Cammy Wall

What do you like to do when you are not stamping/creating cards?I'm usually chasing after my kids.  My daughter is 4.5 and my son is 2.75.  They definitely keep me on my toes.  When they are not around or are asleep, I love Law & Order (all of them), NCIS (both) and to change things up, Sex & The City.  In the summer, I do my fair share of gardening (aka weed killing) & swimming.
How would you describe your style?Oh, boy....hmmm...I think clean is most accurate, but not CAS.  Everything has to have its own place & the right place.  I'm definitely not a speedy stamper!
What craft supply could you not live without?Only one -- definitely my Cuttlebug.  Between the embossing folders and my Nesties, it is rare that I create a card without one of them.  Close runner-up would be my Copics.
What are three words that describe you best?
Dedicated, thoughtful, creative (Is that cheating?  LOL!  I hear that all the time though -- Oh, you are so creative.)
What’s the best advice that you can give to someone that wants to be on a design team?Don't be discouraged if you apply and are not picked.  It takes time and it needs to be the right fit.  Think outside the box as well with your projects -- show them how truly creative you are.  :)

When you've finished here, off you go to Rae Anne's blog and whatever news she might have for you there. . .;) In fact, why don't you visit all the blogs of the Bugaboo Stamps DT, see what's (or who's) new there, jot it down, and send it in an e-mail to If you'll do that, we'll add your name to the pot for an additional prize drawing!!!

Artful INKables

Today marks another post for Artful INKables and I had to share this card I made using Berry Picking.  This set is so adorble and so could make the berries flowers even :)

I'm sorry about the quality of the picture. I took it with my phone this morning as I was running out the door to head to work.  I will put a better quality one later on tonight so you can see it clearly.

Happy Friday everyone!

EDITED: I have updated the picture, so hopefully you can see it better :)  Note to self, don't try to take a picture when you're running late for work LOL

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Twilight Layout

Kristin is attending a convention this weekend and wanted to showcase how well the stamps can be used on a layout, so she asked the DT if we could help out since she didn't have time do them all herself.  Well, since I am one of these people who will always step up to help someone, I couldn't say no.
My layout used the new Epic Tales set that can be found at the Artful INKables store and some scraps that I had laying around.  I hope you enjoy it :)

Are you ready for Easter?

I think I am :)  I finally got Abby's Easter basket stuff over the weekend and now it just needs to be assembled.  This week Lindsay asked the Design Team to create an Easter Project.  I had learned how to make pixie stix holders a couple weeks ago and wanted to make some more.

I found some "spring-y" paper in my stash and used the little duck from the Cute Easter set and this is what I cam up.  Of course, I couldn't find any pixie stix so I used some of Abby's candy.  They came out pretty darn cute :)

Challenges that this was submitted for:
