I am thrilled to be with you today; thank you for stopping by! The last few weeks I have been traveling with Scrapbook Expo and teaching a variety of workshops. I want to share my love of crafting with you today, as I have some wonderful projects to showcase. My hope is that these will serve as a great jump start when you are feeling stumped and uninspired. Hope you enjoy today’s projects!
This is one of those perfect designs that can be adapted to fit any occasion. Even though there are a lot of beautiful details and dimension to this layout, the photo is still the first thing your eye is drawn to. Take the time to journal, to preserve and record those special moments of life. It is always so fun to go back and reminisce about those special memories.
This gorgeous layout was designed by Di Garling, and what inspiration she has given us! Click here to see more of her fabulous projects. Break out of your traditional style; take a look at your project in a different way, and never hesitate to try something new.
My eyes were immediately drawn to this adorable birthday card with the machine stitching around the edges. What a fabulous way to add a personal touch to your cards. This is a very simple card, yet it has so much appeal. Adding a perfect bow to this card gave it just what it needed.
It made me want to pull out my favorite papers and begin to create! This is a perfect card to give to that special person on their birthday. Come with me over to My Cup Runneth Over where you will find so much more inspiration from Karen, along with a list of all the supplies that you will need. A big thank you Karen for sharing this adorable card!
This darling card truly warms my heart. I am so in love with the Hang In There stamp set from Impression Obsession. Just think of the different possibilities you can do with this fun stamp. I can see this stamp working for all seasons – Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall.
Come with me over to The Serendipitous Stamper where you can see each step that Ellen used to create her card. You will also see her same design made using a chalkboard technique with Prisma pencils. You won’t want to miss this project!

Are you a coconut lover? If so, this is the treat for you. My husband loves coconut, so I made these for him hoping I could make a new favorite treat. Well, guess what? I did just that. He loved every bite! (Shhh…they are super easy to make as well.)
