A peek at a card set

Here's a quick sneak of a card set I am working on. This isn't for the faint of heart!! These have a bit if a learning curve and take time and patients but it's so worth it. They are turning out beautiful.

This week

This week there hasn't been much time to get much crafting done. Instead, I have been focusing on getting more of my craft boxes unpacked and organized which is proving to be a challenge. To make this task even more challenging try adding in a very high maintenance 2 year old that LOVES everything to do with crafts. I have gotten 3 big boxes unpacked this week and hope to actually dig into some ink pads, stamps, and cards tomorrow if all goes well. I have ordered the new Mini Misti and should get it this Friday. I am really excited about it. Check out the link to see what it is. I have dreams that this will speed up my stamping and creating time. We will see! So, for tonight that is it from this home. Happy crafting dreams, my friends.

Lesson #5 Window Frame

Lesson number 5 is perfect for my summer card. The example that was used in class was cupcakes and since I didn't have that stamp set I substituted that one I DID have. I have had this one for almost or over a year and hadn't touched it, like so many stamps that I have. I had fun creating this one although it took most of the morning do complete due to 3 kids. Have a cupcake of a day!

Shaker Card Lesson #6

Yes, I am doing some skipping around on my homework. This is lesson #6 and is the shaker card for the class I am taking at Altenew Academy with Nichol Magouirk. Shaker items were really popular when I started scrapbooking a long time ago. I actually taught some classes on how to make shaker cards...LOL I think that is why this homework assignment was so easy for me. I used Close to My Heart stamps, because that is what I have the most of, combined with ink pads and water pen to color with. I used dollar store sequins for the inside of the shaker. I really like how this one turned out!

Scene Card Lesson #1

I am currently taking a stamping class at Altanew Academy  to learn how to utilize my stamps in a better way. Lord knows I need it with all of them that I have! The teacher is Nichol Magouirk and she is wonderful. I am learning a lot of new things. I have finally used this stamp set, which I have had for at least 2 years. I am still not 100% happy with my alcohol markers but it is getting there and that's what it is all about!

Hopping into spring

Spring is on its way and with the way my crafting time has been, I decided I better get on it. I saw this idea years ago and always wanted to do it but never got to it. I saw the supplies at Dollar Tree and decided to just do it! Today the roofers were here so I had time to actually create this cute bunny wreath for $4.00. I still need to decorate him but at least he is put together (i don't like the ribbon nor is it long enough so it will be redone)!! The best part is the price!!
