Amazing Camera Bags

Just found out about these amazing camera bags by Maile Wilson. They are called Ephiphanie Bags - I love the Belle bag - Turquoise with a lime green interior. Doesn't get any better than that. Too bad I only have a tiny camera right now. A gal can dream though. Maybe if I get the bag, the camera will be next? Can I justify that to my dh?

Anyway, these bags are another small business that deserves our support. Go check them out and pass it on...

Some more yummy random crafty goodness

Had my weekly Craft Your Art Out session today. It is my THRIVE group - to help those with deployed spouses learn a new craft, enjoy a craft and just get out and have a good time. Today, I had 2 ladies (mom and daughter team - though the daughter has 4 kids of her own) and we had a great time visiting.

These are the cards I completed today - think my MOJO was on. Want to start on some other projects soons but I was pleased with what I accomplished. Next week I hope to spend more time on my digi scrapping classes - maybe I will even have a layout or two to post.

All inks, stamps and cardstock represented in these posts are Papertrey Ink.

The cherry card uses Cosmo Cricket Early Bird paper and PTI Everyday Button Basics stamp set.

I also used Polka Dot Basics II on this card besides Websters Pages patterned paper for the cup of the cupcake.

(not sure why no matter how many times I upload the blog is flipping my photos from their original, correct orientation - sorry tried fixing it many times)

The red/black card utilizes PTI Black & White Basics patterned Paper colored with R29 copic to coordinate. Stamp set used: PTI Giga Guidelines - also used PTI clear cardstock, run through the cuttlebug with the Fillable Frames die and embossed with a cuttlebug folder - argyle, used Fresh Snow ink to make the edges "POP".

The paper pieced cupcakes (can you tell I love doing that?) are from Websters Pages and PTI. Stamp sets used are Baby Button Bits and Cupcake Creations.

Please ask if you have questions on the colors used. Late at night and just wanted to give the basics.

Thanks for looking.

CAC - 6 Enchanted Evening & Soft Stone

This is our recipe for the next challenge along with the inspiration photo. If you look closely at the bookshelf you will see a pink book or box. I took my inspiration from that and added Raspberry Fizz to my card. I did add an extra layer but I really wanted that pop of Raspberry in there.
I used Friends til the End for my embossed image. I then used my Copic trio to color in the center of the flower. I distressed the edges slightly and sponged Enchanted Evening on the edges. For the sentiment I used Hello from the New Fillable Frames #1 stamp set. I then used Versamark and white embossing powder for the sentiment. I added 3 Raspberry Fizz buttons tied with floss that closely matches enchanted evening.
