Papertrey in Real Life

L-R Cheryl, Joan B., Jennifer
Today I got to take a mini vacation to Jennifer's house to stamp all afternoon! It was so much fun to stamp all day and spend time with some fellow Papertrey Ink fan(atic)s like myself who live in the area. I also got to meet Joan B., who is so delightful. We had a wonderful lunch and a nice, relaxing stamping afternoon. Thank you so much, Jennifer, for opening your most beautiful home to us and for the wonderful treats, too.

P.S. I have finally found the sheepdog I need to round up my children in public places...

  1. I had a lot of fun too. What a treat.

  2. Look at that wiggly worm of a dog! Can't tell that he doesn't like being held, can you?!

    I can't tell you just how fantastic of a time that I had. Thanks so much for coming over. We're going to have to do it again soon.

National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop

Hello, friends!  I am honored to be a part of the National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop with Right at Home Stamps.  Hopefully you've come from Linda's blog.

We are celebrating our hobby of papercrafting by bringing our community together and spending a day doing what we love.  Come hop with all of us, leave comments along the way, and you will be entered to win this awesome stamp set:

It's called "Make Something Beautiful", and it is being released today.  It's so fun to have a stamp set that is dedicated to our love of all things crafty--scrapbooking, painting, cardmaking, sewing, and any and all combinations of the above.  Here are two cards I've made with this set.  Those tools begged to be paper-pieced with some sparkly silver paper!

For this one I heat embossed the images in white on navy cardstock, as well as fussy cutting the tools out of the silver paper.  Then I used a Copic marker to shade the hearts and sentiment in red for a pop of color.

Papertrey Blog Hop-March

It has been a long time, but I thought I'd jump back in to the Papertrey Blog Hop this month.  I couldn't resist creating something with these beautiful patterns as inspiration.

Here's my take on it:

I used the Anniversary Set: Painted Petals, a combination of heat embossing, coloring with Copics on that heat embossing, fussy cutting and die cutting.  Very fun.
PTI White and Dark Indigo cardstock Ink: Versamark, Copics, PTI Hawaiian Shores, Blueberry Sky, Raspberry Fizz, Lovely Lady, HA Navy

Do it anyway.

Oh how much I've needed to hear this all week.  
Thank you to Beth for a very insightful and thought-provoking post.  More cards to come soon.
