My TA Da's (my most recent creations)

Love scrapbook page

Get Well Card

Just Because Card

College Days Scrapbook page

My TO Do's

Work on halloween cards (have a few ideas)
Start working on christmas cards (have 2 ideas)

This weeks Challenge: let's see what you can do with a "mass produced" theme. Two pages with the same layout? Two cards with the same colors? I've done this before.... stuck to a theme or layout... and it's amazing how much faster my crafting goes. Give it a try! :)

Card Just Because

I made this card just because. I used the heart cuttlebug embossing folder for the background. It's hard to tell in the pic but the angels wings are glittered.
Thanks for looking glad to be getting back into crafting.

Jay's Tatty Teddy Get Well Card

I made this get well card for my friend Jay. Tatty Teddies are Jay & I thing we are addicted to them and so to cheer him up I printed the image from the web and made a card. These bears are so adorable, I love them.

I have missed all my e-friends and blogging. I finally have everything in order and things are looking up for me. I am settled into my own place and I'm enjoying it and enjoying my freedom (something that wasn't allowed with my past). I have moved on and I am happy. I feel that I have all the right people in my live right now.

With that I am on vacation all this week from work. I have some day trips planned for my sister and I (watch for pictures) and I also plan to make a card and scrapbook page this week. I haven't crafted in so long and I miss it.

Thank you for being patient with me as I made this transition.

I will not be blogging for awhile. I do apologize for not visiting everyone's blogs. I miss you guys and I hope to have your support when I come back. I am going through some personal things right now and this blog and my hobby has to take the back burner. Sorry.

Feel free to email me at

Another Thinking of You Card

All my friends seem to be going through something difficult right now whether it be surgery or something else. I had to make another thinking of you card today. This card I used the For Father SU Stamp. It just seemed liked the perfect image for the occassion. I also used the Fiskars Corner punch, sorry don't remember the name of it but it's one of those 4 in 1 punches (if you need to know I can get the name for you just let me know). The mats for the image were made on the cricut using the George Cartridge. It's hard to tell from the photo but I chalked the edges of the image.

I made this card for another card for a friend who is going through a difficult time right now. I made her this Thinking of You card.

Birthday Cards

Sorry I haven't been blogging but I have been dealing with personal issues and a horrible cold that I still have. I treated to myself to some new stamps.

I love these Dragons. They are from a stamp company called Lelo. They are so adorable. Paper is from Creating Keepsakes Confetti and Daisies.

Paper is from DCWV Sweets paper stack. And the image is from Stampendous Tiers of Treats. If you click on the photo to enlarge it you will see that some of the cupcakes have fluff on them to make them looking like frosting.

Paper is from DCWV Sweets paper pack. The cupcake image I received from WRAK on SCS. The oval was made using the cricut George Cartridge. The Happy Birthday was embossed using the cuttlebug and Happy Birthday embossing folder. It's hard to see but I used stickles on the cupcake. The image was colored in with SU Markers.

The next two cards use the Lelo Birthday Dragon stamp. I made one card for a boy and the other for a girl. The girl card is my favorite though. The saying Make A Wish was done on the computer using the Aladdin font.

Photo Tag

I was tagged by the talented Melanie and Kimmy. This is a fun tag!

Here are the instructions:

1. Go to your Picture Folder on your computer or wherever you store your pictures.

2. Go to the 6th Folder, then pick the 6th picture in that folder.

3. Post that picture on your blog and the story that goes along with the picture.

4. Tag 6 other people that you know or don’t know to do the same thing and leave a comment on their blog or an e-mail letting them know you chose them.

This is my friend Jay. I met him through my sister Kayla, who is friends with his younger sister Carrie (they go to school together). Jay and I first started talking because I have a laptop that I was hoping he could fix but it's a problem with the mother board. Our friendship kind of went from there. Jay has a problem where he feels that he must tell me "everything" and I can't stress enough everything. Sometimes I have to question why are you telling me this. LOL!

I have to tag 6 people. Everyone I know has been tagged so I am going to tag 2 people (they probably won't play along anyways but we'll give it a try).

Thinking of You Elephant

My friend has a fascination with elephants so I made this card. I like the layout of this card, I saw the layout somewhere (I believe possibly on SCS I will try to find it). This is another stamp that I have had for awhile but never used (SU Wild for you).
*Today I made a drastic change with my hair style if you want to see check out my photo blog here***

This is a little Valentine card. I had this Suzy Zoo stamp for awhile and I have neglected it. The cardstock was ran through the cuttlebug using the hearts embossing folder. I love embossing with the cuttlebug.

I made this card for the Stamps, Scraps n More challenge - to make a Riley card. I received this Riley image from SCS WishRak.

Sunday Scrappin

Welcome to Sunday Scrappin! I have been a bad blogger, I have been creating things but not posting (I am so sorry).


My sweet friend Diana introduced me to 52 Sketches 52 Weeks and so far I've been doing great. These scrapbook pages of Buddy use week #2 sketch (week #1 page can be seen here )

For this layout I couldn't decide which picture of Buddy I wanted to use since I love both of them so I made a 2 page layout. Paper is from Colorbok Jewel paper pack. I ran out of the blue for the snowflakes so I the second page the flakes are a little smaller. The snowflakes were made using the cricut doodlecharms border feature. The title is Thickers Stickers

This is what the 2 pages look together. The scallop edge is a little off because I made those by hand. Note to self need to invest in a scallop punch.

I ordered the DCWV Sweets Paper pack and it finally arrived. I love the paper in that pack!! I waited and waited for the order to arrive so I could make a card and when it arrived I had a hard time using the papers because they are so cute (ever have that problem ?) The image is from SCS Wishrak group it's from SU Crazy for Cupcakes set.
Make birthday cards
Continue playing along with 52 Sketches 52 Weeks Challenges
I have a heart ornament that I want to make
Valentine cards
PS. The week before Sunday Scrappin Challenge was to try a new technique. I tried paper quilling (tutorial can be seen here). I had the supplies for the longest time and I finally made a little heart. The batteries are charging in my camera I will take a picture later.
Next weeks Sunday Scrappin Challenge is to beat those winter blues by using the color blue as your main color!

**Sorry for the poor quality picture but there isn't much light here (a snow storm is moving in). You can click on the photo to enlarge it).

My friend Forgetfulone invited me to join 52 Sketches 52 Weeks. I would love to do 52 scrapbook layouts this year, that would be great. I make more cards then scrapbooks, it's not due to lack of pictures that's for sure. This first sketch was a challenge for me. I'm not a one picture layout person LOL I like to put several pictures on a page. Secondly, I never journal in my own handwriting, but being that my printer would not corporate with me today I had no choice.

Simple Valentine

The ribbon the bottom of the card inspired this card idea. I think I may make another one using this style but different colors.
Paper: Cardstock green and pink, pattern paper is from Everyday paper pack
Ribbon: American Crafts
OTHER: Pop dotted middle heart

Sunday Scrappin

Now that the holidays are over it's time to get back into the swing of things. I have been busy with the holidays that I haven't done Sunday Scrappin the past few weeks, but it feels great to be back.


Made 2 Valentine Cards (I usually only hand out 2 cards one to my sister and one to Jeff *note yes Carrie Ba-Darry I will make one for you this year too) but I have lots of Valentine card ideas this year so I may get them done and have on hand to use for other occasions ie. anniversary, just because etc.


Loads of Birthdays coming up (1 in February 4 in April) so I need to get working on those I have one card idea already

Start thinking about an Anniversary card

pull this craft room back together (it's slowly getting there)

Send out some WishRaks on SCS

Challenges: Last weeks challenge was to use something from your stash and the 2 valentine cards that I made everything (with the exception of the chipboard heart on the one card) came from my stash. This weeks challenge is to Try a new technique... use a new supply... whatever you'd like, but do something that's new for you.

Birthday Card RAKS

Today my mailbox was filled with wonderful birthday cards. Thank you so much ladies for the wonderful cards, it brighted my day!

FROM Julie (SCS afancycat)



It is so nice to be able to make something besides a Christmas/winter theme card.

I love the Whiff Joy stamps. I received this image from WishRak. The paper is Basic Grey Wassail Paper. The heart in the bottom right is a Vintage Wood Shape by Lil Davis Designs (got a package of 27 shapes for $.50 at AcMoore today).

When I original set out to make this card I had the card idea in my head for Jeff but all pink does not scream male valentine to me. LOL! Used the cuttlebug heart embossing folder and then went over some of the hearts with SU dazzling diamonds.
