Take a picture, it lasts longer

Remember saying that when you were kid? We thought we were so clever! That quip popped into my head when I saw the new Camera Set digis from Tiffany Doodles. I love this set- it is so fun and trendy! So when Tiffany asked if I would like to be a guest designer, I jumped at the chance to play around with these images.

2012-03 Tiffany doodles camera WM

I just had to pick this image to work with first. I recently purchased a new camera and am trying to take more and better photos of my family. I couldn’t resist working with an image that looks so similar to my new toy.

Here is a look at the complete set. Aren’t they fun? All March releases, including this set, are on sale for 10% off through March 31.

The sentiment on this card was added using a custom made rub-on. The tutorial I created demonstrating this technique can be found here.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.

Pumpkin Spice–What Time Is It?

Hello! Today is my day to post on the Pumpkin Spice blog. My card fits our current challenge, “Time”. We would love to see your project with either a word or element that implies time. I have to admit I was a bit stumped by the challenge at first. I could only think of clocks and watches, but I didn’t have any stamps that would fit. I finally had my “Ah ha!” moment and thought about looking up a quote about time. I found this quote from John Lennon that I really liked and the idea for my card grew from there and these beautiful Pebbles Inc. papers.I love these new papers from Pebbles, Inc. The colors are so bright and cheery, I had to use them to chase away the spring gloom we have right now. I love each of the 18 patterns (2 pages of each) included in the 6x6 pad.I hope this helps to inspire you to think out of the box and create a project for our “Time” challenge. You can link up your project and find the challenge details HERE. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous …
