Another new stamp from Whimsie Doodles. Doodle bear is all ready for the pool party. I thought I would be fun to use the Drippy Goo stamp to represent water dripping down the card.

The little clear bag I decorated was a Calgon bag (it originally contained 4 body mists). I counldn't stand to throw out a little bag like that so I stashed it away until I could find a use for it. I'm so glad I did. Now if I could only figure out how to re-use those zippered bags that some bed sheets come in! Any suggestions??

here's a pic of the cover.
And guess what??? Canadian Scrapbooker cantacted me and asked if I'd like to be featured in their "Passport to Creativety" segment. For each issue they choose 3 scrapbookers from a province and feature them in this segment. And they want ME!!!! I can't believe it! The publish 3 of your layouts, your photo and a little question/answer section. I'm so nervous about sounding silly!! LOL. Anyway the issue I'll be in will be out in Oct of this year. My only concern now is if they pick a goofy pic of me...hahahahhaha! (keeping my fingers crossed).

It's time for another ShortCuts project and today I'm showing you a card I made using a ShortCuts frosted sheet and Sizzix flower die. It's easy to make flowers and any other shape out of ShortCuts clear and frosted sheets using dies, just think of it as cardstock and go for it.
I took a close up shot of the flower to show you that I added polkadots to the petals using Liquid Pearls and brushed White Staz On the edges.

Another sneak peek of a new set of Miss Anya. This is Shine from Rain, Snow and Shine. She is one of 3 in the set. To see more of my cards using this set stop by here.
I thought I'd try and make a sort of beach scene card. So I used a scallop die for the sun, stitched the "sand" and threw in some flowers!! LOL. Everything is chalked and inked. I love the look of chalking/inking the edges and of course stitiching!!

Michael's had a sale on adhesive backed felf so I grabbed a bunch of colours. I knew I wanted to make my own felt flowers and the fact they all ready had adhesive was a bonus!!! Then I just ran them through my Big Shot with a Sizzix flower die. It works perfectly!! Then I added the yellow promo flower and buttons and there ya go a field of flowers. Well if you can call two flowers a "field" that is. LOL

Aren't the pattern papers cute?? I just love them!! They are the new line of papers from The Greeting Farm called "Sunny Glen" paper pack. They are a double sided 6x6 pack of paper (48 sheets in total). You have to check them out for yourself!!
Just incase you love it to and want to make it yourself I made a *template for you!!
*Just so you know I made this card on a sheet of 12x12 cardstock, but the template is made to fit on an 8.5x11 sheet. I don't know about you but I don't have a giant printer and wouldn't be able to print anything larger than letter size (8.5x11). Sorry it's not to scale of my original card.

Isn't Miss Anya cute with her rubber boots and umbrella. I think any card with her on it will brighten anyone's day. Even a rainy day!!
I know it's to early for winter cards but Miss Anya with her ear muffs is just to cute not to make a card with. This paper just screamed "vintage" to me so I helped the look along with some Distress ink. And Sweet Miss Daisy's style of making snowflakes. I don't think I'll be able to make a plain snowflake again!! LOL
See I just love "Snow Anya" she's just too cute. Even with the hot spring days I'm happily making winter cards with Anya as my muse!! These colours are my favorite winter colours and again Miss Daisy style snowflake adorns the card.
These stamps will be available at The Greeting Farm May 15.

Well it's Friday and the first day of May! Wow where is the time going??
I'm really excitied to show you todays 3D project. ShortCuts full clear sheet is the best thing to use when making clear projects you want to stand on their own. They are crystal clear and easy to use. And I added a pictorial tutorial for you incase you want to try one. The clear case is perfect for making the kabob a gift and makes carrying it easy!
