Card: Happy Blooming Birthday

Quick and easy card to share with you today! I actually had to fight the urge not to add twine or ribbon or something else...

 

Thankfully, I had my friend Brianne over crafting, so she talked me out of it! :) The center of the flower is a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock that I punched out, then covered with Wink of Stella!

It's hard to tell but I also used Wink of Stella on the letters for the word "blooming" - it's a subtle detail that really stands out in person! :)

I hope you like it and make sure you go check out all the amazing cards from the other What Will You Stamp? designers this week!! :)

Card: You are Stronger than You Think

Happy Monday! Today I'm sharing a quick card I made to give to someone in need of some encouragement:

If you've been around here awhile, you might remember when I did the Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk in San Francisco... it's a cause that means a lot to me with a cousin who is a survivor and my grandmother who was also a survivor of breast cancer.


This stamp set is perfect for making any sort of support or sympathy cards... a must have in any stampers stamp stash! In case you are wondering, the ribbon stamp I used is a retired stamp called Ribbon of Hope.

Card: You Warm My Heart

Let's just say I have my hands full and haven't had much time for this lately... but I'm here today to share a card I haven't shared on here before... one I made last year for a swap at the Leadership Convention! :)

 

I love this set... especially that cute little bicycle stamp! :)

12 Projects Update... Again!



So last year, I decided my goals were simple. To finish up 12 projects in some state of progress. And I restated that goal again in January 2015. Then life really happened this last year! ;) And I committed to doing the What Will You Stamp? Challenge Blog, which took a lot of my creative/spare time. So I'm going to continue working on these this year, along with continuing to do the WWYS blog.

So I figure now is a good time to report on the progress I've made on that front...

The Quilting Projects
1.  Tom's Quilt  Haven't worked on it yet.... 
2.  Katie's Quilt  Ditto for this one...
3.  Rag Quilt for Me  And this one....
4.  Chevron Quilt for Living Room   And this one. I got distracted by other sewing projects.... lots of babies!

The Scrapbooks
1.  Disneyworld Scrapbook  I worked on this more and it's now about 80% complete.
2.  Vermont Scrapbook  DONE!
3.  Creighton's Baby Book  Still just need to pick pictures, print them and finish up.
4.  Abby's Baby Book Still just need to pick pictures, print them and finish up. I want to note that I actually also got the baby books ready for my new nephew and niece, Alex and Natalie! Their books are also at the same stage as Creighton and Abby's baby books :)

The Photo Books
1.  Photo Books for 2001-2013 2015 I still want to do this... just a matter of making the time to do it... and now I want to go through 2015!
2.  Photo Book for Our Wedding  DONE!!! Along with one of all of our engagement photos. The honeymoon book is still on the list too!

Looking at the list I have definitely recommitted myself to finishing these projects... again. And a few more... namely Brian's quilt, a baby quilt for our little guy, and a pile of baby quilts that need to be finished... all of which are in line ahead of the quilting projects listed above. They will all get done eventually!! It does feel good to look at this list and see some progress being made... and knowing that I also finished a lot of other things in the meantime!

Do you have any crafting goals for 2016?

My One Little Word for 2016... Present.

http://ayangcempaka.com/uk/product/be-present-art-print/
Art print available for purchase here.

Each year, I think about and pick a word to live by and this year my word is simple... present. As in be present. We have lots on the horizon this year and I just want to take things one day at a time... to be in the moment and not in the past or future!

My past words are... Simplify (2015), Breathe (2014), Adventure (2013), Enjoy (2012), Live (2011), Love (2010), and Create (2009).

Do you have a word to live by this year?

A slight detour from my onslaught of Christmas cards.... I can't wait for Christmas next week! How about you?! ;)

365 Cards: Thinking of You at Christmas

Hope you aren't tired of seeing the Christmas cards from me because I have another one to share today!


To make the rainbow ornaments, I made my own ink pad using ink refills! I inked my stamp first in Versamark, then quickly inked up with the custom ink pad and stamped my ornament. I used Heat & Stick powder and Dazzling Diamonds to make my ornaments sparkly! :)


This awesome stamp set has a matching set of Framelits that I used to cut out the hangers for tops of the ornaments! :) So much fun!

Now head on over to check out all the creative projects this week from the What Will You Stamp? design team.... you won't want to miss seeing all the great ideas using this fun stamp set! :)
