Make It Crafty at SCACD!


HAPPY FRIDAY!!!! Man, has this week blown right by me, but I am not going to complain...because the weekend is almost here:):):) PARTY TIME!!!! Yeah, right...who am I trying to kid....more like time to breathe and to veg on the sofa:) Now, that's my kind of weekend! Fingers and toes crossed that I'll be able to make that my weekend reality!!

Okay...enough of all that...today, me and a few of my SCACD design team sisters are going to share some "Make It Crafty" creations. You can find links to their mojo-inspiring blogs HERE...and believe me...you don't want to miss the lovelies they've created!!! I know they ALWAYS blow me away with their creativity!!!


Recently, Susana had the pleasure of adding some awesome Make It Crafty rubbah to the SCACD store shelves.  They made the long journey from Australia all the way to California:) And not only did the stamps make the trip, but some GORGEOUS lasercut chipboard decided to come along too!!! You can find all these Make It Crafty cuties and beauties HERE.


For today's card, I used the precious image "Summer Dreams". I think this is going to be a "Missing You" or "Wish You Were Here" card. Doesn't she look like she's lost in thought...thinking of someone she's missing? Maybe it's just me. I just love this sweet image:) And she is just one of MANY fabulous Make It Crafty stamps now available at SCACD. Man, Susana keeps adding the coolest, crafty goodies to the store that my wish list keeps growing and growing! If this keeps up...I really will have to be a lottery winner in order to move the items on my wish list into my shopping cart;) KWIM?




Okay...enough daydreaming about winning lottery tickets...don't forget to stop by the store blog and get the links to the blogs of my super talented SCACD DT sisters who are showcasing their Make It Crafty creations today too. Be prepared to be WOWed!!!! Have an awesome Friday and a relaxing weekend!!!!
