Did you think I disappeared?

 a bit overwhelmed & gave up on posting here....but I am back & have some new stuff....I made these photo wall hangings for my sisters & mom for Xmas....kinda like how they turned out. I used pages from the CTMH chipboard album to be the base....and layered them to make them longer, etc.

Different medium for crafting this weekend...fabric

I have bought a few mini pouches on etsy & LOVE them...I use 1 for lip gloss', 1 for change, 1 for receipts, 1 for special coupons....I could go on & On. So...thought I'd make a few for myself..and freinds...and family...

this one was my fav.

open & close

all 3 together.

see the cute flower, some felt shapes..

I need to get my machine serviced cuz it's sewing wonky...but got the job done...aren't these fun?

FUN...random Stamping

I can't afford too much new scrappin/stampin stuff right now...So I am using random stamping to make my own patterned papers. The past few months have wiped out my bday card stash...and this one is gonna be great for a kid!

My Favorite CTMH Item...

Well..I do LOVE Close TO My Heart...and not sure if i can pick JUST ONE THING....but I will...and right's the white daisy ink. I will be posting a card later today that I used stazon ink to stamp a flower ...then colored in with a waterbrush that I dipped in white daisy reinker....SUPER COOL effect....So...for this favorite is the pigment based white ink...who knows what it'll be next week !

Paper Trail Blog Hop NOVEMBER....MISTLETOE


You are at ERICA"s blog...and you should have come here from MARY"S BLOG

and you can hop on over to TERRI"S BLOG next!

Christmas is NOT my favorite holiday at all....I rather like Thanksgiving & Halloween! But...I did manage to make 1 holiday card & 1 NON holiday card using the colors in Mistletoe. I didn't get this paper pack I worked with the color scheme instead.

Snow?!? Please...only if it's made of glitter...

LIKE these snowflakes....I hate snow...well...I like it..but just not here. Rumor had it that it was supposed to snow yesterday...thank goodness that was a rumor!

I TOTALLY forgot I got this stamp set....and had left over squares from making bingo cards for school...and used them to make a couple of cards!
