Distressed Western

Hey, my last posting for now. I made up this western dad card. I love the sentiment, it is quite sweet. I took this image of the father/son and then sewed it onto this great Polaroid card stock. I think this was from the DCWV paper line. I took this dotty paper and then sewed a strip along the bottom and then added this ribbon fibre around. I like that it is more manly then pretty. I inked around most of the edges to add some distressing. Lastly I adhered it to the card front and added some bling, a flower, and a brad.

B is for

Hey, here is another bright card. I love this little bear with the balloon. I took this image and layered it up with spellbinders dies. Then I took this great doodle bug paper and sewed a orange strip down the card. I love the black accents. I adhered it to the card base and added my home made sentiment from MW Word. I love that the colours works together and the playful font. Lastly I added the pinwheel, bling, and stickles.

Western layers

Hey everyone. Here is another western card. There are a ton of layers here. I started out placing this wordy western paper in behind. Then I used my spellbinders circle die and cut a circle in this horseshoe paper. I added some black cardstock on the top and along the circle (which was also cut to fit the circle) to add some depth. I then added this horse paper along the bottom. I wrapped some gold ribbon around the top and some brown twine along the bottom. I took my western image and cut it up with spellbinders. I then added this wonderful rope sticker and some bling. Lastly I added this gold flower, black flower, and gold brad set to finish it up! Holy!

Layers n layers

Hey everyone. I made this little card up the other day. I really think it is cute. I took this flower paper and then placed it on the card base. I then took this pink/white checkered paper and die cut a heart out of it. I then wrapped a ribbon around and then adhered it to the card base. I added some flowers and this little bear that I cut out. I added some sheer white ribbon on the top and bottom of the card and then added some bling on top of that. I think it is a pretty cute little card.

Edwin's flying

Hey everyone. Edwin is ready to play in this image. I love the colours that works so well with the entire card. For the background mat I sewed (check out this great stitch pattern of flowers) this red/white strip paper to the bandana red paper. I then wrapped a ribbon around the mat and then adhered it to the card base. I used some new spellbinders dies I just got to layer Edwin up after colouring and cutting him out. I used stickles a bit to give his plane some sparkle. Finally I added the sentiment, bling, a brad, and some flowers. I used some shimmer spray on the blue flower just to get some sparkly going on!

Love ewe!

Hey everyone. So I just love this sweet little sheep with a heart. I did some colouring and then die cut her out. I layered her up with spellbinders dies. For the background I love this. I took this heart paper and sewed a couple pink and black papers that I had punched out. I used a Martha Stewart Punch for this. After that I wrapped this American Craft ribbon around and made a really nice bow! Then I used some pop dots to get my sheep onto the card. Lastly I added some flowers, brad, bling, and the sentiment to finish it up. I love this card!

Bingo girl

Hey, I can't get enough of these bingo cards right now. They work so nicely for interest and layering. So I took some this plaid paper and then sewed some blue printed card stock to it. I then sewed the whole mat onto some brown card stock. I like how that makes it stick out a bit and matches her hair colour. I layered the bingo card, but first inked it. I added her cut out and a flower, some bling, and a brad and she was done.

Scrapbook Album Video!

Hey everyone. Here is my first ever scrapbook video. I have been asked to make some videos and I really haven't had much time before now....plus I'm not sure I like my voice! Bare with my first video, I hope to get better! I struggled with good lighting and trying to get my tripod to be user friendly. Obviously I need a flip cam!

I plan to make a few more videos showing my craft area, some storage ideas, projects I'm working on, and some of my finished projects!

One that really pops!

Hey everyone. Thought I would share this card. I just made it and just sold it that quick! It is really one of my favourites. It just pops! I started out with this yellow paper from recollections. I love the honeycomb pattern. I sewed some red squares in behind. I then adhered this first to a blue piece of cardstock and then all of it to the red card base. I took a yellow piece of cardstock and cut it out with MFT ribbon border die. I love this die. I started the sentiment with Simon Says Stamp set. For the little girl, I die cut the image and then some co-ordinating colours to add some interest. I then wrapped some yellow twine around added some stickler and some bling. Lastly I put a nice flower and shiny brad to finish it up. I really love this card, no wonder it lasted 3 hours on ebay lmao.

A funny day

Hey everyone. Well I had a strange day. I went scrapbook shopping for supplies and ended up selling a few things to the owners! Here are some pictures of the items!
I just love this bear. Isn't he cute. I just made this up today and it obviously was cute because she scooped it up! I love the bingo card in behind and the lovely colours!
Isn't this a cute card. I love this CC Designs image. She is so cute. I love the yellow and teal together!
Again I love this cute little girl. I used stickles to add some sparkle to this card and I love the big red flower and blue bow!
Check out this mini I made. I just finished this up and Daryl had to have it! I used some little envelopes I had and matted them up. I added some buttons, gears, and some Tim Holtz metal to add some fun.
This has to be my favorite page. I love the camera die and the post card. The following page has the big gear and the flowers. I stamped this image into this little text area and love how that turned out. I used the film strip from Tim Holtz to add something extra to this page. Love it!
Love the pull out tags and the fibres. I used the paper line "documented" and I just love this paper line. It is great for Vintage or a more Manly look!
A quick look at the pull out tag from the card I managed to sneak in there! Hope you enjoyed the few projects! I'm adding this to my Make it Monday list!

Vintage double fold card

Hey! I made this double fold card and I just love the look. I used some of the rest of my basic grey paper from this older paper line. I love the red's and browns and such. I sewed this strip of paper from this paper line to more strips from the same paper line and then punched the edge with a martha stewart punch. I then wrapped this black and white ribbon around the mat and then adhered it to the card front. I cut out this red flourish using a spellbinders die. Then I layered up this butterfly image. I added some bling, flowers, sentiment, and a brad.
For the inside I used more papers and more spellbinders dies. I love all these dies, they really add a nice look. I did some more sewing and layering. I love the middle page with these new dies. They are so pretty. I added another image of the birds in the trees and another sentiment and this middle area was done!
For the last little page (green page) I just added these little dies from the D-Lites Spellbinders pack to keep the theme going.
I love how this all came together. It makes this more then "just a card". I could have put in a spot for a gift card and the possibilities are endless! I hope you all love it!

Girlie Album

I'm not sure what happened but blogger never posted this post! So here it is again!

Hey everyone, welcome to my new blog location. I thought I would share a mini-album that is finally done! I used a combination of different papers and elements. From ribbon/bows, flowers, brads, stickers, sewing, punches, digis, tags, stamps, bling, buttons, my own made sentiments, and much more. I wanted to make a variety of pockets and pull outs. I love to add stitching where I can, so I used some on the front cover. I have other albums where I have stitched all the mats...maybe next album! I love how pink and cheerful this album is. If you notice, I don't fully cover my pages completely. I want the person who buys this album or gets this album to be able to add their own pictures and have lots of space for that. Anyways, check out the pictures!
