Someone So Special....

I'm finally settled into my new house and slowly unpacking and organizing my new craft room. I've had a couple of wedding orders to get done which has slowed down my progress of my craft room, but that's the way it goes.

On to crafty business....

One of my co-worker's brother passed away and I wanted to make her a sympathy card. I hate making them because it is depressing, but I want her to know that I am thinking of her at this time. I cased a card I found on Amy Shaffer's blog and this is what I came up with.

Friday, May 29, 2009


Sorry I have been gone for such a long time. I just gotta say that I "HATE MOVING"!! We are finally close to being done with everything. I get to concentrate on my studio this weekend. YAY!! I will definitely have some before and after photos for you guys!

Talk to you soon!!

CTMH - Flower Girls

Hi Everyone!

I don't know why, but I pulled this set that I got awhile ago and decided to creat with it. I don't know why I don't use it more. It's so pretty. The flower is made of some scrap paper I had that I pulled through my Cuttlebug and stack on each other with a button for the center. Who doesn't have buttons that they don't know what to do with??!! Well here you go!
Hope you enjoy!

Thanks a Bunch! - Cafe Mojo Ribbon/Lace Challenge

Hi Everyone! I made these cards for the Cafe Mojo "Mocho Mojo" Challenge. We had to use our "Stash of Ribbon or Lace"

On my first card I used my Verve Visual stamp set "Grateful Elegance". I love the little flowers in this set!

On this card, I got to use my new Copic Airbrush gun. I fell in love with it!! It's so much fun! I used my Verve Visual stamp set "Thankful Blossoms" and cut out the flowers and used Martha Stewart's Fire opal glitter on them.

Thanks for looking!!
By for now!

Sieze The Cupcake!

Here's a fun project!! I love cupcakes..(who doesn't right??) I found this idea in the magazine Paper Creations. I was standing in line at my local Hobby Lobby store and I saw the magazine. I usually don't buy them because they are so expensive, but this one had cupcakes on it and since the line wasn't going anywhere, I picked it up and started perusing. Well, I ended up using my 40% off coupon on the magazine because it was loaded with awesome ideas. This cupcake being one of them.

I made a tutorial over at the Cafe Mojo blog if you are interested in step-by-step instructions.

Have fun and be creative if you decide to make one. I would love to see what you come up with!
By for now!
