Ep.#571 ~ Adhering Sticker Images to Cling Mount Stamps

Hi Crafty Friends,
Are you ready for the weekend? I sure am and we just came home from taking our daughter to the airport as she departed for a trip to Europe! We are very excited for her and I can't wait to get cracking on making a photo album for her so she can just drop her favorite pictures in it when she gets home. Her 21st Birthday is in July and we will be celebrating when she get back.
Do you have trouble getting your stamps with the sticker on it to adhere to your clear block? Well, I thought I would share with you guys how I get great adhesion using  our Mono Mutli Glue on top of the image sticker.

The glue dries pretty quickly, usually within 10 minutes or so, it really does the trick!

Happy Father's Day Weekend ~

Hi there Happy Stampers,
I hope 🤞 you are all celebrating the special men in your lives! 
Today Bob and I are heading to a fun day at the Galena Balloon 🎈 Festival, it's going to be so fun. Tomorrow will be family day spent with the kids and four-legged babies.
Here are the cards I made for daddy-o and I hope they inspire you to make some of your own.
This is the over view of all four -
I've got a YouTube tutorial on how to make the one in the photo above, make sure to check it out here on yesterday's post or on my "galecrafts" YouTube channel.
I busted out the Memories and More / Color Theory kit for this quick and easy card.
I took this card design right from the Annual Idea Book and Catalog!
Happy Hugs,

Ep.#569 ~ *4TH OF JULY* HOME TOUR 2017!

Hi there Everyone,
I hope you all are enjoying the start of your summer so far, we have been super busy and enjoyed hosting a fabulous Graduation Party for our youngest son recently!
As many of you know, I LOVE to decorate for all the holidays but the 4th of July is one of my favorites. You see all the fun decorations and the 4th of July tree I made two years ago for our front hall. It sparkles and shines and I giggle when I see cars and passerbyers stop to look in through the windows to see what the tree is all about. I am certain they must think it's a christmas tree, lol!
I hope you enjoy the town and get some inspiration and make your home fun and festive.

Happy Hugs,

OMGoodness - I am super excited for this pretty and preppy Planner Kit - yippee! I have been wanting to give the Planner thing a try and now I can because I love the prettiness of this kit, but even better to me is that the days of the week are in a horizontal configuration.

I am thrilled that Stampin' Up! has jumped on this really fun trend, I have always been a plain Jane daily calendar girl, but now I can be fun and fancy!

Happy 😊 Place Re-Organization Done ✅

Hi there Happy Stampers,
All it takes to whip your house into shape is to throw a party! Yep - that's what finally pushed me to tackle the much needed organizing re-do that my craft area was in much of...

I hit my local Hobby Lobby and purchased some plain pink boxes and scrubby took down my old shelves and replaced thecthem much larger ones.

I have much more room now and useful space taking advantage of the only available wall space to work with.

I am very blessed to have this designated space all to myself. I love it and hope it inspires you to get creative with your space no matter how big or small and make it your own.
