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

November Krafty Kard Swap

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...We had a great time at Lani's for our Krafty Kard Swap for November.  It is so fun to see what everyone makes and get together with the Ladies too.
This month was a Fall card.  I was unable to complete mine but I will have them ready for the next one which is either a Christmas Card or a Tag your choice. So I will come up with one of each...

I love the fall colors.  I am always drawn to them.  Here are what the Ladies did.

The first one is Laurie's card.  She used Memory Box die cuts and trimmed it around the pear.  The background is embossed with fall leaves.

Pam made a Thanksgiving card, the Tag and pie were cut with the Cricut and Paper Dolls.  I love how the string on the tag hangs off the card.  Pam also embossed her card too.

Next is Debb's Fall card she use the Artbooking and Chore Chart Cricut cartridges to cut it all out.
Then she used some glitter to glitz it up.

Tamara used leaves, different textured and colored yarn for the tie, and some Gem leaves.  Tamara also embossed the background with a spider web.

Jeannine's card is a tri-fold card which is a die cut.  It is held closed with a bow that she cut out with the Artist Cricut cartridge and a Gem brad.  It is embossed with Thankful sayings.

Erin's card is random stamped with leaves and acorns on the background and a vintage image that she got off the internet then she put some glitter on it.  I love the little squirrel and the Turkey's.

Last but not least is this months host Lani.  Her card has lots of layers on it from the leaves that she scored and folded, a doily, an acorn and some ribbon.

Lani also had a demonstration for us on a tri-fold card.  Erin showed us how to use the Sizzix and the magnetic die.   It is so cute with gingerbread man.  Thanks Lani and Erin we all had a great time.  For some reason I did not make it home with 2 of the cards so when I get them I will update this post.  So keep checking back.

Can't wait for next month.  Thanks Ladies!
