It's been awhile since I joined in on a Blog Hop... I need to fix that! To jump back into some blog hopping I have entered today's card in the:

Sparkle & Shine Technique Blog Hop
This blog hop is all about sparkle, so I pulled out some of my favorite CTMH items... shimmer pens and sequins! Continue reading to see the supplies and instructions for this sweet little card then, once you are done checking out my creation, head over to the next stop on the blog hop to see what Judy Faye has to share!


To start with I pulled out some Heather Cardstock and some White Daisy Cardstock. I cut a piece of the Heather cardstock to 11" x 4.25" and folded it in half to use as my card base.  I cut a piece of the White Daisy cardstock lar…

We all know that quality stamp sets can be a bit pricey. With this in mind I created a video showing you a few ideas to get the most out of your stamp sets. Let me know in the comments below what you think!



A brief look at the completed artwork from this video...

Stay tuned... this card will be featured in my upcoming Blog Hop entry next week.
I love creating scrapbook layouts that include family photos that have been packed away. It is like rediscovering a hug tucked into the deepest parts of my memory.
Simple, masculine, and it gets the point across!

Well, I made it! I squeaked in a "Christmas in July" card with two days of July left to go! This is a fun and easy card to make.

Today I posted a very different video than I usually share, so if this is your first time to my YouTube channel you will definitely want to check out my other videos to see what type of content I normally create. But I simply had to share this story with you...


My "craft room" is really just a space I have claimed in one side of our unfinished basement. My hubby uses the other side of the basement for his workout weightlifting room. 
Back when we first bought our house we cleaned up the basement and then we created my little craft area. I started small with a worktable and a few supplies. You may notice that behind my table are three large mirrors. 

We found those mirrors leaning against the wall with a lot of junk in our basement when …
