C4C67 - Sketch

Whew!!! That was a long break between posts!!! I have been absolutely SWAMPED with seems every time I think I'm going to have a moment of spare time...the phone rings.... and I'm off and runnin' again!!! LOL!!
I was, however, able to find time to play with this FAB sketch from the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog this week!!

I had to flip the sketch to accommodate the long sentiment here from CTMH! This card is for a very good friend that is moving to another town and we are having a little party for her this weekend! We made a whole little gift basket of treasures for her...this is the card!

This is the photo frame, altered journal that all the guests will write in, and gift card holder!

This is the basket it's all going in...the boxes are all different chocolates that we wrapped with the gorgeous Magnifique CTMH paper!

A close-up of the frame!

Here is the inside of the Gift Card Holder! You can find a tutorial on my blog HERE!

Well that's it...lots of love went into this little project and I'm sure she'll love it!!!
Thanks for stoppin' in for a little Stamps 'n' Coffee!!

November Totally Stampalicious Blog Hop!

Welcome to the 9th STOP of the November Release Blog Hop!!
If you didn't arrive here from Patricia's Blog, then head back to the beginning at the Totally Stampalicious Blog 'cuz' trust me, you don't miss a thing!!

We have FOUR New Sets from the Bugaboo Line by the incredibly talented Jodie Mackerell, owner/artist of Bugaboo Digi Stamps!
All 4 Fabulous new stamps sets are available NOW at
Totally Stampalicious!!

As always, we've got some great PRIZES to give away!
Be sure to leave comments on all the Design Team's posts and maybe YOU could be a winner of one of these
1st Prize - All 4 New Stamp Sets
2nd Prize - $15 Gift Certificate
3rd, 4th and 5th Prizes - $5 Gift Certificate

So here's my Peek at Misery Stella! I have to admit that I was a little nervous about putting this sentiment on the set, but Becky and her Mom thought it was hilarious it seems to have been received in the proper humorous light!!
It was inspired by my girlfriends, as one night we were sitting around and one of us was having a problem with a boyfriend. In true BFF style, we (jokingly of course, he's a great guy) offered to 'whack' him in a dark alley!

I thought this would be perfect on a Tissue Box Cover which you can find the Tutorial for on SCS HERE!
Well now it's time to head on over to Vicki's Blog to see what SUPER COOL creation she has come up with!!

C4C60 - Spooooky Halloweeeeen.....

Welcome to another Crazy 4 Challenges Saturday!!
This week, our hostess with the mostest, Silke Ledlow, has us celebrating HALLOWEEN!!! Our challenge is to make any card or project with a Halloween theme!!

I pulled out one of my ALL TIME fave Halloween sets from SU!
I'm not really sure, but I think this might be the first time I've inked up this particular stamp and I LOVE it!

I have to say I'm pretty happy with how this card turned out...I hope you like it too!

I stamped and heat embossed both the tree and the jack-o-lantern on Daffodil paper and then sponged all the edges with Pumpkin Pie ink.

Naughty Boy List

So I just found the ABC Christmas Challenge Blog and thought what a great idea...I just wish I had found it sooner...I'd be done all my Christmas cards already...or more of them anyway!!
Anyhoo...they have a Sketch Challenge going on this well as needing THREE 'Vs' on your card!!
OK....well I got the sketch down no problem! As for the 3 'Vs'...well let's see..
1)It is Virescent (greenish in color)
2)Vertical sketch
and 3) VERY funny?!

Hopefully it qualifies...LOL!!

I really do find this sentiment very funny...I hope you do too!! I know I have a couple of girlfriends that would get a kick out of this card for sure!!

Thanks so much for stoppin' by!!

3 Ribbon Tag - Snow Happens!

Well I woke up to fluffy white flakes falling from the sky this morning, and although it's a little early in the year for SNOW, I decided to make the best of it by spending some time in my craft room!!!
I made this for the Totally Stampalicious Monday Challenge - Use 3 Ribbons and also today's Technique Lover's Challenge over on Splitcoast! - to make a tag!

I decided to use one of our new Angel Bears from the Totally Stampalicious Bugaboo Line and the sentiment is from our Snowman Set!

C4C55 Sketch and a New Sponsor

Happy Saturday!!!
Today is particularly special for me because exactly 8 years ago my life was forever changed by the arrival of my beautiful baby girl!! We are celebrating her special day with a shopping trip to West Edmonton Mall with a few of her friends!! I love celebrating my kids' birthdays with a bang as those days are the most important dates of my I'm sure every parent knows!!!
Anyway....on with today's Crazy 4 Challenges challenge!! We've got a sketch for you today!!! Check it out:

And guess what else? We are very excited to have a new sponsor this week and you know what that means....a PRIZE!!! WOOHOO!!! Check it out:

Our sponsor for this week is Meljen's Designs. Meljen's Designs is a digital stamp company owned and illustrated by Melissa Jenkins. She illustrates whimsical digital images inspired by her kids and family. Meljen's Designs has new releases along with a new challenge every Thursday, freebies every Monday and a Guest Designer each month at the Meljen's Designs Blog.

So here is my take on the sketch using this sweet little Bear!! Isn't he adorable...even though he is, quite clearly, not feeling well!!! Hopefully these bright colors will cheer him up a little!

TO be quite honest, I think this card is a little TOO busy, but it is what it is!! LOL! I have had an insanely busy week and just didn't get time to make another! I have several of MelJen's Designs on file that are just waiting to be brought to life, but alas, it will have to wait for another day!!

C4C53 All About Books!

Well hello Crazy Fans!!! It's Saturday and that means another challenge over at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog and it's anew month so that means a new Hostess!!! As it happens, the hostess this month is yours truly....ME!!!
The beginning of September is always all about Back To School, so I thought it would be fun to have a challenge All About Books!! ANYTHING Book related works!!

I decided to make a bookmark for both of my kiddoes to take to school!!! IT also gave me the opportunity to ink up the fun Back To School set from SU!s last mini!

I laminated these after they were all done...but wouldn't you know it...if you laminate those embossed labels the heat makes them completely DISAPPEAR!!!!! LOL!!! It makes sense now that I think about it but it didn't even occur to me while I was making them!!! Needless to say, I re-made the labels and places them ON TOP of the laminated bookmarks!!
Live learn!! LOL!

Thanks so much for stoppin' in and I hope you'll play along with the rest of us Crazies!!

Anything But A Card!

It's another happy Monday and this week we have another great challenge going on over at the Totally Stampalicious Blog!!

We are making ANYTHING BUT A CARD! This has always been one of my personal faves as I LOVE to make boxes and bags and other such 3-D projects!!

For this particular challenge I decided to create this little gift box to 'wrap' a wallet that I bought for a very good friend of mine!! Of course I used Scarlette from our Totally Stampalicious Bugaboo Line because she is just the perfect 'girlfriend' image!! I also LOVE the sentiments that come with this particular stamp set!

To make this gift box, I simpley measured the wallet and added 1" to each side! I then scored in 1" on each side and made the box!

I then took a piece of DP (CTMH's Cherry-Oh) and wrapped around the box. A little ribbon and a fun tag and VOILA!!! My friend enjoyed the 'wrapping' as much as she did the gift!!

Thanks so much for stoppin by today!!
Be sure to head on over to the Totally Stampalicious Blog to see the other fun projects from the team...and maybe even play along with us!!
