I'm back!!!

I was in no way anticipating being gone for over 3 months!!!! My summer school class was 3 weeks at the end of May and beginning of June. I thought it was only 3 day for 3 hours a day it ended up being 3 days for 3 hours and 2 days for 2 hours but online so I not much crafting got done. My mom and I also share the craft room as part my craft room and part her office. Well she is now working at home full time and I majorly lost my crafting space during my prime crafting time. We also did a few rummage sales and used my crafting table for that and since no one really likes to clean up their crafting supplies I wasn't to keen on crafting until after that was all over. Well we finally figured out a solution (I get to take over the kitchen table for the summer then move back into the craft room/office for weekends during the school year.) After class was over I went to visit this guy.
For my 21st Birthday!!!!!! I am once again props designing for my local community theater's summer musical and helping out with their kids camp. So it will be crazy the next 3 weeks starting Saturday. So my goal is to either pre-write a few blog posts or just put out a bunch tomorrow and you can choose to read them when you want!!!  I want to start doing challenges again that's the only reason I might publish in mass rather then scheduling them out over a few weeks.

One last thing..... I'm thinking of doing a little blog special feature type thing over the school year stay tuned to find out more.

More Scrapbook Expo!

Hi Everyone! I've warped up another semester at school! I'm in for a busy summer so I'm not sure how often I'll be around but I'll try my best!!!! To start the summer off lets look at a few more scrapbook expo things.

My mom is going through a "frame" stage. So she picked this up for $2 at All That Scraps!
Now if you read my blog last year you know we bought one of these last year... However my mom told me somewhere along the line one of the tips must have gotten clogged or something because apparently it doesn't work any more...

I just want to warn that some of these pictures aren't the best... My camera has been acting up lately and I'm not quite sure what's going on.

These are the Sticks we picked up from Stamps By Judith
These were the Stubbies we bought.

and my mom got this basket.

While since my summer is so busy I'm gonna stop here so I have something to come back to if I get busy. I'm going to make some things to post about now!

1 Year!!!!

I'm still not the best blogger ever but. I still really enjoy sharing all the wonderful creations I make with all of you!

Anyways, I thought it would be nice to celebrate the 1st year anniversary of my blog the same way I started it. With all the stuff I got from this years SCRAPBOOK EXPO!!! At first I was going to try and do a video blog but I think I'm going to wait awhile longer until I start that. But onto the stuff you really want to see!

We left my house at about 8:00 this morning and we still manged to get there about 20 minutes before the show floor opened. I got home about 2 hours ago and I'm so tired but way to excited to share all my new stuff with you and start to play with it before I go back to school tomorrow. In fact... just so I have time to play I might make this a couple days of posts... I really just wanna play!!! Some of the pictures are not as good as others. I'm working on getting my new CRAFT ROOM together so I'm playing with lighting a bit.
These are Frame Stamps that we got from the Scrap That booth they only cost $2
These are the new copic markers I got from ScrapMart I also got a bunch of spellbinders dies from them they had a special where you got 10 or more markers and they cost on $4.75 a marker! And they had a spellbinders deal buy 3 get on free!

So I think I'm gonna leave it there and go play with my new toys for awhile. I'll either put up more later or I might talk about it as I use it! ;)

Happy Birthday Purple Elephent

Spring Flower Card

I'm going to have a little bit of a series going on here for awhile. With lots of flower cards!!

Here's the first one. The stamp is from The Stamping Boutique and is a prize from my one and only challenge win! :) The paper is from The Paper studio the Rivbiom is white ribbon I'm sure I bought at Jo Ann Fabrics quite sometime ago that I then collided with my R23 (I think...) Copic marker to make match. I'm not sure where the bling is from...

Picnic Basket

Hi everybody I'm back! I've had this card sitting around waiting to be published for awhile so I figured I start off with it!

First the suplies list:
Stamp: Picnic Basket The Stamping Boutique
Paper: The Paper Studio
Ink: Copic Markers and Memento Sky Blue Dye Ink
Accessories: White Ribbon and pink metal dots

Did you see what I did there?
I said white ribbon.
There's no white ribbon on that card.  
That's because it was white ribbon but I colored it with my Copic markers to make it pink so it matched. I don't usually think of stuff like that so I was kind of proud of myself. To make the background on the image I used the chisel end of my green Copic Markers for the grass I just layer all 3 grassy colors that I have.
To make the sky I used a sponge dauber and Memento Sky Blue Dye Ink and just brushed it around.

My Crafty Space

It's a mess!!!! I haven't been crafting much lately unfortunately... Hopefully I'll be getting some more time soon. So I thought I'd share this picture of my crafty space which is really just my dining room table... It's a mess and that's about all I have to say about it... You can see a few of the cards I've started working on and hopefully they will be able to post those soon. So far I haven't made much head way on any of 2013 goals... Except for looking in to a few design teams... I have defiantly bought way more stuff then I've used so far this year.

My First Real Post of 2013!!!!

Hey Everyone!

I'm really sorry about my not so great updates as of late. I made all those cards in 2 days and really just wanted to get them up here to show off! Anyway I officially start school again tomorrow so I'm going to try to update a little more. (What can I say blogging is a good procrastination tool (:  ) But obviously with  school comes less time to actually make cards.So I thought I'd maybe do some "wordy" posts. I'm going to keep it all crafty related and I'll still sprinkle in cards as often as I can. But I do want some input from you leave a message in the comment box with any suggestions for these filler posts. They can be questions about something I've done or my personal crafty style. They can be about anything crafty really! After I get a few suggestions I'll make a new page at the top of my blog with questions and ideas. And maybe the next part of my post will spark some ideas!

This post is inspired by this post over at SCS. I thought I would make my first official post of 2013 about my crafty goals.
1. Use up my stuff!!! I have 5 boxes of paper and 1 and half dresser drawers filled of paper! True 3 of the boxes are themed (Fall, Holiday and Disney) but still the stuff needs to get used! My goal is to have a good chunk of it used up by April when the Scrapbook Expo comes back to my area.
2. Make an inspiration binder. I thought it would be kind of fun to make a binder with all kinds of sketches and tutorials to keep with my crafty stuff.
3. Keep learning and improving my cards. I feel like most of cards are pretty straight forward right now I want to keep learning new techniques and push myself to try more unique things.
4. Start looking into DTs. I don't think I'm up for doing a company design team but I always though it would be fun to be on a DT for a challenge blog. I'm still in college for about another 2 years so it might be awhile before I have the time to join one. But it never hurts to start looking at them. Maybe I'll get lucky and be able to find one I can do now.
5. Submit to some publications. It's another thing I've always wanted to do but never have. Can't hurt to try can it.
6. Send Cards!!!!!

So there are my 2013 crafty goals! Feel free to share yours in the comments!
