Blast off!!!!

Hey Folks....Happy Easter to all of you!!!! Today I wanted to show you a couple of projects I made with the so very awesome Robot collection from Best Creation. What's even better is when you mix BC papers with a SRM Stickers and Tubes. I'd say...they are Out of this World!!!!!

 Oh and let me share a little secret with see this card above????? It was easy peasy because I used a new cricut cartridge calley "Just Because". Not only does it cut out the shapes of your cards, it makes the envelopes, sweet little pictures and sentiments....the possiblities are endless and it is my new best friend. LOL!!!! Have a wonderful day!

Just Sharing....

Isn't it terrible when you forget something???? Or you have that nagging thought in the back of your mind that you may or may not have forgotten to do something. Well, sometimes I feel like I lost my noggin' somewhere between now and last year. LOL!!!! I am so ADD that it is scary. Now I have a son and a daughter who are ADD. I think we all learned our coping skills together but yet, I still have my moments just as they do.

Anywhoooo, I was looking at some cards I had done and absolutely could not remember if I had shared them before. But, I figure if you have seen them, maybe someone else hasn't. So, I am going to share them anyway. I hope you enjoy!

Please know that if you ever have any questions about what I make, just ask in the comment section and leave me an email address and I will be more than happy to answer you back.

Lastly, I want to wish you and your family a Very Happy Easter. I know I am very thankful for my Lord and Saviour and His sacrafice. Blessings to you all!!!!!

I have to say that I was beyond thrilled when I got my hands on the new "Robot" papers from Best Creation. I am always such a sucker for boy papers and these did not disappoint. Better yet, prior to receiving this wonderful package of goodies, our family along with grandparents had the wonderful opportunity to visit the Space Center of Houston. It was so amazing!!!!!!! We toured  real life training facilities and then the kids got to run around a playground of interactive devices that allowed them to see what life was like in space o r on a space shuttle. What a wonderful day we had!!! Ok, back to these papers.....I finally get to reveal my page!!!! Once again we worked with sketches which is the theme of the week so here is my layout and the sketch I used.

I hope you like it because I loved making it and there will be more where that came from. You must check out this line and some of the other fab creations from the design team HERE.

Have a wonderful day!!!!!

Stampin'Up and SRM

Lately, I have been in the mood for making cards...especially with stamped images. I know this is not a new concept, but I have been terrified of this side of paper crafting so I am truly happy that I am conquering my fears. Anyway, last week I received these "oh so elegant" stamps from Stampin'Up and I just had to pull them out and play. The idea of my card comes from various cards out of the Stampin'Up catalog. I just love that they inpire you with so many creative ideas!!! Anyway, here is one that I did and for the sentiment I guessed it, SRM Stickers!!!!! I thought it would be cool to combine the two.

This is the stamp set I used called "Nature Walk". An absolute gorgeous stamp set!!!!
Don't forget...I am still having a drawing for a set of stamps from Stampin'Up along with so surprise goodies! All You have to do is sign up for my Newsletter on my Stampin'Up website HERE.

Have a Fabulous Day!

Stampin' Up & Free Goodies

I found another tutorial that I thought you might enjoy. Tami is a fellow Stampin'Up demonstrator and I just loooove her tutorials!!!!! I don't know about you but I have noticed a huge trend growing with stamps and card making. Even Two Peas has delegated an entire section of their site to cards and products needed for card making. That's where I come in as well....I want you to know that I am going to start working more with stamps from Stampin'Up and try to show you the fab products that we have that are comparable and in my opinion, the best stamps out there. Also, I would love to be your personal demonstrator. We have wonderful card stock, stamp pads of all colors, and of course fantastic stamps (clear or wood mount).

If I can be of any help, just know that I will do my best to work with you in any way that I can. As you can tell, I love this craft and I enjoy growing and pursuing all avenues that this hobby has to offer. Please check out my website in  the upper left corner of my blog and I would love for you to register for my monthly newsletter. I am also going to hold a drawing....from now till the end of the month, whoever registers for my newsletter, I will have a drawing for a set of Stampin'Up birthday stamps along with a fab RAK of goodies that I stumbled across during my move. Good luck to you all and thank you for always stopping by my little spot of the world. I appreciate each and every one of you!!!!!!!

Hugs xoxoxoxox

SRM and Cosmo

Happy Monday everyone!!!! Are you suffering from Mon-day-itis like me? I am never very good when it comes to starting off my week. There is just something about giving up a perfectly good weekend and like most we do not want to give up a good thing.

Well, seems I have a little catching up to do. I just realized that I did not share a recent combo event that SRM stickers had with Cosmo Cricket. Can you imagine my squeal of delight when I received a fab box of goodies from Cosmo?????? Not only did they give me 1 new line, they gave me all 3 of their new lines!!!!!! Enough of my is the layout I used for the fab crossover event....

Lastly, here is an Easter project also done for SRM Stickers. You name it, they have it. Love these tubes and all the many creative ways to work with them. They work perfectly for any occasion.

That's all for now ....Hope you find your Monday more productive then mine.

Happy Scrappin'
