This card is a go-to favorite design of mine so I decided to share it for the Scrap it Girl June Challenge: Things With Wings. 20140601-151046-54646715.jpg I love it so much! It uses some of my favorite tools and supplies. Here is my card: 20140601-151204-54724975.jpg And a few close-ups: 20140601-151234-54754431.jpg 20140601-151231-54751917.jpg 20140601-151230-54750707.jpg 20140601-151233-54753107.jpg See why it’s a favorite? And it’s great for most sentiments- get well, happy birthday, sympathy, etc. Here are some of the products I used: (all from Stampin’ Up! Just click my “contact” button to email for details on ordering!) 20140601-151410-54850097.jpg The butterfly stamp is called Swallowtail. It’s a large stamp that can be used in a variety of techniques.

Another stamp set is Itty Bitty Banners I used my Big Shot (this thing is FABULOUS!) with Bitty Banners Framelits and Pretty Print embossing folder (retired item).

To achieve the shiny gold effect, I used Gold Stampin’ Emboss powder, VersaMark stamp pad and (another favorite) my Heat Tool and the cute little Embossing Buddy (not pictured… he was being shy)

My ribbon – OHHHH. I LOVE THIS RIBBON! is: 1/2″ Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon.

Choose inks and cardstock colors to achieve the look you want!

So that’s my share- want to get in on the challenge? All the deets are here: Scrap it Girl! and yes! There’s a prize! Thanks for stopping by! God bless! Kathy Bo

I love Facebook. Why? Well, first of all it helps me to know the prayer needs of others. Second to that, I get to know when neat things are happening with my kids – like the garden that my son The Boy and his wife Emily are planning.

The post showed them tilling the soil. I knew I had to do something to surprise and encourage them, so I whipped out my Cricut machine and made these:

I will add plant stakes to them so they can stand the signs in their garden. I think my grandLittles will enjoy the fun colors and shapes too!
Here’s how they came together:

20140323-201624.jpg
First, I used Cricut Craft Room to select designs from the Cricut cartridge Freshly Picked . Once I selected the various components, I arranged them on the virtual mat, wrote down the sizes and began cutting.
It wasn’t too difficult to choose colors- earthy, garden colors worked out just fine.

A bit of trimming came next.

Some 2-way glue and a bit of placing elements together came next:

Now it was time to laminate:

20140323-202828.jpg
I made sure to round the corners when I cut them apart since there will be some little hands in the garden!

20140323-202954.jpg
Once finished, I took them all outside to introduce them to their natural habitat! Here they are again:

I have a few more to make but thought I’d share now just in case I forget to before I mail them.

The Design Team at Scrap It Girl has a fun challenge: choose our favorite journal, calendar or notebook for the Favorite Things Friday Challenge.
Was this ever easy for me! I love this mixed media travel journal that I actually made a few years ago on a scrapbooking trip.

20140206-224008.jpg
It’s my favorite.
I have a lot of great memories creating this too. I met new friends and also learned new techniques.
My absolutely most favorite page is this one, where the kid leather glove (an estate sale find) holds tickets.

20140206-224508.jpg
Here are more pages:

Do you ever make a list of things to do, then get all happy when you can check some things off that list? Well, that’s what happened today. I have been wanting to make some little 3X3 cards for my neighbor. She is a realtor and I figured she would enjoy having some handmade thank you notes and sweet greetings to share with clients. I wanted to do something nice for her, especially since she is just so giving of her knowledge and expertise! Though we have not yet listed our house, she is always so helpful by replying to my texts when I’m asking stuff like should we put hardwood floors in the kitchen!

So anyway, I’ve had it on my list for a few weeks and today I had time to design some cards for this nice lady. There are six, with envelopes. Here they are:

The “Hey There” stamp is a single, and exclusive to the Paper Pumpkin! This is the new subscription I mentioned earlier. If you’d like to sign up, please add me as your demonstrator when it asks. click here for Paper Pumpkin!

The “Thanks so much” stamp is part of the new Oh Hello set found here!

It’s such a cute set- I love these cheery stamps!

20130122-225125.jpg

Papers used are whisper white cardstock and the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper. Look at all the super cute papers in this collection!

20130122-225157.jpg

There are more items such as the inks, ribbons and brads – all found here, in the Spring Catalog! Know what I love more than checking off a “to-do”? Adding sweet folks like you to my team! Just click here to find out how to get in on the fun! I love it, you will too!

Will I wake up in the morning with an email saying you’re on my team? I sure hope so!

That’s it for today!

God bless!
