Mini using build a page

Ok so I've been MIA for a while now as I've been working lots of hours at my job and come home too tired to craft. But I did find some time to make this sweet little mini. The pages are from the tutorial by Kathy Files - better known as the paperphenomenon wonder women. I LOVE her work and had to try my hand at these fun pages. The paperpack is a Melody Ross designer collection I snagged at Hobby lobby for $9 on clearance. The chipboard is medium weight for the covers. Well let me know what y'all think about it.

I'm not sure if I'm all finished yet or if I want to add some more embellishments on the tag pages and pockets.Well have a wonderful Monday.HugSSandra

Lim inspired card






OK so I've been drooling over all the lovely cards that Lim make for a WHILE now and finally got a chance to CASE one of her beauties.

This card was made for a friend who asked me to custom make a birthday card. LOL I could go "artisticly" crazy as long as the main color was green and NO YELLOW!!! So what do YOU think>? Did I get it right?

Enjoy the pics.

Holy cow Batman!!

Well it's been a while since I've been to blogland and I must say I'm a horrible blogger lol. I manage to check my email everyday and find time to browse SCS but blog? Well I guess I'd better get INTO the game of blogging way more serious.

I have been playing quite a bit the last week but haven't got any finished projects to show just yet. I joined a mini recipe book swap so I was working on that. To add to my load of halfway done projects I just found Kathy on Ustream and HAD to make one of her mini's to see how well they work. They are super cute and she does a FANTABULOUS job of showing you exactly how to do them. When I'm done with the mini I'm working on I'll post pics to show you all what I mean.

I also just bought a tutorial for a POSH *prepared organized simplified handbook* over on Paper phenomenon blog so go check it out girlies, it's A M A Z I N G !!!!

Well last but not least here is a card I made for one of the challenges they had over on SCS a few weeks ago.

Hope to see you all soon.

Create with Connie and Mary -160


I saw a REALLY cute card on Renee van Stralen's blog and just HAD to try it. After I looked at her card I also noticed that the Dirty Dozen had a challenge going on on SCS, so I combined the two challenges and came up with this card.

Saturday sketch challenge 205



Wow been a while since I blogged. Life just doesn't cooperate when you want it to eh?

I just loved this sketch over on the Stamping 411 site so I had to give it a go. I used a lot of retired products as this is what I have most of right now. Hopefully I can remedy that in a while. I'm looking forward to the new catty in July, but before then I'm sure I'll be splurging on some goodies from the retired list as well.

So enjoy the sketch and if you feel like playing along here is the website.

SSC201


So I didn't do much stamping this weekend, but I sure did want to partake in the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge.

I used some retired papers for this, but OH BOY this card is cute. I sponged on some of the Champagne mist on the stamp after I inked it up with my two colors. The sparkle is amazing and I wish I could show you but the camera sure didn't pick it up too good.

Well off I go to play some more.

Oh boy it was so much fun browsing the Featured Stamper's gallery over on SCS today. I had SUCH a hard time narrowing it down but finally decided on these 2 cards.

Polka Dots
Pretty flowers

I love the clean and simple style so much, but stepped up the flower card on the top card.

Hope you like.

My Digital Studio


Hello stampers!!! Today I saw this REALLY cute card on SCS and just had to try my hand at it on MDS! So here's the card I made using Stampin Up's My Digital Studio.

The reason I've tried copying a handmade papercard is because I went to a Stampin Up seminar in Holland this weekend. Friday night was spent at a MDS class and I learned a lot!!! So I'm practicing a bit to see if I can copy cards to make them look like the paper kind.

So if you own MDS go try your hand at CASEING!!!

I'll post pics of the event we had this weekend.
