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.

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.

The ribbon the bottom of the card inspired this card idea. I think I may make another one using this style but different colors.

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.
