Been a while

                                                       TEA AND COFFEE POT CARDS

Hi all,

I know I have been absent for a while. Things have been crazy. I haven't had time to create anything the past few weeks. I just found in my draft posts this  card that I made while back while I was playing with my Faber Castell Polychromos Color Pencils

But for the rest of this year my posts will be sparse, especially as the holidays are approaching. As well I won't be offering classes by mail for the remainder of the year, besides the regular Creativity by Mail program. One of the reasons is that with my last class USPS proved to not be reliable with the last kits by mail I sent. Some got lost, some got delivered to wrong addresses, and majority of them were delivered way too late. So, since the holiday season is starting and people are mailing more, we'll just taking a break from mailing anything.

As well, I have been busy with my kids. Last week hubby was out of town and  I was alone with the girls, so we did a lot of fun stuff, which left me with no time to create. And my almost 3yr old is now getting into crafting etc, so it's fun to make stuff with her. And the time spent with her is so special.
On Saturday after the gym I took her to Paper Source and she picked couple stamps she liked and couple packs of notecards (pink and purple of course and yellow), so we'll be making tonight cards for her teachers, whom she loves. 

As well, besides all the Holiday craziness, we are preparing for the arrival of baby C in early February.

Creative Crew November Projects

                                                                            TEA AND COFFEE POT CARDS

Hi all and happy Sunday! 
Sorry I didn't post yesterday. The weekend was just so crazy. And I didn't get a chance to post my Creation Station project. I was so tired when we got home last night that I went to bed at 10.30pm shortly after the kiddos went to bed. This preggo lady was TIRED! 

So, today I am sharing the Creative Crew projects, and the focus was Christmas. I used bunch of goodies from the Holiday Mini catalog.

Blended Bloom box

                                                                              TEA AND COFFEE POT CARDS

Hi all and Happy Friday and Happy Halloween.
We had fun tonight with the  kids going Trick or Treat-ing. It was our first time, and my older daughter loved it, she loved getting so much candy. But what surprised me, first she would get candy for her little sister and then for herself. She is growing so fast! I have a little box to share that I decorated using the Blended Bloom set, that I colored with the Blendabilities and layered it together. The sentiment is from Good Greetings set that is a promotional set during October for hosting workshop of $300+.

I will be back tomorrow with my Creative Crew creations for November. ;) And then on Sunday it's the Creation Station blog hop, so it's a busy weekend.

Hello Darling meets Gold Soiree

                                                          TEA AND COFFEE POT CARDS

Hi all and Happy Monday! 
I know I am a slacker. I was busy working on the Creativity by Mail Projects that I didn't get around posting on my blog. 
Today I have another 3-d project (which is very simple). I made this little gift bag using the Gold Soiree dsp. Then decorated it using the Hello Darling set, some gold ribbon and gold sequin trim. 
Pretty simple. For the bag I used one of the We R Memory keepers punch boards ( the one that is for bags- not sold through SU!) 
The Hello Darling sentiment and part of the "flower" are embossed using Gold embossing powder.

For you box

                                                          TEA AND COFFEE POT CARDS

Hi all,
A quick post for today. I was planning to post this earlier, but the day just slipped by.
Here's a simple box I made using some stuff from the main catalog. Sorry no Holiday catalog goodies for the next few days. I will post the names of the sets and dsp tomorrow. It's 1am at the moment and I need to get up at 6am, so the bed is calling my name ;)

Amazing Birthday

                                                          TEA AND COFFEE POT CARDS

Hi all and happy Monday! 
It's a new week and the weather here is just gorgeous! Sunny and warm (not hot, just warm like upper 60s - lower 70s).
We had a busy weekend, and just winding down now. 
Today I have to share another of my display samples from Convention, as well this card was my swap. I used Amazing Birthday Set to create it. The colors are most of the 2013-2015 in Colors (Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe and Strawberry Slush, and added some Crumb Cake, Crumb Cake makes everything better ;))

Wondrous Wreath- Creation station blog hop

Hi all,
Welcome to another round of Creation Station blog hop. This week we are featuring the Wondrous Wreath set and the coordinating dies.
For my card I went out on a limb and created a non-traditional Christmas card using All is Calm dsp, and soft sky, lost lagoon and silver. I cut the sentiment from Silver foil.

Well....that's all I have for you today, but there is more inspiration right around the corner - head to the next blog by Kathy Kartak. Or put it in reverse to see Justin's creations for this week.
