Mr. and Mrs.

Weddings are often thought of in whites and pastels, but a bold sophisticated black is stunning paired with a doily and a few sequins!
This card was on the SRM blag a few days back and I just love seeing a card I enjoyed making on the blog and on Pinterest, it brings back the happiness of the making process for me...I know I'm so sentimental, but with life so out of control sometimes resparking a good feeling is just what the "Dr. ordered" :)

I Topped the doily  with a round take 2 stickers by the dozen wedding sticker in the center, and added a single row border from the same wedding sticker sheet. The simplest little twine bow is placed just above the border....because I love the softness of a little bit of twine!

To place the sequins I just dropped a small handful of metallic neutrals and glued them exactly where they fell, easy and random! 

I love that this wedding card could also double as an anniversary card, and is clean and simple enough to make in a hurry and still have time to wrap a gift before dashing out the door! :)

Those crabby days of summer

Hi again, Shantaie here with a crabby but cute summertime shaped card on the SRM blog today.
I cut this adorable crab with my Silhouette and added a bit of olive ink to his edges and used the bistro chalk marker to add a few crustacean-esque spots and highlights. He is way too adorable!!

Two hands in the air for lazy days of summer! This guy is pretty excited about his sign, made from a white banner and the August monthly memories sticker. How can you not smile when you see this crabby!!!
Have a fun and maybe even lazy summer day!

Peanuts on parade!

I'm featured on the SRM blog today with the following post:

Containers, are one of my favorite crafty products, clear containers that offer a colorful peek-a-boo inside are probably the most fun ever! Simple circus peanuts are elevated to gift worthy status all lined up in this clear box! 

A panel of patterned paper is embellished with a sweet baby elephant holding a balloon. The balloon is highlighted with a white bistro chalk marker  and a twisting twine bow in cantaloupe
I added a simple greeting of baby love from the we've got your border baby girl and a border from the baby sentiment sheet.

Making favors, gifts, or packages of any kind is just a little more fun and eye catching with a clear box!

 It's no secret that I have the reputation to be a silly, fun loving maybe even slightly twisted girl! I like to celebrate all holidays, but there are some that I like more than others!  Like shark week!!!
I made a batch of sugar cookies using these fred cookies cutters  they were super fun to decorate!!!

 I did say slightly twisted? this was the favorite cookie and nobody wanted to munch on her... but she did get eaten! :) The creator of Jaws would approve I'm certain of it!

Now all kidding aside sharks are beautiful creatures that need to be protected and understood, as a family we love and respect sharks. We love all the cheesy gory movies as much as the next guy, but we implore everyone to learn about the animal and how they help modern medicine, and the ecosystem as a whole.
