This mini book came out so cute. I had a really great time making it. I used a pack of cosmo-cricket patterned paper that I received as part of my birthday club packages and I really had a nice ime cutting everything. Rocket Red and Pearlescent Lime Brilliance inks where used along with Memento tuxdeo black.
The ribbon, keys and findings all came from the local scrapbooking store. I hope that you will enjoy this project and try to make one for yourself!

It is almost Christmas!
I can hardly believe we are about to drop the curtain on the year 2010 and open it a new and fresh onto 2011. May your Christmas and New Year be filled with Love, Joy and the peace of Jesus Christ who came as a babe to save us all.
I made the card above using magnolia stamps, I highlighted the images with C2 Copic marker and a silver Specia glitter pen for her veil. I used DCWV patterned black and white paper, it also is glittered and layered it onto a black layer and a white card base.
I will blog again after Christmas. Have a great time celebrating!

Just a brief post to show you two of the three black and white cards I made for a card swap on Splitcoast stampers. I embossed the butterflies and cut them out, then used a pop dot to attach to the card. The base of the card is a musical dry embossed score with a doily underneath the focal image. I also used pretty gray ribbon to embellish the card. Inside the sentiment reads "In Sympathy and Friendship".
The other card is a fun stamper card, the image is exclusive to a local stamp store and I used a transparency to emboss a large dot pattern. It is glued to the front panel with regular two way glue pen. It came out so adorable. It is simple yet very unique.
I hope you enjoy both cards, please let me know what you think.

Is that a bunch of pictures or what? If you lost count there are 24 of them! I have had a blast over the last few weeks trying to clean up, clean out and sort through my stash. I had very few duplicates (which actually came as a surprise to me).
I have more paper than many scrap booking stores I have been in. here are several of the shelves (12X12) that are actually filled with paper I am trying to "gift" to a new home. It is mostly "rock star" paper that my niece does not wish to have and I really have no use for it.
I hope to get some copic coloring done today, some more stamping and I want to image stamp all of my Magnolia images. I received two birthday gifts yesterday. One from my friend in California and another from one of the SCS birthday club members. Out of respect for their privacy I will not tell you which is which or their names. Ladies, I loved everything I received and it is all happily in a good home right here in my special craft area.
I am hoping to have a few more posts/projects for you all before Christmas. If I am unable to do so, I wish you the joy that having faith in Christ brings as we look to celebrate the birth of Jesus on Christmas day.
Stamp Happy! Live with Joy!
