Friday Favorites

Hey all! Welcome to my first Friday Favorites post! This will be a bi-weekly post every Friday showing you some of my current favorites! I even made a cute frame/graphic for it! Gold star sticker for me and my snazzy-ness.

Let’s see what I picked out! (totally typed ‘licked out’ at first, lol.)


  • 1). Noteworthy 12X12 Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm Paper - WHY? Hello awesome colors, prints, etc. I think this is just a gorgeous piece of paper! The entire collection is fantastic, but this pattern really stands out to me!
  • 2). Road Trip Icons – Chic Tags WHY? The travel theme is fantastic, colors are great.. love the muted tones! Graphics are super cute! Great for cards, scrapbooking and ‘project Life’ type work!
  • 3). Charcoal Sketchbook Snippets Printed Chipboard Thickers WHY? I just like the ‘sketchy’ look of these. Think they would go well with a LOT of lines! I picked up three packs myself! One to use, one to hoard, and one to lose in my mess of a craft room.
  • 4). Doodlebug Ditto Dots Washi Tape WHY? Color, color, and more COLOR! Throw some dots in the mix and it can’t get much better. Unless it came with coffee… and chocolate… and a cute persian kitten.
  • 5). Fiskars Stamp Press WHY? I recently discovered this and I am not sure how I stamped without one before… oh, that’s right. I did stamp just fine.. just looked like a toddler did it.. This helps with using multiple cling stamps at once and really helps me get  nice even pressure. You need this if you stamp!
  • 6). EP Happy Go lucky WHY? The color palette alone is drop dead gorgeous! And the element stickers are rockin’. Great for spring! *high five* (Look for an upcoming DT project from me with this collection!)


So, how’s that for eye-candy?… Do you like the idea of the ‘Friday Favorites’ post?… I do. What are YOUR favorite things out right now? Link ‘em up.. I might miss something awesome out there..

Have a great weekend!

Wednesday Video – 3/13/13

Yes, it’s a Wednesday video being posted on Thursday… I’m only three weeks in to this new series and already slacking!


I DID try and do a video yesterday but it got too dark and the lighting was awful. I figured you’d all keep breathing even if I didn’t post a video… and you’re here now, so I guess I was right *wink*

I think I need to start doing these videos on Monday though, seriously. Between 1-3 takes, slight editing, foooooorever to upload a HD video.. by the time I finally get it posted, it’s midnight!

“Aien’t nobody got time for that!”

Have you all seen the ‘aien’t nobody got time for that’ lady? Hi-larious! LOL! I first saw that video on Tosh.0 (A TV show) and then next thing I knew it was the new ‘thing’. Little does that woman know, I’ve been saying that line for years.. because I really aien’t got time for NUFFIN’.


“Oh, heeeeeey… let’s start a weekly video series, Tamara” <— best.idea.ever.



But I’m gonna keep going.. I do like them AFTER they are done and I do get excited to share. It’s the stress of trying to not goof up and burp or something while filming.

I get heartburn you know.

I purposely starve before filming just for you.


Well, hopefully you all have time to watch my little 13 minute video showing you the new Pebbles ‘Party with Amy Locurto’ lines. I have a pool party, mermaid, and super hero collection. So different from the ‘usual’ themes you find now-a-days. I LOVE them!

So, check it out..

Please try to view it at the BEST QUALITY. And be patient and let the video load up before playing it. This will prevent the whole ‘freezing’ crud it does.

The video is embedded below, or you can watch it RIGHT FROM YOU TUBE and don’t forget to subscribe :)


alrighty, friends.. see you next week!



OH!!!.. Wait a sec… *chases you down*….. *tackles you*…. *takes your wallet*… lol just kidding on the ‘takes your wallet part’.

I’ll just take the whole purse.


OK, really.. I wanted to mention that every other Friday I am going to be doing a Friday Favorites post. Should be fun! I will start tomorrow with just various things I like.. from recipes, crafty stuff, kid stuff, etc. Just a little something different to throw in the mix here and there. Can you tell I am trying hard to entertain you?.. That’s why I am writing this from my laptop.. on a tight rope.. wearing a hot pink tu-tu… with a dog balancing on my shoulders.

All for you..

You’re welcome.

See you tomorrow!

Gettin’ fruity! A bushel basket with 3D fruit & mini note cards!

This week on the Doodlebug Blog (be sure to stop by the DB blog for a GIVEAWAY!!) we are featuring the delicious FRUIT STAND collection! This collection is SO cute! LOVE the pops of purple, the little cute fruits, everything! I could just eat it all up! Nom-nom-nom.

*smiles* do I have any Doodle-Pops stuck in my teeth?…


So, of course with this collection I right away think FRUIT! So I wanted to make a fruit basket.. then decided to make little note cards for them to make it a little more special and unique.

Now, seriously.. is that not adorable?… I really think it’s one of my favorite projects so far this year!

I used Doodlebug’s Create-a-Card system for my note cards. Quick? Easy? Cutenes overload? check. CHECK!

That cherry card is my fav! I LOVE that Doodle-Pop sticker. The ‘So Sweet’ sentiment is done with rub-ons.. which I’ve come to.. you guessed it, LOVE! lol

I stuck a brad over a button here… kinda cute, eh?

There’s another Doodle-Pop! (the sun.. so cute!) ’Sweet Summer’ flags stuck onto wood picks and tucked behind the bow. These cute fruits sure do make this a SWEET project.


To make this sweetness yourself, here’s what you’ll need:

I believe that’s everything! You can also make this your own twist with what you have on hand!

OK my crafty friends.. I’m outta here! As always, thank you for stopping by! Let me know what you think! Are YOU crafting for summer yet?… It just snowed over here and I’m already working on 4th of July stuff! Crazy-sauce right there.. LOL! I’m also about to work on some Halloween cards to submit for publishing. This off season crafting feels odd.. but it’s fun!

See ya!

Snow Monsters Go Fast – A Layout

*waves* Here I am as promised.. showing you all what I made with the product featured in my ‘What I’m Working With Wednesday’ video! I feel all sorts of accomplished now, lol! There was a moment there when I thought I was going to scrap this layout.. but, I think I pulled it together pretty well.

For this layout I REALLY wanted to push myself to use those darn mists and the mask. I practiced a bit for the look I wanted on some scrap paper.. and to my amazement, I got it ‘right’ on my actual layout! Mist is a bit tricky.. I am learning that different brands spray differently. Some come out clean and spray very well.. some spray more ‘scattered’ (even with clean nozzles). I think I am getting it though.. and I like the look. Not for everything, but I felt the misted arrow mask worked well with this layout. I also knew I wanted a white background with pops of color and chunky rectangles or squares of paper. I am not 100% sold on the placement of the photo, but I had already sewn down the chat bubble and moving the photo anywhere else would look odd.

The title comes right from my little dudes mouth! I was printing his photo and he was talking about his snow monster hat.. He said it makes him go faster on the sled. Then he said, “Snow monsters go fast, huh mama?”... *high five* to the boy for helping his title challenged mama!

So, if you haven’t viewed the video of all the yummy product from the Studio Calico ‘Here & There’ collection, you can view it HERE. I also show some other random bits that coordinate with the collection.


OK, on to the layout!

I just love that picture of my little man! He just got done sledding down a big hill (right in our front yard!) and landed pretty much at my feet.. I was trying to make sure I stopped him from flying through a tree into the neighbors yard, lol.

Used the Studio Calico roller stamp here. Perfect! Added some stitching to a few parts of the layout.

Some scattered embellishments… fun, fun!… or, like the chat bubble says, “SO FUN!”


That’s it! I really hope you all are enjoying the layouts! I definitely feel more ‘at peace’ with making them now.. not so much like a beginner. It’s not as scary as it once was. Now I feel like a more well rounded designer; layouts, cards, altered stuff, etc. ya me! *smiles*

OK, friends.. off with ya! Have a good one…

An altered embroidery hoop with brand NEW Doodlebug ‘Flower Box’ collection

Hello crafty friends!! This week on the Doodlebug Blog we are sharing some amazing projects with the NEW Flower Box collection!

A gorgeous color palette with a sweet touch of ‘melon’ which I love! Such a rarely seen color it seems… at least on papers. You’ll also get a yummy woodgrain fix with this collection and the several different colored woodgrain prints! It’s all around a happy, awesome collection!

I created a altered embroidery hoop! I love doing these right now and have two more that you’ll see eventually.. for other DT work. Anyhow, check out this cuteness!

Pretty cute, huh? Now it’s hanging in my craft room as a decoration… too bad it’s not bringing us spring, we’re suppose to get snow tomorrow!

Be sure to swing by the Doodlebug blog and see what the other talented DTers have made! So much inspiration!

And lucky you.. ALL four new Doodblebug collections are available at Two Peas! CHECK IT OUT!

Come see all the goodies I picked out to go along with it! I’m working on a layout with this stuff so be sure to check back in a few days to see. Also, I ask some questions in the video and address just a few things that were mentioned in my last video comments and feedback.. so.. let me know!

Please SUBSCRIBE to my channel. be sure to view it as the best quality possible to get a good look (hover over the ‘gear’ icon and select the best setting you can). Enjoy!


** For some reason I am hearing a light static when viewing right from my blog.. maybe it’s just me? I am new to this whole video thing so maybe I did something wrong. Sounds fine on YT though… So, if you rather viewing it from You Tube, CLICK HERE!

Excuse the mess..

Hey all.. if you just happen to stop by and things look wonky, it’s because I am changing over my blog theme today. Shouldn’t take too long :)

NEW weekly video series – Oh, yeah!

That’s right, folks.. in case Facebook, Instagram, and my blog were not enough.. you can now find me on You Tube! I Just might be the next big You Tube Star…

OK.. maybe not. But I am excited to share with you all!


I decided to start a series called ‘What I’m Working With Wednesday’. I am going to TRY and do a new video every Wednesday. Just a quick and not very ‘formal’ video to show you some goodies I am working with for the week! Most the time it will be brand NEW stuff, fresh releases.. or stuff not yet released. Very little of ‘older’ stuff. Of course I urge you all to stop by my blog later on and see what I made with the goodies in the video. So, please let me know what you think. Do I talk to much.. not enough.. am I boring.. do I have hairy knuckles? This is just a ‘rough’ video to see how you all like it. If it’s a ‘go’ then I will make it snazzy with intros and what-not.

If you want to watch directly from You Tube, CLICK HERE and please SUBSCRIBE to my channel for more updates, etc. I might even sneak in a ‘haul’ video here and there. I do think I will use my Flip camera next time as the focus is not as good as I would have liked, but I tried!


Also, make sure you are viewing it at the best resolution that you can… Do this by hovering over the video and clicking the ‘gear’ icon… Like so:

So.. here it is! This WIWWW (Short for What I’m Working With Wednesday.. ) is showing off the new Doodlebug Designs collection ‘Take Note’. This collection is NOT available yet… which makes it even more fun to peek at! I can not wait to show you my project featuring this collection.

And please ignore my sloppy nail polish job. I just painted them this morning and well.. I didn’t do a very good job, lol.

See ya next week with another video! Enjoy and please let me know your thoughts!

A chick and a winner!

That blog title Sounds like a weird children’s book.. lol

So, I have a quick blog post today to announce the winner of the Echo Park kit from the blog hop! As always, we had a great turn-out and we are so glad you all joined us this month! I also have a cute ‘one piece’ chick box to share!

First up.. the box. Because it’s so darn cute! This little guy was created with SVG Cuts’ new kit of the week, ‘Egg Hunt’. This is this weeks FREE GIFT with your purchase of $9.98 or more. Use offer code FREEGIFT at checkout. GET IT HERE! Includes a lifetime warranty of happiness and the satisfaction of knowing you can always win over your friends and family with your amazing craft skills thanks to SVG Cuts… and the dirty looks from the other ‘room moms’ because you’re more awesome than they are is an added bonus!


Now that I’ve thrown my sales pitch at you.. here’s the little chick. His name is Gus.

Gus does’t normally have a bow on him… or feet (which I added from THIS kit) He’s cute without the bow.. BUT.. put one on him and shy little Gus quickly turns into overly confident ‘Gustavo’..

Jeez.. please excuse Gustavo.

Ya put a bow-tie on a chick and he gets all impudent ‘n stuff.

This little guy..

“What’s that, Gus?.. er.. ‘Gustavo’ ”…

“You’re not a little guy?…

“You’ll peck my eyes out!?”


Um.. Sooo.. this big ‘ol tough guy with feathers of steel was created with Doodlebug Designs goodies! I used the orange and yellow ‘petite prints’ basics. The black mini brads were perfect sized ‘eyes’. The bow-tie is a FREE FILE and cut with a blue polka dot pattern from ‘Hello Spring’. Even the twine for his little fluff is from Doodlebug!

“Hush, Gustavo!.. Be glad I didn’t give you a comb-over!….. perhaps a mullet?..”

In case you didn’t hear Gustavo, he was asking why I didn’t give him a Justin Beiber hairstyle. ‘Gustavo Fever’ just doesn’t have the same ring to it.


OK.. enough with that chicken nugget!!

“You heard what I said, GUS!… that’s right, NUGGET” 


Time for my Echo Park blog hop WINNER!

KAYLA FOISTER who said, “ I am a huge Echo Park fan and I just started doing Project LIfe style scrapbooking so I am super happy with their photo freedom lines! I have the Today’s Story Collection and I love it! Thanks for sharing your pages!”
