_MG_8295

Good Morning & Happy Monday!

I hope everyone’s weekends were spectacular! I came down with some sort of sinus infection Saturday and started running a fever that night and continued throughout the entire weekend- BOO!

During that time, The Stamp of Life released another FUN club set, Lemonade2Drink!

I kept my stamping simple for this summer set 🙂

Here’s another:

Lawn Fawn Release Week: Blue Skies

tiffssunnyskiesHello Blogosphere!

It’s that time again, time for another Lawn Fawn Release! Today we’re showcasing Blue Skies Stamps and Lawn Cuts Dies!

For my layout, I doodled camo print using a Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Pitt Pen (S) onto some of the elements and then colored them in with Art Grip Colored Pencils. I used Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares Regular & Thin to vary the dimension and depth of the embellishments!

The title uses Quinn’s ABCs stamps and then an hombre coloring technique using Art Grip Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils! The banners and stars were also colored with the same medium.

This layout is EVER so meaningful to me! During this deployment, I was a Point-of-Contact for our Family Readiness Group and there was one mom in particular who was diligent in asking questions and finding out information. We kept in contact since day 1 and occasionally she would email me to say thank you for doing my duties. Unfortunately, she couldn’t be there upon her son’s return, so the kids and I made a welcome home sign for him and showered him with hugs! I’ll be sending this layout to his mom this week 🙂

Well, I hope you’ll check out the Lawn Fawn Blog post….the projects are ABOVE & BEYOND amazing! No joke! And, I hear there’s a giveaway a day 😉

bubblegum4metiff6Good Morning Blogosphere!

I’m up way too early for reasons unknown to me.

Maybe it’s all the excitement about my first time as a Mix-Ability Challenge hostess tomorrow or that Jen is teaching a super fun Ustream class tonight or because it’s parent-teacher conference day or because I’m taking my kids to the book fair or I’m just plain nuts.

All of the above.

Here’s a Gumball Machine tag I created using The Stamps of Life BubbleGum4Me and MoreGum4Me Stamp Sets! The tag was die-cut using the Sizzix Movers & Shapers Tag & Tie Die!

Oh and if you look at the tag, you’ll find a hint of what’s in store for tomorrow’s blog post!

Not only is there a NEW Splitcoaststampers.com Mix-Ability Challenge, but I’m hosting it AND giving away some awesome Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Goodies!

Bubblegum Machine Shaker Card

moregum4me3-tiffHappy Monday Blogosphere!

How were your weekends? I tried a 3-day juice fast and it was no picnic.

Here’s a fun card using my favorite sentiment from The Stamps of Life’s bubblegum4me March Club set! I turned the little gumball machine into a shaker card with some extra plastic packaging I had laying around, added some sequins, and viola!

I used The Stamps of Life inks by Colorbox to stamp (LOVE these inkpads)! You should definitely check out the gallery for more inspiration!
