Birthday Card for a Friend

Here is a birthday card I made for a friend. It also worked for the Studio G Challenge #7 over at Paper Craft Planet Studio G Collectors

I stamped the cupcake image multiple times on different printed papers, cut the parts out and layered it back together with some pop dots for dimension. This is a really fun and easy technique. Give it a try some time!
The inside sentiment uses 3 different Studio G clear stamps. I LOVE the tiny cherry border!

If you ask me for a picture...

If you ask a crafter for a picture of their cartridge storage, she will tell you she has to clean up the creative clutter first. While she is cleaning up the clutter, she might find a blank board book that needs to go on the shelf. While putting the book on the shelf she might spy a box of vintage styled valentine lacing cards. Upon inspecting the box she will think,"these will be perfect to make into a little book for my little girls to bring to church to play with quietly." The crafter will then procede to measure the cards and set up her Bind-It-All, cut the chipboard covers and commence to make a book. After completing the little lacing card book, and admiring her handiwork, she might think that she needs to do this with the full size lacing cards and go upstairs to the bedroom closet and get those out. When she returns to her desk she may remember that she had also bought some animal flash cards which she intended to make a book from, and procede to punch the pages and make the custom chipboard cover. She might take a break from the exhausting "cleaning" and get her girls some lunch and down for a nap. After the girls are down, she might want to get on the computer to check her email again. When she checks her email there will be a message, similar to the one that follows:

"wow you must be talking to your dust bunnies as you clean lol"

THEN she will remember to take the picture of the shelves that was requested 2 hours ago and email the friend back with an explaination as to why it took so long...And then it may come to her attention that the explaination would be a funny blog post!

Here is the shelf:

Happy Mother's Day

My guest designer/sister designed these super sweet mothers day post cards for her boys to give to Mom-mom. The quotes are printed on sky blue vellum, overlaying a sepia toned photograph. She hand wrote the quotes on plain paper and ran the vellum through her photocopier/scanner/printer to print. The sky was amazing the other day and she took advantage of it. She held the boys up in the air and photographed them on the sky and clouds background. It really is a neat effect, angelic children floating through the sky! What could be more sweet?
