Hello my fellow crafty peeps!


Hi Everyone!
 
It's been a hectic year already and it's just starting.
 
So many new possibilities for me this year that I'm so excited about. I'm sad to share that I'll be taking a break from teaching Copic Classes. As much as I'm sad this is such a great way for me to focus on my new Journey. Which involves Fun Stampers Journey! I'm thrilled about the opportunity that I have with this company. Taking a break from my classes will give me the chance to focus on this and still have time to be creative with my Design Teams! So YAY!
 One door closes and another is always waiting to be opened, right?!
 
So I went to CHA last Saturday and I loved seeing my pals. Jamie Dougherty and the Bloom Girls DT are ABSOLUTELY a blast! Jamie took us all out to dinner and then we went to the Prime Blogger Networking Party. It was a lot of fun and it was so great getting to meet the faces behind the blog! I also got to walk the floor with my dear friend and Upline Cindy. We walked that show for 3 hours and I cannot believe how time flew by. It was fun. Hopefully next year I'll be able to go for more than a day!
 
I haven't had much time over the last few weeks with the Holiday's, Work, CHA, Family.. but I did get a chance to sit and color a little last week. Here's a quick card I through together using 

 
Have you seen the new Bloom Girl Stamps! Oh my goodness!
You are going to LOVE these. Here's a card I created using the new 'Bloom Girl Stamp Emily' and the background was created using The Bloom Girl Stencil 'Spark'.  I colored then gorgeous image with my Copics of course.

I hope you enjoy my card. I have lots of posts coming soon. I'm in the process of scheduling them. :)

Merry Christmas Eve!

 
I can't believe it's Christmas Eve.
We are having Christmas at my house this year and I'm really excited about it.
 
Yesterday I cleaned.
Today I'm going to be setting up the tables.
 Right now Ralph's making me breakfast. :)
 Kids are barely getting up.. well the teenage boy isn't.
 

Today I'm off and I will have to get up and be at work in the morning at 5am. I hope this will be the last year I have to work on Christmas. That's what I want for Christmas!

Good things are happening in 2015! I can feel it.

Here's an ornament I made using the Julie Nutting wooden ornaments. I painted it with acrylic paints and embossed in gold and used crackle accents a the new Prima Finnabair glitter. I really LOVE the way it came out. The photos really doesn't do it justice.

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!

 I have a Mixed Media Canvas to share with you for Limor Webber's Design Team. I have taken some bits and pieces of paper and created my own adorable snowman. I've added some fun mixed media elements to give texture and shine and pops of color. I absolutely adore the way this piece has come out.

Happy Holidays!

Bloom Girl Sharon Mixed Media Notebook!



Hello crafty friends, It's my turn to post on the Bloom Girl DT Blog!
I have an altered notebook to share with you. I will be completely honest. About 20 min into this project I was like ok, I'm done... this looks HORRIBLE! I almost turned off the camera. Then I was like you know what.. let's go with it.. I can always delete the video and start over.. I might as well try some new ideas and techniques. So I did and I'm so glad I did, too!
 
 
Here's my notebook I came up with.


 
 



 
 
I hope you enjoyed the photos.. I hope you will check out how I created this in my video below,

A Simple Lili of the Valley Christmas Card!

Hello crafty peeps!
Today I have another simple Christmas card to share. I'm using this adorable Christmas Set
by Lili of the Valley. I think that many people overlook these acrylic stamps that LOTV have because the rubber ones are so stinking cute! But-- you are missing out on some great images in the other stamp categories. Great for the crafter who doesn't color and awesome for the mixed media artists out there! I used my inks from Fun Stamper Journey!
 
Enjoy my video below!

Hi everyone!
I have another clean and simple card to share with you. I'm whipping these babies out.. I might actually send out Christmas Cards this year! I have used my Fun Stampers Journey star stamp that came in my starter kit. It's called Banner Party Stamp Set and has some fabulous matching dies to go with it! I didn't get a chance to order Christmas stamps so I'm showing simple and versatility. This can really be a card for ANY occasion. I hope you enjoy my little video. :) It's just under 2 minutes!

Create your own December Daily!


 Hi there everyone. It's time for my post on the Limor Webber Blog!
 
I decided to make my own December Daily. I love the way it came out. I just plan on typing out my daily dos and layering them on the page. Simple but it will get done this year!  Here's some photos and there's a video below. Check it out!
 
 
 
 
 
I also took the little mini files that come with the card boxes from Michaels and added them as pages, just for another type of element to the pages.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here's the video I hope you enjoy it.
Have a fantastic day!

Merry Christmas 'Summer'!

Hi there my crafty peeps. Today I have a card to share using the 'Summer' Stamp and ironically I made a Christmas Card using her. That's just how versatile these gorgeous stamps are!
While at Michaels last week I found these berries and poinsettias and they are a little big but I knew they would be PERFECT with this image! I LOVE the way this card came out. The Sentiment is by Lili of the Valley, 'Christmas Wishes'.
 
If you haven't gotten this gorgeous image yet we have a list of stores you can buy from HERE.
 
Have you seen the Bloom Girl Video Library? Tons of Bloom Girl Projects to check out.
 
Hope you all have a wonderful Day!

Lili of the Valley Blog Hop and new Coloring Video!

Hello everyone.
 Lili of the Valley has done it again with another gorgeous "I have to have collection"!
These new stamps will be available in the Lili of the Valley Shop on Saturday the 22nd. They will be available online on Monday the 24th.
 
There's 10 new fabulous stamps and 3 new paper pads in this release.
Check out the sneak peeks from the designers.
 
As always, Lili of the Valley is so generous a random comment will be chosen from one of our blogs and you will win a set of goodies from this release!
 
 
 
Here's my card I chose to use this cutie, "Afternoon Stroll". I also have a video on coloring this image and creating a scene. I created clouds by coloring negative space. I normally create grass all around the image but this time I decided to make grass only behind her as if she was walking along a path.. taking an 'Afternoon Stroll'.
The papers I used are Lili of the Valley's Up, Up and Away paper pad.
 
Here's the video. Sorry for the bad lighting. It was cloudy when I was recording.
I hope you enjoy the video and the hop!
Have a wonderful day!
