The Cutest Video Hop Ever!

Helllllllooooo and welcome to our stop on The Cutest Video Hop Ever!  My son and I are VERY excited and grateful to be joining Emily Leiphart for this fun hop, inspiring the next generation of crafters!  We hope you have as much fun watching us craft with our kids–or in my case, watching my son craft! Ha!

Thanks so much to our very generous sponsors who have donated over 30 prizes for this hop. Sit back and enjoy!

My only contribution to his card was stamping and diecutting all the critters for him. You’ll be able to tell, he handled all the rest (and then some) himself. He REALLY likes to chat and has SO MUCH to say. Believe it or not, I actually trimmed this WAY down. Unfortunately or fortunately, you will miss out on all the banter about restaurants, allergies, Minecraft, 2nd Grade, etc. But you will learn about Spring, Dog Man, half birthdays, bees, snails, extra teeth and so much other goodness. I do love him so! ❤

Please note: I do not make videos. For those who do, I always admire you because it take a great deal of time to do an amateur version, I can’t imagine completing a finessed version! 🙂

Here is our video ❤ :

He chose to use this super cute set from Paper Smooches called So Fairy Cute (and dies HERE)! And it is adorable, especially with the tooth. I also like how he refers to the stamp set as “his pack”. HA!!

Sending Sparkly Wishes!

Happy Friday! I hope you have had a great week–it has been an odd one for sure, as I have been off one day all week. So today is Saturday, in my book. But unfortunately, it SO is not. ha! 🙂

Today, I’m sharing this sweet Paper Smooches card!

Ok, that snail and that bee though!! And I just had to have that little snail carry the tooth. ❤ The tooth is in this set and I think it is adorable with that little face! Eeek!! I might leave this for the tooth fairy to give one day. 😉

I added some sparkle which adds some pop to this in person, but doesn’t show up stellar in photos.  🙂

Awwww so sweet!! The New Paper Smooches release is all available HERE now. Don’t miss the fun on the Paper Smooches Blog!! Kim is having giveaways! And I just peeked and there are several of my faves she’s offering up–RUN! 🙂

How adorable are they all together?! 😉

I love this mushroom and this sentiment is just the best!! I have nothing else like it! ❤

I die cut all the elements and then arranged and adhered them all down on a scored panel, creating a little scene. To finish it off, I colored the little bee with Copic Markers and die cut him out too. 🙂
