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.

The other embellishment made out of pure curiosity was the tab using SU! Tab punch and a cup sleeve from my Starbucks beverage this am. Well, luving the SC page, full of color :)

Self Scrap Page

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.

I really really like the paper, lovely dotted paper with awesome colors. The ribbon? Well my good blog friend Angie passed it on to me, hehe, I told her I was use it in a project I get to keep :) Thanks Angie! Well, the page is a tad bit artsy, I really had no idea how this page would turn out and I just went with it, I like it :) Well, that's it for today, not much going on here, I can't believe the summer semester is almost over, just 2 more wks, yikes!

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.

I drew my inspiration from the yellow from the flowers, right now, that is my fav color to work on my cards :) There's also hints of colors as well, just like on the jars from the inspiration photo. The butterfly on the card has Stickles to it, for some extra shine :) Let me know what you think! And I hope that you all had an amazing wkend!

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!

Congrats On Your New Home

Hello there peeps,

Another blog post for ya! This time it's a card! yes a card :) I made this one about a wk ago and didn't take a picture of it until just recently. Well, the stamp is by HA - their village wood stamp that come out not too long ago. Really cute but I didn't like the way it stamped so I took it back. Has that happened to you before? Get a stamp and find out that it's not what you expected? Well, I got to using my Copic markers as well, I painted some of the houses and roofs, cute! And the sentiment, well that's Lawn Fawn stamps, so cool, their stamp set - Harold's ABC, are a most have set, very very versatile and the font is unique :)
