I bet your wondering

By now your probably wondering why I named this blog Hooked on Stamps....I really am and will get some stuff posted soon. I was just trying to get some stuff up that I had done so my blog wouldn't be so empty!! So, bear with me...soon you'll see stamps!!!!

Princess Album- Chipboard

I used alot of stickers, Gel pens, Markers, Rubber stamps and more....
I also used some skittles that I colored with Ranger Alcohol Inks.
I used some color buttons to make some texture and did some doodling on several of the pages
This is my niece proving she "will" never grow up!!! Add some ribbon, a colorful tag.

In case you can't read it the back of the album says "Made with love for Me"

I made this album as a surprise for my niece, she sent me some pictures of her trip, I gave them back to her in this album that I created with my Cricut and Design Studio. I bound it with my Bind it All.

Lifes a Beach Card

I used the new Lifes a Beach Cartridge to create this fun card. I colored in the chair with Copics I cut out the shapes around the bottom and colored them with copics (I cut everything out in white) Then I glued Sand all around the bottom to create the beach! I cut the letters out using Lyrical Letters.

CD Album

I made a Mini Album using old CD's! I bound it together using my Bind it all. I used some free paint chips to stamp my fairy image. This was a fun and quick way to make a small gift for someone and they can add their pictures to it.

Fire Hydrant chipboard book

I used alot of different type stickers and cutouts from Paper Pups Cartridge
I even put his little twig he found outside that amused him for a very long time
Here he is talking to us....
This is Petey with MooMoo our pet pitbull, they're best friends and are caught cuddling on and off all day. The morning starts with Petey running to give MooMoo kisses and chew on her ears for a bit.
This is Petey with my youngest son

I made this to put some of my new puppies baby pics in. His name is Petey , my husband bought him for me for Christmas.He was supposed to be a teacup, but, he's not! But, he does have alot of personality and wins over people who hate small dogs!!! He's brought alot of laughs and love to our family and I don't know how we could have gotten along without him.
I cut the hydrant out of chipboard and used the PaperPups Cart in Design Studio so I could resize it easily. I bound it with my ever faithful Bind it All. I'll try to be more astute at what I used on my project in the future as I never thought I'd have a blog!

Doodlecharms Mini Photo Album

I made this Mini Album using the Doodlecharms Cartridge.
I cut out alot of little shapes to use on all the different pages
I did alot of doodling with Markers, added some small cut out flowers with Stickle Centers

I outlined some of the cutout pieces with a marker to make it stand out a bit, since I used alot of patterned papers. Added some ribbon here and there.
I used a bit of Wired Ribbon and scrunched it up to make a bit of texture.

This little album was alot of fun to make , I got to try alot of different things, some I liked , some I did'nt but, thats how you

I'm totally new to this so here we go... Here's 2 cards I made using my cricut and cuttlebug. I used the Mini Monograms Cartridge, Prima flower, and ribbon. On the Friends card I also used my Spica pens, which I love for their ease of use and they dry so fast. I totally threw away all my other glitter pens.
