The Best Day


The best days are the days we get to celebrate, don't you agree?!! Today I have a big yummy celebration going on, its the day I get to share that I will be designing for SRM for another term! I can't even contain myself when I think of all the new products I will be showcasing in the weeks to come! How many times can I say woooooo!? :)


For my oversize cupcake card I have a glittered cherry with a flag made with Birthday labels by the dozen  and Birthday borders , the cherry is topped with a twine bow and made with adorable polka dot paper!


Ribbons, and trims, and sticker stitches oh my! Glitters and papers and another year with SRM make my craftroom a happy happy place!  Congratulations to the entire new SRM Design team, I look forward to getting to know you and working with you all!



XOXO Shantaie

Farm Fresh

Hey there crafty ones! I have a super pink barn from Crafty secrets down on the farm set I kinda like the idea of a farm, but the reality of life on a farm would probably be far too little pink and far too much early mornings and tending to animals for a girl raised on the beach! :)


I cut a bendy card with my Silhouette and attached my colored bard scene to the fence {I colored the scene with spectrum noir markers} added clouds and a printed sentiment


I made a flower and a big loopy SRM twine bow plus a greeting by way of a clear SRM sticker, I may never live on a farm with a pink barn and sunshiny days but I can dream of such a beautiful place on rainy days and Mondays! :)




Happy creating!

100 Percent Sweet


Hi all! Just popping in with a sweet little card I stamped with an American Crafts stamp that I've had in my stash for a long time and still adore! I stamped the dress on 3 different patterned papers and cut them out. {such great therapy I tell ya'}


A sparkly little sequin on each dress and a big button above and they are all lined up in a row for a fashion show all their own!

I don't often create just for the love of stamping, it reminds me how much I love to "make" when I do! I know you do too, so I say to you keep on making pretty things! My love of crafting is 100 percent sweetness!

XOXO~ Shantaie

What beautiful sentiments, I cherish a stamp set full of sweet and clever sentiments, and hello...this one is taking the # 1 spot for stampy sayings! :) I employed the die to add a sideways banner tucked under a mini garden of paper flowers.


My Silhouette got a good workout on the lacy background and all those flower layers, and I simply swoon over open backgrounds and patterned paper together, its so much like lace over fabric!
