I got to use these adorable little piggies and made this fun fold card!

I was using some papers from the American Crafts valentine collections of XOXO and Be My Valentine. I colored the piggies with my copics and then fussy cut them to add to the front panel . The enamel hearts are just from my stash!

Don’t forget to head over to the blog to play along with us and to see the other great creations from the Design Team to inspire you.

Love is in the Air

With Valentine’s day coming up so soon, you had to know that I would be posting another Love project.

Our challenge is up at Red Carpet Studio this week.  One of my favorite movies……LOVE ACTUALLY  is our theme!  We would like to see a project about love, something that you love, a place you love, something that you love to do, oh the love choices are endless for interpretation!

love, actually


This week we are lucky to be sponsored by Paper Nest Dolls! 

The Paper Nest Dolls


I’ve got a tag for you today.  I love to play with layers and techniques so I thought this would be fun.  I got this from a make and take class I did at a scrapbook convention one year.  I just loved playing with different mediums  and making them all come together.


There is some stamping and inking and modge podge (oh who doesn’t love MP).  I really love that mesh overlay.  I don’t play with mesh nearly enough.  Paper images and some pearls and lace for that vintage feel.  I wanted to give it some pop of color so I added some diecut hearts from my stash.  Just a lovely vintage Parisian feel to this.

I hope you will play along with us at RCS this week for a chance to win a great prize from our sponsor!  Show us what you love!!!

Kiss Me

Hello all! Happy Feburary.  Hard to believe it is here already.  My birthday is on Saturday so I am looking forward to celebrating with friends and family.  Of course Valentine’s Day is just around the corner as well.

Today’s sponsor spotlight for Lollipop Crafts is on Meljen’s Designs

so I used one of her great images to make this Valentine’s Day card for my Secret Pal….

The DP is just some scraps that I had in my Valentine’s box of things I’ve collected over the last little bit to make Valentine’s day Cards so I don’t know who it’s by.  The stamp set is from Stampin-Up.  I colored the image with my copics and then went over it with some fun red stickles to gloss it up!  It had to be a simple card otherwise it would cost so much to mail.  I hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to stop by the blog and check out the other great inspiration pieces from my team this week!

Speaking of copics

I forgot that i had this one.  I like it.  Do you??  This was a card that I did for my card challenge on Scrapshotz.com.  Not too shabby right??  Again, I’m on a learning curve here.  Someday I will be proficient (oooh big word for me).  Right now, I’m having fun learning to color again.  I feel like I’m 5!! LOL
