Stack the Deck Mini Album

I love Laura's, from Follow the Paper Trail, wonderful tutorial that shows how to make a Stack the Deck Mini Album using envelopes!  I had a blast making this mini album for a co-worker.  I used Graphic 45 & My Mind's Eye paper - I love both of these companies!!! 

Here is a link to the video tutorial with Laura.  She makes making this album look easy- because it really is!  Hope you enjoy viewing my mini album too!

Squirrel Good-bye!

We said good-bye to a co-worker this week!  I wanted to make a card for her for everyone to sign.  This squirrel is all punch art.  I saw something similar on Pinterest. As soon as I find it- I will give credit.   I used Spellbinder's oval and circles to make my Squirrel.  The tail is a free hand cut. I love the new glasses die I have- I even used the piece that drops out of the glasses for the nose - upside down!  I used my new Sizzix Pop N cut to have the Squirrel stand when the card is open.  The acorns are from Memory Box-which I borrowed from my sister, Rochelle!  Below is a picture of the envelope I made using my new ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD!  Love it too!!
 PS:  I found the inspiration for my Punch Art Squirrel.  You can check it out here-

Fun & Games Tag

I love playing with the Prima Doll stamps! I haven't posted anything on my blog lately  so I thought I would show you what I have been working on.   I found vintage Bingo cards the last time I went "Junkin" along with an old Monopoly Game.  I used one of the cards from that game for this tag.   I have a jar full of old Scrabble letters that I use once in a while and they seem to fit on this tag.  You can't tell from this picture but I raised the skirt on this doll and her hair too.  Below is a picture of the back of the tag.  I am going to add a sentiment in the pocket.  

A co-worker had a birthday recently- I was happy to make a card for her!  My sister owns the cutest stamp that I had asked to borrow.  I believe it is from Art Impressions.
I love it!  I had seen a similar card on Pinterest and thought I would give it a try.

I used my new Sizzix Pop n Cut die to make this card.  I know you can make your own Pop up card but
with this die it does make it alot easier!  The clouds are from Memory Box.  This card reminds me of how I feel when I go off with my sisters for an adventure~  Pure fun!  Have a wonderful Monday!

Welcome Baby Safari Card

A co-worker asked me to make a Baby Shower card.  The shower will have a Safari theme!  I have been wanting to do some Punch art so I used this opportunity to create this card.  It is the 3D card technique that I used to make the Circus train in May- you can find the link to the instructions under Blog Archive on the right of this post. 

The palm trees are from Memory Box.  The monkey is a Sizzix die - that I love!  The other animals are from Punch art.  I think it turned out cute!  I really had fun coming up with the design. 
Our Grandson, Ezra, came for a visit this past weekend!  It was a quick visit but I always love it when we see him.  He is really a great kid!  He can figure out any game on my tablet!  I really have fun watching him- when he gets tired- he makes me play!  I am becoming a GAMER!!!  Not really, but I can pretend!
