Wanderlust Book

I'm so happy I signed up for Everything Art's Wanderlust class. I was hesitant at first because this is an international class and there are soooo many fabulous artists in the world. And I am just a wanna-be:-) I wasn't sure if I would even open one of the many beautiful colors of paint I like to buy, and never use. So, I took Katarzyna's advice and took a few minutes for myself and laid down some paint. The first weeks them was to use one word that describes myself. Here is what I came up with.

I played around with paint, stencils, and modeling paste. I still have a lot to learn. Like.. don't use glimmer mist after stamping with distress ink and be careful cleaning a palette knife with paint on it.

Brewin' Up Birthday Wishes

Hello my crafty friends! Today I would like to share with you the challenge card I made for Seize The Birthday blog.  I tried the toppings option,  Clean and Simple.  I used the stamp and dies from Be A Barista and Caffeinated Cups sets by Reverse Confetti. The patterned cardstock is from Fancy Pants Designs Summer's End stack.

Reverse Confetti Sketch Challenge 32

Hello crafty friends!  Today I would like to share with you the card I made for this month's challenge at Reverse Confetti. I used "Class Act" stamp and die sets. I also thought the DCWV Grade School stack worked perfectly with the stamp set. I used a little glossy accents on the leaf and stem and popped the apple up with foam adhesive. The sentiment was stamped on the chalkboard cardstock with white craft ink. I inked all edges with Coal Miner chalk ink from Quick Quotes

Christmas Tags

I'm am really lovin' these adorable Christmas tags I made at a Fetti Fans class at The Little Blue House this week.


This tag I used for the Kindergarten teacher's gift card. I tied it to a cute coffee mug.

These were a super easy trio. When opened the "to and from" are stamped. I added a little Wink of Stella on the words and the leaf edges.

Merry Christmas Tags

Hope y'all are having a wonderful holiday season. I'm really lovin' this warmer December weather here in Texas. I know the kids miss the snow, but they've never had to drive in it 6 months out of the year. Here is one of my favorite Little Blue House tag kits so far. So sparkly with lots of Stickles and Wink of Stella. Love, Love, Love it!

I think Tracy has a few more kits left so check out her site by clicking on the link above. Happy Holidays to all of you! Thanks for stopping by. Have a creative day:-)
