Crafting day!

I'm really bad!! I should be studying but I have to get this out of my system! I just got a small order from Whipper Snapper. Love this moose! On the moose cards I used MM rub-ons, SU! ribbon and heart eyelets. The paper used is Bazzill and SU Pretty in Pink and Positively Pink. I also used Joann ribbon, red Stickles, Cuttlebug dies, and LI pearl brads. The moose was colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Odorless thinner. The heart card I put together using scraps from the cards I made a couple of days ago. On this card I used a Bazzill pink and SU cranberry crisp. Also used are LI brads, Michaels $1 stamp, Joann chipboard, and cranberry crisp ribbon. The last card is using Delight in Life SAB set from SU. I used Artichoke, Celery and Saffron paper. Inks used are Apricot, Celery, Artichoke. Also used is the Cuttlebug swirls embossing folder, Apricot ribbon from SU, gingham ribbons from All My Memories and the white gel pen.
I just bought a new scanner so hopefully I will be able to get better quality pics up from now on...

King of Country!

We've waited a long time to go to this concert... And it came and went in a flash! We were fortunate enough to catch a few of those flashes. Here's the man! George Strait. The concert was awesome. Ronnie Milsap and Taylor Swift opened for him. I was a little bummed because we missed Taylor Swift. She must have only sang a few songs.... Anyway, here are the pics! They turned out great!! And they are even better blown up...

Valentine Fun

I had some time to make a few more Valentine cards today. I never make this many V-day cards! Fainting These are library pocket cards. The pattern is from Coluzzle. On the B-mine card, the 'B' chipboard is from Joann's, the tag chipboard from SU! The patterned paper is from Chatterbox, solid papers are from SU! (pretty in pink, cranberry crisp), and Bazzill. This card also uses Cutterbug embossing folder, $1 stamps from Michaels, die cuts from Quickutz, punches from Marvy and SU!, Quickutz rub-ons, Cinnamon buttons from LI, Cranberry & pretty in pink ribbon, Linen thread, and the OLD Burgundy ink pad from SU!.

Heart Glasses Be Mine
The second card uses much of the same. The papers are all the same except the color of Bazill. The chipboard is from SU. The diecuts, rub-ons, and embossing folders are from Quickutz. The alpha is Vixen from Quickutz. Stamps are from Michaels $1 bin, and brads are Cinnamon LI brads.

Valentine Gift Bag

Here is a sweet little gift bag I made today. The bag takes a whole sheet of paper (positively pink), and is a coluzzle pattern. The handles are separate. I used the coluzzle hearts. I cut out 4 of the hearts and used 2 hearts for each handle for more stability. Patterned paper is Loves Me (I'm having so much fun with this paper!). Other diecuts or punches use Cool Caribbean, a turquoise blue paper from Bazzill, and Pretty in Pink. the die cuts are all from Cuttlebug--concentric hearts, typewriter alpha, you're not the boss of me alpha, baby face alpha, 2x2 tag set. Punches are from Marvy (scallop punch) and from SU (tag punch. Embossing by Cuttlebug swirls). I used SU! Loving Hearts set from 2003, valentine phrase from the SU tag kit. The cute little key ring/clasp was a great find from Walmart (of all places!). The striped ribbon on this was a great little find from Michaels--the colors matched almost exactly!!! The ribbon is also tied with pink organza and positively pink grosgrain (can't remember the exact name). Also used on this was the signo white gel pen.

More fun stuff!

I sincerely apologize. My digital is not cooperating! Some of the pictures are way too "pink". The paint can and the notebook have Taken With Teal, Cool Caribbean, Positively Pink, Pretty in Pink and the Loves Me papers. All other accessories are misc., SU or Making Memories. The die cuts are from Cuttlebug, and some punches from McGill.

Ok, this is the last of the fun for a while. Its back to the books tomorrow. My New Year's resolution is to pace myself a bit to work on some crafts while I'm in school... I sooo need this creative outlet!! Enjoy! And tell me what you think!

Here is a project I made for a Christmas gift. If you are a country fan you will love it! And you will also understand the wording. I put this one in an empty CD case. The colors are SU! Cranberry and Buckaroo Blue. All Stamps are from SU. The alpha die cuts are Moxie Quickutz--they are so much fun! And the chipboard notes are unknown.
