Papertrey Make it Monday #7

Here is my Make it Monday #7.  The challenge was coloring with copics.  I love mine, but I am still a novice at this!  I really would love to take a class on how to use them so I can get more out of them.  For now I watch videos and read blogs on them. 
Suppiles:  I used my PTI Year of Flowers: Daffodils for the stamp.  The paper is bazzill, the pattern paper is from Tim Holtz's new paper pack and the ribbon is American Craft. The copics I used were Y11, Y13, and Y15, (these were the yellows) Y38,YR04, and YR07,(these are the oranges)G07,G14,and G17(these were the greens).  I had tried to take a picture of them but I could not get it to focus.   

 Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

A great day!

It is Saturday and I love the weekends!  This was a really a great one.  I started with sleeping in getting up about 7am.  I made my coffee and oatmeal then sat down to the newspapers and my computer to get finish looking at yesterday's blog hop.  I pulled up Papertrey Ink and guess what???  I won the random answer the question on the PTI forum!!!  I was so excited so much so I scared my dog!
I then got go spend the day with a great friend and her two daughters.  We had lunch at Red Robin then we hit Archivers!!  I spent my Christmas money and got some really yummy stuff!  I am working on my Make It Monday with some new stuff and will post tomorrow after I finish it.  So Meanwhile here is a card I made at the beach trip I went on in January.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great Saturday evening!

March Papertrey Blog Hop


Today is the Papertrey March Blog Hop.  I found it hard to figure out what to do with floss.  I would have bowed out this month but I participate in a challenge group and Mel wanted us to find out PTI roots and participate in all the Make it Mondays and the monthly blog hop.  So here we are the 25th of March and it is the hop.  I had no idea what to do.  So here is what I came up with.
I used the floss as ribbon and wound the floss around the pattern paper.   Then I already had the die cut the label with my flowers stamped on it with the jems so I attached it on top and added a saying.  I really like the way it came out.   Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!

Make it Monday

Here is my take on Make it Monday we were to use an impression plate using only part of it. I only own one impression plate so I used it!  I used the Woodgrain impression plate and really liked the way it turned out.  I also used Erin's idea of scoring after I ran the impression plate through my Big Shot.  I then used the fillable frame #4 with a saying from fillable frame #6.  I then stamped Dot Spot on the card front and attached the woodgrain with the fillable frame and added some embellishments to finish it off.  I really like how the whole card came together.   Hope you enjoy it!  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great evening!!   



Happy Spring!  Today I am posting my Papertrey Inkers Monthly Challenge.  Mel gave us this challenge
"This challenge has several layers to answer throughout the month of March:
 1)Tell your story of how you discovered Papertrey Ink (the trigger).
2) Using (the trigger) make a project for each of the March Make it Mondays.
3) Now that you've fallen back in love with your first love of PTI, use (the trigger) to showcasing the PTI Blog Hop Challenge this March.
I hope I have you thinking of all the different things you can do with your first PTI Love."
I have been following Papertrey Ink since it started back in 2007.  I found it when I used to spend many hours on Splitcoast Stampers. Once I found Papertrey it took me a few months to buy my first stamps.  I  bought two to start Trojan Monogram and B & C Monogram Edition. I have used both in the two cards above. I can not tell you the last time I took these out and used them!  So thanks to Mel for getting me to use them!  My next post will have my Make it Monday for the second week of March.  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great Sunday night!

St Patrick's Day

Happy St Patrick's Day!  I hope everyone has had a wonderful day!  I have not blogged over a week due to a few things like  a busy weekend and then having a lovely GI bug that is still lingering.  Yuck!  I would love my stomach back to normal!
 I was hoping to get some cards done for today, but have had no desire to get into my craft room and play.  So I am posting a card I made on my trip to the beach in Jan.  I recently gave it  to my friend for her Birthday.  I love how it came out!  I have to say I think this is one of my favorite stamp set from Papertrey.  I think it can be used for so many things!   Thanks for stopping by!  I hope to get into my craft room this weekend and work on a few projects that I need to get done!  Have a great Friday!!

Another Sunday!

Happy Sunday!  Unfortunately it is almost over!  I have to share my dinner with you all it was super easy and yummy! Chicken Alfredo, I used  half and half, parm cheese, and butter. Oh and a little salt.  I finally got it right, low and slow! I have tried this a few times and it never came together. This time I got it and it was good!

Anyway, finally played in my craft today for an hour or so and only manged to make two cards?!  Yikes!! Ever have one of those days!  Or should I say weekends.  I sat down at my table yesterday and did nothing!  I just had a blank mind and nothing was working.  I finally gave up and went back this afternoon.  Here are the two cards I  came up with.  I went to Michaels yesterday and purchased the I rock and some embellishments to go with it.  I used those on the With Love card.  I really like the look and it took no time to get them on the card!  Well it has been a nice low key weekend! Here is hoping the coming week is too!  Have a great week!  Thanks for stopping by!
