Christmas in July Blog Hop



I am so excited to participate in another wonderful Scrap N Stamp Blog hop. This time we are celebrating Christmas in July and may I say it was a lot of fun to get in to the christmas spirit when you do not have the pressue  of the real christmas season. Lol 

In this blog hop we are showcasing a beautiful funky Stocking which is the free gift with a purchase of  $50 or more. Only open to Canada

Fun with Distress Oxides



This blog post was meant to go up over  a week ago but sadly life with children got in the way. Lol 

I am popping in to share some fun cards and backgrounds I created using the new Distress Oxides that just came out.  The backgrounds were inspired by a recent video that Jennifer McGuire  shared, it was chalked full of fantastic ideas. I felt so inspired I just had to go pull out a few of my stencils and background stampset and started playing.

Not only did I start playing with the orignial 12 distress oxides, I recieved a phone call from my craft store that the new ones had come in and the three I had preordered had been set a side. Can you say happy dance.

 

Fun with the Color Throw Down Challenge



Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I decided to try my hand at another challenge, this time from the Color Throw Down blog,  The color challenge was using red , green and white. This was fun for me as I am Italian and though i would do a little nod to my heritage using the  Lawn Fawn Pizza My Heart stamp set and the My Favorite Things Recipe for happiness stamp set.

Easter Fun



Hello and Happy Easter my wonderful Crafty friends, 

I am sorry for my unexpedent delay in posting on here. I am still learning the new system. 

I have been busy working on custom orders that have been taking up post off my spare time aside from taking care of my beautiful and rambuncioyus twins. 

Happy New Year



I am sorry it took me so long to get on to post here. To be honest I am still learning the whole new website and blogging process. It’s not as simple as weebly was.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and got a lot of crafting done.

I was busy most of December with custom orders which was nice but allowed little time for social media or website and blog stuff.

So since its new year I will start with sharing some of my newest creations and hopefully post some of the cards I created in the later part of last year.

 

Rainbow Cards



Hope you are all doing well. I am finally here with little walk through as to how i created these rainbow cards.To create these cards I started of with some 31/4 x4 white card stock and my distress inks. I used Candied Apple,  Spiced Marmalade Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon and Wilted Violet. 

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge



I am just popping in to share two cards I created for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday card challenge, This week the challenge was to create a scene. I had a lot of fun doing these cards.
