Scrapping the Little Things!

Today for "Scrapping The Little Things" over at My Creative Time,  I have created a page about ME, my journey and a huge milestone that I just achieved.

I used FIFTEEN.....yes you read right....15 MCT products to complete this layout.  We were provided this sketch: 
Can I tell you a little secret?   I LOVE WORKING WITH SKETCHES!!  Everything comes together so easy.  Here is my 12x12 layout:

I also just my water colors, PTI card stock, American Crafts card stock, American Craft pattern paper, Hero Arts Ink, Gold Vellum from Joanns and SU jewel basic.

Thanks for stopping by.  See you later this week for another project ;)

Try Me Tuesday with My Creative Time

Todays' project is inspired by the "Slide Puzzle/Game" we played with as little kids.  I had a great time with the Tim Holtz Distress Inks for this one.  Been loving the bright colors.

Here is my card:

Inspiration Wednesday with My Creative Time

Hey friends!  Been a super busy girl with lots of fun home renovations.  We finally finished my sons room and the kids bathroom.  It's so awesome to be married to a handy man ;)

I want to share my Inspiration Wednesday project for My Creative Time.  Todays inspiration came from my Jamberry chevron nail wraps.  I made a video and a blog post about it yesterday.  

Hope you like.....


Also used some Papertrey Ink card stock, Hero Art Ink, twine and decorative tape.

See you next week!!

Jamberry nail wraps?!?!?!?!

A couple months ago, my design team sister, Leanne, became an independent consultant for Jamberry nails.  After she posted a few pictures on Facebook, I decided to give them a try and OH BOY....I'M HOOKED!!! 

Those of you that follow my videos on YouTube, know I ALWAYS have my nails painted.  I LOVE PRETTY NAILS.  Although I keep them short, I have a long nail bed which makes my nails appear long.   I personally LOVE short nails.

Here is my first try at these Jamberry nail wraps:
and I also created a video showing how I applied them:

Check back next Monday for an update on how they held up ;)

Thrifty Thursday

Thrifty Thursdays have to be one of my favorite project assignments with My Creative Time.  I always love to use up my scraps vs. putting them away.  This week, I used up a scrap piece of paper that I used to create my beach theme card from release week.  It was already distressed in orange and pink so it was perfect for my seahorse.

I'm also really in love with the Bunch of Fun Circles set from My Creative Time.  LOVE making shape cards with the wavy one.

Wishing all my bloggy friends a fun and safe 4th of July weekend.   See you all next week!

Hugs, T

Ninja Turtle Party!!

Happy Tuesday!! 

I'm so excited that this is a short week AND this entire month, I am off every Monday!! Work has been crazy so I need a little break ;)  We've also been working so much around the house but love the way it's coming out.  There is still a lot to do but it's coming along.

So this past weekend was my nephews Ninja Turtle theme birthday party.  My sister in law asked me to create the banner and to make the centerpieces.

I had posted these photos on Instagram a couple weeks ago:

The Ninja Turtle faces for the center pieces were larger than the ones I created for the banner.  Then I also cut out two stars for each centerpiece and added the "G" for his name and the "5".  Here are some pictures from the party.  My sister in law bakes so all the chocolate covered oreos, cupcakes, the cake, the cake pops, rice crispy chocolate covered treats and the chocolate covered/sugar coated marshmallow treats were made by her.  SHE'S AMAZING!!!!!

Hey bloggy friends!!!!  WOW last week was so amazing with all the new My Creative Time release products.  I had so much fun!!!

Well work has been SUPER BUSY......then our home life has been crazy.  We are remodeling the kids bathroom, painting the entire house, getting some new furniture, donating tons and tons of items we no longer use/ much fun stuff going on but oh so exhausting.

Today for Made in Minutes, I created a cute and simple tag to go along with some doggy treats.  My entire family LOVES dogs and we all have two brothers, my two sisters and even our parents.  Every now and then I love to make little doggy treat bags for them for a little unexpected surprise.  Here is what I came up with.  The tag literally took me five minutes to put together.


As some of you know, my flip camera died a couple weeks ago BUT......I just purchased a new video camera (Canon Vixia HF R500) specifically for my craft videos so those should be back soon.  I have a few videos I want to share with you all including the MCT speech bubble shaker card I created last month so stay tuned.  It may still be a couple weeks before I get them up but they are coming.....
I promise ;)
