You & Me Card Set

Smiley from
Yes, I know I've been missing from my blog for a while. School is now over for the boys and next month will bring about the big family change that's been looming in the back of my mind for the past couple of months. I don't see much paper crafting in the near future (thank goodness for Studio J!!) mostly because all my crafting supplies will be packed move to our new house!

I'm excited about this move (I'll finally have my own space!), I'm just not so thrilled about packing up our house of 11 years and all the stuff that's in it. Going to be a big job.

And that's just MY stuff! Smiley from

Would you believe I actually did do some crafting this month? It is National Scrapbooking Month after all. Well, I did. I had a party last weekend and I made this card set for the hostess as a thank you. I used the exclusive stamp set that is only found in the You & Me kit available through the end of the month.

Take a look:

Stamps: You & Me (exclusive to the You & Me NSM Kit)
Inks: CTMH Cocoa, Sweet Leaf, Juniper
Papers: CTMH Wings Creative Basics

These cards were made using one of the card workshops found in the Wishes book from CTMH. Makes whipping up a nice set pretty easy!

If you'd like to get your own You & Me Kit before the end of the month, you can hurry over to my website and get one for your very own. But if you want an even better deal...

Consider joining my Craft Closet Crew! Not only is the Consultant Kit 50% off this month...making it only $64.50...but you'll get a You & Me kit absolutely free!

I'm looking for all kinds of crafters to join me and my team. Whether you want to create your own business, want a way to earn some extra money, or just want to get a discount on amazing stamping and scrapbooking products...I Want You!

Studio J: My Fairytale

So it seems to have been a while since my last post. Darn that whole "life gets in the way" thing!

But I have a special layout to share today. Engineer may not appreciate me sharing it, but today I can do whatever I want. So here it is...

Studio J: Sweetheart Reflections Kit

The quote, in case you can't read it, says,

"Every once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale."

I wanted to have a layout of just me and Engineer...and truthfully, I was afraid I wouldn't be able to find enough pictures to fill the layout I chose! I am usually the one behind the camera (like many of you, I'm guessing) and Engineer...well, he's really good natured about having his picture taken, even though I'm sure it's not his favorite thing to do. So I was pleasently surprised to find so many of just us together.

So why can I do anything I want today you ask? Go ahead...ask.
Well, it's my birthday today! Smiley from

And since it's my day and I can do anything I want...I've opted to not do any of the regular things I do about the house like:

Smiley from laundry

shopping Smiley from

Smiley from cleaning

or cooking Smiley from

I had a nice visit with some friends that stopped by earlier and later tonight I get to pick someplace to go for dinner. No cooking or cleaning! I may even go to a craft store or two and clean out their scrapping and beading sections!

Now that would truly be a fairytale!
