It's getting kinda hectic...

I continue to make craft purchases even though I have a hard time keeping what I already own, in order. I know, shame on me ... the most recent purchases are in the bottom two photos.

Pink is the new pink!

I have more than my share of pink craft supplies: buttons, paper, flowers, brads, eyelets and ribbon. The ribbon is plentiful, like more than 20 spools ranging from gingham to grossgain to satin to ric rac; there's polka dot satin and polka dot sheer; then there's thick and then. I love that pink ribbon.

Then I stopped by the local LLS, Expression Connection. Just when I was about to leave empty handed, I saw some cardstock. Not the usual kind either. It was the new bling line from Bazzill. Oooooh, so good lookin. I got some in every flavor they had - and it happened to be in the pink scheme. The cards here are made with bling, though it may truly visible how cute this paper is - take my word for it. Here are some of the other products used:

cardstock: Bazzill; patterned paper: KI Memories; embossing folders: ProvoCraft's Cuttlebug; flowers: Prima; brads: Bazzill; beads: craft supply ; sequin: Hero Arts; ribbon: Joanns and Michaels; rub-ons: Amercian Crafts.

Thanks for viewing my passion for crafts.

$1 Target Mailbox-Decorated

This project was so fun! I saw on that some crafters were altering these cuties. So when I saw them at Target, I scooped up about 10! I have an order for three already. I'll get to work on those in the next few days.

For this one, I used lots and lots of embellishments - I think that's what gives it character. The paper is Paper Salon. Enjoy!

Seeing red ...

I'm trying to make some cards to send out to family and friends. I might even sell some ...

Card Crazy!

I took some time away from work to craft these cuties! The design is based on one I saw in an idea book called Card Fashion.

Here is what I used:
Pattern paper: Crate Paper New Garden Collection
Ribbon: American Crafts and craft supply
Circle punches: EK Success and Quickutz
Ink: VersaMagic
Stamps: Hero Arts
Bazzill brad and chipboard
Quickutz embossing and flower die cut

Here's another one!

I like this, but it seems too busy. As I was making it, I noticed that I have lots of brown and blue ribbon. Expect more from this color scheme.

This was too meticulous - putting the presents together. I like the circle concept - I read about it on the Two Peas in a Bucket board.

I used the Quickutz shape dies for the presents and some circles too; EK Success circle punches; Making Memories and Gin X pattern paper; American Crafts ribbon; Die Cuts with a View cardstock and craft supply; Hero Arts stamp; VersaMagic ink.
