ODBD Design Team (July-Week 3)

Here's my third and final project using product from Our Daily Bread Designs July 2018 Release. The product in this release is amazing! I will, without a doubt, reach for them over and over again! Be sure to check out the entire July 2018 Release here.

And lets talk paper for a second! Have you seen the paper?! The paper I used in my projects is not part of the July Release but I would be amiss if I did not give it a shout out! I have always been a huge fan of ODBD Pattern Paper! I mean, what's not to love? It is absolutely gorgeous! It makes creating gorgeous projects effortless because it does all the work for you! I mean look at these cards!

I'm working through some technical difficulties so no video tutorial but, I promise to be up and running (consistently) in the video tutorial department real soon! In the meantime, I provide step-by-step instructions along with the complete supply list so that you can create these gorgeous cards at home.

And now... join me in my craft room and be inspired to transform paper into a little work of art.

ODBD Design Team (July-Week 1)

It feels great to be back! It's been a really long time! About four months to be exact! A lot has happened in that time. The most significant change you will notice, here on my blog, is that I am no longer with Stampin' Up! I absolutely love Stampin' Up! but the time required to be the best demonstrator for my customers was no longer easy to come by. So, for that reason, I chose to step down. Even though it was a sad decision, it brings me so much joy knowing that my amazing customers have found amazing new demonstrators! So, please join me on my creative journey as I continue to create and share my projects with you!

Right out the gate, I am excited to announce that I have been invited to be a Guest Designer for Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) during the months July and August!

The July 2018 Release is all about hugs and faith and today's projects are perfect for encouraging and reminding people that God loves them!

And now... join me in my craft room and be inspired to transform paper into a little work of art.



Project One (Stand Firm in Your Faith)

For my first project I used ODBD's Walk by Faith Stamp/Die Duos. With everything happening in the world, it is way too easy to lose sight of the things of heaven and to become consumed with things of the world! This set reminds me to, always, stay grounded in my Faith! I will, not doubt, reach for this set over and over again. Scroll down for the complete list of supplies.



Project Two (Hugs & Kisses)

For my second project I used ODBD's Hugs Stamp/Die Duos. This set will, definitely, bring a smile to someone's day because who doesn't like hugs & kisses, right? Scroll down for complete list of supplies.



Please be sure to contact me if you have any questions about today's project or any of the supplies I used.

    Happy Valentine's Day to Some Amazing Teachers

    Teachers play a crucial role in shaping and enriching the minds of children. My family has been fortunate enough to have been blessed with amazing teachers who genuinely care and devote themselves to helping our boys reach their full potential every single day.

    "A great teacher is like a candle: it consumes itself to light the way for others." ~Anonymous

    For today's project, I used the Sure Do Love You Bundle to create Valentine's Day cards as a small token of my appreciation for the amazing teachers in our lives.

    I hope today's project inspires you to transform paper into a little work of art.
