Guest Designer for

Hi everyone! Happy Monday!
It's the last day of the month, and I know everybody is very busy since it's also Monday, plus the weather has been crazy all over the place, and I can just imagine the chaos! I wanted to share the fact that, as you see on my sidebar, I'm currently guest designing for, and I'm so super excited!
I received some products I wanted to share with you, and have already started creating with them.
Watch the following video for all the details, and stay tuned for more coming in the next couple of days!

Create Banner

Today I wanted to share a banner I made with the Paper Niche's October Kit. It's the second banner I ever make and I loved how it turned out. Simply a nice piece to put in my craft room. Right now it is at the store, and it looks great there too :)
I used an one of the Accucut Banner dies to make it, with both medium weight, and light weight chipboard. I used my Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays on the rosettes ( I used a mixture of two sprays: Tainted Love Teal and My Mojito Green),  which I made with my Tim Holtz rosette die, as well as on the corrugated chipboard letters from the kit ( I used a mixture of Pretty in Pink Pink and Rhodeonderon Rose Red for those), which I love!

I distressed all the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and added some bling for more interest. The hanging charms were made with the Kaiser Craft canvas tags included on the kit. I added some Making Memories Charms, also from the kit, as well as a swivel clasp, and some metal Tim Holtz charms from my stash. I sprayed the background of each panel with another of my ALL time favorites (I need a gallon of it at home I tell you) Glitz Spritz in Cactus Gold! Love that stuff!!!
It was a really fun project to create, and I can't wait until I hang it on my new organized scraproom (once I'm done organizing it of course! LOL).
Now, for the many of you that have been curious (I've been getting private messages and emails like crazy asking me about it!), I am currently working on editing my giveaway winners video.  It has taken me a while to go through all the videos and comments...I'll be uploading the video in a bit.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend. It seems that I'm finally on the mend from this awful flu I caught! Yay! Thanks for stopping by!

Baby baby!

Today I wanted to share my Olivia by Basic Grey baby mini album. I received the chipboard base from my crafty friend Carolanne (Loganscraftymomma on YT), and I just knew the Olivia collection was going to be perfect to use on this small album.
The weather was not the best when I took these pictures, so I had to take them inside. I'm not thrilled with the results of them, (yes, I'm very hard on myself), but at least you can see what I made and it's not blurry! LOL

I was really happy with this half transparent pocket I made. This is exactly how I wanted it to look like.

It was really fun to make, and if you want to see the details of the pocket, and everything I did on this album, you can click on to watch the detail video HERE.
Hope you enjoyed!

Totally forgot!

Hello everyone. Happy Sunday!
Just wanted to stop by today and link you up to my Tim Holtz Cruise video. I totally forgot to share it over here. I know that many of you don't follow my videos, so I wanted to make sure I shared it on here, so no one would miss it. It took me a while to edit, but I think I did a good job on it, considering I don't know too much of this editing stuff. It pretty much sums up my whole cruise experience, and I know if you watch it, you'll get a feel of how everything went about if you weren't able to attend.
Tim will be taking the next year off from these kind of big events, but he says that in the future, he has many more activities coming our way.  I'm so excited and curious to know what he has up his sleeve! Totally enjoyed this cruise, and can't wait to take more classes with him again in the future. He truly is a talented artist and wonderful person, and so are all his crew members.
Hope you too can enjoy this video!

It's Fall Ya'll Inspiration Projects

Hello! Today I wanted to share the inspiration projects I made for the Lindy's Stamp Gang's Fall Creative contest ( Click HERE for more info on the contest, which ends Oct. 24!). I had a lot of fun coloring with Micas and Magical Micas.

I don't celebrate Halloween, and barely have any supplies to make any related projects, but I looked around my room, and had to make something with this owl stamp, and some awesome Lindy's Stamp Gang Micas. It's a playful card, and I liked the "too cute to spook" message, and I went from it to make my trifold card.

The Cuttlebug Embossing folder I used, was one I bought because I totally loved the design, even though I did not know when, or in what I would use it, but it was one of those things I had to have. I'm glad I got it. Love the embossed spiderweb!
You can see the full video tutorial on all the Lindy's Stamp Gang products I used and how I used them by clicking HERE.
All the Lindy Stamp Gang Products made my owl look so awesome, not to mention the shimmer on the clouds is fabulous!!!

All the micas I used to color this card definitely brought it to life. I LOVE the finished look!
The next one is essentially the same process, except, it's a "Fall/Thanksgiving" themed trifold card.
On this one, instead of using an embossing folder to dry emboss, I used Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powder, and I love the shimmery look!

All the colors I used are detailed on the video, so don't forget to watch. The prizes of the contest are pretty awesome, so I hope my projects have inspired you to make something too, so you can join us on the fun, and maybe win an awesome prize! Thanks for stopping by!

Here's some of what we got...

I've been busy doing everything you can imagine, and cutting up video footage from the cruise....I have no idea how I'll be able to cram in a whole week full of video footage into less than half an hour (that is my goal, but I'm not succeeding at the moment LOL). That is without pictures too!!! I have a ton of those as well. It is driving me nuts.

So, in the meantime (because it is taking me sometime to edit everything), I wanted to share some pictures of some of the products we received for participating on the cruise.... 

I definitely did not expect to receive so much product, on top of all the materials we got for the projects we made on board, but I was happy we did! Who doesn't like free stuff, right??? Some of the things we received just came out at Summer CHA (like the Prima Paper Pack and embellishments, the Kraft Core Cardstock etc.)... some are really hard to find...many stores seem to be sold out off some of them. We even got a Tim Holtz messenger bag that isn't even on the market yet. That was fabulous. It was hard trying to figure out how we were going to bring back home all the stuff they were giving us on each class day, but it was awesome!

The cruise sponsors were very generous, and also supplied a ton of product to be given away at the raffle, on the last class day of the cruise... even complete lines of product (like archival ink for example----you didn't get a few of them, if you won, you won ALL the archival ink pads!) It was insane! I didn't win anything at the raffle though, but my friend Dale did. I'm glad at least someone from my group got some extra goodies.

So this was my sneak peek for today. I have to get back to editing... there is so much video I need to go through...and email...I'm still not caught up with my email either! It definitely was a fun trip. Stay tuned!!!

I'm baaaaaack!

Yes, I am back and totally exhausted! What a fun and active week I had. It was definitely fantastic getting to meet Tim for the first time and get spend so many days doing what we all love to do, get our craft on!
It was great to see how down to earth, patient, nice, and professional Tim was, as well as his entire crew. It was fun getting to meet so many other crafters at once ( I believe it was a group of around 170 people----we were divided into two groups, which was a great size for the type of classes we took---and to be honest, I didn't  even notice the large group, because most of time, it felt like each and everyone of us was getting one on one instruction and help from Tim himself. It was awesome!
I don't have much time to sit and write now, and to be honest have not even unpacked completely yet, even though I got home yesterday... After picking up my dog and cutie pie daughter, I ended up getting home at about 5pm, and all I wanted to do was lay on the couch and watch everything move around me LOL. However, I ended up cleaning my daughter's room,  tiding up her playroom, doing two loads of her laundry, and taking a 20 minute nap. Ha!
There's still tons I have to do today, and nothing is related to YouTube, blogging or organizing all of the amazing goodies we got from this trip. They gave us so much stuff!!!
I need to catch up with my work at home, before I start editing all the video footage from the trip, uploading all the pictures I took, and finishing up some of the class projects I wasn't able to complete while aboard the ship. I'd like to show you those when finished. They are AWESOME! Tim will be sharing his version of them on his blog soon too :)

I just wanted to stop on by here, and let you know I'm back home, but with lots to do, so it might take a while for me to get back to my routine and get uploaded all I have to share about this great cruise. Stay tuned and thanks for stopping by!
