You're My Heart Warmer

Good morning all my crafty friends.

I cannot believe how utterly cold it has been here in Jersey - especially before Thanksgiving.  It's kinda been a huge help in the Mojo department!!  I've been feeling so chilly enough to stay indoors and get a head start on those Christmas cards.  Yippee!

This week over at The Greeting Farm the challenge is Make It Sparkle.  Great excuse to break out those Stickles ;)

So I did just that!!  This adorable cutie is colored up in Copics and I added some Xmas Red Stickles to her little earmuffs!  I heated up some white Liquid Applique around and underneath her for some "snow".  The papers are from My Mind's Eye Winter Wonderland collection and the sentiment is from My Favorite Things.  I added some green crinkle ribbon from my stash.  To finish it all off, I cut out a heart with my Cricut Expression and then added some of the same Stickles to that as well.  You can never have enough sparkle, in my humble opinion ;)

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.  Stay warm!!

Just Poppin' By!

Good morning all my crafty friends and Happy Monday.  I hope that your week is starting off on the right foot.

I decided to whip up a cute and quick little card for a friend of mine that I haven't seen in awhile.  With kids and jobs, its so hard sometimes to get together, or talk, as often as we'd like or used to.  I just wanted to send her a little note to let her know I was thinking of her.

I had just gotten this stamp set from Some Odd Girl called Breakfast Friends that I've had on my wishlist forever.  A recent win over at Simon Says Stamp allowed me to finally get it!  Woot, woot!  I absolutely adore this little duo and think it works perfectly to give out a shout out *and a smile, of course* to my friend!

Totally precious, right??  This little toaster and his friend are colored in Copics.  The paper is a mix of Recollections craft cardstock, DCWV blue cardstock and Paper Studio DP.  The sentiment is from the Breakfast Friends stamp set as well, and is inked in Momento's Rich Cocoa ink.  These buttons have been laying around in my stash for quite some time and were threaded with some twine before adhering to the card.  I used a Fiskars punch to give the corner treatment a little something extra.

Well I hope you all have a wonderful day!  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Happy Thoughts!

Good morning my crafty peeps!

It is rainy and dreary here in Jersey today so I had to make something bright and cheery to chase away the clouds.  This creation definitely did just that, and I'm super excited that I was able to get it done right under the wire for The Greeting Farm's FFF Anything Goes challenge!

A friend of mine was kind enough to get me one of my favorite TGF stamps, Flirty Anya *thanks girl - you know who you are!!*, so I had to ink her up right away.  She is so adorable and easy to her!

This cutie was brought to life with my Copics and I added some Yellow Stickles to the rose in her hair for some extra yumminess.  The papers are a mix of Recollections kraft cardstock, Bazzill yellow cardstock, and the American Crafts My Girl collection. The sentiment was from the Taylored Expressions Many Minis Occasions stamp collection and was inked in Momenta Rich Cocoa ink.  I used some Queen & Co. self-adhesive pearls and some resin coca roses in my stash.  Underneath the gingham panel, I used a Fiskars punch to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by today and taking a peek.  Hope you have a wonderful day ahead!

Birthday Flowers

Good morning all my crafty friends! 

A dear friend of mine just celebrated her birthday and I thought I would use this precious CC Designs stamp to create her birthday card.   She is from the Swiss Pixies collection and her name is May Day Birgitta, which you can find in the CC Designs store by clicking here.

Swoon!! I love her little haircut and her little shoes!!  They remind of me of ones I had when I was a little girl!  I colored up this sweetie with Copics and added some Yellow Stickles to the flower centers.  On the frill of her dress, I added some Stardust stickles for a little pizazz.  The papers are from the American Crafts Color Crush collection.  I then stamped off one of the sentiments from the Taylored Expressions Many Minis Occasions stamp collection in Momento's Rich Cocoa ink.  The teal flowers are from Recollections and I added some orange seam binding from my stash to finish it off. 

Oh, and did you know that CC Designs is hosting a DT Call until October 20th?!  Woot, woot!!!  Click on the banner below to take you to the post on their site to find out all the details!  What a fabulous opportunity and I'm crossing my fingers, for sure :)  Wish me luck!

Hope you all have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by to take a peek!

Interrupt our normal program

Sometimes I just feel like taking a break from whatever I'm used to doing; change it up if you will.

I've been wanting to do one of these altered printer trays from 7Gypsies for so long I cannot even tell you.  But, its like so many of the projects that I have swirling around in my head, I just never got around to it.  So, I put my Copics down for a little bit, and picked up the tray.

Originally, i was going to put my daughters' pictures in the boxes, but then an epiphany hit me and it changed the course of my tray altogether.  I'm so happy I went with my new idea and how it turned out.

The papers are from the Prima Almanac Collection.  I've used some Momenta corners and metal pieces including the dream square in the top right box and the bird cage in the bottom left one.  I was so happy to use up some of my old stash that has been sitting around in my craft drawers like the cherish and wedding sticker.  The flowers are a mix of Recollections and Petaloo.  I used a Heidi Swapp and Inkadinkadoo stamp for the sentiment and butterfly box.  There are some Wilton doilies and Recollections pearls floating about.  I used a fiskars punch in the top right box and my Cricut to cut out the heart for the top left one.  My cricut also cut out the fancy photo corners. In the bottom right corner, I glued some American Crafts black and white twine to the tiny Maya Roads spools.

This was such a super fun and quick project once the Mojo hit.  I'm over the moon that our grandparents, who meant the world to us, will finally be on our wall in our home.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hoping you have a wonderful day.

Good morning friends and happy Friday!!  What have you got planned for the weekend ahead?  Anything good?  My girls are taking their first ever Girl Scouts camping trip with their troop, so hopefully Mommy will be able to make up for lost time and get crafty!

I started the weekend off right by inking up this Tiddly Inks image.  As you know, I'm a huge lover of all things Wryn.  She definitely jacked up the Mojo factor!

I colored my girl in Copics and added some Liquid Pearls on her corners.  The papers are from the Authentique "Journey" Collection.  I used the leftover scraps from the collection to hand roll the blue roses and centered them with some Queen & Co. pearls.  The metal roses are from Momenta and, sadly, are the last ones I have :(  Guess its time to get to Hobby Lobby and get some more ;)  I also punched the white cardstock with a Fiskars punch for a little girly edging. 

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend and thanks for stopping by to take a peek!!

Thinking of you

Good morning everyone! 

Wanted to share with you a card I made using a Saturated Canary image called Angels Among Us. I decided to do something a bit different for me and stick with Sepia tones.

She was colored in Copics and distressed with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink by Tim Holtz.  The tickets were from Maya Road and then I inked up a Mini Occasion sentiment from Taylored Expressions on the inside.  The beautiful chocolate roses and the gorgeous burlap rose are from Spare Parts.

Hoping you all have a wonderful day.  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
