Gina K. And Etsy Inspired #24!!

I've got lots of Gina K. shares today..........................As most of you know, Gina's father recently passed away. I just wanted to be able to send a card to let her know I care..........I wish I would have had some wonderful words of wisdom to share........but I didn't.........and I don't. But I do know that just to see that so many people care, it truly does make it just a teeny, tiny bit more bearable. Not better, because we aren't the ones that can heal the hurt and pain from death.........but just to be able to send a hug and a prayer can make that burden seem just the least bit lighter.

This is the card I sent to Gina............it uses Melanie's Hand In Hand set and Asela's Flowers For Daisy set. If you would like to send her a card her address is:

Gina Krupsky
4701 Dale-Curtin Drive
McFarland, WI 53558

This is the card I sent to Gina's mom.........it uses Gina's own Take Flight set. If you would like to send her mother a card, her address is:

Ruth Aurelio
P.O. Box 164
McFarland, WI 53558

This card is also for the weekly Etsy Inspired Challenge, this is #24........Ashley picks such cute Etsy shops and we each interpret that and make some projects to help you all get your mojo flowing and participate!!!! Each week the Etsy shop Ashley picks donates a prize to the winner!!! So browse around this week's shop, JennyBunny, (look under her sold items to find more photos!) get inspired and create a card or other project and then link your project in a post on Ashley's Blog before next Saturday!!! It's that easy!!! Check out my fellow DT girls for some more fabulous inspiration!!! And hugs to Ashley as she still isn't feeling well!!!!

Heather
Joy
Kerry
Lindsay

Sara ~ Feb. Guest

I made this little treat holder........well, I'm experimenting with some ways to make some little gifties..........and watermarks too obviously..........but I forget to use it on most of my photos!!!! LOL This is a simple 2, 5, 7, 10 box that I made using the SCS Template.......and I'm getting addicted at how simple but cute they can be!!! I used Melanie's Cuddles & Hugs set for this.........and Copics.......still practicing!!! LOL And those are super yummy Hot Cocoa Kisses!!!!

This was for a past Etsy challenge......I love the look of Swiss Dots and roses!!! The gorgeous rose image is from Melanie's A Year In Flowers set. I stamped the roses in Pretty In Pink and colored the stems with a Copic and then ran it thru the Cuttlebug. The sentiment came from Melanie's Say It With Flowers stamp set.
I hope you all get to enjoy a wonderful weekend just spending time with those you love!!!!!
Have a Happy Hearts Day and have a happy heart!!!!!

Smiley from millan.net

It's a FABulous Unity Stamps Wednesday!!! Well, it's snowy and blowy here, so what better than some home-made goodness??? Yep.........this is one of our family's most favorite recipes EVER!!! Pumpkin Bread.........ohhhh the cinnamon, nutmeg and clove aroma is heavenly as it bakes!!!


Here's a little gift tag I was gonna display on a freshly baked loaf..............however.............my daughter decided that the loaves needed to be immediately cut into squares and put in serving bowls..........why??? I have ZERO idea on how her mind works!!!! LOL So you'll just have to imagine that lovely pumpkin bread loaf!!! ;) I used my new Homemade By kit!!! How fun these will be for recipe cards and collections!!!!
And here's the recipe!!! Yes, I'm sharing it with you all!!! Trust me.........you are gonna LOVE it!!!! Again I used the Homemade By kit..........and had to use some bling of course!!! It's 6x6....now to eventually finish putting lots of recipes together and making a little family recipe collection!!!

Now it's also another Beautiful BELLI Wednesday!!!! What is a Belli Challenge? Each week, Chrissy gives us a challenge that will use things we have lying around our stamp rooms or homes! With a constant flow of new things coming out, we tend to forget about the other things we have and they quickly become clutter! This week's challenge is to use DOILIES!!!! You know, I've never used a doily in a card before!! And yet I have 3 packages of heart doilies that were just sitting there waiting patiently!!! LOL So I combined a white heart doily with my new Love Grows kit!!! OMGosh do I LOVE this kit!!! I totally had a BLAST making this card.....what do you think?? Maybe I'm finally learning to broaden out my style a bit, eh??!!!! LOL Remember to play along and comment on Chrissy's Blog with a link to your challenge!!!

Growing In Unity, Day 2......I've Been Thinking....

Smiley from millan.net

Welcome to Day 2 of Growing In Unity!!! Are you a Unity Stamp addict like me?? So do you just love books and journals as much as I do??? I LOVE notebooks and journals especially!!! I'm starting one right now with all the POWERful and MEANINGful quotes I see and hear........especially some truly special ones from Angela who is amazing and inspiring!!!! Back-to-school shopping has been one of my most favorite times ever to shop!!! And I homeschool!!! LOL But all the notebooks are on such good sales and I just have to stock up.........I attempt to dodge the looks from hubby reminding me that I have quite a stash still from the past year or so!!!

Well, now that I've discovered this FABulous world of stamping and paper crafting.........I have a reason to constantly stock up!!! Journals and calendars and notebooks make such WONderful gifts!!!! Now I've got to start making some matching pens too!!! LOL

I found this little album/sketchbook and thought it would be fun to alter! I unbent the rings and took off the covers and then used Basic Grey Bittersweet dsp. I used a sharp little razor to cut out the squares and then replaced the spiral. I used the dainty Dandelions from the August KOM and cut them out and popped them up..........the sentiment is sooooo perfect for a journal!!! And then just adding some bling and ribbon......well, of COURSE there has to be bling and ribbon!!! LOL I painted the flowers with some Shimmerz.........kinda hard to capture....but I love the glitz!!! Gotta give a shout out to Mandy at Limelight Papercrafts for all my bling and also for carrying Unity Stamps!!!!

Hope you're enjoying my Unity Week so far and definitely stop in tomorrow!!! Thanks so much for all the AMAZING and sweet comments!!! I'm truly blessed with such a phenomenal group of crafty women!!! LOL.....wait......maybe I should say **crafting** women instead of **crafty**!!!!!

There are some FABulous new kits out too you've got to go see!!! Here's just a quick post for today to start my week........


So I finally got a chance to use this PRECIOUS peacock from the January Kit of the Month!!!! Having bronchitis and a sinus infection at the same time has seriously been NO FUN!!! But I finally got some antibiotics and felt like creating!!! And of course the very first peacock I made HAD to be PINK!!!!!!!! LOL I know you all really did expect that!!!! ;) Using the gorgeous Basic Grey Bittersweet dp and plenty of bling.........I had fun with this pink and black color combo!!! I used just a bit of stickles on some of the peacock feathers too! I thought this sentiment that's also part of the KOM was so perfect for this pink, precocious and princessy peacock!!! LOL
Stop by for more fun with Unity Stamps tomorrow!!!!

HHH In The Limelight!!!!!

It's the 6th!!!!!!! You know what that means??? It's the Limelight Six Chicks Special Project!!!! And my very first special project as I'm a new Chick!!!! :) It's also HHH after a fun romp and a Hip Hop Thursday on SCS.........and since Limelight Papercrafts loves Unity and carries lots of wonderful Unity Stamps.....it's a perfect combination!!!


My project is a complete Gift Set..........starting with a little Note Card. The dp I used is SU, but everything else is from Limelight Papercrafts including lots of the amazing Unity stamps!!! I used the butterfles and a sentiment from the December Kit of the Month and the August Kit of the Month. You can find the White Satin Ribbon and the Pink Ribbon and the always beautiful Rhinestones at Limelight!!! You know how I LOVE my bling!!!! LOL
Now this Butterfly Chipboard Album I bought at Limelight............'cuz I LOVE Butterflies and I've wanted to try altering one of these!! Mandy has some really fun chipboard albums and I'll be trying some of the other ones soon!!! I thought some various butterflies from Butterfly Beauty and Spunky Princess along with the KOM butterflies would be fun to decorate with thru the album.......along with a few sentiments from Mix Up of Cuteness and Something Within and Love Grows. There are also places left for my friend to put some little photos that are special to her!! Lots of different fun ribbon...just go take a look at all the gorgeous RIBBON Mandy carries!!!


And of course I also used Kaisercraft Blush Pearls along with Kaisercraft Champagne Pearls and then some Kasiercraft Mint Green Rhinestones. Seriously.....I totally adore the bling that Mandy carries!!!! I'm in heaven!!! LOL

I thought I'd also make a quick matching Journal...........I just {{{heart}}} all these butterflies!!!! And Ribbon and Bling make any notebook special!!!



So here's a photo of the complete set!! I truly had such fun creating this......and I think and hope it's a gift that my friend would really just love and cherish!!! And I hope you enjoy checking out all the amazing projects that the Six Chicks and Mandy have to share!!!!
