May 2011 Artist Of The Month

I know, it's a day early but I couldn't wait to share my May artist with you!
Her work is amazing to me.  Her dolls are so unusual and I am just fascinated by them.  

So the artist of the month for May 2011 is:

She sells her wonderful dolls on Etsy and Etsy did an article about her too.  So read all about her HERE.

Along with her dolls she sells photo prints of her dolls so that you can hang them all over your house.  Just jaw dropping to me.  So I had to share her work with you.  Please stop by her blog and her Etsy store and see all of her fabulous works of art.

Easy Paper Basket

This is a repeat tutorial I did last year. 
But it's Easter time and time to make baskets!

And yay!  My video is featured on Paper Craft Planet's newsletter!

AiFactory Challenge ~ Flowers In Bloom ~

This weeks challenge at AiFactory was using some wonderful baby bug clipart and adding flowers to our cards.  Using clipart on cards and projects is so easy, just print and cut.  Fabulous!  I printed out the images then hand cut the baby bug and punched out the little bugs using my Stampin' Up! Boho Blossoms Punch.  I used quilling paper to attach the little bugs to the flower.  

Head on over to the AiFactory challenge blog and enter your card or project for a chance to win this clipart!

Can't wait to see your creations.  You can post them on the AiFactory Challenge Blog.  You will have until 11:59 EST on Wednesday April 27th to upload your projects.  You don't have to use an AiFactory image, you can use whatever image you want, but be sure to visit the AiFactory Store for great freebies too.  Also join our AiFactory Community and we also have a Community on Paper Craft Planet.  See you there!

Sizzix Dies Blog Candy Giveaway!

Enter in the giveaway then scroll down for the rest!

Welcome to my blog candy giveaway!  It's been awhile since I said thank you to all of you that visit me, so THANK YOU!  I wanted to share with you some extra Sizzix Dies that I have in my collection.  If you are the lucky winner you will receive all 3 dies.  They can be used in your Big Shot, Big Kick and Cuttlebug.  They are all brand new and have never been opened.
This giveaway is open to everyone in the world, so yes, I will ship internationally if you win.

Why give these away you ask?  Well........ sad story, not really, it's kinda funny actually.  I shop on the Sizzix site often and recently they had a big sale.  I was so excited that I bought about 10 dies.  During that time I was also in the middle of a move and my scrap room was all packed up.  I moved into my new place and unpacked all my fun stuff and discovered I had ordered things I already have!  These are 3 of those things I have too many of.  I could have just sent them back but I wanted to give them away to you!

There are 5 ways to get your name in the hat!

Do one or do them all!
Here's the how and what you need to do to enter the giveaway:

 1.  Post this giveaway on your sidebar and leave me a comment that you did that and you get an entry.  You can't right click on my website for copyright reasons so you can just post the link to this post on your sidebar saying "super awesome giveaway" or "giddy greetings giveaway" or "big sizzix die giveaway" or get the idea :)

2.  If you become a follower of my blog and you leave a comment about that, you get another entry.

3.  If you become a fan of me on Facebook HERE and leave me a comment that you did that, you get another entry.

4.  If you stop by my other blog GGCAA and become a follower there and leave a comment here that you did that, you get another entry.

5.  If you become a fan of my other blog on Facebook HERE and leave me a comment here that you did that, you get another entry. 

So that's 5 things and 5 comments.  WOW that's a lot of here and there.  But you can do just one of them or all of them, it's up to you.  But I will be here and there to see who can keep up with it all :) 

Here's a closer look at what you will get if you win. 

Sizzix Dress Ups Body Original Die

Sizzix Dress Ups Cheerleader Uniform Original Die

Sizzix Dress Ups Football & Gear Original Die

The drawing will take place on April 1st using the random number generator at Random.Org I will email and post the winner also on April 1st.
