Valentines Card using Grunge blocks

Happy Friday!!

Today I would am dropping in quick to show you a unusual Valentines card I made for a friend of mine. I was inspired by a layout in "Card Maker's Magazine"

How I made this card:
  • Cut dark tan card stock at 5" by 8" (this will be your card base) 
  • Stamp a flourish only on the bottom and left side with brown distress ink and ink the edges as well using blending tool.
  • Take 6 grunge blocks by Tim Holtz's Idea-ology the same size and drop random drops of  alcohol inks, I used three different colors. (Ginger,Caramel and Latte). Then ink around the edges and top of grunge square with brown distress ink. At the edges add just a touch of black distress ink to make the brown look darker.
  • Add embellishments!
Have a wonderful weekend!!!!

  Free digital Turtle (could be used for Valentine's!)  

If you are here for the first time welcome!, and also a big welcome to you my loyal followers. I would love to take a minute to express my gratitude for the amazing support I have been receiving on this amazing adventure learning and sharing what I do with all of you since I started out blogging. Just know I wouldn't have come this far if it weren't from the encouragement, inspiration and ongoing loyalty, also know I appreciate each and every one of you.

Today,I would love to share my "Happy happy Birthday" card!! This card is for Troy's mom, she is such a beautiful soul .
I used my new Recollections Cling on Stamps and Recollection flowers from my last haul at Michael's!! Isn't that elephant gorgeous?!!! 
I used a Martha Steward edge punch for the sides and the matching corner punch for the corners. I place pink 1' squares behind each corner.

 I tried my best to color and give it justice but I still cling to the thought maybe I am just not cut out to color but oh boys I find any challenge fun so you will have to watch me eventually morph into a great color-er. (Is that even a word? mmm?)

Have a fantastic day!!!!!

Mini Paper Bag Album

Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!! Michael was at his best for he got to see Alex, Coralee's son.
Coralee and I got a chance to catch up and really enjoyed our time together. 

Today I am showing you a paper bag album that I started before I moved my craft room, it got misplaced therefore forgotten about but as I was digging through my boxes in the basement I found it and decided to finish it! I will be filling this album with pictures of Michael.
I didn't take a picture of every page but you get the idea!

I inked all the pages with brown black distress ink along with the tags that each have a flower added to the top so they can be easily pulled out. The tags are also inked on both sides. Tags are fantastic to add a journal or pictures! I don't remember where I found the paper bag tutorial because it has been too long but there are many on youtube!

Each page has flaps and slots to add tags, tickets etc.This makes the album fun for whoever is looking at it!

Have a terrific day!!!
