I thought it was the perfect time to get into the Christmas Spirit and start creating some Christmas Gift Tags...  Most of my stuff is still out in the garage awaiting us finding a house to buy so I am limited to what I managed to pick up a few Christmas/snowy things but when creating I would really love to have a lot more options, but I am making the best of what I have with a Hobby Lobby/Michaels trip planned for today... hehe

Here is my first Christmas tag of the year...  Using my Ipad to take my photos and edit them as I got a new computer and can't seem to find my photo shop cd yet. I'm sure it's in the garage packed with all my amazing Christmas embellishments...

Lets go on a Hay Ride...

A couple weeks ago some new scrappy friends here in San Antonio were heading to the new Archivers about an hour or so north of here.  So I kindly asked if they see a stamp I was looking for (ok lets be honest here I really NEEDED the stamp) that I would be for ever grateful if someone could pick it up for me and I would meet up with them asap to get it and of course pay them for it.  So I guess all the planets were aligned and luck was on my side as it was there and they snatched it up for me. (Thanks again ladies)  So with that said here is my card using the Stampendous Hay Ride Kiddos stamp....

Isn't the stamp cute... Now you see whey I really NEEDED it... hehe

Happy Monday and A Halloween Card

Happy Monday everyone...  First up is a Halloween Card I created with the Mumeek Stamp from Stampendous that I colored with my Tim Holtz Distress Markers...

 Products used:
Tim Holtz Distress Markers
Ranger Archival Ink
Recollections Pattern Paper
Happy Halloween (computer generated)

Here is a close up for ya...


Here is the amazing stamp from Stampendous
 I am really loving all the new stamps from Stampendous this year.... Can't wait to get busy on Christmas cards with some of them, but first I have to find the stamps in the stores...lol 

 So on to my weekend... which I spent it running here, there and everywhere.  Still trying to find my way around San Antonio. I still get lost..lol  While running around on Saturday we passed a cowboy boot store called Cavender's Boot city.  So on Sunday after the grocery shopping etc was done hubby and I decided to check it out.  Let me tell ya this place was packed with all kinds of Cowboy/Cowgirl boots.  Hubby got a chuckle out of me.. He is from Texas and well Cowboy boots have been a part of his life since he could probably walk. lol  Anyway Ladies if your looking for some bling on ya boots this is the place to go.. lol  So in walking around I discovered the Justin Ladies Gypsy boot collection and fell in love with this pair...


These boots are a total of 8" high vs the normal 12-13" which I love as the longer boots never fit my chubby legs right so I never wore boots before.  I am already planning on a 2nd pair. hehe   I hope your weekend was filled with fun adventures...

I will be back tomorrow with another card.  Till then... Happy Crafting.

An Altered Halloween Canvas...

So here's the story why my little blog has been suffering...  I started working Full Time again.  I love my job don't get me wrong, but I'm not gonna lie I also loved crafting 2-3 hours a day sometimes more.  Now I depend on the weekends to craft and I always seem to put my blog on the back burner.  So from here on out I am setting aside some time on the weekend to get my blog all scheduled for the week.  I hope that will help in getting things back on track because I have lots to share. hehe

With that said here is a project I made a couple weeks ago for Purple Cows.

Products Used:
Canvas
Wood Frame (Michaels)
Distress Ink
My Minds Eye Pattern Paper (6x6 pad)

A super fun and easy project to create to dress up a entry table or wall.  I promise it's super easy to do and one you an create in a mater of minutes.

As always my Purple Cows Projects come with a supply list and instructions...

Sending yall a little treat today...

So this week hasn't been the greatest as I have been a bit under the weather, but today I feel some what better and hope things will improve over the next few weeks.  About a week or so ago I was able to sit down and create in my new little happy space.  Hubby happened to locate a stamp I was looking for so I took out my Tim Holtz Distress Markers and got busy coloring up this adorable stamp from Stampendous.

Tim Holtz Distress Markers
(Dusty Concord, Mustard Seed, Black Soot, Pumice Stone, Tea Dye,

So I had a blast using the distress markers to water color the image.  I also took some marker techniques to add feathering to the hair etc. 

Now I must find this image from Stampendous.. It is a must have...

It's called Hay Ride Kiddos... Isn't it adorable... I must have it. 

Thanks so much for looking and I will be back soon with another project.  Till then... Happy Crafting!

Settled and Missing you...

Wow I never thought with moving etc that it would be this long since I last posted.  Where did all that time go.  I swear it only feels like it's been a couple weeks since I last posted, but a month in a half is just crazy.  Well we are finally in Texas and settled into a small little 3 bedroom rental till we find the home we want to buy.  Since our master bedroom is so huge hubby suggested I take a corner and set up a little crafting area for myself.  I have to say I am rather lucky that he supports my crafting enough to put an area in our master so I wouldn't have to lug my stuff out from a closet or garage every time I wanted to craft.

Now that almost everything I need is out of a box and has a spot I am back to creating and I love my new little area as it's all clean and tidy etc; but I am missing all my scrappy friends from Washington.  I just so happened to have the perfect stamp set on my table and created a card to let all my scrappy friends back in Washington know that I miss them and I'm thinking of them...

Products used:
Unity Stamps (sending my love)
Crate Paper Pattern paper (little BoPeep)
Tim Holtz Distress Markers 
(crushed olive, worn lipstick,walnut stain, broken china, tumbled glass and barn dorn.)
Water Color Paper
Kraft Paper
Momento Ink (tuxedo black)
Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Walnut Stain)
Ribbon


Here is a photo of my little crafty corner... 


I am still looking for the boxes with my coke and wine crate to store my Copic/Pro Markers, My Twine, smaller stamps and washi Tape etc.  Once I get those they will be added as well as some wall decor.. I also need to paint my cubbie storage on my desk (the blue and purple thing).  I am thinking of the same color as the teal crates or maybe even white. Anyway this is my little crafty corner.. It's not a whole room like I had before, but it's only temporary till we find the perfect house to buy.

I will be back tomorrow with another project.  Till then.... Happy Crafting and thanks for stopping by.

A Shabby Chic Frame + another b-day.

This past weekend we celebrated yet another birthday... My middle son turned 14.  He had a fun get together with a few of his friends and what started out with 6 boys spending the night turned into 10.  It was one loud night and I will be the first to say I am thankful that we had a few tents for them all to sleep in and the weather was amazing!


Today I would like to share a "shabby chic" frame that I created for Purple Cows using the CraftGeek Punch It Spring Punch.



I love the detailed effects and the amazing backgrounds etc you can create with the Punch It tool. Below is the full printable pdf with supply list and instructions.

How I create and a Card...

Do you find yourself digging in that big bin of $1 stamps at Michaels?  I am always checking them out for some good sentiments, words etc.  I found the one below a few months ago and just love the 2 different fonts on it.  When creating cards I usually have 2 small 5x7 shallow baskets on my desk.  I will grab some sentiment stamps wood and clear, ink and a clear block and put it in one basket while the other will have a mix of embellishments, ribbons etc.  I like having a few small baskets on my desk that hold all the bits I am working with so they are at my finger tips.  I hate having to hunt for things when I'm creating.  Having things gathered up this way sure makes creating easier and neater for me.

With that said here is a card I created with some left over Prima flowers and that awesome $1 sentiment stamp from Michaels...

Products used:
Graphic45 Pattern Paper
Kraft Cardstock
Prima Flowers
StudioG Stamp (Michaels)
Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Walnut Stain)
Pop Dots

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.  It really does mean a lot.  I will be back tomorrow with another project. Till then... Happy Crafting.

My little box of scraps... {post #1}

We have been packing and purging big time for our move next month so I'm sad to say it also includes my scraproom.  In the process of all the madness I came across an accordion file folder filled with some pattern paper scraps from several years ago.lol  I decided to trim a few of them to sizes that would be great for cards and put in my little box of scraps. (it really is just one of those photo boxes from Micheals).  My little box of scraps consists of paper scraps that are already cut down into squares, rectangles and some smaller strips no bigger then 5"x5".  Plus cardstock strips and chipboard pieces already stamped with sentiments.  Some odds and ends like the last flower or die cut from a package, the last bits of ribbon etc.  It's perfect to take with to a crop or when you need to create a last minute card etc.  Anyway getting back to the accordion file filled with scraps of pattern paper.  After I cut down the ones I liked and wanted to keep for cards etc. I decided to leave a few of them on my desk as I was planning to scrap later that day and wanted to use them for a few cards I had ideas for.  I picked out a few leftover embellishments from the box and once I sat down to create I was ready with most of my supplies. It totally helps the creative process and I get a lot more projects done with things already cut etc.

Here is one of the cards I created with the old scraps and a few things from my little box of scraps as well as couple supplies that were left on my desk from a previous project (wire embellishment and gems).  So you see it eventually gets used up.  I would also recommend only having ONE little box of scraps so supplies get used instead of sitting for years like the accordion file folder did.  I plan on posting cards I created from my little box of scraps once a week...

Products used:
Pattern Paper (I think it's foofala?)
Bazzill Cardstock
Little Yellow Bicycle scalloped die cut (i think)
Purple Cows CraftGeek Wind It tool to create wired embellishment
Prima Flower
K12 Studio Sentiment Stamp (mothers day set)
Ribbon
Staz-on Black ink
Gems
KI Memories chipboard piece
Tim Holtz Walnut Stain distress ink

A Birthday Boy and a Card.

Today is my little guy's 11th birthday... I still can't believe he's going to be in the 6th grade. He is a funny little guy with a heart of gold.  He cracks me up with all the funny things he comes up with.  A few of his favorite things right now is playing Skylanders, watching the History channel, riding the dirt bike and chillen out on the computer.

I love this photo of him as it captures his funny side, but also shows how much he wants to be like his dad.

Since he is my baby I thought I would share with y'all a baby card that I created showcasing some fabulous I am Roses and the amazing Purple Cows Wind It and Pin It tools.

Products used:
Graphic 45 Pattern Papers
Kraft Cardstock
Purple Cows CraftGeek Wind It, Wire, Pin It and Pin
I am Roses Flowers
DMC floss
Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Old Paper)

Here is a close up of the wire embellishment I created with the Wind It tool from Purple Cows along with the Pin It and the flowers from I am Roses.
