Altered Notebook

Hey everybody!!
Hope you're havin' a great day. The project I have to share with ya today is an altered notebook. It's for my niece who'll be turning 9 next month. She loves to write. So this will be perfect for her.

I used all Melissa Frances papers. The little tags I made out of some MF stickers. I hope she loves it!! These are so fun to make and are such a neat gift to give. I got the notebooks at Menards for .75 cents a piece. Cool!

Thanks for stopping by.

Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge ~ Ledger/Notebook Paper

Hi guys,
*sigh* This is my last entry as a design team member for Frosted Designs. My term is over with this submission and I must say it makes me a little sad. I have so enjoyed working with all of the girls over there. They are so thoughtful, talented, and very organized which is such a plus, and I feel like I have made some real friends on this 6 month journey. I'm going to miss working with you guys!

But... with that said I will certainly be joining in the challenges. Especially with their new card challenges. Whooo Hooo right up my alley! Thank you Barb for being such a fabulous team leader!

Ok... on to my project!
This challenge is a little bit tricky this week. You must use ledger or notebook paper somewhere on your project. Well I decided to alter a notebook pad. heehee How fun! The idea was given to me by my dear friend Kate. She made a few of these for her family as a gift. And I loved the idea. Not too mention I was struggling with what to do for my project this week. Thanks Kate!!

School is in session here. It's my sons 2nd day of 5th grade. *ugh* when did that happen? He's so nervous that he isn't going to do well. Hello... he did fabulous in 4th grade and so he will do great things this year too! I hope I can jump start his confidence this weekend with a few tasks that he will be great at. Other than that our weekend looks to be pretty calm.

Thanks for spending some of your free time with me today.
Hope to see you again soon.
Wishes for a great day!

My birthday gifts

Yesterday was my birthday!!
It was a gorgeous day outside the entire day.
I could not have ordered a more perfect birthday.
My two guys spoiled me rotten and gave me this amazing necklace and ring in my birthstone.

We just got back from spending a week in Chicago.
It was pure heaven and I am having withdrawals already.
Best vacation we have ever had.

But... it's time to get down to business and get crafting.
I'll have new things to share soon!

Thank U!

Hey everybody!!
I sure hope you are enjoying these last weeks of summer. This has been such a wonderful summer. So much fun has been had that I am sad to feel a little cooler air these days.

The card I have to share with you today came about with me entering a challenge to use letters.

I love these typeset letters and bubbles from Tim Holtz. So super cool!! Paired with some Graphic 45 papers and whola' perfection! This is going to be a fun card to give. ~:0)

Thank you so much for spending some time viewing my blog.
I *puffy heart* my followers.
Wishes for a great day!

Shabby Goodness!

Hey guys!!
How's your day goin'?
I have a little something yummy to share with all of you today.
Prima, Tim Holtz, Melissa Frances Oh My!!

This is one of those projects for me that kept pulling me in. Every time I thought it was enough another little trinket would pop out yelling "Use me... Use me". It's easy to want to use all of your supplies when you are working with these three manufacturers.

Thanks so much for coming by to see me.
Wishes for a great day!

Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge ~ Animals

It's Friday and time for a challenge over at Frosted Designs.
This week's challenge is the theme "Animals". Your project must have an animal on it somewhere.

For my card I used this cute stamp set from SU. I have been wanting to use this whale for awhile now. I decided to make a baby boy birthday card!! Saying my Nephew is going to be turning 1 soon I'll be saving this card for him.

I used all Melissa Frances papers, and a new item I purchased called Liquid Pearls. They are so cool and add so much dimension to your projects. I got mine from A Cherry On Top!

I hope you have a fabby weekend.
Thanks for stopping by!

Shabby Chic Tin

Hey guys!!
I hope this post finds you all doing well and enjoying your summer. :) I have a baby girl tin to share with all of you today. These tins I make for my clients and are sold on my website KW Design Handmade. The tin holds 24 index cards. Two for each month of babies first year. One card holds a picture and the other a small journaling area.

The inside of the tin is decorated as well.

The top was so fun to stamp. I used crumb cake SU ink and an SU stamp set called Bliss.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Wishes for a great day!

My new goodies!

Hey Guys!!
How's your summer going?
Did I mention that I went to Archivers for my very first time? Yep... sure did. And it was phenomenal! I went a little crazy with my purchases. Caught myself hyper ventilating a few times. *giggle* It was soooo much fun. So... here is a card made with some of my new goodies.

Have you been beating the heat? I sure hope so. Things are supposed to get a little better temp wise on Wednesday for us. Yay!! This humidity is something else. It's all you can do to breathe. LOL Stay cool!

Thanks for stopping by!
Wishes for a great week.
