I've been seeing flowers like this around the scrapbooking community lately and wanted to give one a try. I used a piece of fabic to make mine and love how it came out!

My sister was standing in line for the tickets and they announced who was on the show.... STEVE CARELL! Are you kidding me?! I love him! And James Taylor! and some girl from Twilight... I'm not into the books/movies, so that one didn't excite me as much, lol.
It feels like I haven't been home since Friday! Oh wait, I really haven't been! My sister and brother-in-law went to Vegas for the weekend so we had the mini one. She is just so darn goofy! We had too much fun with her.. she would wake up from a nap and say "Can we go back to your house now?" lol. Luckily we live right around the block!!
I am hoping to make a tutorial tonight, but we'll see how much longer I'm awake =]

Hi everybowy! hehe, everybowy... that's how the baby says everybody, it's the cutest! She always tells us "sing with me everybowy" lol.. we're guessing she gets that from Sesame Street. I don't think she knows theres any other shows on tv besides that one!
Anyway! It's such a nice day today! It's 77 and pretty much exactly like yesterday but not humid, so it's just perfect.. and here I am sitting inside on my laptop, lol. The little was is napping so Auntie is resting too =]
I made another video too! This one is a continuation from my first one where I made Newspaper Flowers. If you missed it, check it out here..
Here's the continued one.. it's the card I made for my Mom for Mother's Day with the Newspaper Flowers from the video above.
This last video is a tutorial on how to do the kissing technique for stamping. It also includes a technique I stumbled upon that kinda plays off the kissing technique.

I used Core'dinations cardstock and embossed circles on it. If you've never used it, you must! It's at Joann's, and their the cardstock that are 5 for $1, so they're not more expensive or anything. The thing about this cardstock is there core is colored. On the back of this cardstock is grey, so when I embossed, then sanded it, the grey showed through.
They have a vintage collection, which is what the black cardstock is. They have a white wash collection, where the front is white, but when you sand/tear, it's the color of the back and there's the gemstone collection, which I used under the pink printed paper that says Happy Birthday. It has shimmer type look to it.
I then used Frosted Lace Stickles in some of the circles to add even more sparkle!
I still have no clue what these little metal embellishments are called! They're the kind of things that are on picture frames so you can hang them on the wall... anyone know what they're called? I just think they're the cutest!!

I used the "Friendship Garden" stamp set I bought a couple weeks ago, that I shared with you. Isn't that vase WAAYYY too cute!? I put crackle accents on the top of it, which I guess isn't good for a vase to be cracked.. lol, but I like it.
The flower is from K&Co.'s Poppyseed line. I love the colors of that line!
Night Night! I have a card to share with you tomorrow as well, but I need to go to sleep now, cause I get to watch the little one tomorrow.. yay.

My Mom taught the baby to say "I love you a bazillion", but since she can't say her L's yet, she says "I ove you a bazi-in". She also colored on the inside of this one too.
Do you ever make a project and are not too sure how it's going to end up when you start it, but then when it's finished you can't believe you actually made it? lol. That's pretty much how I felt about this card.
This is for The Sweet Shop's Sketch Challenge Blog #55. Here's the sketch...On Friday night my Dad asked me to make him a card for Mom. Dad always goes to the store and picks out his own cards for each of us. Then writes in it, better than Hallmark ever could, and usually makes us cry, but happy tears!!
I showed you all this one a while back.. it was for my Grandma, she also got a Klayre hand print inside her card!!
