Right Now

Right now, Emma is obsesses with the animal kingdom. Ask her what her favorite animal is and after a long pause, she will list at least 20 critters. We are lucky to live a short drive away from La Jolla where a large group of sea lions reside. She was amazed. Living in San Diego, wild animal sitings are rare, so she was excited to see these animals in their own habitat.
I am thrilled to be a part of the Epiphany Crafts design team. I have quickly learned to love my new tools and I think you will too. I will let you know when and where they are available as soon as they hit the stores! For this stick pin, I used a Tim Holtz Memo pin and glued my Epiphany Crafts heart on with a dab of Beacon's 3 in 1 craft glue. I will definitely be making more of those!

I made a little pocket for my journaling, the Lily Bee die cuts make it easy peasy.

My favorite part of this lay out was this little banner in the corner. I was so excited to find out that my new Mini Banner Alpha stamps from Pink Persimmon are the most perfect size for my Epiphany Crafts Design Studio Epoxy Circles. Love it. I stamped my alphas first and then used my new tool to make the embellishments. I lined them up on my paper and used a pencil to mark where I wanted to machine stitch. I stitched my lines and then glued on my circles with my craft glue.

I am loving these banner stamps, stay tuned for more projects with them!
Please check out the Pebbles Inc blog , my friend Suzanne Sergi and I were challenged to do a scraplift of ourselves, come see what we created HERE.
Thanks for stopping by today,
