Kitty Card

This was as stamp set that was a Stamp of the Month, that means it was available only for one month, this is the most sought after stamps set I've ever seen, it was very popular that month. I've used it several times. This card was made for someone that wanted a Kitty card to give to her sister.

Easter Basket Make-N-Takes

I did these for $1.00 for the pattern, all the components to make the basket and directions on how to put them all together. The women at Trace Creek Crop seemed to like them, I have a few more that I'm going to be a Vendor for that I'll bring the rest of the one's I've cut to those too. Anyway, here they are,,,,

Trace Creek Crop

Yesterday I went to Trace Creek Baptist Church for their Bi-Annual Crop, I love going there. I was a vendor and had make-n-takes which all were easter baskets, I'll try to post all these tomorrow. Someone saw me making cards for Soldiers and said that I should do that card as a make-n-take, so I agreed, here is the cards that I used for make-n-takes.

I had a little bit of time at the end of the day so I worked on more Cards for Soldiers, Here is a little about that project, my friend Elaine and I make and collect cards and if we just get card fronts we put them on white cardstock, pair them with a envelope and mail a large box at a time to a Chaplain of a troop that is stationed in Iraq or Afghanistan. Since we live close to Ft Campbell we personally know a lot of men and women that get stationed there, so we have no shortage of troops to send them too. Elaine and I supply a lot of envelopes, cardstock and basically all the supplies that go into make the cards and we pay to mail them, not that we mind, we do what we can, but donations are always appreciated, we love most card fronts, you know from the discontinued stamps samples you have in your books if your a demonstrator for a stamp company, we also love invitation sized envelopes, white and ivory cardstock and of course monetary donations. If you'd like to make some cards and send them or donate anything else I've listed, please e-mail me for my home address, I'd love to get something from you in the mail, and believe me the soldiers really love the cards to send back to their loved ones, One rule, no glitter, but you can make them a little lumpy/3-D. Anyway here is the other I card I designed and made this weekend, the front and the inside. It's hard to tell, but I popdotted the cup and the saying.

Simply Devine

I really like this set, it's very versitile, a couple of these are inspiration from other TAC Rep's, can't remember who to give credit to them.

Easter Cards

This set of cards uses the chick from Hoppity Skippity stamp set.

I used this card for a swap I was in, I used the score-pal to make scorelines, stampin up border punch, Gold Galaxy ink, Playful Parentisis stamped in gold ink.

I don't like this one as well, I used a corner punch to punch the square then sheer white ribbon.
I colored both chicks with prismacolor pencils and goo gone.

frog cards

Here are some from one of my favorite sets Hoppy Everything by The Angel Company, you can tell by how many cards I made that are posted today and tomorrow how much I like it.

You can't tell, but I used orange bazzill bling paper to make this one, it's beautiful IRL.

I used a hat pin on this one, it can be used for a male or female.

I left the sentiment off this one, will add it whenever I decide what to use it for.
More tomorrow,

Card I made last year

I was organizing (seems like this is an ongoing thing) and came across some cards I made last year so I thought I'd share them here. I'll post a few more this week, so keep checking back.

This card used a cupcake from the little cupcake set, and layers of black red and white. I put red stickles on the cherry.

I wanted a brown and pink card so I used the little cupcake set again, colored with prisma pencils and goo gone, I love the way the colors come together.

New Files at Paperthread, page layout and free file

Here is my 2 page layout based on my sketch from Jan 31 post. I just love trains, and we bought our grandson a train track for his 2nd birthday, I designed several pieces for trains before I decided which ones to use on his page, I think it turned out great.

Here are the files that are at Paperthreads under Train Set

P.S. Enjoy the free file
