Card Samples



Upon MUCH deliberation (i sound so serious AY? LOL), I have decided to change SCRAPPY TOOSDAY to ANYTHING GOES TOOSDAYS..  wonder why?  Cuz my head is in a KAJILLION places at once and I need to just make what I feel like making without being committed to a certain topic.  Sound good?  So.. HAVING SAID THAT….

I am totally addicted to die cuts.  Quickutz to be exact.  OH YA and my BIG SHOT.  It’s SICK!  Even the older dies that have existed forevah (which I own) are just becoming my new BFF’s again LOL.  So I decided that on TOOSDAYS, we will talk about dies, tutorials, scrapbook layouts, dies, quickutz, dies.. LOL you get the picture.  We are squealing with delight in BELLALAND today cuz I think my most “FAVORITIST” (as jayden says) embossing folder has crossed the threshold.  OMG.. I think you will fuh-reak out!  I can’t explain how Nicky and I HUGGED each other when we saw these embossing folders.. *ahem* I mean we THOUGHT about hugging each other.. LOL.  These flowers are the CUTEST FLOWAHS I HAVE EVER SEEN.. and being run through the big shot? OMG.. the detail, the crispness..  I don’t think I have felt this way in a lonnnng time (sorry Ryan..LOL)

here’s a sample that Nicky cooked up in 30 seconds just to show you the deep impression of this die..  is this the cutest thing EVAH? Nicky also used her SIGNATURE retro flower punches as embellishments and Bella’s dots in the center.

Here is a little 4*4 card I made (HAVE I TOLD YOU I AM ALSO ADDICTED TO 4*4 CARDS??? hmph).. ever since I found the envies to fit, I cannot control myself… double hmph..

I LOVE this card (if I do say so myself)..LOL.  Makes me so very SHMAPPY.  I used the Jenni Bowlin MINI PAPERS in TANGERINE DREAM.  I am absolutely IN LOVE with these MINI PAPERS.  SOOO in love with these mini papers… TRIPLE HMPH!! LOL.  They come with a million sheets..(4 sheets of each image) and they are such a teeny print.. perfect for cards!  LOOOOOVE THEM!  Used the quickutz INSTANT PHOTO teeny tiny weeny winy CUUUUUTE polaroid photo quickutz die.  LOOOVE IT!  It’s wonderful for a scrapbook layout as well.. you can actually put background pictures in them..cropped pictures… they look ADORABLE!! I think that Sarahbella will have some samples using this die in a mini book .. TO DIE FOR!  Also used cloud white bonbons in the top corner sprinkled for decoration. Also used the EK SUCCESS BRACKETS PUNCH as an element. CUTE?

Last but not least.. I made ANOTHER 4*4 card (hmph) using the quickutz TELEPHONE die.. and our sentiment.. it just makes me happy! also used PRIMA CAUTION paper from the Rebellious collection

So how’s DAT for anything goes TOOSDAY!

So here’s a CONTEST FOR SOME BLOG CANDY…  WANNA WIN MY ABSOLUTELY FAVORITEST EMBOSSING FOLDER IN THE WORLD ??? (see above for deets).. well, I would love to hear what you would like to call these TOOOSDAYS!  So leave a comment and let me know if we should replace “ANYTHING GOES”.. k?  Contest closes NEXT MONDAY JUNE 22nd!

    Hey Miz Em – YAY new embossing folders —LOVEEE them all.

    How about “Tinkerin’ Tuesday”. When I was a young girl and my Dad was busy working in his woodshop I would ask “Daddy, what are you doin”….he would reply…”just tinkerin darlin’, just tinkerin”….that meant that he was just playing around with his tools and wood.

  28. Jery says:

    Love the flowers, how pretty! how about Totally Tuesdays!

  30. Cathy Green says:

    Usually I’m pretty good at coming up with ideas, but for some reason my brain is on vacation. I did come up with a few though…

    No holds barred Tuesdays
    Limitless Tuesdays
    Bella-riffic Tuesdays
    No rules Tuesdays
    Free for all Tuesdays

    I also think Anything Goes is still good.

  31. Denise M says:

    Well… I’m not great at these things, but I’ll take a stab. How ’bout… News Day Toosday? Or, in Bella spelling… Nooz Day Toozday.


  32. Kelly S says:

    Terrific folders! I like both names, but anything goes Toosday leaves room for well ……. anything!

    How about Toozle-bella Toosday!
    Or Toss it Up Toosday!

  33. Denise says:

    great cards and folder

    I like the Anything goes theme…..or maybe

    Tuesday Treats
    Two for Tuesday
    Tuesday Talents


  34. I’m just tumbling with joy waiting to hear the new name. I’m trembling with excitement to see what you come up with. I’m thinking that Tantalizing Toosday’s could be a good one. Just a thought.

  35. jen says:

  42. Christine Blossom says:

    Tempting Tuesdays… because we’re all tempted to buy everything on the site! 🙂

  43. Margo S. says:

    OOOhhh – love any and all embossing folders!!
