Hi everyone, another wonderful month with Papertrey. We are to use scallops. I have altered a Paper container for my friend Christine's Birthday and I used scallops and a lot of papertrey dies and stamps. I hope she is to busy to look at the blog today, I do not want her to see before I give it to her, but it is so perfect for the blog hop. If you want more details leave a comment and I will give you more details. I have my granddaughter today, so will be busy with her. Can't wait to look at all the great projects. See Ya

Valentine's Gift

Hi everyone, today I wanted to show you a gift I received for Valentine's Day. My friend Christine made the lilly pad with butterfly and the chinese puzzle card. They are both so creative and beautiful. The card is gold embossed. She is going to have to teach me to make them. You slide the center panels up and down to reveal messages or images. Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day. Tomorrow I will show you two presents I have made in the recent past. I love really building a project and making in 3-D. Kind of like altering a project, but starting from scratch. See you tomorrow.

Hi everyone, today our challenge was to make some part of our card Mega-Sized!
So I couldn't go another day without making an easel card. I am not sure why I like them so much, but I LOVE making them. So here it is, a Mega-Sized flower. I used the Mat Stack #2 and the stamps that coordinate with the die. I love this and use them all the time. February new stamp set for Mat Stack 4 is coming out and I can not wait.

Day 2 Papertrey Ink Anniversary contest

This is so much fun. Go to Papertrey Ink to get a few download for tags or cards. They are really cute. So here is day two. I love making easel cards they are so great for the person that receives them. They can open and see both the front and the inside. Creating one is really easy too. It would be a wonderful experience to work with Nicole on a project and then be able to make samples for the blog. Thanks again for all the fun.
