Dashing Deer Die Set Christmas Card

And here it is, and here it is, boom chick-a-boom boom boom chick-a-boom boom! Whoa, I love it!  Starry nights, Christmas nights, Family fun! OK, this didn't start out so good.  I have a new medium that I just am no good at....yet! I started out using my Gel Press (JM-0107).  Here is my first attempt:   The one on the left I did on the Gel Press....I turned it over and did the one on the right without the gel press.  (I have seen many designs done on the Gel Press that are gorgeous, but....mine is not there yet.  At least not in my opinion.  Lot to learn there - another day. So I took the one on the right and ran with it.  Here are some more pictures: Awesome AND: Look at the reflection on my flat painted shelf!  So cool, that is the shimmer from our Gold Mirror paper (CS-0136) AND....Up close and personal! So happy how this guy turned out. Eazy P

My New Adventure In The Craft World - Chalk Couture

Oh, wow, this is so awesome.  Writing on chalkboard is what's in now, but my handwritting just doesn't have that professional, artistic look.  That is where Chalk Couture comes in.  This is a new company that uses screen printing like transfers.  (that are reusable 20 - 50 times)  Say what!  They can be used on chalkboards purchased from the company or you can do it yourself on prepared wood, chalkboard, windows, mirrors and even material! One of the neat things is, once the chalk paste is dry, you can't mess it up.  You cannot smear it!  But.....if you want to change the sign you can with water!  Win, win!  Say you want to change things for holidays for example. But you also can make things permanent; for example on wood by putting a sealant like lacquer.  So, so cool, I love it and I am very excited to get my starter kit!  I will try to make a video when I receive this!  Here is their logo: I have this off to the right if you want to check out my store.

Noel Wreath

Well, this card was fun but a bit labor intensive!  Took me a few days but I do like it.  It's a good thing because I made 12!  LOL This all started when I was making cards for a friend and I used the mirror paper (CS-0137) for a circle frame.  Well, I ended up with 10 circles of Mirror paper (It is a little pricey) so I needed to make something with it. I started by stamping the image (Noel Wreath AT-0267) and coloring with our Color Burst pencils (JM-0077) while watching TV.  (Maybe that's why it took so long)  I blended the color on Santa, but not the animals.  I thought it looked more like the texture of fur, feathers etc.  Then I fussy cut them all out! On to the next step:   I die cut the wreath (DI-0250 Medallion Wreath Die Set) and colored the bow with our Cranberry Bliss Silk (IP-0094)  That stuff that looks like nail polish. Do you see the silver mirror paper?  or and yea, I had to die cut 12 black circles a little bigger than the mirror paper. 

Bible Journaling Before, During and After Hurricane Irma - Brody's Birthday!

This is how I spent my days before Hurricane Irma.  It really helped. Then the day of: Sydni did this page the day of the hurricane Irma while I did..... Always be full of joy in the Lord.  I say it again - Rejoice! Philippians 4:4 this page Don't worry about anything, instead, pray about everything. Philippians 4:6 While we were doing this Brody did: This....Dad and Sydni are Photo bombing  :-)  It's also Brody's Birthday, boy will he have a story to tell!  Mommy was putting puzzles together and making Brody's chocolate chip cookie cake - Yum  Daddy and Grandpa were always checking around to keep us safe! After Irma, I did this I used our September BloomBox from FSJ called Hello Sunflower and Dandelion Wishes.  I just stamped with VersaMark and used a dauber to place our Pan Pastels over the image.  Later I sprayed with hair spray to set.  Love Pan P
