Mermaid and Home Decor'




Hello my crafty friends! I am here today to share with you a little bit of an obsession this summer! I am obsessed with mermaids! What a lovely and mythical thing to be obsessed with, right? Well I purchased this die set from Little B...(from Scrapping for Less of course) You can shop two places...the Facebook Group or the Website! If you would like to purchase this die just let me know and I can get it ordered for you!


So, I decided to decorate this little chalkboard that hangs in my scrapbook room with the dies I cut out from this die set.


Funny story about this chalkboard: In March my daughter who lives in Oregon was here for a visit...one day she graciously helped me do some reorganizing in my scrapbook room. I said "I need to put up a new quote." To which she replied let me...so of course I did...and she wrote and drew without letting me see it and then hung it back up! I squealed with delight at how fitting and adorable! 

This photo does not do it justice at all!

Photos of the Dies: The back of the die packages shows that you can paper piece and use different colors with the die however I found that pretty difficult to do so I just used some shimmer paper I had and cut them all out with a solid color.




 

Anyhow even though I couldn't figure out how to paper piece lots of nice dies to use on all those summer ocean and beach themed cards. 


Thanks for taking the time to visit.




A Sweet Thank You!




Has someone ever touched a loved one's life so profoundly you knew you had to thank them in some way?

My granddaughter was in a friend of mine's classroom this year in 5th grade. Mrs. Hindley forever laid an imprint on my granddaughter's heart and life. I watched Hannah grow from a bit insecure and not confident in her abilities little girl to blossom into a confident, outgoing, bubbly young lady!

So thankful for great teachers who pour their lives into students...Mrs. Hindley is moving to 6th grade next year and Hannah would be doubly blessed to have her again.

I created this card to send out to my friend as a thank you/congratulations card. Thanks for the great impact she made on Hannah's life this year and congrats on the brand new job!

Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog: Guest Designer



I am thrilled once again to be a guest designer at Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog. I  absolutely love sequins! In fact I love them so much they are a component in each and every collection in our Flavor of the Month card kit over at Scrapping for Less. I partnered with Michelle, from Kennedy Grace Creations to supply all the sequins for our card kits. So, this week I am giving away a package of sequins from KG. 



Today, I have created a cute card using a stamp from a beloved company!  I absolutely adore La La Land Stamps! I am obsessed right now with mermaids and sequins! Sparkly and shiny is all the rage right now! Shaker cards are a huge trend in card making. 


Supplies:

La La Land Mermaid Marci
Papers from my stash
Sentiment stamp: Paper Smooches
Sequins

Until Later,
Teresa
