Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop Winner!

Hello Everybody!

I bet you all thought I forgot all about announcing the winner of my Mystery Package for the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop, right? I didn’t forget; I was just unable to announce it until today! Mr. Crimson Owl and I have been on vacation, celebrating our 10 year anniversary! Our first stop was Atlanta to see an AMAZING Houston Astros team beat the Atlanta Braves in the brand new beautiful Sun Trust Park! Then it was off to Las Vegas, the glitter capitol of the world! Perfect for a crafty gal like me who loves the bling! Now I’m finally back in the craft room, and I DO have a winner to announce!

Drum roll, please . . .

Paper Sweeties July 2017 New Release Party!

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the Paper Sweeties July New Release Party! We have some beautiful new designs featuring projects created with our new release, Kindness Matters Sweet Cuts and Stamps, and Rectangle Scallop Frames! Today, I am sharing a cheerful card using one of the sentiments from Kindness Matters.

I stamped the sentiment in gold on a piece of confetti vellum, then used embossing powder and a heat gun for the pretty, raised letter effect. The Circle Scallops, Sweet Borders, and hearts are all die cut from paper and colored vellum.

Paper Sweeties Plan Your Life Series – July 2017!

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the Paper Sweeties Plan Your Life Series – July 2017 blog hop! You can find more great inspiration and ideas over at the Paper Sweeties blog right here:  https://papersweeties.com/

We’re celebrating America’s holiday all month long, so let’s bring out the red, white, and blue! I created a decorative calendar with cheerful fireworks and a patriotic Emma and Jake! If you would like to make the calendar more of a planner, then you could just move the numbers to the bottom corner of the circles. The glitzy fireworks were created with ink and embossing powder, perfect for any birthday party!
