A picture frame..

Hello hello, how are you? So, I went shopping a few months back with my crafty friends... and we both brought the Tim Holtz sizzix small easel die. The easel die sat at my craft corner for a while... I decided to use another die to create a frame. And Viola! I used the Simply Betty Stamps Betty Addams rubber stamps and the frame was also stamped with the Hero Arts background stamps, then distressed. I also used the My Favorite Things die-amics dies to create the flowers, and I added a leaf ribbon (dyed with forest moss distress stain).

Hope you like it and happy crafting! Smiley from

Day 2 of class....

Hi hi, it was day 2 of class yesterday.... so so fun. I'm totally enjoying inking up glossy paper and just having inky fingers!

Here is a card using the 'Kissing' technique.Smiley from millan.netI just loveeee the gorgeous background stamps from Hero Arts (friend definition and fabric design) and how about the flower with border punches, huh? Hehe! The sentiment is from Penny Black.

And here is my page of this week the Greeting Farm's heart journaling class, the theme is 'One Word', since halloween is coming (plus, I live in New England, we live to use the word WICKED a lot), so why not to do a halloween page. The paper is from My Minds' Eye Haunted and I also use some Tim Holtz dies and stamp to dress up the page.

Until tomorrow....Smiley from

Day 1 of the Inspiration Showcase.

Hi hi, how's going? It was day 1 of the Jennifer McGuire's Inspirations Showcase class yesterday, super super fun. Plus, it was jam packed with awesome techniques. Smiley from

Here is card #1. I used a kraft card stock from Memory Box. And the background of the card is stamp by Stamper Anonymous on glossy paper, then distressed with TH distress ink in spun sugar (my favorite color) and the beautiful border is also from Memory Box. And finally the sentiment is from Amuse.

Card #2 - I used the sketch from the class sample. I choose the color combination of green and purple. I used this gorgeous lotus background from Hero Arts, stamped it with Ranger dauber paint and distressed in milled lavender and dusty concord. And the 'Bonjour' sentiment is also from Amuse.

Hope you like it. Off to craft some more...Smiley from

Happy Weekend!

Hello and how are you? Hope you are enjoying the weekend. It was a beautiful day in New England. DH and I did some errands and we enjoyed a relaxing day. And here is a simple card that I made with the newest release of the Sister Stamps. This is Yoko, she is just adorable and super super cute.

The paper is from K & Company Cute 'N Paste mat pat and I colored Yoko with Copic markers and of course she needs some bling! So, I added some champagne stickles. Hope you like it.
