Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #13

just a quick little post this morning...here is my card for dawn mcvey's raspberry suite color challenge #13. this is the 2nd card i've made that is a 5.5 x 5.5 inch square...it's a little larger than what i normally work with but i think it turned out cute! its nice because you have a little more room to work with larger embellishments, like this butterfly! i created the butterfly outline in adobe illustrator, printed it out and made a chipboard pattern so now i can make butterflies all day long if i want! hope you weekend is fabulous!

miss peacock

the other day, someone found this little kitten following a homeless man down the street in front of my work. the man said he could not take care of it, so it was was brought inside so we could try to find a home for her. the little kitten took a liking to me...i liked her too, but since we already have a momma cat with 3 kittens at home right now i knew i could not bring another one home...but i sure was tempted. this sweet little kitten took naps on my lap all day while i was working. talk about theraputic!
later on in the evening she decided to go tromping around on my desk and sat underneath my computer monitor for a bit. but then she would attack my hand playfully while i used my wacom pen tool. it was too funny. i figure she's probably about 6 weeks old as she is around the same size as my kittens at home.
the great news is that someone wanted this little one and named her miss peacock (because we work at nbc...get it!?) and she has a very loving home now! how great is that?!

Scrapbooking Layouts

i wanted to share a couple of cute scrapbooking layouts i worked on. the photos in them are both old (obviously the one from me cheerleading in high school is old!) and the one from christmas is from 2007...haha they always say in the magazines not to worry if you get behind...just work on what feels good and fun to you!

Anyhow. i thought they both turned out cute! i usually like to use 8x8 books. when i first started scrapbooking i always made 12x12s but now i dont care for them as much. mini books (and 8x8) are my favorite...i'm in the process of finishing one of those up now that i will share when it's done!
that's me coming down from a basket toss in the cheerleading layout. isn't it kinda neat how i used the blurry picture? i just made a fun title to go along with it!

kwerner color inspiration #56

well, i made a card this week for kristina's color inspiration. at first when i saw the colors posted i was not going to participate. sometimes it's hard for me to use soo many colors when i dont have a patterned paper that incorporates a couple of them in it...but nonetheless, i ended up making one tonight. i think it turned out pretty cute. it's a mini:card, measuring 3.5x4.5 inches. my mom bought a million stamps from the used item sale that our local scrapbook store has every few months in my hometown. one weekend when i was visiting her i stamped a bunch of images so i would have them when i got back to kentucky. i came across this cute little ladybug today when i was looking through some of my scrap:crap. hehe! i think its too cute!

supplies: patterned paper: making memories, my minds eye. cardstock: dcvw. stamps: stampin' up. photo corner: the paper studio. ribbon: craft supply.

Paper*Cakes Design Team

Exciting news...Chelsea from Paper*Cakes has finally posted her summer design team, which includes mwah! AND I'M SO EXCITED!!! Chelsea is so cute... she lives in Canada, which is so very far away from Kentucky...it will be fun to get to know her and the rest of the ladies working on the design team too! I will probably be posting tutorials of some of my projects, so keep your eyes out for some cute cute stuff coming soon!

have you ever heard of a scrapbooking product called "glossy accents?" i just discovered it at the store a while back, and this is the first time i've tried it out. can you see it on the purple parts of the bird's wings? wherever you apply it, it makes a glossy surface overtop of your design. it's really pretty nifty...just dont shake the bottle or else it will get tiny airbubbles in it!
