Instyle Stamps Blog Hop!

It's Blog Hop time at Instyle Stamps! Yay! If you are following the hop, you should have just left Cathy's Blog if not you can always start from the ISS Blog. This hop our theme was giving thanks. I made some goodie bags with thank you notes for some friends who have been helping me plan a party. I cut the bags with my cricut and used the Willows Digi image from ISS for the thank you cards. I added some dots around the willows to make them look full and added a frame using a ruler and pen.
Thanks for stopping by! Your next stop is Barbara's Blog, hope you have fun!

Crafty Sentiments Male Card/Project

Hello everyone it's Thursday again and that means another CS Challenge! This week our challenge is to make a male oriented card/project. I tend to make my projects for me so when I have to make a bday card for a male I tend to get stumped. I tried to keep my card as simple as possible...since most men don't like girly stuff. :) I used the newly released Mike acrylic stamp and colored him with copics and prisma markers. Thanks for stopping by! To enter your card and see the rest of the design team's creations check out the Crafty Sentiments Blog!

Paper: From the lovely Virginia

Gigi Notebook

Hello everyone!
I just wanted to share a $1 notebook I altered . Isn't Gigi adorable? I took the front and back cover of the notebook and glued AC paper on and then adhered the colored Gigi and bow onto the front cover. Very simple yet Gigi makes the notebook look fab. Don't forget ISS is still having a stamp dollar sale at the ISS Store! Thanks for stopping by!

Crafty Sentiments Blog Hop!

Happy Thursday Everyone! Crafty Sentiments is releasing 4 new adorable stamps and to celebrate we are having a blog hop. Two lucky people will win 1 new release stamp. All you have to to is joing the blog hop and leave a comment at the Crafty Sentiments Blog when you are done. You should have arrived from Jo's Blog if not you can go back to the Crafty Sentiments Blog and start there. We were told to create anything but a card so I thought it would be nice if new release Amy with letter was visiting a friend.

I stamped the rooftop with a MS Stamp and added some glitter to the roof edges. I printed out one of the new release digi papers to cover all four sides of the house. I love that green.

I got the template from Paperpasttimes. As you can see the house opens from the top. I had so much fun making this house for Amy. I hope you all like it!

Here is a preview of some of the newly released digi papers, aren't the gorgeous? Okay, on to your next stop, Heather's Blog.
