Paper Crafter’s Library March Projects

Hello guys!
As promised I have a few projects to share with you all today. I hope you are enjoying the wonderful warmth we are all getting. We have mosquito's up north already!! It's so crazy! I think we are opening up our pool in 2 weeks. Usually that doesn't happen until late May. Hey, one more month of pool time is fine with me!!

So, the first project I have to share with you guys is this adorable decorated box. The box is from Stampin Up! It is so fun to decorate and give a way. It's super simple to make. But if you would like to see just how there is a pdf and a video on how I made this over at Paper Crafter's Library.

Do you guys use these cute clothes pins to hold your work? Look how cute they are all decked out in beautiful embellishments. I actually have 3 of these including this one in my studio holding various cards. They are a really nice accent to my work. So if you have a few lying around why not give it a go?

These nugget tins are a fave of mine. So fun and easy to make. I am really loving this super pale turquoise and purple together. All of the supplies and how to's are avail in the member's section over at Paper Crafter's Library.

Thanks for taking a peek. Enjoy the weather.
Wishes for a great day!

Kindness Matters

The card I have to share with you today is for a challenge to use doilies. I love using doilies but find I don't add them very often. They add such a sweet texture and dimension to projects. Note to self... buy more doilies!

These Prima flowers are to seriously die for... right? OMG are they amazing. Note to self... buy more Prima! heehee You get the picture. Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a fabulous day!

Queen For a Day!

Q is Queen for a day! Heehee What a fun card this was to make! The challenge was to design a card using black, white, and one other color only. My favorite color right now is this soft pale turquoise blue. Luva it! And doesn't it look wonderful with black and white? Such a cool combo.

I am recovering from the dentist today. Spent 3 1/2 hours in the chair! Ugh... that's why I hate going to the dentist. They always find all these things wrong and say they need to be fixed right away!! That drill sound is still ringing in my ears. Yuck! But it's nothing that a little paper and scissors can't cure ~:0)

Thanks for popping in guys! Wishes for a great day!

JustWordz Blog Hop

JustWordz Blog Hop!!

Welcome everyone to the JustWordz blog hop. Today we are celebrating the end of term for the JustWordz DT which I have been a very happy member of :) The girls have put together some show stoppers for our hop today so make sure you hop on over to them all. There's candy too! But you must comment on every DT members blog for you to be entered into the drawing to win a JustWordz stamp set and one digi stamp from Redonkulous.

My card for the hop is a very sweet spring like card. I am loving these new papers from SU. Right up my alley. When paired with this yummy bow you have a recipe for success!! When you get a paper collection and love so many of the papers don't hesitate to use 3 or 4 different pieces of designed paper. As long as the colors can be picked up in another... you're good to go.

It's been a pleasure working with Kim from JustWordz stamps. I have really loved using her stamps for the last few months. The rest of the DT are so talented and each one of them inspired me each week! JustWordz is having a sale on their stamps until the end of the month. Buy one get one free!! Now's the time to buy guys.

Ok so... it's time to hop on over to HEATHER.
Here is a list of blogs on the hop incase you get lost along the way.
