A Favor for ME Please!!!

Hey Hey all, i just wanted to ask a favor of you...My fabulous DT Annibee has submitted a project to win a fantastic prize...She needs a little helping hand in voting...If you all could cast her a vote she would be so surprised if she won. Isn't this just gorgeous????

Here is the link to cast your vote. It will only take a moment of your time, you do need a facebook account to vote. If you have troubles voting please go to Annibee's blog and the link is there...


Technical Difficulties!

Hey hey... Can you guess what i purchased???? I have to say i love this product, it makes my life so much easier. I did have a little trouble figuring out what size i needed but managed to get ur done. I did press a little too hard as well and it buckled my paper a little but you can't see that from a airplane so i guess it's OK.. Another digi stamp that i just couldn't resist...colored with promarkers and used my new DWAV paper...LOVE IT!!! A much more simple card but i like how it turned out...

Help Please!!!! What paper do you use to color on with your promarkers/copics. I just tried the express that is recommended for copics and i find it blends great but does bleed....Looking for a company either in Canada or USA as shipping costs are nasty from UK...thanks for all your help.

Thanks for dropping by and have a great day!

Challenges I'm entering are:


Hey Ladies....well i took the plunge and purchased my first stack of DWAV and a few other things....well many other things, i'll share in future blogs. Sometimes i wish i didn't bring my hubby as i feel so guilty buying so much stuff. And did i say i just have no more room to put it. I so need someone to organize my space in a bad way, it's looking very very messy and crowded. I had a fantastic time with my granddaughter and we celebrated her 1st birthday...and her thank you cards are stuck in the mail.. But don't worry Canada Post is back in business as of 8:45 pm tonight...yeah....I now can get my stamps out to some special gals that just happen to be on my DT team and I'll get out customers orders asap...everything is packaged and addressed so I'm all ready.

DT Member's, Meet and Greet!



Doreen Agius

Hi I'm Doreen, but some of my friends call me Dora, so I adopted this name for blogland. I'm from Malta, am married and have two lovely boys aged 12 and 15 years. I have been crafting for as long as I can remember but my real passion is cardmaking and colouring with my promarkers. I form part of four Designs Teams and excited even more now that I have been accepted to be part of the new Team at JustWordz.

Tara Keeney

Hi, my name is Tara. I am a 27 years old substitute teacher and private tutor. I live in Nova Scotia, Canada. I started scrapbooking in 2002 when we had a scrapbook day at the summer camp I worked for. We used construction paper, glue sticks and whatever stickers we could get our hands on and, yes I still have that first scrapbook and will treasure it until the acid eats through it, lol. Almost two years ago I saw the Cricut in action on the shopping channel and started searching the internet for information. This is when I discovered blog world! Shortly, after this I purchased my Cricut and since then my mild scrapbooking habit has become a full scale crafting obsession! I have shifted from layouts to mostly cards but hope to get back to my roots soon. My blog is my second home, pop by and visit me

Anne Brown

My name is Anne Brown but I am better known in the crafting community as “Anniebee”. I am living single in the suburbs northeast of Fort Worth, Texas in the same house I grew up in. I have a grown son, a wonderful daughter-in-law and two beautiful grandchildren. I lived in Houston for many years before moving back to the Fort Worth area 16 years ago to help care for my aging parents. I have been creating art in one form or another since I could hold a crayon. I’m a doll maker, jewelry maker, sculptor, painter and paper crafter. I have dabbled in many other genres in the realm of arts and crafts over the years but this is my current list of favorites. I also love music and movies. There just aren’t enough hours in the day for me to pursue all of my interests. I’m very new to the blogging world, having created my blog only 4 months ago. I have learned a lot in this short period of time but my education is ongoing and as I learn, my blog will likely undergo a makeover.

I’m honored and humbled to have been asked by Kimberly to be part of her new design team and I am excited to be working with her and creating beautiful paper art with her awesome stamps. I’m also looking forward to working with the other amazingly talented ladies on the team.

Tammy Schmitt

Stay at home mom of three and 1 West Highland Terrier. I love to paper craft, quilt, altered books, read, and blog. No spare time to really do any of these things, especially with an almost 1 yr old to chase after.

Corry Smryski

My name is Corry Smryski.
I am a happily married (most of the time)-lol- mother of 3 great (most of the time)-lol- children. A 10 year old girl, a 3 yr old boy & a 15 month old boy! I live in Canada (not in an igloo-lol) & love experiencing 4 genuine seasons in 12 months....From Sun to Snow! I love it!
I am a part-time Registered Nurse, full time caregiver and have also been known to hold the title of taxi, referee, chef, cleaning & laundry lady, teacher & principle (or disciplinarian). I first became interested in 'hand made' stuffs in 2006, after seeing my girlfriends homemade baby shower guest book! I was IN LOVE! I then found scrapbooking; first traditional then digital; then moved to making cards in 2008. First SU then CTMH, now digital images & many many many other rubba stamps that meet my fancy! What an amazing world this blog land is. I just celebrated my 2 yrs here. My style varies from cute & girly to roough & tumble to vintage & shabby chic. Give me a reason to try something new and I'M ALL IN!! My favorite saying is "everything happens for a reason" & this JUST WORDZ DT is definitely another reason.

Are these not the most talented ladies you've seen....i am amazed at their talent, it puts me to shame....I'm so thankful they agreed to be a part of my team, since I'm so new. Thank you from the bottom of my heart ladies. It's so nice of you to help me spread the word for JUSTWORDZ stamps...I'm so ready to get the next set in production..
Please pay a visit to all the members. They truly have the most fabulous projects...and you will want to visit again and again...leave them some love too...

Keep posted for our first display of projects using JUSTWORDZ stamps. Unfortunately i have to wait for our postal service to go off strike....bummer eh???

Take care and drop in again...

Something totally new to me!!!

Hey all, thanks for dropping by, here is a card made with something i would never even dream of using.... A rub-on yes i said RUB-ON. I picked up a bunch of craft stuff from a local yard sale and i purchased this container that had two drawers and i thought it would be a great storage unit. And they were only asking 3.00, totally not even interested in the rub-ons inside...Well i flipped through them and this image was in there, and i thought hey, it's cute, I'll give it a this is what i created...and you know what i love never now until you try it eh???? Lesson learned well....

Sentiment was of course JUSTWORDZ everyday sentiments....

By the way how do you all like the stamp set I've been using...any other ideas for upcoming sets, would love to hear your thoughts.....

Will be introducing DT members in the next day or two.....

From ME to YOU!!!! many thanks

Hey All, just a Big Big thank you from me to YOU!!!! I truly appreciate all that answered my call for DT Members....I'm so overwhelmed with the talent that you all possess. I had to ask for help as i just loved too many of you and had to narrow it down:( Makes me so sad that i couldn't choose all of you... I hope i was able to acknowledge all that applied, there were many so i hope i didn't miss anyone. I came by all your blogs and had a feast of crafty goodness. Please don't be disappointed if you were not chosen as every ones work was fantastic. It got down to how often you posted,number of challenges you enter and your style of card making..I wanted a mixed bag of styles...
I ended up picking 4 instead of 3 as i just couldn't decide... As well I'm keeping some names for when i add more to my team as you all have such wonderful projects and cards.

Image colored by promarkers, and it's hard to see my sentiment on top but i used JUSTWORDZ everyday sentiments and blinged it up some with clear glitter pen as well as the flowers.

Thank you so much for stopping by and enjoy your day with smiles.....



I've never had to do something so hard in all my life:0)

Who would have thunk there was sooooo much super talent out there in blogland

I'm so overwhelmed with the response and can't wait to get started

if i can only decide between many. It hurts me to pick only a few

I truly wish i could have you all, if only i would win the lottery....


From the bottom of my heart

It means the world to me!!!!

I'll be contacting all who were chosen by tomorrow to make sure your

still available...i just have to PICK!

AND SOME BAD NEWS.....Canada Post is on couldn't have come

at a worst time. I'll just have to wait to get started....

Take care all, and please stop in again.

Everybody and his dog are doing i had too!!

Hey all, just a very quick post on these super cute dress shirt cards...I've seen many smaller ones that are used on cards but then i came across a tutorial for a full size card., she has so many projects I'll just have to go back and try something else. Thanks Dawn..The only thing i changed is where the white note paper is to write your sentiment, as i found i didn't like the look of white paper peaking out at the back so i changed where i put it as you can see which leaves the back as it should be....and i added a small pocket and did some inking...hope you enjoy and try this for yourself...super easy.

Thanks for coming by and have a great day.

Hardest card i've ever MADE!!!

Hey All!!!! Have you ever had one of those days where anything you did went bad.....i have to say making this card was one of them. This card was made for my brother in-law and i wanted to make it just perfect...Well it started with trying to make a brown's cutout from my cricut and i must have tried it 10 times and finally gave up and just wrote it on by hand..not the look i was aiming for. Then my hubby made up the sentiment and Marlene from

would be proud, i must have printed it out 4 times to get the right size, then i glued the wrong side of the red hook and had to glitter it up to get rid of the stickiness. Then when all was said and done and i glued the front on the card, i glued it to the wrong side....argggggggg how frustrating...Then hubby writes in it and as you can see didn't take much care....WOW now that i cried on your shoulders.... I'm so done with this card, i hope he likes it.

THANK YOU for listening...your truly great friends...

Few Days Left....DT CALL & scrap cards

Oops me bad can't spell for the life of me and grammer has to go....sorry. I'll do better next time.

Hey Gang!!! just a couple cards i made at a local crop till you drop in our city...I only went with scraps and this is what happened...I have to say i scraplifted the black and white design from my friend TARA at, super talented lady. Boy can she use up scraps in the most beautiful way. So these were made with no images just scraps and the use of JUSTWORDZ everyday sentiment stamps.

Other news, when i went to Photo Metro crop till you drop last night the instructor there...KIM was so kind as to mention my new stamp line and of course i brought a few for show and tell IF anyone asked...and GUESS what i sold everything i had with exciting....i was so worried to do that as Photo Metro is trying to make money too with people buying their supplies on these nights, so it was with great appreciation to Kim for letting me show and sell them...Super super kind.



Please use email provided on my contact page, it just makes it easier for me

to go through them. No need to re-apply if you were one of the ones
