Publications

Well Happy New Year everyone!  Here we are in the year 2012, I can't believe it. Do you have any resolutions?  Do you have a word for this year?  I haven't really thought much about it, we shall see.

I thought I would post my first cards of 2012 with those that were published in the December 2011 CARDS magazine.  This first one made with Bella Blvd is rather fitting isn't it?



This one is made with some Sassafas (so sad they are gone) and some Unity.


I did most of my 'chores' yesterday so I hope to play in my (clean) scraproom for most of today.  What are you doing today?

Favorite cards of 2011

With the year winding to a close here, I thought I would post my favorite card for the year 2011.  Once again participating in the Year in Review Blog Hop.

Miles Between Us

Well it is time for another Wee Memories challenge and this week we have a new challenge for you.  The challenge is 'New' - could be anything related to new - products, techniques or something new (baby, house, job, new years...)



I decided to use some new products.  I just got a new pack of Love Me by My Mind's Eye and some new Peppermint Divine Twine and I paired them up with this Love Letter Kaylee image from Some Odd Girl that I have had for awhile now but not used and finally with my new Unity December KOTM that just arrived this week.  Inside I stamped the remaining sentiment.  I will be sending this card to my friend whom I try to keep in touch with but certainly not as much as we should.


I used the sketch from Mojo Monday:

This is also for the SOG Love inspiration challenge and the City Crafter challenge - Make the Cut

Favorite layouts of 2011

With the year winding to a close here, I thought I would post my favorite layouts for the year 2011.  I couldn't post a couple of my favorites as they are picked up for publication!  This is for the Year in Review Blog Hop hosted by Karin.

I've been pinned!

Ok, so secretly I have wanted to see one of my projects on Pinterest, so it was kinda a 'goal' for 2012.  It is a nice feeling that others like your work and that is why I share.  I love doing what I do and if others like it, then it is a bonus.  Anyhow I was surprised to see that I had been pinned! Yay and 3 items of mine have been pinned, that makes me happy.  All Santa items (my how I love Santa), some tags and a card.  The card is October Afternoon, and the tags are Echo Park and Pretty Little Studio ones.



Baby It's Cold Outside.

Ok, so I made a mistake and published this to early so if you saw it already  - Julie E I know you did, I had to delete the earlier post ;)  sorry about that.

It feels good to get back into my craft room to play... I didn't craft for a couple of days ;)

I really liked this sketch from Let's Scrap so I made a card for it.
For my card I used my Pink Paislee Snow Day papers along with my Winter Wonderland Cricut cartridge to cut out the skates.  I also used a Flashcard from Pretty Little Studio and of course some Blossom Twine from The Twinery.   For a tutorial on how to create these cute little pompoms please go to The Ribbon Carousel blog, as I have it up there.

My Sister in Law

It felt good to do something just for myself and not only that but finally a layout!  I used Echo Park's Happy Days to scrap this photo of me and my Sister in Law, I am very lucky to have her as a SIL and a friend, there is no one more giving and caring than her.  Of course I have topped the layout off with some Honeydew twine from The Twinery and some SRM Stickers.

Sweet Rainbow

I am over the Christmas projects (hopefully getting my stuff put away this weekend) and am looking forward to the new year.  I thought I would start with a couple of colorful challenges:


The first is the DYSU challenge:

Next up is the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge - I went with the colors.


For my card I used the Sugar Rush stamp set, along with some twine from The Twinery.



New Inspired By

My New Inspired By challenge is up.  Be sure to stop by and see what the new challenge is.
