Artist of the Month at Our Craft Lounge Part 5

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR MY THE CRAFT'S MEOW PREVIEW DAY POST!

Hello again!

This is my last post for Our Craft Lounge, Artist of the Month for May. :( I truly enjoyed playing with all my OCL stamps! Thank you so much, Heather and OCL for inviting me!

The last week was way hectic for me so I didn't have much time to create a project for my last post for OCL. I only have this coffee card shaped card. It's cute though, don't you think? :)

I found this tutorial HERE. It's super easy to make. I used the Fueled by Caffeine set for this card.

Thank you all for stopping by!

The Craft's Meow June Release Preview Day #2

Welcome to the second day preview for The Craft's Meow's June Release! Today we are previewing another one of Nina's gorgeous creations, Timeless Tags! This set coordinates with Grommet Tags Spellbinder dies.

My card today of course features one of the fancy tags from this new set! I use the pretty flower from the Happiness Is set to create this beautiful patterned paper! I stamped it with Versamark a few times onto white cardstock, sprinkled detail white embossing powder and then heat set it. I then rubbed Tim Holtz' distressed ink (fired brick and worn lipstick) onto the white cardstock and voila! So....patterned paper is by ME, stick pin is by ME, yellow rosette is by Recollection, ribbon from stash, and daily is by Wilton.

Farewell Kim

Hello! Hope everyone is having a super sugary Friday and looking forward to the long weekend! Any plans? BBQ perhaps? :) My SIL is having a housewarming party so that's where I will be at. hehe

Today I have this cute Sugar n' Spice Marci card to share. I colored Marci with Copic and use this sweet cupcake paper from my Basic Grey nook and pantry paper pad. Perfect paper to go with Marci, don't you think? :) I used a couple of my handmade crochet flowers. I sure have been adding quite a lot of these flowers on my cards lately. LOL

Details: STAMPS: LLLC, Sugar n' Spice Marci, Papetrey Ink; PAPERS: Basic Grey Nook and Pantry; EMBELLISHMENTS: pearl, crochet flowers; TOOLS: corner punch, border punch, word window punch; COPIC COLORS: E11, E21, E00, E000, R20, R85,R83, R81, E59, E57, E55, RV00, G94, G24, YG03, E47, E44, E42, o, C3,C1,N0

Raise your hand if you are wondering about the title of this post. LOL I actually feel kind of awkward to say farewell to myself. LOL I have been with LLLC since the beginning, almost two years now. It has been such a wonderful experience working along side some of the most talented crafters, playing with all the adorable LLLC images and to see these images come to life! Totally awesome!

Anyway, I've decided to pass on the torch to Irina's new talented team! You all have seen their work and boy weren't their work amazing?? They have A LOT more in store for you!

There are some nice changes coming up at LLLC and I think you all will LOVE it! So stay tuned!

Thank you for stopping by! Happy Friday, everyone!

Happy Birthday Zulma!

Today is Lollipop Girl, Zulma's special day! Happy Birthday, Zulma! May all your wishes come true!

Here is a fun birthday card just for you, Zulma!

TGF's Mystery Monday this week is to CASE GIO's very fun card. Her awesome card inspired me to use banners for the first time. I must say, they are fun!

I cut the triangles one by one and stamp each letters. When I was half way done, I thought, why didn't I print it from the computer? LOL That was a little time consuming but I sure had a fun cutting! hehe


Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!

Sparkle Creation Challenge #44

Sparkle Creations is sponsoring 365 Cards this week and for Tuesday the theme is "HAT". Yup, this is our challenge for the week!

I used Scooter Chloe on my card. I colored Chloe with Copic. I used one of my handmade dangles.

Sketch is by Sweet Sunday Sketch.


Hey, did you know? Chloe is our featured character this month and guess what? She's on sale! Plus, she would be great for this challenge! Why? Because she either got a hat on or a helmet on! Gotta grab her while you can! You might just get her in time and enter this challenge for a chance to win one of our many adorable stamps!

For more inspiration, please check our blog!

Artist of the Month at Our Craft Lounge Part 4

Hellllloooooooooooo! :) I am back with my OCL Artist of the Month post!

For today's project, I used the Big Birthday Wishes set. We all know how busy we get sometimes and just don't have the time to shop for that perfect gift for that special someone, right? Well, that's when GIFT CARDS come in handy! You guess it! I made more gift card holders!

This is a set of four gift card holders. It serves as a gift card holder and a card at the same time.

First up, I have this cool gift box to hold the gift card holders. I was in need of something to hold the GC holders and so I played with measurements. hehe I got it right the first time too! So yeah, no template but if anyone needs one, I'll try my best to get one done. Gotta give me time though. LOL You know I am a procrastinator! LOL

I didn't want just any old box so I added a little handle to serve as a little purse box. This box measures 5x5x1 1/2. It's a pretty good size.

Here is how it looks like once you flip it open. I used thin clear Velcro for closure. I intended to use magnets but couldn't find that little pack! LOL See, I can never find my stuff! LOL

Gift card holders are 4x4. Two designs, for altogether.


In case you are wondering about this $100 gift card, it's my reward from one of my credit cards. :)


I will be listing this set in my ETSY Store soon!

Well, that's all for now. I have more Our Craft Lounge creations to share next Monday so stay tuned!


Mini Pizza Box

Hello peeps! How was your weekend? A wonderful one, I hope! Mine was short! I need more time off! LOL

My dear wonderful partner/friend, Kris is hosting this week's challenge at Lollipop Crafts. The theme is Bling It! Yup, easy one! I think I add blings to all my creations! LOL

I've never tried making a mini pizza box but the challenge at All That Scraps sure gave me a little push! LOL It was really easy and simple to make, at least way easier than I thought!

TGF asks for Summer Lovin' projects and I immediately thought of this cute HG Sing and my Deja Views Soda Pop papers. I colored this adorable girl with Copic. I must say I LOVE blue and orange together! I used one of my handmade stick pins, available at my Etsy Store.

For some reasons, the side doesn't stay close/flat.

I made a divider for the inside.

Be sure to stop by Lollipop Crafts for more inspiration!

Since it's Monday, that means new listing at my ETSY STORE! This week is all about HAIR BOWS! I think I have over 150 rolls of ribbons! What to do with some of them? HAIR BOWS! Every little girl should have some pretty hair bows, right? hehe

Here are a couple at the store right now.


I am working on more colors and will ad them to the store soon!

Thanks a bunch for stopping!

Artist of the Month at Ouc Craft Lounge Part 3

Ahhh....Monday....which means, I am sharing Our Craft Lounge creations! hehe

I used The Pond set for my creations this week. I totally adorable this set! It is so versatile! You can practically use it for any occasion!

For this card, I made a simple "hi" card. Don't you just love the fun sentiment??


Using the same set, I used this cute little turtle for my bracelet. Yup, i used shrink ding! You know how much I love to use those! LOL I used freshwater pearls and finished it with a lobster clasp for closure. Pretty neat bracelet. hehe

I have more Our Craft Lounge creations to share next Monday so be sure to stop by again then!

before I go, I just want to let you guys know that I added JEWELRY to my Etsy Store this week! Some of you guys knew this already but for those who don't, I love jewelry making! My sister used to sell my jewelry at work but over the years, I got addicted to cardmaking so I really haven't been making much since then. But recently, I started back! Yup, I have been super duper busy multi tasking...as you can see from what I have at my Etsy store. LOL Unlike most sellers who have only a particular item for sale in their Etsy store, I like the idea of having a variety of things. You know, kind of like a one stop store for everything! hehe

Here are a couple of featured items at my store right now.




I will be adding more fun stuff next week!

Thanks so much for stopping by everyone!

Teacher Appreciation

Happy happy day, everyone!

Juelmarie is our hostess at Lollipop Crafts this week and she would love to see some teacher appreciation creations. A thank card will do. LOL

Our sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish. Robyn's Fetish generously provided our team with a few images to play with. Unfortunately I couldn't use any since my printer is still not working right. Since that option is out of the question, I knew right away which stamp I want to use for this challenge....Annika from TGF! I have this stamp since 2009!

I colored Annika with Copics and paired her with Circa 1934 papers from Cosmo Cricket. I also added one of my handmade baubles/charms. Oh do you like the added yellow pencil sticker on my card? This sticker just happened to be visible on my desk and I thought it would look cool on this card. What do you think?

Sketch is my TGF's Which One Wednesday, Sketch #3.


Everyone have a lovely day! I have more to share later today so please come back soon!
