Which way to Celebrate


I love this die set from My Favorite Things (currently out of stock but there are tons of great dies in the OCS store!)   I’m really drawing to colorful cards these days so here’s a quick and easy card I made using the MFT die set. 

Do you love to doodle?  I recently saw doodling as the theme of an online challenge and it reminded me about how I love to doodle!  Do you ever do that?  Get out of the habit of using a technique you love and then remember it and fall in love all over again?!  I used my Uniball white pen…if you don’t own this pen, you should.

Thanks for popping by and taking a look!

supplies: MFT Dies, my favorite TomBow Adhesive, Uniball pen, misc cardstock

Dreaming of Spring

As a last minute favor for Design team member Aaemie I get to post another card this week, and it's a bright spring colored card to finally celebrate the arrival of spring here in Alberta. ( Shhhhh, don't say it too loud, or the winter fairies might just decide to return and share a few more flakes of snow - horror!!! )

This adorable little dragon is taking a well deserved nap and dreaming of all of the pretty flowers soon to arrive. I have colored up Dreamy Dragon from Whimsy Stamps artist Sylvia Zet with my Copics, then added Icicle Stickles to the flowers for that extra shimmer and shine. The image was cut and matted with the Spellbinders Big Scalloped Circles die. Paper flowers are all from my stash of Prima, while the flower centers are either Kaiser rhinestones, pearls made with the Cream Viva Decor Pearl Pen, or cream Kaiser self adhesive pearls.

Birdie Corner Bookmark Tutorial

Hello crafty peeps, today I have a lovely corner bookmark to share with you. I originally saw the idea done by Beate Johns on Splitcoast, I loved it and thought it would a fun tutorial to try and share my take on it.
Start with a 3x3 square, on three of the sides mark the middle points. Then line up the marks and score, repeat connecting the other two marks. 

Fold at your score lines. 

On the un-scored side use a edge die or punch to achieve a decorative edge.

I used spellbinders edge and insert dies, I like to tape them in place to avoid any mess ups. 

Make two die cuts using some of your smallest sizes that will fit on your folded triangle side without hanging over. I'm also using a bird die, you could use a coloured image instead if desired. 

Cut a 2 and 1/8 square and then cut it in half. 

Using design paper make two 3 x 3/4 pieces. 

On the back of the design paper add adhesive and attach some ribbon.

On the back attach one of triangle pieces with adhesive and then one of the other pieces of design paper below it. 

Finally I attached my 2nd triangle piece and then the 2nd design paper piece below it. On top of that I attached my die cuts and placed the bird die as a finishing touch. 

And voila a beautiful bookmark! 

Supplies Used:
~Paper: Authentique(Renew)
~Die Cuts: Stately Circles Nestabilities(Spellbinders),  Classic Scalloped Circles Large Nestabilities(Spellbinders), A2 Bracket Borders One Borderabilities(Spellbinders),  Bird Creatables LR0137(Marianne Designs)

Black and White Wedding

Okay, the procrastinator in me has really been working overtime this past year!!!  My youngest niece was married last June, and as part of her wedding gift I told her that I would do a scrapbook album featuring the big event - fast forward to May of 2013, and I have finally completed not one but a total of three albums - just in time for their first anniversary!!
Since the theme this month here at One Crazy Stamper is black and white plus one other color, I've chosen to show you just a few of the pages from the albums.

The professional photographer produced so many beautiful photos, that it was hard to choose just some of the 2300 that she took.
You still have a couple of weeks left to enter the challenge here at One Crazy Stamper, just click on the icon at the top of this blog for all of the details.

Just a little bit of sunshine!


I recently ordered Simple Stories Summer Fresh paper pack and it is AMAZING!  Both of the squares of paper on my card are from that paper pack. I love that the paper looks paper pieced! It adds layer to my card without actually adding any physical dimension.  And it also has some ready made sentiment strips. I love the patterns of the regular paper in this set also.  Go take a look if you haven’t seen this paper yet!

My stamp is Suspenders Saturated Canary and colored with my copics. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!

Supplies: Simple Stories paper, Saturated Canary, Copic Markers, misc buttons, TH tiny attacher
