Scrappy Mom's December Release

Good Morning Everyone and Happy Friday!  I'm sure everyone is looking forward to the weekend as there are only a few more days until old St. Nick comes to visit :)  This year is super special in our home as it is Kirie's 1st Christmas.  

I'm sure you are all ready for some more Scrappy Mom Stamps!  Here is a look at their 2 new fabulous sets: 

I think the Made with Love set is perfect for any paper crafter to stamp the back of their creations! 

For this years christmas cards, we used a photo of Kirie that I had taken.  The sentiment on the front of the card is from Scrappy Mom's A Holiday to Remember.  One the back I used one of the stamps from Made with Love.  Check it out below:

Hope you guys enjoyed!  Be sure to check out the other designers creations with these 2 new stamp sets by clicking on their names in the right sidebar!

Scrappy Mom's TTC

Hey Everyone!  I hope that your all doing well.  At my house, its a bit crazy.  We have just taken all of the decorations down for Christmas.  We are going to start putting them up this week.  For Thanksgiving, our friends are having us over for the Holiday.  Its so great to have a 'military family' when your family is not around for the holidays :)  And then on Sunday all of my in-laws, mother, father, brothers, sister, and their other half, will be over for our family Thanksgiving Celebration.  To say I'm a wee bit nervous, is an understatement.  I normally only cook for my brother-in-laws and husband and they will eat anything but there will be a lot more people here this time around.  However, I'm looking forward to it and its Kirie's' 1st Thanksgiving!  If I have any advice on cooking a Turkey, i've only done it once but it turned out fantastic, its to cook your turkey UPSIDE DOWN!  Yes, you heard me right.....It keeps the turkey so absolutely juicy, that you really don't need any gravy for it! 

Ok, onto what your really here for!  Its another Scrappy Mom's Terrific Tuesday Challenge!   This weeks challenge is called Cuddly Critter!  That's right, pull out those beloved Create a Critter 1 & 2  or if you do not have the cartridges, you can use a svg cut or your silhouette to join in on the fun! 

I absolutely love this sentiment from Critter Crazy and had this idea since I saw the sentiment so here is my card: 

Hope you guys enjoyed it!  Be sure to check out the other absolutely adorable creations by the Scrappy Mom Design Team by heading over to the Scrappy Mom Blog!

Scrappy Mom's Terrific Tuesday Challenge

Hey Everyone!

I hope that you are all enjoying the Fall weather!  Here in Florida, the temperature drop has been feeling great!  Although its still 77, it feels fantastic :)

Glad you stopped by for another Scrappy Mom's TTC!  Today's challenge is called "Teddy Bear Picnic".  For this challenge, you simply need to use a bear cut out!  

For my card, I used the Cricut Lite Live Simply Cartridge.  I just love this little bear!  And I think the sentiment goes just perfectly with it (from the Happy Campers Set).  I think this may be one of my absolute favorite cards!

I have recently been having trouble with combining colors.  So when that happens, I just turn to my trusty Color Coach from Stampin' Up!  The paper used above are not all from Stampin' Up!, however, the color coach can provide you with some guidelines when your in a pickle about matching up colors.  

Hope that you guys enjoyed the card!  Be sure to check out the other designers projects by simply clicking on their name in the right side bar.  

ALSO.....Scrappy Mom's is having a Guest Designer Call!  Here is your chance to get a sneak peak at a Stamp Set and join us during Release Week in showing off the stamps with your projects! The call is only until Saturday, November 10th!  SO be sure to submit your projects.  You can find all of the information on the Scrappy Mom's Blog by clicking HERE!

Scrappy Mom Sneak Peak

Hello Everyone!

We are finally Home Sweet Home :)  As much as we enjoyed our trip and seeing all of our family and friends...we missed being in our home.  

Anyways, now that I'm finally home I can show you my cards that I have created for the Scrappy Mom's Sneak Peak!!

The card that I made is inspired by Amy R.  If you are not familiar with her, you should absolutely check out her cards as they are fantastic!  She recently made a video explaining how she picks our her pattern paper, which is always a struggle for me.  I always feel like I don't have enough or too much.  You can find the video by clicking HERE.  

So here is my card 

I heat embossed the Happy Birthday from the stamp set From the Inside Out.  

Hope that you guys enjoy!  Be sure to checkout the other fabulous projected created by the design team!

Scrappy Mom's Release!!!

Hey Everyone!!

Happy Friday! I hope that you have all had a good week. We are current on our way back to the Sunshine state from our 2 week road trip. And lucky for me I acquired a cold while in Canada :( oh well, it was worth it.

If you haven't heard, Scrappy Mom's have released 2 new stamp sets!! And these are ones you do not want to pass up. Just take a look at them below:

Pick of the Patch is just perfect for the fall season and From the Inside Out will help you add the perfect wording to the inside of your card!

I foolishly forgot to take a photo of my projects before leaving for my trip so it will be a couple days before I can share them with you. But be sure to check out the other Scrappy Mom designers for adorable projects using these stamps! Simply click on their name from the right sidebar.

Another Scrappy Mom's TTC!

Hey Everyone!!

I hope that your having a fabulous week!  The hubby, baby, cat, dog, and myself have arrived to Jersey to begin our vacation. Let the 2 week adventure begin!!

Today is another fabulous Scrappy Mom's Terrific Tuesday Challenge.  

For today's challenge we have to use our favorite Cricut Cartridge.  One of my absolute favorites that I go to often is the Sweethearts Cartridge.  Its just perfect for wedding, engagement, anniversary, etc.  

So, I thought I'd use it to make a wedding card for my best friend who is getting married in NYC this weekend!  To make it a bit more fitting for a wedding, I decided to add tulle to it and think it added the perfect touch! 

I used the sentiment "Love is in the Air" from the Scrappy Mom's Stamp Love Notes.  

Hope you guys enjoyed the card!  Be sure to check out the Scrappy Mom's Blog to see the other amazing projects by the Scrappy Mom's design team!

Another Scrappy Mom's Goosebumps Project!

Hello Everyone!!

I hope that you had a fabulous weekend!! Happy Monday!

Today, I have another Goosebump project for you!  I had it prepared for Sneak Peak last week but accidentally forgot to post it.  

So here it is!  I kept it really simple and old cutting machines.  Just paper and punches :)  Sometimes I just love these simple cards!

Scrappy Mom's Sneak Peak #2

Hey Everyone!

I hope that you all have enjoyed your weekend and all of the sneak peaks by the Scrappy Mom's Design Team!

I'm here today with another Sneak Peak for Goosebumps.  If you haven't seen the stamp set yet...check it out below. 

And here is my project for today: 

For my card, I used 3 Birds on Parade Cartridge.  The patterned paper is from an older Martha Stewart paper pack that was released a couple years ago.  Although I'm a paper hoarder, i've been motivated lately to use some of my stash that I'm OH SO attached to :)  

Be sure to check out the rest of the designers projects and take advantage of the END OF SUMMER sale going on at Scrappy Mom's Stamps.

Scrappy Mom's Goosebumps Release!

Hey Everyone!!

I hope that you guys are having a great week! I know I'm looking forward to the weekend.  Even though I'm now a stay at home mom, I love spending time with the baby and hubby on the weekends :) 

Today Scrappy Mom's is releasing their new stamp set called Goosebumps!  It is absolutely PERFECT for Halloween which is right around the corner...crazy to think that summer is over already!

Take a look at it below: 

Want, or as I would say...Need, this stamp set?!?!  Great News! Scrappy Mom's is having an End of Summer sale from Today (Sept 7) to Sunday (Sept. 16) for FREE SHIPPING!!! So be sure to order your stamp set!!

For my project, I decided to do a funky shape card.  When I think of halloween, i think of fun/wonky shapes....thus my inspiration for card base.  I kept this card simple and I like the clean look it has.  Hope you guys enjoy the project!

Scrappy Mom's TTC

For those of you still reading my rather sparse blog...HELLO and thanks for sticking around :) 

I hope that you all are doing well and have been enjoying the end of the summer.  Here in Florida the kids just started school, which is weird to me as up north you start in September.  Before we all know it...Fall will be here :)  

It has been 6 weeks since Kirie was born and although it has been rough at times ((still getting use to the new mom role)) she is absolutely amazing.  Sorry but I must show her off :) 

Here she is just a few weeks old....I did her newborn photo shoot and think it turned out quite well :) 

It feels great to be back in my craft corner!  My husband has so graciously donated another corner of our office den area for my obsession with paper and its nice to have more room to be organized and get stuff done.  

Anyways...on to the real reason as to why you all are here Scrappy Mom's Terrific Tuesday Challenge!    For this weeks challenge its all about "Back To School";  perfect timing!  

For todays project, I made mini cards (3x4) for teachers to give to a student.  I used a file on the silhouette studios to create the envelopes and just made mini cards to fit within them.  

For the cards, I used the Simply Charmed cartridge and the sentiments are from Scrappy Mom's School Days Set.  

Hope you guys have enjoyed this! Be sure to checkout the other design team projects at the Scrappy Mom's Blog.  

ALSO: This Friday, Scrappy Mom's will be releasing another FABULOUS stamp set.  Be sure to check back for sneak peeks of the set, as well as on the other design teams blogs.

Sneak Peak 3 & 4 for Scrappy Mom's!!

Hey Everyone!!

Sorry for the delayed post with my projects showing off the great stan set Proudly Canadian by Scrappy Mom's! 

I have 2 projects for you today showing this stamp set.

First let me say that if you have never tried Poutine, you must try it at least once!!!  I was unsure about it the first time I tried it but I have grown to LOVE it!!!  
And its simply french fries, gravy, and cheese --- 0 calories ;)  

The last time my Mother in law was down visiting from Canada she brought us a TON of sauce mix packets! So I thought i'd make a little holder to give some to my brother-in-laws who also love this stuff.  

For my second project, I thought about using the stamp in a different way.  I chose to use "Double Double" which is usually how someone would order their coffee.  

Well, since it was my last week at work, I had to bake for the office (and it gave me an excuse to try a new recipe).  So I made a cupcake recipe that I found on pinterest called "Death by Oreo".  Its has tons of delicious oreo in it!  You MUST try the recipe.  So I decided to add a tag around the cupcake holders.  

Hope you guys enjoyed the sneak peaks!!!  

My blog may be a bit of a ghost town for the next 1-2 months.....until I get a schedule down with our precious new addition to the family :)

Hello everyone... Hope your having a great week.

I'm here with sneak peak number 2 for Scrappy Mom's release.
I just can't get enough of Mom's Diner stamp set. It can be used so many ways.

For my card, I decided to use my Silhouette. I was unsure about how I felt about the image at first but it's growing on me :).

Scrappy Mom's New Release!!!

Hey Everyone!!

Thank goodness it is Friday!!  I don't know about y'all but I am so ready for the weekend!  I feel like I have so much to do in so little time.  Baby Kirie will be here in 3 weeks and there is just so much to get in order.  

Speaking of baby Kirie, I was on a roll of completing my first project for the new stamp release and she decided that we stretch out to make me so uncomfortable that I wasn't able to finish my project :/  Unfortunately, her being breeched and just about 6 lbs. is not helping the pressure on my rips as her head and feet like to push on them quite often. 

So I apologize for not having a completed project ready for you today.  I promise to have one for you tomorrow and more sneak peaks throughout the week.  

How bout a look at the 2 new stamp sets!  I think they are absolutely fabulous!! 

The 'Proudly Canadian' is perfect for me, as my husband and his family are from Canada.  And Mom's Diner is so versatile!

Hey Everyone!

Hope that you have been having a great start of the week.  I'm back to show Sneak Peak #2 with Scrappy Mom's new release.  

Although I love using my Cricut and Cameo, I miss just simply I went back to stamping for this card.

Happy Saturday Everyone!!!

Hope you guys are having a great weekend.... I know I'm certainly enjoying it with the cool weather here in Florida :).
Anywho.... scrappy Mom's has release 2 must have sets! Check them out below...

Aren't they adorable? Mini Messages are a must for the projects that need a smaller sentiment and who doesn't love Owl's!!!!

So I have been super busy lately creating..... Haven't been posting as I'm mass producing baby shower invitations. I'm so excited to announce that my hubby and I are expecting our first baby in July! :). Hence the MIA lately due to the 1st trimester great feel :D. But now my energy level is back up and I feel great!

So for today's sneak peak... I wanted to show off the mini message stamp set on the Thank You's I've been creating. I only have 2 months till the shower so i' m trying to get everything done sooner than later. The theme is bumble bee :).

They're mini milk cartons that will be filled with M&M's! I cut my Thank You stamp set in half so that it could fit in the circle.

Scrappy Mom's TTC!!

Hey everyone!

It's that time of the month.... Scrappy Mom's Terrific Tuesday Challenge!

For this week, the challenge is to use a heart as the main part of the project.

This weekend I was browsing blogs for inspiration and came across this idea. Unfortunately I cannot remember the blog name to give them credit but if I come across it... I will certainly post it. Now that blogger used sprinkles, however I was out of sprinkles so I used Red Sugar Crystals. And it's just so easy to do!

Makes a shaker card!!! Just use some window sheets and super strong adhesive!

Hope you enjoyed this project! Be sure that you check out the other scrappy mom designers from the scrappy mom blog by clicking the button on the right sidebar.

Scrappy Mom's Sneak Peak 2 & 3

Hey everyone!!

I hope you are enjoying your weekend! I just realized that I never posted my 2 cards that I made last weekend using the new Crazy for you! So here they both are:

Used the Sweet Treats cartridge for the cake slice with some stickles and Scrappy Mom's Twine

For this card I wanted it simply and for the biggest heart to stand out.  The heart stamp is from the Crazy for You Stamp set and the extra hearts are punches.  Also used the double Scrappy Mom's Twine again :) 

Don't forget to checkout the other design teams wonderful projects by clicking on their name in the sidebar.
