Can you BELIEVE that christmas is less than a week away?! Where in the world did December go?! I still have shopping, wrapping and gift making to do! ACK!
AND>>>>>> it was announced today on the PMS blog and newsletter, that the PMS closeout sale has gone to 60% off all remaining inventory! SO maybe thats where my december has gone, packing stamp orders! :D But i'm happy to share these outstanding deals so close to the holidays!

It's also Monday which means time for another Digi Makeover Challenge!

This week our challenge is a color challenge!





festive right? Here's my card...


I used the season's greetings digi set for my sentiment and altered the colors using color overlay in photoshop. :D

PMS digi Makeover Challenge: Paper Piecing

>> Monday, December 12, 2011

Today's challenge from the PMS Digi Makeover challenge is to
PAPER PIECE!

Now I must admit... i didn't go as crazy on the paper piecing as I could have! This was my last big wedding weekend of the year! So yeah for that, but it just meant a quick card for today! :D

Jami has a wonderful tutorial on paper piercing with digi over on the PMS blog so be sure to check it out!

And now... here is my card using a new added digi to the PMS store, Caffiene Trip!

With the digi, i took the coffee beans and enlarged them by quite a bit and printed that out onto printed paper. I then cut out colored section of the beans and paper pieced them on top.
I also enlarged the sentiment for the card.

And thats it for me! Now off to play a bit of catch up around the house!!! Have a wonderful day!

PMS Winter Blog Hop

>> Wednesday, December 7, 2011


Since today is the 7th, Paper Makeup Stamps has another blog hop for you!!!
The blog hop today is just celebrating all of the winter-ie stamps PMS carries from the rubber (which we still have on our close out of rubber sale at 45% off) to the digis. More and more winter digis are being added to the site every day!

My card for you today uses one from our last rubber release, Hayden.

Hayden was colored in using copic markers (R29, R27, R24, R22, R20 for the clothing, E27, E25, E23, E21 for hair and boots, E00, E21, and E000 for her skin.


I used some liquid applique and a heat gun to puff up her ear muffs and trim on her jacket.
One last photo for you today...
The sentiment on my card is from a We R Memory Keepers rub on set. The rub ons are actually glue based and then you can lay other sheets on top for either a glitterie, foil or flock effect. I chose glitter for this one to match the glitter effect on the paper chosen.

Here are the links to all of our design team members in the hop today!


Have a wonderful day!

Pms Digi Challenge: Cut it Out!

>> Monday, December 5, 2011


Another Monday means it's time for another digi challenge from the PMS digi team!
For those who may have missed it... I've had to make a very hard decision to close out the rubber portion of the website. But get the rubber while you still can! Some stamps and sets have already sold out and I will not be ordering any more but there are still many left in stock!
These make great gifts for your crafty friends! Use the coupon code CLOSEOUT45 at check out!

And now onto this week's challenge!


Easy enough right?! Still print out your digi, color it if necessary, and then cut it out!
OR you could use an electronic cutter to cut out your digi. Not what i did here... but a fun thought! I thought of it just now as i was typing up this post! HAHAHAHAH!

Here's my card using the apples to apples set (which i have just 12 left in stock of rubber!)


For a little something extra, i decided to pop up my cut outs. :D


Thats all for today!! Have a wonderful week!!!!

My Time Made Easy: A year in Review

>> Friday, December 2, 2011

I have one more project to share using one of the new templates released yesterday from My Time Made Easy. :D

It's the A Box is a Box once again, only this time I'm using the other version of it (yes you get 2 for the price of 1!!) and have created the petal top version.

I don't know about you... but i think i may enjoy gifting coffee as much as I love drinking it!
It's just such a useful gift (if the recipient is a coffee drinker of course!). Coffee around my house is as much of a staple as bread and milk! So it's a very welcomed gift seeing as it won't appear on my grocery list the next time I'm out! I also like to gift fancier versions that you may go ahead and buy yourself. :D But fancy or not... wrap it up in a cute way, and it's sure to be treasured!

Here is my Box is a Box again...


And since this is our New with Old post... i've comboe'd this template with paper from the Coffee Beans digi paper pack and stamps from Fancy a Cuppa and Fancy a Cuppa Add On Images

Now be sure to check out the rest of the team to see how they have mixed the old with the new for their projects today!

My Time Made Easy: A Box isn't just a box!

>> Thursday, December 1, 2011

Oh what a night! Have you ever had one of those nights when nothing went your way? I had one of those tonight! My whole day really.... all the way down to my cricut needle giving out half way thru my project, my internet being intermittent and my children refusing to sleep!

SO we all have those days right? These are the days that i said thank GOODNESS for MTME!
Luckily, i don't have to give a gift tomorrow... but if i did, MTME would be coming to my rescue. because even with my cricut problems tonight, this template came together quick and cute and makes a great packing for any gift!

Here's my project using A Box is a Box...
This template comes ready with 4 different adorable cut files already perfectly places to create window in the front of the box AND with an alternative top. be sure to check out all the design team members today as we are all sharing this adorable box template to show the different ways to use it!

I used a strip of muslin fabric to tie around my box and to create the rose on top (SO easy!)
