Thank you ALL soooooo much for the thoughts & prayers for Alexa. We got her tests back and things look great. I am still on the rollercoaster of emotions. Its hard to really explain and put into words. Yes its a happy time, but there is so much more to it. I know I am certainly looking forward to the weekend of retail therapy at CKC! But especially meeting up with some PSF’s!

My PSF Laura Sneden sent a gorgeous planter of Violets! THANK YOU!!!! Lord please help me to NOT kill them. They are the PRETTIEST purple ever.

Then there is another Laura who sent her a stunning bouquet! Laura-you didn’t include your last name! Please email me. I have so many PSF’s named Laura. I want to properly thank you. It was so sweet of you to do.

Photos will be posted this week/weekend, along with the pkg of goodies I got the other day with some cards too.

OK now today I want to share my PTI projects with you all!!! I hope you all enjoyed the release, and be sure to check out the Design Team gallery and their blogs.

Please let me know which project you liked most. I always enjoy reading the different responses and why they are such. Everyone is so different.


Loving Lavender Moon! Oh and the PAPER!! WOW!

OK here we go!

Holiday Greetings

Stamps-Mailbox Greetings
Cardstock-PTI select white
Patterned Paper by Chatterbox
Ink-Pallette black, Copic Markers, bashful blue, white StazOn
CM Wavy cutter, glitter, ribbon by Martha Stewart


This is a super cute 3D style card. The acetate layer folds up under the top flap. Snowflakes are stamped on the acetate layer so they appear to be falling from the sky. I cut the mailboxes in the middle out, and put “mail” in them! I made the wavy snow-hill with my CM wavy cutter. I think this is definitely a unique holiday card, if you are one who starts in July, or has some special people on that holiday/winter card list!

Honey Sweets Set

Stamps-Honey Bees, Beautiful Blooms
Cardstock-Lemon Tart, Spring Moss, PTI select white, vellum cardstock
Patterned Paper- Bitty Baby Blessing in Big Blossoms
Ink-White StazOn, Lemon Tart, Pallette black, Old Olive, caramel
Other-Lemon Tart twill ribbon, Spring Moss Polka Dot ribbon, Corner rounder, Bunch Bunch flower punches, stickles


I wanted to create a “sweet” gift set. I made my bees in 3 layers!
We have the bottom layer, just the body. Middle layer-bee stamped on vellum  cardstock with white stazon-then cut out for the wings-then the bee body again. Candice’s set makes the perfect bee easy!

So I got this jar at Michaels, and filled it with Rocher chocolates! I liked the jar because it seemed like an old honey jar. I found that my Punch Bunch punches made flowers similar to that of the 12 X 12 Big Blossoms paper! So it was super easy to create a 3D look. I also stamped the little bee on random places of the honey Jar.

For my hive-I stamped the honey combs onto my cardstock. Cut strips, then used a corner rounder. Dimensionals give it the ultimate dimension. When I saw Taylor’s sneak peek post I about died at how similar our creations were!

Bun in the oven

This is a cute little box, designed to look like an oven!
Inside is a cute little baby favor for the new mom to be, or shower favor!

Bun IN the oven box favor

bun-in-the-oven-side.jpg IN the oven

I took the sentiment “Bun in the oven” literally with this creation. I designed this little box, to look and open like an oven! The burner’s were done using the circle image from Father Knows Best!

bun-out-of-oven.jpg OUT of the oven

I  covered the square tin and rolled up a pair of pink, and brown socks, to look like a cinnamon bun. It fits perfectly in there, and in my oven box.

I hand cut the little oven mit card to go with the package!

Cinn-a-bun in the oven

Stamps-Favor It, Garden of Life (for the cinn-a-bun image), Border’s and Corner’s circle set
Cardstock-sweet blush, chocolate chip, PTI select white
Patterned Paper -PTI Pink Collection
Ink-Brown Stazon, Copic Marker, White StazOn
Sweet blush polka dot ribbon, sweet blush satin ribbon
Clear round tin, circle scallop nestabilties, Pillsbury cinnamon rolls, circle punches, scallop punch


I used the scallop circle nestabilties to create a pretty circle box, to hold my little circle tin, which has a cooked cinnamon bun inside it. I designed the top of the tin to look like a cinnamon bun using Garden of Life, and some white glitter, for the frosting.


A sweet little round box created using nestabilities!
Holds this little favor perfectly!

Hippity Hop Hat

Stamps-Bitty Baby Blessings, Pond Life
Ink-Pallette ink in black and Lavender Sachet
fabric, scissors, Ribbon stiff, fusible webbing, iron


When I found this bucket hat at Target I was just giddy! I knew I could make it go from a plain old hat, to one my daughter would LOVE!! The best part-no sewing required!!

I asked Amber to pick an image she wanted on the hat, and she chose the bunny. We then organized some scraps from my pile from when I use to sew!

Here is a closer view


All I needed was some black pallette ink, and a little Ribbon Stiff, and I had this cute fabric pieced bunny for her hat! The nose is liquid pearls. The sentiment uses a Lavender Sachet Pallette ink.

If you can cut, piece and iron you are on your way!

Stamps-Bitty Baby Blessings
Cardstock-PTI select white, spring moss

Little Sailor

Stamps-Bitty Baby Blessings, Borders & Corners circle set
Cardstock-PTI select white, navy, red
Ink-white craft, pallette black, copic markers
circle punch, star eyelets by Making Memories


This is a simple and adorable card for any little boy from birth to the first few years! My friend just took this card for a baby shower, where the baby boy to be, has a room , that is a Pottery Barn nautical theme. Such a sweet and simple image. I love the clean lines this has.
2 Peas in a Pod

Stamps-Bitty Baby Blessings, Green Thumb

cardstock-plum, PTI select white
Patterned Paper-Bitty Blessings in big blooms
spring moss polka dot ribbon, scallop rectangle nestabilties, punch bunch flower
punched, making memories page pebble, circle punches, stickles


THIS is my favorite project of the month. I have no idea why-it just is.

When I saw the little head image from Bitty Baby Blessings I KNEW I had to attempt to pair it with Green Thumb’s pea pod image! Well, as you can see it worked! Its this not the cutest little baby in a pea pod you have ever seen? I loved making this.

I took my punch bunch punches and re-created the same flowers as in the patterned paper!

Circus Fun invitation

Stamps-Bitty Baby Blessings
Cardstock-PRI select white, Summer Sunset, Spring Moss
Patterned Paper from Bitty Baby Blessings collection
Ink-Black pallete
other- Cutterbee, Making Memories page pebbles


I was definitely thinking Circus Fun themed birthday when I saw this image, and the patterned paper! I paper pieced the elephant, which is so fun & easy to do. punched out the 2 circles from the Big Spots, and added a page pebble to create a “ball” look to it. The elephant is suppose to be in the circus ring-get it?!

Well that is plenty of eye candy for today!

I am hoping to pull it together and get my Friday Blogger’s Challenge done, and a sketch completed for you.

Once again thank you for reading.

Till tomorrow.
