This is a card that I made to send to my hubby who is overseas. I tried to make it a little more masculine but not so sure that worked. I used the Friends 24/7 set and the Well Scripted set from the occasions mini catalog. I also used crystal effects and dazzling diamonds on the kraft part of the card and a hat pin out of the Pretties Kit. I hope this inspires you!
This is the card I did for this week's mojo monday sketch challenge. I used the French Script stamp set, the Teeny Tiny Wishes, lattice die and the scallp circle punch. The flower is the circle scallop punch. I punched out 5 of them and punched a whole in the center to put a brad through. Once they are attached, just crinkle them up til you are satisfied and put a button in the middle.
This is a card I did using the Vintage Vogue set out of the new Occasions Mini. I think it could be used as a valentine. The card base is Whisper White with a Basic Black Layer. Then I used black embossing powder on Sahara Sand and on Whisper White for the flower. I embossed the saying in white on the Basic Black Layer.
These are 2 post-it note holders I made with the directions from www.chicnscratch.com. The are super easy and make great little gifts. The green one uses the Medallion stamp set and certainly celery paper. The pink one uses a flower and pearl from the Pretties kit and a saying from the Short & Sweet stamp set.
Today I have some quilted bags that I made for gift bags. The original idea came from a Stampin' Up publication a few months ago. It is made with top note dies. There were no instructions so it was mostly trial and error and I think all of them were made a little different...hehe. I am going to try and get a tutorial together to post later. I just need to get the dimensions perfect.
These are cookie boxes I made for my husband's work. 22 in all!!! I put 2 cookies and some candy canes in each one. They loved them. The snowflakes are from the Big Shot Snowflake die and the holly leaves I drew and then traced onto DSP.
I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Today I have a stenciled frame I did for a craft show. This was also inspired by a tutorial given by Kimberly Van Diepen @ www.stampinbythesea.com. She uses stencil paste but I had a hard time finding it so I found that joint compound from your local home store does the same trick. I simply bought a $2 frame and stained it. Then I took the stencil and laid it on the frame and took a knife and covered it with joint compound. I let it dry for a while then sponged it and added a little glitter.
I am married with 2 little ones. A 5 year old boy & a 1 year old girl. My family is very close. I have mom & dad right down the street and they are my best friends. I started scrapbooking when I started forgetting the little things about my son. Then....it became a little bit of an obsession. I found that I loved the idea of creating new things.
