Paper Crafting: Follow Your Heart Card

Paper crafting - making cards, marbling paper...and making paper - is one of the first types of crafts I remember doing as an "adult."  When I start "playing" with my Evolution Die Cutter I get so excited...the possibilities are endless...and sometimes that sends me off on a tangent...and sometimes I never know where i will end up.

Bear with me on the tutorial. I had one (or ten) things in mind and then my hands took me some place else and this sweet little card was created. Can't you imagine this on a small block of wood or a canvas too? I kind of am in love with the colors and the arrows...and the hearts...and the polka dots!

The BIG Move: California to Texas!

Every morning I wake up and still can hardly believe that I live in Austin,Texas!
I was a born California girl, and I suppose I always will be...
but for the last few months I have been attempting to settle in to my new home in Texas.


I do admit that I may have cried the first morning (and on many other occasions) when I actually had to tell the barista my order at the local coffee shop. "At home," my coffee was practically waiting for me every day at my favorite coffee shop. Yes, I know it is ridiculous, but I think that is what made it all sink in...all the way to the ground.

Vegetable and Potato Empanadas | Campbell's Labels for Education #Labels4Edu #cbias

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.

For months my family was living and eating on the fly. As we packed up our California home, there was little time to experiment with new recipes - much less cook old ones - but now that we are settled into our new home, everyone is practically begging for something new and exciting for breakfast, lunch, snacks...and especially dinner! Well it was a necessity to come up with some new creations that would satisfy my hungry kids hunger and taste buds!

Simply Rustic Embossed Metal Heart Art

I love hearts all year long (why confine them to February!?). I also love experimenting with my Evolution Die Cutter and combining it with cuttable metal sheets and embossing folders was a fun way to add a twist to a simple, rustic pallet. I adore the contrast of the shiny metal against the rough dark stained wood, and that touch of embossing makes it even extra special!

Pretty Paper Pinwheel Centerpieces

The last few months of my life have been insane,
and to add to that insanity I threw my daughter a birthday party right before we moved.
Last month I posted about the A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E
mini sugar cookie favor boxes I crafted...and finally (better late than never, right?)
I am showing you a simple but oh so pretty paper pinwheel centerpiece I made for the party as well. I used the same Chalkboard Paper Pack as I did for the favors...because it has to coordinate, right!?
