It's the Little Things

I have to tell you about the December Special.
I just love these mini-albums for gifts 
or to document a special event that you have lots of pics from.
I did the Blush one for convention pics and I am doing
a Denim one for hubby for Christmas.
I may do a travel one with the striped option.
You can read about the details of the special HERE.

I will give you an overview of each choice below.

Let's start with the Blue Jean Mini Album.  The special price is $18.95, and yes you do really receive all of that in the bundle!!

Next up is the Blush Mini Album which is also $18.95.

The next album is the Everyday Life album
I am thinking this will make a perfect gift for the world traveler in my family.
Take a look at what you get for $19.95:

Wow, aren't those prices great?
And you can get a deal with Persnickety Prints for smaller size prints.
Check that out HERE.
Have a great week friends!

Scrappy Saturday

Welcome to Scrappy Saturday.
I've been playing with the SOTM
I used the stamps and watercolors to mimic the design in my scarf.
I feel like this layout needs more
and after seeing Shelly's layout, in our blog hop, I think I may need to go back and add some random stamping.
This pic is one of my faves that my sister took a few weeks back when we had an impromptu family photo shoot at our town park.
Here's a detailed look at the flowers and the 
Stamp of the Month.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Rose Blossom Blog Hop

Happy December!
Along with all the excitement of the holidays
we have a new, and beautiful, Stamp of the Month.
The Rose Blossoms
created some pretty creations with the beautiful blossoms featured in 
The complete blog hop list can be found on Brenda's 
artful blog Rose Blossom Legacies.
Or you can start here and follow the links and end at Brenda's.
Either way,
you are sure to be inspired by the blooming creativity of this team!
I was inspired to wake up my CTMH Watercolors with this set.
Here is my favorite card of the bunch I created.
This card was so much fun to create!
I painted a sunny wash on Watercolor Cardstock.
Then I stamped the floral image 3 times.
After a short drying time I painted the images, then fussy cut them out and adhered them to my background.
Then I added a sentiment (there are quite a few in this set and I love that!).
This cardstock was added to a card base covered with the Lagoon stripe PP featured in the 
I hope you come back this month to see more of my flower creations!
But for now, please hop on over to the blog of the
effervescent Shelly at
Just One Pretty Piece.
I had a sneak peek and let's just say we may be twinning just a bit!
Thanks for visiting!  Enjoy the short and sweet hop!

All That Glitters

All the glitters is not necessarily gold.
When you see CTMH Glitter Cardstock you will see its 
amazing quality!
It is strong, very little glitter flakeage (new word, lol), and no
annoying smell like cheaper glitter papers.
It cuts in my Cricut and Cuttlebug like a dream!
Hint: I do use the Multi-Cut key function for a second round of cutting in the Cricut.
Here are a few signs I made for my Winter Wonderland booth this weekend.
Both cuts are from the
Artistry Cartridge.
These cool, wood distressed signs were on sale at Michael's for just over $2!!!
You can find our Glitter Cardstock HERE.
Sadly, this lovely green is retired (good thing I stocked up when it was on clearance).
I have been tearing through the White, Sea Glass and Red for holiday creations lately!
Have a sparkly day!

I saw some albums or "happy mail" albums on Pinterest and become obsessed with creating them, lol.
Here's a peek inside...
You can tuck photos, journaling cards, or little goodies inside the envies.
I think I will need to make more of these!

Scrappy Saturday

Welcome to Scrappy Saturday.
Here'a layout, Pinterest-inspired by a number of layouts I saw,
featuring my lovely DD.
We had dinner at her place on Thanksgiving and I could not have been more proud
of the strong, independent woman she has become.
Her wonderful BF supports her in all her endeavors and he is an amazing cook!
I was so "in the moment" visiting and eating that I neglected to take any photos Thanksgiving.
So, I'll share this fun one of JoAnna.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
