12x12 scrap page

Hello all. It has been some time since my last post. No excuses really, just lazyness I guess. I have done some projects, just not posting much.
Be that as it may, today I'm sharing a layout that I did for a co-worker not long ago.
Sorry, but I didn't keep track of what I used in this layout. All I know is I used what I had in my stash so it gets used up so I can go out and buy some new ``stuff```. I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by.
Hope you have a great day!

happy mother's day ♥

today i'm sharing the project that i made for my dear mom for mother's day. because i was quickly running out of time to make a gift and have it arrive in time for mother's day, i opted for something quick and easy. this is what i came up with.


for this i used some CTMH papers, the Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge, and some Prima flowers i had layin around. the butterfly is a stamp that i embossed and cut out. i also used Prima leaves, some flowers i had in my stash, some lace and i made a pin with some colored pearls. the punch i used on the left edge is a Martha Stewart punch. around the edge i used some Tim Holtz crackle paint to hide the edges as i attached the project to some heavy chip board and the edges were visible. i'm entering this in the Fantabulous Cricut monday challenge.
i hope every mother out there has a very special mother's day, and thanks so much for stopping by today.

bliss

hello to you. today i wanted to share a little project i created using layers on a scrapbook page. i haven't made a 12x12 page in ages. it was lots of fun once i got into the grove again. usually i'm a little intimidated by all that space on a 12x12 page, but not this time. after scouring the internet for inspiration i set to work and this is the result. i used some CTMH papers that i recently purchased as well as what i had in my stash that i thought went with them. i spritzed, masked and layered until i was happy with the result.


here are a few close-ups







thanks for stopping by today and taking a look.

on your special day

Hello all. Well my plan to blog more frequently is not going exactly as I had planned. I have been crafting but finding the time to put those projects on my blog has proven to be an issue. Be that as it may, I found some spare time to share this card I made for my sister for her Birthday. This was just a basic card that I was able to triplicate (is that a word?) very easily. Unfortunately I can't recall where I found the inspiration for this, but  I think I got it from Creations with Christina
I created this from my scraps I had laying around and the butterfly is from Recollections.


Thanks for dropping in today and happy crafting.

A wedding card

       While browsing my favorite blogs I found thing lovely wedding card tutorial and decided that I would make it. ( I need to start making some cards in advance instead of waiting till I need one to create one.) It was quick and simple and I was able to make it in the time frame I had before going to my everyday grind..work.
       You can find the tutorial here on youtube. Because I don't have a recipient to give it to yet, I created the card in black and white instead of the bride's colors. Now when I am in need of a wedding card, I have one ready to go.

You'll have to excuse the poor quality photo. I need to set up some sort of area in my room for picture taking. In any event, thanks for stopping by today. Have a fabulous day.

I really like how it turned out

Amazing Memories Mother's Day Gift

Hello all. I got a chance to sit down and blog a little so I wanted to share the mini I made for my mom. I made this one as a gate fold mini. It was totally fun to make and I will be doing another one of these again.
I used a piece od transparency over the cover and embossed it with a stamp set from Inkadinkadoo. The stickers are from my stash.

For the inside cover I used some netting, shells, glass rocks and a pin I made. The seaweed is a die cut I had in my stash before I discovered the cricut.
Here I used some chipboard shells and a fish from K&Company, some more netting (I love how this looked in the mini) and the title is from Graphicly Speaking.

Here I used more chipboard shells and more embossing. The swirls where done with perfect pearls powder.
More netting and embossing. The paper I used  was mostly fro mK&Company as well as My Minds Eye. The bling is some that I had in my stash.
On this page I decided to use some Distress Crackle paint from Tim Holtz and painted the edges of the page. I added some Jolee's stickers.
Here I added some more stickers and cut out some seaweed which I dry embossed to add some texture. The seaweed is fom Life's a Beach cartridge.
I think at this point I was running out of creative ideas.
I just realized that I forgot to take a picture of the tag that is on this page. My bad!
Here you can see I got some creative inspiration back. LOL
I hope you enjoyed looking at my project today and maybe even got inspired a little. Thanks for stopping by.

Another Birthday gift, and another first for me.

Hello all. I finally get to share another Birthday gift that I have made for my friend and neighbour today. It is a mini I made of her favorite horse, and I decided to make it with acrylic. This is my first attempt at an acrylic  mini album and I must say I was pretty intimidated by it. It was a blast to create and I'm happy with the way it turned out. There are only a couple of cricut cuts in this mini and I can't even remember the cartridge that I used. My bad. I'm really bad at remembering to write down what items and what cartridges I used.  Anyways...I hope you enjoy .

                                                 The front cover...I love this picture.

                                                                   the second page
                                                              the third page


                                                                    fourth page


                                                         fifth page.....my favorite

                                      sixth page..the flowers are ones I made, another first for me


                                          seventh page....I had a creative block with this one


                                          eighth page. I used a waterfall technique on this page so I was able to add        more  pictures to the book.


                                                              and the last page.

Thanks for stopping by today. Check back in a couple of days to see what I made for my mom for Mother's Day.
