Cards etc.

I've been working on cards lately. Made a few for friends and more for other purposes. Here are a couple I made lately. I missed taking some pictures of completed ones before I gave them to people. Opps!

I also got the We R Memory Keeper's Envelope Punch Board. I've only made a handful of envelopes so far but I love this board!! I love the look of the handmade envelopes. The hardest thing I've had using it is the scoring of the line. I sometimes get the line off from the track it gives you. I am getting better with practice though. 

This card I used the punch board for the envelope and the card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest using a monochromatic theme. 

This card I used my envelope punch board and my Sizzix Owl #2 die. I've been having fun with my owls!

This owl I used the Sizzix Owl #2 die again. I also used the Mickey Mouse Cuttlebug Out West cut and emboss die for the star and hat. To cute! I'll be playing more with making the owl dressed up cute.

I added a card base to him and made a matching envelope to go with.

More fun with the owl die, I made this princess owl. Sophia picked out all of the colors. It matches her dress from today!

Baby Paper Bag Album #2

I scrapped! I know what you are thinking, it's a miracle! Pretty much. I made this for my kids art teacher that is going to be having a baby this summer. I always have fun making these types of albums.  Thanks for looking.

I did use a lot of swap items on this album which helped me finish it in time for the last day of school today!

Lego Juice Boxes

Kinda scrappy???

Well, it has been forever since I did any traditional scrapbooking. I've tried to stay a little crafty at least and I've been busy getting ready for two of my kids birthday parties. My son's is themed Star Wars Legos. Here are the juice boxes that I've decorated for the party. I don't have a lot to do for it since it's at a indoor play place and all we're doing is pizza and cupcakes. At least I have this little bit of crafty fun!

I made these with regular cardstock. 8 1/2 x 11. I cut the wraps down to 4 x 8 and then punched the dots out of the extra. I added the dots with pop dots and inked them slightly for shadow effect. I think they turned out super cute!

School's Out Gifts etc.

I know it's been forever since I've posted any work. I've been super busy and actually packed up most of my stuff in order to move my room for my daughter. I'm working on unpacking still and was able to do a few things for year end gifts. Here are the things I worked on as school got out this year.

For teacher gifts I made pencil & highlighter flower bouquets. My daughter has two classroom teachers so each got a set. The tag with it my daughter wrote: Thank you for helping me grow.

Next my daughter had two group leaders at her after school program. I made them each mini clipboards. This was the first time for me to make mini ones and I loved how they turned out! 





Last I made a card (well actually I made several cards but only took a picture of one of them). It was for a graduate student at my work. I love the owl die. It's from Cottage Cutz. It was the first time I've use the die. I had a lot of fun playing with it. The inside of the card was stamped  along with the envelope. Inside: "We are all so proud of you!"

Sad to say not much in the 'scrapbook' progress but at least I've been crafty!!
