Couldn't resist the deal!!

In the event you didn't know....I LOVE Copic Markers!  They do get a little pricey tho.  I came across some at Joann's online store tho....and you get to use a coupon!  I also LOVE to use coupons! 

Joann's was selling the 36 Copic Marker set and I had a 50% off coupon for them!  I did, however, buy duplicate if any of you out there need Copic Markers...all of my duplicate colors are for sale for $4 a piece plus postage.  I have not priced postage yet...but if you are interested, I will price the postage then email you back with the price before the final sale.

These markers have never been used or opened to the air.

Just leave a comment if you are interested with contact information and I will get back to you!

Have a Great day and thanks for stopping by!

Wow! It's been a long time!

The time has flown by since my last I'm sorry!  Taking care of a large house, 2 kids, a dog and a full time job sucks up a lot of time!

I have been busy in the Craft Closet tho!  I completely reorganized my whole crafting world!  It was no mean feat, let me tell you!  My "Closet" had become a black hole, sucking in things where they couldn't be found, that is unless I went in search of something else!

Here's a few photos of the reorg!

These are my beloved Color Cubies!  My Brother and SIL created them!  He is a master craftsman and she is..well...the most creative person I know!

You can find them here!

Here is the 2nd part of my reorg!  Joann Fabric and I have a wonderful relationship!

Well that pretty much does it for this post!  As you can see, I now have no excuse for not posting my creations! 

See you next time and Thanks for stopping by!

Valentines - No stamping required!

With Valentines Day right around the corner, I decided to play around with a few ideas!  Here is a card I made using some K&Company paper (just one of my favorite paper companies!)

The K&Company paper stack had a page of these incredible cute already made valentine toppers.

I matted some SU Chocolate Chip cardstock under after running it thru the Cuttle Bug first.  Then another layer of K&Company paper.  The card is made using the PaperTrey Kraft cardstock.  To finish it off I used a Martha Stewart border punch!  The whole card took maybe 5 minutes!

Cards, Cards, Cards

It's been a while and I've already broken my New Years resolution to post at least once a week!  It's been a busy busy time and I haven't been able to get into my craft closet!  Last weekend I decided to just lock myself in!  My little girls helped by doing some much needed house work!  They have been such awesome troupers since my husband took a job in CA.

Another one of my New Years resolutions is to send a birthday card to all of my relatives.  I come from a large family, so this is a great big challenge, but I'm determined!

Here are a few I've done so far:

This one was created using the Classic Convertable stamp set from Stampin Up.  This is an old set but I needed a man card and men love cars. 

Materials used:

Classic Convertable Stamp Set -SU
Card Stock - SU
Chocolate Chip ink - SU
Copic Markers
Deja View's paper punch out - "Indulge Yourself" die cut

This little guy is so versitile.  He can be used for either Male or Female cards.

Materials used:

Turtle and sentiment - Inkadinkado 12 Clear Stamps
Swirl - Inkadinkado 7 Clear Stamps
Copic markers
Card stock - Stampin Up
Designer paper - Stampin Up

I will post more Valentines I made a little later...right now, off to more adventuring!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Won't you be my Valentine?

The Christmas holiday is over and what a wonderful time we had with family and friends!  I wanted to keep ahead of the up coming Valentine's day events, so I decided to start my valentines!  I came across this idea when I went on a retreat last year with my SIL.  One of her dear friends was turning 50 and decided to host a retreat weekend down in Farmington.  One of the projects we decided to do was a shoebox exchange.  One of the ladies came equipt with this adorable little bag and taught us how to make it!  I wish I could remember her name, but as you look at it, maybe you can help me out!

Materials Used:

SU card stock: Pretty in Pink
SU paper punch
SU designer paper: Bella Rose
Spellbinders - Labels Eight
Cuttle Bug: Floral Fantasy embossing folder
Cricut - George and Basic Shapes
Clothes pin - Dollar store
Bag - Treat sacks

A handmade Christmas!

With things a little tight this year, a handmade Christmas was just the trick!  I needed something cute for all the teachers and kid care ladies!

Here are a few of the things I came up with!

This is an "Elf Boot."  I googled "elf boot template" and found it right here Valitas Fresh Folds blog.  The template fits on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper.  There's an easy step by step instruction sheet to go with it.

This is a ceramic tile that we had left over from a tile project! I used my Cricut (woodlands cartridge) and Spellbinders for this one.

I hope you enjoy and Thanks for stopping by!
