Inkpad Poll Comments

I'm planning on getting a nice red inkpad soon, but I don't have any idea of which brand would be the best. (I really like pigment ink pads by the way.)

If you have the time I would really love it if you could help me out. Or you could give me a comment here.

I love Katharina's sketches!

I have recently found a fabulous card blog: Katharina's Creative Place at

I've made a couple cards this week based on one of her sketches. I love her sketches; they are so easy to use and fit my style so well. Here's the sketch I used:

Katharina's sketch 23014

Here is a pic of the materials I used, excluding the paper and ribbon.

The animal stamps are Stampin' Up (I used the ram one for more grass); the trees are from a Close-to-my-Heart set. And a foam sentiment stamp.

Inkpads, sponges, Whispers markers, 1.5" circle punch, Stampin' Up scallop punch (I got the fun shape by punching it twice), and Stampin' Up spritzer.


This little photo shows the coloring better.

What do you think of the supply photos? If you want to see any of the photos larger you can click on them.

New starts...

I have decided to stop fighting with blogsome, so I'm switching to blogger. I am feeling very less stressed noticing all the little improvements that make my blogging easier.

I have decided to blog more regularly now. After I post the few videos I have made on this blog, I will start fresh.

I hope everyone who visits will have a good time and get some inspirations from my cards and ramblings. As always, I would love to have a few comments. I promise to visit the blog of anyone who posts a comment. Seems only fair, doesn't it?

I love organising

Ever since getting back from visiting my sister, I haven't been making very many cards. I have been organising and re-organising my crafting stash. I've put all of my unmounted stamps into a A5 binder; it's the perfect size for most stamp sets. 022 021
Another thing that I've done is make a catelog of all my inks, pens, punches, die-cuts, and stamps. I think the photos explain better. It took a very long time to stamp out all of my stamps, but it makes it so easy to flip through a choose one for a card. 009 010 011 012
I used skinny little photo albums and file cards. It might seem peculiar, but I really loved doing this. Organising can be really fun for me. Now that I'm finished, I'll be back to making cards and hopefully some videos.

Metallic Effect Dots

Sassafrass Lass Blue Boutique papers, Penny black stamps, homemade embossing stencil, Fiskars circle cutter, and corner rounder.

I'm not very pleased with my video - the coloring part turned out very blurry. I hope it doesn't bore everyone; if it is boring skip to the middle. Let me know if you enjoyed the video!
