Anything goes and so it shall.

For Simon's anything goes this week I decided to add my paper pag shopping album which is a play off of Kathy Orta's build. I love all the different pockets and places to put things! It is a very fun project!

This album sold for $80 at the Dogs With Wings Silent Auction this year! I'll have to make more for next year! Check out my fundraising blog for more info about the charity!

Stripes for Simon

For Simon's this week, they wanted to see stripes. I made a couple of cards using my new spellbinders, some paper, and a few stamps. I really love this spellbinders! It cuts so clean and crisp. I bought some copic markers and have tried them out. I think I need more colors now!

Halloween and my new spellbinders

Well I thought I would try something new so I have added Spellbinders to my tools! I love it, totally love it! I have had several die cutting systems and find this one to be the most accurate and the best cut.

I made this Halloween card for this weeks entry over at Simons! I will play some more with my spellbinders, but for now I really liked the few dies I used. I of course used the large circle set, picot circles, and the grand large labels sets. I hope everyone likes it. It is again something different for me as I'm not quite into the whole Halloween thing but it was fun to do!

Bling'ie presents.

For my mom's 60th birthday, I made her these two pictures to go up on a very empty and lonely wall! I didn't get such great pictures of it because of the glare, but you will see I used Tim Holtz's resist paper on the one and a combination of paper and a previous project together as the other picture. I used a lot of bling, flowers, brads, and a bit of ribbon. Check out Simon's Blog for more sparkles and bling!

I love the colors in this one. It is so bright! The background was made with alcohol inks. I love that look! Added flourishes are stamped, bling, and flowers and brads to accent.
