As you can see...I've changed the look for my blog! This digital paper I am fairly sure I paid for at PickleBerryBop (or Pop!!LOL). Someone correct me if I'm wrong. LOL
I have so many and tend to forget where I get them or who they are by if I dont include it in the title when I save it.
I was ready for a change...something summer-y. Hope you like it.I need to change the photo now, as it does not really match. Leave me a comment if you have time and let me know if you like the changes or not.(just click on comment at the end of this post, it will do the rest.)

I did get something else accomplished tonight. My sweet neighbor and I were talking about die-cutting machine's, punches and all the other goodies you can buy out there. I mentioned how I am still on the hunt for something that is fast, easy and affordable for cutting circles. So she (being how sweet she is) brings over the Creative Memories Custom Cutting System for me to play with. I hooked! I only played with the circles (though she had to have every template ever made for it!) And I just loved it. It was so easy to cut a circle! I finally got a chance to play with it tonight and here is the layout I made with it.
My DD finally got the hang of hoola hooping this spring and I loved these photo's of her. She loved that there looked like there were a bunch of hoola hoops on the page!!
Enjoy your weekend coming up!

Unmounting Wood Stamps

I have no wood mounted stamps in my house!
Once, a long long time ago, I was a Stampin Up demo. I had over 100 set's! Once, long long ago, I went on ebay and sold EVERY one of my set's except 2 alpha set's!!

I needed a break from crafting for a while. The past year, I stuck my foot back in the water, thinking I would just take a little dip and test the water. Little did I know I'd be diving from the high dive in a matter of months!

So here I am, back doing what I love. I still love Stampin Up stamps. Even though I now sell Close To My Heart. Every company has something to offer. My mom was recently a hostess to her Stampin Up Stamp club and I ordered a set off of her. I dont mount my SU set's on the wood however. I found an awsome tutorial on this blog:

(just copy and paste) and never looked back!
It works like a charm for me, and now I am not afraid to buy a set I won't use.
Hope you find what you are looking for in the crafting world. There is something for everyone.

WorldWide Stamping Weekend

I was able to play a little today in my craft room, making some things for the WorldWide Stampin weekend at TwoPeasInaBucket!
Here is a card I made for the Masculine Challenge. We had to make a card that was geared for a guy.

This card was for the Solid FLower Challenge. We had to make a card using a solid flower. Easy enought! LOL I did some *kissing* on the solid flower to alter the image a bit.

This card I made for the vellum challenge. I stamped my Rusty Pickle gals on the vellum. I then used the chalks and colored the gals from the opposite side of the vellum.

This last card if my absolute FAV!! I did this one for the Bella Challenge. We had to make a card using our bellas! I really liked how this one turned out.
Enjoy the cards...won't be around much tomorrow....
