Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop

Monday, June 25, 2012



Finally I am able to join the fun!  Today is PTI's monthly blog hop.  The challenge is to make a project using this photo as inspiration.  My husband brought home his work laptop since ours bit the dust last night.  We have ordered a new one, but it will take a few days to arrive. 


Have a great day!

I took the colors from this striking project by Kristii
I needed a few gingham hexagons for another project, so I wasn't concerned when not all of them cut through. I knew I'd use it for something.  I tucked this mat stack die cut into the partially cut hexagons.    

More hexagons to come...:)
Thanks for stopping by today!

Getting My Feet Wet

Friday, June 22, 2012



When I first get a new stamp set I don't set out to make the most creative thing I can think of.  I just want to stamp the images and see how they look.  I just need use them once and get over the excitement of a new set.  After that I can start to think about the other sets it would work with and sometimes come up with a unique way to use the set.  This is the card I made to "get my feet wet" with the set.  I liked the color combination so I decided to use it to make a quick anniversary card for my brother and his wife.

Friday Inspiration File #73

Friday, June 22, 2012

Hello! 
Happy Friday. 
Day 3 of my summer vacation and I have a list a mile long of things I'd like to accomplish.  Some craft related, most not.  I have finally submitted a few cards.  We'll see what happens.  We have another 12 Kits of Christmas post coming up on the last day of June with a kit from Amy. I wanted to include a card Amy made into my inspiration file this week {#73}, but was unable to pin it.  I'm going to add a link to it here, because it is just THAT good!! 
Have a great weekend!

Signs of Summer {Vacation}

Tuesday, June 19, 2012


We stopped by my father-in-law's yesterday to pick raspberries, green beans, and swiss chard.  I love to eat these berries right off the bush. So delicious!


During the school year, while I am interpreting, I can't wear anything distracting on my nails.  I usually just use a sheer pink polish, like Essie's Ballet Slippers.  So today, in honor of summer, I went and had my nails done:) 


I decided to make tags for each pair of flip flops I gave out.  12 pair in all!  They all really loved them at work!
Just a few signs around here that summer {vacation}has arrived!
