Altered Pages

Today, I dug really deep to find some altered pages of some books that I worked on for some friends. The pages were created some years ago. They still make me smile when I view them, so I am sharing them with you. I hope that you enjoy them.

Father's Day Art Piece

Father's Day was such a wonderful day. It was my husband's 1st Father's Day. I want to share an art piece that I created for him. He loved it. I hope that you will too. I used some Karen Foster Paper-Actually, the leftover scraps from the table top book that I made of the Twins a couple of post back. I also used some epoxy quotes, flowers, buttons, metal embellishments, ribbon, and coordinating embossed cardstock. Enjoy!

Father's Day

Something special for all of the Fathers...

I created this card using some CTMH scrapbook paper, cardstock & inks. The stamp is by Paper Inspirations. The coordinating ribbon is by SU. I loved the multi layered look. I hope that you do too.
Happy Father's Day!

Blog Award

How sweet!!!! I received this lovely blog award today from my wonderful friend Brenda. She is too sweet to think of me. Thank you Brenda!!!!

Cherish-Mini Table Top Scrapbook

Today, I want to share a little table top scrapbook that I made with my Bind It All machine. I took some photos of the girls recently playing with each other in their room. I knew that I wanted to scrap them, so I decided to create a little treasure with a focus just on them. I added some journaling to the inside cover. The back and front covers were covered with some Karen Foster scrapbook paper. I love the design of the paper and the colors are so perfect. I layered their photos on to some coordinating mat stacks from DCWV, punched each page with my Bind It All (BIA) and bound the book with a BIA Coil. I used a baby themed Memories frame for the cover and a Cherish charm by AMM. I added coordinating ribbons to help tie the colors together and to add a little more frill to the book. I then added a prima flower to the inside of the frame with a button as the center piece. I also added some gems to the back cover of the book to create feet for table top placement...I just love gems....*:) Enjoy...

Mimosa Card

I created this card to complete a set of all occasion cards. I used some pretty papers from SEI called Mimosa. I fell in love with this collection after seeing it at a convention in SC several months ago. I love the colors. I coordinated the Mimosa paper with some tulip cardstock from CTMH. I also used some tulip and sorbet ink. The dandelion is by Penny Black. I added some yellow dew drops to finish off the card.

Miracle Art Box

Hi there,

I want to share a dear piece to my heart. I created this piece to hold some personal writings to the girls and their ultrasound photos. I call it my Miracle Art box. The ultrasound photo featured on the box is of both babies-so sweet. Enjoy!

I used some K & Co. papers with coordinating embellishments, a penny black stamp, a transparency by Daisy D's, and an artificial flower. The letters are from one of the Quickutz sets-yes, I dusted the tool off and got all excited all over again. I don't know why I didn't use it much in the past. I will use it more in the future. It is quite handy. While I love most of the tools I have, I must admit-I really love just picking a tool up ready to use versus powering one up.

Cloe's Closet Flip Book

I finally finished this flip book that I have been working on for the past several months. This wonderful project was taught in one my stamp club meetings. I used Cloe's Closet scrapbook paper by Making Memories and embellishments. The scrapbook paper is complimented with solid colored cardstock by CTMH. I used my lovely Penny Black stamp for the cover and some CTMH floral stamps throughout the flip book. I love hodgepodge projects like this. It gives you an opportunity to play with so many goodies. I really enjoyed completing this project. The final project is a wonderful keepsake.

Vertical Organization (Copic Marker Block Stand)

I have to tell you, this is the sweetest bit of organization ever. I used to store my copic markers in a copic wire stand, but needed more space. I loved the look, but I needed to go vertical. I ordered these copic block stands that gave me a little more playing room. I ordered 4 of them. They fit nicely on top of each other with 2 views of my markers. I love it!

Birthday Cards

Recently, I made some birthday cards using some Anna Griffin Papers and SU floral stamp. The papers were complimented with some tulip cardstock by CTMH. The worded stamp is by SU as well. I enjoyed the way the cards came out. Anna Griffin continues to create elegant papers that are irresistible. I love love love to play with them. Hugs, Karen
