About Me

My photo
I am Sarah, a stay at home mom of two wonderful, little boys. In my life before kids I was a fifth grade teacher. I now work with first year teachers, which I love. Creating is one of the ways I stay sane. I become very cranky if I have not stamped or scrapped in a while. Join me on this creative journey.

Make It Monday #17



I am in love. Yup I have said it and it is out there for the world to hear(see). I am not in love with a who but a what....Papertrey Ink new Fruit Fusion stamp sets and dies. For $8.00 you can buy the cutest stamp set (apples, strawberries, pears, grapes and melons are your choices) and then you can get the matching die. Love I tell you! Over the weekend I got my Papertrey goodies (Fruit Fusion: berry and apple, both dies, and the Fruitti Tutti designer paper) When I saw the Make It Monday challenge which was cracked glass I knew I wanted to play. Have you ever tried this technique? I had done it years ago but definitely needed a refresher, my only caution is the image gets HOT so be careful. The second photo shows the beautiful berries after the embossing but before the cracked part. YUMMY! Really liked how the card turned out. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
