Cute as Cute can be!!!
So the whole thought process of this card came from the piece of jean material we received in the store recently from Canvas Corps.  I immediately knew which MFT stamp set this would be perfect for....tada!
So, I stamped and colored (with Copic Markers) this sweet girl and she has been sitting on my desk for a good week......
until last night.  I read about the MFT November Guest Designer contest and thought...hey I have to bling my girl out and submit her....cause her jeans ROCK and she now has her B-L-I-N-G on.....

I used Jillibean soup papers Christmas Eve Chowda! (as we would say here in RI) and the crystal embellishment is from Prima.  I used red chalk ink and red and white twine from The Twinery.  

I was able to use a bunch of MFT Die-namics as is a list:

  • Simply Scallops-Medium
  • Four Point Frame
  • Rolled Flower
  • Oval Decorative Doily

We do carry all these products at the store and this card will be on display as well.  Hope you enjoy this cutie-pa-tootie girl and stop by again soon to see more!

When you stop by the store ask about our Awesome MFT FAN CLUB!! It's to "die" for.....tee hee.

hugs, k.

Home Sweet Home
Love this frame!  Sometimes when you see a certain paper line, stamp set, or die cut something instantly comes to your mind. As soon as I saw this new stamp/die set from MFT called Homespun Birdhouse I just imagined this frame.  I love all the little details and the different elements on each house that makes it its own.
I like to try to use the dies as much as I can in ways that aren't necessarily traditional.....for instance, love how the snowflake makes such a good backing for my Winter house flowers.  I also love the Summer house with the waves as its trim and the tiny sun from the tag set.
This is a great gift item for the Holidays too!
Hope you have been creating lots lately also.
Have a great day!

Hi Everyone!
Just a quick post to show you all a quick and easy pin I made with my MFT Die-namics.
 While at CHA I did a make and take in a booth where I dipped something into Diamond Dust and I couldn't figure out why I had never tried that at home...I own the stuff for goodness sakes!  Love how pretty it looks.
Love the colors, how the UTEE makes the Dizzy Doiley looks so shiny.

This is happiness at its best!
Be back soon...promise!

Since I got my new camera I haven't been carrying it around in my pocketbook the way I use to with my old camera.  Luckily yesterday I had it in my car and while driving down the street I noticed these .....what are they even called? Dandelions? I think so.  I pulled over and took a few shots of it.  Our weather has been very rainy and it actually was a great day for photo taking.
Today in the studio I began work on a pretty big project.  It is a journal of sorts and I have to make sure I have the right amount of pages etc.  So I am being very careful in my planning.  More to come about this beauty!
Also in the studio I worked with Copics, dragged out the ole Prismacolor Pencils, and another type of marker that I will be sharing lots more about with you very soon! I'm heading off to bed...hope you have a good nights sleep.

well my life is still going way past the speed limit.
here is a little bit of what has been happening in my world:

  • i have lost any time at all to do things for myself these days, including blogging. this makes me sad. so i have made a conscience decision to do it again for me.
  • my grandmother turned 90 in March.
  • my job is amazing, love what you do and you'll never work another day in your life. thats what they say. i can say i love what i do.
  • teaching is amazing. see above.
  • i like american idol
  • greys anatomy didn't spark my interest so much this season :(
  • my girls are growing up really quickly.
  • my dad turned 68 this month.
  • my nephew who made me an auntie for the first time turned 27 today.
  • my only godson turned 21 yesterday.
  • on june 11th the gaspee day parade will take place here in my hometown, and the float for the elementary school i have spent the last 7 weeks working on with 9-12 year olds will be in the parade.  the children will be dressed in colonial costumes that i also helped make. should be fun.
  • life in general is busy....too busy....but it is life right?
why the new look of the blog? i feel fresh, and renewed in a lot of ways.  and wanted my blog to reflect it. since the new year i have been really been focused, feeling great health wise, and it feels good.

today i want to share the card with you that i made my dad for his birthday. it was a quickie and i thought it was great.  he really liked it too.  i think he got a kick out of seeing my name stamped on the back too :)

this paper is from websters pages yacht club collection.  i used a 3/4" circle punch and popped them up with foam tape and added some letter stickers.  used a spica gold glitter pen to highlight the sentiment that was already on the paper.  used some twill tape, twine, and again the circle punch with coordinating paper and glued them together on a pin.  it was quick and cute. hope you enjoy.
hugs. k.

Hello There Peeps!!

It's been a while but here I am. 
Today I wanted to share a project with you that I made and really love.

This is an adorable note card set I made with My Minds Eye Stella & Rose line of papers.  This line of paper is so beautiful and is by far my favorite new release this year.  If you are local Right at Home Scrapbooking has the full selection of all four lines of it. 
I used a die cut folded in half and sewed it together around the edges to form the jacket for the cards.  Used a Scor-pal to make the pockets.  The cards were so simple because I used the matching stamp set and then the popped up stickers that also coordinated.  Quick stamp....pop on sentiment...done.
My favorite part is the cover with all of the rows of ribbon.  I love the colors and the textures. I used the zipper ribbon from the line and used hot glue to make the flowers.
Hope you enjoy this project!

I hate when I disappear! I took off some time to spend with the kids over the holidays and rested my mind, body, and soul.  My creative juices are rejuvenated and are flowing like crazy.  A lot of times I get over stimulated creatively and my mind can't focus on anything long enough to produce a single thing.  I hate that!!  
We have had lots of snow--which I love...its the most peaceful time of the year for me and I can never get enough of it!

Here is a project I have been working on......Memory Box Stamp, MME papers, Die-Namics Die, and gold Krylon Pen.  Beautiful!!

Created my own background paper with Tattered Angels Glimmer mist and a mask.

Used Ranger Cracked glass Accents on Bird

As always, I hope this finds you well and creating magically!
