Cards with Scholastic paper

Happy Thursday! These cards are made with Close To My Heart Scholastic paper packet. With this packet I tried to think out of the box in making these because I know that not everyone has children or their children are no longer in school. I hope that you enjoy and are inspired! As always if you have any questions I am happy to answer them!

Summer Mini Album

So this is what we had for dinner last night and there are two boxes. 

 I cut the pages 6x6.

 Where the pictures are I found that I needed to sand it so that the glue would spread instead of pooling in one place.
 For the holes to bind it I measured in half and inch and up from the bottom and inch and down from the top an inch.
 I soon realized that my normal punch was not going to get the job done so I head to Hobby Lobby to see what I could come up with and my choice was a leather punch set and it works wonderfully and the price was right at $5.99.
 In this picture I am trying to show the detail of what I am calling my sand. I sanded the paper and sprayed with a mixture of re-inker and water.
 On the sun I stamped it twice in two different colors Creme Brulee and Goldrush and then ink distressed around the edges with sunset and on top with a sponge.
This is my finished, well almost finished, I just need to add the pictures and the embellishments on the pages.
The paper that I used is Footloose, Sweet Leaf, and Creme Brulee.
I hope you enjoy and make one of these for yourself! If you have any questions I am happy to answer them!

I will certainly post pictures of pages when I get them filled and finished.

Vintage Crusin' card

This is just one of the cards that my workshops are going to be doing this month. My goal is to do more masculine cards for my workshops and well for myself too.
I really like this card I think it has a vintage feel to it and lets face it what guy doesn't like old cars.
To make this card I used the Cruisin' paper packet, Grey wool card stock, black card stock and the stamp from the workshop on the go.

I hope that you are inspired and you create your own vintage cruisin' card for the guy/s in your life!

Lucy Butterfly Card

I am considering doing card kits that can be purchased and done in your own home in your own time. This is one of the cards in the kit. There will be this stamp, paper and the embellishments. There will also be instructions and pictures. All you will need are your basic tools and the inks. Which in the kit I am trying to use only 3 inks. Please let me know what your thoughts are and thanks for looking :)
