Happy Birthday Card!

My first card!!

It’s pretty simple and definitely not my best but it is a very simple card.

I used just a pre-brought card base the background glitter paper is from the 6×6 Royal Garden paper stack by DCWV the other pink and black paper are just scraps I found in my scrap box. I sprayed the black and pink with my shimmer mist sparkle and used bling from I want 2 scrap that I bought at the Scrapbook Expo. For the layout idea I used a sketch from card positioning system which is linked over in the side bar. The Happy Birthday stamp is one I picked up at Micheals  in the dollar bin.

The Scrapbook Expo!

I went to the scrapbook expo on Saturday with my mom and it was so much fun! We started the day going to a class about CHA trends. I though it was really interesting. The teacher said that vintage was very in which was probably the one thing she said that I didn’t like. I’m not very into vintage but I don’t hate it. But she also said that as far as in colors one of the colors is pink which made me very happy because pink is my favorite color! We learned a lot!

And now what everyone has been waiting for pictures!! I’ll post the picture of what I got and describe what’s pictured. I will also give the name of the place I bought it and if they have a website I will post it as well.

 This was my big purchase and probably the thing I was most excited for! I now have my very own Scor-pal and Scor mat! I got this from The Rubber Cafe http://www.therubbercafe.com/

 This was actually my first stop of the day we started out at eyelet outlet I bought more then just what is pictured but what is in this picture is corner brads I also bought some glittery heart brads and a special something for a family member. My mom bought some flower quicklets and a ribbon to make a card for someone with.http://www.eyeletoutlet.com/

 I also went to Want 2 Scrap where they had $.99 bling and bought a whole bunch of different sparkles. http://want2scrap.com/store/

 This is a set from Heartfelt creations they sell stamp and die sets that work together. I bought a window die and a evergreen tree set I can’t wait to play with them! http://www.heartfeltcreations.us/

 I also went to stamps by Judith I think this may be my new favorite stamp company! I bought so much more then what is pictured here but I loved everything! http://www.stampsbyjudith.com/

 I don’t know how I did this but somehow I managed to leave sparkle and sprinkle without getting any embossing powder or glitter. All I got was some brush able glue that I’m kind of excited to play with and a glue pen.http://www.sparklensprinkle.com/

 from Krazy Kreations I got some supplies to make some shaker cards I always have trouble making them from scratch so hopefully this will help I also got a versamark pen which I’m excited to play with. http://www.krazykreationsstudio.com/

 and last but not least from Tessler Stencils I got some really cute embossing folders.http://www.scrapbookusaca.com/

I can’t wait to start playing with all this new stuff!

Hello and Welcome!

Hi! Welcome to my new craft blog! I just wanted to post something to say hi and welcome! I mostly do paper crafting particularly card making but I also do some sewing. Most of what I post here will be card making stuff but every once and a while (especially if I haven’t posted in a while) you might get a sewing project. I am also very active in theater and I am very into a computer game called The Sims 3 which I also keep a blog for and will link on the page if anyone is interested in checking it out! Now enough about me and on the more crafty stuff. 🙂 My card making tends to be very simple but I’m always looking to learn new things. On that note if there are any techniques anybody reading this wants to learn I will do my best to try and figure it out and give all the help I can! I love teaching people new things! On Saturday the scrapbook expo is coming to a city near me and I am going! So I’ll be back with all that soon!
