Sweet little brag book...

Babies make me happy!! Here's a little brag book that I made for a new friend that just became a Grandma. Perfect to put new photos of a sweet little baby in! I went with Chocolate, Pink and Green, there's just somethin' about that color combo that I love - delightful!

Love the pearl embellishments.
Dry embossing - I'm using it on everything!!

A sweet card to match.
Have an amazing weekend and Happy Crafting! Smooches, Amy

Valentine Cricut Swarm ... (continued)

Well, I had such a fabulous experience at the Cricut Swarm today! Fun, Fun, Fun - We made some delightful and inspiring projects. Thanks Brynn for putting everything together. I know it's a ton of work and doll it's top notch and super creative!!
Check out what we crafted ...

I'm not even standing how cute our name tags are!

My jar says 'SMOOCHES' in PINK Vinyl
I'm sure that's a shock! LOVE it!!!

Wild Thing - You make my heart sing. Love the monkeys!!

This next project was part of a challenge. We were given a few hearts, buttons, vellum with words and 6x6 pink paper and you had to make something, anything with them. We had 40 minutes. I LOVE how this layout turned out. Brynn had mentioned that we may have time to do free style projects so I took some pics that I needed to scrap - Et Voila!

Detail Pics ...

Me and Brynn. I'm not even standing how stinkin' cute we look in our pink. We got tickets (for the prize drawings) for each of the pink items we were wearing. Well, I have to confess, I showed the ruffle of my pink panties for a ticket. I'm not competitive AT ALL!! It was tasteful and silly - promise I'm not a perv. Anyway, I WON some fabulous prizes!! All in all an amazing time! Smooches!

Valentine Cricut Swarm ...

I have the amazing honor of joining my 'bestie' Brynn at her Cricut Swarm held at Scraps Galore today. I'm so stinkin' excited!!! There's a Valentine's swap that I've just finished the cards for and I think they came out delightful and very sassy! So sassy in fact that I named her - Babette. French and Sassy - LOVE IT!! The colors in the pic didn't come out as true as they are in person but, you get the idea. I sparkled the heck out of it with shimmer mist - Et Voila!
I'll have more pics of the projects we make today posted later. Off to get crafty ...

Have an amazingly creative day - Smooches!!

So much crafting and posting to do ... So little time!

Hey Smooches Stampers! Welcome to my new blog!!!

I figured since I hadn't posted to my other one in an obscene amount of time I'd just start fresh. I'm going to post a couple of projects that I've worked on in the last couple of months - with not much 'lip' about them - and then once I get back in the groove of things I'll give more details. I hope you're inspired....
Well, this little diddy was in my friend Laura's shop (Willow Creek) it's SOLD though!! YAY!!! It totally encompasses Valentine's for me. It's so stinkin' girlie. I LOVE Valentine's Day!!!
These cute tags are at Willow Creek too but, the supply is dwindling so if you want them be sure to go to her new store opening on February 12th!!! New location: NW corner Eubank and Constitution by the French Bakery.

This cute little box/bag is from a Stamp Camp several months ago but, it had to be included in recent projects because I love it so. We filled it with Tea Bags in coordinating colors. Did you notice the little metal edged tag hanging down like a tea bag tag. Sweet Gift!

Here's a fabulous waterfall card designed by my upline in Stampin' Up - Kathy - She's delightful and SUPER talented!!

You pull the end with the ribbon and it unfolds like a waterfall.

I'm not even standing it's genius!! More Waterfall Cards from my class at the End of January...
LOVE this color combo - Very Rich! I wanted it to be more of a bookmark. If you don't know already - I'm a sucker for fabulous bookmarks!
Another Waterfall from my January class. Most of the ladies hadn't made one of these so it was super fun to watch their sweet faces light up with happiness!
I'm not even standing it!
These next two are once again designed by my upline Kathy - Love her!!

We made this at my up-uplines meeting last week. Thanks Tammy for the inspiration!! Masculine and Fun!! AND Vintage :)

This was my swap for the same meeting. Because you can't see it, I must tell you that this is COVERED in sparkly from Shimmer Mist. That's my favorite addition to every card. It just makes me happy, what can I say, I'm a sparkle girl!!

Here are some cute vintage tags that I made awhile ago but, I loved them so much they had to be added too.
Well, it's not much - but, it's somethin'!! Have an amazing Friday and I'll have more up soon.
