TGF Altered Notepad

Just wanted to share an altered notepad I made for my secret sister for August. I used one of the Hats Off (I think that's the set) images by TGF that someone gave to me. (Forgot who. :( ) It was my first time trying the pink, orange, and yellow just for fun!

Have a Fairy Happy Birthday!

Wow, it's been awhile since I last posted! :( Life's been busy and I really miss crafting! I couldn't resist buying the new "fairwee" stamps by Amy Young (Sweet November) stamps! Super adorable! I'm still thinking how to use them in a creative way! Here's what I got for now...

A Pair Of Simple Christmas Cards!

Made a couple more Christmas cards!! Kept them simple! :) Followed the sketch from non other than Clean & Simple! I love their sketches! For this one, I wanted to try best to make my own background! I'm still learning how to do this technique...I didn't know how to space the image to make it look "natural". Also, so that it wasn't too plain, on both cards, I heat embossed the background. (you can probably see my mistakes!) I haven't embossed since last year! :O It was fun though. Both images are from Dandelion Designs.

Wow, tomorrow is Wednesday already! That much closer to the weekend! :) 
Hope you're all having a great week so far!
Thank you for your visit!

An early 2012 calendar and July CATS

Hello! I finally got to do some crafting with my friend this weekend! It always goes by so fast...and too many things we want to do! :( She suggested we alter an acrylic frame with stamps, a calendar and a post-it! It's never too early too's already August! :O I used the new (well new for me) tulip monkey by C.C. Designs.

I also wanted to share the card and tag I received from Gail (from California) for July...
love these...they are too cute!! She said it was a die...very cool!

 She also made a tea bag holder...again very cute and creative!!
 (fyi- the theme for July was red, white, and blue) 

and here's the inside...

Thanks for stopping by and for always leaving sweet comments!
I appreciate it! :)
