Walled Lake Central High School Marching Band Scrapbook Layouts

 So you can guess what I have been doing for the last few days hahaha :O) Yes - getting up to date with the marching band photos for Leo. I have used Outdoor Denim cardstock and Sunflower cardstock and paper and ribbon and accessories in the same colors. I then added Indian Corn blue, white and bamboo for accents.
 The middle photo on the right hand page opens and is tied shut using the ribbon and gold photo hangers.
 Dimensional element swirls were colored in with the sunflower markers.
 White grosgrain ribbon added texture.
 I used colonial white waxy flax to stitch through the stickease buttons.
 Lots of buttons!!!

 I dry embossed the Outdoor denim cardstock and then sanded it to expose the white core.
 Both pages had interactive section on them the left hand page has a fold out section which you can see below and was tied closed with ribbon.

The right hand page also had flip flap sections which lifted up.
Hope you like them :O)

Hooligans Halloween goodie bag

This is a fun Halloween party goody bag - I used a regular paper lunch sack and then added black cardstock to the front and back. I then added the Hooligans B&T and cardstock and stamped the Monster from D1437 - Party Animal. I colored him using the matching markers and then Prisma Glittered his tummy :O)
Black organdy ribbon forms the handles.
Hope you like it :O)

Olivia Workshop On The Go - with a twist on the color

This is a card inspired by my good friend Kelly Waterman who made a layout many years ago using fall leaves and these spring colors. It was so pretty and stuck in my head - so when I say the Olivia WOTG stamp set I knew I had to make a card using those same colors, Amethyst, Heavenly Blue, Key Lime and Baby Pink.  It makes a fun spring themed card. I used the piercing tool to make the stitching holes along the left hand side of the ink distressed Amethyst cardstock and used the corner rounder with the guide removed to make the scalloped edge and then used a hole punch in those scallops. The word Delight was stamped in Cocoa ink.
Hope you like it :O)

Hooligans Workshop on the Go Cards

Here are the cute cards made with the Hooligans level 2 paper pack and accessories from the Workshop on the Go
 The bottom 3 cards I made using the Originals and Wishes card confidence programs - again using supplies just from the Workshop on the go kit.
These are perfect birthday cards or invitations or even 'Well Done' cards - perfect to celebrate a good grade, exam result or 'Just because'
Hope you like them :O)

October Stamp of the month - Share The Magic

 So finally - here are my samples of the October stamp of the month. What a cute set - these 1st 2 tags above  were copied unashamedly from Melissa Laverty's blog - they were so stinkin cute I couldn't resist. I love the fact that this set has 'To' and 'From'.
 These 2 3x3 tag cards were fun to make - the snowman has Prisma glitter 'snow' and the new light blue Sparkles for buttons. The reindeer - who has the cutest knees I have ever seen - has a liquid glass nose and prisma glitter on the tree lights above his head.
 On the Santa gate fold card - I went nuts with my sparkly heat embossing again - I added prisma glitter to clear and embossed the candy canes, prisma glitter to silver for his belt buckle, prisma glitter to white for the cuffs and hat and then used liquid applique for his beard. I sliced through the top of the sack and tucked the teddy bear in. I used the Creative Basics Misteltoe paper - pg88 of the new Winter idea book.
 This round card is a birthday card - the present stamp can be used for any occasion - not just Christmas - so I used markers and then paper pieced the ribbon - the paper is from the Perfect Day level 2 kit - my all time favorite - as you know LOL. A tulip button finished it off.The pattern is from Wishes - pg 127 - Side Note.
When I saw the teddy bear stamp I knew it would be absolutely perfect for baby cards so I made these 2 cute tags - using the Topstitch paper and pale pink and pale blue sparkles.White embroidery floss was stitched down the edges.
Hope you like them :O)

Malta album - Extravaganza Artwork

 This is the album which I made using parts of 3 albums. the front cover is from the new Mix & Mingle album and the rest of it is a combination of the Acrylix and Allsorts albums.I still have pages from both left over. Enough to make another :O) I used the Perfect Day paper and matching Stickease and LOTS of sparkles and liquid glass.

 I covered the dimensional element circle with the paper and added liquid glass to the dots on the paper. I dry embossed the horizontal lines into the cocoa cardstock and then sanded them.
 The right hand page features and opening section. It is kept closed with the ribbon.

 I love making the pages interactive. this way I was able to add more photos to the page.

This - I think - is my favorite piece of artwork created for my Extravaganza class at convention. I hope you like it as much as I do :O)  Would love to hear your comments on it :O)

Good morning

and yes I am still having camera issues - good grief - just how difficult is it to find a good camera which takes decent pictures and which is affordable. My apologies to all for my serious lack of blog items - added to which we have had a crazy busy week with Marching Band for Leo - they competed in the band of America Regionals on Saturday - Leo was at school by 8am and we didn't get home from the competition till 12.40am - a very long day !  But give me just a few minutes and I will post some fun artwork :O)

Hello :O)

Hi guys - I am sorry I have been MIA again - I had a major problem with my camera and had to go back to Costco to sort it out. They didn't want to deal with me but needless to say - I won and have a new camera. Now to figure out how to use it - give me a couple of days and I will give you a wonderful post of photos using the new October SOTM :O)
