A Digital Layout

Hi Everyone,

I hope everyone is doing well. It's my turn to share a project with you for She's a Sassy Lady. I've decided to do something a little different for me. I've been learning to do digital layouts. It's not really hard, just very different. I like touching paper and embellishments and photos, so this is a big change. I'm not going to do everything digital but I thought that I would maybe just do one album of all digital layouts.

This is a picture of my handsome son in his junior year of high school which was in 2010. I have a hard time scrapping masculine, but, hopefully I'll be able to think outside of the box when it comes to the digital layouts. On this page I added a Design Paper sort of white washed, I put a newsprint layer on the right side. I matted the photo and put a slight shadow under it. I used another Design Paper, for a border and added some journaling and buttons, then added more journaling on the left side.

I'm happy with the way it came out. There is no right or wrong way to do layouts but with digital layouts, they take a little practice. I hope you enjoyed my layout. Thanks Sheila for having me again and I will see you soon.

Two More Dress Forms

Hi Everyone,

I just had to post two more dress forms that I made. I love these so much, they are so easy to make and very addictive.  I made one with Red Tulle and the other one is made with mini cupcake liners. I am going to adhere a stick to the back and put it in a spool so that I can display them in my craft room.

The first two I gave to a friend and she liked them alot. These two I made for my room. I might just make more for gifts.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

All Dressed Up

Hi Everyone,

Aren't these so darn cute? I saw these on a friend's blog, Kimberly from Stampin By The Sea and I fell in love with them. I didn't have the dress form from Stampin' Up so I looked through my cartridges. I was thrilled to see that the Forever Young cartridge had the dress form. I used my Gypsy to make it a little wider and found the flower, also on the same cartridge. I printed some out, cut them in half and hot glued them on to create a dress/skirt, then I used gems to create the necklace.

You can use tulle, ribbon, lace, whatever your heart desires. I just love these to pieces and I will be making quite a few of them. I thanked Kimberly for inspiring me :)

Thanks for stopping by.

Designers Challenge - Nikki Foraker

I made this card for the challenge at My Creative Time's blog. Nikki Foraker is the Designer and it is her choice of what we make and she chose embossing. I used the Vintage Wallpaper folder (which I love), I also heat embossed the heart which is from Emma called Forever with red embossing powder. This picture doesn't really show the shine. I cut a doily in half and ruffled up the edges and adhered that down under the heart. I used a punch from Stampin' Up for the two strips on both sides of the card. The ribbon is crinkle ribbon that Dear Sheila sent me some time ago. I used Emma's flower dies and adhered a gem to the center. I stamped the sentiment, from Emma's stamp set called More Gift Card Sentiments.

I wasn't sure about this card at first, it's a little different for me, but, I am trying new things and I think it ended up coming out cute. Join the challenge, it's fun and don't forget to check out Emma's blog to see all the Designer's gorgeous projects. Thanks for stopping by. It is much appreciated.

A Birthday Card for my Brother

Hi Everyone,

It's Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to share my project for this month. I'm so excited to be here again. Thanks Pam.

My brother's birthday is February 7th so I decided to make him a card. He lives away so I made it early enough to mail it to him so he would get it on time. I have trouble with manly cards. I guess it's because I really don't have many stamps/supplies for a man. I really have to think outside the box when it comes to masculine supplies and think that it's always good to have them.

I started with brown card stock for the base of my card (A2 size) and the pattern paper is from a My Mind's Eye stack called Follow Your Heart - Be Amazing. I used brown satin ribbon and tied a man's tie (just like you would a real tie). I used a gem to adhere it to the tie. I punched out a shape from a Stampin' Up punch inked it and stamped the sentiment. I cut out a mat of white card stock for the inside and cut a strip of leftover pattern paper for the bottom. I stamped Happy Birthday. I later wrote a personal wish for him.

I think it came out so cute and my brother loved it.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by.
