So Thankful

I'm back!  Look at me with another card already!  This card just kind of evolved.  I started out with a card front for breast cancer support and wanted to add something behind it. 
 Do you see anything about breast cancer in this card?  That card front is still on my table, waiting for a backing!  LOL!  I used a Paper Lace cut for the background.  I didn't want it so stark white, so I used pink and cream inks to distress it. 
 These pretty cuts are all from Lori's Garden Imagine cartridge. 
 The sentiment is from Pink By Design and a little shiny ribbon strip complete the front.  Really very simple. 
This mat is a preinstalled Imagine cut, also inked with pink and cream.  Very simple really, but I like the way it turned out.  Now to do something with that other card front! ;)

Thanks for checking in!  Have a great day!

Fun Accordion Fold Gate Card

Hello and thanks for stopping by!  I have a fun card to share with you today.  I saw this card in the Cardmaker magazineFUN FOLDS -- Caution and just fell in love with it.  So I had to give it a try with my own theme.
I know that sometimes I'm a bit thickheaded, but I didn't quite get the directions straight and after cutting my second sheet and still coming out wrong, I just decided to make it work.  So mine has an extra fold, but it works! 

This sentiment is from a Disney stamps set.  I've had this set for a couple of years and this is the first time I've used it! 
                                          Isn't this fun?
This little cutie is from Whoopsi Daisy, the label is pre-installed on the Imagine and the sentiment is an old stamp I bought from LTD several years ago.  All edges are inked with a Plum inkpad from Stampabilites and I added a few I-Rock gems here and there. 

Die cuts are from Disney Dreams Come True, Disney Happily Ever After and George & Basic Shapes.

This one was definately a learning experience, next time I'll have some better measurements for all those little sections!!!  Thanks for stopping by!

My Sheri Crafts #92

Welcome to a new challenge at My Sheri Crafts!  This week we are welcoming kids and teachers Back To School.  Create any project related to a school theme.  I had some pictures of Grandparent's Day that I had not scrapbooked yet so I decided now was a good time.                   

 This fun background paper is from my stash and doesn't have a name on it.  I've been holding on to it for a long time.  With the paper being so busy, I didn't want to use very many embellishments.  So I just added a few coordinating stickers.
I found some cute border strips from Mrs. Grossman's Design Lines in my stash.  These strips look like the lined paper used to teach writing, so I wrote Lexi's name across it as if she were practicing.  I loved the crinkled look of the border, it reminds me of that crinkled border teachers use on their bulletin boards!

 Notice the title block says "1st grade" ?  She started 6th grade this year!  I'm still just a little behind on my scrapbooking! 

But now it's your turn to get your crafty cap on and show us your school related projects!  Maybe we will see you as our Guest Designer next week or you might get an "Ooh-la-la" button .  Be sure to stop by all the blogs of my Design Team sisters and see their fantastic projects.  Hope to see your projects linked up over at My Sheri Crafts!

Just Rite Friday Challenge

 Hello and HAPPY FRIDAY!!  I'm really looking forward to this weekend.  Tomorrow I get to spend the day with my granddaughters and Mother In Law at Silver Dollar City!  Girl Time!

  This afternoon I completed a card I had started a few days ago.  I decided I needed to use up some things I had laying on my work desk so I picked up a strip of little ballerinas I had printed on vinyl right after I got my Imagine.  These are from the "Santa's Village" cartidge, but I didn't have the settings right for it to cut through the vinyl, so it just kind of scratched the surface.  So I cut one out and stuck it on some scraps of pink and violet handmade paper and added a flower from my stash.  Well, it still needed something to make it pop.  The Just Rite Friday challenge this week is to use colors from the opposite sides of the color wheel.  When I added the yellow, it was just what this card needed!

 The sentiment is a Just Rite stamp from the Old Friends set.  I had the violet flower already glued down and found a yellow one to add to it.   The right side looked kind of blank, so I simply added some yellow metal brads and it gave it a little more balance.

 I just love this sentiment.  It's a 2" circle stamp, edges inked with violet ink and mounted with pop-dots.
What do you think?  Not too bad for a messed up cut and scraps, huh?  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Fun little Ice Cream Birthday Card

 Hi!  Thanks for coming by to see me.  Today I have a cute little card to share with you.  I used a pink A2 card base from my stash and added a bright piece of print party paper. 

The tag is cut with my Cuttlebug and tag die.  The sentiment is from Pink By Design, Take the Cake set.  The ribbon is from my stash.          All edges are inked with a red stamp pad. 

This ice cream cone is cut from Doodle Charms.  The ice cream part is cut from glitter paper and I added red stickles for "topping" and a red "cherry" button.

This was another fun card, and fairly simple.  I hope you like it, please leave me a comment.  I hope you have a wonderful day--it's almost the weekend!  God bless you!

My Sheri Crafts Challenge #91

Hello and welcome to my blog!  I'm so glad you stopped by!  Today we have another fun challenge over at My Sheri Crafts.  This time it's called: "Back & Forth" - Use an accordion/fan fold as one of your project's elements ... can be simply a strip, fan, rosette -- whatever you imagine!

This is a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base so I took 2 strips of paper 2" x 8 1/2" and scored the folds at intervals of 1", then 1/2", then 1", then 1/2".  So they were scored at 1", 1 1/2", 2 1/2", 3", 4", 4 1/2", 5 1/2, 6", etc.  I glued the 2 strips together then added some trim and some really pretty pink glitter.

The sentiment stamp is from Stampabilities.

A closeup of the cute trim that was in a stash my DT sister sent me!

More trim to finish out the inside and there you have it!  Now it's your turn to start folding and join us at My Sheri Crafts.  Be sure to check out all my DT sister's creations, they do such beautiful work!  Maybe you will be our next Guest Designer!  Have fun!
