My Creative Time Throwback Thursday Challenge - Font

Hi Friends!

When Emma announced her Throwback Thursday Challenge for this week, I was super excited.  She asked us to use a font cartridge, but we could use an image from an older font cartridge.  How fun, right!?  My entry to her challenge is about as Throwback as it gets for me... I used Doodletype.  The fourth cartridge I bought for my Cricut!  I used my  Cri-Kits to draw the image and then cut the keys separately and added a bunch of glossy accents all over.  I was really excited about this card and can't wait to use it!

Thank you so much for visiting today.  Be sure to check out My Creative Time! to see all the beautiful entries!

Gift Bag and Matching Thank You Card

Hi Friends!

I hope everyone is doing well.  I sure am these days!  Thank you to my new followers and for all your nice comments!  They sure keep me going on my crafting journey! 

I made this card and bag a little bit ago to thank my sweet Aunt for taking me and my girls to our local zoo.  She spoiled them for sure!  I used my favorite Heidi Swapp flowers as well as her awesome stamps for the "thank you" on the card.  The bling is also from her line.  Love her! 

Thank you so much for visiting!

Meet the KinderStampO Guest Design Team Blog Hop!

As you can see from the picture, I was selected to be on KinderStampO's first Guest Design Team!  I about died from excitement when she announced she was looking for team members and you can imagine how I absolutely flipped out over the message she sent me saying I was selected!

 The motto at KinderStampO is "Live. Craft. Inspire."  Jessica asked each of her members to take those words and tell you a bit about ourselves:

Live.  I live a great life with my awesome husband of 11 years, and our two daughters, ages 5 and 2.  We have a miniature pinscher who is the craziest member of our family. I have been a stay-at-home Mom since November of 2005and I feel so lucky that I get to be with my girls all day!  It's been so fun to see them enjoy rubber stamping, and designing their own cards and pages.  It melts my heart!  Life really is wonderful!!

Craft.  My crafting style is ever changing. I absolutely love metal, bling, and clean lines.  I started crafting in 1996, using only brass embossing templates and a glue stick... My how times have changed!  My true loves are my Cricut and Gypsy.  You won't find me doing many crafts without them.  I'm addicted to acrylic stamps, and try to use them in most of my projects.  I'm constantly on the lookout for any new techniques or products that I can try. I love crafting tools and have a vast collection of eyelet setters, paper trimmers, and wire cutters.  I really never can have enough crafting supplies!!

Inspire.  I find inspiration in all facets of my life.  Grocery shopping, laundry, pedicures... The list goes on!  I love to get out and experience things, and my hope is that you can find inspiration from all of the amazing team members and get out there and craft! 

I would like to thank Jessica for giving me this once in a lifetime opportunity.  She is such an amazing crafter and so sweet.  She definitely makes some of the coolest things I've seen.  I hope you're excited as all of us are, and I cannot wait to get started!

For a chance to win some blog candy from KinderStampO, please visit the Facebook Page and let them know I sent you.  You can also leave a comment on each of the Guest Designer's Blogs and one lucky winner will win a prize from KinderStampo!!
