Fun with cards

It's been a while since I posted cards, mostly because I make them in a hurry and forget to photograph them. I really like using the Simple Stories Snap birthday pack for card making.
WRMK Hippity Hoppity paper for the background and hand-cut little presents (unknown).

Here is another one:
Sassafras Lass background paper. What took the longest was cutting out those little presents.

And as I was in a fussy cutting mood, I did some paper piecing with a Fiskars stamp set:
The greeting is a die from Simon Says Stamp. Versafine black ink, unknown papers.

This one is a baby card where I was playing with a Kaleidacolor rainbow ink pad (tomato).

Found

It was so much fun to find these adorable photos... a perk of not being caught up.

I moved the element on the bottom left to the top because it fit better with my main grouping.

Carousel and puzzles

Two more pages for the 2012 album.
Reminisce The Wild paper; October Afternoon Thrift Shop paper, die cut tag, alphabet and stickers; Echo Park alphabet; Simple Stories adhesive brands; Lilybee rub-ons (on unknown tag); Stampin' Up marker; Doodlebug jewels; WRMK floss.

The next layout I put together for Shimelle's lots of layers challenge, which I thought would be a good exercise since I almost never think of layers until I'm looking through the finished album.
Fancy Pants Making Waves papers and embellishments from a Scrapbook Steals kit. Other: American Crafts Thickers, Echo Park enamel dots, October Afternoon stickers, Colorbok epoxy word, Tim Holtz tiny attacher, unknown white mesh ribbon. This page was based on Scrapbook Steal's Mid Week Mojo Marigold #6 sketch, which I flipped a bit because of the photos I wanted to use.

Christmas 2011

And these are the last two pages for 2011:

Crate Paper Snow Day paper and stickers; WRMK Sew Easy stitch piercer and black twine; Jenni Bowlin buttons; Queen&Co. pearls; Fancy Pants brads; unknown card stock and Christmas twine. The stitch piercer makes it so easy to pierce the paper that I keep forgetting how long it takes to actually back stitch the whole thing. Maybe I need a sewing machine...
