Fall Colors Abound...

This is a 12 x 12 scrapbook I made for a wedding gift. I LOVE this stamp set, as well as the collage stamping & one sheet wonder techniques. Questions? Contact me! ;) I used an assortment of Earth Elements card stock and ink, as well as Versamark ink, Sahara Sand card stock, and two IN Colors (what's this? Contact me!) - Marigold Morning and Cranberry Crisp. Accessories used were Grosgrain Ribbon in mustard, chocolate and moss, & Dimensionals. There were two each of 10 different layouts for a total of 20 pages in protectors - all in the beautiful SU! Natural Linen Album.

More Inspiration...

These beautiful binder inserts were made using the New Recollections Designer Series Papers (which the catalog is also patterned after!) This is my personal binder of Inspiration Sheets. Aren't you inspired just looking at it? :)

Last Days of Summer

The Summer Mini Catalog is only available through the end of August - then everything in it is GONE! Like these Double-Sided Papers in the Petal Patch series used in creating these lovely Inspiration Sheet binder inserts. (What are Inspiration Sheets? 6 full color projects made from a specific stamp set, that included ingredients and how-to instructions. Want some? Contact Me!)

Stamp Sets: Letterpress Alphabet & Classic Alphabet. Card Stock/Paper: Petal Patch Double-Sided Paper, Blush Blossom, Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue & Whisper White. Inks: Close to Cocoa Classic Ink. Accessories: Write Me a Memory Font CD, Mini Glue Dots & Blue Gingham Ribbon.

Ahoy Matey!

This is my son's birthday party invitation this Summer. The Idea Book & Catalog is an INVALUABLE tool for project designs/layouts. I copied the layout directly from the catalog, only changing the colors. The inside (not shown) was Confetti White, printed on my computer, and stamped & watercolored with more images from the stamp set. If you don't have a copy of the IB&C - call me TODAY and see how you can get it for FREE!

Card Stock: Ballet Blue, Real Red, Sahara Sand, Basic Black & Confetti White. Crafters Tool Kit and gold eyelets, Mini Glue Dots, Paper Snips and Watercolor Wonder Crayons with Aquapainter. Inks used: Basic Black & Ballet Blue.

And here's the Thank You I stamped and then attached a Polaroid picture of the First mate Birthday Boy wiht each of his guests. The boys took home their thank you's in their treasure hunt treat bags (which were lunch bags rolled with the coordinating jumbo wheel, of course!)

Hey Cowgirl!

This card is a birth announcement made with the Cowboy Kid stamp set. To make the girl - use the Basic black Stampin' Write Marker to ink up the stamp, omitting the moustache. The image is then colored in with Stampin' Write Markers in Pretty in Pink, Barely Banana and Creamy Caramel. Hair is srawn on using the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker. Card stock is Creamy Caramel, Pretty in Pink and Confetti White. "Howdy" was stamped in Creamy Caramel. 1/8" hand punch, Natural Hemp and Crafters Tool Kit & (retired) star eyelets. Also used - the Write Me a Memory CD for the announcement wording inside.
