Exciting news!!


Good morning! I hope you are all having a wonderful week! I was sick over the weekend and as bad as I hate going to the doctor I was glad to see Monday roll around! I thought for sure it was the flu but nope it's pneumonia. I've just been taking it easy and LOTS of sleep!!

Anyhoo, I have some exciting news to share with you all! I was so honored and excited that Lisa Norris (owner of Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon) has asked me to join her design team! Today is my 1st official post!! I just love her svg files and had a hard time deciding which file I wanted to use first!! I decided to go with this super cute squirrel from the Nuts About You cutting files. My pattern paper is also from PPPR called Natural Love Plaid Grid. I used my new PK set, Sweet on You for his face. Even though I didn't use the face in the cutting files I did want to use the teeth! I added liquid glass to them and also to the eyes! The hearts are from MCT, Stitched Sweethearts & XOXO die set. The sentiment inside the heart is from PK's October Stamp Club Kit. The sentiment below is from MCT, Puffy Hearts Just For You.


I'm so excited to be part of this team! I look forward to getting to play with all the cute cutting files that Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon has and also getting to know Lisa and the other design team members! Thank you Lisa for this opportunity :)  Thanks so much for stopping by! Enjoy your day :) Hugs, Leanne

i love you Valentine's Day card


Hey everyone! I hope you are having a super duper great day :)  I have a quick and easy Valentine's Day card I would like to share with you today! 

The cute little couple kissing I found in the Silhouette store. I replaced the heart that came in the file with the small heart from Emma's new die set, "Stitched Sweethearts & XOXO".  I used some digital paper from Echo Park, Head Over Heels PP1. I used a sentiment from a older MCT set called, "You're My Best Buddy". I thought this sentiment went great with this paper! The two circles that are layered together is actually a button that was preloaded in my Silhouette software. I just deleted the button holes. The large heart is also from the "Stitched Sweethearts & XOXO" die set. I added pop dots to the small heart and the couple to add some dimension. You might be able to tell a little more in this picture from the side...


Thanks for stopping by today! Hugs, Leanne

MCT Whatever Wednesday!


Good morning! I hope you are all having a great week so far! We have a new feature starting today over at MCT called Whatever Wednesday! We will be switching this out every other week with Inspiration Wednesday! I wasn't on the schedule but wanted to play along :)

I found this little girl svg file in the Silhouette Store awhile back and have been saving her! I thought she would make a sweet Valentine's Day card! I also wanted to make a different shape card so I went with Lori Whitlock's Bracket Easel card. I haven't made one of those in a while and thought it would be fun! Anyhoo, the little hearts that are coming out of her pocket and down came with the file but I wanted to add some of Emma's hearts too! They are the largest hearts on the card but the smallest in the Stitched Sweethearts & XOXO die set. The sentiment "Smile" is from the Small Talk set. The sentiment at the bottom is from the Fun Pocket Stamp set. I forgot to mention also, I used PK-640 Princess face assortment for her face. Last, I added some little pink gems from my stash. 

Be sure to check out Emma's Blog!  I'm sure you will be blown away with all the great projects! Thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Leanne

MCT Tag It Tuesday




Good morning all you crafty peeps!! I hope you are having a great start to your day! I know I shouldn't complain because I'm sure some of you have it a lot colder than I do BUT......I can't help it!!! Brrrrr it's COLD!!! I'm SO ready for Summer :)

Today is Tag It Tuesday at MCT! Our challenge was to use any of Emma's products and of course to make it a tag hee hee. The little snail, tag shape, and the paper were all made using my Cameo. I finally got to use my new Peachy Keen, Sweet On You set. I'm in LOVE with those eyes!! I added some liquid glass to them too! You can barely see it, but I added some grass using a Fiskar's border punch. I used Emma's, Mini Stitched Envelope and sealed it with the smallest heart from the Stitched Sweethearts & XOXO die set. I also added liquid glass to the little heart. The sentiment is from the new set, Puffy Hearts Just For You. I used the little enforcer from this tag set on my tag. The ribbon and twine are both from my ribbon stash! I really wish I could have gotten a better picture :( I'm still struggling with my picture taking and just going to be honest I SURRENDER!! I applaud (actually bow down) to those of you that take excellent photos because this ole gal has just about tried everything to get my lighting right and it's just not happening! 

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a AWESOME day! Happy crafting! Hugs, Leanne

Today I will be showcasing the "Stitched Sweethearts & XOXO" set....


For my card, I found this cute little flower in the Silhouette store! I used the smallest heart from the new dies and added it to the center of the flower. I used the "Stitched Postage Frame die" for my frame. I cut it out several times to make it nice and thick like chipboard. The heart is from this new set of dies also, it's the middle sized one. I heat embossed a sentiment from the "Puffy Hearts Just For You" set in the center of the heart. I also love this XOXO die it's so cute and just had to add it too! The pattern paper is a freebie this week from Silhouette! 


I had SO much fun making my next project! I just love how this post card turned out! I used several of Emma's new and older sets to make this! Again, LOVE how well her stamps coordinate with each other! I used the "Stitched 4x6 Journal die" for my post card. The cute little bear is a print and cut I also found on the Silhouette store. The heart is from the "Stitched Sweethearts & XOXO" set. I stamped it with the coordinating polka dot heart stamp for the "Puffy Hearts Just For You" set. The two sentiments are also from that set. I used the "Happy Mail" stamp set for the little snail and used the new little stitching that's included in the free die set that you get free for ordering this weekend! Everything else that was used came from the "Build A Postcard" set and "Postcard Add-ons".

Howdy ya'll! Today is our last day of sneak peeks before they go live in the morning! This is been such a fun week! I know that Emma, the design team, and I have had a BLAST playing with all these awesome new goodies and just think it won't be long till you can get your hot little hands on them too! Today we will be showcasing two new dies "Stitch Surprise Pop Out card" & "Stitched Gift Card Pocket die".

For my card today, I had my hubby in mind (I know I'm sweet like that hee hee) I thought maybe the next time I'm out I can pick him up a StarBucks gift card just to let him know I wub him :) I've used several of Emma's sets for my card! That's just another reason why I LOVE her products you can mix and match till your little hearts content! Anyhoo, I started by using a background stamp from the "Coffee Background" set. (I also used it on my sleeve to my coffee cup) I then used the "Build A Chevy Background" set across the bottom (was going to do more but my hand wasn't steady enough so I'm good with one hee hee) The line up at the top was made using the "Build A Postcard" set. (Don't look to close I'm not convinced I got that straight either bahahaha) Next, I used the die from the "Coffee Break" set for my cute little coffee cup! I used pop dots to add some dimension. The sentiment in the center is from the set, "You Are Perk-fect". All three hearts used are from the new die set, "Stitch Sweethearts & XOXO". On the coffee cup, I stamped a little heart from the "Postcard Add-Ons" set. For the larger heart, I stamped a sentiment from the new set, "Puffy Hearts Just For You".  Here is another view showing the card more opened....


You can see in this photo the new "Stitched Gift Card Pocket die". Isn't it cute! When I can this will be where I'll add the StarBucks gift card! Well, that's my sneak for today! I'll be back tomorrow for the Hop! Have a AWESOME day my friends! Hugs, Leanne

Good morning! Welcome to day three of our sneaky peek week at MCT! Are you getting excited and have you started your wish list yet? Well hang on! We still have some more goodies to add to that list hee hee! Today we will be showcasing three more sets "Once Upon A Time", "Stitch Paper Plane Die", and "Plane and Simple". I have lots to share today so lets jump right on in!

For my first card, I've used a super cute file from SVG Cutting Files called Rocking Gramps. I cracked up as soon as I saw him! The balloons are from the die set, Stitched Party. I've used some twine from my stash. The sentiment is a sneak from the set "Once Upon A Time" I stamped it on a label die from the Chunky Jar Accessories set. I used the sentiment "Happy Birthday" for the inside of my card (it's also from this set "Once Upon A Time") Here is another look at it from the side...


For my next card, I've used the cute little paper airplane die that Emma will be giving out this coming up weekend! Isn't it adorable! The little boy is from the set "Fly Away With Me" stamp set. I've used my copic markers to color him. I've used a cloud die from the set, "Fly Away With Me" dies as a mask for my sky. The sentiment is from the set "Plane and Simple" and I stamped it on the Stitched Tab die. 


Here's a peek at it from the side...


For my last card, I've used the stamp set "Once Upon A Time" for the cool vintage typewriter! The sentiment is also from this set! I've used the "Circle Font" stamp set and randomly stamped each letter and number over the card front. In between the fonts and scattered around I've used the little heart that is included in the "You're So Cool set that we showcased on Monday.


Here's a picture of it from the side...


Well that's a wrap for me today hee hee! I hope you enjoyed looking at my projects as much as I had fun making them! Be sure to head over to Emma's and check out what she and the design team have cooked up! Have a wonderful afternoon and see you back here tomorrow with our last peek before the Hop! 
Big Crafty Hugs, Leanne

Good morning everyone! Welcome to day two of MCT's sneak peek week! Today we will be showcasing three new sets "Puffy Hearts Just For You", Stitch Sweethearts & XOXO", and "Mini Stitch Envie". These are going to be so fun for all your Valentine projects! 

For today's card, I actually fired up my cricut! Poor baby hasn't had any lovin in quite some time so I thought it was time to blow off the dust and put it to work hee hee! I used the Elmo's Party cartridge. Elmo is a favorite right now in our house! My grandbabies just love him (shhhhh I do too lol) I used the Stitched "Capture" Frame and embossed it with a Tim Holtz embossing folder. I like how Elmo is popping out of the frame! That awesome heart is one of the sneaks today, it's from the "Stitch Sweethearts & XOXO" die set! The sentiment inside the heart is from another new set called "Puffy Hearts Just For You". I used the banner from the "Vintage Stitched Label dies" and heat embossed another sentiment from this same set. I used a little heart (from the set we showcased yesterday "You're So Cool") and randomly stamped it. I stamped it using Versa Mark embossing ink thinking it would show up but it did just not as much as I wanted so I went back over the hearts using a StarDust Jelly Roll pen! I stamped Happy Valentine's Day on the inside (also from this new set "Puffy Hearts Just For You) I'm sorry I just never can get a good picture of the inside of my cards :(  Here's another view from the side...


That's my peek for today! I hope you like my Elmo card :) I'll be back tomorrow with some more peeks! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a AWESOME day my friends! Hugs, Leanne

For my card, I've used a svg file from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons called Fall Fun! I thought this would work not only for Fall but for Winter too! Instead of jumping out of leaves, this little fellow is having fun playing in the snow hee hee! For his face, I used PK-450 Wide Eyed Kids face assortment. I added some Liquid Glass to his eyes and some blush using chalk. I used the Build A Banner Kit to add some polka dots to his shirt and toboggan. Those GORGEOUS snowflakes are part of today's sneak! I absolutely LOVE these dies! They cut like butter and the design of them are soooo pretty! They are definitely a MUST HAVE!!! The sentiment is from the set "You're So Cool". I didn't take a picture of the inside of my card but it reads "just like you!" This set has some of the cutest sentiments in it! Here is another picture of my card from the side... 


Well, that's my peek for today I hope you enjoyed it! I hope you have a AWESOME day! Hugs, Leanne

Happy New Year and Exciting News!!!


Happy Happy New Year!!!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas too! I want to thank everyone so much for all the prayers that have been lifted up for me and my family with the loss of my dad. The comments that were left were so sweet and gave me lots of comfort so THANK YOU for taking the time to leave one!

On a much happier note....I have some EXCITING news to share with you all!!! I am so HONORED and THRILLED Emma has decided to keep me on the Design Team!! Wooooo Hooooo I can't tell you how happy I am! I absolutely LOVE her products and was just over the moon excited when I got her email wanting me to stay on!! I'm so excited to get to work with her, the new members, and the ones that are returning! THANK YOU Emma for keeping me and I can't wait to see all the new goodies that will be released in 2014!

Above is a layout that I submitted for the design team call. It's been a while since I've done a layout and I'm rusty but with Emma's products how can you go wrong! My husband bought a 69 Chevy back in September (I'm no longer his baby sniff, sniff) It still needs work to be "show" ready but he's entered it in a few car & truck shows just for the fun of it! We have even won some door prizes too hee hee! He's so proud of it and hopefully one day he will have it exactly like he wants! I've used several of Emma's products: What A View Stitched die, the #69 is from the Stitched 4x6 Journal die set, Lowercase Fun Dies, the two banners are from the Vintage Stitched Label die set, My Journaling Stamp set, and the little hearts are stamped using the Lots of Love Stamp set and last but not lease I used the Stitched 4x6 Journal die to mat my photo.


Here is my card I also sent in for the design team call! I used some svg files from the Silhouette store and the stamp set From Our Family to Yours for the sentiment.


Last, here is my 3D project! I also got this file from the Silhouette Store. The sentiment is from the set, All Around Christmas.

I plan on getting back in my craft room soon so hopefully it won't be much longer and I can have something new to share with you! Be sure to eat your black eye peas (YUCK), hog jaw (double YUCK), and turnip greens (beyond YUCK) today! Peas for luck and turnip greens (green for money) not sure about the hog jaw just eat it bahahahaha!!! As you can see I'm in trouble I don't like any of it hee hee HELP!!! Hugs, Leanne
