Belle: The Star of Heidi Swapp's Memory Display Stand

Happy Almost Friday!  I have been doing so much shopping lately for those crafters that do not have a Michael's store near them that I haven't had much time for creating.  However, when a very close friend's 12 year old Australian Shepherd passed away this week, I knew that I wanted to create something special for her.  I was able to get some great pictures and creating I went!  Here is the best news:  it only took me one evening to create this Memory Display Stand.  I was pretty rusty in the beginning but once I got going, the creativity starting flowing and I was loving every minute of it (you can probably even tell which ones I did first!).  I mainly used Heidi Swapp's Vintage Chic line but added some Sugar Chic and No Limits Banner Delights. I also used Color Shine here and there. 

If you have any specific questions, please feel free to comment.  If you have done a Memory Display Stand, I would love to see pictures of it.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Happy Birthday To Me Heidi Swapp Giveaway to You!

Alicia Gay was the winner of last week's giveaway! Congrats to Alicia!

Thank you so much to everyone who sent me such great birthday wishes! I had a wonderful day sleeping in as my hubby took our son to school. I then relaxed until my daughter and I spent some girl time shopping and eating lunch and shopping some more! Then we came home to enjoy homemade cake with my husband and son.  I am so blessed by my family and especially my 17 year old daughter. She knows how important birthdays are to me so she stayed up until 3 a.m. the night before cleaning, decorating the house, and baking me a cake! How many mom's of teenagers can brag about something like that?!

Enough of me and my birthday, let's talk about you and my birthday! I am giving away the Heidi Swapp products below this week to pass on the blessings I have my life! A random winner will be announced later this week! Follow me here, leave a comment here and/or follow me and comment on Instagram and/or tag a friend on Instagram at kathrynsmorrow!

Have a fabulous week and enjoy each day's blessings and thanks again for the birthday wishes!

Color Magic Tags!

Hello!  It is getting closer to Friday!  I will actually be gone this weekend on a women's retreat.  I was blessed from a good friend of mine that invited me months ago and paid for my weekend.  Although it is difficult to leave the family for even a weekend, I know it will be great for me.  I definitely need some reflection time as I have been going, going and going some more.  I will let you know how it goes!

I love making tags as mini thank you cards.  They are fairly quick to make and it is a great way to try different color combinations without committing to an entire layout.  I have surprised myself sometimes with various color schemes so I continue to create and explore and this afternoon was one of those times.

Here are five tags I created in about a 2 hour time frame (counting getting interuppted by the dogs, cat, phone, husband, etc.!).  Thanks for looking and I hope they give you some inspiration. If you have any questions, please leave me a comment or send me a picture of your tags/cards or page layouts!
