a card needs to be put out of its misery and this is one of them.....I posted it for Lisa over at Poppy Paperie
I'm not overly thrilled with this creation....but I had it in my head that I could be first ....LOL at posting on her site this morning......Oh what a silly woman I am....On to the details.....PTI Kraft Paper, Text Style In Bloom, PTI buttons, Martha & Hero Arts gems, PTI Ribbon & Buttons...PTI Fall Elegance Stamps.....
So with that lesson learned, don't rush take your time and do it so your happy with your creation....Well I tore this card apart 3 times and still wasn't happy it landed in the circular file...yeah the trash it stunk and I hated it...Oh, wait isn't there something called resurrection???
I dug the card base out of the trash and I attached a card front that I had started on my desk finished it up....The other thing I knew but was in denial about...I'm not a girly frills, for me that is just who I am and at this stage of my life I'm OK with that and the truth is it isn't going to change any time soon! Here it is the final project with out what Lisa was looking for but I'm happy with it and after a short show and tell it will be sent to a friend in Florida...

Also made a monogram for my sister to use on her bag that she made when we were together last week.....I have found a new to me stamp company that I love Memory Box I just love the clean uncluttered lines of their stamps and with a bit of persuation the boss ordered a boat load of them in! Ok so i know your thinking where the heck are the cards????Please camera is having issues....called I need to order a battery!

Ahhhh Spellbinders Fun!

Note! I am not a professional photographer but I think you get the idea....I love the new Pendant Dies from Spellbinders this is the Fleur De Lea (SP?) It is so fun and easy....I did find that because of the intricate detail of the dies I did need to use a paper piercer to get them out and I think that the making memories blue lifter tool would work well too. I so love this and it would be great cutting project to do in front of the tv. Questions ask away I probably won't be able to play again until the end of the the look.

Stamping with Embossing Folders....

Cassie over at
asked me for a link to a card that I had made using the technique stamping with embossing folders....well here it is...sorry for the glare....I'm not a professional photographer! I used versa mark ink and then used Faith's Clear Embossing Powder to give it a bit of shine, Vamp Stamp, PTI ribbon and Spellbinders to cut out the paper for the ribbon slide. Enjoy and if you have any questions just ask away....I'm not a frequent blogger so bare with me!

Up Dated Nesabilities Storage

Oh, my it has been 6+ months since I have I thought I would post a picture of how I am storing my nestabilities now. (Sorry about the glare)
I made magnetic books with my Bind It All the covers are fabric over bookboard Note: this was really thick to go through the bind it all and probably wouldn't try it again this way.
I still want to add labels with the name of each set and the number of dies that should be sitting there so I don't loose any.
Enjoy the pic and if you have questions feel free to ask away. Have a most excellent day!
