Hi Emma,

I'm spending my day at home with my family and hopefully spending some of my time making cards. I actually went to your blog to pick out my next set of stamps, they are part of my mothers day present. YIPPEE!

Winner of the "Birthday Bash" cricut cartridge!

90 Luv Scrapping Together said...
Happy Birthday, Emma! I hope you are enjoying your special day!! Love your card. It has many of my favorite things, too!
My favorite birthday memory would be the year my dad refurbished a 10 speed bike. I don't remember what age I was but I do remember that we did not have much money and I had wanted a ten speed bike badly. So my dad spent several Saturdays working on this used bike for me. In the end he told me that he probably spent mor money fixing that bike up than it would have cost to buy a new one. But, it didn't matter to me. I knew I had the best bike in the world!
Have a great birthday, Emma! Thanks for all the wonderful inspiration.

Winner of the Pink Prize of the "Race for a Cure Blog Hop" !

Sneaky Peek #4 - Simply Beautiful! & Design Team Thursday!

Good morning & welcome to my last sneak peek AND my FABULOUS Design Team Thursday! For today I had asking my sweet ladies to create a "Tag"! Can I just say that they ALL OUT DID themselves once again!

Here is the PERFECT Tag Miss Shar created using "Follow Your Dreams" stamp set! I think this is a VERY CLEVER & CLASSY looking tag! Thanks Miss Shar!;)

Here are 2 tags Miss Kate has created! Aren't they just "Priceless"??? She used "Wow So Many Candles" for her ADORABLE tags~! I just LOVE them!

This is the OH SO CUTE tag that Miss Jenn has created! Isn't this WAY TOO CUTE for words?? I sure think so!;) She used "You're My Best Buddy" stamp set!

Okay Miss Glora! You totally made me cry w/your tags:') You TOTALLY nailed this one! I was all wimpy when I saw this because these are "My Favorite Sayings" that I say to my boys EVERYDAY!;) THese tags are just AMAZING!!!;)

Okay, now Miss Leanne & I were both on the same page tonight aS far as our projects went! She "accidently" made a card instead of a tag! Poor thing, she felt bad & felt bad for her! I told her NOT to worry because I had "Originally" made an 8x8 layout, but then relized I needed to make a tag! lol... I think Leanne did an AWESOME Job w/her card like aLWAYS!! She used my stamp set "Pain Pain Go Away"!
Okay! Here is my very last Sneaky peek before the BIG REVEAL tomorrow morning HERE on my blog!
Are you "Camera Shy"? Well, that is the name of this set I designed! "Camera Shy" has a larger font w/fun sentiments w/scrapbooking in mind as well as anything else! I used this sentiment for my tag today along w/the "Sweethearts" cartridge! The tag shape is from "Lacy Labels" which I've been using ALOT lately! I promise you that it looks ALOT PRETTIER in person! I couldn't get a perfect picture of this:( I swear I tried SEVERAL times & still got the same result:(

Here is a close up of the sentiment!
I hope you enjoyed ALL the SWEET tags that were made by my BESTEST DT Ever!!!!!!;) Don't forget to click on each one of their names to leave them some "Love"!;) If you have seen my card over on Everyday Cricut, you can see it HERE!

This is it!!! I hope you are ready for some "EYE CANDY" tomorrow morning!! YEP, my stamps will be released @ 8am Pacific Time! Come hop along w/my Design Team & myself as we showcase my brand new "6th" edition stamp sets!!!;) I will ALSO be announcing the LUCKY WINNER in my video!

Sneaky Peek #3! ~ Take Care of Yourself

GOOD MORNING My Creative friends! Welcome to my 3rd Sneaky Peek! All I have to say is that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE this set! It is called "This & That" & that is exactly what it is! This set has 19 stamps & they are a variety of sentiments that I know "I" needed! I hope you love this set as much as I do! For my card I used one of the carts that are in the E2 called "Cricut American Alphabet"! The pattern paper came from "Glitz & Glitter" 12x12 stack called "Posh Petals" another stack my Mom made me get from Joann's!! Really, she did!!;) Let's just say that any CUTE stack my Mom comes across, these are her Famous Words: "If you don't get it now, it may not be here when you come back"!!! hahahaha!! I just LOVE her!;)
The ribbon, twine & button came from Papertrey Ink. I punched out my sentiment using the "Modern" punch from stampin up!

Well, I hope you enjoyed the 1st three sneaks so far! If you missed them, you can see one HERE & another HERE!

All the patterned paper is from a stack by K&Company called "Around the World"! I picked this stack up @ Joann's!
