Card share

I have started making cards from scraps from LOs.  This is one of the five cards I made along with the layout posted yesterday from the scrap kit from Scrappin Savvy.     I'm in love with banners at the moment.
Enjoy!  Karen

LO Share

Senior photos of my dd.   I got a scrap kit from my favority local scrapbook store Scrappn Savvy.   Basically, I think Karrie makes the scrap kits from left-over materials from classes or make-n-takes.  She bundles up some scraps of cardstock, patterned paper and some fun embellishments -- all of $2-3.   I made this layout and five cards (at least one will be posted) from one of those scrap kits, plus half sheet of patterned paper and cardstock base for my layout and some of my cards.   And I have a ton of canvas embellishments left!   Great deal, Karrie!
Enjoy!  Karen

SU Pocket Silhouettes

I've been enjoying my birthday presents and haven't been creating! Today I thought I'd clean up the desk and get these extra pieces off my desk.

I recently got coerced into joining a Stampin Up swap where we had to use current SU products, with a very short deadline. I have very little current SU products but recently acquired this Pocket Silhouettes stamp set.

Since I enjoy my monthly tea swap, I decided on creating a tea bag holder.

With the left over after the swap, I created a couple of cards.

that held 2 little matching 2" gift tags.

Credit for the design goes to D. Griffin for the above 3x3 card I received in a 3x3 swap this past October. Isn't it beautiful!

Follow your heart

For my birthday I received these beautiful Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three and used one of them on this card for my tea swap partner Jan T. The swap theme is Valentine's Day in colors pink and red but, as you can see, I didn't follow it. Hope Jan doesn't mind. I decided to use left over paper and stickers from my love class.

LO Share - princess

She thinks she's a princess.  My dd actually saved her money and bought this dress herself (cuz there was no way I was spending this much on a prom dress).  She was so excited and she does look like a princess.  And I'm happy to say two years later (yeah, takes me a while to scrap the photos), she has worn it to another event and a friend has worn it also.
Enjoy!  Karen
