green, brown, & the cutest lil' monkey

i don't know when i got so into green and brown, but i really like the color combo on the two cards i just made. i bought this cute little monkey stamp, and i knew it would be perfect with basic grey's lime rickey collection, this is probably the cutest paper pack i've ever bought-i love it THAT much. the second card is made with the mm just chillin collection & of course -thickers! (i'm obsessed with thickers right now)

thanks for looking. leave a comment if you have any questions.

a few cards

here's a few cards i've done recently. different things inspire me when making cards. these in particular were inspired by different embellishments in my collection. thanks for looking

i got the "bee" stickers as a free gift with purchase with my last frugalities order, and the moment i saw them i knew i wanted to use them on a card.

i bought making memories just chillin collection die cuts on a whim one day at target. (i was actually there to buy a pilates mat but couldn't stop myself from wondering over to the scrapbook isle. honestly i didn't realize how cute the die cut set was until i got home. hmm . . . maybe i should randomly grab things more often LOL!). anyway, this butterfly jumped out at me. love the colors and the glitter on this embellishment.

i was flipping through my stamp collection and saw this love you tons stamp, and it made me think of my hippo sticker (i don't know if you can tell from the picture, but i wanted to use demensional adhesive on the hippo. so i stuck it to black cardstock, and trimed around it so that i could make my hippo pop off the page), and that's how this card came about. isn't that hippo adorable :)
thanks again for looking, leave comments if you'd like and if you have any questions.

birthday shopping

what's the best thing about birthday's? gift & shopping-right? right! so i thought i'd share some of the things i picked up with the scrapbook gift cards i received for my birthday. strictly scrapbooking in Cerritos, CA is, sadly, going out of business, but i was glad to catch the great sale they were having. i also did some shopping at sonja's scrapbook spot, tall mouse crafts & because you know i love a great deal- big lots & ebay

thanks for watching

good advice for all scrappers

i'm a big fan of kristina werner's. she does the finally friday video's at two peas in a bucket, as well as make a card monday video's for her own blog. while the card she made today is cute its not one of my favorites, however i wanted to share this video becuase i think she gave some of the best advice for all scrapbookers new and old alike. but particularly for new scrappers becuase we all get a little intimidated at first when we look around at all of the talented scrappers who've come before us.

chipboard, thickers, and other things that make me smile

For as long as I've been scrapbooking I've always tried to find a way to save money. There is always some new product or technique I want to try out, and it's easier to enjoy when I can stay within my budget. (it's not so easy when you want everything.) I am and always will be head over heels for Chipboard Letters, they are amazing. But my new found love are thickers. When American Crafts made these they opened the door to a new level for card making and scrapbooking. Also I have this wonderful scrap booking web-site that I love to buy things from because they definitely have some great deals and discounts. Its called frugalities, it is very user friendly and I just love the new and fun things they have to offer. So check them out and let me know what you think.
