Toilet Paper Mini Album

Hi everyone,
I have been so busy lately and I have been in a bit of a crafting funk. Does that happen to anyone else or just me? I did make a ton of shirts for my daughter's dance team and I did a little scrapbook to share. There aren't any pictures in this one because I made it for a swap.
Here is the video.




I only have a couple of weeks left in the school year and then hopefully a little bit more time for crafting. I do have a few projects in the works and will be posting them here on the old blog. Thanks for visiting me!

CardzTV Card Challenge: Mother's Day

Hi everyone,
Today I am so happy to share a project for the CardzTV card challenge. The challenge this week is Mother's Day which is just around the corner! I am so proud of myself because I used some crafty products that I bought at the Scrapbook Expo. I used this Sherrie Baldy My-Besties stamp set and my Zig watercolor markers. I also used two stamps sets from CardzTV.

I also used the Sizzix step card die that I also got at the Expo. I don't want to do what I did last year which was buy stuff at the Expo and then never use it. Here is my card:
I finished off with some little bees from Lawn Fawn and some stickles on my cute image. Thanks so much for visiting and be sure to visit CardzTV and join in the challenge and you could win a set of CardzTV stamps!

Happy Day

Hello,

Do you ever make cards inspired by the scraps on your desk? That's kind of how this card came about. As I looked at the paper left from the stacks I was using, I came up with this card.
I used Lawn Fawn sunshine birds, die cuts and Mama Elephant Landscape trio. I colored in my birds with copics.

I have a card share video that shows some of the cards that I have made recently in a little more detail.


Thanks so much for looking.
