4 of a Kind

Good morning!
Hope you are having a wonderful week...
ready for Easter this weekend?
Any special plans?
Traditions?
We'll head to my mom's on Saturday for an egg hunt at her house...
even though 3 of my kiddo's now claim to be too big for it she has money in her eggs...
so they struck a deal with her on the side for some cash instead of hunting the eggs.
And then Saturday night we would normally have our night time egg hunt only this year we will be at the ballpark so instead we'll have it Sunday night...
which the last time I checked weather is supposed to be gorgeous all weekend so it's gonna really feel like Spring and Easter for us and that makes me very happy!

Well...I know I don't pop in as much as I always plan to but here today with another edition of 4 of a Kind...
and Kim was the hostess and she sent an incredible kit...
full of gorgeous papers and colors...
and one of my all time favorite things that I absolutely can't live without...
coffee!!
I wish I had had more time to spend with this but honestly...I forgot all about it till the other day and between ballgames and a total makeover in the boys' room...
painting, flooring, knockoff PB beds...
I just flat ran out of time!
So here's what I do have...
and hopefully when I get caught up on a few projects around here I can sit down and enjoy some more of this wonderful kit's offerings!

First up is this fabulous tea caddy...

Kim cut and scored these fabulous little ditty's...
all we had to do was assemble.
Now...
I'm not a tea drinker...
unless it's sweet...
over ice...
that's the house wine of the South! *giggle*
But I do have friends that drink tea instead of coffee so it's nice to have this little caddy on hand for when they're over.

Kim sent gorgeous papers with this kit and I'm just gonna tell you...
I hoarded them.
Then I felt guilty so I used this one sheet with this beautiful "hello"...
and a few sequins sprinkled around.

I just loved this sentiment...
Kim had already stamped it on the speech bubble and all I could think was how perfect it would be with some coffee beans so I dug around until I found this old Market Street set with coffee beans and just stamped a few on the bottom.
I think it's the perfect card for a catch up with a coffee loving friend!

And this last one is perfect for a coffee loving friend's birthday...
you could tuck a Starbuck's GC right inside for the perfect gift!

Make sure to stop by and visit 


to see what they were able to come up with.
And as an extra bonus...
we have Tracey from In My Creative Opinion joining us a guest this month...
so make sure to stop and see her gorgeous creations too!

Till next time!
Have a wonderfully Happy Easter!

March 12 Kits

Good morning!
I know...it's been too silent around here lately...
and hopefully I'll find some extra time in the near future to be able to post a little more regularly but at least I'm here today...right?
And since it's the last day of the month you know what that brings...


And this month Kelly was our awesome hostess and she sent a kit that was absolutely to die for...


full of Easter and Spring goodness...
and do you see someone's most favorite color in the whole wide world in the above pic?
YUP!
It has navy...
so you know I hoarded it right? *giggle*
Actually it was an unplanned hoard this month...
my kit decided to take a little detour so I was running short on time and because I'm in the middle of a big project...that I will share eventually I'm just not quite ready yet...
I really just ran out of time and hope to get back to it and do some CASE'ing once I see what everyone else was able to come up with because it IS such an amazing kit full of incredible goodies!
Up first is a super simple little ditty using some of the gorgeous papers and die cuts Kelly included...

Sweet speckled eggs from Waltzingmouse and a little gold tape along with some more gorgeous patterned paper.

OK...I didn't hoard all of the navy *wink*...
and this is favorite this month.  
Kelly sent oodles of die cuts...
including all of these adorable blooms and I couldn't resist just layering them up and creating this simple little number.

And that's all I have so far...
with so much left to be able to CASE...
I can't wait to see what the girls were able to come up with and you're not gonna want to miss it either so head over to the 12 Kits blog HERE where you can see a peek of what they have in store for you...
including our special guest Karen Stein!

Waltzingmouse Release Blog Hop

Hello, Hello!
I know you're ready to just get to ordering this fabulous new set from Waltzingmouse...
Gift Card It...
and all the wonderful dies Claire is releasing right about...
now! *giggle*
And knowing this I won't keep you long...
just one more little project using this much needed set and dies.
Isn't it amazing how Claire knows what we need even before we know what we need? *wink*

WMS Gift Card It and Free Spirit Boy

The main image is from Free Spirit Boy...
I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored in with Copics...
the simple but effective sentiment is from the new Gift Card It.
I wanted to create a card for a teen boy...
not easy to do and quite frankly they could really care less what it looks like...
just what's on the inside...

WMS Gift Card It and Free Spirit Boy


I used a scrap piece of black cardstock to die cut the gift card brackets and then just adhered with some foam tape...
easy and simple...
just what a teen boy wants.

And that's it for me today...
but make sure you visit all the DT for your chance to win a prize!

12 Kits...February Edition


Good morning!
Can you believe February has already come to an end?
I hope it means that spring is right around the corner because this has been the longest, coldest winter I can ever remember and I'm even more ready for spring than I normally am...
which usually on December 26th I'm already looking for it. *giggle*
But even though I am ready for spring...
so ready...
this month's 12 Kit's theme is "Snowblind"...
which is something we haven't seen a lot of this year here in the this part of the South...
snow.
Every where around us got snow...
even further South where it never snows...
but we really didn't get more than a few flurries a few times so this kit is actually the most snow I've seen in a while.

Well...I was hostess this month so I'm just going to give Kara a huge Thank You for the gorgeous pic...
and then show you what I came up with!

Waltzingmouse Gift Card It...Day #3

Good morning!
I'm back again in case you need just a bit more convincing about this incredible new set from Waltzingmouse...
Gift Card It!
And it'll be releasing tomorrow...
along with the coordinating dies and I believe Claire may have a surprise or two up her sleeve. *wink*
You can get all the release details on Claire's blog HERE!

For today Claire challenged to use this gorgeous new set as anything BUT gift card related...
and I know it may be a little early but the large frame that Claire included in this set just made me think Christmas...


WMS Gift Card It

I stamped the frame in SU Garden Green ink (retired) and then colored in with Copic marker.
The berries are included in Gift Card It and I just randomly stamped them around the frame in SU Real Red.
And while there is a holiday sentiment included in Gift Card It...
I needed a larger one so I pulled this one from the gorgeous Alpine Christmas and stamped it in SU Real Red as well.
I adhered this layer to a green card base and then added a satin ribbon.
And while coloring the vine leaves took a tad bit of time...
everything was super easy and came together quickly!

So that's it for me today but you have to go by and see what the rest of the DT was able to come up with...
I know I can't wait to see...


Have a wonderful rest of the day...
and I'll be back tomorrow with our Release Blog Hop!

Waltzingmouse Gift Card It...Day #2

Good morning!
Well...
I have to say that judging by the comments yesterday that all of y'all are lovin' Gift Card It as much as I do...
and I can't wait to show you what else you can do with this incredible set!

I don't know about your house but around here gift cards are something we buy and gift often...
with 4 kids and all the birthday invitations that come along and not knowing what the child may or may not like/have/want...
gift cards are the most sane option...
especially when it comes to teens!
So today I get to show you this perfect little packaging envelope Claire designed...

WMS Gift Card It stamp and die

This is a super simple card...
I used some patterned paper from Carta Bella's new It's a Celebration line to die cut an envelope using the new Gift Card It Envelope die.
I then just used some coordinating cardstock colors to die cut some flags...
I also used the small bracket die in the new Gift Card It dies to cut the gift card bracket on the smallest flag and was then able to just slip the envelope in.
That simple but perfect sentiment is from Gift Card It and I think it's perfect for a guy or a girl!
Love that Claire included a mix of fonts in this set.

WMS Gift Card It stamp and die


See how perfect a gift card fits inside?
It cuts like a dream and is already scored so assembly is a piece of cake...
just a little adhesive.
So whether you're making your own gift card or giving an iTunes to a picky teen...
this little envelope is perfect!

That's it for me today...
but you have to go see what the rest of the DT was able to come up with because I know that will blow you away with this new gem of a set!


I'll see you again tomorrow with even more goodness!

Waltzingmouse Gift Card It Day #1

Good morning!
I'm SO excited to be here this morning to show you some new Waltzingmouse that Claire will be releasing this Friday, the 28th...
and I can't say enough about it because I just love this new set and coordinating dies that Claire has designed and think you are gonna love it too!
And because I'm so excited I'm just gonna get to the goods and show you a peek of Gift Card It!

WMS Gift Card It stamp and die

Eeekkk!!!
Look at those gorgeous blooms!
This set is SO incredible...
has all of these wonderful sentiments that are perfect for not only giving a gift card but also MAKING your own gift card!
And with incredible dies too...
YAY!!
Now you know why I'm so excited about this set! *wink*
For today's card I used the bracketed die that Claire designed...
it cuts and embosses the brackets leaving the perfect spot to slip a gift card underneath.
I stamped the gorgeous cluster of blooms on white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black...
and with a little masking then stamped the small vine stamps included in the set...
which I then colored them all in with Copics.
And look at the gorgeous sentiment...
fits perfectly in the brackets!
I then cut a piece of Berry Sorbet cardstock using the gift card die because...

WMS Gift Card It stamp and die


the Amazon card clashed with my blooms and I wanted to cover it up.*giggle*
But it also gives you a peek at the gift card die too...
it's perfect!
A few seed pearls and then adhering it all to a white cardstock base and it was done!

So that's it for me today but I'll back tomorrow with more and make sure to pop around to all the other DT because I know they are WOW and impress!


Till next time!
