Stay Positive with Therm O Web

Happy Monday, Sweet Friends!
And for those of you lucky enough to be in the pathway,
Happy Solar Eclipse day!


This past week I had the great fun of joining along with the My Creative Time August release, so I didn’t get the chance to mention what a big week it was for us here at my house, with school starting up again for both my kiddos. Pete is finishing up his last semester at university, but for my daughter, there are lots of changes and nerves underway as she starts her first year away at college.


I knew move-in day would be tough on the both of us, so I wanted to cheer her up with a little care package and surprise. Just a little something to let her know I was thinking of her, and wishing her well. Sneaky mom hid these cuties on her desk when she wasn’t looking, to find and open after we were gone.


Nik is majoring in life sciences, so I knew this adorable Real Genius collection by Photo Play Paper would be right up her alley. Perfect for a pun-loving girl, like her. And even though she’s all grown up, I knew she would enjoy a little encouragement from mom.


I’ve got the full details up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Wishing you all a wonderful day!

Welcome to the My Creative Time 70th Edition Release Blog Hop! Today is a happy day, because finally it’s release day for all of the wonderful products you’ve been seeing in the sneak peeks throughout this past week. I am so excited to be joining in on the fun with a special guest project. You should have arrived from Ruthie’s blog, but if you’ve gotten lost anywhere along the way, you can start back at the My Creative Time blog.


We are huge Halloween lovers here at my house, so for my project today, I couldn’t resist making a spooky sweet gift set for a surprise treat for my daughter who’s just recently headed off to college. Can’t wait to see her face when she gets a hold of these!


These cute treats were made with the new Stitched Bat Die and the matching Bat Sentiments stamp set, which is the freebie set for this month’s release. I absolutely love how versatile this bat is, and know it’s going to be a big hit this holiday season. Makes the most adorable candy holder, and works great on cards, layouts, and home decor projects, too.


I am the last stop along the hop, so thank you so much for joining us!

My Creative Time 70th Edition Release Week- Build a Fall Wreath

Image may contain: text

It’s sneak peek week over at My Creative Time for their 70th Edition Release, and I am so excited to be joining in on the fun with a special guest designer project. Today is day three of peeks, and Emma is showcasing a new fall stamp and die set called Build a Fall Wreath.


As the name of this new set implies, Build a Fall Wreath is filled with oodles of small greenery stamps and matching dies that are perfect for layering and “building” up images such as wreaths and swags. But today I’ve used a handful of the different images to build my own patterned paper on this set of fall-inspired tags.


I love how the smaller size of these images are the perfect scale for smaller projects, like these gift tags that I made with the previously released Holiday Tags set. And by placing all of the images together onto one acrylic block, all the stamping for even a big batch of tags is a super quick and easy process.


I used watercolor cardstock for my background and banners and added a loose watercolor wash to the images using a variety of fall colored Distress inks. The sentiments and banner also come with the set, and the matching banner die, as well. Patterned paper is from Photo Play Paper.

Hi everyone! It’s sneak peek week over at My Creative Time for their 70th edition release, and I am so excited to be joining in on the fun with a special guest designer project. Today is day two of peeks, and Emma is showcasing a new Halloween stamp and die set called Spooky & Creepy Night.


I am a huge fan of all things fall, and this sweet new set is at the top of my list of favorites for Halloween crafting this year! This adorable set includes the spiderweb, the pumpkin, and the ghost, and lots of silly faces that interchange between. And wait until you see all the great sentiments included, too.


I made a fun little scene for my card today, framed within Emma’s previously released Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More die set. And the patterned paper is from the Idea-ology Materialize paper stash.

My Creative Time 70th Edition Release Week- Scallop Stitched Rosette

Image may contain: text

Hi everyone! It’s sneak peek week over at My Creative Time for their 70th Edition Release, and I am so excited to be joining in on the fun with a special guest designer project. Today is the first day of peeks, and Emma is showcasing a new die called the Large Scallop Stitched Rosette.


This new die is a larger version of Emma’s previously released rosette dies, and if you have that earlier set, you can now create three different sizes of the most adorable rosettes. Now how fun is that?


Once assembled, these new rosettes measure about 3.25″ wide, and are perfect for adding to all sorts of paper crafting and home decor projects, and even gift packing, too.


I added my rosettes to some gift tags made from the Stitched Squares Inside & Out die set, and topped them with accents die cut from the Bunch of Fun Circles die set. Little banner strips were stamped with Halloween sentiments from both the Prehistoric Holidays and Too Cute to Spook sets from previous releases.

Bear & Bird with Therm O Web and Waffle Flower

waffle-flower-crafts-logo-header

Hi sweet friends! Happy Monday to you once again. I hope you all have had a wonderful week!


Today is the last day of July already, and I am sitting here marveling at how fast the time goes by. Summer is almost over, and with the start of school quickly approaching I am feeling a great sense of change coming over me. Both of my kiddos are heading off to college this year. Pete to finish one last semester to complete his BS in biochemistry. And my Missy Nik will be starting university after a two-year break, with a plan to study life sciences. And all this means big changes for this old mom.


I’ve got two weeks until move-in date, and yes, I am counting down the days already. Nik and I have been having fun picking out her dorm room get-up. Last week we spent four out of five weekdays on campus attending orientation and meetings. My head is swimming with information and data and facts and nerves. So much to process, and such little time left. I know it will go by in the blink of an eye.


Change is a bit scary, but I’m reminding myself that with new things comes new opportunities. I’m so excited to see where the kids go from here, and where I will go, too. As a matter of fact, I am starting out on a new venture right now myself, with a brand new job!
After all, if the kids can learn new things, then I can as well, right?


Sharing these sweet thank you cards that I made for the Therm O Web blog using the adorable  bear & bird stamp set from our friends at Waffle Flower Crafts.
I’ve got the full tutorial to share HERE on the TOW blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by! And have a fantastic week!
