FWF Hot Summer!

It was HOT yesterday! The temps didn't go under 99 until a while after the sun set. Ick! Just like during a bad snowstorm, we hunkered down in the house and played. Today is supposed to be in the upper 90's again. We'll see how the little bit of rain we are "supposed" to get help cool things off. I got some HAPPY MAIL from Unity with the set I used to create this. (I will be uploading a video with this haul today!)

Anyhow, here are the cards I created this week. They all had to be popped in the mail quickly. I can't believe they are not setting around my craft room, but am glad they have a new home!

Thanks to everyone who has been checking out my Summer Cleaning Sale. I uploaded more yesterday and am willing to make a deal just to get it out of the house! Just email me at I also have it listed on the Scrap Yard on FB and at Two Peas in a Bucket.

Check out the Unity Blog today for more great inspiration!!

Summer Cleaning Sale

As a teacher, I use the summer to do all of the deep cleaning and purging that I don't do the other 10 months of the year. lol! There is tons and I would like to get it ALL out of the house! I am willing to negotiate prices and will charge only the actual shipping costs. I'm also willing to bundle several items together to reduce shipping costs. I accept PayPal and will ship once the payment has cleared.

I also have a huge tote of papers that I am trying to figure out how to ship! Any suggestions would be great!

Shipping will be as cost effective as possible unless you simply want it priority. I never try to make money from people on shipping. I will combine shipping on multiple purchases. 

My preferred method of payment is PayPal, but I am always up for a good trade.  I will ship as soon as the payment is confirmed. 

PRICES ARE NEGOTIABLE! I'm new at the pricing aspect, so bear with me. 

Send me at with the item(s) you would like to purchase or would like more information on. 

Thanks for looking!!

To My Foxy Friend

On a whim I headed over to Splitcoaststampers to pick up a challenge idea for inspiration and decided to do a quick card (or what I thought was going to be quick) for the CAS challenge. Let's just say that using a Crop-a-Dile on embossed grommets is messy. Luckily, I was able to re-emboss them to touch-up the mess. Embossing powder is forgiving in that way at least. The inspiration for this week is bathing suits. I took inspiration from three suits and probably surpassed a clean and simple card. Oh well...I went there for inspiration, right? Not to necessarily follow the rules. lol!

Don't forget about the giveaway on my You Tube Channel. (on the sidebar)
 Check this post. Ends tonight at 11:59pm!

FWF: Canvas Card, Plain Jane Tag & Giveaway

Welcome to my Unity FWF share! Make sure to check out their blog and website for the awesome sale going on!

This was my first experiment creating a card with a canvas base.
 I purchased one 12X12 sheet from Archiver's a couple of months ago and finally decided that if I didn't break the package open and try it the money I had spent would be wasted. Either it was going to be great or end up in the bin down in the basement!

My tag project focused on using the Plain Jane baseboard ivory spray on kraft cardstock with dry embossing. So fun! I really didn't know if I would like the product, but have easily fallen in love!

I also included a couple haul and project videos that include these two projects with a chance for a 4th of July scrappy prize!

Blessings to all and thanks for visiting!

FWF Pinterst Inspiration & Giveaway Winner

Thanks to my friend Lydia for pinning this gorgeous table runner on her board because it caught my eye at about 11:30p and keep me going until 1a. lol! I wish I would have had some beautiful burlap for the card, but opted, once again, for the Simple Stories Summer Fresh collection, which has a burlap paper in it. The flowers were made from the B side of the burlap paper. Maybe the burlap was the B and the text was the A. I dunno. I digress...
