The Sweet Stop Challenge #40

Oh my Goodness, Another challenge which means another week has gone by. Where did January go? We figured today that Wednesday is exactly half way thru the school year. (here in Northern California)which means, 90 more days of school. That is too weird. It seems like just yesterday was the first day of school. Time flies as we get older! Anyways, Onto another challenge. This one I did is from The Sweet Stop challenge Blog. They have totally fun challenges every week and I just love when I can finish one in a night.
On this one, the only stamping I did was the sentiment "Happy Valentines day" The rest, like the hearts were from a sizzix die and the pink bottom panel is embossed with the "Swiss dots" embossing folder. The DP is from the $ spot at Target. They have some of the cutest Holiday papers in like a pack of 8 for $1.00. For the scalloped circles I used my Nesties and my Modern Label punch from Stampin Up! with the sentiment. There we have it, Now onto another challenge! Have a wonderful night everyone and I will see you all real soon!

The Sweet stop #39

Happy Sunday everyone. I am actually ok with it being Sunday because this is a 3 day weekend which means I don't have to go to bed early cause I can sleep in tomorrow! Can we say Yayyyyyyyyy!! Tonight I completed yet another sketch challenge. This one is from The Sweet Stop. They always have fun sketches and this one was no exception. This one was with a twist. Our focal point had to be a Sentiment. The only issue I had was deciding on which sentiment to use. So, I decided on "One good friend is better than ten bad ones" So, tell me what you think of my creation. here are the supplies used: DP from My minds eye,build a brad (in the middle of the flowers) from Stampin Up! Prima flowers,Close to cocoa and whisper white card stock. Stampin up! Scallop trim border punch from Sell a Bration. Enjoy my friends and I will see you all real soon!

Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge

Here I have another completed sketch for you. This one is from Sweet sketch Wednesday Another Valentines day card. The stamp set I used on this one is "Love you much" from Stampin Up! I heat embossed the love in red embossing powder. The DP used is from We R Memory Keepers and is a double sided paper so I totally loved this paper. My color scheme is Summer sun,Bermuda Bay,Postitively Pink and white. I used my Nesties in the scallop circle and also used my ticket corner punch on the DP. I used a yellow bling brad from my stash as the center for the 2 flowers in pink and turquoise dots. Oh Valentines day is so fun! All the Pinks and reds just make me so happy!

Sketch Saturday sponsored by Simon Says

Here is my take on a sketch challenge from Sketch Saturday. I absolutely love Valentines day so when there are sketch challenges I cant wait to use my Valentines stuff. The image I used on this one is from Penny Black and is called "Here's my heart" Isnt she so purty? I even added a little bling on the hem of her dress and on the heart with my Spicas. Those markers are the best. I can add some sparkle anywhere I want to and it doesnt make a mess. Oh, did I mention I love glitter? Boy do I make a mess with glitter. (LOL!) There are also little pink pearls on the sentiment at the bottom of the card. That sentiment is a sticker and was the perfect size for me to put it on the "Modern label" from Stampin Up! The hearts on the top are from my Nesties and I also embossed them with my cuttlebug A2 EF's. The DP is from We R Memory Keepers and is called Sweetheart. So let me know what you think! I have to get working on some more Valentines so I am off to create! Enjoy!

Gina's January Stamp Camp

Happy Friday all, Oh, I am so Happy it is Friday! A weekend of just relaxing and not having to worry about being anywhere at any given time, YAYYYYYY!
So, with that being said, Last night was Gina's Monthly stamp camp and I totally look forward to these every month. Stamping and chatting with some really great people and learning new techniques that WOW! We made a total of 6 projects and all of them are so darn cute I just have to share!
First one is a set of 4 Season themed calenders. Gina had 4 cards each with 3 months on them with the season at the top!

The next project was a card using the faux metal tag technique(I think that is what it is called) Isn't the little doggie cute?

The next project is an adorable little mail box with 2 Hershey's nuggets inside. Look at that little flag. All set for Valentines day!

And the final project is a little pocket using the Stampin Up! Petal Card "Big Die" and we put a little Ghirardelli square chocolate in it and tied it with a white organza ribbon and added the stamped tag. Easy Peasy and so cute! All the products we used are from Stampin Up!

And finally, all of us with our completed projects. Like I said, I sooooo look forward to Gina's stamp camps every month and if you live in the San Francisco bay area you should join me!

The Sweet Stop Challenge #37

Hello all, Well here I am with a new completed challenge. This one is for "The Sweet Stop" Sketch challenge blog. This was a fun challenge and I decided to pull out one of my neglected Bellas to use on this creation. Her name is "Emmybella" My color scheme was Post. Pink, Green Galore and black. I love pink with anything. I colored Emmys pants in with my Copics and her shirt with one of my Gelly Pens. The green bag was with green Spica and also her purse with a gelly pen. I added some Pink and green ribbon from my stash and the prima flowers in green polka dots and pink. The DP is from Debbie Mumm and you cant see it too well, but there is embossing in the pink and green lines on the DP. I also used my D'vine swirl EF to add a little texture!
Let me know what you think!


Off I go to a stamp camp, I so look forward to these every month. I will share our projects that we create with you all tomorrow!


Hugs!!
