Dont for get the giveaway on Friday

Just wanted to remind you , that I'm drawing for the giveaway on this Friday morning. Two sets of the not yet released "Sweet Chipboards" from Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage. (one boy set and one girl set) , and the tag that are sprayed each with a different color Glimmer Mist,and tied up with some vintage lace and a charm.

I have been wanted to scrap some of these photos of Neely (my niece) for so long... I finally got this one done last night. Wes(ds) took this photo , when the "Tilly's" were performing at South By SouthWest in TX. I love this girl!

The flower is one I hand drew and cut out with the exacto knife. Had fun, stitchin like a wild woman on this! lol
It was fun to do a layout.. for not reason. Sometimes I just have to do that to get my creative juices flowing again. Someone commented here a while back about my eclectic style. lol I have to laugh , because It's an issue I have.. I cant find a specific style.. I like so many.. I just do what I feel that moment. I love Vintage most... but "a little bit of Funk" is a must.. when I"m doing something of my own.


Okay... see what I mean? lol this is a 6x12 I did with Crafty Secrets Papers and stamps. This called for a completely different style, simply because of the photo. I do love 6x12 format so much. I love the fact that it's become more and more popular. The Crafty Secrets Paper Pads are all 6x12 size.. so the work so perfectly!


The papers from the "Radiant Paper Pad" are so beautiful! I just punched out these flowers , inked the edged slightly with pink and layered them.

The letters from the "Artsy Alphabet" stamp set, stamp so nice. I added the crown from the "Bird Notes" stamp set and then outline them all with a Sakura glitter pen.

I wanted to share with you girls who enjoy ATC's.. a link to this ATC birthday collection , I took part in. I showed my card here awhile back, but there are some amazing cards here on Nats blog, that all the girls sent in for Andrea for her Birthday. HERE (the first part is in German..so read below)
Also check out this "Create a Flower" Contest at ScrapScene. ( it was fun to see my Accordian flower tutorial posted there) There are so many cool flower tutorials listed.
It's been chilly and cloudy here again today..... "Dreary" ick! I NEED SOME SUNSHINE! I know I could never live somewhere where it's cloudy alot...because it starts to get to me! lol
I just realized this morning how fast it's coming up ..but a week from today, I leave for TX for the "Great American Scrapbook Show" to work with Crafty Secrets. Maybe I'm see some sunshine there??? Yippee!
Hope you are all having a happy day, and that the sun is shining on you!

PS. The brown and pink aprons below are now spoken for, but as of today the others are still available as of today.. if your interested.

Oh Vicki, I love your work. You have an incredible eye for detail. The colors, patterns and choice of layout are perfect. I love that eclectic style: Vintage/funk/Vicki.
Everything right down to the crown, it's just perfect.

Vickie said...

After finding your tutorial on scrapscene, I had to come visit. I like your other flowers too. I know what you mean about being eclectic. I have a hard time stickieng to a certain style. Great layouts.

I loved your flower tutorial! You made it seem so easy and I loved the button centers! They were sooooo beautiful!

Carol said...

Wowie, those pages are great! I love the 6x12 one and the stitched flower on the first one is amazing!!

doverdi said...

Love your layouts. The flower that you punched out is just stunning! Could I ask what punch you used to get that effect? I also like you hand drawn flower and have been attempting to add some of my own hand drawn additions to my layouts. I'm going to have to try flowers. lol

Oh man I just cannot come up with the right words - your work is so delicious!

Kara Ward said...

I just love looking at your work...I have been busy with the kiddos the past few days and I felt like I missed so much of your good stuff. I am loving the new music on the blog too. Kara

Love it, love it, love it! Am glad I don't have easy access to the American scrapbooking supplies!! I'd have to get a craft room then instead of storing all my paper upright on a bookcase (in 2 plastic files!!) Bet you can't do that!

HB said...

Maybe the reason you can't find a specific style, is cuz you are a style all unto your own! I could pick out one of your creations from across the room! Each and every one totally unique and yet with your signature all over it.

I love that handcut flower. It adds such detail. You also really have a great knack for photographing your work. I can almost "feel" the dimension in the photos.

thanks for all the great links!! :D

Amy said...

Just wanted to say that I appreciate all the close up shots that you do. I love seeing all those great textures in your work!

StaceyM said...

That stitching on Neely's layout is just amazing. Love how you did the flower!!! So cool. Of course, the 6x12 is just too precious. The papers go wonderfully with the picture. Girl, you just inspire me every day with your art work. Thank you!!!
