Card making...

I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving--I truly did. I'm so grateful this year for so many things in my life. The older I get the more I realize how blessed I am and that none of these worldly possessions mean much to me without the ones I love and the Gospel I hold so dear!

I also got the chance to make some cards this past week! Yay! It was fun just to sit and create! Here's some fun ones:

Have you been busy lately creating anything fun?

Have a great night!

November Garden Digest

It's the November Garden Digest with the TwoPeas Garden girls! Hope you are having fun hopping along and getting some peeks at really fun projects!

Here's my latest project from the garden-- its my food and drink themed layout called  Mom and Logan. Read more about it and the products I used here.

The amazing Amy Heller has come out with a jaw dropping workshop. I've been drooling over the little sneak peeks she's been giving away! You have to see what it is all about!  Here's some info:

Tis the season to create your holiday mini albums!  In Seasonal Storytelling with Amy Heller, you are given not only inspiration for documenting your special holiday memories, but ideas for EVERY season of the year.  This workshop will jumpstart your creativity all year long as you work through the four inspiration-packed chapters that include:

* EIGHT mini album samples with nearly 200 pages total of inspiration.  You'll see four albums created by Amy and four mini books by special guests Kristina Nicolai-White, Jill Sprott, Suzanne Sergi and Jana Werner.

* Four album approaches.  Amy gives you the tools to assess what format is best for you.

* Over 80 minutes of video giving a close-up look at Amy's albums as well as in-depth tutorials.

* Five printable chapter guides featuring a detailed look at each album, extra tips, "Bucket lists" of topics, and notes from the designer.

* Exclusive printable journaling cards used as the base of one of the featured albums.

* A private message board forum where you can chat with Amy, ask questions and connect with other students.

Seasonal Storytelling is Amy Heller's second workshop at Two Peas.  Her first and wildly successful workshop, Through the Kaleidescope, was given perfect ratings from her students.  Here is what they had to say about Amy:

"...So much has been put into this class with the detailed videos and the PDFs. I have been referring over and over again to them. I am now looking at everything through the color wheel ;) Thank you, Amy, for putting so much into this class. If you want to take your scrapbooking to another level and use the product that you have, you will not be disappointed, take the class!" - choose2b

"Amy speaks at a pace that is easy to keep up with and her explanation of colours and techniques is really fabulous. The videos and PDFs are so professional and I know they are notes that I will constantly refer back to when I need inspiration." - HattieHen

"A great class. One of the most informative classes I have ever taken, I learned sooo much and am much more confident using colour. Thanks Amy!" - ginabaj

Cost of Class: $25 | Buy now!

For all of you doing a December Daily album--this workshop is for you! So many cool ideas!

You should have come from Becky's fabulous blog--now head on over to Wilna's lovely blog!

And how about a chance to win some free stuff?? I'm giving away a spot in Amy Heller's new class! And now I've got you all pumped up about it too huh?? Leave me a comment and I'll pick one lucky winner and announce it on Monday the 26th!

Echo Park November Blog Hop

Welcome to the Echo Park Paper Design Team Blog Hop! Today the Echo Park Paper Design Team is showcasing projects from our latest collections. Be sure to follow the blog hop list below as you hop from one blog to the next. Return to the Echo Park Paper blog at any time for the next blogger on the list in case you get lost or confused! ONE winner will be selected from each blog to receive an Echo Park Paper collection kit of their choosing. To qualify for the kit, comments will be due by midnight EST, Sunday, November 25th to qualify for the drawing. The winner will be announced on each blog Monday, November 26th  so be sure to check back to see if you've won.

I'm just totally in love with This &That Christmas collection. Really just love it. It's the perfect colors! I made a couple cards with the fun elements that go along with the patterned paper--chipboard, brads, letter stickers, stickers, journaling spots and so much more!

This second card is my favorite--not sure why. Maybe its' the fun candy cane striped ribbon! I used the Stripes patterned paper (the b side) which has the newpaper look. I adhered a journaling spot on top of that to the right of the card, then I tied some yummy ribbon around it into bows and glued some fun buttons to each. The chipboard accents go along perfectly with the collection--I added in the pendant words and also the sticker Santa with some foam adhesive.

Thanks so much for coming by my blog! Remember to leave me a comment for a chance to win a fantastic collection pack from Echo Park Paper Co.!

I'm LOVING all the craze over hexagons lately! I found these darling elongated hexagons from Studio Calico. Birthday cards are something I'm always in need of and I thought these would be perfect for men or women. I paired them up with some Hero Arts stamps and some Papertrey Ink Cardstock. You can find more details here.

Have a great night!

Halloween pics and some winners...

I hope you all had an amazing Halloween! We did--I just loved it! I was telling my husband that I hope they  have as much fun as I did when I was a kid. I just remember it being so much fun!

Logan and Landen went as BYU football players and we dressed Cooper up as a football. He loves any type of ball! He keeps pointing to himself and saying, "Ball! mama, Ball!!"  hehe So cute.
