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)
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.
I have a lil’ sis of sorts and I am so thankful for her in my life. She reminds me of, well, me. She placed this around my neck recently and remarked “here, this is for you” with a big smile. PRECIOUS. Our friends we have in life are precious. xoxox
This was my first attempt at making a (toilet paper roll) mini album. I really like the personal touch put into the album because it has a bracelet of my mom’s, an old family clip earring and a vintage shoe clip added to the album. You can see the rough design elements with the hand drawn lines for the journal spots. It was meant to be a keeper so I had my friend Amy (THANK YOU AMY!), make the adorable pouch to keep it in. Result… My mom loved it! It’s displayed in her living room :0) I used DCWV paper stack and distressed the edges with acrylic paint (gasp) before getting any distress inks. Then I completed it by fashioning the album with some scrap fibers.
