September already!

I cannot believe that tomorrow will already be the first day of September. Isaac will start kindergarten one week from today which is extremely bittersweet as I see my baby start school. I can't believe he has grown so fast. It is also the beginning of my favorite time of year.....fall. I love the colors, holidays, and events that come along with this time of year. So.....to kick it off this month I will be featuring a set of Ippity stamps called "Fall for You". They are extremely cute and fallish. I have just placed an order for some of these stamps so let me know if you want a set. Here is a look at this set:

 I made a couple of cards using this set. Let me know what you think.


These cards were super easy and a lot of fun. I will be having a card class next weekend so if you are interested in taking it, just let me know. I will be offering a discount on this set the day of the class so get yours while I still have some left! I will be posting more goodies close to the end of the week. Thanks for joining me and Happy September!

They are finally here!

Hello! After much waiting and tracking my Unity stamps have finally arrived! I have impatiently been waiting for them and the UPS guy finally brought them yesterday. They are gorgeous stamps and I can't wait for you to see them in person. I have already used mine and here is what I came up with:



This is a birthday card for our friend's daughter and also for a challenge at the SplitCoastStampers-Unity Forum. The winner for this weeks Free Giveaway Drawing is........Kristen Wong. You can thank Isaac, he was the one that drew your name. I will be taking your prize to you on Monday. Hope everyone is having a great weekend and I will be back later today or tomorrow with another project.

I will be using this blog to share my projects and hopefully make a few new scrappy friends. Please feel free to share any ideas you have for what you will like to see on this blog. I will also be posting new projects from my new venture with Unity Stamps. I will be receiving catalogs to share with everyone and hope that you will join me in enjoying crafting with them. They are wonderful stamps and I can't wait to get my first shipment in. So, here is the first project I am sharing. This is a card I made for a friend for her birthday.
