pass up the cuteness! When I think of Easter I think...PEEPS!!! 
The paper is from the Sale-A-Brations catalog..I got it free when I ordered $50 in merchandise! The colors remind me of spring! Even though I am liking the cooler winter weather..spring time is so beautiful! All the bright colors!
 The banner dies are from the Mini treat bag Thinlit dies 137547 collection! Like above the lane is from the Circle Card set. I ended up using the Starburst layering die 132967 to display my cute purple Peep!  I ended up stamping the Happy, Hoppy Easter on one end of the banner and cutting it right above the stamped image! There's so many ways to use the dies! Love it!! 

Take a look at my website:

Happy New Year!

January Jax Starz Blog Hop!!!

Very sad to see Christmas go...I still have my decorations up as I write this!
But, I am very excited that I get to swap Christmas for Valentine's Day decor!!!

It's even more exciting because the new Occasions catalog is out Jan 6th!! 
There's a whole bunch of NEW items that are amazing!
That also means SALE-A-BRATION time!!
For every $50 in product you purchase (before shipping & tax) you get a FREE product. 
There are 11 special items to choose from! They even have bundle ideas & projects so you don't have to hunt around the catalog to come up with $50 to spend!!

The January Jax Starz Blog Hop theme this month is Valentine's!!!
I made this frame because I saw this great idea on Pinterest! It's a little different, but an easy and cute piece of craftiness to have out on my console (since it will be so bare without my Christmas decor!).
I love the idea of having this out year long to let my husband or family know
the things they do that help make me feel loved!

I found this double 4x6  picture frame and thought it was perfect for this project.
Buy a dry erase marker to change your "because" every day or when ever you please! It wipes off easily from the glass so you can change your reason as often as you want!!
Great way to make your Valentine feel appreciated!
Cute gift for spouse, parents, grandparents, teachers or friends!

These are the items I used!! I love all the NEW things the Occasions catalog has! Made this frame even more amazing!
