Memorial Guest Book

Good morning, hope all is well with you. First of all I must say Thank You So Much to everyone that has left such kind comments for me. I really appreciate. And it feels really good to get back to some kind of normalcy. I haven't been able to do anything craft related in 2 weeks-kinda been going through withdrawals(hehe). But now it's over and I'm trying to get back into my routine. I did make a guest book for my MIL's memorial service. We looked and looked for one in the stores. We couldn't find anything we liked or wanted. And when I did finally find one it was 25 bucks(yuck)! So I decided to make my own. I'm really happy with the way it turned out. Although I kinda had a scare. I knew I had seen this paper, I just couldn't remember if I actually bought it or just saw it in the store. But I finally found it. I kept if very simple, just the DP, some velvet ribbon, the rose and a computer generated sentiment cut out with nesties. Again, thank you for all the kind words, and there will be more to come this week.

A Death In The Family

Good evening, hope all is well with you. I just need to let everyone know that I will be taking the next week off from blogging and crafting. My terminally ill MIL, who I was taking care of, has passed away. We have a HUGE family, and are very busy with them. So thank you for being understanding, and I promise to get to everyone's blog's next week after the memorial.

Disney Tag in a Bag

Good morning, hope all is well with you. Today I have a fun little thing to share. They are called "Tag in a Bag". I had never heard of these, then I saw a swap on SCS, and thought they looked like fun. So the idea here is to make a tag that fits in these cute little bags. They can be for gifts or for journaling for scrapbookers. The possibilities are huge! This swap was for Disney themed ones. The first one is a Cinderella one. I don't know the maker of the Cinderella stamp, but the glass slipper on the inside is from Sassy Studio Designs. It is a digital image so I was able to shrink it down to fit. I added diamond glaze to the shoe to make it look like glass. The second one is Tinkerbell. I used a digital coloring page that I found on the Internet. The third one is Boo from Monsters Inc. The Cinderella and Boo images were colored with prisma pencils and baby oil. The Tinkerbell was colored with copics. All CS is Bazzill, and all DP is DCWV. Don't forget that Friday is the release day for The Character Cafe', which means lots of new images and a blog hop. Lots of fun and prizes to be won. Have a wonderful day!

Good morning, hope all is well with you. Can you believe it's been 2 weeks already? And that means it's time for another sketch brought to you by The Sketch Girls. So make sure you head over there to check it out and we are trying to reach 100 followers, once we do, there are 3 stamp sets to be given away. Also make sure you play along with us. So today I used a Tilda image. I don't know the name of it because it was sent to me-sorry! But she' so cute, I LOVE her socks. I colored her with my copics, and added some stickles. The flowers are Prima's and I just added a jewel to the center of them. Again I used the twine that I "found" when cleaning up my stamping area. I used a fiskars edge punch along the bottom of both pieces of paper. Make sure you check out the other DT's blogs to see their wonderful creations. Have a wonderful day!

Good morning, hope all is well with you! Can you believe it's the 7th week of Feature Friday from The Character Cafe'? Today I have the Sunflower for you. I LOVE this sunflower and haven't used it yet, so I thought today would be perfect. I colored the image with my prisma pencils and baby oil. I so LOVE this technique. I don't why I was ever afraid of it! Oh well! This digi image comes with 4 different ones-3 of them have sentiments! How cool is that? The CS is Bazill Bling line. All DP is Bo Bunny, not sure of the line. I did distress the main panel with Tim Holtz distress ink. And in case you forget(like I did) the Work It Wednesday for this week is GLITTER! Who doesn't love glitter? So this was again perfect for me. I tend to used it on just about everything I do. Make sure you check it out, you could even win a prize!!! I colored the dew drops with my copics, and added some twine. I bought a bunch of this awhile ago, and totally forgot about it, until I found it the other day while cleaning up(hehe).

So don't forget to check out the Work It Wednesday, and the other DT's blogs to see their fabulous creations for today!

Squigglefly Bookmark!

Good afternoon, hope all is well with you. Today I have another Squigglefly creation for you. I decided to make a bookmark with this adorable image. The image is called "Tiny Tina Goes To School". I just love this little girl, she has quite a few images to go with her. The dp is DCWV, and I just added some stickles to her headband, shoes, belt and the hearts on her dress. I cut the top is CS and DP with decorative scissors. I added an eyelet and some fibers, voila', it's finished. The challenge for today is to use fall colors, so I thought a back to school thing was perfect.

Do You Believe?

Good afternoon, hope all is well with you. Today I have a card that was made for the Sassy Studio Design's Release. Saturday was their release, and they had a masquerade ball for the event. This release had a fairy tale theme to it. I've never participated in any of the release parties for any company, but I LOVE SSD, and decided to give it a try. It was so much fun, they had 4 different challenges, I only got 1 done, but oh well. This is it!!! The challenge was to use lots and lots of bling! Perfect challenge for me! Of course the image is from SSD, the sentiment was made on the computer. CS is Bazzill Bling, and DP is DCWV Once Upon a Time Stack. Thanks for looking, have a wonderful day. And if you like fairy tale's make sure you check out SSD. Also don't forget about Work It Wednesday for The Character Cafe'. Their are prizes if you play along!
P.S. This card qualifies for the Digital Tuesday Challenge.
