DAM!....we will miss You

Hey Everyone,
I hate airport Goodbyes :(  Right now my son is on a 14 hour flight to Canada for a working Holiday in the ski fields. Not sure how long he will be gone for? I think, the thought of this is a little easier to cope with knowing we have relatives in Canada. ( Thats what I'm telling myself anyway) A cousin is only 3 hours drive away and his grandparents , Auntie and Uncles are a 5 hour flight.....a lot closer than us!! I now how my parents felt when I did the same thing!               Anyway.....
I made him a fun "Bonvoyage" card.

To start....... I ripped a page of America and Canada from an Atlas for the background, then I decorated it with images from " Go Canada" cricut cartridge. The plane is from 'Paper pups', a little stamping and stitching to finish it off!
Enjoy your week
Happy Creating

Purple & Pretty :)

Hey nice of you to visit!
I have two cards to share with you today........Its my week to post a project at Auzz Trinklets N Kraft. The theme for October is Halloween colours, so I've decided to go with Purple.

 I've used WOW Melt-it Powder mixed with embossing powder, and silicon moulds to create the black oval frame and purple butterfly below.

The next  card is for Becca Cruger's 
"Hop to STOP 2016"
Thanks Becca for bringing awarness to this issue :)

 The card must feature Purple.........I've had some Martha Stewart fringe scissors for a while now......I thought it was about time I put them to use!

My son is leaving on a working Holiday to Canada next week.....the next few days are really busy with friends and family, I'm off to make him a Bonvoyage card, Happy travels etc.

Look at this Cool inspiration photo for the October challenge at Scrapping Outback . So Happy I made time to play along.......WHITEBlack, Grey, and Silver are the colours to use.
This was a fun page to create!

I dug deep into my supplies to find this Cool Bat Button...the Perfect embellishment I think! Some black sequins, Bat sequins too :) The drippy ink is a stamp from Kaiser. The chip board is  a flourish  from Scrapping Outback, I cut it in half to frame the photo.

Thank you for visiting me

A few cards

Hello.........I have really enjoyed having some time today to create a few Christmas cards. The plan is to be more organised this year.......hmmm , who knows how that will go, but at least I've made a start :)
I liked the simplicity of this sketch from "Atlantic Hearts" challenge.

Each card has a pretty Polaroid image and a Rub on sentiment. Love the extra sparkle the snow flake sequins add....they are from Paper Sweeties.
I tried to keep the cards simple you can see, I just kept adding bits and pieces :)

I followed this sketch from last weeks  Atlantic Hearts, make a Birthday card for my mother.....I got busy and forgot to link up!

Hope she likes it! 

Now its time to see what you have been creating 
Happy Weekend to You

Live what You Love

Happy Weekend Everyone!
Today I'm sharing a layout that I created for "Auzz Trinklets N Kraft". The Theme for October is Halloween Colours. 
I have used "Altenew Spring Daisy" stamp collection
I used the outline daisy stamp with Versamark to stamp all over white card stock, then I heat embossed it in Black.
The flowers were coloured with water colour paints.  I cut a strip for the background then fussy cut the remainder of the flowers.
Lastly  a few of my favorite things to embellish......Shaker sequin mix, buttons, crochet doilies and some cute 'Flairs'
Oh and one last thing......ha ha 'my hair'....adds to the Halloween theme :)  LOL

Live Your Dreams...Life is Beautiful...SMILE

Carmel by the Sea

Spring is in the Air.......and I'm outside in the garden  enjoying the warmer temperatures !So there is not a lot of craft happening here except for a little DT work for "Sketchy Boards"
Its a fun Sketch for October and I love the colour inspiration.

A close up First
 To start......I painted  the background, then added an overlay which I  cut using my cricut and Artistry cartridge, papers and embellishments all have a touch of all the sparkle!

"Carmel by the Sea....such a pretty town and beautiful beach. Lots of  people lined the beach hoping for the perfect sunset but, the clouds rolled in. 
Be sure to check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the DT!

I Love Donuts!

Hello Crafty Friends, 

Today I have a few cards to share, that I created using products from "Auzz Trinklets N Kraft"
 I have used the fun stamp set
"I love Donuts" by Simon Says stamp, Nuvo Crystal Drops and MFT stitched rectangle die.
A Donut shape card just for Fun.......Sprinkled with lots of Crystal drops. 
Crystal drops come in a huge variety of colours and four different finishes - Matt, Pearl, Glitter and Clear. I have use the matt on my chocolate icing.....when dry they have a high gloss finish just like enamel dots.....but a lot cheaper. I created the Donut shape using my cricut and Slumber Party cartridge.

I started thinking about my favorite Donut.......Plain with a sprinkle of sugar and cinnamon on top. So, here is my plain card !
 I used my cricut to die cut 'Donut'.....the sentiment is from the stamp set 'I love donuts'. Love the fun play on words!

I'm still busy was fun taking some time out to make a few cards.
Hope you have had a great week...Happy weekend!

Time to play catch up

Hey Everyone,
I've been so busy painting walls in my house , I totally forgot to share a few layouts for September challenges.

The first page is for "Auzz Trinklets N Kraft" The theme for September is 'Boys will be Boys'.........not a flower in sight!
My son....looking very Handsome for his Grade 12 Formal.

Products from Auzz Trinklets n Kraft - MFT stitched frame, 49 Market Gabi's stitched line set.
'Handsome' is die cut with my cricut and cricut basics cartridge.

My second page is for "Sketchy Boards"

I have combined both the sketch and colour inspiration on my layout.
Love the pretty paper from Pion Designs

I have used 'Cricut Flower Shoppe' to create the Flowers, Cherish - I think is from 'Art Philosophy'. ( I really should write the name of cartridges down when I've used them)\

A few friends of mine asked me if I would do a class for them on this layout I created a few weeks back....where I used a napkin and sheet music to create the background.

I was unable to find the same flower embellishments ........but I think these colours are pretty too :)

For more info on this layout go HERE to the original post

Hope you are having a Fabulous week.....Thank you for stopping by,

Happy Creating

Cyber Challenge....

Hey There,
Last weekend I had lots of fun playing along with a "Cybercrop" at 
D-Lish Scraps.
The first challenge was a "Blind Scrap". We were given instructions to follow at intervals.....I really enjoyed not having think about what I was doing , except for choosing papers. I sure wish every page would come together this quick!
My page.....

The next challenge was a "Mystery box"

I have used a Doily, Flair button, Resin Flower and Bow, and a Veneer crown.
Thats Four.......I can't remember the fifth?
This page had to be completed by 5 pm the same was a time challenge too.
My page....

I've started painting my Kitchen and some furniture.....I love painting, I find it so relaxing. Its probaby one of the cheapest things to do as far as decorating goes........but it has major impact.
Any way
 Happy Tuesday to you all.........Have a fabulous week, I'll be visiting you soon! In between coats of paint :)

Auzz Trinklets N Kraft

Hi Crafty Friends,

My layout today is created using products from Auzz Trinklets N Craft.
Our Theme for the month of August is "Circles".

I have used stamps from the  Fabulous 'Altenew Vintage Flowers Stamp collection'. I absolutely love how with layering three contrasting colours , I have created these gorgeous flowers and leaves.

The title " Love' was die cut about fours times for added dimension....I wanted it to look like chip board. I used Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.
I stamped flourishes, a little machine stitching, some tiny papers flowers and a sprinkle of " Nuvo Crystal Drops" .  Be sure to check out the fabulous range of colours from the STORE. My favorite would have to be the 'Matt finish' .......they look exactly like enamel dots and a lot cheaper!

Happy Creating :)

Creating.....No Time to Blog

Hey Everyone,
I thought I'd show you a few projects that I have created recently but have had no time to add them here.

Two weeks ago my husband and I Celebrated our Wedding Anniversary....30 Years! 
Here is the Super Simple card I made for him. I was browsing Pinterest looking for ideas that were quick and easy....I came across this idea HERE, all you had to do was print it out...PERFECT! I searched Google for a Time and Date calculator, punched the numbers in...Ta Da........We have been married for 10'958 days  - 1'565 weeks - 262,992 hours - 15,779,520 minutes - 946,771,200 seconds. How cool its that!
I used my cricut to cut  four of each number, I stuck them together for extra dimension. Washi tape, a little stitching and a Heart shape paper clip..........done!

Next........You might remember this card from a few weeks ago?
I gave it to a close friend  for her Birthday.......I decorated a match box in the same papers.

I filled the draw with quotes that I found HERE. Just Print, Cut, Stick....they are the perfect size. 

I decorated the box so you could display a quote.
The tags were cut using my Cricut and Art Philosophy cartridge.

On Saturday morning I did a Scrapbook class with 'Cathy Cafun'
This is the gorgeous page we made. The colours were perfect to use a photo from my daughters wedding.

I have a few more things to share but I'll save them for another post!
Hope you are having a fabulous week!
