[bright]


[bright], originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Hello there peeps,

I hope that those of you who celebrate the holidays ... that it was great and that you had fun. This holiday was great, Scott and I didn't get to go to Bze to visit my fam so instead it was just the two of us. It was great, and with that some awesome pieces I got, like my fav scarf ... it's warm and colorful. A little something about me, I luv luv black, grey colors for my clothes, I dunno why but I really don't gravitate towards colorful clothing, so when I saw the scarf on sale for 60% off at the Gap store, I bought it (because besides the red, there was some grey on it :)

This page is mostly using the Jenni Bowlin Dec Papercrafting Kit found HERE. A really neat kit, with interesting paper that I'm willing to make stuff with, so fun. A few goodies I found at Archivers and well, thanks to my Slice (Vintage Findings) card, I got to cut out some neat pieces to go with my page ...

Hey there peeps,

Me and Scott would like to wish you a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year ... This holidays there's actually a xmas tree (it's tiny and cute, and we decided that a small one is enough for us, even of we move into a big house in da future, it works, it's us :) and gifts, the mantle is decorated with snowflake garlands and cute little holiday-ish ornaments, the snow men are as adorable as when we first bought them and well, this is as Xmas-y as it gets in our place. I hope you all have a wonderful day and share it with fam and friends. Scott and I are having a lil xmas of our own, since we didn't get to go to Bze for da holidays we thought it would be nice to experience this holiday by ourselves ... it's fun, cozy and wonderful!!!

me remembering events ...


me remembering events ..., originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Hello there peeps,

A very very colorful page of "me" again :D hee, actually I had no better "title" for my page ... this pic is very recent for me since it was just taken yesterday, Scott and I were in downtown Denver and we were taking a few pics of us and of downtown. The page really came out differently than what I initially wanted to do, it happens ... most of the time ... The bright colors started out with Studio Calico Mr Huey mists ... most amazing stuff ever, they dry instantly, no smudges, no waiting, no nothing, perfection really. I highly recommend them if you like mists, and the colors are awesome! Do you like my pink snowflake?? hee, I wanted it to be girly yet not too girly and well, even though its Dec there still hasn't been much snow lately so ... my title should've been somewhere around the lines of " in downtown Denver but where's the snow?" sort of title :) Well, I hope you like the page, it's really pretty and didn't take that long to make...say perhaps less than 30 min or so!

Georgetown DC


Georgetown DC, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Hey there crafty peeps,

If you live in the US, well, Happy Thanksgiving! I'm sure you all stuffed yer tummies till you felt it would burst from all the eating you did, on one sitting! Pretty much the experience on my end here.
I also wanted to share a page with you tonite, one that journals our trip to DC, and our (Scott and I) for Georgetown! It was so busy and full of stores, the row houses so beautifully lined, house after house (some had been turned into business, but the old brick houses still gave their old significance away). It made me think, wow, how was it back in the day, since the town was founded way back in 1751!!!! If you've ever visited, you know what I mean :)
Well, I hope you like the page, I really like the layout and I really enjoyed putting this page together, and so I share it with you :)

Sweetest Holiday Wishes - The Holiday cards are coming :)


Sweetest Holiday Wishes, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

hello there peeps,
Today I'm sharing a card that I made for one of my card stamping get - together for my co-workers at SBux, I thought it would be a great idea to get together and make handmade holiday cards to get to know each other since we're all fairly new to the store. Do you likey? I really like it, so simple yet colorful. I colored the tree branch and ornaments with the few Copic markers that I have :) It's really simple to mass produce and it doesn't take long to make (10-15 mins)

Well, quick post again. Just wanted to share this lovely card with you, and perhaps inspire you to start making yer own :)

DC Farmer's Market, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Helllloooo there peeps,

I know, I've been MIA :( I am so busy now that I'm working and I don't see it slowing down any time soon :( I miss not having to worry about work and just having ample time to scrap or make cards! But, one thing though, it does pay for my crafting stuff, hehe. Today I am sharing a scrap page I did of me on my visit to DC. Yes, there was even a farmer's market right in the smack of the National Monument mall, crazy, it was nice and lovely, and small.
There are a lot of colors on this page, I gambled on it really, not fully sure it they matched at all or if it was just too much patterns. But I like the colors and it popls. Lots of goodies on it as well. I sorta cased this from one of Ali Edwards scrap pages, which you can find HERE. Luved the simple layout and it went well with what I had it mind. Well, that's it, I gots to go now.

Friend, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

hey there peeps,

A card here this Fri evening, brought to you by Embellish Magazine color challenge, what fun colors, which I dunn usually work with but I was inspired by the Vintage theme, and well, I had the perfect die cut to work with. I used my Slice (Vintage Findinds card) to create the bee, and I worked around the bee to make the card. Pretty simple, not sure if they all go together but I like the card ... PTI (Autumn Mix) buttons worked perfectly as well, lots of buttons in rust colors!
Well, not much going in, I work this wkend :S blah! But you know what, i like having $$$ to spend on my crafting addiction, hehe.

My 6th Birthday circa 1991


My 6th Birthday, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

well, for some reason the kiddo pictures of the past have been popping up here and there for me :S Growing up we rarely took pics and well one day, the album with all (there weren't that many) the fam pics got wet due to the hurricane that hit us that yr ... so, there were only a few that survived, and this is one of them ... I scrapped it a while back with my Scrapbook Circle (Oct 2010) Kit, and while chatting with Savitri, she gave me the awesome idea to scrap my kiddo pics if I had any, so voila, how wonderful. Do you like my dress? my pose? hehe, my cake, which you can barely see is of Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs theme, hehe ... the funny thing about this pic which took a long time ago, i actually remember it, it was taken behind my aunt's house, it was just me, my mom and her ... hehe.

Just the 2 of Us!, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Hello there peeps,

It's Thurs and I'm SO glad that today and tomm I get to stay at home after school :) I started working at Starbucks not too far from where I live, and eventhough I luv getting paid, work is just work, lol. Besides being busy with school, I have not really been able to craft much this couple wks, and when I do, I really dunn have the energy to do so :S But this page was done a couple days ago, I found this pic of me and Scott together, so I jumped right into scrapping :) Really, if you haven't already figured it out, I'm not done using my Jenni Bowlin (Aug & Sept) Paper Crafting kits, hehe... I really luv her patterned paper, so yes, I'm slowly but surely using them! This pic was taken about 3yrs ago when Scott and I were in Westwood, CA :) He was on a work trip and I tagged along, and did some sight seeing too, he also went to UCLA so we were really close to the campus, it was fun!

Best Wishes - finally, a card :S


Best Wishes, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

hey there peeps,

If there is anyone out there visiting my blog now and then, let me know, hehe. I have had a bad case of crafter's block and I'm slowly getting my crafting mojo back, it can really be frustrating some times, especially when I really want to use some goodies that I purchase and I just can't seem to get an ounce of creativity!
The card, well I luv it, almost no stamping, but a mere blend of American Crafts Botanique paper that I won not too long ago, the colors are just so beautiful! and used exclusively on this card, save the cardstock, ink and sentiment. I wanted to start with colors, then I slowly built up this grid/squares layout. Beautiful huh? The butterfly punch is the ever popular and classic Martha Stewart butterfly punch I got at Michael's. I think it would be a perfect wedding card, don't you think? I hope more creative thoughts come to me, I really need to start crafting again :)

you're the man - the ultimate guy card!


you're the man, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Hey there peeps,

A guy card here using scraps from Jenni Bowlin, Basic Grey and this Maya Road guy chip board I've been hoarding from who knows when! The sentiment is from Practicing Creativity (You're the man) clear stamps. I really like the splash of blue on the card, but mostly neutral - the total guy card rite? I think so ...
One thing is for sure ... I've learned that if I buy 12"X12" paper, cut it into 8.5"X11" paper, I still have a good amount of paper left to use on my cards, I kill two birds with one stone! so that way, if I really like the paper, I can use it on both scraps and cards! Ditto! :) You likey?

Wedding Wishes - Lawn Fawn Style :)


Wedding Wishes, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Hey there peeps,

A Happy Sun to ya! A card here using my new Lawn Fawn stamps, I got them in the mail on Sat and got right to crafting with them! I used Sophie's Sentiments and Teeny Tiny Backgrounds. Very CAS, I colored some of the tiny hearts in and decorated it with some ribbon. Ribbon, I hardly use it anymore and I have a ton! I'm just hoarding them! So perhaps now my goal is to use as much ribbon as I can, we'll see how it goes.
Also, yesterday was Vcrop day with some of the ladies on the blogging world - basically we get together on a vchat room and we all chat about the craft, family, friends, things we like etc while we are doing some crafting project, very nice way to spend the day! This time I spent some time with Laurel Beard (I was trying to teach her how to tie a nice ribbon :) as well as Sarah Martina Parker and Ashley Cannon Newell, so sweet and nice :) Well, the card is a product of that, I also managed to make 2 scrap pages which will be posted some time soon :)
Well, I hope you have a good rest of yer wkend and let me know what you think of the card!

As you can tell, he's like "oh man, not another pic" even then, we've never liked taking pics, but we're trying, I'm trying to take more pics. You likey? I really like the stars and the buttons. I tried not to make it too girly or have girly accessories on there.

Hey there peeps,

A scrap page this wk, and what a rare one it is!! This pic was taken, seems likes ages ago, at the end of my first semester at CU-Boulder. That's right, way back in 2008! My friends back in the day, decided that we should go "celebrate" my surviving the first semester at college ( I was at a community college before that) and so we did, at a local hang eatery near school. She caught me off guard and well, I was enjoying my Long Island Iced Tea :) The scrap, almost all of the goodies are from the Jenni Bowlin (Sept 2010) Papercrafting Kit! luv luv all the goodies and I tried using most of them on this scrap!

Hello there peeps,

A card here for ya, I haven't made a bday card in a while, or so it seems. The card has a lot of goodies, mainly AC Botanique paper that I won via MFW, I was so happy with my prize, I really like the collection and such beautiful patterns. I'm slowly using it :) Do take part in their challenges, Cath is so nice and always has great prizes in store for da winner :D This card is very girly and springy too - the colors remind me of spring. Well, short post today, not much going on except for class, and class work, boo! Often times I wish I went to Brown University, they are so progressive, in that you can take any class pass/fail and there are no core requirements, you only take classes you actually want to take, hehe, wouldn't that be nice? I read that HERE. But it's nice to know that my school is in a town named the best college town, hehe, post HERE. When you go to college you always wonder how good yours is ranked to others, and in what way. But who knows if this info is actually right, but anyhoot, it's always food for thought :)

Yesterday we cleaned our place, it was a mess, and most of it caused by me! Yes, with school starting and books everywhere, I just spread all my stuff out in the leaving area and well, it gets messy. Since I was in a cleaning mood I decided to clean and re-organize my craft area! pheww, it was a mess too and trying to shift things around in the little space that I have was a challenge! So the pm when I came into the spare bedroom/ craft area, it looked so nice that I took a picture! See how clean and organized? :) Well, the page I really like, especially the buttons with the number stickers saying 24-7. Very CAS, just the way I like, the colors were inspired from The Color Room Palette #22.

Adore, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Hey there peeps,

A Wednesday card here for ya, very Jenni Bowlin, very vintage, most of the goodies are from her. The paper comes from her Aug 2010 kit, it was my first time buying a kit from her, such awesome goodies and paper, she does have a unique sense of style that I am starting to like :) Are you wondering about the die cut flower? Well, I got a Slice (Making Memories die cut machine) this wkend, it was on sale at Michael's, what a deal, and what a wonderful machine!!! It's tiny and portable, perfect for me, I have limited craft space so being small is a plus! you can cut anywhere from 1"-4" perfect for the card maker/ scrapper! Let me tell you, it's SO easy to use, you do need a special type of adhesive to keep the paper in place on the glass cutting mat (comes with the kit). Especially if you want to cut intricate images! You likey? let me know! I'm so happy with it!

Vintage Happy Anniversary


Vintage Happy Anniversary, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Hey there peeps,

This wk went by so darn fast, the wkend is already here! First week of classes and bam, already gone! I guess it's a good thing rite? :D Well, the card here is a product of Basic Grey (Jovial) paper collection that just came out, it's their holiday paper available at Archivers, hehe. The theme here is vintage, not sure if it fits the category quite well, but the card is so elegant looking, and the handmade paper flower with the doily I think gives it that impression. The flower was inspired by Danielle Flanders' card HERE. Her flower was gorgeous and therefore made my own :) Let me know what you think, you likey? I showed it to the hubby and he said it was too plaid ... too Alaskan like, lol, I was like O-K :S

Napa '07


Napa '07, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Hey there peeps,

Another scrap page here for ya today, this one is made for the American Crafts Challenge - make a 2 page layout using 2 or more AC products. Honestly, I had no idea how I'd pull this one off, being my first 2 pg layout and all. I started out with different colors, and finally ended up with the above. I really like it though, totally my style, simple yet the colors make it pop. This scrap is from our visit to Wine Country in Napa, CA in '07. It was one of THE best places we've ever visited hands down. Most of the layout is AC goodies, safe the paper, mist and rhinestones, the rest is AC products. Last wkend of fun, school starts on Mon.

Hey there peeps,

A scrap here for ya today, all thanks to my friend Savitri and The Color Room sketch #18. Haven't scrapped much since last Sat, so when I saw what Savitri made with the sketch and colors ... I had to join in! To be honest I had no clue about how I would play with the colors ... I thought, hmm...not really my colors at once, but I luved how it turned out! I really like the flowers (been hoarding them for a while now) and all the different punched I used, so fun and totally challenged me to stick to a sketch :) Let me know what you think!

BTW: be on the lookout here on my blog tomm, a surprise you'll want to be a part of :)

Peace and Love


Peace and Love, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Hey there peeps,

A card here for Moxie Fab World's "Signs of Peace" Challenge. I was blogging around and ended up at their site, was scrolling down their blog and saw their challenge... I saw this distress ink effect (here) at Studio Calico blog and the light bulb lit up! I used this blending tech to give the tie-dye look to the card, I totally like how it turned out! It so fits the groovy, peace, 1970s period :) You likey? This is a perfect way to use yer distress inks, multiple inks at once :) so, if you have any around in yer craft pile, do use them, it;s fun :) Besides that, not much going on, spending some quality time at home, relaxing and looking for PT jobs for da fall season :)

Together Page - American Crafts Button Challenge


Together, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Hey there peeps,

It's Fri and the wkend is upon us. Today I bring you another scrap page, at this point you may be wondering whether I've transitioned into a full time scrap booker, which is understandable. But no, I am still very much a card maker, at this moment I really like the idea trying to minimize the "pile" of goodies I've managed to accumulate in 3 years. Scrap booking does that. Anyhoot, the page fits this wk's American Crafts button challenge, how wonderful, the page put together by AC goodies as well as BG goodies :) Let me know what you think, the thing with Scott and I is that we dunn like taking pics much so when we do, we're not in it together, hehe.

Hey there peeps,

A scrap page here for ya this wkend. Well, some of the goodies on this scrap page come from the scrap supplies that
CARDS magazine sent me for getting published through them :) It makes me heart smile, they sent me a Studio Calico scrap kit and I loved it! Oh, how I was happy, hehe. I'm a big fan of SC, although I don't get to buy much stuff from them, I really like their style and kits. Well, the page is of me, I wish I had a pic of me crafting but I didn't so I improvised, hehe, you likey? I really didn't want to add much to the page since I really liked the paper. The girly stamp you ask? yes, from SC as well, you can find it HERE.

AZ Vacation Scrap Page

Hey there peeps,

I hope you are having a wonderful wkend, today, here in CO is really really hot, it's seriously in da 100s! So, I'm in doors trying not to go out much. A scrap here today, it's from our visit to a spa resort- Miraval in da summer of 2009. Scott and I really want to go back again, it was wonderful. Well, the page has a lot of misting and distress inks, I'm obsessed with both! The butterfly is dabbed with distress ink, then before I stamped it, I sprayed some clear mist to give it some extra sparkle. You can't see it on the pic but it gives a really great effect :) Speaking of hot, it was hot in AZ as well, except we were in doors enjoying a nice massage, hehe.

hey there peeps,

A scrap page here for ya! I'm totally loving the soft colors on this page, I really like the hints of pastel yellow colors popping out of the page, combined with soft blue colors :) hehe Well, this page is from our last recent hike to Golden Gate Canyon State Park in Golden, CO. It's one of the most beautiful parks I've hiked near the Denver Metro Area. The trails are surrounded by tall aspen trees and wild flowers, such a great hike! At the end of the Horshoe Trail that Scott and I were on, there's a meadow. I highly recommend this trail for people who want to give hiking a try, perfect for a beginner... If you ever come to CO to visit :) Well, the page is pretty much simple but lots of cool stuff on it. I luv it!
