Lots of updates to come but a little toot for now

Cards magazine requested one of my "Wild Things" cards for their Feb. 2007 issue. I'm totally stoked about that.

AND oh yeah, I'm also the Guest Designer for Scraptivity for the month of October. I can't wait to see the kit and stamps. Based on the add ons for the month, it's going to be an amazing kit!!

I'm going to be super busy next week!!

Wild Things.....you make my heart sing.



One of my recent purchases was a set of the Gel-a-Tins Wild Things stamps. I created this set of three cards using some papers from Pebbles Inc and some DCWV cardstock. I love the way the colours turned out and these stamps are just wonderful to work with.

Playing with my 'bug


I heard a rumour that you could emboss transparencies and decided to give it a try with my Cuttlebug embossing folders.

I ended up creating these two cards, which are definitely two of my masterpieces so far (if I do say so myself). These came together better than I ever imagined.

The first card was made using a regular office transparency run through the Cuttlebug with my winter folder. After embossing I took some white Staz On Ink and inked the edges and the top of the embossed surface to give that snow like effect. I added the Creative Imaginations paper and a felt snowflake that I cut in the Cuttlebug using a sizzlet die.

The second card was a bit of an experiment that I would not try again. I took an acrylic cutting mat from the dollar store and made a card out of it and embossed it also using the winter folder. The embossing turned out really well BUT I do NOT recommend trying this if you want your Cuttlebug to remain intact. The roller was extremely tight due to the thickness of the mat and I thought I was going to break the handle off. Anyways, all is well with my beloved bug.

I added Stickles and Staz on to this card and went with a more non traditional colour for the winter card. I used white rubons on the snowflake that read "Believe the Magic".

I *heart* my bug.

This is Me journal challenge


On 2 Peas I found out about a challenge blog called This Is Me. I decided to give it a whirl as I never really scrap about myself and I'm also going to try to play around with my style a bit.
This is my album cover and the first topic IMHO (In my honest opinion).
