Page 5 in Emmy's Book

I really want to get this Display Album finished so I can show it at my next Gathering. I'm going to offer it as a workshop. Its just so hard to find time to Scrap with my work schedule.
This was actually a picture of Emmy in front of the Christmas Tree but I didn't want to make it a Christmas layout so I used the flowers instead. I love this picture of her she looks so pretty & sweet. You'd never guess at what a Trouble Maker she is by looking at her photos.

Furocious Kitty

I did another page in Emmy's Display Album last night. Its hard to look tough & scary when you only weigh 1 1/2 pounds! She tries to make this scary face to show us when she's mad but we just go Awwww how cute! :)

I used Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Nestibilities Label One and sanded the paper to distress.

Good Luck Card

I made this card using the new CTMH Feb Stamp of the Month. Its supposed to be Easter Eggs but I used the Eggs to make petals for flowers. The paper is the new Emporium paper.

Cupcake Card

I had to make a quick card for a co-worker. I would've liked more time to get the card the way I wanted. She loves Pink & Black so I used that color combo. Stamps are CTMH Cupcake Sprinkles.

Page 2 of Emmy's book

I loved the look on her face in this picture. You can almost read her mind saying "I'm taking a bath do you have to take a picture NOW??"

Emmy's 1st Book

Emmy adopted us on Dec 2nd from the Shelter. We went in just to look around & they let us in a room of cats in crates. The lady opened the door to a crate with 3 kittens in it & the 2 bigger ones hid in the corner & the tiny runt of the litter came running right out & climbed up DH's leg. She's been attached to him pretty much since then.

I just started this Display Album for her. The cover isn't completely done yet. I didn't want to add too much embellishment until I finish all the pages. I will add ribbons across the rings on top when its completed. It has 12 pages inside & so far I've done the 1st page on Adoption Day.
The Display Album, paper & stamps are all CTMH. Once its finished I'm going to use it for classes. I'm thinking it will take at least 4 classes to do a complete book. Or maybe do 1 Workshop where I have all the paper cut & then let them finish the book at home later.

Snowbunny Bellas Galore

I decided to make multiples when I make cards so I have some extras on hand all the time. I had to make a card for a friend so I made it in 3 different colors. I used Copics to color her in & then Liquid Applique on the fur to make it pop.

Manly Card for BIL

My BIL has been in the hospital for the past few weeks since before Christmas. I made this card for him today to cheer him up.
I used CTMH papers & the stamp set Make it Count which is one of my favorites.


I was looking through my Photobucket account & saw this card I made for a swap on SCS I love my Bellas! I used my Cuttlebug Embossing folder for the background & Nesties for the Scalloped frame. I colored her in using my Bic Markers. Now that I have my Copics I may try her again to see the difference in shading.

Basic Christmas Card Workshop

Here are some of the cards from the Basic Card Workshop I had in December. Everyone at the workshop was brand new to stamping & card making so I kept things really simple. All stamps, papers are CTMH
