Christmas Cheer Chowder!

Christmas Cheer Chowder is the new Christmas line from Jillibean Soup and it's amazing as usual!  I love the bright colors especially that teal! 
I created these fun gift card holders by combining this great new line with the new Stampables Mini Bags.  You can see a step by step tutorial on the Jillibean Blog.


Love Seahawk Sundays...

....well, I love football Sundays.  My house is full ... kids, friends, and family ... lots of laughs and good times.  We have an open house on Sundays...the more the merrier.  Today we had a fire going, Swedish pancakes for lunch, and a winning team on the big screen.  The kids even stuck around and played some board games...I love the laid back atmosphere on Sundays...makes this momma happy.

After the game today, David & I hit the grocery stores for some deal shopping....today, we spent $36
 and saved over $160! Gotta love it....just takes about an hour to plan and gather my coupons....I think that's a pretty good hourly wage!

What else?  I tried out for the Bella Blvd design team....thought I'd share my designs with you!



Lots of Jillibean Soup!

Have I told you all how much I LOVE being on the Jillibean Soup Design Team?  I'm sure I have (probably a million and one times), but I'm going to tell you again!  I LOVE being on the Jillibean Soup Design Team!  It was Christmas last month when the new goodies arrived at my door and I couldn't wait to dive it.  This Kraft Placemat is my absolute favorite....can't you just see all the possibilities?  Yum!
Cold Avocado Soup? Yes, please! Just look at that color scheme? 

I love the way it looks on my kraft card & envelope:

Just look at that arrow....cut from the kraft chevron placemat.... so many possibilities!

Be sure to follow along on the Jillibean Soup blog to see a ton of fun designs from the team!


Rough & Tumble

At CHA Summer in Las Vegas, Carta Bella's Rough & Tumble Collection was one of my show favorites.  I fell in love with the real cardboard and of course the color scheme...one of my all time favorites to work with. 

Yesterday, I finally got a chance to break into my collection pack and it was simple amazing!  The quality and texture of their paper is over the top and I just love to create with it.

I have a couple more layouts in my head with this collection...LOVE it!
