Gift card holders and card.

Here is a fun little project which we made at the last stamp camp in May - the flap tucked under the panel with the saying on it.
There were 2 'pockets' - one for the gift card and the one behind it was for the 3x3 card.
Hope you like it :O)

Canvas mini album

Here is a mini album which was partly made from a kit from Quick Quotes, It included the ribbons and embellishments but then I swapped out the cardstock and paper for Close To My Heart items :O)
This is the back of the album and shows Me, Dana and LisaMarie. I used the stamp set which we were given for attending Convention and it features the logos used throughout Convention.
I used some of the new Olivia paper to decorate the pages of the album. I love the way it turned out. I dry embossed and then sanded the panel at the bottom of the 4th page.
Hope you like it too :O)

Brothers single page layout.

I loved this single page layout I made - perfect for out CTMH clipboard - I used the Aspen paper and then instead of a single photo mat - I added a fold out flap - like a mini book - so that I could add another photo inside.
I used the rub on letters for the lettering on the photo.
Hope you like it :O)

Snow Much Fun :O)

Here is a double layout I made using the Aspen paper:
I used the liquid applique to outline the letters. I used the yellow embroidery floss to stitch over the snowflakes on the B&T and added gold brads to the tips. I also stitched the ribbon to the page with the same embroidery floss and also wrapped it around the small photo double layer. I took the 'loop' ends off the photo hangers and just used the end pieces to anchor the ends of the ribbon.
Hope you like it :O)

Snow Angel

Here is a 6x6 panel I made to fit onto a page using the Aspen level 2 paper pack.
The panel was interactive with a lift up panel showing the 2nd photo and then opened like a boox to show the hidden journalling.
Hope you like it :O)

Here is another card made with the July SOTM - it is based on an idea that Vicki Wizniuk had - her card was so stinkin cute that I had to have a go and create4 a similar one. I wanted it to look like the Hedgehog was walking along a path and flying his kite over a hedge.
Hope you like it :O)

Notebook 6x6 memory showcase album

Here is the 6x6 memory showcase album which I made for my room-mates and friends as a Convention Gift. I used the notebook level 2 paper pack & stickease and the coffee stain stamp set that matches it - love that set! I added ribbon and filigree charms and 'Big Pinks' paper flowers for BLING :O)
I folded the inside pages at 3" so that it made 4 3x6 panels. Then attached 4x6 to the front side of the fold and 2x6 to the back side of the fold. Hope that makes some sort of sense - if you look at the photos you will see :O)
Here is the other side of the 'fold' where the 2x6  gets attached.
I used Stazon black ink to color the filigree charms.
The black embellishment behind the quote is actually a colonial white decorative brad which I have rubbed into the Stazon black ink to make a black decorative brad :O)

Robyn's 200 Graduation 3 Ring Binder

Here is one of the items which I made for my Extravaganza class at Convention earlier this month. I started with the 3 ring binder and then I used the Notebook Level 2 paper pack & stickease - one of my favorites - and then added lots of 'Bling" in the form of pearl paint, liquid glass, sparkles and CTMH's beautiful satin egded ribbon.
I tinted the paint using just a few drops of the Holly hock re-inker to give this lovely soft pink. The filigree charms helped hold the ribbon in place.
Here I added a top coat for added shine and painted the tiny flowers with the same paint as the Dimensional element numbers - then added a sparkle to the center.
I added baby pink edge anchors and also used the hollyhock accessories from the Autumn garden mini medley.
More sparkles for fun and I added liquid glass to the stickease to add more shine.
Again - lots of sparkles and I painted the dimensional element heart with the tinted pearl paint.

I doubled up the flowers on the 'Brothers' page and added the corduroy brad to the center of the satin edge ribbon.  On the Memory page I pleated the ribbon under the dimensional element heart and added sparkles and then liquid glass to cover the stickease then added it to the center of the flower
More sparkles on the stickease and Filigree charm in the center of the doubled paper flowers.

July class project

So just how stinkin' cute is this little hedgehog - I love him. From his little pink ears to the fun paper pieced balloons in his hands. And how about those fun butterflies and hearts. Organdy ribbon adds a shimmering finishing touch.

'You Rock' circular card

Here is a fun card - just to say hello or even a a birthday card - for a boy or for a girl. I started with the circular clear card then use the You Rock level 2 paper pack. I added rub on glitter stars and the Glitz glitter gelto cover a dimensional element star and the center of the stickease. White organdy ribbon - with its lovely shimmer - added the final touch
Hope you like it :O)

Sticky Boy

So many of my customers today were fascinated by Sticky Boy - the little acrylic stamp inside my name badge. SO this is how you get one. Only consultants can find him at corporate events - we can't buy him :O( The corporate staff hide him around the area our classes are in - on windows and mirrors - on tables and staircases - anywhere he will stick and we try to find him. Youknow when he has been found as there is a huge scream from the consultant with sticky boy in her hands. There are abou 4 different sizes - and yes I have 3 of those - still looking for the little itty bitty one.

He was a prototype acrylic stamp when CTMH decided to go from wood mounted stamps to clear blocks and stamps (and aren't we soooooo happy they made that decision - Thank you Jeanette xx) so they did everything they could to prove he was durable and would last.

I will try to make some artwork featuring him in the next few weeks LOL

So 'click' on the title of this post and I hope you enjoy the link :O)
