Quote | “If you were scared and worried…”

Lyrics | "You and I" | Avalanche City

I heard an Avalanche City song on a commercial the other day, and got excited about it in the way that I always get excited over those kinds of things. My personal favorite by this New Zealand artist is this particular one though…I think a lot of us out there can identify with wanting to fill a whole room full of something we’re addicted to. Hehe ;)

(And can we talk about how adorable this video is?! It kills me every time I watch it)

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Supplies Used: cardstock (Bazzill), patterned paper (My Mind’s Eye Lost and Found pad), border punch (Fiskars Threading Water), die cut letters (Quickutz Chandelier die), letter stamps (Studio G)

Quote | “Come Josephine…”

Lyrics | Come Josephine In My Flying Machine

I keep getting this lyric randomly stuck in my head. If you were a teenage girl in the 90’s, then you know how you first heard of this song.

This month marks SIXTEEN FREAKING YEARS since Titanic’s release. I was crazy obsessed with the movie (it’s still the only one I’ve seen three times in a theater), and I think my insane Gatsby excitement this past year has reverted me back a bit to this one.

Watch this if you want to get some of those teenage feelings back. And of course, here is the 1911 Ada Jones and Billy Murray version of the song.

Oh yeah, and Mr. Burns rendition.

 

Supplies: Bazzill Green Tea (cardstock), Fancy Pants What A Wonderful Day 6×6 paper pad (hot air balloon, blue paper), Quickutz Eliza alphabet (retired), silver brads

Quote | “Decide what to be…”

Lyrics | Head Full Of Doubt | The Avett Brothers

I have this problem with perfection. To the point it actually interferes with what I love most. (Being dorky with paper)

It’s the dumbest thing ever, I mean seriously.

So, I’m changing the way I’ve done these lyric posts in the past…instead of graphic images, I’m going to allow myself to just play with my craft supplies instead, using words I love, and not worry about perfect picture placement, the right sentiment, or just screwing up something.

Making the above 6×6 of The Avett Brothers, “Head Full of Doubt, Road Full of Promise” and getting this photographed and posted has taken me about an hour and half.

 

Which is kind of amazing for me. BOOYAH GRANDMA.

 

Supplies: paper from Lawn Fawn, bird washi tape from Pretty Tape, woodgrain cardstock from LCI Paper, photo corners, Dymo Caption Maker, and Quickutz Studio Classic alphabet
