Long time, no post.

Sorry I've been MIA. I have been scrapbooking but just mainly layouts.

I recently ran across an ad on for some Stampin' Up sets. She had 4 sets pictured and wanted $20. I called her to ask if she wanted $20 per set or $20 for the whole lot. She said for the whole lot! I was all over that steal. When I went to get the stamps, she handed me a Wal-mart sack with not 4 sets of stamps but 6 sets. 5 of the sets are Stampin' Up! I was in complete shock! So, I had to tell my fearless leader, Ellie, about this great find. She, of course, wanted me to put them to use. I haven't been able to get to all the sets but here is what I've started with.

I'll try and use the rest of the sets soon and post!

Wedding Card

Here is a wedding card that I made for a wedding we went to this past weekend. I started off with this:

I like the look but felt it was missing something.

This is my final product:

I don't know how the bride and groom felt about it but I was pretty pleased with the end result.

Backpack Challenge

I am part of a Stampin' Up group and our fearless leader, Ellie, challenged us to make these backpacks.

I didn't make mine into a backpack per's my take on the challenge:

If you'd like the instructions on how to make the backpacks, check out Stamp Vamp's Stamp Happens blog. She has a video showing how to put them together.

Cards, cards, and more cards.

I haven't posted to my blog in forever so I figured I'd share some cards that I've been working on.

Just a simple card using the cute little penguin stamp and some scraps of paper. I used some jewels that I found in the jewelry making department of my local Hobby Lobby.

This is just a simple thank you card. The flower is a stamp from a Close to My Heart stamp set. I stamped it in brown on white cardstock, cut it out and placed a small pink brad in the middle. The thank you is a stamp from a Provo Craft set. The paper is just scraps.

I made this card using a set of Studio G stamps. I have no clue what I'll use it for but wanted to make something using those infamous stamps.

I found this sheet of paper in my stash. I wanted to see how many cards I could make using this one sheet of paper. This is the end result.

One more! I got a Cuttlebug today and wanted to play with it. The Cuttlebug comes with a set of embossing folders and a postage stamp die cut. I used the cupcake embossing folder and the die cut for this card.

Not my best work but it'll do for last minute.

Another birthday card.

I needed a birthday card for my father-in-law that I could do in a jiffy! I had saw a really neat card idea on the Cricut message board that accommodate gift cards. I thought it was a cool idea and decided to give it a try myself. I'd like to say a special thanks to taz11693 from the message board for sharing.

Marker storage

Cricut has released markers to use in place of the blade in their machine. I kept mine in the original packaging but after so many uses, the packaging was beginning to fall apart. I needed to find some kind of storage. Today I received a container of ribbon from a friend. Its the ribbon you get in the dollar section at Target. After I took all the ribbon out, I went to throw the container in the garbage and then thought "Hey! I bet my markers will fit in that!" Sure enough, its just the right height. So, I set off to alter the container and here it is.


I created this card for my uncle's birthday. He likes to hunt so I used the Cricut Design Studio to make a moose hiding in the grass. I used the Animal Kingdom cartridge for the moose and the ZooBalloo cartridge for the tree and grass. All was cut using my Cricut machine.

My first blog

I've decided to stary my own blog. I love to scrapbook so I figured this would be a great way to share my creations with everyone.

Here we go...
