Thanksgiving 2008

This is a layout I wanted to do of Joey and me this past Thanksgiving.

Using layers of Cricut flower cuts and ribbon for stems, I created perfect flowers for a boy's page. And..you gotta love that face..:)

"When you smile...

This is Nina with face painting from her school's fall festival. If you look at the 'stemmed flower' you will see I foldered it into quarters for a different look and used wire ribbon for the stem.

Stamped card

This is a card I did for a stamp challenge.

Sweet Little Boy

In the process of taking Ian's top off, I noticed how cute he looked right before the shirt came off his head. Luckily, my camera was sitting right there for me to get a photo of that sweet face.

Make Believe

This layout is a hybred. Using my wide format printer, I was able to print the top photo and journaling on a 12x12 sheet. Photos, flower, lace and dragon fly were then attached.


Using all those embellishments I enjoy working with, I created this page with my sweet Nina.

ATC Nina

Here is an ATC I did using Nina as my subject. The photo was an accident that happened when I went to print and since I loved how it came out, I decided to keep it. I would never have thought to alter her hair, but I like how it came out.

The Kiss

I wanted to do a vintage look with this photo, so I added a vintage clipart on textured ATC cardstock. I so enjoy using all the decorative embellishments.


I just had to do a layout of Ian and me! I see something in the 'smiles' :)

Happy Birthday Card

As a design team member at http://www.haveyourwaywithpaper.com/, I received sponsor products from Memories Complete. I was able to make a quick and easy card by embossing Core'dinations paper with a Cuttlebug folder and adhering it to the card and them embellishing it with stickers from Memories Complete.

Retirement card

This is a tri-fold card that I made. It has a slider to hold it closed.

SWARM challenge

I'm attending a SWARM in February hosted by my sweet friend BettyBee. Everyone attending was given a few supplies and a challenge to make a card with it. Martha Stewart branches, a piece of ribbon, a circle and a rectangle cardstock. We could add what we wanted, but had to use the supplies sent. I just need to add the ribbon (which I lost and will receive another piece from Betty)

'Dryer sheet card

Something I recently learned using a 'used' dryer sheet. Stamp your card and color. Run through an adhesive machine or spray with adhesive. Attach a used dryer sheet and smooth. Cut off excess sheet. Then take fine glitter and sprinkle on top of the dryer sheet and press with your fingers. Tap off any excess. Then I sprayed with hairspray to keep glitter in place. So fun, so simple!
