Loving this card, especially the addition of the foiled red paper in my layers.  The stamp is from Verve.  The verse is Proverbs 3:5.

Note book

My Saturday evening project.  It is nice to have something to do while the hubby watches the hockey game. 

I used paper from Sandylion and inked the edges.  The inner papers are simply computer printer paper.  I used a hot pink organza to bind my book after hole punching through all of the layers.  I accessorized with buttons and a name plate on the cover.

If I were giving this as a gift I could enter on the first page "for the times when you just need someone to listen".

Otherwise I could change my name plate to Prayer Journal - then they would make excellent gifts for my bible study group.

I am loving these notebooks and could see all kinds of uses.  Maybe I will need to make more!

Exploding box base

Base created but not decorated yet.  Will finish and repost at a later date.

Tri Shutter Birthday card

Again another first for me.  Received a Martha Stewart score board for Christmas and wanted to give it a run.  Paper is Grasshopper Pie from Lasting Impressions.  Stamp is a Hero Arts Cling with Spica enhancements.

Paper Bag album

Paperbag Album

Another first started over the holidays.  I used three paper bags folded and stitched together.  I hole punched the edge and added ribbon for a decorative effect as the stitching really is what holds this together.

Using the pockets on the edges that the paper bags naturally provide I madfe a variety of tags. 

 I really enjoyed doing this type of project.  I may work on other themes.
