Mini Mojo Print

I got in contact with a gal here in town that is opening up a bakery.  YUM!  She was looking for someone who makes hand made cards to put in her bakery.  Uh, yes please.  Right up my alley.  So I have been working on some mini cards that will work great.  For my first one I combined with this weeks Mojo Monday sketch and used the Best of Birthday set.

 I also CASEd this little card out of the new catalog and just changed up things a little.  I wanted to use up some of the retired DSP.  Stamps set Chalk Talk with matching framelits.  Bundle it for a 15% discount.
 Petite Pairs stamp set is a great set with lots of options for sentiments.

My Paper Pumpkin

I did it!  I have been debating wether or not to order the My Paper Pumpkin.  I just decided to go for it. You can cancel at any time so why not try it out?  I am so glad I did.
Seriously who doesn't want craft supplies beckoning them to run away?

I didn't think to take a picture until I had already torn into it but here is the cute little sticker and welcome card.  

 Here is what came in the kit minus what we used up making the cards.  

Here are my cards.  I stuck with the one the instructions showed and a adorable one I found on Pinterest.

My 12 year old daughter, Kinsley put this kit together with me.  She is super creative.  I didn't even take a single picture of that night though.  I feel so bad.  And I would totally have snapped one this morning except my little girl is gone to her first year at girls camp.  She was so super excited and scared at the same time.  (I was feeling a bit of the same for her.)  I hope she is having fun.  Her daddy gets to join her tomorrow.  Lucky him.

Here are the cards Kinsley came up with and she didn't copy any.

She did such a cute job.

This is the starter kit so everyone receives this one first.  Check it out at and don't forget to choose me as your demonstrator or just click the link on the right.  Order your creative escape today!  You will be glad you did.

Happy stampin'!

Simply Stars Mojo

Here is this weeks sketch for mojo monday.  I have been in the mood to get some 4th of July decor out and have just not found the time as of yet.  In fact maybe that is what I will do as soon as I am done with this post.

Here is my take on the sketch...
Pretty patriotic if I do say so myself.  Thanks to all the brave men and women who have fought and who are fighting for our freedom I am able to "LIVE the life you've IMAGINED."  So love that quote.  
Here is what I used:

Chevron Embossing Folder 127749
Midnight Muse ink 126860
Raspberry Ripple Ink 126959
Midnight Muse Cardstock 126843
Crumb Cake Cardstock 120953
Very Vanilla Cardstock 101650
Raspberry Ripple 3/8" stitched Satan Ribbon 126845

Thanks for checking out my post today!  Don't forget my Open House on Tuesday June 25th  from 4-6pm.  More details on yesterday's post.

For You Crazy Talk

I think that the first week of summer is always the crazy one.  I always takes me a bit to adjust to having all 5 of my kids home all day and it takes them a bit to adjust to being home.  But we are trying to work out the kinks in hopes that our summer will be everything we all expect summer to be.  FUN!

I finally got a minute today to do a little stampin'.  YIPPY!  So I joined in on Mojo Monday and Hand Stamped Sentiments blog challenges for this week.
