I won...

Woohoo!! I won on my very first ever blog challenge on Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge Blog. I have been wanting to try working with water color pencils for a while and this blog gave me just the opportunity. I was very excited to finally get to work with them. I cant wait to work on the next one!

"Pretty In Pink" Scrapbook Stamp Society Blog Challenge

WOOHOO!! My first ever blog challenge!!

I decided to start off my 2012 resolution to blog more with a blog challenge at Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge Blog. The challenge was to create something using one of their images and the focus is, my favorite, the color PINK!! 

I chose the Tippy Toes image from Scrapbook Stamp Society. I used water color pencils and then fussy cut the image so that I could pop dot it for extra dimension. I chose this heart shaped lace frame and altered it slightly to remove the center portion so the background paper would show through. I cut it out using my Make The Cut program and my Cricut. I liked the intricate yet simple detail it gave without taking away from the image.

Using my 2 way Zig pen I added Kunzite from (what a weird name for the color pink!) Martha Stewart's glitter set to the bows. I added some of the left over heart pieces and some pink gemstones from The Paper Studio.

I will be adding it to a notebook as a cover. I think it turned out really cute!!

It would be awesome if you would stop on over and vote for me! Thanks for checking out my first creation of the year!!

Happy New Year!!! 2012

I am looking forward to new adventures in 2012!! 2011 was ok but there are a lot of things I would rather do better this year. I dont usually make New Years resolutions as I rarely keep up with them. I am however focusing on things I want to accomplish.

Keeping current with my blog is my first thing I want to focus on. I have seen such wonderful projects on blogs lately. I want to start documenting my crafting fun!

Here are a few of the things I have made since Christmas. They are my first attempt at paper piecing. I will be posting the completed bear sets when I have finished them. Hope you like them.
