4th of July card

I'm back with a 4th of July bday card for my nephew.  I believe he will be 30 years old!  This was made from a Sizzix Pop n Cut die.  I added a few Spellbinders dies for the inside of the card.  The sentiment is embossed.  The cutie below the card is my granddaughter who is 5 months old today.  Isn't she adorable?
Hope you have a good weekend!

Baptismal card

I am back with a post of a baptismal card I made for my granddaughter.  This was made with lots of Spellbinder's dies.  The stamp is a very old stamp I have had for many years and I'm unable to make out the name of the company that makes it.  Sorry about that!  I stamped and cut it out and added a few hints of pink on the bows, lace and hanger.  Pearls were added to the card for added embellishments.
Here is a link for the directions for making the Star Album that was posted previously.  Hope this helps!

I used 4" high pages rather than 5 3/8" (or whatever was used) as shown in the directions.  I used the amount of pages that I needed for the amount of pictures I wanted to display.  It turned out beautifully and my folks really enjoy it.  The book is very quick to put together too so that makes it even more fun!

I have had several people ask me about the wildfires.  Yes, I did have to evacuate for 4.5 days.  My house is fine, no damages here.  I will be going through the house taking pictures of EVERYTHING so we will be more prepared in the event of another fire.  If I go through the trouble of doing this...there will be no more fires so that is my plans.  I can't tell you how horrifying the experience was and the nightmares I am still having now!  Thanks for the prayers...God answered them!

60th Anniversary Star Album

This is a Star Album that I made for my parents 60th anniversary.  I believe I found the direction on SCS but I'm not sure as it's been awhile since I put it together.  It was actually very simple to make and I had seen one many years ago and always wanted to try it.  I finally found a reason to make one.  It is full of lots of photos, embellishments and memories!  The papers are all from one pad of paper...Lyric is the name of it.  The papers were well suited for this occasion.
I am FINALLY back home after being evacuated because of the Black Forest Fires in Colorado.  I was gone 4.5 days and they were probably the longest days of my life!  It's an experience I would never care to repeat.  I had 10 minutes to get out and it was horrifying.  I am so glad to be back home.
Thanks for dropping by!

Secret Garden Birthday Card

Thanks for dropping is a Secret Garden card I made to go along with the book I posted yesterday.  It is a stairstep card...although it may be difficult to tell from the picture.  The base of the card is the blue cardstock and the Secret Garden papers are cut to fit the different steps on the card.  Lots of embellishments were used to complete the card.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Secret Garden Birthday Book

Yes, I am finally back again!  I don't think I have ever been away for this long and hope it never happens again!  It's just been kind of busy around here!  So, here is a book I made for a dear friend.  It is using Graphic 45 Secret Garden collection of wonderful papers!  I added lots of embellishments and pulled it all together with my Bind-it-all.  I love how it turned out.
