I am really excited to be doing this blog hop with Xyron and Cardmaker Magazine. I am so lucky to get to work with companies that I love and believe in their product. It makes being CREATIVE so much fun! 

Go today to follow day 2 of the blog hop and for your chance at some GREAT prize giveaways. Please go to my facebook page as well for some great prizes....



So yesterday, my cute friend Beth Kingston called me. Oh my... if you see her on HSN you know she is amazing. Yes, she is the QUEEN of HSN and she is just as charming, cute and talented and FUNNY as you see on TV. We talked about life and our recent trip together teaching in Portugal. We talked about how much we both LOVE teaching and traveling (and each other!!!). I told her I wish she could go to EVERY event that I teach at. We both want to promote our love of being creative.  

The foundation of being CREATIVE is the adhesives that you use... right? FYI... BETH KINGSTON will be doing a mini workshop or TWO on my TC Caribbean cruise in November. YEAH!!!! Since this cruise sold out so fast, please know that in 2015 I will be doing another cruise as well as Inspiration Unlimited. 

Now to todays PROJECT...

I have a true confession. I haven't been
a big fan of designing cards until now.
I am NOW officially a CARD LOVING woman.
What changed me?????
Well, it was my TC eBosser Craftwell machine with my embossing folders.

I find it super EASY... you will find that it's so easy to make simple yet beautiful cards in no time at all.
The foundation is always amazing adhesive.
There is no way getting around this.

Here is how to create the HELLO card:

1. Run your white card stock sized A2 (or whatever you prefer) through the TC cut & emboss machine with the embossing folder. (word collage TC Craftwell 8.5x12 folders). I like to use Bazzill card stock.
2. Use the Fiskars punches: (large hexagon) and large stars. Simply use the "TC Xyron Adhesive kit" to create dimension by applying a pop up dot behind the hexagon and add gold stars and sequins with the liquid adhesive from the kit. It will dry clear.
3. Create dimensional stars by punching two large stars with the Fiskar punch. Score and fold in 1/2 and glue together in the center with the liquid adhesive and adhere to the card.
4. Cut HELLO tag from TC paper- YOU ARE MY HAPPY tag paper and adhere to the bottom of the card. Corner round the bottom of the card as desired. 

How to create the BOW card: 

1. Take white card stock and cut to size desired. Run white paper through TC cut & emboss Craftwell machine, using the TC embossing folder- Wood Grain Cottage sized 8.5x 12" h. Corner round the bottom of the card with Fiskars punch.
2. Take 6x6 paper pad- YOU ARE MY HAPPY and cut diagonal stripe pattern paper to 2" h. Place along top of card with TC Xyron Mega Runner. 
3. Cut bow using a die or template online and create and apply to the center of the diagonal stripe paper with dimensional foam dots. Adhere two gold TC sequins to the center of the bow with the TC liquid adhesive. 
4. Add seam binding ribbon (blush- color) to the right side card edge. Adhere sticker to the right side bottom section of card from TC Daily Stories sticker sheet-Good Times.

NOTE: the TC eBosser machine from Craftwell is SOLD OUT! Please shop at your local scrapbook store to find the machine. Retailers- order directly from your favorite distributor. Many of my folders are SOLD OUT too. Watch for them to be back in stock.

This is a special day...
my daughter Gentry is 22 years old today.
This sweetie is just so loved.
I thought I would do a "get to know" Gentry.
Many of you know her...
but if you don't I thought I would share about her.

1. Gentry loves all things being creative. She always made her own clothes, head bands, art work for her room.
2. She loves to do make up and hair
3. She was accepted and was a ART MAJOR at BYU
4. She is the family stylist. No joke!!!!
5. She even cuts Zach's hair. *note: photo from TWO years ago.... crazy how fast they grow!!!!

9. She is my only child that DOES not have BLUE eyes. She has GREEN eyes.
10. She is my only GIRL who is dark headed like her dad. She loved the song...
"Your my BROWN EYED girl" when she was very little. Note- she has green eyes though. She likes to be different. 

11. She is CRAZY silly.... She likes to TRAVEL with me. We tend laugh a lot.
12. She has worked for me part time for the past two years.
13. She is going to be working for me full time in about a month.
14. She is excited to do an internship.
15. Her next trip with me is to NEW YORK CITY in May... for business. She is not complaining....

16. I always make a birthday SASH for the girls. She likes to sew...did you see the POOF she made on her blog?
She didn't mind that sometimes they were "homemade."
17. Mandatory photo shoots on birthdays. I have taught them to take LOTS of photos.
18. She uses a CANON camera for all her photography (like me!)
Her in-laws gave her a new Canon camera for Christmas.

19. Her best friends are MCKAY, TAYLOR, DEVAN and me.
She calls me all the time... I love this!

20. She loves fashion too.
21. She loves her niece and nephews. A LOT!!!!!
22. She is excited to be a mommy herself one day.
23. She does not have a middle name....
24. She loves CARBS...
25. She loves to read. She would rather read than go out.

HAPPY HAPPY 22nd BIRTHDAY sweet daughter.
I love you so very much.
I hope you know how special you are to me.
I love your love for life and
for your family. You are a wonderful &
kind woman. I love you Gent!!!!!!
