Easy Like Sunday Morning

My Todd, a loving fur friend, is getting older. It took me a while to see this. He still has the energy of a young pup, however does not show it as often.

I realized his aging when the brown spots on his face began to show streaks of white and he no longer made a mad dash for an adventure in the neighbor whenever the front door opened. 

It is not a bad thing, we seem to be at the same speed now, he and I. He enjoys more time snuggling close on the sofa when it is cold and more time just speeding quiet time lying in front of the craft room door while I work. 

He is a good companion and he listens well to the ramblings of an old woman.

And thank you for reading the reflections of an old woman.

Dreamin' Big Cards

Every paper collection has coordinating stamp sets. One of the Dreamin' Big coordinating stamp sets is the Dreamin' Big Cardmaking set (C1674). And this set is one of that has a coordinating Thin Cuts which means you can purchase BOTH as a BUNDLE (Z3303)!! And in March, the Dreamin' Big Cardmaking Thin Cuts bundle is 25% off -- WOWZERS!!

The card uses Goldrush and Slate cardstock, Dreamin' Big paper collection and the sentiments 'Just For' and 'You'. The stamping technique used is stamping a lighter color of ink, here I used Goldrush and overlaying a darker color, here I used Archival Black.

Add Slate ribbon and Dreamin' Big sequins and the card is easy peasy.

March is FULL of Flowers and Bugs

Dreamin' Big Paper Collection X7218B
March's featured paper collection, Dreamin' Big, has something for everyone! Beautiful flowers to greet Spring and AWESOME bugs!




This layout is the beginning of my Scrap It Southern Style March Recipe for More project.

The how-to book Magic Mesmerize is the Recipe used with a twist -- changing the photo sizes to 5" x 7" and 4" x 6" makes it easier to add Flip Flaps for the MORE of the class.

One of the techniques shared is cutting a photo mat from the hidden section of the layout's base page. Here is a video to help you save paper!!
