Welcome Spring!

Wow! It's been a while since I've posted a new project! I've been focused on my new personal blog, This Is Katie. Check it out if you have some time! I just wanted to post a few things I've been working on lately. I recently discovered the joys of digital scrapbooking. I created this little Happy Easter project:I love that the little chick is looking at us. The frame is one of the many awesome freebies at Just So Scrappy, which I found on Lori's Freebie List. These sites are amazing! The rest was added in Power Point. I am also playing along with the Easter theme at I Love Digi Challenge, Paper Play Challenges, C.R.A.F.T, Dare U 2 Digi Stamp,

I also made a VERY quick little project for a part of my friend's little girl's birthday present. I left it for the last minute so I didn't get to decorate it the way I wanted, but it did get the "how did you get that stuff in there?" response I was hoping for! If you have never made one you should! Easy and fun! Just cut a flap in the plastic 2 liter soda bottle where the label normally would be and then decorate your own paper label and cover the opening. Easy peasy! I am sharing this project at Creative Inspirations for their Anything But A Card challenge. I also wanted to share the awesome package Ann at Ann's Creative Nook sent me for winning one of her challenges. She sent me some brads, buttons, chipboard shapes, and the cutest Luau stamps! I can't wait to use these! If you have not checked out her blog, you should head on over! She always picks great challenges!

Thanks for stopping by!

Of All The Fish In The Sea...

This is another quick card I made recently. As you can tell I love my Cuttleug "Love Heart" die and have used it again this week! I also love my Anya stamps and this mermaid Anya may be one of my favorites! The black stripes are ribbon and I used my favorite Martha Stewart border punch and my cuttlebug circles embossing folder. I used silver ink to give my love heart some sparkle and dimension and some chalks to liven up the mermaid's skin and tail. Hope you all enjoy it!
