Reink Your Pad

Good Morning Everyone ~ Want to know how to reink your pad?  Here is a video for you.

Well yesterday was a quiet day as we needed to rest up after our day at Disney.  It was also hot here which s unusual for this time of year.  Today we are planning on spending time on the beach as the next few days will be hectic with wedding prep and the actual wedding.  Here are a few pictures from our Disney trip!

I know we all have to reink our pads every once in a while when we have used up a lot of the ink.  I did this video to show you how easy it is. 

Thanks for visiting me today.  What will you be doing today?  Have a Great Day!

Coloring Down the Lines Witch

Hello ladies ~ today is our Coloring Down the Lines hop and I have a witch for you.

Well on Monday it was drizzly and to top things off they were digging up the beach to put a pipe in.

We did get out in the afternoon as it stopped raining but they had the beach torn up all day.  Zoie was not happy.  Remi is better with the sand now but only for short walks then she wants her feet out of it.

The Coloring Down the Lines blog hop is today.  We are still continuing with our Halloween theme.

I decided to use some of the September Paper Pumpkin again.  I combined it with the Spooky Fun bundle and the Halloween Nights dsp.  Here is my creation.

Thanks for visiting me today.  It will be a beach day and then we have a dinner at Josh's parents so that the kids can meet each other.  Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

A Christmas Greeting

Hello Everyone ~ I have A Christmas Greeting for you today.

Well we arrived in California on Saturday fairly early.  We picked up something to eat and went to Michaela's since we could not get in until after 2:30.  We finally were able to get our key and head to the beach house. Here is my view for the next 10 days.

We literally walk off the patio and onto the sand.  The water is cold but that did not stop
Zoie she was in and wet in no time.  Remi on the other hand had some issues with the sand and would not walk on it or touch it.  Jess said she did the same thing when she went to the Outer Banks.  She eventually got over it.

Today is the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge. 

This sketch had me stumped for a bit but then I took it apart an element at a time to get my final creation.  I began by adding some This Christmas Designer Series paper.  Then I ad to add the horizontal and vertical strips.  I chose to use some Whisper White card stock.  I then pulled out a silver metallic doily.  Then I needed to address the oval element.  I chose to use the snowflake from Tin of Tags and stamp it in Soft Sky.  To finish off the snowflake I stamped a partial sentiment from Candy Cane Christmas stamp set using Island Indigo.  I punched it out with a 2" circle punch.  I then used the 2 1/2" circle punch to punch a circle out of Island Indigo.  I added this to the card with dimensionals.  I stamped another of the snowflake onto a piece of Whisper White card stock with Soft Sky.  I used the  Snow Furry punch to punch out the snowflake.  I mounted this onto the card base using a dimensional.  Here is my completed card.

Make sure you head on over to the Hand Stamped Sentiments blog to see what the other ladies created using this sketch. I am sure they will be fabulous.

Thanks for visiting me today.  We are headed to Disney today so the girls can have a fun day.  Have a Terrific Tuesday!

White Colored Pencil

Hi Everyone!

When I was visiting Michaela last year I took some images to try some ideas from videos on You Tube.  My card today is one of those.

I stamped the image in Whisper White craft ink and heat set it.  I then took a white colored pencil and traced the lines I had stamped.  The result is below.  I hope you enjoy my card today.

Pink Christmas

Hello Stampers ~ I love using unusual colors for Christmas and today I have a Pink Christmas card for you.

Well our plans for today include spending time at the beach so the girls can play.  It is great as the house I rented is right on the beach.  We literally walk off the patio into the sand.  I am not sure if the girls will get in the water or not as sometimes the temperature here is cooler than on the east coast.  We will see.

Today I have a card that was created with some of the Specialty Designer Series paper from a few years ago.  I have a lot of it and I had played with it and set it aside and forgot it.  I ran across it the other day and decided to use it to make my card.  Here is what I did with the paper.

Scrapbook Page

Good Morning Everyone ~ Today I am sharing my scrapbook page I created for Zoie's Halloween this year.

As you read this I am in the air headed to California.  We are exhausted as we had to be at the airport at 5 to leave at 7.  But that is okay.  We can sleep on the plane if the girls do and if not we can relax on the beach at our rental house.  We are all very excited!

Today I am sharing a video of the scrapbook page I created for Zoie's Halloween costume for this year.    I used some of the Spooky Fun bundle as well as the Halloween Nights dsp.  I hope you enjoy my video.

Here is the video. 

Thanks for visiting me today.  I hope you enjoyed my video today.  I will be sharing the Project Life page I created for Remi later next week.  Have a Super Saturday
