Trick or Treat

Hello and thanks for stopping in today!!

Well, since halloween is right around the corner, I decided to make a card that celebrated that fun holiday.

I recently got a freebie from KaDoodle Bug Designs and he was calling out to me to use him on a card.(I guess it's a him, LOL) 

Snce I had a few other things on my table, I decided to incorporate some of them on this card. 

First, I used the Peeking Pumpkin Skunk digital image from KaDoodle Bug Designs as the main part of the card. Next I used some pumpkin shapes and a fence. The sentiment is from an old Unity halloween set and I used some circles and an oval die cut shapes as well.  BTW that background is one of the sheets I made using my Gel Plate. I make these and then hold on to them to use on cards from time to time.

Here is the finished card using all those things.

Another Napkin Card

 Hi Everyone,

I know I blogged about napkin cards a few posts ago. But I went shopping at The Dollar Tree and I found a package of napkins that are so pretty and perfect for the fall season we are now in. And these napkins just jumped into my basket!! And I just had to share the cards I made using this napkin with you all. If you missed my original post on how I made a napkin card you can read this post and follow along on how I make these cards. 

These napkins are just 2 ply, 14 to the pack and the size is 11.75" X 15.75".  Which is pretty big if you ask me. 

 Napkin opened up

I cut the napkin in half thru the center of the white space amd removed the bottom ply. 

I used a 12 X12 piece of white CS, cut it to a 6 X 12 and applied the glue to the CS, (My glue is blue when applied and turns clear when it is drying.

Next I gently laid the napkin down on the glued CS and patted the napkin down. I then gently smoothed the napkin and set it aside to dry.

After the drying period, I trimmed the piece down, cutting off the border on the botton and then trimmed the top as well. This left the mounted napkin about 5 3/4" high and about 11 3/4" across. 

Next I cut it in half so I could get two 6' x 6" cards out of this half of the napkin.

To finish, I added some colored layers to a 6" X 6"  card base and attached the napkin layer and added some decorative corners, and a sentiment and the 2 cards are done. 

OK, I promise that I won't do anymore napkin cards for a while, 
or if I do I won't go into detail on how I did it. LOL

It's A Boy

 Hello everyone,

Thought I'd pop in and show a comissioned piece that I just finished and delivered.

It's a Baby Boy book.

It was pretty easy to make and the person who purchased it, just loved it. 

Let me share some photos of the book.

Here is the front cover


The checkered piece you see in the above pic, is attached to the 6X6 page Its a half page and it folds to the back of that page, it holds a small long tag. To the right of the binding you will see a powder blue half page. It folds to the front of that 6X6 page. It too holds a long tag.The 6X6 page also holds a pull out as well, so there is lots of room to add pics and notes.

another page

This 6X6 book also has 3X6 pages on either side of the 6X6. I make these books with 6 pages and the book has a front and back covers, just like a regular book. I added decorative binding to each page and the covers and used my Cinch to bind it with binding wires. There is plenty of room for pics and notes and other rememberences and small memorabilia. I added white ribbon to the pull outs (tags) so its easy to spot and to pull out.

The DP I used is from a 12X12 pad that I purchased last year -  I think I bought it at Stampeddler Plus near Novi Michgan, at a great craft store. They had very unique items and I also picked up a pad for girls as well. 

I love making these books and as I mentioned they are easy to make (IMHO). Of course everything is easy when you know how, LOL. (That's what a lot of my friends tell me anyway.)
