Just a quick reminder to go to SheetLoad tomorrow to get the August issue. The sneak peaks look fabulous!!!

Graduation Card

So as I prepare for 4 days in fabulous Tampa, FL to attend my brother's graduation party I took the opportunity to play with my new Nestabilities & Quickutz font. I LOVE THEM BOTH!!!! I simply embossed the card with the largest square die in a dark silver cardstock and cut the letters out of a lighter silver. I then used foam tape to adhere to the card front. The finished size is 5.5"x5.5". Now I'm off to pack my clothes!

2 Sketches 4 You

Here's my take on this weeks sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You. At first I wasn't so sure about this sketch, but I think this turned out really cute! The cherries, Quickutz, are raised with pop dots and I used a glaze pen for the center of the white flowers. Did you also get the sentiment? "Cheri"sh ;)

CTMH White Daisy - Chalkboard Technique

So have I mentioned how much I LOVE the CTMH White Daisy ink pad? So here's a card I made this weekend using the "Chalkboard" technique.
The "Chalkboard" technique: ink your stamp in CTMH White Daisy and stamp your image. While the ink is still wet dab your chalk over the image. On other blogs I saw it suggested swipping a Swiffer cloth once complete to wipe away any extra chalk on your card stock or spray with a krylon type sealer. This turned out really well!
Also sharing a cute make & take from Lil' Scrappers. It's a mini album made out of coasters. Where you see the popsicles in the inside unties to reveal places for journaling & pictures.

It's finally done!!!!

So I promised Reanne a big girl room for her 5th birthday. I found the bedding at Bed Bath & Beyond and the rest was history. I am tickled pink... literally, about how this room turned out. (I think I want to move in). Thanks to my SIL for the dresser and her sister for the bed and night stand. Couple of time savers I used. I purchase the Target brand closet organizers for the area between the window & the closet. They fit perfectly. I painted photo boxes for storage in the cubes and used a shoe organizer on the back of the door for all those stuffed animals. I am so glad this is done and just love how it turned out. Almost wish I was 5 again........ If the slide show doesn't load, click on View All Images to view.

Close to my Heart

Ok when I find a great product I've got to shout it from the roof tops. Are you ready? ..... I have found THE perfect white ink pad - Close to my Heart White Daisy. It is fantastic!!! It has great coverage, i can't say enough how great it is. So after I tried Melissa's white ink pad, I had her pull out the other colors she had. let's just say I was able to walk away with the stamp of the month for free!!! So in honor of all things Close to my Heart I made this card tonight. The stamps featured are from With Love, the June stamp of the month. I colored in the flower buds with a Sakura Glaze pen. Go check out this great stamp set, the FANTASTIC White Daisy ink pad and other great products at Melissa Machado CTMH Independent Consultant website.
