12 Tags of 2012

Yes, I'm a Timster (a name I just made up for folks who LOVE Tim Holtz- LOL) even though you probably can't tell based on my scrapbook style which is kinda of all over the place. But never the less, I do love me some Tim Holtz! He is just amazing! So I was super excited when he announced the 12 Tags of 2012 because I can never seem to keep up with the 12 Tags of Christmas!  I rushed right out last week and luckily picked up the honeycomb paper that he used on his tag. Unfortunately, I could not get my hot little hands on the Valentine die and embossing folder so I improvised with his Bingo folder! I wish Tim/Sizzix would make the embossing folders longer to fit an entire tag from his Tag die set!!!! Hmm...perhaps I will email that suggestion- LOL!  Anywhoo...I went to a very fun crop today and met some ladies that are super sweet, generous, and crafty so of course there was more socializing than crafting, but thankfully I finished my tag and a card (all within 6 hours)!!!! Haha!
Anyway, here is my tag:

And, this is the card I made based on this weeks CPS sketch. I think I'm too late to enter the challenge, but hey...one more card down. I really need to build my card stash so I can just grab and go when I need one. I  wanted to kick myself for not having a wedding one ready for a bridal shower I went to this week...ugg paying $5 for a card at the store that I could have myself just chaps my hide!
Oh, and don't forget....
***The Docerela Creations blog hop and friendship challenge went up yesterday, and there is still plenty of time to play along!

***There are still a couple of days left to participate in Carri's birthday blog hop and win some pretty cool RAKS! I have one up for grabs, too.!

***There is time to play along with Scrap Your Crap's -Challenge #62 "stamp it up"!

So, go have a wonderfully scrappy rest of the weekend. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by!

Carri's Birthday Blog Hop!!!!

Hello and welcome to Carri's Birthday Blog Hop! If you just happened to be visiting today you may want to start at the beginning at  Georgiana blog! But if you are on track then let's get this party started!!!! First off, I want to say:

I am so excited about the hop and sharing some birthday project fun with you all! I decided to make a little birthday mini book to celebrate! I love the saying "live, love, laugh" and to me it encompasses three of the main elements of being happy! And birthdays are a perfect reminder to live longer, love harder, and laugh more often! If the sticker pack I used for the tabs would have had a phrase "eat cupcakes" I definitely would have included that, too! Ha! Anyway,  I made it using a Maya Road mini book, Scrapbook Circle's "The Good Life" kit (September 2011), and several other items from my stash!
 (the book is held together with d-rings, which I took off to photograph the pages side by side)

Well, I hope you like my birthday mini book, and if you have any questions about it or the products I used feel free to ask in the comments and I will answer! Thank you for visiting my little blog! I really enjoy meeting new crafty friends and as a special "thank you" I would like to offer you a box of random happiness which includes some of my favorite things like The Twittery twine, Prima flowers, Jenni Bowlin stickers, WRMK Cupid Stamp (love this little guy), Imaginesce bling,  Maya Road chipboard album and a few more goodies from my stash!  So take a look at these crafty goodies, and if you'd like to give them a new home leave me a comment and I will draw a random winner on February 28th! ****I'm only able to ship to US addressess due to the high cost of postage, sorry***

(sorry for the flash glare)
Oh, and be sure to follow my blog, so you will know if you are the lucky winner! And, actually, be sure to follow all of the ladies on the blog hop because Carri is offering an AWESOME prize, but you must be a follower of all the blogs on the hop and leave a comment on each one to be eligible to win! And, some of the other ladies are offering some pretty sweet prizes too! WOOHOO! 

So, again thank you for visiting and please hop on over to your next stop, which is Cely!
 I'm sure she has some super birthday cuteness to share with you!
 And, just in case you get lost along the way here's Carri's Birthday Blog Hop lineup:

Docerela Creations Blog Hop!!!

Happy Friday! Have you made your Valentine's Day cards yet? With only 4 days left why wait any longer! Come join us in our last Valentine's Day challenge! I have made more Valentine's cards this year than I have ever made and it feels great to be able to spread a little love via a handmade card! The new Docerela Creations "Loveable" stamp set has been perfect for adding just the right sentiment to many of my cards, and today's project is no exception. I was totally inspired by the stamps to create the title of my page which also happens to be a song that I like. I've been really inspired by songs lately! Well, anyway if you haven't guessed by now....

Today's challenge is Valentine's Day!

Supplies: Stamps: Docerela Creations "Loveable", The Girls Paperie (telephone); Chipboard: Dear Lizzy; Stickers: Cosmo Cricket; Twine: The Twinery; Ink: Jenni Bowlin, Ingrid Bolme, Tim Holtz, Versa Mark; Punch: Marvy Uchida; Everything else is from Noel Mignon 2010 February Valentine kit.

We are showcasing the Docerela Creations set "Lovable" so you will have to stop on over to her shop to take a peek at the other two newly released sets! (They are must haves!)

You can check out her store HERE!


I hope you will pop on over and visit the rest of the design team and join in our challenge over at Docerela Creations! And be entered to win a set of her stamps!

***Ooops, I had the best intentions of finishing these cards by Friday and had even planned ahead and pre-wrote my post, obviously it is Monday night bordering on Tuesday now....Life gets in the way of my scrapping sometimes- LOL***

Hello and Happy Friday to ya! I love it when things just naturally fall into place! Let me explain...Well, I stumbled upon the Faith Abigail Designs' Cards for Kids Valentine's Day blog hop last week and knew that  I was going to participate by making some cards and sending them to Faith Abigail who is going to distribute them to children who are in the hospital! Such an amazing cause and you should really hop on over and look at the gorgeous cards that these ladies made---AWESOME! So, I set a personal goal to make at least 10 cards, but my mojo was low on ideas...BUT...then I hopped on over to the  CPS- Card Sketches blog for some sketchy inspiration and guess what? They are celebrating their 5th anniversary with a party of a sketch a day! Woot Woot! Today is day 5 so that means I will make 2 cards each for each sketch; one for a boy and 1 for a girl...making me reach my goal of 10 cards! There is still plenty of time to play along with both of these blogs, so I encourage you to visit them!
*** Unless I get a crazy burst of energy in the morning I did not meet my 10 card goal, but I'm happy that I made it to 8!***

Ok, so here are the cards based on the CPS Sketches that I created for the Faith Abigail Valentine Cards for kids...
All 8 cards based on CPS Sketches
