This card was made with some scraps that were left at my house after a "playdate" with my friend Terri. Not only can I not throw away my scraps, I have a hard time throwing away others scraps. So these scraps of Designer Series Paper set on my cutting table for a long time and I finally made them into a card. I actually finished this card months ago, but I'm just getting around to posting it. I hope you like it.
Here is a card I made from leftover cardstock from a workshop I did several months ago. I used to just toss the leftover packets in a basket thinking I would make them into a card later, but now my basket is full and I look at the pieces of the packet and I can't remember what I made with them. So lately I have been trying to make up the cards as soon as the workshop or stamp club is over.
I think my favorite part of this card is the tiny little bow. I made this bow using the "fork technique". It's really simple and makes the cutest bows.
This has to be the most difficult project I have ever tried to photograph (I'm not a good photographer under the best of circumstances). But this brides dress is so cute in real life.
Here's the instructions to make these cute little boxes. I had to simplify mine a bit because I didn't have all the tools that the original designer had and I was also making 16 of these for our Mother-Daughter Banquet at church.
The paper is some that I have had for several years, it has a beautiful shimmer to it, which also made it very difficult to take a good picture. You can click on the picture to get a more detailed look at the box.
Well we made it back from Ohio. Steve and Jess said the Tim McGraw concert was great and they had really good seats. Ryan, Myer and I also had really good seats - at the movie theater. We went and saw Rio. It was a cute movie and the boys were really well behaved. Myer does a great job of watching the movie and he's only two.
Here's a grad card I made a few weeks ago. This one is a 5x5 square card. I used Concord Crush and Daffodil Delight on this card as our school colors are purple and gold. In our area graduations are anywhere from mid to late May depending on how many snow days we use. We seemed to use a lot this year.
Thanks for looking,
