Sorry I haven't been around!!

Wow, it sure has been a while since I posted anything! Well I haven't designed anything in a while. I have been really lazy here lately. Laying around, reading books! I have been getting stuff together for the Girl Scout Day Camp. I will be leading the boys this year and I have a lot of fun stuff planned! I have enlisted the help of my 12 year old son. I enjoy spending time with him planning everything. He said he is the Vice President of Day Camp!! Then he called me the other day from his Dad's and asked if he could skip Day Camp because his Dad signed him up for basketball. He LOVES BB so I couldn't say no. But I was a bit heartbroken because this was something that was allowing us to spend one on one time together. We very rarely get to. But who knows, maybe the schedules will work out that he can do both!! I did design a t-shirt for the boys but it is in svg form so I don't know how I can put it on here. But I will takes pics when the boys airbrush them and post them! Well, that is all of the blubbering I am going to do for now so have a great day everyone and keep on creating!!

More and More Mats!!

I am having a ball creating these mats for Fat Cats! I made a couple more of the red and white ones and a couple of these ones. It is great that with todays technology I can just snap a picture of it and show it to the world in a matter of min. Also, I don't have to get into my car with expired tags to run over and show my Mom! I have to pass everything by her first!

Fishing Fun

This is a sample of one of the Photo Mats that I am making to sell at the lake. I got the title from MTC free SVG's and just welded the shadow to a corner rectangle in red cardstock. I cut the letters out in white cardstock, added some fishing paper and my photo! (All of the said cuts were done with my Cricut and Make The Cut software.)

And the other one I made for Dan, the owner of Fat Cats. I hope he likes it! It actually started out as another mat but I sort of messed up so that is how Dan got his. I just used Bazzil green cardstock for the base, embossed the letters with gold embossing powder from Stamping Up and added some stickers from my stash. The photo is of the newly built and long awaited bait house.

Copic Card

This is a card that I made using the following Stampabilities stamps, Moe Monkey-Tori Tiger-Ellie Elephant-Leo Lion. They are 50% off at Hobby Lobby this week. I colored my stamped images with Copic Markers. I forgot to write down which ones I used!! The paper that I stamped on is Bazzil from Pizzaz It. I find this to be the best paper for Copics. Everyone is different but there is no "bleeding" outside of the lines with this paper so it is much easier to use. The card itself is just some white cardstock from my stash as is the brown ribbon. The paper that I matted the images on is Dark Brown Polka Dots from My Minds Eye. This was also on sale at Hobby Lobby this week. In hindsight I would have liked to have ran the brown paper through my Cuttlebug with the dot folder and used a different color of ribbon. I hope you enjoy my card!
