Event Calendar

Shhhh! My mother was looking for a way to track birthdays and anniversaries so I am giving her this for Christmas. She can record all the birthdays and important dates that do not changed every year and just flip to see each month. Close To My Heart sells these and they are neat gifts for brides, parents or students leaving for college or that forgetful brother or sister!

And the best part is you get to keep this calendar for years as you add to it!

Snow Friends Picture Frame

Using Liquid Applique, I easily created the look of snow on this easy and inexpensive picture frame using Snow Friends stamp set. I added Prisma Glitter to the Liquid Applique for a little sparkle! I was surprised how quickly I was able to create this gift! These little guys are adorable!

Origami Tree with Sparkles!

Oh Christmas Tree! Stamp club will have fun creating this card Wednesday! Playing with paint brushes and paint from my distressing kit and decorating with Sparkles - I just love these! They are self adhesive rhinstones - very easy to use and add just the right amount of bling!

In My Heart, Embossing

The December Stamp Set, In My Heart, was fun to experiment with this new technique!

I created layers of gold embossing, keeping it hot and then stamped into the embossing leaving an imprint of hearts.

On the left of the card is glossy cardstock with multiple colors swirled between sheets of a page protector and then dried. It provides and interesting texture!

Birthday Cards with Floating image

I nestled clear acetate in the layers to create the window of these easy cards.

Always helpful to keep a stack of cards on hand!

Birthday Cards

I needed to make a stack of birthday cards to have on hand. I have several men with birthdays coming up so I need them to have a masculine feel! Not always easy!

I used the Happy Birthday stamp set and distressing ink.
