HAWT + A + Zumba

a few things to share....

"HAWT!" layout...

 used a stamp from the ali edwards story stamp set "old & new".  did i already say how much i love her story kit/stamp set?
 went for the gold look here, ranger crackle paint, small punched star using a Fiskars star punch and those lines are done with a gold sharpie marker.

and another stamp "Then|Now" from the same ali edwards story stamp set.  and currently my obsession are the new clear letter stamps from christine herrin i used for my title "HAWT!"  i love her style and recently purchased the Wander Edition Project Life Core Kit she designed.  can hardly wait to use them.  definitely planning to use it for when we travel this summer.  woot woot!

and now for a V-day card i made for one of my daughters and has already been mailed out to her....

those hearts and the "hello heart" stamp are from the ali edwards story stamp set "heart."  i embossed the hearts with pink Zing. i'm getting back into embossing now.  I have so neglected them for so long.  thank you ali edwards for the inspo!
created a border with that "hello heart" stamp...just love how it completed this card.  when i first saw the size of these tiny stamps in the set...i thought, shit, these are tiny, how am i gonna use these?  wtf!  well came up with this idea for this card and did the same on a layout i shared here.  i'll be using this technique a lot more especially with these tiny cuties.  lol.

and lastly, some cards i created as a thank you attached to Zumba prizes for a Zumba Pre-Valentine's Party i'll be teaching this coming Saturday...

 used a bunch of project life cards in colors of pink, red & white (blush edition & cherry edition, which are no longer available), stamped them, punched holes and wrapped them with twine around each prize.  it just made these goodies more special as prizes for my students.  nice cute touch. they are gonna love them.
can hardly wait to give these out and see their expressions on their faces.  this party is gonna be FUN!

on another note, i am currently doing the one little word prompt for this month.  so far i've been doing good, missed a couple of days and that's ok.  i've accepted that.  "strive for progress not perfection." loving this process.

and have been doing the 52 lists by moorea seal too.  i'm actually not doing it on a weekly basis.  i have been doing it randomly when i can.  luckily i found a journal i bought a LONG time ago.  it's a journal i could never figure out what to use for and put it away and forgot about it.  it just so happened i was looking for something to use for the 52 lists and found it on my scrap table in one of my caddies.  not sure why i never noticed it before until recently.  it now has a purpose in my life. YES!  if i remember, i'll share one or more of my lists here.  or i may not and keep it to myself.  hmmm.  stay tuned.

it's already been a busy week!  well gotta get off this and get my butt off this couch! scrapping? sweeping the floors? more laundry?  hmmm...i may multi-task.  LOL. until next time...xoxo.
