Broken Punch

Oh wow!!! I have just been inspired even more to buy Fiskar products!!! :)

I was punching some cardstock with a friend's border punch (pictured) a few weeks ago, when the handle just broke off!!! It's something I'd always been scared of happening -- and then it did!!!

I had heard that Fiskar's has a lifetime warrenty on their products -- and so I contacted them on their website. A few weeks later, a replacement punch arrived in the mail!!! How awesome is that!?! Giving my friend a new fiskars punch felt great! :)

So yah for Fiskar products!!! :) They may be expensive, but they're totally worth it!  They do feature some of the best punches (especially) -- their squeeze punches are totally awesome as well -- about the easiest punches to use. So yeah -- if you're going to buy a punch, why not check out the Fiskars products. You won't be disappointed. :)

Another Sketch

I love working with sketches. Especially when I have great supplies on hand -- and lots of mojo to work with!!! :)

I've been working with a few card sketches I put together -- just favourites from different online galleries. This card is my favourite so far -- LOL -- it just might have a little to do with the colours. :p LOVE this particular shade of blue!

A friend of mine sent me a great website that has a lot of great free fonts for scrapbooking, etc. They're perfect for creating Word Arts. Here's one I created and used on my card.

Added a bunch of layers -- and some awesome dry embossing (with a friend's Cuttlebug) and the card was done! Love the simplicity of it, while at the same time that shade of blue makes it pop! :) TFL

stamping with the dragon: anything goes

It's been too long!!!!

Yeah -- I think it's time to get back to some blogging already!!! I've been working on a few other projects in the last weeks, and haven't spent a whole lot of time making cards and layouts. But I'm planning on getting back to making some cards next week -- have a whole bunch of ideas to try.

Here's a card I make for the card lifter's group I joined in Fiskateers. Basically you're given a card/sketch and everyone in the group makes a card based on the card/sketch given.

I had an idea of what I wanted to do with the sketch, but honestly it didn't turn out quite the way I had it planned, but that's okay. I did a whole bunch of layers (love love love layers!!!) and inked up the edges.

Yeah -- the card's growing on me. Maybe by the time I send it off, I'll love it! :p TFL
