I Love you to the Moon Layout

This sweet boy and his cuddles.. Oh how I love him.  I'm not usually a fussy cutter. But after I found the Moon Struck by Pink Paislee stack in Hobby Lobby I had to cut all those big florals out. So pretty and girly. All of my paper embellishment came from the paper stack.

I may have to do more fussy cutting in the future.  I love how it turned out.
Thanks for stopping by.

Life is Sweet Layout

Time really does fly. Last week marked 10 years since my husband asked me to marry him. That seems so long ago. I feel like I went to sleep and woke up to ten years later. Good thing I have pictures to show for that 10 years together.

For my lay out I used the paper and embellishments from the Summer Dreams collection by Echo Park. I love how dreamy this collection is.

Thanks for stopping by!

Home Sweet Home Mason Jar Sign


I recently started following The House that Handmade Built on Instagram and quickly feel in love with her gallery walls.  I'm so inspired by her talent. Hopefully I can have a galley wall like hers in our future home. While I wait for that day to come I may as well get started on my signs for my own galley wall.

Chippy paint, sunflowers, and mason jars seemed like the best first step toward my collection of signs. 
I put my Cricut to work and cut a stencil out of vinyl for the mason jar and my sunflowers out of 80lb cardstock. You can find the SVG files in Lori Whitlock's shop here and here

Here is the order.

For this hop I rehashed Easter Carrot Box Card. You can find it here in Lori's shop and here in the Silhouette store.

I cut one extra row of carrots placing it where the flower tab should go. I glued the carrots a little lower on the tab to get the tiered look. For the flower tab I trimmed and glued it to the inside front of the box.  

Box cards always make such a wow factor. If you haven't tried one yet give it go, Lori  has a video tutorial on how to assemble one.  The patterned paper is from the Happiness is Homemade 6x6 paper pad by Echo Park.

Succulents Wreath

Hi there!

I'm probably jumping on the cacti/succulent bandwagon a little late but I have been thinking about this wreath project for awhile now. When the succulent thing first started popping up I remembered my mom had some in a flower bed called hen and chicks. I loved them then and love them now.

After perusing Pinterest for some color ideas I settled on a few shades of green and a dark purple. After I had everything cut out I inked the edges of the succulents heavily with shades of coral, green, dark purple. The cut files came from Lori Whitlock's shop. You can find it here. The wreath base I picked up from Hobby Lobby and the gold enamel dots came from my stash.

I went back and forth with adding a burlap box to the top but settled on leaving it as is. Maybe if I can find one I like I will add it. I like how it turned out and cant wait to hang it on my front door.

Thanks for stopping by to have a look.
