Some Scrappin and Cards

I done some scrap pages and cards the past couple of weeks that I wanted to upload. I made these scrap pages to get ready for Easter pictures of my girls. I’m so looking forward to Easter. I love spring and I am so tired of cold weather!!! I also love making basket for my girls and hubby. My oldest daughter is into paper crafting to so I am making her a basket full of paper, ink and etc. My other daughter is into sports and music so I plan to get her some ipod gift cards and sporty stuff like a Nike pack and cool water bottles she can use at practice. Autumn is into tennis now to keep in shape for basketball. My hubby has a sweet tooth so I get him his favorite candy.

I made the baby card to go with a gift for a young couple who are having their first baby next month. I made two to pick from. One using corduroy buttons and another using ribbon. The last card is for a friend who had surgery today.

Hope everyone has a great week and Thanks so much for visiting!!!

Thoughts and Prayers

My Hubby is out with some friends target shooting this morning so I used the time to get some cards made. I made a card for my Aunt Faye in Georgia, she is started cancer treatments this week. I also made a thank you card for a friend who sent me flowers. The cards where pretty quick to make mostly because I did the embossed image the other night so all I had to so is create and put the cards together. I use the new Parisian Breeze specialty designer paper on both cards and wow I really like the texture and thickness of the paper. I am getting Rockability on my next order. I like the stamping resist method it is pretty easy and I like the soft color around the image.

Supplies I used:
Sets: Thoughts and Prayer, Noteworthy
Ink: So Saffron, Baja Breeze, versa mark
Paper: Parisian Breeze Specialty, Baja Breeze, Pink Pirouette, Boho Backgrounds
Buttons Wal-Mart & SU, Ribbon SU, White Emboss Powder

Branching Out

Got to play around last night with some of my new stuff. I love this branching out set. The tree is very versatile and love the little add-ons like the rain boots. I embossed Baja Blue with the new Sizzix embossing templates that SU sell. Then sponged the edge with ranger paint dauber. I also played with the thoughts and prayers set but did not finish the card yet. I am trying out embossing resist ( think that is what it is call ). It is where you heat emboss the image and then sponge ink over it. Don’t know it I like how it is turning out yet, guess I’ll just have to wait and see the finish card and then make up my mind.

Supplies I used:
Set: Branching Out
Ink: Choc. Chip, Old Olive, Mellow Moss
Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Ruby Red, Naturals Ivory
Hazelnut Ranger paint dauber, Old Olive ribbon, Top Notes, sponge dauber

Thanks for visiting and have a good evening!!!

Been Awhile!!

I have been MIA lately and for all of you who check my blog regularly for updates thanks so much. Two weeks ago we lost my Aunt Ann. I wrote about her in my last post. She was in ICU and we hoped she would recover but she got an infection in her lungs that she just could not fight. She was my moms younger sister and best friend. I spent my whole life, before I was married, living only a mile away from her and my uncle. We rode to church together, vacationed and spend holidays together. Ann was like a another mom to me and my sister and she was one of the most loving and sweetest ladies you could meet and we will all miss her so much. Please remember my mom and uncle in your prayers. My uncle is doing as well as can be expected but my mom is having a really hard time with it.

I have not felt very crafty lately but wanted to post these cards I made a couple of weeks ago. We made them in my last card class. The first card I try “thumping” for the first time and really like the results. I used Color Challenge (CC203) on Splitcoast.

Stuff I used:
Sets: Upsy Daisy
Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Garden Green, Pacific Point, Baja Breeze DP
Ink: Baja Breeze
Marker: Garden Green
Tempting Turquoise Ribbon, Ribbon Slide, CB Folder

On the last two cards I used the Crazy for Cupcakes set and did not write down what I used but all products used where SU. I received my order of some new stuff this past week from SU. I got the "Branching Out" and "Thoughts and Prayer" sets along with other goodies. I hope to make some cards tomorrow with them. I need to make some cards for my next class in two weeks. I also need to make thank you cards for a friend who sent me a flower arrangement and one for my sister-in-law for bringing me a spring wreath for my door. I hope to post some cards before the week is out.

Thanks so much for visiting and have a good night!!!
