Hello Foxy —June Stamp of the Month Gift Set


I am loving the adorable June stamp of the month called Hello Foxy! I used it to make this little gift set for my daughter’s principal who we just found out is moving to another school next year. I stamped flowers on the card and Necklace Card with Memento ink and then colored in the images with the Watercolor Pencils. I used the Blending Pen to soften and blend the color. I also stamped the separate flower image on a piece of scrap cardstock, trimmed it out with my micro-tip scissors, and the adhered it to the bottom of the wreath with some Thin 3-D Foam Tape. (FYI: The Blending Pen and the Necklace Cards will be retiring at the end of July.)



I used the same card design and swapped out the sentiment in the center to make the card below. It is hard to see in the photo, but I also used the Clear Shimmer Brush to add sparkle to the center of the flowers and the word “Hi!” Each one of my team members who met their quarterly minimum early received one of these cards from me this month.



Did you know that you can get the stamp of the month for just $5? With a qualifying order of $50, you can get it at the deeply discounted price! The June stamp of the month is only available through June 30th, so be sure to order yours before it’s gone.

Live Beautifully Birthday Card


One of my favorite types of cards to make (and receive) is birthday cards. There is something special about celebrating another year of blessings with a handmade card. Tomorrow is my birthday and I was thrilled to receive this beautiful card in the mail from my CTMH upline and friend Denise Anderson-Turley.


Denise used the Live Beautifully papers and stamp set to make this card. If you look closely, you can see the shine from the gold foil flowers in the background paper. (This collection is only available for one more day!)

Thank you Denise for thinking of me and sending me this beautiful, thoughtful card! xoxo

My day was brightened by some Happy Mail!


I received this adorable card from my dear friend Karen Pedersen a few weeks ago. I fell in love with the colors she used and sweet floral sentiment on the front from the May Stamp of the Month called Live, Love, Laugh. More importantly though, I fell in love with the sweet message of encouragement that she enclosed on the inside. Thank you Karen for your kind heart and friendship! You made my day!


When was the last time you sent a handmade card to someone who was on your mind? You never know just how much you might brighten their day when they open their mailbox.

Have a wonderful day everyone! xoxo

Live Beautifully Card


I am loving the CTMH May promotional paper and stamp set called Live Beautifully! I used them both to create this card. The bold black and white striped paper was used on the top of the card and I used the gold foil diagonal striped zip strip (found on the top of the patterned paper) to separate the white card base and the bold striped paper. The sentiment and flowers came from the Live Beautifully stamp.


I stamped the flowers on a piece of scrap cardstock in Pixie and Raspberry ink, then trimmed them out and adhered them to the card with Thin 3-D Foam Tape. I finished off the card with a few self-adhesive Gold Sequins.

Did you know that you can get the Live Beautifully Collection at a discount when you order one of the great bundles? The Live Beautifully Collection is only available during May while supplies last. Visit my website for details.
