Just another day at the Store, Renee had her All Occasion Card Class and I got to see some customers and chatted with lots of peeps! After work i went to see Heather. We split a chicken cutlet parmesan hero for dinner and watched Joy, well, the end of Joy. After that I came home and got Winston and settled in for a nice evening of TV. Sometimes I just need to be mindless and TV is the best escape! I need to mix it up a little, I think that I need a trip into the city soon! 😀

Today it’s Paper Craft Crew Challenge day! This week we have a Tic-Tac-Toe for you…

I started my card by stamping the images from the Hero Arts Color Layering Seahorse Photopolymer Stamp Set in Orange Soda, Soft Apricot, Butter Bar, Soft Vanilla, Wet Cement and Tide Pool and cut them out with the Coordinating Frame Cuts. To make my background I stamped the Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain Background Stamp in Soft Brown directly onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My file folder is created with the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Tabs Die and a piece of Putty, I added a piece of Seam Binding Ribbon along the bottom and it’s adhered to the card with E-Z Runner. Next I die cut the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Filmstrip Die from a piece of Tropical Sea and adhered it to the card with more E-Z Runner. The stamped images are then added with E-Z Runner and 3D Foam Squares. My greeting is from the Hero Arts Many Everyday Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Soft Brown along the top edge of the filmstrip. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear and Marigold Sequins finish the card! Love the sea images against the woodgrain, you know me, I think that woodgrain goes with everything! LOL! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Tic-Tac-Toe challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and let’s see yours in the gallery! Thanks very much for your visit today! Have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂

Mojo Monday 486

Mojo Monday 486

Another pleasant day at the Store! Renee, Angie and I all worked on our respective projects in the morning. Renee had a class at 1:00 and one of our customers is a LuLaroe Rep so she had a Pop-Up event at the Store. Lots of people came in and bought things. I left around 2:30 and came home to find Taylor at my house. We chatted and waited for my friend Jim to come over. I’m helping him scan in pictures for an album that he’s working on. We had dinner and watched some TV before he left to pick up his daughter. I have been meaning to call Danielle and catch up with her and I finally did. I still miss her so much! Today I have my usual projects to get done, always a labor of love! 😀

It’s Monday so you know what that means, time for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch…

Yes, I played with yet some more of the new Lawn Fawn release for today’s card! My images and greeting are from the Lawn Fawn Sewn with Love Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped my images in Jet Black and colored them in with Copics. They are cut out with the Coordinating Lawn Cuts. My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Purple Hearts. I used the Lawn Fawn Zig Zag Rectangles, Squares and Circles to cut out a piece of Lawn Fawn Gummy Bears 12×12 Paper, Chinese Red, Tropical Sea and Wildflower Honey. The Patterned Paper is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Next up is a piece of Ballerina Pink with some Yellow Embroidery Floss wrapped around it. On top of that I adhered the rest of the shapes and stamped the Lovely on the Yellow Circle. The Sew is stamped in Jalapeño and cut out again with the Coordinating Lawn Cuts. I adhered all of the images with 3D Foam Squares and added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sea Breeze, Pink Blush, Marshmallow and Sparkling Clear Sequins and the card is done! I think that the patterned paper and the Zig Zag Dies really add to the sewing theme of the card! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see what the other Design Team members have made to inspire you and add your card to the gallery! Thanks so much for starting your week off with me! Have a magnificent Monday! 🙂

Happy Fab Jar

Happy Fab Jar

Time for the weekend peeps! We have had a few nice days and it’s to get colder today and we are to have rain, thanks Linda! LOL! My friend in Chicago sends the weather this way, I tell her only send the good stuff! I had a nice visit with my friend Marissa yesterday at the Store, she came by to pick up her Lawn Fawn goodies and we chatted and she looked through some of my early work, we had a good laugh! Renee left a little early to have dinner with her kids, it makes me very happy when she gets to spend time with them! I left around 6:00 and had dinner with my Parents and then cleaned a little before my friend Jim came over. We had a nice evening, listening to music and watching videos. Today there is a one day crop so I’ll get to spend a little time with the ladies! 😀

I of course had to play with some of the new Lawn Fawn goodies yesterday and I have to say that one of my favorite new sets is Fab Flowers. I stamped a bunch of them in Lawn Fawn Ballet Slippers, Bubblegum, Fresh Lavender, Juice Box, Sunflower, Carrot, Freshly Cut Grass, Noble Fir, Merman and Peacock. They are all cut out with the Coordinating Dies and put aside. Next I stamped the jar from the Lawn Fawn How You Bean? Photopolymer Stamp Set in Minty Fresh. I used the Add On Dies to cut out the Jar, a piece of Acetate and a piece of Solar White 80lb. On the back panel I stamped the stems in Jalapeño Ink. To make the shaker I used the same die that I used to cut out the jar to cut out a piece of 1/4″ Fun Foam. Each layer is adhered with 1/8″ Scor-Tape, I added some Pretty Pink Posh Share Kindness Mix Sequins and some Clear Seed Beads before adding the back panel. For my card base I used Neenah Solar White 100lb Card Stock and a piece of the Watercolor Wishes Petite Paper cut out with the Lawn Fawn Zig Zag Rectangles Stackables. My greeting is from the Lawn Fawn Happy, Happy, Happy Photopolymer Stamp Set, I stamped the Happy in Juice Box and the everything in Peacock. The happy is cut out with the Coordinating Lawn Cuts. I adhered the jar the card and then used more 1/4″ Fun Foam and E-Z Runner to adhered the flowers, the butterfly and happy are adhered with 3M Foam Tape. I really do love the flowers and Lawn Fawn Inks, it’s a nice simple layered set made even more fun with the jar! I hope that you like my card for today! Thank you for visiting today! Have a super Saturday! 🙂

I can definitely say that I’m enjoying the weather, it was in the 50’s yesterday! I’ll take that! I had a nice quiet day at the Store. Worked on projects, saw customers and spoke to friends. My Lawn Fawn order will be arriving today. It will all get checked in and packaged up to be sent out with the help of my friend Sue! I’m happy that she is coming, there are a lot of packages to get together! I spoke to my friend Jim on the way home from work and then had dinner with my Parents. I sat and watched this week’s episode of This is Us and then Andrew came by for a visit! His group Satellite Lane has an album coming out soon and he gave me a little preview! It’s great and I’ll be sure and let you all know when it’s available! After he left I watched a movie and then called it a very late evening. Can’t wait to get to the store today and get all of those goodies sent out! 🙂

I have a fun set of cards to share with you for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

I used the Altenew Painted Flowers and Halftone Hello Photopolymer Stamp Sets to make four one layer cards! The hello on all of them is stamped in Velvet and Jet Black Crisp Ink using my Mini MISTI. I then stamped the flowers randomly on each of the cards using Jet Black, Frayed Leaf, Blush, Rouge, Crimson and Velvet Crisp Inks. After the flowers were stamped I added the second parts of the sentiments. They needed a little something more and I was going to use sequins but I really wanted to keep them nice and flat, easy for mailing, so I added some dots with my Uniball Gold Signo Gel Pen. It gave them that something more without adding any bulk to them! I really am happy with the way they came out and can’t wait to give them to someone as a gift! I hope that you enjoyed my cards for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thank you very much for stopping by! Have a crafty Thursday! 🙂

Happy Wednesday! The warm temps have subsided for a while, it’s not cold, just crisp! I managed to have another productive day at the Store. I made a few cards and caught up on some paperwork. My Parent’s bought Daniel up to see me for a bit. I was eating lunch when they got there so he helped me finish my Wendy’s Chicken Nuggets, his favorite! He wanted to take some selfies but he said that we had make funny faces…

Such a silly little boy, but I’m right there with him! LOL! After work I got to see him again and we played hide and seek which he thought was great fun! Today I think that Renee might be taking the day off so I’ll be getting ready for the Lawn Fawn order to arrive tomorrow! Can’t wait to get all of those goodies shipped out to you! 😀

If it’s Wednesday then it’s time for a new Paper Craft Crew challenge…

I played with the February My Monthly Hero Kit again to make my card for today! The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the clouds in Memento Tuxedo Black and the rain in Soft Pool to make my background panel and that is adhered over a piece of Canvas Texture Sky with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The single cloud, sun, star and rainbow are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Copics. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out and added some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to them. My greeting is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of 48lb Vellum that I cut out with the Hero Arts Cloud Infinity Dies. I added the star, sun and rainbow to the Vellum cloud with 3D Foam Squares and then added more to the back to attach it to the card. I then added the single cloud with some more 3D Foam Squares and a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins to finish it off! I love that MMH Set, so many neat and different images in it! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and let’s see yours in the gallery!

It was the most glorious day here yesterday! It got up to 65 degrees and it was nice and sunny! We had a fun day at the Store. Renee and Angie had their tag class, I worked on projects and catching up on things. I did sneak out early so I could go for a ride in the convertible! Oh how I love that! After some pizza for dinner Taylor and I watched a movie and then ran to Target. Today apparently is a Holiday, I will be at the store! Renee has her Home Decor Class today, more fun! 😀

It is Monday and that means time for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch…

I’m really into the teals and purples lately and that is evident on today’s card! My base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Concord & 9th Beautiful Words Photopolymer Stamp Set to stamp the outline word beautiful onto a piece of Purple Hearts with some Lawn Fawn Sugarplum Ink repeatedly to create a background and adhered it to the card. On top of that is a piece of Bo Bunny Believe Devotion 12×12 Paper with a piece of American Crafts Peacock Glitter Tape adhered across the bottom. I slipped a piece of American Crafts Purple Baker’s Twine behind the stamped background and tied it in a bow. My flagged piece of Tropical Sea has the solid beautiful heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder across the top and the YOU is die cut from Cyber Grape using the Concord & 9th Beautiful You Dies. It’s adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My butterfly is cut from more Cyber Grape using the Concord & 9th Floral and Flutter Dies. I adhered it with a sliver of a 3D Foam Square and fluffed up the wings and antenna. Some Pretty Pink Posh Enchanted Garden Sequins complete the card. I still love that butterfly after all of this time and the colors, some of my current faves! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s card and enter yours in the gallery! Thank you for starting your week off with me! Have a marvelous Monday! 🙂

Dance in the Rain

Dance in the Rain

The day started out a little on the cooler side but was around 55 degrees later on in the evening! We had a fun day at the Store. Angie and Renee had their book class and I got to meet a few new customers! After work I stopped home and dropped off my stuff and headed over to my friend Jim’s. He made a delicious dinner and we had a nice quiet evening watching TV. A great way to end a Saturday! The make up tag class is on at the Store today, should be fun! 😀

I finally got my February My Monthly Hero Kit yesterday so I had to give it a little love! I started off by using the stencil and some Pool and Charcoal Ink with a Mini Ink Blending Tool to create my background on a piece of Slate Card Stock. The greeting is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a strip of Vellum along with raindrops and adhered around the back of the panel. The panel is adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the little umbrella person in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it in with Copics. It’s cut out with the Coordinating Die and adhered to the background. To make my shaker I die cut the window from a piece of Solar White 110lb Card Stock and some Acetate. The acetate is adhered to the back of the window and some 3M Foam Tape goes on next. A little sprinkle of Pretty Pink Posh 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins before adding the window and the card is done! I do love a shaker and the that stencil that comes in the kit is great! I hope that you like my card for today! Thanks for stopping by! Have a simple Sunday! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 275

Ahh… the weekend! Any big plans for you peeps? I might have some but I’m not sure just yet! Yesterday was a nice day, less wind and a little warmer. The second day of Card Class was loads of fun as it always is! In between I managed to get my card made for today too! I did sneak out a little early, My last student finished at 4:30 and I left at 5:00. Had some dinner with the Parent’s and then watched Star War – The Force Awakens for the 20th time and Crash, I haven’t seen that movie in a long time! Today I think Renee has a make up class at the Store and I have lots of things to work on. Fun, fun, fun! 😀

My card that I have to share with you today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

I dug out an oldie by a goodie from Lawn Fawn! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. All of my images and greeting are from the Lawn Fawn Fintastic Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed the greeting onto a piece of Tropical Sea and added a strip of Dark Molasses behind it and adhered it across the center of the card. My images are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Copics. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out and adhered them to a piece of Kraft that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Circles Stackables Lawn Cuts. That is adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares and a few Pretty Pink Posh Sea Breeze and Sparkling Clear Sequins complete the card! I do still love that set with it’s cute fish bowl and greetings! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a fun Saturday! 🙂

Hello my friends! We had another pretty nice day and next week we are to get up into the 60’s again! Can’t wait for that! It was another fun day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store, Renee and I got some of our many projects worked on and Isa came by to scrapbook and my Parent’s stopped by too! After work I had a quick dinner and then went over to Heather’s. She had made Arepas for dinner last night and saved me one! It was delicious. We saw George for a bit and then headed over to pick up Stephanie so we could run to the Walt Whitman Mall. Heather had to exchange her Michael Kors bag and Stephanie wanted a new one! I got Starbucks so I was happy! We also did an early Thirsty Thursday since I have Card Class tonight. Always a good time with my ladies! 😀

Some of my time at the Store was spent making my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

I love those colors! I started off by heat embossing the images from the Altenew Lotus Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Copper Embossing Powder onto a piece of Ballerina Pink and Slate. They are cut out with the Coordinating Dies and put aside while I worked on my base. To create it I used on of the Hero Arts Acetate Note Cards and added some Solar White 80lb to the front, inside front and back. So there would be somewhere to write the greeting I adhered a folded piece to the inside back. My flowers and leaves are then adhered to the card front with E-Z Runner and 3D Foam Squares. The greeting is from the Altenew Label Love Photopolymer Stamp Set and is also heat embossed in Copper onto another piece of Ballerina Pink and cut out with my Scissors. Some more 3D Foam Squares adhere it to the card. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins and the card is finished! It was actually a pretty simple card to make, I love the Acetate Note Card and the simple look of the heat embossed images! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thank you for stopping by! Have an excellent Thursday! 🙂

Wow, Wednesday already?! I enjoyed my solo day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! I had a few people stop in and I made my card for today. I also FaceTimed with my Aunt and my cousin Tracey in England, oh and Andrea too! Today I have to get ready for Card Class and work on some things with Renee! After work I had dinner and then came home and watched Valentine’s Day, an appropriate movie! LOL! I hope that you all enjoyed your day with your special someone! 😀

The card that I made yesterday is for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Challenge

I started off my card by using my Mini MISTI to stamp the Hero Arts Color Layering Goldfish Photopolymer Stamp Set in Lemon Yellow and Orange Soda with the eye stamped in Black. To cut him out I used the Coordinating Frame Cuts. I then set about creating my background. To start I used my Mini Ink Blending Tool and some Mint Julep to add just a little color to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Next I stamped the seaweed from the same set in Emerald Green. My strip of paper down the right side is a piece of Kraft that I heat embossed with the Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain Background Stamp in Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder. The sentiment is from the Hero Arts Many Everyday Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set and I heat embossed it in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a strip of Hunter Green that I cut out with the banner die from the Hero Arts Little Messages Stamp & Cut Set. The strip is adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares along with the goldfish. To complete the card I stamped some of the bubbles in Mint Julep and added a few Pretty Pink Posh Clear Droplets. That Goldfish is still one of my favorites and who doesn’t love the Clear Droplets, they make excellent bubbles! I hope that you like my Design Team Card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and take a peek at the rest of the Team’s cards and enter your in the gallery!
