Finally, a scrapbook page...

I made this page about 5 minutes at a time (Luke hasn't been feeling much like letting me scrap lately) but I like how it turned out. I think I do a lot better when I can sit in the room for a couple hours and shut the door, though.

The big picture is probably my favorite of Luke so far. His chubby cheeks get me every time.

Love you card

Hello out there! Just wanted to quickly share another card I made last week. I recently got my Distressed Stripes and A Little Argyle stamp sets from Papertrey Ink and I felt like messing around with them. I grabbed three colors of ink and just dove in. Once I had both of my patterned pieces created, I thought I ought to do something with them, and this card is what came out of it:
The sentiment is from Daily Designs, and the background for the sentiment is from For the Graduate with the coordinating Mat Stack Die.

Thanks for looking! I'll be sharing what I'm dubbing my "birthday book" in a few days...

Yet Again!

I'm on a card making roll these days. I needed a card for my Uncle's birthday and of course, I forgot to mail it out on time. But here it is anyway, I suppose I can save it for next year!

This one was from Papertrey Ink's "Men of Life" stamp set. I also used their tin types impression plate (for the background of the sailboat), along with the Happy Birthday sentiment from the "Women of Life" set.

Another card

Hello to all of you who may or may not be reading. I don't have much to jibjab about yet, just another card to share!

This was another easy one- I just cut strips of my favorite Lush papers by My Mind's Eye and used my border punch on them. Then I layered them on top of each other after inking the edges. The stamp is a $1 find at M's. I just stamped it on two patterns, cut them out, stamped on my base and then reassembled the pieces.
Thanks for looking!
