Had to Let You Know

I thought I would share an awesome sale that is going on for just a few days, and it's only once a year.  Unity Stamps is having all of their stamps 45% off...EVERYTHING!!!!  Yeap I have to admit I had a little shopping spree myself.  So hurry on over and scoop up some of the beautiful stamps they have to offer and spread the word. 

Do You Play Along With Kaiser?

We love the beach and one of the fun things that my little likes to watch for is this is his idea of Gator Hunting...high up on the dock looking down at the gators.  The KaiserCraft collection I used is from the new Cock-a-doodle-doo and it's so great for kids. 

My question to you is did you know that KaiserCraft has a challenge each month with layout sketches.  There is a sketch a week that you can do and you can submit for all of them or just one, your choice. Prizes are to be had and plus it gives you a chance to use some of Kaiser's yummy collections.  Be sure to check it out on the blog every Saturday.

See ya next week

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like.......

Christmas!!!!  I can't believe Christmas music is already on the radio...really?  I do love the season but somehow this year I'm not getting into it quite yet.  Maybe this card will do the trick. 

The collection of paper is from Beary Scrap/ My Mind's Eye 12 Days of Christmas.  I love the retro feel of the paper...50ish looking.  It really is different and fun and you should have it in your collection for sure.

The stamps and dies I used are from Prickley Pear, along with the sketch.  I love the way Prickley's clear stamp line up with the cut dies perfectly...really it makes creating super fun.

Now here is the really great part... Prickley Pear has changed their sketch don't even have to use their stamps, just follow the sketch, link it up and you might win a $15 gift certificate for whatever your heart desires in the store.  What it even better...right now at Beary Scrap it's anything goes and you could win a $30 gift certificate to the store...WOW!!!  Just think one project would satisfy both challenges and there are some great prizes out there.  So jump in and play.

Sharing My Secret Box

I'm super excited to share this little box I created this weekend...I LOVE IT!!!  It's from a tutorial I saw on Splitcoaststampers "Secret Box" .   I've used My Little Shoebox papers from the Audrey Collection and the really cool part is the matching dies from Scrapping Cottage.  Honestly it's just so much fun to create.  Now let me show you everything this little box has going on.

Prickley Pear Monday!

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, you have to take pause and think of everything you have to be thankful for.  I have so much and am so blessed. Of course my family is first but I also have so much more to be thankful for...including the design teams that I'm fortunate to work with.  I'm so loving Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps...there is so much diversity in their stamps. 

This Vintage Cornucopia stamp is wonderful for the season and the sentiment from Ralph Waldo Emerson, well it's just perfect. The paper is from KaiserCraft...another team I'm so thankful to be a part of.

Now you need to go check out more great cards from the rest of the PPRS design Team on the Prickley Pear's Blog.
