Hey Everyone. I had gotten a number of digis that I still have not used up so I decided to give some a try so that I can add them to a card. Today, I am using one from Saturated Canary. Before she closed her online shop. She still has an etsy shop so grab some from there before she closes that at the end of the year.


I used a slightly different skin color set then I usually use (E55,53,51,50, R30) but I did like how it came out.

Halloween Tag

So we have a tradition here of "Booing" each other and leaving a little something for a friend near Halloween time.  So I decided to use a stamp I had from a retired collection in order to make a tag to put on my bag.  How I miss these stamps image and was so happy to see this artist start back up with CC Designs since I just love this artist style. 



Anyway, I colored the image with my Copics as usual. The paper is from my stash and I got some clearance stickers at AC Moore that I added.

Hope you like it.

Greeting Farm Card

This is what happens when I go through my stamp boxes. I try to declutter every 3 months but sometimes it just results in me getting distracted and excited to find the old stamps I forgot I had lol. I stamped up a bunch of Greeting Farm stamps. 

I colored this one up with my Copics. I often get asked do I pick paper first or color and 90% of the time I color first and then find paper to match which is what I did this time.

13th Birthday Card

I am still in shock that I am officially a parent of a teenager.  She is my one of my greatest joys even when she is telling me "Come on Mom, go away!!!!"  She has always been a creative soul so she appreciates my projects so I decided to make her this card.

I have been subscribing to the Kit & Clowder Art Classes so this month's class was just perfect for using for her card.  I have also had this digital stamp from SOG in my stash for awhile so thought it would be good to finally color it up. I have another one I am working on for a dear friend of mine 40th so hope to show that one soon.

Folio Notebook Holder

So I saw this awesome and pretty easy Folio Notebook Holder on YouTube by CherishUrmemories that I decided to do last night. The album is 10x7.  I received some papers and embellishments in a swap and decided to use them to create the outer cover.


'
On the inside, I have two mini notebooks that I covered with some Crafts & Me images. On the bottom I created a pocket for business cards and then a mini-waterfall effect and added another colored image I did from Crafts & Me. 

The other side is bare because I still need to get a notepad to put into it. Off to Walmart I go.

Here is a close up of the two images I colored up with my Copics.
