Moving Time

Hopefully within the next couple of weeks, I will have my craft room up and running again! Right now, it is an absolute disaster! I am finally moving this week, so haven't done much of any crafting for the past month. Please bear with me as I move things in, get settled, and get back to creating some chaos!

And I hope to have my craft room a little (LOT!!) more organized than it was before. So once it's ready to be seen with a camera, I'll post what I can and would be happy for any recommendations!

So happy creating on your own!

Wedding Invitation

This past week I spent 3 evenings working on these invitations for my dear friend Beth. The first night I spent cutting the paper to the correct size and folding it, and cutting the ribbon. The second night involved lots of printing and lots of cutting. I first had to make sure the written part would fit in the pieces that I needed to cut. Then I had to print them. Follow that up with at least 200 shape punches and about 100 rolls through a paper cutting machine. And then this is what you get! The final night involved meeting up with Beth, Chris, Beth's mom, the MOA-Liz, and assembling all the invites.

All products are Stampin' Up products. The paper is Riding Hood Red and Very Vanilla, ribbon is Chocolate Chip, smaller punch is the Curly Label punch (which I LOVE!!), and the bigger piece used the sweet Sizzix Big Shot with the Top Note die (which I absolutely LOVE even more).

The final design deviated a little from the original design, but I absoluetly love it. It is simple, but elegant (I think). If you have any other questions about it, let me know!

Happy Creating!

Dream. Create. Inspire. 2.

Lately I have been big in to finding some great digital kits...for free! And I will admit, I have paid for a couple of amazing kits that I have found as well. Creativity By Crystal has some fun kits! Right now, she has all of her kits on sale as well. And who doesn't love a sale?
So click on the sale banner, and take a look at what she has. If you would like to see some of her creative work, go to the gallery and check it out.
Happy Creating!

My Cute Stamps

If you are wanting some fun and cute stamps, go on over to My Cute Stamps and check them out! Or go to Creating Cupcakes with me and sign up to win a cute Easter stamp set.

I have decided that I have 2 favorite sets. Think.....NATURE.

This little stamp set is Spunky Nature.

I like the mix of nature in it. Love flowers and leaves, and gotta love some of the little critters that God has blessed our surroundings with.

So to continue on with the nature theme, how about this Little Forest Friends set. Cute, huh? I like all the little critters in this set as well.

There is so much fun-card potential in these 2 sets, I need some kid wrangling gigs so I can buy them!

Now, go on over to My Cute Stamps and see what you can find for yourself!
