Christmas Wreath

Hello, today I finally had a chance to re- do my wreath. My old was was at least 8+ years old and the flowers I had on there were outdated and faded( poor wreath) so I had some ornaments I bought last year on clearance and decided to give the wreath a makeover !! I really loved how this turned out, I was thinking of using hot glue but decided on thin wire just incase I needed to replace anything . Loving the sparkle!!

Christmas Time is Here

Happy Wednesday !!! I am so glad this week is half over, i have so many crafty ideas i want to get done!! This year i might send out fewer cards but instead of have everyone the same, i think im gonna mix it up a bit! Here is one of my first cards i wanna share with you today. I love the bright colors of this new Recollections stack at Michaels! My stamp is from the dollar bin at Michaels, and the day i bought it all Christmas was 50% off plus i had an extra 20% off! SCORE!!! i did a little coloring with my prismas on the lil tree. Everyone have a great week! cant wait to share some more!!

Wise men

I cant believe how fast Christmas is getting here!
So excited !!!
I love doing Christmas projects!
The cards i am sharing today are for a co-worker. These came out very elegant,the wise men stamp is from Stampendeous. I embossed the image with black embossing powder, and i was very happy with the results. Background paper is from a misc pack i got from Wal Mart ages ago, ribbon from Michaels.
i hope my co-worker likes them ! Merry Christmas everyone!

EAD Designs Challenge

Happy Turkey week everyone! I have a feeling this is gonna be a great week, not only cause i have a short work week, and the fact that its Thanksgiving this week {gobble gobble} im anxious to get back to my craft table, from being out of state and being sick, my table has been lonley. I did manage to get in there last night to create my first Christmas card of the season for the EAD Designs color challenge. I absolutely love how my card turned out. Who would have thought to add yellow to a Christmas card. My trees were inspired by their Funky Christmas Tags Stickerz. Papers are from Basic Grey and sentiment from the dollar bin at JoAnns. You can kind of see i added flecky, is that a word, glitter to the tops of the trees.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Love Cloudy Days

My most favorite thing is rain, and an overcast day! There's nothing like the feeling of cozy jammies, hot coffee and either crafting or reading!
I found these two stamps, umbrella and the sentiment at the Michaels dollar spot. I thought they would go great together! For the raindrops I used embossing powder to make it look like water! { my fav part}
I also made my envelope with the liner to match. Finished card is 4X4

Halloween Part Two

Is everyone having a ghouly day? Fangtastic! Just wanted to share a couple of 3X3 cards i made for some folks at work. Aren't the stamps cute? These are from the $ spot at Michaels. I colored them in with my prismas and used baby oil to blend the color , thanks Erin from Erin Lee Creative for the tutorial! I also stamped the cutey bats onto kraft cardstock to create my background.
Well im off to indulge in some Halloween candy !

Happy Halloween !!

Happy Halloween !!! I hope everyone is having a spooky day! I can't wait to take my lil pumpkins trick or treating later on! Maybe grab a hot caramel apple cider from Starbucks for mom on the way !
Today i want to share a banner i made for work,I actually made 3 total, but banners are a funny thing to take a picture of. Dont you just love the spider. All the leters and the spider i covered in Martha Stewarts Onyx black glitter {love} I ran each letter through my xyron and poured the glitter, no need to wait for any glue to dry! Fabulous idea i got from HSN 's craft day. Well its off for tricks and treats, have a BOOtiful Day !!

Celebrating Fall

I love everything about fall, now only if it would cool down a bit outside. I decided to make my desk at work a little festive for Fall, by adding vinyl to a mini pumpkin! I cut out my initial with my cricut using the Storybook cartridge, and for the polka dots I simply used a circle punch. I really liked the way this turned out! Have a great week!

Hi everyone, what a great Fathers Day weekend this was! Spending time with the hubby is always great! Last week was also my boys last day of school, i wanted them to give a little thank -you to their teachers, I knew just what i wanted to do after seeing this idea over at Splitcoast Stampers. I had bought a neat trimmer at Costco some time ago and havent used it yet, perfect chance to get it out. My new trimmer can cut, perforate, wavy cut and score. I was really excited how this turned out!! Apples are from Hello Kitty and paper is from DCWV, Thank you stamp is from My Pink Stamper (she has great stamps)!!
I had done another one for my oldest music teacher and instead of an apple i used a treble clef.(totally forgot to take a pic)

I hope you guys like this and head on over to Alexs blog You Had Me At Craft and check out her great project and all the great projects of the ladies linking up! have a great week!!

She is cut at 3 1/2 inches,and i used the "seeing spots" folder for the cuttlebug for the cherry insides, bacground is from Gypsy Wanderings , inked edges and ribbon from Michaels! "Sweet" sentiment is from My Pink Stamper. I hope you guys like it, and wish me luck!! now its off to figure out another challenge!!!
