Garden Card Magazine Holder

I am working on this set for my mom as part of a gift for her birthday. She is very hard to buy for. She is not into any hobby or colleting anything and she is kind of picky about her cloths. So my sister and I took her out to eat and this set and some mums for the front of her house is what I plan to give her. She is 73 now and has everything so I want to give her something I have made and she will have some cards on hand when she needs them. I have four made and plan to make copies of them until the holder is full. I will most likely have it all done by Friday. I used the CTMH stamp set of the Month Treasure Life. I like the garden look of this set. I also got a SU order of new paper and sets today and can’t wait to play with them.

Supplies I used:

Sets: CTMH Treasure Life, Say it in Style
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze, So Saffron, River Rock
Cardstock: Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Old Olive, Very Vanilla
Pattern Paper: Kurio
Score-Pal, Scallop Circle, Scallop Edge and Circle Punches, SU ribbon

Thanks for visiting and have a good night!!!

Christmas Pages

These pages are for a scrapbook I have been working on for my mother-in-law. It has been a very slow process because of work and going through pictures. I used some new “toys” I got this week from CTMH. The trees are from a set call Evergreen. It is a really neat set with several different sizes and designs of trees. I also used the new Christmas creative basic paper. I used riding hood red ink instead of real red because my real red pad is messed up for some reason. It will not dry and just smears very bad so I am getting a new one on my next order.

Sets: CTMH Evergreen, SU Snowflakes, TAC Fancy Swirls
Paper: CTMH pattern paper, Real Red, Mellow Moss, Very Vanilla
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Mellow Moss
Circle Punches and Circle coluzzle, Red organdy ribbon from SU

Thanks for Visiting!! Have a great weekend!!

I finally got to play around yesterday and make some cards. I love the sheer green ribbon on the last card . I purchased it Friday from a local scrapbook store. It is so soft and scarf like..very easy to work with. I have used it all so I will be doing back this week to get more. The Halloween card was a time consuming project but I like how it turned out. I think it would be cute to put a wallet size picture of kids in costume in it. I would like to find the time to make a few Christmas ones with my girls and our new puppy in it to send to family that live far away. I just have to find the time. My sister and I order the Hero Arts cupcake set last week and this is the first card I made from it. I really like the bella paper. It is so pretty. Well have to go now hope to have some projects this weekend to post. Thanks for Visiting and Have a Great Week!!

Busy Busy Busy

Hello everyone!! I wanted to let you all know that I have been very busy so I have not gotten to post lately. I am scrapbooking with my after school kids. I have eight in my group and we are doing two to three pages a week so I have been in my scrap room but have not gotten to work on anything else but creating and cutting pages for eight first to third graders. It's a lot of fun and also a lot of work. Hopefully I will get to work on a couple of projects this weekend. Hope everyone has a great week!! Thanks for visiting!!

4 1/4 by 5 1/2 Card Magazine Holder

I love the little 3x3 card magazine holder from Becky Roberts. I have made more but have yet to make the cards to go into them so I have not posted them. But I was really wanting to make one that could hold larger cards. So I sat down yesterday and played around until I figured out the measurements. This is kind of a big deal for me because I never make 3-D projects and to figure this out on my own is well…amazing. These are super easy to make I plan to make a few as gifts for Christmas. I took a picture of the pattern and I hope it is easy to read.

Supplies I used:

Set: Season of Joy
Cardstock: Wild Wasabi Texture, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, American Craft Pattern Paper
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Riding Hood Red
5-Petal Punch, Scallop Square Punch, Scallop Edge Punch, Buttons from Wal-mart, Choc. Chip Satin Ribbon, Cuttlebug ornament embossing folder

Thanks for visiting and have a good day!!!
