Well its Wednesday! We are half way through the week-WHEW!

Today JustRite Stampers is the  product focus on SCS. You can see that HERE!

They are reviewing-

 Merry Little Christmas Borders & Centers Round 1-5/8”

Holiday Demi Phrases Round 2”

and Wood Stamper 2″ with Bonus 15pt Font & Center

There is a video on how to use the 2″ stamper–>HERE!

So, I thought I’d share a sample with you too 😀

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas……


I ended up singing that Christmas song to myself the entire time I was making this! LOL!

This was made to look like a hanging holly wreath.

I embossed my mistletoe with gold, then colored it in using my copic markers


I then embossed the sentiment, in gold, on gold cardstock, and punched with a 1 3/8 circle.

That was then layered onto a scallop circle from Marvy (pink punch). I added some red adhesive rhinestones for my “berries”

This was actually a quick and simple card. I think you could definitely mass produce this version for the holidays, or use it for a gift set 😀

My paper and ribbon are all from Papertrey Ink.

    Amber and her invitation

    Amber is an August birthday, so we always celebrate with a party Mid-September, since people are usually away on vacation and whatnot in August.

    This year she wants a  Pretty Princess Costume Party! These are her invites from LAST YEAR—>HERE! You can also see the Disney Stamp set there too (used for flowers on invite this year)

    We will use a My Timeless Template for the Princess party favors (not sure which one yet! Thinking something like —> THIS! <— BUT, she hasn’t decided-and I’m waiting for a head count-Ill share once they are done!). We have a Castle pinata, and I ma having a Castle cake made, with matching Lollipops.

    We are making crowns, frames, and necklaces too for the party activities. I may also let them decorate their template box favors too!

    She has a STUNNING Sleeping Beauty costume, complete with glittery shoes, crown, and light up wand.

    She picked out everything for her party.

    For the invites, they totally had to meet her approval, and she made many helpful suggestions 😀


    I blurred out the personal info-just so you know the invites are defective!

    This is the invite in its entirely.

    I used her fave color-Hibiscus Burst (Sleeping Beauty wears pink too!) She was totally into telling me what she HAD to have! She is quite the little paper crafter! I’ll share some stuff she made after this.

    I cut the main layer using the Labels 8 nestability. What a pretty way to layer a girly invite 😀

    I printed the info on my computer, ensuring it would fit when die cut with the smaller layering Labels 8.

    Amber chose this carriage byImaginisce as her focus. Really cute choice, and it was only $1!!


    I colored it with Copic markers.

    Amber said “It needs lots of glitter!” So I added the glitter. A definite nice touch!

    She then said it needed “grass”, so I added the green layer.

    She then said it needed jewels-so I put some on the wheels.

    Lastly she wanted a fancy border-so we matted it with the black scallop layer.

    Smart girl!

    Then it was all layered.

    Well, the thought the bottom was plain and wanted me to put flowers!


    So I used the Disney Princess set from last year  (linked above) masked each one, since it was already adhered with dimensionals, and added the flowers.

    She was right! A real WOW!

    If THAT wasn’t enough, she wanted a REAL flower on them too!

    SO I got out my Prima’s and called it a day!



    Amber was SOOOOO happy. She kept telling me how beautiful they were, and she knows how hard I worked on them. It was REALLY sweet. Her teacher said that each one she handed out, she would say “My mom made these special for the party, and worked really hard, so you can never throw it in the trash” She said it was HILARIOUS!! Can you tell she listens to my EVERY word 🙂

    I was then asked my 3 teachers to do party planning for them. Um, NO thank you! I have all I can do to get my own kids party stuff done! LOL!

    The last week of September Alexa will be 10!!

    I was going to have a party, but 10 is HUGE! I REALLY want to get her tickets to the Miley Cyrus concert instead, that comes Nov. 9th to Boston MA but tickets are STARTING at over $200, for BALCONY and most are sold out :C So I’m crossing my fingers I can find something before her b-day. It would be a dream come true for her, and a GREAT way to celebrate 10! Wish me luck on that! I don’t have $500 for 2 tickets!!

    OK now time for some things Amber had made on her own


    This was for her teachers at the end of the year in Pre-K. I’m not sure WHY the main layer is at the lower rigth-but it was HER project!


    Mrs Slater

    then Mrs Bartlett


    She then wrote their names going around the heart! So cute


    She even picked what she wanted to write inside herself!

    Then when we had our friends daughter’s first birthday party, Amber wanted to make her own tag for the gift


    She did the whole thing herself 😀


    Yes, she LOVES the images from The Greeting Farm

    She always likes to pick out her own images.

    She colored it herself in colors of her choice, added her own glitter, and cut it out too! I helped her punch the flowers and tag, but that was it!

    Then this past weekend we had a boy’s double birthday to go to. She totally took the pressure off me to have a card made, by making ot for me 😀  (WHEW! Off the hook! LOL!)


    She stamped them and colored them herself-asking for help with the sentiment, so it was straight 😀

    This stamp set is by Lizzie Anne-Gizmos and Gears

    I think she will take my job some day! LOL!

    I’m so happy to see how much she enjoys something I enjoy too. All my kids love crafts, but she loves the stamping. Alexa LOVE writing and just coloring, and Noah, well he prefers video games, but I’d say he mostly enjoys the cooking craft stuff we do most.

    OK signing off now! I have my Papertrey Ink peeks to prepare for  TOMORROW! SO excited.

    See you then!
