Ep #633 ~ Happy Tails | Dog Sympathy Card

Hi there Crafty Friends,
Today I am using the super cute stamp set Happy Tails to create a Sympathy Card for a dear friend who recently lost her precious dog... It's so heartbreaking to lose our furry family members and I hope she knows how sorry I am for her and her family .
This stamp set has a matching punch which makes this card come together really quickly and easily! 
I've got a fun idea for a home decor project using this set so I will be sharing in the near future, keep your eye out for that video.
Also - if you haven't joined yet, make sure you "Like" and "Follow" The Happy Stamper on Facebook and join in on the Facebook Live's that I do and I demonstrate different projects from the one's I share on my YouTube Channel. It's lots of fun and everyone is super friendly, last week two of the ladies discovered they were both from Texas and are planning on getting together for a crafting day - I love that!!!

                        



Happy Hugs,

Personalized Gift 🎁 Set ~

Happy Fri-YAY Crafty Friends,
It’s the weekend - yippee!!! I have had our youngest son’s best friend from New Jersey visiting with us this week so my house has been rambunctious! The boys have been having a great time hanging out together ...
They both are flying back to New Jersey tomorrow morning so Zack can spend a week out there with Brandon and visit all his old friends.
That being said, I made a cute Gift Set for Brandon’s sweet mother as a Hostess Gift and heartfelt thank you for having him.

His mom Lisa has her own candy business and makes the BEST handmade toffee on the planet!She runs this from home in addition to working full time as a Pharmacutical Rep. I thought it would make her desk pretty when she is working hard to take all those orders.

        


                                          

I used some retired Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper and gold doilies. This is a cute mini notepad holder and pen set.

       

I personalized a inexpensive hardcover notebook and made a matching clippie with some retiredribbon as well and it matched the ribbon on the notebook 📓!


Lastly I made a matching Thank You Card using the same DSP, ribbon and doilie...
I hope she likes this set and it makes her time spent working at her desk a little happier.

Have a relaxing weekend,

Happy 😃 Sunday ~

Hi there Crafty Friends,
Well this week has flown by and we spent yesterday out on our boat with sweet friends and had a GREAT time together.
Today I am staying cool by creating in my craft room and I am doing some bible journaling entries. I am working through the Illustrated Faith Minthly Devotional Kit Simmer Revival Camp 2019. These are such wonderful kits and the content is so perfect ~ 
          https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1eNZQXTta9CDOIEqjZB6D-GTxZhm4YVEn

Aren’t the illustrations just adorable? 
I wanted to jazz up my tab clippie so I used the fabric that was wrapped around the packaging the kit came in. To take it up a notch I stamped little airplanes ✈️ using the stamp set and I love how it turned out...

Bible Journaling Bag & Entry ~

Greetings Crafty Friends,
We were camping earlier this week in the Wisconsin Dells and of course I packed my bible journaling bag.
However, my bag isn’t as cute and organized as some of the YouTubers I’ve seen ...
Oh well, it’s my journey and my time with God. 
       https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1p_YTgEI1Qx_UaIX6vBGYVMulMpkEYQih
Perhaps I could have packed a little less ~ 
       https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1uwZwZSsBHp6qjqYGfOaPAQyJzufysznN
Aside from my hot mess of a bag I did enjoy starting the new Illustrated Faith New Testament Revival Camp Kit. 
Here’s my entry and I am anxious to continue diving in to all the great content ... 
        https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1-BXVfgB5KWaTKGfqTmPSaZZuWibR9OMC
Have a great weekend and stay cool in this extreme heat, good time to stay indoors and create some bible entries!

Happy Hugs,

There is nothing better for me than turning off all the electronics, getting out in nature and relaxing on the water with my family - I love it! 
       https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1BnSqYMjw7Qt5CMdG_x2u2JdKLykDs7w5
