I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

Dallas Stampede Calling Card

Happy Friday to All! I am on my way to Dallas for the Stampede. HOORAY! So I thought I would share with you the Calling Cards I made for the Stampede.

The Cactus images is From the Hero Arts Howdy Stamp set.

The Mermaid is compiled from cuts from several different cartridges. I used my gypsy to get the sizing right on the cuts. For the top half of the Mermaid, I cut the girl from Rock Princess pg. 34. I cut off her legs (eek!) and removed the guitar from her hands. I also cut her shirt, face, arms, and hair.

Her tail was cut from Dreams Come True pg. 32. I used glimmer mist in Key Lime Pie on both pieces of her tail.

The scarf is from Old West pg. 35. I flipped the image and used my hide contour feature to remove some of the cuts, as I was cutting that image VERY small.

Finally her hat and its band was cut from Once Upon a Princess pg.41. I used Glimmer Mist in Pearl on the Hat pieces.

The seahorse is from Life's a Beach, Pg. 69. I only cut the base layer for the seahorse, as most of it would be hidden. I Inked the edges of the seahorse with Colorbox Ink in Cyan. I also used Sea Glass Glimmer Mist on it, and used a gem for the eye that I colored myself with my Bic Mark-its.

I made her little Lasso with Hemp.

Hope you enjoyed my Calling Card. I hope to swap these out and recieve tons of cards from my fellow Circlets in Dallas! Hope to see you there!

Have a Great and Crafty Week!
