hello craft-friend!


hello craft-friend!, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

hello there peeps,

Another wkend and another post, this one here is using Jenni Bowlin (April 2011) Paper-Crafting Kit, such amazing goodies and wonderful colors to work with :)

Can you tell who that is with me in the pic? hint - she's an amazing crafter and I luv her Watch-Me-Weds videos :) She is the third blogger-craft friend I've met in person, and she's wonderful! It's always nice to meet fellow craft friends since we share a common hobby and so there's plenty to talk about :) You can find here blog HERE.

The page is fairly simple and sweet, lots of layering and misting ... misting is something I try to do once in a while, it's a nice effect to add to a project and much like this one, if you have a cool stencil to use, it really does add dimension! Do you like my polaroid frame? super easy to make ... (still working on that video tut for you) ...

Well, I hope yer wkend went well, not much going on here ... French class is almost over and there will be more time to craft once it's over!

Take it easy,
C :)

hello there peeps,

A card here for you today, this one is made using Jenni Bowlin (April 2011) Papercrafting Kit, and oh my my my ... it's absolutely gorgeous! I think this is one of their best kits since I signed up with them, every color and paper blends so well, with hints of boldness, it's perfection!!! The kit came yesterday and it made my heart sing :) So, I opened it and instantly started to think of the many projects i could make with it! This card is the first of many ... very CAS

well, quick post, and I hope you like the card and that you have a great wkend! we are off to see a movie ...

Take it easy,
C :)

Hello there peeps,

A card here today, I'm totally luving my Studio Calico add-on kit, I keep using the paper and have officially gotten my $$$ worth for sure! The flower is from my stash and butterfly cut out are from my Slice and Martha Stewart punch. The polaroid, well, it's very easy to make and I made it using a square punch and yer paper trimmer. (hopefully I can make a tut of this ...)

So, I hope you like, I really like how it turned out and I enjoy layering pieces right now, paper, embellies ... goodness!

One last thing, I've upgraded my Flickr account (I've been putting this off for a while and finally caved in since I was running out of space) I got to re-organize my shtuff ... and you'll be happy to know that it's very easy to browse my projects - two main sets: cards and scrap pages, easy ... on those two sets you'll find all the cards and pages I've made since using Flickr and all grouped together and easy to find!

Take it easy,
Clouds :)

hello there peeps,

What a wk! it's been crazy around my neck of the woods, again, work and juggling free time, and french! But anywhos, no one wants to here how one's life is soooo busy :S

The scrap page is a product of Studio Calico (Moses Supposes) 2011 Add-On Kit. To be honest, I was upset at SC for a bit - thing is I usually join their chat during reveal nite and a couple times I've tried to purchase their kit and apparently since I'm not lighting speed fast, someone "steals" my kit from my cart - not happy about it! Especially when I plan on interacting on their chat and do the count down. So, this time i was lucky to get the add-on kit I wanted and I got it. But, my point is ... it shouldn't be that way .... This is not to say that I dislike SC or that I will never buy from them, it's just me being frustrated at times :S

Oh well, the page is ALL Studio Calico, minus the paper and staples ... Luv the CAS easy to make page, the papers are plenty for color! I hope you like and well, I hope you have a great wkend!

Take it easy,
C :)

Daily Snippets of Me


Daily Snippets of Me, originally uploaded by CloudsShadler.

Hello there peeps,

I hope yer wkend is going well. I know I haven't been posting much, that being a result of trying to work full time hours and juggling french class ... I'm really trying to squeeze craft time! The scrap page is of me, sometimes I take a few pics here and there on my iPhone, and yes, this is my desperate need to actually have pics to scrap book :S (not a picture person) My friend recently told me that I'm so serious on my pics, yes, I don't like to smile! Smiling is a weird concept for me, at least when taking pics :S I hope you like the page, it's pretty quick and easy to assemble, this might just be my go-to-sketch! Most of this page was made using my go-to-kits ... Jenni Bowlin!

Have a great rest of the wkend,
C
