Monday, September 28, 2009


Hi guys, Ive been experimenting with some envelopes on my Cricut and just wanted to let you know that Doodlecharms makes the cutest little envelope with a notch already cut at the top...I did it at size 4....would be perfect for minis :)

I am going to a friends house today to learn how to make rovings from my alpaca fiber (she has the machine) wish me luck!

September Kit

Recieved my September Kit today for DSC. Everything looks wonderful, I only have 3 Distress ink pads and the one I got with the kit was, can you believe it, one I already have! Oh well next time Ill be more specific. I did have the option to pick and left it up to them, but I will use it because Ive already used the one I have a bunch. I just hope I do a good job with it.....Ill probably start late Saturday cus thats when Mike goes back to work.

First Pocket Mini Album

Ok so I've been on the internet the last few weeks looking at all the cool mini album projects. There are a few that really stand out and I will be posting links to all their sites on the side bar but would just like to say a special thanks to Marion at and Bona at Keep on Scrappin . They have really inspired me to try a few more of these.

This one is called a pocket album and it is on several sites but I think Marion started it. It is made from envelopes cut in half and then covered with paper and emblished. Mine is made using the DCWV Luxury Stack, Labels under pics were from K & Company, Pima flowers, assorted ribbons, and the majority of my embelishments are from Making Memories. Tags were cut on Cricut.

My Pink Stamper

The Pink Stamper set up a new website and couldnt get her old name so now it is "My Pink Stamper" she is having challenges and give aways all week to celebrate her 1,000,000 hit. Congrats Robyn!

Yesterdays challenge was to use any real old tools to make a page or card....well I didnt have anything but her card was Halloween so it inspired me to make this! The tree and pumpkin are from Cricut Paper Doll dress up cartridge.

New cards

These cards were made to tell our vet "get well" and to thank our alpaca rancher friend (Elegante Vellon) for helping deliver Tess.

Lots of new cards

Ive been holding back some pics of cards untill they were recieved in swaps. So here they are!

Swap - Black and White w/touch of color, I was really happy with the black and white and it was something I came up with and not something that I got an idea from on another site! I may make more like this.

Something with the Letter O

Its a Girl!

Well we had our new cria yesterday. I got a little nervous and called for some help, but everything went fine. We think her name is going to be Contessa Royal, Tess for short. I'm still going out and checking everything ever few minutes but you would never believe her mom is a first timer let her nurse immediately and does not even leave her side for a second, but she is good and lets me handle her for the things I need to do. She was 16.6 I will go out and weigh her again in about an hour. One more to go in about 2 weeks.....Keep thinking Pink lol

Mini gift album

Found a cute project today at its a little album you can carry with you (only holds 3 pics). Came out pretty cute but the pictures aren't so hot...think its the color...looks like it doesn't match but it does. My camera is usually great so don't know whats up with that. Anyway check out their site. Theirs is much girlier (is that a word lol)
