If you have those cheap Michael's $1.50 stamps, I highly recommend using the "Brilliance" inks because the ink doesn't bead...it makes a very crisp image. Very happy with the outcome, was starting to worry I would have to put those lil stamps aside for my versamark ink. I also, wanted to let you know that I got that little bunny stamp from "Carousel Rubberstamp store", it is a nice little hangout. It is the only place near me that sells them I think...Photo Memories might but I haven't been there in ages.

: Aloe Weave Cardstock, white flat cardstock, and Dark Chocolate flat cardstock. I found some dewdrop Brilliance inks, and also this cute little stamp...this is a stamped image and not the actual stamp...lol! Gotta work on the coloring of this guy! I also found a beautiful stamp that I have ordered in, can't wait to get it and use it...just beautiful!

My home has 4 big brick arch windows on the front of the house, and each archway has a window box to plant flowers in it. Needing ideas for a few more pretty bright colored flowers....

Saturday night, I went to Julie's house to make cards...to have some mommy chat, and also to have down time from the everyday life of a stay at home mom. We had a lot of fun, there were only 2 of us there...plus, Julie...but we still seemed to have a lot of fun and no shortage of things to talk about. Thanks again Julie for the night out :D!
This next card I made using the "Bold Butterfly" stamp set, and the "Best Blossom" stamp set. I also used a mini stamp from the Michael's $1.50 collection, and used the " Graphite Black "Brilliance ink". I must say that ink is the best ink I have used with the clear acryllic stamps, it gives you the clear crisp image you would get with wood mounted stamps. I have a bridal shower to goto next weekend, and came up with this card design...which I will use again for sure!

Thank you so much for entering the contest challenge, you all made such beautiful box/bags :)! I lined up all the pictures of each of your projects, and had my 5 year old son pick out the one he liked best...don't worry he is a pretty good judge when it comes to craft projects. Okay, sooooo the winner of this first blog challenge that my son chose is.... Julie!
Congrats Julie, and there will be another contest next month :D so keep your eyes peeled.

I know, I know...you just finnished doing a challenge for some blog candy for me but I found this really great challenge and a great gift idea :)! Just wanting to keep you on your toes, and not let those ink pads dry or your cardstock's get forgotten :p! I cased this over at Jennifer Reeve's blog called "Inking Along", here is her blog addy so you can go take a peek and then do this challenge:
http://www.inkingalong.blogspot.com/. I will definitely be doing this one, just have to get the right paper for the job which means a trip over to "Photo Memories" store tomorrow after I get my hair cut. This store is expensive but I think for this project it needs some pretty special fun paper, and that is where I think I will find some :)!
Yes, I did say get my hair cut...see it is down to my shoulders now, it is naturally curly on humid days and naturally frizzy for all the rest :p! My 5 mos. old daughter is feeling the need to make me bald fast, so I am getting it chopped off..not sure how I want it done yet but hoping that I will get something I like. I am nervous though...what if I come out looking like a flower or a french poodle :p??? Gack, can't have that!!!
Posted by maiahs_momma at 10:29 AM
Okay, today is a better day...or I should say I had a better start to today :D! I have to make 2 cards today, one is for a friend of my son who is having a bday this weekend and the other one is for a wedding shower. I have 2 sort of ideas in my head for the two cards :)! The first card is for a 5 year old boy, I am planning on using my mini stamps I got from Michaels and use the little frog that is one set of stamps I got. Stamp the frog on as a background design, then have a plane (Cuttlebug) that will be flying through the air with "Happy Birthday" trailing behind the plane :)! Now, for the shower card...hmmm...I also have mini Michael's stamps that I plan on using as well, just don't have a layout planned for this card yet. Looks like this will be my mini stamp day especially since I didn't get to them the other night. Will post pics later!

Blog Contest almost over, just one more night to create!! I only have 2 people so far who have entered with a picture...would like more people to try it :D!

I am having one of those days that I should have stayed in bed, just because from the time I got out of bed from the time I got home at lunch time was a no good very bad day. I had to take my car into the garage this morning to get the CV joint, a tie rod, a bushing, and something else fixed too. My car would make a funny clicking/clunking noise when I would go around any sort of turn, it all started after I had my car accident on Oct.31...the dealer I took it to said it couldn't possibly be due to the accident. Well, to make a long story short the dealer did a shotty job on the car repairs...the garage I took my car to today said that the CV joint most likely was broken in the accident but they don't know for sure. My daughter (she's 5 mos) exploded just before I went in to the garage to drop off the key, she had poop up to her ears...good thing I restocked my wipe container this morning. I think she has another hole I don't know about, that just appears every now and again...it is up near the middle of her back :p! The garage people kept calling me telling me what else had to be fixed, or they found out they didn't have to fix something..that they would or wouldn't have to keep the car. Either way as of right now, my car is fixed...it shouldn't make noises :D! Bad news is the bill, lol! I soooo have to convince my hubby to ditch this thing, it is done...it has had a good life...we need something a bit bigger than what we have. We drive a Honda CRV, we can fit 3 car seats in there but I am forever wrestling with one or two carseats...time for a new to me one is what I say :)!
I am going to try, key word try to be creative tonight...I am going to break out more of my mini stamps and try to create something else new and exciting. Or I hope that when I get to my mail box that there will be 1-2 stamp sets there waiting for me to try :D!

This is a challenge that I got from Beate's site, here's this challenges link for you: http://beate.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/2007/05/18/my-challenge-card-and-a-sketch-challenge-for-you/
I used some scraps of patterned paper that I had, that needed to get used up :)! I also used the scalloped circle that I got from a contest I entered on Tracy Houghtons blog site, and then I added the flower stamped image using the SU set called "Definitely Decorative Daisy" set. I would like to challenge you to try a new technique or challenge on someone's blog and have fun with it, you never know what you might find. I will be back on here for a challenge for you all to try that I found on someone's site :)! Enjoy!

I tried out a SCS challenge last night, it was a challenge to break out any little mini stamps that you had and incorporate them into a card. I chose some stamps I had gotten at Michael's (the $1.50 ones), and I used a set that had 3 little flowers together believe it came from the set with "Girlfriends" in it. I stamped 5 of these set of 3 flowers in a row, then I stamped 3 more flower sets and cut them out. Next, I took those set of 3 that I had cut out and put a glue dot on them so it would pop off the page. I then added some blue sky around the flowers using my "Pebbles" Chalk set, and I also used the green chalk from the same set and made grass. I then glues the flowers onto a pink (Blush linen cardstock that I got from "Carousel Rubberstamps"), then attached the pink cardstock onto a piece of scrap blue cardstock that I had measured out. I guess you would call it the "layered" look :P! I had some "Embossed Box of Cards" by DCWV, that I had picked up at Michaels and hadn't decided what to do with these cards and so I decided that this was the time to use them. I used the card from the section titled "Flower Patch", and colored the flowers, by brushing my dew drop Versamagic Malted Mauve ink pad over the card. What an effect it gave the card, really neat...will have to keep doing this technique (old technique I know, but new to me). I then attached the layerd blue, pink and flower stamped paper onto the flower embossed card, then I attached a tag I had made using my SU tag punches and on the tag I stamped "Get Well Soon". I then had to decide what I wanted to attach the tag with, so I finally decided on a pink large brad and stamped some flower images from the SU set called "Polka Dots and Petals". And voila!
I don't have the picture for this card yet, will put it up as soon as I figure out how to make my scanner behave :)! Can't wait to show you the picture of this card!!
Have a great long weekend, for those of you who live in Canada :D!

*sigh!* The other day I posted that I had Michael's put some rubber stamps on hold for me (4 rubber stamps to be exact), this Michael's I am talking about right now is about 1 hour away or so away from me. I drove in there this morning because it is going to rain tomorrow, and I didn't want to drag 2 out of 3 kids in and out of the car in the rain (hard enough to do on a good sunny day). We got there, I went up to the cash and asked the cashier there...she got them out! I nearly lost it, nearly got angry, nearly threw a fit, nearly pulled my hair out...nearly threw them at the lady. The stamps they had saved were inkadinkado clear stamps, not even close to the one's I had asked for or explained in detail over the phone. I asked them if they had the clear rubber stamps by Studio G and they are like $1.50 a pack, 4 or so in a pack. The lady said they did, over there and pointed to my right...no explaination past that. I asked again where on the right, she said over there, I am still not seeing them...then a man came over and said I looked lost and if I needed help, I told him what I was looking for...too bad for me he doesn't know a lot of english or if he does he didn't seem to understand what I was saying. He found them for me, I got 8 sets of the pink Michaels clear stamps and 4 of the mounts! I went up to the cash, I told the lady there that I wasn't going to get those big stamps because that is not what I was looking for. She said "Oh, they weren't??" I said not even close to what I am looking for!! They are lucky they had some, or I think I might have asked for the manager or something!! Anyways, enough of my ranting/venting...anyone know how many pink sets there are in total?? I thank Kim and Julie to alerting me to the recent shipment of those stamps :D, they are nice one's :)!

This is what I use to watercolor :), I learned this technique from the staff of Carousel Rubber stamp store and am I glad I did learn it :)! I use the "Crayola markers", I draw on a piece of plastic of the color I want to paint with...then I use a small paint brush and a little bit of water. I run the paint brush across the ink on the plastic so it will pick up the ink, next I paint the stamped image. It is easy, it is cheaper than using actual watercolors, and it is sort of a fun twist to watercolor painting :D! Give it a try and let me know how it works for you :)!

Grrrr, I specifically called both our Michael's outfits in my area 2 days ago...they both said they didn't carry those "Must have" $1.50 clear stamps. They also didn't know what I was talking about, then I get a call from Julie (thanks Julie) saying they just got a shipment in last night. If only I could get through the phone lines like in the movie "Ghost Dad"!!! Well anyways, I managed to call this morning and had them put some on hold for me...good thing I live in a place no one can pronounce and it sounds like it is far away :)! Because if I didn't they wouldn't have saved some for me!!
Posted by maiahs_momma at 5:26 PM
This time instead of using what I usually use to stick pictures on my scrapbooking pages (Fiskars White Acid-free Stickers), I used Photo Mounting corners. I used them on my DH (darling husbands) grandmother's photo wallet, because I thought she would like to have to choice of what photo's to put in her album. I am starting to wish that I did the other 2 albums that way, because it turned out better I think...or it looked better. I will let you know what they think when they get them as to which type they preferred!! I will post a picture of the second album later once I get my film developed...I know, I know, I NEED a digital camera!!
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all you mother's out there, you are great women :) and hugs to you all :)!

Sorry for the poor picture quality, thank my scanner for that....I soooooo need to get a digital camera!! Anyways, this is my first photo wallet and it is for my mother in law...shhhhhh,lol, to all you family members of my extended family :)!
Here is the inside of this same photo wallet!Oh boy looks like I need to make this picture a bit bigger...oh darn it all!! Sorry agian :(!

Here are the instructions that I found to do a "Simplified Photo Wallet" and it was done by Kim Wilson and I found it on www.splitcoaststampers.com website :). According to several posts it was first presented at Leadership 2007 by Stampin' Up! You can also see many other versions of the photo wallet on the "Splitcoast" website that I have posted above. This is a smaller verison and it uses the measurements provided by Connie Stewart, but with simplified fold out panels. Apparently there is still room for 9 photos or journaling panels, but this is easier to make and uses less cardstock too :)!
- Stamp sets (they used Office Accoutrements Stamp set)
- Versamark, Marigold Morning, Rose Red inks (you don't have to use these color inks)
- Brads of any colors (they used Turquoise brads, spiral punch, scissors and adhesive)
- Cardstock: use any color you'd like (they used Marigold Morning): 4" by 11", score at 1 3/4, 2,5,8
- 3 inside panels (they used Old Olive, Rose Red, Temp. Turqoise) 7 1/2" by 2 3/4", score in half at 3 3/4
- Belly band (any coordinating color): 8" by 1"
- Journaling blocks-Whisper White (They used 3 panels): 3 1/2" by 2 1/2"
Adhere inside panels (once you have decorated the outside to your liking), alternate directions. Fold up wallet. Fold belly band around wallet. Slide off. Punch 1/16" hold through both front layers. . Decorate belly band any way you would like :)! Have fun!
I am making 3-4 of these wonderful wallets for my mother, my mother in law, and my hubbies grandmother...for the first two it is for Mother's Day and for Nanny it is for her Birthday plus Mother's Day :)! I will post my creations later, once I get them done..I have to create them tonight when my kiddies are asleep :)!

What a beautiful warm sunny day :)! Had another playdate set up with some mom's, had some yummy chocolate cake to celebrate Jamie's Birthday. This afternoon I had some errands to run, so that I would have a gift for my mom, my mother in law and my DH (darling husbands) grandmother for mother's day gifts for the first two and a bday gift for Nanny. I was in Staples, and I was over at the cash paying when I saw these great magnetic tins for storing things in (like embellishments). The tins didn't come with the magnetic board for them to go on, but am sure it is easy to make or find one. $1.99 each for these tins. Will post a picture later of the one's I actually did get! Okay, next I went to Michael's...again as I was paying I looked up to see the cashier putting what I had gotten in a nice canvas bag that has "Michaels" written on the side...giving them away. Get there fast if you are interested, or call first...but then again they probably won't know what they are talking about :p!! Not to be negative towards Michaels but this has been my experience with them....not knowing a thing about anything, how frustrating is that!!
I asked the lovely staff there about those "G Studio" rubber stamps ( they used to have them)...now no one knows what I am talking about. I asked them if there was some way to get this product or other products in they don't carry, to my surprise they said yes. They wrote down all the info I had about them, and said if enough people called in or came in and requested it they would get them in. Lol, now time to make supper!!

Tonight I will continue to play with that DD set I have, and also I have 2 new toys and a new stamp set to try out. I got the Polka Dots and Petals set, and also the two tag punches :D from the spring mini 2007 catalogue :)! Might have to do some blog candy to see what people can come up with using this set :)! Keep you posted :D!

This is just a quick post for now, heading out the door to a play date with some other friends since it is going to be a fantastic day :)! I found yet another fun tool that I have, that can make the same cuts as the SU corner ticket punch. This fun tool I haven't had the chance to really play with until the other day I saw it in one of my containers of stamping stuff. Then I thought to myself wow, I don't need that ticket punch, especially since I have this great tool :D! I tried it a few minutes ago, and it works really really well!! I am really looking forward to using this in other great projects...
Well, I am off...but hope to have a project or two up on here today or tonight so come back please and enjoy :)!

Wow, what a beautiful day :)! Too nice to be inside that is for sure, we didn't get home until about 4:30 p.m. because we were out enjoying the day...that and running errands. This morning was pre-school for my oldest, he had a fun time because it has been awhile since he has seen his "girlfriend". Once I dropped him off there, my other two children and I went for a walk in the local park called "Shubie Park" where we got to see ducks, dogs, little birds, squirrels scurrying about. Where'd the time go...it just flew by, back we went to pick up my son at Pre-school!! We went to Grandma's house for lunch, then she watched my middle child, while the other two came with me to get their needles updated. Oh what fun that was!!!! My oldest screamed like he was about to be murdered, and cried for a few minutes afterwards..poor guy, had to get a needle in both arms. The needles have put him to bed for the night, as soon as we got home he has been asleep in his bed...which is good because I can't carry him anymore! My dd had her needles and is going strong here next to me...oh wait a second, she is slowly getting sleepy...eyes are closing :D! Out, that's 2 down and one to go :P!! I also had my dd, in to see the dr. because of a rash on her chin/cheeks :(! It looks like she has ecema (how ever you spell that), it looks really bad this afternoon. My dr. just did a quick passing glance, not a good inspection of it...and just told me to keep it moisturized...this frustrated me...so I am now in search of a new family dr. Ugh! I think he was having an off kinda day! After the dr. appointment, I drove and got my other son at my mom's place...then we drove home to have supper which I really didn't want to make. I also didn't want to have left overs that needed to be eaten, but that's what I did...I heated them up for me...and made a grilled cheese sandwhich for Ethan.
Anyways, once I get the #3 off to sleep I am going to play around a bit with some stamps or I hope to :)!

Sorry, that one piece of ribbon isn't straight! Anyways, these two beautiful ribbons I got from Michaels a week or two ago. They are called "French Garden", there is 4 ft of ribbon on each of the spools and are like $2.99 each. Had to share, since I figured there are more people out there who are addicted to ribbon like Julie :)!
Also, in my last post with the movies I forgot to add Charlene's blog addy...so here we are:http://charlyscrazycorner.blogspot.com/. congrats on getting a blog up and running :D!

I first cut out the navy blue card stock to 3 1/2" by 10 1/2", then I cut out the cream colored cardstock into a square and also the patterned paper ( K I Memories) into a square. Next, I stamped out the pansy image onto cream colored cardstock and colored in the pansy using my "Tomba" markers. I then tied on the "Thanks" Ek success ribbon onto my card, then added the pansy using the mini pop dots. I am looking forward to trying some masking using this pansy stamp, and I may also use some more pop dots but we will see!!

I went there and also heard through the grapevine that there are certain "Canadian colors" of cardstock that Carousel won't be carrying anymore....once it is sold it is gone. So I suggest if you are in need of a certain color hurry out...I like the color "Avacado" and also their "Blush Pink Linen" Cardstock. Just a tid bit I thought I had better pass on!!

Hope everyone is having a great day, our day started out kinda grey but now is a hot sunny late afternoon/early evening. I attempted to make an accordian card, here is the link that I got the directions on how to make it: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/accordian.php
I am pretty happy with how it turned out, please excuse the poor picture quality that my picture has and the ribbon isn't actually not off like it looks like it is in the picture :(....here's the picture.
I think I would make more of the tri-fold cards, and perhaps even save this card for special occasions because you need matte board for it. They suggested using cereal box kind of cardboard, but I think the matte works better! Well, off to find another fun new card to make...happy card making :D! I forgot to mention that I haven't designed the inside yet, because I am waiting on my SU order to come in that has the 2 tag punches and set of stamps too. I am itching to get them :P! I will post a picture once I get it done...
