Love Love Love

I love "LOVE" cards. They can be used for anniversaries, just because, or just dropping your hunny a little note. This one uses a hambly transpanency (available at KNK) and the Love Stitches stamps! I added a few little pearls inside the heart. The Love sentiment is a Class a Peel from Stampendous and both the stamps and the Class a peels are available at CreativityBoutique.

well for years I wanted to try those Knifty Knitter knitting looms. I Finally broke down and bought some. This hat is my first attempt. Didin't take too long. A few nights but I only "knitted" for a few a little while every night. Not bad for a first attempt

Love is in the Air

I am Loving these stamps! And LOVE that they can be used for anniversaries too! Especially when family members have anniversaries this time of year *wink* To create this card I covered the front of the card with black card stock. I then cut a same size piece of red Core'dination card stock and then cut a "window' out of the center. I then used a Cuttlebug embossing plate to add the swiss dots . I added some lace and the Love Stitch stamped images By Stampendous and added a bow. Hope you enjoy! :D

New Years Resolutions

Normally I don't make too many. But I have a few this year. 1st is to use my Wii fit and exercise! so far 5-6 days since Christmas. not bad, could be better though.

I made a scrappy resolution too! well two of them.. the 1st is to use my tools that I own. so you will be seeing my Sizzix-the original dies and maybe one of the countless alphabets I have for it, as well as Cuttlebug Embossing folders and the Spell Binders dies :D . Don't you love that they work in the Sizzix as well :D You will also see me using my Cricut and my punches. The 2nd resolution I am not as hopeful for--to get organized. Anyone that knows me knows that I am not a neat person. My Desk is a mess (at work and at home). I need to have things where I can see them. I Hate pulling out a whole drawer just to find the right piece of paper. So things tend to get left out. I have a small area and lots of supplies. SO this is going to be a challenge. So PLEASE if you have organizational tips please post them here! I need all the help I can get.

A "tweet" thank you card

I made this cute card with my latest goodies from Creativity Boutique. I picked the Stampendous Love Stitch Clear Stamps this month. The reminded me of my grandmas. They are Valentine's Day stamps but I just love finding other "non holiday" uses for my stamps. For this one I used an embossing folder with Core'dinations cardstock, then sanded the embossed area to highlight the design. I stamped the little birds from the stamp set and colored them in with Tsukineko Momento Markers ( which are all available at KnK's store). Hope you enjoy!
