"It's a Girl Thing" Double 12x12 LO!!

Hello everyone!

Thanks so much for stopping in! I've been wanting to post this a couple weeks ago but I've been swamped and I can't catch up....so I'm just trying my best to get my stuff done:/

Today I wanted to share a couple of things. A retreat I went to the end of March and one of my projects that I got done while I was there!

My DT partners from Craft Warehouse got together for a 3 day weekend and did nothing but hang and scrap and ate and played!!!
It was soooo much fun!

Here's a couple shots of our cropping room inside the auditorium!
The auditorium from the outside!
GORGEOUS!! even though it rained..I LOVED it there!
We had an awesome chef for the weekend! 
Don...you were the man!!
Just one of the sweets we grubbed on!
yummm!

Here is a video Jen created of that weekend.......




So...all I can say is that I can't wait til next year! :)
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Here is my project of the double LO of Anna!
She's so beautiful inside and out!

This is the left side,




And here's the right,







I've not ever made a double 12x12.....it's different....only because I wasn't sure if I wanted it to have an identical layout for both sides or an opposite layout for both...either way, I got it done in a day and a half and I love how it turned out! All the colors went with Anna's style and personality! 

Here is my video sharing my project, I didn't record myself making it because of the setting...I didn't have my camera either. I will create tutorials as time allows too. 
If you have any questions on what I used, please message me! :)
 Thanks you guys!


Many thanks to Jen at "Create Often" (our DT leader) for setting up the whole event, Craft Warehouse, Pink Paislee, Helmar and Authentique Paper Co. and so many others who put in their hearts and time for us the weekend of the retreat!! 

Thanks friends for stopping in to take a peek! 
I appreciate your time so much:) Please leave me a comment:) Have a great day!

Simple Stories, "Documented" Projects!

Hello everyone!

I have finished up my Assignment #4 for the awesome 
Craft Warehouse!! 

We were assigned 3 collections....divided among the 12 of us.....I got the "Documented" paper collection! I won't type out a whole lot of info, since I posted the video of the entire project.

This paper line is totally up my alley! 
I LOVED every sheet in that paper collection, I do wish there was at least 2 of each page....there's only one and it makes it so hard to choose which side to use.....ugh, to sacrifice a beautiful side...
not fair, not at all! 

The other paper collections used were "Awesome" and "Fabulous"!
I have a list on the left of my blog of all the CW designers, you guys should really check them out! 
There is some serious talent over there, they always inspire me!

For a Craft Warehouse near you....Check their website!
(only in Idaho, Oregon and Washington)

Ok, here is the video share with the tutorial of how I put it together....pics to follow!! :)



This is the LO in the divided pocket protector!







12 x 12 LO of hubby and me!








My Simple Card!





I have to confess, it was seriously hard to box up my projects and mail them off to be displayed in the store..... I wanted to keep them... I know I can make another, but my heart was truly poured into these, all my projects really... I guess it's not the time I put into them, but the sentimental photos that inspired my heart and hands to create them, it's ok though I guess.... 
I do hope they inspire someone...maybe you :)
(I have these photos to look at when I'm ready to make my copy....lol :)


This has to be one of my favorite lines and companies! I'm so honored to have been able to work with this line! Thanks SS!!


 I appreciate you stopping by for a peek, TTYL!! :)
Have a great day! xo, Jules

Hello everyone!


I pray you have a WONDERFUL Easter!  There's so much that Easter means to me....from all kinds of levels! But primarily, I thank my God for the gift of His Son to the world...to me....the birth, the mission, the torture He endured in my place, the death to all equal my salvation and life!


Weather you believe in God or not,  I pray that all who read this are blessed...especially today! I do pray that you find what you're looking for, I pray you're loved unconditionally, I pray your family is safe, I pray your relationship grows stronger or gets mended, I pray for your heart to be satisfied! I pray the best for you!
