New Kit: Mardi Gras

Did you ever wonder why the Mardi Gras colors were chosen?  
Rex, the king of the carnival, selected the official Mardi Gras colors in 1872 to honor the visiting Russian Grand Duke Alexis Alexis Alexandrovich Romanoff, whose house colors were purple, green and gold.
Purple Represents Justice. Green Represents FaithGold Represents Power.
I don't know about you but I just love the colors purple, green and gold!  They make for a stunning layout!  This kit will be so much fun to put together!  It comes with everything you see here to make the layout such as: Glitter Cardstock, 3 sheets of cardstock, 2 have been pre-stamped for you, printed paper, Custom printed paper. It has lots of bling, coins, sequins, feathers and mirrors to add to all this fun! Have you ever wondered how to use the mesh ribbon on a layout, well here you go!  It is very easy to work with and I just love it!   Oh and don't forget these 2 super cool chipboard masks that you will get.  They will be spraymisted, stickled and painted for you!
Kit price: $22.00
Instructions and Video will be included in the kit price! I have 10 left and will bring to Croppin' on the Red.

Upcoming Events

Croppin' on the Red has been moved to March 12-15th weekend. I have been asked for the second time to make the layout for the theme.  I just love the Cat in the this was super fun to make!  As soon as I get off work I am headed to the crop with some friends to have a scrappy good time! I can't wait! 

 I am also going on a little beach scrap weekend in a few weeks and can I tell you...I have nothing planned for either of these trips....I better get busy!

April 23rd weekend is the 1st Annual 2 Crafty Chicks Event in Sulphur.  We have been super busy getting ready for this event!  We've had a tremendous amount of interest in the crop which is amazing!  We have so much planned for these ladies.  We will have tons (and I mean tons) of doorprizes, a contest with amazing prizes, pizza and pj party, zumba, vendors, massage therapist on site, make in takes, pictures with a photographer, games and so much more.  The shirts and sussies are fantastic! We can't wait!  The crop is sold out, but please if you are interested in getting on the waiting list we will try very hard to help you join in on our fun if there should be some cancellations.

We're all mad....

Another fun clock that I made.  I knew when I saw this print I had to get it.  It was way out of our decorating budget for the crop, but I went ahead and splurged and bought if for myself.  I figured I would go ahead and get the bigger print being that I was going to keep it in my scraproom.  It will forever be a memory of the 1st annual 2 Crafty Chicks Event!  

 I took the clock apart, by the second clock I wasn't as nervous about taking it apart.  The first clock turned out fine, works like a charm.  I hand cut the picture out and mod podged it to the clock that is from Hobby Lobby.  I added all kinds of fun things such as pearls, pearl pens, stickles, swarovski crystals, bling, minature deck of cards to make this a fun and whimiscal item.
I just received a huge order from Leaky Shed for my Snow kit and I forgot I had ordered some keys.  I think I will have to add one to this clock and I may take a small picture of Amy and I and add to the bottom of the clock once the crop is over.  It will be a great memory for me!  We are super excited about the crop and the amount of interested.  It's going to be phenomenal!!!

Don't Be Such a CRAB

Well its almost Christmas and I wanted to get mybrother and his wife a gift but I was at a loss when searching for the perfect gift.  I just so happened to be bringing a huge stickle order to this artist that painted this crab and I just knew when I saw this print it would be a great gift for them, as they live on the coast in Galveston.  Actually they live 2 blocks from the beach, you can hear the water from their palapas.  I imagine it must be a wonderful place to live.

 I went to Hobby Lobby and bought the clock and took it all apart. I was nervous about taking the clock hands and pieces off but had to do it!  I hand cut the artwork out and mod podged it to the center of the clock.  I added liquid pearls and stickles to the crab.  I then used my favorite technique that I used with my beach kit to make the sand and I put sand at the bottom on the clock along with some super cool shells I had.
I hope that Troy and Michelle love this as much as I loved making it!  Merry Christmas!
