Ever since I took these pictures of my granddaughter (4 years ago) getting a Princess makeover at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo Salon at Disneyland I knew I had to make a layout. She kept making the funniest faces and we all laughed so hard. The paper is not from CTMH, but from Simple Stories Little Princess.
Here I am 13 years old at Disneyland for the third time in my life. The first time I was much too young to remember much about it except that it was the most fascinating place I had ever been to. The second time was with the Camp Fire Girls. This was such a special trip for me. My oldest sister took me, my younger sister and niece to Disneyland!!! And, we got to fly on an airplane. Those are two things that most kids didn't get to experience back then. This is when Disneyland had A-E ticket books. The E tickets were the best and you didn't get very many of them. I use CTMH Happiest Place to create my layout.
With the Coronavirus going around and us crafters forced to stay home, why not document what your family has been doing during this time with a scrapbook page. I plan to make a page and use pictures from the internet of empty shelves, the toilet paper hoarding and the long lines. I will also add pictures of my family and tell what they have been doing. I love this stamp set. The images will look good on my pages. You can get yours here.
With everyone out of hand sanitizer, Brooke and I made our own. I found these cute little containers at Target. They are just the right size to fit in your purse. To make it, you need: 1 cup of 91% isopropyl alcohol 2/3 cup of Aloe Vera gel 8-15 drops of Essential oil Mix well and put in your container
Happy Friday! Today I am playing with the "Dreams Take Flight" stamp set from Close to My Heart.
I don't know about you, but I love scrolling through Pinterest for Inspiration. I saw a card with an airplane flying over the trees and had an ah ha moment. I combined this stamp set with the pine tree from Spruced Up. To get the variation in tree color, I stamped in Charcoal ink and then without inking up, I stamped again and this gave a lighter version. I used water colors for the sky. Thanks for stopping by.
Hi Everyone! My card class ladies are asking for "Man" cards so I decided to play with this stamp set from CTMH called "Wild and Free." I colored the fish with "TriBlend Markers" Each marker has three shades, so I didn't have to use many markers. I used these two, "Dull Green" and "Coral Blend." I colored the fish all over, with the lightest shade of Dull Green. Then I colored over the dark scales with the darkest shade, then I went over the spaces between the dark and the light with the medium shade and then blended it all together with the lightest shade. Then I went over the fins and tail with Coral blend, allowing some of the green to show through. I then I cut the cattails and ovals from Cricut. The sentiment is from a retired stamp set called "Jack-Cardmaking" and the fly fish hooks are from another retired set called "Campin Fever."
Thanks for stopping by.
Playing with Perk Up from Close to my Heart. This stamp set is so cute! It also comes with the die cuts for the coffee cup. The card was made from CTMH’s Hawthorn paper pack. The coffee circles were random stamped in first, second and third generation on Vanilla Cream cardstock in Toffee ink. The wrapper on the cup and sentiment are stamped in Espresso ink.
Sorry I have been MIA. This year is slipping away too quickly! Today I want to share a card with you that I enjoyed making.
The stamp I used is called Every Little Thing - Scrapbooking (D1877). This one is my favorite in the current catalog. I had so much fun coloring these images and I finished them off with a shimmer brush. Thanks for stopping by.
I am celebrating a friend’s birthday tonight and wanted to make a special card for her. I used the CTMH stamp set “Fabulous Birthday” and Boutique paper pack. I added some paper flowers and am happy with the way it turned out.
I was at the supermarket one day and as usual went down the card isle to get ideas. I saw a cute cut out owl valentine card and really liked it. Getting into my creative mind, I said "I can do that." So when I got home, I got out my Heart Happy paper from CTMH and the Artbooking cartridge in Cricut Design space and found a cute owl. I had so much fun putting him together. His little wings even open up. I don't know if it's just me, but I love owls. They are such amazing creatures. This past summer I was at the Toby Mac concert and saw the most beautiful owl fly right up on the stage. I'm sure he enjoyed the music just as much as I did.
A friend sent me a picture of a card that she saw in the store and asked if I could make one like it. So, I went to my Cricut and loaded the Seasons of Joy Digital Cartridge and was able to make a card that was 10 times better than the store bought card.
A friend asked me to make an 80th birthday card for her mother. Talk about the pressure! I put sway too much pressure on myself. I wanted to make the perfect card and struggled with that. Here is a card that I am finally happy with.
All items are from Close to My Heart. The flowers are from the Beautiful You stamp set. The rose colors are Poppy and Peach. The leaves are Sage, Fern and New England Ivy. The paper is from the Charlotte paper. And I cut the 80 out of gold glitter paper on the Cricut.
