Memory Keeper - Felicity Papers from CTMH

Love, love, love this paper! Too bad availability is over tomorrow! I made this at the request of some friends who plan on doing the same! I had fun trying to figure this one out...wrote down all the measurements for my peeps! =)

Now I can finally take all my cards out of the drawer they are STUFFED in!
Thanks for taking a look -- happy crafting!
PS -- I must have missed the notice that the formatting for posting blogs idea how this will look when I'm done! :o)

More cards from the crop

Here are a few more pictures from the 29-hour party!
This one is with the new Love Birds stamp from Close To My Heart (CTMH). I used the Cricut Accent Essentials for the card base, Nestabilities scallops and circles for the layers. The birds were stamped in black, then stamped again on patterned paper, and I cut the body out for color.

This next card is super easy. I used the Cricut again, with the Wild Card cartridge. The stamp is also a CTMH stamp, In The Month Of February. All paper/cardstock is from CTMH.

And here is a picture of the goodie bags I made for everyone, and a close up of the little flower monogram tag. Again, all it for Christmas, and just learned how to use it! (In case that wasn't obvious!) *grin*

I apologize for such poor photos. I actually have a really nice camera, but no way to get good lighting. I'm researching photo/light cubes. Think I'll try making one and see how that works! My last post, with a birthday card didn't show any of the "glitter pen" detail...and that was the final straw! LOL
As always, thanks so much for stopping by!

29-hours of total paper heaven!

I do believe I have completely recovered from the birthday-crop-till-you-drop weekend! We had so much fun. More than a dozen ladies converged on my house (10 actually stayed over) and played with paper from 10 AM on Saturday until 3 PM on Sunday! Two of them stayed an extra night...thank Heaven! They helped me get everything back to "normal", before their 4+ hour drive home!

There is one tiny little thing I would change...I would TAKE MORE PICTURES! They all got away without showing off what they accomplished. We had card making, scrapping, digital scrapping, quilling, and who knows what else they created...I missed half of it!

Here is a card I completed between eating, drawing names for "presents", and just relaxing! It was a wonderful way to spend a birthday weekend!

Piece of cake...

Yep, piece of cake...this is my new "favorite stamp set" least until I play with another new set!

I did play in the craft room over the holidays, just no blogging time. I miss surfing all the wonderful blogs I follow. Just want to say thank you to you, for coming here and for sharing your work through your blog!

Here's a little invite I put together for a "birthday party weekend sleep-over" I have coming up. Yep, 29 hours of cropping! As I've been telling everyone...the same number as my age! *wink*

I can't wait to spend the weekend with all my paper-addict friends! Happy New Year to everyone and again, thanks for stopping by!

The stamp is done in black Stazon and then I used CTMH markers and a water brush. Colored for hours...aahhh such therapy!
