Hoo's Sweet Project Kit from SEI

Awhile back I got my hands on the adorable Hoo's Sweet Owl project kit from SEI and I knew that I would be using it for a shadow box for Zoey's room since she loves owls (I do too!).

It comes with all the plain chipboard pieces and you can add papers and trims as you like. I also inked some of the edges after putting my papers and trims on and added some flower stickers, buttons and bakers twine for some added fun.

I matted it on to a piece of patterned paper before putting it in my shadow box. I love how it turned out! Such an easy and fun weekend project!

Scrapbooking Fun!

I had some time over the weekend to work uninterrupted in my craft room for a bit so I printed up a whole bunch of photos on my printer and went to town creating with some of SEI's Summer Woods collection and also some of the Noteworthy collection. I added in some little bits of other collections here and there (love mixing things up!) as well. 

I had so much fun and can't wait to share my complete projects with you once they post on SEI's blog this month!

Birds of a Feather Kit for October!

Sharing a sneak of the October kit from Birds of a Feather Kit Club! I'm pretty sure that this kit was put together with me in mind...I love the color combinations, swoon! I can't wait for it to arrive on my doorstep. If everything goes as planned, I'm pretty sure it will arrive tomorrow (after checking my tracking on USPS) which would be perfect since I have  Mondays off of work, yay! 

Crossing my fingers! Go get your October kit here!

Happy World Cardmaking Day 2015 + SEI's Design Team Call!

I had some fun whipping up a quick card using SEI's Winnie's Walls collection for World Cardmaking Day! It's an older collection of theirs but still a favorite. Thought that apple print was perfect for a fall(ish) looking card. 

SEI is also holding their 2016 Design Team call! It has been AMAZING working with SEI this past year. It's truly been a breeze. Each and every box of goodies I have received in the mail has been an overwhelming surprise as I am delighted with the variety and blessed by the amount of things I get to choose from to create with. The expectations are clear and deadlines are easy to meet. I highly recommend trying out for this team as a designer. You will not be disappointed if you get the gig!! I have loved working with them every minute! 

Good luck if you choose to submit and please feel free to ask me any questions that you may have!

Weekend Exploring

Saturday was absolutely beautiful here so we took a little road trip to Presque Isle, Wisconsin for an afternoon of exploring.

We were tickled to discover a small apple orchard that was open to the public so we did a little impromptu apple picking.

There is just something about picking apples with my loves that makes my heart so very happy.

Ethan was mostly in the trees the entire time since the good apples were up higher. Zoey and I mostly caught them...but she did hike up into some of the trees too.

After our apple-picking excursion we investigated a bit more around the town of Presque Isle. It's a very cute little place with a handful of fun little unique places to investigate. Totally worth the drive for an afternoon of fun.

Before heading out of town we happened upon this sweet little church. Ethan pulled over so we could take a closer look. It looks like they have summer services there so hopefully this summer I will be able to make it to one or two. I love little churches.

And then on our way out of town we found another fun little green space/park and stopped to get out and take a closer look. There were lots of photo opportunities!


Such a gorgeous fall day! So glad we took off and headed out of town. Totally worth it!
