I'm still here!

With school starting in a week or so, I'm going shopping with my mom, meeting some new friends ( I'm going to a new school!), and trying to have as much fun as I can before I gotta wake up early, head to the school bus, and learn learn learn! I don't think I'll be posting much for a while cause I usually take some time to get used to it!

I've stuffed some time in to craft and I made some stuff!

This little tag has paper for Making Memories 'whimsy' collection, kraft, and a brown marker!

This next "postcard" thing was made for the sketch challenge at 2 Sketches 4 You but didn't have time to post! I drew the party girls and colored everything so no patterned paper on this one! This only stamp I used was the party sentiment from Studio G.

No challenges this time but still lots of fun!

Have a fabulous day!

Still Just Another Post!

 ***See below for Challenge 5!***


How's it g-g-g-g-oing????? Here's a few cards I made:

I used black and white cardstock, I drew the cake, and some green ribbon.
I'm entering this one at the challenge over at 2 Sketches 4 You!

For this next one, it's not really a card but more of a tag, (I'm making more and more of these for some reason!?)I used kraft, DP from Making Memories, and the Martha Stewart 'doily lace' punch.
 Challenge for this one is the EBTKS challenge- sketch

Keeping this quick! See ya soon!!

Just Another Post!

Hey everyone!!

I made this box the other day and was wondering, how should I close it? I was thinking about a ribbon handle but didn't have a wide enough ribbon for a brad. Any suggestions??

The box is made of white card stock and I just stamped a background with a Studio G stamp in gray and cut and scored it! The box was 7 inches wide by 4 1/2 inches tall. Here's a great tutorial on how to make it but with different dimensions and I didn't punch the hole. I colored in the ice creams from Lauretta's. Then I tied some ribbon to the front and tied a bow! I adhered it all together and added some glitter the ice creams.

Have an awesome day!!

A tag and some pictures!!!

Hey y'all!

With school almost starting, I didn't have much time to craft. That, and we went on some little trips around WA to celebrate the lasts of summer. Here in Seattle, it's still feeling like spring. It rains, it's cold, and only on some days is it warm at all!! Well on to the tag.

 Sometimes you want something to put on a gift but didn't want to make a card cause that might take a while? Well, I was short on time, so...... I made a tag!!!!

I used red card stock. some thin green ribbon, and a fab image by Glitterbabe!!! I colored her in with a blender pen (just got one and I'm so excited to use it again!!) and put her on the card stock. I then rapped the ribbon around and tied a bow! I also just got a new Martha Stewart edge punch and I think it's called 'doily lace'.
Meljen's Design- Clean & Simple

I also found this fab site called Living in Paradise. She's having a blogiversary treasure hunt! She asks us to take a picture of what she tells us and it's different for all 6 candies!

I picked some that I could do right away.
