I have two projects to share with you, let's get started:



Today I'm featuring the NEW Hustle and Grind Sentiments!  It is such an awesome set of must-have sentiments.  I whipped up two different designs, the first one combines Hustle and Grind Sentiments with Hug in a Mug.  Seemed like a must-do, don't you think?


I kept the overall design clean + crisp to make so that the sentiment was the star of the show.  The latte art has been heat embossed in white.

Next up is a card that uses Hustle and Grind Sentiments the stamp set by itself.


For my this design I used my MISTI to stamp the background panel.  The center sentiment has been heat embossed in white.  

I know, tons of purple and no green today!  

That's it for me!  Next up is Renee Day!  In case you get lost along the way, here's today's complete hop listing!

I love the hustle and grind set. These sentiments are great. I'm always looking for the right thing to say to my teenage kids and these are absolutely perfect. Not too sappy yet meaningful and motivational.

Fun cards. The stamps
for the hustle card are
big enough that I should
be able to make a nice
background myself (never
happy with my endeavors).
