New Release! 12 fun images!


Happy Friday!  I am so glad the weekend is almost here!  

Here are all my projects...

First is Material Girl Rio, I looooved using my brand new leopard embossing folder and running my black ink pad over the top, it created enhanced spots yeah? All papers are Bazzill as I did not use any printed paper. The green with the skulls is also stamped!



Rockin' Heavy Metal Jude is ready to rock your world!  The paper is very old, from 2007 Teresa Collins for Junk Itz, I loved this paper so much that when I ordered it for my shop (back when I first opened my first scrapbook store) I only put out half of the entire line for sale and the other half I kept for myself!  I have used this line on many of my son's layouts!



Now I have Cool Chick Lola!  She is like totally from the 80s!  The background paper is from DCWV, an 8x8 School Paper pad!


Cool Dude Christian is Lola's pal from the 80s!  The paper is also from the same 8x8 paper pad.


Shoot Em' Up Chris, again a very old BoBunny Valentine Paper line from 2007!  It was just so perfect for this image!  I usually tend to color my image first before I figure out my paper, luckily this fit
 like a glove!    


Flappin Betty, same BoBunny Line!


Victorian London...another very old line from Making Memories, the bottom strip I used is awesome, it actually has that flower cut out!  This way the background paper shows through!  How cool is that!?!



Victorian Miller, again same Making Memories papers.  The Mustache and Top hat are from a new Sizzix Dies set!  I can't believe I bought them and have already used them!  Usually, as you can tell with my paper, it's years before my stuff gets used lol!


Space Girl Lola, this project is one of my favorites!  These cute little treat bags (available in my store as well) are a perfect way to create a cute and fast little treat for a special someone!  This one is going to my son's counselor at school.  I have filled them with fruit flavored Tootsie Rolls!  The paper is from Echo Park, about three Summers ago, maybe two.


Space boy Christian, with BoBunny's Blast Off! paper collection.  


and finally 50s Chris and 50s Betty the images were merged together for my project, but they are sold separately.  The paper is from the same 8x8 school pad from DCWV, but the red strip on the bottom was again hand stamped using a stamp from a Stampendous clear set.


I hope you have enjoyed all of my projects, I can't believe that for the first time in many, many, many months I have colored AND created a card, tag, or project with all of them.  I hardly ever get a chance to do it all from start to finish...phew!  I am tired, BUT!  Time to start sketching out the next lines!  Whoohoo!

Thank you for stopping by!  Please check out all the details of where to purchase these images and hop on over to my DT gals blogs to see the amazing projects they've created by starting at the Simply Betty Stamps blog.  Have a wonderful Friday!

All Things Altered-Spring Hop!

Happy Friday and Happy Spring!

I for one and happy that it's finally thawing out up here on our little mountain! Of course I am not looking forward to the heat following the Spring but the sun does start to feel good when out and about. 

Today you are joining us on this fun blog hop from the beginning which is Pam's blog, however you must have found your way to me from Debbie's blog. A big welcome to you!

Let's get to hopping and the eye candy we have all prepared for you!  A few will have prizes along the way so be sure to leave comments!

Today I have altered yet another Hat... using a slightly Halloweenish image, but giving it more of a Spring feel to it!  I have used my Steampunk image Creator and Monster from artist Abigail Larson.  Colored them as bright as I could (bright for me anyway) and added Tattered Angels to the grungboard and hat itself.  Here is my hat from start to finish...

Blank hat


Used Tattered Angels and Dylusion sprays 


Ebelished the hat with Grunge board, bottle caps, and an image :) 





I hope you have enjoyed my altered Hat!  Your next stop is Gloria please head on over to see what beauty she has for you!
