Misc. Ribbon Packs

I have 2 18.5L Rubbermaid Totes overflowing with ribbon! I was wondering if anyone was wanting to buy envies of misc. ribbons. I would post pics of the groups of ribbon and work out how many yards and so on and so forth? I was just wondering how many would be interested first before I went through all the work? We would do lets say enough to fit in a envelope that would be enough for 2 postage stamps so shipping would be $1.50 to the US and $1.10 in Canada. If you are interested please leave a little note in the comments and then I will know if it is worth my time to go through and make up some misc. ribbon groups. If this works out I have mondo fibers too! Please let me know!

Live It Up with Cosmobella

Been awhile since I stopped by to chit chat with you or show you anything. I haven't really been creating anything so really have nothing to show you! Tonight I am up waiting for Tayor as she is at a University Basketball game with her basketball team and coach. How cool is that? They are not expected home until like 11:30! What else does a girl do when you have to wait up? Play with her Bellas!

I know this is a horrible picture. I will try and upload a better one tomorrow. It is so glam too! I am one of those people that really don't like alot of the cards that I make, but I absolutely LOVE this card! I started off buy inking up Cosmobella with some black Staz On and stamping the image on some Prism white cardstock. I colored her in with my Aquarell Watercolor Pencil crayons and used my Auquaflo painter thingy for the first time! How have I gone without it for so long? My designer papers are from the Basic Grey Collection Perhaps. This wasn't a specific card for anything so I thought that the Live It Up sentiment fit it perfectly. That is one of the Studio G stamps from the Michaels $1.50 sets. Those sets are great just for all the little sentiments. I thought that Bella looked so glamorous that I added the 3 jeweled brads from Generations. The background pink cardstock is from Bazzill. Like I said this is one of my favorite cards I have made so far. Bella just makes it so easy!

I don't have anything new to show you today so I will show you one of my favorite scrapbook layouts. I cannot take credit for the design, I got the package from The Memory Workshop .
It is still one of my favorites! This is my daughter and I in 1999 at the Vancouver Zoo. The Cardstock is all Bazzill and the patterned paper is 3 Bugs in a Rug. It is from the Cabana Collection. I love the summery feeling. The chipboard letters are from Scenic Route, I wish I had more. The miscellaneous stickers are also from 3 Bugs in a Rug. The colors were just perfect to match the overalls my daughter was wearing. How cute is the picture with Taylor standing next to the pig that is bigger than she is? I have more layouts that came from the same package, I will post them later for you all to see. This was truly a great summery package from The Memory Workshop.

Mrs. ho, ho, ho!

It is such a beautiful day out, I have been cleaning (vacuuming at 9 am?) and puttering and I have even been stamping! Who wouldn't be with all the great toys I have been accumulating lately! I really need to put it all to work. I have got a cutie for you.
This is the Mrs. I started off by embossing the background with the cuttlebug folder which was a chore as I don't have a cuttlebug yet! I used my good old original Sizzix! I had some fun trying to figure it out but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do! I love the look so much and I could only afford the embossing folders not the machine! Then I decided to ink up my new Let it Snow set from Inque Boutique . I was kind of hard to color her as she is all mostly white. ( any other color you know you are in trouble!) So I colored her nose and put a little color on her branch arms with my Aquarell Watercolor Pencils and kind of blended it a little bit. I also added a little bit of blue to the bottom of her so it looked like she was sitting on some ice. I also inked up the edges of all the white cardstock for a more frosty feeling with Baby Blue Versacolor. The ribbon is from American Crafts. I topped it all off with 3 snowflake brads from Making Memories. Hope you like!

Inque Boutique is in the House

All I can say is my LSS Urban Trends Scrapbook Co. in Abbotsford rocks! I went in there yesterday just to touch base with the owner, as my kids have put me on a only can buy 2 items diet, and she has got Inque Boutique Stamps! And the best part is they are not that expensive. I was going to buy 2 Bellas but I ended up buying a Fella (for my son) and 2 Inque Boutique sets!

This is the first set that I picked out. Isn't it cute? I thought it would be a good choise with the holidays coming up and all. This set is called Let it Snow. Can you beleive that I got this set of 21 stamps for under $11.00 CAD? That is the best part.

If you have Christmas images you need Christmas saying so I couldn't give up this set too. It is a mini set even though you cannot tell from the pic. It is considerably smaller and cheaper. Under $3.50 CAD. WOW! The bonus part is there are 19 stamps to this set. This set is called Mini-Christmas. I should be set for Christmas stamps for this year but I am sure I can find more.

So, want to know how I managed to 3 items at the store? Ah, this Surfafella is for Trevor! I cannot walk into Urban Trends Scrapbook Co. and not walk out without at least one Bella / Fella. I love them all.

I am off to ink up some of these great new stamps. I hope to have something for you later!

A Quick Card

It has been awhile since I have posted something I have made for you to see. I decided to make a fall card, or is it a Halloween card? I am not so sure. It is a simple card but I a proud that I used some ribbon on it! I have oodles and oodles of ribbon and fibers all over my house. A gurl can never have to much ribbon and fiber! I started off by inking up this cute little pumpkin stamp that I got from Michaels and coloring it in with odd markers. (aux faux paus) I know! I have not had a chance to get any Copics Yet! I then mounted it on this bright orange cardstock. The patterned paper is be KI Memories, I think out of a Halloween Collection. I decided to put it all on the black backgrouck to make the brighter colors stand out. To top it off, to close up the bare space at the bottom just a thin little orange ribbon to match the whole orange in the card. Hope you like it!
