Celebrate - Simple Card

This is a super simple card with a big effect. Stamp any small stamp in a line near the top and then draw a ling around the card. Add a few sparkles to dress it up and bit and you're done. I got this idea from another consultant but can't remember who to give them credit. I adapted the card to fit my needs.

Pinwheels Galore

Making pinwheels is all the rage and oh so easy. Take a square and cut in on all of the diagonal corners toward the center (don't cut all the way to the center). Fold every other corner toward the center to make the pinwheel. Now add a button or brad or fun center to finish. These are great on cards or layouts and can be made to any size.

8 is Great

This layout will be used for my son's 8th birthday pictures. I utilized several products and techniques on this one. There are star dimensional elements and the great eclectic dimensional elements. I used an envelope template where I can add in additional hidden pictures or journaling. To jazz up the white paper I mixed Cranberry reinker and with water in our spray pens. You get a different effect time you use it. It's a great way to make your own paper!

Stamping with Paint

This is a fun card using the Mayberry paper pack. I used pearl paint mixed with Olive re-inker to stamp the pear. This gives the stamped image a shiny effect. It's hard to tell in the picture but it's a really great effect.

Studio J - Scaling embellishments

On this Studio J layout I used the My Stickease to jazz up some of the blank space. You can scale up the embellishments as much as 200%.

Studio J borders

Another Studio J layout. I am using this to help me catch up and it's working! I can do a layout in about 30 minutes. Just think, you can get a scrapbook layout done on your lunch hour (maybe even 2 of them)!

Notice that the border on the top left of the picture on the left page and bottom right of the strip of pictures on the right page is made up of stacked buttons. The borders on the My Stickease just weren't working for me so I made my own.
