Life is Good-Paper Nest Dolls

Hey there party people!! Happy to see you again here on my blog!
Today I have a super fun creation I made using the adorable 



I had so much fun coloring Ellie up, and pairing her with some bright, cheery papers from Gina K Designs. I was so ready for Spring, and less cold weather....mind you, I don't want it hot, but not so cold would be lovely!! I always love when the flowers start to bloom, and you see people out working in gardens, and planting beautiful flowers. It's the most beautiful time of the year!

Well, that is it for me for now! Be sure to check out Ellie in the Paper Nest Dolls shop, and have a great day!!

April Showers Bring Kraftin' Kimmie New Goodies!

Well, we've finally made it to the end of release week, and all the new stamps from Kraftin' Kimmie are now available to be purchased!! Thanks so much for taking the time to follow along and comment this week as we revealed all out wonderful new sets like: Snow White and Cinderella from Annie, Puddle Pals from Emilie, and the set I used today, Rainy Day Lulu from Cheryl Grant!!




As you can see I have used a much more muted color pallette for today's card. I am using this week's color challenge from the Can You Case It challenge to use Sky Blue, Grey, Brown and White. I thought it would make a great combo for a dreary, rainy day scene...and I was right(I think!!)!!




You can check out the CYCI Challenge at our Facebook page!


Well, that is it for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my work! Have fun on the hop, and be sure to tell my teammates how much you like their work....they do a great job and deserve all the praise!!

April Kraftin' Kimmie Peeks-Day Two!

Welcome to Day TWO of our April Krafty Peeks
at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

How about another fairytale princess???
We've got another stunning design by artist Annie Rodrigue!
It's CINDERELLA!


To say I had a ton of fun making this card would be an understatement....I mean, WOAH, I had so much fun!! I used Melanie's favorite color PURPLE(Melanie hates purple, but it's my favorite so I like to give her all the crap), and some blue that is so close to purple you could call it purple and I don't think anyone would argue with you! I also used a GORGEOUS paper I found while cutting all my SU DSP packs into 6x6 that's silver and white striped...I used it for all the stars....it's shiny and so yummy. On her dress, I imagined it was in the process of being made, so the color wasn't complete, and the stars and swirls have stickles on them, which I'm not sure are a think anymore, but I still have them, so I used them(hello, my name is Jessie, and I am a craft hoarder). Hanging from my silver seam binding, I hand thread crystal beads and sequins to make some pretty dangly thingies(that's a technical term right there).  There are other things going on on this card like May Arts ribbon, brads...stuff...but I have a migraine and I need sleep.


This is such a magical image featuring the sweet princess and her gorgeous ball gown!  Plus the set comes with three fabulous sentiments!




All the Krafty Team and Guests listed below have lots of beautiful creations to share with you today featuring the  CINDERELLA stamp set!  You'll see her in so many different colours and scenes!!  Be sure to hop around and leave lots of love at each and every stop because one lucky commenter will WIN a gift voucher to the krafty shop!  The winner will be announced at the LIVE Online Release Party on Saturday at 2pm EST, so be sure to join us for all the krafty fun!



Well that is it for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by my blog on your way through the hop(Kimmie put me first because, well, she was shocked I was ready on time), and I hope you are enjoying the peeks so far! Have a great day, and see you tomorrow for more fun!!

April Kraftin' Kimmie Peeks-Day One!

Welcome to the April Release of amazing new spring stamp sets at
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!

The first stamp set we are sharing with you might look a little familiar because you may have seen a little peek of this gorgeous new set by artist Annie Rodrigue!  It just happens to be the Secret Krafty Klub set that we sent out to the members in February!
It's SNO
W WHITE!


I decided when I started to color Snow, that, well, there is no way she only owns that one dress! I mean, wouldn't that be terrible to have to wear the same ol dress day in and day out....so needless to say, she is not in her traditional primary colored outfit. Instead I went with a Pink and White dress, and had a ton of fund making a card that I thought was worthy of her gorgeousness!!

Here is a look at the full set:


What a precious scene of this sweet princess with her woodland friends!  It's a beautiful big image to colour up along with three sweet new sentiments!  And think of the fabulous scenes you could make with clouds and grass and some background dies and stamps!!


All the Krafty Team and Guests listed below have lots of joyful designs to share with you today featuring the
 SNOW WHITE stamp set!  Be sure to hop around and leave lots of love at each and every stop because one lucky commenter will WIN a gift voucher to the krafty shop!  The winner will be announced at the LIVE Online Release Party on Saturday, so don't miss it!

TCP Tuesday 334-Spring and New Goodies!

Hey there party people! 
Have you seen the new TCP Goodies?
Have you played in the Spring challenge?
Well, you need to! You should, I want you to!
That should be enough motivation!


Isn't the new Happy Easter set just GORGEOUS!! I paired it with the Happy Spring paper pad from Echo Park, and cardstock from MFT in Berrylicious, Banana Split, and Bubble Gum. I double stamped the sentiment with Black and Berrylicious ink, and now it, to me, looks blurry, but I have had a headache/migraine for so many days in a row that I can't see straight. The new CutUps I used are the new: Easter Bunny and Spring Wreath!!

Story Time:

Well kids, I'm the worst. Not like a little bit the worst, like THE TOTAL WORST. I got these goodies from Alma at the Cat's Pajamas and I was super sick with a migraine, like, the FedEx guy handed them to me as I was walking out the door to go to the hospital for treatment sick. Then, I started to feel better, and I was all geared up to have a stamping day! I had my desk clean, I had the idea you see below you in my head, and I got a call from my sister that my Dad was sick, and not just a little sick, like, being flown by a helicopter sick, and well...I completely shut down. 
He's fine now, luckily it wasn't life threatening, and is on the mind with a reminder from life that unfortunately aging is a real thing.
Me, I went right back to square one with my migraine. So, now I am late, and you are just now seeing them from me, but THEY ARE SO CUTE!! Two new Cut Ups, and a GORGEOUS new set, and even better, they coordinate with with CutUps we already have like the Easter Basket, so this set is just FANTASTIC!!!

So here are the new goodies:





Here are the details to the challenge:

  1. Every other Tuesday a new challenge will be posted on The Cat’s Pajamas blog and our Facebook page.
  2. If you want to play along you just upload your design to The Cat’s Pajamas blog page using the InLinkz button by the Monday, 11:55 EDT before the next challenge.
  3. You are not required to use a Cat’s Pajamas stamp or die but if you have them we would love to see them.
  4. On the following TCP Tuesday, the winner will be chosen from the previous challenge and will receive a Cat Cash Voucher for $10 or $15 if a TCP product is used.


Well, that is all for me!! Thanks so much for stopping by and for hanging out on my blog!! Hope to see you around friends!!
