sunshine

Happy Friday!!

Well...it's over...summer that is...for me anyway!! Monday is the first day of school...why does it feel like I'm the one going back to school....might I remind you all that I was Peppermint Patty (from the Peanuts gang)....LOL

Anyways....here's a card I created using our Doodle Flowers and Patterns for Him (I stamped the patterns onto the orange cardstock and blue strip) stamp sets (I'm feeling the need for a Doodle Flowers II). I glittered it to death (after I coloured the flowers with markers). I also used some SRM stickers.


 




I LOVE sunflowers!!!!....and pumpkins.....Fall is peeking it's head around the corner!! :)
 

Have a great weekend!

Jane's Doodles Stamp Release Blog Hop



Hi!
And welcome to another Jane's Doodles stamp release blog hop!! :)
We're releasing 5 sets this month....check them out!

Roses is hand drawn by me...I think everyone loves flower stamps....never goes out of style.


Suzi is another hand drawn set by me....there's a bit of a story to this.....I LOVE Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang.....to this day!! Peppermint Patty....oh that was so me! LOL So Suzi is inspired by the Peanuts gang and I named her Suzi...after one of my real life best friends! :)



Meet Winnie, Suzi's cousin... :)
Winnie is our latest digital stamp....she's a sweetie isn't she!



Now let's move onto Mariana's FABULOUS sets!!








I have to mention that I just received my stamps yesterday....so I had to make hybrid cards because I didn't want to postpone the blog hop anymore.....
Here's a tag I created using Winnie! :)


I used copics and Graph it markers to colour her. And a SRM sticker.



Ok....I think this is the most bling I've ever used on a single projects!!!!!!! I coloured the roses with Graph it markers, used the chevron pattern from our Patterns for Him stamp set to create my background. And another SRM sticker! :)


I think I'm going to send this card to my Mama! :) She loves flowers!



And last but not least Suzi! :)
She looks like my BF...the hair and the HUGE smile....Suzi's got one of the most biggest, beautiful smiles! And she's got a heart of gold....I'm a lucky gal to have her as my friend!


I stamped the butterfly from Mariana's Fly High set on the blue paper to create my background...I used versamark ink to creat a tone on tone look.


Alrighty then.....it's time to hop along to the next blog but before you do let me mention that we of coarse are giving away all the sets to one lucky winner so to improve your chances in winning please leave comments on each blog as you go. AND we have offering
 FREE SHIPPING
for the next two week on all our stamps! :)

Good luck and I hope you have fun and get inspired! :)

Christmas in August!

Hey!

I'll be sharing a few Christmas cards in the next few days....I like getting started on Christmas early....planning out gifts, cards etc. I actually start shopping in September...it's saves on time and easier on the wallet when you space it out! ;)

So here's a card I created using my Vintage Christmas stamp set, for the sentiment I used a SRM sticker. For those who don't know I use to be on the SRM Design Team and I continue to use SRM stickers because they're awesome, the company is awesome...!


I distressed this card using white and some of Tim Holtz distress inks (I believe Tea Dye and Vintage Photo)...and a little glitter action on ol' St. Nick's beard! :)



Are any of you thinking about Christmas? :)

Have a great day!

My Memories and a giveaway!

Happy Monday!!

And boy is it happy on the blog! I've got an exciting giveaway!! I've been contacted by My Memories to play around with their My Memories Suite software. I have mentioned before how I have no clue on how to use photoshop, illustrator etc. but I do digital stamps and create a lot of hybrid cards (best of both worlds) so I was really curious of how easy it really is........well it IS! I did this without reading any introduction, instructions or watching any of there videos! I'm leaving on holidays soon and wanted to share this with you all!

When creating this album I had a choice of using the designer templates or designing my own...from scratch! Since I'm a beginner I used this designer template but
I was really excited to learn that you can change all the elements...like for this first layout...I changed the title and added 'love' to the two black strips where it preciously had the days of the week on them. I did that by accident...I thought that all I would be able to do is add the photos and text but you can change it up! :)



Like I said I did this really quickly and wanted to share it with you all before I go back and make some changes...another bonus...you can always go back and make changes and/or adjustments.



Many of you know that my mom lives in Canada and these albums are just perfect! I know she would just love receiving these albums/layouts. I will also be doing my Christmas cards this way.....we have A LOT of family and friends and there is no way I can make handmade cards...just don't have the time.

I added some text on this layout....you pretty much can do whatever you want to do!



Now for the FUN part....I get to give one away!!! One lucky winner will get their own My Memories Suite Digital Scrapbooking Software!!! :)
To enter this giveaway pop on over to the My Memories website and choose your favourite digital paper pack or layout and comment on this post letting me know your favs!
I'm leaving on holiday in one week so I'll announce the winner then. Spread the word! :)
