Hellooooooooooo

It's been awhile since my last post. Things have been crazy since I lost my job a month back. I wanted to share a few things that I have worked on these past few days. Our daughter's baby shower is coming up real fast and I wanted to make a little set to put something inside it for her. I don't know what yet, but I'll find something...
If you get a chance pop on over the the Hallmark Ladybug blog and check out the easter bags that DeeDee just posted yesterday. They are awesom, cute and jsut too adorable...
here's what I have been working on...hope you like them....
I used the tags bags and boxes, paper dolls and my community cricut carts, cuttlebug embossing folders on the treeglossy accents, stickles and some distress crackle paints on the number 4 from Tim Holtz' grungeboard. You can purchase all of these in the store at Hallmark Scrapbook. Take a gander over to the store and check out all of the new things and the deals that are still going on. You totally won't be surprised.
You can click on the photos to get a better view.
here's a layout of our little one and her adopted sister (friend)...I used the grungeboard and distress crackle painted from the store. I don't know about you, but I just love this stuff. If you don't have any of this yet, you need to have this in your supplies. It's so fun and easy to add dimention to your cards or projects. You can get these in the store also...
here's a layout of a day trip we took down to the beach to help celebrate Dad's 70th birthday. I used the Sesame Street cricut cart for the crab. Used some washers that I purchased in the hardware store and aged them with some chemicals. I made a border around the layout using the MArtha Stewart doily punch and used tea dyed material through the holes that I punched out with the Bind it all machine. I also tea dyed the 2 tags and used alot of Distress inks to age the layout.
here's a card I made for a challenge over on the message board at Hallmark Scrapbook. I had asked everyone to use the border flower cut from Walk in my Garden to make a card for Mom. Hallmark Scrapbook is having a sale on Cricut carts still. Pop on over and check them out if you're looking for some new ones. Or you can pre-order the new carts that will be in later sometime.
I wanted to make a new piece of art for my studio and this was what I came up with. I was playing around with the negatives from a few cuts for the background and to make the letter "L". I used polymer clay added it to the negative to make the letter and then I used the Sizzix clear stamps to impress into the clay before I baked it. Then I used bown, black paint watered down to give it an aged look. The background I used the possitives then inked the sheet using the Distress inks, then took the sheet of negative and added the swirls Sizzix clear stamps and stamped inside the scrolls. I think it's missing something, but I just can't put my finger on what I need to add yet...
Well I hope everyone has had a great month...Hugs from Charm City
