Red Rose Card

I made this card months ago with my scrap stash and colored this vibrant RED rose with the BIC markers set I have, then added the CTMH Liquid Glass for the glossy shiny effect in parts of the image(bits here and there).
Then this week my husband's friend needed a THANK YOU card to be given to an old lady. And this one was picked from my cards box. It's a simple card but enough to say the words.

Glad I could help, it was a last minute thing.

Notepad and mini calendar holder

This is a notepad and calendar holder I made a week ago for my friend Brenda. I wanted to create something simple and fun to give her as a little treat but yet functional. I know she likes rooster then I found this notepad set with rooster image to fit and match in colors with the CTMH new Veranda papers(from the 2010 Spring collection) .
Added a Pewter Designer brad for a fancy touch look to the closure.

Supplies are all from CTMH - except the notepad and calendar!

Inchies - fun to make

Sharing these inchies I made(the picture #2) - so easy and fast - for another swap(the picture #1, made from swap group participants) ... well, I was quite involved in swaps lately - will need a break to make some of my own projects!
Inchies are really fun to play with. Have plans for making more with some cute stamps I got and haven't used yet.

Good night!

scrapbook pages layout swap

Good evening!
These pages were made for a swap I was in back to November'09.
The whole layout is quite simple - just few details - with a big "pocket" to put in additional items (memorabilia) such like flight tickets or postcards. And three tag holders to write down the holiday's annotations. I wanted to simplify so the person to use these pages could go ahead and add her own accents, with plenty of spaces to personalize it.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart.
Sorry for the yellowish picture. I'm really on my way to get and share more clear and better shots.

That's for now. Off to organize tomorrow's to-do list.

How are you enjoying the new days of the year?

Today is a "numerically" outstanding day by what it shows. Sometimes I like to observe these little details that could be added to a project as a fun accent in the form of a tag or label.

Here I'm sharing two 6"x 6" layout I made back in November for another SWAP I joined. It was such a great experience as the hostess did a wonderful job. I chose 2 of my favorite scriptures - Psalm 23:13 and I Corinthians 16:13-14 - for each of these layouts. They were made to be put in a 6" x 6" display album (total of 24 pages from CTMH). All supplies from CTMH except the verses. The first is from Stampendous and the other was laser printed.

Have more ideas for next months to share in here. Be sure to come back and check!
