Another Bicycle Card

Good Morning!

I hope you are off to a great start to your day! It's Thursday which is always nice- almost the weekend!

I have another bicycle card to share today... I really do love that little stamp! This time I paired it with lots of little scraps of patterned paper I had in my scrap bin. Take a look:

I love adding just a little color with my Stampin' Up! markers. It's so easy and looks great! I also love the little flags from October Afternoon- aren't they fun!

Have you been peeking at all the goodies debuting this weekend at CHA? I am most excited about what Pink Paislee will be releasing. The sneaks look so perfect for spring! I am curious to see the October Afternoon lines, too- I love most of what they put out but some of their themes are a little kooky this time around!

Well, I hope you have a great day! Thanks for stopping by for a look!

Favorite Photos of 2011 Mini Book Class


How is your week going? Mine is going fast- I guess because of the 3-day weekend. I also joined the gym this week and have been spending my free time there. That's a big step for me! I don't think I've set foot in a gym for over 10 years. It feels great!

I wanted to pop on tonight and share some pictures of my next class project. I'll be teaching this little mini book at Scrapdoodles in Fredericksburg, VA on Saturday, January 28th.

I used Teresa Collins Designs Notations line to create this book. I wanted to use it to showcase my favorite family photos from 2011 but really, the Notations line is perfect for just about any theme.

You can see that each page is a little different. Little tags, tabs, and envelopes make this book a lot of fun!

I've added lots of little details here and there. I added color with a few of my favorite mists as well.

The kit comes with plenty of diecuts and letter stickers to decorate each page any way you'd like to.

I had lots of fun putting this little book together. I hope you can join me for class!

Here are the class details:

Please bring your basic tool kit as well as your favorite edge punches and any mists you would like to use in your book.

If you are interested in joining me for class, please call down to Scrapdoodles at (540) 548-3788 to sign up.

Well, hope you are enjoying your evening! Thanks for stopping by to see what I'm up to!

Friendly Bike Card


Hope you are having a great day! I had a little time before dinner so I thought I'd pop on and blog for a bit! Today was my day off and it has been so nice and relaxing- I had a coffee date with my hubby, dropped off some goodies at the post office, and got caught up on all my favorite guilty pleasure shows! I missed the first hour of Downton Abbey on Sunday and wanted to watch it before it was on again. I also watched last week's Project Runway Allstars- I chose to watch Greys Anatomy instead but this week PRA won out! They have made some incredible things so far- very inspiring!

I'm sure most of you don't come for the chit chat so here is the card I wanted to share- it uses a favorite new stamp of mine from Hero Arts:


Stamp: Hero Arts
Markers: Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Stampin' Up! and Bazzill Basics
Patterned Paper: October Afternoon Sidewalks 8x8 pad
Crochet Ribbon: Stampin' Up!
Rhinestones: Stampin' Up!
Letter Stickers: October Afternoon

I have been reaching for this Sidewalks 8x8 pad alot lately. I love the spring feel and the color scheme it has. The bike stamp is also new and has gotten a lot of love lately, too! It is so easy to color and really, you could leave it as is and it would look just as cute! I wish I had a bike with a basket full of flowers! Hee!

Well, I hope you have a great weekend! I am looking forward to some fun with my friends and my sweet niece's birthday party on Sunday- I can't wait!

Thanks for stopping by!

Nana and Baby Natalie


Hope your week is going well! Mine is going by fast so far- I can't believe it's already Wednesday! Wednesday has turned in to my favorite day because I get a whole 3 hours all to myself. I know some of you other stay-at-home moms can relate! Hee! I love my time with my family but it's also nice to have a little break! :)

Anyways, I have a page to share today- I made it to showcase one of my favorite pictures of my mother-in-law with my sweet Natalie just after she was born:

I used the Vintage Vogue line from Pink Paislee for this page because it worked so well with the colors in the picture. I really love this line and also made a couple of cards with it. Hopefully I can share those this week, too.

Here is a closer look at the cluster details around the title:

Another little detail:

I had fun putting this page together. Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at it today!

Floral Thanks Card


How's your first week in 2012 going? We're having a great week here- the girls started back to school and I'm back to work this morning- the little guy I baby sit i here to play all day! After so long off, I hope I can keep up with him all day! :)

I have a card to share- another with some new goodies from Stampin' Up! The DSP is from the Sale-a-bration catalog and it is sooo pretty! I love the fresh color scheme:

All products by Stampin' Up!

It was fun playing with all the new goodies! I definitely have a wish list for the new mini and Sale-a-bration catalogs!

I'm going to keep this short today- little Quincy is already into trouble! Hee! Thanks for stopping by!
