Well I finally broke out this stamp set from CTMH called candlelight I love it I just have not touched it before today! Anywhoo I have no purpose as of yet for this card but it is what I was drawn to make. I used the same line of My Mind's Eye paper that I have used on the last few Easter cards I have made and some black cardstock, the candles were paper pieced as were the flames & then colored with Copics, they were adhered with foam tape so they are raised. I also put liquid glass on the flames. The flowers are from Prima and the button and black hemp are CTMH, the Satin ribbon is from Offray. I actually love how this card turned out.

Beloved and Believe In Me

Another little Easter card, quick and simple using paper from My Mind's Eye. The stamp sets were from CTMH as is the Prisma Glitter and the ribbon is from Making Memories. The card base was cut out using my newly organized scalloped circle Nestabilities. The card is distressed with Vintage Photo ink from Tim Holt's.

Henry card

Here is the card I made for the baby shower I have next weekend, the one I made the diaper cake for. All products are CTMH I used Felicity paper, the stamps sets I used were True Happiness, Baby Steps, The Best Way(retired), and I can't remember the name of the font set I used but it is retired! I put liquid glass on the bottle and the images were colored with Copics. I also used buttons and hemp.

Another card for Easter

For this card I used 3 different size Nestabilities, and the stamp is from CTMH and called Enjoy Every Moment! It was colored with Copics, I also used the Beloved stamp set for the inside! The ribbon was from wal-mart, and the gelly gems were clear but I colored them purple with Copics.

2nd post today

wow, and it's not even 7:00am yet, but in actuality I did have this layout done yesterday I just did not take the time to post it! This layout is my version of the CTMH Spring Idea Book layout that was featured on the cover! I used Veranda paper, just blooms flowers, pewter filagree brads, which I tried to make look more coppery and less pewtery by inking with brown staz-on ink, copper mini medley collection(photo corners), lots of mini sparkles, the One Of A Kind stamp set, and the Plantin Schoolbook and Jasmine Cricut cartridges for the title! Now this is not my husbands or my favorite picture of ourselves but we have so few together I was using it anyways!

Nestabilities storage

Ha, I finally found the perfect storage solution for my Spellbinders Nestabilities. I bought a 1ft x 2ft roll of magnet from Michael's and just covered it with some CTMH Veranda paper and voila, a magnetic spot for my Nesties, so that I can see them and my little ones can't reach them. Now that I have the perfect storage I realized I need more Nesties (lol)

3/14 Rainbow cupcakes

Well today is my baby girl's 2nd b-day, where does the time go? Anyways I decided I wanted to make cupcakes for her instead of a cake and I follow this blog http://www.theidearoom.blogspot.com/ and the other day she had these great cupcakes on which she found at http://www.bestbites.com/. Now I have no fancy baking skills so what you see is what you get but I tried. I had a Funfetti cake mix so that is what I used, and I also added a cup of sour cream to the batter,then divided the batter equally into 5 bowls and added food coloring not the liquid kind but the Wilton gel kind. Then you just drop a spoonful into your cupcake wrapper and just layer the different colors then bake as normal! For the frosting I cheated and used Betty Crocker Whipped cream cheese frosting! Not beautiful but cute and hey my kids will eat anything with sugar no matter what it looks like!

Whiff Of Joy

This is the b-day card I made for my best friends b-day, I am not real impressed with how this card turned out, but hey when you are trapped in the bathroom for hours at a time potty training your almost 2 year old you don't have alot of creative energy left for card making! Anyways I used Fancy Pants paper, flowers from Prima, cordouroy brad from Bazzil, random ribbon, nestabilities and rhinestone circle. The main image is a new Whiff Of Joy stamp I got from a great customer of mine - Amy thank you! I colored her with Copics used stickles on the wings and a Sukura glitter pen on the bottom of the pants.

2nd post today -wowee

I finally remembered to take a picture of the train table my husband built for my kiddos, here it is!

Easy Quick Layout

I had no and I mean no creative energy today, but felt like I had to do something so I decided to use up some more of my old stash of non-CTMH goodies. So I used a printed overlay I bought like three years ago! So today was not my best day of scrapbooking, but hey I got a layout done even if it is'nt the greatest layout in history. It only took me like 10 seconds to make it, some matting, some flowers, brads and sparkles can't beat that!
