Sneaks for ya!

I have some sneaks for ya! I decided to try out for another term as a DT member for Your Scrapbook Stash. I thought about not doing it, since doing an entire family military move is hard, not having a place to live when we get there and then settling down when we finally did find a place was hard enough. But I love the company too much and they are really good to their Design Team so it is well worth it!

Here's a couple of sneaks of the 2 LO's I turned in for my submission. I thought I took detailed pics of the other submission but I didnt so I couldnt post them. I will though once the call is done.

Wish me luck you guys, I really want to be back in the team.

Hello Beautiful!
I really like how theses LO's turned out. And no matter what...if I make the team or not atleast I have 5 gorgeous projects that I am proud of.
That's it you guys. I cant wait to share the stuff completely but for now this will have to do. Thanks for passing by and hope you have a great day!

Last minute work!

Here's a LO for June and some 3x3 cards for May assignments that I created. I was really taking out some stress by scrappin. Because of that I was able to create more than what I needed for my assignments which is always great!

Anyhoo, here they are.


Used up some of my scraps from Aprils DT kit featuring Little Yellow Bicycle TWIG line for this LO. I am actually surprise that I was able to complete a LO with what I had left from the line. NICE!

Used some Heidi Swapp felt butterflies for a pop of color! Love it.

Here are some 3x3 cards using Teresa Collins POSH line that I was able to crank out at the last minute for my May DT assignments. Created them using scraps as well. Man I am doing sooo good using up scraps. Hey, you would be amazed how much you can get done when you put your mind to it.

I am going to give these to my kids teachers for their going away presents along with other cards I made for them. It's like an assortment of cards ya know! I am happy with they turned out. I think they are so cute. You can use them as cards or as tags. They are very handy!

Ok, that's it for now.

By now I should be on the road driving and on our way to Texas. Wish me luck and pray we get there safely and in good time. I hope I don't melt and get use to the HEAT fast. Living in Washington for 2 years, my body has gotten used to the cold. If it passes 60 degrees, we go nuts like its the best thing since slice bread. So I am hoping that the Texas Heat don't kill me. Yikes!

Thanks for passing my humble blog and hope you have a great day!

Echo Park SPLASH!

Hey, hey! Here are some more YSS projects for you guys.

I was also given SPLASH line from Echo Park this month and they are so fun. The colors are so bright and fresh. Perfect for summer LO's and cards.

But first, I have to tell you guys something. I started creating my June projects way early using old products from previous months, cuz I wasnt sure my box would get here in time to make my June assignments. And because of that when my box got here I had to hurry up and create more projects with them. I was bit stressed out, cuz at the same time I was getting ready for the move (as you all know by now).

Anyway, these couple of pages are whipped up in a matter of a day.

So I am sorry for the poor picture not only cuz I was rushing to get them done but the fact that it's still gloomy here in Wa. and hard to get good pictures. So excuse me in advance.

Heat Wave!

Here are a couple of cards I created using the line.

Ugh! This picture came out so bad. Sorry for that!

I had fun with this next LO! I used up tons of the coordinating stickers from the line to create a beach scene.
Here are some detailed shots!
That's it for SPLASH for now! I am gonna come back and post a couple more LO's I think that I created as extra for my June assignment.

Hey! Make sure you guys check out the YSS Store if you want to pick up your own EP Splash collection. They are way better in person, my pics do not do them justice AT ALL! Phew!

Hope you all have a great day!

Cards, cards, cards and more cards

Here are some more Basic Grey SWEET THREADS line for ya. I couldn't really help myself and had to make a bunch of cards. I used up mostly pieces of pattern paper, journaling spots, ribbons and stickers that coordinate with the line to make the cards. I used Stampin Up embossing folder and butterfly die cut. I mixed up BG and Echo Park (yellow PP).

Left this one sentiment free! I make most of my cards that way, that way I can use it with whatever I need at a moments notice.

Used Creative Charms pink pearls and SRM sticker smile sentiment for this card.
Used Stampin Up Journey Define your life stamps in the butterfly.


This is a very simple card using 3 pieces of arrow stickers and SRM (live, laugh, love) to create

the sentiment for the card. I know I am not the best card maker out there and my cards are simple, but I am really into it right now. I am telling you, I am slowly filling my card box again. Yay, for me! Which is always great cuz I have been using my cards up. Needing some refilling, that's for sure. Thanks for letting me share and hope you guys have a great day!

Whew! I am hit with a TRIPLE WHAMMY this month.

First:This is officially my last month term as a DT member for Your Scrapbook Stash.

So I am really sad. Booo!

Two: I am a little bit STRESSED OUT due to another military move.

Three: I don't have much time to do my projects due to the craziness happening around me.

I am cleaning, packing, sorting, organizing and purging...along with the everyday chores I have to do. It is a major pain the (A$$)you know what! Just when I think I am getting caught up I have a mountain size pile of laundry to be done, sink is full of dirty dishes and dinner is yet to get started. Goodness, this is a hot mess. Anyways....

On to some scrapping news. I was so lucky though, cuz this month I was able to play with some gorgeousness! Basic Grey SWEET THREADS line is soooo pretty! Man Erica sure knows how to make a girl feel better. ;p

I created a Sketch for ya and here it is!


Here's a close up of some details.

Man I am so impressed with myself! I cant believe I was able to finish all my June assignment ahead of schedule and able to turn them in and do my blog post. YES!

I think, because I am so stressed out with a bunch of stuff that I have to do around the house that, actually sitting down and scrappin released some of the stress. What ever it is I am grateful I am done and finish. Whew!

So, hope you all enjoyed what I was able to do with all my YSS work. Thank you for supporting me and leaving me wonderful comments. I am so appreciative of all of you. I am gonna try and do some post for my blog, before we start our move so there are some posting here. But still not sure. I am working on it so wish me luck.

Hope you all have a great day!
