July 2014 Birchbox

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Subscription Box Sunday, where I share non-crafty fun. Today, is what I think is the box that started it all Birchbox. I had never heard of it until a few weeks ago and I went ahead and tried it out and couldn't have been happier with my first box.



Birchbox is a monthly subscription box that costs $10 shipped in the U.S. You will receive at least 5 beauty samples and sometimes receive deluxe samples, full size products and extras.

To find out more please use my referral link:

My first box was more than worth the price plus its fun!

Spider-man, Spider-man

Hi everyone,
I have an unusual project today an SVG using my Silhouette!
The SVG is from Pretty Paper and Pretty Ribbons. This particular SVG was very easy to put together and I used scraps from a My Mind's Eye paper pad that I have since "killed." This is a quick one today. My life has gotten so busy with work and the kids start school next week!

Thanks so much for visiting.

Paint Pink

Hi everyone,

I had originally intended for this card to be for an upcoming FCCB challenge but I ended up not liking it very much. I also have a video for you so be sure to watch to get the recipe.



The inspiration for the card was the flamingo paper and I had to use a tag but this is just blah. Oh well sometimes its good to share the missteps to let you all know that it's ok when you make something you don't love!

Erin Condren Planner

Hi everyone,

I am starting a new feature on my blog called "Subscription Box Sunday." Now I might fudge some of the posts here and they may not all be technically subscription boxes but lifestyle things that we might all be interested because woman cannot live on crafting alone!

The box I am opening today is not a subscription box but a planner. I have found that many crafters have the need to schedule, organize and make lists in their blood! I have always been a list maker and as my life became busy with kids and home and work, I have always had a planner. The Erin Condren planner is all over Youtube and I broke down and bought one. I have a video that gives my opinion so far on this planner. If you have one, I would love to hear what you think.





If you are interested you can use my referral link below and create an account. You will then get a $10.00 coupon good for your next order.

Adore

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing a project that I made for the Sa Crafters July challenge. Sa is not doing challenges any more this was the last one. The challenge was to use a certain bike from her store. If you haven't visited Sa's store you should (I am not affiliated in any way), she has tons of wood and chipboard embellishments and albums, frames, stencils and more. I have a ton of her products and just need more hours in the day to work on them!

The sentiments and the windows are also from Sa's store. I painted it yellow with Martha Stewart pain that I had in my stash and all of the flowers were from my stash as well. The picture is a favorite from the 4th of July. My Tyler with my sister and her sweet baby.

Thanks so much for looking today.

To Bee or not to Bee

HI everyone,

I have a cute little card for you all today. I had done a video on this but it didn't record. Boo! So anyway, here is my card using Paper Doll Dress Up and Elegant Edges. I guess these cartridges can be considered vintage but I still use them all the time!
I added a peachy keen face and a cute sentiment from Cardz TV stamps!

Keep Your Fin Up

Hi everyone,
I am back with another card share. Now, I had made a video for this and when I went to upload, I discovered that it hadn't taped properly. Oh well~ The card is a CASE of a card that I saw on the Scrappy Mom's blog.

The paper is from Echo Park and my cute fish is Create a Critter. The wave is a die from the Flip Flop dies from Stamps of Life and the sentiment is Scrappy Mom's. The paper really makes it in my opinion.

Botanical Tea Mini Album - Redo

Hi everyone,
So I am here today with a mini album video re-do. I had shared on Youtube a Botanical Tea Mini Album using the tutorial from My Sister's Scrapper. It was super jumpy and annoying. So I added some pictures and made it an Easter mini album and re-shot it. I am not saying that it's better just not jumping around anymore. There is also so chit chat.





Thanks for watching!

Feeling down

Hi everyone,

Today, I used the card feature on one of the CTMH cartridges, I think Artiste and I used the hot air balloon stamp set and dies from Stamps of Life.

 
I think the paper is from Echo Park. It was an easy card but I think that it turned out cute. Maybe I will get through all of my stamps before the end of the year...but maybe not I have got a lot of stamps!
