just for you 1

Hi there! I'm so excited to be joining along for the first time with the PTI Make it Monday challenge. This week, the challenge is to stamp on a Mason (Ball) jar. When I saw this challenge, I knew immediately that I wanted to make a project combining both PTI stamps and papers from the Pion Design Siri's Kitchen collection.
I've been refinishing and painting furniture with Angie over the past few months so I have accumulated quite a collection of chalk paint from various manufacturers. I pulled out one by Martha Stewart to paint this Ball jar, allowed to dry then stamped and heat embossed little flowers from PTI Beautiful Blooms.
I topped off with a crocheted doily and tag that was made using fun papers from the latest Pion Design Siri's Kitchen collection along with many PTI dies and stamps from PTI Friendship Jar.
 I also made a coordinating card featuring the fun label from the Pion Design Siri's Kitchen collection:
 The tag was stamped stamped with a sentiment from PTI:
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you have a great day / evening!
Be Sweet ;)

Hi there! I hope you are enjoying the weekend! Today I have a layout to share that I created just for fun featuring a trio of photos of my sweet husband Scott and I on our wedding day over 10 years ago already! Time sure does fly doesn't it?
 Here are some closeups:
I combined pretty 7 Dots Studio patterned papers with fun stencils and stamps that were designed by my ever so talented blogging friend Kasia:
 I embellished with a trio of die cut Fancy Butterflies:

For the title, I used fun PTI stamps and dies:
 For theme inspiration, I joined along with the 7 Dots Studio challenge where the theme is "A New Beginning" ~ (I think wedding photos covers this one ;)
 For color inspiration, I joined along with color throwdown color challenge and for sketch inspiration, I joined along with Stuck?!Sketches sketch challenge:

Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Be Sweet ;)

Peace...PTI Blog Hop 30

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, September 25, 2014 @ 1:39 PM | ,

Hi there! It's been a few years since I joined along with the PTI blog hop! I recently rearranged my crafting supplies and came across my stash of PTI stamps and dies. It was like Christmas morning!!! I showed them some love and made this card:
For color inspiration, I referred to the color inspiration recipe shown below. (I don't own PTI autumn rose as of yet so I had to go with PTI Raspberry Fizz).
I combined a few PTI stamps with various dies including a beautiful PTI snowflake. I was pleasantly surprised that the Enchanted Evening ink pad was still good as new even though I haven't used it for quite a long time!
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the Fusion sketch challenge:
Thanks so much for visiting!
Be Sweet ;)
