It’s been a while since I’ve posted. Sorry about that.
Anyways, with Easter on the way, I wanted to post a quick tutorial!

That’s it!! Such a quick, easy project, that looks fantastic!!!
What are you making for Easter?
Category: simply scrappin
|I had bought some Vera Bradley products as gifts recently, and had received the receipts in an extra thick envelope. Of course, being the scrapper that I am, I kept the envelope, thinking it would be perfect for a future project.
So, for my mom’s birthday, I altered the envelope and made a card to go inside.
|I made the card below using the new Lush line from My Mind’s Eye…..I love the vintage feel of the paper and embellishments! The turquoise (blue) and the browns are my favorite!!!
The beautiful brown flower was handmade by my MIL!!
|I made these ATCs for a “Stash Buster ATC Swap” over on sistv.com
The challenge was to choose 5 items from the list and use up some of your scrapbook stash. I chose: buttons, bling, photo corners, pattern paper (bird/cloud) and flowers. It didn’t really put a dent in my stash, but it was alot of fun to make.
I love this stamp set….I got it for my birthday from papertreyink.com
Thanks for stopping by!
|Well, I survived my 40th birthday! Whew!
It was quite the birthday!!!
I received some new stamp sets from PapertreyInk.com, so I’ve been working on some cards.
For these few cards, I used this set.
|A good friend of mine had to say good-bye to her dog a few days ago. Her dog was a loyal furry friend and will be greatly missed. I made the card below for her, using another new set from papertreyink.
That’s all for today. Just a quick post.
Time to refill my coffee cup.
|Ever wake up in the middle of the night and instantly someone comes to your mind, but you don’t understand why?
I believe that God has placed that person on your heart.
What do I mean?
I feel that it is a call to prayer.
God has placed that person on your heart, so that you can remember them in prayer.
Maybe even send them a card in the mail, (or email or text).
Or bake some cookies for them.
Just to let them know YOU were thinking about THEM.
Maybe they need encouraged.
Maybe they are going through something and they feel all alone.
They need to know they are loved.
They need to feel God’s love…..maybe THROUGH YOU!
I encourage you, the next time someone comes to your mind, out-of-the-blue,
stop & whisper a prayer for them.
You don’t need to know the details. God already knows.
|Today I baked some cookies. Snickerdoodles. (My hubby’s favorite.)
Plus God had placed someone on my heart that was having some physical problems, so I thought that maybe some homemade cookies would help sweeten their day.
Here’s the yummy recipe for Betty Crocker Snickerdoodles.
This is the recipe, plus my timing for using baking stones instead of cookie sheets:
Yields: approx. 48 cookies
*These cookies are peanut-free.
|Above is an altered clipboard that I made. It can be used to display a favorite photo or a t0-do list.|
|I love wrapping homemade goodies in pretty cellophane. I also made this tag to match the card & clipboard.
Below is the finished “Warm Winter Wishes” set.
Only 18 days till 40!
|Time slips by so fast.
This is a layout that I had done a while ago of Nick in his “footy pajamas”. (picture circa 1997?)
When you’re in the moment, time seems to creep by.
But then suddenly, it’s years later.
Where did time go?
