  1. Hi Erika! This is my first time here. I stumbled upon your blog through Amy Tsuruta and 365 Cards. So first off, I'd have to say my favorite project of yours is your card box. Such cute colors!!! My favorite online place to shop currently is House of 3. Love their style and new store! Will definitely give you a shout out on The Cozy Couch.

  2. Hey Erica! I happened upon your blog tonight. What a great blog! How can I choose just one item to tell you I like?? I love them all!! I am a newbie to the paper craft scene and am totally hooked! I totally love to see different uses for Flourishes and loved your card with the flourish, but also adore butterflies!! I have done a little online shopping and have to make a shout out to Stamping Bella!! I just love Bella!!! Thanks for the blog candy!! Awesome blog!! I have tagged you as a favourite and will be back often!!

  3. Hi Erika!Congratulations on your 10,000 hits. It's such an awesome feeling. I really love your card box. Very beautiful. Gosh, I have so many favorite places I shop online. Right now, I've been shopping a lot at Stampin Up! I can't seem to get enough of their Bigz die cuts.

  4. This is my first time visiting, also. I came from Anna's blog and glad I did. I love the quilling you did on your owl card. I haven't seen quilling that really hit me before this. You did a wonderful job! I love the cherries you made with red buttons on your card holder! Great and very creative! Oh, and congrats on 10,000 hits!!!

  5. Congratulations Erika. I love your little cupcake card, too cute. I don't have a fav place to shop online, because I shop several places (ok really way too many places lol). I am a follower of your blog through google reader and I have posted your blog on my blog. Thanks for the chance to win!

  6. Cute cute cute! I’d like to eat it!
    About which of your works I like best… I suppose it’s mini book (post Jan 17). I adore mini books, yours are wonderful: nice colours, lot of interesting ideas to pick up. I'm a newby in "real" scrapbooking (I made a digital ones for a pretty long time and now would like to get some new experience so began to scrap in “reality”) so I have a lot to learn from you.
    As for shopping… I have a problems with it, because here in Russia it's pretty hard to find scrapbooking suppliers, we don't have "real" scrap stores here, only several internet ones, not with very various assortiment in it. So your candy would be very great present for me :) Usually I buy from ebay.com, there are a lot of stores with reasonable prices which ship worldwide.
    OK, keeping my fingers crossed
    My warmest regards
    I’ve linked you here: http://winged-art.blogspot.com/2009/02/candy-from-mrsetaylor.html

  7. O gosh I have to say I love that owl card with the Quilling but that Card box is Pretty special too..But I guess I have to pick your owl card..With the Quilling.

  8. Hi there, I just became acquainted with you and your blog tonight through Bona's Blog Keep on Scrappin'. I must say you are a very talented lady!! I usually don't stay on blogs this long, but you have a differnt style than most, and you're super creative! I had 2 favorites and had a hard time picking my favorite. I love the Cuppa card and the card box. And the official winner out of the two...oh this is too hard!! The Cuppa card, though that box is too cute with the cherries made out of buttons. But anyway, back to the card, I love your use of scraps, and how you pulled it all together to make a beautiful card! My favorite online place to shop would probably be ebay. Thanks and goodnight!!

My favorite was the card you did with the yellow bicycle stamp set I would love to win it! I loved the way you colored and stamped the crow with acetate!!! Happy creating and celebrating!Hugs,Ina

  28. I really like the blue and periwinkle project with the butterflies.The lacing really makes it pop! This would be a great journal cover.
    Favorite place to shop would have to be eBay.

  29. Great blog...this is my first visit and I am impressed. I really liked your flutter by card and your first CPS (Jan 14). I have put notice of your candy on my blog. Congrats on your hits.

  30. I love the CPS Sketch 103. The depth of color and contrasts in texture just draw me to the card. That and I love the butter flies.
    Also Mojo Monday Challenge #73. That zebra is too cute. Love the colors you use and the wooden button just made the card.
    BTW I tend to distrss and smudge the edges of most of my cards too. I think it becomes habit and then things don't look complet without it.
    Right now my favorite place to shop on-line is Hambo Stamps. But that is because I just want to get some of the new stamps released. They are too funny!!

  31. I Erica! Your cards are so beautiful, you are so creative. I like that pig card you made for the 365 cards sunday sketch challenge. It so cute and for you to come up with that idea is fabulous and smart. My favorite place to shop online is scrapbook.com

  34. Wow, I just discovered your blog from the ranger ink link yahoo group. What beautiful work!! I really love the latest card you did for the 2 challenges (CPS 105), the colors are awesome and I love the butterflies and the overall look of it all together. Well I don't do that much online craft supply shopping but I must say I do love QVC as they always have cool stuff that is cutting edge at a good price and are reliable. I just got some cool Tim Holtz grungeboard book kits a few weeks ago.
