Carving my Own stamps

So thanks to Stampin' Up! introducing a new stamp set now you can carve your own stamps if you are so inclined. After all who doesn't have a stamp that they wish was out there but you can't seem to find it anywhere? Yesterday I got my carving kit out and carved my first stamp. It was definitely a little more involved that I recommend for a first time carver but I'm still super happy with how it turned out!

If you are curious and want to see what "Undefined" is all about check out Stampin' Up!s Youtube video: Undefined - Stampin Up!

I didn't take pictures of all the steps but here it is after I finished carving out the image in the rubber:
Once this step is completed you take your craft and rubber scissors and cut around the image
You can see the rubber image and what the image looks like stamped as well. (sorry for it being sideways but blogger wouldn't cooperate)

 How do you like the idea of creating your own stamps? Head on over to my website and order yours today:  -

Tractor Card - punches

I have made a few cards here and there but most of the time I've been way to busy with work and my family as well as house work that I don't have time for extra's such as stampin'. Sad fact of my life.. I hope to fix that soon though!!! Before that though, here is a card I made for a 2 year olds birthday today. A tractor - New Holland one, with punches. I realize that some of the punches may no longer be available from Stampin' Up! but I still wanted to share this cute card with you!

Birthday Card

It really feels like a long time ago that I've posted something on my blog that was scrapbooking/cardmaking/digital related. I guess really it's been a long time since I've posted at all. A few weeks ago I made this card for my sister who had her birthday just before Valentine's Day, and I want to share it with you now.

Digital Downloads

I haven't done this in a while but here is the link for this weeks digital downloads. Not sure about what you think but I know that pretty much every since one of these is on my wish list!*DgWupKg0J7ySl6GEtZkDdTkGcV0ZX1zvJMnaaX2l/21913MDSDownloads.pdf

Another cool fact that I want to share with all of you. Digital downloads can now be included on workshop orders :) This is something that I was wanting to happen for a long time, Stampin' Up! never disappoints.

Blogging absence

So sorry that I haven't been posting lately. The honest truth is since having a baby + working full-time = little extra time for blogging + crafting/creating. Since I don't have time for any extra's sometimes the least important things have to go. Which for me is the extras such as blogging, family is definitely way more important and takes a lot more of my time now that I'm busy with work as well. Hopefully as T get's older I'll find more time for fun things such as blogging and crafting again and I'll start posting projects again!

I have made a few cards since she has been born and as always taken a picture of them I just never seem to find the time to post them so that you can enjoy them as well :(

I'm going to leave it at this for now and we'll see what happens here in the next few months! Hopefully you are still all creating and crafting away!

Digital Downloads

Just thought I'd post a link with the latest digital downloads again.

There's some super adorable ones in there this time.. I'm totally in love with the ribbon/bows and they are going on my order asap! Which ones do you love and just have to have?
