Go CU!


Go CU!
Originally uploaded by CloudsShadler
Hello there peeps, another page for ya, honestly, I dunno where all this creativity is coming from, hehe. This scrap was made with AC Thickers in mind, often I browse through American Crafts blog and some times there are challenges I would really like to play to but I dunn have time. This time I did and I went for it. Funny story about this page, it took me forever to get it done, and the base paper was this green pp that was way to bright and didn't go with all the colors, so what did I do? I cut it our of the green paper with heart and pic and taped it to a better looking one! I like the page more and more, so cute and full of colors. The heart, well I luv my college - University of Colorado at Boulder and I luv the hubby, so a heart seemed appropriate. Hope you like it, I hope tomm I can post a card for ya ;o) Thanks so much for the encouragement I've gotten from all you ladies who come by my blog, I really appreciate it, gracias! Well, that's it for now :)

Another Scrap Page!


NYC '09
Originally uploaded by CloudsShadler
hello there peeps,

So first up, I just wanted to say that my blog is not going to turn into a scrap booking only blog, lol. Just in case yer wondering :) This is my second scrap in a row, I luv this one too, luv the splash of color amongst the black and white pic of Scotty boy and the patterned paper. We visited NYC last yr for thanksgiving and we got to visit tons more place while in the city that we didn't get to do the last time we visited (did I say visited twice in one sentence, oh well, I can't write, sorry). I went digging into my pile of goodies and found the most appropriate skyline sticker for this page, so cool. Someday, I'd like to live there and experience the city life. Let me know what you think. I'm on a roll here, there might just be another page coming soon, hehe, or perhaps a card :)

dine al fresco




Ladies,

I've made a break through into the world of scrapbooking!! Yey!! I finally got the guts to venture out into scrapping and I did it! hehe, This is a layout I absolutely love and am proud of. Seriously, it took me a lot of thought and organizing to get it done. The theme of the page is dining al fresco, under the stars and in the summer :) (hehe) You like it? Are you proud of me? :) I did not buy a single item on this page, it all comes from the pile of goodies I've been hoarding for who knows how long. If you notice, there's a lot of stamping going on, I had to start there, lol :) So, who else to scrap for but for the hubby, he's the only person I can scrap for right now. I am hoping I can scrap for my nephews when we visit the fam in December for the Holidays :) Let me know what you like about the page, I'm interested to know if all you scrap bookers out there approve of my page, hehe :) The tiny umbrella? Well it rained on us :S go figure!

Hey there peeps,
A quick post again today, I quickly wanted to share this card, showcasing the new BG "Olivia" paper that I found at Archivers. Really cute patterns, lots of cute accessories (which I didn't get, the paper seemed more appealing to me :) lots of great possibilities with this paper, so darn cute. I used my SU! big flowers die for the larger flower. So very CAS, lots of goodies on the card, I really like the pennant stamp by Practicing Creativity as well :)

Well, I'm off to hike again today, also, the US is playing against Ghana as I type, hopefully we'll win (World Cup Soccer) :) Are any of you watching the US play in this yr's World Cup? Let me know!

EBTKS Sketch Challenge #17


Wish Big!
Originally uploaded by CloudsShadler
Hello there peeps,

A card here today using EBTKS Sketch Challenge #17, easy sketch to work with, tons of possibilities :) I made a birthday card using Lawn Fawn stamps and Digi Kit elements, so cute. Recently I've been trying to expand my collection of Copic markers, and let me tell you, they are a bit on the expensive side so it'll take a while, hehe. But I wanted to use the ones that I bought so I made this card, the flower and bee are colored in :) I also used one of my fav stamp sets by Lawn Fawn because I can make my own background, and it's SO easy to do! At any rate, I was really inspired by the sketch this wk so hence my card :)

Let me know what you think!

Hello there peeps,
Today I bring some goodies to share with you! I have some time this wk to enjoy and I decided to spend it doing some craftiness :) A while back I told ya that I can crochet here and there, well, I had bought a bunch of different colored thread to make them and made some more today. They're quite easy to make. To be honest, I make them but I can't decide on which cards to use them so I figured, why not make some and put it up for grabs on my blog? ding ding ding :) the tiny rose you see on top of the dark pink flower, I made that as well using cream felt and running it through my die cutting machine, I used the small scalloped die from PTI. I adhered it to a paper flower I had lying around and voila, cuteness! The other paper flowers are from Prima Marketing. Well, all you have to do is leave a message on this post. All I ask is that you promise to use them on yer cards or scrap pages, just pretty much USE them, hehe. So if ya know yer gunna use them just go ahead and leave a comment :) You have until Fri the 18th at 5p, with the winner posted shortly. Thanks so much for visiting my blog, I really appreciate all the lovely comments and the time you take to come by my blog, GRACIAS!

Well, good luck!

Happy Anniversary

Hey there peeps,
I'm back with a card this wk, so much happened last wk that I really had no time to post, made some cards but posting just didn't happen. But today I wanted to share a card I made last wk, beautiful really. The flowers just pop out and the color red is so bright and bold, luv it. The leaves stamp I got at Michael's for real cheap, they are by G Studio and they stamp real well, they are cling rubber stamps, check them out the next time you visit yer local Michael's. And yes, you will see this Stampendous definition background stamp a lot, I've gotten addicted to this cling stamp and I want to use it for everything!
Well, I hope you have a good wk ahead, short wk actually! Yey! Let me know what you think of the card!
