Father's Day Photo Frame Card

Party guests loved making this Father's Day Photo Frame Cards this last weeked.  I used "Wonderful Friend" Stamp set (June Stamp of the Month) with Indian Corn Blue and Desert Sand ink, itty bitty antiqued copper brads and CTMH's "Free Spirit" Paper. 

Another Fun Splendor Paper Card Design

Here's another fun card I made using Splendor Level 2 Paper Packet, a fun flower from Irresistibles Pizzazz chipboard die-cuts (inked in Goldrush) and "Cherish" stamp set (garden green ink). The stem and leaves are cardstock and I used CTMH's dry embossing/scoring stylus for the leaf design and sanded over embossing marks with my cute CTMH sanding block.

Loving this Splendor Paper!

The pattern of the CTMH's Splendor Background & Texture paper is so beautiful and versatile to use for cards.  Take a look at this cute card I made using the paper, Designer Brads, Stem from "Follow Your Heart" stamp set, Thanks from "Flower Pot" stamp set, and flower made using circle punch, bone folder, and coordinating Splendor paper for the cool looking 3-D flower.  Inks used are topiary and goldrush. Love it!!

Take a look at this fun photo card that one of my June Home Gatherings will be putting together to celebrate the beginning of summer.  It came out so cute using CTMH's Splendor Level 2 Paper Packet,  A Flitter stamp set, Cocktail Alphabet, creme brulee ribbon, and itty bitty sparkles with moonstruck and topiary inks.. The flower is made punching five scalloped circles, putting a brad in the middle and spritzing water on each layer (except for last one which will serve as base), then crumpling each one for the flower look. Leaves are made with a circle punch and then putting circle back in punch halfway. Use bone folder to make leaf definition, spritz with water and crumple slightly.  Adorable and easy!

Fun Binder Project

My Brownie girls are scrapbooking this adorable binder for their Hobbies & Scrapbooking Try Its. My assistant leader and I picked individual pictures for each of our sixteen girl's books so it would be their own memories. After one Brownie meeting, we are halfway through and will finish at our next one.  So great seeing each of these girls so engrossed and enthusiastic about this project!

Here's one of the ten pages I created using CTMH's "Boom-di-ada" Level 1 paper packets and fun coordinating embellishments!

Fun Frame for Teacher Appreciation Day

I was so happy with this fun frames I made using CTMH's "Veranda" Level 2 paper for one of my daughter Haley's 3rd grade teachers. She loved signing the inside of the frame with her special "thanks" for each one.
