Still Working On Posting A Video

I still have yet to figure out how to post a video here but I have not given up trying. I took some time off to create a tri-fold picture frame kind of thing and It is so beautiful. I am going to post it to my itsy site for sale along with the new mini album I just finished. I am also thinking about doing some page kits and card kits for sale and if that would be of interest to anyone please let me know. I would also love to do some consignment scrapbooking but that may have to wait a bit.
I do have to say though, I am looking forward to the days of fall, crockpot dinners, and getting some of my snuggly clothes back out. I love watching Grey's Anatomy, The Practice, Numbers, NCIS, and I can actually work on projects while they are on... Now thats called multi tasking!!!
I hope you are all having a good week and that you find some little or big thing to laugh out loud about!!!

Discovering New Things

While working on this new mini book, I decided that I would try something that I have seen done but never ventured to try myself. I have been stamping on Acrylic and I love the way it has turned out. The key to it is to use Stazon ink and keep some alcohol (rubbing not rum) handy just in case it smudges and you need to wipe it off. You will be amazed at the way it looks. I also used the ink around the edges of the tag I was making to help it stand out a bit from the project. I did try to use some imbossing powder on one of them, and it looked great until I put the heat gun to it and then it shrunk up like a prune and so... you can not do that LOL. I tend to gravitate to the clear stamps as I like being able to see where I am stamping the image. I do have a ton of wood stamps too and they work just fine, as long as I can keep them straight. There are a ton of stamps to choose from and believe me I choose them ALL
Happy Saturday To Everyone and Start Your Day With A Smile

Ok so I am computer challenged

I have been sitting here for a while now trying to figure out how to post a video to my blog and still have not figured it out. I guess I need another cup of coffee and to just step away. I have a couple of video how to's that I want to share, and as soon as my brain wakes up I will get them posted. Right now I am working on a Mini Book that is really turning out to be so much fun. I love it when I can make a book and it takes on a life of it's own and it's good when it's done. I just wish I could get them to sell so that I can convience my hubbie (Dan) that this could be profitable for me....He just gives me that UH HU kinda look and smiles... I am sure glad he loves me.
Have a happy Sunny Friday Everyone!!

Finding My Direction

Hello All,
It took me a while to figure out how to make my blog look like I was creative and wow I am really impressed with it.... I have started this blog so that I can share some of my creative ideas and to have a place where I can link all my favorite places. I plan to have some how to videos and quick projects here, so that if you need some creative ideas here they will be. Please feel free to leave your comments .... Smiles
