I Am Missing You



I'm so sad to announce that this is my last Design Team card For 7kids college fund :( The store is closing at the end of the month.  This card tells you how I feel.  I love this stamp set from Lawn Fawn it's called Loads Of Fun.  It's not fun to say good bye but it is fun to use these stamps.  I've had such a great time being on the 7kids design team and have learned a lot from the other awesome members of the team and Tabitha the owner. I'm so glad I got to know them and am glad to call them friends.
Please visit the store from now until the 31st and get some great sales as everything will be going on clearance.  Check back every day cuz the sales will constantly be changing.  

Thanks for stopping by

Goodness! Clear Acrylic Stamps by Mo Manning from Penny Black

I am sad to see 7 Kids close, because it' Tab, because it's been such a fabulous online store with a DT team that is so much fun and creative! but I know  you have so many other things to look forward to exploring or just relaxing with your family. I hope we can stay in touch and that I can still stop by for a chat whenever I visit Phoenix. With that being said I will only say see ya around and not goodbye.
Today I'm sharing a little cutie by Mo Manning from Penny Black. This is one of my favorites and just called to be done in Copic Markers.

Saying Good Bye is never easy.

It's hard to realize this is my last time posting on the store blog - what an honor to have the privilege of doing this each week. 

Saying good-bye to 7 Kids College Fund store is hard for me to do. It was the very first online store I purchased my first crafting supplies from in 2009. Not only did I find a terrific store, I found a lifelong friend, Tab, the owner. I have been very fortunate and had the honor of meeting Tab in person and have visited several times since. The first time I visited her I walked around the store totally amazed of all the crafting supplies she carried. Rooms and rows of everything imaginable. And, what amazed me the most was Tab. A caring, witty, wonderful person with a sense of humor that always makes you giggle. When she asked if I wanted to be on her DT - well, that was a no-brainer – what an honor! A year later life got hectic and I had to leave – and couldn’t wait for things to settle down so I could return. Being one of Tab’s DT’s has been an honor and a ride of joy that I hold deep within my heart. And, honestly when you see a 7 Kids package deliver to your door – you can’t wait to tear it open! Yes, I will miss the store terrible, it was my go-to store for all of my crafting needs. But I won’t be missing Tab – she’s in my life forever. Good luck Tab in all of your future endeavors!! xoxox

There's Only One You


Happy Friday everyone!  I'm here to share a card with you today.  I used the awesome Santoro Gorjuss 6X6 Paper Pack by Docrafts. 
The paper pack includes images that are already colored and different frames along with the sheets of paper so making a card is quite simple to do.  If you are ever in a pinch to make a card and you love Gorjuss girls then I would definitely recommend this paper pack.  It's the best!!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend :)

Neat and Tangled have arrived

Hello friends!  I'm just sharing a card I created using the new Neat & Tangled stamps from 7 Kids College Fund.  They have been on pre-order and have arrived!!!!  **WOOT**

This Neat & Tangled set is called Big Bold Brew.  I also used the matching dies for this stamp set, they are Big Bold Brew nice and neat dies.  First off let me tell you, these inked to perfection with NO prep!!!  I was AMAZED.... secondy, do you see the coffee cup handle?  The attention to detail cutting that piece out stole my heart, I have an issue with a big blog of white on an image, whether fussy cutting or a die.  I have to become one with my Exacto blades to remove things like this, but this die already did it.... LOVE!!!!! 

I stamped with Memento Jet Black onto Copic paper and colored it with my Copic markers.  Some Bo Bunny Valentines paper just seemed to fit right in, being a "masculine" card it is hard with all my girly papers LOL  I added a doily and some heart bling, gel pen and the wink pen!!!  DONE!

Hello Friend! ~ Kelli

Hello friends, today is my turn to share some AWESOME goodies from the 7 kids store!!!!!

I created a beautiful card using a Kraftin Kimmie Sentiment from the Becky's Beautiful Sentiment collection.

This one is Sweet Summer Sentiments.

**NOTE** I stamped the sentiment in versamark and heat set white embossing powder FIRST!!!! I made my background by wetting water color paper, then dropping reinkers onto the paper.  I then sprinkled ground sea salt and let that absorb some ink and dry.  Once dried simply wipe off the dried sand.  I applied ribbon and a sea shell "sticker".


Thank you for stopping by!
