WOW Projects

This was a card using the thick window sheets and Just Jawing Stamp set. We used White Staz on and a little chunky glitter. I love how this one turned out!

Why oh Why? I'm not sure why these keep going on sideways. I have turned them every way and then when I upload them onto here they are sideways? Help me if you can! This was a layout I did for my son Gavin when he got his library card. He reads sooooo much, so we go to the library each week to stock up of books. I used Circle Circus and we did the Burnishing on glossy white paper.

WOW Projects

Here are some of the WOW cards we have made. These projects are always so much fun!
This may just look like another beautiful card on the outside, but when it get a pop up surprise! We used the Look Here Big Shot die for the Big Shot. Very simple, but a huge WOW!

We used chipboard and designer series paper on this one.

Bleach is the technique used here.

Wow Projects

These layouts were from several months back. WOW class meets the first Friday of each month at Heartland Ham at 6PM. We make a WOW layout and WOW card. I consider WOW to be a cool technique or tons of cool product used on the projects. We would love for you to join us! Cost is $20 or FREE with a $25 purchase.

We used the SO Tweet chipboard on this layout.

Stencils were used here. So elegant!

Decor Elements Tour

I LOVE LOVE LOVE our line of decor elements! To see our Definitely Decorative catalog, click HERE. They are SUPER easy to put up. My 7 year old boys love helping me and if they don't go on right the first time, we just pull it up and try again. You have got to get some!!!

In my bathroom I used the Together Forever Circle Frame in chocolate (114112) & Classic Alphabet letter in chocolate on a mirror above my bathtub.

This is a set of decor elements that are no longer available, but I had to show you how I updated my daughter's bathroom cabinets.

In our baby's room I used the Large chocoate Lollipop flower stems (114113)& Ginormous Flowers II (114863) to make long stemmed flowers around her room.

Above Lyla's changing table... I only used the outside of the Chocolate Flourish Frame(114111) & filled it with the Classic Alphabet letters in chocolate. I saved the inside portion of the frame for another project.

More Large chocoate Lollipop flower stems (114113)& Ginormous Flowers II (114863)

These were level I hostess flowers that I saved up to decorate a cheap shelf and trash can.

I love the Black Birdcage - FREE level 3 hostess set (117414) and placed it in my dining room. I would love 2 more to place here in different heights.

Aren't these little All In the Family people cute? I added them to our "catch all/calendar" beside our laundry room & back door.

This is above our pantry in the kitchen... Large Chocolate EAT (117854)

Founders Swap

So the Founders Circle trip is next week and I have 125 swaps to make. I designed a card using the new Build-a-Bear and it's so cute. However, I knew they would never get made unless I got help. Thank you Nancy, Wendy, Sam, Dara & Tori for spending time on my swaps. Y'all are the best!!!

Getting back in the Groove

So we had our 3rd child - a baby girl named Lyla. She is now 3 months old and I cannot say I'm totally with it (never was), but I am trying to get back into the swing of things. I'm going to try my best to update my blog more often, so here goes.

I want to share some cute little cupcakes that my downline, Joy Hadden made. They are so cute! She made these for her grandson's 1st birthday party. Thank you Joy for sharing these!
