Flat Faylene came to visit.

Hi Everyone,  Most of you are familiar with Flat Stanley, but do you know about Flat Faylene? Well Gia over at littlecanvases on You Tube has started a Flat Fylene Challenge.  I loved loved loved playing with paper dolls when I was a child and I just had to jump in this challenge.
Faylene came to visit and she was determined to help me get my washy tape and small spools of ribbon in order.
Here is a video of how she helped me. Wait until you see what she brought with her to do the job.

Now a head over to You Tube and check out littlecanvases video here. There is a contest and the viewer can vote on their favorite Faylene. I would love your vote BUT only if it is your favorite. There are some really clever ladies out there. This was a lot of fun and that is the prize in itself. Oh and I am sure Faylene will be visiting me again.  So I hope you enjoy the video.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Key To My Heart
Author: Nicole C. Moore
Late at night when I'm sound asleep,
Into my heart you softly creep.
I sit and wonder how it could be,
But you must have stumbled across the key.
This key holds the secret to true 
love and more,
So take it now and unlock the door.
And I pray that we will never part,
Now that you have the key 
to my

Raisin Boat Challenge #8

It's time for challenge #8 and our second challenge for 2013! I don't know about where you are but here in Wisconsin it has been pretty gray and drearier. We are counting the days until the first flower blooms. That is why we thought a great theme for this month's challenge would be, "Flowers."

For this month's challenge, you can use any stamp set you have (you don't have to limit your entry to Raisin Boat stamps). That's right, use any stamp set you wish for this challenge, but if you use a Raisin Boat stamp set, it will count as two entries. That gives you twice the chance to win a stamp set of your choice!

So break out those flower stamps and get started. If you are looking for some new flowers to add to your collection or you want to rent one check out the wonderful collection Raisin Boat has in stock Here.

You can link up you card at the Raisin Boat Blog.  Look for this button.
If you need any help please let me know.

I look forward to your "Flower" creations for this challenge! Here are two cards I created.

I used BloomTiki Hut card stock and Memento Ink for both cards. All can be found in the Raisin Boat store.

Here is a video to show you how I colored the image.

Thanks for stopping and have a wonderful crafty day.

LESSology Challenge 22 How Charming!

Hi everyone, It is time for Challenge #22 at LESSology. We have a fun challenge this month called How Charming and we want to see charms on your up-cycled project.
We have a wonderful prize for you this month. This month's sponsor is Design Team member Julie Tucker-Wolek who has generously donated a $20 gift certificate to Elle's Studio!:)

My project  started with an old legal folder. I created a pocket for a swap I am in over at YPP called "Thinking of You" Angel Pocket.  I sprayed the folder with some glimmer sprays and a stencil made from an overhead.

I made some of my charms using shrink plastic.

Some of the charms were off of an old frame. Charm are fun to use and really add a lot to a tag or card.
Here is the video telling all about my creations.

I hope you will join us this month.  Add some charms to an up-cycled project and link it up here at the LESSology Challenge blog.

Have fun creating!
