Well it is finally here! The Papertrey Ink Release!

All samples shown here today use supplies from PTI! So check it out. 

I am wiped people! Thank you for the prayers for my family! We will need them.

Now Im keepin it short and sweet because I have a few busy days ahead of me, and time is a ticking.

I want to say thank you for all your sweet comments, emails and support! Creating is my one true stress outlet. I don’t know where I’d be without papercrafting.

OK let’s get started. I hope you get some inspiration from what I had time to make 😀

WOW! What can I say about Everyday Button Bits!


When I saw the “hot air balloons” I about fell out of my chair! One thing I LOVE about living in small town, EVERY year, first week in August we have a Hot Air Balloon Rally here in Pittsfield. It is the highlight f our summer! Amber’s birthday is the following week and she THINKS the entire town gets together to celebrate HER birthday! LOL! She cracks me up. How do you tell her its NOT for her?

Anyway……..seeing this set I just swooned.


The mix of paper patterns on this is just plain fun!

I wanted to use my circle punches and various papers to create my hot air balloons. You don’t have to use ONLY buttons with this set! You can have a world full of uses! Buttons are the jumping point.

I LOVE this card! The colors, the layout….all of it. Just makes me SO happy.

I absolutely LOVE Lisa’s set! I wished I had more time to use it 😀

So adorable, with many uses and possibilities. You can bet you will see more of this one!!

TOTAL love!


I created a SIMPLE scene by using patterned paper, as wall paper. Easy peasy.
I made my couch ultra 3D by stamping and cutting it out twice. The bottom being popped out an additional time. Then adding the 3D pillow

Another layout I loved creating!
I had fun with this nautical style set! Perfect for any “guy”. I loved all the elements it had! I obviously cut each one out and had fun layering the images. The compass and star at stamped lightly with the tea dye ink duo. Did some scant weathering!


I ADORE the oar image especially!

My family always took day-cations 😀 to Maine, and this reminds me of that time.
