Oh my, this is the first time in ages that I have been able to participate in one of PTI's blog hops. The challenge this month:
With the new year comes a clean slate along with many resolutions. This month's blog hop challenge involves you challenging yourself to use a Papertrey stamp set that has yet to see ink or even one that might be collecting a little dust! Go through your stash and see what little used treasure it might hold. 2011 is the year where what's old is new again! I have been working on these bookmarks for a bible study I am currently in (Love & Respect) and I realized that they qualified for the Blog Hop. While the stamp set and dies aren't exactly "OLD", I have had them for awhile and just now attempted to use them. Wow, do I love this set. Love Lives Here... what a wonderful set, love the images, the sentiments and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the dies that go with it. Those sweet little houses with their little heart centers. Oh my goodness. I am making these bookmarks for the other ladies in my bible class. I am praying over each one for each lady and her marriage that is participating in my class. Hope I can do them justice. I absolutely adored how this card turned out using my banner dies. I have had them for about 2 months now and this was my first attempt to break them out. And finally on these little treat boxes I used the Favor It #2 die for the first time as well as using my ric rac die for the 2nd time. Whew, guess I have a lot of PTI goodies that I haven't had a chance to play with. I am getting closer though to having at least used everything ONCE.
Enjoy and let me know which project you like best.
will try and post a supply list later. If you have a question just ask and I will do my best to get it answered quickly.
I have been married to my best friend, James for over 20 years. I feel so entirely blessed to be his wife and the mother of his children. We have two wonderfully sweet boys. They are growing so fast and keep us on our toes. I love to scrapbook, stamp cards and gifts, cook and bake. I really like to pamper my guys. And I would love to some day live a sustainable life style on our own homestead. Cows, chickens, goats, OH MY. A garden with tomatoes, potatoes, and peppers and more. Oh, the dreams I have...
For now, I enjoy crafting my "art" out and reading aloud to all three guys. I so enjoy spending time with my family.
