    Today I am thrilled to share my pages for my upcoming November scrapbook club!

    The pages are 12 x 12 crumb cake.  Each side is a strip of very vanilla cardstock and an additional strip cajun craze DSP from the Regals DSP stack.
     The vanilla strips are stamped with the Gently Falling stamp set.  I used More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Old Olive inks.  The turkey was made using our fabulous punches!

    I used the 1-3/4" circle, 1" circle, Modern Label and the eyes are done using the owl punch...so are the feet!

    ............. Until tomorrow!

    Vintage Christmas Blessings

    Hey my friends!  I know you are all probably wondering what is going on with me!  I am so frustrated that life is so crazy and that my "other" job gets in the way of me being able to do the job that I love more than anything!

    I apologize for not posting every day but I am doing the best that I can right now.   I have lots of classes that I have been doing, as well as making cards for customers and swaps, of course taking care of my downline and most importantly my family and me!

    Had another scare with Paul and spent some time in the ER with an erratic heart rate/beat but all is good again!  We are in the middle of a construction project here at home too!  While I was away in St. George, Utah in September Paul decided to "surprise" me when I got home!  He tore out the wall between our kitchen and dining room and let's just say that early 1950's plaster/concrete has made a mess of my living space!  We are working a couple of hours each day trying to get it all back together but we have a ways to go!  We installed a pellet stove insert into our fireplace in what was the dining room and that is up and going now!  I will keep you posted and post before and after photos when it is done!

    Meanwhile, I am sharing this beautiful vintage card that was done by Marlene W. my friend, personal SU! assistant, and downline member!  Isn't it beautiful?!!  She used crumb cake cardstock as well as a layer of cherry cobbler and the scalloped edged cherry cobbler polka dot ribbon!  The card is embossed with one of our newer embossing folders called, Lacy Brocade.  The stamp images are from the set, Christmas Blessings. It is found on Page 19 of the Idea Book & Catalog!

    ............. Until next time!

    Summer Afternoon

    How about a break from all of the holiday projects for something a little different?!

    The stamped focal point is from the hostess stamp set called, "Summer Afternoon".

    Lovely As A christmas Tree

    I am excited to share this simple beauty with you.  It was created by one of my regular customers, Tammy S. from Moosup, CT.

    The card itself is created using cherry cobbler cardstock then layered with a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of whisper white cardstock.  It was embossed with the Snow Flurry embossing folder for the big shot and the stamped focal point is from the long time set, "Lovely As A Tree"!

    I love that this is so simple yet so elegant!  The rhinestones are a beautiful finishing touch.

    Thanks for sharing this with me Tammy!

    Happy Fall Y'All!...scrapbooking style

     Hey y'all!

    Happy Fall!  I couldn't wait to share these scrapbook pages with you all!  I had to wait until after my scrapbook club on Monday night because I wanted them to see them first!  After all...it is their club and they deserve that, right?!

     The base of the pages are created from cajun craze 12 x 12 cardstock.  The photo mats are cut from naturals ivory.

    The leaves are courtesy of the brand new big shot die in our Holiday Mini catalog called, Autumn Accents Bigz Die!  I used more mustard, old olive, pumpkin pie, and rich razzleberry cardstock to cut the leaves.
     It is difficult to see from these photos, but the leaves on the right hand page are also textured using our "Woodgrain" embossing folder for the big shot!
    What do you think of the adorable scarecrow?!  Isn't she awesome!?  She was created using the most popular big shot die there is....the "Top Note Die".  I cut her face from the naturals ivory cardstock and her hat (both the top and the brim) were cut using the top note die and the comfort cafe designer series paper.  The bird, nose, and leaves were cut from cajun craze cardstock while her bow was done using some of our Autumn Spice fabric.  I created the dimples using one of our sponge daubers and some pink pirouette ink.  I saw the idea for the scarecrow somewhere on the internet but can't recall where.  Of course I modified it to fit the application that I wanted to use it for!

    Don't you wish you were part of my scrapbook club?!  My girls are loving it!  We are planning and all day scrap event in February because we have had so much fun!

    .................Until tomorrow!

    Vintage Christmas Snowman

    So today I thought I would share my project that I am using for a Vintage Christmas Card Swap that I am in!

    I got the idea from a swap that I received while I was at Founder's Circle.  It is a simple but very beautiful project and it screams vintage to me!

    The base of the card is made from Crumbcake cardstock.  It is layered with cherry cobbler and then very vanilla.  The background is done with the "En Francais" background stamp in crumbcake ink and then sponged to give it that grungy vintage look.

    The snowman himself is done with the 2-1/2" circle punch in vanilla cardstock sponged with crumbcake ink.  His eyes and mouth are done with circle created from our punches and the nose is cut free-hand with a our paper snips and pumpkin pie cardstock.

    The Merry Christmas greeting is from the stamp set called, "More Merry Messages" and is done in early espresso ink.  Of course I had to have a scarf!  It is made with the cherry cobbler polka-dot scalloped ribbon and a vintage brad to finish it off!

    ................. Until tomorrow!

    Elegant Butterfly

    Hey friends!

    Today I am sharing a project that I created for this month's club groups.  It is another project that was inspired from a swap that I received.

    Inspired also by one of the more recent Vera Bradley patterns, I chose Summer Starfruit and Basic Black on the top of a single layer of Whisper White cardstock.
    The showcase of this project is the "Elegant Butterfly" punch.  It was used not only for the butterflies but also to form the two strips of DSP above and below the butterflies.

    I used the Patio Party DSP for the summer starfruit pieces and the Neutrals DSP stack for the black butterfly.

    The greeting is from the stamp set, "Word Play".  Of course I had to add some bling!  Each butterfly is finished off with three rhinestones!

    ............... Until tomorrow!

    Gently Falling

    Happy Wednesday everyone!

    Today I am sharing one of my October club creations.  Any one that attends my any of my club groups this month will be making this beauty!

    This project was inspired by one that I received as a swap from Founder's Circle.  The project that I received was from Desiree from Canada.

    My version was created using Cajun Craze cardstock.  The second layer is a piece of vanilla cardstock cut 4" x 5-14" and adhered to the card itself.  The third layer is another piece of vanilla cardstock that is cut 3-1/4" wide by 4-1/8" long.  On this piece of cardstock I used the stamp set called "Gently Falling".  I used More Mustard, Cajun Craze, and Old Olive inks and stamped the leaves.  I added a greeting using the stamp set, "Petite Pairs" using basic black ink.  As a finishing touch I spritzed the project using our Gold Glow Smooch Spritz.

    Once the layer was dry, I cut it into 3 equal pieces 3-1/4" x 1-3/8".  I used two silver brads on the top piece and then adhered all three strips to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.  This makes a great fall or masculine birthday card.  You could also create this as a thinking of you or even a sympathy card!

    ................. Until tomorrow!
