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?

at the rally, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Hello there peeps,

It's Mon and a new wk! Time flies when yer having fun! Today brings a scrap page I did on Sat during the VCrop with the awesome ladies of the blogger/crafting world :) I really like this page for two reasons, the design and the letters stickers that pop out! Luv the green color! What rally you ask? This pic was taken wayyy back in '08, when Michelle Obama came to speak at CU-Boulder, my school, I was so excited cuz I had never witnessed any kind of event like this, the mood was there, the young people, old people, came together, it was fun and Michelle Obama was awesome, I even got to shake her hand! :) Well, anyhoot, I really hope you have a great wk, there's another layout to come soon from the VCrop ... Let me know what you think. The design is pretty simple and fun, and of course Jenni Bowlin (Aug, Sept) scrap kits are used on this page, JB still going strong :)

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!

Scotty Boy - Scrap Page


Scotty Boy, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Well, I gotta tell you, this Jenni Bowlin (sept 2010) paper crafting kit is really a treat for me! I actually have ideas and want to scrap! I luv it! This one is of Scott boy - the hubby. This was taken a while ago, there's a local bbq park not too far from where we live and so we always went to bbq during the summer. 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.

Rare Pic on a Scrap Page :S


Rare Pic, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

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! Very CAS, just the way I like! Has a very christmas-y feel to it, the colors. Let me know what you think!

Happy Bday


Happy Bday, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

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 :)

Craft Space - Where my craft magic happens :)



Craft Space, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Hello there peeps,

I hope you are having a wonderful wkend, the hubby and I sure are! If yer in the US then we all have a 3 day wkend, how nice! 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.
Well, let me know what you think!

A bigger pic of my craft area :) All clean!!!

Adore


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!
