One more post before it’s back to the guest designers

I’m sitting in front of the computer & I just went through my big bag ‘o catalogues from my trip to CHA.  I was lucky that I had an extra bag with me because I think they would have made my suitcase over weight… 🙂
So a couple more things I wanted to share and then I’ll share two cards with you….

I tried these phenomenal markers – called touchdown!  from  These are just like copies, but at a fraction of the price.  I don’t know where you can buy them yet, but they were a huge hit at CHA…

I’m sort of regretting not buying a paper cutter that I liked – CARL 12210 Bidex heavy-duty rotary trimmer, 14-1/2 x 22 base, 12 cut  I forgot at the show and then was sick when we left.. I may hold off and use my birthday money for it!

I had the pleasure of meeting Sandy from Operation Write Home –  Sandy & I have emailed & Facebooked but never met in real life.  It was a pleasure to get to make some cards for our heroes & meet her at the OWH booth.

So the big news, my Silhoutte Cameo arrived, and I finally took it out of the box.  I don’t know that I’ll cut anything with it today, but I did take a minute and look through their online store – they have some really cute images!  You’ll be seeing some projects with it when I’m back to blogging again in a few weeks….

I am working on the app update.. Sickness delayed me, my apologies.  I have a bunch of cards to add – just need to work on it…  I’ll let you know when it’s released…

Here are a few of the make & takes that we did at CHA – just got them out of my suitcase…
I’m liking the quality of the pictures from my new iPhone.. 🙂

 Another topic like marker…  I wasn’t fond of topic on metal…

 Cute card with spray – the embellishment was already on the paper… My apologies, I can’t remember where it was from…

 Used the i-top for the first time and made a cute quilled heart (super easy)

 Great color spray from

 Cute Magnolia stamp

 Fun light up badge “bling” –

Cute gift box – love the flower – and the neat punched border wrap…  Super simple…  I can’t remember who’s punches they were… So Sorry!!!

Thanks for hanging in there…  And here are a couple of cards for you…

My valentines day card:

which was inspired by a Starbucks gift card…

and a birthday card for our friend, who’s turning 40…

Have a great day!
Tomorrow starts guest designers again – you have 4 more weeks of awesome guest designers (hope you’ve enjoyed the 2 from the previous weeks) and I’ll be back after that… I will be updating the Facebook page – so be sure to check that out too!
