November SAS Card 1

Time is just flying by! I can't believe the last Stamp a Stack of the year is just a few days away. I have fallen a bit behind on a few projects so I will be working fervently to catch up. It doesn't help that I have been dealing with a neck injury & a big personal situation but praise God all is improving! God is so good! He has been so amazingly faithful & ever present in everything that has been going on. I have seen God move like I never have before. It has been absolutely awesome to see God take a bad situation that satin meant to destroy someone & watch God take that & work it out for His glory! I am so blessed to have been able to have been used by God to speak life to that situation & watch God work. Ok on to the first card for our November 10th Stamp a Stack!

I'm not sure all the glitter shows up but this card is nice & sparkly! Thanks for stopping by & I will be back with more soon!

Big Winner!!!!

I am SO excited & grateful to have been chosen by Paper Crafts magazine as one of the winners of the World Card Making Day contest! I have to thank God for blessing me with such a fun & fullfilling creative outlet & a group of some of the most amazing stamping friends a girl could ask for! Here is the link to the big announcement
I'm so honored that my card will be feautured in the March/April issue of Paper Crafts magazine! Once the issue is on newstands I can post a photo but until then its under wraps Lol! I actually entered 2 cards, one was 100% SU & the other was a  mixture of stuff I had on hand. I rarely create with anything that isn't SU but I went out of my comfort zone & gave it a try. Since that card wasn't a winner I can give you a peek at it!
I tried to get a faux copic look using my SU markers & I thought it came out pretty good! Thanks for stopping by & hope you have a chance to take advantage of the SU stamp sale happening TODAY ONLY!!

So Lovely! The new Autumn Accents die is pretty fabulous too!
I have finally narrowed down which of the 5 cards we will be making this month. Now I just need to take a few photographs. I'll be back later to share those.

October's Technique Tuesday

This morning I had to go have my neck & shoulder checked since I injured myself on Friday moving something I shouldn't have. Doctor gave me some meds & said to ice it & it should start feeling better in a couple days. But anyway the show must go on!!
It's time for Technique Tuesday! Tomorrow I will be showing my gals how to make beautiful tulle flowers from our new scalloped tulle ribbon! My up upline Beverlee Morales showed these & I absolutely LOVE them! Here is the card we will be making tomorrow...

The flower really is the star so I wanted to keep it very simple. Plus you can't go wrong with a little of that fabulous Champagne glimmer paper, right?!
Thanks for stopping by & hope you have a great week!

My Girls Made It!

Well Friday the girls decided they wanted to do one of their favorite crafting videos on YouTube! Then they pick what project they want to make & promptly begin to tell me how to do it. Oh Yes, YouTube makes them a crafting expert! LOL! The ornament from the cover of the Holiday catalog was the winning project. Let me say this, it was quite the adventure. First they chose what colors to use. #2 chose Pumpkin Pie & Crumb Cake. #3 chose Pool Party & Real Red. They stamped 20 of each of the large & small ornaments, then we had a catastrophe...#3 spilled a cup of water all over her project. She had a melt down! It took them quite awhile to stamp all those ornaments & she was devastated. Of course I told her not to worry & I would restamp the ornaments for her. So with in a few minutes she had all her ornaments back & we were ready to move on to the next step of die cutting them all. This turned out to be too much labor for #3 & after doing half of them she escaped to go play outside. But #2 was set on finishing her project so she die cut them & I folded them. Then she put them all together like it showed in the video. Then came her favorite part GLITTER! Next time we have got to put down lots of newspapers, I am still cleaning up glitter 2 days later! Anyway back to our adventure. Time for assembly! I worked the hot glue & she did the rest. Of course she had to have a bow, crystal button, & pearl so I helped her get that together & we were done...4 hours later!!! But it came out SO pretty!

I started making mine & I think with out any little helpers I can complete it in less than an hour so don't be afraid to make on of these beauties! Especially since when you purchase the supplies to make it you get the Festive Paper Piercing Pack FREE!

I hope you have some crafty plans for today! Maybe I will be able to finish making the Thank You cards I needed but since its 3am & I haven't been to bed yet I'm not exactly sure how that will work out. Its ok because technically I have already made a couple cards between midnight & now so Woo Hoo for actually making a card on World Card Making Day! The girls have their activities in the morning but if I can get in a little nap I am sure I will be ready to spend the rest of the day creating some little paper hugs to send to my friends. Ok now I think I may be a bit delirious! I better just show you a pretty card I made today & head off to bed...

So many choices!!!

I absolutely LOVE making Christmas cards! I am still working on which samples to use for which classes. Luckily I have 2 Stamp a Stacks coming up so I get to make 10 card designs! Actually I have completed 5 already. I was playing with the idea of doing a purple snowflake card  & here are the 2 I came up with.
They use basically the same cardstock, I kept one very simple & the other is just a little more embellished but still very easy to mass produce. I love how perfectly this card would fit for a winter birthday or a thank you! So my family voted on which one they thought we should make now its your turn! Snowflake or Banners?
Sometimes its hard for me to narrow it down so I appreciate your input!
Thanks for visiting & I hope your day is blessed!

October Stamp a Stack Card 2

At our last Stamp a Stack my friends mentioned that Christmas thank you cards would be useful so I decided to add a pretty thank you card to our October Stamp a Stack! They can choose either color combo & of course they can also stamp a Christmas greeting instead of the thank you. I love how simple adding a bit of bling is with the fabulous glimmer papers! I saw a beautiful card by Jenni Pauli & it inspired these cards. 
Thanks for taking a peek today!
