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!

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 =]

Make a Wish!

Good morning krafters! Today I am showing a card I did for the adorable blog Birthday Sundaes challenge #25 as well as the creative Alphabet Challenge Blog "P is for Pastel," and Pile It On's "B is for brads" challenge.

I made this card for one of close friends/my "sis" Tamika using the Sweet Treats cartridge (cupcake, "make a wish") and the Celebrate with Flourish cartridge for the "Happy Birthday."I also added the cute cupcake brads because she absolutely lovesss cupcakes! 

Hope everyone has a relaxing and Happy Labor Day!

Hello Kitty Hugs&Kisses

Hey Krafters! This is an S-Fold card I did using both the Hello Kitty and Hello Kitty Cartridges. I thought I'd send this over to my friend Morgan, who absolutely adores Hello Kitty (I do too! I think these cartridges are beyond cute). Oh! I also used the Wild Card Cartridge for the background on the inside. And then I had a ball with the embellishments! Ribbon, flowers, heart brads, and flower brads. I also used glitter on Hello Kitty's heart (the chunky glitter that comes in the tiny jars in various colors), so I will be entering this into Paper Craft Weekend Challenge's September product challenge: to use GLITTER! I also used a bit of yellow stickles for her nose.

Grandma's Card

Hey Krafters!

Today I'm uploading a project for the Cricut 360 Challenge #10: Grandparents, in honor of the upcoming Grandparents day.

My grandma recently had a birthday! She is my ANGEL and pretty much my favorite person in the world. She is now 85… and although her knees aren’t in the best shape anymore she still makes crazy moves. Still drives around everywhere (and no she doesn’t even drive a “grandma car”), she still travels alll the time, volunteers — basically she’s still about her business... love her! 

So I made a card with some of her favorite colors and added a few things she likes -- flowers and hearts. I also added a white strip on the right side to write her a nice little birthday message =]

Wishing everyone a safe and fun Labor Day weekend! Mwahh...keep krafting!
