Album cover

I finished this album for my parents 40th wedding anniversary and fixed up the outside. It was just a plain blue album but that wouldn't do.... ;)

Card Sketch Challenge

I liked this sketch so much I thought I'd share it with the very few followers that I have. haha.
Here is the sketch: SC227
Here is my card:

I have been having some trouble getting my mojo going when it comes to cards. With mothers day around the corner I needed some motivation so I went to the card sketch for the day. I really like this sketch and could see it being very useable!!

I used Afternoon Tea Stampin' Up! dsp which is retired (r) now, groovy guava (r), soft sky (r) and bazzil bling chocolate brown. The brown grossgrain is from SU! but the cream organdy is from Hobby Lobby. I cut the border out with my silhouette in wild wasabi (r). There is some wild wasabi in the designer paper that is hard to see in the picture. I paper pieced the flower from Embrace Life with a pice of the DSP. The sentiment is from the hostess set Best Yet also retired.

I think its pretty obvious that I need to place an order and get some current products! hah.

Thanks for looking! :)

Just a few fun cards

There was a VSN mini this past weekend on Splitcoast. These are a few of the projects that I did for it.

THIS challenge was to use the technique Burned Batik. The background is stamped and embossed but heated a little extra long to give it a 'burned' look to it. I then used ink to make the butterflies pop. The main image is inked up then I took a chocolate chip marker and 'thumped' along the edges. I love the look it gave.

This challenge was to make a Hope Chest. I made the two pocket purse. Turned out really cute IMO.

This is a bag topper for THIS challenge. The letter is supposed to be an "L" for 'love' but it doesn't look much like an L does it? But it is. :)

This is for THIS challenge, I chose to make the diaper fold pouch. The image and words are from Unity Stamp Company and the paper and chipboard scallop is from Stampin Up!

This card was for THIS challenge to use something old, something borrowed (or given to me), something new and something blue. The blue is in the paper and the earth is colored blue. The old is the black ring that I cut out a while back while cutting something else out, the something borrowed (or given to me) was the background flower print paper and the something new is the stamp set used Eco Chic by Unity Stamp Company.
