Papercraft Business Challenge #7 - Use your OLDEST Paper!

Hello Everyone and welcome back for another 

Every Month the Challenge is Anything goes with 
an additional suggestion that is not mandatory 
but will earn you an extra ballot for the monthly Prize!

This month you are playing for :
a Lawn Fawn Believe in yourself  Die.
No automatic alt text available.

The Twist or Suggestion for you this moth is :

We all have some, stashed away , 
so go ahead and get it out & get it gone!!

Here is my Creation for the month!

These pop up cards are always a hit 
with the recipient! 
I tried to add some gold accents but they
 over powered the card so I had to cut back.

The back panel of the card has sequins as well, 
you can see them more in person, 
photo just don't due these cards real justice.

I usually steer away from these images, but his was just too much fun.
As I slowly age, I o not feel my age & my friends are a tad older, 
but even then, we all are pretty fun and youthful!

 The sentiment dies cut was coloured ombre asn the 50 just has glitter added. 

I like to layer a journal area on the reverse of the card, so you can add
well wishes and still keep the card clear, 
and the message is not displayed for all to read.

I try to take my time layering the card 
so it is just as lovely coming out of the envelope as displayed.

Here is my old paper, 
it is not the oldest paper in my stash , but the pas was FULL!
stay tunes for older posts this week!

Products used in my creation:
Hampton Art - Art Impressions - Big Birthday Wishes
MFT - Adorable Elephants ( Balloon)
MFT - Beary Special Birthday ( Balloons & Presents)
Spellbinders - Happy Birthday Die
Sequins for MFT, 
Paper Seen above, 
 Copic Markers, 
& Stickles

Baby Shower Favor

Hello My crafty Friends - 
I wanted to share something I made awhile ago but just 
haven't gotten around to yet.

I helped host a baby shower & made the favors.

These were just too cute - but very time consuming !

My friend Myra cut out these sweet treat boxes from me on her cricut.
I them embossed them with a folder, 
added the bit, asn I loves having the fabric rosette.
To me this is something you woyuld see on a onsie.

I thing wrapped the nail polish on tule & ties with a gold ribbon.
Then the nailposish slips right inside the onsie.
The onsie come with little paper slots to fold shut but I just cut that off.
I think they were amazing & 
they were a huge hit at the shower.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy camper Layout -

Hello all
 I wanted to share with you a layout 
I created from photos from last summer.

With all of the card making - I have not been making as many layouts!

 These are some of my favorite photos of Alex cutting wood.
This is one of his new favorite things to do at camp.

I just adore the look on his face!
The layout is from a sketch that I did not get
 uploaded on time to participate - 
It happens to the best of us!

I love making grouping & love these flare & enamel dots.
