Everyday Moments Card

This card is for Challenge #27 from the 365 Cards Blog... to incorporate 3 different methods of adding texture. I used another of my brand new Cuttlebug folders, just loving them!! Also used my Heidi Swapp Edge Distresser and did some tearing too. Had fun with this one!

Joy Card

Made this one for Challenge #26 from the 365 Cards Blog... to scrap with a color that you tend to shy away from. I knew right away that would have to be PURPLE. Not a fave of mine at all, so I find it hard to scrap with it. I made the base of my card a lavender, and used a large lavender flower too.

Hope is Free Card

Having some Friday night scrappy fun, and have the house ALL to myself, muah-hahaha!! Love it, so nice and quiet. And I've already finished 3 cards and am trying to decide what to work on next. Gonna start a chick flick too. :o)

This card was made for Challenge #25 from the 365 Cards Blog... an ad inspiration challenge. These are always fun!!

Oh, and the goodies are from my March Mid-Month kit from Two Spotted Dogs... fun stuff!!

Also got to play with my brand new Cuttlebug Embossing Folders. I just found out from my buddy Nathalia (who does FABULOUS work by the way, check it out!!) that you can use these with your Sizzix machine. I just HAD to get some, so love the look!! Picked up 3 different ones from Hobby Lobby during lunch today and am just loving them!!

As Alecia Scraps Etsy Shop

Finally got around to adding some fun stuff to my Etsy shop... AS ALECIA SCRAPS that I've had forever. I've been playing around with felt, so you'll find some fun hand-made embellishments in there. Lots of ideas brewing in my head for these!!

Also, some of my handmade cards. Thought I'd try my hand at selling some of them, since I seem to just collect them. Some other random stuff in there too. I'm gonna try to add stuff regularly and will keep you all update. Also gonna try my hand at putting together some fun, one-of-a-kind kits (using old and new goodies) in the near future too, so keep your eyes peeled for that!! :o)

Check it out and let me know what you think!!
