Honorary Fairy!!

It's official. I am an honorary fairy for Prairie Fairy Designs- soon to be launched Digital Stamp Collection ! I am so excited for my BFF for putting her whole heart and soul into this. Finally her talents will be recognized by thousands! When she is not busy concentrating on her designs, she is painting gorgeous pictures on paper/canvas/walls, performing carpentry, installing bathroom fixtures, rearranging her BFF's house, cutting hair in her in home salon, preparing home made meals for her family or selling Epicure and Partylite. If anyone deserves for her dreams to come true it is this independantly beautiful woman! Love you babe!! Can't wait to do more cards for ya!

Christmas Tags

So, I know that Christmas is over, but here are a few ideas for those of you who like to make your own nick/nacks. So many different things can be done with stamp sets, it really is amazing. I made these for a lady who 'ordered' them from me. She was pleased with the result! I think I am going to do this for next year, but am going to have to start TODAY!! haha.
All of these were made with Stampin' Up stamp sets. Now that I have some CTMH sets, I will have quite the variety going on!
Hope everyone has a great New Year!

Two more Christmas cards for your perusal! Both the sets are from Stampin' Up. They were both fun to color. The Crab card is a shaker card. Took alot of time and patience for someone who is not creativily inclined at all!! haha! Papers a mix of miscellaneous & Stampin' Up. Sponging was used and embellisments include ribbon, brads, eyelets and wire!
It is Christmas Eve and I am going to make cookies now! Hope you all have a Wonderful Holiday SEason!!

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree...................

Ahhh..........the simplicity of it all. Call me crazy for getting in the spirit, but for the first time in my life myself and some fellow friends and co-workers are going Christmas Carolling on December 23!! Should be both fun and interesting! Perhaps we will sing "O Christmas Tree". This card was inspired again, by the Magic Snowflake technique from The tree stamp is from Stampin' Up. Paper & ribbon from CTMH & embellishments could be from just about anywhere!! I added a bit of glitter to the centers of some of the swirls on the tree!! Hope this gets you in the spirit to share some holiday joy !!

So this is Christmas..............................................

It's beginning to look alot like Christmas!! 6 more days!!
Here are a couple of my creations.
Once again the elf set is from CTMH, I just decided to go with 'not so traditional colors'. I liked the way it turned out! The backgroud purple color is from a set of 'homemade papers' I purchased at a store in the city. It is fabric-like! Worked very well with this card. Organdy ribbon is from CTMH.
The other cards are made using the "Magic Snowflake" technique I picked up off of Splitcoaststampers. They have alot of great techniques there! You need ink refills, rubbing alcohol, cotton balls, white embossing powder and a heat tool...............the magic touch is glossy cardstock! NOT PHOTO PAPER! The technique will not work with glossy photo paper, it HAS to be glossy card stock! Believe me, I've tried numerous times to make it work!
Hope you are having a great time shopping and prepping for Christmas!

Christmas Cards

Here are just a couple of examples of some Christmas Cards I did this year. The stamps are from CTMH as are some of the papers. Green Organdy ribbon is from CTMH as well. Little labels are made with cuttlebug templates! Here's to hoping Santa is watching so I can get a Cuttlebug machine of my VERY OWN this year, rather than having to run to the Fairy's house to use hers!


No I am not lost! Thought maybe I was losing my mind (since June), however I recently have found it, and will try to be more active with my blog activity. Hopefully posting once a week.

We'll see though considering I am expecting child #3 in February! Yes, that has been occupying most of my brain (baby brain- as it is so eloquently called). Busy with preparations for Christmas, as of late, preparations for baby, since the finding out of same on Father's day, and preparations for a 1 year of maternity leave! Oh the joy of it all.

I have also been praparing for the launch of my best friends/neighbors/delivery coachs' website PrairieFairy Designs (digitally stamped images). Although I have been as loyal to her as I have been to my very own website, this is the primary reason I hope to get on track. She deserves my support & commitment; & I intend to give it to her, as much as I possibly can! Sorry Bert!!

So stay tuned for a new & improved FancyFree4ever blogspot!!

more pages for the coffee table book

Coffee Table album

I put together this little 6X6 pre-made scrapbooking photo album for my friend who is expecting her baby any time now! This little album was purchased thru CTMH and the inside pages were made/supplied by moi. All she has to do is insert her photos, place on her coffee table and let everyone enjoy her baby's pictures!!

Bridal/Wedding shower card

Hello folks. You are never going to believe this, but I made this card the other night at the Fairy's house..................ALL BY MYSELF. Ok, so maybe she had a little input into the bouquet arrangement , however the basic layout, colors and sponging (yes , my name is Corry and I am a sponge-a-holic) was me! All me!! Ms. Prairie said this is one to be proud of and I take that as a compliment. I used the tickled pink paper pack & embellishements, the "She's all that" CTMH stamp set & CTMH ribbon (is that organza?)

This card is for a good friend of mine who is having her bridal shower tomorrow in Wpg. Hopefully she does not check out my page regularily (as she is in fact one of my 4 followers)!! I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it!! TTFN

PS-OOOOOoooooooooo look at the magical watermark the Prairie made for me!!! Yay!

I made this card for my bro's b-day. He loves his toys, so thought I would incorporate a slightly different version of what he owns. He's 43.....& gets a kick outta my cards!

Ready for School.

First of all, today is my birthday..................Happy birthday to me. 29 & holding!!!!
Secondly, I am off to sleep (right now) as I work the graveyard shift, so if anyone goes celebrating my birthday without me, please have a couple drinks for me!!
Thirdly, I could not forget to post my newest creation courtesy resources list! This template is adorable and even if this backpack took me 2 hours to do (the first time), I will definitely be making more of them! It is so cute and fun to do. I put a picture of our phone beside the backpack to give you an idea of it's actual size.
Don't forget to check out the SplitCoastStampers website for more ideas!!

An oldy but a goody. I apologize for not being a dedicated blogger. Many things on the go right now, with Spring cleaning, clothes shopping/organizing, house remodelling & , oh ya, just trying to enjoy some days off from work.....does not leave alot of spare time. As you all well know, I'm sure. Summer is just around the corner!! Yay, sunshine.
This is my four seasons 'Waterfall' card, template taken from Splitcoast stampers. (God I love that site)!
Here's to wishing you all a great mothers day, holiday, any! Cheers!

Kickin' up dirt.

Yet another CTMH stamp set that I just HAD TO HAVE when I first looked at the catalogue!! I had fun playing with this one. Got the layout from Iris's blog (thanks to Prairie Fairy), with my own lil' twist. Perfect boy card!

Chuggin' along........................

So, I started this card about 5 days ago and finally finished this evening. I got this CTMH stamp set a few weeks ago and have been dying to use it! This is actually a 'bigger than normal' card. Thank god I have lots of oversized envelopes!

For all you mommy's out there!!

Thanks to Prairie for her layering, sponging and "Ms. on the go" stamp set, I was able to create this card for all you mommy's out there (actually for one mom in particular). Turned out pretty good I'd say!

A day in the life.........................

Like I said before, bare with me I am not always going to be here (So Back Off Fairy-you blog-a-holic!! -lol).

I am currently at work. Just finished eating a whole lotta junk food. NIGHT SHIFTS- gotta love em! Super excited today, we went to Selkirk (fell asleep on the ride home) & bought an external hard drive for our computer. So far it has taken like 6 hrs to transfer all my pictures (thanks hon!). Once home from the Selkirk trip (2:45 pm), I went to sleep in preparation for my night shift. MAN, did I sleep well!! Got to love when that happens. So here I sit, no cards to post, no scrapbook pages to unveil, just me and my words! Love to all ! Going to check out Prairies Candy post. Later.
