Laura's b-day card!

This is my sister's b-day card, just popped it in the mail today, hopefully it gets to her before the 6th. This is a Stamping bella stamp, My Mind's Eye paper, and prismacolor pencils. The colors are so much prettier in person, I'm wondering if something is wrong with the scanner! May have to start taking photos instead.

Glitter Ritz

I put some Ranger glossy accents inside these trees, then sprinkled with different colors of glitter ritz. ( One at a time). I'm glad to see the glitter sticks well with the glossy accents, not only the sookwang tape. My friend Joanna, gave me a very similar card for xmas, so I totally copied the idea from her! Hi Joanna!!!

Mom & Dad's Christmas card

I used this image from the SU! set Holy Tryptych. I used prismacolor pencils to color in, distressed the edges and sponged with close to cocoa ink. The sentiment is by Cornish Heritage Farms. I'm happy with how this turned out, very pretty.

3 Trees by Sunshine Designs

Wow, didn't realize how crooked this scan was but I'm too lazy to redo it! I love this stamp by Sunshine Designs, my friend Joanna gave it to me last year. I painted them in with Key Lime and heavenly bamboo twinkling h20's after embossing them with gold powder.

The stamp is by SU!, and some really old Basic Grey Christmas paper. Sentiment is by Cornish Heritage Farms.

More teacher's gifts

I made these little milk cartons and filled them with specialty coffee and hot chocolate for the teachers at Charlotte's school that have been helping her so much! They loved them. I bought this tutorial online from Inking Idaho LAST Christmas, and am finally getting around to making them. And they look harder than they are. Stamps are by Stampin Up!, some paper by SU! and the blue boxes are Colorful Christmas by My Mind's Eye. Ribbon is SU! too.

How cute is this??

I made this little box for one of my daughter's teachers. It has 4 3x3 note cards (or could be used as gift tags) and 3 hershey's nuggets chocolates in the center. I think I'll make a few more of these. I found the tutorial on Inking Idaho for the dimensions and some samples. The snowflakes are from Spellbinders and I used some glitter ritz on them. Patterned paper is My Mind's Eye.

6 x 12 layout

One of the assignments for the magazine was to create a 6 x 12 layout. It was fun, and I hope to be able to find an album someday that would fit this. This is a photo of the girls last year on Christmas morning. First thing they do is open their stockings.

I won a contest!!! Guest Designer for Canadian Scrapbooker magazine

I can finally post my layouts that I made for the December issue of Canadian Scrapbooker magazine. I was so lucky to win a spot (a contest from Scraptivity) as Guest Designer for both Dec and March issues. Now that it is in the stores, I can show the layouts I did. Here's one from the cruise we took last year, it's all 7 Gypsies paper. I made the flowers on my Slice.
