Birthday card

Here is another card that I made for Party Time Tuesday and was supposed to be posted next week:
I used LilyBee - Catching Fall - paper + die cut and American Crafts Delight Flowers - Swing - from the November'10 Scrapcetera kit. Pink Paislee Hocus Pocus Glitter Stickers from their October'10 kit. American Craft cardstock and May Arts ribbon from my stash. The die cut was propped up using U-cutit foam by Glue Arts.

Party canceled

My second exciting news is not exciting anymore... I was picked for the Design Team at Party Time Tuesday, but Kristie and Diana decided to take the blog down on January 1st. I'll really miss them, as I greatly enjoyed their challenges.

This was supposed to be posted in January, as my first DT post. The challenge was to make a Birthday card based on a sketch (which unfortunately I cannot post). Here is my card:
I used American Craft cardstock, My Mind's Eye - Lounging Around - paper from the Country Home July'10 kit I won at Color me Miki, K&Co. - Wild Saffron - flower, Offray ribbon, SRM birthday sentiment (on the ribbon), and EK success bright large gemstone stickers.

I'm so sad the Party has been canceled!

Apron Strings Guest Designer

First up for my exciting news for the new year is that I am a guest designer for the Apron Strings blog. I love Lori's kits and I got to play with the January'11 Smaller than a bread box kit.

Here is my first layout, featured here. I made it with the My Mind's Eye - Fine and Dandy - packet.
Everything you see is from the kit -- except the title, which uses American Crafts Thickers brown Poolside foam stickers.

Happy Holidays

I have lots of exciting news I'm not allowed to tell, so I'll just show another recycled card I made:
LilyBee paper from the November'10 Scrapcetera kit. For the stitching I used the new Sew Easy piercer, mat, floss and needle -- the name says it all, I'm loving it!

Here is another layout from our day at the science museum. I made one for each boy instead of combining them, just in case I decide to separate the LOs in the "random photos" album into individual albums for each boy. I have categories of albums: travel, birthdays, and "random photos". When I started the "random photos" album, I was going to scrap only family pictures (i.e. both boys together), but sometime throughout this last year I started adding LOs of them individually. Now I just scrap all the pictures I like ;)
I used the Country Home July'10 kit I won at Color me Miki. I love the American Crafts - Tree House - collection! Alphas from my stash. I based this LO on the sketch challenge #2 at Get Picky, but I did not have time to post it before the deadline...
Vol 4, #6

What a fabulous idea! I've been lucky enough to win several blog candys and I'm trying to clean out my stash. I would probably include a lot of stampin up stamps in my giveaway since I don't use those much after I switched to acrylic stamps!
Jennybean, please e-mail me your address so I can ship you my box!

Thanks to all who played along, and watch out for Jennybean's box at her blog Life of Reilly.
