Angie's Cr8zy Craft Corner: Coffee Loving Card Maker Blog Hop





Hey there everyone! I just wanted to share a project that I made using the KaDoodlebug Design file : I need Coffee first.





For the card I used my cuttlebug to do the stepped card from a sizzix die cut using a heavy weight white card-stock. For the actual files I used a bronze paper for the bears and also plain card-stock for the remainder of the file. I used stamps from close to my heart for the shading of the coffee cup and coffee carafe.  I hope you like it!#cofeelovingcardmakers #spring2017clh

New Beginings for me!

Good Evening everyone! I am not sure who visits my blog but if you are reading this, you are obviously a visitor.


About a year ago I became a close to my heart consultant and learned so many new techniques and saw so many great projects! At the end of this month I will be stepping down as a consultant as I have taken on a different and awesome opportunity. I have always loved KaDoodle Bug Designs #kadoodlebugdesigns and had always seen these amazing designs/files and projects that were uploaded on their website. About two months ago they had a Design Team call to get more design team members and I applied to be on that team.  In the beginning of this month, I was selected to join the team and am so excited to join this extraordinary team!



Why am I telling you all this? Well for one thing I am going to be changing my blog to be more personal and including alot of the files and projects that I love. My hopes are to have all different projects from Cards ( which are my favorite!!!) to 3D projects!  Alot of them will have KaDoodlebug designs but also from other companies. Hope you enjoy what I share on here.

If there are projects you are interested in seeing please let me know, I am more than happy to take requests!

If you are on visiting my blog and don't know me personally, let me tell you a little bit about me.

I have been paper-crafting for the last 5 years or so and have been obsessed since day 1. I have an amazing husband, Kevin, who puts up with my obsession in fact he was the person who bought me my first cricut and puts up with my constant stops at all of the crafting stores nearby. I have two beautiful daughters who are both 15 years old, and no they are not Twins! I am blessed to be part of a blended family.  

I am a combat Veteran that served in Afghanistan and had 15 years of service overall. I work full time for the Federal Government as an Assistant Human Resources Officer and love my job and the people I work with, they make work worth it. I am not in the military any more because after my deployment I decided to reset my priorities to be for my family. I have been many places over the course of my 15 years and am happy to be able to share in all of my new adventures as a "Civilian" with my friends and family. Paper-Crafting specifically has given me an avenue for de-stressing and relaxing from my full time job as well as the stresses of being a combat Veteran. I highly recommend it for anyone that is struggling with stress or trying to find a hobby.

If you want to see all of the projects that I have created over the past couple years and new ones please go to my FB page and like it:
