This card was made with Kraft Cardstock and Willouby, a new collection that The Angel Company released with thier fall Catalog. The Tag is part of the collection. I stamped the Love and Laughter Tree and Sentiment using Versa Magic, Hint of Pesto and Jumbo Java.

The green printed stock was torn and then inked with jumbo java. For the Tag, I used a knot and an eyelet in Antique to put the ribbon through and put the tag on the card using pop dots.
Supplies Used:
Love and Laughter Stamp set - The Angel Company
Willouby Paper - The Angel Company
Jumbo Java Versa Magic
Hint of Pesto Versa Magic
Brown Cardstock

I am going to become a big fan of this paper. The picture just doesn't do this little number justice. I just couldn't get my light right. The background is brown and layered with Willoby dot and the green DP.. Then using my gloss stock I stamped the Love and Laughter Tree and sentiments using Versa Magic Hint of Pesto and Jumbo Java. I also tore the green cardstock and then inked with jumbo java. I also inked the edge of the gloss cardstock with the ink pads. Here I made sure to smudge it a bit. Keep a lookout I have another card like this going to post this week!

Meet Woodrow - My take on the matter

Above is a creation I did with leftover parts of the woodrow kit. I used a transparency, cut down to 4X4 and then using New Canvas Palette Ink I stamped the "Just for You" stamp from the level A set. The inside was created using a pocket from the kit and a tag that was also from the kit. The stamp in the middle is from Deco Designs.

I stamped the middle image in Burnt Umber. By the way the pocket will hold a gift card perfectly! Want to get this kit? Just email me and I will be happy to place an order for you. When you order this kit through me you will recieve a gift with purchase stamp.

Hey! Guess what??! Woodrow is not JUST a scrapbook kit. Did you know that if you only wanted to create 1 mini scrapbook you can still get use out of your kit by using the leftover pages as cards.

You can...especially if you use transparency for the fronts of your cards. Below is a sample that I did with one of the page inserts. I used only items from the kit with the exception of the transparency, the stamp, and the ribbon. BUT this month we have a special for this you would be able to get the ribbon in your kit for an awsome price of 49.95. Below's picture shows what is included in the kit as well as the additional embellishments and phrases.

I think this is almost my favorite project yet!
Unfortunately the background paper that I used is now retired from the Angel Company...but I have to say I do like this little journal.
I got the little journal from Hobby Lobby and the took it apart, covered the book and then put it back together. BUT the most favorite part is the collage image that I did. I have new cardstock that I am offering for sale that I have been told it is kind of clay based. I am at a loss for this stuff. I think all focal images in my work is now going to be made with this stuff. It is awsome. Even with marker. You know when you use marker and want to use the blender to pull the paper usually pulls too? Well with this stuff IT DOESN'T! I couldn't believe it. It is great. Oh and it took my tan chalk like a champ and evenly too! What more can a girl ask for?
So anyway, the dets on this project:
Kamalaht paper pack - The Angel Company
Flower Collage Trio - The Angel Company
Burnt Umber Pallete Ink - The Angel Company
Brown Bazzill
Red Cardstock
Modge Podge
Tombow Markers - Earth - The Angel Company
If you would like to get more instruction on how to create a book like this or would like to order products from this creation send me an email I will be glad to help!

A card and gift for a good friend

This is a card and mirror that I did for a freind of mine. She just recently had back surgery and is doing so well I wanted to give her a little bit of something. The card is A2 sized and used Miss Moxie Designer paper from The Angel Company. I stamped the image on glossy cardstock using the Mouline Rouge Palette ink and then added Prima flowers and rinestones for embellishment. The Sentiment on the side says get well soon and is stamped in Iris Pallete Ink.

Products Used
Miss Moxie Cardstock - The Angel Company
tlstampindreams Lilly White Cardstock - 25 - 2.50
Moulin Rouge Palette Ink - The Angel Company
Iris Palette Ink
Prima Flowers
Simply Devine Stamp Set - The Angel Company
Linear Sentiments - The Angel Company

Now for the little something I made for her. The round disc is a mirror on the other side. I picked this up from a store that was discontinuing it. This is made by PSX and is raw porcelin. Very interesting medium to work from. I liked it. Only had two problems. DONT USE BLAIR ON THIS! The pencil ran on the porceline when I added the blair fixative. I had a small mess trying to save this puppy. Also I discovered that wax colorant that gives the shimmer clumps up just a little bit in this medium. All in all I like it

Products used:
Noir Pallette Ink
Prismacolor/Lyra Pencils
Wax Metallic Pigments
Blair Fixative (DONT USE THIS)

Hope you like these. I think she will

another project collecting dust

Ever wonder how to get stuff done? I think sending the husband out for the day does help. This is part two of my things I did from the weekend. I got so much done!
I am actually offering this one as a KIT!
This is a coaster box that uses 7 coasters that are 4X4 and are white. I covered them in wine bazzill and then modge podged the cardstock, this will give it some durability. I then punched each side and the bottom with my bind it all for the ribbon lacing. The images are from our new Butterfly Bits set. I used one of the open butterflys to create a very ornate design. The design is then mounted on matching wine cardstock and then the thin stip of patterned paper is from juliette. then I put in 4 crystals for the ends of the wings.
So Dets on the kit:
7 4 X 4 white coasters (punched with BIA OR left empty to punch as desired)
4 4X4 Squares of Wine Cardstock
1 3 X 12 stripe of Juliette paper
1 3 X 4 stripe of Juliette paper
1 4 X 12 stripe of Wine Cardstock
1 4 X 4 Stripe of Wine cardstock
4 Pieces of Clay based cardstock stamped with images above OR blank, your choice
8 Chrystals to embellish image
Enough Ribbon to make your box
Instructions on how to make the box
YOU ADD MODGE PODGE and your own creativity.
Kit is 10.00 plus shipping.
To do my box I used the following additional elements:
Burnt Umber ink
Tombow Mono Adhesive
Bind It All
Modge Podge
Marvy Heat Tool (to set image in a hurry :) )

More creations from the weekend

Here is another creation I did over the weekend. I am a bit late in trying some of these things, but had a lot of fun creating them. I still don't have my projects from Seminar completed LOL but these have been on my table to do now for a little over 2 I guess I can say I am just going in order of what I have to do.

This is a purse that I did using one of the

pieces from the pockets and pieces kit that The Angel Company has. The pieces are white and I wanted a brown for my base so I used one of the peices as a template.

I cut out the Brown Bazzill and then using my score pal I scored each fold so that it would lay down nicely. Inside the purse I put in a matching 3 X 3 post it note and then using the same design I stamped the flowers on the inside.

Products Used:

Rustic Chic Cardstock Stack
Brown Bazzill
Scrappers Floss - White
Scrappers Floss - Brown
Brown Checked Ribbon
Button from Stash
Bazzill Bitty Blossoms
White Versa Craft Ink (Flowers at bottom)
Basic Grey Magnets (to hold flap down)
Post it notes
Kindness Sentiment from the latest special
Button from stash
Yellow Ice Stickles
Chrystal Stickles
Transcendance Embossing Powder

If you would like further detail on how I created this Gem, or would like to order the product to make this, please email me.
