Champangne Birthday Pop up card


Here is another card I made for 
my niece Maddie - Her mom wanted a 
special card for her 19th / Champagne Birthday.


I didn't have everything I needed for this card so I did what I do best - 
Improvised!!

I looked for free digital images that I could print.


My colour scheme was Gold / Hot Pink  & Black.
I saw this background of shimmer & knew it would be a great backdrop.


 I layered balloons with glitter , champagne , 
flutes, and sequins to make a full 3D effect.


 All of the balloons, flutes & bottle were all coloured with Versa Marker 
& clear embossed to give them a shine & 
make them more realistic.


 As you can see above everything was attached with acetate
so that all the items floated out of the box.


This is the back, I like to add this rectangle for 
the giver to write on.

Thanks for popping in!

Summer Layouts - Photoplay Lakeside


Here is a three page layout from some of our fishing adventures - 
There is nothing I love more than being in the boat fishing & 
spending time with the kids!


 This little fishing hole is only good at the beginning of the season 
but is amazing because of the waterfall at the dam.



The little man takes fishing very seriously, 
somehow he always figures a way that he caught the Biggest, The Most & The Largest!

These photos are from the mouth of the river - 
there is a huge beach as you enter the river, 
it is a favorite of the entire family. 


Here they are all grouped together - 
couldn't get a good photo of them all laid out.

Hope you enjoyed my summer layouts, 
leave a comment & I can come visit you and see 
what you are creating.

Papercraft Business Challenge - July Challenge ATG

Hello everyone - 
it is time for another challenge over at 
Papercraft Business Challenge!!
Link Up & play along Here: Papercraft Business Challenge

This month is Anything Goes!

Here is my Card:

 Friday was the last day of school for elementary school here,
 so I had a bunch of cards to make.
I recently got the retired Lawn Fawn - A Good Apple stamp !!
I love this stamp!

And you know me I couldn't make just one card!
I made a few, just all a little different.


When I get a new stamp set I try to make 3 different cards, 
If I sell all three I consider that stamp paid off & 
has earned it's cost back.
Or you can say I rationalize the purchase of more stamps!


This photo isn't as nice but I do like these cards, 
It was a last minute rush order & were picked up as soon as I finished them.

I hope I inspired a few of you to get out the stamp sets & use them!

Pop Up Birthday - MFT Polynesian Girl

Hello all, I wanted to share with you all 
a card I made for my niece's Birthday.
Her other aunt wanted a special card & 
I was so pleased I got to make it!


I just love the way this turned out!!
I used the MFT Polynesian Girl Stamp.
Maddie loves hot places & the sun.


as you can see this is for her 19th Birthday, 
I love the floating HB & 19 done in the metallic paper.

I Love the way they look sliding out of
the envelopes.  I play with the placing so that it is a
 beautiful scene as you open it.


  The back as always is a layers rectangle for writing on.

I am not even gonna try to deny that this card took a whole lotta time and colouring!!

Father's Day Tool Box Cards






Hello All I am here to share a few more Father's Day Cards I made.

These cards were created for the handy man dads.

The first is a tool bench. 
There are several different U shaped Cards out there, 
I ended up using a few asn combining them to get my desired 
card measurements.

I Love the way it turned out - 
I used red at tha is the colour of tool box
we bought my husband years ago & 
it's the colour my Papa had. 



 The top of the work desk is wood with some instructions
folded up on top, along with some small tools that weren't put 
away yet.  The hardest thing about this card for me
 was keeping a lot of the tools flat. 
 Tools are hung on the corkboards on the walls, 
A drill and pliers are hanging from the drawers
that are polled up so they look like real drawers.
 There is a spot for the sentiment from the giver on the back.

My second card is a tall tool chest with 
all sorts of tools hanging out from the drawers.


 This is a side step card & my first time making 
this style of card.  It was super easy & will
be making one again soon.

The inside opens with room for the giver to write.

Thanks for stopping in and visiting.
