Valentine Chapstick Tag

I created a unique way to give that favorite tube of Chapstick as a great gift. I took a tag and using stamps, distress inks and a embossing folder created this one of a kind tag. I think it would be a perfect accent to any gift. I cut out 1" hearts on my Cricut to make the flower and attached a pearl for the center. Heart and lip stamps are from Stampabilities, alphabet stamp set is from Close To My Heart. I created the holder from spare ribbon attaching with my Mini Attache stapler from Ranger. I hope you like this idea and thanks again for stopping by!

Valentine's Day Cards

Wow! Well it's been a little busy. I've had more request for cards which is an awesome thing. So been spending lots of time in my craft room. Here are three sample cards I have made. First card uses all products from Maya Road, which happens to be some of my favorite. Second card of course I have is a mixed media card all inspired by tutorials by Christy Tomlinson. I included some burlap on this card from Hobby Lobby and alcohol inked acrylic from Clear Scraps. This is a very unique card for a very special person. The last card is made using a stamp from one of my favorite stamp companies called Bombshell Stamps. The bucket stamp is from Close To My Heart. This card was a special order and is going to really nice guy for Valentine's. I guess I better get back to crafting. Thanks for stopping by! See ya next time around.

Anti-Valentine's Day Card

Wow! Getting quite a few orders for Valentine's cards. This is one of my favorites. A friend asked me to make her a card for a friend who just broke up with her boyfriend. She wanted her to know she could get through this, and she had some great friends to lean on. They agreed to be each others Valentine. Lol! More cards to come! Thanks for stopping by!

It's a New Year

I cannot believe how fast time is flying. Can you believe it's 2013?! The beginning of my year didn't start out so hot. I haven't been feeling so great but I think that's finally coming to an end and I'm feeling human again. This means I haven't been in the craft room but I feel it calling me. I definitely have some ideas rolling around in my head. On a great note, I did receive an email that I have another card getting published by Scrapbooking.com. It's always great when someone else finds your work worth showcasing. I'm hoping for lots of craft time and some great projects to come out of my craft room. I've also decided to get more involved in the craft show circuit. Thanks again for everyone's support, and keep checking back for some exciting projects.
