A deco with Chaser


deco

THEME: My Silly Kitty
MADE FOR & BY: Me

This picture of Chaser always makes me laugh. That cute lil' furball. I tried to keep it simple using a few deco supplies I bought after work. I used some ribbon, glitter (maybe too much... Is that possible?), alphabet marker stampers, stickers, and confetti.

My entry: I just has to use this when I stumbled upon this at photobucket. I didn't use any tape on this one... Just ribbon, stickers, and cupcake scrapbooking paper. It is a little blurry due to the stickers.

Freebies & Punches


Photobucket

On my last break I headed over to the hardware and took a bunch of these color samples. I need to make another trip, heh. I most grabbed the pinks & purples. But I spent an hour last night with my halloween punches until my hand/arm hurt.

Photobucket

I want to make more of these and send them out to a few of my creative penpals/swappers.

MADE BY: Crystal Lamb

My entry: It took me a long time to find an image that I like out there. Some where just plain cruel~ But I liked the colors on this one. I tried to keep it simple by just using some ribbons, my flower ribbon punch, and flower confetti that I forgot I had. I added neon glitter and sealed it up with my favorite tape.

MAIL ART from Norma



Photobucket

Fat mail alert~! Thank you, Norma for such a huggable package! All I can say is, "wow!" I love everything you sent my way. I wasn't aware you could cram so much into an envelope like that.

Photobucket

Here is the back of the envelope.

Photobucket

Paper heaven, right here.

Photobucket

The glitter flower brads are too cute. Love the ribbon which I plan to use on some decos. And the push pins~ Purple (fave color) stars. ^___^

Photobucket

Super fine glitter~ Love the earth tones which are colors I do not have. Many thanks for that. I cannot resist the colors in the other pack. ^___~ A girl can never have enough glitter.

Photobucket

The stickers are too cute~ The handmade sticker are beautiful and I never seen stickers like the metallic flower/buttery ones. I just had to sneak in your postcards, hehe.

Photobucket

I love this. You make the best postcards. ^_______^ I really need to learn how to use my lil' purple pixie sewing machine. It is still in the box it came in...

Photobucket

A closer look~

Photobucket

Again, thanks so much and I love it all. I cannot wait to be able to do this again. ^____^

Oh my, Studio G at Walmart~


I did some unexpected supply shopping at Wal-Mart when I went to return a shirt. Jamie was talking to a former co-worker so I took off to the craft area, hehe. Stationery was to crowded with all the last minute back to school shoppers... But I found some Studio G goodies~! The mod wasn't all set yet but I was able to find some really cool stuff.

Photobucket

But first, I had two little furry helpers making thing difficult. This is Chaser trying to get Fable out of the way.

Photobucket

Fable thinking he is helping me out by laying on my stuff.

Photobucket

The lil' rubber stamps were to cute to pass up and they even come with an ink pad.

Photobucket

The star was the main reason why I picked this up. But the little vampire was cute too. This comes with a black ink pad.

Photobucket

The spiderweb was what caught my eye and the cute lil' frankenstein reminded me of a penpal of mine. I want to use it on her envelope next time. The ink pad is silver.

Photobucket

I can't get enough of these alpha stamp sets. They come in handy on decos and label bags.

Photobucket

Ah, this one is my favorite~!

Photobucket

I though these were pretty cool too.

Photobucket

I can't wait to use these. ^___~

Photobucket

I also bought these epoxy brads.

Photobucket

A closer look~ Loving the skulls.

Photobucket

I found these cool hole punches too. I want to fill up lil' baggies for my deco swappers.

Photobucket

This one is my favorite. Skull love~

So I hope to keep seeing more Studio G products at Wal-Mart. I'll have to go back and check when they finish putting everything out. I wonder what acrylic stamps they are going to get.

Thanks for stopping by. Now it is time to rush to work.

Label & Stationery Swap


Photobucket

I've been wanting to post these pictures since I sent the labels out. But I was waiting for the stationery to come in so that I could just do one post. Last month I swapped some labels for stationery with Estela in Spain.

Photobucket

I sent her twelve sheets of labels.

Photobucket

Along with a little note that I type so I could use the new font I downloaded. I am still trying to find all the fonts I used to have before my computer died.

Photobucket

Last Friday I got this~ Sadly one of her envelopes was damaged and had to be put in a bag before leaving Spain.

Photobucket

Not sure what is missing but I love what I got. ^_____^ Thank you~

Photobucket

This one was sealed and okay though.

Photobucket

The pen was a little damaged but still works and I love the memo pads.

Photobucket

Love the Diddl pad too.

Thanks, Estela for a great swap. ^____^

Update mail & me


I've been wanting to update but my lazy self keeps winning. Mainly I have just felt drained and so distracted lately. So it is time to focus on my mail again. So I have been doing a little here and there.

Photobucket

I was working on a package for Crystal here using my new border bunch. I am getting the hang of it.

Photobucket

See~ I did this while watching Medium which I am determined to finish before they take it off Netflix. But I want to make a lot and share with my penpals/swappers. ^______^

Photobucket

Ugh, I have even been ignoring my mail & swap journal. I hope to catch up tomorrow but at least mail has been slow coming in.

Photobucket

This is the very recent but I have a few deco swaps to post that arrived as well. But here you can see Kyle's letter that came in last Friday. I had a slam (in blue envie) returned from Flavia in England. And a small note from Carly in Scotland. She moved also and I need to update her on my new addy. Funny thing is that it didn't have an ugly yellow forwarding sticker on it. I think the mail man knows I moved, heh.

Photobucket

I worked on an envie for Sylverhawk this morning. I'll show the rest later when I make another post about it. Sneak peak, hehe.

Photobucket

I even made myself some labels since I have been up since 6am.

So I am determined to get all caught up again. Sorry for the delay if I owe you a letter/swap. Le me know if I owe you something cause I am so forgetful~ It sucks really. I always put things off until my days off but then those days come... And I end up too tired and with no motivation at all. *sighs* So I wait until the next days... So then weeks go by... Grrr, I feel terrible because I feel like I wasted my days off. >__<

The rest of my shopping~


Here is the rest of what I bought last Friday. I am so behind with posting pictures on here that I am about to just give up on posting them, heh.

Photobucket

I bought these while Jamie was getting some information at the pharmacy. I bought this and a birthday card for my dad. I mailed that super late.

Photobucket

The post office was our next stop... I bought these stamps and mailed out some heavy packages. Pictures will come~

Photobucket

I got a few thing at Target~ I love their $1 bin, hehe. I bought some ribbon, list pad (that I use as stationery), and this flower punch that was on clearance. I am still trying to figure it out but I cannot wait to use it on for some deco supplies.

Photobucket

Target also had these cupcake sandwhich bags (to be used as goodie bags), star stickers (been buying anything rainbow lately), and this cute file holder (will be used to hold large decos). That is all~ I still have pictures from a haul like two weeks ago. xD *sighs* Soon I will catch up, lol.
