That window up there is fabric paper. I've forgotten how much I love working with those! This is the time when I wish I could sew from a sewing machine to add trim. But I do love how the fabric is coming apart at the it more texture!

Have a fabulous day, everyone!!!

I've been on the Naughty List...

Good morning, peeps! How have you all been??

Me? I've been BAD. Very, very bad!! If you hadn't noticed, I haven't blogged much at all. I've been fulfilling my DT committments and have been crafty but I've just been lazy about laying it all in here. I've been doing lots of Project Life (I'm only a week or two behind), but I have not been making a lot of cards. I'm happy that I'm getting to do my One Little Word, and that is Document. I just really, really need to stop being lazy and post about the pics and my process on it.

Btw, if you haven't heard about Project Life, you can view more info about it here:

Anyway, back to business. Today's post is really about Christmas Card Challenges. This week (#13), it's all about Santa Claus!

I used this Meoples' No Peeking Santa image from All That Scraps.

Please visit the CCC blog for more DT inspiration!! Have a great week!

Scallops and Chinese New Year.


Hi everyone!!

I have been a BAAAADDDD blogger! I went from three posts a week to just one! So sorry I've neglected you, Blogspot. But I have been busy cheating on you with my long time infatuation, Facebook, and my new love, Instagram!

I'm hoping to catch up soon with posting about Project Life too! I have been pretty good about it. I'm just one to one and a half weeks behind. I accidentally didn't see my order of pictures through so I had to re-order them again a little later than usual. I've bought the new Canon Selphy so I really need to start using that. It's just so convenient with your phone!

Anyway, it's time for Christmas Card Challenges (#11). The challenge is to incorporate scallops into your design. I've got several ones going on up there :).

The image is from All That Scraps' No Peeking Meoples. I usually outline the image with a gray-colored Copic to make it pop out more. But I kept seeing this dot/ stippling technique. So it turned out like this. I really like it. I think it brings the colors together.

For more on our current challenge and awesome inspiration, please visit the CCC blog.

Happy Chinese New Year, everyone!!!

Gingerbread and Football.

Corinne R Mercado

Good mornin' peeps!

I hope you aren't getting tired of my Christmas cards just yet! I love love LOVE the Holidays so that is what I focus on when I make winter-themed cards during the year. And, my team at CCC (Christmas Card Challenges) are always supportive and inspirational that most of the time it has been easy.

For CCC's challenge this week (#10), make a card with a gingerbread theme.

I colored up the Gingerbread man from ATS' Meoples set of No Peeking. He is just adorable! Wanted to play with lots of different patterns and graphics this week. I really like how the card turned out. I even went back to my hand-writing the sentiment.

I really enjoyed looking at what everyone else came up with for the challenge! The other DTs and I have got different styles, but I love all of their creations. Check them out on the CCC blog.

Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!

Oh, and happy Superbowl Sunday!! Go Niners!!! Woot woot!!!!

Fall (in) Love.


Hello again!

Here's my second card featuring the new release of Time for Tea Designs! This card features Fall Love. I just love her expression and I want her sweater! So cute and flirty with the one shoulder off, don't you think?

The stamps can be bought from Joanna Davies' etsy shop. Her digi stamps are very pretty and adorable! Hope you can stop by her blog - she is hosting a digi launch contest. All you have to do is be a follower of her blog, link back to her post, and put her badge on your side bar, and you can win one of her new digis!

I made this card very graphic with the mixtures of those patterns. The sentiment stamp is from Kelly Purkey. Hee hee, I'm finding it weird that I only buy sentiment stamps from scrapbooking celebrities :).

And speaking of KP and fall(ing in) love, I saw this on her blog and absolutely loved it!



New DT and stamps at Time for Tea Designs!

IMG_7745 (2)

Hello all!!

One of my Instagram buddies, Joanna, launched a new digital stamp release today. Her blog and etsy store are both called Time for Tea Designs.

Her stamps are super cute and pretty! Personally, they remind me a bit of a cross between Saturated Canary and Some Odd Girl. :) They are fun to color and with digi stamps, they are easy to store and resize! For this card, I used the Heart Balloon image and the Deconstructed Sketch # 87. Have you noticed the papers? "Vintage" Basic Grey Perhaps from 2007. Yay for using up old supplies!

Stay tuned for another post featuring a new Time for Tea Designs stamp later. BTW, Joanna is having a Digi Launch Competition! Be a follower of her blog, share her post, include a link back to her blog on your side bar, and you can win a free digi!

See you soon!
