Gratitude Documented with Shanna Noel

Today I am super excited with you to share a project
I will be working on thanks to my friend Shanna Noel

So this project she created is called Gratitude Documented. I will be documenting
the things I am grateful for in the month of November.

The best part about this project is that it could be your family or something simple as the coffee you have daily. You can create this anyway you would like.

Please see her website for awsome downloads that she has created such as tags, digi brushes and cut files.
 Here is my kit I gathered from my supplies:

I'm finally going to use my supplies that I have at home! I literally went shopping in my stash!
This may sound dumb... I'm excited to use my supplies!

My $1 bin from target came in handy!

Found this notebook at Target for $2.38 clearance! I cut the letters on my cricut with vinyl.

I am so ready to document what I am grateful.  

Today I am grateful for my best friend Sara who has the biggest heart. I thank god he connected us 14 years ago! She bought me this sweater. I love you Sara Bella!

so come document with us!

Use hashtag #gratitudedocumented xoxo Jossie

Kate Spade Phrase Stamp Review!

I am in Loooooooooove with this Kate Spade phrase stamp!

Here she is on my Kate Spade planner eek- Love them both!

I ordered this phrase stamp from Purse lady too 

I got it for $24 which included shipping . It was a "pre order" item but I did not care I knew I had to have this! 

It also comes with a black ink pad which is so handy to keep in your purse. The ink pad is not big and bulky. wink wink  

Here is my first stamp! lol
I stamped "live colorfully" because it fit my heart tag so perfect!
 ** Please do stop by Purse lady too they had excellent customer service and lightening fast shipping! I emailed them with a question and within 10 minutes they responded- now thats what I call GRRREAT customer service!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Eat cake for breakfast!!!!!!!!

Project Life- Go Bears!

Project Life Challenge: add autumn elements

I designed this page for the girls over at Stuck On U Sketches

come on by and play along! 
I have been coaching my daughter's cheer team and we got 2nd place this past week!

I love being a coach because I get to capture every minute of my daughter's last year cheering for youth football. I used Studio Calico's project life kit.

I am really excited to be part of the design team because it motivates me to get to my desk and create!

I also made this page with my Studio Calico scrapbook kit. This here is my son and my niece.  

I had a lot of fun creating this page too. My son has moved out so any pictures he send me I cherish. Isn't that what papercrafting is about? Document and savor all those little moments!

Come on by Stuck On U Sketches I would love to have you link up with us!

Happy Crafting!

Zink Happy!

Zink Happy!
I purchased this lil zero ink printer a couple months ago and it just sat on my shelf.
So many people shot it down said the photo quality was bad. Some people even returned this back to HSN. I was very discouraged after hearing all these reviews. I finally got a free moment from my crazy life and tested it out! Let me just tell you... I love this lil printer!  

This is the 1/2 inch adhesive zroll 

ZERO ink drying time why you may ask... because it's ZERO ink!

Added these strips to my KS planner and I was done in seconds! 

A closer look but the girl's faces look clear.

I also added the Love, Reyna  easily by using the zink happy app.
My overall opinion is this lil printer is fun and easy to use!

ZINK hAppy Smart App Printer™

hAppy is the portable, Wi-Fi®, app-accessory that allows you to print directly from smart phones and tablets. Just download the free ZINK Design & Print Studio™ app onto a smartphone or tablet (or use a 3rd party compatible app); load a ZINK zRoll™ (photographic-quality ZINK Paper in roll form), design, and then wirelessly print to the hAppy. It’s compatible with iPhone®, iPad®, and iPod touch®. hAppy is also compatible with Android™ smartphone and tablets and Amazon Kindle Fire™ tablets.

To check out more on this printer you can ck here:

 Lil Mermaid... It has been so long since I made cups! This one is for my sweet nephew who wanted to surprise his high school sweetheart.

I made these cups for a bridal shower. I really loved

                the way these came out! I hope the bridal party likes them too!

Project Life Challenge with Stuck On U Sketches!
Got to use my new Amy Tangerine cut & paste edition of project life.
I love the fact that I got to use it on my first class that I attended with her.
This was my first scrapbook class and I met so many awesome friends that I still craft with!
Cut and Paste! The challenge here was to add a calendar.

Love this edition! I really like the kits that are small because I am not intimidated on using the whole box since its tiny.

DIY Halloween Wreath a la Martha Stewart

Happy October Everyone!!!!!! This is my favorite time of the year! I love being silly with my kids and decorating the house. Which brings me to my post today. My crafty bestie found this wreath on Martha's blog. We took out a step but still ended up with a beautiful wreath. Mine is below and you can check hers out here:  Martha Stewart DIY Wreath   

Martha Stewart's Halloween Wreath

My girlfriend and I started off by picking up about 30 black roses from our local craft store. (nevermind the wine glasses)

The plan is to attach your roses onto your chipboard circle.

We placed the hot glue directly on each rose

Be sure to add lots of hot glue!

So this is a shot of my girlfriend's halfway through the process. You can add as much or as little roses you like. 
The whole idea is to have fun! 
Call your girlfriends and have a party!
It's not fun to craft alone!

Thanks for stopping by.......
