I am such a bad blogger!

Life has just been crazy the past few weeks. Just when I think I'll have a few minutes to catch up on my blogs, I blink and a couple of weeks have gone by! Due to being busy with vacations, getting kids ready for back to school and well just life in general I haven't done as much creating as I would like to here lately. I have a couple of pics on the camera and will share them shortly. So please be patient and I'm sure once the kids are back in school next week I'll be able to get back into some semblance of a schedule. I hope everyone is enjoying the last bit of summer.

Robot Journal

I created this journal for a very special little boy in my life. He recently turned 8...so I guess not so little....and I created this journal for him to write down his memories from his recent baptism. I was worried that maybe a journal wouldn't be well received by a boy as much as it would be by a girl, but no worries...he loved it. :) I had a lot of fun making it. I found the robot paper at my LSS and just fell in love with it. It's just so fun. I don't remember the brand though. The journal is of course one from the dollar spot at Michael's.

Supplies Used:
Papers: Stampin' Up CS (for the life of me can't remember the color....it was an in color in the last catalog), Robot paper from my LSS
Stamps: Recollections Robots
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, CTMH Sorbet
Misc: Ribbon, antique brass hardware, Liquid Glass, Buttons, Scrapper's Floss, Prismacolor Markers

Beary Best Thank You Card

I created this card for the girls at girl's camp to write thank you notes for all of those who volunteered to help out and helped them to have a great week at camp. My daughter and a couple of the other girls colored the image in on each card...I of course made these at the last minute and didn't have time to color them in. :) I am pleased with how they turned out though. I just love this Beary Best stamp set. Oh, and because I was super short on time, I used premade (monogrammed) cards from the dollar spot at Michael's. Nice textured cream color card base and they came with envelopes. The paper covered up the monogram. For a buck, you just can't get much better than that! :-D

Supplies Used:
Papers: CTMH Veranda
Inks: CTMH Juniper, Memento Tuxedo Black
Stamps: CTMH Beary Best, Thank You (on inside)
Misc: Bazzill Flowers, CTMH Bigger Brads

Color Challenge Card.....Finally

Yeah, I know, it's about time. Life has just been crazy. Anyways, here is the card I created for the color challenge that I presented a couple of weeks ago. I made this card for our friends to say thank you for hosting our family for the weekend recently. Okay, well nearly a month ago now. I'm telling you, time just goes by way too quickly!!! :-D

I created the background by stamping the "stitching" on glossy cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Then using post it notes to mask off each area, I sponged the ink on until I got the intensity of color I wanted. I really like how it turned out. :)


Supplies Used:
Papers: CTMH Key To My Heart paper pack, Spring Iris CS, Buttercup CS.
Inks: CTMH Spring Iris, Buttercup, Sweet Leaf, Sorbet, Memento Tuxedo Black.
Stamps: CTMH Togetherness, Delight In Everything, Thank You
Misc: Liquid Glass, Tim Holtz Acrylic Tag, Ribbon, CTMH Brads.
