Making Memories Monday

Good Morning Everyone!

Well I did not enjoy the Super Bowl.  I wanted Carolina to win so that did not help.  I also did not enjoy the half time show.  Usually they have a good show but to me this was one of the worst shows ever.  I also was not impressed with the commercials.  I admit when I don't care about the teams I watch to see the commercials and half time show.  I know most of you may not care about it but I love watching sports.  In fact a little known love of mine is NASCAR.  I love it and can't wait for it to start up again.  I only have to wait 5 more days!  I love watching the Daytona 500 which will be on the 21st this year.  How about you, any other NASCAR fans out there?

I worked on quite a few of my projects yesterday.  I got my commission project completed, almost completed one fundraiser project (the glue had to dry so I did not get it finished but will finish it up today), started another fundraiser project, worked on medallions for Remi's birthday party, made my memory page for today, my card for tomorrow, as well as another card for later this week.  I was pleased with all I got done.

Today is my Making Memories share day.  In the past I have been sharing pages I created for Zoie.  I thought it would be fun to show you a page I did for Remi.  These pictures were taken with her first experience with food.  She was given avecado.  She played with it for a while and then did eat some.  She did not mind it and it was fun watching her play with it.

The pocket inserts were created using some of the supplies the participants of our Creative Escape received.  I wanted to show them how they could use those supplies to complete a Pocket Page scrapbook layout.  Here is a page I will put in Remi's book.




I will be looking for some scrap book binders as the ones we carry do not appeal to me.  Does anyone know other companies who make linen scrap books?

Thanks for visiting me today.  I will be working in my craft room again today to finish up the fundraiser projects I started, start another project, and make my card for Wednesday.  I love being creative!  Have a Marvelous Monday!

Watercolor Blending

Hello Everyone!

Well I did not get as much done yesterday as I had hoped.  Jess had to take Lily to the vet so I had the girls and later in the afternoon she had a baby shower so I had Remi.  I did get my commission project almost completed, one fundraiser project almost completed, and I did not have to make thank you cards as I had some in my stash so I got them ready to mail.  Today I am going to finish up the commission project and the fundraiser project, start another fundraiser project and make some cards to post this week.  Hopefully nothing will change my plans.

Last Saturday I met a friend who had signed up for my Bags & Tags club.  She does not live locally so I met her to give her supplies for the class as well as work on the first project.  I shared with her a project I posted the other day and she asked how I got the 2 toned colors on my eggs.  I decided to make a video on the technique.  I am calling it watercolor blending.  Here is my video to show you how to do the technique.

My version of an internet card

Hello Stampers!

Yesterday was crazy.  We woke up to snow on the ground.  Then it stopped snowing and the sun came out.  Then the sun disappeared and it started snowing again.  It finally cleared up and the sun came out.  It was chilly all day and windy.  They are watching the weather as a major snow storm could develop about mid week.

I had 3 different workshops yesterday.  Everyone had a great time and loved the cards.  I love sharing my cards with others and helping them discover the creative side they have!

My card today is one of the cards we made in my workshop this month.  I saw a similar design on the Stampin' Up demo site and liked it.  I modified it to use in the workshop.

I began by adding a piece of the Botanical Gardens vellum from the Sale-abration catalog.  I then added a piece of Botanical Gardens designer series paper.  Now it was time to make the tag.  I started with a piece of white that I used the scallop tag topper punch on.  I then stamped it with images from the Botanical Blooms stamp set.  I used a post-it note to ink up only a portion of the stamp from Botanicals For You and stamped it on the bottom.  Now I needed a flower so I used the Botanical Builder framelits to cut out a flower.  I added it to my tag.  I finished off the tag with some linen thread.  My tag was added to my card base using dimensionals.  Here is my finished version.

My Pink Pocket Letter

Happy Friday Stampers!

I hope you have some fun plans for today.  It was supposed to snow last night so I was hoping I would get my 3 workshops in today.  In between and after them Jess and I will be working on things for Remi's first birthday.  We have some things we want to make.  I will be sharing them with you.  I still can't believe she is going to be 1 year old!  Where did the past year go?

Last week I shared the Pink Pocket Letter I received from my friend.  Today I am going to share the Pocket Letter I sent her.

I began by pulling my Pink Pirouette card stock and Pink Pirouette patterned paper stack.  I saw in a video where someone had made a large flap for the front of her pocket letter.  I decided to make one for my pocket letter.  After I had the flap created, I punched the bottom with a border punch I have.  I then added some patterned paper to the flap.  I needed a way to keep the flap closed, so I attached a mini magnet I had to the back of it and then wrapped a ribbon around the flap to hide the magnet.  I attached the ribbon in the lower left hand corner as I could then use my punched flowers to hid the seam.  I punched my flowers as well as a bow and some butterflies.  I added a heart in the upper right hand corner.  I topped my flowers and butterfly off with some rhinestones.  My flap was finished now to move on to the pockets.


I created a variety of different designs for the pockets.  I added some sentiments, I created a butterfly shaker pocket, a jeweled stick pin, and several interactive pockets.  I added my magnet to the middle card pocket and then covered it with paper and a punched image.  The magnets are used to hold the flap down.  I also added some ribbon down the punched spine and punched holes so it could be added to a binder.  Here are the pockets for my pocket letter.



Now that I had the front of my pocket letter and flap completed, I needed to add all my goodies.  I had picked up a few things here and there and also made some cute items she could use for other pocket letters.  I included some washi tape, rhinestones, tags, shaped paper clips, flower embellishments, and a bright pink notebook.  Here is a picture of all the items.



To finish off my pocket letter I wanted to make a charm to hang from the top hole.  I stamped an image on a strip of paper, cut a piece of glimmer paper, created a ribbon tag with ribbons, tulle, and feathers, as well as another punched flower.  All of the paper elements I covered with mod podge to protect them  Here is the picture of the charm.

Noelia Iglesias Gonzalez   


Laura is also having a Giveaway.  The details are  at the bottom!

My first project is a tag.  I began by doing a watercolor background.  I used Tim Holtz distress inks in Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint.  Once I had my background created, I created the little flowers using a small heart.  I then used a swirl and stamped it with the Mowed Lawn and then black.  To finish my tag I added some fuzzy fibers.  Here is my tag.                      



My second project was a cute little treat box for Easter.  I used the We R Memory Keepers envelope punch board.  I used the punch board to make my box out of black.  I had some strips of green left over from the tag so I grabbed my fringe scissors and created some grass.  I attached it to the bottom of my box.  I then used the same watercolor technique to create pieces for my eggs.  I used Mustard Seed  and Scattered Straw for the yellow.  For the pink I used Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar.  I wanted some blue eggs so I used Peacock Feathers and Broken China.  Once my paper was dry I used an oval punch to punch out my eggs.  I attached my eggs all over my box.  The only thing I needed was a ribbon to tie it closed.  Here is my box.                       



We also have a fantastic prize giveaway.


Here are the requirements to be entered in the drawing for the giveaway.

Coloring Down the Lines - Sky is the Limit

Hello Ladies!

Wow I was on the run all day yesterday.  I was really tired last night.  I ended my day with 6 fabulous ladies who came to make our February cards.  They had a good time and so did I!  It was nice meeting some new stampers and helping them to have fun while stamping.

Today is the Coloring Down the Lines blog hop.  We had  fun picture with matching colors this week.

That poor little bird looks so cold!  He is so cute though!  I recently saw a great splatter technique that I wanted to try.  While my Smoky Slate ink was too watered down, I do like the look.

I started with a piece of watercolor paper.  I splattered the Smoky Slate on first.  Then I added a splatter of Basic Gray.  I ended with a splatter of Pacific Point.  You can spritz it with water a little to cause the colors to bleed but since my Smoky Slate was too watered down my bled and I decided not to spritz it.

I then attached it to my card base.  I stamped the plane from Sky is the Limit.  I inked up only a part of the clouds and off stamped them to make them a little lighter than full strength ink.  I stamped the clouds to look like the were coming out of the back of the plane.  I cut the plane and clouds out.  I attached the cut out using dimensionals.  My card was finished.  Here is my completed card.

Making Memories Monday - Christmas

Hello Everyone!

Well we are warming up and all the snow is melting.  My yard is very mushy.  How about your place.  What is the weather like?  Today is supposed to be rainy so I am going to try and do some video taping today.

I thought I would walk you through my process to make my pages today.  I have lots of Project Life kits and if you are like me you wonder how to get started. 


The first step is take all your cards that fit a theme or holiday and organize them by size.  Make sure you also pull all your embellishments and stickers.



After you have your cards divided by size, take one size and organize them by orientation for when you would use them.  Some will need to be used horizontally, some need to be used vertically, and some can be used either way.


Here are some examples of cards that can be used either way.  The cards below have the same image on the front and back.  So if your pocket is vertical you would use the side that has the picture going vertical.  The same is true if your pocket is horizontal.


Now that you have your cards organized, you are ready to work on your pockets.  Choose your pictures you are planning on using and find the pocket design that your photos fit in.  Once you have your pocket you can lay your pictures out the way you want them to be on the page.


Your next step is to address the empty pockets.  Find the cards with the correct orientation and choose the ones you want for your page.  Make sure you have one pocket you can use for journaling.


Now if you want you can stop there and your page is completed.  I like to add my own special touch so I added some embellishments to my pockets.

For the first photo there was a lot of steps so I decided to cut it down.  I took a piece of 4" x 6" white card stock and the Work of Art stamp set and stamped some stripes in the colors used in the colors of the other cards.  I then added a punched a tree and modified the size to fit the card.  I then attached my cut down photo using tape.

I then took all the center cards and added a sticker, some sequins, ribbon and a punched tag to decorate them a little.

For the last photo I had a card that was similar to the one I used for the first photo.  I cut down my photo and attached it to the card.  Here is my final completed page.



I then used the same process to do another page for Zoie's book  I left the photos the way they were.  I added my cards and only had to add something to the first and last card in the row.

For the first card, I cut our some card stock and decorated them to look like presents.  The last card I used some foil punched stars and attached them.  Here is my finished page.





I hope you enjoyed my pages today and that you found the description of my process helpful.  Let me know if you liked my post today and would like to see some more explanations.

Thanks for visiting me today.  I hope you take some time for you today!  Have a marvelous Monday!

Valentine Tag Swap

Hello Ladies!

Well yesterday I met a friend and did the Bags & Tags class.  We had lunch first and then played for a little bit.  I also test drove 6 cars as I am looking for a new car.  I eliminated 2 of the 6.  I still have 5 on my list to check out and see how they drive.  I may try and do a few of those this week.  Then I can eliminate some of the others and narrow it down some more.

Today I have a Valentine Tag I made for a swap.  I signed up and was given 5 people to swap with.  I made my tags and sent them out.

To make my tag I first took a piece of black card stock and punched the corners.  Then I added a piece of the Everyday Chic ds paper.  I stamped the sentiment and used the banner punch to flag the ends.  I mounted it on a piece of Real Red that I had flagged the ends also.  I mounted this using dimensionals.  I punched a large heart out of red glimmer paper and attached to the tag with glue dots.  To finish it off I punched some small silver hearts and attached them with glue dots.  Here is what the tag looked like.

Timeless Elegance Butterfly

Good Morning Ladies!

Yesterday I did 2 sessions of my Bags & Tags class.  We had a lot of fun and the ladies loved the first bag.  When I was finished I managed to squeak in some time to make a design team commitment.  I need to get it photographed today so I have it ready to post next week for the blog hop.  So what are you going to be doing today?

I was playing with some of the Timeless Elegance ds paper.  It has been a while since I used that paper so I thought I would play a little with it.

I chose one of the small print patterns for the card base layer.  I then used the flower print to cut a strip and mount on Basic Black card stock.  I attached this strip to the lower edge of my card.  I used a piece of black to cut a butterfly using the Butterflies Thinlits.  I used dimensionals to attach to my card.  I added a large rhinestone to the body.  Using Memento Tuxedo Black, I stamped the sentiment in the upper left hand corner.  Here is what my creation looks like.

Pink Pocket Letter

Happy Friday Everyone!

I had a good day yesterday.  I went to the yarn shop and finally got past a long section of my shawl.  I have a set up section and then I have the final lace section.  I hope to get it finished by next week - notice I said hope.  Something always comes up and messes up my plans.  I also got a pedicure.  Then last night I set up for my Bags & Tags class this morning.  I am excited about this class and to teach my ladies some other items to make with the Gift Bag punch board besides gift bags.

I also got happy mail the other day.  I had participated in a snow pocket letter swap.  The lady I swapped with did a fabulous job!  I asked her where she got her ideas and she said she got them from You Tube.  She gave me the name of the lady who had some tutorials for other ideas.  I have been watching all kinds of videos.  She and I agreed to swap another pocket letter and that it would be pink.  Her pocket letter came the other day and just look at this fabulous creation!



























some of the goodies in the back pockets


a tag, pen, and stamped images she also sent




I love the pocket tag she sent.  I watched the same video and will be trying some of these.  I mailed her my pocket letter today and she should get it on Monday.  Once she receives mine I will post pictures of mine.

Thanks for visiting me today.  I am hoping to get some time today to work on a design team commitment.  It will depend on the timing between my 2 classes.  Have a Fabulous Friday!

Robbie

Playing with some new goodies!

Hello Stampers!

I hope you all had a good day yesterday and you are ready to tackle today!  I got a lot accomplished yesterday.  In fact I got more done than I thought I would.  I was pleased as I really had a lot to do.  I managed to get some photos taken, my pocket letter finished and put together, and my cards for my workshop next month completed.  I was pleased!

I recently got the Going Places ds paper stack from the Occasions catalog.  I did not get the stamp set as I was only going to use it for our Bags & Tags class.  I decided I wanted to play with it so I remembered the World Map stamp.  I decided to combine the two and see what I could come up with.

I began by stamping the World Map with Sahara Sand on Very Vanilla card stock.  I then choose a piece of the ds paper that would go and added it to the bottom as a strip.  I pulled out my sentiment and stamped it with Lost Lagoon.  I punched it out with the 1 1/2" circle punch.  I then punched a 1 3/4" circle from Lost Lagoon.  I mounted the two and added to my card front using dimensionals.  Here is what my final creation looks like.

Coloring Down the Lines - What I Love

Happy Mid-Week Stampers!

Well our school are finally opening back up today.  They are on a 2 hour delay but the kids have not been in school since last Thursday.  I am sure they are not happy about it.  There are even some places on my lawn that you can actually see the grass.  Hopefully that is it for the snow for us this year.  The temperatures are supposed to be in the 50's by the weekend.  I know my electric bill will love it.

Today is the Coloring Down the Lines blog hop.  We have a full slate of hoppers this time.  It has been a while with everyone being so busy.  This week we have a fun color challenge.


Stampin' Up color matches

 

Is that outfit so cute!  Wish I could wear something like that.  Since I can't, I will use the colors to make a great card. 

I decided to use a cute Sale-abration set I got - What I Love.  I chose to use a little bit different color for the flowers.  I picked Marina Mist and Crumb Cake.  To do the flowers I used the larger solid image and inked it up.  I then off stamped it 2 times before stamping on my card stock.  I then used the other solid image and off stamped it 1 time before stamping it on top of the other flower I had stamped.  I used the outline image and inked it up and stamped it full strength on the flower already created.  That gave me the different shades I needed for my flower.  I created a couple of masks for the flower so I could stamp the leaf spray.  I used Crumb Cake for the leaves.  I went with pearls rather than rhinestones for something different on this card.  After I had my front panel stamped, I layered my ribbons.  I only needed to stamp my sentiment and punch it out.  Here is my final creation.

Hand Stamped Sentiments - Thank You

Hello Ladies!

Well schools are closed here again today.  I guess they still have lots of back roads that are not cleared yet.  I have 2 ladies coming later today for my Bags & Tags club.  I have 2 scheduled for tonight also but not sure if they will venture out since it will be after dark and the roads may not be safe as they will melt during the day and refreeze at night.

Today is our Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.  This time we have a fun sketch.




I just got some new stamps from the Occasions and Sale-abration catalogs.  I decided to use one of the sets on this sketch.  When I looked at the center panel I thought about the clouds embossing folder we use to have the new set Sky is the Limit.  I thought they would be perfect and make a great card.  I embossed the Soft Sky panel and then took the Whisper White craft pad and swiped it it across the raised dots.  This made the clouds pop.  I stamped the plane using Basic Gray.  I then cut it out.  I used some Crystal Effects on the propeller.  When it was dry I attached it to the panel using dimensionals.  To address the flag shapes I stamped the cloud stamp on each side.  I then attached the embosssed panel and added some candy dots.  Here is what my final creation looks like.

Mint Watercolor Hello

Good Morning Ladies!

Well I blew it!  I started working on my card to post today and when I had it finished I realized it is supposed to be Making Memories Monday.  If I can get my act together today I will make one to post.

Our Blizzard was unbelievable.  We did not loose electricity which is good as it was bitter cold and the winds were blowing.  It would be horrible to have to have our linemen out and up in buckets.  We also had to begin the long process of digging out.  I have a long lane to my house and the lane that I share with another house is also long.  Jess went out in the morning and spent a little over an hour shoveling.  She managed to get a 10 x 10 square shoveled.  It wasn't even a dent in what had to be done.  I went out a little later and started shoveling the driveway for just the tires of the truck.  While I was shoveling the guy who clears our main road into the development came through.  I managed to flag him down and he plowed the lane I share and my driveway.  Thank goodness as we would be digging out for days!

I went checking out the challenge blogs as I knew I would need some inspiration for this week.  I found a great color challenge at Stampin' Royalty Challenges      


I was then intrigued by the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  I thought it would be fun to work with.

    

I began by watercoloring my background with the Mint Macaron.  I used watercolor paper and spritzed it with water.  I then used an aqua painter to pick up the ink and colored the paper.  After I let it dry, I used the rings from the Timeless Textures and stamped them with Early Espresso in the upper left hand corner.  I then used Pink Pirouette ink and did a second generation stamping of the flourish from the set.  I used the "Hello" sentiment from A Dozen Thoughts and stamped it on top of the flourish.  I used the Duo Ticket punch to punch out the sentiment and did some creative punching to get a smaller ticket size.  I mounted the sentiment on the Pink Pirouette one I punched.  I then added the sentiment to the front of the card with dimensionals.  I decided to also add some Pink Pirouette chevron ribbon.  Here is my final creation.

I thought I would share a few pics I took yesterday in the late afternoon of what we got from the Blizzard.  After these photos were taken we got another 3 inches.

This was taken out my front door.


This was taken out my sunroom door at the back of the house.  In the background you can see my son-in-laws car buried in the snow.








Thanks for visiting me today.  I will be busy in my craft room today making cards for this week, my Making Memories page, and some samples for my upcoming Ronald McDonald house fund raiser.  Have a Marvelous Monday!

Retired Government Ladies cards

Hello Stampers!

Well I am playing catch up today as well as trying to get organized since I have a ton of laundry to do.  I also have a demo dinner this afternoon so I will need to allow some time for that.

I have mentioned several times I have a group of ladies who like to make cards.  These ladies all worked for the Federal Government in almost the same office.  They are all retired now and get together quite frequently to do some fun things.  My sister is one of these ladies and she asked if I would do a card class for them.  So far I have done 2 classes and we already have the next one scheduled.

I thought I would share the cards we made just last week.  Some of them you have seen and some are remakes of other cards.  The cute little penguin my sister made and added some hershey kisses.  I made the little snowflake box and added some hershey kisses inside also. 



The ladies had a fun time.  After we stamp, we have lunch and chat.  It is a fun day for them and I enjoy working with them.

Thanks for visiting me today.  Wish me luck with all I have to get done today!  Have a Sensational Sunday!

Watercolor Flowers

Good Morning Everyone!

I don't know if any of you know, but I am one of those ones who is getting the Blizzard right now.  I came home on Thursday to miss all the mess.  It started snowing here about 1:30 yesterday and at 5 when I took Bijou out we had about 3 inches already.  We were supposed to get high winds overnight so not sure if I will have electricity today or not.  I sure hope I don't loose it as it will be very cold and they won't be able to fix it until the storm is over tomorrow morning. 

Today I am sharing another card I made for my workshop earlier this month.  I saw a great color challenge at Nacho Average Challenges that I knew would make a great card.             



I began by stamping the Watercolor Wash background in Soft Sky.  I then used my punches and Night of Navy and Silver Glimmer paper to punch my flowers.  I put my flowers together and determine where I was going to put them on my card.  I added some 1/8" Silver ribbon and added a cute little bow.  I also added some rhinestones to the flowers that did not have the silver glimmer paper.  Here is my creation.
