With National Scrapbook day tomorrow, I took today to prepare. Recieved my Flip Hd camcorder today so I thought i would try it out by sharing what I picked up shopping today. My weekend is going to be jam packed with making videos tomorrow ( after i organize my hectic crafting area) as well as registration for TIM HOLTZ classes is bright and early sunday morning. So here is my video and I you enjoy it. I'll be putting these materials to work tomorrow.
Also wanted to mention that I purchased the Bazzil Cardstock in those specific colors to match my Carolyn Gavin Greenhouse Designer paper pack that has been sitting around for ages unused so hopefully i'll be able to crack into it a bit now that I have paper that matches exactly. (I used a copy of the stack in store to make sure the cardstock matches perfectly)
I am also expecting a package from Oh my Crafts that will have some cartridges and more supplies, hopefully it arrives tomorrow morning so i can put it to use as well.
Sleep tight and prepare for crafting tomorrow :)

This was actually a request from my good friend Sydney. As a brand new owner of a cricut machine she wanted to know how to make her mat's sticky again. Just a quick video about that. Also I wanted to say how sorry i am to my viewers about not posting videos as frequently my cam died. SO I'm patiently waiting for my new Flip Mino HD Cam to come in the mail! Shipping is so slow. SO then you can see me in HD :) Also I will be doing some haul videos with that when it comes.

Whew I am finally done now! I was asked to make some simple cards for some scraps. This is what I came up with. Now that I am finally finished with this huge project. I have more time to devote to my daughter, family and of course my website. I have some new tools ordered and will be here at the end of the week, as well as a fresh batch of papers and stamps. So i will once again be on the roll with creating wonderful projects for my viewers. Next video will be a quick one showing you how to get those cricut mats nice and sticky again for just pennies! Keep your eyes peeled for that Episode Tomorrow.

Hey everyone. SOrry about the delay. I made a previous Video For Episode 2, it was an alligator card, but a problem with my theme music made the video too long and rejected by youtube. So HEre is my episode 3 and bumped up to episode 2. I hope you enjoy. I'm still getting used to my video software and working with a tripod so forgive me. I made the video in 2 parts the gypsy and the assembly tutorial so that those who want to watch only one of the parts can do so. Hope this helps someone out there. Next video will be posted Friday. :)

Chalk(on elephant ears) : Cat's Eyes Frost White
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Spots and Dots

Mojo Monday Contest based on the following sketch. I developed a nice card using paper from Prima "Nursery Tales" that I picked up at michaels just the other day
Please click for a better look at the card. I embossed the Chocolate cocoa paper with my D'vine swirl cuttlebug folder and it lays on a lavender a2 cardstock base. The bunny Image is Flocked, and is raised on dimensions for a little pop! Underneath there is a strip of pearlized lime cardstock and white ribbon for an accent. for the accents i used 2 medium large "got prima" vintage flowers, with gem brads in the center (Joann's Essentials )

I thought it would never happen, But I finally have a scrap space. It's not a whole room, but it's perfect. It's in our bedroom. Used a card table and a hospital style bed table on top to make a shelf for my Big Bug and things that I easily reach. It's not all clean and organized yet, but it's getting there.
Also Put up a small board to show case my creations :)
I also have organizers thanks to a 50% off sale on scrapbooking storage at michaels. This is the cleanest it is ever...Scrapping is a messy gig, but someone's gotta do it. :)
