June Kit and Add-on are up!


I can't believe June is almost here already! The kit and add-on are just
uber cool this month! I've been waiting with baited breath for the new
Rebellious line to release from Prima, and it is finally here! It is so
punk and so industrial, and so HOT!!! :)

The main kit is called Steam Punk and features the patterned papers from the
Rebellious line, a really cool 12x12 transparency with gold glitter circles
from Prima, lime green lace, and really cool beard stickers from
imadeyouabeard's Etsy shop. The vintage papers are from all sorts of
industrial type books with calculations and illustrations about machine shop
practice, electroplating, chemistry, and steel construction.

The add-on kit is called Vinyl Ink and has some fantastic embellishments to
go with the main kit. Gorgeous Prima flowers along with some really cool
notecards that would make an awesome mini album! A robot vinyl decal, grid
rub-ons, vinyl fabric, and assorted hardware pieces also add to the fun.

The kits are up for sale at the Etsy shop ( The main kit costs $22 and the add-on costs $18.

Now for an update on the baby: IT'S A GIRL!!! I just couldn't wait to find
out, and I am SOOO pleased!!! Everything is going smoothly and I am really
starting to show! It's really neat how all of a sudden I have so many deep
conversations with people I haven't ever really talked to before. I have
been planning the baby room décor (think gnomes and toadstools) and am
starting to make all sorts of fun dolls and quilts and wall art for the
room. I plan on starting a new blog to feature what all I make with
tutorials and pictures.

I hope you are doing well and hope you have a great June!

Butterfly Pause May Papercrafting Kit

Hello everyone!

Sorry for the LOOOONG delay. Life has been crazy.

We had a fantastic trip to Holland to celebrate my grandfathers 100th
birthday. Being able to see my family again after 4 years was so very
special to me. On April 24th my dear sweet Opa left us forever and I will
always cherish each and every moment I spent with him. He was my hero.

On a lighter note, everything is moving along nicely with the pregnancy. I
have been extremely lucky to have avoided morning sickness during the first
trimester, and am now 16 weeks along and looking (and feeling) more than
slightly pregnant. :)

We have a gorgeous May kit that is called Butterfly Pause. It highlights
the beauty of spring, and features several new lines of paper including SEI
Mimosa and K&Co Wild Raspberry. The embellishments include Jenni Bowlin
Pearl Flowers, a rubber butterfly appliqué, yummy trim and fabric, a vintage
hat tag I picked up in Holland, assorted vintage book pages, and so much
more! The kit is on sale in my Etsy shop ( for
only $20 and I have a very limited supply of them.

I hope everyone has a fantastic May!
