Once Upon A Princess - Angel

My friend that had requested the angel card wanted one for before surgery and one for after. She wanted a serious one and a playful one. The serious one was the card I had made from Inspired Heart. The happy one I selected was from Once Upon A Princess.

I of course had to give her a cute Peachy Keen face and lots of stickles to make her shine. Seam binding, the daisy cuttlebug folder, K & Co. stick pin, gel pen doodling, Prima and DCWV background paper.

Joann's Haul - WOOT!!!

My son had a birthday party to attend today and I decided to make a trip to Joann's. Why you may be asking, well I received a 25% off coupon in the mail for your whole purchase - INCLUDING sale items. (and I have seen a TON of enabling here in the Blog world and on Facebook)

Well here are a few pictures of the items I picked up (0;



I was able to get 3 12x12 DCWV stacks (Guy Stack, Green Stack & Garden Party), 1 8X8 DCWV stack (Citrus), 3 of the Texture value packs, the NEW Cricut cut and emboss system with 2 plate sets (Birthday and Thank You), 2 Memento Dew Drop and 1 Memento large stamp pad, envelopes, a craft mat, a large stamp block, gel pens, google eyes, 1 Inkadinadoo Stamp Set, clearance DCWV note pads and cards and the Formal Affair Cricut cartridge. Now - to use all this stuff!!! I need OKIE to come over and organize for me as I really just find places to put it all and then do not remember what I have. My total savings with that awesome coupon was 184. 72 - YIPPIEE!!

Now I will not be posting this on Facebook because my family looks there but can you believe they do not follow my blog. Hubby was at work and this has all been put away before he gets home - so SHHHHHHHHH!!

So what did you get this past weekend?

Imagine That Blog Hop

Thank You Sandra for setting this Imagine Blog Hop up. Sandra just got her Imagine and was so excited that she wanted some friends to hop with her and show some awesome projects done with the Imagine. Wait until you see who and what she has lined up for you.

I do not use my Imagine very much - but I really need to as every project I do with it I really love. For the hop I made a card for a dear friends husband using Kates Kitchen.



When using my Imagine I like the layered look so I always use that feature. The paper I use in my Imagine is a stack from Walmart that has texture and the pad is only $5 - woot!! The patterned paper is from the DCWV kitchen stack. I used my IRock on the steam from the coffee cup and some seam binding colored with an ink pad. The stamp is from Emma at My Creative Time which is fitting since I sent this card to her husband.

Now, this would not be a Blog Hop without some Blog Candy. For this hop I am giving away a Fiskars stamp set:
I will use Random.org to pick a winner on Monday. Please enjoy the hop I have included the line-up for you just in case you get lost along the way.

Angel Card using Inspired Heart

Hello,
A friend of mine had requested a card for her mother that was going into a surgery for her cancer. She wanted something with an Angel on it to let her know that she was being prayed for continually. Well, I searched through my gypsy girl looking for an Angel image. Well, this past Black Friday I of course HAD to pick up Inspired Heart and have not used it yet. Well, this is the card I came up with and she said her mom loved it.

I used DCWV glitter paper and my gypsy girl to make this image into a shaped card. Gems and a sheer ribbon completed this card.

Hero Art Stamped Card

I met a friend for dinner yesterday and I wanted to give her a card to let her know what her friendship means to me.

The stamped image is from Hero Arts.  The card base from a cricut cartridge, used my swirl cuttlebug embossing folder and inked over the top. Some prima flowers, coloring with Copics and a seam binding ribbon ran over with an ink pad.

She loved it - what do you think?

Inking It Up Crazy - Polka Dot Blog Hop

Hiya Peeps! (Continue down to the previous post to my second Flair and Frills Post)

Kassidy lined up a super fun Blog Hop for you here today. We are Hoppin with Polka Dots! The Polka Dots for my project are used in the paper and in the cuttlebug folder called dots.

This sweet image is called Cheeky Cheery Pie and she is a Greeting Farm stamp colored with my copic markers. (Love them!!!) The paper used is from My Minds Eye tickled pink paper pad. The seam binding I ran over with an ink pad and used a K and Co. stick pin. The Berry-Licious stamp is from My Pink Stamper Fruit and Veggie Punnies.

For this Hop I am offering up some candy. My candy is the easy stitch:
I first saw this used on Erin Lee Creatives site and had to have one. Stitching on our cards and layouts is such a big thing right now and this will help you line up those hand drawn lines. I actually bought a few so that I could give some away as well. So please leave a comment on this post and I will pick a winner on the 21st. I would love if you were a follower too (0;

Now, make sure you stop at all the other sites as there are some WONDERFUL projects to share with SO much inspiration.

Flaunt It Fridays - Birthday Bash Blog Hop

Hello Again,

Well today we are not only Flaunting it we are Hop Hop Hoppin too! And you DO NOT want to miss a thing as Peachy Keen Stamps is sponsoring us with 2 prizes - WOOT!!! They will be blessing someone with a set of Wide Eyed Kids and the Bushy Tailed Assortment.  


Now this week we were challenged to use the Birthday Bash cartridge utilizing the image of the Bunny with the Present. Here is my Birthday Bunny - I made a pillowbox with the help of the Wrap It up cartridge:


The pillowbox was made with paper from the DCWV Celebration stack, ribbon from Michaels and the rest of the paper was stash!! With having an 8 year old we get invited to lots of parties so this will work perfect for a gift card and some candy.

For my surprise project I made this cute card also utilizing the Birthday Bash cartridge:

The card base is from Birthday Bash as well as the cut of the cute little snail. I stickled her up, added some pearls on her antenna, doodling and a brad from K and Co. The paper is all from my stash - remnants to be exact.

I am actually in Texas this weekend at the Circle Stampede and will be returning on Monday so I will pick a winner Monday evening and post the winner on Tuesday.

TGF Stamps - Ruby

Seriously - I am not kidding when I say I LOVE The Greeting Farm stamps. They are so my style and I love coloring them up and making em into cards. This cutie is called Ruby and I made her to send to a friend.

Ruby was colored with my Copic markers. I used a spellbinders die to cut the frame in the background and my daisy cuttlebug folder for dimension. That seam binding I ran my Memento ink pad over (LOVE IT!!!), the stamp is from Fiskars, prima flowers, brads and the background paper is from a 6x6 stack from Cosmo Cricket Material Girl.

I hope she likes it.

Inking It Up Crazy - Design Team Post Man Card

Hello Everyone,
Our Design Team challenge this week was to create a Man Card. I know I am always drawn to sparkle, flowers and ribbon so I wanted to stay away from these things for a Man card.

Here is my card:
This fancy car is from the Nifty Fifties cartridge. I wanted it to be shiny and have some pizazz. The background paper is from a stack from Hobby Lobby and the stamp is from My Pink Stamper. Not sure who this is going to be given to yet but so glad I have this for when needed.

If you get lost along the way here is the hop order:

TGF Stamps - Another Creeper Crew Monday

Happy Saturday - Well I am buried in things I need to get done before heading to Dallas for the Cricut Stampede (and what I am doing - checking out blogs!!). What is wrong with this picture. Anyway, as I have mentioned I am in love with The Greeting Farm Stamps. A little while back I introduced you to Creeper Crew Monday, I just love this image and colored her again using different colors.

I colored her up with my Copics, used PTI ribbon, a spellbinders die, swiss dots cuttlebug folder and paper from my stash. That stamp is from Pink Cricut Girls Just Want to Have Fun set.  I do not think she is creepy at all.

Have a beautiful Saturday!!

Inking It Up Crazy - Design Team Post Layout

Hello Again My Friends,

Kassidy challenged us for this design team post to do a layout. I am a 2 page layout kind of girl and I am WAY behind in my scrapbooking. Due to this I like to use lots of pictures. For this layout the model is my 18 yr old daughter and I used Create A Critter:


Yes I did say this lovely model is 18yrs old - LOL!! I only started scrapbooking 4 years ago and started on my baby at the time who is now 8. My daughters will not let me live it down so I am trying to go back and scrap them as well. If you are not a scrapbooker you do not take as many pictures so this has been a bit challenging. They are really happy when they see me put their pictures on my pages, and I have to say it makes me happy to see them as well.

Oh - here is the beautiful 18 year old now:


Now, make sure you check out what all the other Inking It Up Crazy design team members have put together for you. They have inspired me to get cracking on my layouts again - it is just that card making gives me such quick gratification. 

Blessings, Jenny

TGF Stamps - Digital CC Drummer

Hello All and Happy Monday,
Yesterday my son had a birthday party to attend. The boy he was attending the party for received a drum set for Christmas and when I was looking at the digital stamps from TGF I HAD to purchase this one and whip up a card for the party.

I colored this with my Copic Markers. The silver was actually a gel pen that was pretty sparkly. The stamp is from My Pink Cricut and the background paper was from a Hobby Lobby stack. The image was on an action wobble and my son and the birthday boy loved it.

What do you think? Thanks for looking and leaving a comment (I LOVE comments!!)

Blessings, Jenny

Flaunt It Fridays - Twinkle Toes

Hello Friends, Our team has sure come up with some awesome ways to Flaunt your stuff. This week we were assigned the cartridge Twinkle Toes: Use the Girl from the Top Left Corner in the Pink Outfit. Well, if you are familiar with Lite Cartridges you will understand this. They come with a different handbook. It is a trifold with the images and there are not as many layers.

Well here is my adorable little girl. I have made a card this week and put her center stage!
I cut her at 4 inches and hid all the features of her face with my gypsy so that I could use an adorable face stamp from Peachy Keen. This face is from the Wide Eyed Kids face set. I added some rhinestones for a belt, earrings and necklace. Ribbon from Michales on the drapes and in her hair. I used the cuttlebug to give the drapes some dimension, doodling and finished it all off with a stamp from My Creative Time.

Now - Lets see how you can flaunt your stuff!

Blessings, Jenny

TGF Stamps - Cheeky Cherry Pie

Hello - My name is Jenny and I am addicted to The Greeting Farm stamps -- seriously --- these images are so cute. For this card I used Cheeky Cheery Pie:

I used Prisma watercolor pencils and a blending pen. There are some stickles on her headband, ribbon from Michaels, cherries are embellishments from Doodlebug, paper from my stash, border punch from Stampin Up and of course a My Creative Time sentiment stamp.

Hope you like her!

Inking It Up Crazy - Design Team Post Home Decor

Hello Again and Happy Monday,

Our design team post for Inking It Up Crazy was to make a Home Decor Project. I was Blessed with a Paper Doll wood cut out and decided to use it and make a leprechaun to decorate for St. Patrick's Day.

I cut everything at 9 from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. I used a Peachy Keen Wide Eyed kids face, Martha Stewart gold glitter and some doodling. All paper is from my stash. On the same page were these shamrocks that I cut at 8 and 4.

Don't forget to check out all the other Inking it Up Crazy Designers posts today as they have some terrific stuff to share with you.

Blessings, Jenny
