Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day! I thought I would share the card I made for my husband with you all. It is my first bikini card. It was kinda fun. I wish I had had other DSP though. I am in dire need of some fun dsp so this is what I had to work with. So the top picture is the front of the card and the bottom picture is the back. Oh I forgot to draw my cleavage lines in....guess ill have to do that. Anyways I used apricot appeal for the skin color then some dsp I got from Michaels or somewhere. I used ribbon for the straps and a brad in the middle just for looks. For the back I added a little xoxo stamp (I knew I would use it someday) kinda thought it looked like a little tattoo. I thought it was cute. Ill have to figure out where I got the template for the card and link it here. I hope he likes it.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a Lovely day!

Valentines day treats

Well Wesly is in preschool and I will have to say its a lot of work and money for parents, I never realized it. Well today was his valentines day party at school so i threw together little treat bags for everyone. Sorry the picture is kinda bad, it was 10 last night when I finished and just wanted to be done. They were pretty easy to make. I just used a piece of black adn white cs, stamped the skunk from pun fun and colored him in. On the back I used a white gel pen to put who it was for and from. That was that. Simple and easy but I thought they came out cute.
Have a great day!

A Birthday Card

I have a birthday coming up next weekend for a frinds daughter so I thought I should make a card for a change. I tell people to make their cards instead of buying them, however I dont do it. So I thought maybe I should start. This is the first card Ive made with an intentions of giving it away, how terrible is that. So anyways, I used ruby red (i think), with chocolate chip and bashful blue. The DSP I used came from michaels and I think I got the brads at target or something. I used the crazy for cupcakes set which I really do love but havent really used. Ok well this is gonna be it cause my kids are terrorizing my house, quite literally. They are 3 and 1 and just broke one of those really hard plastic battons and dumped the glitter and everything all over my floor. And my three year old dumped my brads all over... no wonder I have a headache everyday!

Hope you have a better day than me!

6x6 scrap page

I am determined to like making 6x6 scrapbook pages so this is my second attempt. I must say that I do really like this page. I am going to make it a two page spread but havent gotten to it yet. I made this one last night so hopefully tonight I will get to the second page. My goal really is to do a whole book, but thats a little optimistic for me so we'll see. Anyways, this is a picture of my son Wesly when he was 4months old. I used bashful blue for the background and stamped stars from Nursery Necessities on it using bashful blue ink and versamark. I scalloped the edge of a piece of chocolate chip paper and then cut some tangerine stips. I used Kiwi Kiss for the matter behind the picture. I used markers to color in the boat and cut it out. Then I glued it all together and VOILA! it was done. It was a very quick page to make once I figured out what I wanted to do. Thats always the hardest part lol. I hope you enjoyed my page. Hopefully I will post the other one tomorrow.
Have a scrapalicious day!

Pictures from my workshop

So I told you I would post pictures from my workshop the other night so here they are. I do have very terrible lighting around here and didnt feel like adjusting it. So I hope these will do. These are the little thank you bags I gave to everyone that came. They were very simple to make and make awesome gifts. You could decorate them for any season or occassion you need. Its just a cellophane bag with the top note topper. I used the scallop circle punch, 1 3/8 circle and 1 1/4 circles punches. Find a stamp and some peppermint patties and your all set! The girls loved them!

This is what we made. They each made a box with 2 3x3 cards. They got to choose which colors they wanted for their box and which stamps and everything so they could make it their own. I kept the cards basic because some of them had never stamped before and i didnt want to overwhelm them or anything. I think it worked out good. They all had fun and liked the projects. So there ya have it... Guess I oughta get back to reality and be a mom now. Have a great day!
