Summer Garden

Here is one of the new stamp sets we received at Journeylicious.  I'm having so much fun with all my new stuff I had to come home and create cards right away.  This is a little Thank You card using Summer Garden, and new beautiful background stamp Lacey Trim. The sentiment is from Many Wishes. I used Oatmeal Cookie and Vanilla Pudding cardstock. I used Oatmeal Cookie ink for a softer background and Coffee Bean for the flower and leaf image.  I colored them in with Blue Lagoon, Pineapple Smoothie and Lemon Grass inks.  Add a little bakers twine, journey glaze with sparkle dust and a few clear mini gum drops and your done.

Spring Garden

It's time for another Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge.  I made this card with 3 stamp sets. Spring Garden for the flower, Birdhouse Lane for the Blue Bird, and Many Wishes for the Thanks.  I am really looking forward to Monday's now.  These sketch challenges really get my creative juices flowing. So many ideas start coming to mind.  It's just a nice way to relax after a day at work.  Enjoy.

Just Dance

This weekend was Journeylicious.  This is the tag I made for my bag to make sure I didn't lose it among the crowds.  It was so much fun and I loved the projects.  All the new stamp sets we got and that are now on my wish list are all great.  Tomorrow I will share a card I made with one of the stamp sets we got. We danced and stamped and just had a great time meeting new people and making lots of new friends.  I can't wait for the next event. For the tag I used Strawberry Cream and Tangerine Fusion cardstock and the pattern paper is from Sweet Summers.  I love the Just Dance Stamp.  you really get the feeling of letting loose and rockin out. A little journey glaze, sparkle dust, twine and sparkle drops as final touches and I was ready to go.

Cricut Classes

I will be having my first Cricut classes at This N That Scrapbooking in Chino Hills.  The first class will go over the use of the Cricut Expression and using the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.  Hopefully you will feel a lot more comfortable using your machine and learn to love it as much as I do.  Here are the projects we will make.  The class will be May 18th at 11 am.

My goal is to have you leave feeling completely comfortable and ready to start making wonderful projects with you machine. Hope to see you there.

I made this card as a Thank You to everyone who donated to my webpage for the Autism walk I will be doing on Saturday.

Thanks again to everyone who made a donation and I will be sending you a card with a picture of Brooklyn and I at the walk.

Fabulous You

When I received this set I couldn't wait to color this pretty lady.  She is from the ATS stamp set Fabulous You. I used A spellbinders die to made the frame and a touch of Stickles for her jewelry. I think she came out pretty cute.

Class is in Session

Here is an adorable card I made with the Teacher Ready ATS stamp.  I love this little Professor, she is so cute.  I used the Spectrum Noir markers to color her in and added a little Journey Glaze with some Journey Sparkle Dust to her glasses and the little sign.  The sentiment comes from the stamp set Little BIG Greetings.

Light It Up Blue!!!

Here is a card I made in honor of my niece Brooklyn.  April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day and to help bring awareness to Autism we are requesting everyone to wear BLUE.  It's been a learning experience that is challenging at times but very rewarding as we have seen Brooklyn become more social.  Its just amazing to see her overcome every hurdle.  Thanks in advance to everyone who can participate and wear BLUE.

I used a Saturated Canary digi stamp called Angels Among Us

Spring Time Layout

Our Bliss Roadies Coaches meeting on Friday was so much fun. It’s going to be great learning and sharing all our unique ideas with each other. I of course took lots of pictures so I could scrapbook it.  I made this layout using the April Showers stamp set from Fun Stampers Journey stamped in Whip Cream Ink. I added a little color to the flowers with Blue Lagoon reinker and a paintbrush.  A few embelishments finish it off and I think it came out great.
