Lucky us….

Hiyeee!! 7 days, no see!! Lol. I missed you! Did you miss me? Never mind, don’t answer that.

So today, I have a layout to share with you. Do you know, I was checking this last night, and I realized that the ONLY layouts I’ve made in the last year have been the ones I’ve made for a blog post here. That makes me so sad. I still have millions of photos and double that of paper and embellishments. It’s just TIME I don’t have. And I love stamping and card making so much it tends to gobble up any creative time I do have.


Anyway. A layout. I printed a bunch of b&w photos for our family reunion this summer and this one just kept floating to the top of the pile after I cleaned up. It’s my mom and her sister taken back in the 50’s. Aren’t they so cute??


Lori knows that I’m not a real “theme paper” girl. I just don’t like to be dictated to like that. I much prefer really generic, indistinct patterns for background paper, but this Fabulous line by Authentique was impossible to deny. Those cat’s eye glasses! The 50’s motifs! And there’s one GORgeous piece of paper in the pack with roses and leaves that I’m hoarding for just a little while longer.

Also, check out that watercolor painted rose! I made that!! I recently attended my second Pinner’s Conference - two days of all kinds of classes for things you might pin on Pinterest.  Making perfect pie crust.  Painting a wooden barn quilt.  Learning to braid hair.  Calligraphy lettering.  And so on.  One of the classes I attended was painted watercolor roses and this one came from my practice sheet!


I haven’t attempted them again….I’m pretty sure that was the best water color painting day I’ll ever have in my life!


The vellum leaves are from Prima, the enamel hearts are Illustrated Faith by Bella Blvd, the pink gingham heart and “classy” stickers are from the same Fabulous paper pack as the patterned papers I’ve used here, and the puffy floral stickers are from Pink Paislee (Oh My Heart) and Pebbles.  The two green card stock leaves are ones I cut out with the Silhouette.  And the black foam title words are Thickers by Amy Tangerine.

Thanks for stopping by today!


You Da Bomb

Hi everyone!

I hope you’re doing well! Also, does anyone have any suggestions for some different greetings other than “hi” or “hello”? I just can’t seem to come up with anything more clever. Norine has some cute “hellos” though…perhaps she’ll let me borrow some of hers ;) Anyways, on to my project for today’s blog!

f26efe98-43ed-4042-9727-e254bc2e7ed1My cousin turned 25 last month and I decided to gift her a bit of a relaxation package. She started her first year of teaching this year, and as far as I know, still works partly as a health care aid. Needless to say, relaxing baths will be very much needed for the girl.nbag

I got these specific bath bombs from Pure Anada in Winkler. They also have an amazing online store, so if you haven’t yet checked it out, I’d highly recommend! At Love is in the Details, we love our fellow local stores and are fortunate to have businesses like Pure Anada close by.


Here’s a close up of the top of the little box. I used a simple gold foiled chipboard piece on the wood patterned paper, for a very simple but elegant box topper (is that a thing? Box topper?)


Here’s a photo of the bath products I chose for my cousin and the bag into which I will package the gift. It only seems fitting to say, “You da bomb”, as cliche as it may be ;)


And a close up of the bag…


Thanks for stopping by! Before you go though, I want to let you in on a little secret…we will be having a guest blogger next Sunday who is AMAZING at her craft! Can’t wait for you to see who it is and what she made!

Thanks again and I hope you have a beautiful Sunday and an amazing week!
