I'm still alive....

but I am totally exhausted!!! Not sure if you have heard the news, but as of this past Monday I am the new owner of Paper Pretties. I am SOOOOO excited about this new adventure but completely overwhelmed at the same time. I have spent more than 20 hours in the past 2 days opening boxes of inventory...counting and organizing. My back hurts, my feet hurt, my head hurts...but I'm excited (and a little terrified) about the future! I have tons of big plans for Paper Pretties! I'm adding tons of fun new products to the store...a new illustrator or more fabulous Cooper and Sophia images from Paper Pretties illustrator Joni Stringfield. I hope you all join me on this crazy adventure! I will be having a huge grand "re-opening" event to celebrate sometime in July! You won't want to miss it! In the meantime you might not see or hear much from here for a week or so.

I hope you all have a terrific weekend!

50% off at Jacksonbelle!

As most of you know, the Jacksonbelle store is closing its virtual doors. As of today everything in the store is 50% off! Things are selling fast so shop early for the best selection!
Since it is Tuesday we continue with our June JB challenge of "use your favorite products from the JB store".

One of my favorite product categories in the JB store is Rub-ons! I absolutely love rub-ons and Lindsey has a big selection of them in the store!
I used the Daisy D rub-on tape roller for the stitching around the edges of this card.

Be sure to check out the blogs of all of the Jacksonbelle Rockstars for more inspiration!

Life is Busy!

Sorry I haven't been posting much lately. With the start of summer vacation for the kids, life got completely hectic overnight. We are a week into summer break and are finally starting to settle into a routine. Hopefully that means more stamping time for me in the near future.

I do have a card to share today though...This sentiment is one of my favorite from DRS Designs. I also love this simple layout (I've used it several times). The designer paper and brads are from Basic Grey.

Don't forget that the entire Jacksonbelle store is on sale 40% off! There are still some terrific products to choose from but they are selling fast so shop early for the best selection!
