Getting my life together


      I haven't been working on creating any card projects lately because I have been busy trying to get my life organized! I decided this year that I would invest in a life planner in order to keep my different worlds a little more in sync with each other. So I got an Erin Condren Life Planner, but wanted to personalize it even more than the way it came. I got the MFT Planner Basics stamps and dies to help, but I quickly realized that the Silhouette was the better way to accomplish it. I am in the process of creating stickers for my planner and it is going much better. I know that in the long run I will be glad both personally and professionally that I invested this time, but boy is it taking time!

       So maybe my Valentine card series will not be too extensive, but I will get around to posting some of the projects I have completed. They are waiting patiently on my desk! Just wanted to update what I have been doing. Hope you guys have a great week!

Keep Crafting!

Valentine Card #1

Happy New Year!! This is my first post for 2015. I took a couple of weeks off to enjoy the holidays with my family and to get some much needed rest. I needed to reboot, but I am ready to get creative and get this crafty year started!

I decided to go ahead and get started on some Valentine cards. I have several dies that I bought last year and never got around to using, so I am diving in before Valentine's Day gets away from me.

I got this die from My Favorite Things and used it on some patterned paper left over from my Shakers + Sprinkles kit from Paper Trey Ink. The sequins are from the same kit, but the solid card stock and twine are from my The Stamps of Life card kit. I am really liking The Stamps of Life card stock and will probably be using it more often, at least for card bases. 

This was a pretty easy card, but a good one to help me get back in the swing of things. Let me know what you think.

Keep Crafting!
