Tri-shutter Birithday Card

I made this birthday card using this week's splitcoast tutorial...

...I used the same paper as in the frame project I last posted, but aren't the colours so much more vivid in these pictures?! ...we just got a new digital camera (Fujifilm S1500 Finepix) - and I'm loving it! Much better than my old Kodak Easyshare! ;)

I'm sorry I haven't been posting much has been busy...home has been busy... so a little less time for creating (and it doesn't help when I give away projects before photographing them;) Anyway, this is what I made this weekend. I was missing a dear friend who lives far away and so I made this frame and played with a coloring technique on their family picture:)

I used the same frame as I did in this project, and I used dsp from my Old World Stack (which I actually didn't get at the lss...I found it at an incredible price at Winners! It pays to dig through the bottom shelf!) Some of the flowers are primas and some I made using a distress technique and a scallop punch.

A little thank you...

Just a tiny thank you note I made using my friend's sip by sip stamp set that I borrowed. I haven't had much time to craft lately and the biggest thing I made this week I gave away without photographing, but I did make nugget boxes for my favourite Starbucks Barristas since it was 'partner appreciation week':)

Repurposed Bag

This was just a brown flat bag that I got some 12 x 12 in that I repurposed using the same concept as a bagalope (scores on 3 sides were at 2).

I really like repurposing thing:)

Thanks a latte...

This is my latest installment in the category of 'gratitude journal'. My current journal is almost full, so it was almost time for a new one, and this morning I had a couple of friends from club over to share images. I thought I would prepare a little make and take for us to do for fun and this was the product:)

I borrowed a friend's 'sip by sip' set to embellish mine:) You can see my previous gratitude journals here and here...

The idea of keeping a gratitude journal is simple, each day you commit to write down at least five things you are grateful for before your head hits the pillow each night. I've found it to be a life changing habit:)

Best Wishes

I used Dawn's instructions on creating a faux linen look on this card along with the parisien breeze dsp from Stampin' Up.

Father Owl

This was the father's day card I had made for my father-in-law this year. I thought the owl was appropriate as he knows somethin' about everything;)
