Tim Holtz "12 Tags of Christmas" Day 1...

Okay, if you are a fan of the great Tim Holtz, then you know that for the past 4 years he has done the 12 tags of Christmas starting on December 1st.  Well Tim did not let us done because he has decided to do it again for the fifth year ...YEA!

 Anyway, I decided to give a shot at the tags even though I never have what he uses on his.  So I thought I could just wing it.  And wing it I did. Her is my very first  Tim Inspired tag...

And here is a close-up of my home made pine cone:

So, I know Mr. Holtz does not have to worry about me over taking him in the creative talent area any time soon, but I am pretty proud of myself for trying.  In fact, I am in the process of completing the day two tag...WAHOO!

And for those who don't know where to find the original tags posted by Tim Holtz you can check out his blog : HERE

Thanks for looking.  And please, keep the laughing to a minimum HAHA!

Welcome to Scrap-Friendzy's BUNNY{blog}HOP!

Welcome to your 8th stop on the BUNNY{blog}HOP sponsored by Scrap-Friendzy! If you are following the links from the beginning of the hop, you should have come from Chris's BLOG. If not, and you wish to participate in the blog hop, please start at the Scrap-Friendzy blog HERE.

Now, on to my projects created especially for the Bunny Hop.  On this card my main "ingredient" was using mist.  It's a new thing to me because I sometimes let things intimidate me.  Especially when you really don't have a lot of control on what it is going to end up looking like.  And for a clean line scrapper like me, that can be just plain stressful at time.  But because I misted my base piece and layered all the other pieces on top, it wasn't so bad :o)

Bugaboo stamp, DCWV papers, Bazzil Cardstock, Smooch Spritz, Ribbon Boutique ribbon
And on this layout, my main "ingredient" was inking.  I used a bright yellow ink pad to ink all my edges.  It sure does make me think of all those buttercups I have been seeing around here lately.
DCWV Cardstock, Cosmo Cricket papers, AC ribbon, Doodlebug stickers and sugar coating, MM alpha stickers. Studio G ink pad, Inkadinkado flourish stamps, MME button, unknown rhinestones, unknown trim

Your next stop on the blog hop will be CHERYL'S BLOG. Don't forget to leave a comment here, and on each stop on the blog hop. Then, make sure you finish up at the Scrap-Friendzy forum and post that you have completed the hop. Your name will be entered into a drawing for a fabulous grand prize!

If you are taking the additional BIG BUNNY HOP CHALLENGE, my "ingredient" is: COLOR MEDIUM (mist, paint, or colored ink for inking)--After all, we can't have dyed Easter eggs without dye!

In addition to the BUNNY{blog}HOP grand prize given by Scrap-Friendzy, I'm offering 2 fun RAKs too!! To be entered into my drawing, all you just have to do is: Become a follower of my blog and leave a comment on this post!! Easy-peasy!!!  I will randomly draw two names that have done this to be my winners.

Bugaboo Stamp #2

If you read my previous post, you'll see why this card is being posting in a new post instead of in the same one as my other card.

This card is created using the instructions at Split Coast Stampers and is an easel card.

I used American Crafts paper, DCWV Cardstock, Colorbok ink and Paper Studios Gemstones.  I used my Bic Mark Its to color the image and my Dymo Labeler for the sentiment.

Another Bugaboo Stamp card...

Over on the Bugaboo Stamps challenge blog, Catch the Bug , this weeks challenge is to make a card with a different type of fold.  So I created two cards specifically for this challenge.  However I can never get the linky thing to let me add two different links using the same blog post and therefore there will be two posts back to back with cards in them so I can enter them both.  This first one is using the instructions form Split Coast Stampers for this Spring card.  I loved making this card and I am sure it will brighten someone's day who isn't feeling well.

I used Jillibean Soup paper, DCWV cardstock, Ribbon Boutique Ribbon, Staz-on Ink, And The Paper Studio Gemstones.  I did the sentiment using my Dymo labeler.  I used Bic Mark Its to color the image.

Bugaboo Stamps: I *HEART* Them

Here are a couple more cards using a Bugaboo Digital Stamp.  It was one of their freebies this past week and it's from their  Little Bit of Oz Collection.  The Tin man was also a freebie.

This one is blank on the inside right now so I can make it for whatever occasion I need it to be.
I made this to give to a friend of mine.

If you haven't checked out Bugaboo Stamps you really should.  They are by far my favorite Digi Stamp place.

Hello all...

Just thought I would pop in a share some "TWEET" boxes I made for mine and DH's Sunday school class.  I plan to put some Valentine's Cookies in there for the kids.

Here is the group shot of all 8:

Here is a picture of just the three girl boxes:
And aClose up of one of them so you can see the digital stamp better:
And here are the boys:

And again, a close-up so you can see this digital stamp as well:

The Digital stamps are from here:Digital Stamps
And the template/ directions for the box can be found at Splitcoast Stampers right here: 2-5-7-10 BOX

They were so fun and easy to make that I am thinking about making some more for party favors next time I have a party :)

Thanks for checking them out and I hope that you all have a very blessed day.

WOW!  It has been a long time since I posted.  Sorry about that.

I just thought I would pop over and post a card I made using a digital stamp from Bugaboo Stamps.  If you've never tried digi stamps than you really should.  They are so fun to work with and I thing Bugaboo's are the absolute best out there.  And you can try them for free because each Friday there is a new freebie posted that you can nab to try them out.  Anyway, on to the card:

Isn't this the funniest image!

Hope you like it.  And make sure you hop over to Bugaboo Stamps and grab you a freebie to try.
