Top Ten Blog Hop 2017 + GIVEAWAY!


Sorry to be late on drawing a winner! After the holidays hangover in our home for sure! Anyways thank you all for the wonderful comments and following! I used to choose a number and the winner is:
Love seeing your cute designs. Your layouts are so awesome.
I love the last card with the felt hearts; very sweet.
Congrats Rebecca, from Rebecca lol! I will email you to confirm your email address for sending the gift card! Stay tuned because I love doing giveaways as often as I can! Happy 2018!

I was thrilled to be asked to participate in this year's Top 10 Blog Hop! Definitely make your way through the entire hop because there are lots of giveaways throughout! And make your way to the end of the post to see my giveaway!

My first favorite from the year is a layout that I made for my Big Picture Classes Small Photos Make a Big Impact class where I show how to use small photos on projects.
For my second I chose a layout from another Big Picture Classes class called Two In One where you make a layout in each lesson and then use the remainder of the products from the layout to make a card.
For #3, I chose a layout I created when I guest designed for Ashley Horton's The Cut Shoppe.
For the fourth, I chose a Jillibean Soup layout. Designing for them has been a blast this year!
For the fifth project, I chose a layout I made for the Stash Bash video hop for the month of March. Stash Bash is a bunch of crafters trying to use up their stash rather than buy lots of new supplies. Check out my playlist on YouTube to see them all. We took a break for December, but we'll be back in January!
Now it's time to move onto some cards!
I've been designing for Therm O Web for years and every release gets better and better.
I had the opportunity to design for Queen & Co. this year and for me it was a match made in heaven. I love their bright colors, rainbow products and easy to create shakers!
I was thrilled to get the chance to guest design for Pretty Pink Posh this year!
I loved designing for Cardmaker Magazine this year too! We got the chance to take part in some super fun blog hops like this one with L'il Inker.
I also had the opportunity to design for Poppystamps this year! I love their dies and stamps.

Last but not least, I made a bunch of cards to participate in Simon Says Stamp challenges.
Ok, that's 12, but I had trouble narrowing them down! Thank you so much for making it through my top 12! My giveaway is a $15 gift card to Simon Says Stamp! There are several ways to enter.

December Memories Layout with Jillibean Soup

It's December! If you are not doing a December Daily album this year you might be interested in getting some December memories scrapbooked. You don't need a Christmas-themed collection either! I used Jillibean Soup Farmhouse Stew Collection and Shades of Color collection too to create this December memories layout. 
You can see a bunch of Jillibean Soup products down below. Thanks for stopping by!

NO Mess Glitter Ornaments

I am up on the Therm O Web blog with a fun DIY mess free glitter ornament project!
That's right! I said MESS FREE and GLITTER in the same sentence lol! I typically despise loose glitter, but these ornaments turn out so sparkly and beautifully and if you are careful, they can be 100% mess free!
If you want to see how easy it is to create these ornaments, check out my short video here:
Therm O Web has a GIVEAWAY going on right now so be sure to stop by their blog and ENTER to win!
I hope you will give these ornaments a try this year! If you are interested in the supplies I used they will be listed down below.
Thanks for stopping by!

Quick & Easy No Sew Felt Ornaments

Have you seen the new Memory Box Deep Edge Dies? They are fabulous! They come in the cutest designs like this little penguin and the cutting edge can cut through multiple layers of fabric, thin chipboard or even stiff felt.
I used the Memory Box dies to cut out some felt and then put my penguins together using Therm O Web's Fabric Fuse adhesive. The Fabric Fuse is a strong liquid adhesive and turns this project into a completely no sew craft!
Want to see the dies and the adhesive up close? Check out this short video to see how I put my ornament together:

If you want to check out the supplies I used, just look down below! Thanks so much for stopping by and happy crafting!

Happy Snow Day Card with Poppystamps

Anyone else been feeling like the victim of the holiday steam roller? So much to do and not enough time, amiright? Well, I have a sweet happy snow day card that reminds me to just sit and look out the window or enjoy a few moments of quiet. Of course we don't have snow here. As a matter of fact we put our AC on today. :( But at night it gets chilly enough to sit under a blanket and look at the stars and pretend they are snowflakes lol!
I used a bunch of new Poppystamps dies from their winter release. All the products will be linked down below if you are interested.
I have a video showing how I created this little snowy window scene and you can check it out here:

Have a happy day, whether it is snowy or not! And thanks for stopping by!
