Inside my Heart...

This is inside the heart chipboard mini... Don't ya
just love the inside as well. It's like a Mini three
ring binder. And I'm pretty sure I could make some
more pages that would fit in there just right.
That's it. I think I got a lot for my money and then some
I'm so tickled with the sale, and think I will order again
when they have another Warehouse sale for Everyone.

I have a Heart...

Out of all the chipboard books I got in this box, I
do love this one out of all, lets just say, "I would
rank the heart shaped number "One" on my
fave's list. You have your cover shapped in a
heart and it's 6" tall, 6" wide. And there are 8
chipboard pages inside. I love the inside as well.

Did anyone say "Chipboard Minis"

Did anyone say Chipboard... Here goes some more...
One is in a shape of a Cupcake Chipboard Coaster Album...
2-piece covers +7 pages. 6.1" tall and 5x9. It's really cute
and love cupcakes too. This will be fun to alter. The other one says
"Tea Break, with 10 pages. It looks like a tea bag holder shape.
And the other is a Scroll Frame Chipboard accordion album.  It's held together with  little silver rings, you could also punch out the center frame.  This one is sure a different one.

So sorry about this pic, I don't know what went on.
Anywho... This is a pic of the metal lunch box that
has 84 pieces of different shapes and motifs. There
is a wide variety in this lunch box. Probably more
than what hubby gets in his. lol

Tins tins,oh how I love my Maya Road tins...

And the goodies that came in the tins from Maya Road...
There are a set of 28 clear stamps with images of clocks and their hands,
Maya Road Sheer Alphabets, the are pvc free and come in 60 pieces..You
can do what ever and altered them...alachol inks, chalks inks...dip them
in you hot Utte...Reminds me, I need to get my hot pot out and play, it's been
a while...lol oops didn't mean to go of the road...lol Maya Road Fresh Chipboard
Blossoms with 36 pieces and you can punch and use them separately as 72
pieces. I could paint them,sand them,crackle them,turn them into accents and more.

Oh and I almost forgot to tell you about the other tin
that is on the left side of this picture...they are "Log Cards"
1"to 5" and there are 40 cards.  They will be perfect journaling 
for projects and mini's. These are semi-clear non pvc
die cuts. I can write on them with a permanent marker
and I can attach them to my projects or minis with a staple,
glue or eyeltets.  Or put a bunch of them together and make
a mini album .  Which reminds me, I am going to do a 
Tb swap and one or two of these would be cool and neat
in them.

Maya Road

Forgive me these pictures a little blurry. Where I craft and play is on our kitchen table and our light is just above my work area...so there might be some glare. Thanks to a good friend about taking pictures, I will use the good advice the next time I take pictures of stuff. These two mini scrap books are acrylic, one is a longer one with the scalloped edges, and the other atc size,all pages are acrylic.

Maya Road "Winter Warehouse Sale"

Maya Road Winter Warehouse Sale....
Did you ever get emails and look in the subject line, and wondering what it's hinting to to entice you to open it? I would get this email every winter with the subject line "Maya Road's Winter Warehouse Sale. I would delete it because I figure it was like any other company that would have these big ole' sales, but they were just local for whomever lived near to run to their warehouse and stand and line and get the great buys. I know that Making Memories has them and on their blog they show all the MM fans waiting to charge in there and buy everything on sale. We other creative people don't get the chance to participate
because we don't live near or are living in that state. To make a long winded story short... I opened this said email and low and behold, it was for everyone, not just living near but for Everyone online as well. Yippie I thought to myself as I read this wonderful email. I took a chance and bought a box, knowing not what would be in this box, but I know I do like Maya Road and their tins of goodies and their chipboard books.
It was $49.99 (shipping and handling free). It was delivered by the way of Fed-Ex. I didn't know what to expect, just only it would be a full box of stuff from their warehouse.
Oh my..... Goodies and goodies of wonderful stuff... I was doing a happy dance when the
Fed-ex truck came down the drive way. I ripped it open and yet so careful... Yes this was a fun day for mail...lol Here are the things that I got, this is the first batch that I took out of the box.... (see picture up above ^).... Maya Road Mist (forest green metallic mist)...1/2 inch  25yds of ribbon that is almost like acrylic with dasmak and flower designs. Never seen this kind of ribbon before. Three packets of different ribbons and Maya Road rub-ons and a packet of Kraft Alphabet Tags... 30 pieces and 4 blanks... (ex...A is for Adorable...B is for Beautiful... F is for Friend...etc..) ... I have more pictures of the wonderful box I got from them and SO VERY PLEASED.. (can't you tell...lol ;) I have to get dinner done and run to the store, when I come back I will post the rest... keeping you in needles....lol

Christmas Card.....

I love this card that Amy made, it's lovely and what
a vintage look. Thanks Amy for the holiday thoughts
for my family and I. Love the poinsettias
and the
vintage ribbon you used. You do such good work.
Glad we met, just think, over a Bottle swap and look
where it's led. I love our little stash swaps that we
share with each other. What a treat to get them in
the mail. Amy sent me some goodies in with this
card... some vintage ribbon that I can't find and can't
get, she's sent me a good amount and it's much
appreciated, she has also made "Memo Pins", you
the kind like Tim Holtz's has out. Got to tell me
Amy what size wire you used. She had also
enclosed Making Memories stamps, which has
a pear with the clear stamps. I love pears, and
Amy remembered. Thanks for the goodies. I hope
you enjoyed you stash package I sent you. I love hearing
you Smile. It really is so much fun to send stash packages
to you. lol Thanks Girlfriend.

What did you do over the Holidays

Hi Everyone,
Hope all went well with you and your family over the holidays. For the first time ever in the Moore
family history... Hubby and our two sons and myself went to the movies. Yep, after a nice
dinner at home we went to the cinema and saw "Little Folkers", don't listen to the critics, if you
saw the first two movies, you will laugh your butt off in this one. I laughed so hard that
I had tears in my eyes. And it was number one on Christmas day for most watched movie and two
weeks in a row now. Critics were wrong... lol
What I did over the holiday.... it wasn't much, I just wasn't in the mood. The movie helped
though and made me feel so much better and needed a belly laugh that lasted all night.
I was rooting around in my addiction stash and ran across this wooden easel, perfect size for cards
and Atc's. I altered it by using Making Memoires Acrylic paint... the color I used was
Violet. I continued to alter the easel with ribbons that my generous sweet friend Amy sent me.
She made the yellow rose and I made some of the rosettes and used one underneath the rose she
made. And used some rub-ons that created "Art Work". It's a perfect size easel. And it
was only a buck from the dollar store. Hubby said it looks so much better and nicer and looks pretty
nice. Have you ever run across something that you found on a stash hunt and forgot you had?
What was it and what did you do with it?
Happy 2011!
