New stamp set :)

As some of you may already know, I have recently moved from PA to NC!  I FINALLY got to go to one of the local stamping/scrapbooking stores and fell in love with it! The ladies were very friendly and so helpful and I am really looking forward to taking a Karen Burniston class there this fall! Betty's Creative Studio carried so many NEW products that I always have to go online to order so I was absolutely star struck! LOL
While there, I picked up one of Sherri Baldy's My Besties Stamp sets (which I have only ever seen online as "digistamps") and tried to mimic one of the samples they had already made at the store because I thought it was so cute! It used washi tape, which has become one of my latest obsessions, so their sample caught my eye right away...and to top it off---my favorite---black and white polka dots!

Sherri Baldy My-Besties Stamps MYB-0111
SU! Brights candy dots
SU! Blendabilities
SU! Island Indigo, Whisper White, and Summer Starfruit cardstock
Core'dinations Midnight canvas textured cardstock
K&Co. Primary Designer paper
Wink of Stella Gl. Dark Pink 027
Sakura white Jelly Roll pen
Hero Arts (pink) Gemstones
Ranger Glossy Accents (on eyes and pink clothing patches)
MCT Lost at Sea Coordinating Porthole Die
B&W polka dots washi tape (Brand name unknown-from Michaels)
As you can see, I have a LONG way to go before mastering the blendabilities technique! haha!
I love playing with them so much though that I'm just going to keep watching videos and trying!
Hope you are all having a nice day!
It's kind of gloomy here...saw a few sprinkles of rain, but hoping it doesn't last long!
Have a crafty day!

Another year older...

Hello everyone...hope you are all having a wonderful day! I have decided to make an honest attempt at writing more posts on my blog, so here is what I have to share with you today:


This was one of three attempt at using the *NEW* SU! Blendabilities markers and I will say I REALLY like them!!! There isn't much room for error as long as you make sure you are using a dye ink such as the Memento Ink pad I mentioned in the above recipe so that the markers don't bleed.  There are also ALOT of great You Tube videos out there to show you how to use them!  Three coordinating colors come in each set so it takes the guesswork out of blending the colors! :)

Hope you enjoyed today's project...
 Happy crafting!

Back 2 School

I can hardly believe this is our last Cardz TV DT submission already! I have learned so much from these ladies and I am so thankful to have been a part of Mary's great TEAM! With that said, I felt that the *NEW* "Many Thanks" stamp set would be the most appropriate to use! :) For my final DT submission I created a 3D post it note holder and mini easel card with drawer to serve as teacher gifts!

3D post it note holder:

A few of my favorite things!

Today I made a card using products from three of my FAVORITE companies! I wanted to see if I could come up with a card using them all together and here is what I made:

The flowers are from the stamp set Flower Shop by Stampin' Up!, as well as the Strawberry Slush cardstock; the butterfly die (Pretty Butterflies and Dragonfly Dies) and the butterfly dots stamp (Live, Laugh, Love, and Be Happy) coordinate together and are from My Creative Time, and the sentiment is from Cardz TV's *NEW* Many Thanks stamp set!

I really hope you enjoy today's project! 
HAVE A GREAT DAY everyone!
