Hey there! I am up on the Waffle Flower Crafts blog today with a brand new Watch It Wednesday video. It’s a 10 minute card for a brand new baby boy and family and used the darling Rain Check stamp set. If you are looking for a quick card, I’d love for you to stop over and check it out or the video is also embedded below.

Also, have you seen the new Petal Point chalk ink pads from Waffle Flower and Colorbox?! In love!

Hey there! Clearsnap, Spellbinders and several other companies are hosting a Spring Fever blog hop this week! I would love it if you dropped on by the Clearsnap blog to check out this tutorial for a shaped card. Pretty different than the cards I normally make, but love it nonetheless!

Enjoy the week!

Painting By the Numbers

Hey there! The teams from Waffle Flower Crafts and Paper Issues have teamed up today to bring you a new theme РPaint by the Numbers. I used the February Swag Bag, along with the Bowtiful Stamp Set, the Calendar Numbers Stamp Set and the Pots Die Set on this little mini album.

This little book is a self confidence mini for my step-daughter who turns 8 tomorrow. We can all use a little extra boost for our self esteem sometimes. This little gal is an extra delicate flower whose feelings are very easily crushed by friends/siblings who say unkind things, parents / teachers who scold and the stress of being transferred back and forth between houses, rules and expectations. It’s rough on her and she has a bit more trouble “shaking it off” than most of us. I’m hoping it would be empowering for her to have a little reminder of just how wonderful she is, even when things are tough.

Each page is pretty simple – a photo of little miss looking her best, a positive affirmation and a couple of papers & embellishments.

The base of each page is the same – watercolor, a layer of gesso and a few sprays of Smooch Spritz.

It’s all tied together with a length of yarn and a flower button.

Please visit Waffle Flower Crafts for more info on these products and for the Swag Bag subscription, check the Paper Issues store.

Wooden Bead Necklace

Wooden Bead NecklaceLooking for a simple spring wardrobe update? I am sharing this simple wooden bead necklace today on the Clearsnap blog. You literally need 3 supplies!

PS. We made these beads with a wooden spindle since I was not able to find wood beads at any nearby stores. Being rural = lots of innovation! If you know of a source to find a similar style of bead, please do share.
