Grandma's Garden

Hello Everyone! I am back from another Hiatus.
 I have been creating! but not cards as much (new blog to be linked in the future it's sort of a secret right now shhh!)

 Recently I have joined into Alyce (kit and clowders) Skin and hair class so looking forward to sharing some projects once I am further into the class.

 This card is a month old but I wanted to share it because my grandmother is awesome (I know everyone says that about their grandmother but I have not only a kind considerate, funny grandmother but she has been through a lot in life and has always made family her number one priority)

 copics: Skin: E00, E00, E01, E11 and white gel pen for the freckles
Hair: E40, E41, E42, E43
Dress: sorry forgot to write down the colours but I think it was RV02, RV11, RV14 and RV19
Yellow part: Y21, Y15, Y18
Supplies: Button- Walmart, Yellow dots- melted pony beads =), Kraft and white cardstock- Michaels brand
PP: My Minds Eye Kate and Co- Cambridge Court
Stamps: Kraftin Kimmies- Peony, and My Favorite Things- Grandparents (sentiment)

I really liked how this card turned out but you may see the image again soon in the future (repeating colouring her hair after I am done with the class)

Hope you like big hugs to everyone!


PS: when my secret project blog goes up I may have a giveaway stay tuned for more!

First card of 2014!

Hello Everyone and Happy 2014!!!!

Hope everyone had a wonderful new year.... Well it's time to get my butt back into gear and starting off 2014 I have a fun card to share with you all!

My cousin is 17 and time again to celebrate her birthday! This year was a little tougher than last year to design a card for her. She is not your typical 17 year old.... She is a tomboy at heart perfering basketball and rugby too things such as flowers, crafting and girly stuff. But that being said she does like style and what girl doesn't love music!

I love this image from Some odd girl, she is so fun and I see a cute christmas card in the future about rocking around the christmas tree for next christmas! (I have to start making christmas cards early this year)

I paired her up with the hipster basic grey paper and I think it has a retro yet still modern feel to it!
added a few rhinstone stars to complete the scene and then added paint splatters to grunge it up slightly.

So you may ask what my goals are for 2014: I am starting a art journal!!! I feel like I have loads of stamps or ideas that I like for me but not necessarily work for a card. Therefore the art journal is going to be a little project for 2014. My goal is to do a page a month (hopefully going to get more than one page done a month but I wanted to set a little goal first) so look out for my art journal pages in the future!

without further ado (aka: I have rambled enough) here is my first card of 2014

Card 2 Xmas 2013- Noel!

Hello Everyone!

Well Christmas is upon us, and as soon as the snow falls I get a little nervous at the fact that I have nothing done!
So far I have 2 Christmas cards done.... So expect a few coming your way on this blog because this girl needs to get her butt into gear!!!!
My Christmas card tonight is another kraftin kimmies card! and probably not the last as I love KK designs.

When I saw this stamp I just had to get it. Not only is the girl so adorbs but I thought take the santa tag off of the cookies could be used as a great thank you card as well ( or in the case of this card I was going to use the tag but it accidentally got cut off when I was fussy cutting oops!)

 Pleats are always a challenge for me (shhhh! I will let you in on a little secret that's why I am a pattern paper piecer b/c I am not a fan of coloring clothes) But with a little help around the web on how other girls coloured her dress I was able to do I think a decent job on them.

I am entering this card into the following Challenge
1. Kraftin kimmies Wednesday challenge

Inspired By:
- Cheryl Valadez (design inspiration)
- Jenny Peterson (inspiration on how to colour her pleats

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? no it's a new card!!!!!!

Hello Everyone!!!!!

I have a new card today it only took me.......  7 hours to make! (granted some of that time was spent learning how to use my silhouette and coloring this image over and over again....)

This card was made for my cousin/ roomate's birthday which I am going to be celebrating in the next hour! it is also Thanksgiving here in Canada so I get Turkey!!! (yum!)

I bought this stamp last year when kraftin kimmie's released it specifically for my cousin, She loves coffee and I have had this idea brewing (no pun intended... well ok kinda intended hehehe) for the past year or two. Now I love this image but it isn't an easy one to colour as the image has a lot of thin lines and as I haven't been practicing I knew my colouring skills were off.... But I went for it anyways and gotta say I love my design.

I want to enter this card into the kraftin kimmie's challenge:
Kraftin kimmie birthday challenge

I will be back later to post what supplies I used but gotta get going to the birthday party!

Random fact: since todays Thanksgriving I thought it would only be right to say what I am thankful for....
1. My family I am so thankful for how close we all are and that we get to celebrate all these fun evens together
2. That I live in Canada- I am so fortunate to live in a place where I feel comfortable, secure, and proud of the people we are.
3. That I can share and see all the amazing talented scrabooking, cardmaking, crafty girls inspirations from all over the world! so thanks to you!!!!!!!

Joy, Peace, and Love this Christmas

Hello Everyone!

Ok so it has been June since I last posted but I have been creating.

 I will have a few cards that I have created in the last few months to show off, starting with my favorite which is this one. Christmas will soon be arriving and every year I try to make at least a few Christmas cards before December. So far this is the only one I have made.... (I am secretly going AHHHHH! I only have a few months til then) I find it difficult to make the cards if I am not in the mood.

 Here is my christmas card inspired by the very talented Cheryl's (inktrap) Halloween card that is one of my favorites of her's (I was inspired by the design of her card) you can find her card here at  (go to the side click on 2012 and go to Aug cards.... sorry I am still trying to figure out how to directly link to the post she made... If anyone can tell me how I would be very grateful)

Supplies Used:
 Copics skin E3000, E300, E01, E02, and R20
Copics Hair E30, E35, E57, E49 white around the fluffy's on her coat BG000, BG00 wreath, YG17, G45 (I think forgot to write that down)
Stamp: Kraftin Kimmie's Joy Stamp
Other Supplies: Cardstock from Michaels, Pattern paper from Kaiser Krafts just believe collection, Spellbinders lacey circle die Ribbon, pom poms, and bling.

Entering the following Challenge: Kraftin Kimmie's Blog- Anything goes (this week) 

Little something about me: Christmas is my favorite time of year. Being in Canada we get snow really early (sometimes as early as Sept) which I am not a fan of, But if on Christmas we don't have snow (only once from recent memory do I recall not having snow) it really isn't Christmas for me... I guess what would be ideal is if It snowed the week before christmas and then by New years it melted... lol I can dream!
