April PTI Blog Hop

Hello there. I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Holiday with family and friends. We had a great day that started out with a great Easter morning service at church. Can't get any better than that.

Ya know, I used to really struggle with masculine cards...A LOT...but with the most recent release from Papertrey Ink I don't have to struggle any more. The new stamp sets they have are AWESOME!! Take a gander at all the great new stuff HERE. You won't be disappointed.

If you want to hop along on the PTI blog hop, start HERE.

Here is the first card I created as soon as my sets arrived. Just couldn't wait to ink them up, that is how much I love them. And with three boys of my own, these stamp sets will be of great use.

And I couldn't just stop at one card. This card was made for my nephew, I'm sure he will like it. It was so easy to make and the inspiration just flowed.

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy hopping today!!

All supplies for both cards are from Papertrey Ink

Hi everyone! Haven't been doing a lot of crafting lately with soccer in full swing and since we are the coordinators for it. But I did manage to add a few items to my etsy shop. You can click on the link on the side bar to view the new magnets I made.

I LOVE making magnets. Not only are they functional but they are so pretty hanging up on my frig. They are perfect for hanging important notes that you need to see on a daily basis. Trust me there are some things that if I don't have a daily reminder for them they are forgotten.

Sorry I haven't gotten crafty lately. I will be back soon and for sure on Monday for the Papertrey Ink blog hop. Love all the inspiration when they have those once a month and this months theme is all about masculine cards.

Thanks for stopping by!!
