Sparkles, stars and savings.

I LOVE the 4th of July!

The warmer weather, picnics, picking crabs, friends, fireworks and the birth of our nation…what’s not to love?

July is quickly approaching and for our demonstrator meeting we do a card swap. This is very similar to the card I have prepped for trading. You didn’t think I would show you the actual card did you? I have to keep it a surprise until the meeting. đŸ˜‰

Have you ever seen such a versatile stamp set? There is so many different options with the Sprinkles of Life stamps!

Notice the Lucky Stars embossing folder imprint on the card? It’s one of this week’s Weekly Deals … just in time for the 4th of July!

Speaking of the holiday, I had the opportunity to test out a technique I learned in photography class. My sister, Hannah and brother’s girlfriend, Mary assisted me with the sparklers. đŸ™‚

Do you like how they turned out? Pretty cool, right!?

I have a friend who owns his own photography business, he shot images like these and had the subject make words and shapes … facinating! Since then, I’ve been excited to experiment with my camera. These are not PhotoShopped, it’s actually the subject writing in the air while the camera takes the image.

What do you see?



Hannah’s name!

Now that I’ve figured out the basic process, I can work on this technique a little more before July 4th.
