Back to School!


I'm sure everyone is sad that summer is over or almost over.   My children started school August 3rd.  Yes you read right, August 3.    I know it's early.    I wasn't ready. They weren't ready but what are we going to do.   What I'm doing is getting ready for teacher gifts.   You can't have enough of them.   Especially, when you have several children is school.   Today I will be previewing the new Back to School line from  Simply Betty Stamps.   I think they are super cute and are totally out of the box.   

This is mad scientist Christian

The card measures 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. The card stock is Bazzill and Stampin Up.  The sentiment is from Inspired Stamps.   I love it.   I want to use it for everything.   I'm not though.   The paper is Echo Park.  The line is Playground.   I got it from  Simply Betty Stamps.  I hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday.    Don't forget to check out the other design team members' creations HERE

Happy Monday or not?


Happy Monday.  Well is any Monday happy?  Hahaha.   I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.   This weekend my daughter started on her first commission.   She is painting a Super Mario Bros. mural in her Godmother's laundry room.   She is so excited.  The outline is finished and next week the painting begins.   I will keep you updated and pictures will be posted.

Well speaking of artsy girls.   Simply Betty Stamps has a new line of Back to School Teen Scene stamps and Artist London reminds me of my daughter Jennica.   She loves to draw dragons and she has a passion for sweets.   Cupcakes and ice cream are her weakness.  I had to make something with this image.   

Isn't she cute?!   Totally my Jennica.    Her hair is even wavy but she hates it.   LOL!  I actually made a HUGE card.   It measures 5X8.   I have no idea where I will get an envelope to fit this card.   Maybe I can get one from the store.   Just kidding.  I used Echo Park Summer time paper and stickers. The colored card stock is bazzill and the white card stock is Georgia Pacific.   The bling on the ice cream cone was from the dollar bin at Michael's. Overall,  I really like the way this card came out and it's a perfect representation of my Jennica. Don't forget to check out the what the other design team members created. HERE

Let's Get Sketchy


Happy Friday everyone!  
 I am happy it's Friday but today is going to be a scorcher.  Overall, we had a mild summer but now it's here and in full force.  Anyways,  I hope it ends soon because I'm ready for Fall.  Although,  I'm not ready for the time change and shorter nights.   Well,  we can't have everything.  LOL!

Today at Simply Betty Challenges This week's challenge is  Getting Sketchy with it:  pick any sketch from any sketch challenge and combine it with one of her images (or any other company's image,  but she does love to see SBS images being used)!  Here is my example of the challenge. The sketch I used was from Deconstructed Sketches.  I used the new Teen Scene Halloween line: Mummy Lola.  The sentiment is from Stampinsanity's Simply Supernatural set. 

The card measures a little under 6".  I used Echo Park Paper Trick or Treat.  I found it at  Keep it simple scrapbooks for $.63 a sheet.  Bargain HUH?   The card stock is Stampin Up and Bazzill.   I think I am loving Bazzill paper now.    I am no longer a Stampin Up card stock snob.   hahaha!  On that note,  I hope everyone as a wonderful weekend and I am ready to sleep in because I love my sleep.

Happy Anniversary Addams Style!


OMG,   two posts in a row.   I know it's crazy but I really would like to get back to posting regularly.   Darn Facebook. Yes let's use that as an excuse.   Anyways,   today is the second preview day of Simply Betty's new Teen Scene Halloween line.    This is the Addams couple.

The card measures 5 1/2 x 51/2.  I used the retired Stampin Up paper Rockabilly.   I love this paper I wish I could get my hot little hands on some more of this stuff. (Wishful thinking I know.) I used Peach spica marker on their hair which is hard to photograph but I think you can see it somewhat.  Last but not least, the sentiment is from Stampinsanity Simply Super natural set.  

 Overall,  I like the way the card turned out and I will be using it for my in-laws anniversary.    They will be married for 39 years on the 26 of this month.   Wow, that is crazy to be with someone for that long.    These days couples can't stay together for 39 days.   LOL!   I can't even image spending 39 years with my hubby.   Hahahaha

A New Preview for Simply Betty Stamps


Hello everyone,

Sorry I haven't been around lately. I think I'm kind of burnt out. I'm slowly getting my crafty groove back. Today I will be showcasing the new Teen Scene Halloween image Evil Queen Rio from Simply Betty Stamps. Although, I don't think she looks evil at all. She looks super cute. She reminds me of my Jennica when she was little and loved to wear frilly dresses. She loved the princesses and especially Minnie Mouse. Anyways, I better stop. I created this card for the Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge. Use at least 3 embellishments. Our sponsors this week are Digi's With Attitude! and Inspired Stamps Inspired Stamps was generous enough to give our design team a stamp to play with. I choose a sentiment "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Phil 4:13. I love this scripture. It helps me in hard times and it's inspirational. I thought it would go perfect with this image because it looks like she's dreaming to be a princess.

The card measures 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. The card stock is bazzill and Stampin Up. I use Echo Park Paper from the Little Girl line. Although, you can't see it at all. The ribbon is Stampin Up and the sketch is from Deconstructing Sketches.   I hope I didn't leave anything out. If I did forgive me. Don't forget to check out the other Simply Betty girls to see their wonderful creations and stay tuned for more previews tomorrow.
