AMEN!

I love this quote stamp set from Stampin' Up-and the font is absolutely beautiful too.  Isn't this SO true?!  I used the dress-up framelit and gave her an extra layer to her skirt with the sale-a-bration DSP ad a little jacket too.  The vine embossing folder was fun but what really made this card was the pre-cut, embossed kraft tag included in the kit in the spring catalog! Remind yourself everyday....

Yarntastic!

 
I dabble in crocheting-especially in the colder months.  My friend Fran wanted a scarf with pockets and I also happen to have just cut off the jean pockets from an old pair of Eli's jeans.....so-this is what it became! A double pocket, blue-jean scarf that can keep her hands warm and her phone safe!  Tied up pretty and ready to deliver!

Is This YOUR Design, Brynn?!

LOL.  This is not my typical style, given.  Here's the deal:  My sweet friend Shirley is in ministry.....specifically, prison ministry.  She volunteers at the women's correctional facility here and it was on her heart to encourage them by making cards for others-so she came to me.  Creating on no budget, with a limited amount of supplies was the most challenging.  They cannot have scissors, a paper trimmer, a piercer, etc. for safety reasons....so-this needed to be an easy card with supplies they can use-like ink, stamps and adhesive.  She had been given a SU set with a coordinating punch, as well as a roller stamp.  I donated the paper, brads and envelopes and made this design for her to do with the women for her ministry this month!  Here's to hoping that the blessing of a card can carry through in ways beyond what we can even comprehend!

Special Delivery

Although I'm not usually into traveling themed stuff....I fell hard for the 'Sent with Love' collection Stampin' Up just released!  The colors, along with the absolutely adorable stamps left me drooling!  This is a card we'll be making in my Stamp Club on the 21st.  I also created a co-ordinating envelope-because mail is always more fun that way! ;)

Love and Joy

I am loving that I am continuously inspired by my Stamp Club with my up-line.  It's because of her challenges and swaps that I even began USING the products I was collecting! LOL 

Scrapbooking is truly a passion so when our monthly challenge was to create a layout-I was in it to win it! (yes-I technically won, but considering that I ended up being the only participant-I don't feel like I really won. lol)  The Valentine collection seemed perfect since it had just arrived-and I couldn't wait to scrap these fun family photos!  SU released an embellishment collection worth swooning over that includes different trims and lace, paper flowers, resin pieces and more!  LOVE!  I thought it would be quirky to add the 'joy' stamp from one of my favorite Christmas stamp sets too.  I adore versatility!  The details stamp set is probably by go-to for a layout, with a lined journaling stamp, numbers, date, etc.....it really is the BEST for a page. 

I don't always fall in love with everything I create-but I love the way this page turned out!  What do you think?!

Sympathetic

The truth is-I've had to send way too many sympathy cards lately. Sigh.  Fortunately, my fabulous up-line and friend Sacha had made sympathy cards our  Stamp Club swap theme in January.....and I always make extras for sending! 

I used the music note stampin' wheel for the background with my favorite framelit , of course some dry embossing and linen thread as well.  I LOVE our seam binding and Designer Series Paper, so that made it to use too.  A few pearls and a bit of dimension and, here we go!
