A rubber stamping, scrapbooking, motorcycle riding, snowmobile riding, traveling Wife, Mom of two grown men and Grandma to the "Love of My Life". Of course I'd like to spend all my time playing however, I have to make money to buy the toys. In my day job I work in Automotive Engineering. Right now, given the state of things, I'm grateful to have a job. PLEASE BUY AMERICAN!
If you see my Mojo, will you please send it back to me. I really have been bad lately with working on any projects. However, I did take a class at Archiver's last week on making Shabby Chic cards. The class used Hero Arts stamps and Ranger Paint daubers. (Which I give a big Thumbs Up). I really liked using them, the consistency of the paint was wonderful and the colors are scrumtious! We also used the Distress Stickles which I like much better than regular stickles. They seem to be toned down a bit, the colors are not quite so bright. Here are the cards I made. Everyone in the class made the same cards. It was fun using paint with stamps instead of ink and will use this technique again very soon.
Thanks for taking a peek and I'd love to hear what you think.
Ok, I'm way behind in my blogging. Sorry about that, but life/work keeps getting in the way of my fun time. I know this is a bit late for Valentine's Day, but I incorporated it into my project. This time it was Lee's turn to issue the challenge. It was to create a 3D project. All of the products used on this are from Papertrey Ink. Thanks for taking a peek and I'd love to hear what you think.
Today is day 2 of the big Birthday Bash over at the Papertrey Ink website and Nichole's blog. There were several free downloads offered today. The Challenge for today was to use the downloards on a card or several cards. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough time to do more than one card. Here is the card I did using the free cupcake download. I did use Maile Belles http://mailebelles.blogspot.com/ card as inspiration for this layout. The sets I used for this card are Polka Dot Basics, Jounaling Lines and the sentiment is from the Let's Celebrate set.

As many of you know Lauren Meader decided to open her own online shop with her amazing templates http://www.mytimemadeeasy.com/. I love doing the templates. They are fun to put together and they open an whole new area of design and decorating possibilities. This is one I did last month from her first release. It's called Shutt-erfly. The top is designed to look like Butterfly Wings, hence the name of the packaging. I made this one and filled it with a bag of chocolate covered peanuts. I did change this up a bit by cutting out an oval in the middle of the box and covering with clear cardstock so you can see the goodies inside. Lauren has also designed Digital paper. This is something I thought I'd never do and I ended up loving it. There are several other patterns to coordinate with this plaid as well and will be using those on some future projects.
