Introducing A Holy Holiday, Holly Jolly and Just For You


Hi, it's Emily here, and I'm sharing the card I created for the August DT Blog Hop! I was asked to feature the A Holy Holiday stamp set. I used the reindeer, berry (for the nose), large snowflake and two-part sentiment. The mini tag is from the Holly Jolly stamp set and the small snowflake is from the Just For You stamp set, both of which are also from this release. All of these stamps will be available for purchase on September 1st and Just For You is the TAM set for September 2014.


The birch tree background was created with the Autumn Groves stamp set. The sky and hills were created with a combination of the Borders 1Stitched and Quotables dies.



Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Trav's Card Style (TCS) #5 with Savannah O'Gwynn

Hello, friends:}

Savannah O'Gwynn here today:) We are on vacation again.... and so I'm sharing a SUPER QUICK card and video! 

I have to admit that this card was really quick to make... but that's because I was forced not to mess with it! We only had 10 hours left before leaving on vacation (8 of it sleeping)! I really needed something quick! So I wanted to give Trav's Card Style (TCS) another shot...
Sometimes I have good ideas, and sometimes I don't! LOL! I think if I add just a bit of thread and staples to this card... it would be better! LOL! 

Here's the video *****Be sure to change your settings to HD before watching! THANKS!

Stitched Notebook + SALE!!!


Hi, it's Emily Leiphart here and this project features the seriously awesome Stitched Dies from Paper Smooches. I often make these little notebooks for my son and his friends to draw and craft in. Here's the video showing exactly how I make them:




I used the new Stitched Dies to give my notebook authenticity. I absolutely love these. Two of them coordinate with the hills and curve from Borders 1 and Quotables, respectively, so you can die cut twice and add stitched detailing on the edge of your hills and curves.


I used the Flowers Dies and an enamel dot to embellish the magnetic clasp. I also used my favourite stamp set of the moment, Blossoming Buds, to heat emboss the sentiment in leaf and mustard.


Don't forget, Paper Smooches is having a Summer Sale! There's no better time to order a few things from your wish list. :D




Thanks so much for stopping by!

Virtual Smooches: Birthday Cake Decorations with Savannah O'Gwynn

Hello, friends:}

Savannah O'Gwynn here today:) Today we are celebrating.... ME! It's my birthday on Tuesday and this year I wanted to make a special birthday cupcake for Trav (I'd rather have a baked potato!) using PS dies. I was inspired by THIS cake and thought, "I CAN DO THIS!!!!!!" 

I'm not sure if you would consider this an EPIC Pinterest Idea FAIL... I think my cake turned out ok... but it would have been better if I used the Bam Bubble or Hearts dies! Next time:) LOL!
