Monster card

This is also a card I made for an upcoming workshop I will be scheduling. I made it as a halloween card but it would also be cute as a birthday card for a little boy. It is Tinkering paper and I used the collage pattern out of the Wishes book. The tinkering colors are clover meadow, sunflower, sunny yellow, and twilight.

Time of your life card

I made this card for upcoming card workshops I am going to be scheduling. I used the Passages paper and the Done Right card instructions in the Wishes book. The stamp set is It's Your Day. The inks that go with this paper are Brown Bag, Barn Red, Garden Green, and Cocoa. I distressed all of the papers and the card. On the inside of the card I stamped Happy Birthday and put the Happy upside down. So to fix it I will stamp another happy cut it out and use glue dots or 3D foam to glue it on. I will probably use a different color ink to make it look better too.

These are some of the cards I made my husband's Grandmother for her 75th Birthday. She loves to give out the cards to all her friends.

Congratulations Barbra

One of the people I admire a lot won the Biggest American Idol fan contest. Barbra congratulations. She won a Wii for her family with the American Idol game. She, more then anyone, deserved this so much. I have never seen anyone love American Idol more than her. I hope you have a great time with your Wii. Visit Barbra's Blog at

Details on layouts

I am going to post several layouts and show some of the detail work done on them. I think it is important to get that detail into your layouts. Just putting a little bling, brad or background texture on the layout can really make it extra special. I am using the Topstitch paper on all these. I did a 18 page layout using a level 2 paper kit, some extra card stock and 18 pieces of 12x12 paper.

I used some pop dots to raise the party circle on this and stamped the swirls around it.

Stamping in the spaces that have nothing in them helps tell the story.

Stamped some more swirls in a void space.

I cut out some flowers out and put a brad in the middle of them. Easy and looks good.

I put in two eyelets and tide some twine between them.

Distressing along the edges of the paper makes them pop out more.

This is a small wallet I made a while ago. I have made so many of these for gifts. Very easy and cute. I found how to do this on a Art and Soul episode. I used the Back Country paper and Camping Fever stamp set.

The band slides off and it opens so you can put pictures on the front of the flaps.

Open the flaps and decorate the pages or put pictures on them.

All-Sorts album

This is the My Creations All-Sorts Mini Album. I used the Grace paper and the Stickease with it. The stamp set is Childhood Portrait which I use way too much in all my stuff, and Delightful Things. But I love it.

Thanks for looking.

My Creations All-Sorts made into standup picture display.

This is made from two pages of the My Creations All-Sorts Album. It has four hinges on the back to help stand it up. The paper is from the Grace paper packet. The stamp set is Childhood Portrait. I love this stamp set. I sent this to my Secret Santa and she took the picture.

Coaster Album

This is a coaster album I will be doing at my next workshop. I am going to be offering different papers that people can choose from. I will have Christmas paper for those that have Christmas pictures they want to display. Hope to see you there.

2 page layout using new Topstitch paper

This is one of the new papers that just came out. I really love the colors. Baby Pink, Chocolate, Heavenly Blue, and Vineyard Berry. I am trying to figure out what pictures I want to put on it. My daughter hates pink so maybe some of her pictures when she was younger.
