Feeling Crafty!

I have been really inspired to create lately, but alas, NO TIME! I really want to get my loft organized, I have been looking at all of the blogs that participated in the "Where Bloggers Create" blog party hosted by Karen at My Desert Cottage on June 19th. There are tons of very inspiring studios and craft rooms that make my jaw drop over and over again! When I go into my loft I can't imagine it EVER being organized again, it is so far gone.
Anyway, I did manage to make some pretty mod podged flowers from vintage sheet music that I scored a few months ago at a local antique consignment shop and a keychain too for my Etsy shop.

Thanks for stopping by! I will be back Friday for a Unity Friends With Flair post!

A Muse Fun!

I got the Happy Everything clear stamp set last week at One Little Spark, and I have to say it is quite addictive! You can make quick, easy cards that are super cute! Next, I want to break out my heat gun and emboss the word HAPPY, I think that sentiment is perfect for embossing, don't ya think?!

Whatever you are doing today~Have a HAPPY!

I made this CAS card for today's blog hop, but then I realized (a bit too late) that I used Unity stamps and today's hop is H{ippity} Hop, so I should've been using {ippity}. Silly, confused me!

Without enough time to make another card using {ippity}, I decided I would share my first {ippity} card that I made awhile back.

Sorry for my confusion!
Looking for some {ippity} of your own?! See my {ippity} blog for my Inventory Reduction Sale!
If you haven't been there today, make sure to stop by the {ippity} blog to see who else is hopping today!
Have a great week!

Donna Downey + Unity = Beauty!

Welcome to another Unity Friend's with Flair Blog hop post! If you want to win a prize, go to the Unity blog and visit all of the hop participants, if you leave a comment on the blog with the FWF blinkie, you may win a fun prize from Unity!

Instead of a card or layout, I decided to make coasters today. I love the Artist in You set by Donna Downey, so I inked up that set with a little Staz On and stamped onto tiles. After you are done stamping your image, spray the tiles with a few coats of acrylic sealer and voila! you have your very own set of waterproof beverage coasters!

Quick, easy, and they make a great gift!

We'll be celebrating Lukey's 4th birthday at Chuck E Cheese on Sunday, how about you? Any exciting plans?!

Have a great weekend!

Go With The Flow

Happy Monday!

For today's H{ippity} Hop I decided to finally ink up my Fishy Philosophy set that I've been wanting to use for some time now. After stamping and coloring the fish with Copics, I cut them out and popped them up on to the background. The background was stamped with Color Box and the new release Ranger Distress Inks on watercolor paper and the edges inked with Distress Inks as well. Paper Wings carries all of the new distress inks in every color and you can get the Color Box mini ink pads at One Little Spark.

If you would like to purchase Fishy Philosophy for $14.00, visit my Ippity Sales Blog while supplies last!

Thanks for visiting, click HERE for the Ippity blog to see the rest of the hop participants.

Have a great week! Nora Anne

Sending You A Little Happy for Friday's Friends With Flair


Even though it was a short week due to the holiday, it seemed to be a LONG week! And I'm happy it's Friday!

The card I made to share for this week's Friends with Flair Blog Hop is made with October Afternoon DP and the image is from February's Kit of the Month. I also used Ippity's A Bit of Burlap on the orange Bazzill. LOVE this stamp! The sketch is from the May issue of SNR Magazine.

My ippity/Unity supply is growing and I am sorry to say I don't know right now which set the sentiment came from as I have some organizing to do.

Thanks for stopping by! The next stop on the hop is Maria, or you can go back to the Unity blog for the full list of hop participants~you don't want to miss out on any eye candy!

Have a great weekend! xx, Nora Anne

There's A Mouse In The House!

A House Mouse, that is! I got this cute little stamp over the weekend at One Little Spark in Tuckerton. The sketch is based on the Mojo Monday sketch #140. This is the first card I've made in a long time where I used something other than Copics to color my image! this time I used my Koh I Noor pencils that I haven't used in ages! I think I need some practice and will have to make a few more cards with this cute little mouse.
Thanks for stopping by!
