Fun to be Floral

I love this color combo. This card didn't end up how it started out in my mind, but I really like the end result. I used my crystal effects over the flower to make it *pop*. And it was so fun to use tags that I've been hoarding -- I'm still learning to let go of product! I keep telling myself use it - then you can buy more! Do you have to convince yourself to use product that you love?

Big Shot?

I'm thinking about getting the Big Shot - it's a big purchase for me, so i'm really in debate. If you have one, tell me why you love it and why i'll love it too! My biggest concern is that I'll get it and won't use it enough. I love the thought of being able to do my die cutting at home, nestabilities are at the top of my list to purchase. My mom's Christmas cards could go so much quicker with it. I'd love to hear your thougths on this machine.
I love this card for so many reasons. the colors. they layout. the simpilicity. no layers. have a great autumn day!

Apple Pie in a Jar

Short and quick today. Did you see the newsletter from Lizzie Anne? This is one of the projects of the month. I made some apple pie filling last fall and canned it and gave it away as Christmas presents. It was one of my favorite things to give. I used it for neighbors, friends, teachers, etc.

today my daughter had a friend over for lunch. Monday will be the first day of kindergarten for them both, this morning was their "orientation" - they toured the school, etc. I made these fun cupcakes from Family Fun for their lunch. They loved them! I put their names on the ones for them and these are some of the extras. So fun!

Christmas Cards

It's time to start thinking about Christmas Cards. I have a couple orders to fill besides making my own and one of my assignments for Lizzie Anne. I loved using Holiday Script. I did have a hard time finding *christmas* paper this early - it is just starting to come out and I couldn't find any I liked (I only had one option!) So I went with christmas colors - or at least what I thought I might be able to pull off as Christmas colors. This is one of my favorite cards - it was super easy to do and this is one of my favorite quotes from this set. I could see this one being duplicated in mass! I'll share the rest of the ones I made this week. Have you started your Christmas cards yet?
