Hearts O' Pleanty

FAT Book Page OH MY:)

Yes I have actually created my very first FAT Book page. Fat book page you say what is that?
Well a Fat book page is a 4x4  square of art. Created by different artists then traded and put together into a book. You could think of them as a different shaped ATC.

I signed up for my very first Fat book swap and the theme was winter. I found it actually very hard to do this project. I don't know why. I don't know if it was thinking out of the dimensions of a regular ATC or what. It was just very difficult to come up with a design I was satisfied with. I still am uncertain with what I ultimately settled with. So here it in my "Winter Wonderland" Until next time Create Great ART!!

EMO Love:)

I had to make an ATC for One of my Cafe mom Groups today. So I choose to use one of my new Simply Betty stamps I got in November During her Black friday sale:) What a great sale it was too!!
This is one of her Burton Chibis. Since the stamp is actually bigger than an ATC I had to stamp her out then color her and copy her smaller on my printer. She is an actually stamp not a digi that I can resize:(  I called this card "EMO LOVE" Hope you enjoy and until next time
Create Great ART!!

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week! 
 If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps   at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT   for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug
Another great easy way to bring attention to your blog /posts – add the below htlm code to your post, to allow people to “pin” you on the web for 1,000’s to see and  share!

This weeks Challenge is in the Bag or Box. We had to create a bag or box from scratch for a family or friend. No store bought bags. We were allowed to use our cricut machines though thank goodness LOL:) 
Here is my project Hope you enjoy. Until next Create Great Art!!
