Wanna see a sneak peek??


Hello ya'll! Today is cold and raining in my neck of the woods! I'm sooooo ready for Summer hee hee or at least some sunshine :) I know I shouldn't complain because our cold here in the South is nothing compared to other states in the North! God knew exactly what he was doing planting me here in Alabama because he knew I couldn't handle REALLY cold weather hee hee!

Anyhoo, how would you like a sneak peek?! I've got in some of the new stamp sets that will be in the new CTMH Spring/Summer 2013 catalog! I'm just now getting a chance to play with them so I'm hoping to have more peeks for you soon! I'm really excited about the new Idea Book and I hope I can get you excited too! This cute stamp set that you see in my card above is a A size called A Bowwow. I paper pieced the cute little doggie and used CTMH Saddle ink to shade him. I created a little sky background using CTMH Sky ink. I then stamped the word bubble (included) and using the CTMH sky ink again I stamped the sentiment "Wishing you a doggone good day!" (included also). I used a Martha Stewart punch for the white fence and a Fiskars punch for the grass. I then stamped a bone (included) on some white cardstock and hand cut out. I used the bone to create my background paper by randomly stamping it in different directions. I got to thinking it needed a little something else so I cut a dog collar from Paper Pups and added it to the card too!


This little set is so cute and AFFORDABLE too! It lists for $6.95! I'm a dog lover but don't worry cat lovers CTMH has you covered too but shhhhh don't tell! You didn't hear from me hahaha! Thanks for looking! Have a great weekend! Hugs, Leanne

My sweeties Valentine :)


Hey ya'll! I hope you had a great Thursday! I want to share a quick card I made using some of My Creative Time dies paired up with CTMH's January Stamp of the Month! I think this will be my Valentine card that I give to my hubby :) Don't worry he NEVER checks my blog so it will be a surprise!

I love how quick and easy this card came together! I used the Lowercase Fun dies for the "love u" and the hearts are from the Stitched Heart Layering dies. The sentiment in the center is from CTMH's January Stamp of the Month


Here is a picture of January's Stamp of the Month...

Peachy Keen Challenge!


Hello friends! I hope your week is going great this far! I've been in a crafting rut for several weeks but today FINALLY I got a little mojo back!! I'm hoping that tomorrow after I run some errands for my mom that I will have some more playing time. It felt good to finally make something!

I've got a few new things that I haven't got a chance to play with so for this card I combined three companies that I love My Creative Time, Peachy Keen Stamps, and Close To My Heart! I love that I can tie them all together :)

Peachy Keen is having a "Beary" sweet challenge and I just had to play along and use this adorable little bear  that my bud Shar sent me (thank you Shar!) It's by Buggy Designs and it's called Button Bear. Isn't it sweet! I used two different PK sets for her face. I used PK-114 Hot Diggity Dog for her eyes and PK-136 Large Bear Facial Features for the nose and mouth. I added some glossy accents to her eyes and nose. I used the chocolate candy die from My Creative Time's, Chocolate Greeting set. I just got in the Whooo's Your Valentine kit yesterday and knew that the silver glitter paper that is included would be perfect for this die! I also used it for her bow which is a Martha Stewart punch and I added a little pink gem from my stash to the center. The little heart border she is sitting on is also a Martha Stewart punch that I've had for AGES! The banner that I stamped my sentiment on is from My Creative Time's, Vintage Stitched Label die. The sentiment is from the Chocolate Greeting set. The paper is by Carta Bella called Devoted (my sweet boss lady sent it to me hee hee thanks Emma!)


Here is a side view. I popped the candy and banner up using pop dots. I didn't read the directions to well for the challenge till after I had this made but this is a 3D challenge :( I'm counting these two as my 3D items! Ok, I know it's a stretch but come on they are 3D!!! Anyhoo, whether I'm disqualified or not I had a blast making this and so glad to have some mojo back! Thanks for looking! Hugs, Leanne

MCT - 3D Wednesday!


Good morning! I want to start off by saying how sorry I am that it's been awhile since I posted anything :( It seems like I haven't been able to get back on track from the Holidays and on top of that I've been without internet, we've had septic tank problems, and busted water pipes!  You name it, it's probably happened around here!  But anyhoo, it's all worked out and for the moment things are fixed :) 

Today is 3D Wednesday at MCT and I'm super excited to share with you my banner I made! I also guess it's time to let the cat out of the bag so to speak.  One of the reasons I haven't shared this yet on my blog is not knowing how to word it or exactly what to say so just to make it easy on myself without a lot of details hee hee here it goes.....I'm going to be a Grandma! The baby is due February 24th! The baby shower is this coming up Sunday and I made this banner to decorate one of the bulletin boards! 

This was so much fun to make! I wished my pictures would have turned out a little better but hopefully you can click on them to make them bigger and can see the details a little more! I used the Artiste cartridge and Baby Steps along with several of Emma's dies to make my banner! I've ordered a cake and the colors are going to be blue and brown so I wanted to stick with these colors to tie it all together! 


I've used the Lowercase fun dies to spell out "it's a boy". The shape I used was found on page 77 of the Artiste handbook. I used my Gypsy so I would be able to make a layer. I embossed the blue layer using a bossabilities from Spellbinders. The circle is also from the Artiste cartridge, it's on page 48. I used my Gypsy again so I could make a layer for it also. I used my white jellyroll pen to add stitches to the edges.


I also used Emma's Stitched Curly Label die and her Curly Label die. I layered these together and folded in half and then used her Stitched Heart Layering dies to add the smallest heart to glue on top. The baby is from  the Baby Steps cartridge. I used PK-642 Boy Mates for his cute little eyes. The pacifier was a separate image from the baby. I used my Gypsy to size it down to fit his face. I then used my croc a dile to punch holes and ran twine thru each piece! Thanks for looking and I hope you have a AWESOME day! 
Hugs, Leanne

Welcome Baby


Hello everyone! I hope you all had a Happy New Year's! I have to admit I stayed up and welcomed the New Year in and it about KILLED me bahahaha! I slept in most of the day just to recover! Could you imagine if I would have drink something! Sheesh you wouldn't have heard a peep out of me for days hee hee!!

I did get a chance to play a little this afternoon yipee!! For my card, I used the cartridge Baby Steps for the little baby. I used PK-650 Just Baby Faces for the face. I've added some glossy accents to the babies eyes and also to the pacifier. I used one of Emma's newest dies, Stitched Postage Frame. I ran it thru my Grand Calibur twice (once in dark brown and then again in orange). I then used the banner from her Vintage Stitched Label die set (once in dark brown and once in orange) I stamped the sentiment "Welcome Baby" using CTMH Chocolate ink. The sentiment is from the newest release, Chocolate Greetings. The button is from my stash and the hemp is from Liz's Paper Loft!


Hope you all have a FANTASTIC day and thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Leanne
