A real scrappy weekend here - just what I needed! I'm actually caught up for the month now! Got two Pebbles pages done (will have to wait to show them off until they are up on the Pebbles blog though), did this little card for IAAS last week and then did the layout and the little card with the elephant on it for core'dinations.


This card I did for IAAS with their awesome kit - well actually this one was just a combo of some of the goodies I've collected from several of the last kit. Lynn always includes so many embellishments it's a challenge to use them up!


I did this card from papers in IAAS kit this month using the Card Patterns #27 pattern for my guide. Love their card patterns - and have loved playing along the last couple of weeks - great inspiration!



I woke up Friday morning with this page in my head. I love this picture of my great-niece, Hailey, going down the slip n slide and somehow this just popped in my head. Now getting the beach ball done was alot more challenging than I thought it would be - especially since I embossed and sanded each piece separately. Needless to say I wasted a few sheets of paper putting it on the wrong side to work - cutting out the wrong cutout but it finally came together and then all I had to do was stitch it down. The slip n slide I did using a crimper - love that tool.


I saw this saying and it seemed to be perfect for a friend's card. The embossing was from a Fiskars embossing plate. I've found these work better on the core'dinations papers if you put them embossing plate to right side of the core'dinations paper - then run them through the cuttlebug and sand. I've been dying to find the perfect card to use this particular embossing plate on - looks like elephant hide right? Thanks for coming by!
