A Big Thank You & A Few Projects

Before I share my kit layouts I just wanted to let you all know that my weekend bake Sale for Taffety, my little baking business, was a big success! A sincere thank you to The Paperie for hosting me and a big thank you to everyone who showed up to buy goodies! I hope that you enjoyed them! I also have to thank M for coming along and giving me a hand at the table. He broke his own 'I don't go in craft stores' rule to help me out. What a great husband!

Here's a quick pic curtosey for Lori-thanks pal!


Speaking of  'The Paperie'- the May kit goes live this week and man is it awesome!

It's filled with some Jillibean Soup goodness, mixed with a little Studio Calico, Freckled Fawn & a bunch of other yummies.

Today I'm sharing a few of my projects here on the blog but you might want to get into 'The Paperie' to pick up a kit if you aren't a regular subscriber! They have a limited amount but you won't want to miss it this month!

This one speaks for itself I think. Just read that title.


I made that pinwheel last weekend during the retreat for my square punch demo. It's actually really easy. Just punch four square and cut them down the middle. Then round one of the corners and place them in the pattern you see above-there's no better way to explain that. It's takes a little fiddling but it' not that hard.


If you haven't guessed-or you aren't a regular visitor-that's Liam that M is holding. For now, Liam is all the 'child' we need. We can give him back when disaster strikes! Eugene is enough work!

For this layout I was going for a circle theme.


 I love buttons. That's no shock for anyone who knows me. I wanted to try something different here so I used an old circle stamp set to stamp little circles for each of the buttons as they lead the eye across the page. I also used the accucut system to create the 'boy' in the title.


I really wanted to send out 'It's a boy!' cards when we brought Eugene home but M thought that was a little overkill. Party pooper.

I'll be back tomorrow with some more projects!

Happy Monday!



  1. Great pages! Love how you set off the buttons with the stamped circles!

  2. Glad your business was a success :) Loved your LO's the first is too cute and I love how you made the title big. I really love the buttons with the second LO!

  3. Adorable! I especially love the 2nd one with the circles. And those treats all look yummy!

  4. Oh that is hilarious....if you sent those out no one would continually ask you when you are having a family. I love the layouts!

  5. I am a fellow button enthusiast, I love the second LO those circles are fantastic!
