Journaling note books

It is always fun to have fancy note books to write in they make great gifts as well. Many years ago I made one and sent it to my sister she now makes them for her friends. These use the composition note books available in many store at a very reasonable price. I cover the writing in the inside cover and the last page just to make it nicer for writing in.

Lovely as a Tree

This has got to be one of my all time favorite stamps Lovely As A Tree (115026) I know mine must be over 10 years old... I am gearing up for some stamp a stack events and here I think is one of my designs. Very simple to do just sponge a bit stamp the tree add dazzling diamonds. I also used Perfect Punches (120516) and punches 1 3/4 Scallop Circle (119854) and 1 3/8 Circle (119860). The Big Shot got used with Frame, Oval Scallop die (114521) this was the pattern for the sponging... I used confetti cream paper on this card.

Who doesn't like a snowman !!!

Hello stampers. Thanks for stopping by.. These guys seemed to be the rage last year at Christmas time.

Uses the Big Shot (113439) The Top Note Die (113463) and several punches... easy and fun to make, I do like like snow men we usually put up several after Halloween one very large one that stands about 7 feet tall I will probably post a picture with him later on.
