Beach Hair with Therm O Web

Hi Sweet Friends! Happy Monday!


We have been having the most beautiful weather here. The storms have cleared, leaving nothing but blue skies and gentle breezes. Feels like summer has returned.


Even so, signs of fall are creeping in. The first hint of color is popping out in the trees, and there’s a squirrel burying acorns in my front lawn this morning.   And of course, I have completed switched over to fall inside. Fall crafts….. fall decorations…. I even bought my first pumpkin of the season yesterday. You know me and autumn…it just can’t come soon enough.


Weather like this, though, has me longing for the beach. So perfect time to share some seaside tags I made recently for the Therm O Web blog, featuring dies from the GinaK Designs collection and stamps from our friends at Waffle Flower Crafts.


This is the adorable Bear and Bird stamp set, with paper from Simple Stories’ Summer Days collection. I framed my beach scenes with square dies from GinaK Designs, and gave my bears some cool beach accessories from a super old Stampin’Up stamp set that I haven’t used for years. Bonus points for that! 🙂

I’ve got the complete tutorial up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a fabulous week ahead!

Bear & Bird with Therm O Web and Waffle Flower

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!

My Creative Time 67th Edition Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the My Creative Time 67th 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 Teri Beri’s blog, but if you’ve gotten lost anywhere along the way, you can start back at the My Creative Time blog.


My card for today features the adorable Sea You Soon stamp and die set, along with the fabulous new Scalloped Stitched Square Dies, in a sweet little nautical friendship design.


I am just smitten with the cute critters from Sea You Soon. These little guys were watercolored and die cut with the matching dies and added to an underwater scene that was pieced from the scalloped square dies. The sentiment from the set was stamped onto a circle die cut from the previously released Bunch of Fun Circle Dies. The paper is from the You & Me collection by Simple Stories.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Next stop along the hop is Erica .

I’ve been quietly working on my shop goodies for the past couple of months, so I’m pretty much ready to go. But of course there are always lots of last minute things to do. There’s photos to edit, and a shop page to update, and a few final tags to create, like these little foxy friends.

AudreyPettit MCT AutumnWishesTags2
I am a huge fan of Emma’s adorable fall stamps and dies over at My Creative Time, and pulled out one of my favorite older sets for these. This is the sweet Fall Friends set, paired with a woodsy plaid print and a touch of natural kraft, for a warm autumn look.

Happy Fall-o-Ween with My Creative Time

Hello Sweet Friends! Happy Friday!

School is back in session. Mr. Pete is finishing up his first week of his senior year in college today. I just don’t know how time manages to fly by so quickly. But I do know one thing…. even though it’s still a hundred degrees outside, back to school means fall is officially here. In my head, anyway. So today I have a fun fall card to share, made with My Creative Time’s adorable new Gobble Gobble stamp and die set.

AudreyPettit MCT HappyFalloween
I am crazy about the sweet owl in this set, and while I was working on my tags for the hop last week, I couldn’t resist making another card with the little guy. This time, I colored the owl in a natural woodsy yellow and brown color combo to go with my patterned papers, and added a few fall leaves to match.

AudreyPettit MCT HappyFalloween2
More loose Distress ink watercolor, and more paper scraps from my stash. And a petite 3.5×5 card base, for something a bit different from the norm.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all have an amazing weekend. And tell me, friends…..

Does it feel like fall in your neck of the woods yet?

Hello, Crafty Friends! Happy Wednesday!
Today I’m exploring my scrap pile again with some old favorite Simple Stories. This is the adorable Let’s Party collection.

AudreyPettit SS CelebrateCard
I made a vow to myself at the beginning of the year that I would try my hardest to actually use the cards that I make. And I’m happy to say that I’m sticking with that. But now, I can’t seem to keep up with the birthday cards! So whenever I have a moment to play, I’m trying to build up that birthday stash. Perfect excuse to break out this fun birthday themed collection.

AudreyPettit SS CelebrateCard2

I love all the bright colors in this line, and tried to pull out a happy rainbow of a color palette here. Fun stripey paper for the background, layered with a pair of journaling cards tied with twine. I added a simple die cut label and clear sticker for the sentiment, topped with that cute chipboard image. And then a few sequins to finish.

CHA 2016- Thinking of You with Simple Stories

Happy Wednesday, Friends! I’m still working through my CHA projects, and today I have one last official Simple Stories project to share, made with the adorable new Life in Color collection.

AudreyPettit LifeinColor ThinkingofYouCard
Celebrating the pretty florals in this line with this sweet thinking of you card. Just a simple pieced background with a scalloped border, and lots of my favorite stitching.

AudreyPettit LifeinColor ThinkingofYouCard2
A couple of SN@P journaling cards make an instant sentiment and focal point. Truly doesn’t get any easier than that.

AudreyPettit LifeinColor ThinkingofYouCard3
I added a few die cut ephemera bits and pieces and a chipboard flower. Then a simple ribbon tie finished my sweet and girly look.

It’s been a great year with Simple Stories! Thank you for all your sweet comments and support, and as always, thanks for stopping by!
