Hey everyone! For those of you who have been wondering when would I ever make another new video?!!? Well…
I HAVE A NEW VIDEO UP ON YOUTUBE!!! :)
I made the cool mixed media ornament card that you see below for my new post AND new video over on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Blog, but….as with all things I have to leave you wanting to check out their blog, right? So, if you want to check out the new video, you either have to already be one of my subscribers or head over to their blog to check it out. :) See how that works?
But, isn’t it pretty?! Makes you kinda wanna check out how I made it, huh? Hahhah!!
I really DO hope that you’ll check it out. Although I tried recording using my HandyCam instead of my camera and I think I’ll go back to my camera. Not all that thrilled with the Handycam. :/
Hi everyone! I’m so super excited today!! As a representative of theScrapbook Adhesives 3L® Design Team I have a card featured on the Spellbinders Holiday Blog Hop!! How fun is that?! This is a super big deal with an opportunity for you all to win LOTS of awesome prizes. You DON’T want to miss out.
But first? Here’s my card. I had the best time making this one:
The patterned paper is from Pink Paislee and called Snow Village. Isn’t it awesome? I love the colors and the graphic design. The die from Spellbinders® is Nestabilities Labels Forty and I just love it.
So click on the photo below to be taken over to the Scrapbook Adhesives Blog so that you can see the other photos by my awesome teamie, Michele Kovack and so that you can enter the giveaway!
I’m using one of Jamie’s Bloom Girl stamps, Sophie, all done up for Christmas. I know!! Christmas?!! So soon!! Where has the year gone? But, here it is, almost Thanksgiving and we’re busy designing cards for the holidays.
The Bloom Girls Design Team will have our cards featured on the Prima blog this week for their 12 Cards of Christmas so make sure that you check out their blog this week, as well. It will be filled with inspiration from all of the very talented designers.
Back to my card for today! Here she is. :)
Even though this is a pic of the FULL card, I’d still loooooooove for you to stop by the blog to see the full post and the close-ups. I’m really pleased with how this card turned out. It’s such a non-traditional Christmas card. Even the papers that I used weren’t Christmas-y! Using Christmas colors is a great way to bring that holiday touch to a a maybe not-so obviously Christmas looking card.
I wish you all a fabulous week and can’t wait to hear what you all think about the 12 Cards of Christmas.
Hello my friends! Wishing all of you a very Happy Veterans Day! I’m over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today sharing a card that I made for this Veterans Day.
I decided to make a card based on poppies and the poem “In Flanders Fields” by John McCrae. I love poppies so much (since they’re so prolific here in California), but just knowing that they have such a historical significance makes them so much more special. I used one of my very favorite Penny Black stamps Blooming Garden (30-155) and gave it a little more dimension.
Here’s a special peek of my Veterans Day card:
If I could give this card to each one of the people that served before me, with me, and after me…I would. God bless each and every one of you for your service and sacrifice to this great country and to all of our allies as well.
Hey crafty friends! I’m up again on the Bloom Girls Blog today with a new card that I just LOVE! I call it a Watercolor Window card because I created a teeny little window from a resin piece. Whatever is within that window is in color. Everything outside of the window is in black & white.
It’s a little tricky to explain or maybe I’m just MAKING it hard to understand. But, it’s very cool. I love seeing all the black & white in watercolor. It’s so unique. And just that POP! of color really sets the whole thing off. No other embellishments this time. Just the resin piece. It seemed like enough to me. It’s easy to go overboard, y’know?
So here’s a sneak peek at my Watercolor Window card:
And, as always, you know the full size image can easily be found by clicking the link up above or HERE (<-click).
I cannot ever thank you enough for your support and your love. So thank you for reading. Even if there’s just one of you. <3
It was easy, messy (so my style!) and can be used in a few ways. You could use this piece either for home decor OR as part of your journal if you use these style of journal boards. I have to tell ya, that before I added the “mummy gauze” and the chipboard “boo” letters the background was just so awesome! And it was JUST Gelatos® over Gesso (with a little water, dried, then rubbed again). All the different colors just blend so beautifully together. When they say “Mix and Match”? They mean it.
Hi crafty friends! I hope that you’re all doing awesome this Wednesday. :) I have a post up on the Bloom Girls Design Team blog today featuring a Tag I made. I really ventured way, way out of my comfort zone on this one. Way. Hahhah!!
Whenever I use my Bloom Girls stamps I always try to think of new ways to use them and this was definitely a new way…for ME! I’m not a Copic colorer (I think that’s a word). In fact, I sold almost ALL of my Copic markers, since I mostly use my beloved Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Stamper’s Big Brush Pens for almost everything. Those or my Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. I’m just not an alcohol marker kinda gal. Actually, all that blending? Scary stuff. Heebie-jeebies! But, I decided that with the tag I was going to make that I would use the 25 or so (maybe less) markers that I have and USE THEM!!
Hey there! It’s a New Card Monday!! I’m so proud of the one that I have to share on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today. I gotta tell ya, I’m not always super thrilled by the cards that I make. Sometimes I like parts of them, sometimes I like the technique, or sometimes I wish I could just throw them away (it happens), but I really do LOVE the way that this card turned out. Lots of cool stuff going on with it, too.
Here’s your sneak peek:
This card is really dimensional, shiny, shimmery and super pretty. I hope that you’ll all go over to the Scrapbook Adhesives blog to see the whole thing. :)
I’ll also have a UStream this week with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® THIS Wednesday at 6:00 PM PST. But check out THEIR blog just in case things change. Maybe “New Card Monday” will be something I’ll have to do every week….hmmm….I’ll give it some thought.
Hi everyone! I bet you’re wondering what the heck that post title means, huh…”My New Journey Begins? Whaaat? Well, it’s a very literal thing for me. I’m starting something brand new that I hope will take me new places and allow me to share some awesome new products with you.
So. What is Fun Stampers Journey, right? Well, it’s a little bit like Stampin’ Up in that it’s a direct sales company for stampers, crafters, and all creative types. and there are different levels of compensation depending on what you do IFyou sign up to be a Journey Coach (kind of like a Demonstrator). But, you can also enjoy the many benefits of Fun Stampers Journey just by hostessing a party from home, online, or ordering from the catalog. The compensation for the Journey Coaches is AWESOME and for the hostesses it’s really wonderful, too.
I made a video yesterday when all my stuff came because I was so super excited and I wanted to show all the awesome goodies that you get!
