Mojo Monday 433

Image
So I was trying to get into the card making groove but it was a pretty busy week. I finally got a moment to post my project. I decided to do some something with my SU flower builder punch. I think I liked the muted colors but I am not sure about it. I used the SU Sunburst sayings stamp set for the sentiment. I of course embossed the background with a Cuttlebug embossing folder named Floral Fantasy.

Hope you enjoy it!

Mojo Monday 432

Another Post? Already? I must be getting super efficient! So I decided to do the Mojo Monday design challenge using a mix of both my new and old stuff and techniques.

This is the design for this week.
I decided not to do a square card, only because I wanted to try making in in the size I am most familiar with.
So, let me know what you think!
I used my Honey Comb Happiness stamp set that I got from Stampin' Up. I used some of my scrap paper from my box and only used whisper white to stamp the sentiment and images. I used a surprise...embossing folder! Its from Sizzix and it's called Daisy Blast. I used a glitter card from a DCWV box that I had. I embellished it with some pearls I got at the craft store.

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Welcome to 2016?? OMG where have I been??

Image
Its been a long time since I have been on here, but I wanted to get back on my crafting track. I recently joined a group of lovely ladies who are superb crafters and I have been inspired to make some goals to get more of the crafting I was doing back in my life. So this post is just to show some of the items that I have recently made. I have started expanding my card making into some stamping which I used to shy away from because I thought I could never have a steady enough hand for it. So take a look and let me know what you think. If you lost your crafting way, lets find it together!

2016 Crafting Goals
52 cards
52 scrapbook pages(not sure where to even begin)
Getting more organized with my crafting supplies (where is it???)


So this Happy Birthday card has been on my mind for a long time.It was on my Pinterest board for a long time. First, I loved the Cuttlebug embossing folder, I searched high and low for it. I also loved the simplicty of of it. I was wrong about that. I couldn'…

It's the Holiday Season

I really wish that I had more time to enjoy myself this holiday season. Suddenly we are 4 days from Christmas and I am barely getting my cards done! I blame it on the flu which hit me pretty bad late last week, but I think I always feel pressed for time around this time of year. So below are just some of my card creations. I would explain them better if I didn't have a million things to do. Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday filled with joy and togetherness with the ones you love!
 This one is for my BFF I wish I could be closer to her so that we could share the holidays like we used to. I used Joys of the Season cartridge to create the card.
 I love the idea of a Santa card that was simple and yet cute. I took a piece of velvet ribbon and added the buckle embellishment.
I had tried to make this card interesting. I think Gingy, looks like he is pretty happy. I added some glitter to make him more festive.
 I still love those foam snowflake stickers. Too bad I used the last of th…

It's Mojo Time!

Another year is quickly coming to an end and I am once again trying to get creative with making my Christmas cards, unfortunately the creative juices were not flowing and I literally couldn't find most of my favorite crafting supplies. So here is what I could come up with for this weeks Mojo Monday challenge.                                                                                           I went for a winter blue color scheme and I found some of my favorite snowflakes in my craft box. I used Storybook to cut out my shape for my phrase. I was going to cut out some custom snowflake borders but the scale I was trying to use wouldn't work. After several tries, I finally gave up and decided the snowflake ribbon would look just as nice I hope you enjoy my simple take on this weeks project. Hopefully I can once again create a little something special next time!

Birthday Bunch Mojo Monday

I am finally getting back into the groove of things with this latest Mojo Monday sketch. I hope that you enjoy them!    I wanted to make something festive for my friends birthday and I thought this would be a great way to test my latest skills. I used my Sizzix Texture Boutique Embosser on the base of both of the cards. I used Spots & Dots for the top one and African Batik for the green one. Those are both Cuttlebug folders but they work just the same as the Sizzix ones. I used my Storybook Cricut cartridge to make the circle and scallop and used Sweet Treats for the sentiment on the green card.. I used my liquid pearls along with my stamps. I have to admit I wasn't too sure if I could make this as cute as I imagined them.


I hope that you enjoy them!

It's another sketch and I just got finished with it! Take a look at my creation below and try making your own Mojo Monday creation.





If you haven't noticed I love pink and purple. So I took a little  time and created a mix of my favorites. I decided to keep it simple. I found the butterfly in my die cuts. I used my Sizzix to emboss the squares. I hope you enjoy it!
