I have 2 of 3 card kits – Simon says stamp, my hero from hero arts and the one I haven’t gotten yet is Love from Lizi. 

I am a novice card maker. I see tons of 10 cards 1 kit videos on YouTube. Would you like to see a novice version?

Please let me know with a comment: yes or no?

Cameo 3 – card

So I made a card for my boss today. He calls me Wonder Woman so I made a super man logo but with a P for purchasing. I used my cameo to take a image from google and make it into a cut file. Don’t ask me how as I’m surprised I managed it myself. 

I also used a chibitronics light to make the emblem light up 

Here’s the photos

Wire bound 11.5×11.5 Baby album┬á

A few years ago I made my first wife bound book. It was a gift for the daughter in law of the head pastor of our rather large church, she had been in a small ladies group I was in when they announced their pregnancy. I worked tirelessly on it and I was pretty novice at the time. I made 52 pages (26 front and back) with two baby onsies on each page with stamped journaling on one and the other for a photo. 


I went a little easier with this version. I used chipboard that is fairly thin so I tripled it for the covers and just one for each of the internal pages. I got a chip decor letter and used my cricut cartridge that is from Hobby Lobby for those letters and designs and cut out a pattern to cover the letter. Glued that on top of a pattern papered cover, and then Proceeded to cover all the internal pages. I did use Authentiques Cuddle for boys paper line. It came out very cute. I put 2 cutaparts on the pages as well (not in the photos! Did them later)  

The mommy LOVED the book and looks forward to filling it with photos. Thought I would share it with you all. 
Let me know what you think. Not too shabby for a few hours of work.

Monthly kits

Do you subscribe to monthly kits? I know a lot of the people I “run with” in crafting are mini albums, multi media, and 3D object crafters. One of my personal goals for the last few years was to get better at making cards for close family and friends and occasions that would warrant a card. During last years flood fiasco I was getting the Simon says stamp kits each month. Even while i didn’t have a craft area to work in. They just collected until I was able to get my room situated. 
Over the last 4ish months I have gotten really hooked on the 10 cards 1 kit videos on YouTube. And I have come to realize that I love multiple companies kits ­čś▒ and not every month do I love the SSS kit I’m subscribed to. 
I follow Crazy Paper Chick on YT, FB, etc and I agree with what she said recently about 2017. I plan to unsubscribe from the SSS kit, and I instead subscribed to the Love from Lizi kit (she’s in the UK and her kits sell out way too quick!). I will watch the SSS kit releases and the My Hero kit release from Hero Arts. 
What is your favorite kit provider? Do you organize your kits? Keep them in their boxes? Divy them up? 
Also check out the kits this month from Simon Says stamp… it’s doodle bug and coffee/tea/cocoa themed and SUPER cute!! 
Would you like to see me do kit videos? 10 cards 1 kit like the youtubers? Or something different? 

It’s Friday

It’s Friday and the moon is out time get my cutter out do the twist then shout (Mary chapman carpenter song from early 90s made to fit a crafter). Well it’s almost the weekend!!!! What are your crafty plans? Me I have a crop tomorrow where I’ll be working on a baby shower gift for Sunday! Making it as simple as can be.

Do you subscribe to kits? What kits do you love? Me I am subscribed to THREE card kits: Simon says stamp, stampin up and love from lizi. I am thinking to stop the SSS and Stampin up though. I can buy the SSS without a subscription. But I just signed up for love from lizi and I’m super super excited! Her kits are amazing!!! She’s from the U.K. And her supplies aren’t the same as the US. She does get nuvo supplies though. If you’ve never seen her kits check them out www.lovefromlizi.com and she’s on YouTube too!!

24 Hour HSN Craft Day

Whos watching HSN? Do you have items you HAVE to get from HSN? Do you watch all 24 hours?

Honesty here….. I’m NOT an Anna Griffin fan…. I think her stuff is pretty but I would NOT EVER pay the prices they charge for her designs. I dont care for the gold and tan.

I do have to say I want the WRMK tab punch board though! That would be great instead of the stand alone one you have to use the clear stickers for. OR to have to use the other punch boards to get a similar tab look.

what do you think?
