I think it turned out super cute!
Sunday, July 27, 2008
This time I used Grey cs from Oriental Trading (it was 150 different colored sheets for about $20). I then used CTMH Watermelon retired B&T paper and some Watermelon textured cs. I stamped the image in CTMH Grey Wool and then used my blender pen to color it in (with Bubblegum ink for the ears). I used some random pink grosgrain ribbon.
Check it out...
So, on the outside it says Life's a Jungle... but it's such a cute, pretty card! On the inside I wrote "but it IS easier to manage when you're looking good!"

Check her site out- wow, she is very talented!
So, go on over and try to win her card...
If you don't know how to post a comment or card, let me know and I'll walk you through it...
I used 3 of the papers... the flowers, the polka dots, and the pink (on the dimensional flower). I used brown grosgrain ribbon to help tie it together. I ran the polka dot paper through the cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder, and then used some olive cs and stamped "Celebrate" from the Say it in Style stamp set in antique photo from Ranger Inks. My favorite thing was putting stickles on all the hollyhock (pink) flowers for sparkle and shine!

I think it is done, but not completely sure, so I will wait a day or so and then post it.
Hope you are enjoying your day!

Then, I have Terry's bday card to make for August 5th... and then a "dry spell" so to speak of needed cards.
So, here's my problem, I want to make cards but don't have any occasions or people to give them to... now, Terry has asked for a 'tennis-themed' Thank you card for a woman at work (she gave us a racket that is Jake-sized), but I have no TENNIS anything.
Do you have any ideas for me??
This does mean I am going to start pulling out some ideas for scrapping, but still card-making is very refresing b/c it's techniques I don't use on pages and I finish quickly.
Post your comments below.

Well, a couple of weeks or so ago I was concerned about something in my life. It could have been such a big deal if it had not turned out well. But, God knew that I needed to be reminded of His guidance, my faith is in Him alone, and He is in control. My friend Melissa sent me this awesome card!!
It is from the CTMH set With Love (a stamp of the month set for June-sorry you missed it!). I absolutely LOVE this set (and so happy I now have 1). She stamped the images on paper and cut them out and glued them to the card (paper piecing). The flower and stem images are stamped directly on the card. Before she did anything (I think) she used a rubber brayer to lay down that background color- looks so smooth).
Such a fabulous card and I am so glad to call her "friend!" (Of course the best part was all the scripture verses inside to remind me of how Great a God we have!)

Any ideas for a girl turning 13??

I folded the top corner down and glued a piece of the same paper I used for matting underneath. Then, on the large mat I used stickles on some of the stars for some sparkle. I double matted his picture for emphasis b/c it was such a great shot.
Emma's page is a bit more imaginative- I took an idea from the GASC class I took (where I actually used the paper and products from that class for her page) and made a little booklet for more pictures underneath. The paper is "Flowered Up" from the StoryTellers Club. It's a business that is a kit of the month club. They had some awesome stuff (I got 4 of their "premium" packs and 7 of their "deluxe" packs for FREE by taking the class!!).
This is what the page looks like in her book. You can see the ribbon got folded behind the pic and I double matted the family pic. I made the booklet of the pic of the 2 of them with the little tab folder thing on the picture. When you flip the picture (like a book)...
you get Daddy & kids, and then flip again...
and it's me and the kids.
Very easy to do!

I had a video to explain all this, tried editing it, uploading twice and have spent way too much time on it!! My ideas are pretty cute, but you'll just have to ask in person! :-)
The idea to use 2 of my 'bug embossing folders on the SAME sheet of paper came from Inking Aloud on her medallion card that she CASEd (essentially it's copy and steal- but in a good way- they inspire you!) from this card (awesome huh?). The flowers come from both The Paper studio (spare parts) and some other random flower. The brad has some stickles on it for bling (shows up in real life!) and came from Queen & Co. (I got a baggie for a $1 at GASC). The ribbon is American Crafts (love the polka dots!). Finally, I stamped it with Say It in Style from CTMH in white daisy ink.

July's events start off strong on the 4th- My Mom's up first. Her birthday really is on the 4th- neat day to have a birthday, but it does get lost a bit with parades and fireworks, then it's Terry's mom's day, then a couple of friends, our best friends' daughter (6 months younger than Jake), niece on my side, then finally, my stepmother- WHEW! A lot of birthdays!!
Good thing I started making cards, right? HA!
Anyway, I've got some cards made up and hope to scan them and get some things posted tonight or tomorrow (kinda depends on other "stuff")
Hope you enjoy!
