Rainbow rememberance

Wow two entries to my blog within one week. Woohoo! Moving right along.

So this double page LO is my attempt on creative. I wanted to use up some little scraps I had soooo.... I took all the scraps that were at least 3x1 inches long and cut them to that length, I did that bc there is 24 inches divided by 8 colors equals 3 inches a piece. I did 12 pieces of each color starting with black, purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, red, then brown. I placed them edge to edge covering the whole page of CS. Then I took white shimmery Bazzill CS and punched 2 inch circles. Then I cut those in fourths. I wrote on each little piece where the paper was used, or at least the ones I could remember. Then I placed the Thickers.

Good way to get rid of scraps and remember things you have given away and remember the faces of the people you gave the gift too!

Multnomah Falls, OR

I absolutely love this LO! Tooting my own horn. I think I am getting pretty good at this stuff. LOL! JK! I think I have lost my mind!

I used bazzill cardstock as the background. I made a patchwork quilt look by using 2x2 pieces of paper (don't know the brand- sorry was in a kit). Then I triple matted the pictures, Added the fibers, flowers, and chipboard elements. Took black stickles to make the stitches. Then took yellow and icicles stickles to accent the chipboard. I used a silver gel pen to write around the quilt part. And that's all she, I mean I, wrote. LOL

Hope you like and TFL!

Best card

SO this is a card that I am going to send to my mom for her birthday. So I hope she doesn't look at my blog before then.
I personally love this card. The best I have ever made!
Anyways I used Creative imaginations South Seas paper as the background (double-sided). Then I stamped the background with all the stamps from Tim Holtz's set HABERDASHERY CMS105. Then I used a teal piece of scrap paper (sorry don't know the brand) and used the Tim Holtz's Sewing Room die with my vagabond die cutting machine. That thing was the best X-mas present I have ever gotten!! Anyways, I then took ribbon and wrapped it on like a skirt. Used another scrap piece of paper to make the shirt. Next, I took floss and wrapped it around the bobbin.
I finally used my new SewEasy design stitch runner. Then I took silver thread and stitched all around the two sides. That took alot of time but it was soooo worth it. I sewed on the fake paper button.
For the inside I needed to cover up my stitching so I decided to mat the inside. I used bazzill cardstock on both sides. Placed the words from Making Memories Sew.. on the front and Happy Birthday on the inside. And last but not least, I took Glossy accents to attach the hanger looking paper clips!
So this is my wonderful card. I hope you like and thanks for looking!
