Some random layouts from years past

These are some old layouts I did about 3 or 4 years ago. I don't remember anything about the product...it's been too long! But if you are interested in any of the techniques I used, just ask! (My personal fav. is using ribbon as flower stems. You can also use it for flower petals! I'll have to take a pic of the page I did using that technique...it won one of the Page Challenges last year at Capture! :) But that's a whole other post.)

Enjoy and thanks for looking!

I drank the Twitter Kool-Aid

Yep, that's right. I now have a Twitter account. Just so I can give everyone on the interwebs up to the minute details about my oh-so exciting life. lol

So if you're even remotely interested, you can follow me on Twitter! Yay!

Check out my sister's shop!

My sister "M" is super crafty (it runs in the family!) and has started making wine glass charms. They are too adorable!

You can buy them from her Etsy shop: Drink 4 Mommy.

My fav's so far are The Funky Bunch, Color Swirls and Colorful Clips (helloooo!! How fun would it be to add name tags or funny quotes to your wine glasses at your next party?!

And the prices are so affordable!

Stop by her shop today and take a look at her awesome creations!

Some cards I've been working on

(If you're interested in buying some, they will be available at Capture very soon!)

This card uses a new stamp set I bought from My Favorite Things (MFT). These stamps are GREAT! Very good quality, and cute designs too!
This stamp set is called "It's a cupcake kind of day!"
Photobucket

 I stamped the cupcake on regular white cardstock and colored it in, then stamped it again on colored cardstock so I could do some paper piecing. I popped the paper pieced cupcake off the page with foam squares.Then I made the cherry sparkly with some Stickles.
Photobucket
This is another stamp set from MFT. It's called "What's up Cupcake?".
Photobucket

I used Glossy Accents on the 'icing' and popped the floral transparency with foam squares.
Photobucket

These stamps are also from the sets I bought at MFT. The sparkly baubles are called "Glittered Garnishes" (from the Summer collection). Too cute! I used liquid glue to adhere them. I also used Glossy Accents on the icing, but you can't tell because I forgot to take the pic before I put it in the clear baggie. (D'oh!)

Photobucket

These two birthday cards use a couple of rubber stamps I bought at Jo Ann's for a DOLLAR! (Gotta love the dollar section!)

I used Glossy Accents to make the balloon and the present shine. I colored the images with CTMH's Watercolor Pencils and used a Blending Pen to smooth it out.

The next cards showcase stamp sets I bought from Stamping Bella. These are not clear stamps, they are unmounted rubber.You will need to use either double sided tape or a product called EZ Mount to adhere them to a block. I recommend designating one block to these style stamps, so you don't ruin your other blocks. You can read all about it here.

This stamp is called "Prezzibella". I used both Glossy Accents and Stickles on the present. I colored the image with watercolor pencils and blended it with the blending pen.

Photobucket

This stamp is called "Spabella". I colored the image with watercolor pencils and the blending pen. I also used Glossy Accents on her glass. (I was going to use Fun Flock on her slippers, but I only have it in white. I need to buy more colors! How cute would FUZZY slippers be?!?)

Thanks for looking! :)

Feeding the ducks at City Park

This is what I did at Capture's All Day Crop on Jan. 2nd.

I cut the flower pattern out a little bit with an exacto knife, and tucked the picture under it (just like I did in my Halloween layout.) Then I used Glossy Accents to make it shiny, although it's hard to tell in these pics.

Photobucket


I also added color and shine to the brown floral paper. (I used markers and Glossy Accents.)

For the black & white paper, I added color and shine by using Stickles and Glossy Accents. I also used the Glossy Accents on the circles.

Those are the only layouts I finished! :(
(You'd think being there for 12 hours, I'd get more done, lol.)

The rest of the day was spent eating, talking and working on my Valentine cards for an upcoming class.;-)

New Year, New Look

What do you think of my new look? I figured I'd change things up a bit. I get bored easily. ;)

You can find great blog backgrounds, buttons, blinkies and more at Shabby Blogs (Where I got mine).

I also like The Cutest Blog On The Block.

And guess what? They're FREE! :) Free is fun.

Like the little cartoon girl I made? You can get one too at Pose Prints. Creating one is free! (Big thanks to my friend Linds for that tip!)

Stay tuned in the next few days to see what I made at Capture's All Day Crop yesterday!
