Okay enough rant lol... 

"Use Your Stamps Monday" is a personal challenge I have to use my stamps more and by all means I encourage you guys to join me :-) 

I used Altenew Floral Motifs Stamps and Dies and a couple stamps from Inkadinkado. 

My clean and simple card - Diemond Dies Nested Dies

I made a Shaker Easel Card and I love it! 

 Thanks so much for visiting me today and I will talk to you again real soon ;-)

Happy Hump Day crafty peeps :-)

Use Your Stamps Monday #2 and #3

Morning crafty friends :-) 

Ok so I know it's not "Monday" I had a frustrating day with technology yesterday and when I got things sorted out and working... all I wanted to do was walk away from the computer lol... hence why this is going up "Tuesday" UGH! Better late than never :-) 

So because I forgot last week post yikes (getting old?) we are going to double it! 

"Use Your Stamps Monday" is a personal challenge I have with myself to use them more often but I welcome you to join me. Check out my YouTube channel HERE

Always Together...

Hi crafty friends :-) 

Hump day it is! 

Today is my turn on Where Ideas Bloom blog sharing my "Toujours Ensemble" French for "Always Together" envelope mini album. This album came together very quickly using the Kraft Envelopes from WIB store as my pages, Kraft Twine Cord as my closure and Gourd Pin (I used alcohol ink to change it's color) to hang my charm... all items mentioned are from the store.

Paper and chipboard collection is from Frank Garcia's "The Archivist"

Thanks for visiting me and commenting, really appreciate your time :-)
Until next time...

Use Your Stamps Monday Challenge #1

Hello crafty friends :-) 

It's a new week and something new on my Youtube channel starting today Monday. I'm calling it "Use Your Stamps Monday" challenge, the main purpose of this monthly challenge is to get everyone to use their stamps! This started with me doing this as a personal challenge and decide to extend it to my crafty friends and friends of friends :-) 

We all have a lot of stamps and sometimes they are forgotten because we have something "new" to play with. So I encourage you to play along with me and get those stamps out and get creating! I'll have a drawing at the end of each month, so check out the video for how to play... it's easy! 

Here are my cards I made with my stamp image from Inkadinkado

First card is a clean and simple card, base is Spellbinders "A2 Floral Ribbon Threader" die set.

 Sentiment from Justrite Stamp set "Sending You Sunshine"

Second card is very dimensional and shabby with the same stamp image

I hope you all check out the challenge video and play along. 

Thanks for visiting and commenting, I'd love to hear what you think of my cards and challenge :-)

Have a Cupcake :-)

Hi everyone :-) 

It's Wednesday in yet another fast week!

I have another celebration card to share and inspire you with... Look at this yummy Cupcake from the Where Ideas Bloom store! And it's GUILT/FAT FREE!!! lol... 

I colored the cupcake wrapper with markers, add a glitter bow from the store, for the frosting and heart I heat embossed it with glittered embossing powder and added liquid pearls for the sprinkles... Yummy right?!?! 

As you can see I did quite a few layering and added flowers and pearl stamens from the store as well. 

Thanks for stopping by and hope you would check out Where Ideas Bloom store and blog ;-)
