Fashionably late. Hope it was great!

***Note: I am SOOO sorry, but I am getting super spammed with super bad stuff. So I have turned on word verification TEMPORARILY and will be taking it down in a week or two - hopefully weeding out the anonymous spammers. I hope you understand! I personally hate word verification, so it won't be up long!***

Hello! This is my Shop Pumpkin Spice post which means I got almost EVERYTHING on this card from Shop Pumpkin Spice! It looks like she is sold out of one of the On the Bright Side Paper Pads, but the other one is the one I have used more anyway! I love them both. 

I had a GREAT time making this card and actually spent two days working on it (of crafty time... I didn't stare at it the WHOLE day. lol.) So I am really pleased with the result! I hope you like it too! 

I chose to use the two different embossing powders on this card and line them up - a tricky thing, but it was really fun from concept to execution. 

***SORRY! Taken down for publication in Cricut Magazine - the December issue!***

My Pink Designer Showcase! ... Friends are Always in Fashion

Good morning to you!

We were given these super fun stamps to work with for our My Pink Designer Showcase

You can see the whole set below and you can find them in the links below!

Baby Shower Thank You Cards

I think I am going to stamp the Thank You sentiment on the outside of the right version as well. My original plan was to do it on the inside, but I think it will be great on the outside too.

I whipped these up really quickly using Cricut Craft Room! I am really enjoying using it since my Gypsy died! Oh no! But I was able to get 6 A2 sized baby onesie fronts out of a 12x12 sheet of paper. I love it! So I made 12 to start with and since it is just one cut on top of a shaped base... a little ATG work and I was done! :) 


Stay tuned for my 500 blog post giveaway!!! I am going to go a little crazy and have been collecting things for you for a while now! I can't wait to share! :) This is post 487!

Little One

Hello! I hope you are all doing well! 

I whipped up this card for two challenges: 
Cricut Circle Challenge: Color Challenge
Glue Arts: Make something for Mother's Day (this one is for a new mother!) and take a pic showing use of the projects. 

For some reason, the pictures didn't show that the black background was embossed, but you can see it on the backside of the picture below.

Bless this little nest

Well, I was busy with friends over National Scrapbook Day so I haven't gotten to participate in any of the super fun challenges, but I am catching up! :)

I made this one for the Cricut Circle Recipe Challenge. 

I used the Shop Pumpkin Spice May Kit to create this card! It features My Mind's Eye Indie Chic!

This card is a little busy for me. But I had a great time making it! There was a LOT in the recipe challenge.

Recipe Challenge:
At least 3 Cricut Cuts
A Bird, Bug, or Butterfly
Three Patterned Papers

Pumpkin Spice NSD Layout by Court

Hello and welcome to National Scrapbook Day with Shop Pumpkin Spice - challenge #2 - create a layout! 

This is always an interesting challenge for me, but getting into more "layouts" I was excited to expand my wings a little. I cased a layout which you can see below and I saw it on someone else's blog so I am still waiting to hear back who the original designer is. Hopefully it will be up here by NSD, but it might not. 

This was my first layout that I've made about our baby girl that is due in July! We've had three ultrasounds so these are pictures from each one. She has grown so much! I can only imagine how it will feel when she is on the "outside"! 

Check out the challenges HERE and participate for a chance to win $20 to the SPS store!!! And with prices that are always 30% below retail - that $20 goes a LOooooooooonnnnnnnnNG way. trust me. You should just start shopping now. :) With three challenges that means there are three GC's to be won! Participate in one challenge or all three! The last one will be posted at 2pm PST. Check back! :) 

Here is the layout that I cased:

You are what makes life so super sweet!

I decided to make this card because I had just gotten some of these materials and I was excited to use them. Don't forget to pull out your Echo Park Summer Days for this year's summer treats! It's from last year, but I still love it! Make sure to pick up the matching solids because they come in SO handy when trying to match these colors! 

This will probably be for my husband.. Of course I am the green one since my favorite color is green and he is the orange one because sometimes I take a bite out of him. Mean wifey! ;) I'm so cheesy. 


Shop Pumpkin Spice is doing something super fun for our normal blog hop because it falls on National Scrapbook Day. So make sure to stop by the blog for a TON of inspiration!!!
