Valentine card for my sweetie. Making any kind of card for guy is always a challenge for me. I think these colors worked out well. I did get a little bubbling on the card, I should have used a different adhesive. But he enjoyed it anyway :)

Here is a new layout I did for a challenge, on one of my scrapbook groups. We had to go by a sketch and try to duplicate it . I used my cricut to cut out the heart, and used my distressing ink by Ranger. I used cute rhinestones and baubles to give it a little bling.

CDF Training

So on Friday Jan 30th, I had the opportunity to go to a Certified Fiskars Demonstrator training session at this wonderful scrap store, The Funkie Munkie! So my best friend Angie went with me and we had a blast! We met new friends and laughed and learned all together.
I would really like to thank Debby Lewis for coming up from Columbia to take the time to show us the way!
So here are we are!

Altered Projects

So thanks to the snow we got last night, I didnt get to go to work today. But was quite scary driving home though! So today I had to keep myself busy. I had bought this jumbo clothespin and mini clipboard for a buck a while back , so today I had time to do something with them .
Both of these were so simple! I covered with paper, made a few bows and added some lady bugs. I had gotten these cute lady bugs years ago at wal mart and didnt know what to do with them! So there you have it, I have now used them :)

Today I worked on a Valentine card for my mom. This was 4 heart shaped chipped board I have had and I just decorated each page, and used my wonderful Cropadile to punch holes in the top and added some rings and covered in ribbon. My fiskers hand knife worked out so well on this. What a time saver!

Penny Black Winter Tree

Penny Black makes beautiful stamps, I think they are most of my favorites . Here is what I call , The Winter Tree. A 6x6 card, the 2nd layer I tried to paper pierce by hand, so you can see some imperfections, but you get the idea. I stamped using Staz On white, which I am not crazy about. Yes it STAYS ON. And never comes off of anything it touches. Of course they sell their own cleaner, but its hard to find. But it dosnt stamp well even on this dark shade of purple I selected. So I touch up the tree with some Snow and some Bling. The ribbon is simply a black sheer with white polka dots.

This is the easiest thing ever! This was one of the 1st things I did with my cricut. Simply cut out , I think this was a 6 inch cut. and then do the "shadow" for it.. Add a little ribbon on top, and there ya go! Great gift for the pooch! Rock gave it a 2 paws up!!

New Stamps! Stamptivity stamps are so cute!

So today I had to work, it wasn't so bad. After coming home and cooking lunch, I decided to work on some cards. I finished up a swap that I am in and then worked on a card for my aunt using my new stamps. I accidentally ran across these stamps while looking for Bella stamps, and I am glad I did. So in this card, I used a butterfly stamp from Autumn Leaves and stamped it several times and used silver embossing. Then I used prisma colors to color it. I used one on top of each other to give it a 3d affect. Cute huh? So the girl stamp are the new one from Stamptiviy, I cant wait to see all the cute cards I make with these.

Happy New Year!!

So the 1st day of the year and what did I do?? I made cards of course! Oh yea and I stayed in my pjs all day long! My sweet man of mine even went to the store for me so I wouldnt have to stop what I was working on.....go ahead and say it....awwwww.....So anywho, this is what I did yesterday. A 6x6 card with a cute stamp by Impression Obsession , its called Eskimo Kisses. I used my buttons that I got from swap, they came in real handy! Its hard to tell from the pic, but I added some shiney snow to the snowmen that really add a nice touch.
