Gilli Black Friday

It’s that time of year again, the turkey, ham, yams, rolls, all of the good fixins’ of Thanksgiving ….. And shopping!

Black Friday is a tradition for some, to get up early, fight the crowds and hit the stores to pick up the best bargains possible. Why not get an early start on your shopping without even leaving the comfort of your own home?

Hop on over to Stamping Scrapping at 11 AM EST Thursday evening for a HUGE sale. Never shopped at Stamping Scrapping? Here is short bio about them:

Gilli Boho :: A Stroll in Fall colors


Howdy everybody! I just cannot get over all the colors Fall brings. Everywhere I look…”hum, how can I achieve that deep red or that sweet pale yet with orange sprinkles?”.  I am glad I can say this here…other people…I mean that kind that “doesn’t get it” lol…our craziness passion about stamps, papers and markers (all coloring tools actually) lol. That “kind" would think I am nuts…you… in other hand…understand me :). That is okay…one  day they will go under the spell…lol

Well Gilli loves to play with colors as much as I do, and it is true that she dress for each occasion : ) very comfortably! Gilli Boho is all fall”ishious” in her earthy tones look :).

Take a peak at the Gilli Blog for more pictures and list of materials for this project.

Rami spent a few days in the hospital and now has been recovering at home…and he needs to stay away from work for a few more days….since Rami is an essential gear to me and Gilli…We decided to extend the Design team call. We will wait for Rami and in the the mean time something sad should become a good opportunity for all of you!

Bright Fall :: Magnolia Stamp

MaggieBrightFall~ Hello people! Having fun in the sun? Well fall is in full force around here and I cannot wait to stroll around and see what nature has painted. To celebrate this beautiful fall season I prepared this little Magnolia card all in vibrant colors!

MaggieBrightFall For this card I used Magnolia stamps, stamped with memento ink on Cryogen paper and colored with copic marker (E00, E01, E11, Y02, y11, y15, yr21, E08, E19, E97, E37 and w1) and added a litta glitah! LOL Yes, I added a lot of sparkle to this gal so she would be perfect for Magnolia Stamp lovers current challenge. Also I made her top a bit sheer so my card could be added also to the current challenge that I am hosting at at The Copic Challenge Group (from my darling friend Suzanne Dean…lets’s give Suzanne some love…You are in my thoughts my friend!). The Challenge theme is SHEER/TRANSLUCENT…you can win a Gilli T-shirt and a few copics!!!

The bright papers on this project are from stash. I embossed with Cuttlebug embossing folders (hey have you heard that the new cuttlebug is already on pre-order at stampingscrapping.com?). The groovy patterned paper is from DCWV. For the base where Maggie is jumping right out I used nestabilities large ovals and decorated using stamps from Stampingscrapping design stamps (they are made to fit in on Nestabilities, check them out!) and inks from SU. I added a little rhinestone at the center of each flower of the stamped image. The little frill on the sides are from my silhouette library.

So join us from a load of fun at MSL and Copic Challenge Group….you can win big..and who doesn’t like a freebee!!!

Stay tuned I have some REAL EXCITING NEWS to come…I will be posting a little later…HUGE news!!! So stick around!

Well I am hosting the new challenge at Bildmalarna blog and the theme is “Pick your 3 favorite colors”. This is hard for me because I do have quite a few…but I chose white, aqua/green and pink. I always think of this color combination of being super feminine without being super sweet.

I also used nestabilities, embossing folders, ribbons and die cut embellishment. Copic and white maker. Nennah and patterned paper.

Magnolia stamp :: A yankee doodle!


Hello! Are you getting ready to celebrate? Yessss! Bring on the hot dog (okay I will eat beans too!). One of these days I will venture to see a fire works..once more. The first one was quite, let’s say..well let’s not. LOL. I got stuck in a huge traffic jam in Philadelphia! Lol Well at least I was under the same sky that some of the greatest minds in this planet once had.  Just to be in the same space where an amazing document was crafted, creating a whole new concept to a brand new country! WOW. That is fabulous! After thinking about all the history and the people that once cruised the same city…I wasn’t sad anymore about the traffic jam…Mr. Ford was up there probably proud looking down on upgraded versions of his visions. An American vision…just one of the greatest contribution to the world..assembly lines. See what I mean about sharing the goods?! This country was and is full of visionaries. Where do you think jeans was created?…like cola? Yeap..there you go again…and I would not be here talking you if was not for the  great people that made possible to shrink ENIAC…into a PC! Sorry MAC people..I am a PC…lol..


In of honor USA birthday I decide to make a card with a little song that says it all…Yankee Doodle dandy….empowering and confident!  That is what I think US is all about. I love the melody of this little march. Do you know that a band dressed in period clothing marches in front of Chief of States of other countries visiting the White house? It is soooo cute. I saw on the history channel…what a parade! I can only imagine how it was a long ago…Oh, some things never change, the soldiers so gallantly proud of their country and their people. I need to mention that the only time Yankee Doodle Dandy is not played is when the official is from England…well, I guess it would be a little rubbing too much! lol. So thank you all the Yankee doodles that are still helping to make AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL! So everybody sing now…”Yankee Doodle Dandy went to town riding on a poooney!…”

Yankee Doodle dandy is also considered the state song of Connecticut!

My card was made using cardstock (solids and DCWV), magnolia stamp, copic markers, cutllebug embossing folder, nestabilities, white pen, glue dots, memento ink and distress ink.

Got questions…just ask on the side bar!
