For Always and A Flowering Bunch

Here is a card that I made using the For Always X7165C, A Flowering Bunch S1306.  This is a very simple and fast card.  If you needed to make multiple cards this one would go together pretty fast.  It is stamped right on the card itself.   
The Flower was cut from the Artiste page 32.
The leaves are cut from the Artiste page 54, Accent4.
The flower center Artiste page 38
I used our new alcohol markers and boy do I love them the are so smooth and the flow is unbelievable.  The markers come in sets of 2 the real color and then the other one you will get is either a lighter shade or a darker shade.  You can see the 2 colors you will get when you order Cotton Candy.  The leaves are with Olive.
The Stamp Set is the June Stamp of the Month S1306 A Flowering Bunch.  This one will be available only during the month of June (it's a sneak peak).
I got my inspiration from Jean Johnson for this one.  We have so many inspirational ladies at Close To My Heart.

Dream Pop and Hello

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
It has been awhile since I have posted any art work.  So here is a card using the Dream Pop paper pack.  You can get your with any $35.00 order from Close To My Heart.  It is the special this month for National Scrapbooking month.  My inspiration was from Here over at Mary Gunn's.  I love the Hello page 65 cut out from the Artiste cartridge.  When I saw her card I just had to make one using it.
If you look at the pink paper on the background you will see that it is embossed and so are the papers that I cut out the flowers from.  These are just a few of the paper and they come already embossed.  You would want to miss out on this one.
The little tag I cut out from the Artiste page 37> accent4 and it is stamped using the A1119 A Garden
The flowers are cut from the Art Philosophy page 50.
The printed paper is cut with the Ticket shape page 25 from the Art Philosophy.
I tied the little tag to the hello with our bakers twine Z1701 Neutral assortment.

Have fun with the Dream Pop paper.  Be sure to get yours soon because it is only available until May 31, 2013.

Album for the Teacher

This is am album that my daughter-in-law made for my Grandsons teacher.   I got to go to the classroom and take pictures of all the kids.   They are so cute at this age.   We were even able to get a group photo with every one of them.  Ever student wrote what they liked about the teacher.  Jenn then put what they wrote on a page by its self and put the picture of the student with it.
Even the back cover was cute.
She used the Chantilly paper pack X7163B and the Chantilly Complements Dimensional Elements. X7163C
