Happy Thanksgiving

November 27th, 2013 · scrapbook

Hello Friends! Today I have a Thanksgiving gift idea to share.

I started out by downloading a Printable Sentiment from Paper Crafts Magazine. It’s free, it’s cute and I designed it, eeeps! I printed the sentiment onto a Large White Tag.
I added a petite chevron sticky to the bottom of the tag.
I trimmed a short length of Solid Yellow Divine twine and stitched the tag and twine to a Middy Bitty Polka Dot Bag.
I filled the bag with a treat, folded the top of the bag over and tied a bow.

Polka Dot Middy Bitty Bag | Solid Yellow Divine Twine | Chevron Petite Sticky | Large White Tag

Hello Friends! I’m hopping with the Moxie Fab Thanks Cath Blog hop today. If you’ve come here from Tara’s blog then you are already on the right track. If not, you can start here at the Moxie Fab World for the top of the hop.
I have long been a fan of Cath and Moxie Fab World so, of course, I was saddened to read her post about moving on from Moxie Fab World. One of my first experiences with the Moxie Fab World was years ago when Cath invited readers to share our blogs with her and she came by and visited my blog. I was so honored when she visited and commented. Just a few weeks ago I told Cath (on facebook) that I absolutely loved her posts. Every image she shared always elicited an emotional response. Sometimes it was awww, that’s so cute. Sometimes it was WOW, that is amazing. Sometimes it was Gasp, that is beautiful. It was many things but it always made me feel. We share a love for tone on tone, texture, foxes, and so many other things. I also appreciate how Cath is sincere and always makes you feel important. FOR these and many more reasons I will miss Cath at the Moxie Fab World.

Thank You Cath and I wish you the best in your future awesomeness. because, you. are. awesome.

I made this card for you. :)

White Woodgrain Cardstock, MT Gold striped, solid and blue solid washi tapes, Freckled Fawn wide gold chevron tape, Bossy Joscie Shiny Gold Flair, Whisker Graphics Solid Aqua twine, Studio Calico Woodgrain  Sequins and Wood Veneer Alphas, Neat and Tangled Flat Matte Gold Sequins.
Thanks for stopping by! Your next stop on the hop is Ashley Harris.

Rock Chalk Baby Blog Hop

November 6th, 2013 · blog, cardmaking, craft


Hello Friends! Today I’m joining up with my Gallery Idol ’12 girlfriends to celebrate one of our own who is expecting a baby soon! Erin Schreiner is a designer for Unity Stamps. She is gorgeous, stylish and a great mom. She’s super funny and I just love her! To say that Erin is a KU Basketball fan would be a huge understatement, this is why I thought ROCK CHALK Baby Blog Hop would be a perfect name for our congratulatory hop. Here’s a list of the lovely ladies who are participating:

Aga Malyszek
Amy Kolling
Anita Recksiedler
Cheiron Brandon
Dana Warren
Debbie Marcinkiewicz
Elena Roussakis
Heather Campbell
Jennifer Rzasa
Jennifer Ingle
JJ Bolton
Jocelyn Olson
Joscelyne Cutchens **
Laurie Willison
Miriam Prantner
Nina Yang
Taheerah Atchia
Tessa Wise
Wida Yusufi-Miller

I created this card to send to Erin to welcome that little butter bean into the world!


I created the image in Photoshop, printed on Neenah Solar White. I pierced holes at (mostly) regular intervals around the oval and hand stitched some buttery yellow crochet thread around the image.
My wishes for an uncomplicated birth immersed in love for this sweet family! I love you Erin!

Your next stop is Laurie Willison!

October 24th, 2013 · cardmaking, scrapbook

Hello friends! It has been a while but we are finally getting settled here in Alabama. I thought it fitting for my first post back to be a hello card that I created for Whisker Graphics.
I started by die cutting a hello on this Large Gray Tag from Whisker Graphics.
I also die cut some feathers out of a Silver Chevron Middy Bag from Whisker Graphics.
I stitched the feathers to the tag with cream thread on my sewing machine and added a few dots in silver paint because i love polka dotted feathers. A loop of Oyster Divine twine held down with my tiny attacher and foam adhesive for the tag on white woodgrain cardstock.
hello card by Joscelyne Cutchens
hello die: Memory Box, fanciful feathers die: wplus9, White Woodgrain Cardstock, Tiny Attacher, Foam Adhesive, Silver Paint, Sewing Machine, Paint Brush.
I’ll be posting tidbits from our move and repainting our home and all of the life stuff bit by bit. Thanks for stopping by!

More migration pictures

July 27th, 2013 · Family, Hawaii, house, mobile, navy life

We finished up the packout on Tuesday, signed all the inventory sheets and watched the truck drive away. We drove down to the moving company’s warehouse to drop off Troy’s motorcycle to be shipped in our household goods.
20130727-081620.jpg 20130727-081817.jpg 20130727-081839.jpg
We cleaned up the house over a few days, scrubbing top to bottom. I found these bits in my scraproom before vacuuming, hello sequin!
20130727-082025.jpg and then in the hotel room… 20130727-082112.jpg #craftyInfiltration
We also went out and bought some new shorts/jeans for the boys. I really do prefer shopping online for the boys. We took a break to enjoy some books at the exchange. 20130727-082624.jpg
We did find what we were looking for at Old Navy and thenenjoyed some shave ice when we were done at Mountain Magic. 20130727-082401.jpg 20130727-082409.jpg
Picked up my camera from canon the other day, got her serviced and all the lenses and body calibrated.
Living in the Navy Lodge is really pretty nice. We are enjoying the continental breakfast daily (hello mini bagels) and it is just like a little adventure walking around the island.

There was a guy who was fishing the other day and when both of his poles got a nibble, he invited Jalen to reel it in!
Sunsets are beautiful here. 20130727-083517.jpg
I snapped some pictures from the USS Utah Memorial
20130727-083637.jpg 20130727-083652.jpg
We woke up early this morning to catch the sunset from the USS Arizona Memorial
20130727-083844.jpg 20130727-083855.jpg 20130727-083904.jpg 20130727-083914.jpg 20130727-083924.jpg 20130727-083933.jpg
Yesterday the boys got haircuts :)
We end each night reading Fablehaven. 20130727-084206.jpg
And because I can’t resist food pictures…
20130727-084618.jpg 20130727-084627.jpg 20130727-084643.jpg 20130727-084654.jpg
I haven’t read a physcal newspaper in years! I saw a stack in the hotel the other day so i picked one up. I taught Jalen about the lettered sections and page numbers and let him read the comics. 20130727-084707.jpg 20130727-084715.jpg
I mentioned that i only kept one bottle of nail polish, essie mint candy apple, one glitter and base and top coat. #firstworldproblems my friends predicted that i wouldn’t be able to hold out and with so few color choices until sept. Guess What? They were right. Essie marked down to $4.77, i couldn’t resist. 20130727-084754.jpg 20130727-084801.jpg
And finally, we snapped this with my remote in our bedroom before removing the vinyl.
