I made this video demonstrating the techniques of scoring and sanding.

Lawnscaping White on White Challenge #95

Hey Everyone,

I had the crafting bug the other night and whenever I want to craft but don't have the mojo I go to challenges and so I found the new Lawnscaping #95 White on White challenge.
I have mentioned many times that I love giving my boys special notes and I made this one for them.  I plan on leaving it on their place mat.
I love using White on White.  The look is just so clean.  I embossed my background and then for my tag  I stamped my sentiment and then embossed my gold stars.  Finally I added some yellow and white twine.

core 110 lb smooth cardstock
lawn fawn stamps
hero arts ink
darice embossing folder

I made this video on how this card came about.

Thanks so much for joining me today.  I will see you soon. Have a wonderful and crafty day.

Remember to comment along the way, and link up your holiday-themed projects using Some Odd Girl stamps (new or old)!

I made for you 3 little gift tags using some of the critters!  I used Chris Mouse, Holideer,  and Tree Trimming Kaylee. 

I used the Core Basics Kraft smooth cardstock and then used my Spectrum Noir markers on the mouse and then the Pencils on the other two.  I love to use my Spectrum Noir pencils on the Kraft.  It has a great look.

Hope you have fun with this Hol-Odd-hop!  See you tomorrow.  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

11/21 Happy Birthday!

Happy Friday!!!!!
My baby turns 6 today!  So in honor of him I made this birthday card for him.  I got to have so much fun stampping and coloring with this card.  I just wish I could see him open it becuase I am leaving it on his placemat in the morning.  ( I leave the house at 5:45 am and am not home in the morning to see they boys but I alsways leave little notes and cards for them so that they know I am thinking of them!)
I made a video for you on how I made this card.
I am entering this card into the Lawnscaping Challenge #94. (It has been a long time since I have been able to play and was so excited about this challenge.)  This was just perfect timing with my little one's birthday! See the above link for all the fun details!
Thanks so much for joining me today.  I will see you soon. Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Core'dinations and May Arts Gift Bag and Tag

Happy Thursday

I got really excited when they told us that Core'dinations was teaming up with May Arts for a fun giveaway!  Be sure to stop by the Core'dinations Blog to enter to WIN!
For my project I made a hostess gift bag and tag for the holidays.  I love to bring a little gift and have it wrapped really pretty.  For my bag I used the Tim Holtz Shattered Collection. I broke out my Sillhouette to make the beautiful leaves and then got busy with my Lawn Fawn stamps!  To finsih the project off I added some yummy twine and ribbon from May Arts!

A close up of the Tag!

A video on how this came about.

Thanks so much for joining me.  I will be back next week with a new project.  See you then,
