E.A.D Blog Hop!

 If you are just getting started, go back to the E.A.D Designs blog so you don't miss anything but hopefully you made your way here from Amy's fun blog!

Today I have a couple random but bold and easy cards to share. 

On this first card I used a sticker from the Your B-Day Stickerz and placed it under a clear frame. Then I added a bunch of bling, tied a bow, and called it good!  

This card uses the Thank You sentiment from the Sentiments Vinyl Rub-ons sheet.  Then I inked the edges and applied all the glittery flowers and butterfly.  So quick and simple! 

Keep on hoping to see what the talented Amy T is up to! :)

Scrabble Tile FRAMES!

As most of you know I went a little crazy creating with Scrabble Tiles but then one day I got this fun idea in my head and went with it.  I LOVE the way it turned out!  I also love that I will be able to swap out the photo after every trip we take to Disneyland! (Can you tell my girls were a little tired and hot that day?? We aren't used to California weather anymore.)

I even hand cut and stitched the little felt hearts too.

I am currently working on making more frames for a holiday trunk show I will be attending in Portland but I thought I would let my blog readers have first dibs.  If anyone out there is an avid Disney lover like us or knows someone who is, these frames will make the perfect holiday gift.  Please leave me a comment or send an email and I will get you more details on price and colors.  Please note that every frame will be unique because no two tiles are the same! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Look at this fun color challenge! I love all these photos..I spy Washi Tape! ;) 

I was flipping thru my stack of E.A.D Designs Stickerz  and noticed that the Celebrate the Season Stickerz matched the colors for this challenge! I made a card similar to this one HERE but these ornaments are so easy to make adorable cards with! 
Here is a little tip too.  Only one ornament comes with a chain, so I just cut it into two pieces and hid the ends under the yarn! :) 

I hope you find time to play along for a fabulous E.A.D Designs Prize! 

On a completely random note: I forgot to share my halloween photo!  I have seen so many other adorable little mario brothers around blog land, I wanted to share our photo too! :D


Go to the E.A.D Designs blog to see more!

E.A.D Designs Blog Hop!!

Hey! I'm first on the Blog Hop Today!  Be sure to check out with E.A.D Designs blog to see what's going on in the world of vinyl (did you ever notice they have a monthly coupon code on the right side bar?!) and now on with the hop!

The other day I had like 6 cards to mail out! EEK!  I always turn to my trusty Stickerz and Torendi products to bust out some fun cards! 

This card was for my brother in laws birthday! I don't make cards for boys often but this card turned out pretty hip! The paper is from the Pink Paislee Old School Collection and I used 3 different E.A.D Designs products. The "cool" dude is from the Punk Doodles, the "scribble" are from the Music Doodles and Happy Birthday is on the Sentiments Rub-ons sheet. I know I have said this before but I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Doodles! oh yeah, and the glitter letters are by Sassafras!

This card I was just experimenting with some plum and cranberry washi tape! I added on the E.A.D Designs Thank You sentiment and it was done! This card would be perfect to mass produce and you customize it with the color of tapes you choose! 

Ok, before I send you off, I just wanted to give you a quick reminder that Torendi has a challenge ending tomorrow and nobody has entered!!  The holiday planning is upon us and everyone is busy busy busy, but if you can find the time to play, you have really good odds of winning! :) 

Ok, off you go to the oh so wonderful Amy T's blog! ENJOY!

E.A.D Designs COLOR CHALLENGE - Retro Christmas!

I LOVE THESE COLORS!! Especially for Christmas...I want that little pink tree! It reminds me of when I was little, my parents would get me my own little pink flocked tree for my room! :)

I hope you play along with the E.A.D Designs Color Challenge this month!  You could win a $20 gift certificate to the store!!!

Here is what I came up with.  I was trying to make it look like a window display...with the stickerz under the plastic frame and the lights on top. 

Here is a full look at the Retro Christmas Stickerz! Aren't they fun??

And this would be all I am seeing lately!  I think I may start dreaming about scrabble!  Check back soon to see what I am up to!

Torendi Second Tuesday Blog Hop!

Are you enjoying the hop so far?  I hope so!  If you didn't find your way here from the amazingly talented Amy's Blog, please go and start at the Torendi Blog! I wouldn't want you to miss any of the Torendi goodness!  

Ok, so I have a small obsession...and's not Scrabble Tiles THIS TIME! 
It's finding fun things for my Torendi Kawaii Rub-ons to say! I just find it so amusing! LOL
Thankfully Emily at E.A.D Designs takes custom orders, so I pulled a few strings (hehe) and had some fun sentiments stickerz made !

First up I combined the kawaii girl and sentiment with some plum washi tape and the Thicker that are featured in the Torendi "Bright" kit. (This kit is HALF OFF!!) Of course this card is for my hot hubby! 

Then I thought this sentiment was way too funny and had to use it right away.  Of course it is referring to the flowers. *wink wink* The paper on this card is from the new Pink Paislee "Sweetness" line, even though it's super girlie, I LOVE IT! 

Unfortunately you have reached the end of the hop!  I hope you are going to find some inspiration from our hop and play along with the new Torendi Challenge!  Find all the info on the Torendi blog today!

E.A.D Designs Blog Hop - Inspired by Teri Anderson!

Hooray! It's a Go to Gal inspired hop!
If you are just getting started, go back to the E.A.D Designs blog so you don't miss anything but hopefully you made your way here from Amy's fun blog! Today we pulled our inspiration from the fabulously talented Teri Anderson!   

Here is Teri's cute Holiday card!

And here is my take on it!  I used the same basic layout as she did. The sentiment is from the "Christmas Sentiments 1" rub-ons and the reindeer is from the Merry n Bright Stickerz. The paper is the   "Old School" Pink Paislee Line available at  Torendi

Here is a close look at the adorable reindeer I popped off the card.

Be sure you leave comments on all the blogs today! You will be entered to win this month's Monthly Steal!! 

Have a great Monday!

All Alice!

Oh Alice! It's so hard for me not to collect every little Alice in Wonderland themed thing I see! I had this problem before naming my daughter Alice and now I just have an extra excuse!  I did good though...I only picked up this adorable pouch in Japan Town the other day and there were so many other Alice things to buy.  The pouch is filled with kawaii stickers (I will probably never use them...must hoard!)! 

Then I sat down and made a couple Alice in Wonderland themed cards!  I used the Alice and Wonderland Stickerz from E.A.D Designs and the Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Stamps from Torendi.

"Card" card

"White Rabbit" card

Sadly the Alice Stamps are sold out but they also come in Little 3 Pigs and Hansel and Gretel!

There are also some new SALE ITEMS in the Torendi Shop! 

Thanks for stopping by! What's your obsession?

Is it beginning to look a lot like Christmas?  :D  I hope you are getting in the holiday spirit from the themed blog hop today.  If you are just getting started, go back to the E.A.D Designs blog so you don't miss anything but hopefully you made your way here from Amy's fun blog!

I showed you a couple cards I colored with Tria Markers a week and a half ago (DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE HUGE GIVEAWAY!! YOU HAVE UNTIL TOMORROW TO ENTER!!  GO HERE!!) and today I have some similar cards with an E.A.D flair to them! 

Again, I used the Lawn Fawn stamps but I paired it up with an E.A.D Designs Sentiment from the Deck the Halls Stickerz.  After I colored in the lights with Tria Markers, I covered them with Glossy Accents so they would be shiny! 

I love this card!! I think the ornaments on the kraft paper look SO GOOD! The ornaments and sentiment are from the Celebrate the Season Stickerz.  

Again, I used the same stamps but left the card with a black and white theme so that the Sticker would stand out even more. 

Hop along and see what Holiday Cheer Amy T. has to share with you today!

A big welcome to the November Guest Designer, YVONNE!
