Fall LO

My mom, sister and I took the kids up to Door County for a weekend last fall and they had so much fun!

We took them to a corn maze, that they just loved!

And they especially love visiting the candy stores!! :)

I just love this time of year, when things start to cool off a little and I get a little rest from work!

Can't wait to have some time off with the kiddos!!

Have a wonderful day!

Princess Wishes with IBS

Can you believe it is the last Saturday of the month already?

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far!

Today I have a fun girly card to share with you!

My daughter recently had her first birthday party she was invited to!  A little girl from her dance class!

With this month's release of Chalkboard Birthday I have been wanting to use the sentiment "May All Your Dreams Come True"!  Along with the Princess set!!

Perfect for any little girl!!
I just LOVE how this card turned out!!

Close-up pictures:

The papers are from the Girl Birthday Bash Digital Paper set released this month as well! 
(Except for the large teal with white polka dot paper)

The inside:
The sentiment and crown are also from the Princess set!!

I could resist using the "Eye Love You" sentiment along with these yummy eyeball candies!  
Chocolate and peanut favorite!!

Halloween Tag

Happy Wednesday Crafty Friends!!

With Halloween around the corner I have a cute Halloween Tag I created for today's post using some of my favorite new products!
The paper I used is from the Authentique 6x6 Paper Pad Enchanted!

To get the tag, I used my new Tag Album Die from Top Dog Dies!!
Have you checked out all their new dies?

(I'm in LOVE!!)

I used the smaller of the two!

For my tag I wanted to add some lovely Crinkle Ribbon to the top, so I used the Tuxedo from the Celebrations Bundle and Harvest Orange from the Harvest Bundle, which I thought were a perfect addition to this tag!!

The adorable stamped images are from the new set Halloween Silhouettes!
I also used my new Wildflower Die and Vintage Alphabet Die from Top Dog Dies!

Hi there crafty friends and thank you for joining us in this Holiday Blog Hop

next Christmas themed project.

I have had such a lovely time working with WorldWin Papers!

I personally LOVE the Petallics!!

Ready for my inspiration?
I have 3 projects to share with you!

Firstly, I created this fun tea light card holder!
I just love this design!

For the main base I used WorldWin Cardstock in Kraft!

I used my favorite Petallics Cardstock in Snow Willow!
Just LOVE the smooth and sparkly paper!!

I also used a little some Original ColorMates Cardstock in Deep Belgium Blue!

I thought this was a perfect color pallet to use along with some of my favorite Inspired By Stamping sets!!
I LOVE snowflakes, so I used a combination of these lovely sets Winter Wonderland, December 25th Labels and Elegant Christmas Sentiments!

The "Warm Winter Wishes" sentiment is from the Winter Wonderland set!

For the tag, again I used my favorite snowflake from the Winter Wonderland set, as well as a sentiment from the Holiday Sentiments set!

Love the shimmer of the paper!!


Again for this card, I used the Winter Wonderland for the tiny snowflake!

The sentiment is from the Elegant Christmas Sentiments set, such a lovely set with such beautiful sentiments for the holidays!

For my card base I used some lovely White Cardstock and then used some Kraft for the main layer, with a hint of Deep Racy Raspberry behind the Kraft snowflake!



Lastly, I have another lovely holiday card!
I just love how this one turned out!
So elegant!!
For the main card base I used Medium Berry Red!

The I embossed a piece of White Cardstock and Medium Berry Red, along with adding a scallop piece of Dark Spring Green!

I embossed a Festive Frame in white and a Elegant Christmas Sentiment in sparkly red on Vellum! With Dark Spring Green underneath and a scallop circle in Deep Emerald Isle

I thought it would be fun to stamp a few envelopes as well!!
How fun!
