EASY Noel Card

Wow - it's been so long since I've uploaded anything I wasn't sure I even remembered how to do it! PSX used to be one of my favorite stamp companies, but they are no longer in business. I've had this stamp for many years, but it wasn't until recently I've been happy with my coloring of it. I have recently gotten all of the Spectrum Noir alcohol ink markers and am having SOOOOOO much fun playing with them. I still need lots of practice, but they are pretty easy to blend. I made this card for a gift exchange today. Inside is a decorated coin envelope with a Starbucks gift card inside. I don't often use the mustardy-barf-like color on anything, but I love how these colors look together!

Oh my - I haven't posted since 2011? Wow.....I guess I'd better get busy. It's not that I haven't made anything, I just haven't thought about uploading here. I'm starting to create things for fall craft fairs, so I really do have some things to upload! Hoping to be better about the whole blogging thing!

Altered Composition Books


Well, I found composition books for 25 cents at Walmart and then later at Office Depot.....needless to say I stocked up! So far I have only made one full sized altered book, but I'm loving how it turned out. Hopefully some music lover will fall in love with this one and just HAVE to have it!

I found a DCWV paper stack that is arts-themed - dance, music, theater, etc. I am loving the paper!

The little stamped image is a little $1 stamp I picked up at Michael's last week. I used my Big Shot and Nestibilities to get the cool shape for the stamped image! I'm also using the stamp on some tile coaster sets that I haven't photographed yet. That will be a later post!

One Last Picture - PACKAGING!



Ok, one last picture of these.....It took me about a week to figure out how to package these so they would look cute! Good thing I just happened to have pink and blue bling in my craft room that worked perfectly!

Fingers crossed that people like these since I made 120 of them!

Tooth Fairy Tins






I've been working on making these for fall craft fairs.....I made a lot of them, so I hope they will be really good sellers! It is difficult to see in the picture, but I added Crystal Effects to the tooth to give it an enamel look. I also added Stickles to the wings. The Tooth Fairy stamps sets are from Whimsie Doodles.

The tins are from the wedding section at Michael's.

Cute Little Web Address Book



So, I'm one of those people who just scrawls web addresses, user names, and passwords on whatever piece of paper that's close by. Well.......it's a problem when you can't find that little piece of paper when you need it! I started out with the idea of making these for fall craft shows, but I have to say that I WILL BE KEEPING THIS ONE for myself!

I used the stamp set "Take Note" from Papertrey Ink, and created the alpha letters in Word and punched them out with my label punch. I also did some sponging to keep with the general them of the designer paper. I can't wait to make more of these!

Oh My!

Wow, I can't believe that it has been almost a year since I've posted anything here! It's not that I haven't made any cards......I just haven't posted them here. Well, I'm hoping to get back to the blogging!

I've started working on some items for fall craft fairs, so that seems to be occupying most of my time lately! Hopefully I can get all of the things made that I have in my head!

I just changed the look of my blog.....I think! I'm not very good at the blogging thing, so I'm hoping that the new look stays.
