Two Tags

I wanted to let the room moms for both my children know much I appreciate all they do. I snuck these into the envelopes they gave me for collecting money.  

A Card Of Hope

Olivia's Birthday Card

We had a birthday weekend, so Camille and I made this for a very special friend.

Making a birthday gift

I used book pages and some Alene's tacky glue, (note to self: pick a book without any cuss words, I almost sent this out with 2 inappropriate words showing) I painted all the wood black including the letter K. I glued on the purplish glitter and adhered the K to the frame.
I was inspired from Pinterest the other day and thought of making a birthday gift for a dear friends niece. She is turning 10 so I wanted to make something personalized for her. I picked up my supplies from Micheals and got right to work.

I sponged some of Tim Holtz black soot around the edges.

I then added what I call a diamond wash to the whole frame, it is hard to pick-up with the camera. 

another close-up of the "diamond wash" I created. I used 1 part glue, 3 parts water, 5 parts glitter. I didn't want the wash to be sticky and the glitter does rub off if the item is handled a lot.

April Stamp Club

This is the Michelle's beautiful purse made out of patterned paper,  she filled it with this beautiful magnet, and chocolate but I ate that so fast I couldn't take a picture of it.

This is a magnet with so many beautiful embellishments she made them all by hand. 

I love the butterfly and the pin has mini bugle beads strung on it.

this tag was Michelle's make and take. She taught us how to make these adorable roses using a circle punch. You cut it into a spiral and then smash it down to open it up. 

This is Jene's card, it is so classy. I love the embossing.

This is my Spring has Sprung card, I used bright colors which are not my usual pick. I like the way the ribbon is tucked into the layers.

I just love Chris's bright and beautiful card. She punched and placed each circle and glued them down for 10 cards! 

I am in love with this brad of a lady bug. The eyes even move.

Look at this pom-pom trim.

Terri taught us all how to make this precious quilting card, as labor intensive as this looks it is surprisingly easy.

This is Cindy's cutie patootie card.  She always does such detailed work. I wish I had her patience.

I wanted to show how she used crystal effects to make the flowers shine.

Our hostess with the mostest and Stampin Up pro Terri created this beauty. I am seriously thinking the flower punch will be on my next order.

Look at all the glitter detail,  and I just love the hat pin.

This is one of my favorites,  I love this punch and look how Kim punched out the white card stock and created the flower using the back ground paper, genius.
