Journal #2

Hello all -
Here is the first journal that I made using the glue. You are not able to see it, but the covers are slightly bent. I solved this problem by putting the covers between two large telephone books and then topped with a 20 lbs. weight.

Please, leave comments and let me know what you think. If you are interested in the measurements, please, let me know. I used Marcella 3D stickers that just so happened to go with the Anna Griffin paper I used. In any case, enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Monday all!

Hello all -

Today I have something new for you. I created a Chipboard Album and I think that it came out pretty nice. I made it for my sister whose birthday is today. She loves journals...especially handmade ones. So, take a look at it and let me know what you think. One thing that I did learn...using glue warps the chipboard, so when I made this one for her, I used a really strong adhesive & glue dots. Now, i am not sure if the "warp" came from the type of glue I used, but I prefer the adhesive.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey all....

Happy Monday!!! I am still in the mad dash mood trying to get all my shopping done by Thursday..so this is going to be a quick post.

This card I love because I used one of my favorite color combos - Red, Black, & White. The center image is from HeroArts Nature's Silhouettes. I used VersaMark ink and then put Opague White embossing powder on it and heat set it. I just love the way it came out. I am not sure if you can see it and if the scanner picks it up, but on the lower left hand corner, above the word sentiment, I punched out a snowflake and then used some Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter on it.

So much for the short post huh?...LOL!
Thanks for stopping by!

Okay all....

I'm feeling like Mrs. Claus and I have a surprise for you all....

Here's the thing. I have some extra goodies in my stash here in NYC that I
thought would be a great way to share it with you all. Remember, I don't have a digital camera (hope that Santa gives me one) so I am trying to scan the images but it's not working...so I am going to list the items. In the goodie bag there will be the following items:
~ Memento Dew Drop Ink Pads
~ T-Ruler
~ Tim Holtzs Alcohol Inks (set of 3 in package)
~ Making Memories Brads
~ Making Memories Eyelets
~ Chipboard Letters
~ 3 Spools of Ribbon
~ 20 Sheets of 6 x 6 paper
~ Set of 8 Blank Cards made by YOURS TRULY!

Here's what you have to do. You have to leave me a comment on this post with your 3 TOP WISH LIST items for this Christmas. It doesn't have to be scrapbook, or craft related. On Saturday, December 26th, I will randomly select a name of the winner. On Sunday, I will post the winner's name. Any questions? Okay, so you have until December 25th - 12:00 am EST. to post a comment....ON THIS POST....

Good luck!
And thanks for stopping by!

Celebrate the Season!

Happy TGIF all -
Can you believe it?....that next week, at this time it will be CHRISTMAS DAY!!!!! Wow....I can not wait! I love this time of year especially for my kids. My hubby and I got them a really big gift this Christmas and I can not wait to see the looks on their faces when they open the gift all together.
In any case, this is going to be a really quick post since I still have some last minute gifts to get. This card was simple. Base card measures 4.25 x 5.5. Pattern paper .25 smaller and then the scalloped mat with sentiment in the middle. I hope you like it! Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

Wishing You and Yours a Merry Holiday Season!

Hi all...
Happy Wednesday!!! Eight more days til Christmas!!! Time sure is flying by...and on that note....here's a quickcard that you can put together in minutes. The base card measures 4.25 x 5.5 . The 2nd layer is CuttleBugged using the Swiss Dot Embossing Folder. I lovethese colors because they are not the traditional holiday colors but they are becoming more popular now.

Hope your holiday shopping, creating, and baking is going well. As always, thanks for stopping by!

Hello all-
I still can't believe that in 10 days it will be Christmas. Where did the time go? Does anybody else feel that way too? I am very excited about this holiday because my youngest daughter Logan who is three, is totally understanding Christmas. She loves the lights and the tree and all the shiny stuff that comes with this time of year. She even has a list that she made for Santa and everyday she says, " Momma, I was nice today; not naughty so tell Santa"....how cute is she?

Well, today's card is just as sweet as my Logan. It has one of her favorite colors (PINK) on the card. This was a super simple card to make - pattern paper, stamped image, some foam adhesive and a word sentiment - you can't get any easier.
I hope you like it and thanks so much for stopping by!

Merriest Wishes

Hello everyone....
I know, I know....it's been a longgggg time. Alot of things have been going on from me losing my camera at Radion City Music Hall at their Christmas Show, to my laptop dying, and then my scanner dying as well. When it rains...it pours! So, I guess you know what I have on my list to Santa....a new digital camera, new scanner, and new laptop....not in that order...LOL! I was able to borrow a scanner from a friend who has two, but boy, scanning a card is so different from actually taking a picture. You lose the dimension and charater of the card. But in any case, I decided to scan all the cards that I have been creating and when Santa brings me my new camera on the 25th, I will take all new photos....I have been a very "nice" girl this year...(wink)

Here's my card for today. I hope you like. I would love to hear and see all the projects and card you have been making lately. Thanks again for stopping by!!!
