Friendship cards

Created for an online memorial crop in honor of our dear friend, Sue.

layouts for April

Having several pics that couldn't really be cut down made it harder to work with that I ended up working out a block design. It wasn't going to work out in the album to make a 2 pager. I wanted to keep it less crowded looking, and needing the space for journaling, I opted to not use any other papers and outlined my open spaces and gave each a subtitle with a stamp. And I was happy to remember to use my DC stamp set!

On this one the brochure serves as a title.
I decided to keep this one simple and not add a title really or any embellishments though I had toyed with the idea.

basketball, Christmas, Disney

Our colors were grey and purple. Daughter's and son's are done the same, with a couple different pics.

Christmas Eve - I thought this paper was really cute and perfect but a full page design is hard to work with!

Daughter's Christmas pages:

Son's Christmas pages. His first page had to be single and I chose to make the 2 that would be facing as separate but coordinating pages.

Again, daughter's pages ended up not facing so had to split hers as single pages so I gave them each a title.

Halloween and Thanksgiving

My daughter's pages will not end up facing in the album so I did hers differently as separate pages rather than spread across.

DIY sticky picker upper

I made this using a dried out/won't work anymore gel pen. I just added a little Aleene's tack it over and over to the tip of the pen and let it dry. When dry this type of glue is tacky. Just lightly tap the end to the small item you're trying to pick up.  I added the glue just a tiny bit and let it set/dry a bit before adding more to build up the tip nicely. The glue is white when wet and clear when dry.

Two identical LO's - one for each kid. I needed to show both for a challenge. :)

Welcome baby pop up box card

I made my own cut file for this for a plain box and then used a border punch on the top. Title was cut with cricut and embellishments are some old cardstock diecuts.
