The Browns Fan

You will definitely enjoy this as it is about my good friend and neighbor and her Browns Room. I did not include in the journaling but she  painted the vertical blinds to match the striping on the Browns helmets.












Thanks for looking!

A2 Card and envelope storage box

Hi and again I apologize for not posting for more then 2 months. I have had some health issues that I had to get over first and now trying to get my mojo back.  So today I went into the scraproom and made this box to keep my cards I make in and protect them from being damaged.  The pattern for this is by Lori Whitlock and I purchased from the Silhouette Studio  Store.  I made it to co-ordinate it with the color theme of my scraproom. I also like the included dividers.

Bobby's Birthday

Yes I am a little behind! Bobby's birthday was in September and I am just getting these scrapped.  I was inspired by a page on Pinterest where the background was made from strips of washi tape. I used scraps and my stash for this entire layout!  I love the colorful background.  I bought that Happy Birthday piece several years ago and thought it worked perfectly with this page!

 She came in third overall after all the judging. All products from my stash- mostly scraps!

 My favorite photo is the one looking thru the window as she paints!

Christmas Card Holder

I did get some scrapping done last evening. Ever wonder what to do with those cards you received for Christmas? You don't really want to discard them-especially the handmade ones. So I started scrapping a pocket page every year that holds the cards we received for that year. I first extended a bracket shape in length and add a perforated line to make it easier to fold.  I add an extender on each side to add the depth needed to hold the card. I add this page to the special Christmas album.




















I was flattered to know that some of you will be lifting the Sympathy cards I made! That is what it is all about-sharing the inspiration.
Thanks for stopping by and allowing me to share my creations with you.

Sympathy Cards

Unfortunately I had to make two Sympathy Cards over the weekend. Both cards were from inspiration I found on Pinterest.
The first card I made in all white and embossed the background using the Cuttle Bug branch embossing folder and layered the background with a silver pearl paper. I echoed the layering int the sentiment using Spellbinders scalloped oval nested dies.


















The second card I made in yellow and white layering the background and using a Stampin Up border embossing folder then echoed the layering inside the embossed border. I used a floral stamped image and added the Spellbinder Butterfly and a punched butterfly. I used Distress Ink in Scattered Straw to stamp the image. 


















The font I used on both cards was Lavanderia, which is a free font but to find it you have to do a search for it as it is available at several places.  

I hope by adding more information to my blog posts it will be more helpful to you. If there is anything else I can add as we go along please let me know by adding it to the comments. Thanks for stopping by and I hope to be more active then I have been oin the recent past.
