More Cards.....

I am SO enjoying being in the creative mood and taking the time to post here. I really hope to maintain activity during 2013 to be spending time doing something I absolutely love.

Here is another card I worked on to add to my stash:
This is another stamp set from My Favorite Things that I colored with my Prism pencils. I used a spellbinder to cut her out, ribbon, pop dots,  and the snowflake cuttlebug folder for some dimension on the background paper.

Have a wonderful day celebrating the end of 2012 with family and friends and ring in 2013 safely and with so much love!

Be Blessed, Jenny

Working on Card Stash

In November I took advantage of some big sales going on at My Favorite Things and bought LOTS of stamps. Well, my hubby bought me a TV for Christmas for my scrap area so I got to work on some cards yesterday to add to my stash (which is extremely LOW). Everything I used to make these cards are from things I already had so I cannot really give specifics but if there is something that you would like to know I will definitely try to track it down for you.

This is a stamp set titled ALL Star. I colored the images with my Prism colored pencils, used some floss, buttons, Spellbinders dies, pop dots and a Martha Stewart loopy punch (still one of my favorites!).

Have a wonderful day!

Be Blessed, Jenny

December Daily

I have decided to participate in the December Daily challenge on the Cricut Circle messageboard. This is really something that intrigued me as a nice memento that will be handed down through the years to my kids. I am sharing my cover, my first page and Day 1. This is an 8x8 album that I already had on hand and all supplies used are from items I already had.


Front Page

I will be actually be making a new page for day 1 today. I had planned to document my husbands and my fun at a Candlelight Bowl last night but forgot my camera (oh boy)! I did take some pictures yesterday though if my son up in the attic getting out some Christmas decorations.

Have a great day all!

My Favorite Things Stamp - Birthday Card

I just love the stamps from My Favorite Things and buy them (like so much else I NEED to have) and never use them. Well, I have a birthday party to attend this evening for a sweet little girl and I had just gotten this stamp in the mail so thought - USE IT -- LOL!!

This is the first time I have used paper piecing on (for the dress) and I think I will definitely be doing it again.

Main Image is from My Favorite Things colored with copics, seam binding colored with Memento ink, spellbinders dies. glitter pop dots and Imaginesce paper. I hope you like this little cutie as much as I do.

Happy Friday All!

From Cindy I received some new Tweezers (I love these things!!!), ATG tape, ribbon, a stamp, some bling, bottle caps (cannot wait to try these), October Afternoon paper, a homemade bookmark, her calling card and some other goodies! Her card is just beautiful too. OHHHH and do you see those Reeses (they are in the freezer - YUMMO!!!!)

Good Old Days - Imagine Card

Hello Again,
It seems that I need to make a few birthday cards this month. When I saw the Good Old Days cartridge I knew it was a MUST HAVE for me. I <3 Cosmo Cricket and this cartridge was no exception. I used it to make a Birthday card for my fathers wife:

I used the layer feature so that the I could add dimension to this image from The Good Old days cartridge. The background paper is from a DCWV stack and was in my scrap pile. I used lots of crystal stickles (sorry for the smudging), memento ink in black, corner rounder, white jelly roll for some dots in the corners, the mustard ribbon is from stampin up and the sentiment is from MPS Sweetest Cupcake set and of course pop dots for the birthday cake.

Greeting Farm Digi Birthday Card

Hi Friends,
I hope you all know I do consider you friends! I so appreciate you checking out my Blog and when you comment it just makes my day -- you know what I mean!!

My daughter turns 25 today - seriously where did that come from. I am SO not old enough to have a 25 yr. old. Believe me when I say we have had our good times and our bad but I have to say I do love the woman she is becoming. She has a full time job and is going back to school so I am sure she has a great future ahead of her. I sure do love her!!

She requested an orange cake and I am taking her to see Mama Mia on Broadway in Chicago. The last few years we have done this as her gift and just time together a great show (we have seen Jersey Boys and Wicked) and delicious dinner, usually Cheesecake Factory -- YUM!!!!!

I put together this card for her using a digi from The Greeting Farm called Chibi Cupcakes:

I colored this cutie with Prisma pencils and Sakura Jelly rolls to give it some sparkle, and I pop dotted her up. The background paper is from a DCWV stack, I used an EK success punch and some brown ribbon from my stash. The 25 is from a thickers pack.

The inside:
The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper Sweetest Cupcake set stamped with Rich Cocoa memento ink.

Here is my beautiful daughter Amanda:
Blessings Friends and enjoy your day,

Classroom Valentines for 2012

Hello Beautiful Friends,

I was not planning to make my sons classroom Valentines this year but when I asked him if we could buy them he was not with the program. Well, I was looking through a scrapbooking magazine and I got an idea for something that was not too hard - I showed him the picture and he liked them so off to work I went.

I used my Imagine and the new cartridge Notebook Doodles and printed out some paper. Well, this is the first time I have used my Imagine for this and it was EASY. Why do I get so scared to try these new things? I have to have all the 'NEW' cartridges, machines and such and then they just sit there like a prized collection when they should be used. Well, that is a goal for this year -- USE MORE -- BUY LESS!!

I also used the Lacy Labels cartridge for the shape of the Valentine and the Bump In the Night cartridge for my little creature. I used a 5x7 cuttlebug folder to add dimension to the creature, pop dots to adhere him and of course a GIANT google eye. I used 2 different stamps for the back of the Valentine. The Let's Monster Mash saying is from Pink by Design A Haunting We Will go set, the second set I used was from Recollections called Celebrate Spring.

Well, my son loved them so I am glad that I did make them for him.

Blessings All - I am hoping to work on some layouts today,
