May Cards

I've been working on my cards for May - decided to a set of his and her's cards - using the greeting from the May SOM - both have folded designs on them rather than stamping using some of the great patterned paper from CTMH.
For May these cards will count as one project so still have 2 share. Watch out later this week for the others.

I will teach these cards in all my clubs for May.

Eleanor Plays in Honor Recital

Have to brag about my daughter today - I know nothing to do with paper crafting but there you go she's my only daughter and she made me proud today. Last weekend she had a piano competition and got the top rating which meant she got to play in todays recital. Thought I'd share the movie I made.

Quick Simple Saves the Day

Sometimes one needs a quick and simple card which will work. So this is what I came up with. Granted I didn't come up with the total idea myself - I found the general idea from another Consultant Lisa Stenz but I changed out the stamps and made it even a little simpler that hers.

Its all done on textured card stock. The stamp sets are the next two months SOMs. I can see me making many of these cards in multiple versions and colors.

Imagine - Zoo Pages

Had the Cherish/Imagine Class today. Its one of my favorites as we're all friends have some time to make scrapbook pages. Its scrapbook therapy really as we all get to catch-up with what going on with every ones life and issues!
I was working on Zoo pages today ready for some pictures from our summer trip last year. So this evening I have worked on getting some of the pictures on the pages and adding some embellishments. The layouts in Cherish and Imagine are so great because you can really make your pictures fit easily even when you did the layouts with no reference to the pictures you had. This layout was meant to have 3 much smaller pictures than I added plus one large picture which I didn't have. The orientation of the elephant and the kids worked together so then I had to come up with something to tie them together and because I love elephants and think they are cute did a comparison of cuteness statement - and pulled the page together with just this sub-title.
I was also finally able to do some sewing on my page as I got the sewing machine fixed. The machine was a 21st birthday gift which hadn't been used in a while so needed just a once over at the repair shop. It works really well and I will be doing more and more sewing I'm sure on my pages as its so much fun to do. I recommend sewing highly to everyone as a great addition to the scrapbooking tools.
