BLOGAVERSARY CELEBRATION!!

Hello all my crafty friends! Today kicks off a huge BLOGAVERSARY event here on my blog--March 26th is my official one year!!


Wow--what a year can bring! When I started this blog I really did not have any expectations other than to share some of my creations with whoever I was lucky enough to have stop by. I figured if I got 5,000 blog hits in a year that that would be wonderful & here I am getting ready to hit 137,000 blog hits--whoaaaa nellie, lol! I never, never thought I'd meet so many kind, supportive and wonderful friends from around this world who all take a moment most days to stop by my blog to see what I've done :o)



Nor did I think I'd take my crafting to the next level by getting published, working on DT's and teaching! Being a stay-at-home mom for 13 years I had kinda let my crafty side and art dreams go by the wayside, never really pursuing anything that I really wanted to do. But isn't that the case for most of us moms? Taking care of kids, hubby's, homes & animals--but not taking care of ourselves. So starting my blog last March was unknown territory for me for sure, but I'm so, so happy that I did it! I have finally taken on my own dreams and found that you can really have it all :o)

I love and appreciate each and everyone of you--I call you all my friends & my biggest supporters! So I thank you for being a friend to me!!

And to thank you I'm having 3--yes 3 BLOWOUT BLOG CANDIES to CELEBRATE with you!!

Today is BLOG CANDY #1, Friday will be #2 and Sunday will be #3---you will not want to miss any of them cuz' they each have lots (LOTS) of my favorite things in them including stamps, embellies, dp, markers & other goodies!!


But first I want to show you a quick card I made with some of the new Whiff of Joy stamps! Since I'm celebrating my blog's 1 year birthday I made a birthday card to share with all of YOU!

{Recipe: Whiff of Joy accessory stamps, PTI sentiment from Anniversary Gift set, colored w/ Copics, Black Spica pen, Ice Stickles, PTI dp & cs, Offray sheer ribbon, Nestabilities}

I love these colors together & this kitty is too cute for words!! If you're interested in buying any of the new Whiff of Joy Guardian Angels or Accessory stamps here in the states, 7 Kids College Fund will have them for pre-order this week!
***************************************************************

BLOG CANDY #1

So what does Blog Candy #1 contain:

-3 Magnolia stamps (Tilda w/ Tulips, Tilda in heart overalls & Easter sentiment) donated by the most lovely Diana Crick of Magnolia-licious
-2 Studio G stamp sets (Spring Sentiments) donated by my friend Marti of Pez-a-doodle Design
-1 pack of the entire collection of Imaginisce's Spring dp (12x12)
-1 bag of white Glitter Dots & 1 bag of Glitter Heart embellishments donated by my friend Susana of Susana's Custom Art & Card Design
-1 Bag of Assorted Primas
-2 Bottles of Stickles and small sample of Diamond Glaze
-2
Alterable Items (matchbook and stack of coasters)
-1 roll of white satin ribbon and 1 Stampin Up inkpad

So whaddya gotta do to enter you ask, hee hee! Well you know how I love to be nosy & ask questions--soooooo.....You need to answer this question in your post-

"Is there something you've seen me do on my blog this past year that you would like to see in a tutorial?"

If you'd like to spread the word about my blog candy, well I'd love that too :o) Just make sure you do not leave a comment anonymously--please leave a name & email if you don't have a blog!

You have until Saturday at midnite (EST) to enter for this candy and the winner (randomly picked) will be announced for this candy #1 on Sunday's blog post!! One entry per person per candy please!! (so you can enter for each candy but only 1 time, okay)

So make sure and stop by all week for more chances to win some calorie-free candy! And thanks for stopping by!

hugz,

Suzanne

  11. Congrats Suzanne on your blogaversary and for getting to expand your horizons with all this crafting stuff. You are truly talented. I think I've been visiting for the last 4 or 5 months, ever since I got into the blogging world myself.

    I can't think of a tutorial that I'd like you to do but I love the ones on Copics that you've done. While I don't own any yet, when I do, you can bet that I'll be re-watching your tutorials on those.

    Thanks for the cance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Congrats Suzanne! I can't think of any other tutorials for you to do, because you already covered the copics and flowersoft ~ Thank you very much!! I really enjoy your blog and have loved getting to know you better. Happy 1 year anniversary!

  13. Congrats on your blogaversary, Suzanne!!

    I love to see your creations each and every day. You put together some of the neatest cards/gifties!

    You're already done my wish for tutorials - the copics! I can't wait to have more time so I can practice with them :)

  14. Great blog candy!! What I need to work on after reading your tutorials is getting better at skin tones with the Copic markers. :)

    Thanks!!

  15. Congratulations on your blogaversary!! That is an impressive accomplishment! I'm dying to use more flower soft, so I would love some tips on how you use it! Also, a tutorial on hair color with copics to explain which colors you use to make the different hair colors! Thanks again!

    ReplyDelete
  16. LOVE the kitty form WOJ!
    My request is HOW do you select colors? All of your cards are so coordinated with the paper and stamped/colored images. What is your process? Do you design the card first with paper, layers, etc. then color based on that. Do the image first then design around it? Etc.?????
    I really, really, REALLY struggle with this part.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Well I have just found your blog today, so I don't know, I guess I just need you to tell me everything! LOL

    Congratulations on your success and I look forward to following your blog journey.

  18. Congratulations on the one year! My gosh, how you've grown in a year! Great birthday card. Love the kitty and those presents just look too tempting! You always have the greatest blog candy!

    As far as what I'd like to see in a tutorial, I'd love to see how you made the frame for that gorgeous Tilda by the Sea card. It's still my favorite card and I love all the different elements you did with it. Love, adore it!

    Hugs to you,

    Susan

  19. Happy Blogaversary. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us all. I love looking each day at your creations. I would love to see a tutorial on your whole card process. From deciding what image to use to the last bit of bling and your thoughts while you make your card. Possibly use an upcoming sketch challenge & take us through the steps. Thanks again & Congrats!!!

  20. I'm new to your blog, but Congrats on your blogiversary and so many hits! Your cards are simply divine!

    I love how you color, but you've already made some tutorials on those...I've been checking them out!

  21. WOW, what a year!! Congrats on all the hits and the blogavesary. I'm always blown away with any of your 3D projects. I'm more of a card girl.
    I love what you did with the towel!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love reading your blog. I think you were one of the very first to reach out to me when I was starting. While I have started blogging, my progress is slow. I love to see your creativity in your cards and projects. I have been reading some of your other comments and I have to say I agree with most of them. I would like to see you tie the perfect bow, color the perfect image, stamp perfectly on a towel. I guess I would just love you to share your creativity with me and perhaps I can pick it up through osmosis. Keep up the fantastic work; congrats on your anniversary and let's hear it for a million hits.
    Oh and pick me for the candy...lol

  27. Hey Suzanne Stopping by to wish you the Best and Congrats on such a milestone. As you know I found you by accident while blog hopping awhile back and your Copic tutorials then to me were amazing. I downloaded and bought all the pens you used the next day - LOL and I am still doing that with your newest video tutorial upgrades. Hmmmmm me I'd love for you to do a tutorial on how versatile Liquid Applique can be and tying the perfect bow :o)

    Wow, how generous you are, with the candy and the information! I am just discovering your blog, so I don't know if you've already done this (haven't seen it specifically, though)...I'd like to see a tutorial on fading to white. Whenever I try to use my blender to whiten, it looks too harsh of an edge. Hope you can help! Thanks!

  29. Hi Suzanne
    Happy 1 Year blog Anniversary!!

  43. What a wonderful blog candy package. I have a little "candy jar" on my sidebar. I will add your blog candy to my jar.

    You have already done the tutorial I was thinking of, which is using Flower Soft. But here are a couple other ideas.
    1. Boxes/3-D items.
    2. Special projects using the Scor-Pal.
    3. Where does your inspiration come from? Where do you start? What is the process?

    You have a great blog. Congrats on your first anniversary.

  44. Love your copic tutorials, I was
    wondering if you could do one on
    landscape type items, I do a lot of
    Stampscapes stamps and this whole
    copic thing is new to me. Your tutorials are marvoulous. So easy
    to grasp, for me that is saying a lot. Thanks for the opportunity

  45. Love your work Suzanne...I don't think I could pick a tutorial topic though...don't use them much myself...just take an idea and run with it usually! It's more the inspiration I seek when blog hopping! Yours is always full!
    Congrats on your blog success!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Happy Anniversary!!! I adore reading your blog and your cards are lovely. As for tutorial...you have one thing that I see on your cards occasionally. I know I'm a total dork here, but could you do a nice tutorial on those lovely stick pins you sometimes tuck into your bows? I have the bits but mine just don't turn out!

  47. Hi Suzanne, Greetings from Toronto! Thanks so much for the chance at blog candy! I am pretty good at using my Copics, but I'm not really artistic enough to know WHERE the shading should go. I would love a basic tutorial on knowing where to shade and where to highlight!
    Thanks,
    Robin

  48. Hi Suzanne,
    Happy Blogaversary! :) Thanks so much for offering this wonderful blog candy. As for something I'd like to see you demo . . . I actually have 2 things :) First, I'd love to learn how you tie your bows. I love ribbon and bows and put it on most of my cards, but I feel that I'm not very good at tying bows. Second, you made a card a while back with a dragon from H&M stamps (sort of a Puff the Magic Dragon type card) and you did a sort of banner on the card. I'd love to learn how you did that (I hope that makes sense). Thanks again :)
    Hugs, Christine

  49. Way to go lady. You are always one step ahead of the rest of us. I am going to need to know what to do with the Smooch when it arrives. Can't wait to show you what I did with my Copics today thanks to YOU. Hugs,

    ReplyDelete
  50. Congratulations on your blog! Wow, that many hits, that's great! Let's see, I would love to see a tutorial on the towel/tea set you just posted the other day. I really loved that. I watched all your Copic videos yesterday, those were great.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Happy Anniversary! I love all your creations and I have learned so much from you over the past year. I would like to see you do a tutorial on the highlighting/ accent creams/products that you use to add that little bit of something special to your cards.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Congrats on your blogaversary! Your blog never fails to inspire and amaze me.

    This is a small thing but I would like to see how you decide where to add the white highlighting. Also would like to see how you colored on the tea towel. I'm greedy!

    Thanks for the chance to win such yummy candy!

  53. Wow, I would have never guessed that you have been only blogging for a year. I have learned so much from your Copic tutorials. I hope there will be more of those.

  61. Congratulations Suzanne!! Your blog is one I visit daily. Your talent is amazing. I've loved the copic tutorials. There are 2 things I would like to see- your technique for using shimmerz and the white gel marker in accenting your images. The 2nd is I would like to know how you color your shrinky dink charms. I've tried 2 different mediums and they come out looking awful!

  69. Congratulations!!!! I love your blog and your works of art! What I would like to see is how you decide to put your cards together. Do you color the image first and then pick the paper, how do you decide to add your embellishments - is it just a random idea that pops into your head? I have a lot of trouble deciding this especially for the Magnolias...I would also love to see a tutorial on how you get use flower soft. Thanks for the opportunity to win some blog candy. I am posting your Blogaverssary on my blog...

  71. I never tire of copic tutorials. How about helping those of us who are just about to invest in copics choose maybe 12 colors for a starter set and then give a few tutorials using those colors. Can you tell I am intimidated with the process of choosing my first colors.
    Thanks for the chance to win some great blog candy.

  72. Happy Blogaversary! What a wonderful blog candy! Thanks for the chance to win. I've been blogging since last November so I'm fairly new.

  75. Hi Suzanne, congratulations on your blogaversary!!!
    I feel so fortunate to have found your blog the other month...so much inspiration! You are such a talented artist and so generous to share your knowledge with us through your videos and tutorials. To think I get to work with you for a little while is so awesome!!! I've already learned fabulous things from you & your blog but I would love to "see" how you colored on fabric...the towels...shading and all! I'd also like to see your thought process for always picking the perfect combo of colors & paper...but I know that can't be made into a tutorial...can it?? :)
    I've linked you up but I will post a pix of your candy on my next post!
    Hope you had a wonderful day, I'm sure these comments brought a smile to your face...you so deserve it all!

  79. Suzanne,
    Congrats! I love your coloring and your work. You always have great things to share with us. Thank you. I think you pretty much cover every topic and did a wonderful job explaining/showing so that we can create along with you. The one thing that boggles me is how "perfect" your bows are tied! If you would do a tutorial on that, it would be in heaven.

  81. Congratulations on you blogaversary! I'm not at all surprised at all the hits you have gotten. I absolutely LOVE your creativity and your friendly and happy disposition! Instead of a tutorial, could you not just come and stamp with me please? LOL!

  82. Congrats on the blogaversary! I cannot get enough tutorials on the Copic markers. I am more than a little obsessed with them and want to make sure that I am using the in the most effective way. I would also love to see how you use different stamps for different occasion cards and with different color schemes. I like to buy stamps that I can use for multiple things. Thank you!

  83. Hi Suzanne! Congrats on 1 year and 137,000 + hits. Hmmm, to answer your question...you've already done an awesome tutorial on the tea bag box (Thank you! I work in a place where all the girls drink tea) and hot chocolate box so i'm not really sure what else there is. I really enjoy looking at your creations so maybe eventually i'll find something =) Good luck with everything and I can't wait for your next creation!!

  86. Wowza's Suzanne! Congratulations on your Blogaversary and your outstanding accomplishments! I noticed that you changed SAHM to WAHM under your "about me" section and you hit the nail on the head with that one. I ALWAYS enjoy your posts and admire how much work you put into your beautiful creations. I was so excited to view each of your copics tutorials. As for suggesting your next tutorial...how's about a tutorial on how you balance being a wife, mom, crafting, taking care of the animals and keeping organized? {LOL} Thought that would make you laugh!
    Congratulations again!
    Jus' Me,

Your talent is truly outstanding, i'll put link on my jubbly list. Have a brilliant day!

  92. "Is there something you've seen me do on my blog this past year that you would like to see in a tutorial?"

    Suzanne - I'd love to see a video on how you stamp onto pattern paper & cut and layer pieces onto your stamp (ex - a pattern skirt cut & layered onto a stamped image of a girl).

    Congratulations on your blog anniversary! I read it daily!

    Thanks for the chance to win some blog candy - looks great!

  93. Congrats Suzanne! I'm proud to be a part of the 137,000 hits! Gee, this is a hard question. I was blurffing one day, and stumbled on your blog, and fell in love with your art and your style. Your descriptions are wonderfully detailed- there's not much that is lacking. One question did pop up though...How do you use the Inkessentials Blending Tool to achieve such smooth distressing? I've only used sponges, so I would like to know how YOU do it!?! Thanks for the chance!

  94. Congratulations on Your Blogaversary!!!
    I love coming to your blog... delicious and wonderful eye candy... the one thing I would like to see other than the wonderful tuts you have already produced is one that details shading a little more extensively, espceially when using grays.
    Thanks... and Best wishes for another successful year!!!

    Congratulations on your 1 year blog anniversary.
    The thing that I would like to learn from you is how you find the time to stamp with a husband, 2 children and 7 furbabies. Your cards are so beautiful. How long does it take for you to make one?What is your process?
    I have a wonderful husband and a sweet dog - rat terrier. Sometimes it hard for me to find the time to make a card.
