Episode 54 - Shabby Chic Box

Hi everyone, I hope you are having a great Monday :) I have a new video up showing a box I decorated over the weekend... I am really happy with the way this box turned out! It is the first project like this I have ever attempted and I think I am addicted :) I started this box about 2 days ago and filmed most of the entire process, about an hour an a half. But when I went to edit the video my computer and camera could not read the file :( My dad seems to think my SD card had a corrupt file in it causing my camera to not be able to write the video properly so an hour an a half down the drain :( So I filmed the finished box and I tried to explain what I did :)

Here are the pictures of the completed project :)

I hope you enjoy and as always have a great day and Happy Crafting!

P.S. Sorry the video is a little jumpy, I have been having editing issues, this video has taken me the entire weekend to edit, edit and re-edit lol, so I am just getting a chance to post it :)

Ok so I had planned on posting this video last night, but youtube was running really slow so I didn't get a chance to get it up... but I just got it posted :) Hope you enjoy, also my camera battery decided to die right as I was getting ready to show the mini album so I have a picture with audio. I recorded the audio with my iPod, lol big mistake! It makes me sound like I have a major lisp so please ignore that :) As always have and great and Happy Crafting!

Episode 52 - Haul Time :)

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a great day. I have a new video up today, a haul video. Today I went to Michael's and Big Lots and O.M.Gosh!!! Big Lots had so many items today it was really insane, I was really in a crafting coma lol, so many Stamps everywhere!!! I got 5 stamps and I was so wanting more lol, but I was trying to be good and not spend too much (oh but at $2 ea. why didn't I get more???).

Ok, Ok enough rambling lol :) Here is the haul video, enjoy and as always Happy Crafting!

New Custom Stamp :)

Hi Everyone! Hope you had a wonderful Friday. I wanted to share some pictures with you of my custom stamp I got for all the back of all of my cards/projects. I ordered this stamp from Etsy. The sellers name is "MyCustomStamps"... The process was very easy and they were so nice to write and they made sure to get every detail correct. The stamp I purchased was only $6.95 and that is a deal, I was looking into it before and they ranged anywhere from $20-$30 from other websites. The shipping was fast and I am very pleased with this stamp! I wanted to share with all of you who may be looking to buy a custom stamp or maybe never thought of it before :)

Non-Crafty Update

Not to sadden anyone but I wanted to share with you about my week. My sisters cat had to be put to sleep Thursday... It was a sad day for all of us. Late Saturday Night he had started acting funny and just seemed very tired and listless. My sister and I took him to the vet on Monday and was told he had a blockage in his bladder, after three days they decided the best thing to do was to put him to sleep. You know the saying "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade" well sometimes there just isn't enough sugar to make it go down easy. He was a well loved cat and will be missed.

Peachy Keen Challenge Entry :)

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a great day :) Today I made a card for the Peachy Keen Challenge 55...

I really love the sketch for this challenge and I had a blast making the card. I used the PK-493 Funshine Face Parts, this is such a cute stamp set! The paper used was Comsmo Cricket 6"x6" "Honey Pie" pad, and all of the cuts came from my brand new Sugar and Spice Cricut Lite Cartridge. OK well off for some more crafting for me :) Have a great day and Happy Crafting!
