Your Next Stamp Fun Friday

3:00 AM 3 Comments

Hello!  Can you believe it's the last day of August???  That means that today is the last day of our August Fun Friday theme which is Birthdays/Celebrations!  I decided to use this ADORABLE YNS image named Sippy for my card today:)  The dp is some My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing Tangerine, and the layout is MFTWSC86.  

Make sure you check out the Your Next Stamp Blog for more fab projects today, and stay tuned for our new September theme which begins next week!  We also have a new release coming up next week Woot Woot!  

My BFF and I took our daughters to the Big Time Rush concert a couple of nights ago.  The girls had a blast, and I wanted to share this picture I took of them downtown.  


I always crack up when I see pictures of them together because my daughter (Avery) is 3 months OLDER than Ava who is on the left!  They are too cute:)

Thank you so much for stopping by today, and have a wonderful weekend!

Color Throwdown #206!

2:00 AM 11 Comments

Hello!  It's time for a new Color Throwdown, and this week I am the hostess:)  I just love the picture I chose for this challenge!  Aren't these flowers just gorgeous, and I love the color combination with the turquoise vase!  I decided to finally ink up my The Sweet Life stamp set from PTI along with Mega Gracious Vases, and this is what I came up with:


Very CAS!  I used the coordinating dies, stamped my images, and popped them up over an oval frame that I embossed with the SU Square Lattice Textured Impressions folder.  The sentiment comes from the PTI set Beautiful Butterflies.  

We hope you'll play along with us this week!  Just link your creations to the Color Throwdown Blog HERE, and while you're there make sure you check out the rest of the amazing DT creations!

Well, we had a wonderful vacation last week, and it's back to the real world this week.  I am actually home schooling my daughter this year which was a HUGE decision, but the first couple of days have gone pretty smoothly:)  By next year we hope to be living in a new house in a much better school district!

Thank you so much for stopping by today, and I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

Your Next Stamp Fun Friday!

3:00 AM 5 Comments

Hello!  In honor or Your Next Stamp's 3rd birthday, August Fun Fridays are all about Birthdays/Celebrations!  I decided to make a fun little treat box this week using this super cute template I found in the Silhouette Online Store called Box 3d Cupcake Tote by Lori Whitlock.  

I used Mini Cupcake Cutie with the matching Mini Cupcake Cutie Die.  This was my first time using a mini with the coordinating die, and all I can say is I'm HOOKED!  So simple and fun!  The sentiment comes from the YNS set Handwritten Sentiments.  

Make sure you check out the Your Next Stamp Blog today for more amazing Fun Friday projects!  

I'm heading to the beach on vacation for a week.  It's been so hard to wait all summer for our vacation, but it's finally here~YAY!  Our last hurrah before school starts:)  Thank you so much for stopping by and have a fabulous Friday!

Color Throwdown #204!

2:00 AM 12 Comments


Hello!  It's time for another Color Throwdown, and this week the amazing Broni Holcombe is our hostess!  She chose this gorgeous dress as our inspiration and this is what I came up with:


I am drawn to all things cute and all things pumpkin, so when I saw this darling new release from All That Scraps called Punkin Beatrice, I had to have her!  This is the digi version, so I was able to enlarge her a little bit, and I printed out the sentiment.    The dp is My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Rosy and the layout is last week's MFTWSC81.

We hope you'll join us this week!  Just link your creations to the Color Throwdown Blog HERE, and make sure you check out the rest of the awesome DT creations while you're there!

Thank you so much for stopping by today, and have a wonderful Wednesday:)
