Featured on a Treasury!!

hi everyone...

I was up late last night finishing up some custom 12x12 layouts and was so surprised when I logged in on Etsy this morning to find out that I had one of my Bible verse cards featured on the front page of Etsy. Those features are called Treasuries and they are actually created by Etsians. You pick the theme and use the images of other sellers to create the treasury.

You can see my card HERE.

And the Treasury HERE.

and, of course, the one responsible for the Treasury is Jane Grafton Designs. Go check out her shop. Thanks, Jane!! :)

I hope you have a wonderful day!!

Merry Christmas everyone!!! is the Diva layout!!

I am going to start listing again on Ebay after the first of January. so be sure to sign up for my newsletter or follow the blog to know when I list my Premade pages on Ebay.

After Christmas I want to share photos of a special please be sure to be back on the weekend after Christmas. :)

As for the layout, I used a transparency that I made myself with StazOn ink and Fancy Pants stamps. I finally got a hold of a couple 12x12 Fancy Pants Stamps for a great price on Ebay... what is that saying that goes "Great things come to those that wait"?

Last year at this time, each of those 12x12 acrylic sets were going for over $38.00. I got each for $14.00 shipping included.

So next time you want something you might want to search Ebay. Also it's always good to wait a while before you get a brand new released gadget or item. If you are not the first one to buy, you end up paying a better price and finding out all the glitches and problems with it without having to go through the hassle.

So Great things DO come to those that wait. Now, if you are impatient, then go ahead and do all the testing for me.!! HA!! anyway, LOL

Merry Christmas!!

Of course, I am NOT getting anything for Christmas. I will wait until Spring time. :)

A sneak peek of my DIVA 12x12 layout!

It's still has been the whole week!! I am beginning to get a little depressed with all this grayness. :( I have found a little refuge in making colorful designs lately.

Here is a sneak peek of a 12x12 layout I just finished. I will post the layout at my gallery later tonight. Like I said in my last post, I will list it on Ebay after the first of the year. Or if you are interested, make me an offer. :)

I really enjoy hearing from you lurkers out there. :) So, don't be shy, leave me a comment. :)

Sending you some sunshine,

NEW 12x12 Premade layouts on Ebay!!!

I was going to list a NEW layout called DIVA that I just finished this past weekend on Ebay. Unfortunately the weather is really ugly today: rainy and cloudy; and just horrible for picture taking. Since it's so close to Christmas and we are all busy, I decided I will list it after the first of the year.

However, as soon as the weather permits I will be taking photos and I will post the layout here as well as on my gallery. So be sure to check back!!

I also made some last minute Christmas cards but I won't be listing those either. I will share them later this week. :)

Have a beautiful week!! :)


WEDDING Sign up Guest Book

I had an inquiry for a Guest Sign up Book and I remembered I made one for a Wedding about a year ago. It's very vintage, Victorian, romantic and would certainly be great in other themes too. So I am going to share some of the pictures here.

I can see myself doing another one now, in other colors and themes. :) Great projects will be coming soon!!

Be blessed today!!

the JOYS of WINTER - 12x12 Layout on Ebay

hi everyone, it has been raining for the past 2 days in my neck of the woods. We are shut indoors with lots to do!! :)

This is a quick post just to let you know what I am listing tonight.

The last Ebay layout I listed sold AFTER the auction was over. I had 2 people email me about it AFTER the auction is over. Due to limited time I am NOT relisting my layouts. If they don't sell, I am using them. I am putting my own pictures on them and filing them in my scrapbooks. I wonder how many Ebay scrappers do that? How many layouts with Tear Bears can one have? ;)

Anyway, here is the layout I am listing tonight. And I am re-listing another layout just because I could not find the perfect photos for it. :( I will be looking for them though, because I am NOT re-listing it again. :)

I have used 2 vintage prints to demonstrate how to use the layout. The first one is one a 4x6" mat and the second is a print that is almost 5x7". There is enough room on the layout to hold 2 4x6" photos, or more than 3 photos cropped to 4x4" or 3x5".

Make sure you click on the images to see them enlarged and all the details. On the listing tonight on Ebay there will be many photos with details. thanks for looking. :)

enjoy!! :) Got to go make banana muffins with my daughter. :)

Bridesmaids' Cards, Handmade Christmas card and a vintage 12x12 layout on Ebay!

Hi everyone,

Winter is already driving me nuts! I am tropical girl and I just cannot stand being cold and trapped inside a house because of winter. So my children and I have been crafting away since there isn't much to do outside: cloudy, rainy and cold!! :(

Here are a few things I made this past week:

Aren't these cute?!! They are available on Ebay and as always if you would like a custom order, just email me through the link on the right side, or go to my Etsy shop. :)

OH, yes, the sun is coming out from behind the clouds! Aleluia! thank you Jesus!

I will post later tonight a tutorial on using doilies. I bought some 12" doilies and my children and I did some pretty things to them. :)

See you tonight. :)

Featured Seller on Etsy and Blog Candy!!

oh, good morning...have you seen the Featured Seller on Etsy today??? It's belleandboo and she has gorgeous work!! that vintage style, sweetness of childhood, gorgeous colors... just dreamy.

So I went to check her out and found more artists that are just awesome illustrators.

I found Thalita. She is Brazilian too and loves Jesus. and she is giving away this gorgeous print. Go check it out!!!

I got a confession to make. When I was a little girl I used to draw and make little characters. I loved Sarah Kay and played around with my coloring pencils and papers. I would love to be able to go back to that. Maybe some day, when I have more time.

anyway, I just had to mention these ladies....

Have a blessed day!!!
