Do you like Bella's? How many do you have and what are your favorite ones? I want to get more, but every time I go to the website I can't seem to narrow it down to just a few. No local stores carry them either so that's no help. What Bella would you be or haven't they made yours yet?
Make sure you check back Friday to see our creations!

I love our get togethers. We were at the Scrapbook Tree last night. I had never cropped there before, it was pretty nice, but we didn't know they don't provide drinks. So that was a bit of a surprise to us.
Hopefully we can get together again soon. I know it's always difficult during the summer with all the plans everyone has.
Stay tuned tomorrow for the FFF challenge announcement. See what Jen has in store for me:)

I love this stamp! It originally has 3 girls but I liked the 2 for this challenge. I added the pink because of the pink flower in the girl on the rights hat. To make this card I stamped the image on plain white cardstock then colored in the black area's with my black zig marker. Then I used my prismacolor pencils blended with oms for the rest of the colors. Next I cut the image out and matted it on pink cardstock then again on black cardstock. Then I matted it again on pink pattern paper and glued the whole thing to the 5x5 card base. I added the little bow on the bottom because I felt like it needed something I got the ribbon in a swap so I am not sure who it's by.
Supplies : stamp - Rubbernecker, cardstock - Bazzill, prismacolor pencils, ribbon - unk
Hope you enjoyed this card. Thanks for looking!
The very first thing I did was print up a tutorial from Splitcoast. This is a swing/flip flop card and you can see the tutorial here. Next I stamped the image and colored it with my Zig watercolor markers. Then I cut out the two flowers (the original image had 3). Next I cut the card base according to the instructions. Then I cut 2 pink pieces of cardstock to fit in the swing portion of the card. Then I glued the flower images on the pink cardstock and glued that to the card base. Next I hand wrote the sentiment "if friends were flowers... I'd pick you", on the second piece of pink cardstock and used my Marcy corner punch on the corners and glued that on the opposite side of the swing part. Then I added some ribbon that I had knotted in 3 places.
Supplies : stamp - Magenta, cardstock - Bazzill, ribbon - Bobbie M. Designs, corner rounder by Marvy Uchida, Zig watercolor markers.
I'll post the other unique folds I tried out in the next few days. But now I need to get ready for our Michigan Shackie meet up tonight! Yay! I am very excited to see all my shackie friends, it's been a while. I hope I actually get some work done, but more than likely I won't :) I'm usually too busy chatting away!
So did you try this weeks challenge? I would love to see your unique folds. And don't forget to check out Jen's card for this weeks challenge. Have a wonderful weekend.

Well, it's Friday the 13th, so thanks for stopping by for another FFF. This weeks theme was from Jen it was to use only black and white on a card. Here is what I came up with. I started this challenge by looking through my pattern paper and amazingly found this black and white paper. From there my mojo took over.
To make this card I started by cutting the pattern paper to 4"x5.25". Then I cut my card base from black cardstock to make an A2 size card. Next I stamped the sentiment on plain white cardstock using black versafine ink. Then I cut it to size and matted it on black carstock. Then I wrapped a piece of black ribbon around the front of the pattern paper and glued it on the back. I then glued the pattern paper to the center of the card base. Then I glued the matted sentiment to the center of card. Next I glued a white prima flower on top of a larger black prima flower and glued it to the upper left corner of the sentiment. I then added stickles to the center of the flower and the word birthday. Then let the stickles dry. VIOLA!
Supplies: stamp by Paper Inspirations, pattern paper by DCWV, cardstock by Archivers, ribbon by Bobbie M. Designs, black Stickles, Prima flowers.
I think this card is perfect for a birthday card for a girlfriend. Who doesn't love flowers? Well, I hope you are planning on playing along for some blog candy!
With it being Friday the 13th and all I was curious if any of you are superstitious? I am about a few things. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! I can't wait to hear from you and hopefully see some of your creations.

To make this card I stamped the image on plain white cardstock using black versafine ink. Then I colored it in using my Zig watercolor markers (from my secret sis). I cut the image and matted it on dark green cardstock. Next I stamped the sentiment using a silver acrylic paint dabber on dark green cardstock. Then I cut the sentiment out and matted it on the pattern paper, and again on a lighter green cardstock. Next I glued the matted image on the pattern paper (4"x5.25"). Then I glued that down on the card base (4.25"x5.5"). Then I attached the double matted sentiment using pop dots. I was very happy with how quick this was to complete.Supplies : Image by Rubbernecker, sentiment by Studio G, cardstock by Bazzill, pattern paper by We R Memory Keepers, Silver acrylic paint dabber by Ranger, Zig watercolor markers, atg adhesive gun, pop dots.
Thanks for looking and Happy Crafting,
Can't wait to see what everyone else loves to use. Here's some of my favorites: ATG gun, Pop dots, Stickles, ribbon, and I can't pick just one stamp!
Good luck and Happy Crafting,

To make this card I stamped the image on plain white card stock and colored it with prismacolor pencils blended with oms. Next I outlined the recliner with a grey marker and used chalk to color the background. Then I punched it out using a square scallop punch and inked the edges with grey chalk ink. Next, I matted it on grey card stock using the next size up of the square scallop punches and inked that with grey chalk ink. Then I cut a piece pattern paper 4"x5.25". and tore the bottom corner of it. Then I inked all the way around the pattern paper. Then I put a grey piece of paper behind it, and stamped "to wish you a". Next I added a silver square brad in the upper right corner, then glued that on my A2 card base. Then I glued the recliner image on the card using pop-dots. I also stamped on the inside "Happy Father's Day!"
Supplies : stamps - recliner by A Muse, "to wish you a" by Stampendous, "happy father's day" by Stampabilities; pattern paper - K & Co. Brookfield Vintage Diamonds; card stock - grey by Bazzill, black by Archivers; ink - black by Versa Fine, charcol by Colorbox chalk inks; eyelet by Bazzill, chalk, grey Zig brushable marker, atg gun, pop dots.
