Grade 5 - First Day!

Here it is! Grade 5! Very excited to be part of madame Ann-France's Grade 5/6 group. A little teacher appreciation gift I put together: a little post-it note pouch, paper clip jar, pencil holder and not in the picture, a little coaster.

Razzle Dazzle Stamp Club

Here are a couple of projects for my Mother Daughter Stamp Club tomorrow night. Thought I would use the heck out of Razzle Dazzle because it is as versatile as Baroque Motifs.

Tri-Fold Shutter Card

I had been wanting to make one of these for the longest time.
It is super easy, just go to splitcoast and get the tutorial.
It's fun to see how everyone comes up with such different ideas.

August at Ausable Chasm

Here is a wonderful shot that was taken by Jade that demonstrates the beauty of that area. It was a beautiful morning on our way to Lake George, NY for a couple days of screamin' fun at the Great Escape.

Mini Pizza Box & Note Cards

I felt like doing a little kit yesterday, just simple matching cards with a matching little pizza box. I got the pattern for the box which I made in less than 10 minutes, from instructions I have had for a while by Jen del Muro. It is simply a 6"x11" piece of cardstock scored at 1" on either side of the 6" and 1, 5, 6 & 10" on the 11" side, and snipped on the edges. Super easy.
The note cards measure 3 1/2" x 7 1/2".

Used the Oval stamp set with Oval scallop punch, and on the VV cardstock, I used the very cute and colorful Razzle Dazzle Lemonade DP. The ribbon is the new in-color Crushed Curry.

My card for Kerin's challenge that you can find here. Her prize for this week is one yard each of the new In-color polka dot ribbon!

I used SU's Give Thanks stamp set for this challenge and watercolored on SU's WC paper. Not too keen on the inside of the card however, but some of the earlier stamp sets were difficult to cut and so often times I get that rubber mark and have to correct my error in the best way I can.

Oh and that big ol' button is from the Dollar Store from at least 3 years back!

Mojo Monday #98

Here is a card for this week's challenge. This is a pretty color combo, easy on the eyes. I used SU's Happy Harmony SS with markers and my MIL stamped the image. The DP is Bella Bleu.

A fun little card using Ellzybell stamp. This was a fun challenge because of all the layering and again I used SU's watercolor paper which has changed the way I want to stamp. You can check Kerin's blog here for more fun challenges and other great ideas. She also has a great Make-n-Take kit for sale, everything pre-cut - just add the stamping. Check her out!
