Blog Candy Winner & Cottage Wreaths Valentine for #TTTC194

Before I get to the blog candy winner I have another “book binding” fun fold card to share with you. I am hooked on this fun fold design and wanted to use it to make valentines for my book club members and friends.

I’m excited to be back with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge Design Team. You can look for a new challenge board every Thursday and I hope you’ll join the fun and create something using elements from the board.  I’m on Team O; however, I’m playing along with Team X’s challenge board this week.
Visit tictactoechallengk.com for inspiration and more. Enter the challenge and you could be a guest designer! Jeanie Stark- juststampin.com
Can you guess which way I made Tic Tac Toe?
I used ALL the elements from this board to create Tic Tac Toe 8 different ways! That’s what I love about this challenge…it is so easy to pick 3 (or more) and create something!

I used one of my favorite die sets that carried over from the Holiday Mini Catalog, Cottage Wreaths Dies. (This set isn’t featured in the new catalog; however, it is still available online. *You can click on the product link below to view in my online store.) I combined the dies with the perfect sentiments from a new favorite stamp set, Country Bouquet. It had what I “just wanted to say”…

The floral patterned paper is from the Regency Park 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper and can be found in the new Jan- April Mini Catalog. From florals and polka dots to stripes and everything in between, you’ll love the options!

My daughter is an avid reader and collects books. One of her goals is to have a large home library (She is well on her way!). Here is the card I made for her using a sentiment from Lovely You stamp set.

A Farewell to 2022!

New Year’s Eve is always a day of reflection for me. I also think about goals for the year ahead. I’m a firm believer in finding joy in every day! I admit some days are harder than others but I try to look for something good in each situation and it’s usually there if I look hard enough. This past year has certainly had it’s ups and downs…I lost my mom, adopted a nine year old rescue dog, remodeled and organized my craft room, and had many fun adventures with family and friends! One goal I definitely have for the new year is to blog more often. I have been creating a lot but unfortunately so many projects never make it on the blog. I miss interacting with you! As I look back at the past year I thought I’d share some of my favorite projects. *Click on the image to view the original post with all the details.
