Paperbag Album

Here is the first paperbag album that I made with my daughter. We actually went to the YMCA together and made it with some of the other kids there. This was mine:

I used 2 paperbags and alternated between solid cardstock and designer paper. I used the Close to Cocoa, Holiday Lounge and Merry Moments Designer Series papers for my kits. Not all the kits had the same paper. I used my Christmas Punch, Patterned Pines, A Holly Jolly Christmas, and Temporada Navidena for my stamps. I wanted the kids to have a few to choose from. My daughter left some of her solid pages blank to write on though, so that is another option that the kids could have.
If you would like to buy one or more of these kits, I still have some available here. The come with the precut paper, ribbon and bags.

Christmas Class, Christmas Class!!!!

Well, I have been a busy little bee for the past couple of weeks. I have been working on this and that, and well here is one of the classes that I have coming up.

I got the design for almost all of these from Gretchen, but I did make some changes here and there, and I created a girl elf to go with the boy. These are boxes for little Christmas goodies. They were a bit of work, but I've been working with migraines again, so that might have had something to do with it. If you are interested in taking the class, or have any questions feel free to email me for more information.

Kraftin' Kimmie/Stampin' for the Weekend/ Wags 'n Whiskers/Greeting Farm

This is a card I whipped up for my nephew's upcoming birthday. I used the sketch from Stampin' for the Weekend and I used buttons for the Wags 'n Whiskers challenge. I also had to use circles for Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge, and NO DP for The Greeting Farm Challenge. 
Here is the sketch:

High Hopes/A Spoon Full of Sugar/Copic Creations

Here is a card that I made for 3 challenges. The first was High Hopes where we had to use 3 Flowers, 2 Brads, and 1 sentiment. I used the 3 flowers, and I used one regular brad and one Build a Brad from Stampin' Up! for the North Star.
For A Spoon Full of Sugar, we had to use the theme "Baby's First Christmas". That was pretty easy.
For Copic Creations, we had to use Gold. I used this ribbon I got from an online store, and I tried to use the yellow to make more of a gold felling.

Here is the card:

I used the another sheet from the Christmas Cocoa Specialty paper from SU. It's crazy how many cards you can get decorative back and what nots for cards. I also used my Photo Corners punch for the inside and the Modern Label punch for the back of the sentiment and the Word Window punch for the sentiment.

Thanks for checking out my work,

Tuesday Morning Sketches/Wags n Whiskers

Here is a card that I made for the Tuesday Morning Sketches and the Wags n Whiskers Challenges. For the Tuesday Morning Sketch we had to use 3 Decorative Papers, 2 embellishments and 1 flourish. For the Wags n Whiskers challenge we had to "stich 'em up".
Here is my card:

I used the Christmas Cocoa Specialty Paper from Stampin' Up! along with my Eyelet Border Punch for the inside of the card. I hope you guys like it.

Delightful Sketches Sketch 11

Here is the cute sketch I had to work with this week for Delightful Sketches:

Here is the card that I came up with:

Once again I used up the scraps I had from the last card to do this one. I used my SU and Sizzix embossing folders. I'm trying to get all of my Christmas cards done, but I don't want them all to be the same. I just realized though that I haven't done any of my Thanksgiving card!!!! I better get started on those next week!

1 Card 3 Challenges

Hola Mi Gente!!!!!
Here is a card that I made for 3 Challenges, and it is also the card that will be going to Noah on behalf of someone else.
I used the Sketch from High Hopes, curtosey of Lacey the magnificent. I also added in the "Snow much fun" from Cupcake Craft Challenge and "create a scene" from A Spoon Full of Sugar. I'm going to look into seeing if I can set up the links for the Challenge blogs. I hate not being able to do that, and I don't think you can buy anything right off of the Challenge blogs. I'll update this post with the links later if I can.
Any who, on with the show.... Here is the wonderful sketch I had to work with:

Here is the card that I made:

I used the Sizzix snow flakes and SU Petals-A-Plenty embossing folders. I also used the SU Real Read cardstock and the Christmas Cocoa Specialty Paper.

Hope you guys like it,

Card for a Friend

I wanted to make a card for a very close friend of mine. Every time I need her she is always there and most of the time my "visit" with her is to clean up some kind of mess with the courts. It's a long story, but anyway...... I wanted to make a card for her to thank her.
I also used the card for some challenges Tuesday Morning Sketches and Copic Creations. For Tuesday Sketches we had to use a sketch and for Copic Creations we had to use red hair.
Here is the sketch:

Here is my card:

Once again, because of Stampin' Up! rules I can't tell you a thing about this card, but it's a cutie!!!

1 Card 3 Challenges

Hola Mi Gente!!!!!

This is a card that I made for 3 challenges. The first was a sketch from A Spoon Full of Sugar, the second we had to use tags for Kraftin' Kimmie, and the last was High Hopes where we had to use snowflakes.

Because of Stampin' Up! rules, I can only tell you about the Stampin' Up! products I used, and I can no longer link to the sites where there are other people selling like product that Stampin' Up! offers. I quit doing challenges because of this, but I can hold back no longer. I will join the challenges, but if I don't qualify because I have to keep my mouth closed then so be it. I'll have fun making the cards just for your viewing!!!!

ANYWAY, back to the card. Here is the sketch that we had to use:

Here is the card that I created:

I used the Christmas Cocoa and Holiday Lounge paper from Stampin' Up!.

Where I've been Part 1........

Cards for the Cure Event! Here are some of the pictures of our Cards for the Cure event that we had October 10th 2009. We were able to raise $207 for the Donna Foundation here in Florida.

Here are two photos of the Ladies hard at work and an overview of Joey's Studio.

Here is a Picture of Mary winning the GRAND PRIZE!!! All of us wanted that AMAZING apron. So lucky!
Here is a picture for the Amazing team that I am so privileged to be a part of. Everything I know I have learned from Joey. She's the one in the middle with all the bling on her apron. That's how you know who's the boss. She is an incredible upline, and I would not trade in my team for the world. Thank you SO much Joey for introducing me to this Lovable World!!!!

Here is a picture of my VERY FIRST CUSTOMER!!!!! I met Brenda at the Cards for the Cure event, and she just made my day. I was putting so much in to the Stampin' Up! business and not seeing too many results, and then she came along and showed me the light. THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH BRENDA FOR SHOWING ME WHY I STARTED ALL THIS IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!!!!!!

Asbury Pizza donated Pizza to feed us all and they also gave us some frequent buyer cards. If you are ever in the area, stop by and have a bite. Their Pizza is SOOOOOOO Delicious I would eat it every week if my other half would let me! ;)

We had so much fun and it was all for a Great cause. I can't wait for next year.


Where I've been part 2.....

These are the adorable invitations I made for the party. I made 25 of each of these, and there will be matching candy cans too!!!! I blacked out some of the information..... just so there aren't any party crashers!

I LOVED the way they turned out. I ended up using crystal effects instead of clear embossing for the Cookie Monster and Elmo invitations. The embossing powder started to stick to some of the invitations, and it was getting on my nerves. The crystal effects took a while to dry, but it was where I wanted it to be and it all came out so smooth. Hope you guys have a great turn out! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR CHOOSING ME TO MAKE YOUR INVITATIONS AND CANS!!!


Where I've been part 3....

I have been putting together another FUN order for my Family back home!!! Here are the candy cans that I made using empty baby formula cans. These are 25 of Cookie Monster to go with the invitations. I still have the Elmo, Big Bird, and Bert and Ernie to go. However to cut on shipping cost, instead of sending the cans to me and them me sending them back complete; we decided that I would do all the lids for the other 75 cans and just send the wrappers back home. I really enjoyed making these, even though it was a lot of work. I think the end result was great!

Here are the cans ready to leave me. You can see part of the picture of where I photo shopped the baby in with the rest of the characters! Hope you guys enjoy them.

Mojo Monday

Here is the sketch that we had to use:

Here is the card that I made:

I used the Hous of Haunts stamp set from my Stampin' Up collection, Basic Black Cardstock, Pumpkin Pie Textured Cardstock, Whisper White Cardstock, and Cast A Spell paper. Simple card to make, and probably not my best work, but I like the way it turned out.

Card Holders/Candy Holders

Here are so ADORABLE boxes that I found in the blog world. I used the Yoyo Yellow Cardstock along with the Cast-A-Spell paper from non other than SU! I used the Summer Picnic paper for the small box.
Here are the insides of the boxes....
Hope you enjoyed this post,
