PMS Digi Makeover Challenge #62

>> Monday, November 5, 2012

Holy cow there was a lot of participation last week in the digi challenge!  So much that I couldnt just not play this week!  I hope the winner enjoys her new digis!  It's that easy to play along, just use a digi and also our challenge for the week.  It does not need to be a paper makeup stamps digi.  I'm a little partial to them myself.  hehe.

This week's challenge is to create a thank you card.  These are the cards I reach for most in my stash so I can always use extras.  

Here I have one of the PMS fairies named Melody and a sentiment from the Everyday Thanks set (which was added to the site as a digi set just for this challenge!)


Be sure to check out the company blog for more samples from the PMS design team!

Today is a new challenge for the PMS digi makeover challenge AND a new digi release from Paper Makeup Stamps!

We have a new digi collection that is being sold as a set and a portion of proceeds will go to the Susan G Komen Foundation.

The DigiMakeover challenge for today is to THINK PINK (fitting, we know.  Michelle is a smart cookie that way when she sets up the challenges!)  All images and word art on my cards below is from the new set which you can also purchase HERE.

I am still alive...

>> Monday, October 1, 2012

Well, i haven't fallen off the face of the earth, though in terms of crafting I sure have!
PHEW is all I have to say!  I have just been SLAMMED busy with work.  I am not at all complaining!
Wedding season around here is in full force and between my bookings and the bookings of my artists on my team... well i have just stayed extremely busy.  THat and my boudoir photography has really taken off so thats definitely exciting!  Still, i miss crafting and I really need to carve out some time in my schedule for it!

Since tomorrow is the first day of National Breast Cancer Awareness month, I decided to create a card accordingly!  And since it's monday and another Digi Makeover challenge day, I used Michelle's fabulous sketch for my inspiration!

Here is my card!


I used one of the floral images from the Faith Hope Love digi set.
I typed the Hope word using one of my new favorite commercial fonts!  Keep your eyes peeled for more word art with this font in the future!

Well, i'm pooped after wedding mania this weekend and I'm just proud i squeaked a card in there, but my eyes are beyond heavy and tomorrow I have a meeting in the morning, a bridal consult and then a photoshoot in the afternoon so i better get to bed!    So glad for auto posting!  :D

PMS release in review

>> Wednesday, August 8, 2012

Yesterday there was a new digi release of word arts from Paper Makeup Stamps.  I'm pretty proud of this batch as I was trying out a new style for PMS.  They make me happy, and after all, thats all that really matters, right?!

Here is my card using one of my favorite mottos of all time!



My cards don't often have an exact destination once making them but this one definitely does.  This has been one of my BFF's since oh, the womb, and my motto from long ago.  The colors on this card are her favorite color combo as well so i'm sure she will love it.  :D  

Now as I mentioned in a previous post this week, i feel like i'm in an awful rut with card layouts.  So i did what i always do when i need a little card making inspiration... I went over to Julee's blog or the Mojo Monday challenge blog to get a better layout!  I LOOOOOOVE Julee's layouts!  I pretty much just stuck to the basics on this one.  I was going to embellish it a bit more, but quite frankly, i forgot.  Ah well!


Be sure to check out the PMS blog for other team members flabby cards today!

Jen's Sunshine, a charity stamp for my friend

>> Tuesday, July 24, 2012

Today, Paper Makeup Stamps is releasing a charity digi stamp set for one of our design team members.  Before I simply type the same post all over again, I will direct you to the PMS company blog.

Did you read it?  Jen has been such a sweet sweet team member and fan of PMS before she ever was a team member.  I was heartbroken when I learned the news of her breast cancer.  Not heart broken for myself, but heart broken for her and her family.  As she continues treatment, I know that the financial struggle must be, well, a struggle!  I really hope that you take a moment to check out the new digi stamp set.  ALL proceeds will be going directly to Jen and her family.

Here is my first card made with this set...

When I first asked Diem if she would illustrate a matching sunshine to the Jen Fairy, i didnt realize it would be the CAHUTE!  I love love love this sunshine.  it lights up my face!
I do want to give a shout out to Måns Grebäck who gave me a pretty good deal on a font bundle since there were too many of his awesome fonts for me to purchase each one separately.  You ROCK, Måns!

I printed the sunshine out on Copic XPress It cardstock and colored with Copic markers (Specifically, Y13, Y15, Y19, YR04, YR07, YR09, YR02) and then cut it out.  I layered papers from American Crafts (ones from the PMS Will to Daydream kit!) and used some ribbon by Stampin' Up.

Now please please please go leave JEN some love and buy this super fun set!

PMS Digi Makeover Challenge

>> Monday, July 23, 2012

What is YOUR favorite holiday?  Well making a card for your favorite holiday is exactly what we were challenged with for this week's Digi Makeover challenge at PMS.

I had a hard time deciding what my favorite holiday is!  haha!  I guess i just love to celebrate.  I love to decorate.  I love the excuse to wear silly socks, eat candy and cookies.  I like to act like a kid.
Birthdays, Christmas even valentine's day and halloween.  All fun!  

but then i really started to think... ok.. if i had to narrow it down to one... whats my favorite.
Then I got a little sappy, and thought about my kiddos (who are currently in another state, visiting my parents for a week) and i thought... ya know... i just really love being around family at Christmas time.
I really love the surprise and excitement over the entire christmas holiday.  not because of the gifts you get (honestly, i like to give them more than I like to get them) but just the warmth and love of Christmas.  So obviously... i need to make a christmas card.
Then i remembered a PMS stamp... it's one of my favorite movie lines of all time.
I knew exactly what to do for my card.  :D

I used the What If Christmas along with one of the images from the Framed set.
I love digis because i was able to make these work perfectly with each other!  :D

Be sure to check out the company blog for more samples BUT also make sure to come back tomorrow (I know, 2 posts in a ROW) but i have a very very special post about someone near and dear to my heart and a NEW digi set being released just for her!!!  You won't want to miss it!
