Good Morning!

I am sure some of you have noticed that I have skipped blogging for a bit.  Honestly I just needed to take a break and catch up on some things. I will more than likely not blog again for a couple weeks. 

I had a fabulous time Learning at Copic Boot Camp 2018. I have to admit, I love to color!  Boot Camp was fast paced and full of fun and knowledge. Jen Dove is amazing as well as all her "Minions! 
Here are some pictures from camp, and some things I colored! 
My Boot Camp Boots!
Because how else would you round out 4 days of Copic Boot camp than
by coloring some BOOTS!

Jen in the center, and her Fab team!

Yes! they actually dressed as minions! 
I am seriously embarrassed by day 1! but look what I was able to do by day 4.

I hope you enjoyed a little peek at what I was able to accomplish.

for continuing to stop by!

More of This Little Piggy

I know!  I feel the same way!  
Let's get to it.

This Little Piggy 

Found on page 33 of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog or Online .

As Usual the Annual Catalog has some great idea samples:

This stamp set is also part of the You Can Make It series.  What this means is: you can get everything featured above by using one item number #149034.  Great right?  Takes away the guess work of what to order.  There are quite a few of these in the catalog, and I am hoping they continue in the next Catalog!  ( I'll let you know in November 😉😜)

I just really love the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. It has been popping up on a lot of my cards.   The circle was cut using The Layering Circle Dies, that layer was also mounted with Stampin' Dimensionals. I added three embellishments Silver Metallic Thread, Faceted Dots, and Rhinestone Basic Jewels. NOW, check out that cool "texture" on my piggie! When you color with the Stampin' Blends you can then take a textured piece of fabric, like a towel and dampen it with a little alcohol (of your choice, hahaha) and dab it lightly to create the effect.  Neat, right?!

This one is pretty straight forward layers and a "fussy cut (read: Brother ScanNCut)" piggy. He is the cutest  happy dancing guy! I colored him with Stampin' Blends and stuck a Rhinestone Basic Jewel in the flower. Sweet and Simple. 
That piggy with the flower made me so happy I used him again!. Piggy number one is stamped flat on the card front and my happy piggy was fussy cut and placed with Stampin' Dimensionals

I saved this one for last, because honestly it is kinda my favorite. Not only for the saying: She Believed She Could.... So She Did. the last part stamped on the inside. The second reason is because I got to use Wobbles! They are a cute little gadget that makes my pig do exactly what it says....WOBBLE or FLY in this case.  

for stopping by.
Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

Pals Blog Hop October 2018 "Wicked Folds"

Welcome to the Pals October, 2018 Blog Hop. 
It’s a spooky time of year so watch out for “Wicked Folds” 
while you hop from blog to blog. We promise not to be too scary.

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Say Hello to This Little Piggy!

Doesn't look much like a wicked fold does it?  
Well it is!  
Technically it is called a 
peek-a-boo card.

 I totally have to work on my video skills!  Here is where I got my idea from:

I cut and scored my paper like this:

I will admit I found the first try to be time consuming! 
And I did get just a tiny bit frustrated, but the end result was gratifying.
 I will definitely be doing one again now that I know I can! 

Today's stamp set is This Little Piggy. The base of card is all Whisper White Thick Cardstock. That is my "go to" as I prefer a card with some substance. The ring on the front is Granny Apple Green Cardstock. It was created by making a circle using the 2 1/2 Inch Circle Punch and the scalloped Layering Circle Dies on the outside of it. I also used this punch to cut the circles in the base of the card.  The little tag on the inside was done with a retired Stampin' Up! punch. My Piggys were colored using Stampin' Blends. The large green areas were created with Tim Holtz Distressed Oxides. 

Now it’s time to use the Blog Hop Line-up below to see what the rest of my Pals have created to inspire you.. Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations.

Mark your calendars for Wednesday, November 14, 2018 for the next Pals Blog Hop. November is time for “Anything But a Card” where the Pals will feature creations suitable for holiday gifting. Don’t miss the fun.
