Friends Fur Ever

Friends Fur Ever

“Friends Fur Ever” is a Story by Stacey mini-album that my daughter did.  I created the front “belly band” of the album to hold it close.  SG did the rest.  I only want to share the cover at this point so you can see how I used the Stamp of the Month (SOM) – S1806 A Bushel and A Peck on it.   The little girl in the set is great to use for some many things, one of which is to represent SG in things we create.

I used a retired pet stamp set from CTMH as well.  I tried to color the puppy on the front like SG’s dog, Huck.  Love our Shin Touch Markers!  SG love our fur babies and wanted to tell the story of how much she loves and enjoys them.  She picked the pictures out and did an awesome job.   On another post, I’ll share how this can be a great project for you and your kids (or grandkids).

I can’t wait to see what the new Story by Stacy products are going to be.  I decided these would be a fun way to “write” a letter to SG each year, sharing my hopes, dreams, and prayers with her.  One day, I won’t be here to tell her how much she means to me.  With these cute little mini-albums from Story by Stacy, I’ll be able to leave her a love letter for each year of her life, celebrating what she means to me.

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet.  I hope you all have friends fur ever – our pets that you can celebrate their stories with these mini-albums

Making Memories

Making Memories

While I’m here at the CTMH Convention making memories, I’m sharing this great layout using the Fresh Air Workshop Your Way and the Studio Sus Workshop.

Because I’m going to use these layouts to scrap pictures from our Appalachian Trail Adventures last year, I really enjoyed getting these layouts done.  These adventures with Aunt Lauren are a once in a lifetime adventure as she does not plan to hike the trail again.  Too much humidity for her!

The Picture My Life cards that you can cut out from one of the papers in the kit provide some great titles and journaling spots.   “Real Authentic Family Memories” with the word “Escape” through it, works so well because out on the trail, it’s real, it’s an escape, and we created some awesome family memories this way.

“Making Memories” is cut from the Thin Cut Alphabet.   Use the Fresh Air Compliments to make layers or clusters in different areas.   I used a number of different embellishments that I had around.  I love scrapping from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet.  Take some time this summer to celebrating making memories.  Time comes and goes fast.

Off to Convention

Off to Convention!

I’m headed off to Convention today.  It’s been a crazy weekend.  I’ve had a sick kid again!  Poor baby.  The past 5 weeks have been really hard on her and she could definitely use all the prayers possible to help her get past getting sick!   She’s had a tummy bug two times, Scarlet Fever, and now Croup.  =(  I had planned to have some more art posted but time has been very limited with taking care of her.  It’s hard to be 10 and still.  Heck, it’s hard to be 40++++ and still!!  =)

So I’ll be at Convention and that means a new Annual Inspirations and a huge retirement list!  Check it out and get things you want before they go.  I’ll share what I can from Convention.  This is a huge event for Sticky Boy and Sticky Girl!  Who are these peeps?  Sticky Boy surfaced when acrlix stamps were released and you can find him around the Convention.  It’s a huge game and everyone loves it.

Sticky Girl showed up about 2-3 years ago.  This year they are getting married!

 

The festivities should be fun and I can’t wait to see how it plays out.  They’ll be getting married on Saturday at our Awards Banquet!

June things to keep in mind:

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet.  Stay tuned for more on Sticky Boy and the upcoming nuptials.  Have a creative day!

Appalachian Trail and Fresh Air

Appalachian Trail and Fresh Air

You can get two better topics together with the Appalachian Trail and Fresh Air paper.  It’s really an awesome “marriage”.  I’ve started working on our jaunts from last summer to see parts of the AT when my sister hiked it.  This layout is from the Studio Sus Fresh Air Workshop Guide (you can get it free with a $25.00 product purchase from my site).

Here are some close ups of elements from the pages.  I used silver foil paper rather than gold.  There is no stamping in this workshop.  It’s done from the Fresh Air Workshop Your Way and a few extras, like the Silver Foil (or Gold Foil) paper and a few extra embellishments I had on hand.

I’m finding that I use the Thin Cut alphabet more than I thought I would. It makes crisp, clean titles for pages.

 

This cute cluster is from the Fresh Air Compliments:

The wooden embellishments from Fresh Air Shapes are a nice change.  They add a lot to the pages.

June things to keep in mind:

Rainbow Love

Rainbow Love

This sunburst card was inspired by our sale “Create a Rainbow”.  Did you see the price of a pack of rainbow cardstock?  Anyway, I can never have enough paper (well, my darling husband would disagree with me) and picking up a couple of packs lets me create some beautiful projects!  Grab your own pack and create this card!

 

 

 

 

Cut the strips 1″ by 5″ and 1″ x 7″.   Then you’ll cut those diagonally so you have several triangles.  The base for the sunburst is 5″x 3 3/4″.  The black base is 5 1/4″ by 4″.  Lay out the rainbow and glue down.  Trim off the around the edges and mat on the black.

 

Stamp the girl from the June Stamp of the Month, A Bushel and A Peck S1806.   Color in with Shin Touch markers.

She’s darling.  While SG would never wear a dress, she reminds me of her with the crazy hair and sweet smile.  =)  After you color, fussy cut out leaving a 1/4″ border of white.  Mount on black and fussy cut out leaving black border.  Mount in the upper right corner of the card using 3D foam tape.

Stamp the sentiment “I love you a bushel and a peck” on white cardstock and mount on black.  Adhere to the card base.

Add embellishments as you see fit.  I found some red enamel hearts and left over Florence Sequins to use.   Love to see your rainbow cards!  To encourage rainbow projects, here’s a great workshop you can get free when you purchase $25.00 of product from my website:
