.. let freedom ring ..

Magnolia stamps has released four awesome stamps to celebrate the Fourth of July in the USA. Available soon at your Magnolia Stamps stockist :)

.. i have a thing for tags .. and bells ..

So I bought a pack of bells from the local art supply store and I was quite excited to use them in my projects. I thought it was a cute idea to have a project that makes a small tingling sound :)
I've also started a couple of tag projects Magnolia and non-Magnolia related. I love tags because they are quick and easy to jazz up :)
So here's the latest tag that I made for TOMIC this week. Please join us for this really fun challenge aptly named Fruity Pockets :) There's a prize for the lucky draw winner and a chance to be picked as top 5 for the month!

.. a SMASH*ing good time! ..

So I started keeping a Smash book for all the knick knacks I have relating to Magnolia. This smash book is dedicated to just anything Magnolia - images that I have colored that never made to any project, emails from Lena and Asa from Magnolia, from my fellow DT members, ideas I have for projects for the Ink.. I will show some pages I have done from time to time in my smash book :) In the meantime, this is the cover I did for my smash book, the tag is actually something I did a few weeks ago and posted. It's not really advisable to put any of the flowers you usually put on the card in any of the pages as it will create too much of a bulk. I try to keep it simple inside.

Smash book is by K&Company, it's actually a baby smash book but I liked the images inside and it's in green (which is my favorite color by the way)!

For me it's a really practical 'album' for images that I just like to color :) it's kinda fun to see how I have/will evolve with regards to my coloring style, etc. so maybe you can call it my coloring book of sorts :) I will still continue to do cards and other stuff with the cute images :) I actually do very minimal scrapbooking since I started Project Life - right now my interest is really with coloring Magnolias - it's so addictive :)

Thanks for stopping by this midweek :)

Have a Sunny Day...

.. or not in my part of the universe. Today, the sun decided to take a vacay and not show up. Dark clouds showed up at 7am but it's actually a welcome weather considering how hot it has been this couple of weeks. I like the rain, it makes me want to stay in bed or eat cup noodles :)
Today I'd like to share a card I made last night watching re-runs of CSI Miami. Hmm.. Miami - the beach :).. I made a scene with the Spring Kit Club from Magnolia - aren't the stamps lovely? I've enjoyed putting color in the images especially scenes :)
Here's the card:
