(Re)Inventing Myself...

Hello all, 


Okay so I just realized that I haven't posted anything since last year! Shame on me!!!
I know each year I promise that I am going to spend more time doing it and I never follow thru with it, but this time its different I have decided to start and really invest time in it.  
I love crafting as it gives me a chance to relax and just focus on my projects and believe me it's a nice break after a long day at work.  
So I have decided to make some changes in and effort to reinvent myself and my blog!


First of, I decided to change the name of my blog! YAY!!! I do not consider myself a stamping newbie anymore! I am not a professional by any means but I have been doing this since 2008 and I feel more secure in my crafting!
Second, I discovered Close to My Heart Products and I have to say that I am in love with them! 
They are such a nice company and their papers, stamps, inks and colors are all awesome!


I hope to start sharing little by little my little works of art as well as any Close to my heart products and offers :)

Sunday Stamping...

Hello all,
I have been a little under the weather lately, but today I actually made it a point to do some stamping... I saw this one Magic Monkey Card on youtube and i just had to try it.




I also just made these little milk cartons aren't they cute?




I feel a lot better now, so hopefully I can continue stamping and I might have more projects to show you later on today.

Hope you all had a great Sunday!

Nursery Tales

Hi all,


Happy Sunday! I hope you've enjoyed your Sunday so far... I just have a quick post to share one quick card I made for a friend that just had a baby boy.  
I used Bashful Blue for the base, then Red Rose for the middle mat and chocolate brown.  I added an image from Nursery Tales... I added a little Bashful blue ribbon and I used the Congrats stamp set in white craft ink.  


Hope you like it!

Love is in the Air


Hello all,
How are you doing? I am sooo happy to have finished two projects tonight!
For this card I use a new stamp set by Stampin' Up! Sweet Centers... I think it is so cute and very easy to use! I also added the sweet treat cups which just look so darn cute!




Colors used: Ink Melon Mambo as well as card stock; Chocolate chip, Whisper White and Pretty in pink card stock.
The sentiment if from the Chat Room rub-ons.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Thanks again and come back soon! :)
XOXO


P.S: Happy Birthday Mom!!
I Love you!!! Have a great day!
