Top Note "Thanksgiving" Card Set

This weeks challenge over at GSP is to create a Thanksgiving card using Nestabilities..... well I don't own any but I do have the Storybook cart and DS. So here's my take on the challenge. I created a card set with a matching box.

Halloween Favors-MME

Thanks to MME for giving GPS our first sponsor! This is from MME Halloween Line Boo To You this paper is FABULOUS!! I made these party favors for my DD GS Troop the girls really liked them but I think the parents loved them more! I filled them to the rim with goodies! If you haven't tried MME you don't not what you are missing.

Altered TP Rolls

This is one of my latest projects from the GSP DT. We had to create an altered items using a "Winter Wonderland" theme. The paper is from DCWV paper stack 08'. I used the 3D (made is 2D) Christmas tree from the WW cart. I'll have to add my snow pictures if we get any here in GA this year....if not I guess I'll send it to my sister in VA!

I had so much fun creating this layout. This is my oldest son and the first football game of the season.....I love football! I tried to make sure that I kept this one all boy. Techniques used: Fold out mini album(pictures are on all sides of the fold out 7 total) , hidden journaling, distressing, crackle paint, rub-ons and the title was created in CDS. Hope you all like it.

This weeks challenge over at Glue, Scissors, Paper was to create a wordbook. This book is special to me because it was made with lots of love for my little nephew Elam. I've done lots of techniques...quilling, embossing, layering and re-using the clear packaging. Enjoy.

Warm Wishes

This is a card that I made for the "Sistas Blog" weekly challenge using the heat embossing technique. I've used colored pigment ink and an opaque embossing powder so that the pigment ink shows through. This is a really neat effect and if you can't find a particular color embossing powder you can use this technique. Have Fun.

Mother's Day Card

Here's what I will be sending my mom for Mother's Day. This is the decoupage technique that I saw on the Cricut MB and knew at first site that I wanted to do one for my mom. It's one image that has been layered to create a 3D image. There are tons of images on the web for this technique. My next one will be a rose, so check back soon!

It's Just Grape Juice

This is the DD New Year's Eve at a family get together. This is the first time that I used the pink and black combination, got the inspiration from her shirt. I've add a lot of flowers, swirls, stickles and some masking. Carts used were SB and AE. This page was featured in the the March 09 issue of Scrapbook News & Reveiw on online magazine!

Cheap Container for Embellies

I was walking through Michael's the other day and stumbled on the little favor tins in the wedding department. The are the same size as the tins that you find that they sell for way too much in the scrapbooking area by MM. Well guess what you can get 30 for $19.99 and if you use a coupon is will be even less! Pop your embellies in and stick them to a magnetic board! Just a little tip for the frugal scrapper.

DCWV Inchies

Have you seen the new DCWV Stacks? Well I got mine today and after looking through them all the front cover caught my eye.....they are just as pretty as the paper so I thought I have to do something with those. I recently discover the world of Inchies (1"x1" little squares), so I sat down and took the front cover of the LA CREME Stack and cut it into these little squares and created this card. How neat and green is that. Try it out I'm sure you will fall in love.

Azari's Word Book

This is a word book that I did for my Great-niece she was born 3 months premature but by God's Grace and Healing hands she is doing great! Her name is Azari and I hope she cherish this book when she gets older.
I've done a lot of techniques in this one ex. the tag was made using the clear packaging from some of my scrapping don't throw them out.

I've add lots of spaces where my niece can put pictures or journaling. The top flap is another clear packaging scrap that I used acrylic paint and my favorite white pen for the doodling.

Here I've used once again my clear scraps and ran it through the cuttlebug to emboss and added some acrylic paint to give it some definition and the tag slips right behind it!

Here's a close up of the embossing and the tag all in place.

This page actually has six mats for pictures. I've added a few embellies but still have to finish this one up.

Here's one flap.

Here' s the other flaps 4 are pictured and 2 are on the bottom for a total of 6 mats! I have one more page in the book to finish but I wanted to share because I just thought it is turning out so pretty.
