#1 Dad Card

I'm just lovin' the Eco Modern designer paper from K&Company. Here's a Father's Day card that I made. Simple and to the point. Easily mass produced for all the other father's that we know. Enclosed inside the card is a "Father's Day Coupon" printed on kraft cardstock. This coupon was taken from the printable stamp set Assorted Coupons from The Cutting Cafe`. This stamp set contains six other coupons for other occassions. The "#1 Dad" circle sentiment was taken from the Shirt and Tie Card Set. For a tutorial on how this card was made, go here.

Happy Birthday Card

Hi everyone. Here is a birthday card I made today using the printable stamp set Birthday Fun from The Cutting Cafe`. This set comes with 63 images to use and abuse =) This card was meant to be masculine, no frills...maybe a little glitter, lol. I printed the stamp set on kraft cardstock and the designer paper used is K and Company - Eco Modern. The little party hat is a sticker embellishment for Jolee's Boutique. You can watch the making of this card here. Thanks for stopping by, now go craft something.

Ur a Hoot!

I got the most cutest card in the mail today.

Isn't she just adorable. My friend Sarah (LiveLoveandSCRAP!) sent this to me. Her and I have a thing for owls, who doesn't? She is a pro when it comes to making cards from her Cricut. THANK YOU SO MUCH Sarah! I love it.

Another Tag

Here's another tag I made for a fellow scrapper. I really like the colors I used in this one, purple and brown. Everything goes with brown. For the background colors, I used Glimmer Mist in Fully Purple and Moon Shadow Mist in Smokey Saphire. The sunflower petals in the background were embossed with copper embossing powder. The sunflower picture tag is from Graphic45 Botanicabella Collection. The brown lace used is from Webster's Pages. I used Ranger Distress Inks in Walnut Stain for the edges and Scattered straw for the sunflowers. Glimmer Mist in Suede was sprayed sporadically on the edges.For the edges around the tag, I used Rubb N Buff in Antique Gold. Last but not least I adhered Diamond Dust around the edges of the image. Enjoy!

Strawberry Festival

Hi Guys. Yesterday I went to the Strawberry Festival in Oxnard. I was joined by my sister, and two other lovely ladies, Deja & Roxy. We had a blast. I told them this is the most expensive stomach ache I ever bought, LOL. Here are some pics:

Some grilled corn.

Carne Asada Burrito.

Delicious Strawberry Funnel Cake.

And of course I had to bring some home with me. Yumm.

Thanks for stopping by.

Tags, Tags and more Tags

I've made several tags for some scrap friends in the past couple of weeks. These are cut from white file folders. Office supplies rock, LOL.

This one was made for my YouTube friend Rina (Scrapstress)
This next tag was made for another YouTube friend Steph (Sweetcraftychick).

I did flower swaps with these to sweet girls and they were amazing. Now these next two tags were made for some other scrap friends, they shall remain anonymous because they have yet to recieve these tags. It's a surprise, sort of.

Thanks for stopping by! Now go make something! =)
