G45 Birthday Card

So, my nephew’s birthday just passed and I made this card for him since he can appreciate strange and curios things. I used Graphic 45’s “Old Curiosity Shoppe” paper collection and sticker sheets to create with. The key tied with twine is a Tim Holtz piece and I used Vintage Photo on all the edges. The Stamp is “Mice Party” by Clear Art Stamps and the die is a Spellbinders Nestability one I like to use with more simple and masculine themes.

Scrapping Everyday Miracles – February Main Challenge #25- Home

COLLEEN’S POST

 

So here is my project for the SEM February Challenge which makes me ask, ya, where do I feel most at home (aside from home)?

It was simple for me to answer this – where I grew up, where the phone number is still the same and there are still some citrus trees near the ranch despite all the development… My journal tag reads: “Home to me is where I grew up in the farming and citrus town of Santa Paula, CA. The old style Ranch house was built by my great, great, great grandfather. My mom decorates the dining room table for the holidays with a mix of family heirlooms, curious finds and more. It’s always a treat to visit, especially when he house is festive and reflective our heritage of hardworking Americans enjoying life’s simple pleasures.”

Paper collection – Prima’s Meadow Lark (thanks Kathy)

Clay flowers – Kathy’s Stash from her new molds she’s been experimenting with.

Photo – a little hard to see the whole picture, so I’m adding full pics

Baby Girl Lunch Sack Mini Album #2

This lush mini album has pearl finished papers from DCWV Luxury Stack, tags from Best Creations ‘Sweet Baby’ collection, tons of embellishments from K& Co., many stylish buttons from Dress It Up Button Co., cut outs from the Silhouette Cameo, I am Roses flowers, collectible buttons, trim from Michaels, my personal stash, Recollections layered flowers, and more! I wasn’t sure about the choice in the paper until I got going with the album then it all fell together in such a classy, rich way. I love the fun result. It’s very girlie and soft. The pictures actually do the album justice! Although there is nothing like holding a finished project in your hands. I hope you enjoy and feel free to leave a comment!

Daily Junque B-day Card by Pink Paislee

This fun, bright and masculine card was a joint effort with my little crafting buddy Arielle who is six. We decided to make our friend Joel a birthday card that would be a “keeper” and we both were giddy with the result. From the banner to the fun stamping, “raised dotted” cardstock from Bazzil Basics and coordinating color scheme, this Daily Junque paper stack from Pink Paislee is so versatile and very cheery! We began with choosing the color of card stock then moved on to paper selection and pulled out coordinating stamps and trim as we went along. The shape that showcases “Happy Birthday” is from Spellbinders and was cut on Papertrey Ink. “Kraft cardstock” and the small banner stamp we used was from Michael’s $1 bin! The numbers that look old fashion are from the paper collection and add a personalized touch to the card. We cut and distressed them before adding them to the card with foam tape. I hope future cards we make together are just as cute. P.S. Joel, the birthday loved his card. :0)

Mother’s Day Card

A quick share here… I made this Mother’s Day card with grey cardstock, hydrangea stamp (only using the blossom portion) for the back ground, sheer pink ribbon, Luxury Stack paper by DCWV (circle shaped piece behind sticker sentiment), Fimo clay tiny pink flowers and sheer grey ribbon at the top. The sentiment sticker is from Sticko and was a bit transparent so I used white cardstock to adhere it to then distressed the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink in Pumice Stone. Easy Peezey. Love pastel colors.

Birthday Card for mom

A card for mom using Prima Reflections paper collection. I added a piece of a paper doily, layered some Recollections paper flowers and secured them with Recollections heart shaped pearl brads, embellished my very first stick pin and embellished the flowers with flat back pearls from recollections. The Lace thickers (thick sticker letters) are also from Recollections. Wow, OK, thank you Recollections, I guess I hadn’t realized so many of my staple supplies are from them.
