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

Hey there peeps,

A card here for ya this pm. I am playing along with Embellish Magazine challenge, just right up on my alley!!! I came up with this cute mini card using Lawn Fawn stamps - Sew Lovely set, how appropriate for what I had in mind. Really clean and simple ... and quirky :) I cut out the tiny flowers to dress up mu pocket and thought it a neat idea to pop out the sentiment out of the pocket! I really like how it turned out, let me know what you think! School starts tomm for me, excited yet relieved, it's safe to say it's my last semester :) yey!

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 :)
