14 Days of Valentine's

Hi Everyone,

I've been following a few of my favorite bloggers and love how they do the 12 days of Christmas with a project each day right up to the day of. So, I wanted to challenge myself and do something like that for Valentine's Day. What I'm going to do is post something everyday starting on February 1st. up until February 14th., so 14 projects. That is going to be fun for me and I hope you will enjoy seeing what I create.

Thanks and have a great day.

Work of Art Flower

Hi Everyone,

It's amazing what you can learn from You Tube. I search for ideas when I get crafting blocks. You know them times where you want to create something, but nothing comes to mind. Well, that's what is so great about the crafting world. You can search and find things to make, then make them your own.

I made this card for one of my favorite bloggers Sam at www.pootles.co.uk. I absolutely love her blog and all of her creations. Not to mention, she is such a sweet person. I mailed it out today. I know she loves rainbows, so I'm sure she will love my card.















The video I found on you tube is using the Work of Art stamp set from Stampin' Up. That's one thing I have to start doing more is to think outside the box. It's amazing the different things you can make with certain stamps and dies other than what they are obviously made for. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. I added the adhesive embellishments, also from Stampin' Up and the center of the flower is a glittered circle that I had in my stash. It came with glittered flowers and hearts also.

So get some inspiration from other crafters when your mojo leaves you and enjoy making projects your own.

Thanks for stopping by. See you soon.

Happy Birthday

Hi Everyone,

I made this cute birthday card for a friend. I saw how to make it on you tube. It looks like there are gifts inside when you open the card. The tutorial was a Christmas card, but I changed mine to a birthday card. 

The cute panda and the sentiment are called Party Pandas, it's a free set from Stampin' Up through Sale A Brations. The paper I used is from a 6 x 6 paper stack by Echo Park Paper Company called Birthday Wishes, designed by Alisha Gordon. I love it because it is double sided. The ribbon is from Stampin' Up, along with the everyday label punch.


Thanks for stopping by, have a great week.

GIVEAWAYS

Happy New Year to you all. I hope you all had wonderful holidays.

I've been going through my stamps and dies that have just been sitting on my shelves. When I first started scrapping and stamping, I had to have everything, you know how that is right? but, over time, I realized that I don't have to have everything, especially if I'm not using them as much as I thought I would. Some of the items are brand new and have never been used. I know :( some have been very lightly used. I've decided that I will just give them to anyone (fellow crafters) who would love to have them.

So, with that being said, you will not know what you are getting, it might be stamps or dies or both, some of them are a set and some are just individual. FREE IS FREE though right? :) Just know that I have some Peachy Keen, some My Creative Time, some Stampin' Up and some generic. They all come from a clean, smoke free home. Also, the dies can be used in any machine, Cuttlebug, Sizzix Big Shot, etc.

If you are interested, all you have to do is leave a comment saying:  I am interested. Please leave your email address, then I will email you to get your address and send you something :) When what I have runs out, I will post.

Thank you in advance for your interest.

I hope to start posting some creations. I've made quite a few things and should have been taking pictures to post them, but didn't even think about it.

Have a great week.

Lisa :)

Beautiful You

Hi Everyone,

It's been so long since I've posted on my blog. I've missed it so much. I've had so much going on, but I am going to try to start posting my creations again.

This card was made with the Beautiful You stamp set from Stampin' Up. I stamped one of the girls in Versamark Ink and embossed her with silver embossing powder. The background paper is also from Stampin' Up, I think it was so fitting since the girl has an umbrella. The pattern looks like rain drops. The hello die cut is from the awesome Script Greeting Die Set from Right at Home Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by, hope to get back to crafting a lot more so that I can share my creations with you. Have a great day.

Another Paper Bag Album - Birthday Gift

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here sharing my project for this month. My heart is very heavy and heartbroken at the loss of our dear friend Sheila. This will be my last project as one of her designers. It has been a pleasure being chosen by Sheila and getting to post what I love doing so that others could see. I will continue to try to post projects as I do them on my blog and I will still visit everyone as much as I can to admire their projects and make comments.

All the paper to cover the pages are from paper stacks called the immortal love from DCWV and La Creme from DCWV. This is the front of the album. I punched holes on the side and added grommets. I tied red, black and white ribbon to each hole. The colors are the recipients favorite colors. I had that flower in my stash, so I added a pearl to the middle of it and adhered it, along with the strip of red ribbon and I also added pearls to that.

The first page, I had these plastic die cuts, so I glued them down. I stamped the sentiment, which is from My Creative Time. I added a rhinestone to the i and added heart stickers from my stash.

The second page I added a tag I die cut and embossed, the tag die is from My Creative Time and the embossing folder is from Stampin' Up. I punched out flowers from black glitter paper with a punch from Stampin' Up and added rhinestones.

The third page I die cut the balloons, which are from My Creative Time and added rhinestones and twine. The cake is a sticker from my stash.

The fourth page, I die cut this awesome shape, the die cut is from My Creative Time. It comes with layers which I layered a pretty scene of trees on the first one and on the second one I stamped a sentiment which is an older stamp from Stampin' Up.

The fifth page, I stamped the sentiment, which is from Stampin' Up, The f is for the recipient's name, it is a chip board letter, I used a red marker to color it and adhered it on top of a strip of DSP which is from Stampin' Up. I added some silver thread, also from Stampin' Up. The bottom sentiment is a sticker from my stash.

The sixth page I stamped all her children's names with Versamark and embossed them with silver embossing powder and my heat gun. The panda stamp was a gift. I added some red stickles to the heart. The hearts and cupcake are stickers that I had in my stash. The bird paper clip is from Stampin' Up.

The seventh page I stamped a wreath which is from My Creative Time and I cut it out using a scallop punch from Stampin' Up. The sentiments and the little flower are stamps, from the same set as the wreath. The flower on the bottom is a die from My Creative Time, I cut it out twice, adhered it together and cut out the middle piece with black glitter paper and adhered it.

This is a gift card holder die from My Creative Time, I embossed it with the same folder from Stampin' Up. I tied a bow with twine and used a glue dot to adhere it to the clip, both are from Stampin' Up. I put a gift card in it for her as another gift.

The eighth page I die cut the frame from My Creative Time, I stamped the first flower and cut out three from a punch from Stampin' Up. I added a red brad to hold them together. On the bottom, I cut a strip of acetate with black flourish design  which I had and stapled it down. I added washi tape from Stampin' Up to hide the staples, then added a glass gem to the middle.

The ninth page I added a strip of white card stock and used the banner punch from Stampin' Up to punch out 4 banners. I glued them to red and white twine and tied a bow. The bottom, I just cut a strip of DSP and adhered it down.

The tenth page I added a doily, some DSP and another banner strip. I used My Creative Time's dies and cut out the crown and the scissors. I figured she would be a Queen for the day and she is a hairdresser. the three embellishments are Jolee's stickers.

The back of the album, I just added a piece of black ribbon to hide the seam of the different DSPs.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Your visits mean a lot. Have a wonderful weekend.

Another Card Party














Hi Everyone,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room with my monthly project. Thanks Sheila and I hope you are doing well. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I went to another card party and these are the cards we made. It's fun because a lot of the stamp sets we use, I don't own so it's nice to stamp new things. I haven't had too much time to play in my craft room because I've been busy with appointments and to be honest, it's been too darn hot. I hope you all are doing well and are enjoying each day.

Have a great weekend and Happy Fourth of July to you all.
