Please open the gates

Hello Disney and Crafty Friends! Here it is just days shy of Disneyland's reopening. It is an understatement to say that I have been waiting for this day for a very long time. Although I will not be there on this exciting day I cannot wait to see the photos from those that will be. I am sure that Disney magic will be felt all over!

A Fun Birthday Card

Here is the front of the card.

Hello Disney and Crafty Friends! I cannot believe that my last blog post was August 2018!! WOW!! I guess life got busy!  I had SO much fun creating this card that I just had to share it with you.

The front of the card was created using a happy birthday die from The Stamps of Life.  You can head on over here and check out the die.  I used Judikins Diamond Glaze on the "happy birthday" to make it pop.  The card stock and gems were from my stash. I did use several layers of card stock on the front of this card and embossed the cream layer. All edges were inked.

This is the inside of the card.
The inside of the this card is where the real fun is! At least that is how I felt while coloring the images. These SUPER cute images are the Limited Edition Toy Box set from Kindred Stamps.  Though this particular set is no longer available, Kindred Stamps have some amazing products. Head on over here to check it all out.  This card is a pop-up. I used the Photo Collage Pop-Up die by Karen Burniston.  You can find this die here.

That's all I have for today! I hope that you are all well and getting in some crafting.  Have a magical day!

Swimming By!

Hello Disney and Crafty Friends!  I cannot believe that August is almost over! While many are getting ready for Fall, here in the desert we feel like summer is only half over! Kids are back in school and the stores are showing some Fall displays but we are still having hot, summer days!

It has been a fun filled summer! I attended my annual Scrap Camp! This is always such a FUN weekend filled with lots of laughs, crafting and field trips (Can you say......Hobby Lobby!). Each year we have a theme for Camp and this year it was The Dusty Derby (Think Kentucky Derby).  While at camp it was decided that four of us would have a monthly card exchange. Two months in and we are going strong! I have to say it is super fun to receive a handmade card in the mail!   For this month's card I decided to use a die that I have had for awhile but had not used yet.  Here are the four cards that I created.  Each one is slightly different from the other.

Materials used:
cardstock from my stash
Seashell card die from Honey Bee Stamps
"Swimming By" stamp and die set by Honey Bee Stamps
Memento Ink
Embellishments from my stash
Crystal Laquer
Ultra-Fine Glitter

I just love these dies. I think that the Mermaid has such a sweet expression on her face.

This summer was also filled with new adventures.  My family and I headed to Alaska. We had an amazing time. The weather was fabulous and we enjoyed every minute of it! My favorite part was the train ride in Skagway. The scenery was gorgeous and the history of the railroad was very interesting.

This summer I attended my first Origami Owl Jewelry convention. What a fun filled weekend! So much inspiration, laughter and new friendships made. It was unbelievably fun!!

That is the latest from my little corner of the world. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a magical day!!

Hello Disney and Crafty Friends! So! How many of you tuned in and watched the Royal Wedding today?  I did and enjoyed every moment of it!  What a beautiful bride Meghan Markle was!  I plan to tune in tonight for the recap. 

Keeping with the theme of today I thought that I would show you a wedding card that I made recently.

I used all from my stash.  I have not stamped in quite awhile and I was glad to be back at it.   I hope that you have a great day doing something that you love to do! Thanks for stopping by.

Hello Disney and Crafty Friends!  I have been busy making Valentine's Day cards with my new die from Stamps of Life.  I LOVE these dies!!  The one that I used for this card is called Sizzix Scallop Heart Fold-its.

On another note I just signed on as an Independent Designer with Origami Owl. I love their product and you can check it out over on my other blog Brenda's Charming Store.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope that you have a magical day!!
