What Does The Fox Say? Thank You!

Sorry if that song is now stuck in your head ;).
After the recent loss of our 17 week in utero baby, Isaiah, I have so many thank you's to write.
I really want them to be cute and informal because the people that cared for us after our loss are truly my close friends.

This super cute little FOXY set can be found at The Sweet Stamp Shop. The price can't be beat either. I love to support my friends when they're extra amazing.
I'm trying to heal and I hope you're having a great week.

Graduation Card with Cap and Tassle

Sweet Stamp Shop gets SOPHISTICATED!
Break out your old metal rimmed tags! You know you have them...hidden away in some drawer... somewhere :)
I used the small graduation cap from the TOO HIP set to create this great grad card. Change up the color scheme to make it more feminine and color the cap any color you'd like. This is such a versatile set.

The sentiment is from the JUST THE BASICS set.

I know graduation is months away, but I'm one more card prepared than I was before. ;)
Have a great week!

Hi there friends!

I just adore this little mixing bowl from the Sweet Stamp Shop's Baking Love set.. I paired it with hearts from the Stuck on You set. The gold embossed hearts are from SSS's Drops Background set.

Hope your week is full of love.

Sweet Stamp Shop February Release!

Welcome to another round of Sweet Stamp Shop lovliness!
All made in the USA!!
I'm excited to be a part of this great release (which, by the way, is almost sold out already!!)
Head on over to The Shop and get yours while they're still available. You can use coupon code NRF20 to get 20% off your entire NEW RELEASE order!
Here are a few samples I put together for today's festivities. You'll have to head over to the 
to see some of the projects in their entirety.
This cactus from STUCK ON YOU is so squishy and FUN to color! So many accessories to add to the mix too.

Speaking of accessories, this hippo from TOO HIP comes with so many fun ones. You can practically make a card for any occasion with them. Visit the blog to see the complete project.

I used the grad cap from the TOO HIP set and the sentiment from the JUST THE BASICS to make this graduation card

Here again, I reverse copied the hippo from TOO HIP image to make this 
sweet framed gift for a newlywed couple.

So there are just a few ideas of what you can create with the new stamps from the SWEET STAMP SHOP. Don't miss out on all this loveliness, but if you do not to worry, Nicole hopes to have the shop restocked in a couple of weeks!
Have a great week and stay crafty!

PS Nicole has just added a pre-order option to the shop. So you can order today and get the discount and your stamps will get shipped when they come into the shop!!! WOOT!

Home Improvement Tile Removal

We interrupt our regularly scheduled crafting in order to bring you new wood floors!!!! :) 

I will be returning shortly to help out with Sweet Stamp Shop's February release, but for now, I'll be covered in tile dust and trying not to vibrate out of my shoes ;)

Happy Birthday Paper Pieced Animal Party

Today is a special day for a friend of mine. I've known her since the eighth grade. She is truly amazing and such a fun person to be around. She is a giver of herself and so helpful. I'm so glad I got to see her on her birthday and celebrate her special day with her.I think we're getting better with age!
I decided to make an animal card for her because she has the cutest little doggie with the biggest personality. She loves her boy!

Here's to many more years spent celebrating together!

Little Bird Hello Friend

Who is ready for winter to be over and for spring to arrive!?!?! This girl, right here is.
Trying to create things with spring on the brain is refreshing.
This bird from Purple Onion Designs is just the sweetest. The other stamps are from Stampin' Up except for the sentiment which is from Papertrey Ink.

Keep Crafty out there!
