Showing posts from January, 2012


So, it's that time again. Time for another giveaway. I have been busy here in Anaheim at CHA working in the Market Street Stamps booth and walking the floor finding lots of goodies for Peachy Keen's Peachy Picks.
I have met so many lovely ladies who I have previously only known through web and many new faces too.
I do have to say that I am missing my family, but I am also having so much fun here!
There are quite a few more coming, but here are a few pictures that I have taken over the first couple of days of the show.

MSS Block Party

Here is the project I made for this month's Block Party. I used one of the newest sets that were released earlier this week called Bon Voyage.
The pictures are of my newest nephew's birth day. After I took the picture I realized that the orange in the paper and the orange buttons didn't coordinate all that well, so I am going to change the buttons out.

Here are the details of the Block Party:

Good Stuff

Today's prompt for 365 Cards is "So Good" Use the word good in your sentiment but not to say goodbye.
The stamps I used are from Peachy Keen Stamps. The bear is from the Hillbilly Holler Set 2 and the sentiment is from Hillbilly Holler Set 4. The images were colored with Copics and the background was made using Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

Make sure that you go on over to the 365 Cards blog to check out all of the other challenges going on this week.

Cupid Love

Hello! I hope you all enjoyed the sneaks earlier this week for the new release from Market Street Stamps. Don't forget that the full reveal will be tonight at 7 pm CST.
Here is a card that I made using the January Peachy Picks kit from Peachy Keen Stamps. I just love this little cupid and can't seem to stop using it. The newest Peachy Picks kit was just revealed. you can find out more information about that here.

Enjoy the Ride

It's the final night of sneaks before the big reveal tomorrow! Are you sufficiently excited yet?
Here is my card. It is very clean and simple which fit these stamps perfectly. Remember to go on over to the Market Street Stamps blog and check out what the other design team girls made for their projects.

The sets will all be revealed tomorrow night at 7 pm CST. Also, don't forget that when you order the whole bundle, you will receive 25% off the whole lot, and 15% off for individual sets of the new releases. This deal only lasts for a week so make sure you take advantage of it while you can!!


IT'S DAY TWO!!!! You are all going to love this next set. FOR SURE! I had a load of fun with it, and I just used a small sampling.
Now, this is like the first layout I have made in almost a year, and I have missed scrapping so much. I must, I must get back into the swing of things. {Right after CHA!!} Do you know how much I loved the fact that I could just print off pictures from my phone? I used pics that I had used the Instagram app with and they came out awesome! So easy and no need to dress them up.

Ok, now RUN over and check out what the other design team girls did for their sneaks!!

Hello Lovey

So are you all ready to see some pretties for the first night of Market Street Stamps January releases? I know I had so much fun designing with them!!
Tonight's images were designed by Market Street's very own design team member, Tifany DeGough! Didn't she do an awesome job?!
I made the following three 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" note-cards. I think they turned out pretty darn cute if I do say so myself ;)
Make sure to check out the other lovely ladies blogs for additional sneaks.

Just a Note

Today's challenge for 365 Cards is Shape Up. Let's see some scallops on your card - it can be a scalloped circle or scalloped trim around your card, as long as you really make them count on your card.
I decided to use some scalloped cotton trim that I sprayed with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.
