Confirmation Card

One of my dear friends asked me to make a Confirmation card for her nephew and I was happy with the results. Masculine cards are usually harder for me as I tend to devote my creativity to my really girly princess LOL but this one was fun to make. I had this Faith paper from Paper Studio and just love the colors (they also lend themselves to masculine cards very well). The bible cuts came from the book in Graphically Speaking and the cross and ribbon label are trusty Spellbinders.

Inside is a basic pocket for a wonderful gift card for the happy occasion. I also had the wonderful brads (yes, it's a brad) from Making Memories of various crosses and this one with the dove on it suited a Confirmation card so perfectly. Felt it would make a great bookmark and look like an authentic one to boot.

LaLa Land Stamps

Meet Marci from LaLa Land Stamps. She comes in the best poses and has a wonderful friend Luke. These are just the most darling stamps! This was one of the Make and Takes at their booth at CHA and I just love this girl. I had a lot of fun coloring this image with the Copics they had for this Make and Take. Large nice areas to color and the loveliest little mouth that is just precious too.

Go check out their website and blog to see all of their creative and gorgeous stamps!

I know is carrying them.

More photos from CHA

Aren't these just stunning!! I don't think any photo can do these dresses justice but they are truly designer runway worthy!

These did incentivize me to take my LO's up a notch... we'll see what I can come up with.

Well, I'm a bit behind but I will try to put up some more photos from Los Angeles. LOTS and lots of walking but it's always fun. The big theme at a lot of booths were the phenomenal paper dresses and gorgeous flowers. The talent of some of these designers just amazes me.

There were gorgeous flowers from Prima coming out that will embellish just about anything and just adds that WOW factor!!

Winter CHA photos!

CHA has been a blast and there has been so much to see and take in. Lots and lots of beautiful new embellies and paperlines and ideas for amazing home decor using just your basic scrapppin' stuff! The ribbons were so elegant, fun, filmy and gorgeous! Lots of beautiful choices for all of your favorite LSS's and online shops. I of course, wanted them all! Viva Decor dazzled as always and the big news from ProvoCraft is the next generation Cricut Expression 2 (E2). It is more streamlined than the original E and with the larger, colored LED screen, it eliminates the need for a keypad and overlay! And it should be WiFi capable a couple of months after it's official release April 26th on HSN. That's right, WiFi... no more cords or dragging your E to your computer and vice versa. Perhaps even more exciting is the Cricut Chat Room online. It's a Gypsy, Design Studio and more rolled into one but even better! It's online so it's available anywhere anytime that you log on and the applications that you can do with it are amazing. Being able to type your titles, phrases, etc is such a simple thing but something many of us have been begging for. And welding... it's never been easier. There are tons of youtube videos showing it in action and I encourage you to check them out. I didn't film any since there seemed to be an overload of videos out there but they are all good. The absolute best part... it will be FREE OF CHARGE! Yes, FREE. And for me, mac compatible, finally!! You'll be able to save all of your projects on there, share them via email, view every image on every cart PC makes from every feature key all on your own computer or laptop screen. For those who purchase an E2, when that goes wireless, you'll be able to cut without any cables hooked up.
