Life is Good - A Birthday Card


Today I finished a Birthday card for my MIL. I used a sketch from the Feb 14th Sketch Assignment at Swirlydoos.  For this assignment we were to use the following sketch, make a handmade flower and use deco scissors. Here's my take to the assignment.

Here's the sketch.

I used felt to create my flowers, and deco scissors on the smaller background paper.

Today, I wanted to share with you another project I created during the Swirlydoos Swirl-a-Poolza Crop that was on Feb 18th. The DT created a lot of wonderful tutorials and here's one of the projects I made.  It's a Blending Foam Storage Binder and you can find there video tutorials here.
Here's the inside
The inside will hold all my Tim Holtz's blending sponges (eventually). I glues small pieces of Velcro the hold the sponges in place.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a fabulous day, and I'll blog with you later.

I Heart U - Valentine's Day Card


Okay, I'm back with a Valentine's Day Card for my DH. I designed it to kinda match the scrapbook LO I previously posted. I used papers from the Swirlydoos' September 2011 kit - Rendezvous and the Feb 6th Card Color Assignment to make this V-Day card.

The background was created using a emboss resisted technique. I stamped the image on to a plain piece of white cardstock with a watermark stamp pad. Sprinkled embossing powder over the the stamped images, and heat set. I then sponged distress ink over the entire page, and wiped off the embossed area with a towel. The flower is handmade using paper from the kit. This was my first time trying this technique, and I do like the way it turned out. I hope my DH will like too. Well that's all I have for you today. Happy Valentine's Day to you and yours. Have a fabulous day, and I'll blog with you again later.

So You - Swirlydoos Mystical Winter Sketch Challenge

Hello Everyone,

Today I have another scrapbook layout for you. I'm entering this one into the Swirlydoos Mystal Winter Sketch Challenge.  I mentioned in a previous post, I'm trying to come out of my conservative box, so I'm trying different techniques and materials. Well today I'm actually using premade flowers and deep distressing. Without further ado, here's my take on the sketch..

Here's the sketch

The materials used on this layout are from the Swirlydoo January 2012 Kit. This kit is full of winter scrapping goodness. Unfortunately, I live in Daytona Beach Florida and I don't have any winter or snow pic, but I was still able to use this kit with some pics of my son at the beach.
This is a close up of the flowers.

Close up of the title

Well that's all for me. I hope that you enjoyed this layout. I had fun creating it. I will be back real soon with some cards. I have a lot of card making events coming up. Have a Fabulous Day, and I'll blog with you later.
