Right At Home One Year Celebration


I am soooo super excited to share Nicole from right at home asked me to join them for her one year celebration...YAY! Thank you Nicole, I am so happy to be able to support you and the team in such a great accomplishment! We are using her first release set, happy mail and I wanted to use my favorite color combo. I also used some of my favorite techniques, watercoloring, paste embossing, and scattered glitter...so much fun! I have also used the sweet sentiment set script greetings and the darlin heart from christmas sentiments.

July 22nd, 2015 was the date on which I released the first stamp in my Right at Home Stamps collection called Happy Mail. To this day it continues to be one of my most popular sets. To celebrate this, I'm releasing a second version of this stamp this month called Happy Mail Year 2. 







Here is a closer look at the details and the cuuuuute flower, I luv this flower! You can see the embossing, ink splatter, and glitter too!

sunday stamps-kindness matters


be sure to comment on my birthday celebration post for your chance at wining one of my weekly giveaways this month HERE!

good morning friends, I am sharing my take of this weeks colors from sunday stamps. I must tell ya, I was totally skeered of these colors and I knew I wanted to use less of colors. The older I get the more I find myself wanting to do with less in my life....it really is more! I have used an amazing stamp set from simon says stamp, floral shapes and dies; it is prolly one of my favorite flower sets. I adore the collage group together like this without the longer stems.....so pretty! I have used the prima watercolor pans...I luv these too...they have new collections coming out....eeeccckkkk! Be sure to check out the rest of the design team creations, these gals are amazing!
