Three more projects I just had to share...

I saw this card on Face Book, posted by Impress Rubber Stamps.  I pretty much copied it, using the Stamping Up! Scallop border punch and embossing it with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder, to make it "mine."  I textured the background with a sponge and Spellbinder stencil.

My daughter, Melissa has a gift for yarn crafting.  This is her basic baby gift.  I think I'd like a hat in my size:)
And lastly, Timmy, my six year old LOVES AWANA Sparks.  He has zoomed through his book, review and now is working on the extra book.  He decided his precious Muffin needed a Spark's vest to match his, this is what we came up with today.  Ya gotta love felt and FabriTac for these type of projects!
I'm not sure if you can see it, but there's a badge made out of Sculpy and seed beads there.

Baby Gifts

Welcoming babies is one of my favorite things to do.  I really enjoy making personalized, layouts that I can frame.  I think I scrapbook better if it's in a frame.  Here are a couple of projects that I did for one friend.  The first one, I did cold turkey, not knowing the "theme" of the babies room.  The second one I was given a heads up on the rain forest theme.  After doing the first one, almost eighteen months ago, I've added using my Cricut to the mix, but I wanted to keep these in a similar style, so used it sparingly.  The click art is from 

Here's the first one...

and the second...

Heather...if you see this before your shower, please act surprised :)


I've enjoyed making these signs for wedding gifts.  This is one I was commissioned to do with this cool red frame.  It proved to be a little bit more challenging because of the length and the narrowness.  I took a different direction than usual.  Overall, I think I like it.

Here is how I joined the paper together and a better glimpse of the texture.

I used Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) for cutting the name and a combination of Photoshop and Make the Cut (MTC) for the hearts.  All images were then cut on my Cricut.  The background is textured using the Swiss Dots folder with the Cuttlebug and the Flourish stencil from Spellbinders.

Here is an original name plaque.
