Birthday card for Dad

This is a simple card that I made for my dad. He will be 71 this weekend. Didn't want to add any ribbon, too feminine for him. This image just reminded me of him because as long as I can remember my dad loved to have a bowl of ice cream at night as a snack. I love this house mouse stamped image that my friend Guylou sent to me. The pink in the cheeks looks much brighter on here than irl. I used my fiskars threading water punch along the edge, the background paper is from a DCWV pack and the other cardstock is CTMH. I hope he likes it. He will like what is inside it as it is some pics of my granddaughters, his great-granddaughters!!! Thanks for stopping by to look.

pumpkin patch

Dani and Jon took the 3 girls to the pumpkin patch last weekend. They had so much fun. They each picked out a pumpkin to carve. We have Danika's masterpeice out front on our porch!! They took a hayride to the field and went through a hay bail maze!!!

A simple birthday card for one of the Drs where I work.
I love bella images. The image is from stampingbella. I used tria and copic markers for coloring, an embossing folder with my cuttlebug, ribbons by american crafts and Martha stewart. The papers are all CTMH cardstock.

It is hygiene appreciation week, so i got to pull out my dentabella and make a simple card for our hygienist Kathy!
I got the Thanks sentiment in a image swap so am unsure who made it. All the papers are CTMH cardstock. American crafts ribbon, dentabella by stampingbella, cuttlebug embossing folder by cuttlebug, and colored with copic markers. Love these things!!

Carving Pumpkins

This last weekend my granddaughter Peighton and her 2nd cousins went to the pumpkin patch and then brought their pumpkins over to carve. The pumpkins probably weighed more than the little girls!!

Blue Eyed Beauty

My granddaughter Kiah has the most beautiful Blue eyes. They are a gorgeous color and they are so big!!! I had to showcase them in a layout. The papers are all from CTMH as well as the ink and the flourish background stamp. Also the white flours are CTMH big blossoms.


In June we took our whole family to the Oregon coast and rented a house. The weather was some of the most beautiful weather we have seen there. Usually there is so much wind on the beach that you can't stay for long. The Oregon Coastal water is so cold. I took so many pictures the week we were there. Our daughter Danelle, her husband Jon and their daughter Peighton, our son REO, his wife Charissa and their daughter Kiah, our daughter Katie and her boyfriend Adam had a wonderful time fishing, playing on the beach and in the water. This layout is one of my alltime favorite layouts. I have it framed and hanging on my scrapbook room wall. It is the only 8X10 I have scrapped. It is Peighton looking up at her Papa. Such a precious photo. Thanks for looking.

I used some paper from Fancy Pants. The swirl is cut with my cricut. The letters I received in a swap. I think they were cut with the sizzix. I got the quote from

Penny Black Christmas Fairy

Another great image from my friend Guylou. Funny thing is we were bidding against each other and didn't know it!! The papers are from the new Christmas line for CTMH and the sentiment is also CTMH. The inks and cardstock is Cranberry. The flourishes stamps are also CTMH. Thanks for looking.

House Mouse coffee card.

I got this awesome house mouse stamped image from a dear friend Guylou. Had to use my inkadinkadoo Coffee sentiment with it!!! I used my swiss dot embossing folder with the cuttlebug and cocoa paper by CTMH. It is much more brown irl. The other papers are CTMH twilight and grey. The ribbon is American Crafts. Will save this card for a friend and pop a coffee card in it. Thanks for looking.

Bella cards and box

This set of cards was created after reading one of my favorite bloggers sites. It is KiyomiKrafts. She is an amazing talented lady. These cards are made with different stampingbella stamps. They are colored with tria and copic markers. The box was made with CTMH cardstock and the gorgeous printed paper is some of my favorite from DCWV. I also made some little envelopes for each card. But so far have not given this gift set away!!!

Super Bella

So, I thought this would be a good card for my very first post. This is the super bella from stampingbella. I colored her in pinks using my tria markers and a pale pink copic that I use for flesh. The sentiment is actually one that I got in a swap with my group of friends at One of my best friends was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and I thought this was fitting for her. The pink cardstock is by DCWV and the ribbon is Martha Stewart. The card is 6X6 in size. Thanks for looking.

1st ever blog

So I thought I would join the ever growing list of crafting bloggers. You can find me browsing different bloggers daily. I have some faves that I check out regularly. I also thought this would be a good place to showcase my CTMH business. I use so many different supplies, but I love the products in this company. Thanks for looking.
