More Mosaic Madness

I made a paper bag mini album out this great new paper available from Stampin Up on June 1st. It's call Quarterfancy. I love the bright colors!  I found a great way to bind the paper bags together on his video on youtube and adapted it for a larger album. 

The greeting stamp will also be available June 1st
 - Really Good Greetings.

I taped down the flaps of the paper bags to make pockets.
  I put several tags in the pockets.

Inside the paper bags I put photos sheets and used the
 Mosaic punch for make tabs.

It is already for some great pictures!

Have a great day ~ Shelley

Memorial Day Cards

Happy Memorial's Day!
Thanks to all our armed forces past & present for the sacrifices made to serve our great country!

I made some cards the other day with one of my favorite stamps, now retired from Stampin Up! Unfortunately my photo is a little blurry.  I gave some to my son to take to his co-workers.  He works at Veteran's center that assists vets that are homeless or on the verge being homeless.  It is so sad to think that the men and women who have served our country being homeless.  My husband also gave some to his nurse at the VA Medical Center.  She is such a wonderful nurse and you can tell she really cares for her patients.

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Shelley

Scrap it with a Song Let it Rain by Amanda Marshall

We are celebrating May at Scrap it with a Song
with songs about the weather. 
This week our inspiration song is from
 Amanda Marshall - "Let it Rain"
It is a perfect song for this week, we have had rain for 3 days! 
I love listening to the thunderstorms!

I used the sketch at Let's Get Sketchy to create my page.

I created my page in My Digital Studio.  This is my great nephew Derrick.  We went home to visit this past weekend and was able to attend his baseball game.  He is very competitive so I used the word DRIVEN from our inspiration song.  Their team is doing great this summer, only one loss! My husband captured some great pictures of him and his little brothers.

Hope you join us this month at Scrap it with a Song!
Have a great day - Shelley

Mother's Day Peacock Card

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  Mine was very nice, spent the day at home with my husband and son. Even got some crafting time in!!

This is the card I made for my Mother-in-law for Mother's Day.  She loves peacocks, I colored in some of the details to make it vibrant.  Love this stamp.

Have a great day ~ Shelley

Paper Pumpkin Card

Time really has flown by... I can't believe it has been two weeks since I posted a blog.  I have missed not having as much time to craft!

I loved the Paper Pumpkin kit from Stampin Up last month.  I worked perfect for my nephew's birthday.  He turned 11, so I couldn't have a card that was too much for a kid. 

You can sign up for Paper Pumpkin here. Everything you need to create beautiful cards for only $19.95 a month.

Thanks for stopping by ~ Shelley
