A bit late...


Hello friends!!!

It's Savannah today... and I'm sharing that I'm going to be a bit late in posting our January challenge winner and featured players! 

There's a good reason:) I haven't visited everyone's blog to check out their projects yet! I will hopefully have all of that completed by tonight! So tomorrow I will post the winner and featured players. 

Thank you for being patient ❤️ 

Until then... here's a clue for our next challenge. Start thinking about how you can incorporate LOVE into your next PS project!! That's our challenge for February. LOVE LOVE LOVE! The great news about February's challenge is that it's really easy to enter! Here are ways to put "love" on your project: 
  • use a heart (or two or several)
  • use patterned paper with hearts
  • use the colors pink/red
  • stamp or die cut the word "Love" ***PS has lots of "love" stamps/dies!!!!!!
  • make an anniversary card
  • make a valentine's card or project
It's really going to be an easy challenge! So get ready to link up all of your creations!!!

That's it for me today. I'll be back tomorrow posting the winner and NEW challenge! 
Be blessed ❤️ Sav

Jill has a fun and cute style which is also clean and simple but she has an "out of the box" way of creating that I am sure you will all adore.

Sunday Recap from CHA!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello PS friends:)

I cannot believe this.... it's so surreal... it's been a dream of mine.... I'm at CHA with Kim!!!!!!!!!!!!

So today's post will be short and sweet:)

I hope you join in the fun with our January "cozy" and photo inspiration challenge! More details can be found HERE.

I didn't create anything for this week due to traveling... but here are a couple of ideas for making a cozy card:

  • use vellum- I think vellum over any loud pattern or over white would be very cozy (and actually vellum over white would be like this photo inspiration! LOVE it!)
  • anything about coffee makes me think of warm and cozy
  • two animals hugging... that's cozy
  • scarves, hats, gloves, etc--- that's always cozy! 
  • plaid paper or washi tape- cozy!
You get the idea;) Click HERE to play along or link up below! 







Come back for more inspiration this week- Kim might be sharing some photos from CHA! Hopefully I will be able to craft with her in her studio:) Have a fabulous day- be blessed;) ❤️ Sav

Paper Smooches - Our FEBRUARY 2017 Guest Designer is...


HUGE congrats to you!
This is the card I feel hard for...swoooon


Thank you all so much for trying out!  I always enjoy drooling over the entries.  
Our next guest designer search will begin on February 2nd
Some free range turkey farms use alpacas to guard their flocks from foxes, since alpacas are extremely territorial and will accept the turkeys as part of their herd, defending them by chasing off predators.
