Up early!

If I had to get up early I would want this guy to wake me up!!! 
Kathy's new set and I think it is so great. This set can be used for so many occasions!!! Kathy is still not set up yet in her new house and has made a " temp" desk at her dining room table.....NOT the same!!! She is still making great cards so I guess it doesn't make a difference where you can create as long as you do!!!

Picture this

 I was fooling around a bit the other day trying to be inspired...It was not going well and I went into the "pile"...yep you know the "pile" is the pile of things you buy and you are not sure why but you will "use" it one day or you might "need" it. Yep, that is a closet in my house!! We don't talk about it much but we all know it is there!!! I went to my pile and found a glass frame I had bought from Ikea and I was determined to use it here it is....I think it turned out really nicely. I have some of the leaves and flowers under the glass as well as used pop ups to raise it on the glass ....I think it looks sweet.

Bag it!!

For the second project at our club night I had the idea of ...anything but a card...I wanted to show something that was easy but you could really get creative. My only wish is that I had had a white bag instead of the goldish one but I had to use what I had. So this was a 9x11 envelope I cut 3" off the top and then scored the other 3 sides ...2' for all of them ...I made some other creases and Voila!!! A really cute gift bag....totally not my creation I got it from SCS but it was easy and fun...I left mine simple but you could really jazz it up.

So sweet

I have been so bad at posting I know! I said I would share our club night projects and it has been almost a I had to come up with the projects and I we try to do something new every time...I wanted to use glossy paper because I have lots and don't use it as much as I should...I used the Rolling Marbles and made this background paper. I frayed the ribbon after I tied the knot and I didn't have Choc buttons so I used textured paper and punched it to the size of clear buttons....That all being said I wanted to tell you this card doesn't have the same layout as mine did.....This is my daughters card she made. So all the materials are the same the execution is a bit different.

The Friends invite??

So for Ashleigh's friend birthday..on the 24th we have to make the invite!! I have this as the proto type...I am not sure if it is "the one" but I thought I would share......She is having a "Premiere" the girls are coming dressed up and we will have a makeup table and hair station. Then we will  have the paparazzi taking pictures... when the are glammed up we will have appies and then dinner and the movie!!! So we thought a rock and roll invite was a good idea!!!

Happy New Year!!

The first day of the year usually brings promises and hopes for the following year......I have decided to not do anything like that but I will be working hard to make this year as wonderful as last year and I know that that will bring all the happiness we need...I made the little girls cards yesterday and here is the older version...I think I will see if I can go a bit younger and do 3 next time...I think a princess in the same style would have been really cute....!
