You Make Nerdy Look Good....

Oh man... do you ever see something that someone created and you are simply crazy giddy over it?!?! Well, that something for me was created by Gigi-- oh my goodness!  I definitely had to recreate this! I did make a few adjustments but overall I kept to her same pattern-- a HUGE shout out to her for sharing!  Thanks! I kinda love that I picked out a couple other dies that fit perfectly for this too. Ahhh I love when a project comes together!  (haha I sound like my dad now-- he always says "Oh I love when a good meal comes together :)--I just applied it to crafting)

Look at this stinkin' adorable apple!  Love this cut file from Lisa at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and don't forget you still have a couple of days to enter the PPPR Challenge!  It's all about being a smarty pants this month!  So dig out those school files, nerd files and join us!

A little message on the back cover of this cute post-it note holder!  Hehe love this sentiment!  So I pulled out a bunch of my Jaded Blossom goodies and decided to link this up for their current challenge "Back To School."  

Supplies I used:
Jaded Blossom- Lollipop Die, Card Mat Dies, Mini Tag Dies 2, Kawaii Sentiments and Hello Hello

A Bear-y Happy Birthday!

Hello my crafty friends!  I hope this post finds you well as I thought I would share with you a card for a dear friends birthday on Friday!  I must say that this card was quite the challenge-- I am afraid my Silhouette Cameo and I am not on speaking terms right now and I finally had to break my Cricut Explore out of hiding (I picked it up on Black Friday... stood outside and almost froze my toes :)) But anyway... it's been quite the learning curve for me.  While I do adore how the Explore cuts like buttah--seriously the cutting is amazing the format vs the Cameo is quite different!  Let's just say I have a ways to go :)  I am also thinking this cutie up with my friends over at Pretty Cute Stamps--they are having a challenge this month and it's all about birthdays!

Sentiment is from Pretty Cute Stamps-Dino Mite!
The card base is from PPPR

Together like PB and J!

Happy Saturday my crafty friends!  Wanted to share a cute little card I created to send as an anniversary card-- I think it turned out super cute :)  Hope you enjoy it!  The sentiments are from Jaded Blossom... I did a little surgery on one of the stamps to make it say "You" instead of "We."  the fonts don't match but still turned out cute :)

Those little faces on the PB and J crack me up!!!
