Update on life.....

Good afternoon everyone.  I can't believe that it's been so long since I posted here.  I just don't know where the time goes!!

I've had a lot going on in my life and I'm hoping to get back to posting on a regular basis.  Crafting has always been a needed escape for me and I really need to get back to it.

As part of my update I decided it was time to update the look of my blog.  As I was searching for a new blog header I came across the one showing on my blog now.  As I found this header, it brought tears to my eyes.  The name of the header is "Mamie Rae".  My mom passed away 2 years ago and my life has been in turmoil since.  My 2 girls had always called my mom "Mamy" and her first name was "Rae".  It was as though my mom was sitting next to me guiding me to this header.  My mom used to love checking out my newest blog posts and giving me constructive criticism.  I miss her everyday!

Thanks for listening to me.  Now I need to get busy creating!!!

Have a great day!

Christmas 2015 Advent Calendar

Good morning everyone.  Welcome to another amazing release from JustRite Papercraft.  Today I've chosen to make a cute advent calendar using JustRite Papercraft's Christmas Mini Tags.


I cut all of the Christmas stocking using my Cricut Expression with the Christmas Cheer cartridge.  Next I used the JustRite Papercraft Christmas Mini Tags set to stamp each day of the month.  The cute border around my calendar is made using Martha Stewart loops border punch.  I bought the small clothespins at Hobby Lobby.

Below is a closeup of the star which was made using Spellbinders Stars 5.  The sentiment is also included in JustRite Papercraft's Christmas Mini Tags.



Here is the list of JustRite Papercraft designers also showcasing some really awesome projects using sets from the November release.  Be sure to check them out.

Thinking of you....

Good morning.... Today I have another card using a set from the JustRite Papercraft October release.  Today's set is called Morning Splendor.
I chose to stamp the morning glory using Versamark and black embossing powder - I think it gives a really nice look against the white cardstock.  I added some yellow glitter to the centers for some extra "pop".

The sentiment is also included in "Morning Splendor", stamped onto Spellbinders Majestic Oval die.

Along the bottom of my card I used Martha Stewart Beaded Arcs border punch and added some yellow stones.

Here are the other JustRite designers also showing some beautiful projects today using Morning Splendor - be sure to check them out.

A Wonderful Journey........

Good morning and welcome to another JustRite Papercraft stamp release.  Today's set is called Wedding Inner Sentiments.  Even though it's called Wedding Inner Sentiments it is perfect for the outside of a card too.

I used Spellbinders Classic Ovals to create an opening on my card front and then stamped the beautiful sentiment from Wedding Inner Sentiments.  I made the pretty flowers using Spellbinders Blooms 4.  As you can probably see, I really like lots and lots of layers on my cards.

Best Wishes......

Good morning.  Welcome to JustRite Papercrafts October stamp release.  I'm pretty sure you're gonna love all of these stamps - I know I do!!

Today's set is called Grand Wedding Wishes.  It is an awesome set for creating beautiful wedding cards however some of the sentiments would work on other types of cards as well.

Here is a look at the front of my card.  To create the card base I used the Cuttlebug Hearts embossing folder cut into strips.  I also used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and the Martha Stewart Lace Hearts border punch across the top of the card.

The beautiful sentiment from Grand Wedding Wishes is stamped in black and diecut using Spellbinders Labels 4.


Here is a look at the inside of my card.  I used the same Cuttlebug Heart embossing folder.  I then used another beautiful sentiment from Grand Wedding Wishes stamped in black and diecut using Spellbinders Labels 4.  Now I just need to get invited to a wedding ~LOL~


Here is a list of the other JustRite Papercraft designers also showing some beautiful projects today using Grand Wedding Wishes - be sure to check them out.

Joyeux Noel......

Good morning.  Today is the final day of JustRite Papercraft's August release.  I hope you've enjoyed the JustRite comeback as much as I have.  I'm sure there's more great products to come - stay tuned.

Today I created a card using Festive Grand Christmas Sentiments.  These sentiments are perfect for creating a wide variety of Christmas cards.


My card style these days has been clean and simple and today is no exception.  I stamped the sentiment onto a Spellbinders Labels 17 diecut, added a few layers and some seam binding - done!!  This card could easily be mass produced but still looks like you spent a lot of time making it.

Here are the other designers also showing some very nice projects today using Festive Grand Christmas Sentiments - check them out.....

Faith, Hope, Love........

Good morning everyone.  Today I have another great Christmas card to share.

Today's stamp set is called Peace and Joy Sentiments and is perfect for creating Christmas cards for the upcoming season.


My card has several layers which adds lots of dimension to my card.  I stamped the sentiment from Peace and Joy Sentiments using black and green ink which gives the sentiment more personality and it's diecut using Spellbinders Elegant Ovals.  The poinsettia is created using Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia.

Here are the other designers showing some amazing projects today using Peace and Joy Sentiments- be sure to check them out.
