As Halloween draws closer, I thought I'd get myself as well as others in the mood with adorable Halloween themed picture frames! These were so much fun to create and make, that I couldn't stop at just one! These "Devilish" frames are the perfect Halloween treat (and won't give you cavities)! You can see more at the Pasadena City College Flea Market on Sunday, Oct.3rd, from 9am-3pm. See you there for a bewitching time!

Hello Everyone! Happy Wednesday! I just wanted to share today what a friend has made for me. Isn't she cute? I liked how she laid out the color schemes and used embossing and edge punches for this card. The stamp itself is from the greeting farm in digi format. Hope it itches your crafty side to come out =)

Hi there! Hope everyone's weekend is wrapping up great! I just wanted to let the new stampers know that the greeting farm stamps require a permanent ink based and is called "Memento." This can be found at michael's in tear drop sets of 4 for 9.99. You can color them with any type of art color pencil or marker but copic markers are the recommended best results for your images. You can check out "color me copics" for tutorials on how to use these for fabulous results which I follow on my blog! Last but not least, you need to get special (thick) paper that can withhold the ink from copics and to prevent it from bleeding. I recommend kelly's paper (there's a store location in Rosemead or one in Pasadena) where they have the cheaper alternative for about 15 bucks for a ream of paper (Neenah Paper (green wrapping)) or 32 bucks for the better quality (Neenah Paper in Starwhite). Any questions let me know. Hope this was helpful!

Good Morning! Hope everyone's week is wrapping up nicely towards the weekend! I have been pretty busy so barely got a chance to post these so will take advantage. I made this card for a friend of mine that I call Guru because she's such a talented crafter! I was also able to enter this card into a contest hosted by the Greeting Farm called "Make A Scene" and was thrilled to find out that I won!!! It was such a fun challenge and I was glad I did it. I used sakura flower punches for the leaves and cherry blossoms to create this theme. The sun and grass are punches from stampin up' as well as the tree frame. I used geisha anya's body and spotlight anya's head for the images alteration from the greeting farm stamps =) I loved how it all came together...it's just too adorable to not want it...hehe. Thanks for stopping by!
