I saw this on another blog but I forgot to write down who! If this darling mummy card was yours origiopnally, I am sorry I didn't give you props! But everyone loved it!
This one (the horrible picture) was done with the faux postage stamp technique. The girls were a little scared at first but when they saw how easy it was they jumped right in and loved it!
This one came to be because I had ordered too much Pumpkin pie CS! Again, everyone used a different sentiment!
So, if you like what you see and would like to join us for our next Stamp a Stack, it will be on November 9 and we will be doing ALL Holiday/Seasonal ones! Please RSVP to me or Toni!

First is the stamped candle, I know, you saw this already but here it is again! With it are a covered matchbox and coaster.
Next is an a multi-purpose box. I say multi-purpose because it can fit a gift card, jewelry, set of greeting cards (4/14 X 5 1/2) or any other small item. This is a side view...
Next is a set of 4 tile coasters. This snowglobe set is awesome! There is cork on the back too so you won't ruin any tabletops!
So, that's it! I hope to get a lot of you to come out on December 2nd for this fun workshop! No experience or supplies necessary! Please e-mail or call for more info...

I was chosen to be a Guest Designer on one of my favorite blogs...Bitten by the Bug. It's a blog dedicated to the Cricut and all it's little family members! Check out the site for an awesome contest to win a Cuttlekids machine! Yes, it is a die cut machine for kids! How cute! You so need to add this blog to your daily haunts...Regina has such an awesome gallery and design team!
The first challenge I participated in was to use the George cartridge to make this Monogram card. I finally got to use some of my newest Basic Grey paper (Perhaps) and went for a simple look. Added SU Purely Pomegranate CS, true thyme, WW, some purplish mesh, primas, eyelets and VIOLA!
We'll be having a Stamp a Stack on October 19th, so I promise to post those up here soon. And of course, I am a guest designer for the month so I'll be getting a new challenge every week...I soooo can't wait to show you! Thanks for looking everyone! XOXO

Here is her link with pictures
and directions but without pictures...
"I developed this technique about 10 years ago. I had wanted an NON-uniform look of mottled color and got this effect! Wow!This technique is very easy. You will need:5-10 sheets of Glossy Card StockSpray bottle of WATERReinkers (I used Tempting Turquoise and Close to Cocoa)Newspapers or covering for your work arearubber gloves (until you get the hang of this...!)First, SPRAY the "Base Sheet" with water.Next INK by dribbling reinkers onto the sheet..Next, SPRAY a "pressing sheet" with water.Then, SMASH the pressing sheet onto the base sheet.Use PRESSURE!Pull the sheets apart and start again with a NEW pressing sheet.SPRAY the new pressing sheet and Smash it onto the base sheet.You can do this up to 10 times and get variations on the colors. This makes AWESOME background paper!"

This was my first attempt with Baroque Basics...I kept it without a sentiment so the girls could use it for almost any occasion.
This one used the Cuttlebug embossing folder, then we sanded the top to make the distressed look. I always love red, white and black together!
Thanks for Looking! More to come!

This is also from a TLC kit, the title is done with Cricut Stamped cartridge and the stamps are Technique Tuesday. The tag behind the last picture has journaling.
The paper for this one is Close to my Heart, white "talk" letters are MM, and other title letters done on my Cricut with the Jasmine cartridge.
And, since I showed my cousin this already, here is a box I altered for her to use for envelopes at the wedding. I found this velvet paper in Michael's and the black paper also...The birdies I just thougt were cute but they can come off... It's really cool IRL

1. I was a Paramedic in Manhattan for 8 years, in Harlem and Washington Heights (and yes, I was there on 9/11) .
2. Me and my DH met originally in 1998 but I ignored him for a year (I had a rule never to date a cop, which he was), then gave in and after one date I knew I would marry him...we were engaged 6 months later!
3. When I was first pregnant and were thinking of names we secretly hoped it would be twins, a boy and a girl we were going to name Luke and Leia (me and DH are super BIG Star Wars freaks).
4. I totally hate my first scrapbook and want to re-do it (but haven't because other people have said "isn't it cool to see how you have evolved in your art?"- yeah but I still hate it!)5. I went to Catholic School for 12 years and 4 of them were an all-girls school!
6. I am scuba certified, but haven't been diving since my honeymoon 6 years ago...sad, sad, sad!7. I am a die hard Barry Manilow fan...I've seen him in concert about 15 times (don't tell anyone, ok?)
So that was pretty painless...the problem is taggin people who haven't been tagged yet...I'll have to go fishin' tomorrow! For now have a few laughs and I'll be back later!Oh and just because I can't leave you hanging with no pretty pictures to look at.....here's some:
This mini album was made with an actual pair of flip flops! We will be making this in one of our August craft days so stay tuned!
