Baby Bookmark

A couple of months we created a bookmark for our tea swap.

Here's my baby bookmark. The bookmark and a baby care book are gifts for a co-worker who is retiring to babysit her first grandchild.

Here is my prototype of an upcoming class scheduled next month.  Please note that the paper, rustic and artsy look was just me, having some fun.

We will be making an accordion album with a magnetic closure for July's class.  The album has 8 pockets and will include some tags for the pockets.

Heads up, we will be using 5 x 7 Kraft envelopes and, if you want to get some for yourself ahead of time, here it is.  What a deal to get 50 sets for $10!!  We will use some of the inserts for the tabs. From one pack, you can create 6 more of these!!  You could use the file as a card organizer!

As soon as I get the paper and make the sample for class, I'll post back!

With deepest sympathy

Saw a great card on Pinterest by Susan Raihala (Simplicity).  She is one of my favorite card makers online.  I love her simple yet elegant style.  The card I saw had one floral image and sentiment stamped in grey.  Matted in the same color, and placed on a white base.  Here's my scraplift of the card.  Simple, elegant and quick.  Stamp by SU called Thoughts and Prayers.  Sentiment by Stampettes, a local stamp company.

Three step card

A while ago, I created a 3 Step card.  Here's another one. The images are from Hero Arts Be Happy as well as a Quickutz sun die and Memory Box clouds die.

The last time I made this card, someone wanted to know the scoring and cutting measurements. I finally had time to create a template and you can find it here. The finished card is an A2 size.

Thank you for stopping by!!

Masculine cards - sneak peek

Another masculine card similar to the one I posted previously, except I used a flip fold and it is a gift card. If you are a beginner card maker, there are a few basic supplies you should add to your collection. The first, of course, are the basic all occasion stamps like "Thank you", "Happy Birthday", "With Sympathy", and "Just a Note". Next, keep an eye out for a few basic "all occasion" images or embellishments, like a birthday cake, balloons, flowers and something masculine like this stamp that I found at a garage sale for only a buck!
