Giving thanks

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

Since is a day to meditate on all the good things and give thanks for what we have I will take a few minutes to say thanks. Thanks to my God and Savior JesusChrist for His amazing grace, His favor and opportunities. I  rely every day of my life on His love and strength. Nothing to boast except the cross of Jesus for sure…so thanks my kind King.

Thanks also to my wonderful family for your support. For loving me in spite of my messes, my weaknesses and at times even my forgetfulness.  My brain goes a hundred miles an hour and I can be very slow in things that actually merit my attention. Thanks for your patience.

To my stamping friends and supporters, I am humbled and grateful for your loyalty, your kindness and for staying in touch even when I am far away from all of you at the time. I cherish your friendships more than you can imagine. Thanks for believing in me and my dreams!

Have you all a beautiful Thanksgiving day….and remember: 
You are very loved. Jesus always loves you!

I got two sweet Thanksgiving cards on the mail today (Im writing on Wednesday), what a super warming awesome feeling when someone sends you a card. Thanks CD, thanks Elaine. I treasure you!

I sent this to all my stamping friends early this month.
Hope they like it and got a bit inspired.  

Materials: Sunflower Stamp, Blessings from Heaven
Colors: DSP packs (Island Indigo, Crumb Curry, Rose Red and Perfect Plum)



Creative Blessings! Keep making beauty and displaying His splendor one way or another.

My Pumpkin Challenge: Notes to Santa

I HAD to use the "notes" stamp set from October's My paper Pumpkin kit to make some cute cards for Santa. I love how they look and I'm sure my little girls who now can actually write on their own will make good use of them this Christmas. I grew up writing letters to Santa…but I'm raising my kids writing letters to Jesus. It s my desire to focus as much as possible on the birth of Jesus Christ and what a joy that is to our lives.

So I made one saying "Notes to Santa" and the other 3 (for my kiddos" saying "Notes to Jesus". What do you think?
Leave me a comment belowwwww! Love interacting with people, not just with my computer. :)

Size: DSP 5" x 7"
Whisper White CS 4 1/2" x 6 1/2"
DSP Packs in bright, bring Old Olive and Real Red DSP
Whisper White Baker's twine

Stamp sets: My Paper Pumpkin kit Memo Medley "notes"
My Paper Pumpkin kit "Hello to you" with a marker for "to"
Stampin'Up! Notable Alphabet Stamp set


I can't wait to give these to my girls and see what they want for Christmas. Surely I will treasure these in a scrapbook page. I'm glad I made these inspired by My Paper Pumpkin kits.
Check it out HERE and take a look at what others are making at My Pumpkin Challenge today!
Awesome projects being linked also on November 1st post. 


Creative Blessings!
Come back tomorrow for more inspiration, this time for my friend and cool designer Jessica A.

Hostess Thank You Gift

Hello my friends,
Have you order your Christmas cards from MDS? I just did yesterday and I cannot wait to get them. I made a beautiful 5" x 7" postcard. There are only $1.08 (about that) each on 30% off. That is a great price. I used a download that came already with my MDS software. Gotta love MDS! Don't miss the 30% off. Order your scrap pages. I will mine, putting them all together since I need to have more than 5 in the same project to order them individually. Text me if you don't know how to do this ;)

Anyhow…here a few projects I made inspired by my friend and recent hostess Jessica A. Below her gift and a set of 3 x 3 cards I placed inside one of the door prize envelopes. Check my previous post to see those. Thanks Jess for not only wing a loyal friend but also my best supporter in the dreams God placed in my heart. Thanks for believing in me!


Inside I placed a set of 4 handmade cards with envelopes. I used the Tag a Bag 'bags', paper doily and Chalk Talk stamp and Framelits. Oh, and the Floral Shop with the Pansy Flower Punch.
Plus my favorite, Designer Vintage Button. :)

These are cute 3 x 3 I gave one of my guest as a doorprize. 
Top: Floral Shop and Sweetly Framed plus some washi tape.
Bottom: Friedns Kit (doily) and Round Array (now on discount1)


I totally love these Deco Labels Framelits and From My Heart Stamp Set
I also used the new Beautifully Baroque.

Colors are Pacific Point , Very Vanilla and Crushed Curry


Hope to inspire you a bit to keep making beauty around you. 
Never loose your zeal in what you've been called to do. RememberJ…Jesus
I read this a day ago…gee it blessed me!
" I am simply keeping in mind that this life isn't about me and my goals and my wants and my worries. 
I am here to fulfill His purpose for me, and my job is to keep my eyes open so I don't miss it."

Back to my love for Scrapbooking

I had some quiet time to sit and scrap a bit. I was inspired by several websites. First of all I would like to show you my "real paper" scrap page. I haven't scrap with paper in a while, thou that's how I started with paper crafting. I was truly inspired by CSI: Color, Stories and Inspiration, Case File No. 99.  I am sooo glad I found this place, it is so fresh, so encouraging, ladies so friendly. The colors for this week's case are fabulous. I happened to have this photo on my dresser's mirror since 2012! I love gazing at my boy and cherish the joy he reflects. Today at last I scrap the photo and I'm glad with the results. :)

My inspiration word was 'Gaze'.
My Evidence was fabric (twine bow), silver metal (clip), 6 of something (6 silver brads). :)
My Testimony was using stripes as journaling lines (hiding behind the photo, can you see them?), it takes two, you see two different fonts (in my "You are lovely" stamp and my "Gaze" title. (a third is in my own handwriting, but sshhh).
Today at last I scrap the photo and I'm glad with the results. :)

I was inspired by a Sketch in ScrapFriends here below. What a super cool website, I am for sure going back there often! :)


Materials:
All my products are Stampin'Up! and you can find them on my store. :)
Colors CS and Ink: Pistachio Pudding, Crumb Cake, Wild Wasabi, Coastal Cabana, Pumpkin Pie
DSP: DSP Packs Brights (chevron), retired newspaper type (circle)
Stamp sets: Photopolymer Show and Tell 1 "You are lovely", Notable Alphabet "Gaze", Gorgeous Grunge "spots", Photopolymer Show and Tell 2 "arrows/chevron"
Embellishments: Paper Doilies (brayered with Crumb Cake ink), Silver Mini Brads, This and That Epic Washi tape, Essentials Hardware Clips,
Tools: Envelope Punch Board
 

I love love scrapbooking digitally too since I met MDS (My Digital Studio). Never care about it because I thought it was too difficult. Wroong! Not with MDS. Lately I've been truly inspired to journal a bit on my second child. Assume because she is my busiest child. Lol!

I followed this awesome sketch from MDS Monday MDSM41. Let's get out the bling! Check this website, so much inspiration and so much you can do with MDS. Yipee!



click to see bigger

I used some rhinestones (wished I had sequins :/) but loving the bling!
I love the white on white background. It is hard to see really because is digital and my blog's background is white...but the white border you see around is actually a layer of Whisper White CS on top of the background. I was inspired by ScrapAfrica Challenge 23.
This month is "White with a Pinch of" So I used mainly white plus blue...and multicolor! ;)

Have you been scrapping lately? I scrap as able, my life remains as busy as always...I think after you have children that never changes, eh!? I'm ok with that. I am the most productive when I am the busiest. Weird but true. Have a blessed week! See you tomorrow with some Thank you card ideas!
It is the season to be grateful! I am indeed.


Thanks for being here...a pleasure to have you in my creative home!

Traced Doodling Technique

Today at Technique Twist we are playing with Traced Doodling. Wonza! I've never seen that before. At first I thought it was gonna be difficult but nope! It was not...the technique calls for watercolor penils BUT I had none so i traced my image with my Stampin'Up! Markers. :)
What do you think?


Stamp set: World Treasures, Sweetly Framed (sentiment)
Marker Colors: Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party, So Saffron, 
Ink Pad: Soft Sky
I stamped my image in Soft Sky, then doodled around as I wish with the markers. 
Not difficult at all! Different Style....I'm not TOTALLY sure I like my card but is good to try new things and this technique is fun. What do YOU think? Do you like this doodling look?

Check out the gorgeous cards my friends at Technique Twist made with this technique. Believe me, they will inspire you! There is also a Designer Team Call...check it out!
