My Valentine's Girl

Oh, I love this little Hero Arts stamp. I bought her back in November and I didn't even realize how perfect she would be for Valentine cards!

Stazon Tips

I really like Stazon Ink! Here are a few tips I thought I would share with you!

Stazon has this great little clear cover on the inside. Now, this help keep the pad from drying out but I find it is a pain to deal with! I usually end up getting some ink on me, somewhere when I work with these!

SO, I decided to use a glue dot and stick it to the outer cover, permanently. It works like a charm!
Place the glue dot on the " inside center dot" of the outer cover, this way you don't get any on you!

Place clear cover back on ink and then put the outer cover back in place. Give it a little squeeze on the center and you are done!

The next time you open the cover you won't have to worry about that silly clear cover inking YOU up!

Because I am (slightly) OCD (or CDO as my husband calls me) I like to label everything! My inks sit on thier sides in a drawer and the labels make is really easy for to me to find exactly what I am looking for.

Faith Hope Love

I made this floating frame for a client just before Christmas.

I think it turned out beautiful! She is going to put it above her fire place with two black sconces next to it.

Yummy New Goodies!

I always love getting packages in the mail but I especially love them when they contain scrappy stuff!
I splurged and ordered 6 Glimmer Mist! I LOVE this stuff and can't seem to get enough of it! But honestly, I use it ALL the time.

I REALLY love the Old Lace. It is so pretty! But my favorite changes weekly.

How about you? Do you have glimmer mist? Do you love it? What is your favorite color?

Scrappy Goals for the New Year

I have never made scrappy goals but this year I decided to give it a go!
I have been really convicted over the last few months that I scrap for others all the time but rarely scrap for our family. That makes me sad!
SO, this year I promising my family that I will make at least 52 Double layouts for our Family albums! That is one a week and that seems reasonable!
I still have four albums for others to finish up, but I will only do a LO for them when I have completed one for our family. So, let the scrapping begin!!

How about you? Do you have a scrappy goal this year?
