Migrain yesterday - Scrapbook page today!

Sorry I didn't post yesterday. I had a really bad migraine. To the point that I couldn't function at all! But I'm back today and I have a scrapbook page to share with you. This scrapbook page could be used for several different occasions. "A star is born" "Our super star" are a couple that come to mind. I used the large and small star punches and punched out different color and sized stars! I love how bright this layout is.
 Here is the left page.
 Here is the right page.
 And here is a close up of a star that I made using our thick window sheets and our big shot and stars big shot die. I added a red corduroy brad to the center and a blue small star. I love that I can make my own embellishments that you would pay big bucks for in the craft store.
I hope you like it. Have a great day and happy stampin!

Another Christmas card

Happy Thurs............... oh I mean Wednesday. Man what a busy week and it's only Wed. I really thought it was Thursday with how busy it's been lately.
Today I'm going to share a Christmas card sample with you, that we did at a workshop last night. When I made the card I had our hostess in mind and when I told her that and then pulled out the card to show everyone, you wouldn't believe how excited she got. She loved it so much  that this will be her Christmas card this year.
I chose non-traditional Christmas colors and I have to tell you I love these colors.
The other part about this card that I absolutely love (and if you know me, you know what I'm going to say) is that there is glitter all over this card. I love how it sparkles!
This picture does this card, NO justice.
I love the little hint of old olive with the ribbon. And I'm not sure if you can see it or not but I also added the self-adhesive rhinestones after the "merry". I wish you could all see this card in person to see how pretty it really is.

That's all the time I have today,
Happy stampin!

Another Baby Shower card

Today I have another baby card  for you. Again this is probably not you're normal baby shower card. I used darker colors again for this one. I do think that the glitter in the turtles help to make it a bit softer though.
Pretty simple card, I used fox and friends stamp set. I really like this paticular stamp set. I used old olive and always artichoke together.
It's supposed to be a beautiful day today, I hope you get to get out and enjoy it.
Have a great day! Happy stampin.

2nd vintage ornament scrapbook page

Happy Saturday! The other day I showed you a scrapbook page I did with our decor stencils. Like I said the other day, I ended up doing a 2nd page to it (because that's just me, I like symmetry.).
So I thought I would share that with you today! So here is the 2nd page, very similar to the first.
 And here is both pages together. This 2 page scrapbook layout is available in my etsy store! Go on over and check it out. This would make a fantastic present for anybody who likes to take pictures or anybody who likes to scrapbook. All they'll have to do is throw in their pictures.
I hope you have a fantastic day and happy stampin!

Friends Never Fade

Good Friday morning to you! What a busy week it's been, how about you? Today I have a "friends" card for you. Do you have one of those really special friendships in you life? This card would fit perfectly. I really like the color combination of marina mist, crumb cake, whisper white and daffodil delight.
I really like the giant "scallops" I made using a circle punch and taping them next to each other. On the crumb cake card stock, I used versa mark to give it that tone on tone affect.

Well that's it for today.
I hope you have a great day and happy stampin!

Happy Vetern's Day! and a Christmas scrapbook page

Hi Everyone,
Happy Veteran's day to you! I hope you've all had the opportunity to take a minute and really be thankful for all the men and women who have served our country or still are serving. I'm very thankful for them and their families for giving me the freedom that I have, even to the simple things like enjoy a hobby like stamping without anybody telling me it's forbidden. We truly are very blessed to live in the country we live in and that might not be the case without all of our soldiers.

Ok off of my soap box and onto the project of the day! A scrapbook page! I haven't scrapbooked for about a year! I love scrapbooking and when I was getting my scrapbook ready to go to a workshop tonight, I realized how much I missed doing it. So after I was done packing for the workshop, I decided to do a quick page and I have to say that I really love it!
I used chocolate chip, real red, baja blue and wild wasabi. I also used our ornament stencils from our decor elements line as well as the big shot for the words. If you look closely you can see that I also used our shimmer paint and one of the stencils on the chocolate chip card stock as well as on the baja and wasabi photo boarders. I'll probably make a matching page to go with it, because I'm not a huge fan of 1 page layouts. I need the symmetry of a 2 page layout! Crazy I know.
The best part is that I have a page already to go for this Christmas, so all I'll have to do is slap in some pictures!

I hope you all have a great day and happy stampin!

Not your traditional baby card.

Happy Wednesday to you! I can't believe that it's already Wednesday. Yesterday was such a busy, fun, jammed packed day for me. But I am glad it's over too. I did art class yesterday at Kayla's school and those kids are so much fun. I love how the really get into their art projects. Unfortunately I can't show pictures on-line without parents permission so I can't share me fun with you. But I can share their projects, so maybe every once in a while I'll share with you.
 Today I have a little bit of picking up to do around the house. I'm thinking dishes, a little laundry and a quick vacuum around the house. Then I have to make a baby shower card for this weekend.

So today I have a baby card to show you. This card is not your traditional baby card, let me explain. A friend of mine had a baby back in August ( I know, bad friend who is just getting to give her a gift). My friend's favorite color is purple. I didn't have any purple designer paper besides the new concord crush so I paired it with basic grey. So needless to say it's a lot darker then most baby cards would be, but I think she'll like it and that's what really matters.
I used the designer pack of paper that you can get as a level 1 hostess (only $150.00 in sales needed to qualify). I also used the new concord crush twill ribbon. I'm not sure if you can see them or not, but I also added 3 rhinestone jewels to the bottom right corner. I used the hippopotamus from pun fun. I think she's super cute. I colored her in with my blender pen and ink ( I think my blender pen was pretty dried out though, which makes the color not blend so well). I'm off to do my chores.
Well I hope you have a great day and happy stampin!

Traditional Christmas

I hope everybody is having a great day! Today I have a sample for you that we will be doing at a workshop on Thursday. They'll be making this card and a great little candy holder, using what else but the BIG SHOT!

On this card I used the new stamp set Contempo Christmas. I love how the ornament goes with our ornament punch.
I used cherry cobbler which I have to say is probably my new favorite red for Christmas cards. It's a nice deep red. I paired it with old olive, crumb cake and whisper white.

I added a stamped ornament and the sentiment "Christmas is love with all the trimmings".
This card is available in my etsy shop, go check it out!

I'm off to go teach art class at Kayla's school. I hope you all have a great day. Happy stampin!

Just believe - It's been a LOOONG time

Hey everybody, how are you? It's been quite awhile hasn't it! I had some things I went through, but I'm feeling much better and the stampin mojo is BACK double time so watch out!

Here is a card I made last night. I love how soft it looks! I added just a hint of glitter on the tips of the flowers can you see it? What do you think of the color combo? It's whisper white, crumb cake, baja breeze (so happy this color is back!) and just a hint of night of navy and pear pizzaz. This card will be available  in my etsy store later today, along with some other fantastic cards including a Christmas card set! Go check them out. You can just click on the link on the right of my blog.
