Oh happy day!

Don't forget I'll be drawing for the ScrapMuse kit giveaway on Monday!! Read about it HERE


I did some serious playing with Glimmer Mist today, and my Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps.
These were just plain white silk flowers. I had a bunch of them , that my cousin Paula had given me after Cody and Tammy's wedding.
I made these pins I thought we could wear on our aprons for Memory Trends. They were really fun to do. I realized you could get some really cool different color effects, by spritzing the next color while the first was still wet, so that they would really blend.
To get the darker colors on the tips, I spritzed the darker color on to a piece of wax paper, turned my flower upside down, holding onto the pin back , and just let the tips touch the ink... twirling it a bit , to catch all the tips.
I hot glued a button in the center and a pin back , on the back. The little word pennants are Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage stamps, (from the Kewpie Set).
I inked the edges of the pennant's with different colors of Colorbox cateye inks.


I have to show you some of the new PageFrame Shapes! I got a box in the mail today.. and it's got lots of fun new shapes in it. I cant wait to work with them.









Here are just a few. They all still have the protective cover on them.. so I know they are kind of hard to see here.. but I don't want to take it of them, until I'm ready to use them. Hope you can see them well enough. I'm sure they'll be up on the PageFrames website soon.






Love the Scallop's on the circle and the square , a bunch!




I want to play with these right now... grrr... I wish there were more hours in the day!!!

I've been loving reading what everyone has been posting , is their "cant live without" scrapbooking/crafting/stamping tool. I think I might have to get myself some of those Mrs Grossmans tweezers, you guys are talking about!

I have used glimmer mist on flowers but I like how you inked the edges. It makes them more realistic. You always make everything perfect! I leave at 7am tomorrow so see ya' in Vegas! If I win your kit you have my number. hee hee
