Hi everyone! :)

I am on a mission this year to de-stash!! To get rid of a lot of my collections that I have been "collecting" over the years!! :) -- You will see more on this subject in the weeks to come :)

For this layout, I used up a bag I had with odds and ends of October Afternoon papers and stickers, including the 'Seaside' collection :)

Cousins! -- featuring Paper House Productions and Xyron! :)

Hi everyone!

 I wanted to share a layout I made for the Paper House Productions and Xyron blog hop!  I used Xyron's 'Sticker Maker' and 'Tape Runner' along with Paper House Productions One Big Happy Family collection




I started by using the Xyron Tape Runner to adhere down my papers and photo :)




Then I chose a paper that had little circles that I punched out to make stickers out of using the Xyron Sticker Maker :)






Once the little circles were stickers, I placed them on my page :)




And here is my finished page! :)










And we have a fabulous prize package to give away this week!

You Brighten My Day! -- featuring Doodlebug Design :)

Hi everyone! :)

I wanted to share a couple of cards I made recently with the 'Fairy Tales' collection from Doodlebug Design :)






Also -- Cindy had asked me once how I stored my cards that aren't mailed right away ... and I wanted to share that too :)

I found this old letter holder at an antique store once and that is where I store the cards that aren't mailed right away -- and BONUS!! It's my fave color PINK! :)
