March Card Kit

Hello My Friends!
I wanted to share a few more ideas from our March Card Kit. First off, did you watch the UNBOXING VIDEO? It really is one of my favorite things to do, I LOVE sharing what's in our card kits each month. So much thought goes in to creating each of our EXCLUSIVE products!

If you didn't have a chance to watch the video here are a few of the cards our team made with the kit.

This Smile card was created with the kit and the Grid die

This card was created entirely from supplies from the Card Kit!

This Wishes Card was created with the Card kit plus the Lively Stand Up and the Whales2stamp set! See those tiny Whales? Those are an exclusive bonus die that is included in the March Card Kit!

Learn all about joining the Card Kit HERE. You'll love all the products we put together each and every month to make creating cards a snap!

Creative Idea

Hello My Friends!
Do you remember a couple months ago when we posted about labeling our ink pads? See the post HERE.

Well, we're at it again... This time we were looking for a solution for how to store our Blenders4ink and how to identify them!

Funny, the same solution worked perfectly. First we inked Avery labels with each color.

Then we added them to the top of the Blenders4ink.

Then we picked a plastic storage container and lined them up in the box. They stand up perfectly, they don't get contaminated with other colors and they are easy to move to your workspace or to put away.
If you really wanted to get fancy you could print or write the color name on the label too!
Happy Stamping!

My Perfect Day

Hello My Friends! The other night as I laid my head on my pillow before I went to sleep, I started to think about my day. I started to pray to God and give Him thanks for everything and everyone in my life.

As I was praying and going through the day in my mind, I realized I had just lived my perfect day.

Now, you might think the perfect day in my life would be stamping all day or designing stamps or scrapbooking memories of my family. But you couldn't be more wrong.....

The day started like any other day, I woke up had bacon and Diet Coke for breakfast (of course!)  As the day progressed, my brother and two nephews Ben & Carter came to visit. My parents arrived next, and we went to the beach. 

We sat in the sand and played in the ocean (even though it was freezing cold!) The boys loved the little waves and Ken and I had such fun giggling and laughing at their antics. 

Later in the day my daughter Kirstin and her boyfriend Collin brought us lunch. We sat on the sand drinking Diet Coke and eating great sandwiches. Ken then took Ben for a walk to the pier, and I took Carter to the house to find a bigger beach pail, (because his was not large enough.)
Later on, my brother took Carter to the house and they took a nap. My dad and I then decided we were going to start looking for treasures (shells!)

As my Mom sat in a chair (almost in the surf!) My Dad and I scoured the seashore looking for sand dollars and beautiful shells. When I found a sand dollar, I ran to show my Mom, and then exclaimed very loudly, "I have to go show Dad!"   (This part brings tears to my eyes, because my Mom said it was like I was a little girl again.)

That day looking for shells my dad was one day I will never ever forget.

As the day wore on, we got a little bit too much sun and a little bit too much sand, so we went back to the house and my sister-in-law Maricela came over and we played games and relaxed on the patio. When the boys and my brother and sister-in-law left, we headed over to dinner at Kirstin's favorite spaghetti place. 
Katie and her new boyfriend met us there and we all enjoyed a wonderful dinner together. Of course my Dad could not let the new boyfriend get away easy, so he told everyone it was his birthday and they came and sang happy birthday to him (to his embarrassment.)
After dinner the eight of us went back to the house and we sat and visited....three generations, laughing, teasing and talking. 

Now you can see, why the day was so perfect. 
I spent it with the people that mean the most to me. 

It was a reminder from the Lord, that nothing on earth is more important than our family. 
My goal this year, is to make sure I have more of these perfect days. Spending time with family, is the most precious gift of all.

Happy Stamping!
