Ok, now onto the layout I created using the Pink by Design {Rock On} stamp set.  If you haven't tried these photopolymer stamps yet....take it from me a 'red rubber' snob....they are amazing!

If you are anything like me when I see a sentiment stamp...I think card.  Sarah did such a great job on choosing sayings for her stamps...that I had a hard time choosing...there were so many options.

Here is a link to the Pink By Design Store: .  Sarah also just announced that Oh My Crafts! will be selling her stamps.  Yay!!  :)

Enough chattering and enabling from me, here is my layout....

Products used: Pink by Design Rock on Stamp set, Bazzill cardstock, Rock Princess Cricut cartridge, Glimmer Mist (pearl), black glittler paper (target), bling, Crystal effects, Tim Holtz tiny attacher.

See the yummy glimmer mist.  Gotta love some sparkle!!  These little embellishments were made by stamping 3 images from the Rock on set and coating them with crystal effects.  The circle punch is from Stampin' Up.
One of the many fantabulous sentiments in the Rock On stamp set.  Because the stamps are photopolymer I was able to curve them on my block before the sentiment a wavy look.  Then I added a music note at the end.  Attached it to the Layout with the tiny attcher and dimensionals (from SU! far the best dimensionals on the market!)
Here is a close up of the title.  I cut the crown and bow from the black glitter paper and blinged it up a little :)   The zebra paper in the background from (Hobby Lobby) was crinkled and inked up with SU! lavendar lace ink. 

If you have any questions please let me know.  I will be away from my computer for the next couple of days while I recover from surgery, but I promise to answer your e-mails as soon as I can.

Back from CHA....

Hey everyone, didja miss me...huh did ya!?!?  LOL! 

We have officially moved into our new home, my scraproom is not finished but I have it set up so it's functionable---which is good enough for me.  ;) 

Last week I had the pleasure of going to CHA (craft & hobbie association trade show) I got a sneak peek of all the new products coming out for scrapbooking and card making.  Now I had a lot of favorites, but there is one little fun tool that really stuck out to me.  I thought I would share it with you all...

It's called Sew Easy, it's made by We R Memory Keepers....and I am in love.  Not run off to Vegas love, but you know what I mean, right???

The initial tool will retail for $7.95 and the interchangeable thingies (yes, that is a technical term) will only be $2.50.   Sweet deal right!?!?  I though so.  So you want to see pictures, right.  Of course you do.

But before I show you pictures, I just want to say I played with this cool little tool at CHA for awhile.  I know it says pierces on the packaging...but the wheels are plastic and they "dent" the paper but they do not pierce it.  They are more of just little guides.

Are those stitches super cute, or what?  I know some of you are super D duper sewers and would have no need for something like this....but I am not that girl and this is just what I need. 

I promise to start posting projects again very soon.  Pinky promise ;)
