Pillow Talk

Just a quick share of what I've been creating this week. I think I'm addicted to these little Pillow Pockets.  We will be making these little cuties next month over at Your Paper Pantry for the Pockets for Your Thoughts swap that I host. I used a variation of paper, Prima flowers along with seam bindings and crochet trims. Most are for saying thank you to a friend, relative or teacher but I also added some Halloween for my special kiddo's that come trick or treating. Thanks for checking in.

New Look ~~~

Hi everybody,
Just thought I would post my new blog look. I needed something to motivate me. The header is a  picture of my sweet daughter in law when she and my son were on their honeymoon June of 2012.  It seems like yesterday we were just planning a wedding. The picture is taken of Kristen walking the streets of Manarca, Italy. Looks dreamy doesn't it? AWWW... so just wanted to share. Hope this post finds you well and enjoying the simplicity of the end of summer days. It was always a bitter sweet time for me as my kids headed off to a new school year but also a refreshing  start for setting goals and new beginnings. 
Thanks for checking in and I do plan on sharing some creations in the next weeks ahead.
Thanks for checking in.

Back To Christmas

Hi all my blog pals.It seems like I'm jumping back a bit but I wanted to share my Crhistmas album I just completed today for my friend Natalie. She and I have gotten to know each other through some album swaps and we decided last year that the next theme would be Christmas. She shares the same style as I do using lots of layers and always a love for that vintage touch. It is a very thick album but I love how it turned out. The front cover has a very vibrant image from an old Anna Griffin stack pack and a Christmas pick from Michaels that I cut down to size. The album binder was a new chalenge which I will do again because of the easy transformation. It was a kit from Pine Cone press that I purchased at Archivers. I plan on mailing it next week so since she hasn't seen the real deal as of yet this will only be a sneak peek but stay tuned for more to come. Thanks for checking in and as always I would love to know what you think.

Sharing Some Love

Hope this Sunday share of "love" finds you enjoying the stillness of January and looking forward to some Valentine goodness. February will be here before we know it and with that comes the season of love. I'm not usually a big Valentine kind of girl since my boys are grown and have their own Valentine sweethearts but I love the colors,sweet images and memories that come with the theme. So with that said I am sharing some sweet cards I made for a group of ladies and wanted to tell a little bit about them. I started with craft card stock and added the paper from Reflections LOVE stack which I'm really liking. The K&Company die cuts were a must have for these layouts but I added and fussy cut them on to some chip board to give them more depth. I also added stickles and the TH doily die for a completed look. The TH ticket die embellished with a close pin and flower and a LOVE YOU SO sentiment in my oppinion really topped it off along with the one tatterd flower in the middle card. It's always fun to make them a little different. Hope you like them. Thanks for checking in and I hope you will leave a comment and have a great week.
