Hi everyone!! Hope that you've all been doing well. I know that it's been almost 11 months since I last posted an entry on my blog but so much has changed in my life since then. My last relationship ended almost a year ago and I just became busy with finding a new home, moving into my new home and learning all the joys that come with home ownership. I also got into a new relationship with the most AMAZING guy 5 months ago and have just enjoyed being happy and content with him and his children. I can honestly say that life for me is good now and I've enjoyed finding myself again over this last year.
That said, I haven't been able to really create anything in my new craft room since I moved...things are still a bit of a mess in that room and I can't wait until it's finally organized so that I can get back into my room and start creating.
I do have a mixed media project that I'd like to share with you. I've never done anything like this before so I took a class taught by Linda at The Paper Pickle at the beginning of the month. I'm pretty proud of how my canvas piece turned out...I ended up hanging it in my craft room the next day.
It was so nice seeing what everyone else's canvases looked like...we all had the same layout to use but everyone put their own spin on it and all the canvases turned out so good.
Anyways, I hope to be posting to my blog more often...I'll actually be having my annual Christmas card making day with my mom next weekend so I will definitely post pics of some of our creations. Hope you all have a great night!! Thanks for stopping by!!
Hi everyone! Hope that you are all doing well and enjoying your Christmas holidays. I'm really sorry for neglecting this blog for the past 5 months. I've been making cards and had every intention of posting pictures of them, but life has just gotten crazy these past few months and I'm only finding time to post pictures of my creations now.
I'm making a pact to myself that in 2011 I will get back on track with this blog and start posting pictures of my creations more regularly.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my creations...I'll most likely have a few more posts of pictures after this as I have a lot of cards to share!!
Hi everyone!! Hope that you are all doing well!! I'm on vacation in the Lonestar state this week visiting my boyfriend who's working here, so I am enjoying my time to just relax and recharge myself.
I wanted to share this easel card that I made a few weeks ago with you (I cased it from a card that I made in a card class at the Paper Pickle). I made it for a card mingle in the Magnolia-licious group that I belong to. The theme was "Happy Birthday" as the group just celebrated its 2nd birthday last month.
I stamped Midsummer Tilda with Memento ink in tuxedo black onto some white cardstock that I bought from my LSS, The Paper Pickle ( I can't remember which company makes it but I really like it), and coloured it in with my Stampin' Write markers. The rest of the cardstock and designer paper is from a Key Ingredients kit from Taylored Expressions. To finish off my card, I used my scalloped edge punch from SU! (I really like this punch), some white organza ribbon from SU!, some Stickles and some green pearls.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my card! I'm going to get out of the apartment here today and take a walk to the Hobby Lobby that I found when we were driving to pick up our supper last night (I love this store and didn't realize how close I was to one...I'm just going to have to not go crazy shopping there cause I don't want to pay extra for having a heavier suitcase on my flight back home). Hope you all enjoy the rest of your day!!
- Sorry that the picture of my card is sideways...I've tried loading it a few times the normal way but it keeps coming out sideways, so I'm not sure what's going on with the Blogger picture loader.
Hi everyone!! I can't believe that it's almost been 2 months since I last posted a card...I've just been super busy with other things. I've wanted to share this card for a while but am now only getting a chance to show it off.
I fell in love with this Magnolia stamp (Flying Tilda) as soon as I saw it...I love anything to do with fairies and knew I had to have this stamp!! I can't remember where the butterfly paper came from, but I thought it was perfect for the card. I added some Stickles, sparkly flowers, and rhinestones to add a touch of bling to the card. All in all, I think it turned out pretty cute!!
Sorry for the quick post but I'm off to go and see the movie Eclipse tonight (soooooo excited!!)!! I've heard that it's pretty good and I can't wait to see it!! I'm hoping to have another post for you sometime this weekend with a couple of more cards that I've made, so I will talk to you all later!! Thanks for stopping by to check out my card!!
- For all you Canadians out there, Happy Canada Day!!
Hi everyone!! I can't believe how long it's been since I last posted something on my blog. I had intended to post this card earlier but I wanted to make sure that it had arrived to the recipient as it was a Magnolia-licious mingle card for the month of April.
I'm really still liking the look of easel cards so I used a Magnolia stamp (Tilda With Flowing Hair) to help me create one (I cased the idea for this card from a class that I did at my LSS, The Paper Pickle). I stamped the image with Memento ink on cardstock that I bought from my LSS The Paper Pickle (I can't remember who makes it but I really like it) and coloured the image up with my Stampin' Write markers. The remaining cardstock is from SU! (Certainly Celery and So Saffron) and the patterned paper is from the Taylored Expressions Easter Key Ingredients kit. To finish off my card, I used some ribbon from SU! (So Saffron), a scallop border punch from SU!, some clear rhinestones for some added bling, and some flower stuff to just add that little extra something.
I'm really happy with how this card turned out and really glad to hear that the recipient enjoyed it as well. Thanks for stopping by to check out my latest card...I should have more cards to share with you again soon!!
