My DH's Birthday Card

Hello Everyone,

Today is my DH birthday, and I made this Book Card and Gift Box for him. You can find the tutorial for making this card here.

Side View Of The Book Card
Here's the gift box.  I have a question. Have ever had this happen to you, or something simular. You've worked on a project for over a week, or just worked hard on a project. You finally get it completed. You look at your work and admire how well it turned out. Suddenly you realize something is missing. If not, I just experienced that moment. I was looking at over a week's worth of work, and I realized, my DH birthday card doesn't say Happy Birthday anywhere on it or in it. I'm looking at it thinking "Are You Serious?" Now I have to think of a way to add a tag or something that says Happy Birthday without it looking like an after thought. So here's my solution...LOL...

I wonder if my DH will notice........  BTW...He absolutely LOVES his card.

Tuesday Trigger - Luminous Layers

Hello Everyone,

Today I have a card for your. This card will be entered into the Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger: Luminous Layers. Here's this week's Trigger.

Isn't this dress fabulous? I love all the different patterns and colors. Here's my take on the inspiration photo.

I punched several circles from different patterned papers, and inked the edges with brown chalk ink. I then mounted the circles on brown cardstock, trimmed the edges and added ribbon to the bottom. I stamped the sentiment on some pearl white cardstock and glued the sentiment to the bottom.

Well that's it for me. Have a fabulous day, and I'll blog with you later...

eclectic Challenge: Your a Good Egg.

Hello Everyone,

I'm entering the eclectic Challenge: Your A Good Egg, so I have another posting for you today. For this challenge we are to create a project using the following items:
  1. Distress Inks (could be a combination of Distress Ink Pads or Distress Stains)
  2. Any kind of die (could be Spellbinders, Sizzix, Cuttlebug, Circuit, etc...)
  3. and an EGG CARTON - incorporate into your project somehow. You could flatten it out, cut it up, or use it as a surface.
So I made a this little frame. 

The entire frame was made by die cutting cardboard using my Grand Nesties. I used Distress Inks on the frames edges and the flowers. I sprayed the flowers with gold and silver glimmer mist to give them a little shine.
Here's the Egg Carton. 

I die cut the shape out of a egg carton, painted with black and white paint, and stamped a sentiment in the middle.  I think will will place the frame in a shadow box, and give to my friend.. Here's a close up of the sentiment. It was stamped using distress ink.

Well that's it for me. Have a fabulous day and I'll blog with you later.

JustRite Challenge 056 - A Shaped Christmas Card

Hello Everyone,

FYI....The JustRite Weekly Challenges have started again.

I have a card that will be entered the JustRite Challenge 056.  For this challenge we have to create a shaped Christmas card or tag. So I decided to make a shaped Christmas card using my Grand Nesties.
I made the flower using a tutorial I found here, and I used some glitter glue on the tips to give it a little sparkle.  For the center of the flower, I created a brad (with the i-top tool) using the same background paper as the card. I color the image with Copics and layered it on a doily (of course). 

Well, that's all for me, I need to finish my DH's birthday card... Have a fabulous day, and I'll blog with you later

A Perfect Day - A Scrapbook Page

Hello Everyone,

Today I have another scrapbook LO for your viewing. I'm entering this into the Once Upon A......Sketch August 1st Challenge.   The theme of this challenge is "A Perfect Day". For this challenge, I did another graduation lo, but using brighter colors.  Believe it, or not, I didn't use a doily in this LO.  Here's the sketch.
I just love this sketch. So simple, yet so elegant. Here's my LO.
I didn't use any special techniques on the page. But I did use some new embellishments I recently purchased (rhinestone circle), and some I won (the pins)... All of the colors that were used on this LO were taken from the photo, down to the pearl necklace I was wearing. 
The pearl pins I won on Becca Feeken's blog, aren't they beautiful. She is such a talented lady. The mini roses are made from a die I just purchased. I think their tiny sizes are just too cute.
My journaling says:

May 11, 2001. 
A Perfect Day is seeing a dream become a reality.  It took me quiet some time to finally graduate from college.  Life has a way of stepping in and altering you plans.  But I never gave up on my dream of earning a college degree. And I finally did it!!! It was A Perfect Day.

Well that's if for me. Have a fabulous day and I'll blog with you later.
