Celebration Album

So this last weekend I had the urge to create something different, something that maybe I had done something like in the past but something I had not done in a LONG time.  So I set to make a card/album/folder.   Now this is a little bigger than your average card, it is basically 8.5x 5.5.
 I can't even recall the paper- it was in a stack of 12x12 that I have had for a long time and just never used.  I adore the colors of baha blue, celery and a little brown in there.  I just could not help adding that striped ribbon either and just scrunched it up as it went down the side of the album.  The sentiments in this project are from Verve.
So this image is a little bit closer and you can actually see the little dots that I made with the plastics last year,  I am very surprised at how well all the different colors match all my different projects. 

And then a picture of the inside of my album/folder. On the left side both are little pockets that I build to hold either little gift cards or little notes/tags.   On the right there are little slide in pockets (x2), alittle bit bigger things could be tucked in here.  I picture this as a graduation card/folder and you tuck in some memories, gift cards, maybe a series of little pictures.  Or it could be a card/folder for someone turning 40!  All your friends send you little notes or photos of memories of you..... something like that.  

I would love to hear what you all would do with something like this!  I am considering opening my Etsy store back up and trying to sell some of these little memory makers.

Simple to Say

Is this the sweetest card?  I used a verve stamp set and just randomly stamped the flowers- leaving a spot for the sentiment.  So simple and easy to make- I love how bright and cheerful it is.  I think that I will make a few of these and give the as a little gift set.

Starling Birthday!

Now I can't honestly recall what I made this card for but guessing to build up my supply of Birthday Cards.  I love these colors although the card design is very simple.

Delightful Posey


This particular card is made after a card that I received a couple of years ago and always just loved it.  I had alot of fun making the flowers, made about 25 of them so I could have them on hand, in different colors of course.  The flowers/stamps are from Verve

And then of course, in a little maize and blue!

This sentiment stamp and heart border are both R.C.

April Reverse Confetti

Oh, hello! 

I cannot believe it has been over a month since I have posted anything!  I have not done a great deal of crafting but I do have a few things to show off.  I was up very early the other morning and couldn't sleep so thought I would go back to my trusted monthly challenge over at Reverse Confetti 

Come and join us!

Window Hello!

This card is a little different than a couple of the other ones I have made this month for the Reverse Confetti March Sketch but it is still keeping with the sketch.   They challenged us to think outside of the box and turn it around a bit- so this is the sketch upside down and then I also used a more squarish shape.  As you can see though, there is still a little peek a boo window.
