Last minute card....

I totally forgot that I wanted to enter into the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge for this week.....Details about the card will be explained later. I felt like this was the perfect card for me because I've had Christmas on the brain and the challenge was anything Hot~Tropical!

Hope you guys enjoy it! This might just be my Christmas card for this year :)

Busy Busy Busy.....

Hey Everyone,

I thought I'd do a quick post before heading out for the night. My brother-in-law is turning the BIG 21!! So we're going out for dinner and drinks and than back home for hanging out for the rest of the night. Then tomorrow my sister-in-law will be joining us all for lunch and pie {because my b.i.l. doesn't like cake:)}.

So as I've been posting video's this past week, I've also been creating behind the scenes! Tons of cards and I made a home decor project :-o YES HOME DECOR!! I was chatting with my buddy Cristi from Scrappin 5 Little Cupcakes all night, as we do most nights LOL and I felt motivated to create. So I had received a vinyl "T" in my Starter Kit from Stampin' Up! and they suggest not to apply vinyl to a textured surface. Well, in Florida, the in thing is textured walls so i didn't want to risk putting it on the wall and it looking Funky! hahah so this is what I created!!!

I absolutely LOVE the way it turned out!!! And want to know how much it cost me???? $2.50!!!!! The frame was on clearance at walmart and yes the paper did cost me money and so did the "T" but that was part of my starter kit. So lets say that the project overall probably cost me $10?? FANTASTIC PRICE!! I decorated the back with paper, and than I put the vinyl on the glass. That way if I'm tired of the background, I can just change it and put something else in the frame! The flowers are from Forever Young Cartridge. I did make a video to show you how I made it, and I made it as I went along. There wasn't too much preplanning, just the colors were planned!
What do you all think??? I really hope that you enjoy it! Have a great weekend!

Episode 15- Coloring with bic and sharpie

Hey Everyone!!

Here is a video of me coloring with Bic and Sharpie Markers. This video will show you how to color with them and get a similar look to copics. They do not color anywhere near as nice as copics with the shading techniques but they are much more affordable and do the job for me :) I hope that you guys enjoy it and if your interested in seeing more coloring video's, id be more than happy to do more! Just leave me a comment and let me know!

Missing in Action

Hey Everyone,

I apologize for being a bit MIA recently. I had so much planned for this week!! Someone had asked me to show my ribbon storage again and explain how i made it, someone else wanted me to do an updated video on my post-it note holders, a little bit more detailed and written out, my craft space is finally updated and I was going to shoot a video on it. I also have a video done that needs to be edited on my mini "milk carton" used for Momo's Challenge. Unfortunately, my family was hit with tragedy....

My husband just found out on late Sunday Night that his best friends mother was, who helped in raising him and was best friends with his own mother, was in a coma and not expected to make it through the night. She was diagnosed with Cancer a while back but did not want anyone to know because she didn't want anyone to worry. So on Sunday, my husband was talking to his best friend and found out he was in town and what was going on....we rushed out of the house and spent the majority of the night by her bedside with his best friend. Needless to say, my husband was in utter shock for not knowing and just a wreck from someone so close to him being taken away. He's known his best friend since the age of 1, when they still would run around together in diapers, and he was just devastated to have to lose someone, she was like a second mother. We got word yesterday morning that she had passed. So, I've been trying to keep myself occupied and busy around the house and when Jesse gets home from work, I spend my evenings with him to keep him from thinking too much.

So I apologize but I wont be posting much this week.....I just ask that you please keep my husbands best friend in your prayers as his mother was last of his close family who was still alive and he will be returning home on Monday to Japan where he lives and is serving our country in the Air Force.

Episode 12 - Spinner Card

Hey Everyone!!

I'm sorry that this is being posted so late but I was having a LOT of trouble with my editing software!! Better late than never than, right?!?!?

I really hope you guys enjoy the video and try this card out!

Also, I've been thinking about possibly doing a "Q & A" Video so that you all can get to know me better...please leave me a comment on this post asking questions you'd like me to answer. If I get enough comments...I'll definitely get brave and sit behind the camera :)


Its finally up!!!! I'm so sorry for the delay everyone! I know I promised the design and the spinner card tutorial yesterday and it was all going to happen until my husband decided, when he came home for lunch, that he DID indeed want a desk like mine from IKEA. So as a good wife(and because I need some more organizing stuff :)) I took the hour and a half drive up to Tampa, got all my stuff that I wanted/needed, headed to the warehouse and lift the table tops(lightweight) and the smaller expedit(90 stinkin pounds!) in the back of my jeep and made my way back home. Then we had dinner, assembled and by the time that was done we were both exhausted! So I do apologize for the delay.

But the new blog design is up!!! And I'm SOOOOO thrilled!!! What do you all think??

I really have to give a HUGE THANK YOU TO MY FRIEND CRISTI (scrappin5littlecupcakes.blogspot.com) She has been nothing but a blessing in this whole process! We started to become friends after she won my last giveaway and these last two weeks, we've either been texting or gmail messaging none stop!! I call her the "blogging genius"! LOL But in all seriousness...Thank You Cristi, you've been a great friend and tremendous help!

Lastly, spinner card will for sure be up tonight!!! Check back for it!! Thank you again y'all for your support and kind words!

PS....especially to Stephani, yes i'll be doing the Cake Decorating Mini Series! It will be up, hopefully by next week! Lots of editing needs to be done!

And the winner is....

Before I mention who the lucky person who has one "Once Upon a Princess" Cartridge AND the paper, I want to explain/apologize.

I (stupidly) forgot to mention not once but twice, on my post and in my video, that it is one comment per person. Due to the fact that I did not mention this, I have to count ever comment(besides the ones that I commented on) as 1 comment. So I really want to apologize to all of the followers who left only ONE comment---it isn't any one's fault but my own that I forgot this detail :( . I promise to be doing another giveaway in the near future....((maybe when I hit 400 subscribers)) and I'll be sure to mention that!

So......I also want to thank all of you ladies who left some amazing comments!! It was nice to receive some great words from some of close blogging friends (Momo, Cristi, Sarah!) and from all you new and old followers who left such amazing words! Words can convey SO much, you have really inspired me to keep on pushing through my creative halt to create more stuff for you all! Thank you soooo very much to my NEW followers! I'm glad that you like my creations and have decided to subscribe to my blog. Jesse (my hubby) was in shock when in the first night of the blog hop, I received 100 new subscribers! So THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!

OK now that I'm done accepting my Grammy (or at least that's what I'm making it sound like)! LOL

AND THE LUCKY WINNER IS..........................

LOL When I think of getting ready to go back to school....I think of going SCHOOL SUPPLY SHOPPING!!!!!!! Its probably one of my favorite things to shop for! Even during college, I would get so excited to get new binders, pencils, notebooks, pens!!! I would go with my sister a lot of the times too because she need way more, being as she is 8 years younger than me! This year I'll miss going for myself and for her. But I'm making her some stuff!

PS.....Check out a glimpse of the new blog design with my signature! Im So EXCITED!

Change, Change,.......and more Change?!?!?

So as if Changing the name of your blog, the look of it, participating in a blog hop isn't enough.....I've completely changed my craft corner!!! YES, after all the waiting to finally see it, I up and decided I wanted something totally different and changed my space!!! I know, I know...what was i thinking!?!?!?!? But I'm very much like my mother in the sense that I like to move my furniture around frequently to get it a little "UMPPPH"!! :) And since the rest of the house needs to stay in place to be functional and because of outlets....why not change my space??? So I did it!! My husband came home and said "Your not joking are you????" LOL So I'm still in the process of organizing and finding homes for things BUT I promise to post pictures soon or a short video.

Guess what Jesse, my hubby, surprised me with today?!?!?!?

I'm SOOO Excited!!!! I had mentioned to him earlier today that I wanted it and it was only $33.99 at Michael's. So he walked in empty handed and was telling me about his day, than walked into the other room and peeked his head back in. Said "oh I forgot to tell you" and when I looked over he had it in his hand!!! I'm so siked because Jesse hates going in there cause he has NO idea what anything is--as i mentioned before I don't think he even knows how to turn on my Cricut!!--and he normally doesn't go in there without me so I was SO HAPPY, oh and proud of him too! :)

Now all i need is the New Scrappy Mom's stamp set and I'm ready for HALLOWEEN!!

Be Sure to check back tomorrow for the Back to School Blog Hop!! It will be starting at Sarah at PinkCricut and be sure to visit every one's blog for great giveaways!
