Cute Birthday Card Using DiGi Stamp

Hi everyone.  Well it's been a while.  My husband and I have been putting in new laminate flooring in our house.  So far we have done the family room living room and my craft room (second bedroom).  Everything has been topsy turvy.  We are doing it ourselves.  Imagine a 71 and 77 year old laying floors.  Gives you a real sense of accomplishment when done but oh my..................
Today I made a birthday card for a golfer friend using a digi stamp I have had for quite a while.  It is a bugaboo stamp.  It was colored using bic markers.  Enjoy

Wedding Album for Katia


Well Hi All.
Gosh I have not been very good at keeping up the blog even though I have been crafting away.  I put my videos up and never get the information over to the blog................shame!
Today I am sharing a wedding album I made for a young lady who waitresses in the restaurant here in our development. The paper line I used is from Paper House called I Do.  I find it a little dark for my taste, so I lightened it up with some pale pink.  The book is 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 with 8x8 pages.  The spine is 2/1/2.  Most all of the embellishments I already had with the exception of some Jolee blings.
Hope you like it.

Let's Make A Valentine





Hi everyone.  Time sure does fly.  I have been rearranging my craft space and trying to get my stamps organized.  Most of my stamps are the older wood mounted rubber stamps and when I moved here I put them all in plastic bins labeled etc.  But........out of site out of mind.  So now I am getting them organized on shelving so I can actually see what I have.
While I was dusting off the stamps I decided to make a quick Valentine Card.  I found a cute heart stamp that says I Love You Beary Much.  (Stampin-Up circa 1995!!!!)
There is a teddy bear also but I decided to use a Cricut cut from Create a Critter.  I think it turned out cute.         
 
Designer paper from Colorboc Hootenanny 6x6 pad.  Card is A2 and all layers are 1/4 inch smaller.
I folder the bears paws around the hear to make it appear that he is holding it..
I don't have any small grandchildren to send Valentine's Cards to so I don't usually make too many, just my husband and sisters.

Ok onwards and upwards......I have a wedding album to make for a March wedding.  I will be sharing the process with you all.  Stay tuned........................
