Hi.. I'm back with my second dress form for the challenge... this was a lot of fun to make.. I used a little wooden box I got at the thrift store.. I put some Graphic 45 paper in the back of the box then stamped a chandelier ( my favorite stamp from Stampendous ) then added some fabric flowers from Joann's and some Recollections bling.. The dress form, spool and button are a Tim Holtz die. I heat embossed them 3 times with Stampendous "Pearl Garnet" powder and while they were still warm I took a big flourish stamp and stamped into them.. I love this look.. It adds so much texture.. I added some pretty lace with pearls around the box and some lace and a little flower to the dress form.. the flower is from Prima.. I also added some Pink Stickles to the dress form...
This is what the box looked like before I got my hands on it :)
Hope you are having a great week.. it has cooled down a little bit here in Cali... but I know it won't last... :( Hugs.. Jen

Hi everyone, here is a card I made for the "Piece by Piece " challenge.. This month the challenge was to transform a dress form.. this is my first time doing this challenge and it was really fun.. I have another dress form I am altering and I will share that with you when it is finished.. you can enter as many times as you want.. ( ) First I stamped the background with a Hero Arts stamp (Variety & Quality ) you can't see it to well but it is a really cute old fashioned ad stamp. The dress form is a Tim Holtz die. I used a Martha Stewart punch and some cute trim from Joann's... the "You Are Fabulous" stamp is from the Michael's dollar bin. I used grunge paper and fabric to cut out the dress form then added a little skirt and some inked seam binding.. and of course a little bling, pearls and a little flower.. Thanks for stopping by... hugs... Jen

Hi everyone, sorry I haven't been here for a while but I have been having a good time with my grand kids... they LOVE to go in the pool & it's been so hot here I have been lovin' it too :) I have also been youtubing :) I have meet so many new friends. You can find me at sgit56 on youtube.. I have put up a few videos.. so fun :) Here is a card I colored with my new Prismacolor pencils.. I really love them, so much easier than Copics.. for some reason I just could not get the shading and stuff right. I made the border strip, some Recollections flowers & a cute button..
I got this stamp at the last Scrapbook Convention.. I used all scraps..
This is the inside.. I used Spellbinders and a Fiskars punch..
Thanks for stopping by.. hugs... Jen

Hi Friends... what is it with me and Paris ???? I just love anything that has the Eiffel Tower on it or has anything to do with Paris.. maybe it's the black & pink that is always associated with it.. who knows :) This was made from all scraps.. I used a EK Success punch, a Eiffel tower stamp that I cut out and put on some Martha Stewart "white gold" glitter.. "Ooh La La" stamp from Studio G... the little pink and white trim I found at the antique mall.. flowers are Petaloo.. I have been having a good time altering a couple of wood boxes from the dollar store, and making a smash book... SO FUN.. no rules just do what you want and then when finished just smash stuff into the book, like, things your kids made, pictures from magazines you want for inspiration... tickets... pictures... recipes... journaling... anything you want... watch for a video on my youtube channel (sgit56)... Well, enjoy the rest of your week... hugs... Jen

Hi friends... hope everyone had a good week. The weather here was perfect so I spent a lot of time outside with my kids (dogs:) we had the sod put in, now I just need to do the rest.. and I can't wait... I really love going to the nursery and picking out the flowers and shrubs... but I leave the planting to my husband :) Anyway here is a cute card I made... I really wanted to use red.. the background paper is from Sassafrass Lass.. I used a rose stamp from Inkadinkadoo and stamped it in red all over the paper. I edged the sentiment ( from Michael's dollar bin ) with a Martha punch.. I cut out the mat using a template from Kiwi Lane Designs and the bracket across the top is Spellbinders "Elegant Posts" ... ribbon and flower are from my stash... And I just LOVE the little napkin the card is laying on... you can take it to a picnic and it comes with ants... so cute :) Well, enjoy the rest of your day.. hugs.. Jen

Happy Wednesday !! I'm really enjoying this week, some people call it "June gloom" but I love it :) about 72 here with a cool breeze and a little overcast... Perfect... I'm dreading the 100 degree days, that's when I stay in with the air on !! Here is a card I made using a little bit of fabric ( the patterned strip in the back of the envelope ) I also used a little doily and envelope I cut out on the Cricut. The orange felt flower and leaves are a die from Papertrey Ink...
I Inked everything with Ranger " Vintage Photo".. the sentiment on the tag is from two different stamp sets, both from Michael's dollar bin ..
We are in the process of finishing the landscaping in our yard, I will share the photos with you when it's done... I cant wait :) Hope you are all having a good week... catch ya later... Jen

Happy Friday :) Hope everyone is safe.. I have family in El Reno, Okla where a tornado touched down this past week, luckily everyone is ok... I think i would rather have earthquakes !! Anyway, here is my card... sort of out of my comfort zone :) but i wanted to do something a little different.. it took all of my willpower to keep from adding more "stuff".. this is very plain looking to me, but that's what a lot of people like... so I gave it a try... I used DCWV "Mod Retro" paper, butterfly is old sheet music cut out with a Papertrey ink die... a small chipboard piece from my stash that I stamped... and a little bling :)
This is the inside... "May your birthday be filled with all the desires of your heart"...
Well, its Memorial day weekend and I am staying home, to many crazies out there... I have a lot of things to get done in my scrap room... cleaning (yuck), and reorganizing... and of course more card making (BIG smile)... Whatever you decide to do this weekend, stay safe and have fun !!
hugs... Jen

Hi friends... well, as hard as I tried, I could not get a good picture of this card !! Sorry it's so light, I tried :(... It's a real pretty turquoise blue and orange.. I used DCWV paper.. Butterfly is a die from Papertrey Ink. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the bottom orange paper..
The flower is fabric that I cut out with a Sizzix circle die and inked the bottom three circles with Ranger "Tea Dye" ink.. cant remember where I got the tag.. I used some alpha stamps and bling from Michael's dollar bin.. I really love the Kraft cardstock ( Bazzill )..

Good morning... hope you all had a great weekend. It's been two years since we moved in here and we are finally getting the sprinklers done and then the grass... I can't wait !! I have all of my yard "stuff" in the side yard just waiting for me to put out.. I'm really looking forward to going to Lowes and getting all of the plants :) I will share a pic when its finished... Anyway... here are a couple of cards I made with my new Papertrey Ink stamps i got last week... On this one I used the "Tiny Tags" stamps and die from PTI and I also used Spellbinders, Tim Holtz and Martha Stewart... so fun to use multiple dies and punches, it really adds a lot of dimension to the card...
Here are the tags with a couple of sentiments.,,, aren't these the cutest !!..
On this card I used the "Postmark" stamp set from PTI... I LOVE this set... I cant wait to do some 4th of July cards :) I also used an image from K & Co... a little paper flower made with a Donna Salazar die..
Well, I'm going to see how the yard is coming along... have a good day... hugs... Jen

I'm really lovin' the purple... and the music stamp with the Spellbinders die to match... Love it !! First I used a Tim Holtz "Music Note" embossing folder on the background paper, then a Martha Stewart "Loops" punch on the checked paper.... I used Spellbinders "Labels 13" and then stamped with "Music Label" from Sparkle N Sprinkle... in Ranger "Dusty Concord" ink... I added a little sentiment.. some seam binding I inked with the same ink... butterfly is cut from a Papertrey ink die and the little button I made with my new punch from Epiphany Crafts... ..Whew !!! I have a special friend in mind for this card :) I purchased a lot of things at the Scrapbook conv. in Del Mar a few weeks ago and I am really anxious to use them... dies, paper, punches, embossing folders etc. so hopefully you will be seeing me here more often... so... I'm off to do some crafting :)... hugs... Jen

Happy Friday everyone !!! I received my order from Papertrey Ink yesterday and I couldn't wait to make a card using my new stamps and dies.. here I used the "Dress Form" die and stamp set... so dang cute :) I used my polka dot stamp with some Versamark and heat embossed it with Stampendeous "Sky Blue" powder.. I used some ink I had ( I think I got this ink in a kit years ago, there was no name on the ink pad but it matched perfectly :) to stamp the dress from and the sentiment... it says "Wishing you a Fabulous day" ( sorry for the light pic... I tried to get it darker but it didn't look good ) the fancy border is from my stash.. the felt I cut out of Papertrey wool felt, this stuff is so nice to work with... I used my Spellbinders Donna Salazar "Rose Creations" die.. I got a "Flip" video from my son for Mothers day so I will be taking a video of my completed craft room when I get a chance to share with all of you.... I really appreciate you stopping by and comments are always welcome... Have a great weekend.. big hugs... Jen

The Ladies :) Hi everyone.. sorry I've been gone for a while, I have slowly been working on my scrap room & still not feeling 100%.. that pneumonia really kicked my butt !!! Anyway, here is a card I made for my friend Elaine... I LOVED this image the minute I saw it and the sentiment is so funny... but I can't share that with you cause I will be making this card for a few of my lady friends and I don't want to ruin it when they open the card... This stamp if from Art Impressions and it is titled "Girlfriends".. I colored it with my Copics and added a little Stickles... sorry you cant see it :( I used some cute green polka dot ribbon and added two buttons in the corner... very simple cause that picture is all you need :) Hope you are all having a great week... the weather is beautiful here so I think I will go sit outside with a big glass of tea and enjoy it for a while... hugs... Jen

A Quickie... Just wanted to show you my little helper... I picked up Sophie and she got right up on my desk and made herself at home... she looks very cute, but the trouble is I couldn't get anything done... and heaven forbid you move the dog and make her uncomfortable :) so she sat there and I typed over her for about an hour... think she's spoiled ?? Hope you're having a good day... enjoy... Jen

TP mini !!! Yes, this is really made out of tp tubes... this was so much fun to make, so quick and easy... I had to flatten out the tubes under my very heavy dinning table for a couple of days, they really didn't want to flatten out :) I used all paper from DCWV "Mademoiselle", lots of pretty paper in this stack..
Four places to hold more pictures.....
Cool Dude :)
A fold out to hold more pics.. and a birdcage stamp from Michaels...
Filled with pictures of my grandkids...
A little pocket...
with a accordion book...
the pink & black polka dot folders are Teresa Collins...
Love the crown paper...
Four tags for more pictures...
I used my Bind-it All with pink wire, added a little bling and ribbon...
A flower from K & Co. .. bling & Fleur-di -Lis from Jolees...
The End....
Hope you enjoyed seeing my TP Mini... try it yourself.. I know you have tp tubes...:)
Hugs... Jen

Sassy Cheryl's 59 ... "Think Spring" was the challenge this week.. I saw this little girl and she made me think of spring, holding her little flower..and the look on her face :) so dang cute !!! I used DCWV "Blossom Song" stack.. a little feather (Michael's) some seam binding I inked with Ranger "Shabby Shutters".. I am trying to get some good pictures of a TP mini album I made... yes I said TP as in toilet paper ( just the cardboard tube) its to dark right now so I will try again tomorrow and hopefully share with you Monday .... I've also been making "yo-yo's" (fabric) and I have a few ideas for those to share ... so much fun stuff to do and so little time :)... Have a great weekend... hugs... Jen

Bunny Cookies.. My granddaughter was over a couple weeks ago and she went to the grocery store with me and found the "Bunny Cookies"... she was so excited.. "Grammie.. let's make cookies" and of course I can't tell her no... (what kind of a grammie would I be if I did :) Anyway.. here she is putting he cookies on the pan.. she thought she was really baking (big smile)
Then of course you have to watch them bake...
and then you have to get a picture of eating the cookies...
I had this little strawberry basket that I added a little handmade flower to & a little Easter card.
The cookies were so cute.. I'm not a baker... so Alyssa won't be learning a lot of that from me.. but I can teach her how to cook almost anything and I know we will have a lot of fun in the kitchen :)
Thanks for stopping by... hugs... Jen
