6x6 photo holder scrapbook

OK, these are ALL out of order. But I think you'll get the idea! It's a photo scrapbook album. I used the Scrappin Kit from Stampin Up Just 4 You. It's retired, but I thought it would make a REALLY cute album! I think I'll whip up one or two to sell on ebay. I'm also having this at one of my classes, we'll of course use current Scrappin Kits! The middle of the album has envelops "glued" together to make a little file folder. Those are filled with the cards to add your photos and journalling. I got this off of Amy Celona's blog. Boy I like to copy! I can't WAIT until the UPS man comes with my new stampin kits. I have so many plans for them!

Notecard Holder with Bella Rose

This is a note card holder using Bella Rose papers and Dreams De Jour stamp set. I got the tutorial from Dannie's Designs, thanks Dannie! These are SO cute and fun to make. There are 4 stamped envelopes on the left, and 4 stamped full size "notecards". They're 5 1/2 x 4 1/4", the same size as a full size card. Perfect for gift giving! This project will be available at one of my classes, coming soon! I still have to figure out what we're making and when....
Thanks for looking! Drop me a line if you want to make this or any other project. ;o) Long distance is easy too!

Bella Rose Purse Scrapbook

OK, I found a tutorial for this by Jan Tink, she is SO awesome for posting this for others to make! Her blog is: http://www.stampspaperscissors.typepad.com/ I used Bella Rose DSP by Stampin Up, actually the WHOLE thing is made with Stampin Up supplies, and this will be offered in one of my future classes! So fun to make. Above is the outside and front of the purse. The only stamp I used for the outside was Boho Backgrounds, stamped in Ridinghood Red.

I ended up using a ton of stamp sets, I just picked my favorites from all kinds of different sets: Smarty Pants, One of a kind, Baroque Motifs, Priceless, Dreams DeJour, Totally Tabs. Whew. Most of the stamping was done with Chocolate chip. Cardstock: Old Olive, Pink Pirouette, Ridinghood Red, Chocolate Chip and White. There are 2 pink pull out tags too.

And Lucky, my newest "helper" when I stamp. She came with the new house. ;o)
***excuse the layout of this blog, I have NO idea what I'm doing and can't get the pictures and descriptions to look right. I'm hopeless!

4th of July pages

Here are 2 pages that I posted on ebay. (My ID is 10inkyfingers) I used the retired SU set Stars and Swirls. I love that set, too bad they retired it! The strip next to My Little Firecracker is Red Duo Beads from Stampin Up adhered with sticky strip. The firecracker title was done with a font on my computer. Fun pages to make!


Here's some other cards I've made recently. The baby onsie card was SO easy! I just hand cut the arm and the "body" of the card. I punched out holes with 1 3/8" circle. To make the scallops: Punch out a circle on white card stock using 1 3/8" circle. Then use your scallop punch to punch OVER the CUT OUT circle on the white cardstock, it'll make the lace for your onsie! Ok, contact me if you need help, it's not easy to explain! I used Seeing Spots SU stamp set.

Prehistoric pals

I've been dying to do something with this dino set! We made this card at my stamp a stack. The card base is Black, the grass is Kiwi Kiss, the sky is Baja Breeze. It was a lot of cutting tiny dinosaurs, but I think worth it in the end!

I moved!

Oh my goodness, we moved on July 3rd, and it took us almost 2 months to get a PHONE and internet hook up. Talk about some serious withdrawls. I'm going to get some stuff posted on here, it's been forever! The box is one that I copied off SPS, we made them at my openhouse last Friday, it went over great everyone loved it! And its SO easy to make. It's called the 3x3 box and holds 3x3 notecards. How cute! I'll have to take a photo of my new house, I haven't done that yet! Oh, the paper used is Bella Rose, you HAVE to put in on your wish list! It's amazingly beautiful!!
