Happy Halloween

The first card uses retired CTMH paper and the Artbooking cricut cartridge. I love how fast and quick this card went together. The second one shows Ranger inks and Nevermore paper. The spider web was spotlighted using CTMH inks.

I played with Some Odd Girl Photo Kaylee stamp set and some scraps left over from another card I was working on.

Wednesday, October 14, 2015


I played with a saying from Unity and Close To My Heart papers and flowers. I used last years Fundamentals. I made it pink by rubbing ink on top. You can see the paper without ink behind the saying. The flowers are CTMH. The cross was loose on my desk.

I am playing with old papers and a new stamps set from Virgina Turtle Stamps. I used glitter to create the salt. The pink one I cut off the lime wedge because I accidentally colored it wrong.

Nevermore Blog Hop

You should of come from Andrea's blog.
I played with the new Nevermore paper pack from Close To My Heart. The flower is from the September Stamp of the Month and the Happy is from the Scrapbooking Picture My Life stamp. Both sets are only available till end of September. I am the end of the hop.

Friday, August 28, 2015


I am playing with the Fundamentals line which is changing patterns on Sept 1. I love that one side shows the hearts and the other side is more embossed feel. I used a retire stamp set.

Saturday, August 15, 2015


This uses Close To My Heart retiring papers at the end of August. The black stars are retiring too. I just noticed that the bow that I had on the balloons ran away. I will make sure to find it before sending it out. The shape is from one of the CTMH cricut cartridges. I tend to cut a bunch of shapes so I have them ready when I want to craft. The balloon and saying are from the retiring set is called Happy Everything.

Monday, August 3, 2015


Hi This is from a hostess set from Close To My Heart. I just decided to distress it because the blue ink got in a spot I didn't want at first so made it look like it was supposed to be there. Remember that August is last month to get this fun paper and other amazing goodies. September starts a new catalog. I am doing a speical gift to all who place an order this month. Go here

Sunday, August 2, 2015

Coffee Canvas

Ok, I have been playing with all kinds of stuff. My gelatos, sprays, inks and dies and Silhouette. I love the colors and had fun making my first canvas.

Saturday, July 4, 2015


I got some new stamps from Virgina Craft supplies. This is one of my favorite sets. I love the saying. I wish you could see the sparkle in background.

Tuesday, June 16, 2015


I used Paper Temptress Pop Tones paired with Parchment White Vellum. The circle is Silver Lustre. The close up shows the texture and wish the beautiful silver would photograph better. I embossed the stamps with embossing powder since stamping on the Lustre tends not to dry due to the slippery feel to the paper.

Season's Givings Blog Hop

Hi Welcome to everyone! I am excited to be part of this amazing hop. I have been so blessed by my crafting friends and companies over the past year. I have blog candy and all I ask is your email so I can contact you easily if you win. The blog candy is a surprise for both the winner and me. Life has been extremely crazy along with my health issues flaring nothing serious just that I have fibromyalgia which is like having the flu aches all the time and cold weather doesn't agree with me. I live in central CA so doesn't get too cold but just enough for me not to like it. Below is a card box and one of the cards that will be in the box. This is part of the candy. Have a great New Year!
The stamp set is from Close To My Heart and the box. I used a Picture my Life card for the balloons.
