So it's Wednesday and and Wednesdays on my blog mean Stampotique Designers challenge. Sadly, this is my last week playing with the Stampotique Design team. My month is over and I have had a great time playing with such talented ladies. Every week they make drool over there creations.
This weeks challenge is "Do what you Love". I love to journal, and not only did I make a journal page, but I made a journal page about journaling....hehehehe. This is a pretty basic page, but I completely love the supergirl
image from Stampotique. She is perfect for so many different projects. I colored her with copics, and then cut her out to add to my page. I used Dylusion ink spays, and Dylusions border stamps. My saying is computer generated. I hope you enjoyed my journal page and if you are looking for some amazing inspiration, you should head on over to the Stampotiques Designers Challenge, and come an play with us.....
Well, that is all I have today. I hope you have a wonderful day and week. Happy Creating :)

Happy Hump Day...we are half way through the week. I am really looking forward to the weekend. Why you ask, well, It isn't jam packed with plans. The kids have 2 sporting events, but beside that we are free....it isn't often that we as a family have weekends like this, I cherish them when we do....
Today is Wednesday and Wednesdays for the month of January = Stampotique challenge day!!! The challenge this week is to use your New Years resolution as your inspiration! One of my New Years resolution is to let more things go and spend more time enjoying myself. I admittedly am a worrier and I hope that this year, I can put my worries behind me and do more dancing in the rain. This is a very simple journal page, but I kind of like the way it turned out. Did you see my rainy day in the corner....How cute is he. He is a rubber stamp from Stamotique originals......He has friends that look just like him too.....You can check them out here.
Well, I hope you will join us over at STampotique and play with us. Hope you have a great Wednesday and I will be back soon. Have a great day!

Here we are in the middle of winter and we are going to celebrate that with a winter challenge....This week we want to see your SNOWMAN cards.....for this challenge, I used The Large Snowman Post from I Brake For Stamps. I really wish the pic came out better, as the stamp is so detailed and the pic doesn't catch it that well...Not only does the stamp make a great winter card, but a fabulous Christmas card as well...Love it!
The entries for the last "Something New" challenge were FABULOUS!!!! You all are so talented. It is always so hard to pick the TOP 3, but after drooling over all your creations, the TOP 3 are:
Tracy: Love the simple design. Gorgeous coloring
Suzette: Image is perfect for your paper and elements
Zora: Stunning...Love the flow of your design
Fabulous cards ladies Please feel free to grab the I made TOP 3 banner on the right of my blog!

So, here we are heading towards mid January and Feb 14th isn't that far away, and while my hubby and I don't really celebrate Valentines Day, I do enjoy the Holiday and the decorations and things it brings. We always get the kids a little something on Valentines and I love to make cards and valentines with the kids. So, this weekend I made this card using my "Heart Cammy" stamp from I Brake For Stamps. Isn't she the sweetest image? She is just adorable and she has three other stamps similar to her....SOOOO Cute!!!! I really am a sucker for little girl images.....and don't forget, if you decide you "Have" to have this stamp and would like a discount, feel free to use the following discount code:SAVE10KRISTEN for a 10% discount on your whole purchase....
Well, that is all I have for you today...Like I said, it has been a week and an exhausting week. While my family and I have booked weekend, I am planning on getting some stamping in even if I have to lock myself in the basement, and actually, seeing that my son has the flu, we maybe putting some of those plans off, so stamping I will do.....So, have a great weekend and happy Creating!

Today's project is a Journal page I created on Saturday for today's Stampotique Originals weekly challenge. This weeks challenge is Die cuts or punches. I started my journal page, as I often do, not knowing what the heck I was going to create. For the first time in a long time, I actually used Gesso and when from there. A little Dylusion spray here, a little spray there and then it all came together....I used heart dies and sprayed them and then used stencils and sprayed Mr. Huey's white spray over the stencil, and let it dry while I was coloring my image...I did a little doodling and added my elements and BAM....page complete...I completely love this Little Hoo-Hoo stamp from Stampotique....So freakin cute and the saying is just adorable!!! This is a great challenge and I hope you get a chance to play along with us and you have got to check out the DT's creations for this weeks challenge, as the DT is AMAZING!!!!!
Well, that is all for me today, I am off to get inky and hope you are too....Have a great Wednesday and happy creating!
Stamps: Little Hoo-Hoo Stampotique
Inks: Gesso, Dylusions sprays, Faber Castell PITT markers, White Mr. Huey

Today's card is not my "typical" type of card. I used this New Years collage stamp from I Brake For Stamps. This year, I am trying to explore many different types of stamps, as well as media types. Be creative I say......Well, that is all for me today, I hope you have a fabulous weekend and happy Crafting!

So, I have some SUPAH exciting news to share with you today....I have been asked to be January's guest Design Team member for Stampotique Originals.....Wahooo....Of course I said yes, right after I was done dancing around my living room with excitement....LOL...Seriously, I was SOOO excited...as you may know, I am a HUGE fan of their stamps and they have the most amazingly talented DT, and I am thrilled to be a part of it, if only for a short time.
Today starts Stampotique's first challenge of the year and they are kicking it off with :
Dear Diary.... It's the beginning of a new year so time for calendar pages, diaries, 2013 journal covers. For this challenge, I went with a journal page, as it is my favorite thing to create right now, and with one of my New Years resolution being to create MORE, I went with a crafty page.....This page was super fun to make...I think one of the reasons I enjoy creating journal pages so much is because when you start, you never know what it will look like in the end.......Kind of like a New Year!!!!!
Well, that is all for me today. I hope you have a fantastic day and happy Creating!
Ink: Dylusions sprays, acrylic paint, Ranger black ink, white pen

So this "something New" challenge will end on Monday January 14th at 6pm. Were you lucky enough to get anything "new" for the holidays??? Honestly, I have been trying VERY hard not to purchase to much lately, but I did buy this new Christy Tomlinson paper, as well as the snowflake stencil that I used in the background of this journal page. I traced on of Christy's diecuts and added my own touch to her girl diecut. When I look at this page, I think "what a mess", but you know what, it is my mess.....LOL...
So, this week we want to see one of your creations using something "new" to you......We can't wait to see what you create....but first, I want to show you what the DT created for this weeks "Something New" challenge:
