Homecoming Scrapbook Layout

I created my daughter's Homecoming scrapbook layout on Studio J using the Bliss digital paper pack.  I think it turned out really pretty.

I made this cute little calendar with the Close to my Heart January Stamp of the Month, Typeset paper and my Zutter Bind-it-All. I think it turned out really cute.

Pink Cowl Scarf

I made this really cute cowl scarf for my daughter Megan.  I made her pose with it right after a Daffodil Princess event so she still had her crown on.  She picked out the yarn and the pattern she wanted (its from Cathy Caron's "Cowl Girls" book).  I think it turned out really cute.  The bottom picture is a close up of the knit pattern.

Snow Layout with Flip Flaps

This is the layout we will be making in my Scrapbook Workshop this month.  It is made using the CTMH Wonderland paper and the Snowflakes stamp set.  You will need 6 4x6 photos and 6 3x3 photos.  The layout has the added feature of two 4x6 Flip Flaps on the right hand page.

Happy New Year Card

This card was made using the CTMH January Stamp of the Month and the Mischief paper.  It is stamped with the Sweet Leaf ink pad and then the Sweet Leaf ribbon was gathered and attached on the side with Glue Dots (just gather the ribbon by pulling on the white thread, just be carful not to pull the thread out).  We made this card yesterday at my card workshop.

You make me Smile card

This card was made using the CTMH Hooray Bouquet stamp set which has several flower images that coordinate with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  It has one of the Just Blooms paper butterflies sponged in Buttercup and then various buttons from the Blue assortment.  We made this card yesterday in my card workshop.

Cricut Scallop Card

This card was made using the CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge for the scallop circle card shape.  It also uses the CTMH stamp set A Sip and the Sonoma paper.  The spoon and cup were stamped separately then the spoon glued on and the cup attached with mounting tape.  We made this card and my card workshop yesterday.
