Snowman Ornament inspired by Momo

I love how this cute snowman turned out. When I saw Momo make him I knew I wanted to try it. I used the Pledge with Future shine floor wax technique. Check out She has a great tutorial. I also used orange Model Magic clay to make his nose. The glitter I used is a chunkier glitter I got at Michael's and it actually worked. I really like it! Thanks Momo!

Goody Goody Gumdrops!

The sentiment on this card came from Scrappy Mom's Sweet Somethings set. I used K&Co. Halloween paper. The jar is cut at 4" from Doodle Charms and the gum drops are the layer from the domed cake on Winter Frolic. My dear friend Darilyn inspired me to create this card because we were trying to figure out which cart had a shape that looked like a gumdrop for her giant gingerbread house in her classroom. I love this card!

Walk in my Garden card

I'm on a Walk in My Garden roll now. In a few days I'm giving my mom my old baby bug and am going to teach her to make cards. I'm also giving her the Walk in my garden cartridge, so I've been getting inspired. If anyone has any ideas you'd like to share feel free!

Sweet Treats Ice cream cone cards

I borrowed Sweet Treats from my friend Linda. I've been having so much fun creating these yummy cards. It's on my wish list now. I should return her cartridge, I've had it for almost three weeks!

More Grandparents day card!

The great grandmothers got these butterfly cards.

Grand parents day cards

Grandparents day surprised us this year. We whipped these cars up quickly and they received them in the mail today. Better late than never! Lol!

Turtle Card for Robin

My friend Robin And I both want the Peachy Keen Critter stamps. We were playing around on how to make a Critter from Create a Critter with out the face cut. We figured out that all you have to do is not cut the layer with the face. Simple!!! He's so cute!

Happy crafting!

My blinged ATG!!!

Hi everybody!

Look at my ATG! I used some "skittles" that I colored with alcohol inks and some flower bling. I also used some little letter tiles I've had in my stash for a long time. Of course I also painted it with green Krylon Fusion first. I was going for Cricut green but I'm so pleased with the way it turned out! I used a crazy glue pen to adhere the embellishments on the ATG. The huge flowers keep falling off so I'm going to use Gorilla glue next time one of them falls off. Lol!!!

Go ahead try it. There are so many great tutorials on how to paint the atg on Youtube.

My friend Robin and I saw a layout at the scrapbook expo that included the oval in the background. I created it on my Gypsy. I used an oval from the Learning Curve cart. I put a small oval inside of a large one and cut. I like the look! This is a page in progress. Thanks for the challenge Robin! Can't wait to scrap with you soon!

My son and I made this card for my husband for Father's day. His opinion was that it doesn't look like a penguin. LOL! He did like the idea to use the square bling as ice.

Locker Talk cart
George cart
Dollar Stamp from Michael's
Hand made Skittles (Hee Hee!)

Here is another card I used the skittles on. I'm having so much fun with these! I'm also loving my Create a Critter Cartidge that i picked up at the Scrapbook Expo when it was here in Orlando! The Stamp is from a Close to My Heart set called Delight in Everything.

This is the card I created using the tip from Shannon at www.Scrapbooking

Check her out. She has lots of practical tips.

I learned how to dye your own skittles using alcohol inks from Ranger. Now I wan to add skittles to everything.

I found the clear vase filler at Michael's in floral dept.

I made my own video but can't seem to upload it. I'm not giving up though!
