Grade 2

Trying to get ahead of the game for spring, I had been going through my senior's scrapbook albums and pulling out the school picture pages a while ago when I realized there were some missing.  That started a whole new project of going through tubs of photos looking for what was missing!  I think I found everything I needed though..

It turns out I had not scrapped a few things so here is the senior class in second grade using the Follow Your Art designer series paper and embellishments.  I also used the Large Letters and Large Numbers framelits dies for the title...

Garden Lane Thank You

I have been putting together lots and lots of thank you cards lately getting ready to give them to use for a bridal shower and getting a start on some graduation ones for my son, niece and nephew in the spring.  

This one started with some Soft Seafoam card stock and Garden Lane designer series paper.  Then, I added some images from Love what you do both on the sentiment layer and behind it.

September Stamp Club

This month we used a couple different designer series paper collections along with a few dies and stamp sets.

For the layout, we used the Noble Peacock specialty designer series paper and the Rectangle Stitched framelits...

Hammered Grapefruit Birthday

I didn't really hammer a grapefruit for this card, I used the Hammered metal 3d embossing folder on some Grapefruit Grove foil paper for the background of the card...

This one has lots of layers and different elements.  In addition to the embossing, I used the Frosted Frames dies, Rectangle stitched framelits and Stitched shapes framelits dies for some of the layers along with the Garden Lane designer series paper.

To complete it, I added some burlap ribbon and metallic pearls.

Fundraiser Baskets

The projects I have to share with you today not terribly exciting - they are decorated card baskets that I have recently used for donations to fundraisers.  Each one has lots of handmade cards inside, most of which you have seen on the blog before but I thought I would share the decorations on the baskets this time...

The first one uses a couple pieces of  2" x 12" Noble Peacock specialty designer series paper wrapped around it like a belly band and then it is covered with gold satin ribbon around it.  Pretty simple, but it adds to the plain basket...

The second is a wooden crate that I found in the perfect size to fill with cards and I thought it fit in with the fundraiser theme of The Great Outdoors when I decorated it it...

I used some striped burlap ribbon around the whole crate and then added another piece around some Soft Suede card stock that was embossed with the pinewood planks folder.

Then, I added two layers of die cut Stitched Nested framelits - the top one was stamped with the Rustic Retreat stamp set and colored in with markers.
