A Hoot of A Time!

These cards were made for my TV segment on Great Day St. Louis June 19th. I had so much fun! Anyway, I used this adorable owl stamp, Basic Grey paper cut to a 5x5 size to fit the paper bag card size, Basic Grey buttons, scalloped circle die by Spellbinders as well as the Color Box distressing tool that I LOVE! I carry all these products (: 
I used Fancy Pants ribbon, Basic Grey paper for the crinkled flowers, a Basic Grey button, Cord for the branch, and last but not least this adorable owl stamp! If you haven't visited my store in some time take a look. I have been adding new items almost continually, and I have to say the website is packed with amazingly fun products! Go Shopping!

Thank You Scrapling!

This is a Scrapling I made for my SS in my D.I.V.A.S group on SCS. This was my first Scrapling and I know not my last. I colored this image using my Copics. The inside I used a SU set as well. 
This is an inside view of my Scrapling. You may notice the metal embellishment I used. It comes from a set of 350!!!! I use this set all the time and I am happy to say I am not low on metal embellishments. 
I hope you are having a great weekend! DH and I took a 40 mile bike ride last night, so I am really stiff this morning (: We are planning on a 50 mile to Herman Mo in a few weeks to stay at a B&B and eat at a nice German Restaurant, and back the next morning 50 miles (:  We usually ride 20 due to time limitations, but last night was killer! I have bug bites all over my body and my DH doesn't! I am going to finish up my Blog visits and head to the gym to work this stiffness out (:

Clearly Wisteria!

This is a clear album that I have made using the clear album set on my website. I used two sets. I used alcohol ink in purple and blue. My picture is not showing the richness of color that the inks created. I used the tiny pearls with pearl paint by Ranger. I added purple stickles to the leaves of the flowers. Rub ons were used to create the front title. It reads, " A friend is a second self" as well as, " Friends are born not made" 
Wisteria paper was used on the inside of the album. This is GORGEOUS paper! I used purple stickles to trim around the pages. 
Spellbinders scallop circle die was used to create the two photo mats. 
This picture makes it hard to see the Wisteria paper that ends the book. I bound this album with thick wired ribbon. The silk flowers are from the floral department and can be plucked out of a hydrangea bunch. The beauty of a clear album is that you can see through all the layers and the album always has dimension as you turn the pages. I really had fun with this project (:

Great Day St. Louis Father's Day Card!

This is the finished Paper Bag card that was made for Great Day St. Louis, Friday, June 19th.
I used Basic Grey 6x6 paper, chipboard alphabet, Spellbinders scalloped circles (I used a Sizzix die cut tool), Color Box ink and distressing tool, Glue Glider Pro adhesive and embellishments. Most supplies can be found on my website Scrapbook Store at Your Door.
Start with a basic lunch sack and fold in half. Your bag opening should be the back of the card. Use a little adhesive to tape the edges that would open if you were using this as a lunch sack.  You will place a little treat of your choice in this opening once your card is finished. 
I used Spellbinders Scalloped Circles with my Big Shot Sizzix on my card, but you can use any die cut machine or paper punch to create similar looks. 
The larger scalloped circle (patterned paper) is adhered flat on top of the 5x5 patterned paper. The smaller (solid colored) scalloped circle is raised up with pop dots. I also placed two small Basic Grey brads on the sides of the top scallop. I used a paper piercer to create tiny holes around the top scallop. Distressing with ink adds to the ruggedness of this manly card, so I used the Color Box distressing tool with a Dark Brown ink. Distress with ink on every layer of paper to achieve a finished look. 
I used Basic Grey Archaic 6x6 paper pad for this card. I cut my sheets to 5x5 in size to fit the paper bag. Using quality paper packs like Basic Grey, allows for perfect coordinating of pattern paper's. All paper's in these packs work beautifully together, and can be mixed and matched for fun combinations in cards. 
Save the scraps left over from cutting the 6x6 paper to 5x5. As shown in the picture above these scraps can make a perfect embellishment. This is the inside view of the paper bag card. Both sheets of paper came from the Archaic paper pack and were cut to a 5x5 size. I will stamp Happy Father's Day in the inside, but if you do not have stamps print this out on your computer. I love printing on Vellum and using a paper punch to punch out my sentiment.
I tied cord around the card a few times as an embellishment in place of more girly ribbon. 
When completed, slip a pair of Baseball Tickets, a gift card, cash or Daddy's favorite candy in this pouch. Make Dad really smile and make coupon's good for chores he normally is responsible for. Mowing the lawn is a big one at our house (: 

I hope you enjoyed this card on Great Day St. Louis, and were inspired to create some fun and unique cards for your Father! Bookmark my Blog, for more ideas and inspiration.

Life is Tweet in St. Louis!

I am back from vacation and having fun creating again! I also have some exciting news to share with you, so read down. This is one of my favorite little stamp sets for summer, Life Is Sweet. I carry this stamp as well as several other great stamps from Prima Marketing, yes the company that makes our favorite flowers (: The paper comes from Basic Grey's Lime Ricky 6x6 paper pad that I also carry in my online store. I used orange Stickles to boarder my die cut circles. Stickles are the perfect accent to so many projects. I added a clear stickle accent to the birds eye and wing. I also love using feathery fibers on bird cards (: 
I have some VERY exciting "NEWS" to share with you!!!!!!!!!!!! I will be appearing on Great Day St. Louis June 19th!!!!!! I will be demonstrating how to create fun Father's Day cards. I am so very excited for this fun opportunity (: It's very hard to sleep, LOL!
