It's A Boy!!

Good morning! I've got some fun news to share with you this morning.
Our 1st grandson James Anton (Jr) was born yesterday!
He is so super cute, and I am so proud of his mommy and daddy as first time parents. 
They will be great!
He was 6 days early, so I didn't even think to have this post done, but better late than never, right?

I used the Tiny Miracle SVG kit from SVG Cuts to create this super cute diaper castle for his big arrival!
I just LOVE how it turned out! I did modify the size a little bit because I used smaller diapers, but I still think it looks great!
 I used the Simple Stories Hello Baby Collection for all the paper and embellishments.
 Thanks so much for stopping by!

Your tent or mine?

Yay! It's July! Which, in my house, means it's camping time! 
We usually start camping in June, but the past month we've been having a detatched garage built behind our house, so we haven't been able to get out yet. 

Oh and just an FYI...I don't camp in a tent, but I still had to make this card! :)
Today's card is a scene card. I found all of the files on the Camping Fun cut file set. (Except for the moon, which was just a basic moon I had in my Silhouette Library.) The trees were cut from the title within the set. I actually found the sentiment first, and then based my scene around it. It's from the May Release over at Peachy Keen Stamps. You can find it here
I love, love, love this background paper from the Echo Park Happy Camper collection. Could it have been any more perfect for my project?!
Supplies:
PaperTrey Ink kraft cardstock
Echo Pack Happy Camper 6x6 paper stack
Core'dinations
Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Camping Fun cut files
Peachy Keen Stamps A Little Light Camping

I hope you all have a fabulous day!

I'll drink to that!

Good morning bloggers! I'm back with another design team project for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons!

For today's project I decided to make a circle card with the Scalloped Circle cut files. I LOVE using a circle shaped card, but I find that I don't make too many of them. :) I think this one turned out great!
These super cute drinks are from the Happy Hour cut files. 
For the glasses, I cut an extra base layer out of some PaperTrey Ink Clear cardstock, and then added the drinks on top of it.  I didn't like the way the adhesive was drying, so I figured this would work just fine.
I chose the "I'll drink to that," sentiment from the Jaded Blossom Let's Toast stamp set. It matches perfectly with my funny little drinks!
Supplies:
PaperTrey Ink Simply Chartreuse cardstock
PaperTrey Ink Clear cardstock
My Mind's Eye Collectable Notable 6x6 paper stack
Core'dinations
Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Scalloped Circles
Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Happy Hour cut files
Jaded Blossom Let's Toast
Neat & Tangled Sequins
Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen

Have a wonderful Sunday!
