Baby's First Year Mini Scrapbook & Card – December Bonus Project!

Today is my last day posting all of the wonderful creations I've shown you from Craft Project Central for the month of December.  I had a fun time creating my masculine watercolored cards  and posting collages of what the other ladies created too.  If you would like to buy all the projects for the month of December you can still do that and the price is very reasonable!  Click HERE to check it out.  One last thing before you read about the bonus project...I did offer all of the projects this month for free to one winner and was supposed to post the winner Sunday, but sadly no one took me up on my offer so I thought I would just mention it today.  What's a girl to do?  I tried. :)  And now onto the last project for you and it's a good one.  Make sure you read under the picture to see how you can get this project.

If you've got a new baby in the family, or a friend has had a baby, then you really should make this mini scrapbook for them. This mini scrapbook is a great little keepsake for the baby's first year. There is room for a picture of the baby for each of its first twelve months, along with two pockets to put little keepsakes in. This scrapbook shows a new way to use the Project Life Baby Girl Card Collection and Hello Baby Accessory Pack. It also features the Hello Baby Stamp Set. It can be customized for a baby boy by using the Project Life Baby Boy Card Collection instead. This would also make a great Project Life Class.

Watercolor Ornament

I have a second post today that I wanted to show you.  I've been patiently waiting until I had time to try my hand at a little more watercoloring.  Dina over on Splitcoaststampers had a tutorial a few weeks ago on a watercolored ornament card.  Her card is beautiful and she has a step-by-step tutorial and a video you can watch.  Yes, she makes it look so easy!  I tried it with the three ornaments first, just to get a feel for it.  I didn't think it turned out too bad for my first try, but I never finished putting it together since I had to get a card made that I could give to my dad and that one just wasn't the right one.   Every year he asks me to make a card for my mom that he can give her, and of course it has to pass my inspection!  I'm not a perfectionist or anything! lol  


As I was looking through the blogs I follow I saw that the Color Throwdown has "any christmas creations, any colors" challenge this time around, so I thought I'd play along.




I'm also putting it into Splitcoaststampers' gallery.  If you make a creation from one of their tutorials you can upload it into that particular gallery.


Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Snow Day Fun!

Today I have another super cute project to show you from Buffy Cooper.  You can check it out HERE at Craft Project Central. 

Snow Day Fun!



It’s 10 a.m. on a snow day. The snow is piling up outside and doesn’t look like it’s going to stop, and then you hear those three dreaded words – “Mom, I’m bored.” Keep your children entertained with this Snow Day Fun set. Use the Stampin’ Up! Snow Place bundle to create mix and match elements that will cling to the scenic background board. It’s simple enough for older children to create for younger siblings or neighbors, and smaller children will enjoy mixing the pieces to create cute snow scenes. Best of all, it’s durable enough to stand up to hours of use by tiny fingers. If you don’t have children, you can create this project for a friend who does and make a young child’s day. Instructions for a storage/gift box and a coordinating card are included. This would make a fun class for moms so they’ll be ready for that first snow day!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Beautiful Birthday

Yes, this is my second post today.  I happened to have two projects that needed posting, so I just went with it. :)  I created this card using Try Stampin' on Tuesday's sketch challenge #250 and made it for my niece's birthday.  I remember hearing that she always get winter cards, so I had to make her a nice spring/summer card.  I also had to try a bit more "water coloring".  I couldn't resist and was pretty happy with how it turned out. :)


Make sure you head over to Try Stampin' on Tuesday HERE to see the other great cards created by the design team.  Looks like I forgot the theme to use metal on my card.  That is optional so I still pass...whew! lol

.


Just a couple more pics to check out.  Wish I could get the pictures to look like the card actually does.  I think I need to haul out my light box again AND get the lights that I need to keep things nice and bright when I'm trying to take pictures.

Handbag Card Set!

Everyone needs some pretty colors and flowers to get them through the cold winters, and this card set would definitely cheer them up! The cards are stored in a cute little handbag with pretty Antique Brads on the handles. The handbag can hold eight cards and envelopes. This tutorial includes two card designs made with the Remarkable You Stamp Set, and four of each design can be made to fill up the handbag. This would make a perfect gift, and a great class project.

This lovely set was created by Christy Fulk and can be purchased (or won) at Craft Project Central HERE.

Merry Christmas Ornaments

The beginning of December I posted a card with an ornament that I had made using the negative pieces of both a red and green ornament from the Delicate Ornaments Thinlits Dies.  I had both ornaments sitting on my card desk waiting to be used, so that's exactly what I did!  I made two of the same card, just reversed the colors and used the sketch over at Craft Project Central HERE.  It's a clean a simple sketch and I love it!  




I love how these cards turned out, but I have to admit it was kind of hard to get a decent picture with the silver in the ornaments reflecting the light! lol  The silver that I used came from the Stampin' Up! kit Cottage Greetings.  They had silver foil envelope liners and I though to myself, "No way am I going to line those envelopes with that!  They're just going to get thrown away!".  I knew I could use it on some Christmas cards and that's exactly what I did. :)

“English Garden” Box & Cards!

Need a fantastic, useful, and attractive gift for someone special?  You will enjoy making this project, and the recipient will cherish it!  Create six pockets to hold an assortment of cards, a box to hold the pockets, and this tutorial also includes instructions for six assorted—coordinating—greeting cards to start filling the pockets.  Once you give this box of cards to a special someone, don’t forget to replenish the cards throughout the year on holidays, special occasions, or just because.  This ensemble would be great for a stamp camp.

Beauty of the Season

I'm late!  I'm late! For a very important date!  Well I'm not really late for an important date, but I sure am late for my Try Stampin' on Tuesday post.  I logged on to check out our next sketch thinking I'd be working ahead a little bit only to find out I was LATE! Not sure how I missed it, but thankfully I created a card for my winter stamp a stacks that is pretty similar to today's sketch and the optional theme is snowflakes.  


Make sure you stop by Try Stampin' on Tuesday HERE to check out what the other designers created.  If you get a chance to play along we'd love to see what you create!




As you can tell I used a retired stamp set and retired framelits.  Sometimes it's just nice to pull out some of the older stuff I have and see what I can create with them, especially when it comes to making Christmas cards.  I used to make the same one for everyone, but that isn't the case anymore.  It's nice to have a variety to send out. :)

Winter Holiday Punch Art Tag Set!

Today I'm posting the second project from Craft Project Central.  These cute holiday punch art tags were created by Yapha Mason and you can find the tutorial for them at Craft Project Central.  Just a reminder that I am giving away one FREE monthly subscription for the month of December to Craft Project Central.  That's 10 tutorials for free!  I will give you all the details mid December.  :)


Punch art is a fun way to create images that you may not have stamps for, as well a great way to get extra mileage out of your punches. In this project we will create punch art images for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and New Year’s Eve. Each of these images is part of a cute tag, and all of the tags fit nicely in a decorative box. Includes a matching card for gift giving. These fun punch art designs are great for a club or a class, or just a fun winter afternoon of crafting.

Thinking of You at Christmas

So how are your Christmas cards coming?  I hope better than mine are since I really have no idea if I have enough or not! lol  I'm just trying to figure out when I'm going to get the time to sit down and get them all ready to mail out!  I guess I'll manage since I always do.  I'm just glad I'm a part of the design team at 'Tis the Season since I know I have a good chunk ready to go...whew!  Speaking of 'Tis the Season we are having our last challenge of the year and it's inspiration challenge #56!  I love how this card turned out, but I sure can tell you I won't being doing this one three more times!  What was I thinking?!?!


I love this picture and I was inspired by the gold, red and green as you can tell by my card.  Make sure you head over to 'Tis the Season HERE to see how the other designers were inspired by this photo.  If you get a chance we'd love to have you play along too.




Even though my card is a CAS card it wasn't simple to make.  Actually it wasn't difficult, it was just time consuming!!  I used Stampin' Ups! Delicate Ornaments Thinlits Dies and cut one out of Whisper White, another out of Cherry Cobbler and the last one out of Garden Green.  I then used VersaMark and stamped it all over the Whisper White ornament, covered it with gold embossing powder and of course used the heat gun on it.  Then I cut out a solid ornament in Whisper White with that same shape, covered the whole piece with Stampin' Glue Stick and put the gold ornament over the top of the white solid ornament.  The next part is what took SO long!  I popped out the pieces of the red and green ornament and put them into the gold ornament and they would stick because of the glue stick on the solid white ornament piece underneath.  I started from the middle and worked my way out deciding as I went along what color I would put in next.  I did NOT punch all the little pieces out of the red and green ornaments right away, but instead took the ones I needed for the color I was working on.  That means I only popped out between two and four at a time.  Have fun figuring out that puzzle if you pop them all out at once! lol
