Hello! I am soooo glad it is Friday! Oddly enough this week has FLOWN by - this never happens to me...usually the 'flying by' is reserved for weekends...haha. I am out of town visiting some friends this weekend, so there will be no crafting for me! Hope everyone enjoys their weekends!

Becky Oehlers 'Compose a Card' Challenge #1


Becky Oehlers over at Hemidemisemiquaver has decided to start doing a weekly challenge on her blog, and I have decided I am going to participate! She gives a set of parameters to follow as far as cuts and colours go, and then you are free to create at will!

Here is this weeks challenge:

I did a video showing how I put my card together:

And here is the finished product! I rarely use Melon Berry, so this was a nice challenge for me!

I used Papertrey Inks Background Basics: Text Style stamp set, and my Cricut Jubilee cartridge.

Hope you like it!

Paper Bag Mini Album - Update


I posted a video awhile ago showing how I made my Paper Bag Mini album, and I said I would do another post when I actually finished the book.
WEEKS and WEEKS have passed, and I finally got around to doing some work on the album. I decided to use it as my 'Goals and Accomplishments' book for 2010, so it is actually STILL not completed, because I am leaving pages to actually do when I complete my goals! :) However I have done a few pages, so this is a little show and tell of those pages. As I complete more pages I will take pictures and post them!

Hope you enjoy!

Card - Baby On the Way

Hello! I have two videos today.

The first is of an image I colour with copics. I am a copic newbie so it really is a starting point for me with my shading skills and whatnot.

The second is of a card I made for a bloggy friend Janis, using the image I coloured.

Hope you enjoy them!

Unmounting Stamps

Hi! This is just a quick video showing how I unmount my stamps. I don't have a ton of room in my home (we live in a teeny 2 bedroom apartment), so unmounting my stamps is a definite space saver! If any of you do this and you do it differently, please share any tips you have with me!

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!

Stampin' Up! Haul

Hello! I just got a huge package of Stampin' Up goodies and wanted to share them with you. I figured the best way to do this was in a video. Be sure to check out the new Occasions Mini catalogue and the Sale-a-Bration catalogue on the Stampin' Up! website. The deals are fantastic!

My Supply Guide

Hey guys! Just a quick video on a project I have been working on here and there. This is a book I put together that will eventually include all of my supplies for quick reference. It is quite useful and a super time saver. Not my original idea - got the idea from Carmen at the forum. Hope you like it!

Quick Hello!

Hello!!! I have been bad bad bad and have neglected my blogging for almost a whole month! I was home for the holidays visiting family, and have been trying to get organized since returning. Not an easy task! Haha...

Anyway, I have been playing with a few projects since returning, and promise to share them VERY soon! I am finally getting some work done on my paperbag album (check HERE for a video I did showing how to make them) - it is a 2010 them and I like how it is turning out so far! I think I am keeping it as a 2010 journal of sorts. More on that soon.

I am also starting to play with one of my VERY exciting Christmas very own sewing machine! I used to play with my mom's when I was younger, making little purses and bags for myself and my sister, and a few for friends. I haven't really done major things with the machine, however now that I have my own I am looking forward to learning how to do more with it, and especially to use it on my papercrafting projects. VERY exciting! (Thanks Santa!) :)

Well, I do promise to blog more now that I am settled, and I hope to have some fun projects and videos to share with you very soon! Hope everyone is well!
