Today I have a few things to share with you… grab a cup of something refreshing and visit for a bit 😉
First I want to share the mag I won on Kathy Martin’s blog Card-Blanc…..
My very own copy of September 2012’s Scrapbook Trends
Have you ever had one of these mags? It is published by Northridge publishing and is a monthly publication with scrapbook, card, and tag ideas by the millions!!!!! Truly it is 130 pages and maybe 20 are advertising… and blogs are listed so you can find a style you like and try them out as fresh ideas to try! LOVE this mag!!! I have been drooling over the pages of creative goodness for an hour or so before I could stop to write this post! LMBO 😉
Also in the mail… yep, there is more!
Was an order I placed from Pick your Plum. I saw it recently featured on a blog.. now I see it frequently… but I initially saw it here at Craftaholics Anonymous 😉
They sent me my order of WASHI TAPE!!!! and included a Laffy Taffy too! Shipping was only $2.99 and each roll of the tape was only $1.50! I spent less than $10 and got a huge smile! Thanks Pick you Plum and Craftaholics Anonymous for turning me on to it… now I get email updates whenever they have an item at discount… about 3 times a week. Shipping took 9 days and I got emails letting me know they got my payment. Overall an A experience because shipping took a few extra days… but wow what a deal! Have you heard of this company before??? Have you ordered from them ??? What was your experience like???
So I added more of the light paper to try to get the card to jive…
but I really didn’t like it so nothing is glued down… and that is why the K stamp is there… I wasn’t sure the final design so I was unsure the ink I would use.
Finally after a shout out to my bff Joyce I came up with this…
The butterfly is 3D from heavy cardstock and I added wire while the glue was wet from making the butterfly 3D .. for the antenae.
I dry embossed the teal paper and used a Creative Memories fancy corner rounder for the striped paper… the inside is dressed up too!
And while I have been having all this fun Daisy has been begging for treats… every time her Daddy takes a break from fixing the wall in the kitchen!
See how smooth the wall is now… and no wall paper … painting will begin tonite!!! Yay 🙂
Have a blessed day and thanks for taking time for me! I hope I have inspired you.
