It's MY BIRTHDAY!!!!

Yeah, Today is my birthday and I finally got to sit down for a couple hours.   I got a great deal on some Lindy's and Tattered Angels.  So I knew I had to use some.   Janice has some of the cutest images this summer.   So I had to rush and get this Image Manga Beach Digi 2,   there are 2 different sets of these cute girls.  Each set has multiple positions also.  So run over to www.scrappersdelight.com/store         and pick you up some great images for a super great price. 

I used a light blue cardstock cut at 5 in wide, 12 in long folded down the middle.  Then ran the front cover in a cuttlebug folder.   I then glimmer misted it with a dark blue and after it was dried I ran an emery board and filed the dots, so the light blue came out.  I then folded the front cover in half,  added some ribbon where the middle of my image would be.   Placed the image on the bottom half of the front cover.  Inside I placed some paper and cut out thin chipboard 2 different dies from www.creativetimeforme.com  I also used her corrisponding stamps to go with these dies to put an edge on them.  I also used her many greetings set for the different sentiments. 

 I made a set of these cards to put in my stash.  I am really glad I used this great blue and stepped away from the "NORM".  Hope you enjoy the cards and rush over and get this image.

Water Fun in the Sun

Here is a 2 page layout I made of some old photos of my son at the waterpark.   I used some great boy images from www.scrappersdelight.com/store  Probably should have printed him out a little larger, but the layout came together after I colored.   I think it worked great though, and adds so much to the layout than just putting pictures on a page.  I love to just sit around and color images, that way I can keep a stash of images ready to go when I need a project.  Janice has such a variety of images to fit any type of season and projects.  So you need to check out all her great images, and you can't beat the prices anywhere.  

Thanks for the comments and looking at my layout,  I just used a punch of scrapes and a little distress ink.   Love how this turned out.

Robo Quick and Easy

Who doesn't love a quick and easy card.   Even if a card can come together quickly it should still look clean and sharp.  I love this little robot by Janice at www.scrappersdelight.com/store.  You can get this little guy in many different poses.  So which ever pose you choose, you will not be making a mistake.  Here is a short video I made showing you a quick and simple but clean card using this great little robot.

Fun Layout


I knew when I saw this robot, he was going to be perfect for my son's old photos.  I son loved and still does love robots. I blew up Chip from www.scrappersdelight.com/store   Janice has such a great ability to draw things from pretty princesses to this cute robot for the boys.

Of course I like doing girly layouts best,  but what do you do when you have 2 boys.  So I dug thru and found some old photos of my son,  I loved looking at them.  I swear, 7 years have gone by and he still makes the same expression, probably always will. 

I used my spica pens to color the robot.  Really have to practice more with my copics,  but I was to heavy handed and didn't like it. But the spica pens made him really cute and very glittery.  So I still could bring some glam into my boys layouts.   Found some textured bazzil paper at micheals and an old stack of DCWV paper and love how it looks fun.  Threw on some buttons and thickers for added fun.   We homeschool so this was a day for show and tell, homeschool style. 

Hope you can find some inspiration.  Thanks for looking.

Father's Day Cards

Well I have done the impossible,  I managed to make 5 cards with no flowers, bling or glitz.  I am glad this holiday only comes along once a year,  I couldn't handle it more than that.    My cards are all using the new label images from Janice at www.scrappersdelight.com/store   I love that I can size these labels any size, layer them up, color whatever to suit my project.   I used DCWV Tattered Time and BO Bunny Timepiece.  All the cards are 5 x7 in and simple layouts.  Here are some pics and a video.  Thanks for looking!

Girl with Attitude

The challange going on at Scrapper's Delights Blog is a Gothic Challange.  Janice has some great images to choose from including some new ones this month.  I chose of of these girls with attitude to make a card.  At this time I have left the card blank so I can put a sentiment when I decide where it is going.   This girl was so easy to color up with my copics.  I just love easel cards and lots of glitter.   She is still a girly girl after all.   Visit www.scrappersdelight.com/store for some great images and come participate in the challange.

Rainy day

I just absolutely love this little image.  She is so super sweet and she even comes with sentiments.  So this time I made a card and used one 5the sentiments that comes with it.   She does  come with two different sentiments.   You can find this beautiful girl at scrappersdelight.com/store 

For the card is 5 x  7in white base.   I used Kaiser Kraft Sweet Nothings for the bottom paper,  I embossed the coordinations paper with a friskers texture plate that has rain drops, and then used some faded jeans distress ink to make it pop a  little.   Popped up this beautiful image that I colored with copics and the sentiment stamp cut with spellbinder dies.  Added a couple little flowers from the Creative soup for the soul zibbet store.

Queen Beecause

Janice has a whole series of Bees.   This is my favorite, the Queen Bee,  I just love her and her attitude. The bees are so easy to color and spruce up.   Visit http://scrappersdelights.com/store/  to see these whole series. 

The card base measures 5 1/2 x 5 1/2.    I used stickles for the wings and antanea, then a little glossy accents on the honey stick.   I made up the saying on the tag.    Here is a video for more detail.

Cute Bee

Isn't this Bee just the cutest thing ever.   Perfect for a quick card,   he just needs a little color and poof you have a perfect little Hello.   Janice at http://scrappersdelights.com  has a whole series of bee images.  You can get this guy in many poses and he has lots of personality.   There is even a queen bee I am going to use  for Mother's Day cards.

This card was made with some scraps I had on hand and a cute sentiment from Emma at my creative time,  add a little bling and poof, got a wonderful card.

Bee Strong

So  I wasn't sure what I was going to do after I colored this image.  I was sitting looking at it when I decided to make rain drops.   Then I just came up with the sentiment.  The card made itself after that.
Here is the thing,  had no idea what I would do with this card.  The night I made this I found out one of co workers found out she has non hodgeskins lymphoma.   So this this card is now perfect for her road ahead. 

 Thanks to Janice for the great image, and there is a whole set of bee images to choose from. Visit http://scrappersdelights.com/store/ .  

I used a a spellbinder die, but honestly I am not very fond of it.  I can't seem to get it to cut clearly and would take any advice. 
I used a piece of black bulap material.  The flower petals  and mesh bling are both available at http://www.zibbet.com/creativesoupforthesoul

Today I bring you news of a challange sponsored by Scrappers Delights. THe challange is located http://craftyourpassionchallenges.blogspot.co.uk/  For Janices great images come visit the store and blog at www.scrappersdelights.com   I made a card for this challange and the Throw back Thursday Challange at http://www.creativetimeforme.com/   Using Janice image I made a set of cards to give as a gift.  I used my cricut and george cartridge to make a shaped card with my gypsy.   I used a different color tone for each image.  I used some dotted resistant paper that I sprayed with my Lindys to coordinate with the color I chose to color each clown.  The clowns are colored with copics, and accented with small flowers. I am attaching the photo, but there is a video also. 

Come join us at both these challanges for lots of fun.

Scrapper Delights Princess

I just absolutely love this series of images from Janice at www.scrappersdelight.com  She is so much fun to color and use.  I made this greeting card today with a vintage feel.   The boy and girl dancing was perfect for some music paper that I had gotten in the loose paper at hobby lobby.   And of course I have to add some flowers from http://www.zibbet.com/creativesoupforthesoul   Sentiment is from http://www.creativetimeforme.com/

I hope you will get all the princess images from scrappersdelight,  they are to gorgeous to pass up.

Getting Ready for Easter

Hi everyone.  I am back with my digital scrappers image for Feb.  If you make Easter layouts or cards this image is for you.   Just love this little girl and the bench is so versitale.   Using my copics and fussy cut her out, a little pop dots and she sits on the bench so well.   I have said this before, but the advantage to digital images is you regulate the size, so big or small you can use these images for so much.I bought a bunch of white nylon butterflies and then used my copics to color.    Hope you enjoy my Springy Easter Card.

Scrapper's Delight Layout

Hi everyone,  its my turn to post on www.scrappersdelight.com     Featuring the Feb. digitals  Parka.  Last week I posted a card in which was a cute spring greeting card.  This time I left the bunny ears and found some old photos of my dtr.   looking for easter eggs.   Turned out super sweet.  Paper is just loose paper you find at Hobby Lobby.  I enlarged the digital images so they would look better on layout page.  You can't see the dimention, but I took my sissors and clipped around the grass edge to frill it a little.   Popped the grass and little Parka up on dots.   Didn't get to frilly this time, was looking for a simple layout.   Had some Jolee stickers in my stash.  Hope this gives you an idea how to use this SUPER SWEET IMAGES.

Scrappers Delight Parka

Love the new release this month from www.scrappersdelight.com.   This cute little girl comes in many poses and you can leave on or off the bunny ears. She is just so much fun, and so easy to color.   Here I colored her without the bunny ears and made a pretty spring card.   I also used one of the new scene images.  After cutting out the grass scene,  I clipped little "shreds"  around the edge to give it more of a grassy look.  You have to take a look at the variety of options you could mix this images around, and the grass scene could be used for so much more.  I used my little butterfly punch to give some added bling and depth.  Thanks for looking,   next week I am doing a scrapbook layout with these images in a different look.

Scrapper's Delight January Project- Sign and Copic Combo book

Goodafternoon all.   I have been working on a couple projects.  This month Janice has made some great images, so check them out at www.scrappersdelight.com.  Her blog is http://scrappersdelightspapercrafts.blogspot.com/  My favorite is Honey.   You get 4 great images of her,  perfect for any card or layouts.   I have used her "head and torso"  to make me a book to make an example of all the copic combos.  We all like working with copics and it helps to know was blends well, and if your like me, you don't remember later what colors you used and loved or hate for that matter.  So this way I can go back and look at my book  to repeat my favorite colors.   I made a video and attaching some pictures.   Hope this inspires you.

By the way there is a challange going on the website,  you can join us and use some of the freebees or get some of these great images really cheap.  http://scrappersdelightspapercrafts.blogspot.com/2012/01/challenge-anything-goes-jan-2012.html#more
PS:   I made a sign to use in my videos as a design team member of scrappers delight,  I have included some examples of images I love on her site.   She has  several freebee stamps on her sight, so check them out for sure.

found christmas cards

I know it is almost valentines day,  but i am cleaning up some stuff on computer and thought I would post them. 

This card was extra base I had from prevoius cards.   I used a new digital image from La La Land, she is so pretty.   I also used the stamp and die cut from My Creative Time with Emma. 

 Of course I have loved all my Magnolia images this season,  love coloring her and used I Am Roses with some sprigs from the season micheals section.
 I recently gave in and bought Some Odd Girl images,  they really are great for coloring with copics,  lots of space to blend colors.  Need help with what to do with these type of eyeballs though.  Flwer given to me by Taya,  still can't seem to make them right. 
 Again my favorite stamps are from Magnolia,  just layered with a bunch of stuff.   Burned the edges of the burlap and really liked the effect.
 I always have to make my friend Susanna a sexy Mrs Clause for her to give to her boyfriend.   Thanks Kenny K for the images.
