Saturated Canary " Alice " Rubber Buggy project card

Hi friends it's Kelly here and I'm in the mood to travel so let's go to Wonderland with this absolutely adorable Saturated Canary image Alice.  She is modeled after the Alice in Wonderland and she is just so fun to color & stamp.   I cant' wait to do more stamping with her.  I also added the Designed labels die to this card and used the Prima Anna Maria papers from The Rubber Buggy.  Last I added some of the Petaloo flowers in the black to accent and they are just perfect for this adorable little piece.  

Thank you for visiting ~Kelly

Layered Keyhole note card

Today I have a new card to share with you that I created.  I used an EK Success punch that is actually used to make rolled flowers, but I used it to layer some amazing detail at the bottom of my card.  I then layered the same colored paper at the top and added the ribbon you see from Websters pages that reminded me of a zipper.  I used a Graphic 45 keyhole then and added some pearl bling from Prima on the nail holes.  The paper was from The Rubber Buggy and it's called Prima Hello Pastel.  I finished the card off with a beautiful crochet lace ribbon bow.  

Rubber Buggy products used were:

Hello Pastel 6x6 paper from Prima
Graphic 45 ornate metal key holes

Thanks for looking ~Kelly

The Greeting Farm Stamp Club # 1 Stamp " FAIREST "

In January I joined the Greeting Farm stamp club.  It's a new stamp club they created for amazing new designs in stamps and you get a significant discount, plus just the anxiety and excitement of waiting for the mail for that new exclusive package is the most fun.  The club was $26 + $3 per stamp a total of $29 for me.  It will cost a bit different with each state for shipping.  If you have already signed up let me know what you think of your first stamp and if you havent', the next batch of club opening will be happening sometime in March so look forward to that coming.  Here is the newest lady of the bunch and how I colored her, my own "SNOW WHITE" Fairest of them all!

A card of Reflection for The Rubber Buggy

I made a card this week as I was thinking about the past year and what I would like for 2014 and so I decided to do a card with the title reflect.  I am thinking of sending this to a friend of whom I havent' seen in a while and thinking about our time spent apart has made me miss her terribly.  I want to reflect on our old/good times and look forward to more in the upcoming year.

I used The Rubber Buggy Prima Anna Maria paper for this card and it's pretty simple.
I added some Petaloo flowers and a few dark houndstooth print accent colors and the image is Saturated Canary colored with my copics. 

Thanks for looking!  ~Kelly

All about a bookshelf....YES I CAN

Did you ever sit and look on pinterest at all the amazing projects and proclaim "Wow, I wish I could do that". A few minutes later you realize, duh I could do that.  Then you sit and talk yourself out of why you shouldn't do that.  Finally coming to the conclusion that nah, I'm not going to bother.   Well I am here to try to stop the cycle, at least for myself.

I found a pin similar to this on a friend's profile.  I mentioned to her that I love the look of the bookshelf with the typewriters.  My father showed up at my house this summer with 2 typewriters knowing how much I was wanting an old typewriter and want to try using one sometime, she said yes you should.  Those 3 words were a catapult to what would be not only a statement that resonated in me, but also a new way to think for the upcoming year.  I don't make resolutions because I like to give myself small goals throughout the year, making a huge goal;  well let's just say I am my worst enemy for encouragement but something in those words struck a cord and I thought yes I should.  So from this pin-spiration.....

...comes this pin-spiration....

....and my mantra for 2014 it's going to be YES I CAN!

Remembering Christmas & Creativity

Better late than never crafy idea for Recycling wrapping paper.  

Starting here...I know Christmas is over but if you keep a journal for next year or need a special treat for a birthday in winter here is a great way to save some money.  

My daughter loved Hannah Montana and so years ago we invested in after Christmas sale wrapping paper with her character show.  I found some in a closet; I cringed at the thought of using it as she is truly no longer a role model or part of our regular show watching routines.  I had to think outside of the box and so I looked into pinterest and this is what I came up with.  Wrap the items inside out with the white paper showing and then go to my craft room and create Frosty in wrapping paper.  I cut the 3 holes for the black buttons, then made his eyes, an orange nose (with glitter) and then the mustache instead of a smile.  Here it is all finished and what a very cute easy way to recycle old wrapping paper.  What are your ideas share with me here or on YouTube.
