It's TODAY!!! It's TODAY!!!

Today is the 15th of the Month and I get to share with you what I have been working on for "A Walk Down Memory Lane!" I just love getting to shop for goodies in the store and play with them. And, the AWDML store is so successful, that Lisa is spending the week schlepping all the scrappy goodies to a new, bigger store!!! Congratulations, Lisa!!

This first Layout features my sweet girl at 4 months, and 6 years. She is growing so fast. So, this
Fancy Pants Kraft Kuts 2 line was perfect to showcase these photos!

And, here's my guy! We had a bunch of trees cut down this spring and, OH! the mess it made in our yard. Colby worked SO hard to help move the brush and wood. By the end of the day, he was FILTHY and Covered in Band-Aids. And, this line of paper called "Rock Star" by Daisy Bucket worked great! And, the sketch by Lucy Chesna made everything come together!
This card was made with some of my scraps left from the Daisy Bucket "Rock Star" line and a stamp by the Unity Stamp Co. And, once again, a sketch from the fabulous and talented (drum roll, please) Lucy Chesna!
Thanks so much for looking!! I already have my goodies that I am working with for the first of the month! I can't wait to share them!

Use Your Edge Punch to Plant A Garden!

My Tuesday Tip for the

No, your edge punch won't be found on an infomercial for the latest in gardening tools, but it does make a great garden for your next Layout or Card! Just cut a strip of green paper and use die cuts or stamps to create your flowers. Embellish as you see fit and VOILA, you have planted a garden that you don't even have to weed! And, who ever you send it to will enjoy it, too!

For this card, I used my Fiskars
Threading Waters Punch and some of the diecuts from the Fancy Pants Kraft line of paper. Isn't it cute?!

Now YOU try it!! We would love to see what you made! Share it with us in the AWDML Gallery!

It's July First!!!

And, I get to reveal what I have been working on for A Walk Down Memory Lane! This month's featured manufacturer is COSMO CRICKET!! And, it's has been a total blast working with their products! Their paper lines are so easy to work with and the Black Board Shapes make great accents for pages and projects!

Lisa at AWDML has put all Cosmo Cricket goodies on sale for 15% off in her store for the whole month of July, and there is also a fun contest sponsored by Cosmo Cricket. Click HERE for all the contest info!

The first page is called "Happy Campers" and it features Cosmo's Mr. Campy Line of pp and their Black Board shapes that I covered with paper! The sketch is by Julianna Michaels.
This fun sign for my son's room is another project made with Cosmo's Mr. Campy line of paper and their Black Board Shapes. This time, I painted them and they came out super cute!

This is a Layout done using Cosmo Crickets Lil' Man Line of paper. It also features the July 1st sketch at My Sketch World by Lucy Chesna!

Thanks for looking!
Be sure to check back on July 4th for a fun project and a tutorial on how to do it!
