Good morning! Here is my entry for the challenge over @ my favorite, Peachy Keen Stamps! The challenge was to create an ornament, it had to be hanging, have the color gold in it & also have a stamped image! I think I just about covered it all:) I had a great time with this challenge because I LOVE making christmas ornaments!! This project was so quick that I think it took me longer to photograph it!! I tried to make it picture perfect! I hope I did good:) The supplies I used were: the 2 patterned papers are from American Crafts, ribbon from Michael's, Gold cardstock is from Stampin up, I used a white gel pen for faux stitching, Lots of stickles & that beautiful stamp image is from of course, http://www.peachykeenstamps.com/ & the small happy holidays sentiment is from, stampin up! I used the "Joys of Season" cricut cartridge to cut out my ornament out on chipboard! I hope you enjoy my ornament, please feel free to leave me a comment & let me know what you think!!! Thank you & have a great Wednesday!!:)

Good morning everyone, This is my card I designed for Peachy Keen Stamps challenge for the Blog Hog starting today!! I was over the moon when Kathy (owner of Peachy Keen Stamps) had asked me to be a guest designer for her blog hop today! Kathy provided the sketch for this challenge & this is what I came up with. For my card I cut out my mummy w/my cricut & used Peachy Keens adorable little "Monsters & More" ~PK-558 stamp image for his face & I used another face image from them for my little pumpkin basket~ "Jack-O-Lantern Faces"~PK-510.

Here is my take on the challenge over @ Two Peas w/Kristina! She designed 3 different cards & wanted us to do our own take on them! I created this ghost shaped card using my Cricut Design Studio software. I used a texture black card stock & cute googly eyes from Michael's, A shimmer white cardstock & sentiment from PTI & pumpkin color cardstock as well as my little library clips are from stampin up. Here is the link to her website to download the PDF file & to watch the video on how to create her version of these adorable cards http://www.kwernerdesign.com/blog/?p=2142 . I hope you like my take on this challenge, feel free to leave a comment & let me know what you think!!!
Kristina had designed this fabulous sketch book for making cards. This is something that is perfect for me because I'm constantly sketching on all sorts of scratch paper & I land up always throwing them away after I'm done! This book is perfect because if I can't think of an idea, I can always refer to my "handy" book! For the cover, I used a patterned paper from American Crafts & the letters are a stamp set from 7 gypsies! I'm still in shock that I actually made something for myself!!! Anyways, here is the link to Kristina's blog so you can download the interior pages & there is also a video explaining how to assemble it! http://www.kwernerdesign.com/blog/?p=2135

Here is my entry for this week's challenge over @ Peachy Keen! I love my pumpkin, I think she came out just adorable:) For this card I used paper from "My Mind's Eye", which btw, I love! Buttons & sentiment are from PTI, I used oval punches to make the pumpkin & "Stretch your Imagination" cricut cartridge for the top of the pumpkin, cardstock is from PTI & local stationery store here in town. I didn't have orange embroidery thread, so I used my copic markers to color my white thread, I thought it was a perfect match! I also used crystal effects & stickles! I hope you enjoy my card, please leave a comment & let me know what you think! Have a great Sunday

I think I'm kinda addicted to my "Hello Kitty Font" cartridge right now! I used her to create these cute personalized notecards for my cousin who lives in Boston! Her birthday was last Friday, I just hope she already checked her mailbox because I held off posting this so she wouldn't see it before she actually received them! All cardstock is from PTI & I used clear embossing powder to emboss the polka dots on these cards! I thought they came out pretty classy! I think I may even make some for myself! What do you think? please leave a comment & let me know!! Scroll down to see my second post for tonight!
I made this cute little journal & bookmark for one of my son's friends for her birthday. I thought this suited her perfect because she is a simple girly girl who loves writing & reading, what a perfect combo gift, ya think!! I covered the journal w/kraft color cardstock & used the same for her bookmark. Also I used a rasberry color & shimmery white cardstock from PTI & the ribbon was also from PTI! I used the "Hello Kitty Font" cricut cartridge to cut out her initial & flower!~ Please feel free to leave a comment & have a great night!!
