At Fifteen......

Hello everyone...I'm here with my very first post for Your Memories Here! I am so excited to be part of Kristina's new DT and feel blessed that she chose me to share my creations using her fabulous products! All of the new YMH DT members, plus a few familiar faces, will be posting this week so I hope you hop on over there for some fabulous inspiration from those crafty gals!

Today I wanted to share a layout with you that features mostly Prima products, and my son's beautiful girlfriend. She is a truly lovely young girl & I was inspired by a Taylor Swift song, Fifteen, & even included a lyric on the journaling card. The patterned paper, flowers, rose leaves, pearls, and lace ribbon are all by Prima & you can purchase them in the YMH store! I used some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to distress some vintage sheet music, as well as spritzing some on the journaling spot to add some character.

The title was cut using the Jasmine Cricut cartridge, while the journaling spot was cut using the Home Accents cartridge. The flower centers are some Dew Drops that have been glittered. The pink patterned paper is actually some leftover gift wrap that I simply used a border punch on to jazz it up! Then, I just finished up the layout with a few rub-ons! The lyric for the journaling reads, "This is life before you know who you're gonna be...." I thought it was pretty fitting and, even though it has been awhile since I was 15, I can still remember what it was like and how everything seemed so simple. Those were the good ol' days!

I do hope you'll visit the YMH DT each and every day this week to see what the rest of the DT creates for you, as well as check out the YMH store! It is a fabulous place to shop for all your crafty goodies! Kristina's prices are truly awesome...definitely cheaper than those big box retailers! Plus, her shipping is fast & reasonably priced. And, you can check me out on the YMH DT site (& here on my blog) every Sunday as that is when I will be sharing my crafty YMH projects! Happy Scrappin'!

My new favorite toy!

Okay, my new favorite toy is not a crafty one, so please forgive me! But, I am so in love with it I just had to share with y'all! And no, I am not a spokesperson for the product or anything, I just really, really, really like it! I am in love with my....mop! Hubby better watch out I guess...hehehe!

I finally got a Shark Steam Mop & I am so very happy about it! I have wanted for awhile...I know I am a dork...but I love the idea that I don't have to buy anything for it like my Swiffer Wet Jet, that it is environmentally friendly, & gets rid of bacteria lurking on your floors. So, I rushed right home after purchasing it and went to town...& was very, very pleased with the results! So easy to do as well...very light weight and produces a bunch of steam - so be careful! Also got a heck of a deal too...only paid $30 for it brand new! Saved myself about $70 bucks - thanks Wal-Mart! Anyway, I just wanted to post my new fave addiction...mopping my floors! LOL!!! Hugs!

Happy 2 Cute Thursday!

Hey y'all! Happy Thursday! I hope you are all having a fabulous week! The weekend is almost here & I am super excited for that since the hubby has a 3 day weekend...yay! This week I decided to play with the Little Fire Fighter Girl digi stamp by 2 Cute Rubber Stamps. She is a cutie and definitely fun to play with...she could be used on so many types of little girl projects! You can get your very own Little Fire Fighter Girl right HERE! I also decided not to put a sentiment on the front of my card...which is a first for me! lol!

I started out by printing my digi on the Heavenly White Premium Ultra Smooth cardstock by The Paper Temptress. As you have heard me say before, this cardstock is fabulous for coloring! It takes my Prisma pencils amazingly well, better than any other paper I have ever tried. And, I also hear that it is simply fabulous for Copics too! Make sure to check it out! I also used a sharpie as well as my Prisma pencils to color the image. The yellow paper is Making Memories & the patterned paper is Creative Memories. The black cardstock is Neena Super Smooth black, also from The Paper Temptress. All of her cardstock is simply wonderful! The flowers are Prima, the ribbon is SU, and the buttons, glittered dew drops, & pop dots are from my stash. The black ink I used for distressing is by StampCraft & the white is Studio G.

Thanks so much for taking the time to look at my card! I would love it if you would hop on over to the 2 Cute Rubber Stamps DT site & check out all the awesome creations. There is some amazing inspiration over there! And, don't forget to check out the 2 Cute Rubber Stamps store! Heidi just released some new images & they are just adorable! Happy Craftin'!

Up, Up & Away with 2 Cute Thursday!

Hey y'all! I'm back with another 2 Cute Rubber Stamps card for you this week! With all the fireworks going off for 4th of July, it got me thinkin' about rocket ships, so I decided to use this awesome little digi stamp called Up, Up & Away rocket ship. You can find it right here in digi form or right here in cling cushion. I just love that the fabulous Heidi offers her stamps in several different ways, don't you?!

So, as usual, I used my Prisma pencils to color the image & then used Dimensional Magic by Mod Podge to simulate the glass window on the rocket. I love that you can see it in the closeup photo! I also used my new fave cardstock to color on, the Heavenly White Premium Ultra Smooth cardstock from The Paper Temptress....absolutely fab paper and superb for blending a variety of coloring techniques too! The patterned paper is Love, Elsie I believe and the other cardstock is Making Memories (blue) & DCWV (yellow). Thread is Bazzill, dimensional sticker is Miss Elizabeth, & the ink is Studio G. The buttons, punch, ribbon, & crepe paper are from my stash.

And speaking of the crepe paper, I loved using it to jazz up this embellishment to make it more of what I wanted! It was super easy. I just cut my crepe paper the right width & length, used some Aileens Fast Grab Tacky Glue (LOVE this stuff!) on the back, and adhered it - ruffling as I went. It really made it stand out and blend with my color scheme, it is a great way to make better use of your stash too! Totally loving the crepe paper ruffles right now! Now, if you have a moment, please hop on over to the 2 Cute Rubber Stamps DT site & check out all the amazing inspiration! The gals are super talented and we have some new ones for you to welcome on board too! Plus, stay tuned for some exciting news to come to the 2 Cute Rubber Stamps world! Happy Craftin'!
