So excited...I got a big ol' box of box of goodies on my doorstep on Thursday. This evening I played around some with my new Big Shot dies & embossing folders. I plan to do some creating this weekend. I'll be sharing soon!



  1. It's fun to start playing with new goodies - I love hearing that doorbell ring! Always is one of my favorite stamp sets, and I'm really digging the 'i love u' card that you made. I'll be back soon to check up on you!

  2. Both cards are so cute. I love adding dazzling diamonds to a card just to get it sparkle. Of course I always ended with a dazzling desk.

  3. That set is so pretty. I love the I "heart" you card. What a great way to use that heart.

  4. Very cute cards! I like the row of glitter on the sticky strip. I never thought to do that! I'll have to try it.

  5. Beautiful cards, love all the "white" space. TFS.

  6. Both cards are beautiful! Always is one of my favorites as well!


  7. Very fun cards. Always is a set I have resisted, but my defenses are getting weaker :)

  8. Such pretty cards! Its a set I don't have yet and its getting hard to resist :)

  9. These are wonderful! I love Always, but I have not used the bird yet. The little xoxoxo in the bottom corner is the perfect accent!
