Magnolia Pink Green and Blue Challenge

This is the card I made for the Pink Green and Blue Challenge at  http://magnolia-liciouschallengeblog.blogspot.com/.  I bought a silver snowflake at the Dollar Store, 10 in a box for a dollar, what a deal!  Using my Copic airbrush compressor and Copic Sketch RV06 I changed the color of the snowflake to pink.  It turned out great!  I used crepe ribbon from our store http://www.shop.scrapologyaz.com/.  The Magnolia stamp is called "All Wrapped Up Tilda".  This is one of my favortie Tilda Stamps.

So here is my Copic marker recipe
Hair: E29, E17, E13 and Y32
Skin:  E21, E00, E000 and the cheek bluse is R83  
The Blues I used are:  B02, B01, B0000
and the Pinks are:  RV06, RV04, RV02 and RV0000. And I just had to add a bit more bling so I decorated the pink bow with Pink Stickles. 

This is probably the last card I will be making before Christmas so....Merry Christmas to all of you and Blessings on your family for a Wonderful Christmas.  I hope you all get Copics and Maggies in your stockings!

Cookie Boxes with Tilda

I am working on Cookie Boxes as gifts for my neighbors this year.  Here is one that I have finished.  The Tilda is a Magnolia Stamp (you can find it in my store at http://www.shop.scrapologyaz.com/) called Tilda with gifts.

I colored the Tilda with Copic markers.  If you love the idea of a Copic Marker Club where you do not have to out lay a lot of money at one time check out the store blog at http://www.scrapologyaz.com/ and you can read what we have to offer starting in January, but sign ups are already beginning and will end December 15,2010..

I think they are going to make sweet gifts once filled with homemade cookies don't you?  Oh I should have posted that I cut the cookie boxes with my Klic N Kut and this is a pattern that was traced from a Martha Stewart Cookie box about three years ago.

I took pictures of the copics I used to color this image it is easier for me so consider this the "cheater" recipe

Tulle Tilda Christmas Card

I made my first Christmas card this year.  I am actually making it to post to my store's blog in December but decided to sneak peak it here.

I used a Magnolia stamp #210 Tulle Skirt Tilda.  I placed her on a Spellbindercircle and popped it all up on pop dots.  I used a Spellbinder snow flake and an American craft jewel brad.  I colored Tilda withcopics and used Stickles to add bling.  The cardstock I choose is Bazzil Bling Diamond and it is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  Glass glitter is used to add some sparkle and the font for "dreaming of a white Christmas" is called Kingsthings.

New Cards with Magnolia Tilda Stamps

These are the first Tilda Stamps I have used and I love them.  It is so much fun to color and blend them.  I used Momento Ink, and the Xpress Blending Card. 

The Fall Card is made with the Bon Voyage Tilda and the Sign post and Suitcase that goes with that theme. I used Copic markers to color with.  I also used the colorless blender solution on a piece of denim fabric to make her jeans look more "worn."  I was not going to post either of these cards so I did not save the "receipe, but I decided it was time to jump out of my box and post.

The second Tilda card is made with Jam Tilda.  I loved the card that Tina made with the green skin tone so I wanted to try it on this Stair Step card.  I think she turned out adorable.  It is so much fun to take a Summer stamp and turn it into a totally different Season.

I use a Kilc N Kut cutter so I made cutter files of both the stamps, then stamped both stamps on the cut pieces (this saves me hand cutting) .  I cut the pumpkin, fence and trees on my cutter and a friend gave me the spiders.  I think the large spider she cut on the Cricut and the small ones were purchased. For the green skin I used Copic YG07, YG06, YG03, YG0000.    I also used black and orage Stickles to bling it up a bit.  Let me know what you think.

New Prima Products

I have been challenged by my friend, to actually cut (gasp) paper and do a 3D layout. Wow this has been a challenge. I finally did it....even though it took me a week to arrange and rearrange and be happy with the results. Oh...did I say I had limited products to work with....Aren't they pretty? This is from the new Prima Fall line. I am loving the shabby look.

Digi Time Again

I have time on my hands and I am getting bored.  What a great time to catch up Chloe's Albums.  I have a few more layouts to do for 2000 then that year is complete.    I am not that far behind as I have been scrapping here and there every year.  I might get all caught up this week if I work really hard, through 2007.

Florida July 2010

We went to Orlando, Florida this year for our vacation.  It was also Phil and my 20th anniversary.  Not exactly the 20th we dreamed of...but because of the upheavel in Greece, where we went for our honeymoon, and the upheavel with my brother's run away bride and cancellation of their wedding...we made the best of it!  We had a blast...forget the "FUN" parks...there is so much to do in the Orlando area, and the beaches were very clean and beautiful.  We went to Epcot and that was the only "Disney" park we went to.  Chloe, Phil and I really enjoyed Kennedy Space Center (layout yet to design). This is my first layout of our vacation, and it is of our day at Cocoa Beach.  It was a perfect family day.

Spring Is Here

In March when Chloe and I walked to school one morning we saw this beautiful bed of flowers.  Chloe could not help herself and sat down in the middle of them.  Lucky me I had my cell phone and snapped these pictures.

Here are Chloe's Valentines for School.  Didn't they turn out cute?  They hold a full size candy bar.  I used My Mind's Eye paper that I just love.  And this is another card I made using the same paper for her teacher.

Doodle Dragon Studio Challenge #2

Challenge # 2 is to use a sketch and build a card with this sketch as inspiration.  Here is the sketch and then my challenge card:
The card stock is Bazzill and the patterened paper is My Mind's Eye - be loved. I just love this double sided paper.  It is not the traditional pink, white and red of Valentine's, but it works for me.  A little Crystal Stickles on the wings and yellow on the crown for bling, along with Dew Drops for embellishments.  The font for Be My Valentine is Festival Flourish.  I used Copics to color Dustin's digi stamp.  Thank you Dustin!

Okay this may not interest most of you but I thought I would throw it out there .
Yesterday we had to drive over to Surprise and on the way back we were taking to Chloe about how families us to just get into the car on Sunday's after church and just take  family drive.  Thus the term "Out for a Sunday Drive", or Sunday Driver".
I remembered reading an article on the internet of a part of Phoenix called the Harmony district where thousands of Chickens, Guinea Fowl, and Peacocks just roam freely around the area or 32nd Street and 40th Street and Indian School and Thomas.  Since we had nothing else really planned for the day we decided to check this out and see if we could find this area of town and the fowl.  We did and it was really funny.  We found the largest amount off of 36th and Flower.  There is small park on Flower and Cherry Lane and they were hiding in the bushes everywhere and when we slowed to see them they came running across the street to see US!  We had some fried potatoes left over from our breakfast that  I was taking home to our dog but Chloe started throwing them out (Chickens eat anything!) and they came from everywhere!

They are called the Heritage Chickens and are actually protected by the City of Phoenix and this neighborhood.  If you look around the homes people put out bowls of water for them.  There is even a Caution Chicken Crossing Sign.

I made this card today from a Dustin Pike digi stamp that he gave away for free.   I absolutely love his designs and even though I have used many of them, and bought many, I have never posted a card on his site.  This will be my first card in his first challenge Love/Valentine.   I think this is so cute I just might give it to my sweet hubby, who puts up with my scrapping addiction.
