Another shopping site I visit

I was looking around the web one day a few years ago as I am always on the look out for a good bargin. I came across Sky Blue Pink's blog and was surprised to find lots of neat little trinkets.

As this site doesn't look like your typical site that you would purchase from I was very skeptical. There were a few items that I wanted to try and I couldn't beat the prices. Needless to say I gave it a shot and was VERY impressed. I have ordered a few times from this site and always found the quality to be good and the staff helpful.

There are a couple of things on this site that made me stop and think. One was it is a bit confusing to look around at everything - but once you visit the site a couple time you become aware of the areas which you are most interested. The other thing that kinda threw me was the language used. The lady who runs the site refers to herself as Queen Xina and always speaks in the third person. If you can get past this the site has some amazing and unique little finds.

If you visit this site - please leave me a comment and let me know what you think of it.

The time has come....

With a move on the horizon and our home being listed I had to close up my scrapbook area....sad sad day. Needless to say posts over the next few months will be few and far between with any artwork. So bear with me and I will get back on track as soon as possible.

Since I can't post artwork, I will post some of my favourite shopping sites.

One of my favourite shopping sites is Custom Crops I find this site has almost everything that you need. I get most of my Cricut Cartridges here as they are so reasonably priced. There are so many other great products on this site as well. My favourite is you can always count on them for a good sale. My advice is to check them out.

Here are a couple cards that I made tonight. The colours don't show up well in the pic - I think I need a light box - perhaps after I move I will get on that. The colours are Twilight, Grey Wool and Olive.

This card really needs something else, but I am not sure what. Perhaps a total overhaul. lol
Any suggestions would be welcomed.
This is a template that I got from Leslie at PandaScrapper last year for Xmas. I love how it turned out - minus the glitter I spritz on it. I really love how the chunky glitter looks on it - it was white until I spritzed over it - duh!

SU event I attended

A friend of mine is a Stampin Up demonstrator (Shauna Larson) and last Wed she has a workshop. These are the projects that we made.
First this little purse is so cute! You open it up and it makes the sweetest little gift album which you can put some candy or other treasures in. The next picture is what it looks like when it is open.

This is the waterfall card that we made. Super cute!

This is a fun little easle card that we made. To create the ice cream you put glue on the image and then add a mixture of glitter, and emboss powder. You heat it with the heat gun and then it bubbles and really gives the texture of ice cream. I must say, I learned a new technique today.
