Weight lifting anyone?

Not for me!  But by the smile on her face, Barbella loves it!  Don’t you just love those Bella stamps?  This card was made for The Paper World’s sketch.  Isn’t it a cute layout?  I loved making it!  Except for the CTMH green eyelets, the rest of the products are from a scrap kit from K&Company I received as a gift.  I love the colors.  The little flower is 3-D and really stands out nicely.  I might have to try making a 3-D flower sometime.  It just requires a lot of cutting but with my new CTMH micro-tip scissors, it shouldn’t be too hard!

Circle Journal on it’s way again!

I sent another circle journal on its way today.  This journal is Andrea’s and it’s all about color.   Not only did Andrea organize our circle journal adventure, she made a beautiful journal.   My first page is used with my favorite CTMH paper of all time - Stylin.  I also used a piece of CTMH pink gingham paper from years ago! 


 I used Basic Grey’s Blush for this page.  I am NOT a morning person, so Grumpabella is totally me:  with a frown on my face, wearing a pink robe, pink slippers and a mocha in my hand!  I don’t even like to talk in the morning, much less get out of bed!  I love the pink loop brads I got from Oriental Trading Co. as an added touch to string the ribbon through.  I added some miscellaneous silk flowers - in pinks, of course!  I used CTMH Bubblegum marker to color the chipboard initial “A”.  And the final accessory was the pink thongs - which is what I would prefer to wear every day - on a beach somewhere!  Yeah, I know - wishful thinking!


Flower Power

I’m so glad it’s Thursday not only because tomorrow is Friday and the end of the work week, but also because Survivor is on tonight!  WOOHOO!  My Time To Craft’s challenge this week was flowers.  This card is very different from what I would normally make.   All the products were from a scrapbook kit I bought at Costco.

Bella’s back!  I haven’t played with a Bella in awhile so decided it was time.  I made this card for Moralia’s Weblog sketch challenge.  The products I used were CTMH Colors of Spring paper; Bubblegum ink and gold brads.  I also used SU’s round tab punch.  I threw in some white buttons for accents!


Spring is in the air - Tilda style!

When I received P.I.F. “candy” from Ying in Malaysia, she sent along stamped images of one of the Tilda’s.  I just love the Magnolia stamps and I couldn’t wait to play with a new one!  I just ordered some more but it always takes a few weeks to get here from Europe.  For Tilda & Co.’s spring challenge, the products I used were:  CTMH Colors of Spring paper and Bubblegum ink.  The three little pink flowers and the green mushroom were also sent by Ying!  I also used Cotton Candy Stickles on the angel wings.

Thank You

This little card I made for Sketches {by tamara}.  I had already picked out the stamp set I wanted to use when I chose this sketch.  I downsized the card to a 3″ x 3″ so the stamps would fit with the size of the card.  It’s not quite an ATC, but close!  I used CTMH products:  Elegant Bouquet paper; Random Thoughts stamp set; cranberry ink; holiday collection designer ribbon; brads; and Heritage edge anchor.


For You, and P.I.F.

Don’t forget to check out my P.I.F.  It’s one post down.

In My Stamp Room had a fun Thursday sketch challenge this week.  I decided to step away from my normal pink and go with blue and brown!  There isn’t one little bit of pink on this card!  I used only CTMH products:  Serendipity paper; Serendipity and Spunky Greetings stamp sets; chocolate and outdoor denim brads; twilight designer ribbon; chocolate and outdoor denim inks; and waxy flax.
