Dashing Deer Card

Hey everyone, I am finally back on my blog today and I am sharing a project I created for a Christmas card series over on my YouTube channel.  Today is project #9 and I created this project using the Dashing Deer stamp and die set from My Favorite Things (one of my favorite companies).  I […]

Christmas Stocking Stuffer

I am always trying to come up with fun ideas for stocking stuffers for my family at Christmas.  I usually try to put something in that either I have made or my husband has made.  He is a woodworker and has made some really cool things in the past like personalized cutting boards, clocks, etc.  […]

Spooky Ghouls & Goblins

I love Halloween…always have.  I love a good haunted house, creepy story or scary movie.  When we were in Kingston this summer, we went on the Haunted Walk of Kingston tour. It was fun and was steeped in haunted house lore from one of Canada’s most historic little cities. I wanted to document this experience […]


At some point, I blinked and my baby was turning 23…that is a little startling!!  We celebrated her birthday together this year since I was in the city for a workshop and it landed on just the perfect date.  It was nice to be with her for her birthday…that doesn’t always work out.  Brady got […]

Not Everyday Food

Thanksgiving= family and food 🙂  That much I know to be true.  My sweet sister and BIL invited Jordan and Paule to enjoy Thanksgiving with them.  I was so grateful they could be together.  My sister is an amazing cook…not even cook…chef!  She snapped some photos and sent them to me, so of course I […]

For our first project, we decided to create a gratitude themed project.  I am scrapping two photos of Bailey and Brady that were taken as part of a photo […]

World Card Making Day 2017

I really love to make cards!  I find making a card very therapeutic–it takes a very short time to create a simple card (a little work of art) that you can give to someone and make their day.  Little acts of kindness in a crazy world…that makes a big impact!!  Today I am giving you […]

Scrapbook and Cards Today Project

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!!  It’s a tough time to be super positive; however, it’s a great time to think about what we are thankful for… I created this “gratitude” card for the Scrapbook and Cards Today blog using a free cut file designed by Nicole Nowosad (click the link to […]

Carta Bella “Hello Fall”

There is something so very appealing to me about fall this year…I think it might be the result of a scorching hot prairie summer with little rain…or the fact that fall will bring winter, winter will bring Christmas and Christmas will bring my boy home to me again!! My layout today is about being thankful […]
