New Blog Header

Hello, The last header I made I really didn't like. That green was just not doing it for me.  So today, being Wednesday, I was able to get some new paper from Jessica Sprague.  Wednesday is One Buck Wednesday and you can purchase some beautiful paper that works wonderful for digital scrapbooks. I like to use that for my headers.
It is not a professional one put I do have fun making them with the paper I get from Jessica.  I used Echo Park Paper Hello Summer by Lori Whitlock and Hello Summer Element Pack #2.

I am still working on cleaning out my MIL home and I am thinking the garage sale will be next weekend. I will be so happy when this is done and I can get back to my craft table.

Thanks for stopping

Raisin Boat Challenge 11 Father's Day

Hi, I am late this month. I have been cleaning out my MIL house and getting ready to so a garage sale for her. I have a very dear friend who has been helping me and I couldn't do it with out her.
The challenge this month is to create a Father's Day card. You know your dad or the father of your children, grand father, well just any male would love to have a card made by you just for them.
Here is a card I made
When I watch the men in my neighborhood riding around on their mowers I think they sure look like they are having a good time. So I though this mower from the Lawn King set would be a perfect image for a Father's day card. 
Here is what I used.

Raisin Boat Stamp: Lawn King
Raisin Boat Cardstock: Summer Lime, Black Granite, Brighton Beach White
Accessories: Memento Ink Bamboo Leaves, Tuxedo Black, Summer Sky, Copic Markers C3, N7, Y17, YG23. Embossing Folder Cloudy Skys, Short Stripe Green Ribbon

Here is a video explaining what I did.

Have a wonderful day!

LESSology Challenge 25 For Love of Fabric

Hello There! Oh boy do I love this challenge. I found some American Fabric at a garage sale and needed to make some stick pins for a swap I am in. So when the ideas started coming for this swap I was in 7th heaven.

I took the fabric and made some little bags. I filled them with crushed walnuts.

Then I made some little cloth match books, and added some lace and ribbon.
Next I added the stick pins.

I finished them off with a little button and a snap.

Here is the video of what I did.

YPP Pockets for Your Thoughts

It has been way too long since I posted.  Last week I was sick and this week I played catch up.  I did manage to sneak a little play time.  Today I finished up my Pocket for your Thoughts Swap. I just love the swaps over at Your Paper Pantry.
Iley asked that we concentrate on tags this month. The pocket still was a lot of fun.
I used an old file folder, some paper napkins and my sewing machine to create the pockets.
I added some ribbon and a download from an Etsy shop called "thephotocube."  Wendy really has some wonderful images.

Here are the tags I made. They were fun.

If you would like to see each tag. Here is a video of what I did.

You have until the 5th to sign up for all the fun challenges over at Your Paper Pantry.

Thanks for stopping and have a wonderful National Scrapbooking weekend!
