Hugs for YOU!

Hello Crafty Peeps.

I am here to share one of my last cards as part of the Crafter's Companion team. It has been super fun to be part of this team and I will miss working with such a talented, kind and caring bunch. Thanks CC for all of your generosity; I hope to have made you proud with my creations:0)

 This card is perfect for Anniversary, Valentines, or Just Because I love You. I plan on selling cards at a crafty yard sale that is coming up in January so I am building up on my Valentines Day cards. I think this is a fabulous new addition. I have used Hugs for You from the Humphrey Collection
 I have colored my image using Distressed Inks.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you all have a productive weekend. Happy Holidays!

My EZMagnetic Die Storage System

Hello my crafty friends my post for the Crafter's Companion this week is a bit different.

I would like to share something that I am super excited and absolutely crazy about. Thanks so much Crafter's Companion for coming out with the most perfect die storage system. It is as if they knew what I was looking for.

I have made a video sharing my excitement about the storage system; check it out if you would like to see my view on it.

 Here are direct links to the Crafter's Companion items I talk about in the video:
EZMagnetic Starte Set
EZMagnetic 8.5 x 11-10pk
EZBinder Clear Full-Size Binder
Tabbed Stamp Storage Panels 8.5 x 11 (4pack)

Now here is how I have made it my own. I just love taking it out and flipping through the pages.
Here is a bit of a closer look; I have added my favorite papers and embellishments.
I have added these sparkly letters on the spine.
Here is a closeup of my pretties; under the protective cover.
I was able to put 4 sets of my dies on one sheet.

Thanks for stopping by; I hope you all have a fabulous weekend.

Kenny K Farewell and a TAG

Hello fellow crafters. I will be sharing my last card as a Kenny K Krew Member today. After being part of the team for two terms I am truly going to miss this awesome team. Thanks so much Kenny, Elena, Sussie and Krew! You have been awesome to me:)

The theme this week over at Kenny K's Krafty Krew is:

White & Silver.

{excluding skin & hair}

I have made a tag for my final challenge; and here it is:

Here is a look at the pre-colored Delores D'Ammage image; you can buy this print it and it is ready to mount on your card.
 Or if you are like me and don't have a color printer; printed in black and white and just add some color. I have added a single layer of E000 some blush with R22, R20 lip with R29 and green eye color. It is great how the shading is already done and can be altered to use on any project by adding colors that will coordinate with your DP.
I truly enjoyed making this tag and have a few more pre-colored images to play with:0)

This weeks sponsors are Kenny K's Downloads with 5 digis of winners choice. 
and Marianne Design with a prize package.
I would like to enter this tag into the following challenges:
Drunken Stampers - #108 For the Boys
Fun with Shapes & More - Heart
Totally Papercrafts – For the Boys
Crafty Ribbons -  #34  Tag/label big or small
Catered Crop-Tag You're It

 Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend.
