Last Minute Gift Idea





I cannot believe Christmas is only 3 days away!  My how time flies.  I needed some last minute gifts to give to some kids and I thought since our youth is so into reading books (insert sarcasm here), that I would make some book markers.  I used an image that is from AiFactory as it's just a simple image that I printed in black and white, punched out with my scallop punch and added a jewel brad.  I tied the end of the ribbon with a button and ta da!  A book mark!  Hope you enjoy and don't forget to head over to AiFactory for some great digi images.  Happy Holidays!

Scrapbooking & Crafting Friends

Since I'm on the design team for Scrapbooking & Crafting Friends, I thought I better get my rear in gear and post my card for the project!  The theme is angels (fitting for Christmas).  My Grafico is our sponsor.  I used the angel kitty digi stamp that just came out.  I also post my sketches on my other blog, visit me there for some inspiration if you're stuck.  Enjoy!

December 2009 Artist Of The Month

I'm a big fan of folded books.  I even shared my first folded book project right here.  You can see the post here.
But I wanted to showcase Heather this month.  I am a big fan of Flickr, so many great artists post their photos of their artwork there.  That's where I met Heather and let me tell you, her folder books are gorgeous!
  I started doing folded books but nothing compared to her works of art.  They are amazing.  She also has an Etsy shop where you can purchase them!  Here a few of her works from her shop and you really should go visit the rest.
