Hi everyone, I know this post comes a bit late, I apologize for that, but my youngest kid was sick and that kept me pretty busy.  Thank God he's better now. 

Yesterday was Magical Monday at Paper Cupcakes.  The theme for this challenge is "Critters".  You have to make a card/project with any kind of "critter" in the image - animal, bug, fish, etc.  Free range in creativity and design, but your image has to incorporate a critter.  You do not need to use one of our digital images to play along, but of course we would love to see a Paper Cupcakes image used. If you use a Paper Cupcake's image, you will be entered into the drawing twice to win.

Here is my card for your inspiration and please go to our blog to see all the wonderful projects our DTs have prepared for you.

Hi, it's time for another challenge at Aud Sentiments.  The theme this time is "HAPPY", just use the word happy anywhere in your card or project, ease peasy, don't you think?  Go to our challenge blog to see all the wonderful projects our DT's have prepared for you.

And because "HAPPY" is the theme, I wanted my card to give that feeling the moment that you look at it. Check it out:

The digital stamp is from our sponsor AI Factory.  It's called Ella Teacher, isn't she a cutey?

Please join us at Aud Sentiments and have fun participating!

Hi again!!!  I'm very excited because this is my first tutorial.  I will show how to make a candy bar card, to put a name to it.  I had to prepare this tutorial for SCRAPBOOKING GALICIA, where I'm the Guest Designer for St. Valentine's Day.  Yeyyyy!!!

Here is what you need to do:

You will need a piece of cardstock of 8" by 11".  On the 8" side score at:

3½", 3-3/4", 4", 7½" and 7-3/4".

On the 11" side, please score at:

7" and 7¼" 

Cut the below rectangle that measures 3½" x 4" and cut the above rectangle that measures ½" x 7", and do a little cut where there are the other two scores.  I know it sounds complicated but it isn't.  See the photos below for a better reference.


Closer look:

 Make all the folds, except the one shown on the photo (the one that it is on 3-3/4"):

Closer look:

Glue as show with a strong adhesive.

To make the flower you will need:

Tissue Tape (I used one from Tim Holtz)
10" of ribbon (it has to be a little bit wider than the tissue tape)
Needle and thread

Glue the tissue tape to the ribbon.

Make a simple thread through all the ribbon's length.

Pull the thread and roll the ribbon.

Tie the two ends of thread to close the flower.  Embellish as you like (I put a flower button on the center).

Here is my finished project:


For instructions in Spanish go HERE.

The image is a LOV stamp coloured with Distress Ink and the ticket sentiments are from Paper Cupcakes.

...LOL, hi everybody.  Here are various (of the many) St. Valentine's cards I had made for sell.  I have to make more (hopefully 2 of them with Magnolia stamps) because they were all pre-ordered.  I hope you enjoy them and serve you as inspiration.

These 3 were for men, although my husband says they look too feminine, but, hey, after all is from a lady to a gentleman, it has to be feminine! don't you think?

Here are a couple more:

And here is a sneak peek of a tutorial I'll be giving soon.  Stay tuned...

Hi everyone. It's time for another challenge at Aud Sentiments.  This time the challenge is to create anything but a card, with a sentiment.  Put those minds to work and create something to give or to hang on your wall, anything, the most important thing is to have fun creating it.  If you need a bit of inspiration go to our blog to see all the wonderful projects our DT's have prepared for you. 

Here is my project.  The fairy digi stamp is from Stamp and Create, who is our sponsor in this challenge.  Isn't she gorgeous?
