12 Kits of Occasions September 2016

So this kit came in its own BOX! It was so full of TONS of paper, die cuts, embellishments, etc. I had high hopes of making at least 8 or so cards, but life got in the way and I only made 4 this month, but I'm telling you, I could have made SO many! Jeanne totally spoiled us, and I just loved the cute images :) Here are the cards I was able to create:





Make sure to go check out the cards that all the other ladies created, too!

MFT Superstar Challenge 2016

I thought I'd have time to create several cards for the MFT superstar challenge, but hey, at least I got one in :) Its going to be stiff competition, some of those cards submitted are downright amazing! I used two of my newer sets to create this card. For the leaves I embossed them in white on black card stock and they looked spooky enough for this Halloween card. Good luck everyone! What a thrill it would be to be one of the winners!

MFT Color Challenge #53

Got to play with more of the new release! My parents came to watch my son a couple of weeks ago while his daycare was on vacation, he had the BEST time! So I thought this sentiment was perfect :) And hey that scarecrow is just too cute, isn't he?

MFT Sketch Challenge #297 (take 2) & Color Challenge #53

Got to play with my new hedgehogs! Love them :) If I made this card again, however, I wouldn't do the hedgehog on the kraft. I do love how the leaves turned out on the kraft, though! I feel like the hedgehog is too light.

My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #297

Back at it again! I've had the creative juices flowing. I've been cleaning up after each card and that has really helped. I used to leave it all out to where I had no room left on my desk or had no empty blocks, etc. Hopefully I keep this going because I'm on a roll!

MFT Color Challenge #52

Yay, I was able to participate in yet another MFT challenge! This one was all about the colors. I didn't have the exact ones, but got a pretty close match. For my birthday my brother and sister in law got me a gift card to Teavana, so I knew that I wanted to make them some type of tea card as a thank here's what I made:


My sister in law will really love it because she loves the teal color (and tea!).

All supplies MFT except card stock (PTI).

MFT Sketch Challenge #296

I finally had some time to get in my craft room this weekend! I actually made 4 cards and it felt wonderful :) I made two for this sketch challenge, so you'll be seeing the next one tomorrow morning since there isn't much time left! I also finally inked up some of my new sets I got from several releases ago, which is a good thing since I know I'm going to be getting some new goodies from the release tomorrow!


I used my distress inks, I definitely need some practice with them, but I sort of got the look I was going for.

All stamps: MFT
Cardstock & Patterned paper: PTI
