Kit And Clowder October 2017 Marker Class


Hello there friends and followers! Today I spent my day working on the October 2017 Marker class offered by Kit and Clowder. I dont know why, but this felt like the hardest class I have taken, yet. It might have been the crashing of my marker bag onto the floor that made it seem even more dreadful to complete. What a mess that was.



I managed to get the markers reorganized in my marker bag somewhat and continued on with my project. I had a lot of difficulty with the tree and the sky. It never fails once I think I can take on an entire class I find a marker dried out and another nib ruined. It sure makes it a hassle when trying to blend out colors. The adorable digi in this class is called Penguin Party and it can be found at Whimsy Stamps!

Kit and Clowder July 2017 Marker Class


Oh yes, I am on a coloring spree this weekend! I am trying to catch up on last years classes. I know I am paying for them so I should have done them. Time slipped away from me somehow. Today I worked on this beautiful digi image.

My Creative Scoop May Copic Marker Class


I found My Creative Scoop while searching Pinterest. My Creative Scoop is a web site that offers digis to color and also fun marker classes all online. I had asked Mindy, the owner at My Creative Scoop to sponsor our Twisted Thursday challenge in January 2018, and today I finally decided to take her May Copic coloring class. 


This beautiful digi is purchased from Whimsy Stamps, and Mindy teaches you how to color it up to look beautiful! I love taking the online courses for techniques, and I love the variety of teachers out there willing to help us better our skills. I once was a skeptic about the online courses, but now I am hooked! If you are chewing on the idea of classes, I highly reccomend them. There are free classes to get you hooked, and from there you are on your own! :)

Double Embossing


Howdy friends and followers! 
On Twisted Thursday at Outlawzchallenges.ning.com we are always an ANYTHING GOES Challenge with a fun optional TWIST! And every month we have a prize to give away from one of our fabulous sponsors! For the month of May, our sponsor is All Dressed Up Digistamps, and this weeks fun optional twist for Twisted Thursday is Double Embossing! 

What is Double Embossing? Well, seems we all might think of it in a different way, one might think of it as one wet embossed technique and one dry embossed all in one creation. I took it as two embossed items no matter what kind, that is the fun of the challenge, we are not picky, it is how you interpret the challenge that makes the inspiring variation of cards from our members inpire us! Sure hope to see you there at OUTLAWZ CHALLENGES!

Lavender & Lace


This weeks optional challenge twist on Twisted Thursday at Outlawz Challenges is Lavender & Lace! I love this challenge, too bad I had bitten off more than I can chew the last few weeks and I was totally lagging behind. I had to whip this creation up at last minute. I do not know where I have been over the last week, oh wait. I was doing my Kit and Clowder coloring classes. I was practicing what I have learned with this beautiful image from our May sponsor, ALL DRESSED UP STAMPS! 



I hope you come on over to Outlawz Challenges and join in on the fun for your chance to win a fabulous May prize from our sponsor! :)

Crochet Hanging Basket


Hello Friends! Today I am sharing with you this adorable Crochet Hanging Basket. This particular basket wasn’t smaller than I had expected. 



I was making this basket for my partner in the Friendship Crochet Swap on Facebook. We were told if it’s 6 inches make two. So I went up a hook size and made another. 

Aren’t they cute? I tried out this new yarn, it feels like a stretchy t-shirt. This is how it looks hanging.

Crochet Sunglasses Case


My first ever, Crochet Sunglasses Case! I am so thrilled how it turned out! I had never used purse clasps before and once I found out that my partner in the Sunglass Case Crochet Swap loved the ocean theme and seashells, well I knew I had beads in my stash that would be perfect to incorporate either into a key ring or a charm. I cannot wait to make more items with these coin purse clasps!

Crochet Dolphin


Found this cute pattern for free of a dolphin I thought I would give a try in baby yarn. I am going to try again in a thicker weight yarn, It really isnt bad, but I think it could be better. I had intended to use it for a charm on a sunglasses case but it turned out a tad too big for that idea.

Kit and Clowder January 2018 Marker Class


This beauty was so fun to color. I didn't have all the colors Alyce, the owner of Kit and Clowder used. But it still turned out looking stunning!

Elly’s Birthday Digi


This adorable Digi by Sasayaki Digis is so cute! I used discarded scraps for my background, and some dies to get the flower shape cut around my elephant. I added some fun polka dot paper, and a ribbon. For the inside added a Happy Birthdat sentiment and a strip of striped design paper.  Sasayaki Digistamps can be found on Etsy.
