some stuff...

My mom is coming into town this week (from Pa) and my boys havent seen her since november and I am terrible about sending pictures so I thought I would make her a little book to take home with her. Its nothing big, but quick, easy, and cute. Instead of having all the pictures cut, you can add journaling or embellishments or something, but i thought maybe she would like more pictures to show off to everyone. When its all put together (folded up) it is a 4x4 square. Then when you open it, You can see all the pictures, journaling, etc.

Here is one of the other cards we will be making at my class on the 30th with the for father stamp set. I wasnt real sure if I liked it after I got it all together, but it has definately grown on me. It has such a country feel and the colors are kind of uplifting. Its completely different than the other 3 cards we will be making whcih use browns as a base color. This one uses real red, river rock, western sky dsp, not quite navy, and very vanilla cardstock. I used the ticket punch on the corners and then put vintage brads on the not quite navy where the corners are missing. It was looking awefully plain so I put some bashful blue grossgrain ribbon across it which helped to break up the stripes a bit. I used my stampin pastels and blender pens to color in the stamped image.

Mother's Day Gift

I know its not such a great picture but this was a gift for my mother in law. The "flowers" are pictures of all of her grandchildren. I got the vase and dowl rods at michaels and the stones at walmart. Then I simply punched out some scallops using the SU scallop punch and glued pictures in the center of them on both sides (allowing her to turn the picture around if she wanted to look at a new one). I used an industrial strength glue (E6000 i think) to glue the scallops to the dowl rods. Then I took SU's certainly celery and tied it around the rods as leafs and finished it off with chocolate chip taffeta ribbon.

scrappin with Tart & Tangy

Isn't this set just perfect for a summer themed scrapbook page? I used real read, only orange, wild wasabi, and bashful blue cardstock. I added a stip of the summer picnic designer paper. I used certainly celery, only orange, garden green and real red markers and ink pades. You cant tell it from the picture, but I stamped cherries on the red cardstock to make a simple background. I crimped the scalloped border to give it that extra dimension and added some eyelets and ribbon to finish it off.

For this second page, its an 8x8 page with 2 1/2 by 2 1/2 squares. I crimped the scalloped circles for the added dimension again. I really love that crimper. I also used the really red, only orange, wild wasabi, and bashful blue cardstocks, summer picnic designer paper, and coordinating inks on this page. I again used the eyelets in the center square. I am going to put pictures in the orange, green, and blue empty squares (havnet decided which pics yet though) and then I will add some journaling with a white journaling pen in the center. Its a very simple, versatile, cute page.
