Just checking in...

Stampin' with La'Diva

Hello Everyone,

I hope all is well with you and yours.  Sorry about the delay in things, I had emergency oral surgery last week and my class assignments are due not only today, but others this week.  I thank you for your patience and I promise you as soon as I am done with my last paper, I will POST! 

We had our first snowfall here in Michigan and it's so beautiful.  I am hoping we, my job, have a snow day tomorrow so I can complete the rest of my classwork. If not, then I am going to spread it out till Wednesday, which sucks!

Anyway, have a good one and I will be back! *giggles*

RAK Creations

Stampin' with La'Diva

Hello Everyone,

I wanted to share with you what I did over the weekend.  Here are two of recent creations:

Here is a photo of  RAK I had to with a Digital Stamp by Tiddy Inks.  I used my Big Shot to cut the Top Note Die from Stampin' Up and used red cardstock to create the box (see below).  The ribbon was purchased at Michael's.  I also used copics markers to color the elephant.  I used Glossy Accents to cover the balloons.  I placed some "bling" to the eyes.  I also used Photoscape to add wording on the elephant.  I used a oval nestability to cut out the Ellie the elephant.

This is how the box looks when it is opened.  I added some hard candy on the inside.  Emmmm.... 

Here is a close-up

Another shot.

This is the second RAK I did for a Flower Swap.  I purchased a pack of notepads from a dollar store.  I removed the wire from the notepad and after completion, I replaced it with some metallic elastic chording.  My mom created the flower pen.  I absolutely love those and they write so well. 

I stamped every page in this notepad with this flower image.

I purchased the paper at Joann Fabrics.  I took a circle punch and punched out some of the circles in the patter and covered them with Glossy Accents.  Afterwards, I popped them on the notepad, after covering it with pattern paper and added some bling ot it.  I also used a circle punch to cut out my "You're So Special" from a Hero Arts birthday stamp set.  I did some faux stitching and added some bling to that.

Thanks for viewing and if you have any questions, please let me know. 

Thanks for comin' by!

Can you say Hero Arts? I love love love Hero Arts! So on that note, stay tuned and I will do a YouTube of the drawing.

Mojo Monday

Stampin' with La'Diva

Welcome to another week of Mojo!  This week Mary Fish stepped in with this modern sketch for us to play with!  As always, if you don't have a particular shape, feel free to substitute with the supplies you have on hand.  The most important rule is to have fun! ;-)

To play along with Mojo Monday, just make a project using the provided sketch and upload it to your blog or online gallery. Then leave a link to your project using the linky widget at the bottom of this post.

There is no time limit - you can always play any week at any time, but I will close the linky form on Sunday night at 8:00pm (Mountain). That way there's no confusion which linky is the current one. If you upload to online galleries, please use keyword/tag MOJO153.

I am back!

Hello Scrapbooking Fam!

Sorry for being away so long.  I was diagnosed with Lupus last year and I am still trying to manage and control it.  Basically, trying to negotiate and live with it!  :-)  I think we have an understanding now.  We have come to a conclusion that we know what the other wants, so we will work on trying to meet the requirements.

So on that note, I spent this weekend at the Heirloom show in Novi, MI.  It was fantastic!  I cannot wait to use some of the products I purchased. 

Well, it will be a little while before I post anything, but rest assure... it will be soon enough!

While I am creating, I would love to hear from you all!  What have you been up to?  What's been going on with you?

My Aloha RAK - April Submission

I created the Bon Appetit! card, the card holder purse, and I stamped the 6 images for my RAK buddy.  She sent me an e-mail thanking me and it was so heartfelt.  This was my first RAK play and I had fun.  I really enjoyed it and made a new scrappin' buddy.  :-)
