Greetings from Wonderland!

I can't wait to go see the new Alice in Wonderland movie, especially since Johnny Depp is in it. I just had to have this new stamp set "Greetings from Wonderland" by Crafty Secrets. There are so many great stamps in this set. The Alice & watch have been colored with my Prisma Markers, then cut out and covered with clear embossing powder. I used other small stamps from the set to create the background behind Alice. The patterned paper is A Shore Thing * Getting Hotter, Need Water, from Imaginisce. Alice was put on with 3d dots and I then stamped the Greetings from Wonderland on the side with Momento ink.

I also have to say a big Thank You to my Husband. He bought me 20 new Prisma Markers for our Anniversary last month. What a great present!!! He is the greatest Husband ever!!!

I have been doing some more work on my craft room. We had a garage sale at Scrap Arts last week end and I wanted to sell some old supplies. So I went through my craft room, I only planned on going through things and pulling out what I no longer wanted. I ended up rearranging half the room again. I did find lots to get rid of though. I'm feeling so inspired by this that I may continue the organizing this week. If I ever get it the way I want it, I will post photos. Well off to do some more work in my craft room.

Happy crafting everyone!

Happy St. Patrick's Day Everyone

Hope everyone has a wonderful St. Patrick's Day. I planned on making many cards for this occasion but only managed to get 1 done. I am so far behind right now.

I have been so busy at work the last couple of weeks I haven't been able to spend much time in my craft room. We are getting ready to move the store to a new location next month. So we have been deciding what goes and what doesn't and putting a bunch of stuff on sale. I have also been working some extra shifts.

This is another great card from the Child's Year cricut cartridge and I used the same method I used for the Easter Egg card in the previous post. I used moss green ultra fine glitter ritz glitter for the shamrocks and the swiss dots cuttlebug embossing folder for the white paper.
Happy Crafting everyone!


Easter Card Class

So I am way behind at getting this posted, nothing new there LOL. This is the Easter Card Class I am teaching at Scrap Arts. I have already taught the class once. If you are interested in taking this class you can contact Scrap Arts.

Two of the cards bases were actually cut out on the Cricut. The Child's Year cartridge is amazing, there are so many wonderful cards on it. The vanilla and brown Bunny card was cut out on the Cricut, I then covered a piece of brown card stock with sookwang double sided tape and attached it to the inside of the front panel and then added brown fun flock to the bunny die cuts. The same method was used for the Easter egg cut out card. I used the tape and a white piece of card stock for the inside and then used glitter ritz ultra fine glitter for the eggs.

The stamps on the Waterfall card, chick card and the gift bag are from the Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps Easter Set. The patterned paper on the Waterfall and Chick cards is from The Three Bugs in a Rug "Little Chick" line, I love the colors in these papers. So much fun for Spring. The papers used for the gift bag are Sprout, French Vanilla and the patterned paper is from Basic Grey Marrakech line.
