Happy Birthday baby!!!

Happy Birthday Baby!!!

My husband celebrated his 67th birthday July 1st - so of course I had to make a card!!!
For this card I used Pip Art's Follow the Stars Home Stamp and my Misti.  I will say colouring a stamp is a new venture for me.  I used my Zig Pens (yes I still have these and love them)!!
Once the stamp was coloured, I cut it out, mounted it on some scraps of barn board paper I had  in my stash and poof Birthday Card done.  I am very pleased with how this card turned out especially as I have never stamped anything and added colour to it prior to this card.  As always, I got my stamp from my favorite scrapbook store - Aall Scrapbook Essentials in Kamloops, BC or online at aallscrapbookessentials.com

Happy crafting!!! By for now, until we meet again.

The Scrap Hovel

Good morning everyone!!!  Today I wanted to show my craft room or Scrap Hovel as I like to call it.  This is my sanctuary.  It is not a huge a space but it works for me and I wanted to share as I love seeing other craft spaces.  Have a great day and I look forward to seeing your comments.

Love Notes

Hello everyone!!!

I just wanted to share a few pictures of the anniversary present I made my husband - we have been together 32 years and simply put I love that boy.  I was very touched when my husband shared pictures of his gift on Facebook - the comments and outpouring from everyone have been amazing.

For this project I used a Graphic 45 Travel Journal, the Graphic 45 Love Notes collection, the Love Notes solids and patterns as well as the journaling cards, chipboard and stickers.  All of this was transformed into the anniversary present below, full of love notes, memories and our story over the last 32 years.  I hope you enjoy it.

This is our story - more than 60 pages of why I love my husband and our incredible journey together.

When my husband posted this on Facebook he stated that it made him cry.  He never ceases to amaze me.

Something for mom

Hello everyone.  Here is a card I made for my mom using Echo Park's I Am Mom Collection pack, coordinating solids and ephemera.  I really love how this card turned out and enjoyed making it.  I know my mom is going to love it.

When you have no plan...

As many of you know, I like to create with just a vague plan - that way I am always surprised in how things turn out.  For this project all I have decided on is the paper.  I am using Graphic 45's A Perfect Gentleman Deluxe Collectors Edition.  After that sky is the limit. 

So what does it mean to start a project with no plan?  Often it can mean cutting, scoring, recutting and so on.  Is this how things have started with this project?  You bet and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Here is a glimpse at the beginning.  I will post more as the project progresses.

Good morning everyone!!!  Just a quick update to my last post showing the travel album and steamer trunk I built using Graphic 45 City Scapes and Tropical Travelogue collections. 
Well, I can now share with you that they are in their new home - with the beautiful bride-to-be Brittany.  Her sister threw her a travel themed shower so I thought these would be more than fitting - I must say Brit loved them!!!

So glad she liked them - I certainly enjoyed making them!!!

Hello everyone here is the start of my latest project using a Graphic 45 Square tag and pocket album as well as the Tropical Travelogue, City Scapes and Penny's Paper Dolls Family collections.  I decided to change things up, turn the album into a suitcase and build a little steamer trunk to go with it.
This was a very fun project.  The only plan I had was the products I was using, after that, it was simply whatever my creative brain came up with.  I must say I have the most fun when I just start sticking stuff down and just let the process happen.  One of these days I may plan a project out start to finish....or not...
So here is a quick video of the finished project - I hope you enjoy it.  I look forward to seeing your comments.  Happy crafting!!!!
