Just Wordz ~ Hip Hooray!





Hey everyone :) I hope you all are having a great day! Snow has finally come to the MidWest. And it's nasty outside. Cold sleeting snow... nice day to stay in and craft! Has your weather been strange this winter? Usually by now we would have had several days below 0. And we have yet to reach 20. Not the norm for sure... and I am not complaining! :)

The sweet card I have to share today was made using JustWordz stamps. You know... the sentiment stamps I have been talking about every Friday for months? Well guess what? Now is your time to snag some for yourself! JustWordz is having a HUGE sale. Buy one stamp set and get your second set free!! Sale ends at the end of the month so hurry and get yours today!

This card can be used for so many occasions and I love that about it. I originally started it out as a birthday card. But now I think it could be used for any celebration really. I also used a different backdrop to showcase it. Not so sure about this one. What do you think about the staging? Do you like the tea cup better? Thanks for popping in today guys. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!

Baby Girl Tin









This sweet baby girl tin is what I have been working on this week. It's for a customer of mine. She loves to give these for baby showers. I must say it does make quite an impact. Everyone raves over these. It takes some time to make. But oh so worth the end result!

I sell my baby tins for $50.00. If you are interested in one please shoot me an email. My email link is on the left side bar of my blog.

Thanks for looking!
Wishes for a great day!!

Graphic 45 Design Team 2012 Audition

Hey Guys!!
~ Happy Valentine's Day ~

I hope this day finds you celebrating all things love. I have an exciting post to share with you all this morning. I am trying out for the Graphic 45 Design Team for 2012! And guess what? You all get to be a part of it by seeing my application here in this post!! Let me just mention this post is going to be loooong, but chalked full of new projects and photos.

 I am totally jazzed about trying out for G~45. As many of you know I adore their product. The design elements in their collections speak right to my soul and I hope they see that in my projects below. Thank you Graphic 45 for this once in a lifetime opportunity!

To try out I must submit at least 6 projects. I am submitting 7. Three of which I made just for this Design Team Call. So they are new to my viewers as well. Alrighty... a little nervous here... but let's get started!

PROJECT #1
"Let's Do Lunch"




This feminine card was made using Graphic 45's Le' Romantique Collection. Perfect to send to a friend for those wonderful "Girl Days". I crinkled the main image and then inked over it just a bit to give it a more "aged" look and feel.



PROJECT #2
"Applause"



This card is an all time favorite of mine. This is when I knew Graphic 45 was for me. I was able to design this card in one afternoon using Graphic 45's Curtain Call Collection. It came together so effortlessly for me because G~45's collections are just "that" amazing!



PROJECT #3
"Love Letters"



 










This mini album is new and was created for this Design Team Call. I made this album for myself. It has 4 love letters that my hubby gave to me one year for Christmas. He tied them up and placed them inside the Christmas tree for me to find. I have always wanted a special place to store them... and now I have.  :) This delicate mini was created using Graphic 45's Le' Romantique Collection.



PROJECT #4
"Altered Halloween Jar"
 
















This super cool altered jar is a new project and was created just for this Design Team Call. I wanted to showcase my style using several of Graphic 45's Collection's. Also I wanted to showcase that even though it's not Halloween you can still be inspired to create just from the collection itself! Amazing stuff!! I LOVE this line!!
 


PROJECT #5
"Jingle Bell Tag"



This darling tag was created using Graphic 45's Christmas Emporium Collection. Another Favorite of mine! The attention to detail in this line is over the top amazing. And so much fun to work with.




PROJECT # 6
"Steampunk Tin"











This awesome altered tin was created using Graphic 45's Steampunk Debutante Collection. Really proud of this one!! This is a new project created just for this Design Team Call. I love making altered tins and can not believe I have never made one using this collection before. It's perfect!! I had so much fun creating this piece and wanted to create a feel of mystery.




PROJECT #7
"Thank You"



This card was made using Graphic 45's Steampunk Debutante Collection. Fitting this should be my last project. Thank you to Graphic 45 for your consideration of my work and for creating such original collections to inspire! Thank you to all of you for getting to this point and for staying with me this long! LOL

Please wish me luck!! I have all fingers & toes crossed!!

Just Wordz ~ Key 2 My Heart





This fun bright card was made for Valentines day. Key 2 My Heart. Can you pick out the sentiment? I had so much fun adding each little detail to this cheerful card. The pom poms are my favorite. JustWordz sentiments allow you to create all kinds of unique sayings. I used JustWordz for the "My" part of this sentiment. They are so much fun to play around with.

The papers are from Cosmo Cricket. It's a small 6x6 paper pad and the first time I have used them. Love it when paired with a black accent.

So what are your plans for Valentine's day this year? I think my family and I are going to celebrate this Sunday. So much goes on around here Tuesday evenings and I want to slow down and really enjoy the holiday. That's not going to happen on a Tuesday at my house! LOL Whatever your plans I hope it's a beautiful holiday for you.

Thanks for stopping by.
Wishing you a wonderful day!

JustWordz Peace, Love & Joy!






Hey Guys!
TGIF!!

Happy Friday everyone. I know it's been a week since my last post. I have been busy creating projects for my customers. Which hasn't left much crafting time for anything else. But I did want to share with you this card made with using JustWordz sentiment stamps. They are the perfect addition to any project because you can mix and match the words to come up with your very own sentiment.

This card uses allot of Webster's Pages product. Their Winter Fairyland collection is used here. So super fun and girlie. Although I'm not sure I really like this card. What do you think?

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend.
Thanks for popping in.
Wishes for a great day!
