Mini Book!


I've been kinda at a lose with mojo in card making for the part few months. School is alright. 😃

For something new, I tried making a December book. At the end of 2012, I want to end it on a good note, and I think getting my mojo is a good one!

I've tried making minis before and failed every time! I think the reason why I'm loving this so much is because I took out almost all embellishments.

Embellishing is fun on cards but for a mini, it's like embellishing like, 20 cards!! Way too much for me so simple is amazing!

That's all I have so far. If you have any Qs for supplies, ask in the comments!

 Happy Holidays!

Simple Office Supplies

Hi there!

I can't believe I haven't posted in two weeks! Gah!

Today I made two cards that are super simple! I needed to make a card set for someone who works really hard!

I'm thinking about adding another card to this set 'cause I tend to like odd numbers. :) I drew the first things that I think of when I think of office supplies. I used a ruler and it looks awesomer!

This works for the anything goes challenge at The Crazy Challenge and Send A Smile 4 Kids.

Have a great day!

MSS Fourteen: Heart Chickies

Hello there!

With all the spare time I had this week along with my mojo, I've cranked out a few cards like lightning. Although lighting almost never sticks twice. :)

This card is super simple- I love those hearts that I added wings and legs to to make them chicks! Misted the background and that's all!

This card goes for the Anything Goes challenge at Avadares Challenge Blog

Have a great day!

MSS Thirteen: keep in touch rainbow.


I'm feeling on a roll this week with all these cards! I have another one to share with you. Oh, and, did you know this was my 150th post? Oh yeah :)

 This one took forever to make! I water-colored a rainbow onto a white card base then took another piece of card stock and cut some slits into it. Then I added a banner, a sentiment, and heart. I also added dots of glitter here and there. I really like this one, especially in the light that this photo does not do justice!

This card is for the kid's challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and the white challenge at Catered Crop!

Have a great day!

A Cupcake Just for You

 Hello wonderful people!

I have a card once again to share with you and I was inspired by two things...
One- this layout that inspired the sketch that got the ball rolling..

and Two- this card of mine that I adore and inspired the main image.

I tried replicating that cupcake and I think I did okay!  The papers are all scraps but I'm pretty sure the vintage papers are Tim Holtz and the brights are Making Memories/Authentique.

And that arrow. Oh that arrow! Got it on my first try and love it. I've been seeing arrows all over the paper world too.

This card goes into the Anything Goes challenge (and kid's challenge)at Simon Says Stamp.

Hope you all have the best day ever!

MSS Number Twelve

Hi there!

This week has been filled with parties. Birthday parties and reunion parties. :)

Yesterday, at one of those parties (which was at my house-had to do some cleaning before they arrived) I made something.

I made some new friends and met with some old friends. All over a game (about thirty) of Super Mario Bros. Brawl. I was Kirby (the third from the left that's all out of lives.) of course...*cough cough* you didn't know about that? Well now you do. :)

I hope your week has been amazing or at least better! Have a great day!

Hope you have an amazing week and see ya on Sunday!

MSS Number Eleven

Hey there!

It's been a fun week at my house! A friend is staying here and he has an adorable 6 year old son! I hope your week has been fun as well!

Anyhow, for this week's MSS, I want to share with you something that my friend gave me.

My friend came back from Taiwan and gave me this fun notebook and some other cute goodies! So, the cover doesn't really sense but I still love it! I am starting to use this notebook for ideas and everyday to do lists. And what's amazing, the cover (made out of cardstock) always falls flat no matter how many times you open it. :)

Hope you had a fun week!

MSS Number Ten


The sun has been shining a lot more around here except for the occasional thunderstorm. :) hope it gets warmer where you are! (unless it's crazy hot already)

For this week's project, I altered a post-it book (a spiral bound book of post-its of different sizes) I got a while back. The cover looked kinda bland so I added some paint and paper.

Had a lot fun with on this project and hope I can make more creations to share with you!

Have a great week!

Frogs Think On a Cloud


Hope you've all had a great week!

Yesterday, I had some mojo back and felt like doing some coloring. So, I made the middle wood-thing panel and then got stuck. I liked all the colors but didn't have any papers that went well so I slept on it. Then, this morning I chose a paper and finished the card!

I must say though, I kinda don't like this card a whole lot. It's okay in my book but definitely not one of my favorites.

This ain't (whenever I say or type that word, it's always in southern accent in my head) for any challenges cause it was for fun, fun, fun.

Have a great week y'all! (there' that southern voice in my head again!) ;)

MSS Number Nine

Hope you all had a wonderful forth of July for those of you who celebrate it! For my family, today was the first weekday that both my parents stayed home. And since we got some bamboo for our backyard, we did some digging and planting!

We still went to see the fireworks although we could see some from our house too!

Remember those little plants I got in a previous MSS? Well I planted those two plants (duh)! Got that cute little pot too!

Hope you have a great week!

Purple Thinking of You


Summer has started around here and so far, nothing has happened. But we do have some road trips planned! Hope your summer is fun so far!

I got some inspiration from Jen McGuire and I CASed one of her cards! The purple and blue are watercolors, inks, and colored pencils. Pretty simple but really fun!

This card goes for Party Time Tuesday's and Tammy's Scrapin Corner's Anything Goes challenge.

Hope you have a great weekend!

MSS Number Eight

Hey gals!

Sorry I haven't been posting weekly cards! But I'm still keeping up with MSS! :)

This Friday was my last day of school! Ah! It went so fast and that day was also my friend's birthday! I filled a two- liter bottle with a card, a birthday banner, and other small items and I then added tissue paper and some ribbon!

I plan on visiting her house while she's on vacation and put it in her mailbox! (if it can fit) :)

Make sure to leave a comment with something you made today or this week!

Hope you have an amazing week! I have an orthodontics appointment on Monday! :)

MSS Number Seven

Hey guys!

So this week, in science class, we made rockets out of soda bottles and once I was done, I decided to fill it with goodies for my friend's birthday!

I made this to put onto a mini card to include in the bottle. Omg is something we say a lot so I thought it would be appropriate! I might show you guys the final product if I have time!

If you made anything and shared it today or throughout this week, please leave a link to it the comments below!

Have a happy Father's Day!

MSS Number Six


This week's MSS showcases my obsession with watercolors! Ah!

So I stamped an image from Purple Onion Designs three times. The first one was stamped in black ink and colored with colored pencils. The second is stamped with purple ink an colored with a paint brush and ink pressed onto an acrylic block. For the last one, I used this technique using watercolors!

I love these cute little buildings! Make sure to post a comment with a link to something you made today or this week!

Thanks for joining me!

Hello Owl

Happy Saturday!

Today was a very exciting day! There are four levels of orchestra at my school and this year I was in the second highest! Our teacher told us that she would post ' the list' of who was where today. So, this morning I rushed to her class to see if she had posted the list yet. Turns out she posts news in the afternoons. And so, my friends and I spent the entire day panicking about which orchestra we got into!

But anyhow, today I found some inspiration from the decorations at a class party we also had today! Yep, today was an exciting day!

This card is pretty self-explanatory, I mainly used watercolors to color everything. Made this card under twenty minutes which is record for me!

I'm entering this card into these challenges:

Hope you have a great day!

MSS Number Five


Today, my mom and I went to a friend's house to pick some flowers and we got to pick some of these:

But for something I made, I made a little decoration/arrangement of the gorgeous flowers they had!

Hope you have an amazing day and post something you made today or your favorite from this week that you made!

MSS Number Four

Hey hey!

Sorry this week's MSS is kinda late! My family had a party with some of our friends and I got a cat-sitting job this summer!

This week, it was my friend's birthday so along with her present (and a card of course!) I made a little plushie toy!

She thought it was adorable and I do too!

Thanks for joining me this week and don't forget to comment with a link if you made anything today!
