Cards using Anji's images

Hey good people,

The following are cards made using Anji's images.  Her blog link is under my Blogs of Inspiration listing; check it out and you will find some very nice images.  The first two cards are Vintage themed and it took  me forever to figure it out.  They are the first vintage cards I have created and I must say I was challenged!  TFL...  Much Love, Kinkybella

Sorry about my photography skills.  I have to learn to do better.

Hey good people,

Thanks for hanging in there with me during another absence.  Life!  While after a challenge from a fellow blogger, I decided to try my hand at designing a candle using the tissue paper technique.  It was seriously easy and fun (maybe using this idea for Christmas gifts ;0) .  I used the image of myself, which was purchased from Robert Jackson. Then I just added bling and a few flowers.  TFL..

Teenage RACE Challenge

Hey good people,

Are you ready for a good laugh?  I hope so because after you watch this video you are going to be crackin up...soooooo, I as at a crop today and two young teenagers decided to challenge me to a race.  The goal was to run to the ballroom doors and back.  Now, needless to say I am about 30 years older than these young ladies, but they insisted they could beat me in a race.  Well, tell me what you think...LMBO!  TFL,
Much love, Kinkybella...

Craft Day Cards

Hey good people, I have accepted an offer to teach at a local Craft Day event.  I was asked to make 3-4 projects, so I plan to teach the crafters how to alter a tissue paper roll (in the red), and the two simple cards.  I will post the last design i a cople days.  If you have an idea about the type of card I show teach, let me know because I want it to be a bit challenging.  I am excited as it is my first time being paid to show someone how to make a card.  It's ironic because I only made layouts until I joined the site Scraps of Color.  Cardmaking wasn't an interest of mine, but I really enjoy it now.  TFL

Hey good people,
This is my entry for the Mojo Monday contest. TFL...Much Love Kinkybella
Hey good people,
I have seen many projects created by people using paper napkins, so I decided to try my hand at it.  I used mod podge to adhere it to the frame ($1 frame from Michael's) and my image drawn by Robert Jackson.  I like what I have done...tell me what you think...TFL.  Much love, Kinkybella.

Hey good people,

Tonight I was playing around with an idea I saw at the Community's not perfected, but I did enjoy making these simple magnets.  I will make more and post for your viewing pleasure later:)  I used the image Robert Jackson made of me, mod podge, and flat stones I purchased from the Dollar Tree ( I will get more; have you seen how much they cost else where).  I sized and used a 1" circle punch on the image, then glued the flat side of the stone and adhered the image...lastly I put a round magnet on the back.  How cute!  Anyways, they were easy and fun to make.  TFL.
Much Love, Kinkybella
