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!

Scrapbook & Cards Today- Take 2

Hi Friends! Happy Friday!

Last week I had the great pleasure of guesting over on the Scrapbook & Cards Today blog, sharing a pair of outdoorsy camp cards featuring Photo Play Paper’s new summer collections. I shared the first card in my last post, and today I am excited to share number two.

Once again, I combined papers from both the Campfire and the Lakeside collections for my background, and then made a fun paper-pieced scene for that adorable bear. Seriously cannot resist me a cute little critter.

I pulled in more of the stamp images this time to add a swag element to the top of the frame, and for the sentiment, too. Colored the images with Zig markers, and die cut them with the matching set of dies.

These fun Photo Play Paper lines are definitely making me ready for some summer adventures. We’re hoping to head north to the mountains this weekend, so perhaps a real bear, or two, will be on the agenda! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, too. And thanks so much for stopping by!

My Creative Time 67th Edition Release Week- The Adventure Begins

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! It’s sneak peek week over at My Creative Time for their 67th Edition Release, and I am excited to be joining in on the fun with a special guest designer project. Today is day one of peeks, and Emma is showcasing a new stamp and die set called The Adventure Begins.


This month is a very special release, for not only is June Emma’s birthday, this month also marks the 6th anniversary of My Creative Time. Today’s sneak peek set seems perfectly fitting for the occasion as it represents moving forward, taking a journey, and enjoying life’s precious moments….
Which I hope we all do for many years to come! Happy birthday Emma and My Creative Time!


For today’s card, I turned to a couple of my favorite previously released MCT die sets to create a little setting for this adorable scooter. Stitched Squares Inside & Out dies were used on both the frame and focal panel. Then I used Fun Stitched Clouds die cuts as masks for an ink blended cloudy sky background in soft green and blue. The present and scooter were stamped onto watercolor paper, colored with Zig Clean Color markers, and paper pieced with a bit of matching patterned paper.  I die cut the images with the coordinating dies, and popped them onto the frame using foam adhesive for a bit of dimension.


I stamped one of the set’s sentiments onto a banner strip for the front of the card, and added a second greeting to the inside along with another pair of sweet paper pieced packages. The patterned paper is from the adorable Fresh Picked collection by Photo Play Paper.

***Sneak Peek giveaway!***

Emma is giving away a free set of today’s new products to one lucky commenter, so don’t forget to leave a comment here, then pop over to the My Creative Time blog to see what the rest of the team has for you.

One Fabulous Chick with Therm O Web & Art Impressions

art-impressions-logo

Hello, Friends! Happy Monday!


Last week the Therm O Web team had the great pleasure of joining up with Art Impressions. I made two birthday cards with their adorable Spring Chicken stamp set and Photo Play Paper’s beautiful French Flea Market collection.  Today I’m here with the second of those silly cards.


I have to say, this stamp set really does make me smile. Who knew a bunch of chickens could be so darn cute? And love the pun sentiments that go along.


Hope your weeks are off to a great start!

Vintagy & Fabulous with Therm O Web and Art Impressions

art-impressions-logo

Hi sweet friends! Happy Friday!


This old spring chicken reminds me a bit of myself first thing in the morning. Definitely vintagy and fabulous…. but not too cheerful until I get some coffee down me! LOL. This adorable old gal is from Art Impressions’ new Spring Chicken stamp set, and we have the great pleasure of working with Art Impressions this week on the Therm O Web blog.


My friend, Paige, keeps chickens, so I must admit I had her in mind when I saw this set. Think this might be my birthday card for her this year. I think she’ll get a kick out of it.


Couldn’t resist that lovely cardstock sticker on the front mixed with the fun sentiments from the stamp set. It, and all the papers I used, are from Photo Play Paper’s new French Flea Market collection. They seem to go together hand in hand. I used some fun kraft photo corners from Therm O Web to dress up my card, and a bit of twine, too. And foam adhesive between layers for lots of depth and dimension. Image is colored with Zig Clean Color markers.


Art Impressions has released such a fun collections of stamps this spring, and we are really excited to share some of them to you! Therm O Web and AI have joined together to offer an amazing prize package, filled with stamps, adhesive, and some Deco Foil transfer sheets, too. Be sure to stop by the Therm O Web blog and enter our rafflecopter giveaway, open through the end of the day tomorrow.

Doggone Cute with Sizzix

Hello Crafty Friends!

I’m not always a huge fan of Mondays, but I’m super excited for this one. After weeks of preparation, CHA Creativation week is finally here, and that means I can start sharing with you some of the fun projects I’ve been working on behind the scenes. Soon, that is. For now, there is one last push to get through, and what I hope is one last crazy week here at my house. It has been such a whirlwind, prepping and creating for this upcoming show. Four companies, and 26 projects completed, with several yet to go. I am blessed, and honored, and so excited to share. But I’m looking forward to getting back to my quiet routine. And I’ve been missing visiting with you.

audreypettit-sizzix-doggonecutetags

CHA projects have left me little time for playing in my craft room, but today I’m reaching back into the archives a bit to share a set tags that I made for the Sizzix blog featuring some doggone cute new stamps and dies by Sizzix designer Stephanie Barnard.

audreypettit-sizzix-doggonecutetags2
Cute, right? I am just crazy about that sweet little dog from Stephanie’s new Doggone Cute Framelits with stamps set, being the dog lover that I am. I thought this little pooch would be just adorable paired with these fun new sentiment circle dies on a set of shaped gift tags.

audreypettit-sizzix-doggonecutetags3
I made these tags like mini cards, that open with room for handwritten messages on the inside.

So sweet and fun, and a perfect match for this adorable Cooper and Friends doggy collection from Photo Play Paper. I’ve got the full tutorial up on the Sizzix blog, if you’d like to learn more.

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

Visions of Sugarplums Holiday Hop- Day 1

visionsofsugarplums-announce-2016

Hi everyone, and welcome to day one of the 2016 Visions of Sugarplums Holiday Hop! I am so excited to be joining along with this year’s festivities! You should have arrived from Lisa Bzibziak‘s blog, but if you’ve just popped in, you can find the start of the hop here at Choux Choux Paper Art.

audreypettit-hellodeeriecard
For my project, I have made a card that mixes and matches lots of my holiday favorites. I am a sucker for all things kraft related… makes me think of those brown paper packages tied up with string that we all dream about at the holidays. So of course I had to add in a few rustic, natural touches with kraft papers. And then I mixed in an eclectic batch of elements to create a sweet winter scene.

audreypettit-hellodeeriecard2
That adorable reindeer and sentiment come from a new-to-me stamp company called Darcie’s Heart & Home.  I stamped the images onto kraft and watercolor paper, and then colored with Zig Clean Color Markers. The patterned papers and trees are from Reverse Confetti. I used a small snowflake punch and cloud border die to create the look of fresh snowfall, all framed within my favorite stitched square dies.

I’ve had so much fun playing along with the holiday hop, and now it’s your turn!
