Happy Birthday Brad!

I quickly made this card today. It was a quick one for sure. I used another one of my new Close to my Heart stamp sets with Colorbox Fluid Chalk ink. If you've never heard of these inks, you have to try them. They're amazing and very pigmented. The colours are so vibrant too. I'm amazed everytime I use it. My favourite colour at the moment is the "Dark Peony" - I fall in love every single time I use it. Keep any eye out on Scrapbook Steals, I bought all of mine on there.

Thanks for stopping by! I'm hoping to post my very first video tutorial soon! My boyfriend's Mom has been telling me I need to keep up with my blog and start posting videos. So, if you have any requests, please feel free to contact me or comment below.


Can you say Coral?

My boyfriend's Mom asked if I could make her coworker a congratulations card for wedding. This is what I came up with. There's a lot of coral on it but I think it works. I used my new Close to my Heart stamp set to make it. I also used pearl ex to give the card a little bit of shine. You can see a little bit of it on the stamped doilies.

Thanks for looking :)

I'm going to Maui!

Yahoo! I'm so blessed to get the chance to go to Maui with my boyfriend and his family. His sister, Marie, planned everything and got us a crazy great deal too! We head there for the last week of August for 10 days. I'm super excited. Of course, I said thanks by giving them a handmade card :)

Here's a side view.
I went to a huge craft sale and there was a lady that was selling a whole bunch of riley the moose stamps for only $2 a piece! I only grabbed 2 stamps because I had already spent most of my money at other booths.

I will be posting more pictures of some cards I've made recently.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Belated International Card Day!

So sorry for the delay. I've been super busy the past couple of weeks. I've had so many things happen at once. I finally relaxed in my pajamas this past weekend and cleaned my craft space up. It still needs a lot of work though. It's currently located in the basement which is currently unfinished. So there's no dry wall and I have cement flooring which is extremely cold! I'll post a picture later tonight when I get home.

What did you guys do for international card making day? I didn't even know it was international card day. And it do happen that my friend, Marie, and her mom decided to make cards that same day! It was Marie's idea to get together and create 4 cards each and show each other how we made it. All together each of us made 24 cards! Here's a picture

Something amazing just happened!

I finally extended my copic marker collection!!! I went from having a little over 50 to almost 300! I couldn't resist. There was a sweet lady who was selling them because she didn't really use them anymore. So she was selling them all for $300! It was totally worth the investment. Of course I have a lot of duplicates, I'm going to wrap them and give it was a gift to my boyfriend's mom. She wants to get into them but could fork the money to buy them.

Here's my first project after getting them. I still have to finish it. This card is for my anniversary with my boyfriend

Just a quick post

Hi everyone! It's been a long day. Just thought I'd stop by and post a card I made a while back for my Dad's birthday.

Current Project: Update

Hi everyone!

After completeing my trial run of my desktop calendars, I decided that it was way too big for a desk and it wasn't standing up by it's self. I think I need to change the size and figure out a way to keep it up. My trial calendar is a 8.5x11" cardstock folding in half. I will figure something out and I'll update you guys. I also decided to personalize each calendar some how. I was thinking of changing their birthday month so it sticks out. I'm planning at the moment and If you saw my sheet of paper, you'd think I'm crazy. There's scribbles all over the place. I should try and buy a sketch book or something to have all my planning and sketches in one place. I'll try and take pictures of the process - hopefully! I always forget to take pictures.

Toodles, for now!
