PTI February 2013 Blog Hop

Hi everyone!  I have a simple post today.  I am participating in the Feb Blog Hop for PTI and the challenge this month is monograms.  I made this simple card by creating a background from 1/4 inch strips of paper and then covering the whole thing with a sheet of white cardstock with the letter cut out in the center (note I cut the letter with my Cricut).  Very CAS!  Can't wait to see what everyone else has created!


Thanks for visiting!


Paper: PTI White, Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, New Leaf, Ripe Avacado, and Spring Moss
Other: Cricut with Plantin Schoolbook cart

PTI Make it Monday #104 - Pinwheels

Hi everyone!  I have to tell you, I had the BEST time last night with some great girlfriends I haven't seen in quite a while!  We spent the evening at Archivers crafting and chatting away!  It was tooo much fun!

While we were there, I decided to make this card for this week's Make-it-Monday challenge at PTI.  The challenge was to incorporate pinwheels into your project.  I decided I wanted to try something a little unexpected and incorporate pinwheels into a masculine project.  Here goes:


I think it turned out pretty well...hope my guy thinks so too!

Papertrey Anniversary Contest - Take 1

Hi everyone!  Well, it's that time of year again...time for the annual Papertrey Ink Anniversary celebration!  This year we have been asked to create some projects inspired by the designers' favorite projects throughout the year.  So, here's my first one:

This card is inspired by a card by Heather Nichols.  She used the same tree and sentiment stamps on her project.  This one is super simple, but I like how clean it is.
