Post 2 of 2 for me today...click HERE for Fusion Card Challenge!



Hello Neat & Tangled Fans!

Today will certainly not disappoint you!


Today we're featuring



Here...I'll spare you from rotating your view:


I know, isn't it FABulous?!

I teamed it up with Studio Calico's Brighton Pier {Thanks Lisa!}.


I heat embossed the map in gold. I stamped the fabulous sentiment in black....which I think works nicely with the:

wake up and be awesome

This is going to go to my boy as he starts the college application process.  So exciting and a smidge scary for this Momma.  I'm so thankful that my girl is going to college in state but I do have to admit that I was an emotional mess when she moved into the dorms....I can't believe what I'll be like if my boy goes out of state...specifically NY state.  That's a bit of a drive from Washington State :)  He knows that I want him to pick what's best for him and the opportunity for him to live in NY is really calling his name.

It's all good...I know that he'll:

go and do amazing things

I really crafted up a storm for this release and averaged at least 2 projects per set!  It's all so easy when everything is so over the top AWESOME to work with!

Here's a shaker card using the Origami Map:


Brownie points for using the pocket card that was in my stash.  I'm pretty sure that I received it as a rak and I've been saving it for something perfect and I'm super happy how it pops off of the kraft base.

Those sequins:



That's it for me today!

  25. This stamp set is my favourite so far and you rocked it! I absolutely love the gold embossing over the patterned paper. Have never thought to do that, brilliant idea and looks so good with those beautiful colours. And can never go past a fabulous shaker card, the stamps make the perfect background and love all those clear sequins. Amazing!!

  27. Origami map - seriously, how cool and unique is THAT? Your showcases: stellar! The shaker is a delight, but it's the one for your boy that's stolen my heart...for its beauty, but more so for its essence. He WILL do awesome things, because he has confidence, that stems from all the support and encouragement you give him. Awesome mom = awesome son. Simple math *grin*
    Hugs~c
