grammy stops for rocks

I love these photos of my little boy with his Grammy. He has apparently spotted a very interesting rock and she doesn't mind letting him pick out his treasure.

 We've got a mix of American Crafts, Studio Calico, Teresa Collins, and Pebbles and more going here.

The journaling card is from Teresa Collins.

The hearts are from a punch by Martha Stewart. The title letters are from Webster's Pages, Basic Grey, and American Crafts.

The banner chipboard is Basic Grey. The circular stamp is... can't remember. Scrappy Cat? I topped the middle with a sweet little heart. I love hearts.

These fun clouds are from Pebbles. I rescued them from clearance at Michael's a couple of years ago.

Thanks for stopping by!

smile

I'll love this cheesy smile forever.
This layout has a wild blend of American Crafts, Studio Calico, and Crate Paper. And sprinkled with Sassafras, Echo Park, and Elle's Studio. 

"Awesome" is a sticker from Echo Park. "Smile" is a die cut from Cricut Expression/Cricut Craft Room. The teeny hearts are from a Martha Stewart punch.

The tag is Elle's Studio. The banners are from Teresa Collins and the dotted line is a rub on from DCWV.

The monster tag is an oldie from Sassafras.

This tag is Elle's Studio. I say "You are my favorite" all the time to my little guy. He's my only child so...

You Inspire Me *Heartfelt Creations*

Welcome to my post for the


Alumni Blog Hop!

I just love this Sunny Day Paper Collection by Heartfelt Creations. I used a simple layout and treated all the pieces with machine stitching and ink.

This sentiment is from Inspire Me Sentiments. I used Archival black ink on Kraft.

These two little brads are oldies from Kaisercraft.

Once I choose the stamp I want to work with, I immediately choose the paper collection I'm going to use to make the card. That way, I'm not wasting time looking for paper to match my colored piece. I always lay the stamped piece right on top of the patterned paper and color to match. These are the pencils I used on the watering can. The Light Umber is for the shading on the "floor."

One of my New Year's resolutions is to color and new stamp every month. I've never used this one before and it looked simple enough to color in the small amount of time I had to finish this card. Unfortunately, this beauty is retired. In fact, I purchased it as rubber only- no cling or wood block. I hope this stamp makes a comeback in a future collection! I used Wild Honey Distress Ink on the edges.
