A New Addition to the Scraproom



Here is Beatrice....she is my new goofy bird I have in my scraproom to go along with my crazy pink flamingo if you remember it! I love pink and flamingos go along with it. Now this bird is not a flamingo but equally cute! My hubby bought it for me on a day trip to John's Pass in St. Petersburg florida last week. I love it...it makes me smile!


Bugaboo





I made these two little things today. Not sure if I will add a little picture area on the one or not. I just thought these digital stamps were cute! The paper on the pink one is a card stock sheet from Loralie designs. I love the pattern on it! I don't have any markers I just used cheap colored pencils on the pink one. The other I colored in Adobe Elements. Copic marker set is on my wish list but I'm not going to go crazy with them just a nice small set.

The First layout here I didn't use any carts. I just used BoBunny papers and cut out the little tickets. I used SCAL2 of course to do my lettering on my tags with my glitter pens from
 "CRI-KITS"


You can see I used my "CRI-KITS" Glitter pens on this. Click picture and see close up! The glitter looks great from these pens!! I love photostrips and there is a great site that you can make your own as well as puzzles, mosaic's etc. Big Huge Labs its pretty fun and I love the way they look on your layouts. I did one on an album and it turned out so cute. 


The second item I am posting is a repost but since it is the "SWEET" theme I wanted to post it again. My hubby loves sweets and so I made this cute little recipe book to keep all his favorite things he likes me to bake for him!! I love doing word books, shape books so this was a great project! I did it all myself in SCAL2!!

This layout I used the cricut cart "sweethearts" for the saying, monkey and leaf. The banana's I did in SCAL2. I just inked everything up and added alittle glitter to a few of the letters!

I absolutely love I love Lucy so this one I made in SCAL2. I found the heart with I love lucy in it on the internet and took it into SCAL. The TV I made myself using shapes in SCAL. I took the picture off the internet and printed and just scaled it down.

Treasure Box Designs Blog Hop!!!

Thank you for joining us in the "Treasureboxdesigns blog Hop of Love"
Feb. 7 10am- Feb. 11 10 am
Please leave a comment on each blog to win some blog candy!

You arrived at my blog from Rhonda's blog created scraps of love by rhonda
Here is my projects for the hop....

I LOVED DOING THESE PROJECTS!! I am a big fan of Treasureboxdesigns 
I purchased these files below:
Pretty as a Peacock
Ostrich
Love Bug
The peacock was a file I immediately wanted once I saw it. My daughter loves Peacocks (as well as owls) so I wanted to get this file to make a cute layout for her. I like to do somewhat humorous layouts because I have a good sense of humor. I hope they do!! I popped everything I could because if you know me you know I love dimension. i glittered the ends of the round area of the feathers just to give it a little glimmer and of course I inked up everything!! I just printed a quote I thought was sweet for the sentiment. The "I love him" was just cut using SCAL2. I can't believe how many pieces I did here! 

The Love bug was for me and my hubby. I love vw bugs and this made me think of a volkswagen. I don't have many pictures of us together....seems I either get one of him alone or he gets one of me. So this was just a old pic I found. Please visit Treasurebox designs and also "like" them on facebook!!

Be sure to leave me a comment as My blog candy is sponsored by "Log Your Memory"
It will be a downloadable 2011 Memory Log Book and a Memory Minder subscription!!! Thank you Kristin for that!! Check out their website www.logyourmemory.com

Here is the blog lineup!!

My frig shelf or yours?

 This is for Abby's Scrappy Mom's Challenge!

Just felt like doing something funny
Sentiments are from Scrappy Mom, its 2:40am and I shouldn't be up stamping as evidenced when you look at the ketchup sentiment! Go to bed....quit messing up...thinking you just got to finish it now! 
Did I tell you I am inpatient and fight sleep!

I'm published in Gingerscrapstreet Magazine!!!

Wow I am really thrilled that I was published in Gingerscrapstreet Magazine!!! Here is a link to the post
Gingerscrapstreet Magazine. I did a project "Sweets Recipe book" which I am posting my pics below. Now as usual I don't have the best camera in the world and I really had a hard time capturing good photos of this. In person it looks so much better but hey gotta share anywhooo! Let me know what you think! HERE IS JUST A FEW PICS.

I used stickles and pop dotted everything so even the letters have dimension which is hard to see. I did the design in SCAL2 and cut out of cereal boxes and covered with DCWV Glitter Sweet Collection. Used some border stickers in between different colored papers. I will try to capture the dimension better and take more pics of the inside when I get time! Just got home from CHA and I'm POOPED!!! :)

CRI-KITS Pens & Embossing tools

People, People, People, where have I been. I was in California helping the company and I'm so very impressed with this product and plan to run home and use these right away! If you own a cricut, pazzle, silhoutte, eclips you must get these. I will demo when i get home to show you how to use them. The family was the nice, sweetest person i have ever met. I really believe in this company. I was a newbie that didn't know much about the pens but I watched and learned what they did with their help and the help of my friend Kristal. SO anywhoooo I will do a video when i got home for my Cooking with cricut blog hop that I need to catch up on. I got new bobunny papers at Piktails for my projects. I got several different things to try, muddy puddy, glimmer mist etc. I can't wait to visit Piktails with some pens to try out with them.
I'm so silly tired right now I have taken a sleeping pill so if my works are mistyped don't make sense then ignore it and I will correct it when I'm alert. Its 11pm california time but my time is florida time and it is 2:30pm. So I still am not used to this time change. I was tired long ago about 9:30 (12:30 my time)

Look for some goodies i brought home from cha!!
