This is Ella from Digi Stamp Boutique is she not the cutest. I just love Sally Ann's images they are just so me!!! I used some Amy Butler Dp and finally I got My Big Scallop punch to work it was getting jammed every time I went to use it. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. I colored my image with Copics added some gems to Ella's dress and of course it would not be a card without a nice big bow. Tfl!!!!

Sweet Sketch Wednesday

This week over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday we were sponsored my the wonderfully talented Joni at Inktegrity she has some wonderful images so make sure you check it out!!! The DT did a wonderful job with their creations so go get some inspiration!!! I used Happy Mail for my image and you all know how I just love owls so when I saw this digi stamp I had to have it so cute and it would also be very easy to paper piece this image but I chose to color it in with Copics. The DP is We Are Memory Keepers really cute paper and great colors.

Yay it's Friday and another FWF I love this day for this very reason. I enjoy seeing so much Unity inspiration and all the wonderfully talented Unity Customers. Have I told you how much I love owls? As soon as I saw these felt stickers from Sassafras had to have them of course I was scared to put this cutie on the a card but I am proud of myself and I did it!!! The sentiment is from a Untiy KOTM. Tfl!!!

Who knew that Bingo cards would get so popular in the crafting world. Anyways Regina over at The Cutting Cafe has made and awesome Bingo Card Printable stamp set with tons of images and words she has thought of everything!!! I used some great Jenni Bowlin papers for this card. Also don't forget to get your free Christmas Daily set here until midnight the 19th.

So I have a few thing to share today the first is a couple more Projects using the Basic Grey Christmas Card Class Kit.
The first couple picture is a box that I altered and made 4 thank you cards for Christmas I know I never think to send Thank Yous which is sad I know. So now I have them made and will not have an excuse not to send them out. Second project is a pillow box that I made also using the leftovers from this kit. I have had this Coluzzle template forever so I thought it would be nice to break it out and use it super quick and fun project. This kit is on sale this week at Paper Maniac as you can see I have made quit a few projects with this kit and there is still quit a bit of paper left.

Also just another quick note Patti is going to be breaking up some of the Unity Store kits so if you only liked a couple of stamps in each kit this is perfect for you to grab the stamps you liked without having to break the bank buying the whole kit.

The Dp I used is from K and Company I thought it went perfect with the image. The sentiment is from Papertrey ink.

Holiday Planner

When I saw the tutorial that AJ did over at Splitcoast Stampers for this File Folder Book I just had to give it a try. I knew right away that I wanted to make it a Holiday Planner and the wonderfully talented Regina has made this great Printable stamp set called Holiday Planner. In this set you get 3 assorted sheets for planning your gift lists,Christmas Card list, and Misc. Christmas notes. Now I have to say this did take some time to make and the thing that took the most time is decorating the File Folder itself everything else came together quickly.
Regina over at The Cutting Cafe is giving away a 83 image Printabls Stamp Set called Christmas Daily that is perfect for a Countdown Book to Christmas. Seriously 83 images for free you do not want to miss out on this because it is free until the 19th and then after that it will 12.99 so go check it out here. There is also a link at The Cutting Cafe to a awesome Daily countdown to Christmas that Alli Edwards has done it really is amazing!!TFL!!!
Forgot to add that the paper I used for this is October Afternoon
Holiday Cheer.

Basic Grey Christmas Card Class

Have you heard about the Basic Grey Christmas Card Class Contest over at Paper Maniac? You are to make the projects that they give you the directions for which is Four cards and Four Tags and to take it a little further for the contest Patti wants you to make as many other things that you can with the leftover supplies. I have always been a little hesitant to get these kits from Basic Grey only because I didn't think there would ever be enough supplies to make alot. Boy was I wrong there is so much leftover after you make the required cards and tags. So I have given a couple of pictures of what I have Made so far and I still have a couple other projects that I have done with this kit so stay tuned. I just really wanted to give you and idea of how much you can really do with this kit. The clear candy box is from the packaging from the ribbon that you get in this kit this is also the perfect size to hold a gift card and honestly I am pretty proud of myself that I even thought to reuse this. Tfl!!!

Easy Christmas Frame

For the whole month of November Paper Maniac will have a post everyday with a Christmas project so there is going to be tons of inspiration from the Fabulous Dt. I say this is easy because it took me maybe 20 minutes or less. I punched a whole bunch of 1 inch squares with different DP from The Jolly By Golly collection from Cosmo I just love this line super cute. I adhered the squares with Mod Podge and then sanded along the edges then added my second coat of Mod Podge. Then I added my Fan Flower which I'm sure most of you have done these fabby Flowers but this was my first attempt and I love them!!! Be sure to check out Paper Maniac for more great Christmas ideas.
