WOYWW and Crafting Ireland!

Lots of fun scrappy things to share today on the blog, but I promise to keep it short for WOYWW.
I have missed the past two Wednesdays due to traveling and the holiday, but I am back!
Starting off with my workspace for all of us who link up to Julia's blog.
Right now I am using an Amy Tangerine Daybook to create an Instagram photo mini album. Using lots of Amy Tangerine sketchbook product, stamps and washi tape! And to the right there you can see a little tag my daughter Erin created from the star scraps I had leftover from this project.

Now for some fun, big to me news!
Issue 11 of Crafting Ireland magazine is now out. It is a free online craft magazine, and one of my cards from my card set article is on the cover
The summer card is mine. It is part of a Summer card set tutorial and article inside on page 43.
I can't post the actual card set here on the blog yet :)
I will also have a wedding layout featured on their blog in the not too distant future.

 *ETA* sorry, I must have messed up something with scheduling the post. It's there now :)
And I also have a challenge up over at the Craft your Nest blog today.
So a busy Wednesday for me :)
Hope you have a fun, craft filled Wednesday as well!


  1. You've been busy, Mary Jo! Congratulations on the cover spot. Your card is so pretty and definitely says "summer" to me.

  2. Is this really a tree house? Fab Fab Fab how lucky are you? It must be like going back to your childhood!!
    Bet its a good feeling to see your work on the front cover. You will be getting back into the crafting swing now that your back from hols, but it does take a little while to settle back into a routine again.
    Have a goo crafting week

    1. Not a real treehouse, no :) How cool would that be :) But it is a remodeled sun porch off the back of the second floor of our house right next to a large magnolia tree in our backyard. A few of my friends said it looked as if I was scrapping up in a treehouse, and it kind of stuck :)

  3. Congratulations! That's awesome! Your instagram album is already looking like it is going to be fabulous!

  4. Congrats! I will have to check it out. When I saw that you were doing an instagram book, I thought it was through one of the companies that print them for you. This is so much nicer. I love the Amy Tan collection and I look forward to seeing your pages. Have fun!

  5. Your card on the front of the magazine looks fantastic, congratulations! x

  6. Congrats on your cover card! That mini-album looks like a fun project. I bought an extra sheet of that Amy Tangerine camera paper for cutting out and am using it everywhere!

  7. Big congrats on your magazine cover card... Fantastic.. will be looking out for the wedding layout too.... Have a happy week, Hugs May x x x #8

  11. Congrats on your publication. Have fun with your mini

  12. Look at all those washi tapes! How fun to play with. And hey, did you always have that black mesh organizer on your desk? Why, yes, your banner photo says you did. Well, I just noticed it. That's probably because I saw it at the store the other day and really wanted it but couldn't justify getting it. It looked so neat and so useful! Who cares if I have nowhere to put it?! Congrats on being published. That is a fabulous summer card. It makes me think of summer as a kid (I grew up where you could actually go outside in summer, not like now). Fun stuff!

  13. Big Congrats!!
    Love your card!
    Look forward to seeing the full reveal on your blog when you can share more about it!!

  14. it really looks as if you are in atree house as you say how cool would that be?
    lots going on on your desk
    thanks for sharing
