Your Next Stamp Fun Friday!


Hello!  Well I had so much fun decorating a cello bag the other day, that I decided to try a paper bag today:)  I've been seeing so many cool spider web die cuts lately which inspired me to check out the Silhouette Online Store to see if they had any fun files!  

I found this awesome Corner Spider Web by Lori Whitlock~love her stuff! which went perfectly with this ADORABLE spider (I can't believe I just said that!) from the Your Next Stamp set Spooky Hello.  The sentiment comes from the YNS Trick or Treat set.  

Make sure you check out the Your Next Stamp Blog every Friday to see lots of amazing Fun Friday projects from the DT!  

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a great weekend:)

Color Throwdown #211!


Hello!  It's time for a new Color Throwdown, and this week the super sweet and talented Wanda Cullen is our hostess!  I thought these colors would be perfect for a fall tag and this is what I came up with:



I filled up a glassine bag with some yummy candy corn, and cut my tag with one of the Your Next Stamp Bookmark/Tag Layered Die Set Dies.  I embossed the tag with the PTI Woodgrain Impression Plate and added some dp from the Jillibean Soup Apple Cheddar Soup Paper Pad.  The darling images come from the Your Next Stamp Fall Globe Accessories Set~LOVE!!!   Here is a closer look at the tag:


We hope you'll play along with us this week!  Just link your creations to the Color Throwdown Blog HERE and make sure you check out the rest of the amazing DT projects while you're there!

My daughter and I have been nursing nasty colds this week.  I'm hoping we get better by Saturday because she has a big gymnastics meet this weekend in Daytona!  Thank you so much for stopping by today, and I hope you have a healthy Wednesday!

The Bounty of Autumn


Hello!  I wanted to share a card I made for the Taylored Expressions Last Card Standing competition:)  This sounds like such a fun contest and I have been a stalker of TE for years, so I thought I would take the plunge and go for it!  I put in an order for some stamps, but until I get them I have a couple of cards made with the awesome free digis!  For this card I used the beautiful basket of apples and sentiment.  The dp is Jillibean Soup Apple Cheddar Soup.  

I'll be back tomorrow with another card that I combined with this week's Color Throwdown!  Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day!

Your Next Stamp Fun Friday!


Hello!  It's time for another Fun Friday at Your Next Stamp!  This month's theme is Trick or Treat, so I decided to make a fun and simple lollipop treat box:)  I found this template in the Silhouette Online Store called Party Favor Wrapper by Lori Whitlock, and thought it would be perfect for a lollipop treat holder!

I cut out the wrapper with Echo Park Paper Co. Happy Halloween dp and stamped my FAVORITE EVER Halloween sentiment from the YNS set Spooktacular, along with this adorable ghost from the same set.  I poked a hole on top of the wrapper for my lollipop stick and tied the bow around to keep it in place.  So simple and cute!

Make sure you check out the Your Next Stamp Blog to see more awesome Halloween projects today!  

I am so glad that it's Friday.  Now that I'm homeschooling my daughter, I look forward to the weekends more than ever!  We did take a break today and hit a big Vera Bradley sale at our local Hallmark store which was fun;)  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

My Hubby's Birthday Card


Howdy!  I wanted to share the birthday card I made for my hubby the other day:)  His birthday was on Tuesday (9/11) and this year I surprised him with Zac Brown Band tickets (floor level right in front of the stage~YAY!)  I thought this ADORABLE cowboy from Your Next Stamp named Nathan from the USA would go perfectly with his gift!  I colored him up with Copic markers, and used some Simple Stories Awesome dp.  The stars were cut with the Your Next Stamp Whimsy Star Layered Die Set which I adore:)   

I'll be back tomorrow with a fun Halloween treat idea from YNS!  Thank you so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

Color Throwdown #209


I can't tell you how happy this photo makes me:)  I just LOVE FALL!!!  We really don't have a fall in Florida, but that doesn't stop me from pulling out my pumpkins and leaves, and sunflowers, and cinnamon pumpkin candles, and scarecrows, etc.:)  Lynn picked out our gorgeous colors this week, and this is what I came up with:


I used this gorgeous wreath from the Verve set Harvest Blessings and the leaves are from the same set.  The sunflower is from the PTI Simple Sunflower Stamp Set with coordinating dies.  The sentiment comes from the PTI set Fall Elegance, and I used the Deconstructed Sketch #68 for my layout.  

Make sure you check out the Color Throwdown Blog to see the rest of the stunning DT creations and to link your projects!  Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday!
