You Make Me Smile

Hello everyone, here is a card made with my new favorite stamp from Hero Arts... It is the cloud background stamp and it's pretty awesome! I highly suggest you go out and buy it :-)

The sentiment is from PTI, the felt flower is from Stampin Up. I hand sticked the stem using some green floss and cut leaves and grass from some of my paper scraps. What a great card for just about anything.

I love this baby button set by PTI. Since I had this set out for a previous post, I thought I would make another couple of cards.

Here's a closer look..

All Materials except the white cardbase (Neenah) is from PTI....

Oh Baby....

In addition to the album I made recently for my co-worker, I made a card that our entire group could sign, thus I made a 5.5 x 5.5 card. I thought I should also dress up the envelope- so here it is..

The elephant template was from Papertrey ink, along with the sentiment, and patterned paper... so cute!

Baby Album Part II

These are the last 13 pages of the album.... She is a new scrapbooker, so I tried to make this as easy as possible for her to just drop in 4x6 pictures of the baby.

I love how quickly this came together after thinking about the layouts. I really repeated three of the layouts throughout the book - can you tell?

Baby Album Part I

This is the first part of the baby album I created for a co-worker. She is having a boy, so the album is themed accordingly.

Creations from Girls Weekend Part II

Part II of my weekend adventure with the girls.

I love this card. It's so simple with the white embossed background to "pop" the image in the circle. The stamp is from Hero Arts, another new stamp I purchased from their new catalog. The sentiment is from PTI's "Say It With Style" set. Finally the epoxy brad is from KI memories.

This card was an inspired by Tiffany's card (check it out here). Such a simple but striking card using colors and textures. The stamp set is from Stampin Up, I {heart} Harts. Of course I didn't have it, but after using it this weekend, I'll have to buy it.

My final card is another simple card that I absolutely love! The card's background it embossed with a Quickutz embossing folder for added texture. The focal image is a bird and leaf branch that was punched from the new Stampin Up punch. Finally, the sentiment is stamped from PTI's Signature Greetings.

I decided to play along with this challenge since I have so many scraps to choose from :-)

Supplies: Cardstock My Mind's Eye - various collections, Neenah White, SU Craft
Stamp Set: PTI Say It With Style & Background Basics - Retro

2010 Can you Believe it!!!

Happy New Year to all. I know it's been a while since I've blogged, but December really flew by. However, I did want to show you all my belated Christmas gift.

Isn't it Awesome!!!! It's 24 inches of awesomeness to be exact. I was planning on getting the 27 inch monitor, but I'm glad I went with the 24 inch cause it is huge! I will be using this to post my future bloggings so look forward to many more in the near future.

Have a great week!
