Birthday Cards.

One of the items on my list is to make and send only handmade cards this year.  I have had more difficulty lately finding cards I like so I'll just make my own.  These are a few I've sent so far.  I'm not completely happy with all of them since I'm new to card making, but as least the messages inside the card were what I wanted.

First day of spring.

This is my Dollar Store birdhouse transformed into a happy spring decoration.

Best Friends.

This is my layout from prompt four of Shimelle's class - use cardstock.  I used kraft cardstock for my background and then used scraps for the rest of the embellishments.  I finally dug out my birds and branches die and hand colored those.  The hearts mimic Hambly's butterfly overlay and I used versa mark to add texture to the frame.

Leprechaun Shoes.

My kids rather enjoyed finding these shoes this morning near the window where our leprechaun escaped after mischieviously ransacking our sitting room/kitchen area.  It seems as though he left so quickly he lost his shoes as he dove out the window.  The pattern can be found here.

She is . . .

I'm catching up.  I used ribbon from my stash on this page and I made flowers from Shimelle's tutorial.

I'm trying to finish a scrap or craft project every day.  My goal was to actually keep up with the Something from Almost Nothing class, but I'm not doing that very well.  Today I should be working on prompt 4, but I just finished prompt 2.  I better get crackin' on prompt 3 now.  This layout was lifted from Mindy.  I hope she doesn't mind - I thought her layout was sweet and simple.

One down, one to go.

This is my first page in trying to keep up with Shimelle's class called "Something from Almost Nothing".  This class is designed to use up some of the stash we scrapbookers tend to collect and somehow never use.  In this first prompt (use metal), I managed to use 33 of  the 6,398,224,568,993 brads and eyelets that I own.
