it’s a spring thing

Gorgeous weather? Took a vacation today. Wind and cold blew in. Bits of snow. Just bits. A flurry here and there.But a look out the window at the lilac bush and its green buds a-burstin' gives one hopes of the warm weather to return very soon. And then a layout like this from little ol' Nichol just adds to the excitement that we know it's spring. [ Shapes | Flower Bouquet / Going Places (title) / Storyboard #6 ] Love . . . love . . . Nichol's use of Loni's new Flower Bouquet kit here! And how she popped up [...]

Well, let me tell ya . . . Winter decided to make one last show before moving on to Spring today.

So what better way to celebrate the first day of spring than some gorgeous spring cards from that darling of a girl, Miss Nichol. sooooo diggin' the ensemble! and loooove the stamp on the pull [...]

recipe | rumbi rice bowls

Okay, I think this by far my most favorite thing I've made recently . . . and I made it twice last week! I got it from favfamilyrecipes.com. Our family is kind of split on our feeling towards broccoli + zucchini, so I just put in a little of both. My favorite is the carrots and celery along with chicken+rice and that sauce! Yum! We also made our rice without beans. I dunno. That thought just seemed to ruin it for me. Also, after researching coconut milk, which really is good in the rice, I found out it's not exactly [...]

‘negative’ cards?

Ohhhhh no, it's not what you think! I love using negative space. It's kind of like a 'die cut' way to emboss.It just adds a whole other dimension to a project. Take a look at Robyn's cards: [ Shapes | Signed.Sealed.Delivered. ] Loooove how she added the sentiment right into the envelope! Brilliant idea! Aaaaand, she used my most favoritist (yeah, it's a word) envelope!The pull-tab adds so much fun to your ensemble.And adding a stamped sentiment to the pull tab? Love it! Here's what Robyn has to say: When Kerri came out with this fabulous card kit, I was [...]
