There are so many reasons and occasions to celebrate life! 

Pretty Cute Stamps has so many ways to help you with this.


I used Hey Cupcake! Digital Stamps to create this card.

Thank you for letting me share. Have a great Wednesday! Keep checking the Pretty Cute Stamps blog for daily inspiration and don't forget about our Monthly Challenges! This month the challenge is all about celebrations! LINK UP here: August Monthly Challenge



Happy Wednesday! 

♩Good Day Sunshine! ♫

I was totally listening to The Beatles while creating this card set...can you tell?
I created a set of friendship inspired cards using a multitude of SRM Stickers products!
Here's a closer shot of each of the cards in no particular order. I love the new Burlap Ribbon, it is a perfect way to add dimension and texture to your projects.
New stamp alert! You'll see some of the new stamps in this card, but maybe used in a way you wouldn't think to do, as a subtle background instead of a big sentiment...but that's perfectly ok too!  Hint:  Just Believe
SRM has so many stickers for so many occasions, you can combine them and they work so well together, I used Thinking of You Sentiment Stickers and Wishing You Well Sentiment Stickers in the card below. 
There's a great new stamp available, Trust in the Lord and it has a bunch of great sentiments and accents that you can add to your cards, layouts, projects, bible journaling, etc! I used the tiny crosses as a background.

Let's Celebrate some Pretty Cute Stamps!

Hey Cupcake! It's Sneak Peek Week!

Good morning! It's a balmy Thursday here. It's actually flat out misery for this part Olaf girl.

I am counting down the days until Fall, and all the gloriousness that is the season that kicks off all the best parts of the year!

It is time to celebrate though! It's Sneak Peek week at Pretty Cute Stamps! All week Lisa is sharing her new designs with you and the design team is sharing inspiration along with it! This month, the designs are all about celebrations! Look forward to a Blog Hop later on in the week and even more inspiration! 

I'm sharing a card using the brand new Hey Cupcake! Digital Stamps:




I created a card using the three cupcakes you see above, and a few sentiments as well. Thank you for stopping by this morning! 


Don't forget you can still pick up the Wonky Cake file for FREE until Friday!



Pretty Cute Stamps is celebrating all week! Stay tuned for all the great things in store!

Kind to the Core

For some of us, school is looming. For some of us, school has already begun. I'm in no way endorsing the fun that is school, however, I really do look forward to the routine again. I like routine and counting on days to have some semblance of normalcy, even if they are planned down to the minute. With a freshman on the Varsity Football team and a 7th grader on the brink of "take over the world"...routine is sounding like sweet victory.

As you can see, I was inspired by school things and smiling food.  I am sharing another Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Thursday with you! I used Nerdy Apple Cutting FilesA2 Card Bases 3 Cutting FilesSchool Planner Clips Cutting Files and Scalloped Circle Cutting Files.

Thank you for letting me share with you today and I hope your Back to School expedition goes peacefully and smooth! Have a great Thursday and check back tomorrow for a great freebie!

❤ You Are My Lifesaver ❤

I will be back to smiling food puns in no time, I just needed to share this with you. I look through the stamps all the time wondering how I can incorporate them into whatever I'm doing. I have been "bible-ing" a lot...we have some sticks in the spokes right now and I am working so hard to maintain positivity through it all. I know everything will work out, it just seems like a mountain in front of me right now. I was trying hard to create something that wasn't a bible journaling entry, but I kept fighting what was in my heart, so I needed to get it out and put it down.


Pretty Cute Stamps, are in fact just that. They are cute, but they're pretty perfect for a lot of different projects. I used Lifesaver Digital Stamps and Waves Border Digital Stamps in this particular entry:





Thank you for letting me share my heart with you. It's hard sometimes to be vulnerable and put your inner self out there for all to see. Have a wonderful Wednesday and check back tomorrow over at Pretty Cute Stamps for some other amazing inspiration. 





I Pick You ❤

Stone fruits, they are the worst and the best. I love them, yet they sometimes give me hives. 
Despite being jerk fruits, I love them and continue to unnecessarily torture myself by consuming them. I'm eating delicious cherries from Traverse City (thank you awesome Auntie C) right now, as I sit typing to you...and I don't care at all if I have to take three Benadryl in an hour from now..no..I won't really take three. Disclaimer: I'm an only child, so I tend to be dramatic. 
I love stone fruits, I love smiling food. I am combining that love along with some other wonderful Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files to create a smiling food/cheesy pun card with you, because it's not Thursday without one.
