Under the wire for Pages with Papertrey

How's this for last minute!!

I had this page sitting on my desk for more than three weeks, just needed the kick in the pants to get in done and posted

Paper is Bazzil and MME Fly a kite. I used a bunch of PTI dies, Fly Away, the eyelet border, the scallop circle (or is that spellbinders ?) Ribbon is PTI twil cut in half.
The little rocket is from my Fav WMS set, Half Pint Heroes

The numbers might be my favourite part of the whole page, they were inked in PTI Terracotta tile (2nd generation) and the embossed in clear versamark.

Cards and happy mail

Working on my latest page for the new Pages with Papertrey, hope to have that up on the next couple of days.

For now I have some cards and fun stuff to share

First off is a card I made for hubby's b-day (we all have our birthdays one after another in this house, fall is an EXPENSIVE time around here ! LOL)


It's based a card dawn made for a earlier MIM, it was a great simple layout to adapt. I used the PTI number dies negative to sponge some versamark on the newsprint, emboss with clear ep and sponge some SU pool party ink around them. A corrugated star, some scalloped canvas and some star trails make this card fun !

Next is a card I made using Stampin Ups digital software. I used some argyle DSP, and then took an A letter stamp. Changed the opacity so you could see the argyle underneath, and repeated the pattern over the whole card. The sentient frame is the same letter stamp enlarged.
Used my Half and half dies, along with everyday blessing from PTI.


Look at this package I got from fellow forum member Joyce (you may know her by her owl drawing avatar that her talented daughter drew !!) She ordered some things for me and had them sent to Canada, and look how adorably it was packaged !


And lastly, the biggest happening this October in my home is this.


My little guy..well my big to his first day in kindergarden !! He's still 3 (4 in a few weeks) and he was so excited to go. Didn't give me a second look !!

Thanks for reading !!

Hello And welcome to my new blog

Thank you for coming over from my previous blog.

The title of the older blog was created when I was branching out into invitations, and I was just getting tired of the wordiness..and it wasn't really associated with me so here we are. Staring over !

Here is a small sampling of things I've posted in the last little while. Im primarily a cardmaker that is starting to branch out into scrapbooking.
