More Altered Doodle Flowers

Congratulations, Alysha! I made this card for my sweet niece, Alysha, who just won the Science Fair at her school yesterday! I figured I'd send her a little congratulations card along with a gift card to go to the movies or something. I'm so proud of her! She won first place in her Grade 7 class and first place in her school with 125 other entries! Now, she goes on to Regionals, if she does well, she'll get a free trip to Montreal! She's a very smart girl, I'm thinking positively that she's gonna do well and win the trip! You go, Girl! :)

For this card, I tried the altered doodle flower technique again...doing it properly this time with a bone folder to curl the petals and using a dimensional square underneath to adhere the tips of the petals to. I really like this technique, they make such a cute little flower. I just hope it doesn't get ruined in the mail! ...Humm, I just had an idea, maybe I'll put the card inside a CD case so it doesn't get flattened. Yippee...I just checked and it fits perfectly with the insert removed! That'll work! :)

Ok, gotta go get ready for work...thanks for stoppin' by! :)

Altered Doodle Flowers

I made another card this afternoon with the colour challenge in mind for this Saturday when a bunch of us are getting together. I decided to use Purely Pomegranate as my main colour with this one and just pair it with black and white...and it's not blue or green! I'm tellin' ya it's hard not to pick out those blues and greens and use 'em! lol :)

I saw flowers done like this recently on Chat's blog- 'Me, Myself and I' and thought they were really cute, so I had to try them out for myself on my own card. Kinda neat to have another way to use a particular stamp to give it a whole new look. The only thing is, I couldn't find her pictures until after I had my card all done, so I was just going on memory from what I had seen. I was thinking that she just used double sided tape to hold the petals in place, but it makes more sense that she used a dimensional square...that's how she got the petals to curl instead of the folded look like I have. I like her method a lot better! I'm gonna try it again tomorrow I think! lol :) Anyway, here is the tutorial on how Chat did her flowers. Check it out! She does simply amazing work!

Ok, I have to call it a day,'s nearly 1 am! I'll try to post something tomorrow before I go into work.

Friend Colour Challenge

My friend, Kim challenged us last week in our circle of local stampin' addicts to try to think outside our comfort zone of colours that we normally use and try to make a card not using any of those colours.'s hard! My colour 'not' to use is blue and green, in particular bashful blue/blue bayou and certainly celery/key lime. As I was looking through my cardstock and patterned paper tonight...nearly all of it had some hint of those colours or it was the main colour! I really need to choose some new colours! So, tonight, after much thought, I decided to go with shades of purple...Nah, nah, nah, nah, Kim, ..that's one of the colours that Kim isn't allowed to use! I know it's gonna kill her to not use pink or purple!!! lol :)

Anyway, I'm posting my card tonight, but all my cards this week are gonna follow the colour challenge rules...oh, it's gonna be a stressful week! lol :) We're all getting together later in the week here at my place to have a fun stampin' night and to show each other the cards that we came up with. I love getting together with all the girls...let's hope my little ones stay asleep this time, though, and let us have our 'big girls' night.

Butterfly Wishes

Tonight's card is one that I made for Shannon's colour challenge of using Tempting Turquoise, Almost Amethyst and Basic Black. I've never used these three colours together and I thought they sounded pretty so I figured I'd give it a go. :) I also had a birthday card to make for my Mum, for next week, so I decided to combine the two tasks. She loves daisies, hence the Cuttlebug'd background. Amethyst is also the birthstone for the month of February and my Mum likes the colour, so I thought it would be perfect.

It was nice to spend some time in my craft room tonight, I hope to get back in there again tomorrow and I'll be back soon to show you something else new. Until then...

Happy 1st Birthday, Laura!

Does this card look familiar? I CASE'd one of my own cards from last month! LOL :) Lame, I know, but I had another birthday card to do for another birthday party that we're going to this weekend. This one is for our friend's little one who's turning 1. I wanted to get the card done tonight and just couldn't think of a theme to do and I really liked the one I had done last month, so I figured I'd just make another one.

Well, I had a horrible afternoon today. My youngest daughter has been having belly pains for a while now and we recently went to the doctor and she gave us a requisition to get some blood work done along with an ultrasound that is booked for 2 weeks down the road. Well, after a few mix ups with blood collection clinics, I decided just to go to the children's hospital and get it done. All I can say is OMG! Natalia has been talking about the fact that she's going to get bloodwork done and has seemed almost excited about it. Weird, I know! This is her first time ever getting bloodwork done, so she really didn't know what to expect. She had it in her head that they were just gonna give her a little poke. I've been assuring her that's all they do, not that they actually draw blood out of you! Anyway, she was fine until we got to the room where she saw the chair to sit in to get her blood taken. She absolutely lost it! I swear you could have heard her in the other end of the city! I felt so bad, it took forever to even get her to sit in my lap with me, while 2 nurses held her arm and I wrapped my legs around hers to pin her down. I turned her head to the side and covered her eyes so she wouldn't see the blood being drawn...I didn't want to traumatize her any more than need be! In the end, the nurse offered her a figure puppet from a basket as a peace offering. She wanted nothing to do with them at all and wouldn't accept one. It took me about 20 minutes to calm her down after they were gone and we left the lab. On our way out we saw a Tim Horton's and I bought her a cookie as a peace offering. She gladly accepted that! lol :) When we got home, I overheard her explaining the episode to her older sister, saying, "It hurt sooooo bad and the the meanies tried to give me a puppet and I said No!" I darn near lost it with laughter, terrible, I know, but it was kinda funny listening to her recanting her experience to her sister, telling her of the mean nurses trying to win her over with finger puppets! Imagine, the gaul of those meanies! lol :) The nurses were actually very nice ladies and showed a great deal of patience with my nervous little one. Yes, that's what we'll call her, nervous little one, not little holy terror! lol :)

Anyway, hopefully she'll be doing ok tomorrow. I gave her some Motrin after her needle and again at bedtime, as she was complaining that her arm really hurt. I took the bandaid off and she's actually got quite a bruise from the needle, so I imagine it does hurt quite a bit. Poor little girl. :( Perhaps I'll have to think up some crafty idea for the girls tomorrow to cheer them up. My oldest daughter has an in-service tomorrow, so no school. It'll be nice spending the day inside, maybe they'll even sleep in, it'd be nice to get some extra rest. On that note, I think I'll call it a day.

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

Thank You RAK from Kelly

I just realized that I've been MIA for nearly a week...I don't know where the week has gone!

I received this beautiful card a couple of days ago from my good friend, Kelly Eelhart and I had to share it. I love the colours and the prima's that Kelly used, a very elegant looking card. Great job, Kelly! :)

Sorry that I don't have any of my own work to share. I went to bed early last night and actually got 12 hours of sleep...I can't remember the last time that happened! I fell asleep again tonight putting the girls to bed and I just woke up. I'm posting this and then I'm going back to bed! I'm exhausted and I think I really need to catch up on some well needed rest! But, I really want to get in my craft room tomorrow, so hopefully I'll have something to share with you soon!

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

Happy Valentine's Day

This is the card that I made for my hubby, Jim, that I posted about last week and had to remove it, 'cause he was teasing me! So, now that it's Valentine's Day, it's safe to post now! lol :) You can see my initial post regarding this card here along with the supplies I used.

Jim and I just got home from the Ship's Company Valentine's Dinner and Dance. It was a good evening overall. It was held over in Halifax at a posh hotel, we got to dress up, had a nice roast beef dinner and had way too many desserts to choose from...some yummy stuff! We weren't really in the dancing mood, so we mostly sat and chatted and joked around with a few other couples and had a fun time.

My girls had a wonderful day today, they really love Valentine's Day. They each had parties at school and they love giving/getting cards. They also really liked the little treasure boxes that I made for them last night, I'm glad since I was up half the night making them! lol :)

I thought this picture, below, was cute, I snapped it of my youngest daughter after I picked her up at preschool. When I got there to pick her up, all 24 of the children had their faces painted like this- too cute for anything! :)
Well, I just wanted to post the Valentine's card that I made for Jim to show you. Hope everyone had a nice day and that you got to spend it with your loved ones.

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

Altered Treasure Boxes

I've got a busy day planned tomorrow...or today, now I guess! lol :) Anyway, I probably won't have a chance to post them later so here goes. This is gonna be a fairly quick post since it's way past my bedtime, but I just wanted to show you the altered recipe boxes that I made for the girls tonight for Valentine's Day. These were recipe boxes that I bought for a screamin' deal at Michaels for $1.50 each, so an inexpensive gift for sure! I personalized each of them and they can use their boxes to hold all sorts of little treasures. I used colours that each of them like and they have some sparkle to them, too, that I think they'll like a lot. :)

Here's what they looked like before I altered them. Kinda cute for a country themed kitchen, but you know me, it was just screamin' to be altered! lol :)Ok, wow, it's 1:35 AM...I've gotta call it a day! Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

More Altered Valentine Heart Boxes

I just finished the final two Valentine Boxes...and a night ahead of schedule, can you believe it! lol :) I've been working on these over the past few days, but here are the two that I finished up tonight. One is from my daughter, Alexandria to her teacher, Mrs. Gillis and the other is for my Mum (Muggy, as they call her) from both of my girls. I know my Mum will really like this. I made the heart insert inside twice as long on hers, my husband got a huge kick out of one of the sayings that they said they loved about her, it reads ' she makes us porridge.' I know that'll make her laugh. Can you imagine loving someone 'cause they make you porridge! lol :) It's just always a treat when they go to her place for slumber parties, when they wake up, that's what they have! Anyway, I thought it was kinda cute. :)

Time to call it a day. Lots to do tomorrow. I have two more boxes to alter for each of my daughter's for Valentine's Day. I'll post them tomorrow night. I also have to make more Valentine's for my other daughter's class, but I won't bother to post those as they'll be identical to her sister's Valentine treats that I posted earlier tonight. Hope everyone had a great day. We're waiting on more snow for another winter storm watch expected to hit in the morning... school was cancelled yesterday, maybe we'll get to sleep in tomorrow morning, too! That'd be nice! lol :)

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

You can click here to see the supplies used in this post of another Heart Box that I did.

Sidenote: My kids call my Mum, 'Muggy.' It started when my oldest was just a wee little one and that's what she would call her. We'd try to correct her, but she'd just keep calling her that. Anyway, it stuck and even my youngest calls her that, now and Mum thinks it's kinda cute. Although I've asked Alex what it means or how she thought of it, she doesn't know, she always says, I don't know, Mum, she's just a Muggy. Kids, they're cute aren't they? :)

Valentine's Day Treats

I had 24 Valentine's to do up for Alexandria's Grade Primary class. Well, you know me, I couldn't just go out and buy Princess Valentine's or this is what I made instead! lol :) Alexandria and I had a fun time putting them together after supper tonight, they didn't take that long to make and she's really excited about giving them to her classmates. I also have little wooden Valentine boxes for the teachers, but I'll post them in my next post. I'm almost done...yeah, I know, nothing like leaving it 'til the last minute! But, it wouldn't be like me if I didn't though! I always have good intentions, it's just that sometimes they're a little late...

For these little chocolate Valentine Treats, I used a piece of cardstock 5" x 1 1/8", I scored it at 1 7/8" in on each end. Does that make sense? Score it at 1 7/8", then flip it over and repeat. I used one stamp from Michaels using a mask so that I would only stamp one image at a time on each side. I used a piece of double sided tape on the inside bottom of the folded area to hold the chocolate in place. Surprisingly, I only ate one while I was making them! Thought I better try one to make sure they were know quality control!!! lol :)

Well, gotta go finish up the Valentine Boxes...I'll post them later on! :)

Gymnastics Birthday Party

We had such a wonderful afternoon yesterday. My friend, Kelly had a gymnastics themed 4th birthday party for her little boy and my girls had such a blast running around, rolling, jumping and most of all bouncing on the big trampoline! Yeah, they didn't like that part at all! lol :) I feel kinda bad, I haven't put either of my girls into gymnastics, it's not for their lack of asking if they can do it, but I just know the problems that it can cause to your body...I did competitive gymnastics for 11 years and it destroys your back, knees, ankles... Perhaps I'm being way too overprotective, and I know what they do as young kids is just recreational and they don't get into the moves that harm your body by twisting and contorting it into ways that I'm sure it was never meant to be, but I'm sure they'd fall in move with the sport the same as I did and want to continue. However, I saw the smiles on their faces yesterday and it really made me think that the decision I had made to keep them out of it was wrong. I just know that I had so many muscle and ligament sprains and bone breaks that in the end it just wasn't worth it to me anymore. But, I did have a lot of fun and it's wonderful for toning your body and for flexibility. I dunno, maybe I'll change my mind down the road...

Ok, onto my card now that I've rambled on and on! Sorry about that! lol :) I had to make a birthday card for a little boy, so I tried to keep it on the boyish side and I had seen a card that my SU Demo, Yvonne Balmer had at the party the other night and I fell in love with it. Her card used the same 4 little windows, but it used the bug set from SU. I don't have that set, so I used a boyish themed stamps from Studio G. I got it in my head that I wanted to alter the style of Yvonne's card and make mine into one that looked like a present with the ribbon crossed and a little bow in the centre. I think it turned out kinda cute. Perhaps it's not as boyish as it should have been, but I don't think a 4 year old will be really concerned! lol :)

These are the sweet little treat cans that Kelly made for all the kids. They were all different and so darn cute! You crafty girl, Kelly! :) My girls absolutely love their little tin cans. As soon as they came home they dumped all the treats out and filled their cans with an assortment of 'special' things from around the house. I even caught Alexandria hugging her tin! Too bad they don't like them at all! lol :)

Card Supplies:
Stamps: Boy Themed stamps (Studio G), Birthday stamps - inside card (Studio G)
Ink: Gable Green (SU), Bashful Blue (SU)
Cardstock: Wild Wasabi (SU), Bashful Blue (SU), Flat White and Flat Black (CRS)

A Night Out with the Girls

I had a great night out last night with a bunch of the girls. We headed on over to Catherine's for a SU Party, we had a great time chatting, stampin' and carrying on and eating! Yummy cake, Catherine! :) We made two beautiful cards that I really love. I know, I know, blue again...but it's not my fault! I'm not the one who designed the card! lol :)

Here's the first card that we made. This is my first latch card that I've ever made. I've seen samples of this type of card, but just never got around to making one. I really love this card how it turned out. We used SU Cardstock Vellum....OMG, what awesome vellum! It's such a nice heavy weight, and I think the flowers are gorgeous done on this. We stamped them with black StazOn and then used SU markers to colour in the back side of the flowers and then coloured the stamens on the front side of the flowers. I'm gonna have to get some of this cardstock vellum soon! It was a lot of fun playing with it for sure! :)

Here's a better look at the Vellum flowers.

Here is a view of the latch, in case you're not familiar with this type of card.

This is the second card that we made. I had so much fun playing with the watercolour crayons. They really do such a beautiful job...I'm such a fan of SU WaterColour Wonder Crayons. I 'must' purchase more!!! Why can't I just win the lottery? Wouldn't it make life so much easier? lol :)
Thanks so much for having us all over to play stamps with you, Catherine! lol :)

Kim also bought along some goodies for us to help ourselves to. Things that she had and wasn't using anymore and wanted to see if any of us could use them. We were all like kids in a candy store, I tell ya! lol :) I got some wonderful things to play with, thanks again, so much, Kim! You're a sweetheart! :)

Here's the goodies that I got from Kim - some pretty primas and an assortment of cute chipboard die cuts. Also, some patterned paper and eyelets.

Altered Valentine Heart Box

I've been an altering fool again over the past couple of days, making this cute little Valentine's Box for each of my daughter's teachers for a little gift. I asked each of my girls what they liked about their teacher and I put the sayings on the accordion style heart insert inside the wooden container. I saw this idea on Nichole Heady's blog, Capture the Moment. I love to see what Nichole is up to, she does such amazing work and she always has such creative ideas to share. For her Valentine tin, she used one of her exclusive PaperTrey Ink heart tins, but I saw these little wooden, hinged boxes at Michaels and thought I would try them for the task. I love to alter things, so this was right up my alley! :) Nichole's has a wonderful tutorial on how she made her tin, you can check it out here. While you're at it, you can check out all of PaperTrey's tins that you can alter here. That's if you're an altering fool, such as myself! lol :)

First you need a 12" x 12" piece of cardstock, cut it down to 2" x 12" and then make score lines every 2" (5 in total) to make 6 sections. I actually had to use a 10" piece of cardstock instead as the pink colour that I wanted to use, wasn't quite long enough. So, I ended up having a 2" x 10" piece, scored 4 times to make 5 sections. Make a heart template and use a temporary adhesive to adhere to the front of the folded piece.

Use a pair of sharp scissors and cut out around the heart so that the edges of the folds hold all heart together. Then, use a background stamp to stamp each heart. I masked off each heart and stamped them one at a time.

This is the insert with all the sayings added. I used MS Word and typed up the sayings using 10pt Comic Sans font. Printed them off onto white cardstock and used my Creative Memories oval cutting system to cut each of them out.
This is the view of the back of the heart tin. You can't see the hinges, but they're just below the ribbon, inset into the box.
So, that's it. Now, it's your turn to go make one! Have fun! :)

Lookie, lookie what I found!!

I was absolutely thrilled today at what I found at Frenchy's during a quick trip in to see if I could find a cheap second-hand Winter coat for my oldest daughter. The zippers have broken on both her coats within just a few days! I didn't want to have to pay a lot for a coat, but she needed something that works and it's still too cold out yet to go with her lighter coat. Well, I found a gorgeous Columbia jacket for her for $4.25! I was very happy about that and it's got loads of room for her to wear now and to grow in to, as well. Ya gotta love Frenchy's! :) A wash and it'll be good as new! When I was heading to the cash register I noticed a table with a few new items on it, and I spied this Embellishment Caddy Carousel! I think I actually ran over to the table and grabbed it! lol :) Tell me that I wasn't excited?! I likely looked like an idiot, but I knew I wanted it and I can't wait to organize all my brads, eyelets, and small embellies. Ohhh, I'll be so organized, maybe I'll actually be able to find things now! lol :)

Well, I have to go cook supper, I'll be working on some altering projects later tonight after I get the kiddies off to bed, so I should be able to share with you later this evening.

Love Goddess Valentine

**Update: I just decided to remove the picture of this card, Jim says that I'm being weak and posting the card too :) Apparently, he looks at my blog doesn't want to ruin the surprise. I just thought that perhaps if he did see it, he might get inspired to make me one of the sweet cards that he used to make me years ago that I loved getting so much! I guess that happens after 12 years of marriage, though! lol :) So, I'll post the pic of his card on Valentine's Day after he gets it.**

This is the card that I made for my hubby, Jim for Valentine's Day. I don't know if the fairy is weird, but I thought she was so beautiful that I knew I wanted to use her on the card. We'll call her a 'Love Goddess''s that? lol :) Anyway, I think the card has a sexy feel to it and that he'll like it. I hope it's not too girly...well, I guess for Valentine's Day we can get away with it being a little feminine, eh? lol :) Instead of adding ribbon, I opted for some pretty pewter charms to embellish it up a bit.

After a busy week, I don't go to work again until the end of the week, so hopefully I have lots of projects to show you this week, so stay tuned! :)

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

Stamps: Soft Swirls (SU), Love Goddess (Not sure who makes this stamp, it came from same bunch of um's that I bought last year in an online garage sale. So, if you know who makes this, please let me know and I'll update it here.)

Happy Birthday, Catherine!

Tomorrow is my good friend, Catherine Levy's birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CATHERINE!!! :) I waited til now to post a pic of her card that I made her, so she wouldn't see it...but I know she's not home this afternoon and she's getting her present tonight, so it's safe to post this now. lol :) Please stop on by and wish Catherine a Happy Birthday, she's such a good person and a real sweetheart!

My idea with this card was to make the flower to look sort of like a lit sparkler candle for a celebration look. I kinda like it! I think Catherine will like the bling, too...after all what girl doesn't like a bit of bling! :)

Well, I'm gonna try to make it into my craft room again soon, but I have to work tonight so it likely won't be then. But, we'll see if I can sneak in for a bit tomorrow. It's been a busy week and I'm starting to go into a bit of crafty withdrawal! Plus, I'm itching to try some altered projects that have been brewing in my head! lol :) So, stay posted!

Princess Castle Birthday card

We just got home from a 3rd birthday party for a friend of my daughter's. It was a great little party, they all had a lot of fun and are now having a great ol' time blasting their harmonicas that they got in their treat bags...hmmm, those might go missing very soon if the novelty doesn't wear off right away! lol :)

I used a castle stamp that I forgot that I had. Tisk...tisk on me! Imagine having stamps that we forget that we have! lol :) Anyway, I bought it last year from another stamper from an online garage sale with a bunch of other unmounted stamps. I'm not sure who makes it, so if you know, please leave a comment and I'll update the supplies below. Sorry for the poor picture, too. I took a quick pic of the card before I ran out the door and it turns out it wasn't as clear as I thought it was! Oops! :)
