A little PEEP...

Hello friends!  It's already Wednesday, and March is about to come to an end.  I am still finding Valentines around the house and now I gotta start thinking Easter.  I participate in my boys classroom parties throughout the  year and am usually on the lookout for a quick and simple idea for cute treat bags.  This year is no exception.  I gotta get started on these treats soon.  Any ideas?

In the meantime I have been creating some cute Spring inspired projects with a paper collection by We R Memory keepers called PEEP!  I just love the name and the colors, everything really!  I recently saw a request by none other than We R Memory Keepers for some spring projects featuring their products and knew I had to send in a few things I had been working on.  I am excited to say that I got an e-mail this morning wanting permission to share my designs on the blog!  Of course I said YES!!  I am not sure when they will share them, but I decided to share them here too.

So, here we go......

Look at those CUTE bunnies and jelly beans.  The stamp is by We R Memory Keepers also and is part of the PEEP line.  The stamp collection is called Easter Candy (so fitting right?!)
This card uses the Easter Candy stamp set too!

These 2 cards and the tag were all created using the PEEP line.  Don't you just love the versatility of it?  And the bright sunshiney colors!!  LOVE!

Well, I gotta go.  But, Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope you can get some PEEP soon too, it really brightens your day!

Happy Craftin'

Friends with Flair......

Hello crafty peeps!  I am so excited to be playing along today in the Friends with Fair blog hop!!!  Fun, FUN!  This is my first time participating in this blog hop, but I am not a newbie to the Unity stamps!  I am SO in love with them all...wish I had a money tree.

 Anyway, I created a card to share today using the June 2010 Kit of the month called Fly...Free.  I just adore all of the Kits each month.  And looky here...I do have a BUTTERFLY TREE!!!

I used this butterfly tree image from the kit.  I decided to stamp and emboss the image with some sparkle embossing powder.  I also cut a few butterflies out to POP up...Love these butterflies!  The sentiment is from this kit also.  So perfect together.

The papers are from We R Memory Keepers be my valentine collection.  I added a few rhinestones colored with Copic marker (sorry I forget the color).  The border punch is EK Success.  White cardstock is Bazzill.
I hope you enjoy my card today, and thanks so much for stopping by.  
Happy Craftin'!

Blast from the past Blog Hop FUN!

Hello friends!  I hope you have been hopping along the Taylored Expressions blog hop to see all the great creations along the way.  The theme for this hop is SPRING!  YES!, I know I am so ready for spring to be here!  The flowers, sunshine...and even the thunderstorms.

There is also a sketch created by Sankari that you can use to get started if you want to use it.

  I decided to use this fun sketch.  Here is what I came up with....

I used the Summer Afternoon stamp set.  I have used this set for so many different occasions.  Love it!
I decided to cut out the center of the stamped image and pop it up with the sentiment stamped in the center.  I also stamped and cut out a butterfly from the set and popped it up as well. I had fun with this sketch and the Spring theme.  Hope you join in too!

Here is a complete list of all the hoppers. 
 Have fun hopping and thanks so much for stopping by today.

Mojo Monday.....on Tuesday!

Hey crafty friends!  Welcome to my Mojo Monday on Tuesday!!  LOL!  I had every intention on getting this done yesterday, but I gotta tell ya.  I could not function yesterday!  My craft space was such a **DISASTER** Even for ME!!  So I had to spend some time getting that crazy mess squared away so that I could actually move and find things again.  

So here I am on Tuesday with my Mojo in full swing.  I used the sketch provided over on Mojo Monday for my card. Love when I get a chance to play along with these talented gals!

Take a PEEK at the sketch....MOJO MONDAY SKETCH BLOG.

I had such a blast playing with these FUN roller skates by UNITY!!  Aren't they the CUTEST?!!

So how do you like it?  I am LOVIN it!  My inspiration was the sketch and that fun funky paper I used a strip of.  Anyone know who manufactured it??  I haven't got a clue, but it had that super cool birdie scalloped border along the bottom too...YUM!

Wanted ya to see the little shimmer on the hearts...Isn't that just so much FUN?!  I colored them in with Copics and then painted some Creative Inspirations paint on them.  

Well, I am off now to finish up some chores...Blech!  But, I will be back with more FUN soon.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I have been feeling so very springy the last few days!  I think mostly because of the beautiful days we have been having.  Oh, I look forward to getting outside in the dirt and planting some flowers and enjoying the light breeze and sunshine.  Todays card is all about jellybeans and bunnies...very Spring, right?

 I used the Creative Inspiration paint colors Tutu Pink, Mint and Mellow Yellow and painted them right onto my stamp.  Then I stamped my Jelly beans and bunnies all over my card.  After the paint dried I layered some paper and embellishments on top.
I hope you can see the shimmer here.  These bunnies and Jelly beans turned out really sweet!  And don't be afraid to really paint up your stamps, I usually just wash them off in the sink when I am done.

Hello, It's March already?!

So today I got bit by the creative BUG!  YAY!  Love it when that happens.  I have been using so many different things lately that my desk is can I put this...Completely drowning in everything but the kitchen sink!  Yikes!  I say it shows I have been busy...but my hubby says it is just a chaotic mess!  **Insert evil laugh**

Anyway, I thought I should give a peek at what I have been up to today.

So how did I do????
Funny thing...I wanted to paint my Orange on..but I had no orange paint.....UGH, What's a girl to do?!!  


Go and see what is in the kids crafty stash!!!
