Tired little penguin

This is a card I cased over two years ago, so I am not sure whom to give credit to. This card was sooo fun to make! I had so much fun on Black Friday that I am now without a voice!! I met a few friends at 1:30 a.m. and we camped out all night, and  hit 9 stores all before noon (: I bought almost everything on my list, so I am happy that is over. I really hate stretching out my Christmas shopping. We went over to my in-laws last night and stayed till 2:30 a.m. so I am a really run down little penguin today (: I am so tired that all my Black Friday Specials are still on my website so you may want to waddle over to my store and order today. 
Let me know what you think!!!!

Warm Wishes and a Warm Trip!!!!

This is a card I made using Glitz Design paper. The stamp is an acrylic stamp set that I found at Wal Mart that came with the cutest animals. I added a rhinestone to the i in wishes and again on the star. I didn't have a lot of energy today after my big trip, so this was a simple card that I thought you may like (: 
This is a picture of my loving DH and I in Tucson Arizona last week! He made top 10% in his company this year, so we were treated like royalty at the Master's event. I am soooo proud of him! We had the most wonderful time together, and yes the kids stayed at home with grandma and Tiffany (: I loved all the cactus and I have now decided I need a stamp with one LOL! I walked into them more than once (: I also loved all the mosaics I saw. I also want to create a card using mosaic. Anyway, I wanted to let everyone know why I haven't posted in a week. I also want to let everyone know that I added the Glue Glider Pro refills to my website. I know a few of you have emailed me about them. I also want everyone to know that I have a BLACK FRIDAY special going on this holiday weekend for all my Blogging Friends. Everyone who places an order this week will receive a FREE Glue ring with their order. Glue rings are the perfect stylish  accessory at a get together (:  Don't forget to shop at scrapbookstoreatyourdoor this weekend too (:

My Word this is Pretty!

I can say this is pretty because my dear friend and DTM Tiffany made this word book. She used the FAMILY chipboard book from BoBunny as well as the Urban Cosmos Kit and Brads from Fancy Pants Designs. She also used Glitz Designs orange frosting on the letter L. Of course you can purchase these products at
This paper is soooo elegant and it goes perfectly with the Family MY WORD books! 
I am in the middle of writing an e-book on how to complete chipboard books. Look for this soon! You too can make one of these books (: 
I love how she combined the papers in this kit! 
This brad  is just gorgeous!!! I love how she layered the flowers. I hope you have enjoyed this project as much as I have enjoyed sharing it! Let me know what you think! 
P.S. Check out my website for these amazing projects (:

Holly Jolly Christmas Joy!

I made another Christmas canvas! I am having so much fun making these. The paper is from the Holly Jolly line found on my website, and so are the die cuts that match this paper. I used a Holly Jolly rub-on on a large white brad to make a matching brad! I also used a rub on for the joy in the lower left hand corner. The JOY title is a die cut that I used gold stickles on. I really love Christmas crafts to shine with glitter (: These canvases are so much prettier in person, I wish I was a better photographer ): Hope you enjoy this cheerful holiday project as much as I enjoyed putting it together (: I have added new rub-ons to my online store so be sure and have a look. These are the best rub-ons that I have used, so I know you will love them. I also have been getting several questions about my glue glider pro that I sell on my website. This baby is lightweight, filled with 40 feet of permatac adhesive in a 1/4" width, It can also use permanent refills that are 60 feet, I do have the refills and will be placing them on my website soon, it has a one year warranty, it is super easy to refill or switch cartridges, works on everything like a dream. If you are sick of buying adhesive and running out in the same week, you really need to buy a glue glider pro! I use everything I sell, so I am sure you will love it (:

Holly Jolly Canvas Christmas Fun!!!

I was sooo inspired by the beautiful canvas tutorial on SCS! I went out last night and bought 12 canvases in various sizes, LOL! This is a 11x14 sized canvas. I painted it with folk art brand acrylic paints in Linen, Teddy Bear. I also added a hint of Adirondack Shell Pink. I stamped snowflakes in whisper white SU craft ink. I used the beautiful new paper from my online store called Holly Jolly from Fancy Pants Designs. This paper is just soooo high quality. I also used the die cut set from the Holly Jolly line called Tags and Titles. I have so many more beautiful die cuts from this 12x12 sheet, I will be using them in other canvases. I used a part of Glitz Designs pink rhinestone strips called frosting. This high quality rhinestone really makes this project shine! I used SU rub ons and glitter glue to add a little unexpected shimmer. I used Fancy Pants Happy stamps found on my website (they are new). This canvas will fit three or four pictures beautifully. I would use my glue arts products to ensure these pictures will stay in place long term. I had so much fun creating this! I hope you like it (:

Santa is Distressing!!!!

This is a card I made for my SCS Bloggers Group #2. The challenge was hosted by Sara. The challenge was to use polka dots any way we like and ribbon. I used both in almost every layer. The paper is from Glitz Designs (you can buy some at my web store), the Santa stamp is from SU and the sentiment stamp is a $1 stamp from studio g, the primas are white and yellow and I used a polka dot stamp roller (also found on my site) from Glitz Designs. I love this roller and find that I reach for it all the time! I sprayed Tattered angels on the Santa to distress him a little. I also added a little pearl acrylic paint from Ranger to the edges of everything. This paper has its own unique style that I really like, so I tried to make a card that matched that style well. Hope everyone likes it. My 8 year old daughter can't decide if she likes it, or she is just too sweet to say she hates it, LOL! I like to try different styles to stretch myself a little. Hope you like it (: 
This is a cute picture of my youngest son and our doggy Bruno (: We have had Bruno for two years now and our children have just loved him! He is the sweetest dog and I just live him (: He always sits by my feet while I am working in my office or Blogging, so I had to share my furry friend with you (: 
I also wanted to mention that I got a huge shipment in yesterday so check out my website for some unique items! I will be adding rub-ons on Monday too. I have a beautiful kit in from Fancy Pants Designs called Arctic Chill. This set makes you want to snuggle up with a nice cup of hot tea and start creating! I also have a new line of winter paper in called Holly Jolly that is just gorgeous! This paper is double sided and each side is stunning! It's cold here and I am going to play with some of this new paper and Oh a new stamp set called Happy. Make a warm cup of something and go shopping! If you are listed on my Blog I will add in a sweet little surprise to your order (:

Christmas in a Bag!

This is a paper bag album I made using Glitz Designs Kringle paper. I also used several Stampin Up stamps and Glitz frosting (bling). 
This book was made with four basic lunch sacks, folded and tied with green fibers. I also inked the edges with real red ink from SU. I stamped a snowflake stamp with Whisper White from SU.
The last four pages have openings for tags to slide into. This is a fun way to "hide" pictures (: 

This book took one sheet of Kringle Ornaments, Kringle Santa, Kringle Flourish and Kringle Snowflakes with some squares left over. I used my Glue Glider Max to adhere the sheets of paper so my sheets are perfectly adhered to the paper bag. If you do not have a glue gun (it's wide tape) you really should give this amazing gun a try! If the Max is too big for you, try the little Glue Glider Max.
*If you are in the mood to do some shopping, check out my store HERE! 
I hope you like my holiday project! We will be making this in a smaller form for the Christmas Crafts program at my children's school. We have so many cute projects that we will be preparing for. I promise I will share those pictures with you this month as we work on them (:
