TGIF - FOUND IT Friday with Stampin' Tam! #FIF

Some of my Crafty friends have been teasing me quite a bit lately because I've been pretty vocal about avoiding the #PINTEREST wave.  I don't know about you, but I get in there and there's so much to see and do on a variety of topics and creative things that my mind suddenly feels like a kid in a candy store and I seem to lose hours in there....  so I try not to jump in too often..  

This week I wanted to share a neat idea I saw on Pinterest - I am always amazed with the things people come up with.  I often wonder what made them think of the things they share..  but I am grateful because sometimes these little brainfarts ignite a flow of creativity and just keep this train chugging along..  

This particular Pin gets my vote for awesome, this week!  A post from cstoutsimplement.canalblog.com is in french, but if you look at the very top of the post you'll see a spot where you can have the page translate for you to something you can understand. :) 

I just love this idea ~ With a substantial punch collection, the possibilities are almost endless!!  

If you try this idea, please share your creations!  If you get a chance please top by and give a virtual high-five to the creator of the inspiration as well.  :)

TGIF - FOUND IT Friday with Stampin' Tam!

I don't know about you but I know my calendar squares seem to be getting fuller and fuller and I'm finding a bit of an increasing frustration in daily reminders of how few days are left before the snow flies, and before the chubby man in the big red suit visits and the holiday pandemonium will ensue.  In fact, my own dear hubby sent me a short video clip this morning of snow flying in Ottawa today -- Can you feel my pain?
