Thank you

Another twist on a pocket card. Not my original idea. I love how this turned out. You have plenty of room to write a personal thank you note and it's bundled so cute! :) More to come, I have a few ideas. After I took the photo, I did add an envelope liner which added just a little bit of something more.

Birthday Cards

These were a lot of fun. Looks like I over-exposed the photos a bit, but they are really cheery bright colors. I should've cut more decorative tags on the Cricut, but I've been busy this weekend and this was just a quick retreat to my scraproom. I'm so lovin' the new Stampin' Up Owl Punch. I got it from Barb/Snowmanlover... you can get yours here

And here's a photo of the tags .... the card doesn't open.

And another version... I actually made this one first

Free Photoshop Template

Here's a ten photo template for those of you who would like it. Layout idea from ScrapbooksEtc sketches. You can download the template HERE

You are my sunshine

Totally scraplifted the idea for this from Card magazine. They had the sentiment that said "SUN" or something like that... so I changed it to You are My Sunshine and used my punches

I actually paper scrapped....wow~

I haven't paper scrapped in ages. I made a layout of yesterday's activities taking Alex to college. I couldn't wait to try out the new craft room....love it! :)

5 Things I Love - J Sprague

Jessica Sprague has been working on updating some of her previous classes with the new versions of Photoshop. She offered a discount to anyone with the previous classes if they would like to get the new layouts/kits/lesson... of course I jumped... this is one of her class lessons. I love all the freebies she includes in her classes, the kits are always amazing and a little refresher never hurt anyone. The first time I took most of her classes I had Photoshop Elements, so it's kind of nice to go back and watch the CS5 versions and see what little tricks I'm missing.

Baby Shower Card

A friend of mine is expecting her first baby... how exciting!!! Her first at age 43!  So much fun.

Best Wishes

This one was just me putzing around. The ribbon may be a bit too big for this card.

Simple "HI"

Made this one with one of my monthly kits from Taylored Expressions. Love this kit!

Happy Anniversary and Happiness Always
