A Touch Up

I made this layout quite a long time ago, but I always felt like it was missing something.  I knew that I still needed to add the weight and length to it, but I just didn't love the end layout.  So, when I was adding the missing stuff I decided to try adding some black pen markings.  I think it really helped finish up the look of the layout.

Z-Fold Baby Card

I was recently surfing the internet and came across a great Z-Fold card...but of course I forgot to bookmark it.  It inspired me to make a Z-Fold card, as it's been a really long time since I've made one.  I also loved this paper.  I had some left over from a scrapbook page and really wanted to use it up on something fun.

Supplies: Paper: Bazzill & Little Yellow Bicycle (Tiny Princess); Ribbon: American Craft; Ink: SU (Lavender Lace); Nestabilities: Classic Hearts, Picot Edge Circles & Standard Circles SM; Punch: SU (Scallop Oval & 1 3/8 Circle); Stamp: SU (Best Yet & Whimsical Words); Other: Glossy Accents, Scor-Pal

4th Month

I just love this paper!!!  It's from Little Yellow Bicycle.  The story behind this layout is a tad bit funny.  I had originally completed Elsa's 4th Month layout a really, really long time ago.  But, I had labelled it incorrectly as her 3rd month.  So, I set out to peel off the 3 and put on a 4.  Well, as I was getting started I decided that I didn't really love the original I peeled off the pictures and started over.  I had recently picked up this paper from my LSS and decided it was the better fit.  You can't tell from the photos but I cut out each little square to make the quilt strip.

Supplies: Paper: Bazzill & Little Yellow Bicycle (Tiny Princess); Ink: SU (Regal Rose); Stickles: Grape & Diamond; Cricut: Hello Kitty; Stamps: CTMH (Tiny Typewritter Alphabet); Framelits: SU (Labels Collection); Other: Glossy Accents

Christmas Card on the 25th

I use to be involved with a group that would do a card every 25th day of the month.  I'm not really sure what happened to that just stopped.  So, I decided that I better try to do that on my own or I'm going to be short some cards when Christmas rolls around.  For this card, I wanted to try something different using my Scor-Pal.  I usually always use a template that I've found on the internet, but for this one I just let my Scor-Pal show me the way.  I hope you can see what I did.

Supplies: Paper: Bazzill & Unknown; Punch: MS (Arctic Snowflake); Ribbon: Michael's; Stamp: Stampendous, Recollcetions & Studio G; Stickles: Frosted Lace; Embossing Powder: Seafoam White; Ink: TH (Weathered Wood & Chipped Sapphire); Scor-Pal

First Christmas Layout

I had started to make this scrapbook page way back in October while at was at the scrapbooking retreat.  Back then I was able to complete the left side of the 2 page spread, but I lacked inspiration for the right side and probably ran out of time.  So, I finally decided to tackle this second page.  In the end they are really two different ideas using the same paper.  I am so pleased with how the left page turned out.

Supplies: Paper: Bazzill, Vellum & Bella Road (Everybody Loves Christmas); Cricut: Plantin Schoolbook & JOTS; Stickles: Crystal; Embossing Folder: TH (Woodgrain); Ribbon: American Craft; Punch: MS (Doily Lace) & SU (Scallop Trim); Embossing Powder: Ranger (Holographic); Stamp: Hero Arts

Reverse Grid Card

The challenge over at ScorPalPals this month is the Grid or Reverse Grid Technique.  I think it's a great look and should be pretty easy to achieve...I however, don't get the stamping to look as great as some people do.

First Scrapbook Page of 2012

It has been a really long time since I did a scrapbook page.  In fact, the last page I started was back in October at the retreat I was at, and I haven't finished that page yet.  One of my friends challenged our group to do a scrapbook page using a sketch.  I finally made time to take a look at the sketch the other day...and I'm so glad I did.  Here is what I came up with.

Supplies: Paper: SU (Rose Red, So Saffron & Garden Green) & K&Company (Terri Conrad Sweet Life); Cricut: Plantin Schoolbook & George and Basic Shapes; Punch: SU (Scallop Trim) & MS (Sweet Hearts); Stamp: CTMH (Tiny Typewritter Alphabet); Ink: SU (Rose Red) & TH (Peeled Paint & Worn Lipstick); Cuttlebug: Seeing Spots; Misc: Glossy Accents, Rhinestones, Ribbon, Buttons, Thread

Valentine's Tag

For the last several years I've been making a Valentine's card for the Stampin' Up group that I belong too.  I was really excited to make this tag and especially the shaker box on it.  I also found some red doily hearts at the dollar store, so I decided to use them on this project.  The word "love" was from a stencil set that I found at Michael's.

Supplies: Paper: K&Company (KP Valentine); Nestabilities: Classic Hearts; Punch: MS (Loops Hearts & Lattice Heart); Embossing
