TGF 's Hoppin into the Holidays

Hi everyone! It's that time to start up with the holidays! Here I am participating into TGF 's Holiday hop. Please check out TGF blog for more details. Here is my first creation for the "Let it snow" theme. I use images from TGF called Keep Cozy. I got this idea from Stamp Camp from Stampin Up but we made it into cards but here I made it into tags. Love these treat cups from Stampin Up, you can pretty much put anything small inside to make it fun . The Stampin Camp I went to they added glitter and water inside the treat cups, thought this would be great idea to make into some Christmas ornaments too.

Next here is my creation for the "Santa Baby" theme. I made these into Christmas gift cards holder. The image is from TGF called XMas Sweeties and Cheeky Rockabilly and use the Santa hat from Xmas Sweeties. On the left is a chimney GC holder and on the right is stocking. Both were made using my Cricut and DS.

Lastly here is my creation for the "Holiday Treats" theme. This is a cupcake holder. Image I use is Flirty Anya and added the Santa hat from Xmas Sweeties. Inside is a red velvet cupcake and I added kisses candy cane. Yummy!

Hope you guys like it. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your hop. Next stop is Becca Fabozzi .

Another Tinkerbell Invitation

Hi everyone and Happy Monday! Gosh I can't believe the weekend is over, where did the time go? Well anyway I hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving weekend and did a little shopping. For me didn't do any shopping this week, I wasn't in the mood to shop. Probably later on this week. I got a chance to go to the Christmas parade on Friday night. I got busy this weekend finishing up some invitation. So here is another Tinkerbell theme invitation. I needed to create 120 of these. It's another pocket invitation this style is a pocket tag invitation. She wanted to be a Tinkerbell theme with butterflies in it. I use my Cricut and DS to create this invitation template. Then I use my Big Shot and SU emboss folder for the floral background. The Tinkerbell emboss and cut is from Cuttlebug. The butterflies both small and large is from Martha Stewart punches. I also added a ribbon and a bling on the big butterfly. I have my son helping me put the ribbons on the butterfly and bling on it. So glad he likes to help me with these and it keeps him busy. Well that's it for today be sure to come back tomorrow as I will be participating on TGF HOLIDAY BLOG HOP until then enjoy the rest of your day.

Now, I need to get me one of that fries box die or wait let me see if I can try creating one this using my Cricut and DS. You just have to wait and see. Thank you so much Joy! I truly appreciated. In return of her kindness and generosity I made her this container fill with furikake chex mix. The image I use is from TGF - Hallo Witch it's a digi. But I hope they make it in rubber next year. Colored her with copics. Added some fun Halloween stickers on the design and lid cover and put some googly eyes. I'm so glad she likes it!Next one is a treat bag I made for some couple friends in the mainland. I also use another Greeting Farm image. This was last year stamp line and no longer carry it in rubber only digits. Inside is my favorite Hawaii best popcorn it's called Hawaiian Typhoon Microwave Popcorn bag. Yummy!

And here are some pictures of my son on Halloween. I know he wanted to be the ghost from Scream. Scary, he doesn't like to be anything cute anymore. It's amazing how grown up he's becoming.

October Tags Swap

Hi everyone ! So here is my October tags swap that I made. I was lucky enough to be partners with Kyoko who happen to be the host of the a monthly 3-Tag Swap. I'm having so much fun making them and I'm glad my partners enjoy getting them. Here I use images from TGF called Keep Cozy. I got this idea from Stamp Camp from Stampin Up but we made it into cards but here I made it into tags. Love these treat cups from Stampin Up, you can pretty much put anything small inside to make it fun . The Stampin Camp I went to they added glitter and water inside the treat cups, thought this would be great idea to have my son make some Christmas ornaments and added his picture inside to give it out as gifts to his grandparents and relatives. I have to set a time for this with my son and niece, I'm sure it will be fun! Well I made the template using my Cricut and DS! I don't have the right size circle punch to match the treat cup so I just use an estimate on the DS to make my own. I need to get me that circle punch. Well it work out as the way I wanted it to be. And had fun putting it together.

Here's what I received from Kyoko. Aren't these tag adorable. I so love the angels and how she made them look so pretty with the colors and bling she added. Thanks again Kyoko!

Well, I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend so far! Thanks again for stopping by!

Club Anya Monday Mania with me!

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you guys enjoy your weekend. As for me, I went to the Island Girls Summer Social #2, organized by Teri of Big Ideas From A Little Girl. She work so hard organizing and putting this together. Thank you so much Teri. I had a great time and so did my BF Ana that I invited. She does a little of crafting time to time. She also won the grand prize which was some of the new stamps from dandelion designs and a sizzix cupcake holder diecut. Yay! Congratulations to Ana, I'm sure you will have fun with those goodies.

Well anyway, moving on I was so excited when Amy e-mail me asking me to host Club Anya Monday Mania for this week challenge. So this challenge I want you to "Make a Scene" project or card. I chose this challenge because I just love adding bits of details to the card and really make the images look more real. There are a lot of themes to make a scene. So I want you to join in the fun and make a Scenery card. Here I use Flirty Anya, she's smiling to get Surfer Ian attention and I'm sure Surfer Ian notice her looking at him. So he try to show off his skills on the surf board. I made it into a step ladder card so it would be easier to make Ian look more real and fun on the waves. The die cut of the sun is my my Cricut using the cartridge from Life's A Beach. I even use EK Success Sandcastle border punch and added some little friends to join along they are from some cut out papers from Imaginisce Bathing Beauties. I had so much fun making this card and I hope you have some time to "Make A Scene" LOL. I hope you enjoy the beginning of your week.

Sending Smiles Your Way!

Hi everyone! Oh gosh can believe it finally Friday. I just had such a long week, last week we had visitor from the mainland and my son started 2ND grade. Then this week my hubby sister will be leaving tomorrow to go back to Oregon for college and I was sick for 2 days. Gosh time sure fly by so quickly and can't believe summer has ended. I been quite busy with invitations that I had to finish and been going out with the visitor we had. Also sign up my son for Karate class so I been taking him to his class and just watching him for an hour, then afterwards we would probably go eat lunch or dinner. Anyway I decided to take a break and do some coloring. I miss using my copics and I got some new colors that came in. So I'm up for a challenge. I made this card for the challenge at Club Anya Monday Mania. This week challenge is hosted by Sheng and it is all about the buttons. Since I have tons of these flower buttons I thought about using them and that it would be perfect for the C.C Designs Swiss Wheelbarrow stamp I just got. Here I use Spotlight Anya. I always wanted to learn different technique in using my copics and try to color my best using them. I came across Lysa's Shiny black hair video and it was easy to follow but however when she say light stroke it so hard because my hands feels heavy. But practice makes perfect. LOL. You should stop by because it such a great tutorial to follow if you want to learn how to make shiny black hair. Well time for bed and here are a few pictures I wanted to share with you folks on my son's karate class. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Organizing my TGF stamps

Hi everyone! I'm such a big fan of TGF and most of my stamps are TGF. Just wanted to share with you folks on how I store TGF stamps. I have a 12X12 photo album and it happen to be a 3 ring album. It has a 5 pockets of 4x6 photo sleeves insert in one sheet front and back but I decided to only put the stamps on the front because it will be to bulky. The 4x6 image card I trim them down a little so that it will fit inside the3 3/4 x 5 3/4 laminated sheets. Made it to this size so that it will be easy to take it out and insert it to the photo sleeves. Then I laminated TGF image card and put the stamps on the back of them. For the 3x3 TGF images, I cut a 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 cardstock and paste 2 of the3x3 TGF image cards. Then laminated. For those that didn't come with the image card, I had to stamp them and colored the image. The 8x12 TGF stamps kits I put it into a 12x12 insert page. Have a wonderful weekend!

A thousand sheets of Paper !!!!!

Amy Young of A thousand Sheets of Paper has been keeping track of the number of different sheets of pattern paper that she had cut into for making her cards and see how long it would take to get to 1000. That's the reason why she called her blog "A thousand sheets of Paper". It took her a little over a year. Wow that's a brilliant idea and finally completed her task. In celebrating her blog anniversary and her completing the use of 1000 sheet of paper. She has 1000 sheets of 6x6" papers to give away to five lucky people. So that is 200 sheets each and some goodies. Please stop by her blog and see what else she as in store for us, while you are there check out her amazing creations and her adorable stamp images she design.

My hubby had to work during 4th of July and my son wanted to go to his cousin house for a BBQ so he went with my mom. I didn't go because I'm trying to get somethings done. I have to create a beach theme birthday party invitation for a customer. I did a few sample and will show you folks later when I'm completely done with it.

Summer Lovin'

Good Morning! I made this card using the following recipe for Monday Mania over at Club Anya & Friends. Last week MM was hosted by Margie using the following recipe was to use kraft cs, use green, one dp, and 1 embellishment +/- ribbon. Here is my take on Margie's recipe. I used kraft paper for the border, sand, and tree also on the coconut but color it brown with my copic. For the sand part I actually sprinkle some real sand on it, to make that effect. Got the coconut tree using my cricut. My embellishment is the beach mat it's actually a piece of cloth and added a ribbon on it. I use Cheeky Rockabilly and altered Dylan and Paul but added flip flops from HG-Sing. This card is for my hubby we are celebrating our anniversary today. Sentiment state You & Me and inside of the card I put "paradise". Since we dated during summer time we spend our summer mostly on the beach as he loves the beach. Also entering this card for Diedrich Dare -photo inspiration (summer theme). Well that's all for now. Have a great day!

TGF.... Dads & Dudes Contest

Hello all and Happy Sunday! Hope you guys are enjoy the rest of your weekend. Well last week TGF was hosting a contest for Dad's and Dudes in honoring Father's Day. Anyway my son always like to help and join in the fun just as long as he is spending time with me. He likes when I'm doing crafting with him. It was hard to convince my hubby to give it a try. Finally he wanted to participate in it. So he spend the day coloring with my son on Wednesday since we had a BBQ party at his parents house. The rule is that they need to case one of the cards that Jessica 's boys had created. My hubby likes to practice using the pens and what was so special about these copics pens. I told him that this was great for blending. He practice on a few images and finally got the one he wanted was this image Skater Ian. He did a great job blending and he really see why I love using my copics and how fun it is to color. BTW he case #1.

Here is my son card and he case #2. He is 7 years old. He made this card for my hubby's mom birthday coming this week. He chosen the color paper and DP. He knows Mama loves pink and shiny stuff to make it pretty.
Well I'm so glad they had fun and hope they do some crafting time again. Thanks for stopping by.
