Dotty for you layout

I finally found some time to play with my new Dotty For You paper that is the CTMH special this month. I love this paper!  The layout is from Magic (Ta-Da page 70).  The stamps I used are Adventure,Footloose work shop on the go stamp,and my Art Philosophy cartridge.  The twine is Maya Road.
I also used some chipboard accents I have had around forever. I used VersaMark inck and embossing powder on them and then inked over them.  The tag was cut out with my Art Philosophy cartridge.
Here is the second page close up.

Wing layout

So I have been really busy with yard work and puppies.  I got the idea for this layout from a page posted on face book.  I made a couple of mistakes.  the first being that I forgot to cut half my strips with the opposite diagonal.  I just stacked them all up and cut them all the same way.  Opps!  Lucky for me the paper is double sided so I just turned some over and used the pattern on the other side, then my angle went the right way.  I also had a hard time getting my 45 degree angle right.  Not to bad for my first try I guess.
Here is one side up close.  We made the tag at Michelle's. The paper I used was wings, and the stamp I used was Find Your Style.

Veranda cards

We had some sad news in our family.  A much loved uncle died and also a family friend had surgery so I set to work making these cards. By the time this post these will all ready be delivered and hopefully they will bring comfort knowing we are thinking of them.
These two cards were made using Veranda Creative Basics.  The stamp sets are Card Chatter- Sympathy, and Wings.  For both cards I used "cheater" faux pearls from Recollections.
For this card I also used the stamp set Universal Backgrounds.  I used it on the base of the card.  The paper is scraps from my scrap drawer.  I edited my pictures again with picmonkey and am loving that site!
Thanks for stoping by-  Scrap Happy

Easter treat package

I got the idea for these really cute treat boxes from the Stamp Scrap Create  blog   You start with a piece of paper that is twice as long as wide.( this one is 4x8)  Then score the middle.  Next fold in half and mark the middle of the half. (2inches for this one) Then score both layers from corner to mark on both sides.  Fold on scores and punch a hole in the ends to run ribbon which will keep it together.  For step by step pictures got to Brenda's blog.   Happy Easter.

Bad Dog!

So does Izzy look guilty?  Having a puppy is just like having a little baby!  This is what she did while I was busy making some cards for family.
It is hard to get mad at a face like that. I had a stack of ribbon I took out of my cabinet and she stole it off the window ledge. Do you like my pictures?  I found a new free editing website( thanks to a CTMH board post) pickmoneky.  It is free so I am trying it out.

Pemberly layout

For this layout I used the Pemberly paper pack.  I used the stamp set from the work shop on the go that goes with this paper.  I also used the set Card Word Puzzle. 
The border I used was the top strip on the paper pack.  I also used the how to book Magic again.  Mesmerize is the pattern I used.  The how to books make so easy to put together a layout. 
 I also used my scraps and extra pictures to make an 8x 11 page to give away.  I am not sure who will get it yet.  I hope they like it.  I am so happy to be able to get some scrap time in.  I also worked on my projects for the "It's my birthday and I will scrap if I want to"  party in may.  It is not that far away and I am getting excited!

Halloween layout

These pictures were taken in 2010, so that is how far I am behind on my scrapbooking!  The paper is Martha Stewart. ( Got a great deal on it after Halloween last year)  I used a recipe from the how to book Magic.  I just picked it up before they are all gone since they are retiring. The stamp set I used was Thriller.
I also made a 8x 11 page with the scraps and extra pictures.
Thanks for stoping by and Happy Scraping!
