My New Etsy Shop

I'm just setting up my Etsy shop! There will plenty more listings to come!

Little Boxes of Love

Hey Krafters! 
It's Kristen here, hoping everyone had a lovely Christmas and wishing my bloggers an amazing New Year! 

Here are two explosion boxes I've done. The first one is from a set I made to give away/sell; I set one aside to fill with lots of fun memories I had with my friends in the past several years, mostly during my high school days.
The second is one I made for one of my college friends to give to his girlfriend on her birthday. (How sweet of him, right?) She loved it!

Hey Krafters!

This is a birthday card I did for my roommate! [Usually when I'm doing a card, I go ahead and make a couple extra]. It's really simple, but cute! The card base is 8" by 9". The 3 boxes are 2.5" by 2.75" with inked edges.
I used 4 different stamps -- the top two are from a Birthday stamp set, the "cheers" was sold as a separate in the Michael's $1 bin, and the leopard print came from an animal print stamp set.
I topped it off with ribbons, brads, and a touch of stickles. Hope ya like!

Hello darling krafters....

School has really started to kick up so unfortunately I don't have as much time to blog and scrap these days, but I try to get on whenever I have some free time to comment. I always have sooo much homework but I still make some cards here and there. =] 

Recently, I made these "Celebrate" cards

They can be used for birthdays, promotions or any special occasion under the sun! My mom bought several new colors of Copic markers and some cute stamps, so I wanted to try them out! I just love this color combination so much. 

I'm entering this in at My Craft Spot for the ribbon challenge! Her designers' inspiration pieces are really amazing.

I am also linking up at You Had Me At Craft, of course!

Hopefully my teachers don't keep me too bogged down with studying so I won't be gone for too long ;-]

Keep Krafting!

My mom has already taken advantage of this sale and stacked up on more stacks! Guess that means we have a LOT of krafting to do!

Helloooo lovely krafters!

These are two little coordinating birdy cards for no particular reason!
One is a birthday card and the other is simply an inspiration card.

I can't remember what cartridge I used for the birds or what stack the paper is from (if you recognize anything, please, let me know!). Just simply showing two recent cards that I have done.

When I don't write down my procedures and recipes while I'm working I just forget.. soo many things I have to keep up with now that I'm working and in school! Being away from home causes me to be away from most of my krafting supplies, but I still try to fit in some krafting while I'm here at my school apartment! Can't stay away for too long...

I am linking this up on You Had Me at Craft and Crafty Boots Challenges for their first challenge: anything goes!

Til next time, keep krafting! =]

Hi Krafters! I'm here for another challenge...The Creative Cutter Room is hosting a sports themed challenge. My FAVORITE sport to watch is football, and I am soooo excited for the NFL season to start on Sunday!

I am also excited for my school's football team...We just beat the Miami Hurricanes in our season opener this past Monday...Whooo, go Terps!!

My personal favorite professional team is the Pittsburgh Steelers. (Black and Yellow for life!). However, since I was born and raised in Redskins nation I also have love for my home team. With that being said, I decided to do a football themed card for a Redskins fan. (Hence the burgundy and gold.)

This is a modified easel style card that I made with the Sports Mania cartridge. I would love to do a little tweaking to this card and make more in the future (in black and yellow!), but I thought this was nice for my first time trying this style. 

I'm also linking this card up to Scrapalicious and Patches of Pink because they are both hosting fall-themed challenges/link-up parties.. When I think of the fall, I immediately think football season, so I think it should fit in! 

Enjoy =]
