Typeset and Jamie

Every once and a while I get a little scrapping done. I love the Typeset papers for the kid's school pictures. I also used Vintage Type(D1481) for the banner, as well as Save the Date(D1386) for the word "August" at the bottom of the page. Typewriter Keys was used for the "05". It is a retired CTMH stamp. X7139C Typeset Complements Canvas Shapes are great accents on a page as well as brads and Dimensional Elements Monograms. Now....if I could only keep the momentum going. He's only graduating from college this spring. :)

Oh, So Simple

Fast and easy is the name of the game sometimes. I love a simple card, and how much simpler can it be when you use our 4 1/2" White Daisy Circle Cards (Z1353)and CTMH's Card Confidence Program Book Wishes. On page 46 you will find two patterns for circle cards. I used Attention Getter at the bottom of the page. Also,(A1113) A Game is the stamp set and the Cranberry patterned paper is from Elemental. Cranberry and Desert Sand Cardstock, Chocolate and Cranberry Ink and a Cranberry Button with Colonial White Waxy Flax finish the card. Easy as can be!

Heart to Heart Color Challenge

This is my contribution to the Heart 2 Heart Challenge this month. We were to use Crystal Blue and Amethyst and if we were brave enough...GLITTER. I usually associate these colors with winter, snowflakes and snowmen, but I am tired of winter, so tried to do something a little different. This is a 5x7 card using White Daisy, Black, Crystal Blue, and Amethyst Cardstock. I used a card pattern from the Originals Book on page 86 called Terrific Triplets. The stamp set is D1306 Treasure Life. There are Crystal Blue buttons, Waxy Flax and Glitz Stardust Glitter Glue. The flower is really glittery in real life, but hard to see in the photo. Hope you like it.

Mojo on a Roll

Promise, this will be the last Mojo for a bit. I get these on my computer and fall behind on creating the ones I like. Actually I like them all. So many patterns, so little time. This is Mojo # 222.

A close up shot of the card. This will make a great valentine, don't you think?

I used: Colonial White, Cranberry, Chocolate and Desert Sand Cardstock, Elemental Paper Pack, Cranberry and Desert Sand Ink, Love Life and Say It In Style Stamp Sets, Dark Chocolate Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and Antiqued Copper Brads.
