Shades of Blue and Yellow!

Change of plans for today, since we woke up to frost on the car.  We decided, it was not a good day for the beach.   So I went some where I have never been instead.  And let me tell you, I was in heaven, even though I couldn't make to see the whole thing.

Where Did I go?  You guessed it, IKEA.




  Wow, what an amazing place.  First we, went up stairs and ate lunch, then down stairs to shop in the Market place.  I couldn't believe how cheap the prices were.  I was a good girl. I only spent $19 plus lunch.  I bought a big blue Ikea bag for .59 great for the beach, LOL!  A new trash can for my scrap table, pack of 3 cork trivets to set hot pans on, 2 packs of 24 cream color floating candles and a pack of nice white napkins for Daughters wedding. 

I would of loved to seen the whole place, but I couldn't walk it. I asked if they had scooters, but they dont, But she did tell me they have wheel chairs, but my arms aren't strong enough to move myself with my fibromyalgia.  So we only did the bottom floor, and will do the next floor next time.

But I had fun, and loved that place.  Now only if I had the funds to really enjoy it, LOL!

Be on the look out for some Awesome News Soon!

Wedding Invitations are DONE!

Ha, Made you look! LOL! (Sorry, no pictures!)

Okay, so we finished the Wedding Invitations today.  Sandy's Reverse Print and Cut worked wonderful. And man, are they heavy, they have many layers. Have to see how much they cost to mail. Good thing we are only mailing 2. The rest are hand delivered.

Alright, so as you may have guessed, this is not a traditional wedding, My Daughter and Fiance are Country and Western, like to hunt, every friday is Bonfire night with all the friends you can gather. This is a small wedding for all their close friends, and just the parents of the bride and groom. That's how they want it.

I can tell you, this will  NOT be like those Red Neck weddings you see on TV. It will be nice and casual evening wedding. With lots of lights and candles.

I can't tell you all the details, I have been sworn to secrecy till after the wedding.   I can't share any pictures of the invitations, Flowers, or any thing else we are making till after. So in about 2.5 month, I can post pictures, and I can list the file for the Wedding Invitations in the store.  

One invitation was given out last night, and they loved it, and said, they should of had us make theirs last year. So that's a good sign.  LOL!

Does any one know where to find embossed white wrapping paper, I bought some last year to wrap the friends wedding present in, and it was beautiful and now, cant find it any where, I think it was made by hallmark.  I need it for a project, and cant find it any where. Still looking.

Have a great night, off to work on some thing else.

Do you need a laugh?

You have got to read this poem that was posted on the JustRite Stampers typepad post.

I laughed so hard. Here it is.

Twas the night before Christmas,
I’m glued to the tree.
I’m wondering what Santa brought just for me.
Could it be cardstock or ink pads or lace?
Or some stamps, I said, with a smile on my face.
And that’s when I heard him ... “Hi Santa” I said
He replied, “You know ... good girls should be in their beds”.
“I know I should Santa and now I’ve been caught.
But I was just so excited to see what you brought”
“Well, let’s take a look in this room where you work”.
He shook his head quickly, and left with a jerk.
I heard him exclaim as he put it in gear.
“You’ve got enough crap, I’ll see you next year!

Here's hoping that Santa doesn't see your craft rooms and that tomorrow he brings you lots of  GREAT NEW TOYS!!  
Merry Christmas from the JustRite Team!!

Did you laugh as hard as I did?

Sharon

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

To you and your family.

Its a busy day here at the Mobley house.  We got baking really late, so today is a busy day baking.  Need to finish wrapping presents.  And start on the deviled eggs for tomorrows dinner.  DD already went to Krispy Kreme Donut this morning and waited in that long line to get donuts for tomorrows breakfast. They kids have always wanted donuts for breakfast, so they could rip into the gifts.  Well, they are now 24 and 20 and still want donuts for breakfast. Hey, that's all right with me, one less meal to cook tomorrow.  And nothing is better then Krispy Kreme donuts.

Need to finish baking, and take a goodie basket to my brother and my sick neighbor.  After dinner and the house is clean, I can rest, and start organizing all my new nestabilities. Merry Christmas from me to me, LOL!

Have a wonderful day with our Family and Friends.

Christmas Card #2 with new file in store

This card was inspired by a file request by one of my Creative team members.  She asked for some thing with a Door and garland. may be 2 little trees.

So this is what I came up with, I do love it.  Its very detailed, and took me a long time to design and change. To make it a better cutting file with fewer parts.  If you know me. You know I love details, and paper piecings.

This file has,  A red door, with a framed window and bottom door pannels.  Door frame is in 2 layers, Garland drapes the door frame, with red bows,  Wreath hangs on the door window with red bow.  2 Small trees in brown planters with red box,  And I added to black lamp post with yellow lighting, and if you look close you can see white light bulbs inside.



I used white card, with Red mat and White mat embossed with cuttle bug folder.   Red sheer ribbon on the side.  Let me tell you, when you have embossed cardstock, its hard to get it to stay put, but if you use score tape, its wonderful and keeps its hold.


Here is a close up, you can see, I used different textures of bazzill paper.  I used Christmas Red stickles on the red bows, and dots on wreath.  I used Silver Jelly Roll pen on the light bulbs in the lamp post.  All the bows adn wreath are on mini pop dots.

This card is stunning in person.

I just added this card to my store, and it included in my sale that last till the 31st.  "Chrismas Door"  RM00038

Thanks for stopping by!

Chrstmas Ornaments and Freebie file

Hope you all had a great weekend,  I was pretty busy making new ornaments for my Christmas tree and then working on the homemade Wedding Invitations. now half done.

I seen this posted on one of the KNK groups. And just fell in love with them, So had to give it a try. And have to say, it was really easy, and I think they turned out beautiful.
Here is the website that was posted on the KNK group. Crafty Gift Glitter Ornaments


I used Clear glass ornaments with a iridescent glow, White ribbon with clear beads already on it, Sheer organza ribbon, White vinyl to cut the words. Future floor wax and Martha Stewart Blue, Silver and White iridescent fine glitter.

I did this and made 12 and all went well on first try, So I will tell you what I did.

I bought the 4 packs of clear bulbs at Michael  50% off.
Take the plastic cover off and sit the bulbs upright in the tray.
Remove the clip and cap, carefully.
Squirt some "Future Floor Wax" in side one bulb.

Swirl around with thumb or tape over then, sit in try, for a second, to let the floor wax run to the bottom, then swirl again, making sure you don't Shake or you will get bubbles.

After the second swirl, pour in to the next bulb and wait for it to stop dripping.

Then immediately pour in your glitter, make sure you use enough.

Cover the top with tape and your thumb.  Shake and turn till all is coated.  Set in tray.

Now take the one in tray with "Future Floor Wax"  swirl, set in tray till it drains to bottom, swirl again, pour in to next clear bulb till it stops dripping,

Take ornament with glitter in it, and pour the excess in to the one you just swirled.  And shake, Add more glitter if need be.

Continue. Till your done.

 Some other tips.  Get the big jars of MS glitter, One will do several ornaments, and still have left over.  If you use the little bottles that come in the sets.  One whole bottle will only do 4 with tiny bit left over.   Use fine glitter or the nest size up, but don't use regular chunky glitter.

For the ribbon with the beads, I bought it at Michael in the bead section, its like 9 feet or some thing. Use a coupon on it.  Take a hot glue gun, put glue around the cap, attach the ribbon, and go around, mine only had 3 strands of beads around, So I cut it off, and moved around and places the beads center of the ones on there, and hot glue the ribbon on, so now I have 6 strands of beads and looks better.

Then take 2 strands of ribbon, and make a bow. and one more to make the hanger,

If you want to put vinyl words on your ornaments, I suggest doing that first.  Before you glitter.

I have included the file I made with the words on my ornaments.  Now, I have only cut these in vinyl and it was a little tricky to weed and apply, so go slow, and use caution.


RM00106 Ornament Vinyl Words  Freebie , AI, GSD, KNK, MTC,  SVG &WPCv14  (File Now In Store Here)


I love how these look, so think  I will cut out of paper and edit if needed,  and will post that later.

Hope you make some and post back.

Thanks for stopping by!
Sharon

I hope this is easy for you to understand, Sorry, I forgot to take step by step pictures.  If I make some more, I will take some pictures.


EDIT: This file now in store.

JustRite Stampers Storage

If you are like me,  you love Justrite Stampers, and have collected many sets.  Well, in the past month, I have bought my first 6 sets and some will be here tomorrow. 

So I figured I better get them organized, as most come in blister packs, and no way to keep them together after they are open.

I got to thinking about it, and decided to incorporate it in to my current stamping system.  Using the clear DVD cass.  And it works beautifuly. This is how they look inside the case. this is 2 different cases just to show you how they fit.  I used score tape on the back, and the stamps stick to it. 



I then cut the front package to fit the front of the case, and used double sided tape to adhear to the inside. So I know what the stamps are.






Then I used my lable machine to put the name of the set and the size block it needs on the side.




I can now stand them up on th shelf with the rest of my stamps. I have in these Super Jewel Box King DVD Cases.(4th one down on that page)  the more you order the cheaper per case they are.



And when, im ready to pack up and go to my friend Jill C.  House,  I put them in this cool carry case I got on clearance at walmart for 3.00.  All my justrite stamps, blocks and fonts fit, even room for embossing powders, cards, heat gun.  Oh, The white label on the wood stampers, I put on there the size font it will take on the outside,  the one in the picture shoes 6pt. & 15 pt border.  Others say, all size font center, design border only.

How do you like my Justrite stampers storage.  How do you store yours.

Thanks for stopping by,

Cloud 9!

Yep! that's what im on after buying this paper kit, well, make that the last 4 they had, LOL!

I had to run to biglots this morning, and they had so much cool scrapbooking stuff. But, being on a strick budget, I had to restist buying it all.  And had to choose wisely.  Well,  I picked up this beautiful Christmas paper kit my Cloud 9 Designs called "Christmas Joy!.  It's so beautiful, yep, its red and green, but its the darker colors, like vintage and I like that.  This kit, has 273 pieces. 

You get::
6 double sided cardstock grade patteren paper
1 sheet of Alphabet & Number stickers
1 sheet of Rub-on elements and stiches
1 sheet of shiny rain dots
6 double sided Cardstock Quote cards
3 Sparkly Diecuts (Poinsettia and Reindeer)
2 feet of silk ribbon (1' each of red and green)

Its some of the prettiest paper I have ever seen,   Can you guess how much the kit was,  Get this.  $1.50, yep, that's it, so I got the last 4 for $6. Not bad right,  Im thinking of using this for my DD Christmas cook book of our favorite christmas recipes.

I couldnt find this paper kit online, took a picture, hopefully you can see it okay.  I did find the matching stickers and stamp set, but dont think I need those.





If your by a big lots stop and check them out, ours (Plant City, FL) had several good buys I passed up. Like, Beautiful paper kits $5.  Already finished baby boy and girl scrapbooks 8x8 i think, for $5.  Heidi grace embossed fancy chipboard 1.50, matching stickers as well.  Marth stewart ribbon pack of 6 2yard rolls (total 12 yard or 36 feet) $3 a pk,  Different colors.  I had to pass.  I did get one roll of 5 feet of MS silk white ribbon for $1.  So spent $7 on scrapping today, I was a good girl.

Sunday they went to our local state park and had the engagement pictures taken.  With a photographer that is just starting her website. Name of her website is  Lisa Hunt Photography, (Click link to see photos of Melissa & Hector)  and looking at the picture she has added so far, They are beautiful.  She is trying all kinds of photo editing to see which we like best.  One of these pictures will be on the Wedding invitations.  I think there are more pictures to be added so keep checking back.

Aren't the pictures beautiful, and they look so happy. 

Love you Melissa & Hector.

Freebie Poinsettia 1& 2 file

This isn't the file I had plan for the freebie.  I woke up not feeling to well. So decided instead of missing the freebie today, I would just take one I really like from a file Im working on.

So for today, here is your freebie file.  This is 2 different poinsettia flowers, the flowers are the same but the green leaves are different, I couldn't decide which one I liked better, so I used both, but in 2 different files, LOL!

Each one has 2 red layers to cut in 2 shades of red,  and 2 green layers to cut in 2 different shades of green.

Now, you may think this is a simple file, but think of every thing you can do with it.  Off the top of my head, Im thinking, of how lovely these would be if you cut them larger and pop dotted the layers and put them on your christmas tree.  Or even get more creative and use a hole punch in the middle and slip over a White, Red or Yellow light.  How pretty would that be.  You can also use on your cards or scrapbook pages.  The project im working on, I used my score pal to create lines in the leaves, and used cuttle bug folder as well.  Just to change it up.  Will post a picture in a few days, when Im feeling better.




UPDATE: 


So what can you do with this file.  Poinsettia 1 & 2 
Password is rsmobleysdesigns_IAGTU No time limit on this file for now.  Enjoy!


File includes: KNK, GSD, AI, WPCv14 and SVG set.

Also, I dont know if im getting out there to AI, WPC and SVG users. So please pass my blog link (Not the file) to others so they dont miss this file and other.

Baby Boy Card

I had the honor of attending a baby shower of a friend.  She is expecting her first child in Feb. A baby boy, no name yet.   I made this card for her.  She is also a scrapbooker so I hope she likes this card.



I used my new Justrite Stampers Baby Stamp Ensemble set. I got on sale for $5.00.  Its so cute, I also used my Spell binders Oval Nestabilities and Scallop Oval.  I watched this video on how to center your Justrite stampers just perfect with the Nest. As they were made to go together. Check out this video, it works so good. I still need some practice with the sizing of the nest with the stamps but not bad for first try.

The card was inspiration from this card I fell in love with it.  So had to make one similar.

I used blue DCWV for the card.  Stripe paper is Target dollar bin, Winter blues Christmas paper. White cardstock is Joanns, and embossed with Cuttle bug embossing folder "Baby Words".  and lightly inked with Adirondak Denium blue. Grass stamp by Rubber Stampede "Prairie Grass" and ink SU Mellow Moss and Certainly Celery.   Stamps images are from Autumn Leaves "Mindy's Zoo". These are so cute!  Images are colored with Tombow water color markers on water color paper. And heat imbossed. I colored a couple images and pop dotted the heads. Blue bear ribbon is from dollar bin at Michaels.  Other things used, Score tape, Score pal.

Hope you like it,
Sharon

Freebie 3D Snowflake3

Here is the 3rd snowflake.  This one has lots of details so cut slow.  There are little 6 point stars on this one, and detail points on the ends.

Sorry this one looks a little flat, My cat decided it was comfortable. LOL!

Freebie file includes : KNK, AI, GSD, WPCv14 & SVG

This file  3D Snowflake3 file can be downloaded until midnight tonight, Wed 02.

Thank you for downloading my free file.  Its no longer available and will be in store soon.


This is a side view so you can see the detail, Remember to cut this slow.


Remember, you can cut this larger and just use one piece as a spinner on a swivel and fishing line or ribbon.
Hope you like it.

New files in store

I posted 2 new, well old but new files in store. I Found these in my files, and converted them to all file types.

The first is the very first file I made when I got my KNK GE software. Its pretty simple but pretty if you like snowflakes, this title is for you. I cut it out and used star dust stickles on the snowflakes and on the tops of the letters, it so pretty, Hard to show that in the pictures.    Snow Flake Title



This next new old file is my first Christmas Overlay, as you can see, I created this back in 2007. But I have made 2 new titles, one for 2008 and 2009 so you have your choice of what year.





Also, If you have bought my Overlays before, then you know, I create file types for all size machines.  In the file zip fo this file, you will have a folder for KNK, AI, GSD, WPCv14 and SVG.  You will have 2 files in each one.  The first file with extention _1_ will be the normal file, with the whole overlay.  The second file with extention_2_ will have the split overlay, so that you can cut this on your smaller machine, like the Robo , WB, SIL ,Cricut or KNK Element.  And still get a full 12 x 12 overlay.  For example in this picture, the cut is in the middle and underneath the Holly at the top and the present at the bottom.  No one will ever know you cut it on a small machine.

Look for more files in store in the next few days.

Trip to Michaels and Stuff

Today, I went to Michaels because they had some good sales. But I was on a mission for Red and Green Paper. You see, Im a blue and white chrismas kind of girl, But all 10 of my new christmas files I designed last week, are in Red and Green, And since I dont use those color paper. And I test cut every single file in the proper colors. I had to go get some red and green paper. LOL!

I also got some of the clear glass ornaments that were half off, and Martha Stewart micro glitter in blue of course, I have most of her other colors, to make some adorable ornaments, and might just cut some vinly words for them, also picked up some embossed white boarders for my daughters wedding ablum, and used the 20% coupon for all martha stewart stuff.

Then went to biglots to let my DH pick out new lights, he was tired of the white icicles hanging lights, he wanted some color in the yard, so what did he pick, Yep, Blue. LOL! These are pretty cool, they are actual icles and are blue LED lights, so going to hang them with the white lights, So now, the outside matches the inside, LOL!

Will post a picture later this week. When they are up.

Dont forget, today is the last day for the Black Friday and weekend sale at the VDBC. And I would like to thank you all that have purchased my files. It means so much to know others like my files.

I will have a new freebie for you in a few days.

Free 3D Snowflake2 file

Sorry for posting this late today, We have been with out comcast internet since 9pm last night, and it just came on about an hour before the guy was to show up. So im running a little behind.

Here is the 3D snowflake number 2, Plain and simple, I used Joanns cardstock on this and it does real well, We are making some and using fishing swivels and ribbon to allow them to spin.



File includes: KNK, GSD, AI, WPCv14 & SVG, as well as instruction sheet.
File no longer available, Look for in store soon

Also, you can use these 3D Snowflakes for other things like, Hanging spinners, using one of the 6 sections. We just re-sized it and made a bigger template, and did the same folding, but didn't connect them, Using fishing swivels and ribbon or fishing line to hang so they spin freely, You can also connect several with more swivels. Or make a boarder, several uses with these.



Im working on Snowflake number 3 as well as a bunch of christmas files, need to get test cut and posted to store.

Have a great day!

Creative Team Sample

My friend Jill C. is very creative and does beautiful work, So I made a deal with her to be my creative team. This is her first sample using my Trick or Treat Overlay RM00002

She wanted to do a layered picture frame to hang on her wall. So she asked me to alter the file a little bit, and make the ground a little wavy and remove the words at the top and adjust the farm so you didnt see the words. Then She used 3 overlays and Layered them with pop dots.




The windows are crackled using Tim Holtz' Rock Candy Crackle Paint. Then she used Black Diamond Stickles to frame the windows and to add a frosty look to the roof as well as using them to give the owl some dimension. Violet Pearl Ex was used to give the smokey effects in the sky and around the moon.



Rock Candy Stickles make the little ghost a happy boy and Prima leaves finish off the project.



Flourish is from EK and Happy Holloween is a iron on flocked word, dont know from where.
The finished size is 12 x 12 and is put into a scrapbooking frame purchased at Joann's.



This turned out so beautiful. Thank you Jill for using my file.

Freebie 3D Snowflake File

I love Snowflakes but only as decorations, LOL! No way do I want any snow, I like my white stuff on the beach. Clean white sand,like on Anna Maria Island. I love the beach.

But at Christmas time, I don't do the red and green, I do white, blue and silver with Snowmen and Snowflakes. And yes, all my wrapping paper matches, lol.

So I tried making a snowflake in KNK and have to say, Im Snowflake challenged, LOL! So was looking around the net and got some ideas for a 3D snowflake, you cant mess that up, right?

So here is my first version of a 3D snowflake, I think its pretty cool. Im working on some others, so be on the look out for those in a few days. Im getting cought up slowly, if that is possible. I need to squeez in some christmas cards, and start on Wedding decorations.



File is no longer available, check store soon.


It looks like its really detailed but believe me, its really easy to put together, After cutting the file, It only took like 5 minutes to put together. I used Tacky glue from AC More. I like it, you put a little on, hold for 10 seconds and its stuck. It holds paper products really well.


Dont for get to stop by the VDBC forum and play along in my challenge this week for a chance to win 1, 2 or 3 of my files.

Thank you for stopping by!

Stickles: Cinnamon and Eucalyptus
Gold brads, Pop dots, Zots,

Love this card.

Thanks for Looking,

Notice any thing different?

Hmm! What could it be:

New files in store?
No post in a couple Days?
New Inkadinkado stamp?

Yes is the answer to all those but that's not the differance I'm talking about. Have you figured it out yet?

Okay,I will tell you, I changed my Blog header. I used a couple of my files to make it. Im having fun playing with Paint.net. Its a lot like Adobe photoshop, which I didn't have till last week. I was at a garage sale that was posted on Craig's list and bought Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0, Adobe Illustrator 8.0, Adobe Page Maker 6.5 plus and AI Classroom in a book 8 all full versions for windows with original books and disk, and all for $30. I know they are older, but I can use these to play with and see if I like them. But until then paint.net works just great don't you think.

Now, I did add a few new fall files to store, I cant remember if I posted that or not. You can check them out "HERE" Then new fall files along with all my other files in store can be seen on the slide show on the right. Click it to see them larger or slow it down. New to store are.

Harvest of memories






Harvest of Thanks







Fall Tree Leaves







Turkey Day Traditions


I didn' make it to playing with stamps today, had a bad migraine, so will try and do that tomorrow and post my new stamps.

Good nite for now.
