Good Morning!  I’m up and at ’em early today and trying to get a jump on the cleaning and laundry I have to do before I head to my afternoon flurry of activities!   The week is surprisingly going well and we seem to be in a good rhythm right now for school, homework, and after school activities.  I think we had such a rough start to school that it is nice now to finally have things in order. 🙂


It’s a wee bit chilly this morning, so I thought I’d share this card I made on World Card Making Day at the beginning of October.  I had a pack of paper that I found from Tim Holtz and could envision this lovely vintage holiday card with mica sparkles, etc.  Well, it didn’t turn out quite the way I wanted it too (i.e. the way I thought it would) but, since I am working on limited supplies, I think it came out okay.



The card is made on kraft cardstock and although it is hard to see in this picture, there is glitter sparkles all over the card – the snowflakes and the santa image.  I pulled out some real vintage lace, trim and a button that I picked up at t a yard sale in a bag of crafty “stuff’.  Thought it just went with the image and the vintagey feel of the card.


I’ll be back to share again soon – thanks for taking a peek today!

Rainbow Snowball October 24, 2011

Filed under: Christmas,Cuttlebug,Spellbinders — anotherkatecreation @ 1:00 am

Hi All!   This week is a crazy one at our house with dance, 2 football games, practices and the Fall Festival at school – I am hoping to make it thru Friday!! 🙂

I wanted to stop off and show you a card that I designed for the Sketchy Thursday that I like so much over on Tracy Clemente’s blog – check it out HERE – She has so many great ideas and I just knew that this snowball guy was what I wanted to use for this week’s sketch.

Isn’t he cute??  I think I have shared the stamp before – maybe in reds and greens?? – but I had the rainbow-type feeling while coloring him and this is what came out.  I embossed the background white panel and then adhered it with dimensionals to make him pop.  Added lots of stickles to make his snow glisten too!  Twine was a last-minute thought since I thought the card just needed that ‘something’ to finish it off.

Hope you are having a good week – I’m off and running today!

Take care and thanks for stopping by!



My Little Sunshine October 20, 2011

Filed under: Ribbons,Scrapbooking,Stitching — anotherkatecreation @ 1:00 am

It’s been a little while and I apologize… again!  Life has been crazy here at my house, as is the case in many homes across the country as Fall is upon us and we are all trying to squeeze in work, school, kids afterschool stuff, and the many activities that are happening all around. 

I left you last time while getting ready to get at the holiday cards on World Card Making Day.  Well, I have been busy at work in my workshop and I will be sharing some of the fun over the next few weeks.   First up, I’ll show you what I worked on before the card making frenzy…. it has nothing to do with the holidays though! 🙂

I had a mess all over my table and had to finish off a project that was cooking in my head.  I had these fun pictures of my DD that I took one afternoon in CA when we were waiting in the car for the other kiddos.  She was goofing around and was so silly that it made her very photogenic (in my opinion anyway!).  These are just random shots and I love the playful nature of the photos as well as her happy smile and the play of light. 

So, I had to make them into a fun layout for her scrapbook, and here’s how it came out.

My DD came and sat with me and wanted to have a say in what her pages looked like.  She picked the papers and the layout (placement of pictures).  She wanted flowers and the bright pink pearls and had fun helping me stitch on the sewing machine too.

The kids were playing a bit with cards and crafts too and I’ll be sharing some of their fun as well.  Look out for more posts as the holidays are fast approaching and I have lots of ideas and fun things to share!

Hope you get your creative juices flowing!  Thanks for stopping by!
