Blog Challenge #1

Ok, so here is my first of several blog challenges by Melisa! She picked 2 stamp sets and those particpatings are posting their creations and then she is compiling a list so we can see everyones ideas! (All the links are posted at the bottom of this post!) Great idea Melisa!

Here is my card:

I used Snowman Nativity. It is such a cute set...(thank you Melisa for sending it to me!) I colored in the image with Lyra Aquacolor crayons and the Dove blender. The background stamp is from Salsa flowers. (I always forget about that little stamp! It makes such cute backgrounds when you use Versamark.)

Super simple card to make! Thanks for looking!

Now here are everyone elses blogs that you can go to and check out their designs using Snowman Navity and Ornamental Snowflakes!

Heather's Monday Sketch

Here I am for another of Heather's Monday Sketch....

Here is the card! I love the October Stamp of the Month! It is sooo cute! Lots of possiblities with this one!

Thanks for looking!


Altered Frame

I am not really good at altering things, but I thought I would give it a shot! My friend Jennifer is great at altering things! So I guess you could say, I thought of her and had to give it a shot!

I got this frame forever ago at Michael's in Fort Collins. I think I paid a dollar for it? I know it was cheap!
I used Reece paper to cover the front, after spray painting the whole thing a tanish color. I used one of the stamps from the Level A set, Laughter for the sentiment on the tag. I added red ribbon and eyelets on the tag.

A fun project! Maybe I will have to try it again sometime!


New Layout

Brody is now 10 weeks old and I haven't even started his scrapbook yet! So, I had to jump in! It is not like I haven't taken a million pics already but now that I have 2 little ones it is alot harder to find time to scrapbook!

So here is his first layout! Of course I had to make one for him and Rylee! I thought it was a cute one so I had to post it! I didn't use any stamps this time but look for more in the future to have lots of stamping!

I used my Fiskars cloud scissors for the scalloped edge and then the large hole punch on my Crop-O-Dile for the edge! I cut out stars from a patterned paper and then tied string thru the buttons and attached them with adhesive!

My new favorite adhesive, by the way, is Dot-N-Roller by Kokuyo. I heard about it on a blog that I had come upon and had to check into it! This is what it looks like...

Then how surprised was I to see that it is in my own Angel Company catalog!! So I had to put in an order! I can't believe that one slipped by me! So, if you are looking for a new adhesive, let me tell you that this one is the best! And I can get it for you! The refills are also available! Email me at llwillison@hotmail.com with questions or to place an order!


More Christmas Cards......

Here are just a few more cards I have been working on! I can't decide which ones to use for the upcoming Stamp-A-Stack but I am sure I will narrow it down!

Here is one card I made using the snowflakes set from TAC....

This card used "Merry Christmas" from one of our Level A Hostess Sets! Host a FunShop or have a book party, have $100 in sales and receive 2! Level A sets and 2! Half Price Items!! until November 3rd!!

Can you tell I love ribbon? Well, incase you couldn't tell.......I DO!!!


Heather's Monday Sketch

Another cute sketch! I had to play!
This time I used TAC Linear Sentiments! It is such a cute set with lots of possibilites! Here is my version!


One more Stamp-A-Stack idea...

Here is another card I made for the Stamp-A-Stack. It is a simple, quick and easy one but I think it turned out really cute!

This card I used "Ordinary Occasions" (TAC) and the Cuttlebug for embossing! Just another card I wanted to share! Hope you are having a great day!


Christmas is in the air....

It is finally "chilly" outside today here in Kansas! It has been so warm for so long that I was about to give up and move back to Colorado! Yeah right....Sorry Steph! (I wish!)

So, with the weather change, it got me in the mood to make some Christmas Cards. Well, that and I am having a Christmas Stamp-A-Stack and so I had to start coming up with some ideas! :)

Here are several cards that I made today!

This first one is my version of a "Rustic Santa". I used Everyday Greetings from TAC, colored him in with Watercolors and the dove blender. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the card to make it look a little more "rustic"!

Also a couple of different Noel cards.........

And one using the Holiday Magic set......

Of course I had to make a "Merry Christmas" one too!

Let me know which one you like best! For all of the girls who are coming to the Stamp-A-Stack, email me your favorites and I will make sure those are the ones we make! I will post more later! Thanks for looking!


Heather's Monday Sketch

Ok, I am back for week two! The last sketch was my first ever and now I am hooked! It gives me the creativity bug for the week! Thanks Heather! Here is her sketch....

I used her sketch...just changed the horizontal to vertical! :)

I used Love Doodles (TAC) for the sentiment and Love and Laughter (TAC) for the flourish! I love the paper! It is called Reece from The Angel Company, as well!

I cut 2 slots in the background paper to weave the 1 x 4 1/3 strip through. Attached eyelets and a little ribbon and pop dots behind the sentiment! I love this sketch! I might have to use this one for a Christmas Stamp-a-Stack!


Scor-Pal Accordian Fold Card Challenge

Here is an Accordian Fold Card that I made for my Scor-Pal group challenge. I absolutley love this tool. I use it for all my cards and even some on scrapbook pages!

Here is a close up of the stamping. I used the Give Thanks set from TAC!

This was a very simple and fun card to make!


KWernerDesign Color Challenge #24

I am double posing again, just so you know! :)

Here is my first Color Challenge for Kristina's blog! Her blog is amazing and I love to watch her "how to" videos! So I had to make a card! I love these colors and it gets me so in the mood for fall!

So here is my hand at Color Inspiration #24!

I love this set from TAC! You can't tell but the butterflies are sparkley! This was alot of fun to do!

Fun New Punch

I never thought I would buy anything Martha Stewart. Until I saw this punch!

I had to have it! So I looked all over the internet to find the best price.....and then I went to Walmart! Instant gratification! Love it!

So of course I had to make a card! And I made this one! A birthday card for my SIL.
So simple and so cute!

I used Kraft paper, and the Ordinay Greetings set from TAC for the sentiment! I also used my Scor-Pal for the scored lines above the punch! Hope you like it!
