March Paper Pumpkin Kit

March's Paper Pumpkin kit has to be one of favorite's and it definitely is trendy right now!  Chevrons, sequins, wood cutouts, and watercolour style are all big trends in paper crafting, and these cards covered them all!  This set made 8 cards, 4 Congrats, and 4 Thank yous:

And as an added bonus, it came with gold envelope liners!
I highly recommend signing up for Paper Pumpkin, it truly is 30 minutes of easy creativity!  You can sign up using this link:

February Paper Pumpkin

I'm back with another Paper Pumpkin Kit.  I have to admit, this one I set aside for a month until I figured out what I was going to do with it.  But now that it's put together, I'm a happy camper!
I thought I might use these for my sisters wedding shower.  There were 5 gift bags in the kit, so I did 4 Thanks bags thinking that they'd make good prize bags, and one that says Bride that I thought we could use for gift cards or something similar.

You can subscribe to this little 30 minute gift of creativity at!  I love my subscription and I think you will too!

Hip Hip Hooray Card Kit

Something you may not know about me is that I am a lazy crafter.  Imperfections often get left the way they are, and I'm always trying to figure out the easy way of doing something.  And when I need a ton of cute cards for one occasion (or for a gift--my mom is a big fan of a box of cards as a gift to her), my go to is card kits.
And the Hip Hip Horray kit--suits my sisters wedding ideas/style (although not the exact right colours for the actual wedding), so I made these up while I was away on course for work in my hotel room for her wedding shower (and there are more stamps than Thanks in the kit, this just suited my needs best!):

I highly recommend this kit.  It's nice and easy to put together and looks cute too!  You can check it out at my online store at

Birthday Pinata

Here is a layout from January's scrapbooking class.  This one is from Miss H's birthday party!  A good way to add dimension (although hard to tell in the photo) is to crease the circles.  With the Coredinations cardstock it stands out and almost looks like stitching in real life!
