Team member #6

Last but not least is a designer you are familiar with. My blogging BFF who has been the most help over the last few months. Helping me throughout my large learning curve in blogland. Always having a listening ear to my woes....I just love what she creates with her cricut and i can tell you she has the best ways to use up all your little scraps. She even has her wedding coming up and she still agreed to come back, now that's a friend. Check out her personal blog if you missed any of her fabulous creations and leave some love. A huge warm welcome back to:


I’m back!!! I am so excited to be back for a second term on this fabulous design team. I just love playing with the Justwordz Everyday Sentiments stamp sets and was thrilled when Kim said she was designing two more sets! I can’t wait to ink them up! In case you don’t already know me my name is Tara and I live in beautiful Nova Scotia, Canada. I am a substitute teacher, a private tutor and a crafter for as long as I can remember. I was always the kid on the block covered in glitter! I started scrapbooking when I was a teenager working at a summer camp but the obsession didn’t really take hold until I got my Cricut a couple years ago! I have also over the last year started working with digital stamps and well…another obsession has developed lol. Over the last couple of years I have not been doing a lot of scrapbooking and mostly card making. The only problem now is I hate to give all my creations away lol. Stop by and visit my blog I would love to hear from you and check out yours too! Thanks Kim for another round!

Here is just a few of her recent creations..

Thank you all for dropping in and saying hi in welcoming my new team. We will have a fantastic time creating inspiration for you all each Friday. I hope you visit soon as we will be having a kick off blog hop on the 4th of November. Great prizes to be had and fun creations to see. You won't want to miss it. Take care all!!!

Here we are again to announce another fabulous creative lady. I recently met her at Kimmie's Kraft Day a couple weeks ago...I was amazed at how she can put a card together. And boy oh boy can she work the pearl pen like no one I've seen before. Her style is perfect to showcase some digital stamps and my sentiments. Visit her personal blog to see what i mean. Leave some love and give a big welcome to:


My name is Samantha and I live in Ontario, Canada with my ever-supportive husband of 7 years and our kitty, 'Domi' (named after my hubs fave winger, Tie Domi). I am an education administrative assistant by day, a card maker by night!
I started card making 5 years ago, simply by mistake! My husband needed a card for one of his co-workers and I just thought it would be so neat to create my own... and that's when I became hooked and have not looked back since!
You can find me and my projects at Hooliewood Creations.

I adore the shabby-chic vintage look (unfortunately I cannot seem to create that look despite trying!) and simple and elegant designs. I love to use bling, paper-piecing and using digi or acrylic/rubber stamps in my projects.
I also enjoy watching crafty videos to learn new and different techniques. Some crafty tools I cannot live without: Liquid pearls, Cuttlebug, Stamps, Copic blending paper and my Copic markers!

I am thrilled to be a part of the Design Team and am looking forward to seeing all the fabulous creations this term!

Here are just a few of her fabulous designs...

Thanks for dropping by and you will meet our last member tomorrow...have a great day.

Inking up my new Kimmie stamps!!!

Hey all, i finally felt good enough to finally ink up a stamp. This is my newest purchase that i got at Kimmies Kraft Day not too long ago. And are you impressed i paper pieced as well which i learned during that day too. I didn't put a sentiment on this one as i can use it for a variety of occasions. Colored with promarkers, added some die cuts and viola....all done using a simple easy sketch supplied by one of kimmies girls...Pam. Hope you like.

Challenges I'm entering are:

Thanks for dropping by...check in tomorrow for the intro of our last team member...

Team Member #4

I'm back again to share with you another member of JUSTWORDZ Design Team. This very talented lady caught my eye on blogland and was thrilled she wanted to be a part of this team. I'm super excited to see what she can create with Sheryl's digis and my sentiment stamps. Please visit her personal blog to see some great creations, her easel cards are to die for...leave her some love and give a big welcome to..


About me: Hello, My name is Leah Ann and I live in Indiana. I am married to my wonderful husband Don and between the two of us we have 5 children, and 12 grandchildren. Our grand babies range from ages 2 to 16. I'm a country girl, although I live in town now. I love animals, and have had every farm animal you can possible think of! My hubby is a retired Firefighter/Paramedic and I am retired as a Stay At Home Mom.
I'm known as The Hoosier Stamper to most. I have been crafting since I was 9 years old. My favorite craft of course is Stamping. I started stamping about 7 years ago, and I'm now addicted! I taught stamping classes at a little shop for a while and it was so much fun. Over the years I have done several craft shows at our local schools. I made country bunnies, oh! that tells my age :O) and many different hand sewn items. I love to crochet doilies and afghans, and I've made many dolls over the years.
I love making Easel cards, and I enjoy making them the most right now. I also love stamping on candles. Most images I use are cute images. I love angels, Native American Indian/Southwest, and also Asian. Of course there are many others I like too, it would take all day to name them.
I am here to help in anyway I can, and to learn from all of you! Hugs! Leah Ann

Another fantastically creative lady you are about to meet. She sure can embellish the most beautiful cards I've seen. Traditionally she doesn't color or even use a cricut but man oh man can she put together the most elegant cards... Check out her personal blog for some great inspiration and leave her some love. I am bursting with excitement to see what she can make with my sentiment stamps...A big warm welcome to:


Hi guys! My name is Kristin and I live in the Chicagoland area of the US. I have been paper crafting for 3 years and absolutely love it! I mainly create cards, altered items and can be found in my craft studio every day of the week. It’s my favorite room of the house. I am the only girl in my household. Even the pets are male! So my studio allows me a place for pink, lace, pearls, and all things girlie. I am looking forward to being on this Design Team and hopefully supplying you with lots of inspiration!

Here are a few of her projects.

Super lovely eh? I think she will do wonders with my stamp sets....Thanks for dropping by and we have another girl to introduce you to tomorrow, so please drop in again.

Team Member 2

I'm back again to introduce you to Design Team Member 2... This wonderful lady has applied once before and it was a shame i had to pass her up but this time around i snagged her right away. Thanks Heather for giving me another chance to see your wonderful creativity...I just love what she does with her cricut cuts. Check out her personal blog for more fabulous inspiration and leave her some love...Please give a warm welcome to:


Hi, my name is Heather and let me first say that I am honoured to be part of the Justwordz design team. I live in Ontario, Canada. I am married for 9 years to my best friend. I have one son and in May I became a mother-in-law as well. I began scrap booking about 10 years ago now when I wanted to do our wedding album. I was hooked from the start and a small case of supplies soon grew into an entire room in our apartment which has the nickname “My Pink Castle” where I spend a lot of my free time. I discovered card making and the blog world almost 2 years ago now. My latest obsession is Copic markers and most evenings you will find me colouring up a storm. Besides paper crafting I also knit, crochet and love to read. I am looking forward to working with my new design team and sharing Kimberly’s stamps with you all.

Here is a few of her designs that i snagged from her blog...

I'm so excited to see what she has in store for us over the next few months.

Don't forget to drop in again tomorrow and you will meet another fabulous girl...

Sweet Baby Girl!!!

Welcome we are again, i just thought i would sneak in a cute card i made totally inspired by my grand baby. She's was just turning one when this pictures was taken and while grandma and grandpa was watching her this is what she was doing...Now who knows of a baby doing the downward dog at one year old...So i just had to take some photos, as I'm known for the camera queen when it comes to taking pictures of this little one. On a average visit i usually get 250-350 pics...can't have too many, and she moves so fast that some are blurry as i don't use a flash cause it might make her go crazy...So we had a grand time watching until she lost her hold and banged her head into the floor...boy did i feel bad about i was so busy taking pics i wasn't there to catch her, but we cuddled and made all is good in the baby world.

My inspired card, image by Creative mind of Sylvie, colored with promarkers, used JUSTWORDZ everyday sentiments stamp set, some wicked twine and a butterfly i purchased at a local dollar store. For the grass i ripped the paper and manually cut with my scissors. Hope you like as i just couldn't resist using this image as i thought of baby Avery right away ...

Thanks for dropping by and check in tomorrow to meet a new Team Member..

Another commission card. Italian all the way...

Well gang, glad you dropped by. Here i have another commission card i made for the same girl at work...she's keeping me in business all right. This was going to a friend who is Italian and i thought why not make it all in Italian...Wasn't too bad, but there are some words in Italian that mean many different things. I hope she got it...thank goodness for google. Of course the top sentiment says, one tequila, two tequila, three tequila floor. Along the bottom of the card i put happy birthday and many wishes, on the inside i put enjoy your birthday. Image is from bugaboo and was colored with promarkers, did a little embossing and colored some white flowers to match my paper. Had fun making this one. Thanks for dropping by and come back on Monday to meet a new design team member. Love reading your comments, and i appreciate the time you take to leave one.

JUSTWORDZ Family Day....Goodbye;0)

JUSTWORDZ Family day!

Hi Gang, welcome to JUSTWORDZ. It's with a heavy heart that i have to say this is our last posting with the current Design Team. Over the last few months we have come up with over 95 sentiments using just one set of my stamps, everyday sentiments. WOW, that's allot of sentiments, have you ever seen a set of stamps that gives you that much versatility? Many thanks from the bottom of my heart to you ladies who helped me kick off my new line of stamps in the most wonderful way. I couldn't have done it without you. I appreciate all the support and effort you put into showcasing these stamps and giving our followers great inspiration with your fantastic designs. I had such fun this past term and look forward to another term with some talented ladies. I'll be announcing the new team next week, so you will all have a chance to welcome them. Let's visit once again my design team members who have become my fast friends. I'll miss you all and i hope we can keep in touch...






Well not too much going on with this card as I'm still suffering from massive tooth pain. I've been to the dentist three times, two prescriptions later I'm still hurting bad. All from a routine replacement of a filling. I should have left it alone. Going to Toronto to see a specialist next week. BOY oh BOY i almost want to pull out all my teeth at this point. What pain us women can endure eh??? But enough whining.

This card is a shout out to all my DT, and as it's family week i feel they have become a part of mine. So ladies thank you so much and i hope you enjoy the card i created with you in mind. Image is Krista Smiths, colored with promarkers. JUSTWORDZ everyday sentiment stamp set was used and i added a little bling and used a die cut for the butterfly. I like how these colors work together. I also added the dots in matching colors around image for a different look.

Thanks for dropping by and leaving love for all the designers. Please come again for our upcoming BLOG HOP in early November to showcase my two new stamp sets. We will have prizes and you will be able to participate in our first challenge.

New Team members will be introduced next week. Please Stay Tuned...

Kimmie's Day's Events and PIC'S


Now on to my fantastic day in London, Ontario yesterday. I just got home at 5pm today after a little stop at a apple orchard and of course Costco...3 Christmas presents bought..yeah, first ones of the year for me.

Picture of me and Kim, man oh man i look brutal. All that tooth pain is taking it's tole, the dentist better get me in tomorrow as I've never felt pain like this before. His medication is NOT working...BUT i still had a fabulous time with Kim and her DT gang. Kim was super fun and had many surprises for us. We all got some awesome swag (goodies), a chance to win some original art from Annie Rodrigue that she created right on the spot, and some great card creations from her team...all proceeds from the raffle went to charity. Well i didn't win any of that, but i won something so super crazy i still can't stop thinking about it...WAY WAY COOL!. I'll let Kim share that with you all.

Here is me and Melanie...super fabulous girl and so sharing of all her wonderful talents. I noticed her at tables giving tips to any who asked, what an amazing girl. Check her blog, her coloring is out of this world....
I wish i had more pictures but Kim's team keep us so busy i didn't have much time to mingle and chat to other crafters or to pick Kim's girls brains of all their creative talents. I was so focused on the projects and i have learned I'm not the fastest colorer...don't figure. So a big shout out to all the other ladies there helping with the make and takes and being there for any questions we might have had. All the projects are fantastic and i love them all.

Here is the first make and take we had, what a fabulous tag. This was my first time touching a copic marker. I colored all these make and takes with them. It is a bit of a learning curve from using promarkers but i managed fine. Super cute.

Make and Take #2.

Have you ever colored on Kraft paper...not me. Loved how this image turned out. The paper soaks up the ink and you get your true colors when it's dry but love the outcome. And isn't this the greatest image ever???

Make and Take #3

My favorite i think. Great for gift cards for the Christmas season, I'll be making more of these as i have some nieces and nephews to give movie passes too. This was also my first paper piecing project I've ever done. Great technique, if you didn't see it's the wrapped package. The ribbon was colored and we added the printed paper for the gift. Open it up and you have a pocket for the gift card and a place to write your message.. This image did take a while to color, but well worth it.

Make and Take #4

A simple but very elegant card. We had some wonderful help from a DT's daughter, sorry i missed your name, but i was one focused and just wanted to complete all the make and takes. So thank you, you were the bomb. You made it so simple and easy to put this one together.

OK Check out the SWAG!!!

Fantastic goodie bag. Great stamps from Kimmie, which i colored while i was there and some great embellishments, magazine, tote bag, candy, stickles, glue dots, and twine..super nice to get a surprise bag of goodies, I'll take that any time eh???

OK OK, yes i spent money..But really there was no need but all these items were 30 percent off, there is no where i can get these items at these great prices near me. I also got some neenah paper as well which i forgot to pop in the frame. Remember don't tell the hubby....I just had to get a T-Shirt to remember the day, and some of Kimmies stamps.

WHEW!!! What a day, can we do it again????

All you bloggers out there should try and make it next year, super fun day, fantastic people and great fun for all...THANK YOU KIM!!!
