Dakota Birthday card

Rather than laundry or grocery shopping, both of which needed doing, I worked on this card yesterday for a swap I’m doing.

I paired the new Dakota papers with this woodgrain background and the hounds tooth checks and bandana paisley with an old paper from Pemberley, used as the “handkerchief” in the pocket. I love the new pocket stamp set, “Rugged Dude“.   I stamped “Hip Hooray” on the pocket and inside, “It’s Your Birthday!”    It’s always good to have masculine birthday cards on hand….  Hope you like the card and thanks for looking 🙂

Ever try Digital?

If you’re like me, you are at least a full year behind on scrapbooking. Life flows by faster than I can find time to document it! I end up just skipping a chunk of time and picking back up with the present, promising myself to go back and fill in the gaps when I get spare time. Hah!

CTMH has come out with an awesome way to catch up on those scrapbook pages, super fast and easy! … the new Express Collections in Digital Scrapbooking.

Check it out here:

I was sceptical of the quality of digital scrapbook pages, but having tried it I can honestly say that at first glance the pages look just as nice and hand pieced paper and ribbon pages, plus you can easily and cost effectively include larger photographs on the pages! The digital layouts are actually 12″ x 12″ photographs on high quality, heavy weight photographic paper, and cost less than $3.50 per page. An 8×10 photograph costs more than that!

So, what are you waiting for? Give it a try. You can go to my Studio J website and work on your pages for free. The only time you pay for anything is when you actually order your pages. Enjoy!

Scarecrows in Fall

Wow, I really love September’s Stamp of the Month with the scarecrow image.  Fall is one of my favorite times of year….

The burlap ribbon goes nicely with it and it’s so much fun to color in with alcohol markers too! So many fun ideas for this stamp set….  Can’t wait for the kids to go to school so I can create more with it today 🙂

The Swipe Hype!

“The Swipe Hype” features the swiping stamping technique. With stamp swiping, you can add texture, distressing, movement, and motion to your stamped images.

Ready to give it a try? Choose a stamp set with a solid image and practice swiping. Email me with the results of your favorite image and I’ll mail you a free stamp set!!

Today’s the Day….

Today’s the day I finally got back into my scrap room for some fun.  I’ve been wanting to play around with the National Stamping month stamp which arrived last week… The “It’s Your Day” double stamp set being offered for $5 during the month of September is chock full of fun images for cardmaking.

The weather’s been too nice to stay indoors though, so I hadn’t been in the craft room all week. Then, late this afternoon a huge thunderstorm swept into the area and we all took refuge inside the house. I created two cards tonight, based loosely on ideas I’ve seen on Pinterest:

 

 

I used left overs from the Dotty paper pack and some Baker’s twine for the balloon strings. The bicycle image and the “happy Day” banner are from the “It’s Your Day” stamp set.  I colored in the balloons with CTMH’s new alcohol markers.

The second card:

 

also uses the Dotty papers and stamped images from “It’s Your Day”, along with Baker’s Twine and pearls.

Wow, I really enjoyed playing with my stash and making these cards. D’ya ‘suppose it’ll rain tomorrow??!??  Thanks for looking….

Oh My Darlin’!

….these Clementine cards are cute!

This month’s card class features the new Clementine Paper pack in gorgeous new colors: Saddle, Champagne and Cashmere, CTMH’s brand new fantastic BURLAP RIBBON!, and new tan and brown sparkles.
