I can’t begin tell you how excited I am. I had such a fun time guesting with them in June, and just keep wanting pinching myself.

Thanks so much, MFT, for inviting me to be part of the team. I look forward to making lots of fun stuff!

Enough hop talk. Here’s what I made.


I used two new stamp sets together to make this guy: Feline Friends and Charmed Cats. I also pulled out the previously released Hexalongs dies.

To make the middle cat stand out a bit, I tied a bow with blue floss and just added it to it. Just a little something thing.



That’s all I have. I’ll be back again later… gators.

Thanks for stopping by!



Today’s Card

Hi all!

Just a card to share today.


Made this one with Technique Tuesday’s new Hello – Greenhouse Society stamp set, which¬†debuts officially today.


I love all the phrases in the set, especially. So many different combinations to put together.

I ended with a kinda cool, kinda bleached look on the card.


I stamped the flowers on a light blue patterned paper. Then I outlined much of the flower with a light blue marker. I also added a little color in the middle of that big sunflower. It’s subtle but cool!

That’s all I have! Be back later, gators!



MFT Rewind

Boy, oh boy! What a fun experience the last week has been! I’ve loved joining the crew over at My Favorite Things for their June ¬†release countdown festivities. ¬†(Thanks again, guys, for inviting me to play! Totally honored! And totally had a blast-a-roo!) In honor of this month’s Rewind, I’ve got one more project to share with you. mft_9_smilemore1_teri I created the background by simply die-cutting the striped design with the Stripes Cover-Up Die-namics die from white cardstock and placing it on a green cardstock background. To make the file tab, I simply took a piece of cardstock and cut it with one of the ¬†File Folder Edges Die-namics. mft_9_smilemore2_teri The words are from the Smile stamp set, while the star is from the Blueprints 16 Die-namics dies. The circle and clip are from the Office Supplies Die-namics dies. That’s all I have for you! Once again, be sure to check out the MFT Blog for links to all of their designers, who have shared projects made with this month’s release. You’ll find the release here. See you again soon!

It’s Studio AE Blog Hop time. ¬†(Woo-hoo!)

And I’ve got a couple cards to share with you today that I made with the new Pure Magic by Ali Edwards stamp set.


Here’s card #1.


Besides Ali’s stamp set, I also used a couple Technique Tuesday dies — Photo Frame and Nested Stars. (The Nested Stars dies just started shipping on Monday.)


And here’s card #2.


I cut all the stars with the Nested Stars dies. The sentiment is from Ali’s set.


And here is everyone else who is blog hopping today.

Be sure to leave some love as you go. Someone who comments during the hop will score a $25 e-Gift Card to The winner will be announced on the Technique Tuesday blog on the 15th.

MFT Countdown: Day 7

And like that, we meet again!

I’ve got a couple more projects made with some fun, new stuff from My Favorite Things to share with you.

And 5… 4… 3… 2… go! ūüôā


Oh. The. Pressure. (Hee!)

I created this one with a couple of MFT’s new products for June: At The Office stamp set and Office Supplies (paper clip and paper), File Folder Edges and Blueprints 16 (star) Die-namics dies.

I really dug¬†all the different phrases in the stamp set so I thought it would be fun to just mix a bunch of them together. I dunno. It’s kinda busy but it kinda resembles my mind when I work. It is going a mile (ok… two miles… wait… five miles) a minute.


I made the file folder tab by taking a piece of cardstock and cutting it with one of the File Folder Edges Die-namics dies. The process looked a bit like this.


And here’s how things look all cut up!


I also made this card with some of same supplies: At The Office stamp set and Office Supplies (paper, circle and clip) and Blueprints 16 (star & flag) Die-namics dies.


The little circle in the middle of the star is from the Office Supplies Die-namics dies. I actually just wanted something to sauce up the star so I adhered it to the star and then added a gem on top. Easy peasy.


And you might be wondering about that notebook paper pattern. Well, I stamped it with the new Notebook Paper Background stamp. Fun stuff.

So that’s all I have for you today.

Don’t  forget to hit the My Favorite Things blog. You’ll find links to all the MFT designers who are sharing projects today.  They are a pretty fab group! (And don’t forget: The products from MFT’s new release land on June 10th.)

MFT Countdown: Day 6

Hello, hello!

Another day. Another something fun to share made with some fun new stuff from My Favorite Things.


I don’t fancy myself an amazing coloring artist, but I knew I wanted to try to make something fun with the new Sending Hugs stamp set and coordinating die.

I paired her up with a few butterflies stamped with the Every Day is a Picnic stamp (and coordinating dies).


So the flags. You might be wondering how did I made the flags.

The process went a bit like this.

I die-cut some flags using the Pierced Fishtail Flags Stax Die-namics dies. (Yes, if you have been following me the last few days, you might be feeling the need to stage a die intervention. Yes, yes. I’m a fan. Hee!)


I stamped a sentiment on a flag. (The sentiments I used are also from the Sending Hugs stamp set.)


I used my scissors to snip off a little bit of excess.


I added a bit of glue and wrapped the flag around a toothpick.

And I ended up with something like this.


Toothpicks aren’t your thing? Consider using long stickpins or corsage pins instead.

Once again, don’t ¬†forget to¬†hit the¬†My Favorite Things blog. You‚Äôll find links to all the super duper, extra fab (with cherries on top) MFT designers who are sharing projects today. ¬†(And don‚Äôt forget: The products from MFT‚Äôs new release land on June 10th.)
