I actually got to use and colour another one of my Kraftin Kimmie stamps, which are some of my favourite stamps to use and colour. Well I better finish up the project I am working one. I am creating some covered travel baby wipe containers for a person at work who wanted to buy some from me. If I get the chance I will post some pics of those too. I just wanted to come and update my blog. Hope everyone has a great week!

So anyways, I wanted to share with you my tag since it is the first tag I have ever made. I think it turned out cute.
The challenge was to make a tag or a card that used 2 stamps and 1 button. I decided to make the tag since I have not made one before (as I said above). I cut the tags on my Cricut. I used a mix of scraps that I tore into strips I had in black, white and pink. I stamped the girl from the Greeting Farm Sweet and Toxic set, I also used the sentiment "Sweet & Toxic" on the little tag, so those were my two stamps. I coloured her with my Copic Markers and paper pieced her dress. I the put her on foam tape and placed her on a paper doily that I had. I decided that I wanted to make some small yoyo flowers and that was how I would incorporate my button. I made a small black with a pink button and a small white lace with a gray button. I the used some lace and loopy ribbon that I have to finish it off. I am pretty please with the finished product.
I hope everyone is having a good week. I am definitely looking forward to the weekend!

Greeting Farm stamp Fairy Anya. I bought it off someone on Splitcoaststampers. I also got two more Greeting Farm stamps from the same person, Mermaid Anya and the I Do set. I got great deals on them so I was excited. I also got some new to me Kraftin Kimmie stamps from Splitcoast as well that I am trying to come with a project for. Anyways, I coloured her with my few Copic markers, which is one reason she has pink hair. I also added Stickles to her wings because fairies need bling. I used a sentiment from another fairy set I have, which I think is a Pink Cat Studio set. Paper in the background is from Michaels and the green paper was kindly given to me when I bought some stamps off someone on Splitcoast. The flower is from the dollar bin at Michaels and the brad is Memory Makers. The card base is just one of the ones from WalMart that I have. My friend liked it so I was happy.
My interest lately has been piqued by making actual scrapbook pages. I have been watching some videos where people share what they have made and it has made me want to try it. I might get a kit on my next pay day and try it out. Does anyone have any scrapbooking idea websites they would like to share? I would appreciate it. I have also been longing for some of the Some Odd Girl stamps, but I haven't found any used yet. I think they are so cute! It's just a little out of my budget right now, shipping to Canada is a little expensive too. Oh well, hopefully someday soon.
Anyways, I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Looking forward to catching up with my Blogger friends! :)

I recently went to a baby shower to welcome a new little bundle and was excited to test drive some new to me stamps.

Here are four tags I made for our Easter baskets:
Here is a little Easter card I made for our neighbor:
Both projects used my MFT Pure Innocence (I think it's called) Warm Fuzzies stamp set. I coloured all of them with my Prismacolor pencils. They used DCWV paper and some K&Co Paper. I am pretty happy with how they turned out!
This is a thank you card I made for our neighbor. I used some of my Pink Cat Studio Lily and Tweet stamps for this card. I just recently bought them off Splitcoaststampers. I was excited to break them out and take them for a spin! I used DCWV paper and a card base from Wal-Mart. The bling is from Dollarama. I coloured this imagine with my Prismacolors pencils again.
This is a birthday card I made for my father in law. I used my Billy Pink Cat Studio stamp set. I also got this set from Splitcoaststampers. The paper is from American Crafts. The card base is from Wal-Mart. I coloured him with my Prismacolor pencils.
So that is part of what I have been up to, ha ha. I am back to work on Monday, but I got some fun stuff to play with from a recent trip to Winnipeg (like my new ATG Gun!). I also have some stuff coming in the mail, so more toys to play with, ya! Have a great week!

Sorry for the prolonged absence, life has gotten in the way of my crafting. I am here to say that I am taking a little time to share a card I made based off one of the My Favorite Things Sketches, number 63. I didn't get it done in time to post it to the Challenge, but I liked the sketch and I liked how my card turned out so I thought I would share.
I know, I know, I used this cutie in my last card share, but I love her so much I used her again. I only have two PI Girls right now, so until I am using them all the time. This time I coloured her with pencil crayons. I used some K and Company paper and some dollar store bling. I liked the way she turned out. I would really like to try different colouring methods, like OMS and Prismacolors.
I have expanded my stamp collection a bit (ok, a lot) over the last month or so.So I promise to used a different stamp next time (hee hee). I am still waiting to get some decent paper and card stock, there is a possible trip to Winnipeg this week, so I am hoping to get some, and possibly visit a Michael's. I have a couple more projects in the works, so I will hopefully have more to share this weekend. Enjoy the rest of your Friday!

Anyways, I thought I would share a card I made this week for my supervisor at work.
I got to use my new Pure Innocence "You're So Tweet" stamp. I paper pieced her dress and sleeves with some K&Company Sweet Nectar paper. Actually all the paper on this card is from that mat stack. I really like it. It is probably some of nicest paper you can get here, since Wal-Mart is the only place to buy supplies in a brick and mortar store. I forgot to take a picture of the inside, but I used the light pink paper with flowers on the inside and one of the other sentiments from the set that says "Happy Bird-day!" The rest of the image I coloured in with my watercolour pencils.
I am hoping soon to make a trip to the city, either Thunder Bay or Winnipeg, so I can get some Copics or Prismacolors and Odorless Mineral Spirits for colouring. I also need to get some heavier card stalk, as mine tends to bleed sometimes. I bought some Copics off a person on Splitcoaststampers, but just a few skin coloured ones. I am debating whether or not to buy some Bic Mark It pens to play with or just wait and buy some more Copics or pencils. I guess I will see when my markers arrive how I feel about it.
I am going to go enjoy the rest of the weekend, what little of it there is left. I am hoping to have a couple of more card shares this week, as I am creating some cards from a few of the member companies sketches on Splitcoaststampers.

I just thought I would share a couple of things I have created lately. I was inspired to do so, so I could enter BAcraftygirl's challenge on YouTube. Here is the link to her channel so you can go check her out: http://www.youtube.com/user/BAcraftygirl
You had to use four stamps while creating your project. Repeats of stamps counted. So here is what I came up with.
Here is my first project which is a Post It holder:
Here is the link to the video I made about my Post It Holder (<-- click here)
Here is my second project which was a wipe board (white board? lol):
The link to my video about this project/entry can be found here.
And last but not least for my last entry I added some stamped embellishments to a photo my fur baby McGee. The link to the video about this project can be found here.
Thanks again for stopping by. Go visit BAcraftygirl's channel and check out all the contest entries and all her awesome projects. I am thinking about possibly doing more videos, but I need a regular camera, since my dog ate mine (well, killed it by chewing it). I would like to do a haul of all the stamps I have gotten off the Splitcoaststampers site and some more project shares. So hopefully that is what's to come!

I recently have started making handmade flowers and children's headbands. I have also started paper crafting and stamping (which someone should have warned me that stamps can easily become an addiction). If you would like to see some of my headbands, please visit : Sweet E Pie, my Facebook page where I sell them. I haven't been as active with my crafting, but would like to become more consistent again.
I am going to be posting picture of my projects, how to's and the occasional giveaway, so I hope you will check in often! Positive feedback is always appreciated and I would love to follow your blog if you have one. I am looking forward to sharing with you!
