Mixed media scrapbook page

This is the first time I've used mixed media on my scrapbook layout.  I was inspired by Evi, from Life with Evi's youtube channel.  I have to say I love the look of mixed media, (thanks to Evi and Kati), but I have been terrified to try.  This picture has already been scrapped in one of my other albums so I figured I would give it a try. The embellishments are pretty simple, they came from a chipboard collection I received at the Crop and Create in Cornwall a year or two ago.  I used water colour paint from Michaels.  The pattern paper is from 3 different 6 x 6 packs I had lying around.  I used my typecast typewriter by WRMC.  I also used my Cricut to cut the word Bro's.  I used Gesso on the white paper and then just splattered paint, drying the paper between each colour.

Happy anniversary card

This is the card I made for my parents anniversary this year. The card was made using stampin up ups a daisy stampset,  I used one colour of ink and I stamped off to make the two-tone affect the card was very simple I  just added some pattern card stock to the base added some dollar store ribbon and stamped the sentiment which was from a Inkadoo stampset.

Happy Birthday Cake Card

This card was another card I made for a co-worker who celebrated a birthday last week.  The scallop border was from Art Philosophy, and the legs for the cake stand came from Stretch your Imagination, (I used the slice feature to get just the legs and not the rest of the image. I then just make rectangles and used a corner rounder to round the corners of the cake pieces.  The sentiment came from Stampin Up.  The papers used were from an old 6 x 6 paper pack.  Sequins and jewels were from the dollar store.

Nifty Fifty Birthday

Well April is a busy month at work.  I had 3 people having birthdays.
The last birthday was for my former boss, he changed positions in the corporation but still works out of my office.  I don't know about you but I have such a hard time with male cards.  I went on a youtube hunt for inspiration and found a card by Edna Marie.  The link to her video is below.

This was simple to make.  I used stampin up black card stock, and then the rest of the paper was from recollections.  I used a stampset from the dollar store for the sentiments on the card.  I have to say I am quite impressed, I paid $2.00 for this set, and I love it. Ink was from My Pink Stamper.

The card base is 7 X 4.75 (I messed up on the measurements).  For the musical notes I covered them in glossy accents.

Here is the video

Easter treat boxes.

Hi Everyone,

Wow its been over a month since I've posted anything.  I have a ton of photo's to make and post.  Since Easter is next week I thought I'd start with some of the Easter things I've been making.

The first up is the Fry box.  For this box I used the Tags Bags Boxes and More 2 cartridge.  From basic shapes I used the circle and created a circle and the ovals.  I also used from Art Philosophy the scalloped circle for the bunny tail, I cut the leaves from creative bug.  I stamped the box with stampin up hardwood stamp in soft suede. I inked the edges of all the bunny pieces with soft suede and then added two layers of glitter glue to the tail.

I used flowers from the dollar store and some brads.

My children did find this size of box to be too small, so I did create the treat box in a bigger size.
