Make It Monday #41: Essential Glue Pad Tips

Wow my make it Monday is actually on Monday for once! This Papertrey Ink challenge was to use glitter, flock, or Perfect Pearls with an Essential Glue Pad. I made several attempts before I was happy with the results. Glue pads seem to be a little finicky. I think this tag looks so pretty on this Kraft wrapped package. I also added the handmade frosted pine cones and glittered fern clothes pins. I really love how the tag turned out and I think I will be using this technique more. Thanks for stopping by!

Card Challange

I made this card for the Embellish Magazine. It was really a hard one for me because I hate the colors! But its good to craft outside your comfort zone. By the way I'm in love with Pinterest! Are you? You can find me HERE. I bought a waffle iron, new crockpot, and I'm desperately wanting a baby and puppy all because of Pinterest!

Holiday Shop Update

I finally listed some Holiday items in my shop!

Vintage Style Mica Snow

Here is a card I made with some of the supplies.
The card stock and sentiment stamp are from Papertrey Ink and the patterned paper is from The Paper Studio -Holly Jolly. The pink paper is PTIs new Autumn Rose. It matched perfectly!

Make It Monday #39: Multi-stamp Background Building

This is my card for the Make it Monday Challenge. I used Tag Its # 8 for the background paper. Such a great little stamp set for only $5.00! All the paper is Papertrey Ink too.

What!? Its November!?

I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween! Ours was superb! I must say however I am ecstatic it is over! Halloween is the busiest time in my shop. I start on it in the early summer. So as you can image I am SO over it. I'm late with my Christmas holiday items as usual but I will start listing them very soon! This year besides my Banners, cards, and tags I have lots of handmade supplies perfect for card making, scrapbooking, and gift embellishing. I am only offering a limited quantity this year. I really want to have time to enjoy the season and my family. I will leave you with a few peeks
