Twisted Easel

Hi everyone!

This week The Paper Ala Mode challenge is to make a twisted easel card.  These are always fun cards to make!  Our sponsors are Rick St. Dennis and Sassy Stamps.  I chose a Rick St. Dennis image called Birthday Cupcake.

The little tag says "It's your birthday!" and was computer generated.  I hope you will come play with us - these are such easy cards to make and there are links to tutorials at the Paper Ala Mode challenge page if you don't know how to make them!

Enjoy your weekend!

Shadow Boxes at the Outlawz & Scrapbook time!

Hi everyone!  Today at the Outlawz Paper Ala Mode challenge we are making shadow boxes or Father's Day masculine cards.  I chose this adorable Umbrella Mouse from our sponsor Bugaboo and made a shadowbox and I added the twist of Father's Day by adding a sentiment to the cloud.

I have the image popped up on the back with some foam dots.  The sky was chalked, and I cut the cloud out of felt and chalked the edges of it.  If you look closely you can see how I added rain drops with some crystal lacquer.

Today I completed another page in my grandson's scrapbook.  I thought I'd show you what I have so far so I made a video.  I think I need to get a different kind of scrapbook that doesn't have the plastic page protectors, because I like to add interactive elements and the plastic inhibits the kind of the decorating elements you use too.  I'd love suggestions!  If you can't see the video below, you can just click HERE
