Coupon Book

Hello everyone!
This post has been a long time coming. I have been using this coupon book for about a week now. I normally like to post before I use, but it took me a while to figure out how I wanted to keep it closed in my purse. I ended up using a knob from the unfinished wood section in Michael's and some elastic ribbon. I must say I LOVE the way it turned out. The stamp I used is from The Greeting Farm (LOVE THEM!!) all of their stamps are super cute so it can be hard to choose (consider yourself warned). I have had this stamp for awhile now because anything shopping related is a must have for me. I thought it fit this project perfectly. I colored her in with my Copics (yes I'm still learning). I used a Spellbinders die to cut out the shape around her then used my distress inks to give it a little shadow around her. The trim at the bottom has tiny rosettes with black pearls in every other one (hard to see in the photo). I used my Cinch (LOVE) to bind it all together. As you can tell I have packed it full already with coupons.
I hope you enjoy my post and as always if you have any questions please comment!

"Made with Love" PKS Sketch Challenge 44 w/a Twist

Hi everyone!

This is my entry for the Peachy Keen Sketch Challenge.

Now I know what you are thinking great Valentines Day card right? Sorry to disappoint you, but it's not. I started with the snowman stamp from Peachy Keen and just kept going with the heart theme. The challenge was to stick to a monochromatic scheme. So I used different variations of red and pink. The hearts are stamped with Everyday Character faces also from Peachy Keen stamps. I ended with a great sentiment from the fabulous Emma! This was also my first time using my Copic Markers so be nice...I tried! I will keep working on improving, but I do think for my first time without going to any classes I did pretty good.

If you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment.

Glass Etching

So everyone knows you have to have snacks when you craft! Right? Some people have to have a salty fix while others like me need a sweet fix. So here is my little "Sweets Jar" for my favorite crafty snack. I used A Child's Year cartridge to cut out "Sweet" using vinyl. I then used the etching cream to etch "sweet" into a glass jar I was giving as a gift. I added some ribbon and a button and now I have a cute way to store my favorite treat.
