Welcome to KinderStampO's Theme-spired Saturday!


Welcome to another "Theme-spired Saturday" with Jess - KinderStampO !  The picture for today is a super cute one. 

I love vintage inspired pictures.  Unfortunately, I am neither a baker, or a chef!  I was having such a hard time coming up with a project.  I kept going back to a recipe box.  It seemed vintage inspired, and way more my style than doing anything from scratch!  I decided to rummage through my flowers and charms from her store and it all came together. 

It seems like all of my recipes are just so handy on my phone, so I thought this would be a fun way to get back to handwriting, and have it look super cute, too! 

Thank you so much for visiting today!

Spring Flowers

Hi Friends!

Today I have a craft that I have finally finished.. from The Wood Connection that I purchased last year!  Better late than never.  I just used paper I had in my stash and went to town.  I love how they turned out and I think I could do more of these.

Thank you for visiting!!

Giant Birthday Card!

My daughter is in first grade and just loves her teacher.  I do too, truthfully.  She's a great one and takes such good card of the kids.  My daughter came home from school on Thursday, March 7th and said her teacher's birthday is on the 10th.  I was going to be at school on the 8th for the art program I get to teach and thought it would be fun to go in a gift with the other mom who was helping!  She picked up some balloons and some cupcakes and I made a card for the class to sign.  It was a huge hit!!  Birthdays are so fun, and Mrs. Summerhays really loved her gift.  We were super sneaky and passed the card around while she was finishing up a lesson and had the kids write their names.  I have to admit, that was my favorite part.  All of those cute signatures.  It certainly was a treasure!  The card measures 6"x12" and was just perfect!

Cards, cards, cards!

Hi Friends!

I had my cute friend Kallie come over to try her hand at making cards.  I had kits all ready for us, so we just had to glue.  Super fun time, and I can't wait to card with her again!

We saw a wooden butterfly on one of our favorite Instagrammers Maggie Massey (Midwestern Girl) projects. She just blows me away with her amazing crafts!  I loved this layout, and couldn't wait to try my hand at using veneer in the Cricut!  It was so much fun.  Took a whole passel of multi-cuts, but it was worth it.  This card was my favorite of the night.  Hence the reason the other cards were only photographed in a group! 

The other cards were also fun.  They are designs I've done before, but new techniques.  I just love to wrinkle up paper and add distress ink to the wrinkles.  It adds a lot of detail and takes all but 2 seconds!

Thank you Kallie, for coming over and learning about cards.  You're a pro now!  And thank you all for visiting today!!

My First Vinyl Project!

Hey Friends!!

I wanted to show you the cutest vinyl project.  I saw this saying at an overpriced boutique and couldn't bring myself to buy it.  I was telling my cute husband about it and he suggested I cut it in vinyl and stick it on the wall!  Permission!?  I had to jump on that train! 

We have a miniature pinscher who loves the sound of her voice and barks at cars driving on the other side of the street.  This only seemed fitting... now only if she could read! 

I used the font "All Mixed Up" for my Cricut and a cute puppy from the cartridge "PaperPups".  I have to admit, I love it.  I think she does, too!

Thank you for stopping by!  Vinyl is SO fun!

Valentine Conversation Hearts

Hey friends!

I know Valentine's was so long ago, but I realized I never posted these super cute wood conversation hearts I got from The Wood Connection!  I had a cute friend over to do some crafting and this was our project.  I love The Wood Connection and all their super fun crafts.  You really can find anything you want there. Even down to the paint and glue for your decoupaging needs! 

I had these on my china cabinet and they just added that cute touch for the whole loving season! 

Thank you for visiting!

My new love: Notebooks!

Hi my faithful friends! 
I sincerely apologize for my complete lack of posting these last months.  I have been crafting, but have just neglected adding my pictures to my blog!  Instagram has taken over my life!

Anyway.  Apologies aside, I wanted to show you what is probably the quickest gift I have ever made.  My cutest BFF had a birthday in January and I needed just one more thing to put with her gift.

  I went to Target (my favorite!) to seek some inspiration.  I found this beautiful notebook and a pen that had some pinky/puple flourishes on it and knew what I wanted to do. 

Thanks to KinderStampO's beautiful shabby flowers, I was able to slap this together in no time!  I had paper in my DCWV stash that matched the pen perfectly and ta-da!

Cutest little notebook.  Ever. 

Thank you so much for visiting.  I am so sorry to be slackin' on my posts.  I appreciate all of my followers so much!
