Art Impressions If It Zips....It Fits!!!!

Hello AI Fans!!
Ok....so how many of you can relate to THIS one??!! LOL!!! I know I sure can! I can definitely remember when I was younger,  laying down on the bed to get my jeans to zip up! Yep, I'm being seriously honest right now. And I bet that there is more than one of you out there that have done the same thing! LMBO! I ADORE this stamp set called "If It Zips Set"  (sku# 4669) from Art Impressions. 

I made this into an easel card and I just HAD to make a zipper for the front of it. So I used a Silhouette file and combined it with a Prima zipper trinket.

Papertake Weekly - It's time for some FUN!!

Wow, can you believe how fast the weeks are flying by??!!  It's time for a new challenge at Papertake Weekly, and this week Dawny's new challenge is FUN, FUN, FUN! You can interpret that any way you want to.  We are sponsored this week by the fab folks over at the Hobby House!

I took a class last weekend at Scrapbook Paradise, and I had so much fun putting this frame together that I HAD to use it for this challenge!!  This was designed and taught by Darlene. LOVE her work!! This frame is amazing and I can't wait to see it with a picture in it! Unfortunately, this picture of it does NOT do this justice. It's really washed out. This is when I wish I'd gotten Ott floor lamps instead of all desk lamps.

Please be sure and pop over to Papertake Weekly to check out all the FUN creations by the DT, and then we'd love it if you'd play along with us! Thanks so much for stopping by to visit today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!

Art Impressions Twinkle in a Tangle!

Hello AI Fans!!
Happy Weekend! So are you knee deep in Holiday preparations? Today I wanted to show you a fun Christmas card featuring the adorable Twinkle in a Tangle Set from the new Christmas Stamps from Art Impressions! I am so in love with this cute couple!! As soon as I saw them, I knew I wanted to go with the "countrified" version instead of the standard  bright red and green. So I pulled out some papers from Carta Bella called Warm and Cozy and went to work.

Here's a little bit closer view. If you click on the picture, you'll be able to see the details much better. 

Copics used:  E11, E00, E000, R20, YG61, YG63, G28, E08, C1, C3, Y23, Y26, E13, E15, E31, E33, E35

So that's it for me today! Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit, and I hope you have some time this weekend to get crafty!
