Good morning and welcome to day two of sneak peeks!! Today we have some more awesomeness to share with you using three more sets....Geo Borders, Stitched Decorative Banners, & Dream Bigger :) 

For my first card, it might be easier to tell you what I DIDN'T do than tell you what all I DID do!!! bahahaha
I got the bright idea I would try some water coloring (which by the way is not as easy as some people make it look!) So for the background, not sure if you can tell BUT it is water colored using Tim Holtz distress ink in two different shades :) I then stamped the Dream Bigger sentiment in the center. I used the cloud dies from the Fly Away With Me die set and randomly placed them on the card. When I got to this point is when things really started to get shaky and it just about wounded up in the trash can lol! I stamped the birds from the Lost At Sea set and didn't realize my card stock had not fully dried and the birds looked wonky :( Soooo I then "tried" to fix them using a fine tip pen and messed them up EVEN more arrrr!!! I was determined at this point that somehow, someway I was going to fix them!! That is why they are all covered up with stickles :) :) :) Since the birds had stickles, the sky needed stickles, then the clouds needed stickles and if ALL of that was all nice and sparkly the sentiment needed to sparkle.....see where I'm going with this EVERYTHING now sparkles lol!!! Then to top it all off, I went to move it after everything dried and got a tad bit of yellow on one of the clouds! I definitely lost my religion on this card just sayin.....Here's a look at it from the side...



On to my second card! I decided to go WAY simple on this one (I made it after the one above and my stress level was way to high to do anything but simple hee hee) Anyhoo, I used the Dream Bigger sentiment again for my focal point. I then used one of the borders from the Geo Border set and stamped it beneath the sentiment. I used the Medium Stitched Scalloped Bow and also stamped it using the same border stamp. Just for fun, I added a little face from the Bee Happy set to the center!


Here's another look at it from the side....


Thanks for stopping by! I'll see ya back here tomorrow with more sneak peeks :) Hugs, Leanne

Good morning all my crafty friends! I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend! Guess what this week is?!!! Yup, it's that time again SNEAK PEEK WEEK!!! Today we will be showcasing three different sets....Grainy Background, Fun Letter Background, & Large Cloud Bubble die! Eeeekkk! I can't pick a favorite of these, I seriously LOVE them all!! 

For my first card, I've used the Fun Letter Background and stamped it with black ink. I love how it looks like a chalkboard background! I then took a small strip of brown paper and stamped (using a coordinating brown ink) the Grainy Background for my books to sit on. The books and little apple are a svg file that I found in the Silhouette store. I used one of the little bee faces from the Bee Happy stamp set and gave the little apple a face hee hee. The sentiment is from the Fun Gift Pocket Sentiments stamp set. Here is a side view.......


Now onto my second card :) I've used the Grainy Background stamp again but this time using a different color! I then used the new Large Cloud Bubble die and attached it at the top. The sentiment is from the Live Love Bark stamp set. I found this cute cow also in the Silhouette store. He just cracked me up as soon as I spotted him hee hee!


Here's a look at it from the side....



That's it for me today :) I'll be back again tomorrow with day two sneaks!! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a AWESOME day! Hugs, Leanne

MCT Inspiration Wednesday!


Good morning! I hope all is well in your neck of the woods :) The last few weeks have been busy and I'm sorry for not having anything to share with you until now :( Today is Inspiration Wednesday at My Creative Time and I have a fun beach theme card to share with you! We have been tossing around the idea of "maybe" taking a little weekend trip to the beach! So my inspiration for this card is all the fun things you can find there! Emma's, Surf's Up Stamp set was PERFECT for this card!

I found these super cool sunglasses in the Silhouette Store! After I got it all put together, I added liquid glass to the lens to make them look a little more real :) I used the different words and randomly stamped above the sun glasses using different colors of ink. I also used the sentiment from this same stamp set and stamped it underneath the sunglasses :) 


I'm working on next week's release! It's going to be another jaw dropper so be ready hee hee! Can't wait to sneak peeks start :) Thank you all SO much for hanging in with me during my little break time! Have a GREAT day and I'll see you back soon :) BIG Hugs, Leanne

Thanks for all you do!


Hello! I'm so sorry that you have been hearing crickets on my blog the last couple of weeks :(  It seems life just keeps us on a roller coaster! Last week, my father in law was flown by helicopter to a out of town hospital :( He has had bone cancer for awhile, but they found a blood clot on his brain and had to go in and remove it :( Our hearts are broken, he passed away last Thursday night. We stayed at the hospital from Sunday night to Thursday night and drove home this past Friday. We buried him on Sunday :( We have been totally exhausted since we loss so much sleep last week and trying to catch up on some this week! So please forgive me for just a tad bit longer! I haven't found my mojo just yet :)

I hated so bad that I missed out on release week! I was able to get just a few things made so I'll be sharing them over the next few days :) This card I made for day one of sneak peeks. My card made it up on Emma's Blog but I didn't get to post it to mine! I found the fairy with flower in the Silhouette store. I used PK-660 Laughy Taffy for her face. The die cut part of the sentiment and the sentiment are from the new release, Happy Thoughts stamp set.


Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Have a GREAT 4th of July!
Hugs, Leanne

Happy Flip Flop Day Blog Hop!




HELLO everyone & welcome to our "Happy Flip Flop Day Blog Hop!"  We are ALL SUPER EXCITED because we will be showcasing a set called "Sit Back & Relax" that will be released next week! This FUN set includes a total of 19 stamps with coordinating dies! But, just for hopping today & leaving comments on all of our blogs, Emma decided to have 5 of us give away this FABULOUS set to 5 lucky peeps BEFORE it's released! We will not be saying which 5 of us are giving it away, so you might want to comment on ALL the blogs so you won't miss out! :) All 5 winners will be announced on Emma's Blog on Sunday, June 22nd at noon PST! So you have until Saturday, June 21st at midnight PST to leave your comments.


Happy Friday! Did you know today was officially Flip Flop Day?! It sure is! I love my flip flops and to be honest I busted mine out weeks ago hee hee! You should be arriving here from Micia's Blog. If you just stumbled upon my blog and want to start at the beginning head over to Emma's Blog to get started :)

Today we will be showcasing a new set called "Sit Back & Relax"!


Aren't those flip flop dies ADORABLE!!! I'm in LOVE! For my card, I've used my CTMH inks and created a little beach scene. I tore a piece of card stock to use as a mask and sponged the sand and then used the same mask to make the waves :) I wanted it to look like the waves were washing in :) I added some stickles just to give a little sparkle. Again, I'm in love with these cute flip flops!! I love that there is a coordinating stamp for the soles! I had a hard time picking which sentiment I wanted to use! I love all of them too hee hee! I stamped the sentiment on the Stitched "Capture" Frame w/arrow die set.


Thanks for stopping by today! Next on the hop is Teri! Have a GREAT weekend! Hugs, Leanne

HAPPY HOPPING!

MCT Inspiration Wednesday!


Happy Wednesday ya'll! I hope everyone is having a awesome week :) Today is Inspiration Wednesday over at My Creative Time! I'm suppose to share a picture of what inspired me to make my project so here it is.....

   happy 4th

I bet your thinking hmmm this card don't look like that!! Nope, I just wanted to make a 4th of July card hee hee! I've been eyeing this little baby bald eagle in the silhouette store for quite some time and thought this would be the perfect time to use him! I made the background using the Build a Scripty & Watercolor Background set and the My Little Firecracker stamp set. The sentiment is also from the My Little Firecracker stamp set too :)


I'm not sure if it's because I used liquid applique to his eyes or just the way the light caught but his little eyes in this picture are SPOOKY bahahaha! 4th of July is just around the corner! Have you got plans? My hubs will be on vacation so who knows what we will get into! Hope you have a GREAT day and thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Leanne

Just wanted to let you all know we are having a blog hop this Friday!!

MCT Thrifty Thursday!


Good morning!! Today is Thrifty Thursday at My Creative Time! This is where we are to make a project using our scraps! This is right up my alley, I have tons of scraps!! 

I used all scraps from my solid card stock to make my little hero. He came from the Silhouette store :) For the background, I used "Build A Scripty & Watercolor Background Stamp" (love this used as a sky!) The buildings are from the "Main Street" set. The little birds are from this last release "Lost at Sea". The sentiment I used is from a older MCT set but still a good "You're My Best Buddy".


Okay, I promise this is not suppose to be a sappy post and I'm trying not to get teary eyed! I know this may sound silly to some but I had my daddy on my mind while I was making this and if he was still here with us this would have been his Father's Day card. He will always be my hero and I'll always be daddy's little girl. This father's day is going to be hard :( 

Hugs, Leanne

I then used the star from Encouraging Quotes and a sentiment from Hey Sailor! I heat embossed those with white embossing powder. Last, I added some twine and a little star from my button stash :)

Welcome to our final day of sneak peeks! I sure hope everyone has enjoyed this week as much as I have! This week has flew by! I guess the saying is true time flies when your having fun! Today we are sneaking the last three sets...Live Love Laugh & Be Happy, Pretty Butterflies & Dragonfly dies, & Social Media dies.

For my card, I've used two of the pretty butterflies out of the Pretty Butterflies & Dragonfly die set! I absolutely LOVE these butterflies!!! If you look you can tell that they have little specks on them, that is a coordinating stamp that is included in the Live Love Laugh & Be Happy set! Each butterfly has it's own coordinating stamp how awesome is that!! The sentiment is also from the Live Love Laugh & Be Happy set along with the little butterfly trail ( if you look close you can see it under the butterfly, I stamped it in blue so it's hard to see here but not in real life!) The flowers and the lady bug is from the Build A Pretty Flower set that was released last month. I also added some grass (Stitched Grass die) I used the largest cloud from the Fly Away With Me set as a stencil to make my background.


Have a GREAT Thursday and don't forget to join us tomorrow for our release hop! Hugs, Leanne

I had so much fun making this card! Everything on this card is from this set EXCEPT for the seaweed it came from the Silhouette store. Also, I used my CTMH inks other than them two things the rest is from the Lost At Sea set!


For my next card, I've used the Stripey Background! This is another AWESOME background that your going to love!! The sailboat is from the Silhouette Store. The bird and the sentiment are both from the Lost At Sea set. I stamped the sentiment on the banner from the Vintage Stitched Label dies. I also used the circle dies from the Bunch of Fun Circle set. Last, I added stitching with my white jellyroll pen :)

Good morning and Happy Memorial Day!! I hope everyone had a awesome weekend and that you have a great day planned with friends or family or both hee hee! We are grilling at my Mom's later on today so I'm looking forward to that! 

Welcome to day one of  My Creative Time's 32nd release sneak peek week! This week is absolutely going to have you drooling for release day!! I have to say I love each release that Emma does but this one is just OVER the top loaded with goodies! Today we will be showcasing three sets...Speech Bubble Sentiments w/die, Bunch of Fun Circles, and Build A Scripty & Watercolor Background set. 

For my first card and first sneak I've used the Speech Bubble Sentiments & dies. LOVE these dies and the sentiments are AWESOME too! Instead of the sentiment, I wanted to use the hello die but trust me I will be using the sentiments too hee hee! I got the little bee from the Silhouette store. The pattern paper is from my stash and ahumm aren't you proud of me for using pattern paper hee hee It didn't take me hours to pick this pattern out I wonder why bahahaha bee=honeycomb! 


Now on to my second sneak! I combined the sneaks on this card! First, I used the Watercolor Background stamp and stamped it using my CTMH Exclusive inks. I wanted to use some colors that I haven't used together before. At first, I wasn't quite so sure I was digging these together but they started to grow on me hope they grow on you too! After I got that background stamped, I went and stamped over it using the Build A Scripty background stamp. I then used the Bunch of Fun Circle dies and layered those (I stamped the Build A Scripty background stamp onto the back one before I layered it) LOVE the circle dies and love how many are in this set and that we can layer them YAY!!!! The sentiment is from the set Way To Go from last month's release. The daisy is from the Stitched Daisy die and I stamped it using the new Build A Scripty Background stamp on it too!


Here's another look at it from the side!


See you back here tomorrow with day two sneaks! Hugs, Leanne
