Playing "catch up"....long post

Ok, I have been very busy trying to keep up with two hobbies.....yes two!! Jewelry making & paper crafting.
Here's a few pictures of what I have been up to.
First my Christmas tags for Kyoko's tag swap that she has coordinated for us crafters, if interested see here
Used a retired SU set,  (forgot name) also all CS & embossing folder from Stampin Up.

Next is a Wedding Shower card I made for one of my "crafting" buddies Tomi.  She is getting married next month :)  I used the colors of her wedding & finally used my heat gun & embossing powder!!  I haven't touch that stuff in a long time.

I used the set from Stampin Up called "Lifes Special Moments"  All CS & embossing folder from SU.
Okay & then my jewelry making, I have been using sea shells lately, it seems to be popular in Hawaii, then just the beads....

OCS card

I can safely post my OCS card that I made for my partner Debi.  If you would like to meet new friends in blog land hop over to Linda's blog & join in on the fun of swapping cards monthly.
Her theme this month was "Summer" but I already had an idea in mind, so I thought it kind of matched???? 

I used this sweet TGF image, added some flowers that I got from Michaels (Texas), CS from SU.
If you like using TGF images, hop on over to Tamiko's on line store for these cuties, and if you order over $25, shipping is Free!!
Got to go & work on a Wedding shower card now~ Aloha my friends.

Bookmarks......and a Beautiful card from Linda.

I spent some time this weekend making paper clip bookmarks for my daughter's BF's sister's & Mother.....
Fast & easy, I also made a matching tablet for his Mom.
Back ~ I personalized each one.

Tablet I made to match Kelly's bookmark.

My Husband & I Celebrated our Anniversary this past week, and Linda was so thoughtful, she came over to craft & gave us this Beautiful card w/ a GC to one of our favorite local restaurants.
She is always thinking about others, and has a big heart!!
Thanks Linda!
Hope you are all enjoying your Labor Day weekend & got some crafting done :)

Another BD card :)

I have two SIL's who celebrate their BD this month.  I made this card for one of them.  I have so much ribbon & always forget to make use of them, so for this card I left out the flower embellishments I used ribbon & bling instead.  Colored image w/Copics.  I will be sharing my card that I created for the OCS that Linda & Kyoko host each month on my next post, hope you come back! :)
Looking forward to my long 3 day weekend!!

Playing w/Paper & Beads!

Well, I am still beading, but taking some time to paper craft also.  I made these favor bags using my SU large Sizzix die.  It was a great way to put some of the jewelry in to give as little "just because" gifts!
I also made a card....can you believe it?  I am slowly getting my mojo back!
Hope you are all having a Great Weekend.  I will be going to Teri's class today, so I can learn new ideas.

Tinkerbell & Peter Pan!

A friend asked if I could make tags for your daughter party favors.  The party was Tinkerbell theme, so of course I had FUN making these.
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  I had a busy day today, but plan to drive to the North Shore & find shells for my jewelry making.
I WILL be paper crafting this week ;)

Friday Night RAK

Hi ya'll!!!  I have been busy BEADING!!  Yes, I am so into my jewelry making that I am neglecting my stamps :(.  I did find time to make my RAKS for my Friday Night group of Girls.  We will be making different types of boxes, so I'll have something to post on Sunday :).
I made these quick box/bags using DSP & CS from SU.  Made flowers using the Scallop punch also from SU.  I love making paper flowers, I find it relaxing. Of course I also used my Nesties :)
Wishing you all a Great weekend, and I am so glad that tomorrow is Friday!!  Had a rough few weeks, been SUPER BUSY with a lot of things.  I need to learn how to slow down a bit, I am getting old....hahahaha

Hugs my Friends~

TGF images....Cute!

I got a few TGF stamps & finally INKED some of them up!!  I keep ordering because I just need to have it, then it sits in my basket...I know a lot of you are the same way :)

This first card is a Sweet TGF image I got from Tamikos. 
 I did some paper piecing, colored the rest with my Copics.   I made this for my hubby's co-worker that had surgery a few weeks ago.

Nesties, Copics,SU CS & oval punches were used to make this card.
I won't have much more to post soon, as I am winding down & getting ready for my vacation to Texas!  :)
Thanks for stopping by my friends.

Batter Up!!

I always have a hard time making masculine/boy cards, but with Batter Up Ian it is much easier :-)
I did the paper piecing for his cap, easier then coloring....LOL   Check out Tamiko's for the latest stamps from TGF.

Obsessed with the Flowers!

Here's a few flowers I made the other night using DP from my scrap basket.  It was relaxing making them. One of my blogging/crafty friends said she tried one but was not happy at how it came out, so I decided to mail these to her to make use of.  It was a great way to make use of my scraps, I always have too much of that!
I made these with the same DP, but by sponging them with different color inks, it gave each their own look.
I used some Dazzling diamonds on this one.  I liked the way it came out!
Hope she likes them all. "Surprise" :)
