Black, White and Silver Card Swap

Here is my submission for the Black, White and Silver card swap on SCS. Sorry for the two photos. Glitter is so hard to photograph!

What do you think? Glitter overload? Nah! No such thing. ;)

Sense of Humor Swap and Control Freaks Question

Hi everyone! Here is my submission for a Sense of Humor Card Swap on SCS. I used the new SU set That's Funny. This stamp was the reason why I bought the set. I cracked up when I saw it and I chuckled while I made the card. Reason enough to own it right? I hope my fellow swappers enjoy it!

I'm sure you can tell by my favorite blogs that I stalk that I hop around quite a bit everyday. Well, on my fav blogs I see frequent mentions of a group called Control Freaks Swappers. It seems from what I can gather of this secret society that you have to be asked to join. So I'm wondering if there is a place you can submit some samples so you might get asked? I've googled them, yahooed them, searched the SCS forums and I can't find any link to a site for this group. Does anyone out there know what I need to do, if there is anything I can do, to get more information about this group? TIA for information ladies!

Thanks So Much Criss Cross Card

Here is my sample for my first shoebox swap I'm going to on Friday. I hope everyone likes my card. My friend Jill liked it so that's something right? :) I'll post more soon. Not in the best of moods right now and it's hard to think of anything interesting to say.

Elegant Valentine's Card

Hi everyone! Don't you just love this striking card? It was an almost complete case from here. At first I wasn't so sure about the new Rockabilly DSP but this card sold me and now that I've played with it, I love it! I also got to use Heat & Stick powder for the first time. I used it on the hearts and instead of embossing them I poured the black Cosmo glitter on them. Very sparkly! My other new toys and goodies were the Eyelet Border punch, Hodge Podge hardware for the ribbon slide and the new yummy ribbon from the Valet Ribbon Originals pack. It's basically a velvet grosgrain ribbon. My friend Jill let me borrow her Always set as I hadn't decided if I needed it yet. Now I'm going to have to get it. Thanks for looking!

Organizing Groove

Hey everyone! Just thought I would show a bit of the organizing I've been doing. I bought a new label maker as my old one finally died and I went a little crazy labeling everthing. Any one remember the Friends episode where Monica said, "Eight hours spent with my label maker and file folders is not wasted time!" LOL I had to find a way to store my punches in my very limited craft area. These cafe curtain rods are behind the door to my room. The other picture is obviously my SU! stamp collection. I've only got 36 sets. Yet somehow I think I still need some more. Isn't that always the case?

PCP Swappin' Scraps~Recipe Swap #1

This is what I came up with for Sara's recipe swap on Papercraft Planet. After we are done with the 4 swaps we will have a beautiful cookbook. This first swap was a baked/dessert swap. It didn't have to be monochromatic. That's just what I ended up doing. To make up for the color scheme I tried to put a lot of detail on it. I paper pierced both edges of the pattern paper. The top line follows the straight edges and the bottom line follows the scallops. For the scallops I created the glossy finish with 3 coats of UTEE. The pocket was created using the Folder Inking technique and my cuttlebug. All the stamping is embossed and to finish I inked every edge of this paper. Thanks for looking!

More CFS Spring Cards

Hi everyone! Here are the last pictures of my most recent Cards For Soldiers commitment. I ended up making 105 cards. I am truly loving my Sheet Load of Cards ezine. It has made my life so much easier. I have realized that I am not the kind of person who loves designing cards and layouts and sketches. I love the creating not the dreaming. Now I'm off to nurse the cramp in my hand because my friend Jill told me I needed to stickle all the cute cupcakes in the first picture. But they are cute so what's a little pain for our troops? Have a great day!

Rubon Fun

As you can tell I've been having fun putting rubons on my possessions. My planner was quite plain and I could never tell which was the front or back. Rubons to the rescue! Then I purchased 3 stainless steel water bottles for me and my parents and of course had to spruce mine up a bit. Who doesn't want flowers and butterflies on their water bottles? Don't you just love Stampin' Up! rubons? Now I'm off to my nephew's 3rd birthday party and I'm bringing the Dirt and Worm cake. Wheee! :D
