Hello everyone if you remember the post about my nieces girlfriend getaway for which I made stationary sets (if you would like to see them click here these are some add on items I made to go with them. My niece asked if I could make a couple of items to compliment the stationary set. I made flower pot cards using my sihouette and a pattern from my scrappy chic. The flowers are punches glued on to jumbo paper clips that can be used as book markers. I stamped a friendship poem on the inside and added a stand to the back of the card. The second item I made was a photo holder made from a giant clothes pin. I painted the pins with acrylic paint to match there stationary sets added punched flowers and photos I printed to look like polaroids and added a caption to the bottoms. If you would like to see another example of what to do with those jumbo clips checkout Tammart cards and paper crafts here

Have a great week!

Well I am back to making shower invites this time for a friend of the family. They are expecting a little boy in September ,the nursery is a nautical theme so that is where I took my inspiration from. First I made the invites using my silhouette to cut out the base of the card with one of their images. I also cut the sailboat with the silhouette and used my cuttlebug folder for extra texture. The gift is another baby plaque like I did for my (soon to be grandaughter) the boy plaque is with a nautical theme to tie into the nursery. Now the card is my least favorite I think it has somehthing to do with seeing such perfect ones over at the cutting cafe, where the template for the sailboat comes from. Thanks for letting me share with you

Yes I do scrapbook and since my sub title says scrapbook cards and more I thought I would share a scrapbook page with you. I did this for a challenge over at www.tallyscrappers.com . We had to make a male page with the colors red,navy and black. This is my nephew Alex striking a pose with his ball and bat. I used my silhouette to make the Giant baseballs with his name and also used it for the border of baseballs. Thanks for stopping by it will be back to cards next post.

My oldest Stepdaughter is due in September she is having a little girl ( Halo). The shower was today and I thought I would share the card and plaque I made for her. The baby's nursery is blue and green that is why you don't see pink. The card is a easel style this way she can disply it in the baby's room if she wants. The decorative frame and label were cut with my silhouette. The plaque base was made from recycled armoire packaging. I used pattern paper along with flowers and baby Angel cut from my silhouette. I also added a gift bag full of baby shoes with a tag that reads " A girl can never have too many shoes" I saw this done at another shower and just loved it so I could not wait to do it. Well thanks for stopping by.
