Graphic 45 Home Sweet Home Card


Such a funny image on the cover for Paper Crafter's Corner Magazine Magazine Cover, this week! So without further ado, here is my interpretation. Am using Graphic 45 Home Sweet Home, Apple Pie, and Homemade pattern paper which reminded me of a mother working tirelessly.  I pleated with the Homemade pattern paper, and adhered on the right with Scotch ATG.  Put pop dots under the cut out piece with the frame. The bow and string with a pretty blue button to finish it off.
Walnut Distressed ink was used through out.

DCWV Country Fair Double Layout

 Here's the one layout for all the challenges:

I had SOOOOO many photos from my fun trip with my girlfriend that I couldn't figure out how to fit them all on one layout. Then, using the PCC Magazine Monday challenge, I pulled out my Susan Lenart Kazmer silver metal embellishments, brads, and my Project Life date stamp, to pushed myself to fit EVERY one of them on ONE layout!!! And here is the result!! Thank DCWV's July Sketch for the layout that I pulled from to match up with. Same papers as last week: DCWV's Treasure Stack. Other supplies not already mentioned are: Score-it-all tool to make the creases perfectly; Scotch Tape Glider, Beacons 3 in 1 glue to hold the flap; more Petaloo Daisies; Martha Stewart butterfly punch; Fiskars 12" Trimmer.
Links for challenges:

The Cutting Cafe Shop Birthday kit Card

I just received this gorgeous box of The Cutting Cafe Shop's stamps, papers, and goodies!! I jumped right in and played with almost everything. This is their Birthday Party Fun  stamp set which is divine, HERE. I colored the cake with my copics, E 37, E39, BG45, BG10, and C1 for shadow. I used Blue 2 in 1 glue for under the silver glitter, and added Crystal Lacquer to top the turquoise icing. Using some of the Echo Park Party Time 6x6 paper pad, I stamped the HB directly onto the white then stamped again onto the EP Party time paper, and fussy cut it out and popped it up with Tombow pop dots. Using the Cutting Cafe Shop's Birthday Party background stamp set, with Clearsnap yellow ink onto turquoise paper and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The red ribbon that came with the kit, seemed perfect to pull it all together with some pieces of the Echo Park Party Time Ephemera pack. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Graphic 45 Cityscapes album

Here's an album by Pine Cone Press using Graphic 45 Cityscapes papers, ribbons, and Liquitex bronze paint for the spine. Hope you enjoy the inspiration. I don't have pictures to put into it yet but am hoping to go to these cities. I put the album together with all the papers but with Pine Cone Press instructions. I took liberty on some of the pages such as the front cover being fussy cut and popped up. I also chose to paint the spine bronze as well. The size of photo will be dictated by the center of each of the postcard pieces, and smaller pics as well.
Challenges: Paper Crafter's Corner Magazine
The magazine inspiration makes me think of all the places we want to go.  In that, I thought of making an album for all the mini vacations my hubby and I will travel. Can't wait! If it doesn't count because it is from a kit, I didn't know.
