3rd Grade!!

I have used the Seasonal Snapshot Project Life kit for this layout featuring my daughter's third grade class picture.  There are some really fun cards and embellishments that go along with each "season" the collection covers.

I added some images from Kinda Eclectic in the background and they are a little difficult to see on the pictures.

Lastly I added a few buttons and a hardware essentials paperclip.

Sassy and Eclectic

This card was another that a customer ordered from me.  I thought the middle image from Kinda Eclectic that looks like a sun was kind of cheery and fun for a get well card so I started with that in the background.  

The card is made with Naturals White card stock - I like to switch over to that once in awhile.

You did it!

There is quite a hodge podge of elements on this card.  I paired the Trim the Tree designer series paper with some Kraft card stock stamped with Dotty Angles and a sentiment from Bravo.

To the Newlyweds

Back to the Love Story Project Life Cards again for this card!  I used the Heart border punch at the top of a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock and then added the Project Life card, a little embellishment and two of the punched hearts to it. 

To keep with the silver theme (on the "mr. & mrs.), I used some silver washi tape from the All is calm collection.

Our county fair is just wrapping up and although my kids are not involved other than as spectators and maybe pedal tractor pull contestants, I thought this card was somewhat fitting.  I used the Yee Haw photopolymer stamp set and added some Flowerpot designer series paper to the mix.

A little bit of linen thread is wrapped around each edge and fastened in the back.

White Christmas

The stamp set I used today is one in the Holiday Catalog called White Christmas.  I am loving our fabulous fall/harvest weather right now and truthfully am no where near ready for the white stuff, but I like the stamp images :)

I "hung" the banner between the trees and just added a little bit more ink with a marker to make sure they were hooked to the trees.  With the photopolymer stamps, you can manipulate them a little bit so that they can be curved or stretched just a little bit extra sometimes and I think I may have not had the tree image on quite straight when I stamped it...

Color Me Autumn

Well, I actually didn't intend to send you two posts yesterday, but will blame it on lack of sleep :)  Hope you enjoyed them anyway!!
Today I have a card I made for a customer order that uses the Bloom with Hope stamp set and some Color Me Autumn designer series paper.  One thing I really like about the dsp is that it incorporates both Very Vanilla and Whisper White (not on the same designs).  I tend to go more toward Whisper White than Very Vanilla, but I like using them both.

I added a little bow made with the Stitched Satin Blackberry Bliss ribbon as well for a little accent.
