Let's Party!!!

HI there. Hope you had a wonderful Halloween! We are getting ready to go out Trick-or-Treating soon. We also took our 2 older girls to the local Philharmonic Orchestra today. I won 4 tickets to the "Haunted Hogwarts" show from a local family magazine. The girls also got to try playing a violin and a cello before the show. For the performance, they played mostly Harry Potter pieces from the first 3 movies. My oldest daughter is a Harry fanatic, so this was perfect for her. Well, today I had time for a quick card. My oldest DD is going to a birthday party next weekend, and I wanted to make a card for it. I decided to use this week's Sweet Stop Sketch for my LO.Aren't these monsters so cute??!!!! This is one of the stamp sets I got from my Close to my Heart party I had at the beginning of October. The PP is also from CTMH, and goes with this set. You can see the little monsters on the green PP. I stamped the monsters and colored them with colored pencils. The ribbon I found in my stash, and happened to have just enough for this card. I used a SU boarder punch for the trim along the edge of the green PP.
I thought this was a cute card to share this Halloween too! final note...

Happy Halloween!!!!! From my family to you!!!!!!

Morgan's Challenge Card

Here is my oldest daughter Morgan's challenge card for the Kona Kid Krafters "Kids Choice" challenge. She actually made this card for one of her classmates, whose family had a fire in their house this past Friday. She wanted to give her a card to let her know she is thinking and praying for her. She used the cocoa with doughnut image from Sweet 'n Sassy. The PP is some from my stash, and she wrote the sentiment. She also added the little heart brads.

QKR Stampede Turkey!

HI there. Today I wanted to share a card I made using the Thanksgiving Feast stamp from QKR Stampede. I also used the Happy Thanksgiving sentiment from QKR. I started with a white CS base...and this base is a little bigger then I usually use. I used a full 1/2 sheet of 8 1/2" x 11 CS. I layered the PP onto that, which is PP I picked up at Target $1 spot (shocking that I have paper from I stamped the middle turkey on white CS with black ink, and colored with colored pencil. Then I stamped 2 more and embossed with white embossing power on brown CS. I stamped the sentiment on white CS, and trimmed it into 2 pieces. Last, I added a couple little olive colored buttons to the right corners.
That is all for now! Thanks for stopping by!

Ewe's Just Fluffy - Creative Belli Day!

Hi there. Today is Wednesday, which means...a brand new challenge over at the Creative Belli Challenge. This time we are challenging you to use flocking or flower soft on your project. Now I know at some point most have you have gone out and purchased one or both of these products because they looked really cool on a project you saw on a blog. often do you really use it??? I know I bought a whole bunch of colors of flower soft back in August and still haven't used My flocking I have had for a couple years, and don't use it as much as I could. Since the idea behind the Creative Belli Challenge is to use embellishments (belli) that you already have laying around, this is a great time to pull out that flower soft or flocking you HAD to have, and USE IT! Here is the card I came up with for this challenge. Ok...first off...I just LOVE this saying. LOL...and the image is just perfect to go with it. Both of these images are from QKR Stampede. I stamped the "ewe" and fussy cut it. I used a marker to color the horns, face, and legs. To the body, I added some white flocking. I wanted to also use some flower soft on this card, so I decided to pull out the green flower soft I bought a year or so ago, and make it into the "grass". I also added a little yellow and pink to be flowers in the field. The background paper I have had for a few months. I needed cloud paper for a project a while back, and had some scraps left. So I added that to the background. I stamped the sentiment in light blue ink and trimmed the white paper to look like a cloud. I added some liquid applique to the outer edges of the sentiment to make it "fluffy". Please stop on over to the Creative Belli Challenge blog and see what the other DT ladies have come up with for this challenge. Don't forget to play along with us, and link your flocking or flower soft card to Mr. Linky at the bottom of the Belli Challenge 103.

I am also using this card for the following challenges:

Red Ribbon Week Barrette

Hi there. This week is Red Ribbon Week. For those who don't know what that is, it is a programs to celebrate being drug free. Most schools participate in this with various activities. My daughters' school is celebrating this week with coloring contests, hat decorating contest (for the older grades), and tomorrow they can wear red "accessories". Well I have 2 girls in school, and only 1 red So I decided to get crafty, and come up with an accessory for my other daughter. Here is what I came up with.

I pulled out some of the giant flowers I have, and layered them. I used my i-Top to make a big red red to hold them all together, and hot glued them onto a barrette. It is hard to see from the photo, but there are 4 large flowers (2 red and 2 white), and 1 smaller white flower. The PP on the i-Top brad is some I had in my stash for a very very very long I can't wait to show her in the morning. I think she is going to love this red ribbon week accessory!

Dino-riffic Birthday

Hi there. Today I wanted to share a card I made for my mom to give to my nephew for his birthday. So I had to come up with something boyish...and dinosaurs were the only thing that came to Since I happen to have some dino stuff because my youngest DD loves dinosaurs. I used this week's Sweet Stop Sketch for my LO. I started with some yellow CS as my base color. Then I layered the PP onto that, and some yellow ribbon. I rotated the sketch a little to fit my card. I used some green and yellow Core'dinations CS for the ovals. I crinkled them, and sanded them a little too. Then I layered the yellow rectangle onto that, and added a triceratops sticker to that. I used my Cricut and the dinosaur cartridge to cut the footprints. I cut them with some grayish PP, and sponged over them to make them a little darker. Oh, I also added some little silver brads to the corners too. I hand wrote "Happy Birthday" with black marker.
Thanks for stopping by!

99% Done! WooHoo!!!

So am I the only one who has the best ideas pop into my head while I am laying in bed? I have been trying to decide what to do with the center of my advent calendar. Last weekend I shared the start of my progress HERE and HERE. I was laying in bed the other night, and it came to me...a fireplace! So I looked through my Cricut cartridges, and sure enough I had one. My next step was to find either wood grain or brick PP, or an embossing folder that would give either of those effects. I ended up finding some PP at my LCS the yesterday that was perfect. So this afternoon, I got to work. Here is my fireplace...And here is the ALMOST finished product...
I just LOVE it! I used a box I had saved (thinking I might alter it) to attach the fireplace to. That way I had a "mantel" to put the picture frames on. Yes I am short a picture frame (hence the 99% done)...they only had 2 left, BUT I got a rain check so I get the sale price for it when it does come back in. The frames are 2" x 3", and perfect to swap out school photos each holiday season. I added the little stockings with liquid applique, and each of my girls' initials. My 5 year old suggested I add some "sparks" to my fire, so I give her credit for the idea of the red stickles on the fire. I am so pleased with the way this turned out, and can't wait to fill each little drawer with a treat for my girls.

I was cleaning my linen closet the other day, and found this candle...still wrapped in the cello Who knows how long that has been in there. I stamped this guy on some tissue paper, and colored him with marker. Then I used my heat tool to "melt" it onto the candle. Next, I stamped the Happy Thanksgiving sentiment onto some tissue paper. I trimmed off the "happy" and put that onto the candle. I thought it would make a cute centerpiece for my table this year. Altered candles are so simple to make, and look very "impressive" when people see them. They make great gifts too!

"Off Color" Fall Tree

I wanted to share a card I made for this week's Whimsie Doodles Challenge. The challenge this week is to use "off colors". So, don't use the usual colors for your you could use orange and black as Christmas colors instead of Halloween. I decided to make a fall card using pinks, peach, and purples. I was inspired by the PP I picked up a couple weeks ago at Target $1 spot. Not that I needed more paper, but I just HAD to have Anyway, I used the tree and leaves from SU, and the owl is from another SU set. I inked up the leaves in various shades of pink, purple, and peach. The owl is also pink and peach. I fussy cut all the leaves and the owl, and layered them onto the tree. It wouldn't be a fall tree without leaves on the ground, so I also stamped some leaves at the base of the tree. I added some smooth pearl to the tree leaves too. I layered the tree onto the pinkish PP, and added some pinkish ribbon too. Last I added the sparkly pink brads. I hope you like my "off color" card! Thanks for stopping by.

QKR Thursday

Hi there. Hope you are having a good week so far. Today I wanted to share a card I made using the Watering Hearts image from QKR Stampede. I also used THIS sentiment from QKR Stampede. I thought they went very well together. I started with the white CS base, and layered the PP (from SU) onto that. I used some white paint around the edges of the PP. Next, I did some paper piecing. I used some of the PP from the same collection as the background paper. I paper pieced her dress, tights, and shoes. I used some blue glitter on her wings, and stickles on the halo. I colored the rest of the image with marker. I stamped the sentiment and trimmed it to "fit" the spot I had The blue bows were some I had in my stash from a crop I went to a while back.
Now, I wanted to give you a "sneak peek" of my project for tomorrow's QKR Stampede "Let's Talk Turkey" blog hop! This is the first blog hop featuring the new DT...and you are in for a real always!

Thankful Tree

Hi there. I finally was able to make it down to my stamp room this morning. Only briefly, but I was able to get a card done. I have "ideas" in my head for my next card Ideas are good at least. Anyway, I made this card using this week's What If? Wednesday Sketch from Repeat Impressions. I also made this into a Thank you card...which is the challenge this week over at the Simon Says Challenge Blog. I used a tree image from SU "Lovely as a Tree" set. I also used the little leaf images from that set to create a background. I layered the tree onto a white circle that I used the leaf image with one of my kalidacolor pads. I layered that onto the brown scalloped circle. The sentiment is from TAC, and I punched it out with a scalloped oval, and stippled on it. This is a pretty CAS card, but I thought it turned out pretty nice. Thanks for stopping by!

More Progress...

So my DH was super nice to me today! He took the girls out of the house all afternoon so I could craft! Well I wanted to share with you what I got done. I am soooo excited to finally be making progress on my advent calendar. Yesterday I showed you the put together base, well today I have the drawers folded, AND decorated!I just love the way it is turning out. The PPs I used are all from the Polar Expressions collection from Imaginisce. I added some cute holiday buttons to some of the drawers too. I picked those up at Michael's awhile back. My mom helped me trim the loops off the back today. I also used stickles, iRock gems and crystals, stickers, and Smooch to embellish. Here are some close-ups of some of the drawers. As you can see from the photos, I still haven't done anything with the center. I did get a couple good suggestions that I am thinking over still. So hopefully over the next couple weeks I will figure something out, and be able to share that with you. My girls were very excited to see the progress when they got home today too. Thanks for stopping by!

Paper Pieced Princess

Today I wanted to share a card I made for two different challenges. I used this week's Sweet Stop sketch...with a twist (let is sparkle) for my LO. I also used the "recipe" challenge from the Simon Says Challenge this week. The recipe is: 3 types of embellishments, 2 Patterned Papers, and 1 image. Here is my card.I used the princess image from The Greeting Farm(1 image). I stamped her and colored her with markers. I paper pieced her dress with the same PP as the background (2 PPs), the papers are from Cosmo Cricket. Then I added 3 types of embellishments...

1. iRock crystals to the corners of the princess
2. gold stickles to the crown and wand (let is sparkle!!!)
3. sparkly fun flock to the dressWell that is all for now. Thanks for stopping by. I am off to craft all afternoon! The DH is taking the kids out for the day, and I get to work on my advent calendar!!!! Well...pending my little one doesn't have to go to emergent care. She fell in the hallway after church, and hit her arm pretty hard. She says it still hurts, but she is moving it now, so I think we are okay.

Saturday, October 16, 2010


So awhile back I purchased the Kaisercraft Advent calendar kit. I started it a while back I did all the painting of the main pieces...then I walked So today I realized it is almost Halloween, which means I really should get going on Christmas stuff. So, I pulled it out again, and finished putting it together.

So the base is all set now. Next step is to put the little drawers together, and decorate them. I have all sorts of papers, and little buttons to decorate it with. I still have to decide what exactly to do with the center. I thought about a photo, but I want to use this for many years to come. So...I am still not positive. So I will do all the drawers, and then go with the center. Maybe a giant tree with little ornament embellishments will be fun.

So I will share my progress with you as I Thanks for stopping by!

Ashley's Challenge Card

Here is my DD Ashley's card for the following challenges:

She used some orange textured CS for the base. We used mommy's Cricut to cut the spider web. We used an i-Top punch to make the spider (mommy saw this on another blog this week, but can't remember where). She wanted the spider to be sparkly, so we used 1/2 a bottle of stickles on not that much, but it did take forever to dry! She added some wiggly eyes, and a little mouth. We used some spider web ribbon, and we made a brad with the i-Top.

Winter Fun!

Hi there. Today I wanted to play along with this month's Imaginisce Sketch Challenge. So, I went out of my norm, and made a fancy LO page. This was NOT easy for Oh, and I don't have the picture for the page yet because...well it is a winter LO, and it isn't winter yet. I want to include this page in my 2010 Year in Review album I have been working on, so I just put a photo mat on the page where the photo WILL go. Now bear with me here, 12x12 pages are very hard to photograph. I did my best, and got some close ups of some of the details for you too. Sorry the lighting is bad has been raining here all day, and it is just yucky out. Anyway, I started with a piece of 12x12 whiteist kraft CS. I layered the brown PP from the Polar Expressions collection from Imaginisce onto that. The strips of PP behind the photo mat are also from Polar Expressions collection. Like I mentioned before I don't have a photo YET, so I used a piece of white CS as a photo mat on this LO. Next, I used my Cricut to cut out the title with the blue snowflake PP from the Polar Expressions collection. I even added an i-Rock crystal to the dot on the "i". I also used one of the templates for the i-Rock and added this swirl to the bottom corner. I thought it looked like the "wind blowing" like on the background paper. In the top right corner, I used the same blue snowflake PP that I used for the title to cut out some snowflakes with my Cricut. I added some i-Rock crystals to the center, and i-Rock pearls to the circle part of the snowflakes.
Last, I added a piece of PP that has "blocks" for journaling after I add a photo. This PP is from the same collection of papers.


Now touchdown is NOT a word we have been hearing here in Buffalo so far this football season, but I thought I would make a football card anyway. I thought it would be fun to feature this fun Football Snowman image for my QKR Stampede Thursday card. I went for a vintage look too...well at least some ink distressing. Since touchdowns are so foreign here, I thought I should make it look like something from the Anyway, I stamped this guy on white CS, and colored with marker. I added some stickles to the snowflakes, and cut the image into an oval. The PP is from the Target $1 spot a few years back. It went perfect with the colors on my snowman's uniform too. The sentiment is a rub-on. This snowman is just one of the many great snowman images in the QKR Stampede store. Be sure to stop on over to the QKR website, and check out the many great images available.

Creative Belli Challenge 102 - Pumpkins/Fall

Hello there! Hope you are having a wonderful week so far. Today we have a brand new challenge for you over at the Creative Belli Challenge. Our challenge this week is pumpkins or fall, and if you are feeling up for the "twist" add the sketch in too. You can find the sketch over at the Creative Belli Blog. I decided to just go with the theme this time and opt. out of the sketch. I thought it would be fun to make a little Halloween photo album. I used my Cricut Create a Critter cartridge to cut some chipboard pumpkins out. Then, I pulled out some really really old PP (use up what you have! That is the idea behind the Belli Challenge) and CS, and cut some more pumpkins to go over the chipboard. Actually my chipboard is "old" too...and well I guess it really isn't even It is pieces of cardboard from my mother's They were just going to recycle it anyway, so she brings it home to me for mini albums, and patterns. Anyway...I used some solid CS for some of the pages, and some of the Halloween PP from the Target $1 spot (a few years ago) for the other pages. For the cover I also added some old heat set gems I had, and I used some stickers I have had for a while too. Here is a view of the "front" side of the pages. And the back cover and back side of the pages... I also added some ribbon from my stash to the binder ring for color and cause I really like the way that looks on mini Here is one of the pages that I am going to use for my youngest daughter. She is going to be Jessie from Toy Story. I found some Toy Story stickers back in the spring, and bought them because they were on sale. Well I have not touched them But they were on sale so I had to buy them. What a great way to use some of them! Now...I am on a mission to find stickers for my other girls' pages. I need Harry Potter stickers, and Incredibles stickers. If you know of a place I can get them PLEASE leave me a comment and let me know!
Now, I just need to wait for Halloween to fill in this adorable little mini album.

It is your turn now! We want to see what you can come up with for our theme and sketch (optional) this week. Head on over to the Creative Belli Challenge and see what the other ladies have come up with too. Don't forget to play along, and link your project to the bottom of Post 102! Thanks for stopping by!

Magnolia Butterfly

Hi there. Hope you are having a wonderful long weekend. We have been busy busy here. It has been non-stop activities so far this weekend, so it is kinda nice to have a nice relaxing afternoon at home today. I am looking forward to making homemade bread sticks with my girls today. Anyway, I wanted to share this card I made with you. I used another one of the Magnolia images I won a few weeks ago. I colored her with markers, and added some stickles to the wings and antennas. The background paper is from SEI. I just LOVE this paper. It is so pretty. It is hard to see in the picture, but the paper is shimmery too! The ribbon is from Papertrey, and I added some little i-Rock pearls to the corners. I didn't put a sentiment on it, because I thought it could be used for so many different reasons.

Well that is all for now. Thanks for stopping by. I am off to start the dough for bread sticks!

I am using this card for this month's SEI Link Party too!

Warm Wishes

So today I decided to play along with the My Pink Stamper Saturday Challenge. The challenge is to create something with a winter theme. Here is what I came up with. I used the Create a Critter Cartridge. I made the little penguin and his igloo. The PP on the igloo is from Imaginisce, and the rub-ons are from there as well. It is a very simple card, but I thought it turned out so cute.
Well, I am off to use my new/used dryer! Very the things that thrill us moms.

Fall Beauty

Hi there! So glad you stopped by today. Today is QKR Thursday! If you haven't been to the QKR Stampede blog in the past week, you missed the announcement of the brand new QKR Stampede DT! Along the side of my blog you will find the list as well, but if you head on over to the QKR blog you will also see some of the new ladies have started posting eye candy for you already! I am so excited that Maribeth asked me to return for another term on the QKR Stampede team. I just love these stamps, and I am sooo excited to be working with this great team again. Oh, and a little heads up...we will be doing our first blog hop with this great new team on the 22nd! So be sure to stop by for the hop.
Today I wanted to share a card I made using the LEAF stamp I showed you last week. Last week I also mentioned I had stamped off a bunch of the leaves that you saw on the frame. I used the baby wipe technique to make them, and just loved the way they turned out. I was also asked to show you a tutorial sometime on how I did it, so...look for that in the near future. But for is the card I made. So this is probably one of the most simple cards ever, yet it turned out gorgeous. As you can see, I used one of the pretty LEAF images as the main focal point of the card. I did some fussy cutting on that, and layered it onto the brown rub-on. Yes...rub-on...the rest of the card is nothing but rub-ons. The pieces of color along the sides are rub-ons, and so is the sentiment. The brown side piece was actually one rub-on that I cut in 1/2 so I could use it in 2 places. That is it!

Well have a great rest of your week. Not sure if I will be back this weekend or not. We have some big plans here. Friday my DH is taking my older to girls to an amusement park (we have free passes!), Saturday we are going to take a tour of a local Chocolate factory...YUMMMM, and then a roller skating party. Don't worry I won't be would end up hurting Sunday my DH is going to the Bills football game...mostly for the fun of going with friends...cause we all know the Bills are NOT doing Have a great day!

Trick or Treat...

Hi there. Hope you are having a good week so far. Things have been a bit crazy here as The other night my dryer broke...that is a lot of fun with 5 people in the house! Yesterday my husband tried to fix it, but I think it maybe to the point of...well...done. I wish they would make appliances that worked like they did back in my parents' day. I remember the fridge we had growing up was like 30 years old before it finally went caput. Now, I am lucky to get 7 years out of my dryer! Thankfully, a friend of mine has a spare dryer they are offering me! What are the chances of that???!!! A FREE dryer! I will take it happily...even if we only get a couple years out of it. So hopefully by Saturday night I will have my "new"/used dryer so I can get back to my laundry. Not that I want to, but well frankly it has to be Well today I was able to get a quick card done. I made this card for three different challenges. this card is a little "busier" then I usually go with, but I actually liked the end results. First you love my new little easel thingy??? My mommy bought it for me the other day. LOL. Jess...ok...I started with this adorable witch image from QKR Stampede. I colored her with colored pencils. I decided to go with a green skin today. I started thinking of one of my favorite books Wicked when I did this. LOVE that book...and sorry to hurt any feelings, but the book is soooo much better then the musical. The musical is great, but the book is just wonderful. I added some stickles to the pumpkin, patch, and stars. The PP is all from the Target $1 spot. The ribbon is some free spiderweb ribbon I won on a Facebook contest. The little sentiment is actually cut out from the paper behind the witch.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Whimsie Doodles 52 - Trick-or-Treat
Simon Says Challenge - Halloween
What if Wednesday - Repeat Impressions - Sketch

A little pastel vintage

Hi there. I hope you all had a chance to get some stamping or card making in this weekend. I saw so many fun things advertised for World Card Making Day, but unfortunately they are mostly out West. =( I would love to attend one of those big events sometime. A girl can dream! Well I wanted to share a card I made for a facebook contest from the Greeting Farm on Saturday. They had a contest to post a card on their wall that has never been seen before. Well, now that the contest is over, I thought I would share it. I just love the way this turned out. I wish I could have gotten the lighting better, but it was rather cloudy here today, and I just couldn't get the lights to work for me. I am also using this card for the SEI Link Party! The background paper is from the Chick-a-dee collection and is called ga-ga. The buttons and ribbon are from the same collection. I also used my i-Rock at add some pink crystals to the corners. I also used the SEI chalk ink to distress the edges. The image is one of the Darling Sisters from The Greeting Farm. I colored her using colored pencils and gamsol.

Happy World Card Making Day!!!!

Happy World Card Making Day!!! I thought I would start today by sharing a card I made. I am hoping to get some card making day in, but we will My oldest DD had a friend sleep over last night, and I am hosting a Close to my Heart party tonight. I have never been to one, so I am looking forward to it. And what a great way to celebrate World Card Making Day then with friends! So...onto my card....
I made this card for this week's Cupcake Craft Challenge...which is Pink and Brown. I used this this pretty butterfly stamp that I won from some blog candy a couple weeks ago. I stamped it with brown ink, and cut it out into a circle. I layered it onto a brown circle. The bottom layer I ran through the cuttlebug, and stippled over with pink. I also stippled on the butterfly circle, and the sentiment circle. The sentiment is from a Sweet 'n Sassy set. I added some brown ribbon, and some pink gems. The card base is pink.
