Blog Candy Continued!

Please do not forget to scroll down to see the blog candy!This ensamble took me 4 hours to make but I had so much fun. I just got this Pop-Up stamp and I was dying to use it. It was easier than I thought but time consuming because the pop-up is 3 layers high and I needed to fill each layer. I love the way it turned out.

I figured this cannot be mailed in an envelope so I decided to make a box for it.
I used copic markers and I air brushed the inside background. Wow, what a stuning result. The outside lily flower I had made a few days ago using Spellbinders and was not sure how I was going to use it.
You can find this set in my Etsy Shop!

Thank you cards for Baby Girl Christening!

My baby girl is now 6 months old and we just had her christened in NJ.  While we were there we saw many good friends and family.  I am in the process of making the Thank you cards.  I have attach a few for you to see.  Please let me know what you think.  Many of the cards I made are uniform but I chose to make a few different ones like the cute Tilda you see here.  You can find more Magnolia Tilda and friends stamps Here! Look for more of  my cards in My Etsy Shop.

I also love olives so I made this card with my new Olive stamp I got.  I will use it as a thank you for your hospitality card.
Here are more Thank you cards using Spellbinders dies.

Here is another class kit you can find at Creative Design Boutique. I have 3 girls so it is very natural for me to think soft, pink and Chic so I Created this layout. I love making purses as I have mentioned before. I wanted to use folds so I box pleated the paper then decided I can use it as a pleated skirt. And, what Fashionista does not need a matching purse. This purse opens to hold some of your favorite memorabilia. The layout is doused with flowers to give it that extra fashion flair.

Page 1 of the layout fashion pleated shirt with top.  Photo Mats can be repositioned any way you like.

Page 2 of Layout

The Purse Opens up to hold Memorabilia.

The Photo mats can be arranged any way you'd like. You can even position the photo mats in the purse if you'd like.

You can find the kit in my web Shop or in my Etsy Shop.

If you want to order the layout already put together you can also find that in my Etsy Shop here!

Elegant Card Gift Set for a Very Special Person!

I am going to see my 6th Grade teacher this weekend during my Baby Girl's Christening. I have kept in touch with her all these years and she is a wonderful person. She and her husband will be video taping the entire event so I wanted to make her a special thank you gift. I love this set and its a way of making elegant quick cards. I love the way they turned out.  See more elegant cards like this in my Etsy Shop.

Humming Bird

I made this card by coloring on the stamp and used my copics to add more shading. I have not done this technique for a while, It was fun. I wanted to color the image but when I stamped it, it was already pretty darkly filled in. I love the way it turned out. Please check out more of my creation in my Etsy Shop.

Designer Hand Bags

I made these as favors for my daugthers Christening favor.  They were inspired by my recent trip to Paris with my family this summer.  We went to the Louis Vuitton Shop.  That was one of our high lights of the trip.

Welcome to My blog!

Hi All.

I am so excited, I just finished designing my blog.  Please leave a comment with your email and let me know what you think.  I have never done a BLOG CANDY before but look out for one in the very near future.  As for now, who ever leaves me constructive comment about my blog will go into a drawing and will win a bunch of craft supplies this is an informal BLOG CANDY.

More news:  I Just opened a new Etsy Shop and listed many handcrafted items.  Please check it out and let me know what you think.  I have cards, handmde flowers, card kits, purse making kits and much more.

Now on a more sad note:  My brother had a very bad accident 2 weeks ago in CA and he is in Critical care.  I found out today that he had been taken off the resperator but can not speak yet and is not fully alert.  The nurse said he should get better my Thanksgiving.  Please remember him in your prayers.  I will continue to give updates on his condition.  I made the following card in his honor and I wrote the following poem.
"I shall use my strength, hope and faith to overcome my fears and I must show courage to my Loving family and friends to help support them during these trying times. In this my determination is crucial to survive."
