# teacher

I had a great day today, got a lot done in my garden went on a long hike, had my parents over for dinner and even played in my craft room :)

I used the Elle's Studio Cameron and Everyday Moments to create a teacher card.  The dies are from PTI and Technique Tuesday (hashtag one) and I used a SMAK stamp from Unity along with The Learning Curve stamp set from TAWS.


Isn't that worm cute :)  I mounted him with some Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Foam Squares.

I was inspired by this sketch at Retro Sketches:

I was also inspired by this week's challenge at Cupcake Inspiration:

Boy Themed Birthday Cards

I am up on the Scrapbook Adhesive Blog with a couple of boy themed birthday cards.  I ran out of my classroom stash so you just may be seeing more child themed cards in the next little bit :)

I used the Cameron Collection by Elle's Studio - you must know that I love a collection if it more than a year old and I still use it ;)  I have also used a couple dies from My Favorite Things.  Of course adhering my pieces with Scrapbook Adhesives is what makes it go so quickly!







For more details I would love for you to check out the Scrapbook Adhesives Blog!

Welcome to another Unity Blog Hop.  I hope you are leaving comments along the way!


I couldn't wait to ink up the new LOL stamp set for this month French Kiss Life.  I created some little gift bags to hold some handmade soaps.  

I also stamped the Classified Newsprint as an added touch.

Believe in Yourself

I was up on the My Mind's Eye blog the other day with this layout.  I combined a few different collectons (I don't do that very often) - can you guess which ones - bet not ;) ?  Be sure to check out the MME Blog for more information.



I love when I incorporate some of my Unity SMAK kits or LOL kits into my projects, they are the perfect finishing touch and such an easy way to add interest.  I used a few of them on this layout - be sure to check out the Unity Blog for which ones.

Some fussy cut flowers (love to fussy cut) and mounted with the Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives.

Time to be Happy Again

Welcome to another Unity Blog Hop.  Can you believe I created another layout?!  I hope this is the start of many more.  I used the Dear Lizzy Serendipity collection.  Love the mix of colors and patterns in this collection.  It also felt good to add a bunch of my favorite techniques to this layout - stitching, stamping, fussy and die cutting.  I used a few different stamp sets the You can do Anything (SMAK kit - love the coffee stain stamps);  Becoming Who I Am; Time to be Happy Again (both are LOL) and finally the Small Things Matter Most (KOM).  The main title is a Kerri Bradford cut file and the butterfly is from My Favorite Things.


I fussy cut the large flowers and the letter G from some of the pattern paper.  The G is mounted on foam squares (Scrapbook Adhesives) and I like how it is for Grandma and also looks like an arrow pointing to the main sentiment.

Lots of layers, stitching, die cutting and staples...

I even snuck on some washi tape...

Now be sure to hop along and leave comments for your chance at a prize!

Fly Away

I was up on the My Mind's Eye blog yesterday with the new Hello World collection.  When I got the collection I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this photo... document my desire to travel.


I love the bits and pieces that come with the collection, including stickers, post its and rub ons.  But we now also have DIES!  I cut the airplane and filmstrip with these fun dies!  the large title is cut with my Silhouette using a Kerri Bradford file.

I have also used some stamps from Precious Remembrance

and of course some Unity SMAK stamps.  

It felt so good to finally do a layout again.  I hope I have the time and mojo to do another one this weekend :)

For more information you can visit the My Mind's Eye Blog.

Cottage Living Thanks

Wow, a layout yesterday and a card today... most I have scrapped in awhile!  I used the Cottage Living Collection by Pebbles along with a LOL stamp by Unity.  I am really loving fussy cutting, it never gets old :)

I am always needing thank you cards for my hostesses so a thank you card it is.

Garden time with Unity and American Crafts

I was on the Unity Blog a couple of weeks ago and never posted my project.  So here it is.  Once again I used the Dear Lizzy collection because it was still spread all over my desk because I love this collection so much!  I created this for the Inspiration Wednesday post.  How was I inspired?  You will have to head on over to the Unity Blog to see.... it is a beautiful inspiration photo so I would encourage you to see it :)

Scrapbook Adhesives and Bo Bunny Blog Hop Day 4




I am so happy to be hopping along this week with Bo Bunny and Scrapbook Adhesives!  I was sent the Heritage collection by Bo Bunny to work with and I immediately fell in love with the rose paper.


I used my Cricut (Art Philosophy) to cut out a pillow box and then the E-Z Runner to assemble it.  I tucked in some tea and thought this would make a great Mother's Day, thinking of you, friend... little gift.  

Then, you know me and my fussy cutting... 

So I had to cut out the leaves and make a card for dad.  I used my E-Z Runner along with some of the Adhesive Dodz to assemble my card.

I do hope that you have been checking out the Scrapbook Adhesives and Bo Bunny Blog as there is a prize up for grabs.  Be sure to enter each day!
