Landon's Baby Book

My cousin is going to have a baby boy any day now!!  As a gift I made an 8" x 8" scrapbook page for her so all she'll have to do once Landon arrives is print some pictures and glue them down!  So the next few posts will be pages of the book. 

This is the book cover.  It's just a plain brown scrapbook, so I added some ribbon and a Chipboard Element to fancy it up a bit.

Stamps: Rough Edges Mini Alphabet
Ink: Old Olive
Paper: Old Olive, Sweet Pea DSP
Accessories: Pumpkin Pie 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Hemp Twine, On Board Chipboard, Word Window Punch


Rose Whale

Another thank you card!!! This one came together really quick, mostly because it was inspired by a card I saw on SCS. I don't remember the last time I used my Stampin' Sponges so it was fun to get them out again.

Accessories: Stampin' Sponges, Corner Rounder Punch


Pick a Petal of Thanks

Corinne is still being given gifts and I'm still making thank you cards! I recently acquired Pick a Petal in a trade so I was so excited to use it for the first time! I love the look for the paper pieced petals so I had to do that first. And I liked the drawn lines of the petals and the center of the flower so I hand-drew the lines around the edge of the card.

Stamps: Pick a Petal, Short & Sweet
Ink: Basic Black, So Saffron, Whisper White Craft
Paper: So Saffron, Whisper White
Accessories: 1" Circle Punch, Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker, Paper Snips, Stampin' Dimensionals


Wonderful Father

This is the 3rd Father's Day card I made. This one is for my dad. I dug through my stamp sets to find one I hadn't used in a while. I veered from the norm with this card, because I usually only use Wonderful You for fall cards and scrapbook pages. I think this is the first time I used it without using a brown or orange color.

Stamps: Wonderful You, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Old Olive
Paper: Old Olive, Whisper White
Accessories: Hemp Twine, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals


1st Father's Day

Today is my hubby's first Father's Day!! We've got a nice day planned including a small present! Accompanying the present will be this card. I wanted to make a robot for DH and I saw a card on SCS with a punch robot so I used it for inspiration. DH liked the Smooch Spritz on his dad's card so I used some Smooch Spritz on his card, too.

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Basic Black
Paper: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Whisper White
Accessories: Silver Foil Smooch Spritz, XL Cog Punch, 1" Circle Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Small Tag Punch, Double Circles Punch


Gearing Up for Father's Day

Father's Day is tomorrow!  Are you ready?  I had a heck of a time getting this card done and in the mail.  Not because it was terribly difficult, but because I had a fussy baby hanging out with me while I was stamping.  It took me all day, but I finally finished it, but I don't think it's going to make it to it's destination in time.  I'm sure my father-in-law will understand, though.

Thank You Elephant

The amount of stamping time I have has significantly decreased lately, but thank you cards are still needed, so I managed to whip this one up really quick.  It's nothing fancy, but then again, I am a clean and simple stamper.
