Another Birthday Card

Good morning peeps, today I have another birthday card for you this one was for my dear friend Pat who celebrated her birthday is also my design team card for this week over at I Brake For Stamps and I also need to admit that this card was inspired by Leslie Miller at Running With Scissors.

Okay now for my card details I used a stamp called Pansies-Jumbo from IBFS along with Half Sheet 129B Remember When......colored my image with Copics, fussy cut my image out layered the sentiment on a piece of mauve colored card stock tucked in between the for the background isn't that a beautiful embossing folder? Leslie is also an enabler when I saw this on her site I had to have it....It is called Aviary by Anna Griffin and is a Cuttlebug folder.

Okay guess that does it for me this week having Band-Width problems seems that I over used my band-width when I was making my last scrapbook those video's really eat it up so have to be extra cautious until the 8th of Feb. will know better the next time.

A Book of Memories

Hello peeps I have a scrapbook to share with you today....this is one of Laura Denisons designs books and I have had the tutorial for some time so this week I decided to put it together.....still a work in progress but have gotten all done but the second side of it.

This is going to be photo heavy and a real shabby chic design lots of distressing paper tearing and adding bits and pieces here and there.

This is a very large book and this is the front and spine I used  Bo Bunny's Somewhere in Time hinges where cut out with a Spellbinder die out of Kraft-tex. 

this is the section that closes up this album......when it is open it has to section where you add your pages which are made up of card stock,  paper bags, envelopes, and tag pockets.

this is a few when open

here we have tag pockets which were rather cool the way Laura did them and they are added to the back cover.

The rest are just one side of each page couldn't get really great pictures of them.

                            Hope you like my grungy project hope to get the rest done this week.

Warhol Technique

Good morning friends hope you had a very very Merry Christmas, I know I did but am glad it is over now on to the New Year.
Before I post my card today would like to share a few of the projects I did for my family for Christmas....
First we have Olivia wrapped up in the blanket I made for her cuddling with her Paw Paw.

Next is my daughter in this Cowl Hoodie and wrist warmers done in the Crocodile stitch...also made one of these for Hannah but some how didn't get a picture.

Last is Brittany in her new hat I knitted needs to be washed and shaped but that one was done all most under the now you can see where I have been lately so sorry for being MIA.
Okay with all that said on to my design team card for I Brake For Stamps this week.....I have used the More Fashionista Half Sheet four of the images on this Warhol inspired card.

went a little retro with my colors and stamped each different model on different colored card stock after stamping I used a spellbinder die to cut each one out....mounted the 3 images on black card stock and then orange with a yellowish card......very simple inked my sentiment with spiced marmalade added some twine and done....little different style for me but hope you have enjoyed it.

that will do it for me this week now I am off to try and clean up the mess that bomb made in my craft room over the last month....have a great week and a Happy New Years.
and here is my code again for IBFS if you have any money left and want to go shopping.

Gift Box

Hello my friends running late today with my project going to be a quick post as I still have some knitting and crocheting to finish before Thurs.

I needed a gift box for a phone charm I made for my daughter so went to You Tube followed a video from Dawn Griffith for Gift Box Punch Board  and oh how easy she made it. Thanks Dawn!!!!

Okay now for the details on the box started out with an 8 X 8 piece of blue card stock formed my stamped Snowflakes from the Christmas Plate over at I Brake For Stamps....and embossed the images all over the paper before folding it into a box.

Next for the tag I punched it out using the ornament punch from Stampin-up again stamped the Snowflake on tag and embossed added a little silver to top and added some cord....tied some pretty blue ribbon with a bow around the whole thing.
