To Early For Christmas Cards?

I don't think so! I had so much Cloe's Closet printed paper left over from making my twin mini album, I thought why not make Christmas cards.

I can't believe how busy I have been lately creating. I am getting ready to send some submissions in, and I can't wait. I feel that this is my year, and nothing is going to stop me.

On this card I used Jeni Bowlin journal card, Stickles, Pink Paislee glitter, Studio 8 rhinestones, Prima Flowers, May Art ribbon, and Making Memories Cloe's Closet line.

A Sneak Peak........

I thought I would post an update on what I am currently working on. It is a tribute to my Dad, a mini album. My Dad passed away 1997, and I miss him lots.
On the cover of the mini album is my favorite photo of him. I am so lucky to have an uncle who let me scan alot of photos that I did not have of him. I am proud to say that my Dad was very handsome, and yes my grandparents gave him a name that apparently he lived up to....LOL
I can't wait to show you the finished product.

Give A Little Thanks

Hello Blog World.......Lets Give Thanks! The many things I am thankful for are not things, they are my family.......
My husband Manuel, my 4 boys, and my Angel William in heaven. I am thankful to have 5 men who love me unconditionally. This is one very lucky lady.
This is a sweet simple card that I made last night and wanted to share with you. The tag, flower, and printed paper is from Dream Street. The green paper is from Making Memories, the lace ribbon is from May Arts, and the blue ribbon is from Bo Bunny.

My Twin Mini Book

My twin mini book has been a project I had been wanted to due for a very long time. I took a few of my favorite pictures of my twin Monica and I, and purchased a Bo Bunny mini book and went on a hunt for the perfect paper to use with the album.

I found Making Memories at my local Michael's and thought that color went perfect with all my images from way back when.

Just Believe

Just believe..........I have thought these words over and over again. It has been a favorite phrase of mine for years. I wanted to make a card with a cute rub on I found.

As I was sitting at my LSS store I though I wanted to do something different. I have been eyeing those cute little flowers that scrappers all over have been making out of printed paper.

I asked a fellow scrap artistfor help, and she said how difficult it was, and it takes time to make one. But as she was explaining this to me, she never once told me how to make it.

But if you know me, I only asked once for help. If I can't find the answer, then I move forward ,and make it my mission to learn on my own.

I simply cut a 12" printed card stock into 3/4" strips. I used 2 strips and fold them in half. So I took scissors and cut one side of the fold every 1/2" and started turning it in a circle. Every few turns, I put double sided tape on the bottom to keep it together. Just keep repeating the process until you get the desired look. I inked the edges and added Stickles for an added effect. I hope you guys like it.

I have found my MOJO again

So much has happened in the last year, where do I begin? I moved back to Southern California, and went from having a huge scrapbook room to none. This caused me to lose the urge to create anything. I stopped scrapbooking, card making, and posting anything here on my blog. I was layed off of one of my most favorite jobs ever as an administrator, was jobless for 8 months, found a new job only to be layed off again.

But change is good, and I am a firm believer that everthing happens for a reason. I just recently realized that scrapbooking has always been theraputic to me. I always seemed to scrapbook when needed to get away from all my worries. Which brings me here today, I seem to have found my Mojo again.........hurray!

So I hope to start inspiring you again when my new recent creations. Here is a spring card that I just worked on.
