I think I am going crazy

I am fast becoming a stamp junky. Never thought I would until I saw Crafty Secrets has the cutest
littler girl witch for Halloween :)

Well as you may know I do some drawing. I am doing this project it is a layout for scrapbook page and it has a nautical theme.

Long story short, After combing the net for a Company that makes nautical themed Stamps that I could color in with my Copic Markers of course .
I found nothing. To be more specific I was in need of an anchor !! Well I did not find one !!

So, Here is what I came up with. Let me know what you think ?

It was done from my own mind no reference. Sometimes I will get an idea and I can't get it out of my mind. I even tried to make one with the Nestabilities (lol) . There good but I found this to work a lot better :) It will be an embellishment for the page :) AND SOMEDAY YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SEE THE PAGE BUT
NOT RIGHT NOW . I know such a tees:)

Follow up

OK I have a couple of minutes by myself with the kiddies to bed and all:)
I wanted to Share a few of the products that I used on the Fireplace Card.
Some of the Dies are discontinued hopefully Stacey will bring some of them back because they are so great. Me in the position I am in there is not much in the case of dies I don't have :) However I am fast becoming addicted to stamps :) And I do have some doubles Dies :) I was thinking maybe blog candy :) I do not know!! or maybe trading:)

I really like the Holly that came from a die called Ornament & Holly S3-075 and the Camp Fire Die S3-073. Now I know Tags 5 S4-081 will never go anywhere it is way to popular.

Here comes the new Dies for the Christmas season(HOHOHO) not ready for that at all.
Labels 8 S5-019 I don't know about you but I can not get enough labels :)
And last but not lest the Stocking from a set called Holiday- Cheer S4-225 this die was so much fun to work with . I can see this in many different projects of mine :) If I ever have the time to post any thing. (LOL)

The paper was from DCMC luxury pack from Pat Catan's my favorite Craft Store!! Micheal's is running a close second :) But staying on track here I used a ton of Copic now I can't remember
witch ones I used and truth be told I do not want to type all of them out SO what . I know I will need to start taking pictures of what I use . So I can post them toos . Gosh there is so much for his Newbie to remember it is crazy . Back on track I used Stickel's to give it a little sparkles and some brads that I got from creative expressions. I used 3d foam squares and EZ-runner from scrapbook adhesive. And I think that is all.

Thank You all so much for letting this newbie share .
As I look and get inspired by all the talented people that have really great blogs
I am sure I am going to get better :) Have a great evening I'm off to bed good night !!

Finally I get to share :)

I finally get to share some of the things I have made for Spellbinders CHA .
First of all I don't consider myself a card maker. Don't get me wrong, I really do enjoy making them and they take me no time. Sometimes I get to looking around and see so many excellent card makers are out there and honestly it can be a little intimidating if you know what I mean. Just check out some of my fellow design team members :) or the blogs I visit way to much. They are truly a great inspiration for me.

This is where my Journey begins I wanted to give you kind of
an inside view of my experience so far.
Spellbinders basically gave me a challenge to create one layout, one card & one Altered piece
with the new release dies they gave to me . This card was completely inspired by the stocking.
It is late and time to put the kids to bed. I will post with all the details on Monday:)

Hellllllooooowww ahhh yes I am still here

I was going for a nautical theme for this Summer's photos. By the way most of my pictures are taken by a pro and they do get quite cheesy. I think little girls should be cheesy it is fun to indulge. That is why God gave me little girls :)

I will post that layout when I am able to. However this was an altered project for the month of May. It was really quite easy to make.

I used Spell binders die S4-072 Flower Creations
Copic Markers BG000, B29, BG01
Crystal brads from Derice carried by Pat Catan's My local Craft Store of choice :) I can spend all day in there. But that is another story I can not get into.
I did find a navy Blue head band at Target of all places.
(I can spend all day in there too)
One more thing a Styrofoam egg I cut in half .(Warning) It did turn out bigger then I had expected. But I had to use it anyway :) It was meant for my 2 year to ware (LOL) But Bree my 4 year old was very happy to model it. I hope I will be back soon with more projects to share soon.
