HolidaysCraftiness 232 HolidaysCraftiness 235


Pretty pretty planners.. I found these too cute and very useful purse planners that I picked up to make for my pals.. I made 5 total. One for each of my 3 friends, one for my mom and one for me.. A girls gotta have her oh so cue accessories right? I used stamps from MFT and cardstock for Papertrey and DCWV to complete these. They are colored with copics. Hope they inspire you to make something fabulous today.

Christmas Quickie Cards

HolidaysCraftiness 219


These are two of the cards we sent out this year for Christmas. I tried to do something simple this year as I was under quite a time crunch. I didn't start early on my cards like I normally do and boy did I pay for it in December. Sorry about the blurry photo I was just not able to get a clear photo of that card and I sharpened it as much as I could so.. thus the blurry image. Although you can't tell my snowman image is sparkly. My SU! demo taught us to use the sparkly paints offered in the Christmas mini catalog and using a drop of paint making a shimmery mist using mini misters we found at Michael's and alcohol. You just shake it up and spritz onto your image it dries almost immediately. It makes your image glitter. I LOVE the effect will try and get some better views of the sparkle as I will be using this often. You know me I LOVE the glitz!

HolidaysCraftiness 220 The Kraft based card is one of my favorites. I love the simplicity and the colors. The red just pops off the Kraft. The white swirls have stickles spotted throughout. I hope you like them.. I know our recipients did.

Sorry about the crooked photo. I promise I wasn't hitting the Margaritas when I took it.. Here's one of my last Kansas images. I am still trying to get those photos taken of all the Notebooks and 3-D Project photos taken, edited, and uploaded. This won't be the last of this image you've seen from me.. But its going to be less often now.. lol. Email me if you have any questions.. I hope she inspires you to do something creative today.

Polka Dotted Vintage Love!

I'm back.. with an old favorite of mine. I am working on quite a few new projects with my Papertrey Goodies. I am awaiting my sell-a-bra-tion order so I can't wait to break those open and make something awesome with that too.

This card is definitely in my faves column. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Vintage Picnic set by Mish Wooderson of Papertrey. Paper piercing is one if my go to techniques for this set. You can change your look just by changing papers.. quick and simple no thinking involved. The border below the main image is created with one of my SU! punches. It is my all time favorite punch. I can't wait to get the sell-a-bra-tion punch I know it's going to be one of my faves also.

Sorry for the long time between posts.. things here are crazy we finally worked ourselves away from the fevers and harfing. It seemed to go through the whole house. One at a time.. including our dog! How weird is that????

Well I thank you again for sticking with me..

Hi All,
I hope your holidays were blessed ones. We were lucky enough to have my parents visiting for both holidays. It was so great to see them. Between the cookie baking, holiday parties and getting gifts ready I have been completely swamped. That is until a bout of Gastroenteritis stopped me in my tracks this week. Boy oh boy was I praying to the porcelain god for a few days. I am seemingly on the mend and hope to be back up to snuff by next week. I will be resuming my blogging sporadically until then. Thanks for being patient with me.. You're the best.
