Currently List #54

Hello! It's Tuesday and it's time for another Currently List!

Watching: I didn't watch any of my usual shows because I was watching the news plus I randomly watched an episode of Gotham yesterday. Now I think I may have to watch all of the previous episodes...it seems like an interesting show.

Reading: I'm catching up on the news especially about the situation in Baltimore and the earthquake in Nepal.

Listening: This song is still awesome.

Making: I have a couple of weeks to catch up on and I'm hoping to get done with them by the end of the week.

Feeling: I stayed up until 2 or 3 AM and I had to be up at 6:30 AM. I was up all night watching the news on Baltimore.

Planning: I haven't been able to work on too many workshops lately like Find Your Voice and My Details. So I'm hoping to working on these two workshops in the next few days. I seriously need to start schedule some time in to work on these workshops. Plus I need to catch up on reading. I've started some books again, but haven't been able to finish them. I hate that I may have to start scheduling time to read because I love to read without trying to schedule or "force" myself to. I think what I might end up doing is just starting one of the books that I began to read a few months ago, but never finished and this time actually finish the book. I tend to try to read several books at a time (i.e. in a month) and it's just not working anymore...I really do not have a lot of time anymore.

Loving: I love my bed, but I love it even more when I am sleepy and tired. I think I see a nap in my future.

Until next time...

Captured Project Life Cards

Hey! Hey! Happy Sunday! Today, I want to share some Project Life cards that I made using my new Freckled Fawn stamp set and a new mini polaroid stamp that I bought at Michaels.

Supplies Used:
  • Hero Arts Neon Blue Ink
  • Hero Arts Neon Pink Ink
  • Versafine Onyx Black Ink
  • Studio G-Polaroid Stamp
  • Acrylic Blocks

I really love how these cards came out. These cards will be perfect for a layout that I plan to make in the next few days. I simply used the Hero Arts neon blue ink and the versafine ink and then stamped onto my cardstock.
I also love this card as well. I made a few mistakes with stamping (some ink got in the wrong places), but I think it came out ok. I plan to use these cards in my Project Life layouts.

I plan to use this stamp set a lot. Be sure to look out for the layout that I plan to make in the next few days with this stamp set.

What have you been creating lately? Feel free to share.

Until next time...

Currently List #53

Hello! It's Tuesday and it's time for another Currently List!

Watching: Wow this novela is getting better and better. This novela is very similar to Pasion de Gavilanes, but there a few things that I noticed that are different.

Reading: So I bought this book last week. I haven't started it yet, but I will tonight. I only took a few peeks inside, but I'm interested to see how this book turns out. I have to say I was a little shocked by the title (I promise I'm not a prude lol), but I think that is what attracted me to the book. I just have to see what is inside. I also looked up reviews, but they are somewhat mixed.

Listening: Just one of the many songs that was on the Workout Latin station on iTunes Radio.

Making: I can finally start making some more Project Life cards since I just got some new Fiskars replacement blades. I also bought two tiny stamps from Michaels and they are perfect for the cards that I plan to make.

Feeling: I'm feeling really restless and I am not sure why.

Planning: I need to plan to work on my Project Life album before I get behind again.

Loving: I seriously love the Workout Latin station on the iTunes Radio. They have been playing some really great songs on the station.

April 2015 Freckled Fawn Oh Deer Me Kit Review

Eek! A few days ago, I received my Freckled Fawn Oh Deer Me kit! You may remember that I mentioned a while back that I had purchased a few kits to try out before actually subscribing. Well, I finally subscribed in February and I have been loving the kits!

This month's kit is really awesome! It definitely reminds me of Spring and I think that is what Freckled Fawn's goal was.

April 2015 Oh Deer Me Kit

This month's kit included the following:
  • Set of yellow puffy alpha stickers
  • Roll of washi tape
  • Set of white cloud paper clips
  • Sheet of enamel heart stickers
  • One flair
  • Sheet of flower stickers
  • Set of rhinestone image stickers
  • Set of wood veneers
  • Set of felt stickers
The kit came in a polka dot zipper pouch. Below are some close ups of the items.

I'm not a huge fan of the color yellow, but I absolutely love the yellow alphas. I am also loving the sticker sheets. You can actually color them in or just leave them as they are.

The paper clips, flair, wood veneers (my fave!) are awesome! Check out that washi tape! I love the colors on it plus it is so thick!

Last month, I found out that Freckled Fawn will no longer have stamp sets as part of their kit. However, you can purchase them separately. I was a little disappointed that they will not be in the kit, but I am glad that subscribers can still get the stamp discounted. I was and still am really excited about this stamp. I have so many ideas and projects that I want to use this stamp set on.

I also purchased the subscriber surprise which was four different packs of wood veneers. I really love the emoticons, umbrella, and cloud wood veneer shapes. These will be perfect for my Project Life cards, layouts, and greeting cards.

Until next time...

Carefree Voxbox

Hey there! A few months ago, I blogged about Influenster and the Reese's voxbox that I received. You can read about the Reese's voxbox here and you can learn more about Influenster here.

A few days ago, I received the Carefree voxbox. The voxbox had a pack of 20 regular, unscented to go pantiliners as well as a coupon.

I have heard of Carefree and have used their products before. These pantiliners are great and you can't even tell that you are wearing one. They are thin and can absorb moisture really well. I think it was cool that Influenster chose to send out the packs of pantiliners that were unscented rather than the ones that are scented. There are people who have sensitive skin and it seems as if they took that into consideration. Ladies, I definitely recommend that you try Carefree products if you have not tried them before.

DISCLOSURE: I received the products described in this post complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster. All opinions are my own and no compensation was received.

Until next time....

Watching: Oh Law & Order...how I love thee.

Making: I have a Project Life layout that I have to work on as well a few other layouts that I have been wanting to finish.

Feeling: This weeks just keeps getting better and better. I am so loving it and I can't wait for the weekend!

Currently List #51

Hello there! It's Tuesday and it's time for another Currently List!

Watching: I swear this show just keeps getting better and better. I can't believe that Michael Ealy is supposed to be serial killer on the show.

Reading: I've been catching up on some blog posts. I just have to say that I absolutely love Bloglovin. It has all of my favorite blogs all in one place and it makes it super easy to read the blogs.

Listening: This. Song. Is. Amazing.

Making: I'm using my Freckled Fawn kits to make some Project Life cards. I was inspired by Florence Antonette's Project Life cards that she made using Freckled Fawn's March kit.

Feeling: It's been a really great day. There are going to be some changes coming up soon and I just have a feeling that it's going to be awesome.

Planning: I still can't believe that I have not started on my wedding album. I have the pictures and the supplies, but I'm just not sure which album I want to use. I have a Project Life mini album, but I am also thinking about using a 12x12 Project Life album. Decisions, decisions....

Loving: Spring used to be my favorite season, but now I can't choose between Fall and Spring. Either way, I am loving Spring and this weather.

Until next time...

Simple Stories SN@P Birthday Card

Today, I want to share two cards that I made last week. I really wanted and needed to make some cards, but I kept putting it off. I knew that my friend's daughter's birthday was coming up so I decided to make a batch of birthday cards. 

Supplies Used:
  • Recollections Card
  • Elmer's Glue Dot Runner
  • Elmer's Foam Mounting Circles & Squares

I gave the card above to my friend's daughter. I used my Elmer's glue dot runner to adhere the Happy Birthday card onto the base. Then I layered the hearts onto each other. I used some foam mounting circles to stick the hearts onto the card. I love how the hearts pop up.

This is my favorite card. I took the three balloons and glued them together using the glue dot runner. I used the foam dots to pop up the balloons, the cake, and the Happy Birthday To You sign. I've thought about maybe adding the recipient's name on the bottom of the card (if and when I choose to give it away), but for now it will remain as it is pictured.

I really love the Simple Stories Birthday pack. It's perfect for Project Life layouts, traditional layouts, cards, and other projects. I definitely plan to purchase another Birthday pack as well as a few other Simple Stories packs.

Until next time...
