Holiday Cards ideas

......I have been crafting up a storm today. These are the 2 final card ideas I have come up with that will be my holiday cards this year! The first one features the Baroque Motifs set from Stampin' Up. I wanted to use some other set from SU other than the typical holiday sets everyone expects you to use for holiday cards. The tree card is done with the Lovely As A Tree set from Stampin' Up. I used the coluzzle to cut out an oval shape, then used the hole I had cut stipple in the background. I love it it! At first the colluzle tools and I did not get along and I was regretting ordering them. Everyone kept telling me it was so easy once you get used to it, and it turns out it is! Now I am addicted to this little cutter set, and want even more designs! Alright....back to crafting for me!

Baroque Motifs

I love this new set from Stampin' Up! It's called Baroque Motifs #109403 $25.95 p.126. I am in love with all kinds of swirls lately. It's hard to see the pretty colors of this card from this scan, but the cameo coral flowers are to die for! I think we will add this card to the list of cards we will be doing for the stamp class in November!

2 New Books

These are my two new favorite books!! Scrap City is just my style of scrapbooking. It shows off the wall type artsy pages about lots of things that you would never even think to scrap about! I enjoy self discovery type pages so I am loving this! The Crazy For Chipboard Book is a small book, but since I have discovered using chipboard more on my cards and scrapbook pages I love it! I'm on the hunt for other books that have lots of chipboard projects in them too, so if anyone knows of any others I'd love to hear about them!

More weekend goodies

I was so happy when I finally found the 12x12 size slab of scrapbook paper called Once Upon A Time!!!!!!!! I had been hearing about it online for a while now, but had not been able to find it. It has some beautiful fairy, mermaid, castles, dragons and more on it. The pages just carry me away to an enchanted land where I used to dream as a little girl! This paper is so pretty I don't know if I can even bring myself to use it, but I'll try! Michael's also had some stickers and 2 different types of chipboard letters to go with this awesome paper which I decided to treat myself to as well. I stocked up on some stickers since they were on sale. I have a love of all trees so I ended up with a couple of different tree stickers again this time. My favorite little purchase was a title made of twisted wire that spells out SPRING! Fitting to use on the first day of spring like today! Another unexpected treasure was some little clear acrylic stamp sets by Hampton Arts that were in bin for only $1.00 each....had to get a few of those. Now I just have to find the time to actually use all of this stuff!

Weekend goodies

J.R. and I had quite a weekend in Huntington for St. Patrick's Day. First of all we came across a friend of ours who works for the ROCK 105 radio station doing a live remote. They were celebrating St. PANTIES Day. If you came by and gave them a pair of underwear you got a free t-shirt! It was interesting! Later we wnt to dinner and then hit all my favorite craft stores. Here are som of the goodies I bought. I found some great glitter, chip board clocks and letters, bags of buttons, giant flowers, cute little flower shaped sanding blocks and more. Blogger owuld not take all the pics on one post so stay tuned for more goodies!
