Ignite 2016! The Best Week of Summer!

Every year I make a week's worth of cards for my daughter to open each day while she's away at church camp. She is on the green team, in case you were wondering why all the cards were green. My 5th card will be delayed in posting, but the first 4 days are ready to be presented. Camp is Monday through Friday and they have "holidays" each day they are there: Unibrow Day, Fast Forward Day (You in Future), Plot Twist Day (Favorite TV Character), Color Wars Day and Friday they come home.

Happy 17th Birthday Tateonna!

Today is my daughter from another mother's birthday! Tateonna is 17 today! 

This was taken by Tati on our trip to the Clark County Fair back in April. 

She has grown into a beautiful young lady and we cannot wait to see where life takes her!

Tati loves anything personalized!

Because You Matter...Mom (Updated)

Hello gardeners & blossoms! Today is my last day as a guest designer for Jaded Blossom. It's bittersweet for me because I've had such a wonderful experience. Now it's time for me to focus on graduating in two weeks.

I don't talk about my mom much, but I get my craftiness from her and I love that she's so loving and giving. She's always thinking of others and showing her appreciation for her co-workers. My mom is a hero, she is a nurse. An LPN (she says it stands for Low Paid Nurse) She's pretty funny too! 

Nurse's Day is on Friday, May 6th and I wanted to show how much I appreciate her and her profession.

So I decided to change the background on the letters as it was hard to see mom. This is the updated version below. With the red shadow the "mom" just pops! I created the shadow in my Silhouette DE software and used the similar font KG PDX Bridgetown for the shadow. I made the letters to be about 1.22" or so and offset.

Jaded Blossom April 2016 Release Day

Happy Friday! It's release day! Who's excited? I know I am! Today we are showcasing the new School Designer Tapes and the freebie - Chalkboard.

Jaded Blossom - Chalkboard (freebie)
We R Memory Keepers - Fuse Tool

While searching for my Hershey Nuggets earlier this week, I found a bag in the back of my closet with all these school supplies for a teacher. And I thought to myself that I should make a basket or two for the PTA at my daughter's old elementary school to give away to some new teachers. I need to get a second basket now.

My second project is a cute bag with a card attached using the School Designer Tapes. My daughter never had to ride the bus to school in all of her 13 years of school. Her best friend Tateonna (AKA Tati) rides the bus to school and I knew immediately that these designer tapes were going to be used to make something for her bus driver. I really think this turned out cute and would make any bus driver smile.

Jaded Blossom April 2016 Sneak Peek Day 4

Happy Spring! Today we unveiled the Cherry Blossom stamp set. I must confess that this was the first card I designed when I got my stamps. I immediately thought of my favorite couple Kristina & Major Nelson, who both work in our nation's capital...Washington, D.C. Major tells stories through his cell phone camera and yesterday was no different, he took this simple photo of the Washington Monument. 

Believe it or not, my card was made before this was taken. He's my most Zen friend for almost 25 years now. I plan on sending them the card and I'm keeping the treat for myself, well because I have Hershey Nuggets somewhere in the house and I cannot find them at the time this was due so I put in a Kind Bar for this 30 day challenge I'm doing.
