Hello everyone, Today over at Practical Scrappers we are doing a great card sketch, please check  out the DT take on this wonderful sketch.


below is the sketch and my take on it. Hope everyone has a crafty day!!!

Check out this wonderful spin on a jewelry hanger, a tennis racquet!! How cute is that?? I thought of my niece when I created this. All supplies were from ScrappinSportsStuff.  They have everything you can think of, this store is amazing!!!

Doing the happy dance… My card made it to the top 16, I am so excited. ¬†Please go check out all the amazing ladies. It was such an amazing group that they could not decide on just 15 so they switched it to top 16. Please show your support and go vote for your favorite. ¬†Check it out here


Here is my entry… you had to take inspiration from a beautiful quilt.




I hope everyone is loving this day of love!!  Today over at Practical Scrappers we are doing  Pinterest Inspired Valentine Projects, go check it out not to late to make that special someone, something special!!!


Here is my take on it- I was¬†inspired by this Valentine Wreath from¬†She’s Kinda Crafty¬†blog and created ¬†a cute Valentine Frame out of pattern paper.



So I have had this stamp for a while and well after this weekend I need a new motto.  Melinda from S.W.A.T showed how to make this awesome rosette it is so fun and easy to make.  Honestly I cheated, I did not want to wait for glue to dry so I punched  my circle and filled it full of glue dots:) lets just say next time I am  buying the XL ones!!  So check it out  (here) and try it for yourself and please post up if you make one, we would love to see your creation.

Happy Birthday to one of the greatest ladies in my life, my GRANDMA!! She has to be the strongest woman I know, I know where my mom gets it from!! Well we did not live close to each other and did not get to spend nearly as much time together as I would have wanted but I have such good¬†memories¬†of us together. ¬†She is the worlds best crafter, I know where I get my talent from. She was an amazing lady, the stories I could share! I will share two things with you, the card I made her for her birthday and the reason behind it. ¬†It is a star fold or something like that not really sure, I made it because it was unique, just as she is, first ever card I made with this fold. It is done in all sewing papers because my grandma is the one that taught me how to sew. I remember we went to pick out fabric and ¬†a pattern. I picked a skirt for my first project she was unsure because zippers are tricky but I was like I can so do this:) And I did… my grandma said it was the best job she had ever seen and was so excited, until we noticed that the zipper was backwards. I think we both wanted to cry, I remember her telling me that It will never look as good as it did. She was right! But we fixed it and I had a skirt. ¬†So I learned how to seam rip that day to I guess. I want to say I was 9, not 100% sure….. But what I do know is, I love and miss her very much and hope she a wonderful birthday!!! ¬†Here is the card I sent her, HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDMA!!

Drill: All about Me!!

Our first Drill for S.W.A.T. is a full page layout all about YOU!!! That’s not all, they have a prize up for grabs. So find photos you love, like or even hate and scrap them… they all have a story to tell so tell it about you.

This was a hard layout for me, but I am glad I did it. I never think to scrap about myself so this was fun. I used papers and brads to reflect what I like or what is about me… I picked orange for crafter cause my scrapbook room is orange. ¬†So its the little things that made this layout fun. Most of the papers were sitting in my stash waiting to be used.



Thanks for stopping by- Janice
