Last Blog

I think this will be my last blog because I'm going to start uploading my stuff on Facebook. I think it will get more traffic there than here. Keeping up with my family blog & this one is too time consuming.

Popsicle Scented Card

I made this super cute, super easy card & I love how it turned out. I will definitely be making more of these in the future. The strawberrys are scented with Cherry Kool-Aid (I didn't have any strawberry kool-aid). All you have to do is mix the Kool-Aid with clear embossing powder. I also put some fine glitter in the mix as well to jazz it up more


Train Painting Complete!!!

I've been working on this painting for well over a year and I have finally completed it. I had the hardest time getting the colors to work together the way I wanted them too. I have a bunch more paintings that I want to complete so look out in the next few months as I complete them. Hopefully they will go by much faster than this one did.

August Birthdays

These are the most recent projects that I have been working on:

To make things easier on myself I chose 1 stamp set to use for all the cards I was making.

1. August 8th Birthday, candle & 4x4 criss cross card.

2. August 14th Birthday, card

3. August 16th Birthday, card

I have another August birthday that I need to make a card for but I haven't put the new stamp set together yet so it may be next week before I get around to making it unless I get inspired this week.

Late Night, Early Morning

Last Night I went up to the craft room somewhere between 9-9:30PM & didn't come down until 5AM this morning! I was working on my sisters album & the 57 chevy pictures & got so absorbed in what I was doing that I lost all track of time. This has never happened to me before but I'm glad it did, it really got me back in the mood so I'll probably head up there again today to do some more on my to do list.

If your wondering how I kept my energy up, I can honestly say it must have been the Pepsi I had with dinner but it seems a little unreal that I was that awake & actually creative for such a long period of time.

Kents 4th Birthday Invitations

My baby is turning 4!!!! He wants a Mickey Mouse party this year and I think I am more excited than he is. These are my first cross over cards & they look awesome! I printed all the information about the parties (he is having 2, one for friends & one for family but I'm using 1 invitation style) on red paper & cut it out in the shape of Mickey Mouse Heads then stuck them inside the white cross over folder that I had glued vellum Mickey Mouse swirl scrapbook paper on. So incredibly simple & easy but perfect for a little boys party invites. I usually do alot more detail but this year I figured what's the point when they're going to get thrown away by most of the party people even though the could just throw the mickey mouse head away & reuse the folder part for something else.

More 57 Chevy

A friend of the family asked me to make her husband a 5x7 picture that she can frame for her husbands birthday coming up in a few weeks using the stamp of the 57 chevy I used on my father in laws invitations. Of course I jumped at the chance for a challenge. He recently purchased a blue 57 chevy but since I haven't actually seen his yet I went with Tempting Turquoise. I decided to make her 3 different ones to choose from & whichever ones she doesn't want I'll frame & give as gifts later on. I got the general idea from a card on splitcoaststampers but none of them are exactly like that card.

This is our favorite one (mine & Jeff's) but I wasn't sure what kind of colors she likes so that's why I did the other 2 in more masculine colors.

This would be my second favorite. It is definitely different from anything I have ever done in the past. I wear these colors but I've never used them together on any project.

This is my least favorite because I feel like its missing something but I just can't figure out what.
