The challenge:


And we have an amazing sponsor, of course:

The whole CAS-ual Fridays team was lucky enough to be provided a whole 6x6 paper pack from gina k. designs! And it's a fabulous collection! We were all super excited to receive this paper because it's actually called CASUAL FRIDAY! How perfect is THAT!

Here's the card I made with these awesome papers!

LOVE these masculine patterns! I know exactly where to turn when I need to make a masculine card now!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you'll find some time to play along with us this week!

LOTS of great deals- I hope you'll check it out!

Have a great weekend!



Butterfly Guide


How's it going?

I've got a fun card to share with you today!
I combined beautiful elements from the newest Market Fresh Kit {Daydreaming} with the gorgeous butterfly stamp from Market Street Stamps and a sentiment that says SO much!

I think this would be a great card to send to someone who might be at a crossroads- the sentiment, "Let your heart be your guide" is great advice!

I was inspired by the sketch at Retro Sketches this week!


Thanks for stopping by today!




CAS-UAL Fridays 53- Punchy

Hi! How are you this weekend?!

I here to share the latest 

This is the challenge this week:

Use your favorite punches and dies this week for your clean and simple creations!

And there's a fab prize to be won from our amazing sponsor, Lawn Fawn!


Here's what I made this week:

I got a little summer-y for this one! I used some fab papers from the Lawn Fawn Bright Side Petite Paper Pack to create this cute patchwork "lawn!" Of course, I used my Sizzix Hexagon die- I really love it! And how stinkin' cute are that bee and flamingo from the Gnome Sweet Gnome set?! Love them! 

I hope you'll stop by the CAS-ual Fridays blog to see all the fabulous design team inspiration! 




A VERY FOND farewell...

If you receive the Market Street Stamps newsletter, then you know that there is a lot of fun stuff coming up in June for Market Street Stamps! There  was also some sad news in the newsletter regarding the Market Fresh Kit Club.

After five months of producing beautiful, affordable kits for our customers, we have decided to put the kit club on hiatus for the time being. It was a really hard decision, but at this time, the kit doesn't fit well into the plan for Market Street Stamps. That being said, I am forever grateful to Angelica and Jorge for giving me the incredible opportunity to grow and learn through this process and for helping me stretch my creativity in a way that I didn't think possible a year ago. 

This kit club has provided me so much joy and happiness this year. I am SO proud that people really ENJOY the products that I choose each month for the kits! I am still SO excited to see people using the kits to create beautiful art! It's a very surreal experience and I am so thankful for our Market Street family that has supported this venture from the beginning. Our subscribers are FRIENDS- they are a constant inspiration to me and have given me the push to do MORE with my creativity. I couldn't be more thankful for that!

Brenda and Jinny have gone ABOVE and BEYOND to create beautiful inspiration each and every month to really CELEBRATE the kit. They are amazing designers and I absolutely could not have promoted these kits to their fullest without their amazing talent! Thank you so, so much Brenda and Jinny for all your support and creativity! 

There are still several kits available in the Marketplace! You should definitely run over and check them out- when they're gone, they're gone! They are individual inspiration jump-starters- trust me when I say that you'll LOVE to have one of these kits sitting on your desk! 

Here are some of my favorite projects I've created with the kits!

FYI- I LOVE the process of putting together these kits. It really boosts my creativity to have a group of coordinated products sitting on my desk to work with for the month! Starting June 1st, I will be listing a coordinating set of products here on my blog that I will be creating with for the month! I will include images for the products, links to where you can purchase the products, and projects to provide inspiration for using those products! I will even provide a place to link up projects that YOU are creating with those products! There MIGHT be prizes involved.... hehe! 

It's different than purchasing a kit because you can pick and choose products that YOU like and choose not to purchase products that you don't like or want. You might already have this stuff! It's just an informal way to introduce you, my blog readers, with fun coordinating  products each and every month! I hope you'll love it!

  Look for the "INSPIRATION STATION" to begin in June!
