Princess Happy Birthday

This is my Shop Pumpkin Spice post for the day! I hope you enjoy it! :) 

When I was making this card late one night, I couldn't help but think, "What would Shantaie Fowler do?". It was definitely inspired by her style which I sometimes share! I added sparkle to the tops of the towers and Glossy Accents to all parts with roses on them. The ribbon treatment was definitely inspired by her! Check out her blog if you haven't! She's a super sweetie.

SPS Blog Hop using MPS Kit Yankee Doodle

I made another project for this hop using the Yankee Doodle Kit! - A little flag to wave while watching a parade or to put as centerpieces at a party! 

I hope you like it! Last month the kit sold out in 24 hours so go and check out if they are all sold out or if you can still order them! You get a LOT for your money! 

You should have gotten here from the fabulously talented Lenae's blog! If not, start at the beginning at the Shop Pumpkin Spice Blog.  

I am the last stop on the hop! Head on back to Shop Pumpkin Spice and order your kit! :) I hope we have inspired you today! :)

My Pink-alicious Blog Hop - Yankee Doodle

So, this month we get to play with another FABULOUS kit from My Pink Stamper sold exclusively at Shop Pumpkin Spice! It's called Yankee Doodle and I have been THRILLED to play with it!

You should have gotten here from the amazingly talented Carissa's Blog! If not, please start HERE at My Pink Stamper to join in all of the fun! 

My Pink Stamper challenged us to make a project this month and I ended up making two... but you'll have to come back again tomorrow to see the second one! :) It's also made completely with the kit. :)

When the kit goes live at 12:00pm CST, this is the link to where you can purchase it. It won't be available until that time. 

I decided to make a badge that you could wear to a parade or party to liven things up! I enjoyed the splash of yellow in this kit adding a "non-traditional" color to the palate. 

Here is the complete line up in case you get lost: 
Courtney <---You Are HERE.

Now head on over to the sweet Edna's blog - she is the one who designed these stamps!!!

Don't forget that there is a My Pink Stamper Live starting at 11:30am CST and the kit will go LIVE and ready for purchase at 12:00pm CST. Last time the kit sold out in 24 hours so be sure to get your order in as soon as it goes live. :) They even crashed the site from so many people trying to get it, so if at first you don't succeed, try try again. :) I also heard a rumor about a kit giveaway... You'll have to be on the My Pink Stamper Live to hear about how to win that!

Mom's Birthday Card

***I am away on vacation right now in a place that doesn't really have internet, so forgive me if I don't get back to you if you have any questions! We are sneaking in a pre-baby mini getaway in the Santa Cruz Mountains (the redwoods). It's absolutely gorgeous!***

Happy Father's Day to all of the FABULOUS fathers out there including my dad and my husband (father to be!)!!!

I made this for my mom's birthday. She is a gardener and when I saw this kit, I knew this was JUST perfect for her. 

I totally fell in love with this Simple Stories line and quite literally have been waiting for it to come out for months! So I was tickled! 

I used the Artful Delight June Sketch below:

Recipe: Artful Delight June Kit (there were a few more left when I typed this up! Go check!)
Cartridge: Country Life
Sentiment: My Pink Stamper: Birthday Crazy

Birthday Fun - Shaped Card!

Hello and welcome to my Shop Pumpkin Spice post for today! 

I hope you enjoy this shaped card. I created it on Cricut Craft Room and boy was that a learning curve! My Gypsy died when I did the last update and I've been super sad about that, so I am trying to learn CCR. Wish me luck! (I miss my Gypsy!)

You're a Great Catch - Father's Day Card

I made this for the Imaginisce June Challenge. It is a sketch challenge using over 75% Imaginisce as well.

I made this for my Father-in-Law who I call my co-dad. He's fantastic and he'll be fly-fishing in Idaho during Father's Day so he is receiving this WAY early! For me, he was a great catch of a father-in-law. He is wise, patient, kind, and caring. I got super lucky.

Fur-ever Family

I made this card for my Father's Day for my dad. I'm planning on putting a "D" for dad on his little badge. Love this bear! 

I made all of this except for the ribbon from my stash from Shop Pumpkin Spice! Check out her deals and just an FYI, sometimes the shipping is not what it says it is and is usually less! She will let you know!

For the new mommy...

A HUGE happy birthday to MY mom! It's her birthday today and I am SO lucky to live close enough to her to celebrate with her! I am very excited! My birthday is on the 10th so we usually do something together. :) We like to eat. It will be some place with good food. :)

Another Canvas Corp card. LOVING their products! Make sure to check them out a craft store near you!

I went to a friend's baby shower on the 19th and she is having a little girl. She is all about being girlie, so I made this card girlie too! :)

Canvas Corp Thank You!

Another card made with Canvas Corp goodies! I love their products and the combo with 7Gypsies is always so much fun! 

I simply grabbed the stamps and put them all on one block and stamped them right onto the canvas. It stamped beautifully.

The twine is from the tags and twine combos that Canvas Corp has. I didn't even have to cut it. Perfect length! 

Lastly, I have always stamped my sentiment onto a plain colored background for the most part. I am just starting to get into stamping on a patterned paper background. Sometimes it comes out more vivid and sometimes it hides it more! It's really fun. Give it a try! It works beautifully on this 7Gypsies paper though! 


Make sure to stop by the Canvas Corp blog and let them know I sent you please! :) 

I will be giving away some of their goodies in my 500th post celebration! :)

SPS Blog Hop - Sympathy Cards

***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!***

I'm not sure if you read but our fearless leader Denine had a super sad tragedy in her life - her father in law very suddenly passed away from an accident. So she is gone in India to pay her respects and to mourn with the family. We decided to have our blog hop anyway and to inspire you with sympathy cards which we are sending to Denine.

You should have gotten here from Diana's Blog! If not, start HERE at the beginning at the Shop Pumpkin Spice blog


I am the last stop on the hop anyway so head on back to the Shop Pumpkin Spice blog if you didn't start there! :)
