Boys Will Be Boys...

Isn't it true?  Boys are a whole other species some days.  At least that's how I feel when dealing with my son.  

However, the one thing I have discovered is generation after generation, boys love the same things.  Our new stamp set Boys will be Boys encompasses just that.  Check out this cute card I came up with while crafting with my friend this week!


LEGO!  What kid doesn't like LEGO?  Growing up, my brother was a LEGO maniac and now my son is just as fanatic.  I love that I can create something so perfectly suited to him, or any boy at heart!
I coloured in the blocks using the new Blendabilities markers.  A trim of our new cotton ribbon completes the card.  

I can't wait to use this set in my scrapbooks.  I can totally envision LEGOS lining the bottom of a page focusing on B's creations!  

There are so many other great images to this set, stay tuned for some more ideas!

Too Much Cuteness

This past Thursday, I had a much needed crafty day with my friend Christine.  We used to get together regularly; but, life makes that difficult some days and it had been a while since we last got together.

I worked on completing some projects I had prepped but never actually completed.  Many were left over projects from card club.  I usually cut one or two extras, just in case a member brings a friend, with the intention of making them up to use myself later.  Of course, the pile grows and grows as I usually end up working on something else first.  I pulled out my stack of unfinished items and was slightly discouraged that I couldn't remember what they were all supposed to be.  I did what I could and then moved on to creating new and fun projects.

I FINALLY pulled out the new hamburger box die from the 2014 catalog.  It took a few minutes to get the hang of folding it; but, once I did I was off and running.  Check out this super cute crab I found online and CASE'd.

LOVE him :)


I absolutely adore it!  I can't wait to play with the hamburger box die some more to see what great ideas I can come up with!

What do you think?  Is it too much cuteness?

SPECIAL: Buy 3 Papers, get 1 FREE

 

During the entire month of July, when you purchase three Designer Series Paper packs, you’ll get one free. That’s like getting $13.50 off your purchase AND receiving an extra–did we mention FREE?– DSP!

Keep in mind:

  • There is no limit to the number of free Designer Series Paper packs you can receive. For each three purchased, you will receive one free.
  • To get your free DSP, enter it in your order separately from the three packs you’re paying for. For example, if you want four packs of the same type of paper, put in the three you’re paying for and enter the fourth as a separate item.
These items don’t qualify for the offer:
  • Designer Series Paper Stacks
  • Specialty Designer Series Paper
  • Designer Series Paper ordered through hostess benefits
