two new cards

May 21, 2010

I made two new cards today, one is a thank you card with the Elements of Style stamp set and the other is a fun card I made for a swap its made with the Tropical Party stamp set.  The tropical card is a copy of one I saw in this months Stampin Success with a few changes.


A work in progress

May 20, 2010

Since I have been sitting at home this week after unexpected surgery I have found some time to sew again.  I need to get some fabric for stips in between these blocks and for borders but at least the blocks are done.  Unfortunately I don’t think this will be done before I go back to work next week but check back in a few weeks and hopefully there will be more pictures on the progress of this quilt.  🙂

Oh and one more note  I am using fabric by Sweetwater called Make Life…  from the first time I saw the previews I knew I had to have some!

National Scrapbooking Month Travel Album

May 9, 2010

Here are pictures of a 6X6 album that I made as an example for my Scrapbooking event next weekend.   Those of you who are registered for the event but chose to used the Island Oasis DSP you will used the same layouts but with your DSP and cardstock.  Is gonna look great no matter what you went with!

In this picture the bottom left is the title page to the album and bottom right is the end page.

Here are some other pages in random order.  You canfo course put them in an album in whatever order you want.  I noticed that I forgot to ink the edges of all the pages.  Its something that can be skipped but I like the look on the Kraft paper so I will go back and do that.  Also once the pictures get put into this I am sure there will be some new embelishments added.

Here are a couple of mothers day cards I made.  Have been waiting to post these until I gave them out.  So here they are.  I used the new Stampin Up set, Awash with flowers.

Its kind of hard to tell from the pictures since I am looking up at the nest but there are two little babies that I can see.  Here is one of them 🙂

Found outside our front door…..

Something that makes me smile, we noticed this a few days ago in the tree outside our front door.  I wonder how long until the babies hatch?
