Cool Stuff!

I'm posting this late but last month I won this blog candy from Amy. She has some nice card creations so go check her blog out =} I can't wait to use these stamps and stuff she gave. I'm sorta broken for a while. I slammed my finger in the van door and haven't done a card since. It really sucks!!

My friend told me of the new products that are releasing from CTMH and
knows how I am totally into bags and stuff. So this rolling carryall and tote I had to get. I love the color and also because I am always lugging my stuff to people's houses to craft. It's a convenient way to travel. But I think I'll make more use of them on my Vegas trip =} I think it'll be good to take them on the plane.

House Collection Set 2

Wow, this is one big set Elizabeth created! Aren't they all so cute? It sure took me a while to figure out what to do. But I was thinking something like a framed picture rather than a card. This week's element along with the image is flowers of any type. I used the Marvy Uchida 2" punch to make the squares along the edges. I just had to use that paper because I really liked the colors. The buttons and pearl adhesives I used for the tree and bush is from Close To My Heart. The flowers are Petaloo Dazzles from Memory Works and I made her cap a little furry using the q-tip cotton.

Tommy Train

Tommy Train

Yay. My second week on the design team and I feel I'm getting the hang of it. This week Tracey and I were given a couple of images and two patterned papers to print from Elizabeth. We got the stars background which I cut and spaced apart and also, the matching stripes that I made going across. This image is Tommy Train. Originally, I printed two of these images. One of him in the size you see and I printed another in a much bigger size to get the train like that. I also printed the bird from another Tommy image so I could cover the part where I pulled the train from. So voilà! There it is..hope Elizabeth enjoys the card.

Please visit the other DT's link from my previous post to see what kind of images they were given. I can't wait to see what they've created too!

~Taking Care of Flowers~

Last month Elizabeth of Softpencil from Argentina asked me to be her guest designer for the month of August and I gladly accepted. Each week they are given one of her designs and are assigned elements to use. This week it's this image called, "Taking care of flowers" and we are to use bows and buttons. So this is what I came up with.

Check out the other Softpencil design team:

Shelley - Senior Designer
Tracey - Guest Designer

By the way, look at my banner above!! It was created by Elizabeth =) She asked what I like and I said cupcakes. Since I didn't have a banner she created one just for me. Isn't that a SWEET thing of her to do?? I just LOVE it!!!
