Punch Art Kids Cards

Thank you to all those that attended my class this past week. We had a wonderful class, even though I wasn't feeling so well. Here are the cards we created:

This giraffe was a favorite of a class we did in the past.

As an afterthought, I'm going to add Dorothy, Elmo's favorite pet. Will post this card again later.

Shoebox card swap

by my sister, Amber

The Koolau Kroppers met this past weekend and I just had to show you the cards swapped this month. They are the cutest! I did make slight modifications which, in most of the cases, just involved a different base.

Created by Sherri

Created by my mom and Amber

Lastly, I received a belated birthday card from Sherri which I repurposed. Isn't he the cutest! I believe he is one of the critters in Cricut's Create A Critter cartridge.

Thank you for stopping by!

Scrapbooking - A Trip To The Zoo

At some point, instead of telling people, "I'm a scrapper!" I was saying, "I'm a paper-crafter!" When did this happen? I used to be so adamant that I was "first and foremost" a SCRAPPOOKER!!

Look at the posts on this blog. Where are all the layouts! I mean compared to the number of cards . . .

So yesterday I created these and enjoyed it so, so much. The layouts contain my favorites: punch art, paper piecing, pen stitching, cardstock with a little pattern paper . . . and FAMILY! The journaling will be done after this post.

Super simple scrap card

I made this card using leftover scraps from my layout that I posted last week. I pulled out the sewing machine and added the flower. Stamps and cardstock is CTMH. Patterned paper is Autumn Leaves.
For another card made using the same scrap paper, check out my other blog my-crazy-never-still-life. Enjoy!

LO Share

I got to crop this weekend so wanted to share a layout that I made. My dd wanted me to take photos of the group that went to the homecoming dance. I loved the papers and the way it turned out.

Mojo Monday Card - Thank you

Created some much needed Thank You Cards off of Karen's Mojo Monday Sketch. The base is some blank purchased cards, nesti circle and scallop die, QK Flower die, TLC Rubons and brown ribbon.

I could have double matted the Thank You part but got lazy.

Quick and Easy!!
