DIY!! Why? Because You CAN.

Hello, Everyone!!

Today, my latest video for Gauche Alchemy is LIVE!

Wanna peek? Ok, then. Why didn't ya just say so!!

To go along with the brand new, and super SWEET Stamp Vamp TechniKit, I've whipped up a little tut on creating DIY Silhouette Stamps. This kit is chock full of fun ways to create one of a kind, custom stamps.

Just a warning tho'. It's addictive. Makin' stuff. All by yourself.

You've been warned.

Now, hop on over to Gauche-land and check out the goods!


Beauty Is Fleeting, But A Tile Coaster Will TOTALLY Save Your Table ;-)

Hello, My Bloggy Friends!!

Today, a brand new video is LIVE on Saturated Canary's YouTube channel! How fun is that?!??

This week, I'll be showing you how to alter up some tile coasters for a fun and FAB little gifty :-)

Here's a peek at the finished project...

I'm so in love with Snow White!! Always have been. It must be a by product of growing up in Mickey Town, USA. ***That's Orlando, FL if you can't find it on the map.***

I think the black, white and red color palette is perfect to showcase this dark fairy tale. Kinda perfect for getting into the dark, 'Halloween-is-on-the-way', mood.

And the sentiments?? Just a little something to think upon. Kinda like a bit of character maintenance as you sip a cool beverage. Nice multitasking, no?

If you wanna see how this project came together, and learn how to whip up a few wickedly cool tiles of you own, hop on over and check it out!!

***OH! And if you're butterflyamanda on YouTube, you've just won TWO Saturated Canary digis of your choice! Thanks for your lovely comment on my video and a big CONGRATS!! Message me to claim your prize :-)***

A Little Birdie Told Me...

Good Morning!

I am so excited to be joining Sweet Nothings Stamp Co. and it’s very talented Design Team for our September Creative Challenge.

From now on, the 2nd Tuesday of every other month, we will run a Creative Challenge. Some months, the challenge may be a color palette to work with. Other months, it may be a theme or a layout. Every other month will be something new and creative for you to challenge yourself with :-) There will be a sweet little prize to be won as well!

For the month of September, we will be challenging you to create a project with this beautiful Autumn colour palette.

For my card, I've colored up Tomboy Sophie and her sweet little owl friend.

We All Scream For Ice Cream!

Hi Everyone!!

Today, I'm bringing you my very first project as a member of the Sweet Nothings Stamp Co. ranks. Eeep! Super excited!!

Ok, onto the goods...

For my project, I've colored up Ice Cream Cone Sophie. I think she's the perfect image for my Ice Cream Sundae Kit! I mean, c'mon. What better gift IS there than the gift of ICE CREAM??

How much do I love Sophie in super bright technicolor?!?? This girl can rock the neon!

And don't stop at ice cream, Friends!

Just think, you could create a rainy day kit full of fun activities to keep you busy while your stuck inside, with Rainy Day Sophie. Or maybe, a fun mani/pedi kit with Sassy Sophie. The list goes on and on!

Oh, and if you wanna see this project come together, hop on over and take a peek!

Thanks for stopping by!

Back To School? Yes, Please!!

Every year, while shopping for back to school supplies, I think of that silly Staples commercial..."It's the MOOOOSSST wonderful TIIIIIIME of the YEEEAARR!".

AMEN! Just sayin'.

Today, over on the Saturated Canary Youtube channel, my video for the lauch week is officially LIVE!!

Here's a little peek at the project...

Yep! That's TOTALLY a chalkboard calendar. I think the world is a better place because of chalkboard paint :-)

Saturated Canary's Sisters Back To School image was perfect for this project! How cute is that little girl??

Each of the segments represent a day of the week. Perfect to keep your kiddo (or yourself!) on track.

And the wide shot! My girl was having some fun with her chalk on our patio, so I thought it would be a perfect compliment to Momma's chalkboard. Kismet!

Now, hop on over and see how this project came together! And don't forget to subscribe and leave a comment on my video for your chance to win TWO digis of your choice from the Saturated Canary shop. Maybe tell me which back to school item you just can't resist picking up each year for yourself ;-)

Me? I'm a total composition book junkie. And WHERE did the Trapper Keeper go?!?!!? Ah, well.
