Look at the card my Granddaughter made

My 9 year old granddaughter made this card for her teacher.  I love it and I think her teacher will too.
I love it when my granddaughter creates.  She is very talented and has always had a place of her own in my scrapbook room. 
I have been working on her to make a Crush book.  She will when she is ready.  I just can't wait!

December Kard Klub Swap update

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...I can't believe that I didn't post the hand painted ornament that Tamara made.  She is an Artist and she does beautiful work.  Everyone in the group got a different one.  I actually picked out Raggedy Ann but Laurie said that I really needed the one that she got.  My granddaughter loves owls and Laurie picked the bag with the owl.  We traded and when I showed it to my granddaughter she screamed, ran to her room and hung it on her wall.  Yep Laurie you were right!.  Thanks for trading she loves it and so do I.
 Thanks Tamara we love the owl.

December Kard Klub Swap

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...This months card swap was at Erin's.  It was our Christmas gift exchange and that is always fun!  We started the evening off with a little treat holder that Erin made by folding a 6x6 paper, she put a cute and yummy candy in it too.  Each of the holders were different.
Jeannine passed out homemade butter-brittle in a fry box that she cut out from the Artist cartridge. Each holder was different too.   I love butter-brittle and Chocolate !!
Erin had set a beautifully decorated table with a red table cloth and white embroidered with red napkins.  She had a birch centerpiece that was filled with white and green flowers and foliage.  I really need to remember to take more pictures.  Usually that is not my problem.
Then it was time for the card swap. For this month our theme was a Christmas card or a Tag.  Here are Jodie, Donna Jean's, and Erin's.
Next we have Laurie's, Debbie's, Kathy's, mine, and Tamara's.  Laurie's was a mouse house stamp and she used copic markers to color it in.  Mine was done with all Washi tape.  Kathy's was a picture that she found, can you tell she just got back from Hawaii?  Debbie cut out a stamped image and placed it on her embossed card. Tamara's was gold embossed and Martha Stewart punches.
That's it for the cards.  Now for the tags.  I didn't get to make my card for last month so I made a card and a tag for everyone this month.  I cut the tag from the Artist cartridge and the book plate is from Fabulous Finds.  The image is a free printable from google images.  The flowers are from Jo-Ann's and so are the white and gold balls and the silver jingle bell.  Pam made her tag and embossed the Merry Christmas.  Jeannine cut the mitten from the Artist cartridge.  She hide the snowflakes on her Gypsy and then stamped snowflakes where she wanted them.  I love the fur that she used for the cuff.   Lani embossed her tag then went over it with white ink and punch out the snowman.  So cute.
These are the make up cards that Kathy and I brought.  I really love all the colors in Kathy's card.  Don't you?

Next it was the desert, Erin made a Bird Nest Cake and it was delicious we all asked for the recipe.
Check out those plates.
When we finished with desert we did our gift exchange.  We drew numbers and chose gifts with the option to steal something already picked.  I came home with a Bind It All machine.  We had such a great time.  Thanks Ladies!

I forgot to post the ornament that Tamara made.   You can see it here   Sorry Tamara!!!!!!

Altered Composition Book

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...I have so much fun creating Altered Composition Books for friends.  I made this for a friend that has had our whole travel group over to her home many times.  Her and her husband are such a nice couple.  I have enjoyed getting to know them this year.
While we were in Italy I took this picture of Terry on our last night just before we entered the restaurant.  We were standing across the street and we hollered at her and then she did the pose.  I love it when I capture fun spontaneous things.
When I was looking for the paper I would use I just happened to pick up the Claire Workshop on the Go.  On the stamp set one of the stamps said Express yourself.  So I used it and the paper.  It all goes together nicely I think.  I like it when I don't have to think about what goes with what.
Then I went to my goodies drawers and started pulling out things that I had and in no time it was done.  Everything is Close To My Heart except the Ribbon.  I really love it when I use up things from my stash.  But somehow that never seems to really get smaller!  Hummmm.
I think I have said that I love to doodle so the stitching I drew on.
Stamp sets:
    C1552 Claire WOTG  No longer available
     D1577 Sparkle & Shine Scrapbook WOTG You can see it below.  I circled it in Red. This stamp set can be used for lots more that Christmas.

      The chocolate ribbon is from my stash
      Z1800 Colonial White Rosette Ribbon

      Z1764 Just Blooms Paper Shapes
      Z1753 Brown & Tan Sparkles
      Z1817 Slate Polka-dot Washi Tape

Everything else is from my stash.
