Happy Little Stampers ATC June Challenge

Hello everyone!

I am back today to share an adorable ATC for this months challenge at Happy Little Stampers.

For anyone who isn't familiar with ATC cards, they are mini works of art that measure 2.5" x 3.5" and are traded around the world. Usually they are numbered and signed on the back by the artist.

This month's theme is Christmas. How fitting that I have a whole line of die cuts with Santa hats over at PrettyPaperPieces4U! So of course I had to use one of them that we currently sell in our Etsy Shop

I cut out a beautiful piece of paper from Snow Day by Lawn Fawn. I have linked where you can pick up this beautiful pack because it is perfect for all of your Christmas themed cards and projects.

Once I chose my paper, I went to the stash of die cuts from our Etsy shop and I chose Polly the Penguin with the Santa hat because it seemed most fitting!

Once I had those two chosen I looked through my mom's, Lisa, stash of dies to find the perfect decoration to finish off the card

I chose snowflakes from the Snowflake Kisses set by Kat Scrappiness.  I die cut the snowflake and the center piece that came out was used to accent the hat on Polly the Penguin.

Here is my finished ATC:




This card was so much fun to make!

I hope you'll play along with us this month and enter the ATC challenge at Happy Little Stampers

Thanks for stopping by!

Go Wild. Amazing. End of Story.

Last month was the conclusion of the 4th year of Go Wild. 

For those of you who don't know Go Wild is an amazing event put on by the admins of Planners Gone Wild on Facebook. 

Go Wild began in Nashville 4 years ago and has since traveled to New Orleans, Texas and now this year...Vegas. 

Last year was my very first year. I wrote a blog post afterwards because I needed to express how amazing and life changing this event is. 

Everyone asks me, well what is your conference for?

The simple answer is that it's a planner conference but it is so much more than that. So much more!

Go Wild is an event like no other. You get to connect and hear from amazing other women in this community. There are people that come from all over just to attend Go Wild. In my opinion GW is life changing. 

This is now my second year being able to attend and exactly like I said last year, I don't plan on missing any more of these.

Last year I left this conference so happy and uplifted and I am leaving this year feeling that way times 1000. I have made so many new friends, connected with old friends, laughed, danced, smiled and was unapologetically me. 

Now this phrase "unapologetically me" has been in my mind this entire weekend. Last year I was worried about so many things and this year none of that mattered. I was me. I didn't have to do or change anything about me. I got to be me. I was unapologetically me!

This phrase entered my mind as I entered Planjama. I went out on the dance floor and I danced my butt off. I danced with 1400 of my closest llama friends and I had the time of my life. I didn't care what I looked like or who was watching, I was having fun. And that is what Go Wild is all about. Fun. Connections. Being you. Being unapologetically you!

I had the pleasure of meeting so many amazing and talented women this weekend. I got to connect with women in person that I have been friends with online for the past 5-6 years. Go Wild allows you to do things you would have never dream of before. 

I said it once and I'll say it again....Go Wild is life changing. End of story!

Paper Sweeties Plan Your Life Series- June 2019!

Hello again everyone!

Today I am back to share a planner spread with you featuring Paper Sweeties Planner Series and their amazing stamp sets!

First I used the words "blog post" from the stamp set Get Your Craft On. I also used the stamp "Craft Day" from this set.

The next two stamp sets I used were Everyday Basics and Vacation to stamp out the words "breakfast" and "vacation."

Once I had the Vacation set out I stamped out a palm tree to mark a planner meet up that I am hosting. That palm tree just looks so perfect! I also stamped a sun from the same set and colored it in with Zig Markers.

After that I stamped in the doggie and paw print from Appointments. I absolutely adore this little doggie!

I did stamp out the word "birthday" on stickers and hand wrote the word "Grandma's." This stamp comes from the set Celebrate.

I stamped the words "to do" on the sidebar to mark all the tasks that need to be accomplished in the month of June. This phrase comes from Winter Sentiments.

Last but certainly not least, I stamped the beautiful butterfly from a set called Bee Happy and then I colored it in again with Zig Markers.

All of the Planner Series stamp sets go great with one another. I love being able to use all of the sets each month!

Here is a look at my monthly spread using all different stamp sets from Paper Sweeties:


I am currently using the Erin Condren (affiliate link) Life Planner. It has the perfect amount of space each month for everything that I need to track and plan out.

The monthly kit that I used for this month is from Planning Made Easy. I absolutely love the summer-y feel and I am so happy that summer is here.

I hope you will check out all of the stamp sets from the Planner Series at Paper Sweeties! These stamp sets really make planning out my activities easy and fun!

Thanks for stopping by! Please make sure to head on over to my fabulous team and check out all of their posts for today!

Happy Little Stampers ATC May Challenge

Hello everyone!

I am back today to share an adorable ATC for this months challenge at Happy Little Stampers.

For anyone who isn't familiar with ATC cards, they are mini works of art that measure 2.5" x 3.5" and are traded around the world. Usually they are numbered and signed on the back by the artist.

This month's theme is Hello. 

I cut out a beautiful piece of paper from Lili of the Valley.

Once I had that chosen I looked through my mom's, Lisa, stash of dies to find the perfect sentiment for this month's theme.

I chose one from Paper Sweeties called Sweets Cut Hello. I die cut the word "hello" in gold foil cardstock and then adhered it to the top of the card.

Here is my finished ATC:


This card was so much fun to make and I just love the look of the gold on the floral background!

I hope you'll play along with us this month and enter the ATC challenge at Happy Little Stampers

Paper Sweeties Plan Your Life Series- May 2019!

Hello again everyone!

Today I am back to share a planner spread with you featuring Paper Sweeties Planner Series and their amazing stamp sets!

First I used the words "blog post" from the stamp set Get Your Craft On.

The next two stamp sets I used were Everyday Basics and Winter Sentiments. Everyday Basics was released in November and it is the perfect stamp set for all types of planner spreads.

I used the stamp "work" from Everyday Basics and stamped it out on each day.

I also combined two different stamp sets. I used the stamp "Day" from Celebrate and the stamp "Off" from Everyday Basics.

I then stamped in the airplane from the set Vacation on May 1st and 6th. I attempted to color in the airplane but unfortunately did not like the way it turned out. I then stamped the airplane on a separate piece of paper and sent it through my Scan N Cut and had it cut it out. I then taped the airplane in over the mess I had made. Can't even tell...hopefully๐Ÿ˜‚

All of the Planner Series stamp sets go great with one another. I love being able to use all of the sets each month!

I used a Go Wild kit from Krissyanne Designs to decorate around the month. I also added in washi tape from Go Wild last year and I think it's a great way to show the length of my trip.

I am so excited that I am able to attend Go Wild again this year! Please let me know if you will be there and make sure to say hi!

Here is a look at my monthly spread using all different stamp sets from Paper Sweeties:

Happy Little Stampers ATC April Challenge

Hello everyone!

I am back today to share an adorable ATC for this months challenge at Happy Little Stampers.

For anyone who isn't familiar with ATC cards, they are mini works of art that measure 2.5" x 3.5" and are traded around the world. Usually they are numbered and signed on the back by the artist.

This month's theme is Pretty Papers. How fitting that my name is PrettyPaperPieces4U! So of course I had to use one of the die cuts that we currently sell in our Etsy Shop

I cut out a beautiful piece of paper from Spring Fling by Lawn Fawn. I have linked where you can pick up this beautiful pack because it is perfect for all of your Spring themed cards and projects.

Once I chose my paper, I went to the stash of die cuts from our Etsy shop and I chose the doggy because as most of you know I am a huge dog lover! So of course the dog was my first choice.

Once I had those two chosen I looked through my mom's, Lisa, stash of dies to find the perfect sentiment to finish off the ATC card.

I chose one from Paper Sweeties called Sweets Cut Wish. I die cut the word "love" in black cardstock and then adhered it to the top of the card.

Here is my finished ATC:



This card was so much fun to make and also because I am a huge dog lover. There is a picture of my dog and two cats on the sidebar of my blog if you want to check it out!

I hope you'll play along with us this month and enter the ATC challenge at Happy Little Stampers
