GOOD MORNING my creative friends & welcome to another "Inspiration Wednesday!"
For today I have a FUN inspiration! ;) This is a picture of the inside of the GHIRADELLI CHOCOLATE FACTORY! YEP, this is my boys' FAVORITE ice cream in the whole world! I can't even offer them 31 flavors anymore because they say "Ghiradelli has the REAL ice cream!" I have to say, that I NEVER argue w/them about that! lol…… If you look to the left of the clock, there is a beautiful picture of at hot fudge sundae! hehehe!
Well, back to my tag, I was inspired by this brick wall & clock.  I know my tag has nothing to do w/ice cream, but I thought it would be fun to make a window & stamp a clock inside showing it at 5:00! Basically it kinda goes w/the saying "It's 5 o'clock somewhere!" hehehe! 

So I created this tag using my brick stencil along w/my NEW FAVE Texture Paste, then inked it all up w/my TH Aged Mahogony & Vintage Photo inks! Next I cut a window using my Bunch of Fun Circle Dies & stamped the clock using my All Around Birthday Time stamp set onto another tag die! (this is the time I WISH we had a layer for this die) :( 
Any who, next I stamped the sentiment onto some vellum, cut out w/my Scallop die! Next I added the glasses cut out using silver paper & my All Around Holidays set! Last I used my Rolled Flower Die w/the CUTE silver leaves & added sequins, sheer ribbon & black twine! This was REALLY fun to make & I LOVE how well this paste took to the inks!!!

Unfortunately, I think everything caught up to me & I am not feeling too well :(  I went to my craft room last night & my brain was telling me YES….MAKE SOMETHING…. & my body was saying NO, NO, NO! :(  I ended up just listening to my body & went to bed.  It was nice to have a good nights rest for a change! :)

Scrapping The Little Things

Good morning my sweet friends & welcome to another "Scrapping the Little Things!" Today I did a page in my smash book! Of course, when I came out with these new stamps & dies, I just HAD to scrap my boys' first day of school! My little Anthony is now an 8th grader & my Baby Aaron is a 10th grader…WHERE DID THE TIME GO??? :(

My team & I followed this AWESOME sketch created by my TALENTED design team member Miss Liz!  When I first saw this sketch, I KNOW I wanted to make some kind of pencils for my back ground!

In my video below, I EXPLAIN how I created my pencils using a few dies of mine! 
Here is the finished page! I just LOVE how it came out! :)

Good morning my sweet friends & Welcome to another "Thrifty Thursday!"  If you are just joining me for the first time, every other Thursday we use our scraps to create any project of our choice! 
For my tag, I used my scraps of my kraft color card stock, which I ALWAYS have plenty of! :) 
I also did a stamping technique that I learned on day 9 of the "Stretch Your Stamps 2" online card class! You can see in my video below exactly how I made my tag from beginning to end! I ended up using my clear wink of stella pen for all the petals of each flower!
