Digital Stamping

I have yet to try out the digital stamping, so when copic buzz had a challenge today using this digital download (girl) I decided to give it a try. I must say it turned out pretty cute and I like the fact that you can resize the image to fit what ever project you are working on. I cut the lables out using my Silhouette, added a few Martha Stewart Snowflake punches, brads, and even ventured into embossing the design on the tags. I used my new copic markers to color in the Digital design. The girl is popped up, although you really can't see it in the picture but it added dimension to the card.
I think this could be another danger in my scrappin and stampin habbit.

Anyway, I am getting very excited to be going to CHA in California, and getting to spend time with Barrie, and to see all the new products that are being released. I am leaving my credit card at home and taking a notebook to make a wish list on and then thinking about what I really want. We are adding A Blog to Scrapadabadoo, as well as gearing up to do videos with projects and techniques so when I get back I am sure I will be jazzed up, and ready to do some creating. I hope you will visit us at
http://www.scrapadabadoo.blogspot.com/ , join in the fun, and enjoy our progress.
I will have tons of pictures of new things to post when I return on the 28th so be sure to check back and to see what will be hitting the crafting world soon.
Toodles, and think spring !!

A Day Off

Oh My.. We are 7 days into the new year and I am just now getting a day to do whatever I want. I peeked out into my craft room and yep it's still there, just waiting for me to come in, sit down and do something creative ( I do need to do a bit of cleanning out there first). I have gotten some great new Sizzix dies from Barrie, and I did use a couple of them to do a sample for the store .

These are really fun to work with and are even great to add to a scrapbook for journing spots. I am working on a 6x6 baby book and this will be fun to add to one of those pages.
I have also had a couple of minutes to play with my Silhouette and these cute little purses are so much fun. I will be cutting them out and selling them in our store at scrapadabadoo.com. I think I am going to do some pattern ones and some plain cs ones. There are a couple more purse cuts that I am also going to do..maybe even today!

I am also getting excited as Barrie is taking me with her to CHA (Craft & Hobbie Show) In California. I will leave on the 24th (very early) and return on the 28th (very late) I went a few years back when I had the store and it's so much fun. We will do some shopping for the store, and I am looking forward to doing some of the Make and Takes....I think this is just what I need to get me jazzed up again and moving.
Anyway, off to do some crafting.. I hope you have had a great start to your new year, and that you have been blessed in ways you never knew were possible. Don't forget to take time to tell those you love how much they mean to you!!
