I created a cute little springy card! Of course it has a fun pun, of course! 

I used Shamrock Cupcake Cutting Files. It's a shaped turned out so cute!

#lots of LUCK with Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons

I embrace any excuse to create St. Patrick's Day things.


This time of year, though I am also very happy to embrace snow, I do like to peer ahead into spring...even if spring leads to summer (booooooo).


I used some awesome Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files to create this little greeting (which also doubles as a door hanger). Files used: Shamrock Faces Cutting Files and Shadow Box Card 1 Cutting Files


To create the "hanger"..punch a hole using a hole punch in the top two scallops. Thread some twine of your choice through the top and tie the ends. I braided mine for some extra detail.

Here's a close up of that sweet shamrock, I have used this shamrock repeatedly, it's one of my very favorites.

Planning the Perfect Pages with SRM Stickers. ❤

There are so many inspiring, amazing planners out there. There's literally endless inspiration. I don't know who has time to design in their planners each and every day. I know I don't. That being said, I totally appreciate being able to easily add fun, colorful details to my planner. SRM Stickers has so many new and amazing stickers, creating a beautiful planner, has never been easier!

I recently created some planner pages using Little BordersPlanner Icon StickersTiny Stickers and LePen's :)
