Hi Everyone!

There's a new Challenge over on the 3 Girl JAM blog!
One of my favorite things in the world.....

This month is all about the food or food related things that we love.

 Isn't this the cutest!?!

I used my Silhouette Cameo's print and cut feature to make everything on this card (except the 3 Girl JAM Ribbon).
The background paper, sentiment, butterfly, and the ant were all done with the Cameo.
I love to print and cut!

Make sure to link up your Food themed creations this month for your chance to win a $15.00 Gift Certificate to the 3 Girl JAM Store!

Summer Fun

Hi Everyone!
My goodness, it's been a long time since I've posted on my dusty little blog!

Things have been crazy busy for me.  My girls have entered into "the teenage years", work is hectic as ever, and now that school is officially out for the Summer- the real fun is about to begin!

We've already got the bikes ready for Summer riding, have camps lined up for a couple weeks, and my work schedule is quickly filling up with fairs and festivals to inspect (my day job is inspecting food and restaurants for the State of IA).
We're hoping to be able to take a few small weekend vacations this Summer- but we'll see where everything else takes us!

I did manage to get into my craft room for a little bit to help me get in the Summer mood!

I made this quick print and cut card with my Cameo for the latest
3 Girl JAM Challenge:  Summer Fun!

I've been a follower of Ashley's since she started blogging, but I didn't realize until recently that she was just turning 21.
Wa-Hoo!  Party time!!
I could offer plenty of advice and/or share lots of stories- but we'll save that for a one on one conversation ;)
(Beer before liquor- nothing makes you sicker!) 
I made a birthday card for the Birthday Girl!

I used a cute little beer file from the Silhouette store and did a print and cut banner.
I finished it off with a custom Flair Button and some 3 Girl JAM Ribbon from the new LG Bundle

Cherish Today

Hi Everyone!

Today is my last post as a designer for Linnie Blooms. (sad face)
I've had a great time on this team!  Linda- thank you so much for having me!!

Mixed media has always been something that I saw (and loved) but thought, "I'll never be able to do something like that".
Working with the Linnie Blooms shapes and canvas blanks definitely brought me out of my crafting comfort zone- and I am so thankful for it!
I have learned a ton of new techniques- and made some new friends while I was at it!


One of the new techniques I learned is working with alcohol inks.
I made the flower out of aluminum foil and colored it and the canvas blank and shapes with my new alcohol inks.
I finished my project off with some 3 Girl JAM ribbon.  (There may even be a little sneak peek of something new coming to 3GJ soon!)

Make sure to check out the Linnie Blooms blog and shop.  Linda has some exciting things happening on the horizon!

Thanks for stopping by!
