Basic Chipboard Clipboard

These are just the funnest and easiest thing to make! I have lots of big pieces of chipboard laying around and I just love putting these together. This one was done using Basic Grey paper and May arts and SU ribbon. The flower gems at the bottom were picked up from Targets $1 spot.. I inked the edges with some pretty in pink ink and used a clip at the top..

Rock Star!

I've LOVED LOVED LOVED this Rock Star paper from DCWV.. So I picked some up and YES, I did cut into my stack. But ONLY to make a special gift for someone who ROCKS! I thought this would make a fun gift for a teenager to add pictures of herself and her friends!!
Also did you notice the background??? Okay so I just HAD to find a way to get a nice picture.. So Santa brought me my gift early this year and yes I already confessed to my husband that I opened it early.. So this is called a "soft box" .. Now I just opened it and pulled it out of its packaging so it still has a few wrinkles. Its so exciting, it came with a camera stand, 2 special lights and the box itself with different color backgrounds..

Special Gift!

This little set was a special gift for a girl I teach in my Sunday school class. Her grandfather passed away last week and I wanted to give her a little something to let her know I care. I was super excited about the cute little gift box and matching card. I filled it up with little nuggets wrapped with the same coordinating paper and some packs of gum.

Super Simple!

Can you believe how much I have been stamping? I made this card this morning, and two more that I will save to show you later. I've had this set for a little while now and this is the first time I've gotten the urge to use it. I just love the tree image and the cute saying. This was a super simple card that I think packs a bit of a punch! Enjoy Stamps: Sidekick sayings, Linen Bkgd.
Paper, Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate, WW,

Ribbon, White Glaze pen

Elzybellzy Fun!

I just got my first order of Elzybells Stamps. Oh, my goodness I had so much fun stamping last night! So here are a few cards with my new images, they are just to darling!! These Images were just screaming to be made into a winter shaker. I used kosher salt for snow and added some cute ribbon I got at the Target $1 spot. I added some green and red Stickles to the tree for a little shine and used my flannel and polka dot backgrounds. The Polka dot bkgd. is quickly becoming my favorite.

Baby Shower Quickie!

My Dear Sis, needed a baby shower gift today so I plunked these cuties out in about 30 mins. Needless to say I put more effort into making these than I did getting ready for church.. Hehehehe, I heard they were a hit and the mom-to-be was so thrilled and just loved them..
Paper: DCWV, SU Bold Brights and various Ribbons.
I will get better at posting the ingredients I promise!! :)

New Ribbon Holder...

***UPDATE*** If you would like the instructions please visit InkyInspirations! She has the file needed for the pattern.. :)

Okay so I saw the COOLEST Ink pad holder that Rebel Inker made for $6 using foam core and a super savvy pattern she made herself!! I just HAD to make one but realized soon after finishing that I really love my already established Ink pad holder. But I did have a problem with my Ribbon, the more I get the more its just ALL over the place so I modified her design to accommodate my ribbon, after finishing it and sitting back and admiring it, I decided I needed something to hold my re-inkers, stickles and ink cartridges!! Wow, I'm so super thrilled I just free'd up tons of space on my table! I picked up some Foam Core at Wal-mart for $1 a sheet, I used 2 pieces for these projects... THANKS REBEL INKER!!

Thanks for stopping in

Okay so it doesn't really hurt, but it looks like it does! I had kids and adults asking me all night long if this was real! Yeah, who stitches something like that up with nails??? Anywho I had a bunch of fun having people stare at it and little kids shy away because of the gruesomeness of it all. Ingredients: Vaseline and cornstarch, mix till putty forms, and use makeup for effects!

Here are a few pictures of some super simple goodies I made for my Kids teachers.. I hope you all have a safe and fun Halloween!!

Problem Solved!

Okay so you know that little fake skin problem I was having.. Well I figured it out and boy did I get my DH good!! I mixed up some Vaseline and cornstarch made it into this super fun to play with paste and applied a huge glob of it to my hand. I then proceeded to cover it with Halloween makeup and made it look really bruised and gross! I was searching and searching for my fake blood when I just decided to go for the good old standard- Ketchup. I slit open my "wound" and applied some ketchup.. I then went downstairs to where my DH was playing nicely on his xbox 360 and went into the back storage room where I pretended to be looking for something when all of a sudden I hit the wall really hard and started calling for him very frantically.. He came running and boy was the look on his face priceless. He really thought I'd been wounded until I started laughing.. A little cruel, I admit- but it was really good. I failed however, to get a picture of it cuz it was scaring my little one so I showed her how fun it was to take it all off..

I need Skin!

Fake Skin that is...
Okay so the whole story- In 6Th grade my teacher made this super cool putty like "fake skin" I'm pretty sure it was made with Vaseline and possible flour or cornstarch. She tinted it with makeup to make it look like flesh. Well I'm in search of that recipe, I've found a few online and tried them but I guess on Monday I will have to run out and buy some Vaseline and try some more. I'm so obsessed with finding this recipe and making it that I even looked through my old year books for proper spelling of her name and tried looking her phone number up.. Yes ladies, I admit it, I was going to call and seriously ask her for the recipe..
Okay so it didn't work, I couldn't find her number.. Thank goodness I don't want to be perceived as crazy. So if anyone has any suggestions or recipes you want to share drop me a line...

I am so lucky, at the crop in Kansas I was bribed to make an announcement to all the ladies with this, I also got a Paper Crafts Mag too! (not shown), SU Punch, Stamps paper, and ribbon. Some Pioneer adhesives, the lady at their booth was so nice when I went over to ask if I could have some empty boxes as they were packing up she handed me all the left over adhesives that she had!

Just a quick post and then I'm off....

I tried posting these cards last night, but something wasn't working. So I'm posting quickly this morning before I head to Kansas!! These are the start of my Christmas cards, I think they turned out super cute and I can't wait to get them sent out when the time comes..

I used some DP from last years catalog and new old olive 5/8 grosgrain ribbon, I also used some pretty may arts ribbon. Each card is a little different to use up what supplies I have on hand. Have a great day, I hope to post some CK-news on Friday!

Okay so I know that I haven't been posting regularly lately, so I've come to the conclusion that I'm at least going to post once a week at least. I've got to set a goal somewhere!
This "friend" word book was cut using a Pazzle and pale plum cs. I stamped it using baroque motifs and close to cocoa ink. I used chocolate chip cs to back and sponged the edges to give some more definition to the letters. I also adhered some flower gems from the Target $1 spot and tied it with retired SU ribbon.
I tried taking the picture outside today using Beate's tips but I think my choice of placement was off, the background is really white though it looks blue..

Call me Capt'n!!!

In honor of my new pirate name, I decided I had to make one of these adorable file folder tag books with a pirate theme. I super distressed my paper, and inked and inked and inked and I think I achieved the look I wanted. I would still like to add alittle something more to some of the tags but Im so thrilled with the over all look of it! I used crystal effects on the treasure box and sail of the ship and jumbo eyelets on the ends.. Arrrrr!
