that scary uninspired place.

I've been in one of those scary places for a stamper...you might know the place.  It's the place where you come home from work and just want to sit on the couch and veg out and not do anything constructive or creative...it's fun for a minute or 2 or for a week or so and then you start to feel yucky and sad and lonely for your stampyness to come back.

So I'm trying to get back to it.

In the meantime my Silhouette Cameo finally came in the mail :)
I ordered it from Oh My Crafts a few weeks ago.

You'd think that would get me going, wouldn't you?

Last night I played with it and cut out a few of the Samantha Walker Designs files that I have...

So that's what's what.

See you soon, hopefully over the weekend I can kick this...wish me luck.

Unity Hip Hop Thursday!

Happy Thursday!!!!!!!
Thursday's are SO FUN, aren't they?  A fabulous Unity Blog Hop, starting on the Unity Blog...AND it's almost Friday!  What could be bad about all of that? :)

For our Hip Hop today we're being INSPIRED by our Pinterest pins!

I have some to share at the end of my post but wanted to show you my card,, 1st...which is not really inspired by any of my pins...I have a confession....I NEVER look at crafty stuff on Pinterest, it's all about the fashion, hair, sassy saying and nails and sometimes food for me!

Let me show you my card I made using the January Kit of the Month: Heart & Soul
I used this months KOTM Sketch Challenge, you can find HERE.
now for a little peek at my pinning habits!

Yeah, so that's what I can spend HOURS doing...every day if I had the chance :)

Now it's time to visit the wonderful Lisa!

Samantha Walker Creative Team 1st Blog Hop of 2012!

Hi everyone!!!  It's our first blog hop of this fabulous new year!  How's it going for you, so far???  It's pretty good here, hope it's great for you!

The blog hop starts on the Samantha Walker Blog so start there :)

For today's blog hop I used some of Samantha's digital papers.  I have never done any digital scrapping or card making but I can still use these pretty papers and embellishments.  I used the Harvest Moon Solid Textured Papers for my 2 4x4 cards.  These kits are an amazing value!  These papers are $3.99 for the whole kit and you can just print them out to your hearts content :)  I used some nice, smooth white card stock and they came out beautifully.

Here are the 2 cards I made:
Wanna know one of the most awesome things about these kits?  When you don't have time to go to the store to get paper or time to wait for an order to come in the mail...you can get them NOW!  NOW is nice ;)

The shapes were cut using the Samantha Walker Spellbinders dies: Twisted Metal Tags and Accents & Blossom Tags and Accents.

I hope you'll try some digi-printing, too :)
If you'd like to WIN some FREE digi kits, then be sure to leave lots of comments!  Leave a comment on all of the blogs and you'll have a chance for a $10 digi-store coupon and a can of PYM II spray!

Now it's time to head to the Samantha Walker Facebook page to let us know what you think of all of these projects today!
Have a fabulous day, friends!

I love making Valentines...

even though I seriously loathe hearts...don't give me heart jewelry or decor with hearts on it or cute socks with hearts...I don't like them.
But there's something about making Valentine's Day cards that warms my, well...heart!

Maybe it's the papers, the pinks and prettiness, I don't know but I like it!

Here's a sweet card for my sweetie that I made with the stampTV Kit called: True Love

Hope you like it!

Have a FABULOUS day, friends!!
