Thinking of You!

Hello my wonderfuls!! This is my first Featured Designer day for Jinger Adams since CHA and let me tell you, I've been super inspired since then! In fact, I came up with this design while I was there! It was torture to be away from my craft room, especially with this idea mulling around. ^_^

This is using Jinger Adam's Bella Vita collection! I really wanted to use the butterfly paper so I thought, why not go all the way with the idea and make a butterfly shaped card! The cardstock I used as the base was from my stash, the pearls are also from my stash and I used a "Thinking of You" Recollections stamp that I heat embossed. Everything else, including the GORGEOUS trims, were from Jinger's collection!

CHA Goodies!!!

Well my dears, this is a very exciting time. I had the opportunity to see this bad boy in person and let me tell you, it's as awesome as it looks in photos. This Craft Armoire from Jinger Adams is the newest and greatest solution to your craft storage issues. I know that I have lots of papers, embellishments, and whatnots that don't have a permanent home in my craft room. This is a great solution to that. Also, if you don't have a designated craft room, throw this puppy on a closet and you're good to go! 

Be sure to check out Jinger Adams websiteblog and her Facebook periodically for more details!

Red Fish, Blue Fish! One Fish, Two Fish!

Ok... maybe just  one red fish. :)

Hello my wonderful!! This post is super late because like always I forgot. But I blame that on how CRAZY busy I've been with the holidays and now with CHA!! I'm so excited to be here, it's like a dream come true! 

Craftwork Cards is a UK based company who invented this wonderful embellishment called "Candi". It's super fun, super cute and super easy to add to any project to make it pop! It's like a brad top. Without piercing the paper or anything! Brilliant! They have branched out to the US and I'm a proud member of the USA Craftwork Cards Design team!! 

So for today's post here's my card. I made the fish and bubbles out of Candi! Obviously I'm ready for summer... If you can't tell. ;) 


I used "School Days" Candi for this project! Which you can get here!!

Holiday MIA and a Sneek Peek!!

Boy oh boy, I LOVE the holidays but I'm glad they're over. Had lots of family stay over and lots of good food and lots of good company. This was a GREAT holiday season. 

But, it's back to reality and the reality is, is 2013 has potential to be the BEST year yet. Why you ask? Well, I have a lot of reasons myself (more on that later on in the year) but here's a great start. 

Have a SNEEK PEEK of the Heartstring Designs January Housecalls: Vintage Wonder kit!!
