I made these pages for a Stamp Camp, with the stamp set Jolliest Time of Year. I used the Crop-a-dile on page 2 in the corners... for that fun dry embossed bumps or dots or even lumps *LOL*.

The pictures are of my kids Christmas 2001.. they are so cute... and I had a really great tree that year too. Thanks for looking!

My friend Terry is having a Haunting Halloween stamp camp and I made these pages for that event. Do you Love this set or what!! I sponged Old olive on the spiral punch edges, around the cauldron, and on the piece with the stitching on it. I made a tiny tag with the spider and used a jump ring to attach it to the ribbon and I also put a small 4mm black bead on the ring. I used Silver heat embossing powder for the cauldron and black heat embossing powder on all the rest... you could still use black ink.

Scrapbook pages for Michelle

These are pictures of Michelle's kids doing Easter Cookies. She had a real good picture of the cookies on a Cookie Sheet... so I took that Picture to Target and enlarged it and made the Cookie life size... so I put the Bunny Cookie on this first page....if you look at it close the Cookie looks real!!! Really it does!! The Stamp sets I used are Office Accoutrement, Stamp of Authenticity, and alphabet set Tall Tales (retired Holiday Mini 05).

I put up all 3 pictures of the pages Up.. because the double picture is blurry, and I wanted everyone to be able to see them together.I used Twill tape and Hemp behind the letters... and in the corners are pictures of the cookies the boys made, cut out and used like an accent. I used some fancy paper clips I found at target to put ribbon on.... Very Cute I think!!

I am not much on using Bold Brights ..... but with all the color's in the pictures it just had to be!! I used the stamp set All wrapped up (retired 07) for the cute jar of sprinkles... is that a cute idea or what!! I used the Horizontal Slot Punch for the sprinkles, and then glued each one down with Snail (aka Mono). I used the alphabet set Crayon fun (retired 04) and Expressive Flexible Phrases.. woo..long name for a stamp set! The Colors on both pages are Glorious green, Yoyo yellow, Only orange, Real red, Tempting Turquoise and Brilliant blue... that is ink, paper and ribbon. The letters are stamp with Chocolate chip.

I also used a piece of paper that looked like water.I used the alphabet Headline in BB and cut it out and put the words on Twill tape... with some Hodgepodge Hardware. I also used the alphabets Rough edges mini in the Hardware and Whimsical lower (retired) on the "my Buddy" part. The stamp set I used is "Shore Thing" (retired) in all the cute little squares that I made... also the shore birds on the bottom of the page is from that set; I did them in Craft white Ink. I could not use all her cute pic's so I used my 1 1/4 punch and punched out pic's with feet and a sand dollar....and cute face pic's... I used the 1 3/8 punch to back the photos.

Do you Love Halloween as much as me!!!!!? I was so Happy when Kim gave me pictures of her kids on Halloween for me to Scrapbook YEAH! I used the colors Only orange, Black, Orchid opulence and White. I used a lot of ribbon on this page, and Hodge Podge Hardware.. I think that using the Hardware makes the page GO WOW! when you look at it. The stamp sets I used are Itty bitty boo's, Trick or Treat,Web Wishes, and Halloween Backgrounds.... I think they are all retired now :( ..... I heat embossed the Trick or Treat Cat and Spider on medal edge tags with some really cool Halloween glitter that I found... it sparkles black and orange....also heat embossed the skeletons White. When you look at the page close (just click on it) on the part were I wrote the story I stamped the big Spider Web ... from Web wishes on it....*If you are wondering why I was Scrapbooking a Friends Pic's ...? It is because we started to swap Pic's of any kind and we scrapbook each others pages 2 12x12's... I love it ...... if we do it all year that would mean that we would have 36 pages done plus whatever we do ourselves.... There is 4 of us in the Group and we meet and do make and takes and give out the pages we made .... Kim cried when I gave this set to her!!! she is so cute!!! *LOL* Come back and look because Tomorrow I am putting another page that I made for a friend!!! Love you girls!!!

I made this card to help Kim out on her stamp~a~stack with the stamp set "Happy Camper". I made the card with the colors Bravo burgundy, Aways artichoke and Creamy caramel. Brads are from my Hodge Podge Hardware!! Love that stuff! I did stamp the smoke swirls from the set as a background if you can see it...

BUT it is still real cute and the Girls will want to buy the set!!! Plus the Big weekend for Camping is coming up and this is a good set to show Customers right now....

Good Luck Lady's

Whats Cookin

This is a card I made with the old set "Backyard BBQ" (first time I used it in the 2 years that I have had the set) I made it with real red card stock and marker to color in the BBQ. I used "Zig Painty" pen for the silver on the legs, smoke, handle and the round part on the top of the BBQ. I used some red checker paper that I just had around; thought that it would be great for this card. I also used the "Color Spritzer Tool" with a black marker to spray on the white card stock... don't know if you can see it very well be it looks real good... I love that tool... I used to use a tooth brush to get that effect... but the tool is so much easier!!!! I had to get out rubber gloves and all it look like surgery... *LOL*... I also stamped some Hamburger's on the red part with real red ink... don't think you can see them to well...

Love you Guys

This is one of the Crazy Picture's of my kids that I love. This page is one that I saw on Stampers showcase a while back... so I don't remember who did it.

The pattern paper is Tickles from the 04-05 Catalog. I know I got this Idea off of split coast.. I change the paper and added a the ribbon and brads.

Card Slide Show!

Some of my card from the past Year!!

So Very 6X6

This page was fun.... mostly because of the picture of my Husband being so silly! I made this page for a stamp camp at my house. All the girls loved it. I used a stapler to put all the pieces on so that it would make it easyer for my friends to add there own pic's. Stamp set is So Very! Colors are Really rust, More mustard, Close to cocoa, and real red. I also use big and little pieces!

Wild about you card with in Colors

I just love this card!! I made it with the new in colors (now last years). Card is True thyme so is the Alligator, the Elephant is Cool Caribbean and the backing on the white card stock, his ear is cut out and has glitter on it. The lion is Marigold morning, I cut out the main and put glitter on it. The bird is Vintage violet. I also put glitter on the Alligator's toes and the flower. I used the cutter tool kit to rough up the edges on the vanilla and the Cool Caribbean. White ink for the friendship part. I also used a black marker to dot the eyes.

Love Matters Chime Card

I made this card for a contest from the Love Matters set. I am really hoping that this set is in the new big Catalog. I had this great idea to make a card that looked like wind chimes and this is how it turned out, so I am calling it the Wind Chime Technique. The card is Mellow moss.. and all the hearts are in soft subtles colors plus regal rose. I backed each heart in Vanilla to give it an extra pop! and I just used wire and made jump rings by wrapping the wire on a paint brush and then cutting it. I also us extra Dimensionals so that when the card is standing up the heart chimes hang down real nice. I just used markers on the letters and a brad on the flower. I also sent this card into stampin' up in the wow art file.... I did not hear from them I was so so sad, I am hoping it makes it into stampers show case if it makes it to the big Catalog!

Calvin Playing with his army dudes

My Friend Kim made these pages for a swap. We both really loved this set "Unfrogettable" we used it a lot.

Sabrina is the one that took thses pic's at the fair, holding the camera herself for a real close up. I just love how they turned out. That day was a lot of fun.

Some how this blog post was lost in my drafts.. (cyber space) and I just found it today.. July 8, 2010.. lol
