Kiss Me | Whimsy Stamps Card + Video

Happy 2018! I hope that this coming New Year brings you and your family much joy and happiness! I am just wishing for a little quiet soon! We are starting to repair and redo the parts of the basement that were damaged by the fire at the end of last year. So far….so good! Can’t wait to get our home back to normal! We are really enjoying our new kitchen. It is a dream to work and eat and socialize in!

Now onto my first card of the year……a sweet and slightly quirky Valentines Day card that features a very intense Cupid/frog! I used many of the new products from Whimsy and had a blast creating this card. I especially love the new Sun Rays stencil. I think I am going to be using it a lot! You will find the how-to video right after the photos and below that are all the product links so you can find the items I used! Enjoy!

Christmas Series 2017 | Day # 7 Peaceful Woodland

Happy Wednesday! The big day is almost here and I have been scrambling to get the house in order, food ready and presents wrapped. Throw in choir practices, helping with the Christmas Food drive and driving kids to and fro! I really wanted to get this video and December Daily page ready to share with you. It has been a little tough not having time in the craft room. I finally got this one ready to go. I have to say, if it wasn’t for Whimsy’s digital papers, images and sentiments…… I woudn’t have been able to get hand-crafted projects done for my loved ones.

I think this one speaks to where my mindset wants to be!

Christmas Series 2017 | Day#6 Stitched Gift Tag Decorations

Happy Wednesday! Slowly but surely we are getting back to normal after the fire. I am so grateful, thankful and overwhelmed with all that has gone on. Our belongings from the basement were all taken away, ozone treated and cleaned and returned. We barely lost anything. I feel so fortunate. 200+ boxes were brought back at the end of last week and we worked like machines to get everything unboxed and put back. We did cull out a lot of things to donate as well throw-out things that we of no use.  At the same time, we took the opportunity to put up the tree and all the holiday decor. There was no point in packing it all away….after all it isn’t too early to put it up!

With all this going on, this latest video took a while to get edited and a voice-over, but it is finally done! Last year, I made a bunch of gift tags that also were pretty enough to hang as tree decorations. They were a big hit, so I decided to make a new type for this year!

Christmas Series 2017 | Day #5 Penguin Dreaming

Happy Wednesday my dear friends. It has been a few weeks since I was last here.  I haven’t been posting these last few weeks because we had a fire in our home. Our sump-pump in the basement caught on fire. We are all fine and thanks to a water pipe that burst and put out the fire, our home is still here. The damage is only at the basement level and is mostly soot damage which is being taken care of by a company the insurance has brought in. Still, it has been a rough couple of weeks. The firemen told us that our battery smoke detector saved our lives. It was 2 am and were all fast asleep. The detector went off and woke us up. I don’t like thinking about what might have happened if we didn’t have it. So, I feel that I need to l spread the message. Make sure you have a working smoke detector on every level of your house, especially the level where you sleep.

Our kitchen reno is still on-going. The new kitchen was not affected by the fire but there have been many delays because of it. Everything is mostly done. Appliances are all hooked up and running and counters have been installed. We just have some finishing to be done and some modifications of cabinets. That is all supposed to move forward this coming Monday!  Everyone has been amazingly kind and helpful and it makes a situation like this so much easier. Kindness truly matters!

I filmed this video right before all the craziness began. This week is the first week I have had any time to get back to my craft room and I knew that I had to get this video editted and this post UP! I created a 6x8” December Daily album page using digital papers, image and sentiment from Whimsy stamps. The glitter snowflake was created using a metal snowflake die from Whimsy! I am loving this cute little penguin.
