Cards for MsClaudia fundraiser.

Hello Jewels!

   Don't know if you have heard, but one of our youtube scrap-sisters is in need of our help her name is Claudia and this is a link to her YT channel. Please send her a note and keep her in your thoughts and prayers. (66msclaudia)

  Jade at jadedstudios on YT and has put together a fundraiser, go to her YT channel for info. What she is asking for are for volunteers to make a set of 10 identical cards for her to make packets to sell on her blog and the proceeds will go to Claudia. I thought it was an awesome Idea and I couldn't say no. I want to be part of something helpful, anything to help anyone in need. I have always said I don't make card cuz I can't think of how to place layers or images...I have recently become more willing to learn. So, the best thing to do for me is to watch videos and look at pics form other blogs, but my favorite is going to my mags! I love searching for inspiration  from my mags, not that  I don't from videos or blogs, it's just that I can take mags anywhere. I don't have the internet everywhere I go. So I pick on up or grab one from home and read and fold in pages to go back to!:)

This is my set of cards I made for Jade's fundraiser. I did get an inspiration from "Stampler's Sampler" summer 2010 edition. It's a very simple card using Muslin! But I wanted to go further and add some additional but personal touches to it! 

The 1st pic is what I saw in the mag, then mine follow. 
I have them ready for the post office now. I hope they all sell!!!

Your in my prayers Ms Claudia! Thank you Jade for taking this on...I'm sure there will be a huge response for it, bless your heart sweetie!

Thanks to everyone who participated in donating your talent, your heart, your supplies, your money...may you all be blessed and the act returned to you with love!!

I have posted a video of this card set here. Thanks for watching too! :)

Just a little announcement!

Hello My friends!

Well, I'm gonna be leaving this weekend to see my kids in Los Angeles! I am so excited!!! It's been 3 weeks and I don't know how I did it! 3 whole weeks!!....oh, then I'll be there for 7-10 days.'s the announcement..?.. It's that although, I will be gone, the blog store will remain open. I will be adding some things after this post and orders can be placed, just know that it will get filled while I'm here....through Saturday and/or Sunday....not quite sure yet. But I do plan to return on Aug 4-5th.  So if there are any orders while I'm gone, I'll be sending them to you ASAP!!!

While in L.A. I will be bringing home some goodies to show and to share. I can't wait to see what I find!!! You'll have to wait and see too! haha

I will be posting as normal while there!
 Below is a picture of my leg. I got inked a couple years ago in L.A. My very very first TaT, the names of my babies with an orange Lily flower (One of my favorite flowers) in the middle, between their names.....just sharing!:) xoxo Jules:)

I miss my babies!

Hi people!

  Well, my kids are gone....been gone since the 1st and I miss them so much....I feel sad most days. But, I'll be able to go see them and bring Anna home. My sweetie is gonna buy me a ticket for next weekend to go to S. Cali. I'll be able to spend about 7-10 days in Los Angeles. The best part ....or one of the best parts is that I'll be there for my son Manny's 20th birthday and then bring Anna home with I can torture her once again! haha 

  One of Anna's rules while gone was that she is to call us every 2 days and we won't hound her.....she's late by a day, so I guess I should go charge up my phone!

  While Manny was here we couldn't go out a lot. We did go out to eat a couple times, and out here everything is so far away.But now I'll be able to go see them in a week and a half!  yay mom!!

  Anyways, I didn't take as many pics as I should have, but when I had to pick up my parents from the airport, Manny offered to drive with me. When we d id,we went to Carl's Jr for a late dinner, and my poor little parents were starving, here's a pic of Manny and me messing around. 

Excuse my scrubby appearance, I had no make-up and had my sweats on!

Mommy wanted a kiss!!...I get what I want! haha
 I love my kisses. He was smiling......he's so cute! Love my boy! By the way, he made the Deans List this last quarter!!! whoop whoop!!!! Go baby boy! This is his dad's side....them darn brainiacs!

 Look at my little parents! My mom is barely 4'11" or so, and my papa is 5'2 or 5'3 .....he was a Jockey (raced horses) back in the day! He's over weight compared to what he was when he was racing. Actually he was thin like Anna....bones, muscular but still! Aren't they cute?!

They were so tired when we picked them up from the airport. See m mom was kinda falling asleep....her little eyes are droopy, poor little thing. My dad was swallowing his last bite of his fries for the pic, but he sure loves his "Famous Star" meal from Carl's Jr.! was so late.

Here are my babies leaving together. Manny Jr. wanted to take Anna with him because he was scared for her flying by herself, so he wanted to "school" her. I thought is was so cute. Tell me how happy do they look? Flying standby sucks sometimes so they weren't looking forward to it thinking they would miss a flight or 2 or 3! Thank God they made all the flights!!!
I can't wait to see them again! Ah, so hard letting them go. I can't believe how grown they are!! Manny will be 20 at the end of this month and Anna is 15 1/2! ahh...God help me! haha

Catch ya guys later!! Thanks so much for stopping by!

xoxo Jules:)

6x6 DressForm layout for my sister!!


I wanted to share some detail pics of this 6x6 LO I made for my sister Lisa! I have a very different project that has got me stumped and I have just been staring at it for the last 4 days, maybe longer....I can't seem to get the mojo I started on another project...Lisa's LO (layout).

I made this over a span of 2 days. I was packaging some die cut orders of my Dress Forms and it hit I finished up and got to work! 

Video at the end of this post if you wanna hear how I made it.  Please leave a comment and let me know what you think....oh...and is it still a layout if there is no picture? wonder...but that's what I'm calling it!     
My Layout for Lisa!!

In the first 2 pics, I want to point out that I changed 1 thing around....can you see it?...look hard.....ok, if you guessed the bookplate...your's not there. At the last moment before making the video, I remembered I had them, so I took out the metal rimmed tag and moved it to the other side. I like it much better now though! 

Here is the finished LO. It is much fuller with the Bookplate and the word charm "Sister" and the little heart charm...oh, I just remembered, a friend gave me that heart charm, it's perfect hanging there!

This last one is similar to the first one in this set, but it is a different angle and is up a little closer.
Here is the video!

*Remember you can double click on the images and enlarge them!! Very cool!!

Thanks everybody for stopping by. Leave a comment and remember these die cuts are for sale at this post here. 

Thanks you guys!

xoxo Jules
