Stampin-Mami's November's Featured Artist.........Gina K....(applause!!!)

Every month I will hopefully be bringing you
Stampin-Mami's Featured Artist...
This month's featured artist is none other than Gina K.........(read and enjoy)
**by all means leave your comments I would love to read what you think!!!!**


Q and A with Gina K
SM: What got you into stamping or the paper crafting world?
GK: * A friend of mine invited me to a Stampin' Up party. The rest is history. LOL!
SM: How did you come to the conclusion of designing your own stamps?
GK: **Many times I just couldn't find the right stamp so I would draw a little picture instead and then color it in. My family and friends said that I should make my own stamps. I didn't believe them but then, more and more people started to tell me that so I thought I'd take a chance.**
SM: What was your first ever stamp?
GK: ***If you could remember, lol. The first one I bought was the stamp set Nice and East notes by Stampin' Up. The first stamp I drew was The Three Amibos.***
SM: How long did it take you to notice that stamping was your true passion?
GK: ****About 3 minutes. Actually, once I tried it, I spent the next 6 months going to every stamping store and big box craft store that I could find.****




SM: How many Gina K elves do you currently have working for and with you?
GK: *****My friend Judy, when she has time. My husband when he has time and my two little girls when they want money.*****
SM: If you could take a trip to anywhere in the world where would
it be and with whom?
GK: ******I would go to Italy with my husband and my two daughters. I'm actually a little afraid to go because I don't think I would ever come back. (I'm Italian, yes.)******


SM: Do you ever regret going full force into the Stamping world?
GK: *******Never. I love what I do. I sleep fast so I can get back to it.*******


SM: What was the best stamping time you ever had?
GK: ********I hosted a stamping event at a Bible camp a couple of years ago and that was great. It was so great to have both my creative side and spiritual side fed in one retreat.********
SM: Where would you consider opening up another store? (in what state?)
GK: *********Not right now. I am pretty happy with just one and I love having my online store. My hope is that my two daughters will work with me as they get a little older. That would be the ultimate!*********




There it is folks.....I hope you all enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed asking!




GINA.........I wanted to thank you Gina for honoring me with this Q and A,
I can truly say that this was a privilege of all privileges, not many people
get to talk to the one person that they admire. Since I have come onto the
Stamping World Frenzy I look forward to getting your newsletters
and daily blogs everyday.


I hope that other Stamping Companies will be as gracious as you when I ask
them to do a small feature on my blog.
You are the Stamping Queen at least on my Blog.
Although my kids do not know how truly important it was for me
that you did this, they are all very excited and happy that Mom got
an interview with Gina K.


My next goal will be to finally meet you one day in the not too distant future,
Maybe my next trip will be to your little corner of the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you so very much.

Oct 20, 2007

Whewwww, Im tired now! But I have one more to go

I saw this sketch of the card on one of the blogs I have linked here or maybe from CPS or SCS, I will not take full credit for the card because I cannot
remember where I got it from but I remembered more or less how the
card looked and wanted to try my hand at this....

I saw this and thought that this was a very unique style and I just
loved it..... so I sat in my little corner of the room and started to
get the papers together and looking around for which ink to use...
I. ended up using the Triple ink colors that makes it look like
a rainbow.. I dont have the ink pad in front of me if not I would
write the correct name but any whooo......

Here is the end result...
Cuttlebugs, ribbons, glitter glue, glaze and
Stamps from Michaels $1 Bin.............







Ok here is a little PIF of my own!!!!

The first 3 people to comment on the previous post of the "PIF" will get a small goodie something from me. So come on leave your comments and get a little goodie, you must tell me what if anything you have Paid Forward to someone else.
I hope to hear from yall soon!
****also send me your snail mail to mvega914@yahoo.com and place
YOUR BLOG PIF on subject line. ******
Just so you know, your goody something will go out towards the end of next week as that is when I will be able to do so!!!!

So I got home on Thursday and found this happy Mail

I joined in on the PIF (Pay it Forward) fun on the SCS site. and STAMPINSTEL sent me these goodies....
  • Color paper
  • Pair of Earrings (made by Stampinstel her self)
  • Flowers
  • oval scallops
  • and some really cute Snap Ease Fasteners from Rob and Bob studio of Provo Craft
  • oh yea and some Petite Metal Signage

The fasteners were the most cutest thing ever....you just pop the snap ease embellishment thru the project your doing and snap it securely in place.... tooo cutey patoootey....

If your reading this Lastel, thank you again for your cute gifts and I hope you enjoy your package, please let me know when it arrives....!




I have been a busy bee these past few days!!!!

The kids had a little tin box of War Heads candy laying around in the room and I saw it and a light bulb went off... lol....

So I began to think "hmmmm... I can use this for something...." so I started searching around and brainstorming and decided to come up with this.



My try at the Acetate Cards.......

Ok, so here is my Acetate Card and out of a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet, I was able to get two cards. I think it turned out pretty good


I got alot of ooohs and ahs from the home front! :)
None the less I tried my hand at it and I had lots of fun creating
them, I was soo excited... now I dont feel like an outsider any more
I can finally say that I have been there and done that......!!

Pink- get the party started

heres another one

Pink - Who Knew (LIVE)

SHe is one of my Favorite Singers....

Just wanted to let you know!

Ok so I haven't been posting as much I would love to, believe me if I could spend the day doing cards and paper crafting all day, I would, but life is not that easy right now...
I see all the other SAHM and WAHM's blog sites and I wish I could do the same,
but in time I will be one of those mom's Trust me. I am working on that.
So I have gotten the "ITCH" to design my own line of Rubber Stamps, although it wont be as elaborate as those like Gina K, or Cats Pajamas, Stamping bella,
but slowly but surely I will have my own little company going..
So with that said, please be keep an eye out for my blog because I will be looking for some Designers to help me with making my stamp images..I have some local people
already that have made some really cool things, and I as well have drawn out some things, and GINA K and EmmyBella, MY HAT IS OFF TO YOU ladies and all those
others that I cannot remember right now, this is not easy but it is oh sooo much fun. So
if you have any advice for me please I am all ears. You are my inspiration
and I am glad that I was introduced into the Stamping and Paper Crafting World.

Friday's Inspiration Challenge!

Ok so I was looking through Maria Bell's Blog and I saw that she had this challenge!
So Maria since you were the inspiration for this, I would like to post this challenge that I got from you little corner of the World, I hope that you do not mind.

CHALLENGE!
(does that not remind you of JOHN Travolta in the movie MICHAEL), :)
FRIDAY's Inspiration Challenge!
Here are the rules with a twist, Maria!

  • 1. Make a card of any design or theme. It has to be a Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas card.
  • 2. Create a tag that matches the card.
  • 3. The tag has to have the same elements as the card. No new elements can be added to the tag that the card don't have. You don't have to use all the elements of the card but you just can't add any additional elements to the tag. Got it? !
  • For example, you must use the same colors, papers, materials, ribbons, whatever that the card has.
  • You can't add additional embellishments, color combo, techniques, etc. to the tag. The point is the tag has to match the card.
  • 4. The only added element that can be used on the tag that the card does not have are the words (TO: and From:).
  • 5. Card and tag can be of any size or shape.
  • 6. Card and tag don't need to be rubber stamped. You may paper craft, draw, add embellishments, paper piece whatever you want to do is acceptable.

****OK check this out! While I was in my world this morning, I totally forgot to look out for my sons Bus to school, and Yes he missed it! So with that said, I had to rush and change clothes cause I was still in my jammies, run to take him so that he could be on time! GEESH! We moms get into the stamping gig and lose all track of time huh!****

Ok Back to the Challenge! I will give this Challenge until Friday of Next week which is the 28th I do Believe. Send your photos to this email address: mvega914@yahoo.com The best one will receive a small prize. I still have yet to figure out what it is! But it will be cute and small.

So ladies get to it, I will be doing mine as well and will post it up later on tonight!

Sep 20, 2007

Ok so here are the things from the Generous Freecycler!


Isnt that the most wonderful things you could ever see! I am always getting emails from the Freecycle.org group that I belong to in my county and when I saw the email that Stated
Offer: Stamps and Stamping supplies, I jumped on it and asked the lady to please let me know if the items were available and if I could have them, as you can see this was the response!
The stamp in the middle says:
"We have not inherited the earth from our ancestors
we are borrowing it from our children"
Ponder on that for a bit and let me know your thoughts on that stamp!
So please go take a look at the site
Freecycle.org and check to see if there is a group in your area
you have no idea what you can find there.
I have gotten complete bedroom sets for my children for FREE!
Your offer something first and so on and so forth, its like a
Pay it forward type thing! and for those mom's who
are a single parent this website is a God sent, because
sometimes you get great stuff , brand name stuff, for FREE
so with that said. I am off to work and I am back at noon
to be able to play with all my new GEAR!!!!!
Take care Ladies and Happy Stamping, PaperCrafting!
Can you tell im Psyched!

My DH and KIDS are the Best!





























well, well, well, I must say that all of you ladies out there have the best DH's for supporting our crazy Habit of Stamping and all it entails.
BUT, I must Say that My DH and my kids are the best in the World. Check out all these goodies I received as a Surprise from Michael's!
The Halloween Stamps are from MARTHA STEWART, a new cuttlebug Folder, alot of stamps from the $1 Bin, clear and mounted,
Christmas Stationary and Envies for personalized letters from Santa!
and he knows how much I love Rachel Ray, so he got me the new
Magazine thats on Stands now! Im flipping out here.
My Fav, fav, fav, item of all is the new Butterfly Pop Out Punch !
I could hardly contain myself let me tell you! In another post, I will
show you what I got from a local Freecycler near my town.
I tell ya, yesterday's day was a bit of a doozy, but it turned out Great!!!!

Finals are Coming!

Finals are coming. I have two more weeks of school and we are getting ready for Finals! Then I get one week off , YAY.
The kids are off to school next week and they are looking forward to it.
Well I'll be back soon!

Toot Toot TOOT my own horn!

Some new cards that I made last night out of 1 sheet of 12 x 12. I even managed to get a Gift Card holder in there. Oh yea and then I used the Missy B Pumpkin stamp with one of my clear
Scrolling Stamps and created my own Patterned Paper and then I colored the details in with
my Prisma and other brand of color pencils and
the results were AMAZING!!!!

I have seen others do there own patterned papers and I got into the groove yesterday and out came this paper! I am really tooting my own horn here.
As soon as I get back home later on I will be posting the
card and gift card holder,I even got a
small ATC Card!

My new Missy B Designs card and another Notebook!










So I gave in to buying some Missy B Designs and I finally got them in last week. Well I must say that I love these as well. The card I made was cased from Stamping Roxy's blog page. She was doing a tutorial on her technique on tying bows. She made a really beautiful "Z" card fold and thats what I used. My bow left little to be desired so I omitted it from this card. I will use my technique of bow tying and add it the other cards I will be making.


This card had the Halloween Ladies from Missy B,
along with the spiders and bats. I think it was truly a
very unique card. Thanks Roxy for the card style.
The notebook was just another thing I had in mind to do for a long time now and just got around to doing it this weekend.
It was a bit time consuming as it was bigger than the first one but none the less I managed to finish it.
Not too much embellishment but I still have to add some other little things to it.. When they are completed I will post that pic as well..


Hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by my page...

My first ever Notebook!







This was the first ever little notebook I did! It took a bit of time to do the little holes for the wire but none the less I did it ! With a pen to match!

The pictures may come out big I apologize the kids were taking pics and messed
with the sizing. Hope you all like the cards and the notebook!
Comments are welcomed! lol Have a great day!

Getting back into the Swing of things!!!



Here are a few cards that I created of my own design sort a speak. One of the Deans from the college I go to liked the sample card I did and ordered a set of 5 cards. So off to create I went! This was the result.

She loved them! I also got a few more ladies that ordered when they saw them! Yay for me!

Beate's Weekend Challenge #14


Beate is having her weekend challenge Contest #14 with this sketch!


I made this one, I thought it was pretty cool!
Head on over to her Blog:
Post your card to be entered!

FYI

I know some of you may not enjoy the music that is playing on my page, but think
of it as if you were going to Puerto Rico, Cancun or even
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. This is what you hear when
your out there having fun in the sun, the waves are crashing and your just relaxing having yourself a ice cold beer or a Sour Apple Martini! I love my
caribbean music because not only is it part of my heritage but its my culture, its in my blood and because nmy DH and DS are both musicians. DH has been
playing this music for over 15 years and my DS who is 13 has suddenly peaked his interest in this as well, as for me well I love the Singing aspect of it because
I was born and raised in a Puerto Rican Family who would play music at any family function and for Christmas what American call Caroling we Boricuas call is Aginaldos, Spanish Caroling. We would take all of our families along with the instruments to neighbors
and other families homes at whatever time of night (USUALLY STARTING at 10Pm) lol... and stand in front of the house, playing the music and singing until the Light would
come on and the doors would open, then thats when the party BEGAN. I enjoy singing in my husbands band and have been singing since the Womb, lol...
So with that said, I hope you surf my page and enjoy the music that is playing,
I will change it up a bit as time progresses but for now this is my mood and I
hope you all like what you hear. Who knows you may even be inspired to go out
there and take some SALSA CLASSES, now thats FUN!
Take care

O-R-E-O!!!!!!!

My Answers to the TAG by Kimberly

Ok well lets see here.

7 things no one knows about me:

1. Geesh this is hard.... Ummm I love love love being a student all over again. I am at the top of my class and I just may switch from my Associates in Criminal Justice to my Bachelors in Criminal Justice and Applied Science. Who would have thunk it.. me working my way to have a career working with CADAVERS.

2. My first pregnancy came as a surprise to me when I was 17 years old and as fate would
have it, I miscarried them and they were Twins. Which would have made me the first one
in the family to ever have twins.

3. I won Rookie of the year my Junior year in high school in our Chorus group. First student
ever to come into Barringer High in there junior year and make Rookie of the Year. Yep
music is my passion and first love, now its STAMPING.

4. I got into stamping because of a co-worker who know has me looking like an addict. I cant
get enough of this.

5. I cannot for the life of me remember what my natural hair color is, lol. I have been dying my
hair since I was about 15 and I know its a brown just don't know if its dark or light. I have
changed it so many times, I just stick to a red head now...lol....

6. Ever since I was 7 years old, I have always had a dog to accompany me in my life, and when
I was told that I had to get rid of my Daschund Charlie, when I moved to the apartment
I am in now, I went into a state of depression and against the landlords wishes.... my DH
surprised me with a baby chihuahua/daschund and she was just 4 weeks when we got her.
Her name is lulu and she is the sweetest thing.

7. ok here is the last one.. boy this sure was a brain boggler....lol... ummmm some may think
that I am off my rocker, but, I sure would love to have just one more little baby. I got a
tubal ligation done 8 years ago when I had Jason, simply because I knew that I really did
not want to have another child with his father ( i know it sounds awful but its honest), so
i took care of that with the procedure, Now that I have found a great man who is the best
husband a woman can ask for and a great and awesome step father, I would love to have
his child. Operation you say? Oh no could not fathom the thought of going through that and
not being able to carry. So I live with that in my heart and I am content. I have 3
wonderful children who are a big handful for me right now.....

8. one more thing..... I am terribly in awe of how my first born Amanda has turned into the
most beautiful young lady who will be celebrating her 15th birthday with a big big party..
Hispanics love to throw there baby girls a Quinceanera, Sweet 15. The coming out party
of a little girl going into her Young Adulthood. I love you Amanda, always know that, even
if you dont think Mom is looking out for you.....


Ok all ,,, enough mushy stuff...lol.. there are my 7 oh, 8 things that you didnt know about me.... now..... We are going to tag some others. I will post them up here after going through some pages here...

thank you so much for reading.....

LETS SIT AND CHAT OVER A CUP OF COFFEE


Well these past few weeks have been stressing for me and I found

the time to make a little something last night....


I have here the Javabellas, sitting around in a little cafe
showing off there bling bling..... inside is a little notebook I
got from the Dollar store. I think its just a cute idea, I used the
cuttlebug folder that has the writiting over it ...
(dont know the name of this one.) and some
Black Polka dot Ribbon again that I got from the Dollar Store,
Yo Yo yellow CS from SU, brads and used the round
paper puncher to make the corners. Swavorski Crystal
diamonds on the Javabellas belt and the one on her Necklace.
Over all I think it turned out ok. Hope you all enjoy... off to make
another little notebook holder and to create a beauty of a tin CD holder....

Cuttle Bug folders


I wanted to thank Joan Fleisher of Lanoka, NJ ( I live here and never heard of this town) and Roz Wolfe from Palm Bay, Florida for sending the Cuttle Bug folders in all those yummy colors and designs. I could not contain my self when I got them. My kids looked at me like I was crazy because I was just coming out of my skin with joy.

Attached you will see the card I created for my husbands birthday this past Friday. He loved the Card and even took a Thumb Tack and placed it on the door to Display it. He places any card or drawings that he gets from myself or the kids on our door. I just wanted to share the card with you ladies.

Please look out for more CB Folder cards and invites in the next few days. I was feeling kinda down in the dumps because of medical reasons and doing these cards and getting the folders has perked me right up again.


THANKS LADIES YOUR THE BEST!
