Lawn Fawn Fall/Winter release I haven't been able to keep my mind off of all the new sets. The stamps, dies, paper, embellishments, and trimmings are so cute--and I couldn't help but try one out and make a cute card. If you watched my video about the new release, you know that this new set, Joy to the woods, is my favorite set right now. I'm obsessed with the birch tress, the little fox, the bird, and all of the other cute elements! Another thing I'm totally in love with are these new dies that make creating hills for scenes a piece of cake. What I absolutely love about LF stamps sets is that they always include all of the pieces you need to create multiple scenes with coordinating sentiments. So if this were to be your first stamp set from LF you could make lots of different cards with it. Love!

blog and Youtube Channel! I purchased a plain white medium size canvas tote bag from Michaels for only $4.00 and used Lawn Fawns die set, Louie's ABCs on some contact paper to create a stencil and hand painted the name Sammy onto the bag. I made this for my niece Samantha--since it's back-to-school time!
For more details on how to create your very own personalized tote bag feel free to watch the video below!
I hope you enjoyed this simple tutorial and have a great day!

I was asked, by my niece’s mom, to make decorations for her 4th birthday party—which was going to be a Frozen theme; and, of course I said yes! I could never turn down an opportunity to make decorations for a party. After all, that’s what I do for a living. Whenever I’m creating party decorations I always do my research on the characters, colors, and popular quotes (especially for this movie, since I’ve never seen it).
The main inspiration for the color scheme was the two characters, Elsa and Anna. I used lots of blues, purples, pinks, and white. To create the banner I used Lawn Fawns stitched banner dies, and Louie’s ABCs—using the stitched banner dies made things so much easier! I’m so happy that I have that die set. I made tons and tons of different color tassels because I wanted to use them not only on the banner but for the center pieces as well.
I made the cake, the cake topper, and the “Some people are worth melting for” framed sentiment. To create the cake toppers, I went to Etsy and purchased some Frozen digital clip art, printed these two main characters out, placed them on some cake pops sticks and placed them into the cake. So simple—yet so cute. To create the framed sentiment I used some Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock (A2 size) and created this beautiful watercolor background and when it tried I ran it through my printer—after creating the sentiment in Photoshop. I absolutely love the way it turned out.
My younger sister, Melanie created some of the sweets at the party, like the Olaf cake pops, cookies, and marshmallow pops. She did such a great job as always!
For the centerpieces—I've always wanted to do a jumbo balloon with tissue paper tassels and this was perfect time for me to do them! I knew it would look so cute with the colors for this party; and, to hold it all down I made some adorable mason jar snow globes with my nieces picture inside that I made on Photoshop. I had help removing the background of the original image I took of her—so thank you to my niece’s mom’s co-worker who did that for me!
Overall I think I did pretty good on this party—being that I only had a few days to prepare for it. My brother, his girlfriend, and my nieces loved it, and that made me so happy!

One day my sweet tooth kicked in and I needed something sweet and I needed it fast. I remembered that I had purchased some almond milk, and searched around the fridge for fresh fruits. I found mango, strawberries, blueberries, and then I came across a bag if cherries. I'd never had a cherry flavored shake before and I was a bit hesitant to try it out but I just gave it a shot. I took a handful of cherries cut them in half and removed the seeds, next I took about a cup of almond milk, and a tbsp. of organic peanut butter and blended them together. I poured it into a medium size glass and topped it off with a cold cherry. I loved it so much--it was so tasty! I highly recommend it.
