Here are some things that I have been working on..

Here are some things that I have been working on for other people... I need some ME time!!

  • The first picture are some table name tags that I did for a kids table, I thought they turned out SOO cute!! I love them. I made them with Real Red and Cert. Celery SU card stock then used the scallop punch with some Michael's paper shhhh... I used the SU Merry and Bright Stamp set from the winter mini catalog then finished off with my favorite detail of dazzling diamonds glitter. Oh yeah I also embossed the snowmen in blue and green embossing powder and then added glitter to the hot embossing powder, I think they just turned out great!!
  • The next picture is of a wreath that I made for Heidi and I will for sure make one of these for myself next year. I used color combinations of Sky Blue, Cert. Celery and Real Red and the stamp sets that I used were Punch Pals, Snowflake Spot, and Wishing You Cheer. They are 3 X 3 "ornaments" that I hot glued to the wreath, I have also done this tieing them on but I like the hot glue the best, it just gives it more of a finished look. I also accessorized with hodgepodge hardware and real Red and Cert Celery ribbons. The ribbons that are wrapped around the wreath are from Michaels.... I know shhhh again. I LOVE making these wreaths and I will probubly do a class with them at one point. Let me know what you think.
  • Then the last picture is using my favorite embossing friend. I LOVE my cuttlebug, i don't use it for the die cuts since I already have a cricut for that but it works great for those as well, but I do use it to dry emboss with, it's so easy and I just adore the effect it brings to your card or scrapbook. This card is made with Real Red cardstock and real Red ribbon, that's it!! I also used the happy Everything set, but I think it would be a great card even without it.
I will post more stuff soon!!
Blessings and thanks for looking!!

So they are finally done, this is a good day and a lot of stress has gone from me right now.

So here they are completed, the picture frame wall hanging one was all done in the SU In Color colors and ribbon. I used the in color card stock Soft Sky and Purely Pomegranate. The stamp set is SU snowflake spot. They turned out great just how I had envisioned. Hopfully I will get some more work from these.

The other one is done in the In Color River Rock, Ruby Red, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, and another green that I can not remember right now. It also has silver brads on it along with black stitching which adds so much to a card. I also took their picture and thought it turned out pretty good. I backed their picture in with black card stock and stamped the baroque bouquet stamp set and the Christmas saying with Always Artichoke. I printed a saying from the couple on the inside and then did the hand stamped by Heather stamp on the back. I think they turned out great and I am excited to hear what people will say about them.

So now that they are all done off to make mine and some milk bank cards!! It never ends!!
Thanks for looking!!

Busy Busy Busy

So I am one busy girl right now that's why I haven't been able to post many pictures of anything, I had 150 Milk Bank Cards to do and write in for "In My Thoughts..." and then I got 2 orders both for 125 from Heidi a wonderful mom i met at Super Play and then my aunt ordered her Christmas cards from me too. YIKES!! They all have to be made and sent out in the next week too!!

But here are pictures of what they will look like the first one is Heidi's and it will be something that her clients can hang on thier wall (or whatever) and it will have the top picture of the family, the next one of the kids and the bottom has a Christmas Blessing. SOO CUTE!!

Then my Aunts is the example that I made up for her so it will have thier picture in the place where Luke is and it will have a different saying on it as well. Thanks for looking and if anyone is a little bored and needs something to do give me a call.

A invitation to a surprise party that i did for someone at church. I thought it turned out pretty cute!! The other picture is a Christmas Ornament that I made using the On Board Trimmings from the Stampin up Mini Catalog!! Love it!!

It's over...

Well all the craft fairs are finally over and they were ok, except for the funny story that the craft faire that I did last was at a Jewish preschool and I was selling pretty much only Christmas stuff so needless to say that I didn't sell anything, but I did have a great time talking with Gina the whole time, that was the best part. I was supposed to have one more at Mike's work but since Mike will be on a business trip and I couldn't find a sitter, and Mike needs to be picked up from the airport, and someone from Fair Isaac has to be with me the whole time (trying to find someone that it wouldn't be awkward with was a little hard) so all those things combined made us think that this wasn't going to work out. So anyway I will have TONS of stuff for next years craft faires or if something last minute comes up at least I can say yes!! Anyway I made a bunch of cute stuff but only half of what I wanted to get done : ( Oh well, it was fun... well now that it's over it was and a great learnign experience. Thanks for all that came and a double thanks for anyone that bought something.

Ok so last week was a total blast from the Fall Festival which was SOOOO great and then the street faire, so much fun and I was really tired. So here are some pictures from the event, FULL of some great ideas!!!!!
So I have decided to stop my myspace and just BLOG, I am tired of people not writting back and I am just kinda over myspace and want something that I can get to know my friends a little better, so I am going to be using this as a tool to help equip my customers and friends with more ideas for stamping and crafting and also keep updated on my life!
Just a reminder I am having a shopping party FULL of 6 vendors at my house on November 15th so please come and get a jump on your Christmas shopping!! I am having candles, jewelry, food, crafts (of course), entertainment housewares, and Body shop stuff!! We will also be donating a portion of all our sales to the Red Cross so please come and support us and the local Red Cross.
So that's about the only details that have been going on here, Luke turned ONE!! So big!! But I will be updating more often now so stay tuned.

Viva Las Vegas...

So we are leaving for Vegas tomorrow and can I say I am a little nervous, I was up all last night with Luke crying his head off. Poor Dad and Gloria, so please pray... pray hard that he does well. I am losing my excitment for going, so please pray that God's grace and peace fall upon Luke. Thanks see you soon!!

The first one is a baby shower i hosted and we made a TON of onsies for the new baby and I got two new customers out of it too!!

My new favorite thing. I love stamping on onsies!! Luke is 8 months now and i love making him personalized tees we go out and we get so many compliments on them, Blake and Kylee love them too since they watch me make them.

This is an already worn and washed onsie, I used craft ink and heat set it!! It works great. I have also made other onsies which I will post also in a minute.

A basket that I made for my Mother In-Law. Today is her BIG 60th birthday party and I used the new Baroque Motifs set which at first I did not like but got it because of the extra 20% off to demo's, well... now I LOVE it. I had such a great time using it. I love the elegant and fun aspect of it.

So off to clean and keep on setting up for the BIG bash today!!!
