Friendship Paperbag Scrapbook

This is the last post for today. This book is a friend book. I used a paper package from another catalog sell stamp company. I used my Cricut a lot on this book the cartridge I used was Storybook. I love that cartridge!! The cover words I made on the computer and I found the quote in a quote book I have. Again I used my bind it all to bind the paper bags. Hope everyone has a good weekend!!
Thanks for Visiting!!!!

Kentucky Wildcats Paperbag Scrapbook #2

Here is the second UK book I did most of the supplies I did are the same. I used the SU flower punch. To glitter the letters I ran the front side through my glue runner and then rubbed fine white glitter on it. Oh the stickers were part of the UK paper package I purchased and all ribbon is SU also. The white word "tiles" are magnets from Windstream.

Kentucky Wildcats Paperbag Scrapbook

I have been working on some paper bag scrapbooks for a friend the last couple of weeks. She need five made 3 for Christmas presents and 2 for herself. One for each child, she has twins a boy and an girl. I have four of them done and working on the fifth. I thought it would be easier to put each book in a separate post so today there will be three posts for the books she need for gifts and sometime this week I’ll post the boy and the girl books when I get done with the last book and take pictures. This first book is a Kentucky Wildcats book for a girl. I found the UK paper in Lexington at a scrap store when I went to Big Blue Madness. The white word “tiles” are actually magnets that Windstream gave to everyone when they walked in the door. My friend Becky laughed at when my eyes lite up with excitement cause I could use them when scrappin‘. On the cover I used my cricut on chipboard and then Stampin Up! whisper white and stamped swiss dots on the whisper white letters. All stamps and cardstock used are SU. I bound the bags with my bind it all. More posts to come in a bit.

Some Cards for the Season

Here are a few of the cards I have made for the Christmas season and also a card for Thanksgiving. I used Razzleberry in every card. It is a great color and I‘ll have to stock up before it retires in the summer. The Melon Mambo and Razzleberry card and matching treat box is very no-traditional but I like being radical like that. :} The stamp set I used for three of the projects is SU hostess set in the Holiday Mini “Pattern Pines“. I liked this set as soon as I saw it in the mini and love all the stuff I’ve seen on split coast using it. On the Thanksgiving card I used a sizzix green die I have had for years of a maple leaf and then ran them through my Big shot using an textured folder. I hope you enjoy!! Have a good evening!!

Very Large Post

This is a large post cause I’m uploading all the stampin left on my SD card. We are going to Kentucky’s Big Blue Madness tomorrow and my husband is attending a Calaparri coaches clinic on Saturday and he will be using the camera. Well I was afraid he would lose my picture when he had the camera in his possession so I thought better safe then sorry. I hope you enjoy the pics. The tree card was for my hubbies birthday this past Saturday . I used rich razzleberry, dusty durango, and an old in-color true thyme. I used a stamp set from another catalog sell company and the buttons and ink are SU. The other card I used rich razzleberry, pumpkin pie and old olive. I used the medallion stamp on the tag and an SU library clip. The School days pages where for a friends book. I used a retired SU school set. The pattern paper was from a local store and it was double sided. I used the flower pattern side to cut out the apple on my cricut. It matched old olive perfect and I also used so saffron on these pages. The last page is a repeat of a scrap page I posted before but this one I made for my book and the pictures are of my daughter Kayla. She is a senior in High School. Wow how fast time has flew by. I loved her auburn red hair when she was little,it is now strawberry blonde when she does not color it. Again hope you enjoy all the pics.

Thanks for visiting and have a good weekend!!

3x3 Jingle Christmas Set

Good Afternoon everyone!! Hope everyone is having a good Friday. I’m off today and Monday from work so I’m enjoying mine a lot. I have been working on this 3x3 set this week after work . I used the SU Scallop Envelope Sizzix die to make the box. I also used the new ornament punch and stamp set from SU. This is the first project I have made with them but can’t wait to make more. I will have a busy day tomorrow. Both of my girls are going to homecoming. Autumn is a freshman this year so she excited this is her first homecoming. She is actually driving me a little nuts cause she is working so hard to make it “perfect”. My oldest daughter Kayla is a senior so this is her last homecoming. The dress shop she got her dress from totally messed up on her dress and its to late to find another so we are doing the best with what we have. She will still look beautiful but I’m sad that her last homecoming has been stressful and did not turn out like she expected. I will post picture this weekend of the big event.

Supplies I used:

Stamps: Delightful Decorations, Christmas Punch
Ink and Paper: From another catalog sell company

Thanks for visiting and have a good weekend!!!

Cupcake Door Hanger

I am into making boxes to hold goodies lately. I printed this box from the SU demo site then I cut a piece of cardstock and glued into the back of the box. I used a 2 in circle punch and cut at a angle to make the door hanger. I like the way it turned out. I figure I will have to use a light weight treat because anything to heavy might break the back. Hope everyone has a good week.

Thanks for visiting and have a good night!!!

Simple Medallion Cards

I can’t believe that September is almost over. Before we know it Christmas will be here. I have had this Medallion stamp for a bit and have not gotten to play with is until last week. I love it!! The design is so pretty and I believe there is so much you can do with it. On these two cards I used a brayer with light ink and rolled it onto white textured cardstock. I like the distressed layer look of it. I then inked the Medallion stamp in Rose Red and used a close to cocoa marker on the ends. I then finished it off with a pearl and some ribbon from SU. They are very simple card that can be used for any occasion.

Thanks for visiting and have a good evening!!!!

Children Scrap Pages

These pages are going into a book I am making for someone. The book is for twins that are in kindergarten. Most of the pages I have used CTMH and some SU products. I love the big flowers from CTMH!!! I have used up my first set of them and had to order more this month. The all boy pages I used Bo Bunny Stickers and pattern paper. The childhood page I used SU cardstock and ribbon and CTMH pattern paper and stamp set. On the all girl pages I used CTMH paper, cardstock, stickers and buttons. I hope to finish the book this week because I need to finish working on my oldest daughters scrapbooks because she is a senior this year. I would like to have them finished for all the senior stuff going on in May. Hope everyone has a great weekend and thanks for visiting!!!

Christmas Flip Page

Here is a flip page I worked on a few days ago. The top page is a 9 x 9 page protector glued to the back of the 12 x 12 underneath. I found a video tutorial on how to do this on Tresa Black’s Blog. It is a really cool u tube that shows two different ways to do interactive pages the technique I used is towards the end of the video. I used mostly SU products but the 9 x 9 and pattern paper is CTMH.

Thanks for visiting and Have a great evening!!!!!!

Mojo 97 Razzleberry Medallion

It's been a long time since I have done a challenge of any kind. I love the sketches on Mojo Monday and check them out every week . I finally sat down to try this weeks sketch and ended up making four. A little over kill I know but I am going to need some birthday cards soon so I’m stocked up for now. I’ve also have some scrap pages that I plan to post next week. I love the Medallion BG stamp!! It is so versatile and I have visions of some winter cards using it maybe in blue. Have to see what I come up with. I used new in color cardstock and razzleberry lemonade designer paper on all the cards. On the cupcake card I went with a square image instead of a circle. I put glossy accents on the cupcakes and heated it with a heating gun. It bubbles and puffs up to look like icing. I took a close up so you might be able to see it better.

Thanks for visiting and have a good weekend!!

Supplies I used:

Stamps: Medallion BG, Live Your Dreams, Crazy for Cupcakes, For a Friend
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Razzleberry Lemonade DP
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive
SU Ribbon and Buttons, Buttons from Wal-Mart,
Punches: Oval, scallop edge, photo corner, MS butterfly, mega circle, giga scallop circle
