Happy 3rd Birthday, Milk Coffee!

Hello, hello, hello!!

And welcome to Milk Coffee's 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop!!

First of all, I just wanted to say Happy Anniversary to a wonderful company and DT! And secondly, we are celebrating with a special challenge and blog hop! Our theme for this challenge is THREE. That is, you could use three colors, three papers, three images, etc...whatever you want, just do it in threes! Both the showcase and challenge teams are doing it!

So I chose Lisbeth and the Big Mushroom in the rain digi - there are three images in here :). There are three patterned papers (all from Amy Tangerine), and I used three pieces of chipboard stickers to embellish.

Honey and Latte Sue.

Hi there!!

Today, I'm doing reviews on two Roberto's Amigas stamps over at C.C. Designs: Honey and Latte Sue.

I personally love how these images look like they're in the 30s, don't you? They reflect my age and a whole lot of crafters out there, hee hee hee!
The cards are done up in Fall colors. I've been doing that a lot lately. Wishful thinking, I guess. It's still in the '80s here in California. I wish it'd turn a bit cooler already :).

See you folks!!

Ribbons and her ribbons and doilies.

Good Tuesday morning, folks!!

It's been awhile since I've played with Some Odd Girl stamps -- I've quite missed them!! Here's a card I created for one of my dear co-workers -- she has an upcoming wedding, and I was in charge of her group card. Believe me, I wanted to put some kind of plastic covering on the front of this for fear that it'll get wrinkled, or dirty, or ruined when my colleagues are signing it!

Gold is my new fave color, and I really like how this card came out. SOG's Ribbons is also so beautiful! And that gold foil doilie in the middle is also from SOG.

I colored the image first, and then looked up the current Facebook challenge. Wouldn't you know it? The theme is Trash your Stash - Use up your ribbon!! He he! So Ribbons will be the image for the ribbon challenge, and then I added some lace trim and lilac ribbon as well! Ties off the romantic feel, don't ya think (Some PUN intended, buwhahahaha)?

Till tomorrow, peeps!!

Life is "Berry Sweet" at the Greeting Farm.

Hi everyone! I'm up on the TGF blog today! Here's my excerpt:


"Good Monday morning to you all!

It's Rinne here, and it's time to highlight a Print & Cut kit. This time, it's all about the Berry Sweet Daily Life.

What's great about these Print & Cut files is it's so versatile. They were originally designed for the girly-ness in all of us, but as you can see, they pretty much work for this page of my boys, right? And see the strip of the "Kiss Kiss" paper on the left? You can make your own patterned paper using these kits! All I did was open Word, and copied and pasted, then printed. Voila! I also layered some of the labels and images together to create my own "embellies."

The Berry Sweet Daily Life elements aren't just for pocket-style scrapbooking. They could also be used for traditional scrapbooking or even cards and 3D projects. Above is a lay-out I made of my friend and niece. This one is truly for a girl :)."

Stamps used are 1 & 2: From the Super Secret Stamp Club : Day Out and Cheeky Sweet and 3: Ian from the set of New Mommy and Daddy (can't find the link, but it's one of the older stamp sets of Anya and Ian).

Other items also used are:

1. Page protector - from Becky Higgin's Project Life line.

2. Other paper embellishments - Amy Tangerine.

3. Cardstock - Bazzill.

4. Copic Markers, writing pen - Project Life.


Thanks so much for passing by!!

Taking me back to my clubbing days! :)

IMG_1216

Hope you are all having a wonderful Saturday so far!! It is a weekend off for moi, and I'm so excited to be spending it with some family and friends. I even got some crafting time in, yay!!

Today's card features Time for Tea Design's Festival Girl. She is fun and carefree, and I wanted the card to reflect that!

Now, although I know what music festivals are all about, I haven't actually been to one. I have, however, gone to many concerts and clubs. I chose some awesome fantasy-themed Bam-Pop papers to accompany her. She's at a Katie Perry concert, or even a rave at the Mission side of San Francisco :).

There's lots of merriment and dancing, some drinking, and maybe a couple of fun stuffed animals being thrown around by the crowd, LOL! Tee-hee! Oh, to be young again!!

Have an awesome weekend! Toodles,
