AWW-World of Dreams


Welcome beck to another July AWW blog hop! Be sure to stop by ALL 10 of the Artisan's blogs so you don't miss a thing! I want to tell you ALL about what an AMAZING time I had at convention last week, and how much I loved meeting these amazing ladies, but since I am short on time, I will be doing that later this week. . . and sharing some of my samples I created for the Display Boards. Some of the others are already on top of it and are sharing, so be sure to search their blogs for Convention Display Boards 2014 to see all of their breathtaking work! I have a blog roll at the end of this post for all of the Display Stampers Blogs, there were 25 of us, and we each created 24 samples, so that is a TON of crafty goodness for you to check out!

okay, on for tonight's project. . .


I gotta tell ya, I am LOVING the new Cotton Ribbon! The texture is amazing, and it comes in some fabulous colors! Better yet, get it in Whisper White and use your reinker to color it any color you want! Seriously. . . best thing since seam binding!

Okay, lets' head over In The Cat Cave and see what my girl Cathy's been up too!

Enjoy the Adventure Ahead!


As I was creating the project for tonight's post (which doubled as my convention swap for all my 2013 ADT besties) reality hit that we are quickly closing in on our last 2013 Artisan Design Team Blog Hop post. Over the course of the year I have had quite the adventure getting to know these amazing ladies! And although we all will be taking on new endeavors, (some will return to the team, some are being published in magazines, some are focusing more on their families). . . whatever our new adventures may be, I know we will always be here for each other to offer love, support, and friendship for life!

So. . . here's to my very own "pocket ADT team", may you all enjoy your new adventures ahead, whatever they may be! Love you all!


Now, let's head In The Cat Cave and see what my friend Cathy has been up to!

Hello Darling

Welcome to another Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Be sure to stop by all 10 of the team's blogs so you don't miss out on any of the crafty goodness!

My week has been super crazy, I'm still not sure how I survived! But, I did manage to get a card made for tonight's hop. . . It is also Nate and my 14 year wedding anniversary! Perhaps I should have made him a card. . . I really should have thought this out. . . Oh well. On to tonight's creation!

I used the Hello Darling stamp set. Super cute set, endless possibilities! I chose to use my Crushed Curry embossing powder to heat emboss a subtle floral background. Then I sponged around the edge to add some definition. I added some "junk"(i.e. embellishments) and stitching.


Now I just need to get my convention swaps done. . . HAHAHAHAHA! Yes, I am that behind!

Let's move on and visit Cathy In The Cat Cave! I'm sure she's been up to something fun!

Super trendy faux enamels dots. . . make them in any color!
