Artful Inkables Blog Hop take TWO

good MORNING!!

ahhhhh mondays! it was a ROUGH weekend around here so i am kinda GLAD to see monday hahhahah!! i DID get to see my oldest on his trek from south carolina to new hampshire. he looks good though taller if that is even possible. i got to meet the girlfriend – i like her so far. she was very nervous and on good behavior – i think that’s a good sign. hahha! they only stayed briefly which sucked but i hope to get them here for a decent visit soon.

*edited to add* apparently most of my first post completely disappeared so i hope you will re-visit it for the missing info….


My first Cricut Class over on Color Me Creative is set to begin on Friday!!  it is a short BASIC course geared towards anyone who HAS a cricut but it has not made it out of the box or at least not made it far.  this class will take all of the intimidation out of the machine, it’s many uttons and those crazy handbooks!

we are  og hopping today for the new release of Artful INKables stamp sets.  i got to work with TWO new sets – Bugs & Blossoms Mandalas and Happy Everything (mini set).  i LOVE them both – artful inkables has an adorable whimsical style i just adore!  i decided to do a 2 page LO of Pezza and her first ice cream cone!

I used the stamps in the Bugs and Blossoms Mandala set to create my own patterned paper.  I stamped the two larger images randomly on white cardstock with versamark and then embossed in white.  next i misted well with several colors of shimmering mists and let dry.  Finally i stamped the three smaller images randomly with black memento ink and damson plum nick bantock ink.  i edged both pieces with damson plum as well.

I used the Happy Everything for my title and stamped Happy Days then colored it in with copics.

the larger picture has a digi circle frame and some wording i typed onto it before printing.

and NOW that you all can read my post be sure to leave a comment as someone’s blog will be chosen to pick a winner from.  then continue on the hop to see the other fabby things the DTs have done and leave them some love too!  your next stop is michelle.  if you tumbled in on accident and want to start at the beginning head on over to see Kristin!

Now i must get back to work!  (or play as my hubby calls it :P)  mountains of laundry IS loads of fun right?

big hugs!

better blog siggy
