A card for HHH

August.28.2009

Good morning!  I’m finally taking part in HHH.  This is so exciting.  Some of the gals in the forum were talking about using a tree stamp this week.  I said, “I’m in!”  I LOVE trees!  Trees and birds, but you all know that.  So, here is the card I created:

I used the Burberry Tree stamp.  This is the cutest little tree stamp every!  It is so versatile.  I’ve had those felt leaf stickers from Target FOREVER and I thought they’d look adorable on that little tree.  This is one of my favorite cards I’ve ever made.  I just love the way it turned out.

I used plenty of buttons.  I started out with only 3 and I thought this needs more!  I love buttons!

I usually keep it simple with my cards, but I really like the look of ones that have a lot of detail.  So, I tried to do that with this one.   That little leaf brad is from the dollar bins at Target too!  You can find some great stuff there.  Don’t you just love that green frame.  It’s from the Chloe’s Closet line by Making Memories.  They were on clearance at Michaels.  I wish I had bought more of them.

Thanks for looking!

It’s Monday

July.27.2009

Blah, why does it seem like it’s always Monday?

I have some new videos to make. I want to share with you the super cute stuff my sister bought for me. She loved the wedding album I made and now she wants a honeymoon album! Stay tuned to see some super cute summer/island/vacation themed products.

I also bought some stamps from Unity Stamp Co. and they just came in. These stamps are so great! This is my first purchase from them and I think they are a great company to deal with. The shipping was super quick and the products are wonderful, high quality stamps.

Plus, I got my prize from Two Peas in a Bucket. These are adorable die-cuts. There are four pages of them! I think they are from My Little Shoebox, but if I’m wrong I’ll update to let you know.

I’ll try to get to work on this video tonight. I’ve had a dead battery for a couple of days and I finally remembered to charge it. So check back tomorrow for a video post of my new stuff!
