Track Star

I just ran across this scrap page I made of my dad, he was on the track team in Modesto in 1934 (he was 51 when I was born, so I'm not as old as you may think :). Wow, look at those muscular legs! This is one of the few projects I have done with no stamping. This page is 8x8, I like doing this size a lot better than 12x12, they are so cute.


Paper-black gold and decorative-I've had these for a long time, not sure where they came from.


Thank You

Last weeks color challenge at SCS was to use pretty in pink, wild wasabi and whisper white. I used similar colors from a paper pack I got from Michael's and I also had to throw in some black to make the card "pop". I decided to make a thank you card since I knew they would be needed after the holidays!
Stamps-Hero Arts, Stampendous
Inks-VersaMark, black VersaFine
Plus-white embossing powder, ribbon, circle stickers

Joy To The World

This will be one of my Christmas cards this year. I love the elegance of gold and it is super easy to make, that's always a plus when you have to make about 100. Wow, I had better get started, I'm running a little behind on the Christmas card making.

stamps-Great Impressions(tree and snowflakes),Serendipity (sentiment)
inks-gold Brilliance, VersaMark
paper-cream, cranberry and gold
plus-Victorian corner stickers by Stampendous, Champagne embossing powder, ribbon (from Michael's)

Family-page two

Here is the second page for my two page layout. Yes our dogs are family too. The black and white ones name is Mini and the brown one is Maxie, when we named them my husband said "you know, Mini will probably be bigger than Maxie" well needless to say, he was right!

Family-page one

Here is a scrap page I made with a new stamp set I got from Inque Boutique. I thought I would make a page for my fabulous family, aren't the kids cute :) This is the first set of theirs I have gotten and they are great! They come in a plastic container, you peel them off and stick them on clear acrylic blocks. They are so easy to position since you can see through the block and place them exactly where you want them!

Our Friendship

I have a "Fun and Fabulous" card class this Wednesday, and this is one of the cards we will be making. I just got these stamps from Hero Arts and love them! I have done a lot of cards with the Fantastic Flourish set. Here are the directions:
1. Stamp the flourish on light blue cardstock with mushroom Adirondack ink, tear the upper edge, layer onto green paper and tear that edge.
2. Layer this onto tan cardstock that has been stamped with another flourish from the set using VersaMark ink. Glue this onto a dark brown card.
3. Stamp the tag with "Our Friendship" using mushroom ink, sponge the edge of the tag with stonewashed Adirondack ink and also sponge the torn edges of a piece of light blue paper. Glue the torn paper to the bottom of the tag and apply silver square stickers (Stampendous).
4. Layer the tag onto green and brown papers, tie with ribbon and mount to the card diagonally.
5. Apply one silver circle sticker to the O on the sticker.

I made this horizontal pocket card for the SCS challenge TC141. I used my new clear set from My Sentiments Exactly and the stamp used on the tab (my new punch I got from Michael's) and the dot border are by Stampendous. The inks are Adirondacks in denim and lettuce, I love all of the earth tone shades by Adirondack. I just happened to have decorative paper (The Slab by Provo Craft) that matched my inks, I love it when that happens!
I have a Thank You card class next month and this is one of the cards the ladies will make, hope they like it!

Let It Snow

Welcome to my very first post! I have wanted to start a blog for a while now but never seemed to get around to it (too much stamping to do). But I thought it was time so here it goes!!!!

I made this card for a Christmas card class I just had at Stamp Fever in Orange California. Everyone loves these snowmen! The stamps are by Great Impressions. I stamped and embossed the snowmen, then painted them with Twinkling h20's. I then matted it onto dark blue and silver paper. It was then glued to a blue card that was stamped with snowflakes using Adirondack Stonewashed ink. I punched a snowflake and attached it to torn dark blue paper with a small blue brad, glued this to the card and applied snowflake stickers above and below the snowflake punch.
