Altered Kaiserkraft Box

Hi Everyone,

I had so much fun doing this box! I made it for an old friend. The paper I used I have been hoarding forever, and had a hard cutting into it! The paper is from Bo Bunny! It's an older line.

I painted the main part of the box a dark brown, and the inside of the pull out drawers are painted a light cream. I used some Tim Holtz tickets, and knobs, and some other random bits and pieces. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a good one!

Gummiapan Die and Stamp - Gift Bag

Hi Everyone,

 I ordered some stamps and dies from Shawn at Magnolia-licious. He has started carrying a new to me company called Gummiapan. Their stamps and dies are amazing!

So...I made a little gift bag, suitable for a thoughtful little gift or even a gift card.  

I think most of you know how much I love wings, as soon as I saw this stamp I knew it had to be mine!! lol

Have a great day everyone!

Wonderful Tilda

Hi Everyone,

It's been forever and a day since I have posted, but here goes!

Today I am sharing a card made for Magnolia-licious. I have never used a Magnolia stamp before. Not because I didn't like them, but they were so expensive to buy from Overseas. Now I don't have to, as Shawn Mills from Magnolia-licious sells them, and some other awesome products! We will get into some of the other things he sells in a few days. 

The Tilda I used is called Wonderful Tilda, she is from the new You're Invited Collection. I stamped and embossed her on Bristol paper and coloured her in with Zig Clean Color Markers. I used a bunch of dies, but I'm only going to talk about what I used from the store. The die directly under Tilda is called Jute DooHickey Die. I used a Shabby Bark Heart as well as Eloise Lace from the store. The paper pad I used for this card is called Violet Silence from Lemon Craft. Oh, it's a beautiful pad of paper, and you all know how much I love purple! lol

I have linked all products used. If you would like to order, please just click on the links and they will take you directly to Magnolia-licious!

Thank you so much for stopping by,
I truly appreciate it!


After my house…Tagtime at Stampotique



This tag was made using the Stampotique Great Moon, Spiderweb, and sentiment from Dylusions by Dyan Reaveley. I just love her sentiments, some and quirky, some are fun…she also has some more serious sets. I started by cutting the tag with the Tim Holtz Tag die template. Then I spread distress stains on my teflon sheet and sprayed with a bit of water, then smooshed (not a word, I the tag through it a few times until I had the look I wanted. I dried it with a heat gun, and then distressed the edges. The moon and sentiment were both stamped on patterned paper, cut out, then distressed. I ran the ribbon through the same ink I had leftover from the tag, wrinkled it into a ball, then dried with my heat gun. You have to be a bit careful doing this…it can start smoking pretty fast, and I am thinking it could start on fire if you aren’t careful. In the end I did put a tiny touch of yellow Stickles on the star.

Remember When…

Hi there,

I have been doing a bit of stamping lately. I have a card to share with you today. My card is using all Stampsmith stamps.


The main image is a photo stamp of Shirley Temple. The sentiment is from the Say It Like It Is plate. You can find them both here at The Stampsmith website. I started by stamping Shirley on white glossy c/s, then using Phototwin markers, I coloured in her shirt and her lips. I then distressed the photo, and all the layers. I used flower dies from MFT to do the rolled flowers, and a Martha Stewart punch for the ferns. Oh, and the card shape was done with the Grand Labels 1. The background paper is from the new Webster’s Pages line called Western Romance. I actually bought the whole pack of 25 because it’s so gorgeous, then I can use it and not hoard it! lol

Thank you so much for stopping by, and have a great day,



Naughty is the new Nice!


Hi Everyone,

I wanted to share a tag I made this evening. It was so fun to get all inky and messy! I used a huge amount of Glimmer Mists and Distress Inks on a piece of white cardstock, that was run through an embossing folder, to create the background. Then I used 2 stamps from Viva Las Vegastamps! The woman image, Lady with Fan, as well as the sentiment, Naughty is the new nice. Both are stamped with Ancient Page coal black ink, then distressed. After this was done I sprayed some lace, ribbon, and ribbon flowers with more glimmer mists, then adhered to the tag. I decided to cut the sentiment apart so I could use a part of it on top and at the bottom of the tag.


The background of this tag shimmers like you would not believe. I know you can’t tell in the photo though.

Thank you for stopping by,




I was going to submit this card for a Design Team tryout, but I missed the midnight deadline, but thought I would share my card with you all anyway. I had such fun making this card! I started out stamping the Armchair Lovers from Viva Las Vegastamps, then stamped the image again on patterned paper, and cut out the chair. I then paper pieced it onto the first image. The image was coloured with Copic Markers, and everything was distressed using Tim Holtz Distress Inks. The sentiment is a rub-on, and the hearts and flowers are punches. The gem in the center of the flower is a Sparklet from Kaisercraft! LOVE them! The patterned paper is from Pink Paislee. Oh, and the doily is a Cheery Lynn die, omgosh, gorgeous.
Thank you so much for stopping by, I really appreciate it!


Both of us can’t look good…Viva Las Vegastamps


Hi Everyone,

I have a wall hanging to share with you today that I made for my studio door.  I wanted something girly that would also make my husband laugh. I started out with a piece of chipboard, painted the back of it, then used Miracle Tape to apply designer paper to the front of the chipboard. I then sanded the edges and distressed them with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. The Pretty Lady in Pearls was stamped with Rich Cocoa Brown Momento inks, then heat set for just a quick second. She is colored in with Copic Markers. The sentiment "Both of us can't look good at the same time...It's either me or the house", can be found here. the  To finish it all off, I used some Nestibilities to cut the layers for the Pretty Lady, mounted her on the chipboard and added some flowers. The sentiment is cut up and distressed and then mounted on the chipboard. I then added a couple pearl flourishes.

All stamps used can be found at Viva Las Vegastamps.

Both of usVLVS

I had such a wonderful time while away on vacation, but ended up staying almost an extra month! After I visited the kids and the rest of my family, I went to visit my husband, who left at the beginning of June for work. He is still in Victoria now, hopefully he will come home soon! I do have pictures to share, and will do that sometime soon. I miss my grandbabies so much, they are both so sweet and adorable, and so very happy.

Thank you so much for stopping by today,
