Home for the Holidays...Part 2 :)

Ok I know I have been saying this for weeks, months maybe...but last week/weekend was busy, amazing, and absolutely exhausting!! I worked extra hours during the week and then Saturday we went to the CKC convention in San Marcos!! We had SO much fun!! Shopping all day, spending crafty money & doing make-n-takes! Then on Sunday I had Stamp Club (Pics coming hopefully tomorrow!) SO today I enjoyed my day off...cleaning, running errands and even did a little crafting too!

This week over at Joy's Life, the DT is making projects using Orange, Green & Brown....so I am using stamps from Joy's new set It's All Fall Puns!

I learned this "new-to-me" techniques last week at work...Stamp your image using Versa-Mark and use heat gun to dry...then rub ink over the dried VersaMark and the images will POP out! Usually you use embossing powders  but this is just VersaMark! I really like this technique!!


Also, I got on my blog the other day and realized (this tells you how much I actually LOOK at my blog=/) that I still have I Love Spring on my background....Oops!! So, I guess a blog make-over is my future!


Until next time... ♥ Laura ♥

Home for the Holidays

Good morning! Well it is mid-September & we have been having the most amazing weather the last week! Rain & cool temps, which is so un-like Texas!! I actually already have my sweats on...although that doesn't say much, If I could I would wear my sweats year-round!! :)

Anyway, with Fall approaching, the DT over at Joy's Life are making some Fall projects this month and this week we are using leaves in our project!

The leaf is a "Peel off sticker" from Elizabeth's Crafts (These are amazing! Search YouTube and you will find some awesome videos about them!) and I again used some Bo Bunny paper (Can you tell I love this paper??LOL!!) And I used "Home for the Holidays' from Joy's new set It's All Fall Puns!


I embossed the sentiment with some Black Dazzle embossing powder! Sparkly & black! Great combo! ;)

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great week! :)
Until next time... ♥ Laura ♥

Hello! Welcome to Joy's Life It's All Fall Bog Hop! If you came from Amy's blog then you are in the right place! If you just stumbled in here :) please go back to Joy's blog to start at the beginning! You don't want to miss ANY of this hop! There are some gorgeous projects and alot of inspiration! :)

I decided to make a quick & simple card for today's hop! I love quick & simple! Sometimes, as they say, less is more! :)


I used some new Bo Bunny paper with leaves & acorns (totally fall!!) and added some blingy leaves to the card & my bow! And Joy's new fall stamp set is the perfect finishing touch! I just love this saying..."Happy Fall Y'all"! Of course, being from Texas, "y'all" is my everyday conversation! 

Here is a close-up of the fabulous stamp...

Sweet Little Pumpkin

Hello! Long time no see!! Last week the DT had a "vacation" so I thought I would take some time off too! I did do some crafting, mostly samples for work, but I will be sharing some of those with you this week! Today it is all about Joy's Life DT and we are making Fall Decor Projects! And some of us are using Joy's new set It's All Fall Puns! LOVE this set!! I think I will definitely use every single stamp in this set!

So here is my Fall Decor Project...I made some cute little pumpkins for your mantel. table or anywhere in your house!

I used the new Bo Bunny "Apple Cider" paper for each one and of course Joy's new set! Aren't those the cutest sayings?? And the quality of her stamps...AMAZING!! I cut strips of green cardstock & spritzed them with Perfect Pearls & Shimmer Mist and used some buttons for the "stem" of the pumpkin! Here is a close up of the stamps I used...



Be sure to stop on over at Joy's Life DT Blog to see some of the other great projects! :)

Have a great day!

Until next time... ♥ Laura ♥
