Sneak Peek Day 3

Today we’re celebrating M’s birthday. Her actual birthday is not until the 5th but since it’s a school and gym night, we’re going to do special things with her today. Can you believe she’ll be nine-years-old in two days?!?! I think only Amy Tsuruta may remember this, but look at her six years ago: She was already a little world traveler and super adorable! How time flies (and wow, my scrapbook style hasn’t changed much)!! Today I want to share a *NEW* card created using some *NEW* stamps and dies from WPlus9. LOVE the little banner!! M’s having a little

Sneak Peek Day 2

It’s day two and a bit sun shiny here in England. See, I am starting to be a bit more British by talking about the weather {::SMILE}. Before moving to England, I thought that maybe Agatha Christie was just trying to add more content by adding two pages of weather talk, but, people do mention the weather more often here than my friends in the US (although we did moan a lot about how cold/hot the temperature was when we were still in Missouri). SO, inspired by the weather, I thought I’d brighten up a kraft card stock just a

Sneak Peak Day 1

HELLO! Wow, can’t believe it’s February! Been such a busy, in mostly a productive way, January and I am looking forward to slowing it down a bit this month!! I’ll share more about my happenings later. Right now, I just want to highlight a couple of stamp sets and dies that WPlus9 is debuting this month: Chantilly Trim and Very Vintage Florals. Pretty, huh? Let me share you one little secret: The card above is for M! She’ll be 9 in a few days and she cannot wait (as for myself, I can wait a few more years until she’s

A 10 Minute Piece

This year will be another quick one. Without knowing it, it’s passed the middle of January! I was supposed to post this yesterday but a very special personal event came up and I simply forgot and so if you’re a WPlus9 AND the Craft Dash fan, so sorry! I did have a different card to share but earlier today I had a little woolly get together and I crocheted the flower. A bit of glue gun, ribbon and sentiment, voila, a less than 10 minutes piece! I’ll share my other card next time I post {::SMILE}. I hope you’re January’s

A Special Holiday Giveaway

Hi!! Hope you all had a great Christmas with your loved ones. We did and the girls can’t wait for Santa to come again — although I think in Jovie head Santa hasn’t arrived yet because he didn’t actually knock on her door and her greeting him in person. So as of this writing, Jovie was still asking when Santa’s coming. Aahhh… It’s always sad when your most favorite holiday goes by and so to keep the fun going, WPlus9 has a really fun giveaway for you! THE DETAILS Each of us has hand picked a stamp set and die

WPlus9 Day 3

We got our tree up!! We had a few snags, e.g. only half the twinkling lights were working, but we did it! It was really nice to sit in the living room, relaxing, while smelling the fresh scent of pine. LOVE!! Emma and her friends did have a lovely craft day today. They had a fantastic time and created a lot of goodness. I think though they’re favourite part was using the Sizzix + WPlus9’s die-cuts to cut felt and sewing/gluing them onto their projects. They (and also their mums) thought the Sizzix was the coolest thing {::SMILES}. Today I
