These two albums are exactly the same, just different color ribbon. I made these for some of my neighbors. The theme I was going with these are to look like "packages" Hence the brown paper bag, and the star shaped stamp paper. They are military spouses I am giving them to. I used cereal boxes, paperbags, ribbon, and colored cardstock. Very simple project. I actually made 3 tonight, but I'm saving the last for another post, as I'm going to add photos to it for my husbands mother. I entered these in the following challenges: Penny Challenges, Creative Inspirations challenge blog, Stamp, scrap, & Doodle Saturdays!

This card I used die cuts, stamps, ribbon, and liquid glass. I think it's cute, but something seems off. Maybe I should have used different color ribbon? Unsure what it is. This has been entered in Crazy 4 challenges, Practical Scrappers, Secret Crafter, and Simon Says.
This card I used CTMH stamps, ink, and liquid glass. I think this is the first card that I didn't "glue" something on. At first I thought it to be kind of "naked" but I don't think its so bad now. Entering this card in Tuesday Taggers. It's not a decorated christmas tree, but a tree in christmas weather. Hope that counts!
This weekend I expanded my crafting past paper. I took a 3 hour class a few weeks ago to learn to make jewelry. So I bought some stuff from wal-mart this week and went to work. Both of these happen to be gifts for my neighbors. I'm entering this in the challenge over at Creative Inspirations challenge blog. Sorry the picture didn't turn out so well. Very cool in person tho!

Hello Everone! I've found now that I started my new work from home job 3pm till 12am, that I just have no time to do any scrapping during the week anymore! GASP! Goodthing they make weekends lol! So this afternoon I was scrolling through looking for challenges and I found 8! Omg I couldn't beleive it! Four of them are all Halloween themed which directed me to create this page for my ARMY book that I shared last post. The previous weekend Angel and I went to my husbands brigades Fall festival. Angel dressed as Tinkerbell. We had hotdogs and candy, we had photos taken of us, and pumpkin painting. It was a BYOP bring your own pumpkin. The middle pumpkin in the bottom right corner is the pumpkin my daughter painted. After it dried we put these plastic face pieces on it to make a cat! I thought it was cool that all three pumpkins happen to have a face! The pictures above were taken by the lady dressed as Snow White! I thought Snow White and Tinkerbell should be in a photo together so I took it with her camera! So for Challenges.... Creative Inspiration challenge wants to see some numbers, PC, Polka, Creative Inspirations, and Tuesday Tagger are all Halloween Themed. C4C is Geometric, Color Throw Down wants to see the colors Pomegrante, celery, and teal. Finally Unscripted gave me the sketch! Whew! I almost feel guilty using one page for all 8, but at the same time I'm like YAY THIS ROCKS!

Unscripted Sketches #27 sketch challenge. I added the pictures on the side, but the rest of the sketch goes along. Creative Inspirations is about family! Scrap and Stamp wants to know what we are thankful for. I am thankful that their are people willing to support and greet troops no matter the weather condition or time of day or night! I am thankful these people have a site to post photos for the family and friends to view! People like that make all the differences!

I decided to try something different for this project. I'll be honest I couldn't for the life of me think of what I could make Penny since she has made just about most things you could make papercraft wise lol... So I picked up some onsale coasters. Two different sets. I mix matched them. I used these stars that I found in my stash that are made to rub on hard surfaces. After doing so I put one coat of Modge Podge and three coats of Acrylic Sealer. I didn't test them out so I pray it works lol...

It may be hard to tell in this photo, but in person it's a nice card! The background red paper has snowflakes stamped in white. The four corners have a tiny diamond in the middle and liquid glass on them. The snowflake with the diamond on the bell is an embellishment that was in my stash so I have no Idea who made it, but it's very pretty! As you can tell I distressed the edges of the card with cranberry. The letters SN&W are letters I traced and cut out of snowflake paper.
