Memory Book

Made this Memory Book instead of a scrapbook!! What a lot of fun this was!!  I used Tim Holtz Film Strip die, Viewmaster Reel die, and put pictures in those, I used the picture fame Polaroid from My Favorite Things, tags, envelopes, library clips, ribbons, Tim Holtz old Jalopy die, and so much more!!

This is a vintage valise made into a little booklet with map pages.  Used the co'ordinations paper and sanded it to look vintage.  Added pix from trips and some journaling tags.  Lots of room to add on!!

80th Birthday...

I was commissioned to make an 80th Birthday Card.  So, here it is!!  Always hard to do a masculine card.  Used the Stampin'Up Countryside stamp set.  I watercolored it with distress inks, stamped with Ranger Black Archival Ink.  Die cut the 80 with the Tim Holtz WordPlay set, used the metal foil over cardstock, and then embossed with the Tim Holtz Rivets Metalplate folder (not sure if that is really what it is called), and colored with alcohol inks.

Rock On DAD!!

Fun, Fun, Fun birthday card for my DAD!!  I love this stamp and die set from My Favorite Things - Accent it CASSETTE TAPE!!  I cut one out so that the die cut actually made a cassette tape card on the front, cut out an extra cassette and cut off the bottom and popped it up on the card front.  Used the stamps to coordinate the front of the cassette.  Used the Tim Holtz on the edge die - Torn notebook page - to make a tattered edge on the card.  Edged it with ribbon and a Tim Holtz pin and Destiny Charm, that I added some white paint to, to highlight the letters.  Used Tim Holtz Gears and the Movers and Shapers Arrow to accent the front.

Here is the inside of the card!!  The sentiment is from the Triple Scoop Birthday Sentiment stamps from My Favorite Things.  I just embossed with a couple of different blues.

This is the inside of the Cassette Tape on the front of the card.  On the bottom you can see the clock hands on the edge of the tape.  As well I used screw head brads to embellish the gears.
