New Fall release at Lalaland Crafts!



Hey all! It's World Card-making Day today and in celebration of this wonderful occasion, I  wanted to announce that Lalaland Crafts is releasing a new series of fall 2011 stamps along with a Harajuku line going on sale today!!
 They are super cute and so versatile too!!! The stamps are on pre-order and orders placed today will be sent out before Oct.15th. I used this super-cute image of Big Panda Marci and she is colored with Copics. Here's a list of the colors I used: Skin: E00, E000, E11, E21, R20, BV000, Hair: Y32, E31, E33, E35, Clothing: RV02, RV04, RV06, R85, C1,C3, C5, C7, C9, Panda: C1, C3, C7, C9, W1, R00, R20
And now, on to some other news-sadly, this is my last creation with LaLaland Crafts as I am taking some more university courses for my Post-Bac degree, am teaching full-time and juggling being a single parent as well and I can't commit my time fully anywhere else. Many of you crafters are living similar situations as I am, but I just feel that I'm not working to my fullest potential and when I feel let down with my creations, I feel I'm letting my team down as well.
And so, I would like to thank Irina for having given me this great opportunity to create on such a wonderful design team and I wish all the DT nothing but the best as they are a wonderful group of ladies with outstanding talent. Thanks again-God Bless! xox Trish :)

Thanks Coach!!


Hey all! Just wanted to share this card that I made last month at my son's request. He saw this adorable image from Pollycraft  from the Swings and Slides collection and insisted I buy it and make a card for his soccer coach. He told me "Coach won't like girlie stuff, so make it manly!!" I just about burst my sides from laughing so hard!!

I'm only going to give it at the end of soccer season, as they're only having their first game tonight after the summer vacation break. BTW, I think this image totally looks like my son-shaggy hair right now and big brown eyes!! Hope u like! Enjoy your day! xox Trish :)

Inspirational Monday- Anything But A Card and Last Week's Stitching-Real or Faux!


Here are the copics I used to color Marci below:




Grrrr! Hey all-has anybody else been having a love/hate relationship with Blogger or is it just me and my computer!!!! Happy Labour Day to all, and it saddens me that I have to see my Summer holidays end and re-enter the world of the working class tomorrow...ugh. My kids are excited about starting school, so I guess that's a sign that they've had their fill of Summer and are ready to hit the books-LOL !!
So, today is Inspirational Monday over at Lalaland Crafts and the challenge this week is to make a creation other than a card. I used Pumpkin Marci and just used her head to fit in this super-cute bookmark that was made for me by a friend.
 Last week's challenge was to add some real or faux stitching to your creation. That post was impossible to publish...it just kept saying Error!! I used my machine to sew around the card, but u can't really see the stitches, unless u zoom into the photo...ugh!
I used the Mermaid Marci image for the second creation and she is colored with Copics. Here's a list of how I've colored her:
Hair: Y21, Y23, E31, E33, Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R20, Scales, starfish, bathing top: BV000, BV00, BV01, BV02.

Enjoy your week, I know I will try to cherish every last bit of today!! Hope u like! xox, Trish :)

Photo Inspiration!


Here's the photo inspiration:
Challenge #58 Inspiration Photo
Hey gang! It's Friday and it's the beginning of another long week-end here in Canada! Whoop-Whoop-doesn't affect me really because I'm on holidays, but to all of those who usually work-it's great!

So, it's been forever since I posted a card for Fairy Fun Fridays challenge, but the DT split the crafting responsibility for the summer, so we'd have a longer break. Lori A is the host for this challenge and she chose the photo above for inspiration.

My card looks crooked or something because of the corner tabs and how I angled the image. IDK, maybe it's my eyes playing tricks on me. Hope u like! Have a great week-end! xox, Trish:)

Inspirational Monday-Step card




Hey gang! It's time for another Lalaland Crafts Inspirational Monday. The theme this week was to follow tthis step-card pattern which you can follow as well here! I used this super-cute image of Mermaid Marci.I've been seeing the use of cheescloth more and more on cards and love it-but was afraid to use it! I saw my good friend Lori use some cheesecloth on a mermaid card she made about a month or so ago and loved the flowy look so much,  I decided to incorporate some here as well-it turned out alright I think. There wasn't enough room for my usual flowers!! LOL-The sentiment is from Pink Cat Studio.

Marci is colored with Copics:  Hair: YR00, YR68,E 97, E99, E19, E17, E13
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20,BV0000

 Hope u like! xox, Trish:)

Make an Ornament!


Hey all! OMG-I just went on my blog and I posted this for July 18th instead of the 17th-no wonder I couldn't see this post-jumping ahead of myself here! This creation for Totally Tilda's challenge was supposed to be posted this morning!! Oy vay! So this is the challenge-make an ornament using a Tilda image of course! I used an old CD -passed a ribbon through it, glued a doily behind the shiny side ( it looks really shiny and glittery when it turns and catches the light) and then some DP on the front. Add Tilda and some WOC flowers and voilĂ ! I'm pleased with the result! Hope u like! xox Trish :)
