Double duty today!

hi all!

i have been extra productive lately as i am wearing MANY hats at the moment ACK!!  trying not to get over stressed & over tired as poor hubby is already there!  only wednesday and we need a weekend again already!  heee heee!

we have been trying to convince pez to sleep in – like until 6 at least – but she is having NONE of it!


Have you gotten your subscription in for the NEW mini magazine Through the Craft Room Door? They have really been pouring in and i am excited about the things i have been working on for the first issue and the introduction of the exclusive website! you can get all of the info >>HERE<<


IN ADDITION to the magazine Suzanne Dean has started a private online classroom called Color Me Creative and is offering some insanely extensive copics classes. if you want to learn the basics or your looking to become an expert there is a class for you and everything in between.

i have TWO things to post for you today!  the first is for the Just Buggin Challenge that starts today – Challenge 28 is St Pat’s!  i decided to pull out my Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge and used a sketch from Page Maps:

i used a little studio g stamp for the shamrock clusters.  on the background i stamped with versamark.  on the darker strip i stamped with versamark, covered with heat n stick powder, heated it up and then covered them with studio G fine glitter – GORGEOUS and OH SO AFFORDABLE!  i have them in stock now and you get 24 little pots of colors for $6!!!!  the dark strip is punched with an EK Success border punch on both sides.

Rather thna cut out the little leprachaun paper doll i decided to just use 2 of his accessories as my focal point.  i knew i wanted them 3″ so i had to be sure an d hit the Real Dial Size button – otherwise they would hve been cut the size needed for a 3″ paper doll which would have been too small.

i inked the edges of the hat and usedViva Decor glitter liners in gold and hematite to accent both pieces.  i LOVE the dimension of these – not flat like usual!

i thought this little message was sweet – it is also a studio G stamp – LOVE these things!  i am NEVER without the perfect stamp no matter what i am doing!

i am going to send this to my mom i think 🙂

my next project is ALSO for a challenge!  I am sponsoring the Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge this week and the prize is a $15 gift certificate to my store!  SO if you need those studio G items mentioned above or some other fun items be sure to enter the challenge for a chance to win!

here is my take on it – Clean & Simple:

the primas are from my stash & have been there for ages!  then i used a couple Martha Stewart punches and gave the whole thing a generous dose of Vanilla Breeze Smooch Spritz for MASSIVE sparkle!  (You can get 8 for the price of 7 right now at SCACD!)

Last i added a whole bunch of fun Yellow pearls using a Viva Decor Pearl Pen.  LOVE THESE!

today is laundry and house clean up day (did you hear that????  my hubby just breathed a sigh of relief!!!)

i have been filming videos and will have several fun new things to show you PLUS the SCACD new release on friday so be sure you don’t miss a day!!!!!!
