A little trick

I found a fun new product to use on my cards - it's called "Scribbles" dimensional paint and it is in the craft/paint isle for a great price! I looked at the dimensional paints in the scrapbooking department of my local craft store but didn't want to pay so much for such a little bit of paint. Then I wandered over to the paint isle, I was thinking about that great puffy paint that I used on EVERYTHING when I was little, and I found this stuff. It's basically the same idea, but you don't have to heat it to raise it. I used it on this card for the dots around the scallops and for the snow on the roof. You can get any color - I used Iridescent, White Mist here. Paper and image from LAD. Such a fun find!

Just a quick post, this uses Holiday Lane from LAD - isn't this snowman the cutest?! I just love him. I'm on a mission to use up my scraps that are taking up too much space. With a little bit of ribbon and ink - scraps become like new again! So fun to use them in new ways! Have a marvelous weekend. I have lots on my weekend to-do list. And even more to get done today so I can do all the fun stuff tomorrow. We are hopefully getting some family pictures taken, I hope the weather people are correct in their prediction tomorrow. We are taking them outside....

It's been a while...

sorry for the lack of posting lately - I've been super busy - with what? you may ask. well - lot of things! Here is a fun little gift box. I found the box in my stash and then started altering it. It was lots of fun. I used LAD Party Animals for the images and that fun little squiggly thing around the cupcake - - what is that called?!?!?!?! Anyone?!?!?!?! A big bow with a super big button in the middle (that could double as a bow on a headband for your favorite little baby) Hopefully things will slow down a little and I"ll have more time at the computer!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

A baby Quilt

This is my most recent crafty project. I love this little blanket, it is a good sign when you want to keep the gift for yourself right? This pictures isn't a good one, but it is the only one I got before I shipped it off to it's new owner. My to-do list just gets longer and longer as the holidays get closer. Do you like to make gifts for the holidays?

Circle sentiments

such a fun set! As I was assembling this set, I could wait to play with it. I love the sentiments, the font is great and the images are just too cute. I used a wide twill self-adhesive ribbon for the yellow across the bottom of the card and then started adding circles and flowers. So fun!

Party Animals

I love this new birthday set - it was so fun, once I started stamping and making cards, I couldn't stop. For the first card I stamped the little birdie on a scrap of yellow paper, and cut him out. Then I stamped the hat on red and cut that out. I then stamped the bird again on my white image panel and layered the paper pieces over that. I used my crop-a-dile, (which hasn't seen enough use lately, so be prepared to see lots of use in the near future) to punch the holes and set the big eyelets and tied the ribbon thru the eyelets.
Next was the cupcake image - I love this little image, and the little frame to put it in, is just yummy too! For this card, I used up scraps that were sitting on my table from another project. I also added Shimmerz to the cupcake paper and the candle. I love this product - you can go to this blog http://shimmerzpaints.blogspot.com/ to check it out. It is an amazing product. I used my water color brush to apply it to my cupcake. (I also used it on the birdie's party hat) It gives your project the perfect amount of glitter and shine. Check it out - you'll want to get some too! (I've been using it on almost every card I've made lately) back to the card at hand - I used the other (non-brush) end of the paint brush to add little dots of sprinkles to the top of my cupcake. Mmmm, I want a cupcake. Have a great day!

New Release

Aren't these new papers fabulous!?!?!?! Did you see them all in the newsletter from LAD? I only used a few of the wonder choices they have. I used the French Floral collection - redish print, the tan paisley, and the green solid, only it's not really a solid - there is so much more depth to it. check out the rest of the design team and LAD release page for more details!
