YES! I really did have a project for My Timeless Template Challenge <—–click there to see challenge details. My team totally ROCKED out the templates! I’m in awe.

Another short and sweet post since I feel like the WALKING DEAD, and I have that field trip to go one. Its a LONG nature hike-GOOD TIMES! (NOT!)

For my project today I used my newest template Ready, Set, Wrap! I really love that one. Gets a great gift wrap done in a jiffy 😀

I was just seriously delayed in photographing and editing it 😀 SO I apologize for that. Sometimes LIFE gets in the way.


Here is my gift item:

Made with love


This is a large cuttlebug die. It has 3 or 4 matching embossing folders with it. I NEVER use it (insert shocked face here!) but now is the perfect time! I love how I was able to make a window in my Ready, Set, Wrap box!

I love purple AND butterflies so this was EASY PEASY for me. Once I saw that paper I KNEW that it was perfect.

So there was NO waste here either. I used the die cut pieces-that were left over from creating my window butterfly, and layered them together to use as a keytag! I love that 😀

Here is the closer view of the stamped window.


It reads: Made with love, and has a flower that I colored using my Singlo Opaque pens.

I used the JustRite Stampers set: Tiny words & Borders in white StazOn to make it. Its so sweet and subtle! You can also get them here

Inside are some Raspberry chocolates from Seattle something. All I knew was they matched my project, so I was happy. Can you tell Im sick! Im totally brain dead these days! YIKES! Can’t remember ANYTHING. Oh and too lazy to go find the info! LOL! SORRY :C


The paper is PTI pale plum, and Lavender moon, and the patterned paper NEW! to me. NO IDEA who makes that-sorry. I chopped it all up :D) Feels good to not HOARD it. Sorta!

The flowers are by American Crafts. I think they are a nice touch.

Well that is it for me.

Wish me luck on the field trip 😀

I have been uber busy creating so I hope to share LOTS more soon!

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you play along with the challenge!

Where did it go?

OK over the next day or so you may notice weird things on my blog. Things missing, changing, popping up or that don’t belong!

My subscribers thingy is gone as well as MUCH more-Splitcoaststampers is the host of my blog, and they are making some changes-so this is effecting my blog till its all sorted out.

That being said when you comment I have NO IDEA, and a bunch of other stuff.

HOPEFULLY it will be sorted out soon.

Just wanted to update you on my ISSUES

This is going to be short and sweet as I think I now have a horrible sinus infection, and I need to take Amber’s pre-school to a very LONG field trip tomorrow, so I NEED to rest. Didn’t help that I forced myself to stay awake to watch the first episode of the Bachelorette!!

Not sure if Ill be able to walk and drive all that way through tomorrow if I dont get better ASAP! AND handle a big group of 4-5 yo! Coffee with a turbo shot will be my best friend tomorrow.

That being said-WOW! I make a LOT of stuff. Sometimes so much that I FORGET I have certain samples to share :C

So I thought I’d post a few that were lost but not forgotten! This is just from my All That Scraps folder. (I keep each company in a separate folder so I can stay ORGANIZED! But have made SO much sometimes that I forget :C)

This is Bathing Beauty Emma


As you can see Im am just stuck on her being Strawberry Shortcake! I love her!

Sentiment was perfect-it is from AmyR Beach sentiments (AMY that is my fave of yours to date :D) I love the mix of bold and that other fun font! Serious must have!!

Here is a close up


I just masked and airbrushed my sun. I did my little dotted sand for her to sit in. I just love her to pieces.

Its sad you can see the shimmer this card has as I colored the water and shells with my WATER COLORSthat are pearlescent. They are the BEST!!!

Added a real shell for interest, but overall wanted it to be very clean and simple


You can sort of see my sky. This does look super cute in real life 😀
