Thank You and Say Cheese!

I made this card for my bff in the hopes that I could convince her to use embossing paste! It’s so fun!


For some reason, I ended up doing a camera theme for all these cards! Totally not planned.  So for the chevron background I colored the embossing paste with distress inks and carefully applied it to the stencil.


I love how the embossing paste gives the card such beautiful dimension! Then I sprinkled on some clear glitter and allowed it to dry for about 30 to 40 minutes. The camera and sentiment are from the Silhouette store and the mini Polaroid is from Papertrey Ink.   For the sentiment, I did the same technique where I added layers of clear embossing paste to make it nice and shiny.


For the final touches, I added a little wink of stella to the camera and enamels dots in silver and white! Embossing paste – you rock!

Scottie Selfie!

Even sleepy Scotties need to take a selfie…hehe!


After a weekend filled with dog beaches, long walks, and doggie bakeries…My Scotties were super sleepy on the car ride home! lol! Caught them snoozing away on my lap! They are so sweet!

thank you scottie1

I made several thank you cards for all the wonderful friends and family in my life! As you can see, I am still hooked on the Scottie nautical theme!

I just love the little anchors and the sail boat! The Paper Smooches sentiment was perfect for these cards!

Thank you for all the love! Muah!

Thanks from your favorite neighborhood cats!


A request to make a thank you for a cat-lover.  I really love the polkadot background paper that I used as a border. It really gives a pop of color to our furry little friends!

Thank You Bugs!

Thanks from not just any bug but a cute lady bug!

My best friend took me to a wonderful stamp store and we found this absolutely adorable stamp!

The grass looked a little empty so I added pebbles in the second photo and I like how it turned out.  For some finally touches I used stickles and bling for each of the flowers. I also sprayed the sky with shimmer sparkle spray but it’s hard to tell from the picture!

Hope you have a great labor day weekend!
