Wow I have not been here for quite a while!

Time I got back over here I would say. I guess I got busy making Christmas cards and all and gave up on my blog. Not sure how much longer I am going to continue. If I am not going to make it worth your while then I should close it down. Going to make one more good attempt!

 Here are some cards I have made the past couple of weeks. Trying to keep the spark going!

This canning Jar is too cute. It is from the Silhouette Design
Store and was designed by Lori Whitlock.  It folds down flat so it will fit into an envelope.  It has three layers inserted for the flowers.

This gatefold card was inspired by Jennifer McGuire. The heart is attached to the inside of the card. The vellum band slides on and off easily and I stamped the sentiment onto the vellum with Stazon ink. 

This card has a layered front panel with the flowers I made from stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations.  I love  texture the stamp gives them and I used floral tools to add extra dimension. I then inked them with distress inks with red and burnt orange.  The tag I cut and stamped the design and sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by and giving my cards a look!

Buttons, Buttons & more Buttons

Here's a layout I have been wanting to do for a long time but finally got around to it. Last Fall we went to Dover, Ohio to see the Warther Museum. Mr. Warther made a living making knives which his family continue to make but he had a fabulous hobby which was carving. He carved trains from ebony and ivory and they actually had moving parts.  They are amazing but his wife also had a hobby. She collected buttons, she would sort them, and match them and then make designs and pictures with them....with each button being hand sewn on.  I am sure you will be as amazed as I was when you see these works of art.

Arbor Day 2016

August can not be here already!  Man did this summer go by fast! Finally was able to scrap a page as I was helping a friend with photos for a project of hers. I am so far behind but will get caught up eventually! The photos on this layout have other children in it whose faces and names ahave been blurred. Thanks for looking!

Birthday Cards

Here are two versions of birthday cards I made last might. I drew the floral designs onto rectangles on my Cameo. Then I colored them with watercolor markers.  Then layered them onto the blue card stock layer. I stamped the greeting with Distress Ink on Faded Jeans.  The lower version is not as straight as it could be.  Thanks for looking!
