Christmas Card

Christmas card made using House Mouse Stamps, I colored with Prisma Pencils.
I asked for Copic Markers for Christmas.

Have a Merry Christmas

Christmas bags made with Tags Bags Boxes and Bows. The cart used was Jolly Holidays. I used my Gypsy and blocked out the faces and used the Peachy Keen stamps. I am putting gift cards in the bags. Gift cards are not my favorite gift, But when this is what the kids have on their list I like to make each one special. Each bag is something that the kids like.

Two questions.

There was a question asked about what the first card was colored with. This card was colored with Prisma pencils. The berries were done in marker.
Secind question, What is stamoing to lose? I started this to get myself moving with the weight loss and the card making. I set a goal for cards that I want to have done by March and a weight loss amount. So I will try to spend more time in my scrap room than in the kitchen. It has been ok, I am not losing but I am not gaining, I also need to get going on the cards. I have 180 cards I want to have done for cards for soliders by March.

December is flying by.

Hello everyone. It is the middle of December and I am so far behind. I was down sick for over two weeks. I did not rest when I first started and I payed for it. I am behind on Christmas decorating and making gifts. We have the trees up and the house is decorated but the trees only have lights on them. I am hoping to get the ornamanets on today. Finshed the last part of my cards, I have stamoed a poem to go into the card to be used for a book mark. I hope to post my cards this week.

Friday, November 19, 2010

It'cold outside

Just got home from the boy's soccer game. It was wet and cold.
I have two cards to post but do not have my camera to take the pictures
Working on the letters for the boys scrapbooks. There are 12 boys and each boy will get a set of names for each player to put in there scrap books. Each mom is making two scrapbook pages for there son, then I will take and make copies of all the boys pages, each player will get their original set and then the copied pages of each boy to but in their books. The books turn out really nice. We did this for the girls last year, and they all loved them. This has been done for the boys in the past and they like them as much as the girls. Once I am finished with Dom's book I will post his page.
Hope all is well.

This is another card that I am doing for the cards for soldiers. I saw this stamp and fell in love with the saying. I like to let my kids know that I believe in them. So now I can send it to others so they can let their kids and family memebes know, that no matter where they are they Believe in them.

Hello Everyone

Life has been busy. When life gets busy the blog is neglected. I am really trying to get better. Below are pictures of my scrap room, scrap Kitty (BOO) and one of the cards I made for the cards for Soldiers.

Cards For Soliders

I signed up on the Cricut web site to make cards for Soldiers. I have completed my first batch of 15. This is my first card. I am really going to try to get a second batch complete. you will have to check out the cricut message board for the Cards For Soliders. There are some really pretty cards.

Scrappy Kitty

This is my kitty He loves to sit with me when I am working on my cards. He loves my Cricut machine. He will lay on the table behind my machine and sleep. Today he found a zip loc back to lay on. There was one time I had gotten up to get something and sat back down and sat on him, He had jumped in my chair. His name is BOO!

New Scrap Room

Happy Thursday

Good Morning Everyone. I have been busy making tags for a tag exchange. They have turned out really cute. I will post them this weekend. I have some Halloween cards I will post as well. The batteries in my camera need replaced. Hope to have new ones by tomorrow.

Tomato update So far the lids on my tomato's are tightly sealed so I am hoping when we open the first jar all well be yummy. I think I will just stick with scrap booking.

Have a great day today. The weekend is almost here. There are no soccer games so I am hoping I get to do some cards this weekend. Need to work on Christmas cards.

Hello Everyone Happy Labor day weekend.

I hope everyone has a happy and safe Labor day.
I hope to post some cards real soon. I have been kind of lazy with post on my blog. I need to get much better. I have so many ideas, it is just getting them going is a slow process.

This is not a card related storey, but I have to share. This is my first time EVER canning. My in laws do it all the time but they live out of state. So I have been making phone calls and looking on the Internet on how to cold can. Well here goes, my husband has a garden (me I do not have a green thumb) He has had the BEST tomato's ever this year. I have been making salsa and the family loves it. So I have decide to can my salsa so the tomato's do not go bad (we have had so many)I decided to do the cold pack, the hubby likes his tomato's whole not mushy. I had everything ready lids on the jars and in the holder ready to put in the HOT BOILING water. Does any one know what happens to a warm jar when placed in HOT BOILING water? Lets I should have known better. No sooner did I drop my 5 jars in the water did two break. Before I knew it my water was filled with tomato's, what a mess. Of course the hubby had to make a joke and I am sure they all will. I have the remaining jars in the new water and so far so good. Keep your fingers crossed.

Good Morning Everyone
Been away for a little while. I attended my first all day scrap on Saturday. We started at 10 am and I left at 10 pm. I did not realize how tired I would be. It was a good time. I worked on some cards that I will put in packets to give to the church to donate for their auction. I also worked on Christmas gift tags. The cards and tags I colored with prisma pencils. I will put them together this week. I will try to get some new ones on later today.
Hope everyone has a great day.

Second book made with the Cinch

This is the secoond book I made and I did a few things different. I really like the Cinch. It is simple to use. Both of these went quick once I had the cover and the back page on. It will take some time and practice on getting my wires closed good on the first try. The first one was to much and the second time it took a couple times to get the wire closed.

First book made with The Cinch

This is the very first book made with the Cinch. I know with time they will get better.

Sunday, June 27, 2010

Happy Sunday

Hello Everyone
Hope your Sunday went well today. I have been working with my Cinch, I have made two books, I will post soon. The first one was so amateur and the second was a little better. I really like this machine and have lots of ideas. I will share as soon as they are made.
Have good Monday and I hope to have those posted by tomorrow.

Happy Sunday! I purchased a Gypsy today...

Hello Everyone!
I purchased a gypsy today. I cannot believe that I did not wait until My b-day (December is to long to wait). I have seen so many neat things made with the gypsy. I wanted to have this before my vacation in July. I will have something to do when I am not driving. This is also another way to take my scrap booking with me.
Please let me know if you have the gypsy and let me know how you like it.

Thanks for stopping.

Happy Sunday

I hope everyone has had a great Sunday. I was able to get three pages done for my daughters scrapbook. I also made a get well card for my sister in law.
My book marks are ready to go, the only thing left is to laminate. All I need is my Your Storey, this should be here on Tuesday.
Have a Great Evening.
Sorry about the dates on my pictures, I did not notice until I posted.

Celebrate Card

I made this card in a class. We used the cuddle bug & embossing folder. I made a template over one flower so when I ran through the cussle bug it only embossed the flower. You will have to get the template just right to your cuddle bug, you may have to try a few before it comes out right.

Grandma & Grandpa's Bakery

This page was made with "From my kitchen cartridge" I used the recipe cards. The letters were from "Plantin Schoolbook" Roly Poly. the paper was from Nana's Kitchen pack.

Friday, June 4, 2010

Happy Friday Everyone

I hope everyone has had a great week.
I have a storey I would like to share with you all. My best friend of 20 years is a single mom of three girls, twin daughters who are 17 and will be seniors in high school and another daughter who is 11. She works two jobs to make sure he girls have everthing they need. She will buy the girls things before she thinks of her self. She does voulnteer work with the company she works for, Also voulnteers at the high school. The reason I was so excited to win the cricut was to give too her and the girls, she has been wanting one for along time. I have a small one that I was taking to her when I saw her this summer. I entered my card in the contest never planning to win. What were the odds? I have the pink expressions and love it. There was no question to what I was going to do with it. She was just as excited as I was when I let her know what I was doing with the cricut. We are already planning on doing some scrapbooking when we vist this summer. I know now we will have a new scrapper with us on the message boards and blogs.
I will have some more cards to post soon.
Enjoy the rest of your day.

Wednesday, June 2, 2010

Happy Wednesday

I am still walking on a cloud. I still cannot believe that I have won.
It is cool sharing my excitement with all of you. It is hard to be excited with a non scrapper. They have no clue what I am talking about.
I will be working on bookmarks for my church. There are a total of 40 adults and kids going. I have 3 family members going, my middle daughter to NYC and my husband and son to Kentucky. I will be scrapping that week.
I will post the bookmarks as soon as they are done.

I hope everyone is having a great day.


Tuesday, June 1, 2010

Happy Memorial Day

Hello Everyon
I hope everyone is having a good Memorial day. I had to work today, no fun for me.
I did have fun on Friday I made some good buys. I have been wanting the Cinch, I finally order this. I then purchased a cartridge at a craft store. With this purchase I had enough free points to get a free cart at Cricut.com. I then went shopping on Saturday and purchased another cartridge. Oh boy and I was not done yet. On Sunday I was looking at the Your Storey / well the price was a bargan I could not pass up. So now I get to wait for all these items to come in.
I am looking forward to coming up with projects to share.

I hope everyone enjoys looking at all the cards. Please leave a comment, I would love to hear what you think. I am new to blogging and would love to learn as much as I can.

Good luck to all who have entered the challenge.

This is the card I made for the My Pink Stamper Challenge. My husband loves to work with tools. I made this card with Every day paper dolls, the grass is from Give a Hoot, The moon is from the George cartridge.

Everyone loved the invitations. They took a lot of time, but worth it. The letters are from wild card and the cap is a stamp from North woods.
