YNS Challenge #6: Sketch Challenge

Here's my YNS Challenge #6: Sketch Challenge card. It's a little more vintage-looking versus cutsie. I love the teal color (SU! Baja Breeze is the best description of the color)...hehe. I used an old Whipper Snapper stamp. Hope you like it :)!

Ornament Contest

Hi Everyone!
Here's another ornament! It just so happens that we have an ornament contest at our Holiday Party tomorrow and here is my entry. The front has one of the cute stamps I won from Two Scoops Rice Designs (Thanks Renae!). He's the Juggling Bunny. I used a lot of Stickles on this baby, hehe, and Glossy Accents too. On the back, I have more Stickles and some really pretty Foil Thickers. I also used some Sizzix Texture Plates to make the red and white cardstock embossed. Hope you like it. Wish me luck :)!
Have a great nite!
Much aloha~!

Happy Holidays!

My "Sultry" Top Note Mini Album

Here's a mini album I just completed. It's a top note shaped mini made from the Basic Grey 6x6 Sultry Paper Pad. Love the pinks, browns, and greens. Lots of paper flowers as always.

I'm not sure if it was clear what I was saying...I don't have a lot of large brads or rhinestones or I had to find something to put in the center of my larger paper flowers. I could have used buttons, but wanted something a little different. So, I used the centers of naked chipboard flowers. I inked them up, added glossy accents and glitter...and voila! A flower center! Thanks again Friday (Tfriday77), for the idea of scrunching the ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by! Please leave a comment. Much Aloha~!

In this day and age, it's important for us to think about Mother Earth and her future. Currently, I am into re-purposing's a good thing...think of all the products (packaging, etc.) that you can use for something crafty! One way is making a mini from toilet paper rolls (Bona had a cute mini)...or using the backboards of your old notepads as chipboard...or using some old cardboard boxes...just some ideas :).

Happy Friday, Happy Crafting, and Much Aloha!
