A card for Traci

I am in love with dies from Memory Box lately.  I love this park bench that I saw at Stampers Alley in  Mooresville.  The owl is a brad and I found the tree stamp at HL with a coupon.  I made this for my friend Traci who is in her last 16 weeks of school.  She has been working so hard and I am so proud of her going for it!!!
I hope she likes this and it makes her smile :).

Homemade envelope glue

I made the homemade envelope glue because I could not find the envelope glue at Hobby Lobby. Instead of driving all over town looking for it, I went on you tube and found a video how to make your own glue for envelopes. Its super easy and it works!!  You just need to make sure you glob it onto the flaps real good and let them dry for a couple of hours.

After letting the envelope dry overnight, I can safely say the envelope is still sealed tight and it worked great.  Guess what I will be doing this morning!! :) Happy Envelope Making!!

Envelope Punch Board

A brand new envelope maker is out and its called Envelope Punch Board and its made by "We R Memory Keepers".  I'm not sure its in stores yet so I ordered mine online from a scrapbook store in Greensboro. I ordered it back in Feb and I just got it this week. So far, I really like it.  
It's easy to use and you can a cute envelope in a quick minute.  These are a few I made out of paper I had from Hobby Lobby. I'm still searching for envelope glue as Hobby Lobby was out.  I found a  video on you tube so I tried making my own glue but I'm waiting for it to dry to see how it worked. If it works, I will share the link  :).

Wink of Stella Brush (glitter)

I found this new product at Stampers Alley in Mooresville, NC this weekend.  I love glitter so I thought I had to have this. Its like a paintbrush and the glitter just brushes on. Its not messy and it dries pretty fast too.
These are my new tote bag dies from Memory Box. Aren't they cute? You can see the glitter on the paper I painted on. I just wanted a tiny bit and its less messy than Stickles.

I've been a terrible blogger lately

I got a part-time job back in February and I was told I would work 16-20 hours MAX a week. Well, I don't know what happened but this was never the case. I've been working 30-40 hours a week since I started!  Next week should ease up since I will be going to stores closer to home and they hired a new person to take over the electronics. I will just do the games at Walmarts now and I'm ok with that :).

Anyway, I haven't stamped since my trip to Angola, IN in April. Luckily, I made a lot of birthday cards so I will be able to stay on track there.

I am sending this to my friend Nancy in Arizona. She is currently battling breast cancer in her lungs! She had breast cancer 6 years ago. Was all cleared up and now its in her lungs. I hope they caught it early enough.  Anyway, I am sending this to Nancy :).

I'm going to try harder and get back to blogging. I miss it!

So much spam lately ...

I've been getting so much spam lately. Like 50 messages EVERY SINGLE DAY. I don't know what I'm doing differently on this blog that all of a sudden I am getting all of these spam messages.

I haven't been doing my blog like I normally do. I'm now working alot more hours so I have alot less time to make a card or any cards for that matter.

I will try and post something when I can. Please don't give up on me.

And spammers - please go away!!
