Up and Away!

I’m back with some goodies to share with you! A few weeks ago, I started to make some party favors for a friend using this great idea I came across online.  The party theme is hot air balloons – so what’s a better party favor than these cuties…


To start, I ordered a bunch of eos chapsticks in a variety pack from Jet.com.  I stamped the hot air balloons and colored them using distress inks and copics! After, I used a circle die cut to make the holes inside the hot air balloon:


TA DA!! I will add some twine to the top of the cards so it will be easy to take and carry! I absolutely love these party favors and think it will be a hit with the guests =)


Oh, and can I tell you all of these eos chapsticks smell delicious! So much so my scottie almost took a bite of out them!





Love Under the Sea

between the fishies, you and me.


Feeling inspired to create.  Love is in the details.

Here Fishie Fishie Fishie!

Wishes from Under the Sea!

I used a new technique for this card. I colored in all my little stamp critters and then applied the Glossy Accents.  Once it was dried I used distress inks to create the underwater background. Love how it turned out!

Chickies Like to Shake Shake It!

So I wanted to try something new…

So I’m shaking things up with shaker cards! My bestfriend sent me an awesome youtube video showing how to make your own shakers and I’m officially obsessed!

I’ve filled this shaker card with beads and star sequins.  I found a great way to store all these goodies along with my other craft essentials and will be sharing that in my next post!

Need A Lift?

Everyone needs a good friend to give them a lift every now and then…

I’m lucky to have the best-est friends and family ever! This post is dedicated to them!
