Saturday Sneak Peek -- Love is in the Air...Week 3

Image
Good evening everyone.  It seems posting later in the day on Saturdays is becoming the norm instead of the occasional.  Thank goodness no one else has to post this but me so it is okay if I'm a bit later than usual.  Since there are a hundred other things I need to accomplish in the next hour and a half, I better get moving.

It is time for the final sneak peek in our Love is in the Air collection.  Check out what is in store for this coming Wednesday...
This might get interesting.  Heck, who am I kidding.  Your guesses are always interesting.  So, if you think you might know what the OVERALL image may be, no matter how outrageous the guess, please offer it up by Tuesday, Feb. 25th at 12:00 pm EST (noon) in a comment on this post to be eligible to win a possible goody.


Don't Forget... There is still an opportunity to win a copy of Naomi's latest release, 'Love Struck Bears'.  Click HERE and scroll down to find out how.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful…

Crop-A-Dile"s Extra Creative Side/ CAS Card

Image
Hello and thank you for visiting today!!!

I had fun creating this CAS card , I seen a similar card in "Scrapbooking and Cards Today" magazine and had to make it, I love the soft yellow mixed with brown and white and I created it in all but 30 minutes! I choose to only put "BE" as the sentiment on the front of the card as I can later put anything I want on the inside may it be Amazing, Creative, You, the list can go on.



To create the holes in the yellow paper I used my Crop-A-Dile,  I used both size holes and punch them randomly. I never thought to use this tool for decoration, it will no longer be sitting on my shelf for months without use for I rarely ever use brads.
Have a great day!!!

Team Bugalug is up with creations to showcase Naomi's sweet new image this week...
Judith decided to work with the coloured version of the bears.   Check out that background!  The colours suit the image perfectly and I love that they are going down a trail in a different kind of fantasy world.  Great digital embellishments add the perfect touch.  You can check out all the details of Judith's creation by visiting her …

Dedicated To A Very Special Boy - Colin

This is my second post today, if you missed out on my written card tutorial "XOXO" go HERE If you missed out on Saturday's Sneak Peak, go HERE
Hello Again! I generally don't do two posts in one day but today is different, while visiting blogs today, Vicky over at "Crafting Vicky" had written a post about a young boy whom she learned about on FB, his name is Colin, this is his story written by his mom...

 I am Colin's mom, I created this page for my amazing, wonderful, challenging son who is about to turn 11 on March 9th. Because of Colin's disabilities, social skills are not easy for him, and he often acts out in school, and the other kids don't like him. So when I asked him if he wanted a party for his birthday, he said there wasn't a point because he has no friends. He eats lunch alone in the office everyday because no one will let him sit with them, and rather than force someone to be unhappy with his presence, he sits alone in the office.…

XOXO / Written Card Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog, thanks for dropping by! Today I am showing  a card  I made for my sister on Valentine's Day, the nontraditional colors makes this card suitable for lots of occasions don't you think?

I was excited to play with  "liquid embossing" which only cost $2.00 at the Bi-rite, you get three in a pack, now that is a deal! I cover the "Heart Bouquet" digital image (created by moi) with "Liquid Embossing" and fell in love with it, it looks like those puffy stickers we had when we were kids, I was a serious collector and always had so much fun trading with friends.






  I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge: "Anything Goes" , optional - use a heart




Products Used:

Card Stock: White , light blue, dark blue
