Sunday morning projects...

I love Sunday mornings! This morning I have the windows open. The birds are singing. Seems like a good time to share some of my favorite projects from the last couple weeks. (Click on the images to learn more about these projects.)

This photo card is such a nice reminder to enjoy life right this moment with the people we love. Kelly Purkey made this card using the June Studio AE stamp set. Plus if you leave a comment over on Kelly's blog, the random number generator might pick you to win a set of stamps.


We've only had a couple sunny days so far this spring here in Oregon. I am soooo ready to celebrate summer! Laura O'Donnell's layout includes the colors and flowers that I am craving.


Yesterday my backyard was full of kids... nearly all of them girls. The one lone boy was seriously outnumbered but he managed to hold his own during the water fight. I'm going to use some of the elements from Daniela's layout to make a page about the epic water fight.


My daughter and many of her friends are graduating from 6th grade in a week and a half and then they will be headed to junior high next fall. It is going to be an adventure! Sharyn Tormanen's card reminded me that I need to make some graduation cards asap!


My family is awake and now they are foraging for food in the kitchen. That means my quiet time is over. Plus I need to go make some graduation cards. Hope you have a great Sunday!



It's not too late...

to say thank you to the brave men and women in our military! I also want to thank Lisa for using our "Missing You by Ali" stamps to make a beautiful card for the Operation Write Home blog hop last weekend. You can see Lisa's card and learn more about Operation Write Home on Lisa's blog. What a beautiful card for such as good cause!

New Project - Celebrating Dads!

Are you looking for a project to make for the Dads in your life? This photo cube is easy to make and honors those men who are great fathers.

The project kit and instructions are available on our website. You can use the pre-made accents that come in the project kit or create your own embellishments using the Dad Rocks stamp set that was designed by Ali Edwards. When you are finished making the cube, tuck a present inside to create a gift that truly delivers. Whether you make this project for your Dad, give it to the father of your children, or create one to sit on your own desk, this project will be appreciated all year long!
