A Tiny Miracle

I had mentioned in my last post that a very dear friend of mine had a baby girl. I think all babies are reason to celebrate. This little one however, has her own cause for celebration. Not only is she the first girl after 2 boys, but she was born on my friend's mom's birthday. Her mom passed away from cancer last year. I had more that I was going to say about this, but I'm getting teary-eyed, so I will just leave it at that and move on to sharing what I've done.
The page layout is from the Tiny Miracle SVG Kit from SVG Cuts. I don't know what it is about scrapbooking, but it feels very intimidating to me. I just can't seem to wrap my brain around it. So, I love that Mary at SVG Cuts is brilliant and all you have to do is choose your paper, the layout is already done! I had the Echo Park Bundle of Joy Boy paper already, (for another project yet to come) but when I saw that Mary had used the Echo Park Bundle of Joy Girl Collection, it was a no brainer. Had to us…

Christmas in July!

Now that Independence Day is past, it's time for Christmas! Well Christmas in July anyway. SVG Cuts launched a new kit yesterday. It's a Christmas Box Cards SVG Kit. There are definitely lots of folks that like to get a head start on their Christmas cards. Personally, I'm a "last minute, need to get my act together STAT" kinda girl, but I can appreciate the idea behind starting early. That being said, I'm gonna give myself big fat kudos, because I did purchase this kit today and not at Christmas time. Go me! It well definitely be closer to Christmas before I even think about making any of these, but they are really adorable and are a must for anyone's stash. So go get it!
As always, the kit is free with a purchase of $9.98 or more for a limited time!

My Sister-in-law's birthday was last week, so I needed to make her a card. Sooo many choices! I had really been wanting to make either the Party Box Card from the Summer Box Cards SVG Kit or the one I en…

Thank you's plus a new SVG Cuts Kit!

We got married 2 weeks ago. It was beautiful! I absolutely believe all that's important when a couple gets married is that moment you get to share with each other. Nothing else should matter. For lack of a better way to say it, as long as you get what you came for, everything else is trivial. Right? Right. Our sandwiches were soggy on the bottom during the reception and there was a bee hovering in my husbands face during the ceremony, but it was perfect anyway! That being said, what a great feeling to look up and look around and see the people you've invited truly enjoying themselves. We both feel very blessed. 
Oh and the Lanterns and S'more Boxes were a hit! I knew everyone would take their S'more Boxes with them (as they were the wedding favors), but I really hoped I could farm out the Lanterns too! Seriously, what would I do with 10 paper lanterns in our house? "Look Baby, we got married and 10 paper lanterns!" No? I didn't need to do ANY farming. Ev…
