Goodbye July!

 To celebrate this last weekend in July, here are a few patriotic cards I made.  The images are digital stamps from Tiddly Inks that I printed and colored with my colored pencils.  I layered them with some red, white, and blue paper I had.  The words are all rub-ons that I first put on white cardstock and then stuck onto the card using pop-dots.  The girl also has some ribbon.  Slow down summer - you are going too fast! Enjoy your weekend!

Bee Mine

It's never too early to think about Valentine's Day or school parties.  This is a black clip bought from Office Max.  I cut out the bee and the heart from the Create a Critter catridge and then layered them on the front of the clip.  Then I printed out "Bee Mine" and the name from my computer and layered those with matching paper. The saying at the bottom is attached with pop dots and the name at the top is removable so you can add notes or any other sentiment you might want.  This would be so cute sitting on a desk.

The inspiration for this project was to create something for Valentine's Day that used blue as it's main color.  I used some blue paper and covered a small clipboard. Then I used my Cricut machine to cut out the blue bird, the "tweet" and the hearts.  I layered them all together and added a button on the bird and a flower with an extra button on the top.  The very top of the clipboard is covered with some ribbon.  Maybe I will save this for my tweetheart!

 Lately I have been submitting a lot of projects to magazines for publication.  No takers yet!  Here is one I created with some photos from last summer.  I wanted to recreate the water slide on  my pages, so I used some foam board and ribbon going across both pages.  There were lots of photos so I cropped my favorites in different sizes and backed them with the same colors as the water slide.  The "SPLASH" is a giant sticker and I cut out the date with my Cricut using the Mickey Font.  The final touch was some journaling in the corner.  Makes me want to dive right in!
