Smash Book Page 2...

I made it to page 2 in my Smash Book.
I'm going to go with things I color for the store for this book.
I maybe will start another one after I see how this one is going.
The image is a digital image from Mo's Digital Pencil.
Her name is Georgia.
She's one of the images I colored for my Just For Fun Posts.
That reminds me I didn't have one this week.
I better work on something this weekend.

Here is page 1 and 2.
I ended up adding another image Ginger Meadows to page 1.
You can see the original page HERE if you would like.
I just thought it need more stuff.
And since I used the Copic BG's I thought she would be perfect.

I may have to add another something to page 2.
I'm sure the whole book will be a work in progress.

Thanks for stopping by.
I hope your having a fabulous weekend.

I'll see you tomorrow with Sunday Share.

Those bubble have possibility!

Ginger Meadows...

I love this cute new Whimsy Stamps image by Elisabeth Bell
The pretty paper is My Minds Eye - Follow Your Heart - Be Amazing.
I love this paper line.
One side has great patterns and the other has some kind of design or saying that's
perfect for scrapbooking or albums.

I made the clouds with the template that can be down loaded  HERE
You just print it out and use it over and over.

After I got the card all made I decided I should use one of the 
new Whimsy Stamps Ticket Notes Sentiment Stamps.
I cut it out with the Whimsy Stamps Ticket Die. You could also use the new Fancy Ticket Die.
The Sentiment Set and Die are not included in the card kits.
I didn't have enough to toss them in.
So if you would like to add the sentiment to your kit you have to buy it separately.
It is a really cute sentiment set.

Thanks for stopping by.
I hope you have a great weekend!

Tilda with Peony...

This cute water coloring card kit features Tilda with Peony.
Isn't she cute!
I love that pretty flower.
The paper is Basic Grey Kissing Booth.

I used the new Ranger Distress Markers to add deep shadows to her hair and the flower.
I haven't really had a chance other then that to play with them.
But I can see the possibilities.
I really like how I can go back with the marker and add streaks to hair with the fine tip end.
Pretty cool!
After I've played with them a bit more I'll do a video using them.

Have a fabulous Friday!

Smash Book Page 1...

I started my Smash Book!
So here is page one. 
I decided I would start with last weeks Just For Fun post coloring.
I always have a bag of left over stuff sitting on my craft area.
Like flowers I didn't use, borders I tried and hated, doily's and stuff like that.
Things that didn't make the card kit cut.

It looks a little bare to me, but I'm sure the pages will progress as I go along.
Who knows I may add some more coloring to this page.
So you may see it again.
It will be kind of fun to see how different page 1 is to page 25.
I've never done a book like this so I don't have a bunch of
cute embellishments laying around.
I'm sure I will be on the look out for cute things I can add to the pages.

I've ordered a few more Smash things that should be arriving Friday.
So keep a look out in the store if you would like to start your own.

Thanks for stopping by.

Celebration Tilda....

How about a new Water Coloring Card Kit.
I'm also in a pink mood I guess.
This kit and the next kit uses the Basic Grey Kissing Booth Collection.
Or maybe I just wanted to use some up so I can get some new something else.
The cute butterfly punch I used can also be found in the store.
I use it a lot so thought I better get some for the store.

Hope your having a great day!

June Monthly Card Kits - Cute Birgitta & Spring Fence and Party Lucy & Magical Wishes

June's Monthly Card Kits  feature CC Designs Stamps.
Every month there is a new release with super cute images and dies.
I have a box full waiting to color.

Both kits include two stamps this month!

The beautiful paper is My Minds Eye Follow Your Heart: Be Amazing.
I have used a couple new dies.
My Favorite Things: Photo Corners
Whimsy Stamps: Picket Fence (I'll be ordering more if it says out of stock)

The pretty paper is My Minds Eye: Miss Caroline.
I have used a couple of new dies on this one as well.
My Favorite Things: Mini Doily Circles & Circle Stax 2
The larger doily isn't new but went with the Mini Doily Circle I picked.
It also works with both Circle Stax 1 & Circle Stax 2.

The Magical Wishes Sentiment set comes with 16 different sentiments.
I picked "You're so special"
but you can easily fit: best friends, hey girly, hello princess or follow your dreams in the circle.

This sentiment set would also work great with the Copic Coloring Card Kit.
I also used the new Ranger Distress Marker: Bundled Sage to add shadows to her dress.
I need to get these out and play with them some more.

I''l be working on the online class that goes with both of these later this week.
I'll come back here and post a link.

Stamping Tilda...

I couldn't resist this limited addition Tilda when I was shopping.
This will make the perfect birthday card for a stamping friend.

The layout is pretty simple, but I wanted the die cut embossed pieces to really show up.
Along with Tilda of course.
I haven't done any embossing so I thought that would be fun.
The beautiful paper is My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline.

Then of course I had to add some Stickles Star Dust to her dress for sparkle.
I love that stuff.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a fabulous day!

Just for Fun - Alice Mae

I haven't done a Just for Fun card in a while.
I seen this cute image done up on the Pinterest Board and had to get her.
You can find Alice Mae by Some Odd Girl - HERE
I added three brushes to the back ground before I added her and printed her.

*Skin: E21, E00, E000
*Cheeks: R20, R30, E000
*Lips: R05
*Hair & Eyes: E55, E53, E51, E50
*Dress: BG11, BG10
*Socks: C5, C3, C1, C00
*Apron & Shoes: C1, C00
*Shadow: C00, C1, C3, C00

I added the white dots in her eyes with a Sharpie White Paint Pen
Her freckles I added with a 0.05 Black Copic Multiliner.
I'm going to get some different sizes of these I really like it, but I need some thicker ones.

That's it pretty easy.
Just a little bit of color goes a long ways.

Have a fabulous day!
See you tomorrow..

Gone Fishin'...

I thought I would do a couple of boy card kits.
This is Gone Fishin'.
It's perfect for boy cards.
It was hard not to add flowers and frill's..
But I think the buttons give it a perfect guy feel.

See you tomorrow with another boy image.

Lemon Pepper....

Woo Hoo... I managed to finish up the new Whimsy Stamps Elisabeth Bell images.
Before the next release.
This is Lemon Pepper.
Isn't she adorable?
I love the fun and bright Basic Grey paper Picadilly.

How about those cool clouds.
I used a template I found over on Bev Rochester's Blog.
You can find it on her blog All the Things I Love - HERE

I also made up a couple of cloud templates of my own if you would like
to download those to use for your cloud making.
One has smaller puffs and the other has larger puffs.

See you tomorrow.
Have a great day!
