{JAX Starz Blog Hop} 365 Cards: Truly Grateful

Happy Saturday and welcome to the Jacksonville Starz Blog Hop! I'm happy to say that this is a regular monthly feature around here... you can find it the first Saturday of the month going forward! :)

In case you missed past blog hops, you can check them out here. And now onto this month's hop... :)


This month our theme is a color challenge -- how fun, right?! I love color challenges and this one comes from our Color Coach, a great tool that can help jump start your creativity when you are stuck or when you want to try something new with what you already have on hand. And this color scheme is one of my favorites! :)



When I sat down to do this month's card, I had intended on using a different stamp set than this... but I had loaned it out to one of my friends! So I began searching through stamps I hadn't used yet and found this one... I'm so glad that I did.

This set is perfect for anything fall or rustic. Great sentiments and I love the wood grains (of course!). I mixed in a little Gorgeous Grunge stamps just to finish it off (I'm hopelessly addicted to those ink blot stamps in that set!).

Up next in the hop is one of my favorite stampers... Maria Willis! I'm lucky to say that she is a part of my downline team and we are long lost stamping soul mates. (Seriously, we always buy the same stamps, pin the same cards.... we are long lost stamping twins!) So please go hop along to Maria's blog to see her fabulous (I'm sure it's fabulous!) card this month!



And just in case you get lost... here is this month's list of participants!

{JAX Starz Blog Hop} 365 Cards: Boo to You!

Happy Saturday and welcome to the Jacksonville Starz Blog Hop! This is our second blog hop and I'm happy to say this will be a regular feature around here going forward! :) In case you missed it, you can check out our first one here.

This month our theme is Halloween... and I love the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper, so I knew I had to use that for my project! :)


When I first saw this paper, this particular piece just called for being made into a simple and quick card!  After cutting out the little monsters, I added a little detail by stitching around the edge with my sewing machine, matting it with Basic Black cardstock, adding some Linen Thread, and using my Starburst and Bitty Banner Framelits to make a fun tag to use for my sentiment!


Came together so fast! The "boo to you" sentiment I used is part of the Good Greetings stamp set only available through the end of this month to hostesses, so contact me if you'd like to host a party in order to earn the set for FREE! :)


Up next in the hop is Priscilla Thoreson! Priscilla makes the CUTEST cards and banners!! I love her style and I can say that I'm lucky enough to have met and spent time with her at Convention this summer!! I can't wait to see her again (and I will NEVER pass up an invite out for drinks again Priscilla!! HAHA).... So go check out what she made!! :)



And just in case you get lost, here is a list of this month's participants!

Happy Sunday and welcome to the Jacksonville Starz 2014 Holiday Catalog Blog Hop! Before I dive in and share my card, I just want to say how awesome and talented this team is -- I'm so lucky to be a part of it and we are lucky to have the awesome and fabulous Lee Conrey as our team leader -- she's the best!!! :)

So we usually do a team card swap for new catalogs when they are published and the team never disappoints - sooooo many awesome cards!  This was the card I did this month for our Holiday Catalog Swap....

I just love this set! I used my Blendabilities to color the santa suit - I love those pens! :)


A little sparkle, a few sequins... I had so much fun making this card!
