I love my saggy lady stamps!

My friend in Florida asked if I would make her a birthday card for her mom with my saggy ladies. I never pass up an opportunity to use my saggy ladies! I used a template found here for the card. My saggy ladies are from Ibreakforstamps. I used just some blue cardstock and some green paper from my scrap stash. I got the paper at Altered Art and Playground last summer but don't remember the line. I stickeled the little lady and colored with colored pencils. I added a little flower at the top too that I also got at Altered Art awhile back. I don't keep packages so again, no clue who it's by. Sorry!

Finally back in crafting mode

I think I had hit a creative brick wall there for awhile cuz I just wasn't doing any scrapping at all. Couldn't even get the excitement to do a project. But I think I'm slowly getting back into it. Here are a few swaps I have just finished that need to be mailed.

1st is the dessert for my Italian swap, it's for Peach Gelato. I used some paper from some paper packs from Hobby Lobby and a Prima from Bucket of Blooms, a faux eyelet from Joann's and a little baby pearl. I also stamped a diamond background in Versa Mark Champagine on the solid paper but it's really hard to see.

2nd is my main dish for the italian swap. I just used cardstock and some bling. very simple. I also stamped some paint splashs in the background in Vera Mark champaigne as well.

3rd is one of the spots in a drink swap. This is for Summer Fruit Punch. The paper is cartstock and a pack of summer drink paper in Target's $1.00 section. The ribbon is also from Targets $1.00 bin. I stamed the Too Cool and added stickles to the limes.

Last is a Salty Chihuahua drink. I stamped all the paws on the cardstock and cut the little dog from Animal Kingdom. I added some glitter to his head and back to look like salt.

Happy Birthday Old Man

A friend of mine is having a birthday soon so this is the card I made for him. I used the Humorous Senior stamps from and used water color pencil with a blender pen. The paper is some from my scrap bin from Creative Imaginations. I threw a little $1.00 bling from Michael's on there as well. The inside of the card reads: "At your age, Happy Hour is a nap. Happy Birthday"

And here's the rest of the story...or at least the layouts.

I had a few more layouts to post that I didn't post last night so here we go...

1st up is another NKOTB layout from the Orlando Concert. The paper is Making Memories, the shiny paper is a stack from Walmart and the embelies are JoLee's. The 2nd picture sucks because it doesn't show the paper design. The lettering is Alphalicious. The pictures are of Joey McIntyre who has that Frank Sinatra montra about him.

Next up is a layout that is missing some cricut cuts on the 2nd page. I plan on doing a boarder at the top of the page with the same glasses that are on the 1st page. Maybe some journaling on the glasses. The pics are Cami & I at UNO's in Orlando have some wonderful Margaritas. The paper is by Flair and the cut is designed by me on Cricut Design Studio using Alphalicious, George and Cuttin Up.

FINALLY an update

It's been brought to my attention time and time again that I haven't updated my blog so for all you eagerly awaiting, here are some of my recent creations. Some are missing pictures and some are missing cricut cuts because apparently lately when I go to scrap retrats I like to forget things.

1st is a layout I did for my high school band teacher who is retiring this year. His daughter is putting together a scrapbook for his retirement. Cobbler paper is by Stamping Station and the Marching Band paper is by Reminisce, embellies by JoLee's.

Next up is a layout I put together at retreat awhile ago. It's from our Orlando pictures in front of Ron Jon Surf Shop. Paper is some I picked up at Altered Art & Scrap Playground. I also used some cardstock in my stash. I used Graphically Speaking for he surf board cut and wording.

Next is one of my favorite layouts that I've done in a LONG time. It's a layout of Donnie from my 2nd New Kids concert. Title says "I Fell For The Boy From The City" cut out of Tear Drop and the cityscape cut from Plantin Schoolbook. The paper is from Creative Memories, Make A Wish line. Card stock is from my stash. This would be one of the layouts missing pictures on the 2nd page.
I have a few more layouts but we'll save those for tomorrow so that it looks like I'm doing more updating then I really have to do. :) Thanks for looking!
