Collecting: What do you collect?

What up peeps!!? Today I am here because I wanted to share a few of my collections with you. Laugh if you must but somehow I have found myself with quite a few collections. I am going to be sharing my collections with you here on my blog and on my instagram. First up are these beauties!

I started collecting these roller stamps back in 2012 when I discovered instagram and how there was so many women who loved pretty paper as much as I did! So let me show you the madness...
Um if you read my blog you know my fav color is PINK! So naturally I needed pink holders for these beauties!

These here below do not have a home yet! As you can see in this last post all of them had homes.

What do I do with these you ask... well nothing! hahaha I'm kidding! I use these in my planners, my scrapbook layouts, my kids school projects and tags for gifts. They are tiny enough just to add that lil extra to any project. Oh wait most importantly some of these are dates stamps so those are a must!! I have one that goes back to 1967! I purchased that at an antique fair because it was my husbands birth year. These all hold a special place in my heart as this was my first collection and reminds me of falling in love with memory keeping!    

So as years have passed I am more selective as to which new roller stamps I am adding to my collection. A lot of companies are pretty much using the same phrases and let's face it this madness should stop! HA!  So yeah this is my collection. I usually remove the seasonal stamps and  they have a home with my other seasonal papers. Oh I forgot ... I did this because I wanted to see what my total was. My total is 89!
I'll be back next Wednesday with a new collection of items I would like to share. Follow along I would love to see what you collect! How many do you own!?
You can use #scrapbookersunite on the gram!
Peace, love and pretty paper!!

Sucker For Love! Papercakes digital designs turned into iron ons!

Sucker For Love!

Hey babes! Jossie here showing you how I made this super cute embellie bag. I absolutely love Papercakes digital format of Love Bites. I wanted to try something a little different with the digitals so I printed them on iron on transfer paper.

I know it sounds tricky if you have not worked with transfer paper but I promise it’s easy! Here we go!

Print you digitals on iron on transfer paper.

Gather all your supplies and cut out the images you want to use.


Once you select your image place it in the position you wish.

Make sure to read the direction sheet according to the transfer paper you buy. My transfer paper came with a sheet of wax paper that I placed over my image before I ironed it on.


Once you have ironed over your image check to see if image is sticking to your item. You don’t want to burn the image. Be sure to keep checking as you are ironing.

As you pull up the wax paper your image no longer lifts and it is now complete.

You are ready to enjoy your personalized item!

Here’s mine!

Easy peasy right! I love love the way it turned out.  Be sure to check more from Papercakes  Try it. I would love to see what you make!

#ONELITTLEWORD with Ali Edwards

Hey friends! Day 9 into the new year! How y'all feeling!? 
Are we still digging the new year new you vibe?! I hope so! 
As you read in my last post I joined Ali Edwards One Little Word, and well I'm 
beyond excited to start this journey!  I am still so excited to be starting fresh and trying to get back to basics.  I wanted to show you what I was up to yesterday... let's go!

I downloaded this 2017 freebie from Kellie and it fit perfect for my start.

I added the word I chose from New Year's Eve - BE!~

I printed out the class lesson and dove right in! 

Gathered a few of my go to supplies!

Here is my word - no going back!

I really enjoyed printing the cards on beautiful heavy presentation paper. Nothing like a good thick quality cardstock!  

I then printed out a few pictures of myself and some of my favorite items. 
I am actually hoping my great great grandkids will thumb through this in years to come and really get to know me! 

aaand that's it folks... I wanted to just tell you that this project seems really interesting!  

The best part of this class is I get to tell my own story! Thank you Ali Edwards for taking my money!
No just kidding - thank you for thinking of this concept!

Peace, love and pretty paper!

Let's set some GOALS babes!

Hey babes it's 11:09 p.m. on New Years eve night ... and I don't know if I will make it past this blog post! So Happy New Year!!! It's been a super long day here in my home!  I just wanted to say thank you to you sweet girls who pop in and read about my crafty journey!

Before the night ends I want to speak my goals into existence here on my little ol' piece of the world wide web! Here they go....

1. Be OPEN to receive all of God's words and blessings. Without him I don't know how I made it to 43!
2. Be PRESENT in all the many activities and little moments my kids journey's take them on.
3. Be UPLIFTING to my wonderful hubby who bless him moves our family forward.
4. Be LOVING to my sweet grand baby girl. I mean isn't that what grammies do!? I am always so rushed that she is my sweet reminder that I get to just stop everything and enjoy her every little move.
5. Be ORGANIZED in my life and actually use one of my planners! :)
6. Be  HEALTHY and bring exercise back into my daily routine.
7. Be CREATIVE and nature the little girl in me who loves to make!

In doing this here I am hoping that one of these words jumps out at me as I will be participating in Ali Edwards One Little Word. It starts tomorrow and I am so excited to jump in and get back to basics. This word that you chose is a word you can reflect on all year long.

Lastly I leave you with some pictures of my day....

I did get crafty... made these t-shirts with my cameo and heat press that I promise to use more in 2017

The little girls dad will be wearing this shirt...

Shopped for a whole bunch of sweets - these girls wanted to bake tonight 

They are starting off with donuts!

and last but not least... had my daughter take pictures of me with her snap chat filters. I swear this Hello Kitty filter is going to make me download this app even though I'm too old to be on snap chat!! 

Well it's time!  I need to go fill these empty flutes with apple cider! Cheers to a happy crafty New Year!

Tell me what are some of your goals... how will you make 2017 awesome!!!??

Goodbye 2016 and Hello 2017!

Merry Everythang! 
As 2016 comes to an end I thought I would do a little recap of some of my favorite December traditions. 
First off if you have been following my blogs you know how much I love cute coffee mugs. So setting up a hot cocoa station for us to enjoy on the weekends is a must! 

I added to my cookie collection last year with lots of goodies from Pottery Barn intact my fav time to buy is the day after Christmas when all the goodies are on sale. I buy it at a dirt cheap price and box it up for the next year! Love having everything at my finger tips when we start baking. These cabinets are in my kitchen.  

Another favorite tradition is having my youngest write a letter to Santa. He is 7 and I love that he still believes! I know I have a few years so I cherish this.  

wait for it ... wait for it... Yes! DD!! Getting with my crafty girlfriends is so fun and it 
is so fun to see each others albums! 

December traditions also include making tamales! My sisters and I take turns hosting the tamale making party. This year I was up and we had a blast! 

Crismas Mimosas to start the day off!

While we wait for the tamales to cook the littles in our family make gingerbread houses.

This picture below shows my daughter with teens from her confirmation class. Every year go to Target and the teens are given a family. We split up and shop for our family in need. After we purchase gifts we head back to the church and wrap the gifts. We then box up food basket for more families in our community.  After all of our work is done we watch a Christmas movie. Us parents make hot chocolate and popcorn for the teens. This event lasts about 4 to 5 hours but its so worth it! I love watching my daughter serve our parish and give with an open heart. It's a night full of prayer and being filled with god's love.   

This one here is not really a tradition but it's my sons birthday! I love that we get to celebrate him and it's always included in my December Daily. TO BE HONEST I usually end my dd on this date :)  

Last but not least last minute Christmas shopping! We are always pressed for time but we get the job done! 

Ahhh and now a peek of my Christmas morning. The best sight... my tiny people. This picture was taken after breakfast and just before we opened presents.

After presents we rush over to my in-laws and then over to my sisters home. It's such a busy day!
This year's theme at my sisters was "pajama party".  Here's my nieces and I enjoying some tamales we made!

We also get a special visit from Santa. My grand baby was not a fan :) haha Maybe next year she will enjoy him!

As fast as December came in is as fast as it left! In fact my tree came down the day after Christmas!
I'm excited to start the new year with new hope! I am ready to receive all of God's blessing! 

Cheers to new memories and getting those pictures printed!!

Peace, love and pretty paper!
