I colored up my Pretty Daffodils with my trusty Copics and Fussy cut the first set of daffodils out and cut the second set out with the help of my Classic Ovals and Lacy Ovals Nesites sets.

Julia in the Field by Kim O'Connell

Kim O'Connell checkin' in!  

There's a new challenge for you to tackle on the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge blog! The theme for the next two weeks is "April showers bring may flowers"  So, ink up some springtime image and show us what you've got!

I played along with Stampavie's "Julia in the Field by Sarah Kay.

Once I colored this image, didn't want to add the patterned paper that I had chosen. I thought she looked so pretty as is that I didn't want to distract from the image in any way. I stamped the image in Momento tuxedo black ink onto X-Press It blending card and colored her with copics. I used a white gel pen to add the polka dots to her hair bow. I ran a white panel through the Big Shot with a Cuttlebug polka dot embossing folder and then rounded the corners of the card base.

For those of you interested in the copic colors I used, here they are:

skin - E11, E21, E00, E000, R20, R30
hair - E37, E35,E53,E51
clothing - R85, R83, R81, BG13, BG11, BG10
flowers - RV13, RV11, RV10, Y15, Y13, Y11, V17, V15, V12, YG17, YG13, YG11
basket - E37. E35, E33

Ready to play along? Head on over the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge blog to link up your creation.
There are only 2 rules to follow to be eligible for the $20 gift certificate to the store:

1) Use a stamped image carried in the 7 KIDS STORE, or, if your project does not have a stamped image, all primary elements (dies, paper, punches) must be carried in the store.

Docrafts Blog Hop WINNER!!!

It's been one of those weeks! I have been swamped with getting all the clearance orders out. Next time I clearance, I think I'll pace myself a little better. But, I was in a Catch 22. I have all this great new stuff coming in and nowhere to put it. Then, I had all these products that are just not current, so they had to go. I will also be clearancing more items next week, including older Cuttlebug folders. I want to be the store that has everything from a particular line or product AND has all the new stuff, but I'm finding that isn't what customers want. Obviously, we all want the NEW stuff!!! So, as a general rule, unless something is just a timeless product and good seller, or a general tool, I will probably not stock older products even if the manufacturer is still producing them. However, if you ever need a product that isn't in the store and is still being made, I can probably ordered it for you, so never hesitate to ask me about a product you are looking for!!!

So, keep your eye's peeled for more clearance!!!

And, now for the winner of the Docrafts Blog Hop who will receive the Vintage Hot Air Balloon Build-A-Scene die cut set...

Congrats! Please contact me at 7kidscollegefund@cox.net to claim your prize!!!

April Showers Bring May Flowers


It's hard to believe it is already Friday! I am so excited; today and tomorrow I am spending time with my crafting friends. We are going to the scrapbook convention then to our favorite shopping spot. Can't wait to buy some new goodies.

Today I would like to share a card today featuring a Sarah Kay Image - Pink Joy. However, I did not color her pink. I used a lot of yellow which is not my color of choice. I stamped the background with Magnolia's Barbed Wire Stamp.  I used some dies, netting, ribbon and bling to complete my design.

A closer look at this sweet image:

You can purchase the products below over at 7 Kids College Fund Store:
6x6 Graphic 45 - A Secret Garden
Sarah Kay Stamp - Pink Joy
Magnolia Stamp - Barbed Wire Background

I  hope I have inspired you today to create a new project. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Preordering Primer

I am receiving e-mails daily from customers asking about why they haven't received a ship notice on their order for the WRMK envelope and punch board. Rather than address each one individually, I thought this would be a good time to discuss how the preordering process works at 7 KIDS. If you do not preorder or you are already familiar with how preorders work, no need to read on!

If you are preordering from 7 KIDS, the first place to go for information before you preorder is the help section on preordering. CLICK HERE to see that page. This should answer almost any question you have about preordering.

For the case of the WRMK board the AVAILABILITY currently reads: "PREORDER product expected to ship from WRMK in late April." This means that WRMK has informed me that they expect to receive the product and begin shipping at the end of April. I should have the product in early May to ship to my customers if they do receive the product as currently anticipated.

Please note that this date is SUBJECT TO CHANGE. As with any product being manufactured in China, there are tons of reasons products can be delayed including delays at the plant itself, delays in transit on the ships bringing the product over and delays getting the products through the customs process. So, even though WRMK has told me they expect the boards to arrive at the end of the month, that does not always happen.

As stated in the help section on preorders, I keep the AVAILABILITY in each preorder listing updated with the lastest information I have. If I find out that the product will be delayed, I update the availability. If I find out that the product is on the way to me and I have an arrival date at my store, I will update.

Unfortunately, I cannot contact each customer individually about these status changes, so I ask that everyone with a pending preorder check the availability for any new information about the product.

For easier access to current preorder estimated ship dates, I have added a box on the front page on the right hand side that says: PREORDERING? Click here for information on our preordering policy and current ESTIMATED ship times. I am keeping all the preorder products updated here as well, so if you have more than one preorder product you are waiting for, you need only visit one place for all the information.

Feel free to contact me if you do have a question that is not answered on the HELP page regarding preorders.

WRMK Envelope Boards: *UPDATED* WRMK is now estimating receiving the boards in their warehouse in mid-May. Please remember that delays on products being newly manufactured are the norm. As soon as I receive updated information, I will post it in the availability section of the store, as well as here.
Cutterpillar: late May/early JuneCottageCutz: mid May
2 Cute Ink from Whimsy: early May
D-Lites: mid to late May
Gorjuss Girls: *UPDATED* These items are delayed. Now expected to ship in early June.
La-La Land: Any stamps and dies still on preorder are expected to arrive at my distributor's warehouse on May 6. I should have them about a week later.
Prima Dolls: Remaining Prima Doll design expected to ship mid-May
Stamping Bella: early May
Wink of Stella: preorders shipping by May 3

Check out the new Nellie Snellen Picture embossing folders. These things are cool! What a simple way to create a detailed and spectacular card!
