I love MDS!!! I love that I can create a beautiful page in minutes. I love to scrap the traditional way as well. But when you only have a short amount of time. It also helps me to choose what pictures to print out and weed out the ones I won't use.
With new updates for the program every month you can have all the fun new items for your computer too.
I like that it is on my laptop, so it can go when I do.
Gearing up for a busy Natal Day weekend here, so that means more pictures to scrap.
Enjoy your Friday.

This is made with the new set Just Believe. It is a beautiful and versitile set. It is also my favorite new catalogue set. I coloured the image with markers and stamped it on white card stock. I cut it out and used dimentionals to pop it off the card.
The colours used were real red, so saffron, old olive and piroette pink.
I used the en franciase background and ran it through the big shot with a texture plate.
I love my big shot and don't know how I would get along with out it.
I am hoping to be able to get back to crafting and be able to share some new projects with you over the weekend.
Have a stampy day!

I just recieved my first New Catalogue order on Friday and got some wonderful new items to play with.
I love the DSP called Love Letters. The simple colour combination of Riding Hood Red, Basic Black and very Vanilla is so pretty and vintage.
I am busy trying to get ready for Young Womens camp in August. We all have to have pixie pal gifts so I am making all mine. I will have another adult leader to give to. I will be sharing my projects through the next week.
I need to get more of these books they are so much fun to decorate.
Have a happy Monday!!!

I found this colour challenge at Always Playing with Paper .

Again not likely a colour combo I would put together. LOL But now I am a huge fan of Pacific Point. Here it is paired with Bashful Blue and Old Olive.

I absolutely love this stamp set. I can't wait to play with it again.
I find with the new colour renovation complete, I am so much more inclined to branch out and try more colours than my tried and true combo's.
Of course I feel blessed that in the reno I only lost one of my favorite colours and that was pale plum. (But I stocked up. LOL
Enjoy!! I actually am going to stamp today.

CCMC 107
Posted by PicasaI love this card that I made using the CCMC 107 colour challenge. I love it because, I would have never in a million years put these colours together and I love it!!!!!!
We have real red, pink pirouette, old olive and so saffron.
The stamp set is new and I just got it in the mail this past week. It is called Just Believe item number 120453 (clear mount).
I hand coloured the stamps with marker to get the 2 coloured image. I just totally loved this card, and my mojo fell right into place. I have had a wicked case of stampers block. I just hope it wasn't the late night crafting session. I love my sleep. Maybe it was a break from this heat...thankfully.
But I think I was inspired by these beautiful colours, I really love the colour renovation and am happy to have such beautiful easy to coordinate colours available to me.

I made this card using a colour combo from the Colour Coach. The combo is Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Daffodil Delight. I also used a texture plate (friends). I also used the big daisy. I love to be able to make my own flowers. I love the flowers that you can get but I find they never go with my project. Very pretty but just not the right colour. So if i have the technology to make my own it is way better. :)

I love my punches and I LOVE my BIG SHOT!!!!!!! So much fun to play with. I have a bunch of things to do today but.....since it is raining I might go and see what else I can create!

Have a crafty day!

This is a sketch design that I found over on Create with Connie and Mary, I really love to play along with sketch challenges. For the friends card I used a combo of Sahara Sand , Pink Pirouette and Bashful Blue. I used the Lattice embossing folder as well as the new Large scallop circle punch. I like how soft and pretty this card turned out.

For this card I used Baja Breeze, Pink Pirouette and Early Espresso. The buttons are retired but in the Baja Breeze colour. Another item I hoarded but didn't use. I have got to stop that and use my pretties before they retire. LOL I used a texture plate for the back ground piece. I love the texture plates....note to self use them more!

The flower is made using the large and regular scallop punches. You punch 2 of each size and glue dot them together and cut down each scallop to about 1/2 inch from the center. I then used a flower from the Boho blossoms punch and did the same thing. I punched a hole through the centers and topped it off with a crystal brad. Really cute and easy.

I found the instructions for this on the blog Dostamping with Dawn. Thanks for the inspiration.

This is the new colour coach item number 121620.
It is a wonderful new tool. It has all the colours on the front of the card with colour combo suggestions to get you started. It also has blank cards for you to fill in your own combos. It is small enough to fit in a purse so you can take it with you if you are shopping for colour related items.
I really enjoy having this new tool. Ask to see it at the next party.
Have a colourful day!

It's here at last...... the new IB&C!!!!! It is bigger, more beautiful and betterer (yes that's a word) than any catalogue before it. I have had rave reviews from those who have already witnessed it's beauty. The biggest complaint was that the wish lists weren't big enough!
Here is my 10 Must Have List
  1. 120531 The Nicest Things 17.95 page 71
  2. 119874 Decore wheel 7.95 page 133
