Anniversary Card

This card is made for an aunt and uncle. This paper on the inside came from a kit a few years ago. The cherish came from a calendar set a couple of years ago. I used blush and barn red card stock. The velum was printed on my computer. I used raffia from a craft store. I added just blooms with a green brad to tie in the raffia.

Baby Card

In an attempt to use up scraps and retired paper I made this card for a neighbor who is expecting a little girl. I honestly do not remember the name of the B&T. I used lavender and pansy purple cardstock. I used pansy purple ink. I used just blooms and a brad. The stamp set is gracious greetings (perfect for any occasion).

Circle Birthday

This card was made using center circles pg 117 in the wishes book. I used twilight cardstock, colonial white cardstock, simple pleasures stickease, chocolate ink. I used a flower that I received in a scrapbooking kit for christmas. The brad was made using an extra large brad (craft store) a stickease and some liquid glass.

I decided to do the celebration workshop starting on page 21 of the wishes book. I used bella bulk paper and coordinating cardstocks. I used thank you cards as a theme. This project was fun and enjoyable. I can't wait to use other paper and see what the outcome will be. This will be a future class. It came together beautifully.

Life Delights Circle Card

OK. Judy challanged me to a card layout. The challange was simply use the layout in the wishes book page 67. While trying to decide what paper I wanted to use. I chose my safety net. I don't think anything could look bad using life delights. I do feel that I cheated just a little because of the stickers. It works beautifully and it will make a great card for someone.

Life delights (scraps), chocolate cardstock, sweet leaf cardstock, chocolate ink and life delight stickease.

Thanks for the challange Judy, I always love a challange.

This project is a briefcase/purse and four matching pocket cards. I used that's amore paper pack, chocolate cardstock, tulip cardstock, tulip ink, chocolate ink, chocolate ribbon and several stamp sets. This set if focused on friendship. I thought it would be cute cards to share among that friend who always seems to be there for you. The purse or briefcase can also double as a gift bag.

This is a card I made for my brother in law and his wife. They have an anniversary coming up later this month. I am not sure of how long they have been married because they were married long before I met my husband.

The card is made using bella pattern paper. Purple Pansy cardstock flowers and ink. Petal card stock, creme brule ribbon and colonial white brads. The design was altered just a little from the background blocks design in the originals book page 48.

Birthday Wallet Card

I wanted something unique and diffrent for my son's upcoming birthday. I was online with Judy Applegarth and I had decided to make a wallet. I had taken my son's wallet and started measuring it. Judy directed me to this blog.
Aaron Brown had already found a tuturial on u tube. Wow my prayers were answered. I am so grateful for all of the wonderful consultants out there who share.
I used stardust pattern paper and moonstuck and honey cardstock for this wallet. The stamp set is seasons of the heart (retired). I did use a star punch for the star on front.
My son loves looking at the stars. Well we live in Montana (Big sky country). This idea was easy for me. I will fill his wallet and he will have the coolest card ever. Now I just have to wait until the end of August to give it to him.

Michael's Card

Call me sentimental. My 9 year old son wanted to make cards with me tonight. After a few attempts with sticky notes and scrapbooking scraps, he asked if he could use scraps to make a real card. I opened the Original's book and taught him how to read the dementions and cut him loose. I told him that he could use some of my stamps too. He made this card for me. This makes a mother so proud. I told him never to let anyone tell him that crafting was not for boys. He did a fantastic job.

Life Delights Layout

This was a scrapbook challange from Close To My Heart. The paper is Life Delights. Unfortunally it is retired. I love this paper pack.

The scrapbook layout is in memory of my mother who passed away a week and half ago. I am not quite ready to write any thing personal about her but did want to use her pictures with my favorite paper.

Badlands Outback Paper

This layout was made using Ouback Paper pack. I added autumn terracotta cardstock. This color combination really works well with the natural colors of the landscape. I used a template from the Imagine book page 57.

Learning To Drive

This page was a lot of fun. I used back country pattern paper, outdoor denim and twilight card stock. The brads are from a craft store. They do finish off the page so well. I used a template from the Cherish Book page 40.

Badlands Scrapbook Page

This page was made using a template from the Cherish Book page 64. The paper used was from the paper pack of bella. I used Dementional elements upper and lower case letters. I printed a picture and glued the letters on the back of the picture and then cut them out around the picture. This was a little time consuming but it allowed me to show yet one more picture of this beautiful place.
Badlands national park is located in South Dakota. This used to be the ocean floor billions of years ago. Today it has given us this beautiful national park. There have been many fossils found here. This is also a great way to see how years of erosion effect the earth.
