Where o Where...

I was checking everyones blogs and noticed that Stampin with Bubbasprincess (Stacy) had put a call on us (members of SBS) for doing a rak and some other stuff. Check it out, she mentions the Rak on the Dec. 11 entry.

Have a great Holiday.

PhotoShop Elements 6

I finally decided to get PhotoShop Elements 6. I was just going to use what was loaded on the pc which I believe was Phototshop Starter Elements, then I downloaded the free trial of elements and played with it. It has me intrigued and I want to know more. Don't ask me how I stumbled on it but the PSE6 newsletter was very help. I was sold.

Still Making Cards

Boy I am still making cards. LOL!!!. Here are some of the other cards that I have made

What do you Think?

I was just checked on the web and someone already calls themselves JazzyDesigns so I am going to change mine, but I don't know what I should do. So I am thinking about following:

SydneyD Designs

SydneyD Creations

ChanderHill Designs

Darsel Designs

S.Darsel Designs

Or should I just keep it JazzyDesigns.

I am partial to SydneyD Designs because it is my daughters' name and that she didn't
live long, so that way I will always thinking about her. I don't need a name of do that but it just makes me warm and fuzzy feeling.

Boy it has been a long time

Well it has been a long time I have posted. I had good intentions and then I was tired a bit, then I just wasn't motivated. Don't know why.

I did clean up my room but then again I messed it up again. Well something good happened I finally fiinshed the cards I was done for my friends cards. Thank goodness ! (wiping brow) But lets not focus on what I could have done better but what I have done. Yeah me. !!!!!

I finally started my christmas cards and I got some of them done (let me see 3) Oh that funny. Well I went to the store because of course I ran off adhesive. Man I just didn't realize how much I use. I need a good deal on buying adhesive. Any suggestions?????
Back to what I was saying, I went Archivers (you would think I would know better) but I had a good intentions to just go get the adhesive and then come home but..... of course they had to have the stamps showcased for the sesaon and I liked 2 of them by Impression Obession they were both of Crhistmas trees but a little twist on them. I was good I didn't get them but who knows......

So then I starting thinking I don't want snowmen for my theme but Christmas trees. and now of course I don't have a lot of Christmas trees and that means I have to purchase more. HEHEHEHEHE...........

First Challenge

Here is a card I made for the challenge from Split Coast.

Simple card because I wanted the paper from the card to take center change. Simple but Nice.

Encoustic Wax

I took a class a couple of weeks ago where you make cards using printed napkins and wax. It is hard to explain but we tore the napkins and then used beeswax to create a card. I am not good at explaining techniques. My teacher was Rosemary Marino . Now I am on a quest for printed napkins.
Printed Paper Napkins
Clear Beeswax
Colored Beeswax
Red Line Tape
Sorry for the bad pictures I need to learn how to use Photoshop Elements so I can edit and crop them. Maybe I will get a new camera for Christmas.

Found This

Sorry I haven't posted in a but I am having stamping block, if that is a word. No matter, I was reading my email and I found the newsletter from Lisa Volrath and she has a Christmas countdown where you can reveal things each day. I figure it would be nice to have a present every day. The link is Christmas Countdown.

Paper is Coming........

I finally picked out my color scheme for my christmas cars. Purple and Blue and of course some traditional colors. The line is The Paper Company, Heidi Grace Designs

Just the start of cards.......

Well I have been working on the Christmas cards that I am going to make. Here are samples. I think I really like Twinkling H2O, they are so much fun. The angel stamp is from Stamp a Mania and the navitity is from Northwoods.

Sorry for the bad picture quality

I have been TAGGED..........

I was reading my comments and I believe Aimee tagged me, . :)

Here are the rules…………..Please answer the questions on your blog and tag 5 more people to answer the same questions……….make sure you list on your blog who you are tagging….Thanks!!

1. If you could have 100.00 worth of scrapbook paper or assorted embellishments, which would you choose?
Boy that is hard do I have to choose????. I would choose embellishments if I have to pick because I have plenty paper I need to use.

2. If you had to choose between using only stamps or ribbons, which would you choose?
Hands Down Stamps !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

3. If you knew how to do both awesome cards and layouts but could only do one for a whole year…which would you do?
It would do awesome cards because I have instant gratification more or less when I make cards. I still have so many many pages to scrap.

4. Would you rather own a scrap booking store or have your own scrapping room at home…(can’t have both he he he).
I think I would pick scrap room and then have people over.

5. What is your CURRENT card making or scrapping style?
I don't have a style, I like to try new techniques but I do like texture when I make cards.

Tag you are It

First Entry

This is my first entry, I was reading the forum on Split Coast Stampers for stamper and blogging and I was inspired. I am a little nervous but have to start somewhere. I also realize my Monk tendency are coming out (this relates to the show called Monk). LOL!!!!
