Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Tea Dye
Assorted Tim Holtz Stamps
Tim Holtz Paper Distressing Tool
Paper Studio Brads


Razzill Dazzill Bazzill: Belated Photos

I completely forgot that I had taken photos at the Razzill Dazzill Bazzill class with Karrie Allen at Scrapp'n Savvy. My mom and I invited a few ladies from, as well as a friend of mine from high school, to come with us. I don't have photos of the completed layouts, but you can view them here on Karrie's blog.

Look how much fun we had :)

Hey Everyone!

I'm preparing to do a few changes to my blog. I want to apologize in advance if anything should go wrong.

Wish me luck!

Brightly Distressed: A video tutorial

did it! My husband was so sweet and bought me the Flip Mino HD video camera, so I had to shoot a tutorial this weekend. We had some family stuff going on, so I didn't get it done until last night, but it's up on YouTube none the less. I was SO nervous, so I know I sound a little strange. I'm hoping practice will improve my movie skills :)

 Enjoy, and please subscribe, rate, and comment :)

EDIT: The audio is fixed!

Mini Shopping Haul Video

Hey there!

Welp, my mom and I spent the entire day shopping since we had the day off from work, so I took the opportunity when we got home to shoot my first video. I think I sound rediculous, but I'm hoping that's just my opinion :) I've since uploaded to my YouTube Channel. Be looking out for more, and better, videos!

You Make My World Happy!

I thought I'd swing by real fast and show everyone the card that I made for my husband's valentine. I used the Paisly Cricut Cartridge, paper from the Die Cuts With a View Rustic Premium Stack, and a stamp from Hero Arts Woodland Creatures stamp sets.

Rigo was my first Valentine, and will be my last. Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Spend it with those that you love!

Above Rubies Studio Design Team: Wish Me Luck!

Have you all missed me??? I know it's been a few days since I last posted, but I can finally post photos of what I've been up to! Megan, from Above Rubies Studio, emailed me last week and informed me that she was accepting applications for her design team. How could I turn down such an opportunity! I didn't want to post photos of my projects all over the internet until I had submitted my application, and just a few minutes ago, I DID! Here is some of what I submitted:

This was my very first layout that wasn't from some sort of kit, or shown at a class :) I used the Paisley Cricut Cartridge for those super cute muchrooms, and the paper and ribbon is from the My Minds Eye - Enlightened set.

This layout was so much fun! That adorable face plastered all over it is my dog, Jack. He's no longer with us, but I just HAD to do a layout with that photo. On his first birthday, we dressed him up in a Build-A-Bear tuxedo, and took photos of him :) I used the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge and Bazzill cardstock for the circles, Tim Holtz stamps for the background images, Prima flowers, and Spare Parts brads. The title was done with Tim Holtz Mini Grungeboard letters that were embossed with Zing embossing powder.

Assistance: Taken Literally

My mom has transformed my former room into an awesome craft room! Since I live so close, I'll be moving all of my crafting supplies to her house, and out of my teeny tiny crafting space!

So, I sat downwith my mom today, in our new room, ready to start designing some work for an upcoming (SEEECRET) event...and I quickly realized that I had forgotten to get my Tim Holtz supplies out of my desk drawer at home. So, I picked up my phone, and dialed my dear dear hubby. He said that bringing it to me was no problem, and asked where it was. I told him that the entire second drawer of my desk held all of my Tim Holtz material, and that he could just throw it in a bag to bring it over. Soon after that phone call, he showed up at my mom's house, and walked into our craft room with a big grin on his face, holding this:

That's right, he thought it would be funny to bring me the actual drawer. What a goof...

Off to create :)
