Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to look at my creations...I love making memories that I can share with my family and friends....and especially my daughters. They are my inspirations for creating a lot of these layouts. I love taking everyday ordinary things and making them into beautiful altered art. My downfall is buying beautiful papers and not wanting to use them because they are too gorgeous. LOL. Please take the time to check out my crafts, follow my blog and maybe even scraplift them and make sure you let others know where you got the idea...Love to have new followers of my blog.

Painting using my cuttlebug / pull up treats!

Hello ladies...well I have been on a roll lately plus I had to get alot done by this weekend so it pushed me to get into my craft room...glad I did though. I have been missing it. I have been trying different techniques or just ways to do something I usually don't do.

For this card / pull up treat I made this for my sister's father in law...we have 3 guy birthdays, my mom, my niece and another young gal that we are celebrating this weekend all in the same day. so This is just one of many.

I used my cb bird folder and painted it with teal and glitter white 3d paint...and some gold (looks a whole lot better in can see the shine) anyway, then I rolled this through my cuttlebug. and this is what came huh? I really love the old feel of it. I then added some raffia and button.

Inside used some stamps ...says"A little bird told me it was your birthday...happy birthday"

Then for the pull up treat I used splitcoast stampers and followed the directions...very very easy. I made 3 more like these, but all different...will be posting more this week about those and some other cards to go with them.

I hope you enjoyed my card and pull up treats...and hope you give these a try. Thanks for stopping by ..don't forget to comment below or even just follow. I love to have new blogger friends.

Stamping on a candle!

Hello ladies...This is a quick post today, I got alot done today but just wanted to show you one of the things I was working on. My mom's birthday is the 11th of March but I needed to get this done by this weekend. I have always wanted to try stamping on a candle...very easy to do and I think I will give some more of these a try. This is my 1st one that I've ever made, but Love it alot.

I did this in about 10 minutes and that is because I had to stamp the images. I got a vanilla candle $3.00 at Target.

Need waxpaper, tissue paper, stamps , candle, and markers...I found this on splitcoast stampers...can't wait to do more.

I really hope my mom loves this. I am sure she will but I always want what I give away to be perfect.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope everyone is having a great night.

Hello ladies! I saw this sketch on STUCK ON YOU SKETCHES.... ....I wanted to try it...I hope I am not late entering this.

I have been pretty busy lately. Today was a day where I could finish it , It has been sitting in my craft room for about 3 days,

This layout is of my daughter Lillian in Daytona Beach back in Oct 2010, she was collecting seashells by the seashore. (I used some of those shells on the layout)

I did not write down sizes, sorry! I used my design studio to lay it out.

I used LAB cart (Lifes a beach) for the seashells (tan), seashore (title), I tore paper, inked everything, added some real seashells with hot glue gun (which I burnt myself on, when using this be CAREFUL!!!!!!) Added a brad.

I also used some burlap which I painted white, added glitter and let dry! some ribbon, and wala a layout....took me a while but I finished it.

Thank you all for stopping by and I hope everyone is having a great day!
