Today's Post

I apologize for my inconsistency in posting. It's just me...

Anyway, I thought I would share a card I made for an embossing swap over at Card Cafe. I really wanted to do the Chalk Embossing technique from the TJ newsletter, but it was not working for me (boo whoo). So I thought what can I try instead? There was a scrap piece of polished stone paper from a few years ago in my stash. I embossed that with the Bird Call Cuttlebug folder and brushed a black Stazon pad over the embossed area and tada! The end result turned out rather nice! What do you think? Now I'm off to make more polished stone paper!

Second Poem of Album!!

Here is the second poem in the Album. If you find yourself worrying over something, maybe this little poem will provide you with some comfort and a reminder that you are not alone.

The stickers are from Reminisce Signature Series; sources for the papers are unknown.

Another thing I should mention is that since scrapbooking is challenging for me, I perused Page Maps (here). This site has been a wonderful source of inspiration and sketch ideas. While I haven't used any one specific sketch, an image or impression would pop out and after some reflection, creating, and using what was available, I had my own design.

Today's Post ~~

is for the GC134 Spicy Supply Challenge - Ribbon over at Gingersnap Creations - here. They are inchies made using ribbon. There are 4 different snowmen and the red 'gingham' borders the four sides. I had to cut the top and bottom gingham off to make it fit on the inchie. I then printed the words on Shimmery white SU paper, trimmed down to fit, tore the top to look like a snow bank, and added some Crystal stickles along the torn edge. Then used a 'side' strip of gingham for the little ribbon tab - put some stickles on it and folded it in half. Aren't they the cutest inchies?!? These were also for the Winter Inchie swap over at Stamping_Queens.

First Poem of Album!!

Here is the first poem in the Album. While it's a sad little story, it was written with loving memories of Quita, her little puppy.

The puppy digi image is here and the paw print is here. The paw print stamp (on sandy part of the main paper) is from Biblical Impressions Rubber Stamps; sources for the shell stamp, feet and shell, papers, and stones are unknown.
