Happy New Year's Eve Fellow Crafters and Scrappers,

I cannot believe it is time to wave good-bye to 2014. Twenty-fouteen was an amazing crafting year for me. Every month I worked alongside an amazing group of talented designers and have made wonderful friends within the crafting community. I am looking forward to growing as a crafter in 2015 and possibly attending my first craft show/expo. Wahoo!

Before 2014 departs, I wanted to share my last card for this year featuring Taylored Expressions' Pieces of My Heart with coordinating die.

Happy Birthday Little Monster!

Happy Tuesday Fellow Crafters and Scrappers,

The end of the year is quickly coming to a close, and I have a special card to share with you. I made this sweet card for our oldest who will soon be celebrating his 7th birthday. I cannot believe he will be seven. Time is passing too quickly!

Merry Christmas Eve Fellow Crafters and Scrappers,

Christmas is almost here! I cannot believe how quickly this year has passed by! I want to write a warm Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you and your families.

Today, I am sharing Taylored Expressions' sweet, little stamp You've Got Mail-Valentine. I created this card using Taylored Expressions', Diagonal Stripe Embossing Folder, Matched Collection-Formula for Love and Build A Tag (I).

Happy Monday Crafty Friends,

I love starting the beginning of the week with a little crafty inspiration, especially given the busy Christmas week ahead. This week, I am sharing with you a card featuring the Much Love stamp set from Taylored Expressions. The Much Love stamp set is a complement to the Sunshiny Day set released earlier this year.

Happy Saturday Fellow Crafters and Scrappers,

A dear friend celebrated her 60th birthday this week and in honor of that special day, I wanted to make a card for her. Thanks to Tenia from Jazzy Paper Designs, I came across another fabulous sketch challenge blog, ShowCASe Your Style. I used sketch No. 4 to design my card along with another fabulous Unity stamp.

Unity's Friends With Flair and Deconstructed Sketch No. 181

Happy Friday Fellow Unity Stamp Co. Friends,

Today, I am sharing a card I created using Unity's Naked Snow Peep, Mike stamp. I have had this cute, little stamp in my Unity stamp collection for awhile, so it was nice to pull it out of my stash to create a Christmas card for my parents. I used Deconstructed Sketch No. 181 for my card. I love a great sketch that incorporates multiple layers.

LAST JAS Challenge for 2014

Thursday, December 18, 2014

Happy Thursday fellow Crafters and Scrappers,

Welcome to the last Just A Scrappin' Challenge for 2014! I hope we have inspired you to create awesome cards, projects and layouts this year. We look forward to seeing you next year, so don't forget to stop by the beginning of January. This week's challenge is to create a card, layout or project using the colors black, silver and white.

I chose to keep my card very clean and simple. I know, a first for me. However, with the holidays quickly approaching, sometimes it is nice to keep it SIMPLE.

Taylored Expressions' December Release....

Thursday, December 11, 2014

Happy Thursday Taylored Expressions Fans,

Wahoo! Release Day is here! Bring out the hearts, chemistry sets, sassy critters, and more, because Valentine's Day is here! I know, you are probably thinking, "What? Valentine's Day, already?" The answer is YES! Once Christmas is over, Valentine's Day is just a hop, skip and two months away. The day celebrating love really does sneak up on a person. So to make sure you are not caught without a card for your special someone, come and share the love with the Taylored Expressions' Design Team and be inspired!

Today, I am serving up a loving (or maybe not) helping of Grumpling love. This might not be the first time you have seen these rascals. Earlier in the year, the Party Grumplings appeared. I don't know about you, but for me it was love at first sight. I loved the facial expressions and pithy sentiments of that stamp/die collection. So when the Valentine Grumplings debuted, well I was all in =)

JAS Challenge...Let Your HEART Be Light

Happy Thursday Fellow Crafters and Scrappers,

Welcome to another inspirational week at Just A Scrappin'. This week we continue our focus on Christmas with a color challenge. The challenge is to create a card, project or layout using the colors: green, red, blue, gold and/or silver.

JAS Challenge...Christmas Fun

Thursday, December 4, 2014

Happy Thursday Fellow Crafters Scrappers,

Can you believe it, we are in the month of December! Where did the year go? How can one year of my life have passed me by? Oh, I remember. I was in my craft room creating and playing with all my crafting toys. I will write, this has been an amazing crafting year. I have met and worked alongside so many talented crafters/artists. I have grown as a crafter because of those amazing individuals. I feel truly blessed. I cannot wait to see what 2015 brings!

To kick off the month of December and the glory that is Christmas, this week's challenge is to create a card, project or layout with a Christmas theme (using any color palette).
