The first card I made is using the images called Angel & Devil food cake stamp sets. You can find them and purchase them here http://host.pappapak16.com/~pinkpape/category_19/Whimsy-Studios.htm . We were challenged to dig through our pattered paper scraps and use at least 2 different papers.
I really wanted to use my prismas to color all of my cupcakes but the paper I guess that I printed the images on kept smudging the black..so next time I'll have to go back to printing on glossy white...that seemed to work better the last time. I colored the images this time with a little prisma but didn't get to use the gamsol on it and I also used some shimmery chalks along with lots of glitter and stickles!

Here are some digi tags I made before Christmas hit and my computer crashed. I got the digital kits from misfitsscraps and bluedreamdesigns. You can find both of their blog links on my side bar.

I haven't had time to post these pictures and I have been wanting to share them SO badly! A couple weeks ago Trish was able to come and make the wreaths we'd been planning on making for Christmas. We got the WONDERFUL inspiration & idea from Janine's blog here http://stampspaperscissors.typepad.com/stamps_paper_scissors/2008/11/more-christmas.html When we seen this wreath we knew we had to make them and so we did. We collected all the supplies and got to work! Both Trish and I made 2 each. We wanted one for ourselves of course and to make one for our parents. We had a blast making them and BOY did we have glitter from head to toe and we loved it! We both were all sparkly and so was everything else in my kitchen haha!

The challenge was to make a tag using the colors purple, silver, white & blue..I really enjoyed using these colors together they are so pretty and great for winter cards! I used the set called Catch A Falling Snowflake by Trafalgarssquare. They were the digital images from that set that I used but they are also available in stamps! You can find & purchase them here http://host.pappapak16.com/~pinkpape/category_9/Trafalgarssquare.htm

After receiving it in the mail and falling in love with this ribbon holder over and over again...I thought ok what else do I need for my craft room? My ink holder was getting a little full so I thought OH MY to have an ink holder to match with my ribbon holder and have them up on the wall side by side WOW! So I got a hold of Jeff told him what I wanted and he made it!!! Everything I asked for it was perfect...I fell in love all over again! EEEEP! I was really blessed to have met this creative man when I went on a family vacation back in Sept. and to pick up my ink holder from THE man! I really wish I would have gotten a picture with him. Anyways...here is the ink holder he made to match my ribbon holder...
It has 100 slots for the ink pads, a shelf for my ink refills (which I don't have a lot of yet), and an extra little shelf for whatever else I want.
and the two are finally on the wall side by side. Aren't they amazing?
So if you would like Jeff to make you one of these awesome creations here is the link to his site. http://creationsbyjeff.vox.com/ he also has other sizes of ink holders on his blog so go by and check his work out!
Thanks Jeff you ROCK!

Pink Cat Studio's challenge today was to make a Christmas card using non-traditional Christmas colors. As most of you know what I would pick...I ran to my scrap room and made a pink card haha! The set is with an older Christmas set that Pink Cat Studio has and is still available for purchase in the store.

I was up late last night visiting blogs. I was behind on Mojo Monday Sketch challenges so I did two of them today! I just love Julee's sketches they are so much fun. The first card was for Mojo Monday week #57 http://poeticartistry.blogspot.com/2008/10/mojo-monday-week-57.html . Julee also inspired me by the card that she did here http://poeticartistry.blogspot.com/2008/10/long-time-no-stamp.html the colors and her card is just SO beautiful. I'm loving the colors together which were Pixie Pink, Kiwi Kiss and Tangerine Tango. The stamp set is a VERY old one from Stampin Up that I borrowed from my Stampin Up demo Kathy...she was so sweet and lent it to me. I thought it was perfect for breast cancer month...which I finally got a chance to do a card before the month is over.

Here are the projects we worked on yesterday. The little spider idea I got from http://stampspaperscissors.typepad.com/stamps_paper_scissors/2008/10/am-i-norwegian.html who then got it from http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1067897?si=patties aren't these the cutest little spiders? And really simple to make. I bought a little Halloween tree that I want to put spiders on sometime before Halloween. For now I'm going to use them at my Pampered chef party this weekend for my guests to take.
My Cali girl Jen Jen gave me these BIG ol' clothes pins a couple years ago and I never did anything with them so when Trish was here yesterday I decided to pull them out so we could alter them. Tink matches my room so you guessed it the tink is mine (Jen had just also sent me these tink embelisments a couple weeks ago so I had to use them.) Trish altered the other clothes pin.
Have a WONDERFUL weekend and thanks for visiting my blog!

Here are the make n' takes that they all got to do. The first picture is the coaster boxes they made and the two others are cards.
Oh and I almost forgot to share with you all the cards the circle girls made. At the end of the party I had a contest for them to make a card with all the supplies that were on the table (from all the other projects). They freaked thinking ok...I come here to learn how to make cards now I'm on the spot to make one all by myself and no help??? HAHA! I wanted to show them that they can really do it on their own and they did!!! Check them out...they all did a WONDERFUL job don't ya think?
