Card swap

So, I am in a card swap with 10 others. We will each make 2 cards and then receive 20 back (including 2 of our own.) I said I would make "new baby" cards, so I decided to do one girl and one boy card. I was rushing somewhat to get them done, as my parents are visiting soon - YAY! I'm happy with the boy card, but messed up a little on the girl card. Forgot to heat emboss BEFORE using the versamark to make watermarks on the rest of the paper. Ooops, yellow embossing powder everywhere! So, I turned the card over and dry embossed with the Cuttlebug instead. I really needed some texture on that paper!
Anyway... here they are...
BTW, how do YOU photograph your creations? I am having a hard time lately making the photos look good... and, no it's not the new camera! :)

Ok, ok, ok

So, several of you that I have met IRL have told me "I would not have recognized you from your blog picture." Ok, so I cheated. I used a picture that I liked from June 2004. I've changed it. Better now?!?!?!?!? ;)

Thought I'd share some pics I took Sunday...

Elsie had a friend sleep over Sunday night, and the two of them along with Tanner, had a blast playing out in the backyard. I just clicked away with my new-ish camera and had 145 pics by the time I was done! Don't worry, not going to share them all! :)

Tanner has a new obsession. He LOVES to use plastic shopping bags like "windsocks." I just kept clicking away and got some really neat shots. I won't bore you with them all!

I can't believe how much my little girl is growing up!

IT IS GORGEOUS! And, you get all of this for only $25.98! Don't miss out on this one. It will definitely go fast!

I hope I have inspired you with my projects!
And make sure you check out what Kim, Heather, and Amy
have done as well! :)

I wanted to keep this layout simple to showcase the photos of my daughter posing on the rock! I used a monotone colour scheme, and used dark brown fluid chalk ink to colour the letters and distress the ribbon and journal sheet edges.

Firsts. Gotta love them! And, who knew I would ever use flowers and butterflies on a layout for my son! I love how it turned out! On this layout, I again used the fluid chalk ink in alabaster and pink coral to colour the letters and the parenthesis. I also used liquid pearl in two different colours on the journal spot, the border strip, and the butterfly.

Once again, I used ink to colour the letters and I used TONS of stickles on this page! Can you find all the glittery spots?!?!?

Ok, hopefully my mom isn't checking out my blog today... and doesn't until Mother's Day! This card will be for you, Mom! Happy early Mother's Day incase you are having a peek! Love you!

I LOVE how this card turned out. I used three different colours of markers to colour the letters. I really like the effect I ended up with. And, the flowers were so fun to make. Also, what card would be complete without stickles?!?!?

This was such a fun project! I found a tutorial for it and fell in love! One piece of double-sided patterned paper. That's it! ONE. Ok, and some cardstock to put the photos on and the make the band... but really! And, it literally takes about 15 mins to make!

Here is with the band off and the wallet somewhat "open." When it is closed, it measures maybe 4.5 x 3 inches!

There are 6, count them, 6 different places that you can hold photos in this little wallet. If you cut pieces of cardstock for mattes, you can hold 12 photos 4 x 2.5 inches in size!

Another hiding place!

Here's the back when the wallet is unfolded.

Who knew there would be a photo there?!?!?!?!?!?

Oh! And another!

The back with the last hidden photos pulled out.

And, from the front so that you can see my gorgeous kids!
