Sorry, tonight I put my time towards scrapbooking. Jeff & I spent some time sorting pictures so we think we have all of Anchorage AK together. Then I can go get pictures made of the ones I want to scrap. Problem I fell asleep at the key board again. My excuse is I had to work today. Anyway because I didn’t finish picking out pictures I didn’t get my posting for tonight out. Sorry. Off tomorrow & will try.
I had taken this piece of red paper & punched leafs for a fall card I had made. I used a Martha Steward leaf punch. I noticed that the paper was about the size of a card. So I attached some yellow card stock to the back. Stamped Thanks on the front & attached it to a premade card. I just had to cut it down a little. The inside is blank.
I’m never going to finish the last page of The Wild Animal Sanctuary. After procrastinating all day even to the point of having Jeff check Safeway when he went shopping, I went to get a roll of double-sided permanent tape at Michael’s in Greeley. I get home & find I got one-sided tape. Ugh!
Well, since I can’t work on my page I could work a little on the AK trip. 1st I need to take everyone’s pictures & put them in a time line.,,,
Sorry but I spent the night scrapbooking. Got 3 pages of the Animal Sanctuary done. Very plane but sometimes you just need to get the pictures documented & don’t have time for the fancy stuff. I have decided to go back on the Animal Sanctuary pages & add a little bling. This makes me feel better about the plane pages (7) I’m going to do. 3 down 4 to go. All are already planed out. It was easy you divide by animals (Lions, tigers, bears, wolf’s & camel that might end up on the wolf’s page. Not sure yet. Ok almost planed out Everything is subject to artistic privilege.
I’ll share that thank you card soon & then the Sanctuary pages. That is when I have time between work, doctor appointments & my BFF in town. We spent the day shopping. Some of which included getting green paper for the Sanctuary pages. Any way coming soon……
First I punched out several leaves using a Martha Steward leaf punch. I die cut out the tree in brown using Sizzix. I then attached the leaves to the tree. I die cut a circle in the premade card that I outlined with leaves. I stamped the Thank You. Taking a stamp about fall I used masking tape & taped off all but the Happy Fall. I then stamped that into the circle so you will see it on the inside & then outside. I glued on a small purple butterfly left over from other projects.
Not the best inside picture but enough that you can see I framed the inside of the cut window with leaves. I also attached on next to where the Happy Fall is stamped to cover a slight error
This is the 2nd card we made. Taking the premade card I attached a ribbon down the side. Framed the cut out with a yellow sticker frame. Added a couple of yellow jewels for bling.
Inside I goofed off. I took a pre cut and attached it to the pre cut square creating a lacy frame. Then I just used left over stickers & rub on’s.
Back from an Alaska cruise. Can’t wait to start to scrapbook the trip. Keep your eyes out as I will post the pages. I’m lucky enough to have booth my Brother, sister, sister-in-law & brother-in-law pictures. I take pictures with scrapbooking in mind & my sister with art in mind. My brother –in-law is great on face shots. My sister-in-law is great at the improv shot. My brother caught nature like the rest of us didn’t so I just can’t wait to scrapbook these pages.
In the mean time they had a card making class on the cruise one day. Of course I had to go. Here is one of the cards we made. My favorite one.
It came in a kit. So the Thank You is a sticker. It placed on a die cut & raised with pop dots. I took two pink jewels and attached them to the bottom left of the card.
Inside I used a rub on to attach the thank you in yellow. Then the kewl part. It looks like they took a frame, cut off one side & then I attached it to the card making a frame on the inside & a decorative outside to the card.
