Mother’s Day Card

Hello!

 

I made this card and gift card holder on Friday night and totally forgot about posting them.

My mom had to work on Mother’s Day so we celebrated this past Saturday with breakfast and a day of shopping.

 

The little pocket was made using the Mini Treat Bag thinlits die from Stampin Up using Authentique Delightful papers. I added a few elements from MFT Blueprints 1 which I also used on the card.

I found this Stamping Bella image when I was cleaning in my room. It was stamped years and years ago, not sure what her name is anymore. I colored her with my Lyra Polycolor pencils since it wasn’t Copic friendly paper.

Happy National Scrapbook Day!!

Today is every scrapbooker’s favorite holiday – National Scrapbook Day!

 

It has been several years since I could spend all of NSD scrapbooking, but I always try to get at least one page done. Today’s page is for several scrapbook groups I am in, had to make one page count for a lot LOL!

I used old Basic Grey Shine On papers and embellishments, it was a line exclusive to Joann several years ago.  The layout was created using an old Sketch Thursday sketch. I really miss that site! So many great scrappy sites have come and gone over my 12 years of scrapbooking.

May 2nd creation

Hello!

 

Today’s creation is a combo of Penny Black stamps, SEI papers and a shaped card. Since I did a circle card recently, I wanted to do something else.  I pulled out one of my old Nestabilities sets, Labels 8, to create the card base.

 

2016 Card 52 - Penny Black Sweet Thing

 

The sweet little girl is called Sweet Thing and she is a wood mount stamp I picked up at Hobby Lobby a year or two ago.  No idea how long I have had this Happy Day paper by SEI. I still love this bright, fun paper!  I added Star Dust stickles to the girl’s wings and the cupcake.  A fairly quick and easy card!

May 1st creation

Happy May!

 

I am hoping to resume my daily “matchup” card that I dropped the ball on way back in January.

 

Today’s challenge: Papertrey Ink stamps + Sassafrass Lass paper + shaker card

 

2016 Card 51 - Papertrey Ink On My Couch

 

I forgot how hard shaker cards are LOL.  I avoid them even though I took a class in last year making them from a kit (that I still haven’t finished…ha).   I made two mistakes with this one – forgetting to ground my images and not adding enough sequins.   I do like how it turned out but there is definitely room for improvement on the next one. To add a little pizzazz, I paper pieced the lamp shade, chair and pillow. This is still one of my favorite techniques in crafting!
